Synopsis
 .
MJ is at it again! She’s cooking up another steamy romance for your reading pleasure.

.

Luc Chevalier is a satisfied man – or so he thinks. His businesses are thriving, he has all the excitement, money and beautiful women any man could want. He dines at the best restaurants and stays at the most luxurious hotels as he makes his way around the globe. So why does he suddenly find himself so restless?

Megan Sullivan is a single mom with a rather ordinary life. She is comfortable with things just the way they are. She has a six-year-old son, Elliott, a cozy house in Boulder, Colorado, and a photography business to put food on the table. Her ex lives hours away in Florida, providing enough space for him to feed his drug addiction without exposing Elliott to his father’s illness. Megan is on her own and she intends to keep it that way.

Megan is convinced by her best friend to take a trip to Paris for a few days. Little does she know she is about to be thrust into the arms of Luc Chevalier, the sexiest man to ever set foot on the Eiffel Tower. They agree to one night together and no more. In those few short hours he manages to draw out the passionate woman that Megan has carefully hidden way for years. Once she has a taste of what she’s been missing, she finds it almost impossible to go back to her life as it was.

Will two people who don’t believe in happily-ever-after manage to put aside their doubts and find their forever?
Join Luc as he discovers that everything he never wanted is the only thing he will ever need.

Break in Two (The Breaking Hearts Series #1)
.
Synopsis
.
Thirty-one year old Claire Hatley is running from Seattle having just discovered that her live-in boyfriend has traded her in for a twenty-two year old hostess. Devastated and alone Claire must make a fresh start. She answers an ad for a chef at a guest ranch just outside Colorado Springs and finds herself face to face with Cole Mitchell, quite possibly the sexiest man to ever ride a horse. Common sense tells them to stay away from each other, but their attraction is not to be denied. He gives her a glimpse of what love should be, but just as she starts to trust him, the past comes back to tear them apart.

Join Claire and Cole as they embark on the stormy love affair of a lifetime.

(Oh…and for those of you with husbands/boyfriends, please tell them “you’re welcome” from MJ.)

Synopsis
 .
Readers fell in love with Ben and Alicia’s picture-perfect marriage in BREAK IN TWO, but, for these two, the road to a happy ending hasn’t always been smooth.

Alicia Williams has been in love with Ben Mitchell since he picked her up out of the mud in elementary school. But baseball-obsessed Ben has dreams to make it to the majors and see the world, and those dreams don’t include the girl next door, no matter how perfect she is. Ben is forced to choose and he leaves Alicia behind – but dreams can change and regrets can grow. When Ben returns back home to the ranch in Colorado Springs, trying to re-discover the man he was meant to be, will the girl he can’t get off his mind still be waiting?

Join Ben and Alicia in DON’T LET GO as they fall in love and discover that sometimes life’s greatest adventure is the one you find at home.

Favorite Quotes:

Break In Two:

“Now her goal was to look as good as possible and make Cole sorry he had ever met her.  He would be able to look but not touch, and she intended to make the sight of her hurt.”

“I have to admit one more thing.  I’m a little bit tipsy right now, which is a total faux pas on a first date.  Now you’re going to think I’m a lush as well as easy.”

“I’m guessing you’re used to getting away with being such a patronizing ass since you’re good-looking and rich.”

 

Breaking Love:

“She had books, wine, baths and BOB, her battery-operated boyfriend, to keep her company.  None of them would ever leave the toilet seat up, forget to call when they were out of town or develop a serious drug problem.  She had already gone years without a man, and she preferred to keep it that way.”

“The eternal optimist under the cloak of a jaded pessimist.”

 

Don’t Let Go:

“Let’s go see the doc.   Otherwise you’re going to be holding your spoon sideways to smell your food from now on.”

“Every day I fall a little bit more in love with you and I think, ‘Well, this is the most anyone can love anyone else,’ and then the next day, it’s bigger and more intense.  I want you to know that loving you has been the best adventure of my life.”

 

My Review:

I cannot seem to decide which story to crown as my favorite – each one had elements I like and disfavor.  All were well written with likeable and interesting characters, a generous amount of sensuality, and considerable emotional upheaval.  I am not a big fan of angst, but I am a sucker for epic love, deliciously steamy scenes, and happily ever after endings.  If you like all of those elements, you will be a happy camper with this series.  Each of the two books could be read as stand-alone stories – which I totally appreciate, but the novella may put you at a bit of a loss had you not read the other two.

Meet The Author

MJ Summers currently resides in Canada, not far from the Rocky Mountains, with her husband, three young children and their goofy dog. When she’s not writing romance novels, she loves reading (obviously), snuggling up on the couch with her family for movie night (which would not be complete without lots of popcorn and milkshakes), hiking, Zumba and yoga (to make up for the milkshakes), swimming and camping (with lots of gooey s’mores and hard ciders). She also loves shutting down restaurants once a month with her girlfriends. Well, not literally shutting them down, like calling the health inspector or something. More like just staying until they turn the lights off.
