NOT QUITE PERFECT

Not Quite Series, Book Five

Montlake Romance, Contemporary

September 20, 2016, First Edition

Paperback & Kindle

With true love, there’s no such thing as a safe distance.

Mary Kildare knows how to read people. It’s both why she makes a great therapist and why she refuses to trust the average bachelor. Staying fiercely independent has been her primary relationship strategy—until wealthy playboy pilot (and commitmentphobe) Glen Fairchild reappears in her life. After a yearlong teasing tug-of-war, Mary and Glen test the waters of attraction, only to find that their physical chemistry runs deeper than flirtation.

At first, a bicoastal romance suits them both—especially since Glen can swoop in and whisk Mary away on one of his company’s planes. But no matter how close they get, they’re still three thousand miles apart. And when Mary’s life is threatened, Glen realizes the one luxury he doesn’t have is time. Can he close the distance between them before it’s too late?

 

My review –

Not quite Perfect is the next book in the not quite series. I really enjoyed the last one and was excited to read this one. This book was wonderful and I was not disappointed. This story centers around Mary, the best friend of Dakota, the romance writer in the last book. Dakota is now marred and a mother and Mary is starting to feel like the third wheel.
She finally agrees to a date with wealthy playboy Glen even it is just to have some fun for a little while. Even though they are far apart, they both start to take the relationship seriously. So serious in fact that when Mary’s home is trashed, he begins to worry. Glen has reason to be concerned as someone is out to get Mary and it’s not in a good way.
I loved this relationship. It was believable and I adore suspense in a book. So great to catch up with the characters from the other books as well. Can’t wait for the next one in the series.

That’s why he’s always relied on Kait to put out the fires in his love life. Seeing how she’s the one making him sweat? Yeah, consider him screwed.

Boardroom Cowboy

by Kandi Silvers

A Texas Cowboy and a Vegas business woman merge for a venture too hot for the boardroom.

CEO Vanessa Lockhart has had her fill of controlling men. So when she decides to take a few days off in the Lone Star State to kick up her booted heels with a little shopping and a night on the town, she doesn’t count on meeting Carson, getting ruthlessly kissed, or ending up in bed with the cute cowboy. A two-day Texas fling? Why not? A girl only lives once. After all, she’ll have something for her memoirs—until she goes back to work in Nevada to meet her new CFO…and in walks her Texas cowboy. Vanessa’s divorcing one man and doesn’t need another—too bad Carson has other ideas.
Carson Cutes didn’t plan to pick up Vanessa at the bar or spend two fun days and two hotter nights with the beauty. But it isn’t an issue since she blows out of town without a goodbye. When his godfather asks for help with his new hotel venture—he never expected to end up in Las Vegas or for the CEO to be the one woman he can’t get out of his mind. What’s a cowboy to do? He doesn’t believe in love at first sight—but now has doubts. How can he convince a girl under neon lights that she holds his Texan heart?

About Kandi Silvers

Born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada, I still call Sin City home. I’ve always been a sucker for romance novels and movies, especially romantic comedies. Writing is more than just words to me it’s captivating slices of characters’ lives and sharing them with the reader. I’m a firm believer that heroes and heroines had a life before page one of any story and their past as well as life experiences, made them who they are.
Coming from the southwest I have a major soft spot for cowboys, but also love suspense, a bit of intrigue and kick-ass heroines. Of course, there is always the time to slip in a good paranormal. I try to keep my writing diverse and always on the naughty side.
Happy reading!

Years ago, he unknowingly rescued his soulmate, now she’s back in Texas and about to save his guarded heart.

Unlike his twin, Texas National Guardsman Sgt. Logan McCall would rather march barefoot and blindfolded through a cow pasture than date the same woman twice.

Hill Country’s newest resident is hotter than the wing sauce soaking into his shirt.
Mission on.
Graphic designer and carrier of misfortune, Chloe Davis is a danger to herself and those around her, so entertaining thoughts for the sexy cowboy wearing her hot sauce should be a no-no…not a hell yeah—especially considering he’s the guardsman linked to a horrible instance in her past. But when he turns out to be one of her clients, she can no more avoid him than the attraction sizzling between them. Chloe’s back in Texas determined to make a fresh start, and she succeeds in business but fails to resist the handsome soldier’s relentless pursuit.
But when he discovers her past, will he trust his heart or lose her forever?

Welcome Sable Hunter/ Texas Maverick

Texas Maverick (Texas Heroes)

Maverick Cross is a Texas hero, not the flashy kind, he’s a war veteran who served his country overseas and now serves it at home as an Austin firefighter. To look at him, and women love to look, he’s a ripped athlete who takes care of himself and has it all together.

