When everything falls apart, love remains . .

THE EDGE OF ALWAYS

Camryn Bennett has never been happier. Five months after meeting on a Greyhound bus, she and her soul mate Andrew Parrish are engaged—and a wedding isn’t the only special event in their future.

Review of The Edge of Always
Rating: 4 stars out of 5

Can Andrew Parrish be more perfect? He was perfect in the first book and couldn’t stop being more perfect in The Edge of Always.

As you read in the synopsis, tragedy blindsides them and it really did. I knew their little HEA was going to hit a bump and I was holding my breath when that part came. And it was heartbreaking! Life just seemed to knock Camryn and Andrew off their feet, but Andrew was determined to make sure they both faced everything together and pull Camryn out of her head and start to heal.

And what a better way to do that for these two…road trip! This trip was a lot of fun to read–they had hot, steamy romps, laughs and learned to live everyday to the fullest. And more importantly, their second journey was filled with love, forgiveness and learning to move on.

Andrew and Camryn are a favorite book couple–they’ve been through so much and proves that they were destined to be together–true soul mates. And this book gives total closure in their relationship. I won’t spoil it for those who haven’t read it, but the ending and epilogue gave me warm, fuzzy feeling inside knowing that these two live a very HEA and more!


The Edge of Always is our on November 5. You can purchase the first book The Edge of Never here on Amazon.

Release Event: GAME FOR TROUBLE by Karen Erickson

GforTHe’ll play dirty to get what he wants…

Willow Cavanaugh would be happy if she never saw cocky football star Nick Hamilton again. Sure, their fling was the hottest she’d had, but he’s way too much of a playboy to settle down with one woman. Plus, she’s got her heart set on a piece of real estate for her catering business—and Nick owns that property.

Nick may be at the top of his game, but all he wants is a second chance with Willow. When he offers to sell her his commercial space if she agrees to a series of dates with him, their chemistry is so scintillating that jumping back into bed seems like an inevitability. But Willow’s decided all’s fair in sex and blackmail. Little does she know, Nick’s playing to win…and she’s the prize.

Read“Come in here.” She grabbed hold of his hand and yanked him inside, shutting the door behind her and twisting the lock into place. “Let’s stay in tonight. It’s cold out there.”

“But…wherever you wanna go, darlin’, I’m game. My treat. You could order fifty lobsters for dinner, and I won’t protest.”

She grimaced. “I hate lobster.”

“You do not,” he said, frowning. “You grew up here. You can pluck a lobster straight out of the ocean from your dad’s deck.”

“Just because I grew up here doesn’t mean I have to love seafood.” She scrunched her nose. How she hated explaining this. No one ever got it. “I’ve never been a big fan. Lobster’s sorta freaky. Crab is too much work, not enough reward. I don’t mind shrimp, though. You can just pop them in your mouth and eat them.”

“I’ll take you out for all you can eat shrimp, then. You can stuff your face until you wanna burst,” he suggested eagerly.

Laughing, she shook her head. “I don’t think so. I’d rather stay in tonight with you.” She sobered up quick. The more they stayed in the better. This so- called relationship needed to stay quiet. One mention of it to the media, local or bigger, and all hell was going to break loose. As in, her father would have an epic freak-out.

“We always do that, though. Stay in.” He scowled. “Aren’t you getting bored?”

Oh, no. “Are you?” God, he was already tired of her. Really, she shouldn’t care. She should be glad. The faster she got rid of him, the better.

Right?
“No. Hell, no. Anytime I’m with you is good, Will.”

He reached for her, settling those big hands on her hips. Dipping his head, he bent his knees a little so he could peer directly into her eyes. “Are you getting sick of me yet?”

She pressed her lips together to keep from saying what she really wanted. I could never get sick of you. You’re the best thing that’s ever happened to me.

“No. Well. Your constant sweet talk is getting sort of old.” She rolled her eyes, putting on an act. Nothing Nick did when they were together was getting old.

His mouth curved upward. “What are you talking about?”

“All the darlin’s and the sugars and the princess remarks. I think you say that sort of thing so you never have to worry about the name of the girl you’re with,” she teased.

His face turned frightfully solemn. “You really think that?”

Uh oh. She shrugged. “I’ve wondered.”

“Really.” His fingers bit into her flesh, he held her so tight.

“Maybe?” He had her doubting herself. How did he do that?

Dope. He constantly keeps you on edge.

“Trust me, I always know who I’m with when I’m with you.” He kissed her—the softest, sweetest kiss ever. So soft, so sweet, she immediately wanted to weep when he pulled away to murmur against her lips, “Willow.”

He never called her Willow. Ever.

Treasure Your Love picks up right after book 2 and it is full of action, mystery and lots of Jett and Brooke’s steamy romps! We’ve grown to love these two characters and sad to see them go, but hopefully we get a little more after their little bundle of joy arrives 🙂

There are BIG secrets and plenty of scandal that put Jett and Brooke’s relationship to the test. And wow–it was shocking, and it kept us on the edge of every page! We definitely won’t spoil it for you, but we can say the author kept throwing us curve balls throughout the book. You’d think they overcome one glitch, but then another one kept coming at them. But both Jett and Brooke were determined to stick together and see everything through.

As always, Jett couldn’t get any more swoon-worthy. He was perfect and willing to do anything to save Brooke and his relationship. Again, we’re hoping to get a little more in the upcoming novella that we heard was coming out soon. So hoping to get a perfect HEA for these two!

OffChanceDigitalCoverHe is seeking absolution.

Flynn Caldwell has a hero complex and it’s one of the reasons he joined the New York City Fire Department. He has spent his entire professional career trying to atone for that one person he failed to save. Because, if he can do that, then perhaps he can be worthy of love again.

She is seeking escape.

Together, they have the chance to become complete.

Flynn and Rowan’s worlds exist miles apart, but when a chance meeting brings them together, neither of them can deny the instant pull that connects them to each other. What starts as a tiny spark eventually flares into a fire so hot, it refuses to be extinguished.

Both are willing to jump feet first into the flames to see where it takes them, despite the risk of being burned

Off Chance is the perfect end of the Off Series. We’re sad to say goodbye to the Caldwell men!

Flynn Caldwell, hot NYC Firefighter with a heart so big–he’s willing to help anyone no matter what. And the reason…he’s trying to make up what happened to him in a tragic event many years before.

Rowan Page, what a character! She’s a bit broken, but absolutely the most determined character we’ve read about so far. Not matter what life threw her, she was going to fix it herself and doesn’t need anyone to help.

Flynn meets Rowan during a call and couldn’t believe what he saw in his fire rescue.  Flynn’s helpful nature kicks in and helps Rowan out–not only does he save her, but he goes beyond the call of duty.

Rowan is grateful for Flynn, but still hesitant with him. She was in a bad situation, with bad people after her and didn’t want Flynn involved. But slowly these two can’t stop the attraction between each other, but both afraid to take the next step forward. Eventually these two make it, but it’s not without drama to get to their HEA.

And the epilogue was perfect. It closed out the entire series with all the characters and how their life carried on!
