Emergency Response Nicki Edwards



What's the book about:
Running away didn't solve anything ... at least, not the first time.


Intensive care nurse Mackenzie Jones is no stranger to running. As a teenager she fled her family home, leaving tragedy and loss in her wake. Now, after fifteen years alone in Sydney, with the strain of working in a city hospital wearing her thin, she's tempted to run again.


Mackenzie jumps at the chance to work in a mining town in the Western Australian desert – anything to lift her spirits. Though she barely dares to hope, she wonders if she might find the kind of love that can ease her loneliness.


In the outback, Nathan Kennedy is at a loose end. He's been making money in the mines for years, and pressure from his family to return to the east coast, settle down and get married is reaching fever pitch. The problem is, he hasn't met the right woman.


When Mackenzie turns up in town, there's an instant attraction between her and Nathan, maybe even true love. But tragedy's not done with Mackenzie Jones – the past is about to catch up with her in more ways than one.


Can Nathan convince Mackenzie to stop running, or is this just another tragedy in the making?


My thoughts on the book:

Mackenzie knows its time to take a look at her life and make some changes. As she is getting older she has decided that maybe love is not in the cards for her and she wonders if it ever was. She has distance her self from her family long ago, but longs for the family she lost and wonders if its to late to get them back. When she finds herself at a point in her life where she thinks she my finally have an answer to all the questions she's been asking herself lately, life and her past sneaks up on her and she finds the secrets that are hiding there may not be what she wants to find now. Nathan is sick of his family bugging him to settle down. He has not found the one and will not settle down till he does. When he gets news from his sister he wonders if going home and settling down is going to happen a lot sooner then he thought.
What I love about this book instead of the author giving you the impression these characters are flawless with little wrong in there life, she has given you imperfect characters with a imperfect love story for you to fall in love with.It truly feels like you are catching up with friends more then reading a book. You are completely drawn into the book and you find yourself turning the pages, getting drawn in and getting lost in them. This book is a good clean fun romance and for once a fresh of breath air, compared to other books that are out right now. I can't really say there is anything in this book I did not like even up to the very last page is has you drawn in and it seemed when there is no more to give or surprise you Ms. Edwards has managed to throw that out the window with a surprise, or a twist. If you are truly looking for a really fun book with imperfect but real characters this is the book for you. <br>Disclosure: I received this book free of charge from the publisher, but this review consists of my honest opinions, not influenced in any way by the author or publisher

moment of truth sandra d bricker






What's the book about:
Regan Sloane was married once. Eight years, no kids, she got the house. In the years since the divorce, she's managed to keep afloat with the only real skill she has: Writing. She hadn't really noticed how her readership had blossomed until a well-known reviewer noticed her sweet little lifestyle blog. When had it transformed into a single woman's go-to? With the life and loves of her four BFFs to fuel the content and have her back at every turn Regan realizes that something magical happens when women join forces. Girl Power just might be the new super power!

My thoughts on the book:
This book has five main characters and usually I am not a fan of some many because you usually can not keep up with everything thats going on, however in this book that is not the case at all. The author did such an amazing job telling each story and letting the stories flow together so well. The storyline is also so well written you find you self more or less feel like you are watching a movie or a really good tv show. The story is nothing like I have read from this author. The story its self has you drawn in and seems like you are catching up with your best friend and their life not just reading a book, so life like and real. Each of the five characters goes through life and some face some really hard things, and loss, and some face new challenges in life all the while just enjoying there Thursday night book club where they take time each week to share dessert and catch up. I really had a hard time putting this book down. I didn't want it to be over because I was enjoying the book so much. I really hope you find your self enjoying it as well because you really can not go wrong with getting this book and sharing it with you best friend.