Only his next door neighbor knows the truth; Maverick suffers from PTSD.

Everly Winterfell is almost invisible, blending into the crowd is fine by her. She’s a hero too, not the kind who wears a cape, but the kind who isn’t afraid to dig for the truth and expose it for all to see. Everly’s alter ego is Eve Winters, an award winning journalist who doesn’t seek the limelight, she’s content with writing stories that change people’s lives without drawing any attention to herself.

Nothing much escapes Everly, she has a talent for seeing beneath the surface, reading people for who they really are. From her vantage point in Apartment #701, she has learned that the occupant in #702 is lonely. He has a habit of pushing people away before they can get too close, especially women. Maverick can offer a woman great sex, Everly can vouch for that fact. The walls are thin between #701 and #702 and many nights she has lain there wishing she was on the receiving end of his attention. He’s intrigued by his odd little neighbor, who seems to want to be his wingman and he has no idea that her ulterior motive is to be his friend. After some negotiations, they strike a deal – she’ll find him women who know the score, who won’t expect more than he can give, and in return he’ll see if he can advise her on how to attract a man for herself. To facilitate their odd arrangement, they install a chalkboard on the narrow wall separating their front doors, leaving messages about their shared adventures.

The more time they spend together, the less important finding dates for the other becomes. Everly and Maverick discover they share a chemistry that’s off the charts, they can’t keep their hands off one another. There’s only one problem – Maverick has no idea Everly is his secret obsession, Eve Winters. Sometimes what we need is right in front of our face. Sometimes what we’re looking for is right next door…

Looking Forward to WPA

Where has the summer gone? It’s seems like I can’t keep up lately. As the saying goes, I’m ‘a day late and a dollar short’ for just about everything lately.

I’m super excited about the Writer’s Police Academy coming up soon and so thankful that it’s in my home state. It was such an amazing event last year and this year will be epic.

One of the fun events that happen before it starts is the Golden Donut Contest. I entered last year and it was a great writing exercise. They post a picture and you have to write a story about it in 200 words. Not 200 words or less, just 200 words. No less, no more. That is very tricky to do.

This is the picture for this year’s contest. I wrote a story titled Dear Jayne and guess what? I forgot to enter it so I thought I would share it here.

thumb_20131012_102543_1024-1024x768

Dear Jayne

  The words refused to form as he stared at the blank page. What did one say when informing a woman of their beloved’s death? Dean, his army bunkmate, had been his friend for years. Nothing had ever come between them until Jayne.

It pained him to see them together. Dean was dark and brooding, a Humphrey Bogart type. The kind of man’s man that was irresistible to the opposite sex. Jayne on the other hand was sweetness and sunshine. She deserved better.

Steward leaned back in the stiff metal chair. Despite the fan above, the room was cramped and smelled of mold. It wouldn’t be long now and he’d be done with basic training. Soon he’d be stepping off the train in a swell uniform and into Jayne’s waiting arms. The grieving woman would need him that was for sure. He typed a few more lines of condolence. Dean’s death had been quick. They’d had the day off. A hike along the river cliffs near base but the rocks had been slick.

“Hey Stew. Still want to go on that hike?”

Calling all bookworms

When I was a kid I remember my mother getting a box in the mail each month that had different makeup to try. It was so fun to see what she received and all the pretty makeup that was inside.

Now that I am older, I still love to get boxes in the mail and over the years I have tried different mail order companies. I can’t tell you how excited I was to find out about the various book boxes that are available now.

One of those boxes is called Bookworm Box which was started by Coleen Hoover. What is unique about this book club is that 100% of the profits, after expenses, are donated to various charities.

This box includes at least two autographed books, a bookworm swag item, and other swag donated by authors. I received the April box and here was what was inside.

DOING IT OVER

Most Likely To Series, Book One

Montlake Romance, Contemporary

April 19, 2016, First Edition

Paperback & Kindle

One small town. Three close friends. True love to last a lifetime.

Voted Most Likely to Succeed, Melanie Bartlett ended up anything but. The down-on-her-luck single mom wants a complete do-over—is that too much to ask? With her family long gone from River Bend, strong, independent Mel is as surprised as anyone to end up in the quaint small town she once called home. But with her friends, Jo and Zoe, by her side, and a comfortable room at Miss Gina’s quirky bed-and-breakfast, she just might have turned the corner on a new life.

