A proud fighter pilot for the Taqara National Guard and fiercely loyal to the land of his birth, Bennett Al Mansour’s heart belongs to the desert, to his bedouin roots. But his dreams are shattered with the explosion of a landmine. Angry and embittered, he is sent to his brother’s home in California for a rehab that he has no interest in. As he rebuilds his life and works with Tanya to get back on his feet, Bennett discovers a new passion. But will he have to choose between his love for his country and his love for the woman of his dreams?

An orphan, she’s learned to make her own way in the world and has dreams of travel and fame as a top-notch physical therapist… dreams that leave no room for a home and family, despite her growing love for the intense, brooding Bennett.

A best friends to enemies to lovers romance.
As the first female lead sportscaster with FNN (Football News Network), I’ve had to be tough and unflappable for years. No matter how far we women have come, football is still a man’s world. Which is why I’ve strutted my stilettos and lipstick on every field and around every TV studio I’ve ever worked, making sure everyone remembers just how much of a woman I am. I let no man get under my skin. Especially not Kade Jennings. We have a history, Kade and I. It goes all the way back to high school and spans our college years. We used to be best friends. But we haven’t spoken in years, not since he left without a word and I made it clear that I never wanted to speak to him again. Now all of a sudden he’s FNN’s newest analyst? He thinks I’ll break. With every wink he flashes me off-camera and every grope he sneaks under the table, he assumes I’ll shed my badass shell and fall into his arms like old times. Well, screw him, his charismatic smile, and his giant di—er—ego. I am where I am today because I’ve never let any man stand in my way. If Kade even tries, I’ll bring him to his knees.
Fate can be a real bitch. One minute you think you’re going to get the girl, and the next minute she’s slipping away. It’s a complicated thing, to be in love with your best friend. That friend zone is a tricky place to be, not that I ever entered into it willingly. At least, not with Sam. Fate just seemed to place me there, despite the fight I put up. Well, fate can go screw herself. Sam Lawrence was always meant to be mine. And it’s finally time that I prove it to her.
Once we’re seated inside, the car rolls forward, the driver already aware of where we’re heading. “Pretty sure of yourself, aren’t you? That you could show up at my front door in a tux, with a limo waiting, and I’d automatically agree to go with you?” “No, but you can’t say I’m not a risk taker.” “You forgot a red rose to complete the cliché.” She’s talking more to the window than to me, refusing to make eye contact. “Why would I get you a rose when your favorite flower is a lily?” Her head snaps around, her lips parting. I grunt, somewhat annoyed. “Really, Sam? You think after all the years I’ve known you I would forget your favorite flower? Am I that big of an asshole?” “No,” she says quietly. “I just didn’t think you’d remember.” Her forehead creases in thought. If I didn’t know better, I’d say she’s conflicted. Who knows what her brain is saying about me. Hell, I’d probably rather not know. So, I break the monotony. “You have to admit, though. Getting to stare at this all night,” I wave down at myself, “is certainly better than going stag.” Instead of rolling her eyes or making a snide comment like I expect her to, her eyes rake over me from head to toe, narrowing with her inspection. “It’s not your football uniform, but I suppose it’ll do.” The fuck? Sexual innuendo from Sam? I have to admit that’s the last thing I expected from her tonight. Slamming her door in my face? Sure. Stomping on my foot with her heel? I wouldn’t be surprised. But looking at me with unabashed lust shining in her green eyes? That didn’t even occur to me. Regardless of the fact that we kissed the other night. Her comment reminds me of our night together in college when my football jersey was the only thing she was wearing at one point, thus fulfilling one of my longtime Sam fantasies. My dick stiffens into a steel rod at the memory. Would you look at that? The football jersey still does the trick. And I’m going to take advantage of this unexpected opportunity. “I still have my uniform, you know,” I rasp, my gaze locked on hers. “And I’m sure I can rouse up some pads and pants if that’s what you’re in the mood for.” She licks her plump lips. No doubt they’d taste like cherries if I were to kiss her, just like they had the other night. I can still recall what that mouth felt like years ago when it was wrapped around my— For shit’s sake, Jennings. Get ahold of yourself. “I’m not quite sure what I’m in the mood for,” she whispers. “Yet.”
Melanie grew up in a small town in rural Missouri. After marrying her husband, she decided she wanted to try coastal life because why not? A few months later, they moved to North Carolina where she discovered her passion for writing, and they never looked back. They are now enjoying life with their beautiful daughter in Savannah, GA and loving every minute with their little Georgia peach.
Melanie’s other passion is traveling and seeing the world. With anthropology degrees under their belts, she and her husband have made it their goal in life to see as many archaeological sites around the world as possible.
She has a horrible food addiction to pasta and candy (not together…ew). And she gets sad when her wine rack is empty.
At the end of the day, she is a true romantic at heart. She loves writing the cheesy and corny of romantic comedies, and the sassy and sexy of suspense. She aims to make her readers swoon, laugh out loud, maybe sweat a little, and above all, fall in love.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Librarian Aurora “Roe” Teagarden is an active member of the Real Murders Club in her small town of Lawrenceton, Georgia. Roe has prepared for the nights meeting and can’t wait to share with the group but the meeting goes awry when a body is discovered of one of the members. Her death is eerily similar to another infamous murder. With suspects a plenty, Roe finds herself tying to solve the case but will it be too late?
Fun read. I thought this was a good story, Roe was not what I was expecting though. She was a bit more plain then I expected. I thought the Murder Club was realistic especially with all the true crime shows out there. Would check out the next book.

Deputy Jonah Baudouin should stay away from town trouble maker and savior of pets, Shay Michaels. She lets her emotions set her path and that is exact opposite of Jonah. Jonah should be focusing on running for Sheriff but Shay keeps crossing his path the next thing he knows they have a kiss they will not talk about and he is babysitting a kitten he doesn’t want. Shay has a way of making him smile, she is beautiful both inside and out and Jonah can’t seem to stay away. But when the town of St. Helena’s most influential takes airs some of Shay’s dirty laundry to stop her from her cause, everything becomes a hot mess and Jonah needs to decide if he stands by Shay’s side or lets her go.
Loved this, great summer read. Shay is a free spirit and so animated it comes off of each page in the story. Her friends are hilarious, the side characters are a real treat as well. Jonah is a pure charmer, he wants Shay but at the same time tries to run from it. Slow burn romance at it’s finest.

Billionaire Justice Kendall has lived his life not expecting to meet his one, but he does when he sees his neighbor next door. Justice is biding his time until Blair is eighteen before he makes his move though, but Blair has no clue of his interest.
This was a bit unfinished for me. Had some questions at the end about Blair and her father that I wondered what was going on. Good but too short.