The Stage Shelby Rebecca



What's the book about:
Mia, the saint.
Kolton, the sinner.
Kolton Royce is a tatted, bad boy rock star at the top of his game.
Mia Phoenix is an overly responsible nineteen-year-old striving for stardom since losing her parents in a house fire.
When Mia ends up on Kolton’s team for the debut of the new nationwide singing competition, The Stage, she’s not sure if it’s her or her voice that he’s hellbent to control.
After he takes special interest in her welfare, they’ve been warned, any contact between them outside of filming is strictly forbidden.
He has other ideas.
She’s a phoenix rising from the ashes, the only one who understands the pain that lies beneath the persona. Though he’s not sure if he’s too bad for her, he can’t stay away.
All sinners have a past. All saints have a future. But, does being born in fire make the fissures weak in all the wrong places, or stronger than they’ve ever known?

My thoughts on the book:
Mia has lost everything but her little sister and her dads guitar. When she is contacted to be on a new show call The Stage. She is not sure if up and taking this challenge will really be worth it because she doesn't want to up and ruin her sisters life after they have lost so much. She decides maybe this is the best for them and that it will take them to places they could never go other wise. Things are thrown and them and she starts to feel like her life is falling a part and she is wondering if Riley and her will come out on the other side stronger or it they will loose even more. Kolton has the life most people have dreamed of he is famous has beautiful girls but he has secrets. He is set to be a coach on the new up coming show called The Stage he has his ideas of what will happen and no one can stop him. He just never expected what happened and sure as heck never expected someone from the past to seek him and those close to him out. Will him and those close be able to get through everything in one piece.

This book in some parts has you on the edge of your seat and turning the pages just to find out what happens next. Its amazing very suspenseful but and amazing love story. The love the loss and the over all chemistry is coming off the pages. The book ends perfect but the first chapter into the 2nd book ends with a cliff hanger and leaves you wanting so much more. If you are looking for a book that just leaves you up late wanting to know what happens next and draws you in this book is worth the read and worth the buy. Cant wait for book two.

Search for the Truth Kathryn Freeman


What's the book about:
Sometimes the truth hurts … 
When journalist Tess Johnson takes a job at Helix pharmaceuticals, she has a very specific motive. Tess has reason to believe the company are knowingly producing a potentially harmful drug and, if her suspicions are confirmed, she will stop at nothing to make sure the truth comes out.
Jim Knight is the president of research and development at Helix and is a force to be reckoned with. After a disastrous office affair he’s determined that nothing else will distract him from his vision for the company. Failure is simply not an option. 
As Tess and Jim start working together, both have their reasons for wanting to ignore the sexual chemistry that fires between them. But chemistry, like most things in the world of science, isn’t always easy to control.

My thoughts on the book:
Tessa has lost someone really close to her and she is ready to find the killer cause she knows someone is to blame for the death and she is pointing that finger and the company who created the drug to help cancer patients and she will stop at nothing to prove they are in the wrong. Jim has had heart break and is ready to conquer the world of medicine and at no cost will anything or anyone stop him and he doesn't care who he piss off he plans to do things his way and make things right for a change. What he doesn't plan his the one person he never wanted to see to come back in his life like a bad habit and  then Tess drops into his life will he be able to to handle all his plans before it all explodes in his face?

I will first start off saying the base of the story was written well. I expected it to be a bit of a mystery and it really wasn't. I felt like the book was a little long, if I had to divided the book in half, half was really good and the other was just ok. I felt like there really was to many details at one point I thought there was maybe a point to all of the details but nope not really, and sometime it seem to repeat its self. I will say this the not so good is spread out evenly so if you can manage to get through that the book its self was ok. Overall I would give this book a 3.5 stars I didn't hate it but I didn't love it either, maybe better for the perfect reader.

Danny, snapped by photogs, lands as the unlikely cover model on the front of L.A. Magazine. So much for inconspicuous. Will his popularity thwart her efforts to grow her business?

Or worse, can Jessie afford to put her faith—and heart—into another relationship when she’s so obviously handicapped in the good judgment department?

