Kian: An Undercover Billionaire Novel by Melody Anne.... Review by Dawn

There was a time when surgeon Kian Forbes would have surrendered every cent of his vast family fortune if it could make Roxie Gilbert happy. That was before she skipped town, broke his heart, and sent him spinning through a string of forgettable one-night stands. He never even knew he’d fathered a child—with Roxie’s sister, no less. But in the wake of tragedy, little Lily needs a home. And Kian wants his daughter. But Roxie’s not giving in or giving up without a fight.
Fearful of her intense feelings for Kian, Roxie ran. Now that her sister’s death has brought her home, she intends to take custody of her niece and avoid Kian—easier said than done on both counts. With their wealth and power, the Forbes men are accustomed to winning. And as she and Kian are forced to spend time together for Lily’s sake, saying no to everything he wants proves impossible…even though it means risking both their hearts all over again.


It has been quite a while since I last read Melody Anne, I was very much looking forward to this book. 

Kian, starts off with immediate drama and pain, I didn't mind that. We get to see Kian the doctor in the beginning and pretty much the only real time we see him in "doctor action," which I did not mind. Working as a trauma doc Kian, has seen his fair share of brutality, but he wasn't ready for this set of victims. 

Secrets are revealed and lives are changed in a matter of a few sentences. Giving you the set up for what you are sure is this angst filled book, not so much....that I did mind. With the truth bomb that is set off in this story and the reemergence of his "one and only love" who left him with no word 4 years ago... HELLO ANGST! But no, this brushes over things that normal ex's would yell, kick and scream about. I found myself a little let down in the drama department AFTER the first chapter. 
Roxie, I found to be a tad off putting. I didn't dislike her, I just never connected with her. She was an amazing mother, I'll give her that. She fought and was fiercely in love with Lily. I could feel that in the wonderfully crafted words describing her need to be with Lily. 

The story is steamy but not too much that it takes away from the story. This second chance romance and surprise child story is really a nice story with a HEA.

MEND: A Second Chance Romance by Chelle Bliss.....Review by Dawn

Mend: A Second Chance Romance by [Bliss, Chelle]


A steamy, gripping standalone romance from USA Today bestselling author Chelle Bliss.

Before senior year, I was forced to move away, leaving behind the only man I ever loved. He promised he'd love me forever. He vowed nothing would tear us apart. He swore he'd wait for me, but Jack lied.

Six years later, when our paths cross again, his broad shoulders, rock-hard chest, and rippling muscles almost make me forget his betrayal. His rugged voice, tempting lips, and sinful smile make it harder for me to deny the feelings I still have for him. 

Now, Jack wants to make me his again, but our past may be too much for us to overcome.

They say time heals all wounds, but the years haven't diminished my heartache. The only thing that dulls the pain is Jack's lips caressing my skin as he whispers, "It's always been you."

Dawn's Review

If you are looking for a sugary sweet HEA, than this is the book for you. Jack and Evie, are such an easy couple to fall in love with, and you will. Chelle Bliss, has a way with giving the reader exactly what they want in a love story. Enough angst that it is not overwhelming and enormous character depth. This is an easy happy story, letting the reader know that love a second time around is often better than the first. There is a crushing blow that happens, but it does not weigh the story down, as it could have if Chelle, decided to go that route. 
You will not be disappointed in this quick and fun read. Chelle Bliss, has delivered a beautiful story that many will enjoy from page 1 to the very last page. 

Review based on honest review, book provided by author.

Coyboy Up : The Coming Home Series Book 3 by Harper Sloan ...... Review by Dawn

As the eldest Davis, Clayton has always tried to lead by example. He takes his job as head of the family businesses seriously, making sure the farm and auto shop are running smoothly—along with keeping an eye on his brother and sister. For him, there's a time and place to let go of the control he holds with an iron grip. And with the way he grew up, coupled with disastrous end to his last relationship, he's just fine with his quiet, solitary life.

Most of the time.

What he hadn't counted on was cute, quirky, shy bookstore owner, Caroline Michaels. She's the proverbial woman next door—well, the next town over, that is. Caroline hasn't lived an easy life, but after escaping an abusive ex, she's finally living it for herself. The last thing she ever expected was a one-night stand with Clay Davis, a night she can't stop thinking about.

So when she falls on hard times and Clay comes out of nowhere to her rescue, she realizes just how impossible it'll be to stay away from him. Now all she has to do is convince him to live a little...

Will Clay be able to give up the reins and finally settle down? And, more importantly, will Caroline muster enough courage to lasso him up?

My Review
Yes, we get our Clay book. I think this was my most anticipated book in the series. I was not sure how Harper, was going to get our brooding Clay, in the right frame of mind to want a relationship. I loved how thie story was not this long drawn out affair. Clay and Caroline meet and then it is game on from that moment. I thought the author did a fantastic job of connecting the characters ,it never felt forced.  I am a fan of a series encompassing all the characters that we have grown to love. Each UIKeyInputUpArrowbook lets us get to know the leads, but the supporting casts play a major role in the underlying stories.
Clay, he is just perfection. I know that is a vast statement but he really is. He has been the one who has always been there for his siblings and Leighton. He put everything on hold to keep the family business up and running. He had believed for so long that he does not need love in his life. Until Caroline.
Caroline, aka, Carrie...aka, Linney,  believes she is broke. She is shy and just wants to fade into the background for the rest of her life. Divorced and sort of running from her past, leads her back home and unbeknownst to her, into Clay's arms. A chance encounter leads to a beautiful love story.
I loved that aspect of family in the series. You do not have to share blood to be family. Parents that are absent,: parents that have passed away or just a horrible relationship with a parent. The Davis siblings have crated an extend family and the love runs deep. I appreciate that this was told in a way that didn't spend chapter after chapter dwelling on the bad,.
Clay and Caroline just made me smile so much and of course the comic relief of Quinn. Maverick, broke my heart again, but with good reason.. I love this series and hope that maybe there willl be a revist at some point.
