Take Me to the Lake by Kaci Rose

3.5 STARS

Release Date: September 20, 2022

SYNOPSIS: Someone is watching me. Luckily my mountain man is watching over me.
 
Hope: I didn’t think they would find me here. I moved to the small town of Whiskey River three months ago, hoping I would finally be safe from my past. For the first time in a long time, I feel like I can breathe easier. Then I meet the mountain man who makes my breath quicken. And my heart race. He’s my protector – safe in his strong arms. But my past is coming for me… and he might end up paying the price.
 
Cash: The tracks along the treeline were my first clue. I might not have experience with women, but I know my way around the woods. And Hope is not safe living out here alone. And I’m pretty sure that’s my fault. Her stalker knows I have money, and that I’ll pay any price to keep the woman I love safe from harm. But what her stalker doesn’t know is that I plan on making them pay instead.


Take Me to the Lake is Book 3 in the Mountain Men of Whiskey River Series!


REVIEW: First of all, can we discuss this cover?! Yes, please, take me to the lake sir. I have liked the vibe of the covers on this series, but this one is by far my favorite–surprising with no abs, I know! Anyway, there is an on-going theme in this series of men embody some very masculine traits, yet wouldn’t meet all the expectations set by society of a man. It’s the perfect juxtaposition to make an intriguing male character that you need to know all about. I love that the men are protective of the women they meet. I love that the romantic suspense side pulls you in, and that the crazy/idiotic ex’s are shown whose boss. I feel like I kind of know what I’m getting with these books, and that is perfect for my mood at times. I hope you enjoy these characters as I did!

Shattered Sea by Catherine Cowles

5 Stars!

Release Date: September 13, 2022

Synopsis: I’ve known every kind of pain. Of the heart. Of the body. Of the soul. All I want now is the freedom that comes from making my art.

The last thing I expected was Hollywood royalty to waltz into my gallery in a small town in the middle of nowhere and see me.

A man like Boden Cavanaugh shouldn’t understand me. Shouldn’t be able to soothe my most ragged edges. Even worse, he makes me want the one thing I can’t have. Him.

All it takes is one spark, and friendship catches flame. But as our attraction burns bright, there are forces desperate to send us back into the darkness. And they’ve already killed before…


Shattered Sea, a sexy, suspenseful, small town romance from USA Today bestselling author Catherine Cowles, is out now!

He was the last person she expected to fall for…


Review: Once again Catherine Cowles has me staying up way past my bedtime, because I have to know what happens in one of her stories. Seriously, I could not put this one down once I started it. I absolutely adore the connection between Boden & Laiken, their back stories, and how they connected through the pain and loss that they’ve endured. I enjoyed seeing them get to know each other, become friends, and watching their relationship grow into more. Catherine Cowles is one of the only authors that can get me to not only read, but actually love a slow burn. The way she pairs the slow burn with romantic suspense makes me so invested in the story as a whole. Not to mention, her characters are so amazing that I’m also fully invested in the characters themselves. Something I find fascinating, is that there’s a lot going on in this book, and yet somehow, she makes it not seem so over the top, but instead kind of realistic.

This whole series has been absolutely amazing and I have been dying for the next book. Shiloh has been a huge presence in all of the series, but also a complete mystery at the same time. I’m really looking forward to getting her story. What I’ve been most curious about is how Catherine Cowles has set up her story with Ramsey who has been even more mysterious than Shiloh. Although, we finally get a little look at Ramsey in this book, and I am absolutely in love! I cannot wait to learn more about him as a character. There’s just something about the way Catherine Cowles writes her characters that has me absolutely 100% in and needing to know what happens to them in every single book. It is so fun seeing the group of friends and family from previous books in the present book, it just adds so much to the reading experience overall. I love this series and I cannot recommend it enough! The countdown is on to Fractured Sky coming October 25th!!

Thank you to Catherine Cowles and Social Butterfly PR for the ARC in exchange for an honest review.

The way Boden’s muscles tightened told me the little he’d shared was only the tip of the iceberg. That tension called to me, and I reached out, kneading the flesh along his shoulders. His head fell to my own shoulder, and he sighed. “I’ll only let you do that forever.”

I chuckled. “I do have the magic touch.”

“You could be making millions with those hands.”

“I only use them on very special recipients. They aren’t for sale.”

Boden straightened, but as he did, he came closer. Our faces were close. Lips just a breath away. The urge to lean forward, to know what he felt like, tasted like, was strong. Boden’s hand skated up my arm to my neck to tangle in my hair.
I knew that Boden Cavanaugh was more than dangerous. But like a moth to a flame, I kept getting closer.

Be With Me by Samantha Young

4.5 STARS

Release Date: July 11, 2022

SYNOPSIS: It was the friends-with-benefits proposition he never saw coming… While Arran Adair might have followed the call of wanderlust in his younger years, it isn’t the reason he stayed away from Ardnoch. Home now, desperate to put the sins of his past behind him, and rebuild his life in the Scottish Highlands, Arran could never have predicted Eredine Willows. The Ardnoch Estate Pilates instructor is a complicated mystery and one Arran can’t help but want to solve. Eredine has spent the last eight years hiding in Scotland and building walls between her and the people she cares about. Arran is the first Adair who doesn’t treat her as if she’s fragile and demands a genuine friendship. Yet, the attraction sizzling between them is undeniable. So when she realizes she trusts him, Eredine surprises them both by offering Arran one night of no-strings passion. Arran knows one night will inevitably lead to a desire for more and he’s willing to stay by Eredine’s side for as long as it takes to convince her there’s something real between them. However, just when Arran thinks they might build a future together, Eredine’s past returns to stalk her. And Arran won’t just have to battle her demons to keep them together. He’ll need to battle his own.


