We got to meet Cannon in Murphy’s previous books, but that small taste of the sexy footballer just wasn’t enough and I was so excited to hear he was finally going to be in the spotlight. Thinking about you is all about Cannon and his Lady Susanna. Cannon is with his football team in London where they are set to play an exhibition game. In honor of that game they are attending a party where Cannon is crawling out of his skin because he is so uncomfortable there. That is until he meets Lady Susanna and things start to get a lot more interesting.

“You keep looking at me like that and I swear I’ll pop a tent right here in the bar.”

Pretty soon clothes are flying off and what was supposed to be a one nighter for these two turns into four hot days together. They may be polar opposites in some ways but do have a lot of things in common, one of them being their rapidly growing feelings towards one another that neither seen coming. Problem is Cannon is about to head back to the States and Susanna is staying in London. Can a relationship happen for these two when they live on opposite sides of the world? Or are four unforgettable nights all that they will be left with?

“I’m leaving tomorrow. I won’t ever see her again. There’s no reason for me to. Or is there?”

While this was a pretty good read, it just wasn’t all I was hoping for. I loved Cannon and all his sweetness and dirty talking.I also liked Susanna, well for the most part. I did find myself getting annoyed with her at times and I’m not even quite sure why. Sometimes the insta-love works but for me I struggled with it a little in this book. I liked the banter between Cannon and Susanna and I love how much they cared for each other. I am looking forward to the next book in the Forever Yours series.

Excerpt

“I’m thinking about how beautiful you are,” I answer Susanna truthfully. She really is stunning, in that classic, elegant way some women are. She’s just very…refined? Is that the right word? Her cheekbones and jaw are sharp, her nose is straight, her blue eyes are extra bright and her full lips are the color of a classic red rose.

Her cheeks are the color of pink roses, thanks to the compliment I just gave her.

“Thank you. That’s very sweet of you to say,” she murmurs, casting her gaze downward for a brief moment before she lifts her head. “I can’t believe we’re here. Together.”

“Why do you say that?” I feel the same way, but want to hear her reasoning first before I make any confessions.

“You’re not my type,” she blurts, covering her mouth after the words escape for a brief moment before slowly dropping her hand. “Not that there’s anything wrong with you.”

I raise an eyebrow. “Gee, thanks.”

Her cheeks turn redder. “Oh goodness, I’m not trying to insult you, I just—I’m making a mess of this, and I apologize. What I meant to say is…” She takes a deep breath, exhaling loudly before she continues. “You’re not the type of man I normally date, but there’s something good to be said in that.”

She’s not the type I normally go for either, that’s for damn sure. She’s too prim, too proper, too sweet. “Like what?”

“There’s nothing wrong with trying something a little different sometimes. Clearly who I’ve been dating in the past hasn’t worked, since I’m still single,” she says with a self-depreciating laugh.

“I thought Dickie was your ex-boyfriend,” I point out with a wince. That is the damn worst name on the planet, I swear.

“Oh, it was never too serious with Dickie.” She waves a hand. Laughs again. “That was a long time ago, though.”

“How long?”

“I don’t know. Six months? Nine?” She tilts her head, as if she’s quietly counting back the months. “Eight months, actually. During the winter. He told me I was a bright light on a cold, dreary day once. That was nice.”

For some godforsaken reason, jealousy rises within me, making me clench my fists in my lap. “I guess he’s a goddamned poet.”

I would never think to say something like that to a woman. I’m not one to say a bunch of flowery nonsense to get between a woman’s legs. I’m a little more direct.

She seems startled by my response. “Oh, he wasn’t a poet. Not at all. That was probably the nicest thing he ever said to me while we dated.”

Huh. Well, I guess that makes me feel a little better, but not much.

And why the hell do I care what her ex-boyfriend said to her? This is a one-shot deal. I’ll take her to dinner, hopefully kiss her a little bit in the back of an Uber, maybe even feel her up a little bit too, and then we’re done. I’ll play my game tomorrow, we’ll win because that’s what we do, and then head back home.

End of story.

