Review: Seducing Kaden by Siobhan Davis

C6E9C3E0-5E71-4900-B902-A21F7BAFDA76

.

.

“I tried to stay away from her, Kev. I tried real hard, but it’s always been Eva for me. I didn’t care that she was my professor or that she’s married. We just have this connection. It’s been there from the moment I met her, and the more I get to know her, the harder I fall. There won’t ever be anyone else for me.”

.

Normally I don’t like to read books with cheating, because somebody is going to get hurt and I don’t enjoy reading about that. But when I’m reading about Eva, who had a terrible, loveless upbringing and was told at 14 that she would be marrying this older man and was forced into this loveless, abusive marriage. Now I can deal with reading about cheating.

.

Kaden adores Eva. He feels protective of her, and wants to help her. Eva adores Kaden. She won’t let him help, because she feels sure it will get him killed. This is a very emotional, passionate, intense love story!! Two hearts that are broken when apart, but have an intense connection when they are together. But the odds against them are so great, will they ever be able to really be together as one? Don’t miss this this beautiful, suspenseful love story!

.

I love getting to know each of the Kennedy Boys separately. They are all so passionate and loving. But they all have their own baggage to work through, because of growing up in a family where the parents where unavailable and the boys took care of each other. The Kennedys sure have had their problems. Seducing Kaden can be read as a standalone, but you will enjoy it more if you’ve followed the series. Why not start from the beginning? You wont be sorry, trust me on this one.

.

At the end of Seducing Kaden, we get a scene with Keven that leads us into the next Kennedy Boys book, Forgiving Keven. I personally can’t wait! He’s one of my favorites of the boys, after Kyler, and I can’t wait for his story!!

Seducing Kaden, an all-new taboo romance from USA Today bestselling author Siobhan Davis is LIVE!

SeducingKadenFinal-FJM_Kindle_1800x2700.jpg

Kaden

The woman I love will never be mine because she already belongs to another.

I’ve tried everything to forget her, but it’s impossible when she occupies a starring role in my dreams. My eyes are glued to her shapely curves whenever I see her around campus, and it doesn’t help that she looks as miserable as I feel.

I wonder if she misses me as much as I miss her.

Short of putting a bullet through the skull of that gangster she’s married to, I’m stuck in a hellhole of my own making.

Until fate intervenes, setting us on a collision course we can’t avoid.

Evelina

When I was a little girl, I dreamed of falling in love. The all-consuming sweep-you-off-your-feet kind of love I swooned over in movies.

It didn’t take long for that fairytale notion to come crashing down around me. Now I’m trapped in a marriage I despise with no way out.

The only light in the dark is Kaden Kennedy—the one true love of my life. He doesn’t know he is, because I’m forced to love him from afar, condemned to toss and turn at night, crying over everything I want and all I can never have.

Seeing him day in, day out, destroys me, but there’s no other choice; I had to push him away to keep him safe.

Because if my husband ever finds out I’m in love with another man, I won’t be the only one in danger.

While you don’t need to read the earlier books in this series to enjoy Seducing Kaden, it is highly recommended. This book is a contemporary new adult romance, and it is only suitable for readers aged eighteen and older due to mature content, sexual situations, and language.

This story includes details of an extramarital affair, so if you don’t like cheating or controversial storylines, then this book isn’t for you.

Release Blitz: Our Last First Kiss by Christie Ridgway

OLFK_AvailableBANNER

Our Last First Kiss by Christie Ridgway is a BRAND NEW STANDALONE romance and is NOW AVAILABLE! Welcome to Heartbreak Hotel!

Our Last First Kiss - Ebook

Add to your TBR ➤ http://bit.ly/2Cl5vov

OLFK_TEASER1

Welcome to the famed resort, The Hathaway at Dragonfly Beach, where newlyweds come to honeymoon, where anniversary couples celebrate milestones, and where broken hearts find a place to heal.

After her best friend is jilted at the altar, maid of honor Lilly Durand whisks the bride to Dragonfly Beach and its legendary hotel, determined to help her overcome her misery. Lilly won’t admit it, but she’s hurting too. During the few days of pre-wedding festivities, a powerful attraction had grown between her and the handsome and confident best man, Alec Thatcher. Now she’ll never see him again, but she’s decided to consider that a good thing. This way her inconvenient crush can’t turn into something so dangerous as love. But then, to her dismay, she discovers Alec is just a room key away at what some call the Heartbreak Hotel.