REVIEW: Oh this one was good! I love a man that is all in when it comes to the woman they want to be with. Eredine has major hold-ups and for good reason, but man did I want her to figure her issues out. Arran is total book boyfriend material. AND THAT CHEMISTRY!!! Seriously, when we finally get the steamy scene, I didn’t know how Ery held anything back from Arran after that. It was so interesting finally learning why he stayed away from the family, and seeing the impact this event had on him. There were times I didn’t love how they handled things, but in a way that made the story more realistic. I kind of figures some of the mystery out, but with the way Samantha Young writes, that doesn’t take away from the storyline!!

Hidden Waters by Catherine Cowles

5 Stars!

Release Date: June 21, 2022

Synopsis: My family tried to break me. But, somehow, I made it out alive, even though the wounds from that survival are forever carved into my bones. Now, my only wish is for…normal. To know what it’s like to have friends, a job, a home. The last thing I want is for my new roommate to see the scars I’m so desperate to keep hidden, especially not the ruggedly handsome man who steals my breath and sends my heart into overdrive. But something tells me that Beckett has demons, too. I see it in the shadows haunting his gorgeous eyes and the way he looks at me with gentle understanding. As our unlikely friendship becomes so much more, forces from my life slink out of the shadows. And we could both lose everything we’ve fought so hard for—down to our very last breaths…


“Everything amazing about a small town romance…family, secrets, old wounds, unforgettable connections, plus the sweetest love story that had my heart soaring. An absolute must read! Addie and Beckett were magic together!”–A.L. Jackson New York Times Bestselling Author


Review: This series is wonderful. I’ve been so curious about Addie and her father after seeing them in the previous books. Everything we learn from the beginning of the series about Addie’s horrible childhood and family made me really invested in Addie’s HEA. I also love how Addie and Beckett fit together. They’ve both experienced things that have impacted the way they see the world, yet those characteristics they’ve picked up seem to connect them, rather than divide them. The chemistry and connection between Beckett and Addie was just so heartwarming. I like the progression of them becoming closer and handling all of the bad things that were happening. These two were just meant to be. Seeing Addie’s growth throughout this book, as well and how she interacts with all the different characters, was so amazing. Addie’s interactions with Laiken made me so curious about her as a character. Luckily, the next book Shattered Sea, is Laiken’s book! I’m really excited to see where the series goes, but I am ridiculously excited for the last book, Fractured Sky. The tragedy that brought all these people together was that Everly’s father kidnapped Shiloh when they were children. There has been hints dropped about who Shiloh‘s love interest will be, and I cannot wait to see this play out! Catherine Cowles always does a wonderful job writing romantic suspense. Every time I read a series by her, I think there is no way she can top the one I’m currently reading, and yet she continues to do so. I’m counting down the days until September and October when we get these last two books. I would 100% recommend this book in the series to anyone who loves romantic suspense.

Always You by Samantha Young

5 STARS

Release Date: April 26, 2022

SYNOPSIS: Arrochar Adair has loved her brother’s ex-bodyguard and best friend, Mac Galbraith, for years. Once upon a time, she was too young for him, but now that she’s a mature woman in her thirties, Arro can see no issue with their difference in age. Yet something deeper, a problem much more difficult to surmount, is keeping them apart. Mac Galbraith remembers clearly the night Arro became everything to him, no longer just his best friend and boss’s younger sister. However, having made many mistakes over the years, there is one mistake Mac is determined not to make: to believe that he is worthy of Arrochar Adair. Allowing them to grow closer during his daughter, Robyn’s, return has proven his undoing. And when Arro forces the subject of their relationship, his response pushes her away. He just never meant for it to destroy them completely. Devastated by Mac’s final rejection, Arro is determined to move on without him in her life, though he seems intent on staying put. And when the Adair family face a new threat, one that may have ties to Mac’s past, Arro can’t seem to be rid of the man. In fact, Mac will do anything to protect her. But with so much hurt between them, will Arro let Mac close enough to guard her from their enemy… before it’s too late?


Always You is Book 3 in the Adair Family Series!


REVIEW: THIS SERIES! I’m absolutely in love with this series. I actually re-read book one, Here With Me, after reading book 2, There With You, just so I could be prepared for this one. I have been dying for Mac and Arro’s story since we caught glimpses of them and their connection in book one. Mac is such a wonderful character. Seeing him rebuild his relationship with Robyn in book one, and his support of Robyn and Reagan in book two, made me really interested in him as a male character. It was great to see his background, and get to know his hangups that were stopping him and Arro from being together. Arro has also been a great character throughout this series, and getting to know her better and seeing her love for Mac was really heartwarming. These two have definitely been on a heartbreaking journey that was rarely easy throughout this whole book, but it made me that much more happy for them at the end. The romantic suspense was a lot in this one, but honestly the relationship between Mac and Arro stole the show! The Adair family just keeps growing, and they’re some of my favorites as they are ridiculously supportive of one another. It’s really the merging of two families so far, which seems weird, but it’s also so amazing. I think that’s one of the things I love about this whole series, that everything’s a little out of the ordinary. There’s the romantic suspense aspect that adds to the storylines, but also the character connections are not normal in the best way.

I’m a little worried for the next book, only because of seeing the two brothers interactions with Eredine. I’m already leaning towards one over the other, and I really hope it works out that way. Can you tell I’m not a love triangle fan? Haha. I’m very interested to see what happens with the rest of the series in general, and I cannot wait to read them!
