Weather The Storm by LK Farlow

**Review at the bottom

Title: Weather the Storm
Series: The Southern Roots Series
Author: LK Farlow
Genre: NA/Contemporary Romance
Release Date: April 26, 2018


Allyson – “I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again.. Kate’s books just keep getting better! This is her best book yet and I’m cannot wait to get more from her!”


Dani Fuselier – “I’m blown away by her talent and want everyone to read this amazing story.”


Joy Novel Thoughts – “Weather the Storm is L.K. Farlow’s best work yet! Simon and Magnolia stole my heart from the first page and never let go!”


Magnolia Ellington is all too aware that dangerous things can come in shiny packages. Her husband made sure to teach her that.

Desperate to escape his wrath—and his fists—she flees in the dark of night. Seeking safety and shelter with the only family she has left, Magnolia finds herself in the sleepy, Southern town of Dogwood—and in the arms of Simon McAllister.

Simon has always been more of a thinker than a doer. That changes the minute he meets shy and mysterious Magnolia. She has him rushing into action, ready and willing to do whatever it takes to earn her trust.

Slowly, with his steadfast determination and kind heart, Simon brings Magnolia out of her shell. But just as things start heating up between the two of them, the darkness of Magnolia’s past resurfaces, threatening to rip apart everything they’ve worked so hard for.

With their future hanging in the balance, Simon fears he’s losing Magnolia. Now, he must convince her that, together, they can weather the storm.
I jolt awake, momentarily disoriented by the rhythmic beeping coming from my right. Beep. Beep. Beep. Again and again, the sound causes my temples to throb. Even though my eyes are still pinched closed, I know this is not my room, and I am not in my bed. Without warning, the events that led me here flash through my mind: hitting Simon’s truck and the subsequent ambulance ride. I remember the CT scan, and being given pain medication. I must have fallen asleep shortly after that. 

I inhale deeply, trying to get my bearings, and cringe at the smell of antiseptic hanging in the air. God, I hate hospitals. 

Slowly, I try to blink my eyes open, only to immediately close them again. Whimpering at the brightness of the room, I sink farther into the small, firm mattress before steeling my resolve to try again. 

I peel one lid open and hold it, adjusting, before peeling the other open as well. “So bright,” I whine to myself, squinting up at the light above me. My head feels like an entire drumline has taken it as their practice space; the thrumming and pounding is incessant. 

With all the strength I can muster, I roll my head to face the far wall of the small hospital room, only to startle at the sight of the most gorgeous man I’ve ever laid eyes on sleeping in the chair in the corner, his light-brown hair messy, his chiseled jaw covered in stubble. “S-Simon?” I whisper, more to myself than to him. 

All the same, he jolts like someone took a live wire to his skin. “You’re up?” He lunges from the chair toward me, gently taking my hand in his, scanning my body before bringing his deep-blue eyes to mine. “Are you—fuck, you have no idea how happy I am to see those baby-blue eyes right now. Let me call for your doctor.” 

He starts to withdraw his hand from mine, and I let out the most pathetic whimper, halting him. “Don’t go,” I beg. 

“Not going anywhere. Just gonna hit the call button,” he assures me, leaving me feeling foolish, even though that wasn’t his intention.
LK Farlow (A.K.A Kate) is a small town girl with a love for words. She’s been writing stories and poems for as long she can remember. A Southern girl through and through, Kate resides in beautiful, sunny LA—that’s Lower Alabama, y’all—with her amazing husband and three wonderful children. When she’s not writing, you can find her snuggled up on the couch watching nature documentaries while she crochets or with her nose in a book. All Kate really wants in this life is her family happy, strong coffee, a good book and more Happily Ever After’s.

blog_review

Magnolia’s past has shaped her into who she is today…which you can fully understand and yet you cry and feel sad because of what she has gone through, yet we can see her strength and determination to make things better. And our first “meeting” her in this story is just a grand entrance. You also see early how much Simon cares about her. But I feel like you learn how much he cares about everyone in his life. But the feelings for Magnolia run just a “tad” deeper.

This is told in dual POV and I love that so much. As we get through this series I feel like the writing is just getting better. The attention to detail is so great and you really can feel the emotions of these characters. The darkness that haunts Magnolia is one that you can feel and can literally put yourself into her shoes. The “flashbacks” also give you a good idea of what she went through. Simon is the light, the good guy who wants to help her however he can.