My thoughts on the book:

New starts are never easy; there are lots of bumps in the road that get you to new starts and new chapters, as we quickly learned in book number one. Sometimes after you pick your self off you get knocked down again atleast thats how Jessie is feeling or so it seems. She seems to have everything right where she wants for now and is ready to move towards the future, when her ex husband Jack drops into her world ready to have his say and has not problem who he steps on to get there. 
Danny is really happy to continue this journey with Jessie we feel like they may have something really special going on but she can't seem to get a break and he's just not sure he knows what to do either. He never thought he would feel like this ever again. When Jessie and he run into his past for even just a minute he seems to have a few doubt of his own but he is off to help some good people get his head straight and see what the future holds for Jessie and him.

The plot and the storyline literally grab you and draw you from one page to the next and keep you there from the beginning of the book till the very end. You will find your self laughing and even some times crying. You find your self so drawn into the story you don't want to put the book, you want to no you need to know what happens and you find yourself really on the edge of your seat and then you get to the end and you just want more. If you read On a Ring and a Prayer (the first book) you find yourself catching up with some old friends and making new ones along in the journey.  I have to say hands down I will be telling everyone I know about this book, can’t wait for the rest of the series to come out. This book did not disappoint and you cannot go wrong with buy this book. The only bad thing is now I have to wait till book three comes out. But hey thats not such a bad thing right.

Montana Hero Debra Salonen



What's the book about:

During Flynn Bensen's last wildfire rescue, a woman died despite Flynn's best efforts to save her. He can’t escape his sense of failure or recurring nightmares, but he can escape to Marietta, Montana, to a new job as the head of Crawford County Search and Rescue. When he meets his scorching hot co-worker on his first day, Flynn feels like he might have just jumped from one wild fire to another that threatens to burn out of control despite his determination to keep a safe distance.
Outspoken, direct, and ambitious Kat Robinson isn’t thrilled to have a new boss—after all, if the timing had been different, she’d have been a shoe-in for Flynn’s job. But a single mom of a ten-year-old son knows where her priorities lay—with Brady, the light of her life. No way is she looking for a relationship and co-workers are always off limits. Too bad Flynn’s so darn hot, gorgeous, kind and authentic.
Will Flynn be the hero Kat needs to help her find the courage to fall in love again?


My thoughts on the book:
Kat has been in Montana a year she is "reconnecting" with a place her mom fell in love with before Kat was even boon. Her son is once again struggling and Kat is not sure is this is really the place for him and her to stay. She also has question as is this new boss of hers is fit to work with especially since her loss boss was such a "winner" to work with. She is starting to wonder if she made the right choice not taking the job as the boss. Flynn is a fire hot shot who has been dealing with a loss of a victim he can not seem to get the nightmares to stop. He knows things to need to change and he is ready for the change when he takes the job as a SAR commander in Montana. He is surprised to see that his new team is not so happy for the change and he's is ready to deal with some hard heads, head on. When both Flynn and Kat are forced together to help someone they start see that maybe things are as bad as it seems or they?
I had a blast reading this book, it was such a sweet love story. I love books that seem like the story could be taken from real life and not just a blown out story that seems so unrealistic, this book is just that a story that you feel your just catching up with friends. The chemistry in the book is there but its not what makes the book, the storyline is well written and has you drawn in and you find yourself having a hard time putting the book down. I can not wait for more from this author or more about the Montana Maverick group. You really can not go wrong with buying this book or the others in the series.

Greetings from the Flipside Rene Gutteridge, Cheryl McKay



What's the book about:
Hope Landon has been rewriting other people’s greeting cards since she was six years old. There’s always a funnier caption in there somewhere. She’s ready to chase her creative dreams in New York City with her fiancĂ©―until he leaves Hope at the altar.

That may give her something to write about . . .

Hope disappears for the time that would have been the couple’s month-long honeymoon, and upon returning learns of her own funeral. Everyone concluded Hope must have killed herself after being jilted. Needing a fresh start more than ever, she heads for the Big Apple only to discover it isn’t easy to rent a place when you’ve been declared dead.

Taking shelter at the YMCA, Hope lands a job at an inspirational greeting card company assisting Jake, the guy who shut down his organization’s humor department. She has lost her faith in love; he needs to find something or someone that will make him laugh again.

