Hard Landing (Deep Six Security Book Six) Becky McGraw

Becky McGraw

Hard Landing

Deep Six Security Book 6

Release Date Dec. 26, 2017



When Maddie Carter comes back from the grave, will Hawk have a fresh start with the one who got away?

Deep Six pilot, former Army Nightstalker, Rhett Hawkins, knew the day would come, but he had hoped it wouldn’t be until after he was gone. Maddie Carter was destined to die young, because that is just how she lived. She flew by the seat of her pants and flying as all she cared about. He’d learned that the hard way, when he asked her to marry him and she shot him down.

But after her memorial service, Hawk just couldn’t get past the feeling that something was wrong with the recounting of the events that led to the crash and her supposed death. Neither the helo or her body had been found. It drove him insane until he decided to do some investigation of his own. After getting conflicting stories from two surviving special operators, he knew he had to go the full distance to settle his mind.

Once in Central America, Hawk realizes there is much more going on than the Army knows. Not only is the now blacked-out military helicopter back in service, Maddie is behind the stick making drug runs for a brutal cartel.

When he has to convince her she needs to be rescued, Hawk sees she is not the same. Captain Maddie Carter is scarred, hardened and has no memory of him or her former life at all.

Back home, when her memory starts to return and secrets are revealed, could it mean he’d only rescued her to lose her again? Would those secrets change his own life forever too?

KG Logo

Hard Landing is Becky McGraw’s 6th book in her Deep Six Security series. Rhett Hawkins, also known as Hawk, always knew that the love of his life Maddie Carter would die young, but he had no idea she would go before him. Maddie becomes one of the few women helicopter special ops pilots in the prestigious Nightstalkers combat flight team, and she breaks up with Hawk prior to heading off to training and El Salvador.

But when a mission goes wrong and Maddie’s helicopter crashes, the government declares her dead. Hawk finds himself not only grieving, but angry at her for trying to compete for her father’s love and live up to her brother’s high rank and accomplishments. 6 months later, he’s convinced that she’s alive, and he takes her brother and some of the Deep Six Security Team to search for Maddie.

Meanwhile, Maddie has been living a life of hell in the jungle, forced to run drugs for the cartel, injured. Hawk is in for a big surprise when he finds Maddie, and they are both are in for a long struggle to get back to normal, no thanks to her father.

This was one of those books that once you pick it up, you just can’t put it down. I haven’t had the pleasure of reading the rest of this awesome series yet, but you can bet I’ll be buying the rest and reading them as soon as I can! I just loved it!

Jace’s Jewel: A SEALs of Honor World Novel Heroes for Hire Book 12 by Dale Mayer

Dale Mayer

Jace’s Jewel: A SEALs of Honor World Novel

Heroes for Hire Book 12

Release Date Dec. 05, 2017



Welcome to Jace’s Jewel, book 12 in Heroes for Hire, reconnecting readers with the unforgettable men from SEALs of Honor in a new series of action-packed, page turning romantic suspense that fans have come to expect from USA TODAY Bestselling author Dale Mayer.

When several members of a search and rescue team die in an accident, followed by several more team members who are murdered, Jace is ordered to sort it out.

Working for a large insurance company had always been great for Emily, until she is handed several files all from the same family. Men she knew… intimately. Afraid there is too much going on in the background she contacts Legendary Securities for help.

As the investigation develops, more bodies turn up, along with jealousy, greed and insurance payouts that just maybe shouldn’t have been paid.

She pairs up with the sexy Jace as they delve into the twisted and personal cases and race to stop another murder from taking place right in front of them…

KG Logo

Jace’s Jewel is the 12th book in the Heroes for Hire series, and once again, Dale Mayer has written a page turner with romance, suspense, and mystery. This series just keeps getting better and better for me, and I’ve become a huge fan of Ms. Mayers.

Jace is the last single guy at the compound, and he’s taking some ribbing from the guys for it. However, it’s not long before a case comes walking in on two long legs. 4 members of a Texas Search and Rescue team have died, and it turns out they are all related. Emily Leacock is an insurance agent sent to investigate. She also happens to have ties to 3 of the men, and as it turns out, they all have million dollar insurance policies.

Jace is sent to Texas with Logan to find out what is going on. He’s also interested in Emily, but as the insurance agent, it’s a conflict of interest. As the case gets more complicated, so do their feelings. And Emily just may be in the center of it, or is she?

While this one had a bit of a slower beginning for me, it got involved rather fast, and both Emily and Jace grew on me.

