But when she’s taken hostage during a trip to the Dry Tortugas, the men of Deep Six Salvage drop their treasure hunt for a sunken galleon and embark on a dangerous mission to save Maddy.

 

WITH EARTH-SHATTERING REPERCUSSIONS

As they fight her merciless kidnappers, they discover this isn’t a simple hostage situation, but something far more sinister. Passion boils between Bran and Maddy, but what good is putting their hearts on the line if they don’t survive the dawn?

Into the Whirlwind (BOSS, Inc. #2)Into the Whirlwind by Kat Martin

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A sexy, suspenseful read by one of my favorite authors!  This is Dirk and Megan’s story, which began in the first book in the B.O.S.S., Inc. series, Into the Fury.  You can find a review of that book here.  Dirk was Meg’s former bodyguard when she modeled. They had a brief and heated affair, but Meg abruptly broke off the romance because Dirk’s free-wheeling and dangerous life style wasn’t exactly compatible with the life of a single mom to a three year old boy, Charlie.

But when her son Charlie disappears and the kidnappers demand $10 million ransom and no police involvement, Meg can’t think of anyone better than Dirk to turn to for help.  And when she approaches him, Dirk wouldn’t think of refusing to help get her little boy back, even though being around Meg is painful.

The story is filled with intriguing twists and turns as Dirk and his friend Luke Brodie, along with Meg and her wealthy father, try to figure out the reason that Charlie was targeted. Is it some sort of vendetta against Meg’s father and his business or something even more sinister?

And in the middle of all this intrigue, Dirk and Meg find they can’t be around each other very long  before sparks ignite and burst into flame. But what are the chances that they could have a real relationship?  Even though it’s book number two in the series, it works just fine as a stand alone read.

I received this book as an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Hold your Breath…

Hold Your Breath (Search and Rescue, #1)Hold Your Breath by Katie Ruggle

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Today’s new release is an action-packed and suspense-filled mystery and romance that finds Lou Sparks as the newest diver in a remote Rocky Mountain town’s search and rescue operation. Lou moved across the country, far from her controlling family and an annoying ex and is planning to immerse herself in her new job. While she’s training hard and trying to fit in with the team, it seems that every time she slips up, it’s in front of her handsome but stoic boss, Callum Cook, who hardly ever smiles and certainly not at her.  We first met Lou and Callum in the introductory novella to this series, On His Watch.  You can find my review here.

But then Lou discovers a corpse during a diving exercise and is anxious to help local authorities solve the riddle of his identity. Staid Callum, with his cautious personality and OCD tendencies, reluctantly agrees to help, if only to keep Lou out of trouble. When it soon becomes apparent that Lou is being stalked and the stalking incidents escalate, Callum is forced to admit his attraction to his new recruit and his need to be the one to see that she is safe.

The cat and mouse game continues and Lou, Callum and local authorities try to figure out who would want to harm her and how it’s connected to the murder she uncovered. It’s a fast-paced, suspenseful read with some twists and turns along the way.

I received this book as an advanced copy from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Truly, Madly, Sweetly…

Truly, Madly, Sweetly (Sweet Love, #1)Truly, Madly, Sweetly by Kira Archer

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This new release is a quick, cute read about a young woman who owns and operates a cupcake business out of a food truck and is saving to buy her own bakery. She’s crushing over a gorgeous guy who buys gelato from the truck next to her everyday and finally literally “falls for him,” getting chocolate all over his expensive shirt.

Their lives are suddenly intertwined when it turns out that Natalie’s neighbor was Eric’s grandmother and left him her building and Natalie the garage where she can park her truck. And rather than sell the building, Eric decides to give up his job and not work with his wealthy family and open a bakery in the building, even though he has no baking experience whatsoever. So Nat and gorgeous guy Eric work out a deal where he lets her use his kitchen to do her baking and she will teach him to bake and start a bakery business in the building she really wanted to buy.

But just when things are well between the two of them, Eric’s family interferes and misunderstandings ensue, but it’s a romance, people, so you know things will work out, right?

I received a copy of this from the publisher through NetGalley to review.

New York’s Finest #3
Lauren Layne
Releasing on March 29th, 2016
Forever: Grand Central

 

 

Vincent knows he’s not the most charming of the Moretti brothers. He prefers brooding to flirting, reading to talking, and he sure as hell isn’t about to give into his mother’s insistence that he ‘settle down with a nice girl.’ Luckily, Vincent’s gig as one of the NYPD’s top homicide detectives keeps him busy. As does his long-time partner, Jill Henley–a tough-as-nails cop with the face of an angel and smart mouth that makes Vincent crazy in all the worst ways.

 

After six years of working the homicide beat with the tight-lipped Vincent Moretti, Jill figure she knows him better than anyone. Which is not at all. But when their most recent case points to a potential serial-killer situation, the higher-ups send them on a rare
undercover mission to a place no NYPD officer dares go: the Upper Eastside.

 

Now the bureau’s most antagonistic set of partners is posing as Mr.and Mrs. Brooks of Park Avenue. Spending 24/7 in the suspect’s territory brings them closer and closer to their killer . . .
and closer to each other. Soon Vincent and Jill are playing good cop/bad cop in and out of bed, and Jill’s falling hard. But can she convince Vincent to give her a shot as partner in life, as well as at the bureau?

Excerpt-Banner

 

One never really realized how much New York City got under your skin until you left it for a while.

It was like one minute New York was your adopted home—a little bit intense, a lot scary.

And the next, you were holding your breath as your plane landed, your entire body on edge with the anticipation of being home again.

Jill Henley smiled as the plane touched down, her eyes closing just for a moment at the realization that she’d be sleeping in her own bed tonight. Going back to her job tomorrow. Eating at her favorite gyros place tomorrow.

But none of that—not the city, nor her pillow-top bed, nor the really freaking amazing gyros—were as important as who awaited her.

The Morettis.

Jill loved her mother desperately—it was the reason she’d spent the past three months in Florida taking care of her.

But the Moretti family had become every bit as much family to Jill as her own mom.

She couldn’t wait to see them again.

All of them.

Okay, so maybe there was one Moretti in particular whom she was especially excited to see.

Not that the excitement was mutual.

As she walked through JFK toward baggage claim, she couldn’t figure out for the life of her why she was even the tiniest bit disappointed about the fact that Vincent Moretti wouldn’t be the one picking her up from the airport.

She hadn’t even asked him. He might have said yes. Maybe. But it would have been done with a grunt and a grumble, and probably a lecture about how his workload was double because his partner had “up and ditched him.”

Besides, it made more sense for Elena to pick her up anyway.

Not only was Elena her best friend, but Elena was an attorney at a fancy-pants law firm, with access to a company car that was a hell of a lot nicer than Vin’s car and didn’t smell like old coffee.

Plus, Jill had news.

Big news.

The biggest.

The kind of news that female friends squealed over in the appropriate, gushing manner.

So why was she so nervous?
