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.

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?

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?

Seven Brides for Seven Cowboys #3
By Lizbeth Selvig
Once comfortable on stage in front of thousands, Joely
Crockett is now mortified at the thought of walking—or rolling—down the aisle at her sisters’ wedding. Scarred and wheelchair-bound, the former beauty queen has lost more than the ability to walk—she’s lost her fire. But when one
handsome, arrogant guest accuses her of milking her injuries and ignites her ire, Joely finally starts to feel truly alive again, and soon it’s impossible for her to resist her heart’s desire.
 
Alec Morrissey knows a little something about loss. A
famous rodeo cowboy before he was injured in Iraq, he’s managed to create something of a normal life, even if it’s not the one he always imagined.  Encountering stunning but damaged Joely, he sees a kindred spirit who can learn
from his mistakes.
 
As these two healing souls begin to fall in love under
the Wyoming stars, they must discover if they are willing to give in to the tragedies of life or fight for a future together.

The Bride Wore Starlight (Seven Brides for Seven Cowboys, #3)The Bride Wore Starlight by Lizbeth Selvig

My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars

I thought this would be a cute bit of fluff, a fun wedding romance, but it turned out to be a wonderfully emotional story about love and loss and overcoming huge physical obstacles. I liked that Alec and Joely’s characters were both complex and well developed and they got to know each other really well before a physical relationship developed. And the book cover is pretty gorgeous, too!

Joely Crockett and Alec Morrissey meet each other at her sisters’ double wedding. She’s the matron of honor, not quite divorced from a cheating husband who abandoned her after a horrific car accident. She’s been in assisted living, not wanting to be a burden to her family, petrified to try to move on with her life. Alec is a former rodeo champion who enlisted in the service with his cousin after 9/11 and is standing up for one of the grooms.

At first Joely just finds Alec annoying because he keeps pushing her to do things she’s frightened of, like taking some steps on her own or dancing with him at the wedding without making a huge spectacle of herself. And he thinks that she’s drowning in self-pity and he’s just the person to throw her a life preserver!

As they spend time together after the wedding, Alec tries to show her just how alike they are and how much he’s recovered since losing a leg to an IED while in Iraq.  But need having a hard time admitting even to himself that there are still some emotional issues that he can’t overcome on his own.  A nicely inspiring HEA just in time for Valentine’s Day!

I received this book as an ARC from Edelweiss.

Clementine Daly knows she’s the black sheep. Her wealthy,
powerful family has watched her very closely since she almost got caught in an
embarrassing scandal a few years ago. So when Clementine’s sent on a mission to
live up to the Daly name, politely declining isn’t an option. Of course, the
last thing she does before boarding the plane is to grab a stranger’s phone by
mistake—leaving the hunky journalist with her phone. Soon his sexy voice is on the
line, but he doesn’t know her real name, or her famous pedigree—which is just
the way Clementine likes it.
 
Despite all the hassles, Justin Mueller is intrigued to
realize that the beautiful brown-eyed girl he met at the airport is suddenly at
his fingertips. They agree to exchange phones when they’re both back in town,
but after a week of flirty texts and wonderfully intimate conversations, Justin
doesn’t want to let her go. The only problem? It turns out that Clemetine has
been lying to him about, well, everything. Except for the one thing two people
can’t fake, the only thing that matters: The heat between them is for real.

Call Me, MaybeCall Me, Maybe by Ellie CahillMy rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a sexy and smart book based on the improbable premise that two people sitting near each other at the airport could accidentally pick up each other’s phones and not discover the error until they land at their destinations. Then, instead of just overnighting the phones, they agree to relay messages to each other for a week until they both return home and can exchange the phones in person.

Beautiful but socially awkward heiress Clementine Daly ends up in California with writer Justin Mueller’s phone, while he’s in Florida with hers.  When Justin finds he has the wrong phone, he frantically calls and leaves messages until Clementine calls him back. They talk and have some wonderfully witty and increasingly intimate conversations while passing messages back and forth. Clementine is fascinated with his voice and picture and even the playlist on his phone and Justin feels the same about her.

But Clementine had a horrible experience naively sexting with a boyfriend when she was a teenager that brought embarrassment and even blackmail to her society family and she’s been lectured to about the dangers of oversharing. So she doesn’t tell Justin the truth about her name or how she can pay her rent or even what she does for a living — until it all blows up in her face and she’s left trying to explain…

I really liked this breezy and fun new adult book that has some interesting thoughts on our huge dependency on our cellphones and the possible dangers of social media. Although it’s a bit of a fairytale, the adorably awkward heroine, an almost too-good-to-be true hero and some really smart and witty dialogue made the whole book an enjoyable read for me.

I received this book as an ARC from NetGalley.
