EMBRACE ME
A Chasing Fire Novella (#3.5)
Ann Marie Walker & Amy K. Rogers
Releasing September 20th, 2016
Berkley Intermix

Hudson Chase and Alessandra Sinclair’s heartracing romance continues in this hot, new novella in the Chasing Fire series.

Return to the dangerous and seductive romance that got pulses racing in the Chasing Fire trilogy…

It took ten years for Hudson Chase and Alessandra Sinclair to find their happily ever after, and they’re not about to let anything get in their way…

Nothing could stop the passion between Allie and Hudson—not time or distance. Not even tragedy, betrayal, and blackmail. But now they’re facing a new challenge: wedding planning. And while Allie’s social status demands she put on the event of the century, her well-intentioned family and friends have her doubting her walk down the aisle…

Hudson knows tensions are pushing Allie to the brink, but he’s not letting her throw everything away over some flowers and cake. He has plans for his new bride, and unlike their last adventure, he’s determined that this time there will be no unwelcome surprises. But for all his determination and control, there’s one element Hudson Chase has never been able to predict—and she has some adventurous ideas of her own…

Praise for the Chasing Fire trilogy



“Exceptional…Seriously sexy and
sinfully steamy. Can’t wait for more from this writing duo!”–New York

My Review

Let me start off by saying I’m thrilled to have Hudson and Allie back in between the digital pages of my iPad.

I truly enjoyed this continuation of such a fun, sexy and romantic series. Hot scenes, humor and more alpha Hudson always work for me.

Ann Marie and Amy have done it again. This novella was a pleasant addition to this series.  Embrace Me takes readers further into Hudson and Allie’s future. This married couple gets to properly celebrate their marriage with my two favorite supporting characters and side kicks, Harper and Nick.  Readers will enjoy the humorous and witty moments shared by this sexy couple while also enjoying plenty of hot and sexy moments. Hudson never disappoints when it comes to pleasing his wife. You’ll discover a softer side of Hudson shining through in this novella as well.  But don’t fret, the alpha male we all love stays true to character.
I for one am thrilled to read about this happy couple enjoying their married life.  Reading about Harper and Nick in this novella was great too and I feel they need their own book. I’m sure their story will be a fun and exciting one. After all, Nick is a Chase.
I’m not quite ready to say goodbye to these characters quite yet and hope that another novella or full book is in the works.
I gave this novella 4 sexy stars!
I look forward to reading more books by this dynamic writing duo.

 

Though thousands of miles apart, Ann Marie Walker and Amy K. Rogers are in constant contact, plotting story lines and chatting about their love of alpha males, lemon drop martinis and British

About the Author

Kacey Shea is a mom of three, wife, and indie author who resides in sunny Arizona. She enjoys reading
and writing romance novels as much as her son loves unicorns, which is a lot.

When she’s not writing you will find her playing taxi cab to her children while
belting out her favorite tunes, meeting friends or family for food and to share
some laughs, or sweating it out in the gym. Kacey finds that picking up heavy
weights repeatedly is good for her mental health as much as it is for the physical.

She has an unhealthy obsession with firefighters. It could be the pants. It
could be the fire. It’s just hot. On occasion she has been known to include
them, without their knowledge, in her selfies outside the grocery store.

Kacey one day aspires to be a woman hand model in a sexy photo shoot. You know,
the woman’s hand raking across the muscular back or six pack stomach of the male fitness model. Yep, that hand.

Until that day comes she will continue writing sexy, flirty romance novels in hopes to bring others joy!

Kacey enjoys interacting with her fans so please feel free to stalk her on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.

 

 

Review – A Midsummer Night’s Fling (Much Ado About Love, #1) by @authoreliza Eliza Walker #review #releaseday

Susi Reviews A Midsummer Night’s Fling

(Much Ado About Love, #1)

by Eliza Walker

 

midsummer nights fling cover

 

 

 

The show must go on, but the price of admission could be her heart.