The server returns to the table with our drinks, making an elaborate show of popping the cork on the bottle of Veuve Clicquot before pouring us each a glass. I didn’t want any champagne, but when Susanna lifts her glass toward me in a toast, I grab mine and clink our glasses together.

“To new friends,” she says, smiling prettily.

“New friends,” I agree, downing most of the champagne in one swallow.

Buried by Brenda Rothert


Book Blurb

Do you believe in fate?

I didn’t. I’d worked since childhood to become an NFL starting quarterback. All the blood, sweat, and tears were about to pay off with my name in the record books. Setting an NFL record was going to be the crowning achievement of my career. Hell, of my life.

But then fate, the cagey bitch, threw me a curveball I never saw coming. I ended up trapped in a doomsday bunker with four strangers, my chances at that record slipping away as days turned into months.

I never would’ve given Erin a second look. She was gorgeous, sure, but not my type. I liked women who were strong. Fearless. Resilient. Not to mention that she hated me.

But I was so wrong about her. And in that bunker, I fell in crazy, stupid love.

I thought a record would be my greatest triumph. But now, all I want is a shot with Erin. I’ve faced down massive linebackers intent on ending me. For her, I’ll go toe-to-toe with fate.

I will say the blurb was quite intriguing but I don’t know if that what it ended up being. Like the blurb says, yes, people are trapped in an underground doomsday bunker and the people range from the person who built it, Derek – a super rich, super talented NFL player, and a variety of other people who all seem to have issues. One ends up being Erin who has issues of claustrophobia. One of the characters has medical issues and another may have had something to do with their predicament.

Secrets are revealed and there is a twist in the book – It’s sprung upon you and you’re waiting for it to develop and it left me wondering, what? Well now what happens? Is there another epilogue? Another book? Nothing. It would have been a good twist if it had been expanded on it more and it played out to let you know how this great twist is tied up.

This book was just ok for me unfortunately but I’m glad other people loved it so much.

Excerpt

I sigh softly, willing my heart to stop jackhammering in my chest, and walk over to the large, opened steel door in the ground.

Kenna white knuckles the black steel ladder that leads straight down, scrambling to get her heels situated. I wonder again why she’s wearing a business suit and heels out here.

“Do you work here?” I ask her.

She gives me a sharp look. “I’m Derek’s personal assistant.”

“Oh, got it. And he must be the football player who owns the place?”

Kenna gawks at me in disbelief. “You don’t know who Derek Heaton is?”

I shrug. “Isn’t he a football player?”

“He’s the best quarterback in the league. Also the highest paid.”

“Huh. Well, good for him,” I say dismissively.

Kenna shrieks as one of her feet slips on the metal ladder.

“You okay?” I ask her.

“I’m fine.”

I peer down into the dark hole, trying to think about anything other than going down there. Even after years of therapy, the panic is so strong I want to run away.

Just make it about the groceries, I tell myself. Think about getting the delivery where it needs to go as quickly as possible. You can do this.

I take a deep breath and then follow Kenna down the ladder. I start sweating immediately as my self-preservation instincts kick in. But I ignore it, descending the ladder to a small landing and then taking a staircase the rest of the way down.

For a moment, my fear is forgotten. The bunker is nothing like I was expecting. It’s open and expansive, the kitchen done with stainless appliances and warm wood cabinets. The floors are also wood, and there’s a large leather sectional in a living area.

“This way,” Kenna says, motioning impatiently from in front of a doorway.

I tear myself away from looking at the rich, slightly rustic décor and join her in a large white room. Fluorescent lights glow overhead, illuminating walls lined with shelves. About half the shelves are filled with supplies ranging from toilet paper to giant containers of tapioca pudding.

“Right here,” Kenna says, grabbing a clipboard and glancing down at it.

She stands in front of an empty section of shelves. I wait a couple seconds as she reads something on her list, but then I can’t take it anymore. I refuse to be down here for one minute longer than I have to.

“I’ll go get my first load,” I say, turning.

“I need it shelved in groups,” she says as I depart the room. “Keep all the peanut butter together, all the trail mix together, and so on. And make sure you fill the entire shelf all the way to the back.”