Fun and faithful, Greetings from the Flipside will keep turning over in your mind.


My thoughts on the book:

Hope is sure of one thing she wants out of her small town of Poughkeepsie. She is getting ready to see that dream come true as she walks down the isle, she is also so happy to see another dream come true of moving to New York and becoming a famous greeting card maker. Only problem is that everything changes on a dime and she's not sure where she will find herself next. Jake loves his job he loves designing flower and greeting cards and he knows one thing for sure he will never love again. He is out on a delivery and he can not wait to see his old friend and show her is design, he however finds himself in a situation he never thought would happen. 
I just loved loved loved this book. I really had it read in one seating and it was amazing. It did not disappoint at all. The storyline has you on a roller coaster of sorts you find your self laughing and the in such a important part you really don't want to miss anything. I have nothing bad to say about this book. It was amazingly well written and keeps you guessing throughout. This book is a real page turner and well worth the read, you can not go wrong with this book at all.

Mercy's Rescue Debra Holt



What's the book about:


Fighting for his life after an ambush, Sheriff Josh Wellman awakes to find himself looking into the eyes of a real-life angel of mercy. Despite his groggy condition, he knows his life has changed the instant their hands touch. 


Devastating heartbreak has left Mercy Smith's faith in tatters, her heart guarded against more loss. Her dedication to the air evac trauma team she leads has insulated her from the realities of the earth below, so now Josh faces the biggest challenge of his life. 



Can he find a way around the walls that fortify her heart and convince this angel to stay on the ground with him? Can Mercy open herself to life again and find a way to restore her faith in God ... as well as love?

My thoughts on the book:

Josh has strong faith and he knows that life has no promise. When Josh is facing life or death after a ambush he finds himself face to face with the most beautiful face and he's not sure if he is dreaming but he knows one thing for sure he needs this face in his life. Mercy is sure about one thing there is a higher power but she has little faith in anything other then her self. She is sick of being hurt and heart broken and she knows that nothing can change that only problem is life keeps throwing her challenges and she is not sure what she believes any more. 
I just loved this book from page one to the very end there was not one slow point in this book. The book may look small but it packs a punch and will have you turning every single page from beginning to end. There is chemistry through out the book and there is an amount of fighting it in between the characters as well. I found my self having a real hard time putting this book down I really wanted to know what was going on. This book is defiantly a book you will want on your book shelf. This is an author I will be adding to my favorite list I can't wait to read more from Ms. Holt

Once Upon a Cowboy Maggie McGinnis



What's the book about:
Yoga instructor Jessalyn Alcott radiates peace, calm, and serenity—on the outside. Inside, she still feels like the broken, desperate girl from the trailer park. She's got dark secrets she can't share, which is why she never lets her relationships go beyond the third date. But when she travels to the Whisper Creek dude ranch for a friend's wedding, Jess is enchanted by a cowboy whose deep blue eyes, dimpled smile, and rock-hard body make it tough to remember why she keeps running scared.

Cole Driscoll has struggled to find his place on a family ranch where he's always played second fiddle. His future might be uncertain, but he's sure of one thing: He wants Jess by his side. Easier said than done. When it comes to getting close, she's full of excuses, and he longs to fix the hurt he sees in her eyes. Now that she's at Whisper Creek, there's nothing he wants more than to break down the walls around her heart and heal her pain with the power of love.


My thoughts on the book:

Jessalyn has everything together on the outside. She is so happy to be going back to Whispering Creek and see her best friends and attending another wedding, but most excited to have a break and secretly see Cole. As she walking out the door the past comes and haunts her she thought she hid all that and left it in the past she never thought it would come and find her, now what is she going to do? Cole is really struggling with finding who he is, where he stands, and where he belongs. He is ready for this wedding to be over and have his ranch back. He is so excited to see Jess again but when she shows up he knows he's in trouble in more ways then one and he's ready to figure out Jess. 
 I loved this book, this is one of those book that with in the first page its starts off really good and just gets better with each page. There are some really tough issues dealt with and some not so fun topics but that only made the book that much better. There is so much chemistry and love in this book that you just want the book never to end. This book is so worth the read and is so enjoyable.

