Falling for Sarah is only 0.99 cents for a limited time!


 Widow Sarah Johnson struggled to pick up the pieces after her life was ripped apart. After two years of grieving, she's found contentment in her thriving business as photographer to Hollywood's A-list and in raising her angel-faced daughter, Kylee... until bodyguard and long-time friend Ethan Cooke changes everything with a searing moonlight kiss.

Sarah's world turns upside down as she struggles with her unexpected attraction to Ethan and the guilt of betraying her husband's memory. But when blue roses and disturbing notes start appearing on her doorstep, she has no choice but to lean on Ethan as he fights to save her from a stalker that won't stop until he has what he prizes most.

Only 0.99 for a limited time!


 Jewelry designer Sophie Burke has fled Maine for the anonymity of the big city. She’s starting over with a job she tolerates and a grungy motel room she calls home on the wrong side of town, but anything is better than the nightmare she left behind.

Stone McCabe is Ethan Cooke Security’s brooding bad boy more interested in keeping to himself than anything else—until the gorgeous blond with haunted violet eyes catches his attention late one rainy night.

Stone reluctantly gives Sophie a hand only to quickly realize that the shy beauty with the soft voice and pretty smile has something to hide. Tangled up in her secrets, Stone offers Sophie a solution that has the potential to free her from her problems once and for all—or jeopardize both of their lives.

My Musings :

I received a free copy via CBB Book promotions in exchange for an honest review.

I had previously read Falling for Sarah so I was eagerly awaiting to read this book. When I finished, I had more admiration for the author since this one surpassed even Falling for Sarah . I believe this is my new favourite in this series.

Sophie had my heart from the beginning. Her daring escape and her indomitable spirit to better herself had my attention and my wishes. She was spirited and vulnerable and she touched my heart easily. Stone, on the other hand, didn't make that good an impression at the story's beginning with his uninvolved attitude. But Sophie softened him up and this made me like and near the end love his character.

And did the author leave out the other familiar characters? No! all the beloved people are included and make their appearance as per the story and I had fun reading all the developments in their lives. This family of people sure do know how to lift up the readers' spirit. The antagonist was perfectly crafted for Sophie and I was intrigued by this character. I felt he could have been given more scenes in the tale.

The plot and the story were all planned well and the scenes flowed well. There were a couple of scenes near the end which had me banging my head because of Sophie's actions. I was literally groaning while reading that part and this has made me revise my opinion about Sophie a bit. The story touched all my soft spots. The author's writing style had me identifying with the emotions of the protagonists. It was a very fast read and except for the foolish actions near the end, it was a fantastic read too. This has further increased my appetite for this series. I am looking forward to checking out the other book. In the meantime,I recommend this book to contemporary romance lovers with a dash of intrigue and thrill.

My rating : 4/5