“Okay,” I call over my shoulder.

I hear male voices from somewhere in the bunker, but I ignore them, practically sprinting to the stairs out of this death trap hole in the ground.

When I get to the truck, I stuff my backpack with as much of the supplies it back hold, then grab another box to carry in my arms. Surveying the flatbed load, I realize it’s going to take at least twenty trips to get all this into the supply room.

Just great. I have to make myself go down that ladder over and over again.

As I reach the end of the stairs, I see three men in the living room area of the bunker. One is kneeling by the floor, looking at something. The other two are talking.

One of the two looks pretty young, maybe college-aged. His skin is deeply tanned and his hair is hidden beneath a baseball hat. The other one looks like a young Russell Crowe, very tall and all muscles and chiseled jaw line. He’s wearing shorts and a plain gray t-shirt.

He has to be the football player. He’s got arrogant pro athlete written all over him, from his biceps straining the sleeves of his shirt to his perfect smile.

Whitney and Lincoln have finally decided that they are going to be together…no matter what. Their plan doesn’t go quite as smoothly as they hoped. Family, old acquaintances and jealous rivals will give it their all to keep them apart. But this time, Whitney and Lincoln are willing to sacrifice everything to stay together and protect those they love.

“This is my chance to prove that I can stand at his side and show the world we’re stronger together. Our first test starts now.”

Wow! This trilogy is the twistiest and most shocking yet. Everything I was positive would happen just ended up in a completely different direction. My jaw literally dropped. All I will say is that Lincoln and Whitney and their crazy families take us for a ride that made this story a page turner I couldn’t put down until the very last word.

This is one of the most drama filled stories I’ve read in quite a while. I could never quite guess what these characters would do because they never behaved in a logical manner. All of them were batshit crazy…I’m telling ya.

First and foremost I want to go ahead and get out there that this series was extremely well written! However I just didn’t connect with the characters well at all. The story wasn’t bad. I liked the general idea of it. Just a major disconnect from the character for me. So many questions are answered in this book from the two previous. Some answers I wasn’t surprised about and some I was. Definitely didn’t expect the story to go the way it did. Super high angst that had me flipping the pages to see what happened. I felt as though the major conflicts throughout all the books were wrapped up quickly. Probably could have done with a little less drama and a little more heat. All in all it wasn’t a bad read. Just not my personal favorite by March.

First off I am still at a loss for word on this series so far. I don’t know if I love it or not. Honestly I’m having trouble relating to the characters and finding some common ground there. Lincoln has redeemed himself a little and I’m really starting to like him a lot more. But the flighty Whitney is killing me a bit. I like her. But her determination to want to run when one thing goes wrong is getting to be a bit much. I want to scream at her to own it and work with it. She’s not the only one with a rough past.

Overall it was very well written and I enjoyed the flow of the story. Still deeply interested to see what happens in the final book. There are some major bombs coming up and I am soooooo excited to see if my suspicions are true. Lincoln just might win my heart after all!

Lincoln Riscoff has made up his mind. He’s going to convince Whitney Gable that they belong together this time around…family be damned. But things aren’t always smooth sailing and will these two be able to make it past trouble and then more trouble?

“My heart is an island, completely disconnected from the world and anything that might hurt it. I know how to seduce. I know how to fuck. I know how to redirect the focus, the pleasure, and all thought to anyone’s emotional damage but my own.”

I have to say this trilogy reminds me of a soap opera. Like Dallas or something. It’s one bump after another for Lincoln and Whitney. Sometimes I just couldn’t figure out what would motivate a person to act the way they do. Lincoln does start to man up and try to stand up for what he wants and he wants Whitney. Whitney though…she tries to talk herself into being stronger and I really was rooting for her. But she just can’t seem to decide what she wants. I was about to lose my mind. There is so much going on in this story that I really need the third book to figure out what I feel about this entire story/situation!

If you love drama and when I say drama…I’m talking soap opera type of shows and crazy followed by more crazy…you will love this trilogy. The antics never stop and you seriously will never believe what happens next.