Alec Thatcher doesn’t have the time or inclination for long-term romance. Serial dating has suited his confirmed-bachelor status just fine—until he meets Lilly Durand and his world turns on its axis. She claims to be as relationship-averse as he, but when the two of them are together he can’t recall his own reasons against commitment. Though Lilly touches his heart and soul, she’s as cautious as she is sexy. With a stubborn streak a mile long, Alec will have to exert all his powers of persuasion to give Lilly her last first kiss…

HERE’S  MY REVIEW:

This is such a great start to a wonderful new series of books about the Heartbreak Hotel. The emotion and angst this couple were feeling. She being so afraid of heartbreak, that she stayed clear of falling in love. Having an upbringing that made her feel unloveable. She steers clear of any kind of relationships, knowing it would just lead to her broken heart. Then Alec too isn’t a stranger to pain and heartache. So he isn’t interested in anything more than one-night stands. But the magic of the Heartbreak Hotel does it’s thing to bring them together. It’s so beautiful and so touching.

The characters were so beautifully written and very complex. Christie always writes such emotionally moving stories, with characters that you can’t help but get emotionally attached to. This was one of those stories for me.

The secondary characters were great and I look forward to reading some of their stories, as the Heartbreak Hotel series goes on!

From Wall Street Journal and New York Times bestselling author Carly Phillips comes a powerful new story of love, hope and redemption, of finding light in the darkest places.

Fearless, an all-new emotional standalone by Carly Phillips is now LIVE!

fearless_frontcover

Fall in love with the Wards…

Mechanic and garage owner, Kane Harmon is used to the wealthy beautiful women visiting his beach town. He doesn’t get involved because he knows most females would merely be slumming for the summer.

Except Halley Ward isn’t just passing through. She lives a solitary life in a bungalow on the beach. A woman tormented by her past, distant from her wealthy family, different from Kane’s usual fare of town girls who know his M.O.- Don’t expect more than he’s willing to give.

Kane rescues Halley and her broken down car from the side of the road and instantly he’s hooked. She says she’s not interested in him. He knows she lies. And he makes it his mission to bring her back to life, to return her emotionally to her family. To show her the colors around her were as vibrant as the ones she puts on her canvas.

Until past meets present and threatens all the progress they’ve made. Then it’s Halley’s turn to step up and stand up for the relationship and life she’s finally coming to believe she deserves

Excerpt

Now…what do you say to some Italian ices? Ever been to Hank’s?”

She shook her head. “I’ve passed it but there’s always been a ridiculous crowd of people out front.”

“Well, it’s worth the wait. Feel like going on the way home?”

She nodded. “If you can keep me occupied while we wait, then I don’t mind.”

He laughed. “I think I like that challenge.”

When they arrived at Hank’s, an outdoor ice cream and Italian ices stand, they discovered a short line. Not enough for him to have to entertain her, and before they knew it, they were ordering.

Because they also had ice cream, Halley changed her mind when it came to ordering and asked for vanilla ice cream with hot fudge topping. Kane got a red Italian ice.

They took their desserts and walked over to a short brick wall and hopped up, sitting side by side, legs swinging as they ate.

He finished his first. “Good?” he asked, putting his cup down beside him.

She glanced over, laughing. “Your tongue is red.”

He stuck it out at her and grinned.

“Want some of mine?” She held out the spoon of vanilla and chocolate mixed.

“No, doesn’t exactly mix with my cherry.” He paused, as if thinking of something. “Unless…”

“Hmm?” She raised an eyebrow.

“Unless I’m kissing you.” And before she could react, he leaned over and swept his tongue over her lips and into her mouth, devouring her quickly but thoroughly.

She moaned into him, leaning in close, savoring the warm cherry flavor he brought to her dessert.

Before she was ready, he lifted his head and met her gaze, his eyes dark and hungry. “Now that is how to eat an ice cream.”

Until past meets present and threatens all the progress they’ve made. Then it’s Halley’s turn to step up and stand up for the relationship and life she’s finally coming to believe she deserves

Excerpt:

He nipped at her lip one last time, swiped his tongue over her in a soothing motion before pulling back and gazing into her eyes.

“So much better than I fucking imagined,” he said in a gruff voice.

