Until Love Finds YouUntil Love Finds You (The Tavonesi series #10)

By Pamela Aares

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Age category: Adult

Release Date: September 9, 2017

Blurb:

Pamela Aares’ USA Today bestselling Tavonesi Series continues with another suspenseful, page-turning and heart-warming novel about the healing power of love.

Reclusive tech billionaire Evan Forbes finds himself lost and lonely in the secretive world he’s cloaked around himself. He may have changed the way the world communicates with his innovative, high-tech businesses, but the language of the heart has brought nothing but pain.

When Evan meets the vivacious heiress Coco Tavonesi on a garden tour, she fires a spark of desire he can’t resist. Pretending to be an ordinary computer geek, he conceals his true identity and accepts the thirty-dollar an hour job she offers, tracking down a hacker who’s stolen her prized nature photographs. After years of hiding his famous name and his own incredible wealth behind a disguise, has he met the woman worth revealing himself to? Can he risk his heart?

Coco doesn’t count on falling for the sexy techie, but when she playfully snaps a photo of Evan, his resulting anger triggers fears from her past. What does he have to hide? Is Evan the quirky, sweet geek he seems, or yet another fortune hunter using this chance to get close to her?

When Evan discovers that Coco is being hacked by a high-level genius, he’s determined to bring the criminal down. But the hacker accesses Coco’s photos of Evan and threatens blackmail and violence, and suddenly the secrets Coco and Evan have kept from one another endanger not only the love blooming between them, but their very lives.

Teach Your Heart By Tracey Alvarez (Review)

Teach Your Heart.jpg

Teach Your Heart (Far North #3)

by Tracey Alvarez

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Age category: Adult

Release Date: 30 November, 2016

Blurb:

Some lessons are harder to learn than others…

Doctor O-for-Awesome Owen Bennett is all about fixing broken things. Then the arrival of his orphaned nieces and nephew for twelve weeks causes his workaholic life to plummet into chaos. Hiring the beautiful but unpredictable Gracie Cooper as a live-in nanny might just get him out of a tight spot…or it could seduce him into a reckless affair.

After four years flitting around Europe, waitress/dog-walker/au-pair Gracie Cooper has returned home to New Zealand. Her plans to hang out with her big brother change when Owen offers a perfect solution to her crippling university debt. In spite of her sexy-stick-in-the-mud boss, she’ll spend fun days playing in Bounty Bay’s sand and surf with his cute charges. At summer’s end she’ll follow the sun overseas again.

Gracie and Owen’s opposites-attract connection is so unexpected and powerful that foundations are rocked. But some things aren’t easy to fix. Some past hurts can’t be run from forever. And the lessons they teach each other risk breaking their hearts.

Review of Teach Your Heart

I will admit I am a sucker for opposites attract tropes in stories. Tracey Alvarez’s Teach Your Heart had everything I wanted in a book. The free spirit of Gracie and the stubborn-as-nails Owen had me swooning from the beginning to the last page of the book.

I hadn’t read the other stories in this series, but seeing as how quickly I fell in love with both characters and even their flaws, I am definitely going to be checking out the other two novels prior to this one. Teach Your Heart leaves you with a sense of hope and love, as both characters do share some similarities, as much as they struggle to notice them, they also bring to the other a sense of deep and mutual satisfaction. As if one side completes the other. I look forward to reading more of Tracey Alvarez’s novels, and Teach Your Heart is only the beginning.

Rating: 5/5 Stars

Emily wakes up in an unknown place without any memory of how she got there.

She forces herself to take the time away from her stressful life in spite of the objection from her friends. The last thing she remembers is being at her high school reunion, and the pain that grips her heart when the guy who broke her heart ten years ago shows up looking annoyingly tempting.

Evan didn’t expect her to almost claw his face off at the reunion, but he was surprised at the way Emily reacts to his presence. He asks himself if he cared enough about his high school sweetheart to find out why she had turned into an angry person.

Follow Emily’s journey as she follows her heart to find the person she wants to be held captive by… forever.

Review of Hold Me Captive

 

The story is filled with a variety of characters, all of which made me laugh out loud and gasp over their behavior–which is a good thing, in my reading life. Emily is a workaholic, to put it mildly. She’s off to a meditation retreat, or more like forced into one…

But before she can go, she offers to help her friend work their high school reunion. In walks Evan, her long-lost love from high school, here to get her back. He takes her away from it all, quite literally too, since she gets drugged and the next thing she remembers is waking up inside his car. Evan is there to make amends for his past, and also helping her to work out who would want to harm her and the ones she’s loved.

It seems that Emily is her own worst enemy, and everyone can see this but her. P.G. Van leaves the reader turning the pages quicker and quicker, at times just to see if Emily has come to her senses yet. The love story flickers from anger and bitterness, but soon a fire grows within each of them. Finally, that fire turns into more than just passion, but a hope for the future between the two. But first, the two need to figure out who is behind the life-threatening attacks on Emily. In the end, Evan plays the hero role like a trained champ, making ‘Hold Me Captive Forever’ one that I’ll treasure forever.

Fated Hope (The Fated Saga #3)

by Sariah Skye

Genre: Fantasy

Age category: Adult

Release Date: August 6, 2017

Blurb:

Leorah James grew up in Anarach—a kingdom of dragon-shifters—friendless, and considered useless, with no magic. All because of age-old ideas, and fear towards what they didn’t understand.

Now, she’s back in Anarach, in a position she never thought possible: a queen, bonded to the gorgeous Maxxus, with extraordinary magic; ruling over the kingdom that once shunned her very existence. Now, Leorah and Maxxus have to bring the kingdoms together to try and strengthen everyone against the mysterious foe up against them.

The very thing that set her apart from her kingdom could be the very thing to save them all, if only they quell their fear and let her.

Some might consider Leorah a hero, given everything she’s been through and everything that stands before her. But, is she heroic enough to give everyone hope?
