Synopsis

Jenny Dawson moved to Nashville to write music, not get famous. But when her latest record goes double platinum, Jenny’s suddenly one of the town’s biggest stars—and the center of a tabloid scandal connecting her with a pop star she’s barely even met. With paparazzi tracking her every move, Jenny flees to a remote mansion in Louisiana to write her next album. The only hiccup is the unexpected presence of a brooding young caretaker named Noah, whose foul mouth and snap judgments lead to constant bickering—and serious heat.

Noah really should tell Jenny that he’s Preston Noah Maxwell Walcott, the owner of the estate where the feisty country singer has made her spoiled self at home. But the charade gives Noah a much-needed break from his own troubles, and before long, their verbal sparring is indistinguishable from foreplay. But as sizzling nights give way to quiet pillow talk, Noah begins to realize that Jenny’s almost as complicated as he is. To fit into each other’s lives, they’ll need the courage to face their problems together—before the outside world catches up to them.

To Have It All

By B. N. Toler

Buy: Amazon

9112b-goodreads

Synopsis

Rock bottom.

Liam had set up shop there.

After an accident left him injured and unable to work, it wasn’t long before he ended up on the street with his dreams in the gutter.

This was it.

This was his life.

Until the day he met Max Porter—a man who appeared to have it all. They didn’t meet so much as made eye contact as Max sneered at Liam, the bum occupying precious space on the sullied New York City street.

When Max stepped into oncoming traffic, a lesser man might’ve let him. But Liam risked his life to save Max only to be left to die without a second thought.

When Liam woke up days later, he wasn’t himself…at least he wasn’t in his body.

He was in Max’s.

And with Liam’s body on life support, there was only one logical conclusion: Max was trapped in Liam’s comatose body.

Somehow the twisted hands of fate had given Liam a second chance; a chance to have it all. But with all the perks of Max’s life also came his problems. Finding balance in his new identity was challenged more so once Liam fell for Waverly, Max’s beautiful ex.

Could Liam live out his life as another man or would he pull the plug and let fate decide?

Would he lose his chance at true love?

Would he lose the chance to have it all?

Michel’s Review

Wow… what an extraordinary story!  The blurb for To Have It All by B N Toler captured my attention on release day.  I immediately downloaded it and devoured it in one sitting.  It was unique with extraordinary circumstances that controlled the lives of two very different men.  One man is a good soul in a bad situation.  The other man has everything a person could desire but has carelessly wasted the gifts life has bestowed upon him.  Karma stepped in and changed their lives in a matter of seconds. Liam and Max are bound together in life and death.

Max is trapped inside a dying body while he witnesses another man, Liam, stealing his life.

Liam is trapped inside Max’s gorgeous, fit body that possesses wealth, power, and a blessed life.  Max has carelessly treated these gifts and threw away everything good in his life.  He has treated others very badly and only cared about his own needs.  Being trapped inside Max’s body, a man that is ugly to the core and hated by every person he has had contact with are hard shoes to fill when it goes against Liam’s own morals and ethics.  Trying to live his own life without disrupting Max’s is even worse because Max has everything Liam ever wanted.  He had the love of a good woman that he drove away.  He was blessed with a beautiful child he didn’t want.  Liam knows his time has an expiration date.  He knows his real body is dying. Does he grab onto the gifts in Max’s life for a brief moment or does he proceed as Max would?

Sometimes there isn’t a choice.  Sometimes you have to grab onto life and live it to it’s fullest.  Sometimes you have to reap what you sow.

Only fate knows….

I was floored by the pure beauty of this book.  It was truly an emotional story that had a powerful message.  I have become a huge B.N. Toler fan.  She is an amazing author that reaches deep and touches the soul.

Michel’s Review

Sawyer Bennett created a miracle.  She brought a dead man back to life with the slash of a pen and the imagination of a true storyteller.  A man who has had readers intrigued throughout two different series that are loosely connected.  Even though he wasn’t a major character in either series, his role to each series was a vital part of the story.  When she killed him off in Wicked Bond, I was convinced he was truly dead.  It couldn’t of played out any other way at that moment in time.

Kyle Sommerville infiltrated one of the most violent and corrupt motorcycle gangs in the western part of the country.  For three long years he has been undercover and living amongst murderers.  He has become one of them and has done things that have gone against his morals, his integrity, and his humanity.  He has lost all decency.  It might of been better if he was actually dead after the crimes and horrific acts he has committed.  His life was spared and it’s his job to bring these criminals to justice.  He is the key witness in several federal cases that not only include the men from the MC but also powerful political figures.  His testimony is going to destroy a powerful Senator.

Kyle has made some powerful and dangerous enemies.  There is a price on his head.  He refuses to go into the witness protection program.  He chooses to hide out in a remote town in coastal Maine as a lighthouse keeper.  He never imagined moving to this remote place would give him his humanity and will to live back.  He never imagined he would find a love that he’s never experienced in his life.  First he has to stay alive and testify.

