Review:Rebel Without a Claus ( (Movie Club Mysteries #5) by Zara Keane


Makeup. Mannequins. Murder.

When ex-cop-turned-P.I. Maggie Doyle scores a lucrative undercover job at the makeup counter at a fashionable Galway department store, she expects discounted lipstick and an easy paycheck.

After an altercation with a customer leads to a dead body in Maggie's bathtub, she and her assistant realize there's more to the department store case than missing cash. Can they catch the killer before the holidays? Or will the festive season end in an explosion of tinsel and turmoil?




What I thought about Rebel Without A Claus 

Maggie Doyle is at it again.  Working on a case for her Private Investigations business, Magie goes undercover to find who's been stealing from a department store in Galway and ends up with a dead body in her bathtub.  Just a normal day for Maggie!

What comes next is a complicated series of interconnected crimes that don't really seem to be related to each other at first.  But Maggie and her sidekick Lenny are up for the challenge to find out just what is going on and how it all follows them back to Whisper Island.

Complicating the crime investigation, at least at first is the unannounced arrival of Maggie's sister.  Maggie isn't too thrilled about it, but she's a trooper and handles the inconvenience.  I really did like this subplot with Maggie's sister and how their relationship changes over the course of the book.  It was really sweet.

Things are also heating up for Maggie with Liam Reynolds, a local law enforcement agent.  While this series is a mystery series, there is a touch of romance in each book between Maggie and Liam that always leaves me smiling.
In Rebel Without A Claus, Liam is struggling with a family situation that has him on edge when it comes to his daughter. I'm looking forward to more on this bit of mystery!

Zara Keane does a great job in this series of crafting an engaging mystery and crime for Maggie to solve.  I've loved the progression in this series from Maggie coming back to Ireland after her failed marriage to building a business for herself.  She's a strong character and I just love her.  There's always a nice touch of humor too that always has me finding a place for Zara Keane's stories in my busy reading schedule.

If you like a tight mystery with a bit of humor, quirky local characters and a touch of romance, this might be the series for you.

An ARC was provided for review.

SAY YOU’LL REMEMBER ME Synopsis:
"Doesn't matter who did it. Not anymore. I did the time. It's over."

When Drix was convicted of a crime--one he didn't commit--he thought his life was over. But opportunity came with the Second Chance Program, the governor's newest pet project to get delinquents off the streets, rehabilitated and back into society.

Elle knows she lives a life of privilege. As the governor's daughter, she can open doors with her name alone. But the expectations and pressure to be someone she isn't may be too much to handle. She wants to follow her own path, whatever that means.

When Drix and Elle meet, their connection is immediate, but so are their problems. Drix is not the type of boy Elle's parents have in mind for her, and Elle is not the kind of girl who can understand Drix's messy life.


But sometimes love can breach all barriers.


Fighting against a society that can't imagine them together, Drix and Elle must push themselves--Drix to confront the truth of the robbery, and Elle to assert her independence--and each other to finally get what they deserve.

About SHELTER:


His life is chaos and confusion. It’s a storm of uncertainty and raging emotion. 


Sutton Warner is a mess. Everything in his life feels like it’s unraveling.


He’s let a lot of people down lately, including his daughter. Sutton always promised his little girl he would never disappoint her and that he would always be there when she needed him. Until he wasn’t.
The truth is, he’s used to disappointing the women in his life. First was his mother who couldn’t find a reason to stick around when he was growing up. Then there’s his ex. The woman who takes unbridled delight in making his life incredibly complicated. Luckily, his daughter is still young enough to believe her old man is some kind of hero. But, he knows the day is coming when she realizes the truth, that he’s just a man with some serious flaws and a list of ever-growing weaknesses.


Finally, there’s the woman he’s desperately trying to forget with every shot tossed back and each pill popped.


He more than disappointed Emrys…he almost got her killed.


Her love is steady and sure. It’s a shelter shaped by conviction and silent assurance.


Emrys Santos is lost. Everything in her life feels pointless and futile.


