Review: Hot Texas Trouble (Texas True #5) by Eve Gaddy


She’s had enough excitement to last a lifetime…

Jedidiah Walker has spent years embracing danger as an undercover agent for a secret government agency, but she barely escapes with her life when a mission goes south. Her fiancĂ© and long-time partner isn’t so lucky. Burned out and grieving, Jedidiah returns home to Whiskey River intending to create a new, perfectly boring life. A job with app designer Trevor Holt is a dream. She can use her computer skills without death looming, and nothing says “safe” more than a computer geek.

Not exactly. Trevor may design apps, but he’s also tatted, muscular, and rides with a motorcycle club that provides support to exploited children. While sparks sizzle between them, Trevor’s conscious that as her employer, any romantic moves need to come from her.

Jedidiah falls hard for her sexy boss, but she senses he has a dangerous side that is beyond tempting—and precisely what she’s determined to avoid. Can Trevor convince her that what they have is worth the risk?
My Review:

A great addition to the Texas True series.

Jedidiah’s life took a whole different direction when her finance was killed while they were working an undercover assignment together.  She no longer enjoyed the work she did and wanted to come back home, to her family in Whiskey River, where things were safer and calmer.  She didn’t expect to meet Trevor or to work for him.  And she definitely didn’t expect to fall in love with him.  But she did and as she learned more about him, she wasn’t pleased.  She swore she would never fall for a hero again.  She didn’t want to worry about losing another man she loved.  What will it take for Trevor to convince Jedidiah that he will always love her and keep her safe? 

There is so much more to this book than just a romance.  I loved how a young runaway, Ricky, changed the course of the story.  It became more exciting and unpredictable.  I couldn’t put it down.  I was also so happy to see how Jedidiah and Trevor were able to work through their issues and get their happily ever after.

Review: Scent Detection by Leslie Marshman

Would a mysterious stranger blow her cover

Or wind up saving her life?  

Veterinarian Marie Beaumont’s spent five years in witness protection hiding from a ruthless foe. But then she and her K-9 save the life of a handsome stranger with amnesia and Marie's horrified when he begins to remember her—as the woman she once was. But who
is the elusive Jack? A caring, electrifying protector…or a killer sent to finish off Marie once and for all?


My Review:

An amazing fast-paced romantic suspense.

Marie has been living in witness protection for five years when her past finally catches up with her. 
The terrorist she testified against has escaped prison.  At the same time, a stranger, known as Jack, shows up in town.  Because of an accident, Jack has amnesia.  Marie is torn between wanting to help him, but also fearing he might work for the man she is hiding from.  But Marie is also fighting feelings of love for Jack too.  Until Jack’s true identity is revealed, Marie refuses let her guard down and Jack is left even more confused.

This is one of those books that you will want to set aside a good chunk of time to read.  You are not going to want to put it down.  I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.  It’s one of the best romantic suspense books I have read in a while.

Review: Cop A Plea by Hilary Grossman


Could anything be worse than your husband forgetting you?

Yes. Of course…

He could remember you as the young girl who made his childhood unbearable.

After years of putting love on the back burner in exchange for career success, I let my guard down. I fell head over heels for the hot policeman who pulled me over late one night for speeding.

At the time, I didn’t realize we had a past. After all, he changed a lot since graduation…

Now, newly married and expecting our first child, our lives are perfect until Pete suffers a severe brain injury while chasing a robber.

When he finally regains consciousness, the last few years of his life are missing, including all recent memories of me!

As Pete mourns the death of his first wife for the second time and tries to come to terms with living with his high school nemesis, I keep wondering….

What happens if he never remembers me?

Will our love be strong enough to bring us together twice?

If you like engaging characters, second chance romance, and laughing out loud, then you’ll adore Cop A Plea!


My Review:

Waverly and Pete’s story continues.

This book picks up where Cop an Attitude left off.  This time, Waverly and Pete are now married.  Waverly is pregnant now and their marriage is stronger than ever.  But everything changes in an instant when Pete suffers a traumatic brain injury.  Pete can’t remember the last few years.  He doesn’t remember getting together with Waverly, or even their marriage.  Will Waverly and Pete be able to find their way back to how things used to be?

This is one of the best continuation stories I have read.  All the fun from the previous book was there, but in this one, there were a lot of emotional scenes.  Seeing Waverly and Pete find their way back left a huge smile on my face.
