Boomerangers

By Heather M. Orgeron

Synopsis

Boomerangers [boo-muh-rang-ers] noun, informal: an adult that moves back home to live with a parent after a period of independence.

Spencer

I love sex. I love the power, the intimacy, the euphoria it brings. Too bad I’m not having any . . . You’d think as New Orleans’ most renowned sex therapist that I’d be swimming in single men. In a way, I am . . . except for the fact that one is in diapers and the other two are drowning in preteen hormones. As a single mother of three, my days are devoted to my clients and my kids, and my nights are spent with Fabio, my trusty vibrator. When my world begins to unravel, I have no choice but to move back home. And when my high school sweetheart comes waltzing back into my life, comedy and chaos ensue.

What can I say? I never said I could pick ’em, but you can bet your ass I know how to fix ’em.

Cooper

As soon as the ink dried on my divorce papers, I made myself a solemn vow: I was done with relationships. Moving home to take over my father’s firm was the plan, until Spencer decided to return, along with three souvenirs from the life she’s lived without me. 

I’ve been in love with the girl next door for nearly all of my life; the rest was spent trying to forget her. I’d give almost anything for a second chance with her, but I have no time for distractions—especially the kind that involve diapers, bottles, and eighteen-year commitments. 

The problem is, she’s already got me by the balls . . . and I’m beginning to feel the noose tightening around my heart.

Review

BOOMERANGERS is the first book I’ve read from Heather M. Orgeron and I found it to be an enjoyable read.  It’s a second chance romance between Spencer and Cooper, who broke up at the end of high school.  In the fifteen years since then, they’ve both been married, divorced, and Spencer has had three children: twelve year old twins Landon and Lake; and two year old Kyle.

I liked both Spencer and Cooper and was rooting for them to get back together.  Although to be honest, I can’t figure out why Cooper broke up with Spencer in the first place.  You see his reason during a flashback scene, but it just didn’t make sense to me, especially given that he didn’t capitalise on it.  To me, the way he behaved in that flashback looked like he was being forced to break up with her when he really didn’t want to.

I liked that Cooper accepted total responsibility for their breakup all those years ago and that he regretted letting her go.  The only thing that annoyed me about him was how fixated he was on the fact that Spencer’s kids were not his.  It’s almost like he resented their existence, although that is too harsh a description.  That being said, I loved his one-on-one time with Kyle.  In one particular scene, he became Kyle’s defender and protector, and facing off against that other adult and getting into lawyer mode was just plain hot.

BOOMERANGERS is a romantic comedy, and while there were times where I laughed, I also thought some of the humour was a bit forced, and that a scene or two were random and thrown in for humour’s sake.  It is told in dual POVs and comes with a very nice HEA.  As I said above, this is the first time I’ve read Heather’s work, and I would gladly read from her again.

The Banker (Modern Love # 3)

By Piper Rayne

Synopsis

Who knew my brother’s friend could be Mr. Right, and not just Mr. Right Now?

My brother refused to introduce me, so I blame him. If he’d just caved, and introduced me to Jasper, I wouldn’t be in this mess. I mean, really, what’s the big deal? I’m not interested in the guy’s looks.

Oh no, I want his cold hard cash. (Be honest, you were expecting that other four letter ‘c’ word weren’t you?)

Now, before you go getting all judgy, I’m not a gold digger. I have a legitimate business opportunity for Jasper to invest in. The problem is that my stick-up-his-ass brother is embarrassed that his twin sister invents kick ass sex toys. His problem, not mine.

So, I took matters into my own hands. Defeat isn’t a word in Lennon Hart’s dictionary.

Using my stealthy P.I. moves, I narrowed my search to a time and place where I knew I could find him. It was completely innocent. A chance meeting that would give me the opportunity to pitch my business.

It wasn’t until I sat down across from the gorgeous panty soaking man in front of me, that I realized I wanted so much more than just his money. I could very well want his heart if I wasn’t careful.

Apparently my P.I. skills aren’t as stellar as I thought because Jasper had his own secret—and it changed EVERYTHING.

Review

If you’ve read the previous two books in this series, you’ll know that Lennon is loud, proud and sexual, and she’s not afraid to show it.  I loved her personality.  I also admired her courage when she started a relationship with Jasper, especially considering she had never been in a committed one before.  I will say that I was a little disappointed with her family and how they treated her.  Yes, they love her, but they were also embarrassed by her looks, career choices and dating habits, and I was offended on her behalf several times.