When his past life comes hunting him down he has to make the biggest choice of his life.  Leave all the goodness life has to offer or stay and lose it all.

Sawyer Bennett gave Kyle Sommerville the ending he so richly deserved.  She gave him his humanity back.

Blurb:
Wake up and feel the wood! In the first of a series of irresistible standalone romances from New York Times bestselling author Sawyer Bennett, a city girl rediscovers love and lust in the Alaskan wilderness.

Valentine French may be the sassiest dating columnist in New York City, but the abundance of metrosexuals in her adopted metropolis is seriously cramping her style. Where are the beefy all-American boys? Hoping to find some inspiration, Val heads to Alaska, where the men outnumber the women fifteen to one and wrestle grizzly bears for sport. Or so she can only imagine. Suddenly the most eligible bachelorette in a town full of horny lumberjacks, Val is writing her best columns ever. But if she doesn’t get her nose out of her laptop, she just might miss out on Mr. Right.

Logan Burke is the sheriff of the little podunk town that Val finds so charmingly backward. He’s not that different from the guys she’s using for her little experiment; it’s just that one date would never be enough for Logan. As he listens to Val complain about love over beers in the local tavern, he realizes that she can’t see the forest for the trees. Because if she would ever give up her Prada bags and fourteen-dollar martinis, Logan would give her the only luxury that matters: his heart.

TRAE
It’s a call that changes my life–and my little girl’s. Years ago, playing for the NBA was the dream, but the Seattle Stallions suck. Worse than that, my old teammate is now the star center–not to mention my number one rival. There has to be a catch, some sort of agenda. Before I was injured, I was the best. Now? There’s no way they want me.

But when I see the roster and salaries, it all comes together. It’s a chance to get on the court again and change our lives. And I just can’t wait for the opportunity to finally take him down. What I never counted on is Courtney Cohen being the game changer.

COURTNEY
I inherited the Bad News Bears of the NBA. When I discovered the star center, my ex fiancé, cheating on me, all I want is to jump ship before the whole thing sinks. But with revenge on my mind, I exact a plan. Take down the dirty player and save my father’s dream.

Suddenly twelve minutes is too little time, and a season is not long enough.

Excerpt

“You still afraid of me?” Courtney asks. I push her hair out of her face. “No.” “I’m afraid of you.” “No beer muscles tonight?” I ask, glancing at her empty glasses. She shakes her head. I scoot in closer to her. “Tell me what you’re afraid of.” “Liking you too much,” she says then takes a drink. I turn her in her seat so she’s facing me. “You’re gonna like me even more when I’m inside you.” Her body grows taut. “You can’t say stuff like that. It makes me uncomfortable.” “Well, now I’m going to have to do it more often to get you used to it; make you crave it, beg for it.”

Michel’s Review

I am a huge fan of sports themed romance books. I have read about almost every sport except for basketball.  When I was presented with the opportunity to review Offensive Rebound by MJ Fields, I jumped on it because I knew it would be a new reading experience for me.  While I thoroughly enjoyed the book, liked the characters, and felt the passion, I found a few glitches in the story that held me back from fully investing in it.

Courtney Cohen has inherited the Seattle Stallions Basketball team.  This team is relatively new and the joke of the NBA world.  Her father had purchased the team and built a state of the art arena with the hopes of leaving a legacy behind for her.  Before he could carry out his intentions and build the legacy he passed away from a sudden heart attack.  Courtney was still in college and had no idea how to handle a multi billion dollar business.  She handed the management over to her boyfriend, Brock Boehiem, who was the star player of the Seattle Stallions.  Months later she’s informed that the organization is almost bankrupt and is about to go under.  She is forced to take over the reins.  Upon her arrival she not only finds out that her team has been mismanaged but that her boyfriend is also a lying cheat.  He has a solid contract so she cannot fire him but she can take over the management.

The organization is a complete mess.  She is going to have to rebuild the inner management from the ground up.  She is also going to have to assert her management over the players and the coach.  She is not a member of the good old boys club and is met with defiance, rebellion, and attitude.  She must gain control of the players before the ball is in her court.  The only player cooperating is the new guy, Trae Rhodes.  Trae Rhodes is a washed up college player that was signed by her father before he passed away.  Why would her father bring on a player that isn’t on the same playing level as her team members.

Trae Rhodes is grateful for the opportunity and a chance in the pros.  His life had drastically changed after a college injury that left him unable to play the game he loved.  His life went in a different direction and he had new priorities that outshine basketball.  Playing at a professional level will give him the income he needs and the credibility he needs in the world of basketball.  It is merely a stepping stone in his life.  Becoming a Seattle Stallion will also give him the opportunity to settle an old score with Brock Boehiem, his most hated enemy.  Charlie Cohen signed him on for a reason and it may not be for his playing abilities.

It’s become clear that Courtney Cohen is Brock Boehiem’s achilles heel.  Trae isn’t sure if can use Courtney to settle his score.  He had too much respect for her old man.  He is beginning to immensely respect the powerful woman Courtney Cohen is becoming.