With them you also have the cast we have grown to love throughout this series and while I feel this can be a standalone you don’t want to miss the other books.

Paradise Found by Sarah O’Rourke – Review

pARADISE FOUND BANNER

button-synopsis

Samantha “The Body” Dixon had once been a famous runway model who’d walked every catwalk from Paris to Milan and back again. When her career abruptly comes to a screeching halt, this leggy blonde sets out to prove she’s got a whole lot more to offer than just a pretty face and killer rack – especially when fate lands her back on her former fiancé’s radar.

Benjamin Atkins might have once been the most in demand photographer in the fashion industry, but times have changed, and he’d learned the hard way to value substance over style. Now, he’s built a new life doing what he loves in the beautiful town of Paradise, Tennessee. That is, until the woman he could never forget struts back into his life.

When these two ex-lovers reconnect after a bitter break-up, can they overcome their heartbreak and find a way back to their own personal paradise found?

Paradise Found Teaser She Wanted Him

button-excerpt

Ben shrugged negligently. “Can’t help it. It’s a really great ass. Always has been,” he complimented her easily as he eyed her body appreciatively.

It ought to be, Sami thought wryly as her body heated under the weight of his stare. She’d certainly worked hard enough to maintain it over the years. For all the good it had done her, she thought bitterly. Even after all the dieting and exercising, she’d still lost her modeling contract to a younger, shinier version of herself. Of course, that wasn’t Ben’s fault and being a bitch to him now wouldn’t get her job back. “Thanks,” she muttered, “It’s not quite as perky as it once was, but I try to keep it in shape.

“Trust me, babe, your ass is as gorgeous as it ever was,” Ben assured her with a playful wink.

God, was she imagining things or was he actually flirting with her? Mentally giving herself a sound slap on the back of her head, Sami knew she couldn’t let her thoughts wander in that direction. She needed to cut this painfully familiar banter off now. “That doesn’t answer my other question, Ben . Why are you following me?” she questioned impatiently as she stopped in the middle of the sidewalk and turned to face him.

“I’m following you because I think you and I have some things to discuss,” he answered evenly. “In fact, we’re long overdue on having a chat, don’t you? It’s time we hash some things out between us.”

Automatically shaking her head, Sami backed up a step, wholly unprepared to go down that road with Ben. “Uh, I don’t think that’s a good idea, Ben. I think we said everything we had to say to each other three years ago, didn’t we?” she asked before turning and resuming her walk down the street.

button-review
Second chances do exist even if it is several years later.  Sami is SO SO stubborn and I just love her so.  She did what she thought was right to let Ben be happy.  Ben is VERY alpha male and you can’t help but love him also.  I don’t necessarily love how he got her to talk to him but at the same time her stubbornness was not going to let things happen easily.
This is told in dual POV and yet most of it is really just the two of them talking, etc…  In a way I wish we had more interactions with others…but this really is a book about forgiveness, second chances, true love and fighting for what you want.  Second chances don’t come around every day and neither Ben nor Sami would have guessed it was possible either and yet their love never faded even when apart.

One Last Time by Corinne Michaels
Release Date: February 26th, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance

OLT_FrontCover

From New York Times bestselling author, Corinne Michaels, comes a new heartwarming standalone romance.

I’m getting really good at cutting my losses.

First, the husband. Divorcing him was the best decision I ever made. But between single-parenting and job-hunting, I can’t catch my breath. When a celebrity blogging position falls into my lap, I’m determined to succeed.

That is, until I get my first assignment and actually see Noah Frazier for the first time . . . practically naked and dripping wet. My heart races and I forget how to form complete sentences. His chiseled abs, irresistible smirk, and crystal blue eyes are too perfect to be real. So, what do I do? Get drunk and humiliate myself, of course.

I’m ready to forget the awkward night, yet Noah has no intention of allowing me to move on. Instead, he arranges for me to write a feature on him, ensuring a lot more time together. One embarrassing moment after another, one kiss after another, and before I can stop myself, I realize—I’m falling in love with him.

But when the unthinkable happens, can I even blame him for cutting his losses?

What I wouldn’t give for just one last time . . .