Jasper is Lennon’s perfect match both in and out of the sheets.  I loved their coffee scenes and the chemistry between them was hot.  I can’t say much about Jasper other than he’s rich and he has a slightly kinky side that was fun to read.

I did enjoy this book, but I thought the conflict towards the end was too easy to predict; keeping secrets will always come back to bite you.  I was also disappointed that we never found out if Lennon got her sex-toy business off the ground.  After hearing about it throughout all three books, it seemed like it went no-where, which was a total let-down.

THE BANKER is told only in Lennon’s POV and it comes with a very sweet and romantic HEA.  While it’s part of a series, it can be read as a stand-alone.  THE BANKER is the final book in the Modern Love series, and it’s sad to say goodbye to these three amazing women and the men who love them.

Modern Love Series

Tempt The Boss

By Natasha Madison

Synopsis

Lauren
Going back to work was supposed to be a painless transition, but when my new boss turns out to be an arrogant, cocky jerk, he quickly turns my professional life into a world of torture. Okay, fine, calling him an asshat before knowing he was my boss wasn’t my finest moment. Hating him should be easy. I just never counted on him being so gorgeous or charming when he’s not annoying me.

Austin
I expected my new assistant to be professional and punctual, but all I’m getting are dirty looks and rude comments. I should fire the little hellion, but instead all I can think about is bending her over my desk and breaking every rule I’ve ever made for myself.

One look. One touch. One night. If we break the rules, our lives will never be the same again. 

Good thing rules were made to be broken. And besides, it feels so good to Tempt the Boss.

Review

TEMPT THE BOSS was the perfect light-hearted read I needed after having just finished a book that was very deep and emotional.

I tell him my number, and when he asks my name, I gladly tell him.
“The woman whose car you hit because you were texting while driving.”
He looks at me and his eyebrows pinch together.
“Is that name already taken?”

I liked both Lauren and Austin and thought they were a really good match for each other.  Six months after finding out her husband was cheating on her, Lauren is now a single mother to her two children and is re-entering the workforce after being a stay-at-home mum.  She’s temping as Austin’s PA and the two of them can’t help but rub each other the wrong way as they try to deny their attraction.  Both of them give as good as they get, especially when it comes to playing their pranks.  Was it childish?  Yes.  What it funny?  Absolutely.  The sexual tension between them was palpable and when they finally came together…HOT!

I’m not sure how I’m going to get anything done, because fucking her on my desk is the only thing I can think of that needs to be done right now.

I liked all the characters in this story (except for Jake⎯the cheating ex-husband⎯of course).  I liked Lauren’s sister, Kaleigh, and the bond they shared.  I liked Austin’s friends and the way they joked around with each other.  I also liked Barb, Austin’s former nanny and current employee, who was not afraid to tell him when he seriously messed up.

I really enjoyed this story, but there were a couple of things that got to me.  Firstly, I did get sick and tired of reading about what the two main characters were always wearing, right down to their accessories.  Secondly, there were two scenes where I felt like I was missing important backstory; for example, Austin knowing Jake’s mistress and Matthew’s relationship with Karrie.  The best way I can explain it is that I felt like those relationships had appeared in other books, but going by Natasha’s Goodreads booklist, that doesn’t seem to be the case.

TEMPT THE BOSS is told in dual POVs, which is fine, but be warned as there was quite a bit of scene repetition when the POV changed.  While it is a stand-alone, it is connected to SOMETHING SO RIGHT, as some of the characters from that book make a small appearance in this one.  I did see a big similarity between these two books, in that the lead female is a mother of two whose husband left her after cheating, who then regretted it and wanted her back.  I found the final chapter odd because it didn’t seem to focus on Lauren and Austin, instead focusing on Noah and Kaleigh, who started dating in this book.  The epilogue however was all about Lauren and Austin, and they do get their very happy ending.

Fear the Beard (The Dixie Warden Rejects MC #2)

By Lani Lynn Vale

Synopsis

Tally is a twenty-year-old single mother struggling to finish nursing school. Has she made mistakes in life? Sure, but her daughter isn’t one of them. She works hard, she studies even harder, and she’s only a few weeks away from graduating.
She’s living her life the best she knows how when she witnesses a near miss motorcycle accident between a car and a biker. A biker that happens to be the most talked about teacher at her college.

