Deserve A Chance by Natalie Ann

Another great read by an author who just keeps getting better with each book (although I still love the first two in the Road series best).

Zach and Amber have both overcome childhoods where they felt they were abandoned or unloved.  Both are successful and they hook up at a medical conference in Vegas.  When Amber sneaks out while Zach is still sleeping, he tries everything he can to find her.  Circumstance brings them back together and the feelings that started in Vegas are rekindled (and by that I mean on fire)

Another great thing is catching a glimpse of the other characters from past books. But this book is a stand-alone, so no worries that you have to read in order.

Great characters and plots make me a fan of this author.  Although I was awarded an advanced copy of Deserve a Chance, this review reflects my opinion and is freely given.  I think anyone who enjoys a good love story will love this book and series.

Sweet and Sassy Christmas - A Time for Romance

Great value for all those who love winter centric stories with happy endings. I was attracted to this set because I had read books by two of these authors and liked their books and the characters they invent.

I think my favorites are Road to Reality (which I had already read and reviewed)  by Natalie Ann, His Christmas Promise by Alicia Street, The Sheriff Meets His Match by Jacquie Biggar, and A Kiss Beneath A Christmas Star by Tamara Ferguson, but the editors who put this book together did a great job.

A Cozy Candlelit Christmas

As a big fan of not every book I read has to educate, I am a big fan of the author, Tilly Tennant.  Her main characters are delightful, her locations are unique, and her plots are fun to read.  In A Cozy Candlelit Christmas (perfect title, right?) Isla gets a letter from a solicitor that the grandmother she never met has left her an inheritance. The problem is she has to meet the father who abandoned her 20 years ago and build a relationship in order for everyone to qualify. 

A few days before Christmas Isla gets on a plane to meet her father, stepmother, and half sister and brother in the Swiss Alps. She plans to meet him, qualify for her inheritance, and get back on the plane in time to spend Christmas with her mom. The snow has different plans.

A Cozy Candlelight Christmas is a great winter book.  When the weather is cold and the holidays are just around the corner, this is a perfect book to cozy up and read.

I received a free copy of this book. This review is freely given and my opinion.  Enjoy!!

The Wedding Gift

The Wedding Gift is the latest addition to the Colorado Billionaires by Regina Duke and it is a winner.  I liked the characters and how they grew as they got to know each other. 

When Kenzie's boyfriend gets them kicked out of the home she thought they were buying (thought being the operative word), she takes his restored Ford Mustang and pushes it off into a gully, on her way to her parents' farm.  When she arrives she figures out that they need help and money (which they think she has from the sale of her house). 

The next morning on the way to her new job she meets Clayton, while he is "hiding" from his father who wants Clayton to grow up before his trust fund kicks in (why does everyone have a trust fund but me, hmmm). Kenzie and Clayton bond. 

The Colorado Billionaires series is a great HEA series. Regina Duke has once again given the reader a reason to come back over and over again.  Her plots are good and not repeated, the characters are kind, or ditzy, or mean, or angry, or scared, etc., in other words, well defined, just what a reader wants.  I have enjoyed each of this authors books and recommend them to anyone who likes a well written love story with a bit of strife before the characters figure "it" out. 

I received an ARC of The Wedding Gift.  This review is mine and offered freely.

A Southern Comfort Christmas

A Southern Comfort Christmas by Barbara Lohr is a follow-up to Finding Southern Comfort, which I read a year or so ago and enjoyed. In this installment Harper is trying to get her decorating business off the ground by helping persnickety Southern women with decorating themes for the holidays. Of course, they don't like her ideas and she is desperately seeking ways to please. Then Cameron comes home with a fractured ankle, there is nothing but trouble with the wedding plans, and Bella (Cameron's daughter) is falling back into her not eating issues again while she tries to fit in at her new school. So how was your day.

A Southern Comfort Christmas was great, especially if you are someone like me who likes to check back with characters after their story ends. It's also a good book as a standalone, but much better if you read Finding Southern Comfort. It's also a perfect Christmas (holiday) story. I do think it works better if you read the first book in the series, even though it has all the elements of a good book.

I received an ARC of this book. This review is freely given.
