Sunset Sail, by Shannyn Leah

Sunset Sail (The Caliendo Resort, #3)


The Cohen Cruise Line and Caliendo resort are merging. Emma Caliendo and her sister, Izzy, set sail on the maiden voyage to be two of the faces of this new resort venture. Izzy is up for fun in the sun, but Emma wants to steer clear of the Cohen men, who are nothing but a bunch of womanizers. She’s especially keen on avoiding Grayson Cohen.

Grayson, a childhood acquaintance, is now an arrogant, self-centered ladies’ man whose face is plastered all over the cruise’s advertising campaign. Emma can’t seem to turn a corner without seeing his stupid, conceited face.

Nevertheless, when Grayson starts seeking her out, platonic badgering becomes sexual teasing and Emma discovers she’s not as repelled by Grayson as she thought. In fact, she can’t help but notice the real man beneath the haughty exterior.

Suddenly, a three-week cruise fling with a Cohen man is exactly what she desires, but will walking away from him when it’s all over be as easy as she’s convinced herself?


My review:

** ARC provided in exchange for an honest review. **

Shannyn Leah has done it again!  This time instead of the drama and mystery surrounding the Caliendo file room, the “will-they” or “won’t-they” or even the possible “have-they-already” cat and mouse between Emma and Grayson takes place on the high seas during a three-week business/vacation cruise.  Imagine being on a cruise with your three closest friends and having eye candy galore.  I laughed so hard throughout this book my throat burned and stomach hurt.  An ideal beach read for those looking for a book while heading on vacation.  Two words, no, make that two sets of two words, can easily summarize this book.  Silver Fox.  Naughty Bingo.  And both will make you overheat.  I swear I got sunburnt while reading indoors!

Dillon GreyWolfe Bounty Hunter: Mending Hearts, by Ardent Rose and by Tim Dutton

Dillon GreyWolfe Bounty Hunter: Mending Hearts (DGW Book 2)


Dillon GreyWolfe takes a vacation to let his heart heal. The cold winds of Colorado seemed the perfect spot, Manitou Springs held the perfect attraction. Until one morning he notices a beautiful woman with a baby in danger. Vacation over time to be a protector.


My review:

The bounty hunter series continues with the attempt of healing his heart and taking a vacation.  (This is a stand-alone story but references to instances from the first release.)  Dillon’s natural protector instincts kick in as he sees a woman in danger and he does what every distressed female wishes by sweeping in and taking her out of that situation.  I saw character growth in Dillon in this story and anxiously await the next installment.

My rating:  Jameson

How to Marry Your Wife, by Stella Marie Alden

How to Marry Your Wife


What foul devilry is this? They told her he was dead. After six long years without a word, her knight falls onto his knees and sings poetry. Then he denies their son? Heed this well. She’s no longer an innocent who’ll giggle and tarry on his every word. The sharp edge of her tongue and knife is the only welcome he’ll get. She’ll not marry him. The pain would be too much to bear should he ever leave again.

Her attitude is beyond understanding. What voice did he have? The king commanded and he obeyed. Regardless of her hatred, the Templar insists they wed. This time she will travel with him and he will win back her favor. It’s a long road from London to Hadrian’s Wall. Evil deeds weave a plot laced with castles, kidnappings, and missives. Will the treacherous journey split them asunder forever? Mayhap only in heaven will he rekindle the passion they once shared.


My review:

My favorite character from “How to Train Your Knight” takes center stage in this humorous tale of how miscommunication can bite you in the butt.  (This is a stand-alone novel but with carryover characters.)  It was quite entertaining to see the cheeky Sir Thomas be vexed so easily with the tables being turned due to the actions of a well-matched female.  I chuckled, aloud, at each of the nick-names given to Sir Thomas; and made up some of my own.  The cherry on the top of this story for me was that the secondary characters were given full acknowledgement and not simply relegated to the background.  And the final sentence…let’s just say my eyes enlarged to an almost cartoonish size.  

My rating:  Redbreast

Synopsis

“Some people say that time heals all wounds, but no. Time only deepens the wound. And when I saw Olivia that night in the club, I realized I hated her now more than ever.”

