To top it off, she even had to go through the heartbreaking divorce of her parents. Through it all, she survived. All she cared about was making sure her daughter was happy and taken care of. Despite an ex-husband hell-bent on ruining her life, she fought to overcome. She’s gotten to the point that she’s okay with being just okay.

Benji knew the moment he saw Lucy, he’d never be the same. Especially when she came with the bundle of crazy that was her daughter. His heart wasn’t ready for them.

Because of his past, he had gotten used to being alone, a recluse, but even he had to admit it was getting old. He was lonely. Hockey wasn’t enough anymore. He wanted a family; he wanted his true love.
And Lucy and Angie were just that.
They were just two lost souls.
Floating through life with no purpose.
But finding each other gave them direction, a chance at a future And had them both Rushing the Goal to be together.
My Review: I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Lucy is bitter she only cares about getting through life with her daughter with the support of her family. Enter in her daughter’s first hockey practice and Benji the stand in for her brother.
Benji takes on look at Lucy and he knows she is the one. He doesn’t realize he has a to of walls to tear done to even have her consider a relationship.
This book will have your emotions all over the place I cried and laughed. I loved the main characters and that the people from the other books in the Assassin’s series are revisited. The Sinclair family is awesome. Happy Reading
Every red-blooded male in St. Helena wants Harper Owens…as a friend. Despite her efforts at seduction, Harper seems to be destined to end up alone. The only guy with a knack for unleashing her inner vixen is firefighter and resident rule-breaker Adam Baudouin. Agreeing to a faux-mance could help him secure a promotion—and save her family’s lingerie shop, the Boulder Holder. But playing with fire has consequences. Especially when the flame comes courtesy of St. Helena’s own Five-Alarm Casanova…
None of Adam’s quick-and-easy hookups have prepared him for a connection this extraordinary. There’s more to the milk-and-cookies art teacher that he’d love to explore. But first he has to convince her to trust the town’s most notorious playboy. Even tougher—he’ll have to trust himself to be the real-life hero this warm and sexy woman deserves.
My Review: I received an Arc form NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
This book had me laughing out loud. I enjoyed how everyone in the town was all up in Harper and Adam’s business. Not only do they pretend they aren’t dating but the town is pushing it the even gave them their one nickname not to be told here.
Their interactions were incredibly cute and mostly hysterical until it got to be hot. This is a fast read great for a pool or beach day.
SOMETIMES YOU CAN GO HOME AGAIN…
After an overseas mission goes wrong, Army Special Forces officer Jacob Kincaid knows where he must go to make things right: back home to the tiny town of Cedar Ridge, Colorado. All he needs to scrub away his painful past is fresh mountain air, a lakeside cabin, and quiet solitude. But what he discovers is a gorgeous woman living on a boat at his dock. Sophie Marren has nowhere else to go. She’s broke, intermittently seasick, and fighting a serious attraction to the brooding, dishy, I’m-too-sexy-for-myself guy who’s now claiming her dock. Something about Jacob’s dark intensity makes her want to tease—and tempt—him beyond measure. Neither one wants to give any ground . . . until they realize the only true home they have is with each other.
My Review: I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Every time I read a Cedar Ridge book I feel like I am home. The town and people are written so vividly I could be sitting next to them at anytime. The featured couple were Jacob Kincaid and Sophie Marren two souls who need to feel like they fit in. After coming home Jacob isn’t sure his decision was right he has to mend many fences and face his past. While Sophie is trying to make a life for herself after a divorce. The two of them will struggle fight the strong attraction they have towards each other. True to the rest of the series this is a standalone, however all the family member’s are in it. You will laugh an awful lot and you will not be disappointed.