Justice For Erin (Badges of Honor:Texas Heroes 9)

Susan Stoker

Justice for Erin

Badge of Honor: Texas Heroes

Release Date Nov. 14, 2017



Blurb:

Part-time bartender Erin Gardner is friendly to everyone who bellies up to her bar, including the local law enforcement and firefighters who keep her city safe. That’s where she meets game warden Conor Paxton, a regular who asks to join a canoeing trip she’s leading for her university day job. When the trip leads to something more, Erin couldn’t be happier.

Conor adores Erin, more than enough to help her continue to get over lingering self-esteem issues from her childhood. He’s thrilled he’s found someone who enjoys spending time in nature as much as he does.

Just when the couple thinks they’re on their way to a happily ever after, Erin finds herself in the wrong place at the wrong time. But there’s no way she’ll just lay down and die. She’s woman enough to save herself―and lead her man to her when she’s done.

Justice for Erin is the 9th book in the Badge of Honor: Texas Heroes Series. Each book is a stand-alone, with no cliffhanger endings.

KG Logo

Susan Stoker has come out with yet again another amazing addition to her Badge of Honor Series. I love her books because her heroines are always so relatable with real life problems and issues that all of us go through in our everyday lives. Plus, she’s not afraid to put her heroines in dangerous situations., have them actually get hurt, then show their strength through it all. (Most books, it’s the hero getting hurt while protecting his woman)

Our heroine is Erin, bartender at the Sloppy Cow.(what a name!) She’s gone through a lot in her life, including massive weight loss and surgery. Conor Paxton is a game warden who is attracted to Erin. He goes on a canoeing trip with her and a couple of her university students, then after having a wonderful weekend, asks her out. But her love of the outdoors gets her into a dangerous situation, and Conor and his friends get together to try and save her. But Erin works at keeping herself safe while Conor works at saving her life!

Again, Susan Stoker has penned a truly wonderful tale with strong characters, a spellbinding, pageturner storyline, and she once again proves why she’s the tops in military romantic suspense!

Tyson’s Treasure: A SEALs of Honor World Novel Heroes for Hire Book 11 by Dale Mayer

Dale Mayer

Tyson’s Treasure: A SEALs of Honor World Novel

Heroes for Hire Book 11

Release Date Nov. 07, 2017



Blurb:

Welcome to Tyson’s Treasure, book 11 in Heroes for Hire, reconnecting readers with the unforgettable men from SEALs of Honor in a new series of action-packed, page turning romantic suspense that fans have come to expect from USA TODAY Bestselling author Dale Mayer.

Tyson lost his wife and child several years ago, and he knows it’s time to move on… So when his wife’s best friend barrels into his new life and he finds out she’s in trouble – as in serious stalker trouble – he steps up because he owes it to his late wife. Only he quickly finds out he wants to be at Kai’s side – any way he can.

Kai has wanted Tyson for so damn long, but from the first moment her best friend saw him first, the two were like a lock and key. When Kai sets her eyes on him for the first time in years while doing a demonstration for a new training program her company developed, she realizes her feelings haven’t changed.

But her life has changed, and she has a huge issue she doesn’t want anyone to know about. After all, she’s got a badass skill set… She can handle a stalker on her own… right?

Or maybe not. As the two delve deeper into the Kai’s troubles, they find out things are much more complicated than they seem – and much more-deadly.

KG Logo

Dale Mayer is quickly becoming one of the reasons that military/security books are fast becoming one of my favorite genres to read. I love her Heroes for Hire Series, though I did come in on it a little late. (Just means I get that many more books to read!) Book 11 is about ex-SEAL Tyson Morgan.

Tyson is just getting over the death of his wife and child 2 years prior and has left the SEALs. He’s rejoined life by joining Legendary Security, and things start looking up when his wife’s best friend, weapons specialist Kai comes to Legendary to show off her company’s latest VR trainer. He realizes he’s attracted to her, especially when he finds out that Kai has a stalker. Kai has been attracted to Tyson since he and her best friend met and married weeks later. Now, with Tyson helping to find her stalker and by her side 24/7, she realizes it’s more than just attraction. But her stalker has other ideas, and wants her out of the picture.

This was an exciting mystery to watch unravel as we try to figure out just who the stalker is. I had my suspicions, and I was partially right as to what was going on. Ms. Mayer managed to turn this into a roller coaster ride of suspense with a wonderful love story thrown in the mix. Plus, we get a little preview of the next book, which is just enough to tip you over that edge of the seat you’ve been sitting on the whole time.

Delta Redemption (SEAL Team Phantom Book 6) Elle Boone

Elle Boon

Delta Redemption

SEAL TEAM PHANTOM Book 6

Release Date Oct 24, 2017



Blurb:

Jase had his life mapped out in front of him. He was the leader of SEAL Team Phantom and planned to continue moving up in the ranks, until he met his mentor’s daughter. Falling for Brooke Frazee wasn’t on his agenda, but from the moment he saw the Admiral’s daughter, all bets were off.

