This is book # 5 in the Alpha Ops series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  It is my recommendation for full understanding and comprehension for the reader, this series should be read in the order intended.  It does not disappoint.
Simon and Sadie have a complicated past.  Now it appears they will have a complicated future as well.  Sadie cannot tell him about her training and op.  He cannot talk about his either.
Sadie was hurt by his actions in the past.  Can she forgive what he does now?  She cannot seem to stay away from the magnetic pull that draws her to him.  The attraction still pulls at them both.  The sparks are flying!
Simon is trying to figure her out, while also saving his mark from being taken.  If only they had gotten it right in the past.  Then maybe the future would look brighter.  I think if I had more thumbs I would give it 5 thumbs up!  I give this story a 5/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Where the fairy tale ends, destiny begins.
Elizabeth Tanner is no Tinkerbell, and her life is no fairy tale. Broke and drowning in student loans, the one thing she wants more than anything is a scholarship from the Trinity Foundation. But after the ancient Irish text she's studying turns out to be more than just a book, she becomes their prisoner instead. And when Trinity reveals Elizabeth is half-Fae, she finds herself at the center of a plot to save the magical races of Ireland from a brutal civil war. As Commander of Trinity's elite warriors, Finn O'Connell isn't used to having his authority challenged. He doesn't know whether to punish or protect the infuriating young woman in his custody. When he discovers the Dark Fae want to use Elizabeth's abilities to control the source of all power in the universe, he'll risk everything to help her. At the mercy of Trinity and enslaved to the Dark Fae, Elizabeth finds herself alone on the wrong side of an Irish myth …

You have my heart

This is book # 1 in the Second Shot series.  (There is a prequel so this is technically book # 2)  They should be read in order.  This will give the reader the background and understanding to make the books more enjoyable.

Noah and Josie go way back.  He is her brother's best friend.  This makes her unreachable and a relationship they might have taboo.  Her brother does not want her to have feelings for him.  Too late.
Josie has been in love with Noah almost from the beginning.  They got one special night together before he went away to boot camp.  Now, years later, it is awkward between them.  Josie needs a job, though, and she is sticking to her guns.
Such a sweet and powerful story!  A real page turner.  I was absorbing each page and could not wait to finish.  The character development is right on and the pace is just quick enough to make you second guess.  I give this story a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Trust me

Theodore AKA Theo meets James at a club.  Instead of exchanging names and numbers, they hook up.  Then, Theo stars his new job and finds out who James is.
James has so much pain and hurt from the past.  From his own mother, he has been rejected and hurt many times.  How do you learn to love others if you have never learned to love yourself?
Theo and James get together when the urge strikes them.  What if the urge to give a cuddle comes on?  Theo is usually a guy who is in a relationship.  Being a booty call is new for him.
I loved how this book handles the hard subjects.  We learn about mental illness, love, and friendship all in the same story.  It was a terrific read and so hard to put down!  I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Mine to keep

This is book # 7 in the Fated Date Agency (also the Fated & Dominated) series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  The series makes more sense and there is further reader understanding when read in order.

Haskel and Tuomo meet after it has been decided that an Omega must be sacrificed for the greater good.  In this case, Tuomo is the Omega that their leader has in mind.  He is single, no family, and the sacrifice needs to be made so that others can have food to survive.
Tuomo is willing to do his part, he loves his pack.  Haskel has just found him and thinks there are other ways to solve this food problem.  Can he convince the leader that meeting his mate is more important?
This was a quick and sweet look at what would happen if you met your mate, just to lose him.  I found this an easy read.  I have given it 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

How Willa Got Her Groove Back by Emily McKay Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary Romance Series: Creative HeArts #2, companion series Publication: February 25th, 2016 When your life feels like a bad movie, rewrite the script.

When Willa Schofer's father comes home from a business trip with an über-famous new fiancée, Willa's senior year blows up in paparazzi-fueled flames. Overnight, she has a new house, a new car, and a new soon-to-be stepbrother--the unbelievably hot, unbelievably arrogant, Finn McCain. Thank god he's constantly pushing her buttons, or she might do something irresponsible. Like fall for the jerk.

Just when Willa's decided to avoid him for, oh, ever, Finn lands in the center of her senior project team. Seriously--how hard is it to shake a guy? At least her work on the project snagged the attention of the (second) hottest guy in school. He might only be into her because of her famous stepmom, and he's not quite as exciting as a certain annoying housemate,…

Blog Tour - PLAY TO WIN

About PLAY TO WIN (book 3 in The Risky Business Series): Falling in love with polar-opposite men was an intoxicating ride that nearly ended Sage Reese's life. Now it's time for Sage to decide: Parker, the clean-cut, filthy-rich business magnate . . . or Ryker, the tough-as-nails undercover detective. Her choice? Neither. Because she can't stand the thought of coming between two brothers-in-arms finally trying to repair their friendship.

Yet not everyone feels the same way, including a mysterious woman who's come to Ryker and Parker for help. Sage knows firsthand how hard it is for the two former Marines to resist a damsel in distress. But something just doesn't feel right.

Now there's a danger closing in that only Sage can see, and she intends to do everything she can to protect Parker and Ryker-even at the risk of losing them both. EXCERPT: There might be better ways to wake up than sandwiched between two half-naked men, but if there was, I couldn’t imagine what it…

Cover Reveal - ROOKIE MOVE

COMING SEPTEMBER 6th: A sexy new hockey series from Sarina Bowen.  In high school they were the perfect couple—until the day Georgia left Leo in the cold...

Hockey player Leo Trevi has spent the last six years trying to do two things: get over the girl who broke his heart, and succeed in the NHL. But on the first day he’s called up to the newly franchised Brooklyn Bruisers, Leo gets checked on both sides, first by the team’s coach—who has a long simmering grudge, and then by the Bruisers’ sexy, icy publicist—his former girlfriend Georgia Worthington.

Saying goodbye to Leo was one of the hardest things Georgia ever had to do—and saying hello again isn’t much easier. Georgia is determined to keep their relationship strictly professional, but when a press conference microphone catches Leo declaring his feelings for her, things get really personal, really fast...
