One by Jewel E. Ann

F*@k gravity, it’s time to fall in love with Jewel E. Ann and the magic she created with Lake and Cage. One of my top reads of 2016 BY FAR! Sweet, sexy, powerful, and inspiring. If I could add more adjectives without sounding like a true moron, I would.

One is labeled a standalone, however, to truly appreciate this story of love, recovery, and forward motion you MUST have read the Jack & Jill series beforehand. Fans of the previous books are in for a massive treat. I haven’t left their world in days. My mind keeps slipping back to Lake and Cage and the sheer brilliance of their tale. It’s an ode to the human spirit, what overcoming obstacles can be if you believe in yourself, and the ability to change and inspire your own thoughts of yourself and ability.

Is it a love story? Yes, but it’s so much more. I highlighted ‘til my kindle bled blue and I re-read till the words soaked into my reader’s soul.

We would be Cage and Lake.
 We would be unpredictable.
 We would be reckless.
 We would push the boundaries of sanity and give normalcy the middle finger

One amazing fall into a 5 star read J

From the cover…
Lake Jones is a cover girl for cutting-edge prosthetic legs, a binge-watcher of Netflix, known to spy on her neighbor through her door’s peephole, and fond of laser games with her hairless cat. She’s also a bit sexually-frustrated.

Until …

God bestows a breath of mercy upon her in the form of Minnesota’s NFL starting quarterback. But this gift is no stranger. Lake met Cage Monaghan three years earlier.

It was one day.
One moment.
One kiss that resurrected her dreams of finding love.

His dimpled smile distracts from his imperfections, which include: a love for country music, fishing, and a feline-hating girlfriend.

When life finally gives them their chance, it’s a humorous and heart-wrenching journey to find their place in the world.

"We would be Cage and Lake. We would be unpredictable. We would be reckless. We would give normality the middle finger.”

***This book is a standalone. However, it is HIGHLY recommended that any readers who have not, but may consider, reading the Jack & Jill Series, do so before reading this book. It contains spoilers to Jack & Jill.

Dragon in the Blood by Juliette Cross

Masterful and well-crafted, Dragon of the Blood is one of the most balanced works Juliette Cross has written to date.

A journey across the Provences proves to be filled with new dangers and discoveries within the Vale world. Learning more about this world is becoming a highlight as well as proving to be an almost ever-changing character of a landscape (I hope that makes sense). It keeps each new book fresh and inviting.

As for the characters themselves… assassin Valla must endure a tag-a-long partnership with one of the Nightwing security operative, Conn. Both are fierce and independent making the courtship of these two a fun exchange of banter and wit, making Dragon of the Blood engaging till the very end.

Just the right amount of action, suspense, romance, and intrigue.

While all seems quiet in Gladium Province, the Morgon Guard—the global justice force for the dragon hybrid race—knows their enemy is rebuilding its forces in the underground.

Valla Moonring, an assassin for an order of the Morgon Guard, is ordered to join an expedition through the Wastelands of Aria, a formidable, icy wilderness fraught with all manner of dangers, including outlaws, deadly weather, and big-game predators.

To her great distaste, she’s partnered with a Nightwing Security operative, Conn Rowanflame, a Morgon with the aggravating ability to get under her skin. While she takes her mission seriously, Conn’s confident charm throws her off balance, a dangerous place to be in conditions like these. Especially when cold nights require close contact.

Sensual attraction binds them ever closer, igniting a passion of unexpected force—soulfire. But when the hunters become the hunted, their bond could prove perilous. Even fatal…

Juliette lives in lush, moss-laden Louisiana where she lives with her husband, four kids, and black lab, Kona. Multi-published author of paranormal and urban fantasy romance, she loves reading and writing brooding characters, mysterious settings, persevering heroines, and dark, sexy heroes. From the moment she read JANE EYRE as a teenager, she fell in love with the Gothic romance. Even then, she not only longed to read more novels set in Gothic worlds, she wanted to create her own.

You can discover more of Juliette and her books on her website.

Cream of the Crop (Hudson Valley #2) by Alice Clayton

Give it up for my big girls, large ladies, and bodacious babes! For the beautiful woman who knows who she is, is comfortable in her own skin, and can strut her stuff in thigh high Chanel boots down a Manhattan sidewalk or a country lane. You wanna know what sexy really is? It’s anyone who owns it, anyone who commands a room and fills the air with confidence. Natalie Grayson is just that kind of gal. She is big in the world of advertising and she has a way of making her mark while making a pitch. All woman and proud of it.

Natalie Grayson also has an affinity for the creamy decadence that comes in the form of cheese. One of her favorites can be found at the farmer’s market, made by the powerful milk churning hands of Oscar Mendoza. Funny thing is, all that charisma and confidence Natalie has flies right out the window when she comes face to face with her purveyor of cheese. Who is this shy tongue tied girl who takes the cheese and scurries home?

When Natalie and Oscar finally come face to face, in the quaint town of Hudson Valley, it’s a hilarious sprint across a field of cows that ends with a breathtaking sexy romp in the hay.

I absolutely LOVE this series and dare I say, I love this even more than the first. Just having a heroine that is more of a today kind of woman and less of the overly sexualized size 2-6 typically described in romances is positively refreshing and much needed injection into the genre. Natalie wasn’t always so confident and finding out why and how she overcame is as triumphant as it is heartbreaking. Also, having a hero that knows exactly what he wants and makes no bones about it, is every Alpha lover’s dream come true.

It’s udder perfection. (pun intended)
Get it on AMAZON

Manhattan’s It Girl, Natalie Grayson, has it all: she’s a hot exec at a leading advertising firm, known industry-wide for her challenging and edgy campaigns. She’s got a large circle of friends, a family that loves her dearly, and her dance card is always full with handsome eligible bachelors. What else could a modern gal-about-town wish for? The answer, of course, is...cheese.

Natalie’s favorite part of each week is spending Saturday morning at the Union Square Farmer’s Market, where she indulges her love of all things triple cream. Her favorite booth also indulges her love of all things handsome. Oscar Mendoza, owner of the Bailey Falls Creamery and purveyor of the finest artisanal cheeses the Hudson Valley has to offer, is tall, dark, mysterious, and a bit oblivious. Or so she thinks. But that doesn’t stop Natalie from fantasizing about the size of his, ahem, milk can.

Romance is churning, passion is burning, and something incredible is rising to the top. Could it