She’s been busy running away from her feelings and all the people who love her the most—including her best friend, the one person who knows exactly what she’s been through. They promised to always stick together and to lean on one another. It was a promise Em had to break so she could lick her wounds and figure out her next move. For once, there is no easy way out of the tangled web of emotions she’s caught up in, and right now, she recognizes that all roads lead back to Wyoming…and back to Sutton.


The man she nearly got killed.


Shelter is a standalone novel, the second book in the Getaway series, which features the hardheaded and brokenhearted Warner brothers and the women who dare to love them. These boys are very good at putting the wild in wilderness.

        EXCERPT:

I’d been fooled once by the promise of quiet nights and serene days in the sunshine. I believed the brochure when it said I could leave my worries at home and escape to a simpler, quieter kind of life. I let myself be lured in by the picturesque landscape and stunning mountains. I foolishly fell prey to the temptation of leaving my current set of troubles behind in San Francisco while I hid away in the middle-of-nowhere Wyoming.

I now knew firsthand the glossy brochure that brought me to Wyoming the first time was nothing more than a bunch of pretty, packaged lies. I knew the bar brawl erupting in front of me was hardly the worst thing that could happen here. In fact, the level of bloodshed and violence was child’s play compared to what I’d witnessed the last time I’d stepped foot in this small, quaint town. Well, I hadn’t really been in Sheridan last time I was here. I’d spent most of my time in the backwoods that surrounded the Warner brothers’ ranch, which was still a good forty-five minutes outside of this tiny town. The ranch was where I was currently trying to get to so I could see my best friend.

When I left Wyoming, I told myself I would never come back.

Ever.


I told myself there was nothing here for me but bad memories and heartache. I was a pro at lying to myself, at telling myself exactly what I needed to hear to justify my actions. I could convince myself of anything, like it was okay that my last boyfriend stole my grandmother’s silver when I kicked him out because he needed it more than I did. I had no problem believing that pulling Leo out of the city was the only way to heal her broken heart even though she didn’t want to go. It was easier to distract her than it was to watch her wallow. I persuaded myself into believing what I needed to heal was space and solitude. I held onto that until time passed and I was still a mess. I was sick of my own company and of hiding from everything I was feeling. I was the one who always went out of my way to fix everyone else around me, it wasn’t exactly a shock to learn I didn’t have the skills to repair myself. I spent my days helping others focus on their goals, on doing better and achieving more, so I didn’t have to think about the lack of any ambition of my own. I turned thirty at the end of the year and I was still trying to figure out what and who I wanted to be when I grew up. I’d been aimless for a long time; the only direction in my life come from the fact I knew all the way down to my bones that I had to go back to Wyoming and face off with Sutton Warner.

What I thought about Shelter

Emrys Santos is still dealing with the aftermath of the vacation-gone-wrong. Her scars are visible as well as hidden, and she finds herself heading back to Wyoming to resolve unfinished business with the man who saved her -- Sutton Warner.

Sutton isn't doing very well himself.  He's lost his confidence and more after the almost-fatal experience.  Booze and pain killers are the only things keeping his demons at bay and not all that well. It's a good thing that Emrys shows up to bring him back from the edge.

These two are scorching hot together. There's an attraction between them that they didn't get to explore when they first met and they make up for lost time!     The heat level is high, and there's a barn scene that is one of the hottest of the year for me, and that's after reading over 150 romance titles.

Everything takes a whole new turn with a murder that has the town pointing the finger at Sutton, followed by a kidnapping that has the potential for super serious consequences for all the Warner family.  I adore the suspense elements in this series, and loved everything about this part of the story, even though the identity of the the responsible party was easy to guess.  

This book had a bit of a different feel to it than the first book in the series, mostly because both main character's point of view is represented.  Emrys and Sutton are complicated characters, and it is when they come together that they find they can open up and let go.  I really liked the emotional impact of their union and was glad that I got to see what was going on with both characters.

I really love this series.  Whenever a new book from an author has me craving more and running back for re-reads of all my favorite titles from them, I know it's a winner.  This series pulled me out of a bit of a romance reading slump and I think that's a big deal. 

If you like romantic suspense, I think you will like this series. I also recommend starting with Retreat, but Shelter can be read as a standalone. You'll enjoy it more with the background provided by the first book in the series.

