My Rating:

4.5 hearts

Favorite Quotes:

From Not Enough:

“Brielle, I am in no way, shape, or form a boy.  If you need me to demonstrate that at any given time, I am up for it.”

“I want to take you home and worship you tonight, tomorrow, and every day until my life is over.”

“He is a few colors short of a rainbow, if you get what I am saying.  He has no filter.  I am not sure he even understands half of what comes out of his mouth, so I don’t know how in the hell anyone around him is expected to.”

“I want to bend him in ways Gumby would be jealous of.  I wonder if there is a pill or a shot for these feelings.”

From Not Leaving:

“I smile up at my gorgeous husband.  ‘For that, Mr. James, you get a reward,’ I seductively tell him.  ‘Oh, Mrs. James, in that case, I have been a very good boy.  Why don’t you come over here and sit down, and we will talk about the first thing that comes up.’”

“I feel like I am the poster child for depression commercials.  Each symptom they list could check off in bright red ink.”

“I am walking down the aisle with you to our forever.  You will never have to take a step in life without me by your side.”

“We haven’t had the easiest path, and we didn’t always choose the correct fork in the road, but through it all, we always made our way back to each other.  That is what matters, today and always.  You are one of the strongest men I know, and while we aren’t perfect, we are perfect for each other.  You give hope when I feel hopeless, peace when it is chaotic, but mostly, you always give me your love.”

From Not Hiding:

“Great, I have a better chance of having sex in a hammock, standing up, than I will trying to thwart her plan.”

“I can’t sing worth a damn, and she has actually asked me to stop singing in the shower because it scares her dog, but I swear I can jam out in the shower.”

“I would kick you in the vagina, but I am afraid I’d lose my shoe.”

“You are proof that evolution can go in reverse if you think that shit is going to fly.”

“Nope, been there, done that.  Got that t-shirt, and that shit doesn’t fit anymore,”

From Not Over:

“Well it isn’t a family dinner unless someone leaves in tears.  Another successful year.  Who wants cake?”

My Review:

I adored this books and all the characters with their frenetic energy, sassy mouths, and scrappy personalities.  What fun.  Leigh Ann Lundsford’s writing style and dialogs are casual, breezy, irreverent, wicked funny.  I was instantly sucked in and had difficulty disentangling myself from the story when I had to put my precious kindle down.   This family is full of drama, frenetic energy, quick wits, smart mouths, chaotic pranks and outings, deep passion, and a long history family disappointments and heartbreak.  The books are a non-stop flurry of activity, alternating between fun, chaotic, sexy, and dramatic.  If these people were real, they would undoubtedly have to live on sugar, caffeine, and amphetamines, as their homes are like bee-hives and their sassy mouths are always popping off with humorous and witty sass, even when fighting with each other. I read all four and was sorry to see it end.  I am not a fan of angst, and at times, the books could be quite angsty, but the sassy humor of the rest of the family, and of course the steamy love scenes, more than made up for the discomfort and conflict.  I have grown to adore this family and Leigh Ann Lundsford.  I imagine she is quite the firecracker herself, and I would love to just hang with her and drink wine.  Her writing is witty, clever, fast paced, emotional, moving, steamy, familiar, and informal.  And I loved reading her work, despite the angst ;)  I think she should start in on the next generation of this riotous clan and just keep on going.

However, her grandparents were taken too soon, and she was left with her older sibling to try to raise her younger ones. She couldn’t help but let the doubts take over her life. Would she ever be enough? Then Colby walked in and changed everything, and just when she was facing her fears and falling in love for the first time, Colby ripped her heart out.

Will they be able to get past their mistakes to live the life they both want? Did Colby finally break Brielle when all he wanted to do was protect and love her?

EXCERPT:

He looked at me a long moment. “I want you so fucking bad, Summer, it hurts.” He combed his long hair back with his fingers and chuckled at some inside joke. “You have no idea how bad.”

“Then what’s holding you back? It seems to me–”

He shook his head. “Can’t explain it to myself.” His dark lashes dropped as he stared down at the floor, and when he lifted his face to me, I realized that I was falling hard for him.

“I guess I don’t want to scare you off.” He shook his head. “Not that I’m scary in bed,” he quickly amended. “I don’t want to come on too strong. Hell, I guess I’m just trying to make a good impression.”

