When I finished reading CHASING I DO, gave a delightful sigh and had a happy heart!
The story line is filled with enough drama to keep you engaged and emotions so romantic and heartfelt that you’ll be swooning and rooting for Gage and Darcy. I even cried in a couple of passages, good tears.
Gage Easton is not only fun, handsome and sexy, but he’s also a romantic. He swept me away from his first encounter with Darcy to the end. He’s a charming and good-guy kind of hero.
Darcy Kincaid is a single mother who loves and cherishes her four year old daughter, Kylie. She’ll do anything to protect her precious child who is quite a darling. Kylie will captivate your heart!
Fancy, a mischievous Pomeranian pup is quite the troublemaker; you’ll love him, too.
I’ve been reading and listening to Sandra Owens’s books and audiobooks since I discovered her when she launched Book 2, Someone Like Her. I fell for Jake (Romeo) Buchanan hard. I remember feeling those butterflies in my belly, swooning as I read the first half of the story. Maria, who is the “little sister” of his boss from K2 Team, and is off limits to everyone. She’s also in search of her father who abandoned her, and she hopes she can find him to answer questions, but when she does, she’s in for a surprise, and asks Jake to help her. Maria’s little secret is that she’s always had a crush on Jake, so that just complicates things for the two.
Where to begin…There are so many things I love about this story. From the correspondence between Randolph and Lavinia, to their many encounters, which were so beautifully written. At times, I felt as if I were there, holding my breath during suspenseful scenes and swooning over romantic moments. I even chuckled with some of Lavinia’s occurrences. Lavinia Montgomery was in a carriage accident that killed her parents. She suffered injuries, but can walk again and is ready to dance at her societal debut. This story had unexpected twists and turns which kept me engrossed until the very end.
Wait! If you are a conservative romance reader, do not let this sexy book cover deter you from reading this awesome story. I almost passed it up, thinking this was a steamy read. It’s so much more. Yes, Matt looks like the guy, but quite frankly the cover does not accurately represent what this story is really about. It’s realistic, with drama, about family, and oh, so romantic! I was absolutely captivated by Matt and Abby’s story.
It amazes me how authors like Kristan Higgins, can string words together and create a world full of excitement and laughter, then blend in the realities of life, with drama, concern and sorrow, yet filled with so much pure love, and others so superficial. How in a matter of 8-11 hrs, you can be whisked away into the character’s lives, which can span from days to weeks or months, even years, making you feel a part of their journey, laughing one minute, then crying the next.
Every time I finish a book by Kristan Higgins, it just lightens my heart. I’m engaged and find myself thinking of things to say to the characters, rooting for them during hard times, as if they were real.
I’ve had my eye on the handsome and charming Jackson since the St. James series began. I noticed the warning signs of a problem with Jackson in Worth The Wait and gradually saw him spiral downhill in Worth The Trouble. He thought he didn’t have a drinking problem, mainly to numb his troubles. But as his life becomes affected by his actions, he now faces a lawsuit and also the growing concern of his loving family.
In Worth The Risk, Jackson is headed to Vermont for six weeks to clear his mind, get his life back on track, and work on remaining sober with the help of counseling.
If you haven’t read the first two books in the series, this is just enough for you to know how this story begins. It stands alone fine, but I do hope you read David and Cat’s stories, which I enjoyed as well.
A CHANGE OF HEART is filled with all kinds of heart. This deeply emotional story begins with heartache, as Dr. Nikhil ‘Nic’ Joshi continues to struggle with the loss of his wife, Jen, who was murdered. Nic’sheartbreak is palpable throughout the beginning of the story, as only Sonali Dev can pour such feelings onto the page.
Jess Koirala will do anything in a heartbeat to protect her son, even if she risks hurting Nic’s heart to keep her precious child from harm. There are also heartless characters who pressure Jess to complete a mission, adding mystery and suspense throughout the story.
