Forgiveness by Carrie Ann Ryan – Now Available!

 Redwood Pack Book 4.7

Adam Jamenson’s courtship of his mate wasn’t the most conventional. In fact, it didn’t exist. Though he knows Bay loves him with every ounce of her soul, he needs to prove to her that he’s worth it. Not only for her, but for himself. While they move on and learn to be the Enforcer mated pair, Bay will find herself on a path that leads her to a history beyond just her and Adam’s mating. When she finds a locket rich in history and memories, she’ll do all in her power to see those involved found and remembered. With Adam by her side, they’ll both find the true meaning of forgiveness.

Author’s Note: This is a novella set between books 4 and 5 to give you a taste of Bay and Adam. It is best that you have already immersed yourselves in the Redwood Pack world, however even new readers will enjoy a glimpse of one of the Redwood’s favorite couples.

Available Digitally: Amazon | Barnes & Noble | kobo | ARe | iTunes

First, admire the pretties, then join me under the images to find out how you can enter to win a $10 GC to either Amazon or Barnes & Noble (winner’s choice). And by the way, EVERYONE who promotes can request a free ecopy of A VERY SOUTHERN AFFAIR, a romantic comedy from Elaina Lee.

Review – Texas Two Step by Cynthia D’Alba

Texas Two StepBlurb
After six years and too much self-recrimination, rancher Mitch Landry is ready to admit he was wrong. He’d loved Olivia Montgomery but commitment wasn’t high on his list back then. That was his first mistake. He’s just divorced his second, and he’s set to do whatever it takes to convince Olivia to give him another try.

Through hard work, determination and more than a few tears, Olivia survived the break-up with Mitch. She’s rebuilt her life around her business and the son she loves more than life itself. She’s not proud of the mistakes she’s made—particularly the secrets she’s kept—but when life hands you manure, you use it to make something better of yourself…lest you get stuck in it.

At a hot, muggy Dallas wedding, they reconnect. Olivia’s first instinct is to play it cool, but after one devastating kiss things flare real out of control, real fast. Maybe a quick roll in the hay will get him out of her system once and for all. Funny thing about hay though, once it’s tangled in your hair, getting it out risks revealing things that were never meant to see the light of day.

Thoughts
To say I went into this book not liking Mitch very much is a huge understatement. I knew I would end up liking him, but I never like the heroes who break up with someone they love because they think that’s what’s best for the other person. To me that’s just selfish. Why wouldn’t they take into consideration what the other person says they want if that’s the case.  It’s just a cop out if you ask me.  He did finally grow a pair and worm his way into my heart. Though it took him a little longer to get there.

Olivia, I liked her from the jump. She toughed it out and made it without him through a lot of hard times. The only thing I didn’t like was something she didn’t like about herself, the fact that she basically used Drake to try to get over Mitch. He deserves better than that and hopefully we’ll get to hear about him and Magda getting together soon (hint hint).

Joanna St. Claire is the typical spoiled, manipulative little rich bitch that I love to hate. I wanted to punch her in the face. I was glad Mitch found out the truth and wish we could’ve read about that scene and how he put her in her place. She deserved it.

I hope there are several more stories in this series. I think Travis deserves his own story as well as Drake. He lost his first wife and those make the best love stories. I can’t wait to see where Cynthia takes him and the rest of Olivia and Mitch’s brothers.

Review – Close to You (A Laurel Heights Novel) by Kate Perry

Close to YouBlurb
When Treat Byrnes walks into her bookstore café, Eve Alexander wants to eat him up. Bad boy isn’t her usual flavor, but for the sexy contractor, she’s willing to take a walk on the wild side.

Treat meets Eve on a reconnaissance mission for his mother, who owns a neighboring teashop, but he keeps going back to Eve for her sweet smile and sassy shoes. He has a history of falling for damsels-in-distress, but Eve doesn’t need rescuing. Not even when her cafe is sabotaged.

But when Treat finds out the saboteur is his own mother, he knows he has to do something before things go too far.

Thoughts
This is the second book in the Laurel Heights series and the second book of Kate Perry’s that I’ve read. Perfect for You, the first book in the Laurel Heights series was the first. I loved both of these books and will definitely be reading the rest of the series (see my review for Perfect for You here). Close to You was a really good and quick read. I love that I didn’t find typos and grammatical errors. It’s so refreshing to read a book and not want to mark it up. I find that this is the case with both of the books I have read by Kate Perry. Her stories flow together seamlessly and the words just meld so well.

I love the conflict and how it’s resolved. Kate Perry drew me in and had me feeling betrayed and pissed right along with her characters. I feel like I could walk out my door and meet Treat or Eve either one. The secondary characters are the same. She makes everyone seem so real. I love when an author does this and find that it’s much rarer than you would suspect. Kate Perry is fast moving up on my list of favorite authors. I can’t wait to read more from this series.
