Jennifer’s review of Run by Jennifer Vester

Title: Run (Lakefield Book 1)

Author: Jennifer Vester

Genre: romance, contemporary romance, romantic suspense
Stars: 5πŸ›πŸ›πŸ›πŸ›πŸ›
I really enjoyed this book. Liv was finally living her life with her best friend Julia after a horrible and traumatic college relationship. She makes a stop to eat dinner and sees Aiden sitting in a business meeting at the table across from her. The attraction is instant for both. Of course Liv decides to run from it. Aiden chases her down to return her forgotten phone. And so the hilarious and suspenseful story starts. Β Liv and Aiden were perfect. They were absolutely perfect for each other. Aiden is take charge and in control of every aspect of his life. Liv is a book worm, foul mothed, crazy quirky lady. She was always pushing his limits and the banter back and forth is hilarious. I had quite a few laugh out loud moments. The very real danger Liv was in from her stalker had me turning pages to see what would happen next. The story was very well written and the side characters were amazing and so funny at time. I finished this story very quickly. I couldn’t put it down Β (even while at work)! Definitely 5 stars and I can’t wait to start on Julia’s book!

Book: Love Revealed
Author: J.C. Santo
Series: Navy Love #4
Genre: Military Romance, M/M
Release Date: February 27, 2017
Stars: 4.5

Ms. Santo is a new author to me and this is the fourth book in the series and I’m going to have to go back and purchase 1-3!! I was that impressed with her. This story flowed really well and I really love Marshall and Preston.

Marshall has been accepted as being gay by his family and friends. He is the gay best friend to the girls in his group which are married to the military men in his life. Preston on the other hand did not get accepted by his family with the exception of his younger sister. They have ridiculed him and basically disowned him from the family because of his sexuality. Now he has hangups being with men publicly, especially since he’s in the Navy.

Marshall and Preston met on a dating app, it was just supposed to be a one night thing but it turned out to be an almost 2 year affair. That’s when Marshall gave Preston an ultimatum- meet his friends as his boyfriend. Preston was very fearful of getting rejected by Marshall’s friends and family because of his own experience. Falling in love and expressing that are two totally different things. Will Preston take the leap of faith with Marshall and come all the way out of the closet?

This is not the first book I’ve read by Ms. Michaels, but this is the first book I’ve read in the series. I absolutely loved it!!! She it’s such a good writer with relatable characters.

Jasmine King loved her job as personal security in her brothers’ firm.

She gets off an assignment and is rushed right back into guarding a famous country singer. From the instant she lays eyes on him sexual chemistry crackles.

His management team hires Jasmine’s firm to help protect the country singer from a stalker/psychopath. Chad doesn’t know how far the stalker has gone, he’s being framed for murder. The only thing the murder victims have in common is Chad. Will the bad boy of country music be able to be saved from his self destructive path he is on? Will Jasmine and the Guardians be able to prove Chad’s innocence?

I love this book so much I’m going to buy the entire series!!! Way to go Ms. Michaels!

Ashley’s Review of Her Domiate Seal by Caitlyn O’Leary

img_9129

Ashley’s 4-πŸ›πŸ›πŸ›πŸ› Review
Book: Her Dominate Seal
Author: Caitlyn O’Leary
Series: Midnight Delta #9
Genre: Military Romance, Action and Adventure
Release Date: January 30, 2017
Stars: 4

This is the first book I’ve read by Ms. O’Leary and I can’t wait to read more. This book was so good I am going to have to get the other 8 in the Midnight Delta series.

Drake Avery is part of the Midnight Delta Navy SEALs team. When he was framed for assault in Tennessee the judge gave him an option of enlisting, he took the olive branch the judge handed him and never looked back. He still kept in touch with his six younger sisters via Skype and emails and sent a portion of his paychecks to them every month. When Drake’s father gets out of jail early and goes after his younger sister Piper he flies from California back to Tennessee even though he was told by the police to never set foot in his hometown again.

Karen Eastman is one of Piper’s teachers and her mentor. When Drake’s father sends some goons after Karen and Drake barely makes it there in time he insists on Karen coming to stay with him and his family. His alpha male dominate personality comes out to play in all aspects of their interactions.

I love the interaction between Drake and his sisters. They don’t take any of his sh*t and they give as good as they get, especially Eva (I really hope she gets her own book). And you can’t forget his comradery with his teammates. I highly recommend this book for anyone who likes military romance or romantic suspense.