Wyatt Gibson never liked the big city. River Bend suits the ruggedly handsome builder just fine. Wyatt knows he’s home, even if that means being charmed by the appearance of Melanie and her spunky, adorable daughter. Is Wyatt’s calm devotion—even amid a coming storm—enough to convince Mel she may have found a home to call her own, a family that never leaves, and a true love to last a lifetime?

Praise for Doing It Over

“The romance between fiercely independent Melanie and charming Wyatt heats up even as outsiders threaten to derail their newfound happiness. This novel will hook readers with its warm, inviting characters and the promise for similar future installments.” –Publishers Weekly

 “This brand-new trilogy, Most Likely To, based on yearbook superlatives, kicks off with a novel that will encourage you to root for the incredibly likable Melanie. Her friends are hilarious and readers will swoon over Wyatt, who is charming and strong. Even Melanie’s daughter, Hope, is a hoot! This romance is jam-packed with animated characters, and Bybee displays her creative writing talent wonderfully. –RT Book Reviews, 4 Stars

My review:

Sometimes you have to travel many miles to figure out that the place you started, is your destination. In high school, River Bend native, Melanie Barlett was voted most likely to succeed but she doesn’t feel very successful as her car limps into her home town for a class reunion. Now a single mom with little money, she is hoping to find some place to regroup and figure out what to do with her life.

With the help of her childhood friends and a handsome younger man, Wyatt Gibson, she finally starts to believe this is the place to be. That is until someone she trusted in the past threatens the one person in the world that means more to her than anything, her daughter Hope.

This is a fast and enjoyable read. I love the cougar aspect of the story and the suspense aspect of the second half keeps you guessing at the outcome. It’s another five star book from Catherine and I am looking forward to the next two.

About the Author

I’m Lana, a life-long Texan, dog lover, and writer of erotic romance. When I say ‘erotic romance’ I mean I include real life in my stories, and real life includes sex

.

I divide my time between Austin Texas and a small family ranch not far from Shiner. Shiner is the home of Shiner beer, I’ve been known to stop off at their tasting room before rolling up my sleeves to get to work on the ranch. Like many Texans I’ve got a bit of everything in me, German, Native American, and some Creole influence. Nothing like a little spice to liven things up.

Writing is much like reading, I need to feel the story in the same way a reader would. I adore leading men who are strong, but aren’t afraid to love. My goal is to fall in love as I write, it’s the only way my reader will as well.

Come with me and get to know a hot cowboy or two. It’ll be fun!

Thunderbird: Hell Yeah! (Equalizers)

myBook.to/Thunderbird-Equalizers

Soulmates. Twin souls. Two people destined to be together. Their journey to love is never an easy one, but when they meet – their hearts beat only for one another.

Kyle Chancellor is a hero, an honest to God hero. After winning the Heisman, he turns down a lucrative career as a professional football player to fight in Afghanistan. Not many know he enlisted because his heart was broken. When his time is up, Kyle comes home to form the Equalizers with the members of former Seal Team 7, they band together to fight battles for those who cannot fight for themselves.

Hannah Montenegro is a woman who has sacrificed her life to help her family, never knowing the joys and freedom a young girl should enjoy. She lives in constant fear of being discovered in a country where she has no citizenship and no hope for the future.

But fate has a plan…the night Kyle comes back to Texas, they meet in a bar where he is drowning his sorrows and she is spreading her wings to learn how to fly. From the moment they touch, the heat between them is undeniable. But unfortunate circumstances separate them and neither dares dream they will see one another again.

Kyle is from a powerful Texas family. Because of his work with the Equalizers, his stance on stem-cell research and internet security, he is the only one surprised to find the people of the Lone Star state want him to run for Governor. Many get behind him, including the McCoys. But the one person he wants at his side eludes him.

Hannah is always on his mind. From the beginning their relationship is complicated, but when she comes back into his life, he grabs onto her with both hands. Politics, a sex tape, immigration issues and a baby complicates their pathway to happiness. But Kyle is the Thunderbird and Hannah is his soulmate in the truest sense of the word. Their journey to love is one you’ll never forget.

A modern day Cinderella story with a twist…

**Excerpt**

Before he could answer or they could absorb the significance of their shared vision, the skies opened up above them and rain came pouring down. Kyle pulled Hannah’s hand over his arm and they raced back up the hill toward the house and stood on the front steps watching the rain wash down in sheets. A bolt of lightning split the sky and a thunderclap followed.

Kyle shook his head. “I suppose you’re going to blame me for that, aren’t you?”