Accidentally in Love Laura Drewry



What's the book about:
Ellie Palmer and cops don’t mix, and getting pulled over by Officer Brett Hale—again—doesn’t help. Neither does being forced to take a safe-driving course with him. Brett’s by-the-book attitude leaves Ellie ice-cold, and his rock-hard body won’t change that. Still, the more time she spends with the guy, the more she finds herself warming up to his unexpected charms.
 
Even though Brett comes off like a boy scout, Ellie has sparked something he wants badly enough to get him to rethink his past mistakes. But when her ex shows up, Brett makes it his mission to keep Ellie safe in the here and now. His gut tells him the guy’s trouble, and Ellie must agree, because she doesn’t complain when Brett pulls her close. To keep her safe, though, he’ll have to choose between breaking her heart . . . and breaking the rules.

My thoughts on the book:
To say Ellie Palmer doesn't like cops would be being really nice, she hates them is more like it. Only problem is she has a lead foot and has run ins with one cop repeatedly he seems to have it out for her and his last time pulling who over is no exception to that rule. Problem is now she is forced to interact with a cop because of her ticket, and then part of her past comes and faces her and she knows she has no where to turn to or does she. 
 Brett Hale has one nemesis speeding and has no problem pulling people over who do it. His moto is safety first. He is not sure what Ellie's problem is and wants to know why she has it out for cops its not like its a secret that she doesn't want anything to do with them. When Brett is faced with solving a case involving Ellie he knows he need to prove to her not  all cops are bad and not all cops have it out for her. 
This is a really fun book it starts off strong and stays that way till the end of the book. Ellie and her craziness is fun, the interactions she has with her crazy friends is no exception to the rule. The chemistry between the characters starts off not even there really and builds up to amazing its not a slow process but prefect. I think the only thing I can say about the book I did not like was the book could have done with out so much of the cursing. Over all this book is fun and really enjoyable. The pace is steady and you find yourself having a hard time putting it down.

Bachelorette for Sale West Side romance #1 Gail Chianese



What's the book about:

As far as Cherry Ryan is concerned, the bright lights of Hollywood are nothing but glare after her heart is broken on a reality show for millions to see. Instead she's throwing herself into fundraising for the local community center that was a priceless lifeline to her as a kid. But when a volunteer for the singles auction bails at the last minute, Cherry finds herself on the block—and sold to Jason Valentine, a handsome contractor with a gorgeous body—and a really bad attitude about her days in the limelight…  
Cherry soon finds that Jason's more than eye candy, and not entirely sweet—especially his quest to win the bid for the center's renovation. Mixing business with pleasure doesn't seem like such a good idea—until Jason has a chance to reveal the big heart beneath his surly exterior. Cherry's falling for him hard, but trust isn't easy when you've been burned. To conquer her fears will take a giant leap of faith—straight into the spotlight again…

My thoughts on the book:

Cherry has had it with men and she is ready to just live life and enjoy the small thing right now with out adding guy or relationship in her life. First and foremost she wants to get the center up and going and keep her grandparents from killing each other, but it seems that the world and her best friend/sister has other plans, will she be able to follow through and deal with what else was in store or will she have to walk away and learn to love again in another time in her life?  Jason has about had it with having to deal with everything being so much hard then it needs to be. He is working really hard to get his business off the ground but it seem that other people have plans and he is ready to loose it. He is also ready to kill Dave a slow and painful death he doesn't need him medalling in his personal life right now and when he get caught off guard on his way to impress the people who could make or break his business.
 I thought this book was a fun read over all. There was parts in the book it really had you guessing what was going to happen next and have you on the edge of your seat and turning the pages wanting to find out. There was a small and I mean small part where it dragged for a few pages but not so bad it took away from the story or the book it self. I really enjoyed the fun in the book and the over all likeness of the characters. you really can not go wrong with this book. I will say about 3/4 away through I kept hoping that there was going to be a sequel to this book I was glad to see there is can't wait to read more about these fun friends.

