One Small Chance (A Love Story from Portugal)

Buy: One Small Chance

Isabel Antunes doesn’t think it could get any worse after she gets plowed into by a careless man on a bike, until she finds out that the man that just ran her to the ground has just been hired by her boss to be her assistant. The only solace that Isabel finds is writing to her long time best friend and pen pal “Elliot.”

When Simon Ackerley, aka Elliot, hit the woman on the street he had no idea that he’d be hitting not only his new colleague, but also long time pen pal, “Amélie”. After the accident and the chance discovery of a letter in his handwriting in her possession, Simon knows he’s started off on the wrong foot if he’s going to win over Isabel after he’s spent all these years waiting to meet her.

This was a short easy clean read that didn’t take much thought-just sit back and enjoy. With a little mystery and sweet romance it was fun to read.

The Villian

Buy: The Villian

Left alone to care for her younger brother and sister, Rosemary Mayfield is determined to make a life for them out in the wilds of the west. With her parent’s death after a robbery gone badly, Rosemary takes Benjamin and Emily to the home where they were to live and starts a new life with them. A city girl from New York City couldn’t be more lost. However, fate seems to have a different plan in store for the little family when a very large and very hairy man falls injured through their roof. Deciding to care for the stranger may put the family at risk or might find them a guardian to help protect them and teach them the ways of the west.

When Nicolas Ekkridon wakes up to the sight of the three orphans, immediately he knows that no good can come of this, because he had a hand in the fateful robbery that killed their parents. As a time traveler Nicolas has lived many different lives and has been in several different eras and countries. He’s a tough man and has a past that would make rule living Rosemary shrink away. They are forced to live under one roof and make a life together in the Wild West.

This was a very different read for me, I received the book a while ago and I didn’t read the back synopsis so I was a little surprised when time travel came into the story. It was a very quick read and actually very entertaining, there was suspense and murder and mystery, and of course some time travel. May Nicole Abbey had a strong woman and an even stronger man as the main characters and they kept the story moving quickly. A very fun time travel story.

Man of Her Dreams (Welcome to Ravenwood Book 1)

Amazon: Man of Her Dreams

Lindsay Swanson doesn’t have much time for the dating scene, and even if she did her luck in that department is leaving her with a batting average of a big fat zero. Lindsay owns her own renovation business, she’s very talented at envisioning and creating any project that comes her way. From start to finish-she does it all. She lives a quiet life at her home in her small town of Ravenwood and by word of mouth her company does exceptionally well at bringing in new customers.

Jared Kane is a well known author with several books on the New York Best Sellers list. Trying to take a little break from the crazy hustle and bustle of New York, where nobody cares who you are or what you do, Jared moves to Ravenwood. With his good fortune, he learns that he’s living next to a very beautiful woman who just happens to renovate homes, and he is living in an old home that definitely could use some tender loving care.

 

Sparks start to fly the moment these two run into each other at the grocery store and Lindsay steals his loaf of bread. With a little determination and the help of a misplaced notebook complete with a list of Lindsay’s dream man, Jared starts using his charm to worm his way into her heart. When it comes to light that he’s been using her list, she instantly become suspicious of his intentions and Jared must work fast to prove his love before he loses her.

 

A very cute and clean romance! I am new to Sue Barr’s writing, but I’m glad I was given the opportunity to review her book. The characters of the small town of Ravenwood could be in any small town, my town included. With small town gossip, high school drama that you never outgrow, and small town softball rivalries it fit my town perfectly. It’s fun to be able to put your feet up and enjoy a good clean romance that still can get the heart pumping fast with the steamy yet clean make out session. I’ll put this author right up there with Kimberly Krey: good clean writing with some steamy and fun action.