The moment she meets those startling blue, narrowly-escaped-death eyes, she realizes quickly that life as she knows it has changed. No longer will she be content to let life pass her by, even if it puts everything she’s worked so hard for in jeopardy.

***

Tommy is a highly skilled doctor. A teacher. A veteran. A fully-patched member of The Dixie Wardens MC. He’s lonely, but also set in his ways. What will it take for this man to accept that he needs to make some changes in his life? Apparently, it’ll take a guy in a truck, who’s preoccupied with his phone rather than focused on the road, nearly plowing into him on his bike at seventy miles per hour. Oh, and a twenty-something year old nursing student witnessing the entire thing from only a few feet away.

It only takes a second, a single heartbeat in time, as he looks into her worry-filled eyes to realize that he’d give anything for a single night with her. He may lose his job in the process, but after that one incredible night turns into an amazing weekend, he knows it’s worth the risk for the promise of her forever

Review

Firstly I love the cover of Fear the Beard and also I love the Dedication.  I recommend you read it as the story will make so much more sense and it is just beautiful between Tally and Tallulah, the love this mother has for her daughter.  As soon as I realised Tally get’s Hangry I knew she was my kind of girl!

Another beautiful part of this story is the way Tommy is with Tallulah, it fits perfectly with him being a doctor, brought tears to my eyes with the way he cared for her and also Tally for that matter.  There was great humour and banter between the characters and the age difference between Tommy and Tally made sense as he provided the calm and mature comfort for her and Tally also was very mature for her age considering she had her daughter so young, it all just made sense.

Fear the Beard is paced perfectly and dual POV help connect all the stories and Hadley provided an interesting surprise and I also enjoyed Ghost.

Tommy and Tally’s sex scenes were passionate and full of fire and I really enjoyed watching their story grow including Tally’s family involvement and of course the MC and this story was ended perfectly.

Falling Hard (Colorado High Country # 3)

By Pamela Clare

Synopsis

A Gold Star wife alone…

Ellie Meeks promised her pilot husband that if he was killed in combat, she would live her life to the fullest. Three years later, she is still alone, raising the twins he never met. She has no interest in dating or meeting men—until one snowy night when a stranger helps her get her sick kids safely home. That stranger turns out to be a former Army Ranger and a member of the elite Rocky Mountain Search & Rescue Team. He’s also tall, rugged… and irresistibly sexy. 

All it takes is one kiss…

Jesse Moretti came to Colorado to get Iraq out of his head, using the adrenaline of extreme sports and high-risk mountain rescues to keep his mind off the past. But getting involved with Ellie might be the riskiest thing he’s ever done. It’s not just their explosive chemistry. There’s something about Ellie that gets inside him, opening him to feelings he’s tried hard to ignore. 

When passion ignites…

Ellie feels alive in Jesse’s arms and happier than she ever thought she’d feel again. But their relationship comes at a price for him, and soon Ellie sees that she must help Jesse fight the demons of his past to protect the love of a lifetime—and save the heart of a hero.

Review

Ellie is a single mother to soon-to-be three-year-old twins (Daniel & Daisy) after her husband died in Iraq while she was pregnant.  She has a wonderful support system not only in her family, but in the small town where she lives.  I liked her a lot and thought her hesitations about dating again were realistic, though I did feel that her reaction to Jesse’s “secret” was a little irrational.  In fact, her reaction was the only part of the entire story that I didn’t like.

Jesse is an incredibly nice guy and I really enjoyed getting to know him.  He’s been living next door to Ellie for over two years and although they have never met, he knew about her husband and helped her out anonymously whenever he could.  He has saved many lives throughout his careers, but he focuses on the ones he couldn’t save, which affects him badly.  While he willingly jumps into frozen lakes without any hesitation, he hates the spotlight and doesn’t think of himself as a hero, which of course only makes him more likeable.

I have read all three books released in this series so far, and I have to say that this is the first time I’ve really gotten a feel for the small town.  When tragedy strikes, everyone in the community comes together to do and give whatever they can to help.  I don’t remember having that feeling in the first two books, but in this book that feeling was front and centre.

