eARC Provided by author

The perfect cowboy.

The perfect opportunity.

The perfect 

Luxury resort manager Stella Garcia isn’t sure where the mysterious, sexy rancher came from. All she knows is that Dane Michaels rescued her from disaster—before deliciously seducing her with his dark gaze and sizzling touch. She has no idea that Dane is hell-bent on his own agenda. One that starts with ple Dane is dealing with a lot of demons and he's got one track until he meets Stella Garcia.

 Stella has been trying to please her father forever. Being with Dane gives her the courage to take a stand that doesn't end well for her and only gets worse when Dane confesses his secrets.  A lot of secrets in this story. I like Dane and Stella. The author makes you care about the characters. While Dane and Stella's story is going on you get glimpse's of Dane's brother Ethan. Both brothers are trying to get their mother's resorts back in their names. These stories take place at the same time. The duet to this book comes out soon so you're not left waiting for a wrap up.

He hates the corporate world.
She's all business.
Now they have to work together
on the one job that could
make or break them both...

Connor became a flight medic
for one reason, and
one reason only.
To help people.
If he can keep his head down
and his past in the past while he's at it?
Even better.

Until Harlow appears to upend his world
with an offer he can't refuse.

She's calculating. Composed.

And she'll stop at nothing to make
her father's business successful.

Even if that means teaming up with Connor
to turn around a failing clinic.

He shouldn't like her.
He definitely shouldn't want her. 
But the more they work together
the less he's able to resist.

But Connor's secrets run deep.
Will Harlow's ambition ruin him,
or will she be his salvation? 

Connor Bradshaw has been hiding a secret for a long while now. Only a few people know about his past. He's been trying to pay a debt that's never really been his to pay. Now he's got this great opportunity to give more and help more people. It puts him in a precarious position of possibly exposing his secret and losing this opportunity. He's been a combat medic in the military but now working as a nurse at Remington Medical. He's quick and a efficient at his job and is part of a family there with his fellow colleagues. Harlow Davenport is the business women sent to help him fix the huge failure that is the medical clinic at Remington. She's tough as nails but the clinic means a lot to her as it bears her mothers name. This means she's got to find a way to work with Connor. Not a easy thing for the all work no play Harlow. I was excited to see how Connor's story would play out since book one. He's one of those stand out characters that you instantly like. Harlow on the other hand is likable but frustrating woman because she's wound so tight. Work is all she does. She's got her own issues with trying to please her father and not properly getting to grieve her mothers passing. In the midst of trying to save the clinic they both learn to trust each other but when everything seems to be lost forever will they crumble? In the end i loved them as a couple. The people at Remington Medical took Harlow in and made her one of their own. The characters of this series have all found a place in my heart for the comradery they show each other. Can't wait to see what happens next!

He's a Special Forces veteran making his pro hockey debut. She's a dogged sports reporter determined to get a scoop. She's also his best friend's widow...

Fans can’t get enough of Levi Hunt, the Special Forces veteran who put his NHL career on hold to serve his country and fight the bad guys. So when his new Chicago Rebels bosses tell him to cooperate with the press on a profile, he’s ready to do his duty. Until he finds out who he has to work with: flame-haired, freckle-splashed, impossibly perky Jordan Cooke.

The woman he should not have kissed the night she buried her husband, Levi’s best friend in the service.

Hockey-stick-up-his-butt-serious Levi Hunt might despise Jordan for reasons she can’t fathom—okay, it’s to do with kissing—but her future in the cutthroat world of sports reporting hangs on delivering the goods on the league’s hottest, grumpiest rookie. So what if he’s not interested in having his life plated up for public consumption. Too bad. Jordan will have to play dirty to get her scoop and even dirtier to get her man. Only in winning the story, she might just lose her heart..

Levi Hunt is the newest addition to the Chicago Rebels. A special Forces veteran He's a little old to be a rookie but he here now and hopefully ready. Jordan Cooke is trying to make a name for herself as a sports reporter. Her big chance comes when she's tasked to write a profile on the new rookie. Problems is Levi and Jordan know each other. Jordan's husband was Levi's best friend in the military and was killed in action. I liked Levi and Jordan well enough but this story was to all over the place for me. To much going on. It took me a while to read this. What saved it for me was all the secondary characters. I couldn't believe Jordan would ever leave her laptop where the competition could see it. Levi aggravated me with the idea he wasn't good enough for her. It's just old. It was a ok story for me but nothing i would reread over and over.

eARC Book review: Million Dollar Marriage (Million Dollar #2) by Katy Evans

43266663. sy475

Available July 23rd 2019
eARC Provided by publisher through Netgalley

If someone had bet Nell a million dollars that she would be saying “I do” to a complete stranger on national television, she’d have called them crazy, but with her crushing student loan payments sending her deep into the red, she’s out of options. This should be nothing more than a business transaction—until she sets eyes on her groom, and everything changes.
The game is on the instant Luke spots Penelope “Nell” Carpenter. He’s out for the money, yes, but getting a little dirty with Nell doesn’t sound too bad either. Everyone knows he’s not the marrying kind, so it’s a good thing it’s just for show. God knows he’s the worst guy his pretty wife should pick for real.
They have nothing in common, but if they want the grand prize, they’ll have to beat out eight other couples. Proving that total opposites attract should be easy enough…as long as they don’t fall in love in the process.
Nell and Luke both need a hug infusion of cash to pay off some big debts. Both try out for a new reality show not knowing much about it. Nell is pretty sure she won't get picked she's kind of a nerd and a brainiac stick in the mud. Luke on the other hand is kind of the life of the party. Makes friends easily and i open to anything. Complete opposites. They both end up getting in and paired together and then married for the two weeks of the contest. I loved watching these two. Both had some problems in their pasts and very different in nature. It's kind of a rocky start to say the least but these two slowly come together. Luke could easily have been a jerk as Nell was really hard to get along with at first but he gets her to open up and he's patient. He sees things in her she doesn't see in herself. You literally watch her confidence grow. Luke seems like he let's nothing slow him down but Nell is this immensely smart woman and he didn't finish high school. Yet she makes him feel brilliant. Like all good stories there someone working against them. Other competitors and the shows producers needing that high ratings and when their finally ready to let the world know they've fallen in love in all comes crashing down. I admit i laughed alot reading this. It's easy to get lost in these two. I do not watch much reality TV especially shows like this one so I didn't think I'd enjoy this the way i did. A definite fun read.

She needs to kiss him…

before he figures out who she is! 

Reid Singleton just had the best sex ever. When the brown-eyed bombshell turns out to be Drew Fleming—his best friend’s sister all grown-up—Reid can’t decide if he’s furious at her ruse or ready for round two! Drew is determined to tame this stubborn bachelor. But she isn’t the only person from Reid’s past who will change his future…

Reid is the last of his group of friends to hold out on a marriage pact they made together. One by one they fell but he's got a secret that none of them no. One that will hold him to that no marriage pact. Then his best friends sister knocks him on his butt. Drew has had a crush on Reid forever. When she runs into him at a event while she's filling in for her friend for he doesn't recognize her. She decides to let it play out and take her one night with Reid. Thinking that's all she's ever going to have she promises herself she'll confess to him in the morning. Except it turns out not to be just a one night thing. I loved this book. For a shorter book, around 225 pages it packs a wallop.  Somehow the author tells a story that feels a whole lot longer than it actually is. I loved Reid. Poor guy is more beat up on the inside than even he thinks he is. Drew has her own insecurities and Reid good for her but Drew is everything Reid needs.  In the end it left me wanting more. Thank goodness there's another book coming in this series.
