Learning to love

This is the 2nd book in the Redemption series.  This book can be read as a standalone.  I recommend reading the series, since the author always gives us an HEA and makes it easier to understand each companion novel.
Michael meets Chloe, when she tags along with her sister to a tennis lesson he is giving.  He recognizes right away that she has a lot in common with him and reminds him of his past weaknesses.  Then he learns to like her outgoing personality.
Chloe is bored, at home for the summer and sick of being in her sister Kristin's shadow.  Everyone just assumes she is the fat sister and not worth their time.  Well, not dating has given her time to like herself, be almost finished with a double major, and spend time wondering why her sister's boyfriend has forgotten her.
Michael is in Texas to solve his past.  It is causing trouble with his present.  He is also getting distracted by the amazing and lovely Chloe.  Why is he suddenly noticing her more than her sister?

This is book # 5 in the University Park series.  By the authors own words: *This novella takes place before the epilogue in The Winning Side and A Different Side. This book can be read as a standalone, but it is recommended you read the series.*
The story continues for Raven and Lexi as they are now in New Orleans and he is beginning his NFL career.  They are steadily working on their relationship moving forward and planning for the future.  
Lexi is adjusting to living in a new city, being away from her family and being loved by Raven's.  There is so much going on and she is afraid still, that Raven will give in to his dark side and she will lose everything.  He assures her all the time that he loves her, but she cannot help it.
Raven is stressed and worried.  He is trying to be there for Lexi, not let his team down and take them all the way.  This is his chance and he does not want to blow it.
I loved this book!  This is such a good and endearing book about how love endures - eve…

Fate always wins

This is book 8 in the Fated Date Agency series This book can be read as a standalone.  I recommend reading them in order to understand the basic story inside the series, but it is not necessary.  It is also a fun series to read.
Stefan and Langford have a history that only one of them remembers well.  When Stefan hears from the agency about his mate, he decides to contact him right away.  There are circumstances that may keep them apart.  He decides to go on with his life and find a new job.
Langford wonders how he can have a mate, when he never contacted the agency.  He has enough on his plate as far as relationships go.  He does not want to mislead Stefan.  If only he could stay away from him and resist.
This story is one of passion, friendship, and a little thing like fate.  I found this book to move at a good pace and the characters just drew me in quick!  This story was a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Enter to Win a  STEAL ME Prize Pack! STEAL ME New York's Finest #2 Lauren Layne Releasing Nov 24th, 2015 Forever IN HOT PURSUIT
Being a cop might be in Anthony Moretti's blood, but protecting and serving the city of New York has always been more than just the family business. If that means his love life stays locked up, well then that's just another sacrifice made in the line of duty. That is, until he sets eyes on the gorgeous new waitress at The Darby Diner and suddenly Anthony's morning coffee is leaving him a whole lot more hot and bothered than usual. Though waitressing at The Darby isn't exactly Maggie Walker's dream job, it pays the bills and gives her time to work on her novel. Now if only she could stop fantasizing about gorgeous Anthony Moretti every time he sits down at her table, she'd really be in great shape. But when he needs her help identifying a criminal threatening The Darby—and Maggie recognizes her ex-husband—she fears her fresh start might be a…