Again Alabama Susan Sands




What's the book about:
Cammie Laroux is back in Alabama—again.

Dragged back to her small town to help her mother recover from surgery while rescuing the family event planning business should be a cinch. Even for a disgraced television chef, right? Wrong.

Among the many secrets Cammie’s family’s been hiding is the fact that their historic home is falling down. Oh, and the man hired to restore the house, Grey Harrison, is the same high school and college love of her life who thrashed her heart and dreams ten years ago. Yeah, that guy.

Grey, a widower with a young daughter, has never stopped loving Cammie, and when they are face to face once again, the chemistry is off the charts. Cammie may be in full-blown denial, but letting go is no longer in Grey’s vocabulary, even when winning Cammie’s forgiveness and renovating their love may seem like an impossible build even for a master architect and carpenter.

As Cammie finds herself forgetting all the reasons she can’t trust Grey or love again, he finds himself remembering all the reasons he wants her to stay with him in Alabama… forever.

My thoughts on the book:

Cammie is tricked into coming back to her home town the one place she has always wanted out, it holds memories that she would rather stay in the past locked away where they can not sneak out at cause "misery". One her first day in town she faces her family and a memory that is best left just that or at least thats what she tells her siblings why they wait out moms surgery. Grey, is set to start work on his neighbors house when he is faced with the love of his life who he has not seen in 10 years, and the 10years has been nothing but heartache. Expect for his beautiful daughter his is headstrong and ready to take on him and the world if need be. He has one thing on his mind is getting the love of his life back and nothing will stop him or so he thinks. 

I really had a fun time reading this book there were ups and downs in the book but in a good way. There were some tough subject brought up that not many authors I see write about but this author handled it with such grace and didn't in a way to write a story about it with out making it the whole story or making the story seem to heavy. I loved the characters in the story the struggles were real. The chemistry with not just the 2 main characters but with most was amazing and well written. I loved the brother/sister ness she brought to the book, no family is perfect but she had a fun way of making this family fun and wanting them to be friends. this book is worth the read, for sure.

Blueprints Barbara Delinsky


What's the book about:
Some women are born with an instinct for knowing how things work
-and what to do when they break.

Caroline MacAfee is a skilled carpenter, her daughter Jamie, a talented architect. Together they are the faces of Gut It!, a home renovation series on local public television. Caroline takes pride in her work, and in the way she connects with the show's audience. But when she is told the network wants her daughter to replace her as host-the day after Caroline's fifty-sixth birthday-she is devastated. The fallout couldn't come at a worse time. 
For Jamie, life changes overnight when, soon after learning of the host shift, her father and his new wife die in a car accident that orphans their two-year-old son. Accustomed to organization and planning, she is now grappling with a toddler who misses his parents, a fiancĂ© who doesn't want the child, a staggering new attraction, and a work challenge that, if botched, could undermine the future of both MacAfee Homes and Gut It!
For Caroline, hosting Gut It! is part of her identity. Facing its loss, she feels betrayed by her daughter and old in the eyes of the world. Her ex-husband's death thrusts her into the role of caregiver to his aging father. And then there's Dean, a long-time friend, whose efforts to seduce her awaken desires that have been dormant for so long that she feels foreign to herself.
Who am I? Both women ask, as the blueprints they've built their lives around suddenly need revising. While loyalties shift, decisions hover, and new relationships tempt, their challenge comes not only in remaking themselves, but in rebuilding their relationship with each other.

My thoughts on the book:
I usually summarize the main characters and my thoughts on each one and there parts in the book. For this book I won't do that because I feel like for the first portion of the book there were to many characters and to much going on. Towards the middle of the book it did come down to mother and daughter and there views, which is different for a book about life and romance. I felt with this book there was to many details and the book could have been from Caroline's and Dean's point of view and her and Dean's story and then another book  written about Jamie and Chip's story to include the a different view to include the guys point of view and that may have made the story a little bit more interesting. I feel that the story lagged and the amount of detail even down to the design on plates, really took away from the story because it was to much and to overwhelming at points. There were good parts in the story but that was about half way through and then it went up and down from there. Over all I didn't like this book that much, I can't give it a one rating because it was not the bad. I would say this is about a 2 1/2 star for sure.

