The road to trouble is paved with sweet temptation…

Always the rebel in her ultra-conservative family, Quinn Sakata dreams of quitting her dad's real-estate business and restoring the old Mountain Ridge Bed and Breakfast in her hometown of Hope Springs. Except that Quinn's not the only person bidding on it. Worse still, her competitor is her high school crush, Heath Brantley, who is all kinds of ripped, tattooed hotness...

So much for her "nice, conservative boys" rule.

Heath has his own reasons for bidding on Mountain Ridge, and he won't give in without a fight - even to the red-lipped hottie with a sailor's mouth. But when their rivalry shifts into an unexpected zing of chemistry, Heath realizes he's in deep trouble. Because it's inevitable that emotions will get involved, and he needs to keep his eyes on the prize before they both get hurt.

Title: Second Chance Ranch
Author: Cindi Madsen 
Age: Adult
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Entangled

Sometimes love is right where you left it.

Sadie Hart has a plan: return to her small town of Hope Springs so she can regain her confidence—and bank account—before giving one more shot to her country music dream. The dream that means more to her than anything. The dream she chose over her high school sweetheart, the brooding and sinfully handsome Royce Dixon.

Royce has moved on from his memories of the beautiful Sadie. Now he’s focused solely on running Second Chance Ranch, where he rehabilitates troubled teens through ranch work. But when he needs a new employee and Sadie’s the only one to volunteer, he has no choice but to offer his old flame a job.

Whether riding a horse with the wind in her hair or mucking out the stalls, Sadie can still get Royce’s heart beating like no one else. But Nashville is her dream, and Royce can’t settle for second best.

Review~ Unforgettable by Melody Grace

Unforgettable (Beachwood Bay, #8)

Unforgettable by Melody Grace
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I feel like this is the year of series ending. Multiple favorite series, including the Beachwood Bay series are coming to an end this year, sadly. :( But at least these series and the Beachwood Bay are going out in style!

The last book in the Beachwood Bay series Unforgettable is about Ash Callahan eldest brother to the Callahan clan and Noelle Olsen soon to be a corporate lawyer. After a chance meeting and a night shared with passion and no rules, Ash and Noelle never thought they would see each other again. That was until they bump into each other in Beachwood Bay.

Noelle has given up her corporate law to take over her grandmother’s bed and breakfast. With her family thinking she is crazy, Noelle is determined to bring life back to the old B&B.

Ash has always been cold and standoffish when it comes to women, keeping his focus on his job and family, but after the night he let his walls down with Noelle he can’t seem to get her off his mind. Fighting his feelings for her is getting harder as she is now in the same small beach town as him, hanging with his family, and their businesses are mixing together.

I really liked Noelle, she was strong, independent and nice, plus the girl was always baking so I was pretty much hungry for pastry’s throughout the book. When push came to shove, she stood up for herself and for what she thought was right, even if that meant getting her heart broken. Ash is a different story, he made me mad most of the book. He couldn’t see past his own fears and insecurities to see a good thing even if it was right in front of him.

With Unforgettable being that last book in the series all the characters from the previous books are back and it's great to see how their lives have changed and grown. The epilogue was perfect, I’m so glad Melody gave that to us, the fans of Beachwood Bay.

New from Kendall Ryan

My upcoming book has been tentatively titled The Dominant, and I've begun to question if that's the right title.  The Dominant reads hard core BDSM read? This book is totally not. In fact, the characters have taken a different turn and it has more angst and feels, along with the sexy. There are *very* light BDSM elements. A few toys, and lots of sexy.

At its core, it's a forbidden love story about a man who fell for his best friend's little sister years ago, and now she's back in town, coming off a bad breakup looking for a little fun and a lot of rebound sex. He's had to lock-down his heart, but agrees to help her - on his terms!

With this I have decided it needed a new title to fully describe the book at its best. 
Releasing on July 14 is SINFULLY MINE.

Releasing on July 14

She was forbidden. 

I didn’t care. 

As my best friend's little sister, Macey Hale was off-limits. Tempting as sin, and forbidden as fuck. I wish I could say that stopped me. I wish I could tell you I’d behaved like a gentleman. 

I didn't. 

When she waltzes back into my life with that same spark I fell for, looking every bit the beautiful woman I knew she’d grow into, I have to force myself to remember I’m different from the man she once knew. I’m colder. Harder. And for good reason. 

With my heart on lockdown, and my hands aching to touch her, I set out to prove that I can keep myself in check this time. 

No strings. No attachments. 

And definitely no falling for her again. 

This is book two in the Lessons with the Dom series, following The Gentleman Mentor. Both are complete standalone novels featuring sexy Dominant men you're sure to fall in love with. Enjoy! 


Up until this moment, sex been a meaningless physical act meant to quiet the need raging inside me, nothing more than joyless weekend hookups with girls whose names I wouldn’t recall in the morning. But Macey wasn’t just the girl I’d grown to love, she was also my best friend’s little sister and a virgin—a combination that was completely off-limits.