She let out a hesitant laugh as reality drifted back and settled on her shoulders. “Kane…”

“No regrets,” he warned her.

She shook her head. “I don’t. I can’t regret that kiss. But you need to know, I’m not a good bet for a relationship.”

He narrowed his gaze, that heady stare still hot on hers. “What makes you say that?”

She swallowed hard. “I’m different. You know that about me. I like being alone. I work hard, get lost in my paintings. I forget what time it is. Sometimes I don’t pay attention to days and nights. I spend more time alone than with people and most guys don’t want a girl they can’t take out with their friends because she doesn’t like big crowds.” There. She’d said it all, put her truths out there for him to hear.

Not all of her truths, of course. There were some she didn’t drag into the light of day. Ever. She didn’t even allow them in her nightmares if she could help it. The problem was, sometimes she couldn’t control her dreams. She wished she could.

“And?” he asked, as if what she’d said meant nothing.

“I’ve had unsuccessful relationships. And do you want to know why they were unsuccessful? Because I’m odd,” she said before he could answer. “And they got frustrated with me and broke things off. So I don’t do relationships anymore. I don’t like disappointing people and I don’t like being hurt when things inevitably end.”

“Hmm.”

She opened her eyes wide. “That’s all you have to say? Hmm?”

An understanding smile curved his lips. “You’re forgetting that I know you and I like what I see. I’m not looking to change you. And I’m not looking to force you into a relationship you don’t want.”

She blinked and braced herself up with a hand on the sand. “You aren’t?”

He shook his head. “I like you. I like spending time with you. And yeah, I like kissing you. A fuck of a lot. And I plan to do it more often. But trap you in a relationship if that’s not what you want?” He shook his head. “Not happening.”

She swiped her tongue over her kiss-roughened lips. “I don’t know what to say.” Nor did she know what to make of his proclamation and easy acceptance.

“I like you and you like me, yes?”

She nodded.

“And the kiss, it was good?” he asked, stroking a hand down her cheek and eliciting a shiver that went straight to her already erect and aware nipples and down to her sex.

“Yes,” she murmured.

“Then let’s not overanalyze or examine what this is or isn’t. My life is crazy what with the garage, my father, my nephew who hangs around every day… and now a side gig that I definitely enjoy.” He gestured back to her deck. “No need to label and complicate things.”

She was surprised to hear him be so nonchalant. With his pursuit of a date and him showing up here to build her deck in his limited spare time, she definitely thought he wanted something serious.

If he didn’t, if he could accept who she was and what she could give, then she didn’t see an issue with letting things be and taking it one day at a time.

“So are we on the same page?” he asked, his lips brushing over hers. “We have fun? We enjoy each other? And we don’t put pressure on either one of us with expectations?”

“Agreed,” she said, wondering why her stomach tumbled over the idea that he didn’t want her for anything more than just a good time. He’d given her exactly what she’d asked for.

I haven’t always been this bad…

Up until recently, I was the kind of girl who wore white cotton panties and bent at the knees rather than the waist.

Pomp and circumstance changed all that.

Jaxson Cassidy was my first taste of bad, and I liked it more than I should have. Just not in the way I was meant to. I couldn’t help myself though. I found him irresistible. That sexy grin, those skilled fingers, and that dirty, dirty mouth were a lethal combination.

I wasn’t supposed to want him. I wasn’t supposed to let him put his hands on me. I wasn’t supposed to do a lot of things…but I did.

He wants to keep me close.
I should push him away.

He says he can help me.
I’m not so sure.

For some reason, he thinks there’s good left in me.
What if he’s wrong?

Everyone knows a good boy can’t turn a bad girl around.
Everyone knows it’s always the other way.
Everyone…except him.

Afraid to go home to face my broken life, I pretend to be my twin so I can take her job in Jackson Harbor caring for a six-year-old girl. Imagine my surprise when I find out my new boss is my mysterious stranger—Dr. Ethan Jackson.

MY THOUGHTS:

Love born in a lie is the wrong kind of love.

This is is definitely one of those “feel all the feels” books!! So good!! In fact, this is going in my favorites of 2018 folder! Now, I have never been one of those reviewers who rewrites the whole summary…so unnecessary. Instead, I think it’s more important to let you know how this book affected me.

