SYNOPSIS: For Regan Penhaligon, there’s no better place to run to than the exclusive Ardnoch Estate in the remote Scottish Highlands. Her impulsive behavior has finally caught up with her and Regan’s visit with her sister, Robyn, is an opportunity to hide from someone who has grown dangerously obsessed with her. Determined to make amends for her mistakes, Regan plans to repair her relationship with Robyn by staying close. And when an offer of help comes from Thane Adair, Regan gratefully accepts. Widower, Thane, needs a new nanny housekeeper for his two young children and when they bond with Regan Penhaligon, he offers her the job. But as the weeks pass and the complex American reveals who she really is, Thane struggles with his growing attraction to her. Regan never expected to feel so intensely for Thane, but she can’t deny her passion for him or her love for his children. When someone from Thane’s past threatens his family, Regan wants to be his pillar of support. However, his continued inability to trust her might just destroy their chance at future happiness… and the person who drove Regan to Ardnoch might snuff out her chance for any future at all.


There With You is Book 2 in the new Adair Family Series!


REVIEW: If you’ve read my reviews for a while, you might know that I love a good single dad/nanny romance. And this one was HOT, HOT, HOT! This book had a lot going on, and not just the steam level!! Samantha Young writes these emotionally charged characters and scenes so well. The connections and friendships were just so interesting. And I loved getting more from this world. Not to mention some nail-biting-suspence. This one has the recipe for perfection. It was almost there for me, but I felt it had a few too many dramatic scenes. I also think that reading the first book will add to the reader’s enjoyment of this one, so I kind of wish I did a reread. I’m sincerely looking forward to seeing what the next Adair book brings us!!

Here With Me by Samantha Young

4.5 STARS

Release Date: May 11, 2021

SYNOPSIS: Settled in the tranquil remoteness of the Scottish Highlands, Ardnoch Estate caters to the rich and famous. It is as unattainable and as mysterious as its owner —ex-Hollywood leading man Lachlan Adair—and it’s poised on the edge of a dark scandal. After narrowly escaping death, police officer Robyn Penhaligon leaves behind her life in Boston in search of some answers. Starting with Mac Galbraith, the Scottish father who abandoned her to pursue his career in private security. To re-connect with Mac, Robyn will finally meet a man she’s long resented. Lachlan Adair. Hostility instantly brews between Robyn and Lachlan. She thinks the head of the Adair family is high-handed and self-important. And finding closure with Mac is proving more difficult than she ever imagined. Robyn would sooner leave Ardnoch, but when she discovers Mac is embroiled in a threat against the Adairs and the exclusive members of the estate, she finds she’s not yet ready to give up on her father. Determined to ensure Mac’s safety, Robyn investigates the disturbing crimes at Ardnoch, forcing her and Lachlan to spend time together. Soon it becomes clear a searing attraction exists beneath their animosity, and temptation leads them down a perilous path. While they discover they are connected by something far more addictive than passion, Lachlan cannot let go of his grip on a painful past: a past that will destroy his future … if the insidious presence of an enemy lurking in the shadows of Ardnoch doesn’t do the job first. 


Here With Me is Book 1 in the new Adair Family Series!


REVIEW: I loved the underlying plot of the story. I didn’t know exactly what was going to ensue, which doesn’t happen often. The romantic suspense part definitely kept me guessing! I do like how well Samantha Young writes these emotionally charged characters and scenes. There is so much depth to all of these characters. It was such a weird mix of people, but in a really good way. The fact that the characters are all fairly close in age, even though that includes a dad and a daughter, also played into the fact that the dynamics were not typical and added a lot to the story. The connections and friendships were just so interesting. The pace did seem a little slow to me, but I just think this book was a little on the longer side and I might not have been in the mood for that. There was more than one big thing that happened, so I kind of thought I was at the end of the book a few different times. Luckily, I did really enjoy what happened and I am sincerely looking forward to finding out what happens to the rest of the characters in the next books! Especially Robyn’s Dad!!

Kiss of Vengeance by S. Young

3.5 STARS

Release Date: March 3, 2020

SYNOPSIS: Fionn Mór was once a high king of Ireland; a fierce warrior who led his tribes against the invading fae. It was a war he couldn’t win and to save his family he turned consort for the Fae Queen. Fionn escaped as the thing he once despised, and the people he loved betrayed him for it. Now, centuries later, it’s time to reopen the gates to Faerie to take his revenge against the Faerie Queen.

At sixteen Rose Kelly discovered family secrets that changed her forever. Years after, she’s still lost, traveling across Europe in search of that elusive missing ‘something’. When she’s attacked by a vampire, not only is she wrenched into a supernatural underworld she never knew existed, a knock on the head releases a spell on her mind and unlocks powers beyond her wildest imaginings. And with them more questions. Questions Fionn Mór claims to have answers to.