FALLING HARD is told in dual POVs, and quite often the POV would switch several times within a chapter.  While I did find that slightly annoying, I was grateful that the switch was marked by a symbol which made the change easily identifiable.  While FALLING HARD is part of a series, it can most definitely be read as a stand-alone.  The HEA is beautiful and sweet, but also achingly sad.  The final chapter took me the longest to read because I had to keep stopping to wipe my eyes.  Even re-reading it while I composed this review had me tearing up again.

FALLING HARD is the third book in the Colorado High Country series and is my favourite.  Any book that can draw out my emotions like this one did deserves the highest rating.

Colorado High Country Series

Shaken, Not Stirred (Last Call # 5)

By Sawyer Bennett

br-0202-shaken-not-stirred

Synopsis

She swore she would never fall to any man.
He took one look at her and vowed to bring her down.

Casey Markham is a man-eater in a rut. Swearing off relationships may keep her heart safe, but she’s beginning to question if her casual flings will ever leave her satisfied. She’s wondering if it’s finally time to let go of the past and stop letting history control her future.

Bad boy biker, Tenn Jennings can’t get Casey off his mind. A chance encounter with the beautiful blond has left its mark, and now he’s determined to prove her wrong about everything she thought she knew about men.

It’s safe to say… Casey Markham has met her match.

Review

SHAKEN, NOT STIRRED is the fifth and final book in the Last Call series and is about Casey (Hunter and Brody’s little sister) and Tenn (a new arrival in town).

After having her heart broken at the tender age of eighteen, Casey has sworn of relationships.  She avoids good, kind and honest men because those types have the potential to thaw the ice around her heart.  Instead, she sleeps with men exactly like her first boyfriend, because when she disposes of them and makes them feel worthless, she doesn’t feel worthless herself.  I liked her enough, but at times I found her a little immature and I didn’t like it when she played games, especially with Tenn.

I really liked Tenn.  He seemed like a cool and easygoing guy and I loved how much he loved his daughter, willing to move across the country to be closer to her.  However, for a man who hates his ex-wife because of the mind games she plays, I was surprised that he didn’t seem to have a problem with Casey’s games and that he would play them himself at times.

SHAKEN, NOT STIRRED is told in dual POVs and while it’s part of a series, it can be read as a stand-alone.  I thought I recognised Tenn’s name, but it wasn’t until he talked about being a cowboy that I realised he’s Woolf’s brother from The Wicked Horse series, which is a spin-off of this series.  Yes, I read the series out of order.  It also took me a while to realise that Kyle (Andrea’s brother) is the same Kyle from WICKED BOND, the undercover ATF agent that was killed.  Spoiler alert:  He wasn’t really killed, because his own book, FINDING KYLE, came out last month.

Last Call Series

Trick

By Laramie Briscoe

Synopsis

A forced sentence leads to a reckless passion…….

Hadley

When my husband walked out on me over a year ago, it devastated me. When the divorce papers came, it killed me. When we had to sell our house, it broke me.

But then he moved in with his new flavor of the month and told our daughter his new woman wasn’t into children. That pissed me off.

Now Riley feels abandoned, and I can’t make it better; no matter how hard I try. I’m desperate to help her adjust to the loss of a male figure in her life. The companion program that matches adults up with children who have loneliness and abandonment issues is my last hope.

The counselors tell me he’s doing community service hours, and I ask to sit in on his meetings with Riley. The minute I see him astride the matte black Harley, I know neither my nor Riley’s life will ever be the same again.

Trick

Community Service. Two words I should be thankful for, but I’m not. I resent the hours it’s away from building my business. The two previous kids I’d been paired up with didn’t work out because their mothers were more interested in getting in my bed. This next match with a little girl is my last hope. Unless this kid works out, I’m destined to serve time.

When they push her into the room wearing pink converse with a black dress, her crazy curls barely held back by the barrette in her hair, and studious glasses on her face, I can tell she’s scared – of new people, of change, of being pushed aside. Something inside of me breaks, and I want this girl to feel wanted again.

What I’m unprepared for is meeting her mom. The second our hands touch, there are fireworks, bright lights, and a picture of the future I could one day have. The future I’ve never allowed myself to wish for.

Community service becomes more than a chore, more than time I resent for being taken away from me. In the months that follow, I realize they’re just like me: they’ve been abandoned, left behind by the world, forgotten by those who should love them.

Thanks to the one last hope in both our lives – we found the light in the darkness we’d been searching for.

