|The Bachelor Auction|
|July 1st 2018|
|All is fair in love and business…
My friend’s plan is pretty simple: win the bachelor auction in a charity event and get the most influential man to sign a business deal with us. It’s a do or die situation. But plans rarely go as you would expect.
When the bids begin to take ginormous proportions, my friend can’t stop in her rush of excitement. We don’t have the money. We can’t afford him, and yet, before I can even comprehend what’s happening, we’re the highest bid.
“The bachelor” aka Tyler Becks isn’t old and ugly. He isn’t very business-like, either. In fact, it’s hard to imagine that someone with his brain and bank account can be this sexy.
He’s even kind enough to want to work with us. With me, in particular. I can’t refuse, even though working for him means I have to see him every day. My future depends on it.
I won’t let my guard down. I won’t fall for him, and particularly not now that I know he’s hiding something from me. Everything comes at a price. Even Tyler’s generosity.
Till Death Us Do Part
The fateful day Mimi Marcus has dreaded begins with a phone call… The wife of a U.S. Marine, Mimi spent countless nights worried that her husband Joel would fall in the line of duty.

But when suspicions of Joelâs past surface, Austin refuses to disclose family secretsâeven to his brotherâs widow. Itâs only by accident she uncovers evidence of Joelâs tainted past. Devastated by his lies and betrayal, she slowly opens up to Austin, and together they unfold layers of pain and grief. Mimi is sure sheâll never love again, but is Austin the man to prove her wrong? Then the unthinkable happensâ¦ Just as Mimi finds new hope in a future with Austin, Joel returns home from war. Enraged, traumatized, and teetering on the edge of insanity, Joel confesses to a history of deception, revealing yet another secretâthis one too terrible to forgive. In an awful twist of fate, Joel proves marriage vows are made to be honored. No matter what.
Till Death Us Do Part by Cristina Slough was not an easy read for me. In fact it was a very hard one.

|His love for her was forbidden…
Riss has been around since the beginning of time and watching his charges be born, grow up, and die has taken a toll on him. Until lately, being a Protector has always been enough… The Archangel Michael, Riss’s mentor and superior, decides with the help of their “Boss” to change things up a bit―like the rest, he doesn’t want to lose one of his best Protectors. Riss is assigned to guide and protect Kala. Riss is not happy about the changes and hopes this is his last assignment as a Protector before he can quit and live his last year on Earth and die.
She has nothing left to lose―except her life…
Kala has lost everything: her family as a child, her job, and now her apartment. She is also having weird dreams that she can’t quite remember…dreams revolving around a single white feather. Kala’s sexual fascination with the feather brings forth the most gorgeous man she’s ever seen―Riss. He came for his feather―he can feel everything she does with it throughout his body.
Sex with a human is forbidden and Riss has never even considered it―until now.
A madman, suffering from a delusional fantasy, has set his sights on Kala. He has already killed and will kill again. She will be his or suffer the consequences…
And Riss has been forbidden to interfere…
The Truth About Him
Everything I Left Unsaid #2
We played our roles, told each other lies.But now Dylan is no longer just a mysterious deep voice on the other end of the line. Weâre face-to-face and our relationship is very, very real. We still have secretsâbut so much is crystal clear: The thrilling danger.The raw, naked desire.The need to keep feeling the way he makes me feel. Forever.Dylan is putting up walls, trying to keep me safe, but he canât shut me out. He has seen my darkness and rescued me. Now itâs my turn, if only he will let me.
The second book of the “Everything I Left Unsaid ” series starts where the first one finishes. We directly are confronted with this very tensed situation that makes you wondering: what is going to happen the next round about 350 pages…. Some things happened, but in my case not enough. While I really enjoyed getting to know more about the very special characters, it was difficult for me to fully enjoy the story as it all gor a bit confusing in my opinion. It felt like the author was not able to completely focus on the story in general which is why it was difficult to follow the story.

