Healing Storms  
(A standalone within a series)

by: Lynn Burke

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Healing Storms is hot and emotional, it really contains the whole package for a MMF story.

Healing Storms contained a lot more heart and emotion than I was expecting. At the very soul of the story it was about a two broken men who lost a wife and daughter and a sister and niece in the same tragic accident. It is also about a healing woman who is rebuilding her life after years of abuse and trying to find herself now that she is finally free.  Kane, Charley, and Jill all have damage, but together can they move past it and all heal together?

Right from the first chapter Healing Storms will grip you from the get go. Kane and Charley have a history that goes way back, but they have never acted on their feelings and it takes a woman, Jill, who recognizes heartache to bring them together for the first time. She recognizes the same brokenness in herself and is drawn to both men, but she also is torn between wanting them or just being the bridge between what they have both denied themselves for years. How do you know if you are just a temporary need or could be a permanent solution?

Lynn Burke is a new author for me, and again, I was pleasantly surprised by how much emotion was contained within this book along with all the passion she fit in. I will definitely revisit more of her books in the future.

Synopsis:

One stormy night breaks Kane Austin. Moving deeper into the Pennsylvania woods doesn’t heal the heartache of his tragic loss, nor does it offer the peace he longs for. He certainly can’t bear the thought of loving again.

Charley Woodhill blames himself for his sister’s and niece’s deaths. He feels he doesn’t deserve Kane’s forgiveness, and especially not his love, but that doesn’t keep him from watching over his best friend from afar, coveting what he can never have.

Determined to live a quiet life, Jill Walters isn’t looking for a man or complications. But flames of desire bright as a lightning strike can’t be denied, and the consequences of falling for not just one but two men shakes her unstable foundation.

Will Kane let go of the ghosts from his past? Can Charley find the strength to share the man he’s longed for since childhood? Or will Jill choose for them and flee to keep the two men safe?

Review – Kiss My Cupcake by Helena Hunting

Kiss My Cupcake 
(A standalone)

by: Helena Hunting

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A deliciously  good read! Helena Hunting combined sweets and spirits into the perfect enemies-to-lovers summer romance.

While Blaire’s new business, Buttercream and Booze, caters to a more upscale clientele with cupcakes, martinis and mixed drinks. Ronan’s pub located right next door, The Knight Cap, sells on tap beer, wings, and offers axe throwing for your nightly entertainment. Even though these two get off on the wrong foot and begin as enemies it doesn’t take long to realize that working together and planning coordinated events actually might help them achieve the same goal.

Helena has covered Kiss My Cupcake in sweet buttercream…okay she really just covered all the bases and made this book extra fun to read. Between crazy family members which will make you chuckle, delicious treats that totally made me crave everything in my kitchen, fantastic chemistry between the two main characters, and not to mention plaid – yes, I even wanted to dress the hubby up in everything plaid while I was reading. Hunting brings all the magic to this fun, very unputadownable read.

Kiss My Cupcake is a total win to add to your collection!

Synopsis:

As two neighborhood shop owners battle for business, they prove opposites attract in this outrageously funny romantic comedy from the USA Today bestselling author of Meet Cute.

Blaire Calloway has planned every Instagram-worthy moment of her cupcake and cocktails shop launch down to the tiniest detail. What she didn’t plan on? Ronan Knight and his old-school sports bar next door opening on the very same day. He may be super swoony, but Blaire hasn’t spent years obsessing over buttercream and bourbon to have him ruin her chance at success.

From axe throwing (his place) to frosting contests (hers), Blaire and Ronan are constantly trying to one-up each other in a battle to win new customers. But with every clash, there’s also an undeniable chemistry. When an even bigger threat to their business comes to town, they’re forced to call a temporary time-out on their own war and work together. And the more time Blaire spends getting to know the real Ronan, the more she wonders if it’s possible to have her cupcake and eat it too.

Blurb:

A sexy new friends-to-lovers standalone!

Let me list the reasons why dating a sexy, charming, pro hockey star is a bad idea:

1. He’s one of my closest friends

2. All our friends are friends

3. The wounds I’ve got from past relationships go deep. And so do his.

We’re both devoutly single — it’s just safer for the heart that way. But there’s no reason not to bid on the gorgeous, clever athlete at the charity auction this weekend. If I win, it’ll be a friendsdate.

And I do win.

I win him big.

And hard.

And all night long.

The trouble is . . . what happens in the morning?
