Excerpt

Jason had settled into a chair in the center of the shop, surveying the work going on around him. He’d already left once, returning with sandwiches and sodas for everyone. As the hours passed and he vacillated between returning messages on his phone and talking to the workmen he obviously knew, she grew more confused.

“Don’t you have somewhere else to be?” she asked him.

He raised an eyebrow as if to say, Really? “Nowhere more important. I want to make sure the work here is done correctly and this place looks exactly the way you want it.”

She appreciated his thoughtfulness, but he had to have better things to do than worry about her. “Okay, but I can handle that. I don’t want to take up more of your day than I already have. I can stick around until the guys are finished, lock up, and head home.”

He folded his strong arms over his chest, his olive-green Henley pulling tight over his muscles. “And do you think I’m going to leave you here alone after what you told me about your brother?”

She’d been pushing thoughts of Colton aside all day. “I have pepper spray on my keychain.” The words sounded ridiculous, even to her.

She was no match for her brother, and if he was strung out? He’d have a wiry strength she couldn’t handle. She knew that firsthand, memories of her hands trying to pull his wrists off her neck very clear in her mind.

“Okay, fine. I appreciate you making sure I get home safely.” She’d be a fool to fight Jason’s protective nature.

“You still don’t get it. But you will.” He shook his head, amusement warring with a more serious expression. “You’re coming home with me, sweetness. I’m not leaving you here or in that shitty walk-up with a crappy lock your brother could break with one good kick.”

“Hey! That’s my apartment you’re insulting!” And all she could afford.

“It’s only an insult if I’m wrong.” He studied her, as if daring her to argue.

“I can’t just move in with you!”

He sighed. “Fine. You need someone to vouch for me? We can call my partners. Or my sister. Or… Hey, Sam! Am I trustworthy?” Jason yelled out to the man who was just climbing down a ladder, her clean window staring back at her.

Sam strode up to them and looked from Jason to Faith and back again. “Best man I know. Take a look at this.” Reaching into his pocket, Sam pulled out his phone, then began scrolling through his pictures.

“This is my girl.” He turned the phone so Faith could see a picture of a grinning little pixie with a bright smile and a pom-pom hat on her bald head, no hair hanging down beneath the folded brim.

“She’s beautiful,” Faith said, sliding her finger over her face.

“And if it wasn’t for this guy introducing us to his sister, I don’t think my wife and I would have made it through the roughest parts of her illness.” He shoved his phone back into his pocket.

Looking up at Jason from beneath her lashes, she caught a flush on his cheeks.

“It just so happens I could help you, man. But I’m glad Sienna could do her part. She loves fundraising and doing anything she can for kids who’ve been through what she has.”

Faith would like to help her one day, when there was no danger following her around, she thought sadly. For now, though, she had to fight through her own problems and not bring them into other people’s lives.

“Thanks, Sam.” Jason all but dismissed his friend, who waved and walked back to the other guy helping him.

“So? Still think I’m a serial killer?” Jason asked her.

Liza's Review:


Seriously Carly Phillips gave me yet another Dare brother to fall in love with in Sexy Dare. Jason Dare is yummy and I loved him from the moment he appeared on the page.

Jason Dare and his friends Tanner Grayson and Landon Bennett nightclub Club TEN29 is named in honor of their best friend Levi, who was Landon's twin brother. Jason and his partners are all broody men, and I loved seeing Jason be totally blown away when he stopped to help Faith Lancaster with a flat tire. His protective instincts went into overdrive from the moment he laid eyes on Faith. 

Faith is hiding in plain sight from her brother, who wants part of the money her mother left her, as he was cut off for being a drug addict. Jason immediately recognizes she needs both help and protection, but knows it has to be on her terms. I absolutely loved how strong Faith was and the fact she accepted help when she needed it. I loved the suspense aspect in this story and thought it played out well and with great pacing.

The chemistry between Jason and Faith was there from the moment they first met. OMG I loved them so much together, even when Jason was all friends only...which of course he has no chance of keeping. Seriously Jason and Faith were so perfect together from the very beginning. Yes he was super broody at times and didn't want a future with anyone because past losses, but I just loved them together from the start. I have to say that Jason of all the Dare siblings was one of the toughest to let everything from his past go. I got so mad at him so many times for putting up walls to try and keep his heart protected from the one person who already loved him so much. I'm not saying after all his dad had done to their family, and the loss of his best friend Levi in college weren't reasons to protect himself. I just felt like he held on to the past so much so he almost missed out on an amazing future.

Spending time with so many members of Jason's family made me super happy with this story as well. The Dare family, with the exception of Robert Dare, are some of my favorite characters every from Carly Phillips, and I loved seeing not only Jason's siblings, but some of his cousins as well. I had all the feels from reconnecting with so many of my favorite characters in this story!