Growing up, Tate Prescott was just my older brother’s best friend, but over the years he became my first love… and my biggest secret.

Yes, you read that right…Tate Prescott, The Tate Prescott, Hollywood Superstar and now the most sought after movie director in the industry is mine. We’ve hidden our relationship from the world for so long that it’s become second nature. The last thing we wanted was a media frenzy to rain down on us.

Four months have passed since then, and now Tate’s back in town, demanding that I give him thirty days to make our relationship work.

All I want is to forget about the mistake we made the weekend my brother died.

Only Tate’s not so easily deterred and he’s not just some big talking man from Hollywood—he’s my husband, and he wants a second chance to prove to me that he can win back my heart.

This is the second book in the Kings of Castle series and though it says it can be read as a standalone, I kind of wish I read the first book because I felt a little lost and at times confused during this book. I’m not sure if it’s because I missed something in the first book or if it’s just the way the story played out for me.

Quinn’s Kings family just suffered a great tragedy and the person she should be able to lean on to help her navigate through her grief isn’t there for her. Nope he up and left for months when she needed him most. So Quinn is attempting to close her life off from the only man she ever loved and move on. Problem is Tate isn’t just some guy, he is her secret husband and when he shows back up in Castle Beach asking for a second chance what’s a girl to do?

“Don’t close yourself off to love. That would be denying yourself life.”

Tate Prescott Hollywood superstar turned famous producer knows he made a mistake when he left Quinn four months ago. But now he is back and wants thirty days to change her mind about ending their relationship, well marriage. He has loved her for as long as he can remember, she was his best friend’s sister-turned lover and they married in secret to keep her safe and out of the spotlight. Now Tate wants her back and will do anything to keep Quinn in his life.

“I’ll be your anchor in this storm called life.”

Ok, so I really loved Tate, he owned up to the fact that he made a huge mistake and over and over tried to prove his love for Quinn and win her back. He was sweet and tried to give her the space she needed but was always there waiting in the wings to show her his support. Now Quinn I really struggled with. I just couldn’t connect with her and at times she just drove me nuts. I liked the book, I just had a hard time through parts of it and with Quinn. I think I will go back and give the first book in the series a try.

Excerpt

“I’d rather you drop off the face of the earth. Oh wait, you already did that… At least we can agree you are a fool.”

Guilt surges, hitting me square in the chest. “I’m guilty, but I’d like the chance to tell you my side of the story.”

Those silver orbs of hers shift away, as if the memory of what I’d done hurts too much. “I don’t see why you can’t share on the way to town instead of at dinner tomorrow.”

“Because it’s going to take a hell of a lot longer than twenty minutes, Quinn, and you already agreed. Don’t go back on your word.”

“I’m a King. We don’t play those kind of bullshit games with people.”

I stride to my car, opening the passenger side door. “Grab your keys and whatever else, and get in.”

She stands there for a moment, a proud, gorgeous vision of a woman. My mouth goes dry. She radiates power and vulnerability, a true juxtaposition.

But that’s Quinn.

That’s one of the reasons I fell in love with her. It’s also why I can’t let her have the upper hand in this. “I want to renegotiate.”

“What?” she says, clearly annoyed. “You don’t want to have dinner with me?”

“Oh, I do, but I want it to be the first date of many for the next month.”

“The next month?”

My grip tightens on the steering wheel, and I force myself to loosen it. “I want your word now, Quinn. I want you to agree to give our marriage a shot over the next thirty days. I’m all in. I want you to be, too.”

“Just like that.” She snaps her fingers.

“Absolutely.” I sneak a glance at her. She’s regarding me with anger, confusion, and another emotion that I’m certain is hope contorting her face. “I dare you to take me on.”

Her lips purse, brows rising. “I dare you to win me back. If you don’t, you’ll sign the divorce papers.”

“Challenge accepted. “At the next light, we shake hands.

This was a super quick read. As the blurb states a young girl has been lusting after her boyfriend’s father who is a hot, alpha type and also a doctor. A trauma surgeon to be exact. She has had more then a few fantasies about the doctor but has always pushed them out of her head. Why? Well, it’s her boyfriend’s dad and he is so much older then her. (Insert eye roll).

