Redeeming the Rebel Doc by Susan Carlisle

Reviewed by Helen

I really enjoy Susan Carlisle’s stories they have lots of emotion and feelings throughout them and this one is so very good, we have a Doctor who seems to be a bit of a rebel doing as he wants and then we have a PR executive who seems prim and proper when they are put together to help improve our Doc sparks fly as they learn a lot about each other.

Doctor Rex Maxwell has been through a malpractice lawsuit over the last year and he has been told by his boss that it is time to change his image and help with the hospitals as well, he reluctantly agrees and this brings him in contact with the beautiful Tiffani Romano there are a few clashes at first but as they work together he sees what lies underneath and the attraction grows.

Tiffani Romano has broken up with her boyfriend and she is determined to do well with this assignment so as she can get a promotion and move away although she carries a big dislike towards Doctors in general nothing is going to stand in her way, that is until she gets to know the handsome Dr Rex and his caring ways. It doesn’t take long before her feelings for Rex are growing.

Rex and Tiffani are so very opposite to each other and it has pulled them together in a very sensual story, a story that shows true love and strength, I loved Rex from the start he is made out to be a rebel and a bit of a bad boy but really he is a true hero and Tiffani is such a beautiful person caring and strong, I loved her determination but I loved the way they both fell for each other, MS Carlisle knows how to bring her characters to life in these stories, this is one that I highly recommend.

I love Amy Andrews’s stories and this one is a beauty, hot, steamy and so very sensual and sporty to boot as well. MS Andrews knows how to write a story that is sure to pull the reader in from the first page, her characters are easy to like, and they are strong, smart and fabulous, this is the third book in this series about woman playing Aussie Rules in their first national competition and in this one we meet Darcy Clarke who has been picked to play for the Brisbane Banshees and we journey with her to an awesome HEA.

Darcy is over the moon at being picked for the team, she loves her footy and has put everything into it, she has been single for the last two years after her boyfriend Tony walked out on her, she is still sharing the apartment with Levi Phillips who was Tony’s best friend and for two years they have become close friends they are there for each other and he is so easy to talk to. Darcy is determined to focus on her footy and winning the grand final but when her ex Tony is appointed coach of the team she puts the past behind and looks to the future.

Levi is a physio therapist and yoga teacher he has a man bun and is gorgeous but he is calm, cool and collected but he has always had feelings for Darcy during the years that she was with Tony but in the last two years that they have become friends and he is biding his time to finally let her know how he feels after the footy season, he knows what it means to her. But fate steps in and with Tony pushing and an injury to Darcy things happen a bit faster than was planned.

This really is a fabulous friends to lovers story, I absolutely loved Levi what a sexy hero he is so loving, caring and thoughtful and yeh he knows how to make a girl smile and Darcy what a heroine truly when Levi opens up to her about his feelings although shocked she is in and opening up about her feelings as well they make the perfect couple. This story will make you laugh and smile the banter between Darcy and Levi is the best and the sensual romance and journey to that stupendous HEA is so very good, thank you MS Andrews for another keeper, I highly recommend this one.

Alice is doing her best to get away from the wedding reception for her cousin where she is a bridesmaid, somehow she ends up in a suite on the penthouse pure luxury something that is so different to what she is used to and practically in the arms of a Greek God and a couple of glasses of champagne and she is talking like she has not done before either. After a night of passion she leaves only to find weeks later that she is pregnant and it is time to find Adoni and let him know and this opens up a whole new world for beautiful, loving, and caring Alice.

Adoni has been through a lot in his life, a self -made billionaire and he is determined never to fall in love and never to marry but he does not plan on meeting Alice and his trust issues especially with woman make this even harder for him when he finds that his feelings are hard to come to terms with, he is a strong protective hero but there is so much love that he keeps inside of him and Alice might be just the woman to show him how to love. The news that he is going to be a father rocks him and a trip back to Greece with the gorgeous feisty woman has him falling for her.

This story left me melting with happiness and warmth as Alice and Adoni’s passion and sensual feelings for each other burn up the pages the story is filled with emotion and love, it is a heartfelt romance that I didn’t want to put down. Adoni is a hero I fell for from the start even with his well earnt trust issues and Alice oh what a heroine I loved her honesty and openness, this one is a real Cinderella story for me my favourite troupe and MS West has written a beautiful story that I highly recommend, I loved this story another one for the keeper shelf, this is one not to be missed.

Adoni Petrakis was surprised when Alice walked in his office and claimed she was pregnant.  And he was the father. It was one passion-filled night but he had thought he had seen the last of Alice when he found that his wallet was riffled with and her gone.

Dare he believe what Alice was saying? He still remembered spending the sizzling night with her and the chemistry between them.

This story just grabbed me from page one and I practically inhaled it, it is fast paced, steamy, witty and moving, MS Marsh has packed a lot into this one and left me one very happy reader, Jaxon and Angie come to life on the pages as we get to know them and they get to know each other, my advice is to make yourself comfortable for this one because you won’t want to put it down.

Angelica Bryant has always wanted to play Aussie Rules it has been her dream forever and now she has the chance with the Female competition starting and she has made the team, although her famous soccer Dad doesn’t seem to be too happy about her footy code she is in and stoked about it. When a one night stand (that she never does) with a stranger she meets in a bar turns, who turns out to be a top sports manager her world changes but she must put footy first.

Jaxon Flint managers some of the top sports people in the country, he is handsome and up front with people so when he meets a gorgeous woman in a bar and they seem to click instantly and he takes her home for the night, he is wanting more but when morning comes she is gone only to meet him again later that day when she walks into his office. It is a small world and fate has brought Angie and Jaxon together, but can he overcome his past hurts to allow himself to love Angie the way she deserves to be loved?

This really is such a great story the witty banter and one liners were fabulous as was Jaxon and Angie’s journey to such a sporty fabulous HEA, Angie is such a strong feisty heroine who knows how to love even with the hurt from her childhood and Jaxon I loved him what a hero but he was vulnerable and Angie was just who he needed. I love my sports and my romances and MS Marsh has combined them in a sensual, touching story that had me turning the pages woohoo I highly recommend this one, truly it is one not to be missed.

Blake is working hard to get a promotion and breaking this case will nail it for him but he doesn’t count on Reece being in the picture because it is not long before he vows to keep her safe at all costs, but Reece is not fond of cops and he needs to work out why before he can get her to trust him. Blake has a lot of issues from his past that he needs to overcome as well and together they may be able to get there.

I really enjoyed this story it has everything that a good romantic suspense should have as well as gorgeous guys who dance on stage there is fun dialogue throughout that will have you smiling and Reece what a heroine hurt as a young girl and woman nothing can stop her strength and determination to get to the truth and Blake what a hero he dances well has a witty sense of humour and is so caring and protective. There are twists and turns in this one that will have you yelling at the bad guys and cheering the good guys one.