Following the powerful and enigmatic Fionn to Ireland, Rose quickly realizes she’s a pawn in his plan for vengeance. What begins as a passionate battle of wills leads to an inexplicable but undeniable connection. One that will force them to face an impossible choice between the deepest love… and the darkest revenge.

REVIEW

I sincerely loved the first book in this series, War of Hearts! And now we have the second book in the True Immortality Series. If you love enemies-to-lovers and paranormal romance, this one is for you. It can even be read as a standalone! The overall story is very interesting and I’m excited to get to the next books. The premise of this series plays into why both books have similar plot lines, which also made this book not as enthralling as the first. It kind of felt the like reading the same book over again. Also, Fionn is super stubborn and intent on his revenge, which got a little old for me. All that being said, I still wanted to know what happened, and I’m still really looking forward to the next book! Especially since the first book was so damn good.

War of Hearts by S. Young

5 STARS!!

Release Date: October 1, 2019

SYNOPSIS

Thea Quinn has no idea what she is. All she knows is that her abilities have been a plague upon her life since she was a child. After years of suffering at the hands of a megalomaniac, Thea escaped and has been on the run ever since.

The leadership and protection of his pack are of the utmost importance to Conall MacLennan, Alpha and Chief of Clan MacLennan, the last werewolf pack in Scotland. Which is why watching his sister slowly die of a lycanthropic disease is emotional torture. When Conall is approached by a businessman who offers a cure for his sister in exchange for the use of Conall’s rare tracking ability, Conall forges an unbreakable contract with him. He has to find and retrieve the key to the cure: dangerous murderer, Thea Quinn.

Thea’s attempts to evade the ruthless werewolf are not only thwarted by the Alpha, but by outside dangers. With no choice but to rely on one another for survival, truths are revealed, intensifying a passionate connection they both fight to resist. At war with themselves and each other, Conall and Thea’s journey to Scotland forces them to face a heartrending choice between love and betrayal.

REVIEW

YES! I loved this book!!

I’ve read Samantha Young’s contemporary series, On Dublin Street, and absolutely loved it. So when I heard she had branched out into Paranormal Romance as S. Young, I knew I needed to check it out. This book did not disappoint! Thea Quinn is damaged and strong and everything one could want in a female character. She’s just an amazing lead female character and I fell absolutely in love with her. Then we have Conall, who is a yummy lead male. He goes in pursuit of Thea with the intention of saving his sister, but learns so much more along the journey with her. I love that his strength and Thea’s strength really compliment each other when they are faced with new enemies. This is an amazing enemies to lovers story, and I would DEFINITELY recommend it. I did feel it was a little too long, but I loved the story and can’t wait for the next book in the series!

Fight or Flight by Samantha Young

5 Stars!!

36579299.jpg

First off, I just need to say that I love Samantha Young books. On Dublin Street and Down London Row were amazing!

Review: The beginning of this book kind of annoyed me, because the banter was a little over the top. I almost DNF’ed it, but I didn’t because I know Samantha Young delivers. I am SO HAPPY I kept reading. As I got to know the characters’ back stories, I fell in love with both Ava and Caleb. Samantha Young does a good job at developing flawed characters in a way that the reader is just so invested in them. My heart ached at times for what a few of the characters went through during the story and during their past. Just so many different emotions in the best of ways.

This book has heart, sex appeal, and so much love. I’m really hoping we’re going to get Harper’s story next, possibly with Jamie? Yes, Samantha Young I’m talking to you! Haha.

Thanks to Penguin First to Read for the ARC!

Synopsis: The universe is conspiring against Ava Breevort. As if flying back to Phoenix to bury a childhood friend wasn’t hell enough, a cloud of volcanic ash traveling from overseas delayed her flight back home to Boston. Her last ditch attempt to salvage the trip was thwarted by an arrogant Scotsman, Caleb Scott, who steals a first class seat out from under her. Then over the course of their journey home, their antagonism somehow lands them in bed for the steamiest layover Ava’s ever had. And that’s all it was–until Caleb shows up on her doorstep.

When pure chance pulls Ava back into Caleb’s orbit, he proposes they enjoy their physical connection while he’s stranded in Boston. Ava agrees, knowing her heart’s in no danger since a) she barely likes Caleb and b) his existence in her life is temporary. Not long thereafter Ava realizes she’s made a terrible error because as it turns out Caleb Scott isn’t quite so unlikeable after all. When his stay in Boston becomes permanent, Ava must decide whether to fight her feelings for him or give into them. But even if she does decide to risk her heart on Caleb, there is no guarantee her stubborn Scot will want to risk his heart on her….
