FALLING FOR HER ENEMY
Still Harbor #2
Releasing Nov 9th, 2015
She’s falling for the one man who could destroy everything…
Alex McAllister always dreamed of a life filled with the laughter and love of a family, but being abandoned at a young age left her wary of letting anyone in. Now that she’s settled in Still Harbor, Alex struggles between keeping her distance and the magnetic pull of the handsome stranger who claims he’s the biological father of her adopted daughter.
Hayden Brooks never wanted to be a father. Long hours spent building his family’s real estate empire suits him just fine. But when he discovers an ex put the baby he unknowingly fathered up for adoption, his world crumbles. He tracks the child to Still Harbor with the intention of bringing her home—and comes face to face with his daughter’s stunning adoptive mother.
The paternity test is in. And Hayden’s about to make the most shocking decision of his life, just in time for Christmas…
A few months ago I have read "Falling for the PI," the first book in this series, I liked it so much that I could not wait to read this second episode. Three orphaned girls have grown together as sisters. Now they live in the same house and each of them has adopted a beautiful little girl. Each book in this series has as protagonist one of these sisters.
Hayden Brooks is rich, powerful and very famous. He receives a strange visit of an supposed former lover: they had a night of passion and she became pregnant. She didn't even know his name, she has managed to track him down after seeing his picture in a newspaper. She gave her daughter up for adoption, doesn't know what happened to her, the only thing she is interested in is blackmail Hayden. He wants to find his child, if she is really her daughter, wants to raise her and love her. His daughter is Cassie and has been adopted by Alex McAllister: she loves her a lot and has managed to make her grow peaceful and happy. When she meets Hayden is terrified at the thought of losing her but she wants only the best for her. What will be best for Cassie?
It 's a short story but well developed, touching, sweet. The characters are very believable and engaging. Alex is a person I would like to know: is loving, generous, is wonderful her relationship with her daughter. She knows what it's like not to have a family and she does not want that Cassie feel the same sensation. Cassie is an adorable little girl, Hayden is very charming but sometimes is too arrogant.
Although it is the second book in the series you can be easily read as a stand alone. I hope to read soon the third book.
I have no hesitation in recommending it highly.
KISSING HER CRUSH
Sugar City #2
Releasing Nov 9th, 2015
He’s sweet trouble...
Natalie Holden wants three things: To be the best chocolate chemist in Hershey, Pennsylvania, to prove her chocolate recipe can help teenage depression, and to get over gorgeous Luke Elliott, the guy she’s had a crush on since birth. Unfortunately, he’s the microbiologist set to debunk her chocolate study. And, of course, he looks more delicious than ever!
Luke Elliott is still bitter over his divorce. Work is his passion now, and landing a huge promotion is just what he needs. What he doesn’t need is a crackpot trying to prove that chocolate cures depression. The last thing he expects is for the crackpot to be Natalie Holden—his “what if” girl from high school—or that she’d still tempt the hell out of him.
They may not see eye-to-eye on her project, but they can’t deny the explosive chemistry that keeps pulling them together. Even when it risks their jobs and the very different futures they both want…
The protagonist of this story is chocolate: it is present everywhere, is described so beautifully that it is better to read it without have some chocolate bars at home, may disappear in a second ....
Natalie Holden wants to prove that chocolate can help fight teenage depression. This issue is very close to her heart because her brother has suffered a lot. She doesn't know, however, that to judge whether her research is really good to get a loan, is the guy that she is always in love, Luke Elliott. He considers her his "what if" girl but she doesn't know it. He recently divorced and wants to devote himself to his work. But the attraction they feel for each other is really strong, hard to resist. They will have to choose between their career or give them a second chance at love.
It 's a sweet and romantic story, light and easy to read. The small skirmishes between the two protagonists are great funny. All the characters are warm and lovable, especially the family of Luke. I also really like the set of this novel, Hershey, Pennsylvania.
I recommend it to those who love sweet and clean stories.