|“She is not going to be my wife. In any way, Riss.” Riss nodded as Agon started pacing again. “I want to touch her. Feel her body close to mine and kiss her. I have a need to taste her mouth to see if it tastes as good as I think it might. Then there is my body. I cannot control it around her. I run so hot and hard that I feel as if the world knows that I need her in ways that are not right.”
“She will taste better than you can ever dream of, and her body will give you pleasure in ways you cannot imagine.” Agon stared at him for several seconds. “But you cannot touch her. She is your charge. If you do not wish to have her as your wife, then you must not touch her in any way. If you do…if you do, my friend, then there will be no turning back. For the touch of the woman you are to spend your days with will haunt you in ways that will make you want to end your life in order to be with her. Trust me on this. I am well aware of how your body will crave her, and you will stop at nothing to have her again and again.”
“I do not want her.” Riss nodded and could see that Agon was lying to him as much as he was himself. “She is beautiful and stubborn, but I do not want her. But I fear that it might be too late for me.”
Allie Sanders thinks life in a small town canât get any more dull and boring. She plans to escape after graduation. After a bad break-up, she wants to sail through junior year without distraction. Then the mysterious loner sits down in front of her in AP English. Heâs the guy she noticed last year desperately trying to stay invisible. She wants to know his secrets.Suddenly her much older military brother, Doug, makes a rare appearance. He takes a special interest in her life. Suspicious of his motives Allie holds back, never really trusting him. Doug wants what she wantsâthe boy she has come to love. No way would she let that happen. Sheâd go against family and friends to protect himâand his secretsâeven if it ends up breaking her heart.
SPOILERALERT (if you want to call it like that) â¦ THIS is NO STANDALONE â¦
There is just something about Ms. Connor and this series that leaves me with a Happy Face & Goofy Smile.
The McKinney/Walker is one of my favourite series and when I saw this on Netgalley I just had to request it.
Zach Walker firefighter a slight commitment phobe a reformed manho still hasn’t processed what happened to his sister Hannah. But he meets his game changer. Nora Sellers.
I loved Zach, he is a knight in tarnished armour.
Nora Sellers has been alone all her life and it is hard for her to trust people and put down roots with an incident at the hospital where she works she meets the one man that will change everything. Zach Walker.
I docked a star because I wasn’t a fan of Nora but she grew on me and we became friends, we shall never be best buds though.
Waiting for You is a heartfelt romance full of feelz, sweet with an adorable baby (I’m a sucker for single parents, like catnip peeps) that will most likely melt the coldest of hearts.
A must read!

|Galin knows it’s his turn and he isn’t having any part of it. He makes no bones about making it clear to Boss either that he both knows what he is up to and isn’t going to cooperate. He doesn’t now or ever want a wife.
“This boy you are going to protect is somewhat of a problem child. He has had a great deal thrown at him, but—”
“Boy?” Boss nodded and frowned. “No, I’m sorry, but it should be a woman, not a boy. I’m not…you’re going to assign me my wife to care for. I don’t want one, but I know it should be female. What is this about?” He pushed the file back at Michael.
“You want a wife? It was my understanding that you have no wish to be wed. Am I correct on that?” Galin nodded and looked at the file with the picture of a young boy on it. He appeared to be in his early teens maybe, but he wasn’t much older than that. “Galin? Do you wish for me to reassign you? Do you have no desire to help this young man?”
“I thought I was going into the rotation to find me a wife. The way that you did for Riss and Agon.” He looked up at Boss and Michael, who had summoned him today. “I had thought that the Mystics were a way for you to get rid of us all, and marrying us off was better than having us die. I’m…I’m not sure what’s going on now.”
Dusty McGee has just lost her sister to horrific accident and finds herself saddled with a very angry young nephew to raise. Now, some self-proclaimed protector, Galin, tells her that although he doesn’t want to marry her he would very much like to take her to his bed. She’s had about all that she can stand.
Markum has set his sights on taking the boy to his realm, convinced this is the alleged boy the demons have been searching for, and Dusty is an added bonus…

When her handsome, mysterious neighbor suddenly asks her out on a date, Adeline Rose has suspicions he’s fishing for help with his bundle of…joy? By the date’s end, she’s convinced Noel’s just as distant as he seems–until a scorching goodnight kiss burns away all thoughts of being careful.
Now Noel has more than one problem on his hands. Splitting baby duty between three badass assassins, figuring out how to fit in more time with Addy…and keeping both of them safe from the danger that’s followed him home.

Thoughts & Feelings.
This isn’t really a review as the title states that it is my thoughts and feelings. There was just something about this book that just didn’t work for ME! (ME is big because I am picky in everything I am and everything I do)
Back on topic I read the blurb and was like oh cool, three men and a baby style, I love the film and I mean Tom Selleck and his tasche people.
Once again off topic, sorry. So I liked the concept but when it came to reading it I just didn’t like the characters. The writing is solid and I’m sure that the majority of everyone will dig the plot it is I just didn’t.
Different strokes and all that. But I still recommend the book for the suspense and the other characters in the book.
