Rescued by Love #review #giveaway #book

I love Melissa Foster's books and her Love in Bloom series. Each book is a read alone book or read in series. You can start anywhere in the series and still know what is going on. Her books are written so well that you feel like you're in the book. You can see and feel what's going on. This time I read Rescued by Love and was captured immediately. I couldn't put it down.

Jake and Addy was a fun couple to read about. Melissa Foster is a amazing writer and I have fallen in love with her series. Every story is it's own story but the next one in the series has to do with other characters in the last story. I love that!

Jake is a sweet and cocky man who is used to getting what he wants without much of a fight until Addy. He is determined to have her and can't get her off his mind. He is a hot search and rescue guy who loves adventure and control. He is so hot! He would be my ideal dream man I would design if I could design my man. He is hot, arrogant, outdoorsy, fun, dirty minded, loving, strong, caring, a wee bit dangerous, and great at fulfilling all my wants and desires.

Addy is a feisty woman who does everything on her own and doesn't let anyone tell her want she can or can't do. She has no time for relationships and love. Jake irritates her but he is so hot and intriguing to her but she can't let go of control. She finally throws caution into the wind and agrees to a one night stand that happens to be her forever after. Addy reminds me a lot of myself. She wasn't store b e known as strong, can do it herself, doesn't need anyone to do anything for her, and very determined but sometimes forgets it's okay to have help and want someone to share everything with.

Such a fun and hot book. I couldn't put it down. It has a amazing happy ever after ending which makes me happy. Definitely recommend this book!

More about the book and the series:
NEW RELEASE….
The Ryders are a series of stand-alone romances that may also be enjoyed as part of the larger Love in Bloom series. These hot contemporary romance novels feature alpha male heroes and sexy, empowered women. They're flawed, funny, passionate, and relatable to readers who enjoy passionate contemporary romance and women's fiction.

In RESCUED BY LOVE...
As the daughter of a world-renowned fashion designer, Addison Dahl enjoyed a privileged life attending the most sought after parties, traveling around the world, and having anything she wanted. Until she broke free and went against her father's wishes, needing to prove to herself--and to him--that she could make it on her own. Now she's ready to take her adventures in a new direction and sets her sights on roughing it in the wilderness.

Jake Ryder followed in his father's footsteps as a top search and rescue professional. He spends his days saving those in need and his nights in the arms of willing women who offer nothing more than a few hours of sexual enjoyment. Just the way he likes it.

When Jake's sister-in-law calls, concerned because she's been unable to reach her best friend, it's up to Jake to find her and bring her home. But Addison isn't lost, and she sure as hell isn't going to be told what to do by an ornery mountain man with whom she'd spent one torrid weekend after her best friend's wedding. Jake has never left anyone behind--will Addison be his first failed rescue?

Gabriella sets out to dissuade Duke from purchasing Elpitha, but Duke has other ideas. He wants Gabriella and the island.

The six-two, tattooed hunk of burning desire is known for his dedication to his craft--but when he ditches their first meeting, she begins to wonder if he's just another rocker with a great PR team.

Sex, booze, women, and music pretty much sum up Boone Stryker's private world. He's coasted through life playing by his own rules with plenty of people willing to cover his tracks, and he's not likely to change--until he meets a woman who refuses to give him the time of day, much less anything more.

Sparks fly from the first moment Trish and Boone meet--Tensions run hot and desire runs hotter when they're trapped together on a remote location with no place to hide. Will sparks ignite, or will a hurricane douse the flames?

Bad Billionaires after Dark: Dylan #bookreview #giveaway

Melissa does it again! I can't get enough of her books. Bad boys after dark series so far have been amazing. This time I read about Dylan Bad and his feisty woman.

Dylan and Tiffany aka Summers are perfect. Dylan is the dream come true man. He is hot, thoughtful, listens, and willing to do anything for the woman he wants. They say he is a softy but I think he is anything but soft. He is determined and caring. He has been through plenty of pain and loss but he doesn't give up on life.

Tiffany has become hard and guarded because she has been hurt severely. She is a workaholic and can be one of the guys. She doesn't give herself time for a life, fun, and definitely not love! She needed someone to break her walls down so she can have what she really wants. Dylan is definitely the man for the job.

Their story is awesome and I couldn't put it down. It drew me in and left me wanting more. I loved their happy ever after ending! I can't wait to read the next book in the series. This is a must read book if you love sexy and dreamy romance books. So get it today!

Bad Billionaires After Dark are a series of sexy stand-alone romances.

"Mick" is a USA Today bestseller. 

Indulge your inner vixen with these sexy billionaires!

Meet the Bad Boys... Four fiercely loyal, sinfully sexy, uber alpha brothers, about to fall head over heels for their leading ladies.

Everything's naughtier after dark... 
Amanda Jenner is done being a boring-man magnet and has finally taken control of her love life. As any smart paralegal would, she's researched the hell out of how to seduce a man. She's waxed, primped, and ready to put her newfound skills into action--and a masquerade bar crawl is the perfect venue for her solo coming-out party.

Entertainment attorney Mick Bad lives by two hard and fast rules. He never mixes business with pleasure, and he doesn't do relationships, which makes the anonymity of a masquerade bar crawl the perfect place for a onetime hookup.

