Code Name: Genesis (Jameson Force Security #1) by Sawyer Bennett **5 Star Review**

Code Name: Genesis (Jameson Force Security, Book #1)
Sawyer Bennett
Release Date: May 7, 2019

 

Synopsis:

Years ago, they were in love. She was an up-and-coming superstar and he was the devilishly handsome security professional hired to keep her safe. They fell hard and fast, no matter how they tried to resist one another. But not everyone around them was happy about their relationship, and a string of lies and deceit destroyed what they once had.

Having just taken the helm of a nationally renowned protective services company, Kynan McGrath is looking to rebrand and revamp his career. The newly crowned Jameson Force Security is moving from the glitz and glamour of Las Vegas to the mountainous steel town of Pittsburgh, and the last thing Kynan has time for is to deal with his past.

More than a decade has passed since their split, but even a bruised and battered heart remembers its first love. So when Joslyn Meyers comes to him for help, Kynan reluctantly agrees to keep her safe from a terrifying stalker who keeps threatening her life.

As the danger they face continues to intensify, Kynan realizes he’ll stop at nothing to protect the woman who turned her back on him all those years ago. Because one thing is certain—no matter how hard he tries to convince himself otherwise, Joslyn still has his heart.

My Take:

Wow!! This book was so good! I loved the heart pounding suspense that lasts throughout the book, but mostly at the end. I could not put it down.  Kynan McGrath is oh so sexy, especially with that accent, and right from the start I felt myself really pulling for him and Joslyn.  I loved that Joslyn wasn’t the usual famous person.  I felt myself really relating to her on a level that I didn’t anticipate.  I also fell hard for the side characters, which I rarely do.  I loved their little group and even teared up at the end.  This book pulls you in and doesn’t let go.  The Jameson Force Security Series is one that I definitely plan on reading every single book! I very highly recommend and cannot wait for the next book (Cruce’s Story)!

Tequila High By M. Leighton **New Release**

TEQUILA HIGH r

Tequila High

by: M. Leighton

 

She has one unbreakable rule. He’s determined to make her break it. Who will break first?

Haley Brandt isn’t the one-night-stand type, but too much tequila and a man with two sinfully dark eyes left her breathless and willing to break her own rules. Her only solace was the fact that she’d never see him again.

Until the next morning, when she finds out he’s her ride out of town and back to the ranch where she grew up.

Nixon Holt works with Haley’s father, so Haley makes her position clear—she doesn’t get involved with ranch employees. Ever. At nineteen, she’d learned that lesson the hard way, and it became her one unbreakable rule.

But Nixon makes his position clear, too; he’s going to wear down Haley’s defenses, and he won’t stop until she breaks all her rules for him. He’s well on his way when Haley finds out the one thing that could make her hate him. Nixon is left with two choices: walk away or break all his rules for her.

ERIK by Sawyer Bennett **New Release**

 

Erik: An Arizona Vengeance Novel
Sawyer Bennett
Release Date: November 5, 2018

 

Synopsis:

The Arizona Vengeance are developing a reputation on the ice as one of hockey’s top teams. But one player’s reputation off the ice might just keep him from scoring. . . .

I’m having the time of my life with my new brothers on the Arizona Vengeance. We may be an expansion team, but after notching some big wins, the entire league knows to watch out for Erik Dahlbeck. That’s me.

The only person who doesn’t seem to think I’m so great? Blue Gardner, the hot-as-f*** flight attendant on our team plane. I sure wouldn’t mind joining the mile-high club with her, but besides bringing me lukewarm coffee, she won’t give me the time of day. Whatever I did to rub Blue the wrong way, my teammates think it’s hilarious. After all, we’re used to women flocking to us. #puckbunnies

When I run into Blue back on land, I’m shocked to learn how she spends her time off: taking care of her handicapped brother. There are layers to this girl I never imagined, layers I can’t wait to peel away. And that’s a new feeling for me.

But first I’ve got to find a way to melt that ice-cold stare. Because as much as I try to pretend I don’t care what Blue thinks of me, how can you not care when you’re falling for someone?

The Arizona Vengeance will continue in 2019!

Excerpt

 

  “Hello?” Brody calls through the screen.

  “Hey.” I hold it open, gesturing for him to come inside. “Enter at your own risk. I’m living inside an oven.”

  “Is your air conditioning broken?” he asks, but my eyes are on the cold beer and pizza in his hands.

  “No, I don’t have it. Are we having a party?”