“Why’d you have to go and ruin a perfectly good day?”

Her admission of having the Thunderbird dream had floored him before and now he had no doubt, she was the ‘one’. This was absolute proof as far as he was concerned, and the information had Kyle’s mind racing. The significance overwhelmed him. He felt like he was face to face with his destiny and Kyle was compelled to fall on one knee and propose. But it was too soon…so they’d play instead.

“Ruin a perfectly good day? We’ll see about that. I’ll have you know any day you spend with me is a good day.” Kyle said and lunged for her.

Hannah spun away and ran for the front door. She pulled it closed behind her, but Kyle yanked it open. “Where are you going, Newman?”

Hannah backed away from the door slowly, weighing her options. She didn’t know the house at all. She looked left.

Kyle kicked his shoes off and stalked her. “Don’t want to go in there.”

She looked right.

“That’d be an even worse decision.”

They were in the expansive ballroom where they’d danced the night before. Hannah could make a break for the kitchen, but then what? Kyle would almost certainly cut her off before she made it there to hide behind the massive island that dominated the room.

Kyle stopped and leaned against one of the big Greek style columns which framed the room. “Looks like you’re trapped.” He started to move slowly, circling the room, cutting off Hannah’s escape to the kitchen. “Kitchen’s not an option anymore. Unless you think you can get by me.”

“I have a couple times already.”

Kyle smile. God, she was adorable. He began to circle again. “Because I let you.” He was at the stairs now. “You could make a break for the washroom, but the handle’s broken. So you wouldn’t be safe.”

“You’re lying.”

He circled more. “I could be. But what if I’m not?”

Hannah looked toward the front door.

“Don’t want to go back out there, Newman. I made it rain, remember? I can make it rain more.”

“Then I’ll stay right where I am.”

Kyle approached slowly.

Hannah was mesmerized. Her heart was pounding. She should run.

“Last chance, Newman,” Kyle said when he was only a few feet from her.

So, this was what they called the thrill of the chase. Her whole body was revved up. Oh well, she’d just let him chase her until she caught him. Ha!

With a lilting giggle, Hannah broke to her left, the kitchen her only option. Kyle closed the gap with one big stride and pinched her rear.

Hannah jumped and yelped before changing her direction. She headed for the steps. The slick mud on the bottom of her boots caused a loss of traction and Kyle snatched her before she fell forward.

He spun her around and into his arms. “Look what I caught.”

Hannah pushed him away and ran for the stairs again. She stumbled on the first step, but gained her balance with the railing and dashed up the steps.

“I’m gonna get you,” Kyle said from behind her, making a grab for her ass.

He managed to get a handful, but Hannah scampered away. She was four steps from the landing when he appeared at her side and stuck his hand in front of her. She had nowhere to go. Kyle stepped close and backed her into the wall. He looked down at her, neither of them saying a word.

Hannah’s foot slipped nervously off the edge of the step and she regained her footing. The only sound in the house was Hannah’s breathing. She inhaled sharply, her heart beating a thousand miles a minute.

Kyle placed a hand on her arm. “We can’t have you wearing these wet clothes, can we?”

Hannah looked up at him. She gnawed on her bottom lip and shook her head ever so slightly.

“Boots,” Kyle said.

Hannah lifted her leg and he helped her out of them.

“Tights.”

Hannah shook her head like a petulant child.

Kyle pulled his sweater up over his head. “I’ll take them off of you if you don’t do it yourself.” The idea sent a charge of electricity to Hannah’s nipples. She shook her head no again.

Kyle reached both hands around her back. Hannah was glued to the wall, hands at her sides. He lifted her sweater up and pulled her tights down roughly, almost taking Hannah off her feet. He kissed her calf as she stepped out of her wet tights and kissed her bare thigh on the way up.

“Shirt,” Hannah muttered.

“Louder, Newman.”

She wanted to be forceful, but his presence had stolen her breath. “Shirt,” she muttered again.

“One more time?”

She was already on unsteady knees. “Take your shirt off.”

She wanted to rip it off of him herself, but much like her mouth, her arms didn’t seem to work. Kyle pulled his shirt up over his head.

It was soaked and clung to him as he went. Hannah stared at the ridges of his six-pack as he struggled. The desire to reach out and feel him tore at her. Her hand was halfway to feeling his rippling abs when Kyle finally freed himself from the wet shirt.

“Your turn.”

Hannah didn’t respond.

Kyle undid his belt and pulled it out of the loops. “Last chance.” He leaned into her ear and whispered, “Don’t make me take it off for you.”