Forget Me Not, Erika Marks Loveless and Dunn Book 3



What's the book about:
When aspiring-writer Mallory Reynolds packed up for New York City, she ditched more than her quiet hometown of Magnolia Bay—she left her high-school sweetheart, Josh Loveless, behind. But when the big city didn’t deliver big contracts on her novels, she turned to writing erotica under the pen name Farrah Ivory to spare her family any embarrassment. Soon, her scandalously-sexy series, The Lost Diaries of Scarlet, is a break-out hit. Just as Mallory begins to enjoy her sweet success, her publisher leaks her true identity and a media firestorm ensues. Exposed, she decides there’s nowhere to hide—except for home.
For Josh Loveless, getting over Mallory Reynolds hasn’t been easy, but he’s done his best to move on. For starters, he’s turned his love of the outdoors and rock-climbing into his own business. And just as things are starting to settle for him, he learns Mallory’s coming home to ride out her scandal, and suddenly his world is turned upside down again…
Can Mallory convince her friends and family that she’s still the same good-hearted girl they knew? And more importantly, can Josh trust the woman she’s become, and give her a second chance to rewrite their love story with a happy ending?
My thoughts on the book:
Mallory has wanted to do two things in her life she wants to be a writer and she wants to marry Josh Loveless. Only thing is she never thought she would have to choose between the two.

Finally five years later he is excited to get things going again for his rock climbing store, but when Mallory crashes back into his life he not sure what to make of it or where it will go. 
This is a fun and short read can be read easily in one setting. The book has a lot of fun people in it that really make the book but they storyline keeps you turning the pages to find out whats is happening. There is a fun amount of chemistry. This book is worth the read and is really fun.

The Closer You Get Carter Ashby


What's the book about:


If there’s one thing Rye Holcomb hates, it’s small, tight-knit towns with high virtues and zero tolerance for outsiders. Fidelity is just such a town. And Rye is just such an outsider. So when he and his brother, Cash, take jobs in Fidelity, Rye decides not to get too comfortable. Which is why he is avoiding some rather confusing feelings for his new boss, Cora McKay.

Cora was born, raised, and baptized in Fidelity. She owns a thriving construction business, has a close circle of friends, and is the breadwinner for her mother and four sisters. The one thing she lacks is a sex life, something she’s never longed for until now. One conversation with Rye sparks her sexual awakening, and, in spite of his reputation as a man-whore, Cora can’t resist giving in to his advances. 

As Rye enjoys initiating his virgin employer, and Cash experiences a relationship with a man for the first time in his life, they begin to think of Fidelity as home. But small towns have brought them trouble in the past, and it appears Fidelity holds trouble for their future. Can their newfound relationships be enough to overcome a past that relentlessly follows them? Can two men who have been burned by love learn to trust again?

My thoughts on the book:

Rye and Cash are brothers and they trust no one, they are moving again to yet another small town. Rye goes to a job interview and with one thing on his mind women. He has been accused of treating them like dirt and has no respect for them. He has and I don't care attitude and is just set to make his brother happy and live on his own terms. Cash is laid back and is ready to settle down in one place he has secrets and he is so ready to put them behind him and move on and find the love of his life but he seems like he just can't get a break. Cora and Adam have been friends since kids they both are from the small town of Fidelity and have each others backs no matter what. They are both looking for love and once doesn't realize it until its right in front of them. 
I am not a huge fan of this book. There are two stories going on at once and I get why they "make" the book overall. However I feel like if both stories could have been told in two separate books it would have been a lot better and easier to keep everything straight some points at the beginning were confusing.. However I will say the storyline was well written the author did a good job grabbing your attention and leave on important part of the book hanging through most of it which had you turning the pages and wanting more.