 “The game’s on,” he says with a grin. “It’s been a while since we watched the Cubs together, so   I grabbed some game food and came right over.”

  I feel the smile slip over my lips. He thought to come here to watch the game with me.

  Brody always was the sweetest guy I knew. Seems that hasn’t changed.

  “Fun,” I reply. “I’ll grab some plates. We should sit on the floor.”

  “Why?”

  “It’s cooler down there.”

  He blinks at me, considering, and then shrugs one shoulder and sets the pizza in the middle of the floor, sits, and opens the box.

  “Thin crust pepperoni,” he says. “I hope this is still your favorite.”

  “It is. I’ll be right back.” I hurry into the kitchen to get the plates, and take a moment to lean on the countertop, my hand over my chest, to catch my breath. If he keeps this up, I’ll fall in love with him, and that can only lead to disaster.

  He’s leaving.

  “The Cubs are winning,” he calls from the other room. I grab our plates and join him, sitting a few feet away, and reach for a slice of pizza. 

  “O’Shaughnessy has been badass this year.”

  “He’s badass every year,” I reply around a bite of food, and then laugh when he frowns at me.   “What? It’s true.”

  “Hmm.” He swigs his beer, and we fall into a comfortable silence, eating and watching baseball. “Oh, come on! You should have caught that!”

  “You always did get riled up watching baseball.”

  He smiles at me, then wipes his mouth with a napkin. “There’s no other way to watch it. God, you weren’t kidding. It’s damn hot in here.”

  “I know, I’m sorry. We could go somewhere else to watch the game.”

  “No, I like having you to myself,” he replies, surprising me. “I’ll just take my shirt off.”

  Before I can find enough brain cells to form a sentence, he whips his shirt over his head and tosses it onto the couch.

  Jesus, Mary, and Joseph. Times a million.

  I blink rapidly, trying not to stare at the tanned, toned, muscley goodness that is Brody Chabot, but it’s impossible.

  He’s like the most glorious work of art in the world, and I’d challenge anyone to be able to look away.

  His arms, his abs, his freaking shoulders, flex as he moves to grab another slice of pizza. How he can eat while all of my synapses are exploding one by one is beyond me.

  I think I just lost all bodily function.

  And I haven’t even seen him all the way naked. This is just the upper half.

  I bite my lip and take a sip of my beer, trying to distract myself.

 

5 Star Review

 

Kristen Proby does it again!  Absolutely LOVED Tempting Brooke!  Childhood friends who drifted apart are forced to come back together and Holy Sh*t it’s HOT!! I loved the immediate connection between Brody and Brooke.  I found myself wishing the book would never end.  I wasn’t done with their story!  This is a must read.

The Iron Flower by Laurie Forest

unnamed

The Iron Flower

by: Laurie Forest

SYNOPSIS
 

Elloren Gardner and her friends were only seeking to right a few wrongs, but their actions have propelled them straight into the ranks of the realm-wide Resistance against Gardnerian encroachment. As the Resistance struggles against the harsh rulings of High Priest Marcus Vogel and the Mage Council, Elloren begins to realize that none of the people she cares about will be safe if Gardneria seizes control of the Western Realm.

With tensions heating up in Verpacia, more and more Gardnerian soldiers continue to descend upon the university…led by none other than Lukas Grey, now commander of the newly rebuilt Fourth Division base. Though Elloren tries to keep him at arm’s length, Lukas is determined to wandfast to her, convinced that she has inherited her grandmother’s magic—the prophesied power of the Black Witch. As his very nearness seems to awaken a darkness inside her, Elloren finds it more and more difficult to believe that she’s truly powerless, as her uncle always claimed.

Caught between her growing feelings for the rebellious Yvan Guriel and the seductive power offered by Lukas Grey, Elloren must find a way to stay true to what she knows is right and protect everyone she loves…even if that means protecting them from herself.

Praise for THE BLACK WITCH Chronicles

“Elloren learns to question authority and Gardnerian history, while developing real empathy for different races and species. Forest uses a richly imagined magical world to offer an uncompromising condemnation of prejudice and injustice.” —Booklist, starred review

“Exquisite character work, an elaborate mythology, and a spectacularly rendered universe make this a noteworthy debut, which argues passionately against fascism and xenophobia.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

“This briskly paced, tightly plotted novel enacts the transformative power of education, creating engaging characters set in a rich alternative universe with a complicated history that can help us better understand our own.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review
