THREE 🎩🎩🎩 hats from Britt for Jack!
Instalove and hilarity strike right from the start in this one! Quickly growing into equal parts sweet and humorous Jack and Harper have one heck of a roller coaster of a story. I had a lot of back and forth with how I felt reading this. There was so much I really, really loved but there were also somethings that really killed how much I enjoyed their story too.
This book is definitely there in the romcom territory. Some of the most outrageously funny scenes I’ve ever read were in here. Harper has a true talent for getting herself into to the most insanely hilarious trouble. The sweet was also off the charts with these two. Jack is the epitome of swoony, protective, alpha male and I had no problem quickly falling for him.
But alas, some things just didn’t work for me. At times the story was a bit jumpy making me feel like I had missed something along the line. That paired with some personal no go’s for me *sorry to be vague, but no spoilers here folks* left me a little less invested in their story. But with a solid HEA that pulled me back in, I’d say overall this was a good read.
FOUR 🎩🎩🎩🎩 hats from Britt for Cole!
Nail biting suspense and sweet romance come together in a heart pounding read with Cole. Cole and Alex’s story grabs you right from the start and keeps you flying through the pages non stop. I was drawn in just as much by the shocking twists as I was by the serious swoon with this one. Every time I thought I knew what was coming I was surprised again keeping me constantly on my toes. All of that mystery and suspense is balanced out with a beautiful love that wraps around your heart.
I loved nearly everything about Cole and Alex. Good and bad, ups and downs, these two were magnificent through it all! This book would have been a solid five stars for me, but after all the twists and turns and epic breathtaking moments I was a bit let down by how fast the ending was. I would have loved to have had more details filled out on things that had occurred. Overall though, this a fantastic fast paced suspenseful romance that will steal your heart!
I’m driving along when I see a woman sitting in a puddle on the side of the road. I stop to help her and instantly need to have her. Our chemistry is explosive, quite literally. It seems we are going to have to repair a few things. She’s feisty and sexy as hell, but I keep screwing it up.
This day couldn’t get any worse. All that’s left is for lightning to strike me. And then it does, in the form of sexy mechanic, Jack. If I could keep my wits about me, I might survive him, but I seem to have verbal diarrhea around him. He brings excitement into my life and sex to my books.
After leaving the military as a Marine Scout Sniper, he suffered from PTSD and was barely functioning most days. Nightmares plagued him most nights and it took him three years to be a functioning part of society. While out running off a nightmare, he finds a woman stumbling out of the woods, barely alive. She looks to him for protection. She looks to him to save her. Can he overcome his own demons to keep the woman he is falling in love with out of the hands of a killer?
She has suffered through her parents being murdered in front of her. She spent years in foster care, shuffled from one unloving home to the next. Now she’s been kidnapped and if she doesn’t figure out how to escape, she will die at the hands of the man who killed her parents. She needs someone to protect her and love her. Can Cole be that man or will her kidnapper find her and take her from the man she has come to love?
I’m a stay at home mom that loves to read. Some of my favorite titles are Pride and Prejudice, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Horatio Hornblower. I started writing when I was trying to come up with suggestions on ways I could help bring in some extra money. I came up with the idea that I could donate plasma because you could earn an extra $500/month. My husband responded with, “No. Find something else. Write a blog. Write a book.” I didn’t think I had anything to share on blog that a thousand other mothers hadn’t already thought of. I decided to take his challenge seriously and sat down to write my first book, Jack. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed writing. From there, the stories continued to flow and I haven’t been able to stop. I hope my readers enjoy my books as much as I enjoy writing them. Between reading, writing, and taking care of three small kids, my days are quite full.
