Hello Friends! I’m so happy Tori is doing posts this week about her favorite scenes from the Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews because, I gotta tell you–I have finished ZERO books this week, but not for lack of trying.
Currently, I’m in the middle of two books, one of which I’d planned to review today, the other for next week. I will finish these and both will post next Thursday!
All The Way by Kristen Proby (Romancing Manhattan #1)–I have wanted to try Proby for a while. So when this was offered and it was a first book in a new series I grabbed it. I’m not sure Ms. Proby’s writing style is for me. I’m not warming up to these characters and I’m not feeling very connected. But I persevere.
Finn Cavanaugh is known for being a force to be reckoned with in the courtroom. He owns a successful law firm with his brother and brother-in-law in Manhattan. On the rare occasion that he has down time, he spends it at his home in Martha’s Vineyard. But when Finn’s troubled niece goes to stay with him for the summer in Martha’s Vineyard, he’s reluctant to take time off from work. That is, until he meets his beautiful new neighbor, London.
London Watson is a Tony Award winning actress on Broadway. When tragedy strikes her family, leaving her alone and injured, she flees Manhattan for Martha’s Vineyard. Hoping she can figure out how to pick up the pieces of her life, London is convinced that she’ll never be able to return to the stage. But when she meets the charming young girl next door and her sexy uncle, they soon lure London out of her shell as she finally begins to heal from the wounds of her past.
But when London feels confident enough to return to the spotlight, she’s dealt another devastating blow. Will the newfound love between London and Finn be enough to conquer all? Or will it be over before it has a chance to grow…?
Maybe For You by Nicole McLaughlin (Whiskey & Weddings #3)–McLaughlin is a new to me author, and though I tend not to choose books that I can’t read in order, I liked the blurb on this one. And who doesn’t love a wedding story? I’m enjoying so far, though I have a feeling I would have benefited from reading them in order.
After a year of mourning her fiancé, Alexis Parker has worked hard to rediscover what she wants out of life. Fresh out of the military and back stateside, her brother offers her a marketing job at the Stag Distillery. Ready for a new challenge, Alexis agrees to accompany her new co-worker Jake Cooper on a Stag cross-country promotional tour. He may have an infamous playboy reputation, but Alexis is surprised to find out that there is more to him than meets the eye. And she likes what she sees. . .
Jake promised Alexis’s brother that he’d be an absolute gentleman. Of course, that was before he and Alexis hit the road, and they both agree that what Alexis’s big brother doesn’t know won’t hurt him. The plan: to keep their fling confined to the RV, and everything will go back to normal once they head home. Things progress in ways neither of them could have imagined, and Jake realizes that he and Alexis make a perfect mix. Can he convince her that he’s ready to shake things up and give true love a shot in Maybe for You?