Amanda thinks she's hit the jackpot when she bags a tall, dark, and sinfully delicious masked man--until she discovers the man she's made out with is her off-limits boss. Mick's already crossed a line he can never uncross, and one taste of sweet and sexy Amanda has only whet his appetite. When Mick offers to give Amanda a lesson in seduction--no strings, no regrets, and for goodness' sake, come Monday, no quitting--the tables turn, and Mick's totally unprepared for the lessons this sweet temptress provides.

The Bad Boys are a series of stand-alone romances that may also be enjoyed as part of the larger Love in Bloom series.

Bad Boys for Hire: Nick #bookreview #giveaway

So what's better than a hot sexy romance story? Well a hot sexy Christmas romance story is definitely better. Rachelle Ayala is amazing at writing these sexy stories. I've read a few of her books and loved them! So I couldn't wait to read Bad Boys for hire: Nick.

Nick and Carol are so hot and adorable together. Their chemistry is undeniable. No matter how much the frustrate and piss each other off they can't stay away from each other. They are drawn together and that's what true love is!

Nick is a person I feel most like. He wants to please and help everyone even if it means giving himself up in the process. He did somethings he's not proud of but he did what he thought he needed to do. He is so sweet and understanding with Carol. He shows her that she can do anything she wants and to stop feeling sorry for herself. He truly is a perfect Saint Nick.

Carol was a active can do anything physically type person before her accident and now she feels angry and useless but what's people to see her as that strong person still. Losing her mobility of her legs ruined her life , so she thought, until Nick showed her love and life the way it's meant to be.

I just loved this story! There was a few times I wanted to just slap Carol for pushing people away but in the end I knew she had to fight and learn the hard way. The epilogue was perfect and brought tears to my eyes. I would love to hear more about them in the future but it was such a happy ending for all! I definitely give this book a must read!

Nick is drawn to Carol like a magnet to iron, and he sets out to prove that bad boys who hire themselves out can be good boys, too—especially in bed. Carol discovers she’s not dead to passion, but when Nick’s dirty laundry is aired, she regrets choosing the naughty over the nice. Will the spirit of Christmas teach her that sometimes, a huge lump of coal can turn into the brightest diamond of love?

Seaside Whispers #bookreview #giveway

I have read a few of Melissa Foster's Love in Bloom series books so far and they have all been amazing. Honestly I am ready to read every single one and there is a lot of them. What I like about this series is that they are stand alone books but certain character in the books get their own stories. We grow with thee character and I love that. This time I read Seaside Whispers and Wow what a story! Who doesn't love a hot, protective, thoughtful, and loving man like Matt? I mean this man is every woman's dream come true, especially a single mother. I have been in Mira's shoes being a single mom doing everything for my kids and not letting me think about falling in love. So I understand Mira and why she is so scared to let herself fall for Matt. She is a smart and self sufficient woman and she is a good mother.

Matt is the smart and strong man who is a protector of anyone he feels needs saving. Matt doesn't want to save Mira but he wants to be there with her and make her his. He is amazing with Mira's son Hagen and falls in love with him as well. 

I mean this book is amazing! I couldn't put it down. The love scene are hot and sexy. The story line is believable and enticing. The best part is there is a happy ever after ending so no cliffhanger which is awesome. I loved it and if you love romance then you will love Seaside whispers.

About the Book:

SEASIDE SUMMERS
Voted Beck Valley Books Reviewers Favorite Mini Series from the Love in Bloom Series in 2014
Featuring a group of fun, sexy, and emotional friends who gather each summer at their Cape Cod cottages. They're funny, flawed, and will have you begging to enter their circle of friends. 

SEASIDE WHISPERS
Having a mad crush on her boss's son, Matt Lacroux--an intriguing mix of proper gentleman and flirtatious bad boy--is probably not the smartest idea for single mother Mira Savage. Especially when the company, and her job, is already on shaky ground. But as a Princeton professor, Matt's life is hours away from Mira's home on Cape Cod, keeping him safely in the fantasy-only zone. And as a single mother to six-year-old Hagen, with a floundering company to save, fantasies are all she has time for.

With hopes of becoming dean off the table, and too many months of longing for a woman who lived too far away to pursue, Matt's publishing contract couldn't have come at a better time. He heads home to Cape Cod on a brief sabbatical, intent on starting his book, and finally getting his arms around sweet, seductive Mira. 

A surprise encounter leads to white-hot passions and midnight confessions. The more time Matt and Mira spend together, the deeper their relationship grows, and the love and attention Matt showers on Hagen is more than she has ever dreamed of. But Matt's sabbatical is only temporary, and Mira's not saving his father's company so she can leave it behind. Will their whispers of love be enough for one of them to change their life forever?

SEASIDE WHISPERS is part of the SEASIDE SUMMERS series, and part of the "Love in Bloom" family. Each book may be read as a stand-alone novel, or as part of the series.

I had a lot of fun with my oldest checking out Thanksgiving point's newest attraction Luminaria! There were so many beautiful lights, great music, and festive smells! Candy cane lane smelled like peppermint, forest smelled like pine, and s'mores village smelled like gingerbread. The lights danced to music. There were real reindeer. There was a awesome area with fire pits to make s'mores and warm up as well as play games. Millions of colorful lights to see and we loved all the different sections and themes. There was so much to see and do that it took us over an hour to walk through it all. Check it out if you are in Utah https://www.thanksgivingpoint.org/events/luminaria/
