How to find a man in five dates by Tina Beckett

How to Find a Man in Five Dates (Mills & Boon Medical) (New Year’s Resolutions! - Book 1)

Reviewed by Desere 

Dr Miranda Dupris is fed up with men, aren't most woman? So for her New Year's resolution she's banning them all, there will be no relationships, just going on first dates, end of story!

But then sun-kissed doc Jack Perry arrives in a spray of perfect snow and soon it looks as if Mira might be destined to lose her $100 bet , and her heart.

I never knew this author's books existed until the day I discovered her work by accident in my local library, and since then I thank my lucky stars every single day for that an accident that changed my life.

She has the ability to take me on a journey of romances so strong and so mind blowing , it feels like am floating on a cloud nine for weeks afterward. This time she has certainly done it again!

 The character of Jack was all red hot fire, and I fell for this man straight from the start. Mira was a character I really connected with because we have all hit that " this is it I never want to do this again" " I hate men" point in our lives.

The entire read has a nice and even flow , but was not without a few twists and turns , which certainly proved my previous statements about this author's work, she just has a way of taking a story that seems like an everyday kind of thing and bringing it to life in such a manner it just seems like it's a bucket of cold water hitting you and suddenly revealing to you that this type of story is everywhere , you just never stopped to think about it.

I am taking away a message of sometimes we need to let go of a little something special to us in order to gain something that is more special than what we had.

I recommend this read for all fans of romance reads, it was fun, fresh and very entertaining!

Breaking her no dating rule by Amalie Berlin

Breaking Her No-Dating Rule (Mills & Boon Medical) (New Year’s Resolutions! - Book 2)

Reviewed by Desere

Massage therapist Ellory Star needs a fresh start, and to make it happen she brings into play her New Year resolution, there will be no dating, until she's ready. But then again she did not count on getting snowed in with the super delicious ER Dr Anson Graves.

It's not long before Ellory must face the music and the fact that charming Anson might just be the one man she needs to break her no-dating rule for. New Year resolutions are meant to be broken, right ?

This author always writes stories that are somehow just as upbeat and fun to read as they are emotionally heartbreaking, I realize that does not sound like the best of combinations because when most readers sit down to read, they either want to cry their eyes out with joy or sorrow( yep those readers that crave heartache do exist) , or laugh their heads off. This author combines both and believe you me it. totally. works, each and every time!

When I read this author's debut not so long ago I was amazed by her creativity and the way she manages to take something totally wacky and turn it into something so beautiful there is simply no way you can forget it afterwards. This time she has done it again, and I could not have been more delighted to again step back into her mind and learn all there was to learn about Ellory and Anson.

Both characters were written with intensity and flair, the kind that pops from the pages and in some instances makes you do a double take. I loved Ellory's no dating resolution rule, it was something that happens every day in the lives of woman but something that most of us does not stop to think about, or  just what the outcome will be if it had to be us.

The author did an amazing job at putting me front and center for all the various emotions and questions running through the characters minds , and at one point I could so self involved in the character of Ellory it completely threw be for a loop when I realized suddenly sat up and realized I had been living the characters life so intensely I had forgotten about the world around me, just proved how brilliant this author is!

I am taking away a message of just when we think it's time to back away from love , it;s in fact the time to start looking around because love is waiting around the corner. It might not happen the way you imagined it, but if you blink it will be gone quicker than the strike of midnight.

I recommend this read for any and all romance readers. Intense, passionate, compelling and one heck of a ride!

Would their marriage last? This was a marriage done by contract but sparks were flying.

DELUCCA’S MARRIAGE CONTRACT is an emotional roller-coaster of a read. Author Abby Green brought this tale shimmering with sensuality and emotions.

Recommended for all readers.

Reviewed by Desere

Abby Green has done it again, and with a major bang! Her latest read tells the story of Giancarlo Delucca , he has one aim in life and one only , to go global! Even if it means marring the O'Connor heiress to secure the contract that will change his life forever.

Keeling O'Connor wants a place on the board and no part in the business arrangements, ti's all power-play and no hard work. Gianni may have vowed to seduce his wayward bride but Keelin is not a laid back kind of gal, she fights him all the way to the altar.

Happily ever after was never part of this deal, but Gianni finds himself intrigued by Keelin and suddenly he's after a whole new goal, he's determined to turn this beautiful Irish redhead's I don't into I do.

This was such a fun read, I laughed over and over at Keelin's attempts to get Gianni to back down from the deal, it was a really nice different play on the usual very emotional stories I have come to love from this author.

But don't get me wrong, the read still had all that intense emotional buildup and heartbreaking romance needed to make it one of the best HP reads ever.

I adored the characters, both were very well crafted and from page one seemed to jump out at me. As I said I loved Keelin's foil this little marriage deal attempts and I could not get enough of it, nor could I wait for Gianni to be knocked down from his power throne.

I am taking away a message of life is all about give and take, but if you take it all and never give a little , you will end up losing all that you have gained.

I recommend this read for all fans of Abby Green's books, a passionate, realistic, compelling , take me away on an escape of romance and never let me return read.

