[Kame's Review]: "Summer on Lovers' Island"

Summer on Lovers' Island by Donna Alward
Publisher: St. Martin's Paperbacks (May 5, 2015)
Series: Jewell Cove, 3
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Lizzie Howard's life is close to perfect, until her father's death brings her world crashing down around her. With her reputation and heart in tatters, she reluctantly agrees to temporarily take over her best friend's practice in scenic Jewell Cove, Maine—a position that's a world away from the high pressure career she once loved.

Josh Collins is no stranger to pain. After losing his wife, he moved home looking to start over. One of two doctors at the town clinic, his sleepy coastal practice is just what he needed. Until Lizzie Howard arrives. Lizzie is everything Josh wanted to get away from: brash, ambitious and not interested in a quiet life in a quiet town. But as the sparks fly between these two doctors, they realize that sometimes opposites really do attract.

[Pat's Review]: "The Bridge to a Better Life"

The Bridge to a Better Life by Ava Miles
Publisher: Ava Miles (May 8, 2015)
Series: Dare Valley, 8
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Sports hero and newly retired NFL quarterback Blake Cunningham wants a second chance at love…with his ex-wife. He's bought the house next door to her in Dare Valley and has built a bridge connecting their properties. It's his bridge to a better life, the one he lost when Natalie Hale left him after a family tragedy destroyed their marriage.

Natalie has just started a new job as the head caterer at the small town's historic hotel. When she discovers Blake has become the boy next door-literally-she secretly has to admit he still fires up all her engines and tugs at her heart. But the ghosts from their past seem too monumental to conquer.   

Blake vows to help Natalie remember the power of their love and friendship. With the intense sparks of attraction flying between them, Natalie begins to put her heart out there again. How can she resist Blake when he makes her laugh and swoon by even acting out her secret Outlander fantasy? As they both give love a second chance, they are forced to face their most disturbing memories, not only the tragedy that ripped their lives apart, but also the secret parts they were afraid to share...

[Pat's Review]: "Life After Perfect"

Life After Perfect by Nancy Naigle
Publisher: Montlake Romance (May 19, 2015)
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Katherine Barclift had it all: the perfect job, the perfect car, and what she thought was the perfect marriage. But when her entire world collapses in one stomach-churning instant, she hits the road and keeps driving until that so-called “perfect life” is just a dot in her rearview mirror.

A chance encounter leads her to make a pit stop in Boot Creek, a drowsy little North Carolina town where she can call herself Katy, soak up the peace and quiet…and drink in the bluer-than-blue eyes of Derek Hansen, a local doctor still wrestling with his own painful past. Both Katy and Derek are wary about giving romance another shot, but they can’t deny the intense attraction between them. And if being in Boot Creek has taught them anything, it’s to take life as it comes and never pass up a chance at true love…no matter how wounded your heart may be.

[Kame's Review]: "Only Forever"

Only Forever by Cristin Harber
Publisher: Mill Creek Press (May 16, 2015)
Series: Only, 4
Genre: Contemporary Romance

The fourth and final installment of the Only series. Must be read in order. 

There comes a time when Emma must face the secret she's kept from Grayson. But she never thought it would be while she stood on stage at Emerald’s. The seconds she has to convey that her life is in danger are lost in the devastation that she sees rip through him. 

She pinches her eyes closed. “Don’t leave me. No matter how mad you are, please, please don’t leave me here alone.” 

But there’s more on the line than just Emma’s safety. There’s the danger that brought Titan’s Delta team into the strip club in the first place. A threat that’s too close to home, too close to family Grayson plans to claim. 

I push away the sudden spring of fear. Life’s too unknown, with hidden enemies and unseen terrors. The idea that I could lose her again… it’s unbearable.