And the next book! Gah! There's a nice setup at the end of Shelter for the next book in the series.  Cannot wait!

Review:5 Stars for Retreat (The Getaway Series #1) by Jay Crownover


Every once in a while, you need to get away from it all.

I was a woman on the edge, shaken and shattered after a breakup that felt like it tore my entire world apart.

My best friend, sick of watching me drown in misery and melancholy, harassed me until I agreed to go with her on a week-long wilderness retreat.

She promised days spent bonding and getting in touch with our inner bad-asses.
It was supposed to be all about the two of us roughing it and making do with the bare minimum. She assured me we were going to be pushed to our limits in ways that were unimaginable. Neither one of us could have ever guessed just how right she was.

Nowhere in the glossy brochure did it say anything about the fact I was going to have to battle the insufferable but deliciously rugged and sexy trail guide instead of the elements. The brochure also forgot to mention the part that warned when you left civilization behind, there was no place to pack your inhibitions and fears.

I was told that I would be facing a week where the only thing I should expect was the unexpected. However, no one mentioned that I was going to have to fight for my life…and my heart as soon as I ventured into the unknown.

I was a pro at hiding from my feelings but when it came time to face a real threat, one that could change everything, I learned I was more of a no surrender, no retreat kind of girl.

Retreat is a standalone novel, the first in the Getaway series which centers on the hardheaded and brokenhearted Warner brothers and the women that dare to love them.

These boys are very good at putting the wild in wilderness.

What I thought about Retreat

Wow!  How did I miss this book? I'm a huge fan of Jay Crownover's stories, but somehow I missed this book when it was released a year ago.  I'm so glad to have found it, because this book just pulled me out of a reading slump!

Leo (Leora) is getting over a very difficult breakup when her friend Emrys decides they need to go on a wilderness retreat in Wyoming.  Leo is skeptical, but agreeable and the two best friends hit the road to do some back woods horseback riding.  When they meet the Warner brothers, the owners of the ranch and tour company, Leo's life gets very interesting.

In steps Cyrus Warner, the older of the three brothers.  There's immediate sparks between Cyrus and Leo and not the romantic kind...at first. But the longer they spend on the trail, their spark turns into attraction and makes for some very steamy scenes between them. Oh, and there are other people on the trail with them, a family in trouble and two men who don't seem to quite fit in with everyone else.

Everything seems to be going well until a runaway horse takes Leo into an area that some criminals want to keep private, turning the story into a tense and tight romantic suspense as Cyrus and Leo work against the clock to keep their group and Cyrus's brothers from serious harm.  

I loved this.  I could not put this down.  The story is told from Leo's perspective, and that it interesting because she had a lot to work through. The tension, sexual and otherwise, is tight and very engaging. As a fan of romantic suspense, this story did a nice job of balancing the romance and action.  

I also thought Cyrus was yummy, and I'm looking forward to his brother's stories.  Not everything turns out "fine" and I liked that about Retreat.  There was no magic that made everything better -- the characters had to learn to live with the cards they were dealt and that made for a very satisfying conclusion to the story (nope, not gonna tell).  

The end of the book sets things up quite nicely for Shelter, the next book in the series which is out on December 26, 2017.  I definitely recommend grabbing a copy of Retreat -- it's a very exciting and super steamy romantic suspense that puts Retreat on my favorites of 2017 list.

Still …

She must go.

Their lust-hate relationship escalates into something beautiful and tragic. This sexy, romantic-comedy explores the things we want, the things we need, and the impossible decisions parents and children make to survive.

Wow! Double Cover Reveal: Blasphemy Series by Laura Kaye

   


Decadent… Sensual… Forbidden…

Meet the Masters of Blasphemy…

   

A note from Laura Kaye…

I’m excited to share the amazing cover art for the last two books in my erotic romance Blasphemy series. These are both standalone reads, and they’re going to be scorching hot and so full of emotion! Be sure to add them to your Goodreads and preorder them today! Now, check this out:

   

ABOUT ON HIS KNEES (Releasing February 13, 2018):

Getting on his knees makes him question everything…and want even more…

Another failed relationship has lawyer Jamie Fielding confronting the truth—he’ll never be satisfied with any woman until he admits what he needs…to submit and to be used—hard. When a friend invites him to the exclusive Blasphemy club, Jamie is stunned to find everything he ever wanted—in the fierce, ruthless hands of a man.
 