“Stop with the good impression shit. I want a lasting impression, Gage.”

His pale blue eyes flickered in the light as he looked at me. “I can do lasting.” He crossed the room in two steps. His arms curled around my back, and he pulled me against him. His mouth covered mine. The kiss was long and hard and driven by that intense longing that had been building up between us. He took hold of my good hand and walked me down the short hall to my bedroom. He pushed open the door with his boot and led me inside.

 

 My Rating:

5 hearts

 

Favorite Quotes:

“You’ve always been a pro at tossing out a golden nugget of hope and then snatching it back with the black, greedy hand of doom.”

“A scared rabbit would have run.  As I recall, you were threatening them with your menacing curtain rods.”

“And, somehow, I can’t picture your brother grumpy.  He seems like the kind of guy who would chuckle through a root canal.”

My Review:

 This is the first Tess Oliver book I have read – I know, I know – slap me on the back of the head already!  I have truly been missing out on these entertaining delights if all her books are like this one.  Her writing is moving, sensuous, amusing, heartfelt, realistic, insightful, humbling, and just – damn good.  Some of her characters sound like bad boys that would probably look scary and intimidating to me if I glimpsed them on the street, although Ms. Oliver presented them to me as endearing brothers, lovers, boyfriends, hard workers, caring humans, aspiring entrepreneurs, etc.  After checking her massive Goodreads list – I see I have a lot of catching up to do and hopefully many more humbling moments in my future.

Synopsis


When a drunk driver tragically orphans Skylar Rose at the age of sixteen, she leaves her dreams behind and takes on the daunting task of helping her elderly grandmother raise her young sister. While other girls her age were living a typical carefree life, she was picking up double shifts at a local café and struggling to pay the bills.
Always putting her sister’s needs and school first, Skylar has never had time to date or develop relationships. Now a senior in college, she has her sights set on an amazing internship opportunity. The last thing she needed was for a sexy distraction like Sebastian Thorne to walk into her life.
Sebastian Thorne had been an entitled and reckless nineteen year old when he got behind the wheel of his new sports car that night. When his night of indulgence goes tragically wrong, Sebastian hesitantly turns to the one person, he knows can make everything go away…the one person he hates ..his father.
Now twenty-six, Sebastian is the young enigmatic and powerful CEO of his late father’s design company, Thorne Enterprises. With both millions in the bank and a new woman on his arm almost every night, the world never knew the dark secret he carried inside. Still plagued with nightmares from the night of that horrific accident and having to leave the beautiful girl behind, Sebastian vows to find the one that haunts his dreams. Sometimes the choice of revisiting our past opens the door to a future that we never thought possible.
Haunted by their past, these two want nothing more than to have their life given back to them. But what do you do when the person who gave you back your life, was the very one that took it from you in the first place?

The essence of who we are lies not in what we have, but in what we are willing to give up. Because in the end, Time and Tide wait for no one.

After sacrificing all that she had, the evil princess of the Underworld is still successful in her bid to tear Finn from Stasia’s life. In the midst of her search to reclaim him, Stasia is summoned to the island nation of Cyprus to take part in an age-old ritual; unveiling the missing pieces of her ancestry and re-igniting an ancient war. As she struggles to both save Finn’s soul and free Carmen’s mind, Stasia’s bravery and determination will be pushed to its breaking point. A dark storm is forming on the horizon, and the forces who are vying to destroy her may be much closer than she thinks. Destiny weaves a sticky web of evil, betrayal, and revenge that can only be undone by the purity of love and the soul’s unyielding will to survive. In the last installment of the Daughters of the Sea trilogy, the past will collide with the present as Stasia’s future hangs in the balance. The prophecy that paved the way for her new life may indeed be the very thing that strips her of the ones she loves the most.

Haven’t started the Daughters of the Sea series yet? Start it off with Forsaken!

Forsaken

Once you’ve been touched by darkness, it never leaves you…

Abandoned by her parents as an infant; seventeen year old Hannah spent her childhood wading through countless foster families until being adopted by the Whitmans three years ago. Unfortunately, Atlanta’s high society wasn’t quite ready for Hannah…or the strange events that plague her

Chilling visions of murder, unexplained hallucinations, and a dark, mysterious guy who haunts her nightmares all culminate to set in motion a journey of self-discovery that will challenge everything she’s ever believed; not to mention her sanity.