Excerpt:

Before I can make a move either way, the glass door slides open and Noah walks through the threshold.

My legs start to quiver as his eyes meet mine. All I can think about is how I’d like to climb him like a tree and shake his coconuts. I thought he was hot in the photo, then he was better through the window, but up close, he’s otherworldly.

“Hi.” Noah’s throaty voice floats around me. “You must be Kristin.”

Instead of speaking, I stand here with my mouth hanging open. Some small sounds that could be words escape, but they aren’t coherent.

Kill me now.

“Noah, this is my best friend, Kristin. Who we told you about.” Heather elbows me.

“Yes. Me. Hi. Kristin. I. You. Hi.”

Smooth. Someone should video this because I’m sure it’s highly entertaining.

“Right.” Noah flashes a blinding smile. “I hear you’re a reporter?”

Okay, Kristin, you have to speak in more than one-word increments or grunting noises.

I grab Heather’s glass she just poured and hope it’ll act as a talisman. “Yes, for a small blog, but I’m that. A reporter. For a blog. I write.”

And a bumbling idiot.

Noah’s green eyes are filled with humor. He moves a little closer and places his hand on top of mine. “Eli filled me in a little. I’m happy I came.”

I’m pretty sure I just came. At least we’re all coming.

“Me, too.”

His lips turn up as his eyes rake my body. “See you out there.” He winks and walks back out.

My ovaries have officially disintegrated.

I turn back to Heather, who bursts out into a fit of laughter. “Oh, that was epic. You all said I was starstruck when I met Eli? You should’ve seen that!” Heather continues to laugh at my expense. “Yes. Me. Um. Blog. Er—” She mocks.

“Shut up.” I laugh—because, really, what else can I do—and bump her hip before moving around the bar and grabbing a glass. “Now, pour me a shot before I drink straight from the bottle.”

There’s only one way to get through tonight.

Alcohol.

Lots of Alcohol.

Review:

This book starts with so much pain that I couldn’t help but cry as I was reading it. Kristin didn’t have things easy and after 14 years of marriage and 2 kids she had to start over. I loved nothing more then seeing her come out of a shell as we read, her personality sure grows and with that so did my love for her character. Unfortunately what Kris went through is pretty common and you really do lose yourself in the process, and it is a cycle you get stuck in. Getting out is the hardest thing and yet the best. Kristin wouldn’t get through it all without her 3 best friends and her 2 amazing kids. I loved all of their interactions together. Her and her friends are a family and never once does their love for each other waver.

Noah, he is such an amazing guy and while Kristin sees him as nearly perfect, I love that he does mess up….that we see that he is “normal” despite being a famous actor. He is instantly taken with Kristen and I love how he is with her. He never forces anything and goes at her pace, and we have to understand why she is scared to start a new relationship especially since the one with Scott was so recent in ending.

I loved the major drama that happened but I honestly wish we had more come from it in terms of Noah and Kristin. Overall, this book was such a great read and shows you that love from a good person can bring out the best in you. You can’t help when you fall and you have to hope that they catch you when it happens.

The author does a great job of doing dual POV and making you really fall for both of these characters as individuals as well as they as a couple. She can manage you make you cry and laugh within these pages and make you feel everything that they feel. I could feel the devastation Kristin felt and I felt her happiness as well, not all authors can pull it off but this one does it so well.

Reckless by Lex Martin

**Review at the bottom

Title: Reckless
Author: Lex Martin
Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance
 Release Date: February 20, 2018
Blurb
Tori…
For the record, I’m
not going to hook up with my boss.
I’m a lot of
things—a screwup, a basket case, a flunky. But when I take a nanny job to be
near my pregnant sister, I swear to myself I’ll walk the straight and narrow,
which means I cannot fall for my insanely hot boss.
I don’t want to be
tempted by that rugged rancher. By his chiseled muscles or southern charm or
the way he snuggles his kids at bedtime. Ethan Carter won’t get the key to my
heart, no matter how much I want him. 
Ethan…
Between us, she’s
the last thing I need as I finalize my hellish divorce. 
What sane man trying
to rebuild his life wants a hot nanny with long, sexy hair, curves for miles,
and a smart mouth? A perfectly kissable, pouty mouth that I shouldn’t notice.
My focus is on my
kids and my ranch, not the insufferable siren who sleeps in the room next to
mine. It doesn’t matter that she wins over my kids in a heartbeat or runs my
life better than I do. Tori Duran is the one woman I can’t have and shouldn’t
want, no matter how much I crave her.

