5 STARS!

Release Date: October 8, 2019

Publisher: Forever

SYNOPSIS

Following the sudden death of his wife, Nathan Bell has spent nearly two years burying himself in work and neglecting his biggest responsibility: his daughter. Overcome with guilt, he wants to connect with little Marley, but he doesn’t know how to do it alone. And then Jenna Savage throws him a lifeline.

A single mom of twins, Jenna is more than capable of taking care of Nate’s adorable two-year-old, and wants to help Nathan however she can. Soon, attachments are made, forcing Jenna and her kids into new territory. And the closer everyone becomes, the more right it feels.

Falling in love forces Nathan to face his biggest fear, and when hearts, both big and little, are on the line, the only thing scarier than needing someone is losing them all.

REVIEW

This damn book. I loved every moment of it. Single parent romances are just so heartwarming, and this one even more so.

J. Daniels does such a good job at actually making the children characters that fuel the story. I fell in love with the kids, which made me so much more invested in the main characters and the interactions they had with each other’s children. It was impossible to not to feel for Nathan. And Jenna is just what he needs. There are some ups and downs, but not over the top drama which I also appreciated. I’m so very happy I picked this one up, and now I’m going to add the previous books in the Dirty Deeds series to my TBR!

Deadly Obsession by April Hunt

4 STARS!!

Release Date: April 30, 2019

Publisher: Forever

SYNOPSIS

Someone is watching their every move.

After a lifetime spent in and out of hospitals, Zoey Wright is tired of playing it safe. She’s ready to take charge of her own life and get out of her comfort zone, starting with a new job as a CSI agent. But when her childhood crush Knox Steele gets pulled onto her case, Zoey needs to put her feelings for him aside or more women will die at the hands of the serial killer preying on her hometown. 

Former Army Ranger Knox Steele is back in Washington to help his brothers open an elite private security firm. He never expected to stumble onto a crime scene, or see his best friend’s little sister working it. Zoey is all grown up now, and the attraction between them is electric, despite his best efforts to resist it. But all that changes for Knox when he realizes the victims have one thing in common . . . and Zoey might be next.

REVIEW

Okay, the new Steele Ops series is off to a great start! I read this book fairly quickly, and although I could guess parts of the plot, I still couldn’t put it down. I loved Zoey! She’s been coddled her whole life, and for good reason, but she’s ready to live her life outside the safe zone. Her standing up for herself just made me smile. She’s just a great female lead! Then there is Knox Steele. Yum. He’s a little damaged, a little alpha, and whole lot of sexy. Don’t get me wrong, he has these moments where he is a total idiot, but don’t we all when it comes to the people we care about? The way these two come together is so enjoyable! Plus, the suspense of whether or not Zoey might be the target of the serial killer they’re all trying to catch makes this a book that keeps you captive the whole way through.