Connor Matthews, former Marine and gun for hire, is not what you’d call the quintessential businessman. But when his father’s unexpected passing leaves the family business to him and his brother, Connor agrees to take over until his brother finishes his last tour of duty. Connor resigns himself to a life of dull meetings and paperwork, but quickly finds himself mired in his father’s web of shady business deals. And in the midst of the mess is Olivia Taylor, his gorgeous and headstrong ex-girlfriend.

Since they last parted, Olivia has known nothing but grief, heartache, and loss. Despite it all, she’s built a life for herself—a life with no room for the likes of Connor Matthews. She’s survived more than most could endure, but Connor has the ability to ruin everything she’s worked so hard to achieve. She must put the past behind her in order to survive . . . but can she forgive the man who broke her heart?

Excerpt

*Excerpt from Chapter 4, Olivia’s perspective

I turned away from the bar, and my heart started pounding hard in my chest. The tray slipped from my hands and crashed to the floor.

I stood stupidly, just staring. My lips parted, my hands still outstretched. I couldn’t take my eyes off him.
A fist of pain clawed at my chest.

“Liv?” Bobby came around from behind the bar and knelt down to pick up the broken glass.

I barely noticed the splash of cold, sticky alcohol that had run over my high heels.

“Olivia? You okay?” Bobby stood in front of me now, blocking . . . him. HIM. Oh my God. This couldn’t be happening.

And then he saw me. His eyes narrowed in, and a look of shock—no, dread—curled its way over his face.
“Olivia? Talk to me.” Bobby was snapping his fingers in front of my face.

I shook my head. “What?” I shifted my attention to Bobby. “Yeah, I just—I don’t know what happened.” I kneeled down to help clean the mess before any of the customers slipped.

A pair of black shoes stopped in front of me. I pulled my gaze up the dark denim jeans to the trim waist and up to the hard chest—a chest I’d touched so many times before.

His hand was on my arm. He was helping me up.

No. Goddamn him. No.

I sucked in a breath as I lurched back to my feet, but his hand was still placed on my arm, like it had any business there . . .

“Olivia.”

God, the sound of my name on his lips still had the same old effect. Chills and heat all at the same time. I swallowed, pulled my arm away, and forced myself to look up into his soft green eyes.

“Connor.”

He raked a hand through his freaking perfect brown hair—as always, it had that sweet, just-fucked look. Damn him. He focused on my lips for a moment and drifted back up to my eyes.
“Hi, I’m Lauren.”

I hadn’t even noticed the woman standing next to him before. “Hi.”

“You two know each other?” The woman glanced in Connor’s direction.

No sound escaped his lips. A flash of a memory pushed forth in my mind—his mouth on my neck, trailing kisses down my body. Heat shot between my legs.

No. No. No. This couldn’t be happening.

“Um,” I finally forced out a word, but I wasn’t sure what I said. Was it English?
Since Connor seemed to have no intention of speaking, and I was tongue-tied, the brunette to his left spoke up. “Do you work here?”

I think I moved my head up and down, but I couldn’t be sure. I still couldn’t take my eyes off Connor, and he had yet to rip his heated gaze from my face.

“We have a meeting with Declan.”

Her words had me snapping my attention in her direction. “Oh. Okay.” Oh my God, that must mean . . . “Did your father—”
“Yes,” was all he afforded me, and his mouth tightened.

“So, you’re running the company now?”

He nodded. Clearly he had no desire to talk, which suited me just fine. I didn’t want to talk to him, either. “Follow me. Mr. Reid is expecting you.” I turned my back, but I could feel his eyes on me.

From the moment she arrives in Charlotte, Kate is tongue-tied by the devastatingly gorgeous former Marine and intelligence genius turned multi-millionaire entrepreneur. Michael seems at first glance to be the perfect catch, except for one problem. He doesn’t do relationships. And Kate doesn’t do one-night stands.

But as the tension mounts between them, Kate discovers she has larger problems—an untraceable stalker . . . and a dangerous past. When Michael offers his protection, Kate is grateful, and yet afraid. For as they grow closer, she realizes that Michael has his own secret past. And while he might save her life, he will surely break her heart.
