This is a new author to me and I absolutely love her writing. She takes serious topics, such as domestic violence, and discusses them sensitively.

Jasmine applies for the assistant job when her husband loses his job and forces her to work. Little did she know it was an assistant job at a strip club. Cutter just can’t get his mind off his little assistant, she’s beautiful to him in her own way but a lot skittish.

There are a lot of problems for them to overcome- Jasmine is so programmed to follow instructions she can’t function without directions from Cutter. But Cutter is so patient with Jasmine. Can Jasmine overcome her abuse and learn to love again?

Ms. Noelle is a fabulous author and I can’t wait for what she puts out next. I wish I could rate this book higher than 5 stars.

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.

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


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.