All is not right on the Seattle Stallions playing court.  Courtney and Trae will soon learn there’s a different game being played.  Together they can turn this team around and make it a contender in the NBA world.

I thoroughly enjoyed the romance between Courtney and Trae.  I loved his dedication to the ones he cared about.  I loved his sense of integrity.  I enjoyed watching Courtney grow from a naive young woman to a powerful executive and sensual woman.  The story had a good premise but I struggled with the professional aspects of it.  My logical mind struggled with it.  It takes more than one or two people to handle a multi billion dollar business.  An organization of this magnitude has an army in the office. It takes multi managers, multi departments, micro managers, and a specialized staff.  The players are professionals under contract.  Their careers and lively hood depends upon their performances.  Their performances dictate whether they stay within the professional world of basketball.  In this book the players seemed to have a high school or college mentality that followed the leader rather than relying on their agents and attorneys.  One player had too much control and that would never happen in the world of professional sports.  The same goes for the coaches.  Coaches and players are not involved in the financial aspect of the business other than receiving their earnings and meeting contractual obligations.

I enjoyed this basketball romance and would recommend to other readers.

DEAR AGONY: A NOVEL

Dear Agony,

You’ve been my shadow, following me through childhood—filling my days and nights with terror and uncertainty. You cleverly disguised yourself as some form of pain or suffering as I grew into a young woman. We were unwavering companions … until I severed our ties.

I traded homelessness on the streets of New Orleans for a luxurious bed covered by the finest linens.
I traded dumpster diving for dinner in the finest restaurants.
I traded myself to a stranger—Bastien Pascal.

I have a good life within my platonic and mutually beneficial companionship with Bash.
He’s my friend. My mentor. My roommate.
Until everything changes.

I’m not supposed to get goosebumps when his hand brushes my skin.
I’m not supposed to be eager for his soothing touch following one of my nightmares.
I’m not supposed to think about what might happen if I reached out to him in the darkness.

Falling in love with him? Preposterous . . . unavoidable.

Agony, why are you back with a vengeance to rob me of this life I’ve come to love so dearly?

I’m finally happy. Don’t ruin this for me.

Always yours,
Rose

In this epic love story, Dear Agony forges a connection between an unlikely pair—a beautiful rose entwined in barbed wire and a shipwreck sinking into the darkest depths of the ocean. This agonizing romantic novel poses some gut-wrenching questions: What does a woman do when the man she loves is planning his own demise? And how far will she go to give him something to live for?

excerpt

Bastien wasn’t lying. The man snores. Loudly.

I was awake for hours after he came to my bed. I had far too many thoughts whirling around in my head to doze off.

I’m proprietor of a sadness I hold so tightly, it’s penetrated my very being. It has wrapped itself around my heart in the form of barbed vines, warning people away. I’m buried chest deep in filth—the filth of my vile past. I’m the captain and my pain is forever my first mate.

I wake to find myself held by his strong arms. Encased in his comforting touch. Strangely, even though I’m clinging tightly to the arm wrapped around my waist, I feel . . . safe in the arms of a man. This man. It’s a first for me.

Bastien is still sleeping, his snoring proof he is unaware of our entanglement. I’m glad. I want to savor this close encounter for a while longer before I pull away.

I steal this moment like a thief, permitting myself to study his face and body without his knowledge.

His chest under my head is hard, as is his stomach beneath my hand. There’s sparse hair between his pec muscles but he has a small patch on his abdomen trailing down into the front of his pants.

I gently lift my head so I can see his face. Long, thick, dark lashes rest against his lower lids. Strong, square jawline—covered in dark whiskers, and a few sparse silver here and there, a little thicker this morning than last night. A tiny dimple in the center of his chin. Full, pink lips with a deep cupid’s bow. Straight nose, slightly asymmetrical to the right side of his face. Hmm … I haven’t noticed that until now. I bet it’s been broken. Probably playing football.

Even in sleep, Bastien’s face doesn’t completely relax. His brow remains wrinkled, the shallow crowfeet around his eyes slightly crinkled.

Lines and all, he’s handsome. Extremely so.

And stirring.

I quickly pull away and roll onto my side, my back turned to him before he fully awakens. I don’t want that awkward moment of waking and coming to face to face, forced to discuss what led him to my bed last night.

Minutes later, there’s a brief dip in the mattress and then I hear the soft click of my bedroom door closing.

He’s gone without a word.

I roll to my back and run my hand along the spot where he was lying. Still warm. Scooting closer, I press my nose into his pillow. Mmm. Woodsy. Earthy spice. Masculine.

Savoring the warmth and smell that remains in my bed after Bastien’s departure is something I shouldn’t enjoy … but I do. Very much.

Liking these things isn’t part of our agreement.

Bastien has clearly stated he doesn’t want a romantic relationship. In fact, he’s very much against it, especially with someone my age. And I refuse to ruin what we have. I like him. I think we can be very good friends.