Psychiatrist Alex McGarry will play with anyone who craves his rough brand of domination, but what he really wants is to settle down. Which makes the submissive male he meets at his club a bad idea—the man might be hot as hell but he’s also new to everything Alex has to offer. Except that doesn’t keep them from coming together again and again, sating every one of their darkest desires.
 

Master Alex sets Jamie’s whole world on fire and makes him question everything—and that’s good. Because Alex won’t tolerate hiding what they have for long and he wants much more than just having Jamie on his knees...

    ABOUT SWITCHING FOR HER (Coming April 24, 2018):


She’s the only one who’s ever driven him to his knees…

Blasphemy founder and hedge fund manager Hale O’Keeffe is spiraling. Nothing in his life makes sense anymore—and nothing gives him pleasure, either. Not his work, not his club, and not domination. Feeling like a fraud, he turns to an old friend for help—and receives an offer he’s surprisingly tempted to take.
 

Real estate investor Alina Lane likes to switch things up—houses, investments, and partners, too. She enjoys commanding and being commanded. But not everyone likes to switch, so she’s stunned when sexy, brooding, crush-from-afar Hale attends one of her private parties and reveals he needs something more, something different. Something she’s always fantasized about but never thought he’d accept.
 

Soon, one scorching night turns into many, and Hale realizes he’s found everything he’s been searching for. But Alina won’t be anyone’s dirty little secret, forcing Hale to decide if he’s brave enough to admit to the other Masters of Blasphemy that he craves serving her as much as dominating her.

But my friends aren’t having it. Get out there again, they say. It will be fun, they say. I’m still taking a hard pass. 


Free designer cocktails
, they say. And that’s a game-changer. 


Too bad my ex shows up with his new arm candy. That’s when I lose my mind. But when my besties dare me to leap on the first single man I see, they don't expect me to actually go through with it.


TOM


All I need right now is some peace and quiet while my home renovation TV show is on hiatus. But when a curvy woman in a red wrap dress charges me like she’s a gymnast about to mount my high bar, all I can do is brace myself and catch her. What follows is the hottest experience of my adult life. 


I want a repeat, but my flying Cinderella disappears immediately afterward. She doesn’t leave a glass slipper, either—just a pair of panties with chocolate bunnies printed on them. 


But I will find her.

What I thought about Man Hands 

When Brynn sees her ex at a party, she decides to take her friends advice and just go for it with a man who is the exact opposite of the type she usually chooses.  So she goes for the guy she thinks is the gardener. And when I say "goes for it", Brynn does it in style by jumping him and dragging him off for more fun in the boathouse. 

What starts out as a one-timer turns into something more when Tom can't get Brynn off his mind.  He wants more, but she's still tender from her divorce.  Things really get sticky when a tape is leaked and to fix things, Brynn and Tom end up in an arrangement that has them fake engaged. 

I did love Brynn's attitude and approach to life. She's not letting her terrible marriage hold her back and even though there are some tears, she doesn't wallow in her despair.She handles things with a whole lot of humor with her sidekicks aka best girlfriends!

 Tom was almost too good to be true at times! He's immediately intrigued and attracted to Brynn, which helps him forget the disaster of a relationship he'd been getting over.  And he's got all the "tools" that is, the perfect body and other assets!  Personally, I get the man hands attraction--give me a guy with beautiful man hands and I'm done for!  Tom fit the role quite nicely, not just from the physical perspective, but he's also quite sensitive, which made me love him too.

The real charm in Man Hands is the light tone in the first half of the book.  Brynn had me laughing quite a few times and Tom is just a nice guy who falls for Brynn's charms.  These two just work together like peas and carrots and their story is really sweet. Man Hands is a perfect light-hearted romance that left me feeling hopeful and happy.

If you are looking for a romance that's light, sweet and will tickle your funny bone, give Man Hands a try.