Well, the characters in the book were written extremely well. It was so easy to get caught up in the moment of how the character was feeling. Whether it was Nic (Nicole) feeling traumatized by being betrayed by her sister and fiancé, or Ethan feeling swept away by his attraction to her from the moment he first saw her. I felt in tune to each and every one on the character’s emotions. I love that! Fabulously written characters!

The physical attraction between the two of them was instant, but the falling in love took some time to get to know each other. Beautifully done! But the two characters had so much baggage that it made nothing easy. They had to work for this relationship.

Lilly, Ethan’s daughter. She was a sweet character. Seeing her relationship with her father was endearing, he was so dedicated to being a good father. She adored him. But she also adores her grandmother, Ethan’s mother, Kathleen. She’s loved and spoiled by all her Uncles and her Aunt Shayleigh or Shay.

Ethan’s large family are wonderful! I’m in love with them already, and I can’t wait to read all their stories! It’s nice because we get a little peak at who they all are in this book. I’m wondering who the next book will be about!!  Oh. My. Goodness. Lexi has put up the next two books (without covers) on Goodreads! Keep your eye out for the next books from The Boys of Jackson Harbor.

Straight Up Love, Jake’s story, releases in May, and Dirty Reckless Love, Levi’s story, releases in August!!!!!!!

The Wrong Kind Of Love is a MUST READ!! Put it on your TBR NOW!! You WON’T want to miss it!!

Photojournalist and die-hard wanderer Gage Lowell plans a little R & R in Crescent Cove, the place of idyllic childhood summers. Beach House No. 9 seems like a great place to relax after his latest harrowing adventure and he plans to surprise old friend and current pen pal, Skye Alexander, who manages the beachside properties.

But upon arrival, Skye doesn’t seem all that happy to make his re-acquaintance…
Skye knows it’s nuts not to be eager to spend time with the hard-bodied, ultra-sexy Gage. But it’s clear he sees her as just a friend and she might be thinking of him in a little more…uh, intimate terms. And then there’s the subject of secrets. Clearly he’s holding one back and she has them of her own. But the way he smiles at her…then the way he kisses her…can she open herself up to him in order to discover just how close to Paradise the two of them might come?

My Review of Scoring Mr. Romeo by A.M. Madden & Joanne Schwehm!

 

194D14D3-864B-455E-A87A-4084C9BCA9BA

Here’s a tip: never underestimate romance.

Falling in love was the furthest thing from my mind. I’m a single mother raising a strong little boy, and he is my one and only priority.

The universe felt otherwise, sending me―actually, my son’s soccer ball―hurdling toward a stunningly handsome, perfect man, who said all the right things. He made it hard to ignore how much I missed romance.

In the past, when I met a man, they ran as soon as they heard I was a widow with a child. Not this guy. No, he fell in love with my son, and in turn my son fell in love with him. But, it was hard to believe he felt the same about me. My job was to be the strong one―to protect our hearts from sweet dreams that never lasted.

~~~

Women told me I was a master of romance. They were right. I knew how to sweep a woman off her feet, to make her feel special, and good in all the right places. I wasn’t a saint. I’ve had my share of one-night stands. They served their purpose, giving me a steady diet of romance without the hassle of commitment.

Then one day at the park, a soccer ball came careening toward my head, and my life changed in an instant. I never imagined that true love would come in the form of a five-year-old little boy. And then I got to know his mother: She was strong, independent, drop-dead gorgeous, and someone I desired – I just needed to prove it to her.

She called me Mr. Romeo, and that was fine with me.

Lesson learned: Love always trumps everything.

3BB72513-9A38-4041-8A7B-EC11B8921738

O Romeo, Romeo! Wherefore art thou Romeo?
Luca is such a romantic guy. He’s sexy, romantic, kind, sweet, considerate and he even falls in love with Sabrina’s son! What more could a single mom, who has been hurt, lonely, made to feel inadequate, want in a guy!!

I love this story! I love Luca! The way little Mikey took to him showed how much he craved that male presence in his life. And even though he had his grandfathers, it wasn’t the same. He really took to Luca. It was a beautiful bond, how they took to each other so quickly. I loved how important it was to Luca to be there for Mikey.

Sabrina…she was more damaged from her background than Mickey was. She had so many fears and insecurities, and they were getting in the way of her allowing herself to truly allow Luca in.

I went through quite a few tissues. It’s very emotional. But I love emotional books. As long as there’s a HEA! If you like an en Emotional Contemporary Romance, give this a try!
