REVIEW: Sometimes you need a book that is a little slower. A little more involved. A little less 100 miles an hour to the HEA and then done. Susan Fox’s latest and the start of her Blue Moon Harbor series, Fly Away With Me, is such a book. Don’t get me wrong, there is plenty of action and an underlying mystery that keep readers turning pages; the overall pace is just slower. Perfect for a summer afternoon lazing by the pool (or in the air conditioning). Aaron and Eden are fully developed characters and the world surrounding them is unpredictable. Together they face challenges and heartache, but come out so much stronger. I really enjoyed spending time in this new world Fox has created. I can’t wait for the next installments of this series.

Love on the Cape is a sweet and sexy story about two people in desperate need of finding redemption from their pasts and too afraid to trust what they’re feeling in the present. It’s packed full of emotion from the first page to the last. Big, fat, ugly crying, tears of emotion. It could also have been that I hadn’t slept in 22 hours and was feeling a little emotional anyway, but whatever.
I loved the conflict between Ryker and Larkin – MK sets it up almost immediately and the reader is able to see where it’s going to go. Even knowing what their challenge is going to be there’s still enough tension, enough push and pull, to keep the reader engaged and eager to see where the characters will take it. There are great secondary characters and I can wait for them all to get their HEAs.
If you like sweet, contemporary romance with a just enough sizzle to make you your insides flutter, visit The Cape.
REVIEW: Jennifer Snow’s fun hockey series continues in Maybe This Summer. We all have masks we hide behind, such as it were. In the case of Owen McConnell it is in the form of the Avalanche mascot Bernie, a large, fluffy St. Bernard. Paige Adams, on the other hand, hides behind turtlenecks and scarves. Together they will see that letting their masks fall is the most healing of all. If anything, this book was too short. I wanted to see more of Paige and Owen’s relationship develop. I’m hopeful we will see more of them in future books to see how things are progressing.

Always a wingman . . .
Owen McConnell is used to being ignored. After all, it’s only when he appears as the Colorado Avalanche’s team mascot that he gets all the attention. When the costume is off, women tend to gravitate toward his famous hockey player friends. But after he meets lovely, damaged Paige Adams, he knows he can be the star player for her. She’s raising funds for the hospital burn unit, and Owen’s determined to help her out—and sweep her off her feet.
The burn unit has been near and dear to Paige’s heart ever since the doctors helped her after a vicious attack. Yet the scars—both emotional and physical—haven’t faded as much as she’d hoped. She’s closed herself off from relationships, and the thought of opening up is terrifying. But Owen’s sexy charm might be just the push Paige needs to start loving again.

Sometimes you have to hit rock bottom before you figure out what life is really meant to be. Such is the case for Agrippina “Pippa St. Amor” Turner. When her life unfairly implodes on national television she does what any self-respecting woman will do: she goes home. Home is Ghost Falls, Utah, her grandmother Phi, and Matt (though she doesn’t know it at the time). As Pippa tries to get her life back on track, Matt tries to become more than just “St. Matt” who gave up everything when his father died. Funny how they figure out that they can achieve both when they work together.