Review

Hadley is a single mother to her six year old daughter Riley, and has been for the past two years since her marriage ended.  She’s struggling to provide the basics for her daughter, but one thing Riley doesn’t lack is her mother’s love.  She has no desire to date, but that changes when she sees Trick for the first time.  Trick is a nice guy who made some bad decisions that saw him on the wrong side of the law.  As part of his community service, he’s entered into the Companion Care program and is matched up with Riley, a girl in need of a male figure in her life after being abandoned by her father.  I liked both Trick and Hadley, as well as Riley.  Together they make a nice family and it was nice to see how quickly and easily Trick fell in love with Riley and vice versa.

TRICK is told in dual POVs, is a stand-alone and comes with a nice HEA.  From memory, there’s no conflict between Trick and Hadley at all, and the only real test of their relationship came from an unlikely source.  I thought G, a customer of Trick’s, was going to cause problems considering his dark threats at the beginning, but he just faded into the background which left me wondering why he was even in the story in the first place.

I did like TRICK and I finished it pretty quickly because it easily held my attention.  That being said, I spotted some pretty big errors that I’m surprised weren’t picked up by the beta readers.  Hadley says receiving the divorce papers destroyed her, but later on she says she filed for divorce.  Riley says her mom is twenty-nine and her dad is forty-two, but later in the story Hadley says her ex-husband is fifteen years older. I also struggled with the timeline surrounding Trick and Hadley’s relationship and his community service hours.  Trick has nine hundred hours to do and they are together for about two months when his hours are completed.  At sixty days, that works out to fifteen hours of community service every day, which is not possible with him working and Riley being at school five days a week.  Without these errors, this would have been a 4❤️ read for sure, and maybe these will be fixed in the published version.

Healing a Heart

By Amy Lillard

Synopsis

The author of Loving a Lawman invites you back to the ranch…
 
As cowboys, the Langston brothers of Cattle Creek, Texas, know it’s easy to mend a fence. Mending a broken heart, however, takes time…
 
Rancher Jake Langston prides himself on being the sensible type. But five years after the loss of his wife left him to raise their daughter alone, he indulges in a one-night stand with a sexy stranger. He thought he’d never see the woman again. Four months later, though, she’s standing in his drive with a big surprise.

Bryn Talbot wants nothing from the hunky cowboy who got her pregnant, but her Southern nature demands she at least tell him about it. When Jake’s family persuades her to stay for a while, she’s soon won over by their charms—and by Jake. But with the losses the two of them have suffered in the past, neither is sure if they’re ready to take the leap to forever…

Review

Firstly I love the cover of this book, I just want to sit in that chair on that Texas ranch.

My favourite character of this whole book was Wesley, that girl captured my heart and to me was the intricate character to bring Jake and Bryn together.

This story flowed beautifully and jumped ahead at parts and I did not feel as if I missed out on where their relationship strengthened.

Jake’s mother’s story must continue into the next book as it was not resolved by the end.  I also have not read the first book of this series but we meet his brother and Jessie.

Now onto Jake, my only complaint is that we did not see him open up to Bryn about his hang ups until the 95% mark after she gives birth.  I really wanted him to open up to Bryn and I felt a bit deflated after the custody chapter with the lawyer, it did not feel resolved to me.

Overall a lovely romantic story that kept me turning the pages and gave me wonderful moments of love, family and new beginnings.

Max (Cold Fury # 6)

By Sawyer Bennett

br-max

Synopsis

The ice is a cold mistress. As the league’s most eligible goalie, Max Fournier has access to his fair share of willing puck bunnies, but right now he’s more interested in bringing home another championship than a one-night stand. A romantic at heart, Max believes in love; he’s just not great at relationships. So when he finally meets a nice girl who’s not blinded by his celebrity, he’s feeling the heat—and the pressure to save her from herself.

Between working two jobs and raising her sister’s kids, Julianne Bradley doesn’t have time for sports—or men. All she knows about Max is that he’s the sexiest customer to ever grace her gas-station counter. And he sees past her tired eyes and makes Jules yearn for things she can’t have: a glamorous fling, a passionate lover, and the time to enjoy both. Max makes her feel like Cinderella, even though Jules has enough baggage to crush a glass slipper. Luckily, he’s no prince—only a fierce competitor determined to win her heart.

Review

“Why are you such a good guy, Max?”
“It’s easy for the right girl.”