Sent to live at The House of Lorelei on Bald Head Island, NC for ‘kids like her’, Hannah quickly realizes things are not what they seem. Her fellow ‘disturbed’ teens are actually the descendants of mythical Sea Gods and Goddesses. And so is she.

But when Finn, the ghost from her dreams, appears in the flesh; her nightmares become reality and her dark visions begin coming true. Inexplicably drawn to him, she can’t deny the dangerous hold he has on her heart. The deadly secrets he harbors will ultimately test her courage and push the boundaries of her love.

She must decide if she is ready to embrace the ancient legend she is prophesized to be a part of. The fate of all the descendants will forever depend upon it.

I am a southern belle at heart with a crazy streak that desperately tries to escape at every opportunity. I love all things nostalgic, rustic, and quirky. I’ve been told I see the world through rose-colored glasses, but I prefer to think of them as kaleidoscope glasses – swirling and morphing reality into something I can digest (who hasn’t pretended those pasty lima beans were really kiwi strawberry jelly beans?).

When I’m not writing I’m making jewelry, painting, drinking sweet tea, watching the discovery channel, or going on random adventures in the mountains of North Carolina with my amazing husband.

She goes to the one place that holds her most precious memories, her cabin by the lake. Life hasn’t always been easy for Cali.

Unwilling to risk their comfortable friendship, neither confessed their desires.
Losing touch after college, a chance meeting reconnects them.
They want each other.
But love in the city is never quite that easy.

Favorite Quotes:

“Every time he moved, the invigorating, crisp scent of his soap drifted along with him, sending my nostrils into nosgasms breathing him in.”

“He held me in his arms like I was weightless.  Like gravity had no effect on me, and if he let go, I’d float around like an astronaut in space.”

“He made me love drunk.”

“It’s been awhile since yours truly had her boat rocked, but I remember what it’s like being young and in love and not being able to keep your hands to yourself.  Don’t you dare try to cool that down, because one day your bodies will betray you.  You’ll need pills to get your buddy up and she’ll need lube to make her slide slippery.  Trust me Carter, take advantage of your body’s performance now because it will only go downhill from here.”

 

My Review:

This book is perfection.  It has all my favorite reading elements, and then some.  It is well written, entertaining, a second chance romance, epic love, thoughtful and tender consideration of each other, deliciously steamy love scenes, interesting and friendly secondary characters, clever humor, and very little conflict or angst among the main characters.  There is conflict… always is in life… but at least most of it is not between the two lovers.  I totally appreciate a story where the main characters are reveling in each other and enjoying their time together, rather than fighting their feelings or attraction.  There are poignant moments that had me sobbing, although I was usually smiling with contentment and humming with satisfaction.  I feasted on this book and wasn’t willing to put it down.  In truth, I only stopped when my kindle put itself down during those periods I accidentally fell into unconsciousness.  I adored it and cannot wait to start the next one in the series, which I hope will continue into infinity.

Favorite Quotes:

 “He turned me inside out with one simple kiss, one swipe of his tongue, something no man had ever done, and in that moment, I wanted so much more from him than just a kiss.  I wanted everything.” “She was just more.  And, for the first time in my life, I wanted more.” “When I kissed you for the first time, I knew I wanted you to be the last woman I ever kissed for the rest of my life.”

My Review:

 Another hit out of the ballpark!  Swoon, I am in love and totally wanting to fan-girl Steph Nuss.  I adore her writing.  Another lovely, well written, entertaining, and sensual love story.  I cannot wait to see who the next book in the series will focus on, but I suspect it will have something to do with a couple that meet on New Year’s Eve.  There was a nice set-up for that anyway ;)   I hope I am paying attention when book 3 comes out.

Steph Nuss was born and raised in rural Kansas, where she currently resides with her black Labrador son named Gunner. She grew up with a passion for reading and writing. When she’s not immersed into the land of fiction, she enjoys listening to music that came before her time, watching movies and reruns of her favorite shows, and hanging out with her family and friends. She also has a bachelor’s degree in psychology that she’ll never use…unless she’s profiling her characters of course.