Review

I didn’t know this was book 2 in the series when I decided to read it, but I didn’t feel like I was missing anything.  (But I will go back and read book 1.)  Ethan is rough around the edges at times but he has a lot on his plate and he is trying to do everything at once.  But man is he one hot man, single father of 2, cowboy, etc….who wouldn’t want him.  Tori is sure sassy and I love that about her.

A heartbreak sure turned Tori’s world upside down and yet she gets a new spark as soon as she meets Ethan.  Their “banter” that first day gave her that spark.  And she was so funny with her I’d never sleep with you.  Ethan is trying to get his divorce finalized…but of course you need some drama there with that.

I LOVED Ethan’s kids, Mila and Cody, his brother Logan and I loved her sister Kat and Brody.  They add such a great dynamic to the story.  I loved the bond Tori instantly had with the two kids.  Logan loved getting in the middle of things, and he always was fun and outspoken.

This book did a great job of them taking things slow, Tori and Ethan building up that friendship first.  While things were not always easy between them the chemistry was off the charts.  Without giving anything away, Tori and the spider is totally me…. so that had me cracking up and freaking out with her all at once.

Told in dual POV the author did a great job giving both of these characters voices and loving personalities.  You feel the depth of their feelings and also their fear.  And they both have this deep love for others and it really comes across the pages.

Review:

This book is a great example of showing that sometimes two people are better then one.  Lara had a knack for running away, especially from Mark to try to keep him safe…and yet, he was never going to let her go.  Time has passed since Under The Lights and yet, we see how much their love is still there and burning stronger then ever.  Mark really is her knight in shining armor and she is his Queen.  Their love is so fierce that nothing will ever stop those feelings.

This is the quest for revenge, and trying to right wrongs, and yet, we see this pure and in a way innocent love that Mark and Lara share.  Every character in this book is so well written and you can feel for them all even if you don’t agree with what they are doing.  Molly and Ronald are some great characters and as always give us additional insight.

This is written in dual POV which is my favorite and it does not disappoint.  This is how you know how much Mark and Lara mean to each other.  I would call this a dark book and yet their love is so bright it in a way overpowers the dark.  The author just sucks you into this world of revenge and love and redemption.

Synopsis:

Technically, you aren’t supposed to fall in love with your best friend’s girl.

When I was nineteen years old, I was faced with a choice that changed my life.

Keep the safety of what I already knew or risk losing everything with the young, hotheaded soldier who stole my heart.

I chose the wrong man, and for seventeen years, I paid in tears, blood, and shattered dreams for that decision.

Now, there’s a man in my house, holding a gun to my head on the order of my ex-husband—given from his prison cell.

That hotheaded soldier I was too afraid to choose? He’s now a six-foot-three wall of muscle who works at the country’s most premier bodyguard agency. I’ve always wanted him, but now, I’ve never needed him more.

It’s the call I’m terrified to make.

I’m sure he still hates me… Even though I’ve never stopped loving him.

Review:

This is book 2 in the series, yet my first book by his author. I never would have known it was the second though, maybe I just didn’t know what I was missing (and I will definitely go back and read book 1), but this book felt like its own world. A second chance romance that in a way was also an enemies to lovers. Jeremy and Mira left off 17 years ago in a bad place, neither thought they would ever see each other again and yet here we are.

This book sucks you and keeps you on the edge of your seat, the action/suspense is so so great. It is my favorite genre of romance for a reason and this one did not disappoint in that department.

I also love watching Jeremy with his co-workers/friends…it was a great element that I am sure is incorporated throughout the entire series and added a much needed aspect.

Jeremy and Mira get to fall in love all over and really realize that they were never over the other…and not that it took long to see the feelings coming tot he surface, but it was appreciated that it wasn’t a rushed thing and that we didn’t just see them jump into bed together and had them pretend the past 17 years hadn’t happened. Jeremy’s anger was justified as she did walk away from him and yet, I think his anger was more that he was mad at himself for still being hung up on her.

This book flows nicely and again sucks you in. It is a nice balance of suspense and sweet (being friendship and romance).