Sick of her vagabond life in a Broadway touring company, Nicola is ready to settle down. She wants nothing more than to park her suitcase in California, put out feelers for local auditions, and leave her past firmly behind her.

Too bad her past comes knocking on her door her first day home. All six-foot-three, beautiful man of her past named Max. Stupid Max. The mistake Nicola just can’t seem to stop making.

Even before Nicola—fiery, quick-witted, beautiful Nicola—slams the door in his face, Max is in trouble. She will always be the one who got away. Three times. Which makes convincing her to play Titania to his Oberon a bit…awkward.

Though she has zero desire to re-re-rekindle an old flame, Nicola can’t turn down the chance Max is offering: a lead role with the West Coast’s premiere Shakespeare company. But when their first rehearsal kiss disintegrates into a passionate liplock, she’s questioning her sanity and tempted to jump ship—before Max can break her heart again.

Now it’s up to Max to convince her that the torch he’s been carrying is actually an eternal flame.

My Review

 

What do you get when you mix a Summer acting job, a second chance romance and Shakespeare?  Well, you get a Midsummer Night’s Fling by Eliza Walker.  I will be honest, I wasn’t too sure I was going to like this book at the very start.  It took me some time to really get to know and like the characters but, once it happened, the rest of the book was a real treat. I am a fan of Shakespeare and it had been quite some time since I read or was reminded of his work.  Eliza blended a clever and well written story that was a pleasant surprise from all of my other current reads.

Nicola and Max, the two main characters are actors that are reunited after several years.  They had a relationship years ago that didn’t end well.  A Summer acting job brings them together in roles that pull at their emotional and sensual strings.  This story has humor, angst, love, and a great cast both as actors and friends.  Chemistry among lovers is hard to shake and Max and Nicola definitely have it making that aspect of the book so much more enjoyable.

I will mention this, you need to be familiar with Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream to understand the roles they will play when acting.  I had to do a little refresher research to make all of the connections in my mind.  Once I did that, the story flowed, made sense to me and was brilliant.

I do love second chance romance stories and I am always the cheerleader routing for the two former lovers to come together.  I do recommend that you read the book to see what happens between these two.  I won’t spoil it for you.

I look forward to reading the rest of this series.  A Midsummer Night’s Fling is a perfect Summer Beach Read.

I gave this book 4 stars.

Eliza, congrats on your debut!

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Dirty Friends

3e8b9-goodreads

Best friends Cooper Brewis and Ryan Evans have grown up living a house apart from one another. They love pool parties, hot weather, sassy chick and the dirty track.

When Ansley Young moves into the house between, them both Cooper and Ryan become her protectors. Being best friends with the two biggest flirts in school, makes life difficult at times but she wouldn’t have it any other way. She will always be their biggest fan on and off the track.

After graduation the three are faced with moving away from each other.

Will one kiss ruin their bond or will it become something, Beautifully… Dirty?

 

My Review

It’s Summer and I love short and fun reads.  Dirty Friends is just that, a perfect read to enjoy while relaxing out in the sun or simply relaxing with a glass of wine.

This debut was an enjoyable read for me. I immediately loved the characters.  They were realistic and entertaining.  In this story, three friends enjoy their high school years together.  Cooper, Ryan and Ansley have great chemistry with each other.  It was easy to see how these boys would become so protective of their friend/neighbor.  Friendly banter between these characters also makes for a lighthearted read.

Additionally, I enjoyed the well written motocross scenes.  As a mother of two boys, I was able to picture their race outings as well as the atmosphere in these races.  The scenes in this book were clearly well researched and well written.

As the story evolves, time passes and the three friends embark on their own journeys.  Being apart proves to be more than expected for these friends. Then, there is a kiss, one that can make or break a friendship.

Ms. Steele, I was left wanting more.  I look forward to the next book in this series.  I can’t wait to see what develops and how their adult lives continue.

I gave this book 4 stars!

I love the cover too!  Your cover model is perfect!

Grab your flip flops, bikini, your Kindle and your beach chair.  Enjoy Dirty Friends, a perfect Summer Read.