Bound for me by Natalie Anderson

Bound For Me (Be for Me, #4)

Reviewed by Desere

Savannah Nash is tired, emotionally and psychically. She's packed in back-to-back bar shifts and so is more than ready to head home and fall into bed for a good night's sleep.

But for one fleeing moment she let's her guard down and ends up escaping into a moment of passion-fueled fantasy with the sex on legs, six foot muscle packed temptation that is Connor Hughes.

It's his last night in town and it's not like they will see each other again, so no names, no repercussions and no regrets. It's the best night ever, until the truth comes out!

Connor is no other than the very man that lies behind Savannah 's reason for coming to Summerhill. He's the one she wanted to make pay.

Connor knows he should have confessed his true identity to the ' ice princess' sooner but,  instead of being cold as ice she turns out to be hotter than fire, and this discovery leads him to thinking that she's definitely hiding something, but what?

When he discovers that Savannah is in fact on a mission to destroy his company he immediately sets the wheels in motion for a little game of his own, because losing his company, not happening !  The woman hates him but she also wants him and he will use this to his every advantage , but what if it backfires? Who will be bound to who and where does the lines of lust and distrust begin and end. And just who is going to get burned?

The previous reads in this series were phenomenal and I honestly did not think the author could go bigger or better, but you know what she has done just that.  The story of Connor and Savannah was captivating and one of those reads that left me feeling like I never want to come back down to earth.

For a very long time after this read I felt like I was seeing Connor and Savannah everywhere I went. Their attraction for each other was so powerfully depicted in the read, that I felt it in the air for days afterwards.

I adored both Connor and Savannah , strong and determined characters that know what they want and go after it , no matter what, but with that really awesome touch of reality creeping in here and there, letting me as reader know they only try to stay strong and determined , underneath there is a whole lot more going on. And I could not wait for the author to lay it out for me, and of course when it was revealed I was over the moon and even more hooked on this story.

The plot was fast paced and packed with passion and a journey of revenge, romance, heartache surrender.  Great entertaining dialogue and terrific conflict! I am taking away a message of the future is where our heart lies, not the past and certainly not in the material. The trick is to recognize our future when it turns up in our arms instead of trying to steer it in the direction we think it has to go. If you push too hard you could end up losing it all.

I recommend this compelling, remarkable , captivating read for all lovers of romance. An incredible story of revenge meets it's match and walks right into the arms of love.

To Claim His Heir By Christmas by Victoria Parker

To Claim His Heir by Christmas

Reviewed by Desere

Five years ago Princess Luciana of Arunthia decided to let go of her duties and be a normal woman for a while, experience life and just have fun. 

What she found was more than just fun, it was heaven in the arms of a man whose every touch felt like paradise. But just as fast as he had rescued her, taken her to heaven and imprinted himself in her heart, it just as fast all went to hell. 

She discovered his true identity, Prince Thane of Galancia, her kingdom's enemy, so naturally she took off running, only with her she took a piece of Thane he could never know about. 

Now five years of solitude has passed and it's time for Luciana to pay her debt to her father, she will leave her secluded and very well protected home in China and travel back to Arunthia to take the crown, marry the man her father has chosen and live a life of well pure hell, for the sleazy excuse of a man she is to marry has a different woman in his bed every night and certainly makes her skin crawl, but she has no choice.

That is until Thane spies her again, and this time he has every intention of not letting her escape again, so he kidnaps her, seduces her all over again and is ready to walk her down the aisle and ensure that she does not need to marry anyone but him, the scene is set and it looks like this prince will finally have the perfect Christmas, that is until Luciana reveals her secret and just why she had to strike a bargain with her father. She has to return home and he has no choice but to let her go, again.  

I have been a fan of this author's books from the very first time I picked up her debut Princess in the Iron Mask, and ever since no matter the type of character or the type of setting she continues to amaze me. 

From hotter than hot race-car drivers to sexy kick ass bodyguards to delicious princes her characters steal my heart every time. She has the ability to take a ordinary every day sounding story and turn it into something so raw and so magical it simply leaves me breathless. 

The character of Thane was so commanding it actually made him scary but in a very sexy kind of way. I loved his forcefulness to fight for what he believes in, to stand up and fight for those that cannot and for never giving up hope finding the woman he loves. Of course he had his flaws but then show me the man that is perfect!

The character of Luciana was a heartbreaking one, I really felt bad for this poor woman. It cannot be easy to be forced to hide secrets , hide out in a corner of the world till a allocated time and then take a on a crown and responsibilities you never wanted, and in the process lose more of yourself because what you truly crave will simply never be. 

The author took these two characters on a simply remarkable journey of discovery, love, compassion and built an incredible bond. I am taking away a message of the past only binds us if we allow it to, when you know it's right, fight with all your might for the ones you love. 

I highly recommend this read for all fans of romance, it was sensational, passionate, compelling and a pure romantic masterpiece, and I will happily spend the rest of my days inside the pages of any story this author dreams up, she delivers with a bang each and every time.