Sexy Dare was an amazing start to a new series from Carly Phillips. I'm already totally in love with this series and can't wait to see both Tanner and Landon each get their own stories. I highly recommend this book and series to romance book lovers!

AS LONG AS I HAVE YOU (LONDON SULLIVANS #1)

All Mari Everett’s life, she’s had two secret dreams: To own a bookstore, and to reunite with her long lost father. But when he passes away unexpectedly and she inherits his home and business, the only way she can learn about his life—especially why he abandoned her when she was three and never came back—is by leaving California to take over his bookstore in London. 

Owen Sullivan lives and works on Elderflower Island, a close knit community in London where it’s impossible to keep a secret. It turns out, however, that Charlie Forsythe kept his daughter a secret from everyone for nearly thirty years. When Mari comes to London, Owen immediately falls for her. He’s never met a woman so intelligent, determined and honest. Not to mention so beautiful that she takes his breath away. 

Soon, everyone on the island—including Owen’s four siblings, parents and grandmother—is pitching in to help give the bookstore a fresh start. But as insatiable passion develops into love, will Mari and Owen be able to grab hold of their fresh start? Or will their pasts continue to cast a dark shadow over their chance at a brilliant future together in London?

Liza's Review:

When I found out there were more Sullivans in London, I was over the moon to meet the newest part of the family. I loved As Long As I Have You from beginning to end and have to say Bella Andre gave her readers another winner is the first London Sullivan's book.

Mari Everett's life is turned upside down when she is notified her biological father Charlie Forsythe has passed away and she is set to inherit his flat and bookshop on Elderflower Island. Mari has wanted to know more about her father since her mother kicked him out when Mari was 3 years old for not keeping watch over Mari as he was passed out drunk. My heart absolutely broke for Mari and Charlie for not having any contact all those years, and also broke for her mom for not letting go of her anger at Charlie even though she remarried a wonderful man.

Mari has always wanted to own her own bookstore and when she arrives in London, she is super excited to have the chance to run the shop she inherited from Charlie. The fact that he had let everything go while sick put Mari in an uphill battle to get everything in order. Thankfully Owen Sullivan, a friend of Charlie's, steps up to help Mari along the way. The attraction between Owen and Mari is pretty apparent from the very first moment they meet, and I fell in love with them as a couple just as quickly as they fell for one another.

I also loved how all of Owen's family stepped up to help out in any way Mari needed to get the shop up and running again. Mari had such amazing plans and dreams for her shop, and really needs all the help she can get to make it happen. While I loved each of Owen's family members, I adored his grandmother most of all. Mathilda Westcott is a famous mystery writer and was one of Charlie's closest friends. She is such a source of wisdom and love in this book. 

The romance between Owen and Mari was so wonderful. I seriously loved Owen and Mari truly were friends first before becoming lovers. Yes their romance was fast, but I totally loved every moment they spent together. My only concern with the entire story was how Mari's mother would react to any choices Mari made about staying in London or returning home to California. I really loved how strong Mari was when she talked to her family and her new friends about her choices.

As Long As I Have You was such an amazing story. Fans of Bella Andre will fall in love with the newest branch of the Sullivan clan. I have loved each and every one of the Sullivan books to date, and already can't wait to see each member of the London Sullivan clan get their own stories.

Forever Yours
Dangerous Love #2
Second chance romance/Romantic Suspense
Review copy provided by publisher

Nikki’s Review:
I knew from the get go that I was going to fall hard for Asher. Hell, I knew it in book 1 when he came onto the page. I was not disappointed.
I love second chance romances. I love the history between the characters and all the angst that comes with it. Asher and Remy have a past riddled with shared heartbreak, and this is where the angst that I like so much comes into play. Asher blames himself for the shit storm that Is Remy’s life at the moment, and she’s trying to move past all the hurt. I could really feel all of the emotion. It grabbed a hold of my heart very early on.

One of the things that I found a bit frustrating was the lack of communication between the hero and heroine. I mean, I understand where it comes from, but a conversation would saved them from a whole bunch of sadness. But that’s not how most romances books work. And honestly, even though it was something I struggled with, I wouldn’t want it any other way. I’m a sucker for punishment. I crave the journey. 

This is a great series. It takes place in a small coastal town, and has some quirky characters that you might find in a place with a small population. Lots of busybodies who mean well, but aren’t so subtle in their prying ways. I like that the main and secondary characters are close. They have a lifetime of memories between them all.

Mixed in with all the crazy sexiness in this book is some really good suspense. There’s a new character that’s introduced, and I can’t help but hope he gets a story. He has that anti-hero thing going on, and I find those guys absolutely irresistible.
Everything moved along really well in regards to the plot. I found myself wanting to read late into the night, even when tiredness was hanging over my eyelids. That doesn’t happen all that often for me. I like losing myself in a story that makes the lack of sleep totally worth it. Wicked Sinner did that and more. It was fun, suspenseful, and wickedly delicious.
