Summary:

Christian Sanchez never thought he would see Jonah Roberts again. Foster brothers for a short time as teens, Christian developed a massive crush on Jonah, his tough, older roommate. That all ended when the cops came and arrested Jonah, stealing him from Christian’s uncertain world.

Jonah never forgot Christian, even though he cut off all contact with the boy. Jonah knew the kid with the crush on him would be better off forgetting that Jonah ever existed. Jonah stayed in contact with his foster mother Marisol, but refused to hear stories about Christian, and made the woman promise never to tell Christian anything about him.

Upon her death fifteen years later, Marisol leaves a request that Jonah come home and help Christian renovate her house. Jonah can’t refuse, even though he knows he will have to face Christian once again.

Although they haven’t seen each other in years, neither man has forgotten the other. Neither man will deny Marisol her final request…even if it means facing their past, working together, sharing the room they had as teens, getting to know one another now as men, and discovering that the brief friendship they shared has altered into a consuming, abiding love.

Tough-as-nails Rodrigo wants Abby with a passion. Just being near her makes him hard. To hide his desire, Rodrigo trades barbs and challenges everything Abby says. Rodrigo’s secret? Recently, someone else has begun arousing heterosexual Rodrigo’s libido too. Another man. Braden Crenshaw.

Bisexual, Braden has bounced between men and women in affairs that never last. He’s tired of hurting people but has never believed ménage relationships can work…until Abby and Rodrigo make him start aching for something new.

When Abby begins dreaming of her parents’ brutal double murder, the visions unearth new elements that make Abby question everything she thought she knew about the crime. Once Braden and Rodrigo discover the nightmares haunting Abby, they vow to help her find answers to mystery and love whether she wants their assistance or not.

Friday Feature, Interview & Giveaway: Roman Reunion by Crystal Jordan

Please welcome Crystal Jordan to Book Reviews & More by Kathy. For today’s stop on her Roman Reunion tour, Ms. Jordan graciously answered a few “get to know you” questions for us.

Kathy: What book do you recommend everyone should read? Do you have a comfort read?

Crystal: As crazy as it sounds, I’d recommend Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak. Read the book, don’t watch the movie, trust me. That story taught me the power of imagination at a very young age. I still love it every single time I pick it up.

For comfort reads? The Mackenzie series by Linda Howard. I adore those books so much. They make me happy sigh every time open the cover and leave the real world behind.

Kathy: What is your guilty pleasure?

Crystal: Reading! I write so much these days that sneaking a moment in to read a book is such a luxury.

Kathy: Favorite meal?

Crystal: I’m hooked on crêpes lately. There’s a restaurant nearby that serves a savory chicken breast crêpe with mushrooms, roasted almonds, provolone, feta, and pesto. It is to die for. I’m drooling a little just thinking about it. I may need to take myself out to dinner tonight!

Kathy: If you weren’t a writer, what would you be?

Crystal: I’m a librarian by day and I love my work, so I’d definitely still be that. If I were to go wild with it, I’d say I’d be a world explorer. Visiting every continent is on my bucket list, and it looks like I’m ticking another one off my list next summer. My boyfriend and I are headed to Australia! I’m pretty giddy with excitement over it.

Kathy: If you could time travel, what time period would you visit?

Crystal: Regency England, no question. I’d hang out with Jane Austen and visit all my favorite places from her books.

Genre: Contemporary, Romance
Length: Category

Summary:

When in Rome…“I do” as Romans do!

Destination: Desire, Book 3

Karen Patton’s life is falling apart. She signed divorce papers, quit her job, and moved back to her hometown into an apartment that couldn’t feel less like home. With two weeks of free time before she starts work at the Half Moon Bay Public Library, she’s crawling the walls, trying desperately not to miss the man who chose his career over her.

When an old college friend invites her to Italy for an impromptu wedding, she jumps at the chance to focus on something other than her own misery.

Tate Patton is doing his best to ignore the divorce papers that just landed on his desk. A rational, reasonable man would sign and be done with it. Instead, he seizes upon a wedding invitation to do something completely impetuous—ignore the papers and fly to Rome.

When they lay eyes on each other, the sparks fly as hot as the first time they met. Maybe the more mature versions of themselves can fix what’s broken. Their love is too strong not to try…

Product Warnings: Contains intoxicated one-night stands with an almost-ex-husband (which may or may not result in an accidental baby), and sneaking around to hide naughty goings-on from friends. It’s not technically illicit, but delicious fun all the same!