It’s quite possible that Max has become my favourite man in the Cold Fury series.  He’s not a man marred by some dark and haunting past.  He’s not a manwhore vowing to never fall in love.  He’s just a nice guy who wants to find a nice girl and spend the rest of his life with her.  He respects how hard-working Jules is, and while he doesn’t have a hero complex, he does want to make her life easier and help her to fulfil her dreams.  He’s not only a champion for Jules, but for her niece and nephews too.  He’s totally swoon worthy.

“I went back there to see you.”
“Why would you do that?”
“Pretty girl, I didn’t see a wedding ring, and I wanted to talk to you more.  It’s what happens when a guy is interested in a girl.”

Jules is a strong and independent woman, one who became the legal guardian to her sister’s three kids.  She’s struggling financially, works two jobs and doesn’t have much support, but she’s determined to give those kids a happy life.  While she doesn’t have a reason to doubt his intentions, she believes that Max is too good to be true and therefore struggles to let him in completely and pushes him away, which is the only fault I had with her.

MAX is a very easy and sweet read and has one of the coolest epilogues I’ve ever read.  I loved both Max and Jules and I thought they were a perfect match for each other.  MAX is told in dual POVs and while it’s part of a series, it can be read as a stand-alone.

Pursuit: Blood Bandits MC

By Cora Black

31644465

Synopsis

“Go to hell.”
“I’m already there, babe.”

Two years after his fiancée was shot and killed by crossfire during a skirmish involving his MC, Dominick Fiarelli has sworn off love. Women are just a means to an end – nothing more, nothing less. He planned on keeping it that way forever.

But then Kara showed up.

“He’s trying to take everything from me.”
“Over my dead body.”

Kara Vance just wants to raise her daughter in peace. But then her abusive ex-husband shows up at the diner where she works, spewing threats and laying his hands on her. It’s a flashback to the life she’s been trying desperately to flee. Just when she thinks the scumbag is going to beat her senseless, a man she’s never seen before swoops in to the rescue.

That’s when everything changed.

It started with a bang.

Dom hears a violent commotion from the back of the diner and goes to investigate. When he sees a slimy bastard in an expensive suit about to hit a defenseless waitress, he stops him in his tracks. The man utters a threat before leaving, but Dom couldn’t care less. He’s locked in on the girl. The fire between them builds and he knows they’re venturing into dangerous territory.

Kara feels it, too, but her life is fraught with danger. The last thing she needs is this dark, mysterious man adding more drama to the mess. She tries to push him away, but he sees right through her. Before she knows it, they’re kissing, holding, biting… and that’s just the beginning.

But her ex isn’t done with just yet. If Kara isn’t careful, the life she’s built may be gone in a flash.

“Screw the pursuit of happiness,” Dom told her. “The only thing I want is YOU.”

PURSUIT is a full-length, standalone romance novel with steamy hot sex, strong language, a happily every after ending, and NO CLIFFHANGERS. Contains dark and disturbing themes, and over-the-top sexiness that may be uncomfortable for some readers.

Perfect for fans of Sam Crescent, Jenika Snow, L Wilder, Sabrina Paige, Lauren Landish, Vanessa Waltz, Jordan Marie, and Nicole Snow.

Review

Firstly, love the cover of this book.

What immediately drew me into this story was Kara and her fierce love for her daughter Emma who whilst young in age was an extremely old soul, interesting how children pick up on things. Their relationship I loved reading about and how Dom integrates himself into that family dynamic. Their sex scenes were intense and off the charts hot – I was not disappointed.

This flowed well most of the time and did have odd moments. I found the ending scenes with Kara, her husband and Dom strange in that I mean you knew something major was going to happen but I grappled with Dom finding himself alone in that situation and thus being in danger. This story basically happens over a few weeks and is very intense but in no way really I would call it a total MC story as it takes place more in Kara’s world than Dom’s. Dom’s MC world really felt added in at parts and the two worlds did not mesh together well into the story. I would have connected more if Kara had perhaps had a bit of interaction with the MC club before they all race in to rescue her.

The MC basically comes into the story right at the suspenseful conclusion and then in the epilogue where it all gets tied up nicely. I must say I was pleasantly surprised that Kara gets to finish her dream of study and I thought that was really significant considering what her husband made her do when she was so young.

I would have loved the MC to have played more of a part with perhaps a few more escalated events to the thrilling conclusion to help the connection between the two worlds.

This is definitely a standalone with steamy sex scenes and a HEA.