Until now, she breaks up with her boyfriend Preston and has no reason to not cross that line with his father Greg. Hmmm…not really sure how I felt about this whole storyline. It was a tad far fetched for me and the story didn’t flow great and the ending wasn’t very believable in my opinion. While the sex scenes were pretty hot, I couldn’t get out of my head it was with a guy 20 years her senior. Not really my cup of tea but may be yours. I guess I’m just not into the Daddy genre.

Richer Than Sin by Meghan March ~ Review Blitz w/ Dual Reviews by Robin and Lindsey

 

From New York Times bestselling author Meghan March comes a brand new saga of forbidden love and second chances.

A Riscoff and a Gable can never live happily ever after. Our family feud is the stuff of legends.

Ten years ago, Whitney Gable caught me off guard with her long legs and grab-you-by-the-balls blue eyes.

I didn’t know or care what her name was.

Like any Riscoff worth the family name, I went after what I wanted. We burned like a flash fire until she married another man.

She hates me, and she should.

I objected on her wedding day.

Now she’s home, with those same long legs and man-eater stare, but there’s no ring on her finger.

They say a Riscoff and a Gable can never live happily ever after . . . but I’m not done with Whitney Gable.

I’ll never be done with her.

Riscoffs and Gables just can’t be together. They are like oil and water and this family feud dates back for over a century. But when Whitney Gable caught Lincoln Riscoff’s eye…they lit the sheets on fire. They promised they would stay with each other despite the obstacles but then she married her ex-boyfriend. But now she’s back. And Lincoln isn’t quite done with her.

“…why was I even tiptoeing toward the grand staircase to meet him?

Because I’m dick-struck. That was all. It was good sex. Great sex. I was hooked on what he could do in bed. I nodded my head like I was agreeing with myself when I knew it was all bullshit. I was getting in too deep. I felt things I shouldn’t feel.”

I love a good ol’ fashion family feud. And I loved the girl Lincoln first met. Whitney was a spitfire. But then she changed. And I missed her feistiness. She’s known for being the strong one in her family but I didn’t feel that and it made me sad. And Lincoln…don’t get me started. I loved that he was going to stand up to his family and be with the woman he loved. But then he sort of drove me a bit crazy too. It was maddening. I still have high hopes that these two characters work out their kinks for me. I love the premise and am counting down to see what happens in book two. I have so many theories over what’s going on. I love a good conspiracy too so I’ve spun some farfetched ideas in my head. Just throwing them around in my brain.

Everything that Meghan March writes I just love so I know as this trilogy unfolds I’m going to get sucked right in so hard it hurts. I want to see Lincoln and Whitney just say nah nah boo boo to their families and kick butt and take names.

To be honest up front and have full disclosure, I’m still on the fence with this book. Extremely well written. Great flow of the story. I just had a hard time relating to the main characters. The secondary ones had me more in my feels than the hero and heroine. But, I think that’s just because it felt very Hatfield and McCoy to me. So much tension and things unfolding with the past that I was like dang, there’s MORE!? I know its supposed to be more modern day Romeo and Juliette, I just didn’t get that vibe yet. That ending though! I was seriously like WTF!? I knew there was a twist coming but wasn’t expecting that in the least. Definitely need to know what happens next and hopefully I can find a connection with the characters a little better.

Overall it was a good read and had me wondering what was to come. Which is always good! I look forward to more.

Guilty until proven innocent.

That’s the way the world works, right?

I’m tired of being convicted without evidence, all because my last name is Gable.

The Riscoffs might own this town, but I’m done following their rules.

If only I could forget just how easily Lincoln Riscoff can drag me under his spell.

Whitney Gable is the kind of woman you fight to the death to protect.

To keep.

To cherish.

I’ve finally learned my lesson, and it’s time to prove I’m the man who’s worthy of her.

I don’t care what it takes, because failure is not an option.

No matter who or what stands in our way—this time, she’ll be mine forever
