I find the love letters in my new dorm room, left behind by a previous occupant.

  I'm falling in love with each word, unable to stop myself.

  And I don't even know his name.

  Until they tell me.

  His name is Judson Devereux. They say he’s toxic. Falling for him will be a mistake.

  I want to believe them. I want to walk away. But the words refuse to be erased from the invisible parts of me.

  I'm hooked on the scent of his poison. It’s bad for me. It could kill me. But I’m in too deep.

Melissa Foster

World Literary Press

Steve Johnson is living his life’s passion watching over the Colorado Mountains as a ranger and wildlife consultant. But his peaceful life is upended when overzealous and insanely beautiful Shannon Braden flits back into his life after returning from a brief trip home to Maryland. He thought his attraction to her was under control—after all, she’s only in Colorado temporarily, and he doesn’t do casual affairs.

Shannon’s return to Colorado has as much to do with the game of cat and mouse she and Steve have been playing as it does the data she’s been hired to collect. But despite her efforts to explore the undeniable heat simmering between them, Steve’s intent on keeping his distance.

When a ranch abutting the national park goes up for sale, Steve will do whatever it takes to keep it from falling into the wrong hands. And when all his attempts fail, he’s left with no alternative but to follow Shannon’s guidance into the online world he abhors in order to raise the funds. The more time they spend together, the deeper their attraction becomes, and a game of cat and mouse turns into an unstoppable connection. But when Shannon’s assignment comes to an end, will it mean an end to them, too?

4.5 stars!
This book was my first Rebecca Yarros read, and I must say, I loved it. It had many unique components. I loved the plot, the chemistry and then characters. I am so glad I discovered this book!

Paxton is a crazy and wild X Gamer. He likes to love on the edge. He does too anything half way. To get on a cruise ship, he zip lines. That is just Paxton. He is rich and handsome. Girls throw themselves at his feet. The only thing he needs help with is school. Enter, Leah. She has been hired to  keep his grades up so he can keeps his end of the bargain with his dad. Good grades and finishing college means he gets the funding he needs to make his movie.

Leah and Paxton are opposites, but it works so well, that you are rooting for them from the start. They complement each other without even knowing how or why. Both have pasts that they don't share, and it makes them who they are, but at the same time, their walls come down to each other. 

I really didn't know anything about this book going into it, and I loved it. I thought it was going to be another sports romance, but it was so much more. There was romance and mystery and surprise! I could not put this book down once I started it. I had to know what was going to happen next. There was so much going on with the whole thing.. I loved it. And, now I found out it is a series!! LOVE !!!

This is a beginning of a new love affair between me and this series!!

Synopsis: California landscape artist Estelle Donovan hates big cities. Between the grime, the smell, all the drab concrete, and the suffocating summer heat, how can anyone breathe? Housesitting her brother's New York apartment, complete with broken elevator and smoking air conditioner, is her kind of hell. It's only for two weeks, though. What could possibly go wrong?

Dumping a jar of pickles on the hot girl at the grocery store wasn't Crosby Chase's finest hour, nor was getting bitten in the butt by the demonic cat on her fire escape. But he is going to change her mind about his beloved city, damn it. In fact, if they could just make it five minutes without falling into bed, he bets Estelle he can find five things she'll love about New York.

Falling in love wasn't part of his plan. And with an entire country between them, Crosby realizes he doesn't need five reasons to make Estelle love New York.

He needs one big reason to make her stay...



Synopsis: Kelsie Reed is over bad luck and bad men. Newly dumped, she’s now the pathetically single maid of honor in her sister's wedding—and her ex is the best man. Her bad luck continues when a plumbing meltdown in her apartment sends her sexy neighbor running to her rescue. He’s got "serial dater" written all over him, which is unfortunate because the man is hot.

Sawyer Chase loves women, but settling down? He’ll leave that to his brothers. But when Kelsie confesses she’s a dating disaster and is about to become the laughing stock of her family wedding, Sawyer takes control. He's got one week to teach her how to land the man of her dreams, and he’ll do it on her terms: no touching, no kissing, and definitely nothing more.

But some rules need to be broken, especially when, for once, there’s something on the line worth fighting for…



Synopsis: Ethan Chase isn't interested in dating. After losing the woman he loved more than life itself, he'd much rather ride solo, but his family is dead set on fixing him up. To get them off his back, he hooks up with ultra-adventurous, ultra-temporary adventure photographer, Rue Campbell. All he has to do is survive three weeks in her orbit and he'll be single again, only without the pitying looks and pressure to move on.

Rue is literally counting the days until her plane leaves New York City. The last thing she wants is a relationship, but being Ethan's pretend girlfriend can't hurt, right? Wrong. With Ethan, there's no faking anything—in or out of the bedroom. With the sheets burning hot and the clock ticking on their arrangement, Rue realizes she's falling for a man guaranteed to derail her goals...and break her heart.

3 stars

Maybe it is me, but this was a cute story about 2 "famous people" who have been thrown together and neither want to get involved with the other person. 

Claire Stevens is knows as the runaway bride. She is a news reporter that ran out on 2 weddings and had bad luck with a 3rd boyfriend. Liam Chase is knows as the "hot HVAC" guy and made an internet sensation by some girl who took his picture and put icon social media... so now Clair is hiding out in upstate NY trying a new career of B&B where she meets Liam, who is coin up to give her an estimate. His van its wrecked by Claire, a snow storm comes, standing them, a raccoon eat their food, there is no heat.... the list goes on and on. 

How could you not fall in love under those circumstances ??