Review: I Want It That Way by Ann Aguirre

want thatTitle: I Want It That Way by Ann Aguirre
2B Trilogy Book One
Publisher: Harlequin HQN
Genre: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
Length: 352 pages
Book Rating: B+

Complimentary Review Copy Provided by Publisher

Summary:

Nadia Conrad has big dreams, and she’s determined to make them come true. But between maintaining her college scholarship and working at the local day care to support herself, dating’s the last thing on her mind. Then she moves into a new apartment and meets the taciturn yet irresistible guy in 1B….

Daniel Tyler has grown up too fast. Becoming a single dad at twenty turned his life upside down—and brought him heartache he can’t risk again. Now, as he raises his four-year-old son while balancing a full-time construction management job and night classes, the last thing he wants is noisy students living in the apartment upstairs. But one night, Nadia’s and Ty’s paths cross, and soon they can’t stay away from each other.

The timing is all wrong—but love happens when it happens. And you can’t know what you truly need until you stand to lose it.

The Review:

I Want It That Way is the delightfully charming first novel in Ann Aguirre’s new adult 2B Trilogy. This engaging series features college roommates and their sometimes rocky road to happily ever after.

I Want It That Way opens with Nadia Conrad and her friends, Lauren, Max and Angus moving from the dorms into a new apartment. Nadia’s interest is immediately piqued by one of the other tenants, Daniel “Ty” Tyler, but he is definitely giving off a “stay away from me” vibe. Not at all put off by his unfriendliness, Nadia soon learns that Ty is a few years older than she is, and he’s juggling work and night classes while raising his four year old son, Sam, on his own (with a lot of help from his parents). She and Ty become friends and their attraction for one another soon spills over into “friends with benefits” territory.

I absolutely adored Nadia and Ty right from the very beginning of I Want It That Way. Nadia is focused on getting her degree and although she always makes time to hang out with her friends, she is serious about her commitment to school and her job. She is sweet and friendly but she is not a pushover. She genuinely cares for her friends and she is quick to offer a shoulder to cry on when they run into problems. Nadia is pretty unflappable and remains friendly and respectful even when someone is behaving like a jerk (cough, Ty, cough :) ). Speaking of Ty, he is wounded by his past and he has a few insecurities but overall, he is a great guy. He is a wonderful father-fiercely devoted and just a tad over protective.  Ty is scarred by how things ended with Sam’s mom, and he has no intention of getting involved in a serious relationship.

I love how Ty and Nadia’s relationship develops over the course of the story. They take the time to get to know one another and Ty reveals things to Nadia that he has never admitted to anyone else. Underlying all of their interactions is a strong sexual tension that both work hard to ignore. They respect one another’s boundaries and they set ground rules when they decide to give into their sexual attraction. Their sex scenes are exquisitely sensual but also very sweet. There is a little bit of an “insta-love” feel from Nadia, but for the most part, the change in their relationship from friends to lovers is believable.

The secondary cast of characters is just as well-developed and likable as Nadia and Ty. Lauren and Nadia have been best friends for most of their lives but an unexpected distance forms between them after their move. Lauren’s story is next and I cannot wait to read it. Their roommate Angus is an absolute doll and although he experiences a relationship crises, everything goes fairly smoothly for him. Poor Max gets his heart broken and I am pretty eager for his book as well.

Although classified as a New Adult romance, I Want It That Way is a wonderful novel that will appeal to readers of all ages. There is very little angst and the characters handle their problems with surprising maturity (most of the time). The plot is refreshing and the characters are engaging, likable and easy to root for. The novel is well-written with a realistic storyline that is quite compelling. All in all, Ann Aguirre’s fabulous 2B Trilogy is off to a strong beginning that will leave fans very impatiently awaiting the next book in the series.

vengeance

Summary:

Bantorus Motorcycle Club Book Seven

Born into Bantorus Motorcycle Club, Lee Ramchett skirts the law, works secretly for the federal government, and kills. As he grows closer to seeking revenge for what the Mexican mafia has done to his family, his supervisor orders him to go back to Bantorus MC to watch over Shari —one of the available and beautiful Silver Girls. In the chaos Shari creates inside of him, he learns his purpose has more to do with washing his hands free of blood than becoming a lifer, and sets out to end the war between Bantorus MC and Los Li for good.

Five years ago, Shari’s Uncle Ted dropped her off in Federal, Idaho to keep her safe after he received threats linking her to Tango, an undercover agent. She works hard to make herself a valuable asset to Bantorus MC, but her charade is compromised when the dangerously troubled nomad biker with more scars and secrets of his own demands her attention. This time, she’s not sure she’ll be able to stay away from the one biker who needs her more than she needs the safety of the club.

—Each novel in the Bantorus MC series features a new couple and a happily ever after—
