The Promise He Made Her
by Tara Taylor Quinn





Blurb:

A man of his word 
Dr. Bloom Freelander thought it was safe to breathe again when Detective Sam Larson put her abusive ex away for good. She's been moving on, running a private practice and providing psychiatry services to The Lemonade Stand women's shelter. But now that her ex is a free man, she's in danger once again. 
Forced into protective custody, Bloom can't help but fall for her protector. But she has every reason to doubt the handsome detective's word. Sam broke his promise to her once. Who says he won't break it again—along with her heart this time?

Review:                          5 stars
A very interesting story to read, specially having been on the side Bloom is or was.
Bloom Freelander thought it was safe to breathe again when Detective Sam Larson told her her ex was being released.
It was hard to read, for me anyway, not that the book is bad, it's a great story woven around Bloom and Sam and all the other characters that comprise this story. Would recommend it to anyone to read it so they can see what she had gone through and will go through before she is totally free.

EskieMama Reads Review: Novak Raven by T.S. Joyce




Novak Raven 
by T. S. Joyce




Blurb:

His entire life, Weston Novak has been followed by the long shadow of his raven shifter people. He’s kept his distance and settled into the Bloodrunner Crew, but his life has just taken a hard right turn. Not only does he have visions of the future now, but a soft-spoken raven shifter named Avery has just tumbled into his life to shake everything up. He knows she’s here for dark reasons, but he can’t help the bone-deep attraction he feels for her. Avery was born to betray him, and he can see what’s coming for him clear as day, so why can’t he leave the timid beauty alone? 

Avery Foley has been connected to the Novak Raven for as long as she can remember. She has lived far away from Weston in Raven’s Hollow, but has never stopped thinking about her childhood pen pal. To escape an unwanted betrothal, she’s lied to the raven council and run deep into the mountains of the Bloodrunner Dragon. She can’t ever meet the terrifying shifters who live here, but their mere existence is protecting her from an empty life. 

The Novak Raven doesn’t even know what he’s done for her, and now he’ll save her a second time. He has to because Weston knows better than anyone--you can’t change fate. 

Content Warning: Explicit love scenes, naughty language, and piles of sexy shifter secrets. Intended for mature audiences.


Review:                                5 Stars

Wow and a double wow, what a amazing story, not only I had a hard time waiting for the book, but I can honestly say T.S Joyce you outdid yourself.
Novak Raven Weston or Wes a young man troubled with visions that could bring him down, comes in touch with Avery from his long ago past, someone who he once loved and now hated as he was sure she had betrayed him.
Avery a raven who fell in love with Wes now had to contend with his hatred of her, but with patience and determination she manages to make sure he know's. Her own past and the discovery that her own people had betrayed her including her Parents, devastated her to the core.
Wes believe in her and his love for her start changed her and her raven, she becomes the strong woman she is, she fights for herself and her mate. Seeing old faces join the story was a plus, Beaston, Aviana and Rowan was a plus. Avery's encounter with Beaston is fantastic as she finally overcomes her fears of him and is now part of the Bloodrunners. A wonderful story that had me laughing and at times crying too, was a journey that I know I will take again and again as I love the books T.S Joyce writes and look forward to her next book.

EskieMama Reads Review: Rescuing Rayne by Susan Stoker



Rescuing Rayne 
by Susan Stoker





Blurb:

As a flight attendant, Rayne Jackson is used to cancellations, but she never dreamed her latest would lead to a whirlwind tour of London with a handsome stranger…or a life-altering night in his bed. One evening is all the enigmatic man can give her, and Rayne greedily takes it, despite suspecting it will never be enough. 

Heading home after another extreme mission, Keane "Ghost" Bryson hadn't planned to seduce someone during his layover, but Rayne is too sweet to resist. Being a Delta Force member means lying to protect his identity, which is unfortunate, considering Rayne seems made for Ghost, right down to the tattoo on her back. For the first time in his life, regret fills him as he slips away the following morning. 

Both are shocked when, months later, they meet again—under the worst possible circumstances. Seems fate has given them a second chance…if they can survive the terrorist situation they're in. If Rayne can forgive Ghost his lies. And if Ghost can trust Rayne to be strong enough to endure the secrets and uncertainty that come with loving a Delta Force soldier. 

** Rescuing Rayne is the 1st book in the Delta Force Heroes Series. Each book is a stand-alone, with no cliffhanger endings.


Review:                                 5 Stars

Ghost and Rayne what a pair and what an adventure they go on. A flight canceled brought these two together for a beautiful adventure to London for a day and a night of love and attention.
Ghost refusing to see what he had because of what he was, afraid of involving this woman who meant more to him that he would admit.
Rayne a romantic at heart gave it to Ghost without even being aware she did. After that night Ghost vanished as he told her he would. Six month later neither having forgotten each other , Rayne finds her self in Egypt and in deep trouble, will she be rescued on time, will their attraction to each other come around and will he admit he loves her, read the book, it's a great story that will make you laugh and cry and scream, but well worth reading. Loved the story and the characters in it.