Brooke’s life wasn’t always easy, but she dreamed of someday finding her happily ever after. She never planned on falling for a military man like her father, until she unexpectedly meets Jase Tyler at her door. The thought of being with him both terrified and excited her.

Jase knew Brooke was the woman for him. After declaring their love for each other they were forced to part ways, for reasons Brooke will never understand. Jase is left with his heart in shreds as he’s shipped off on a mission, unsure of his return. Will war make him forget everything he’s leaving behind or will his mission leave him branded as a traitor?

Brooke was shattered when Jase left, but she was forced to move on with her life even though her dreams had changed. She’s not prepared when the man from her past walks back through the door, or for the secrets they uncover while on the run from danger.

Jase, no longer a member of Phantom Team, but not knowing who else he can trust to protect what he holds dear, calls on his former SEAL Team. As they reunite as a unit and work together, they find out that nothing is what it seems. If Jase and Brooke live through the coming days, will their love be able to endure when the dust settles?

KG Logo

Elle Boone is one of those fantastic writers that is an auto-buy for me. Not only does she write a mean military romance, but she’s also a spell-binding storyteller, and a coffee addict! (You just gotta love a coffee addict!)

Delta Redemption is book number 6 in SEAL Team Phantom, one of my very favorite series by Elle. (Though, I love them all!) Our hero is Jase Tyler, he’s undercover at a cemetery as a groundskeeper named Tyler jackson. He’s at the funeral of a man he believes put him in federal prison. Jase had exposed a mole in federal government, and because of it, he’d had to fake his own death in a car explosion, then he’s put in prison for 6 months.

Brooke Frazee is devastated by the death of her father, admiral Mark Frazee. It’s bad enough she lost the love of her life and father of her son, Jase. When 2 men attempt to break in to her apartment, Jase appears back from the dead to save the day. He looks at her son and puts 2 and 2 together. Brooke thinks Jase is a traitor, but she needs his help to stay safe and the two of them need the help of Jase’s old team to find out who set Jase up and why they are in danger. This is a fast-paced story with a roller coaster ride of suspense and hot, sexy love scenes that will blow you away. I’ll admit, I am NOT a big fan of secret baby romances, but Elle did this one up right!

March Wind (Wilder Irish book 3 ) by Mari Carr

Title: March Wind by Mari Carr

Date of Publication: September 12, 2017

Blurb

Even if I’d known I would lose Sunday McCormick Collins so early, I would have married that beautiful woman. What we shared is all I’ve ever wanted for my children and my grandchildren. Love isn’t about the happy ending. It’s about the happiness found each and every day you’re together. – Patrick “Pop” Collins

Padraig Collins loves his bartending job at Pat’s Pub, the Baltimore hangout owned by his equally beloved family. He’s young, carefree, filled with starry-eyed hopes and dreams for his future…which are irrevocably thrown off course when patron Mia Curtis comes into the bar, visibly upset. When she leaves in tears, Padraig follows. He hopes to give the young woman comfort and assurance. What he gets in return is a massive dose of reality.

Mia has a ticking time bomb in her head, an inoperable tumor, with a diagnosis of only six months to live. As Padraig lets her cry on his shoulder, listens to her heartbreakingly detail the things she’ll never get to experience, he’s forced to face some hard facts about the way he’s lived his own life up to this point. Meandering through each day as if youth means immortality, and he has all the time in the world.

An evening of soul-searching leads to a life-changing decision—Padraig will help Mia accomplish everything on her bucket list. He won’t let her die with a single regret. But that goal transforms into something far deeper when Padraig falls in love with the courageous woman. His once endless future shrinks to months instead of years, accompanied by a crushing sense of desperation.

Until they realize life isn’t measured in time. It’s measured in moments…

This story will hopefully widen your definition of a traditional happy-ever-after. Not all of us get the luxury of a lifetime…but that doesn’t mean we can’t have a lifetime’s worth of love in the time we’re given.

KG Logo

I love Mari Carr, yes I do. But seriously, she made me go through my entire supply of tissues with this book. And I had a LOT of them! If you are looking for a happy ending where the guy gets the girl and they have 2.5 kids and a dog and all that, this book isn’t for you. But…if you want to read a book about what real love looks like, even if it has an expiration date, you’ll love March Wind. And I’m not sure this review can do the book justice.

This was a wonderful, if not tough at times, book to read. Padraig Connor is the son of Tris and Lane Connor. He mans the bar at Pat’s place. Mia Curtis has been coming there a couple nights a week since moving to town. But one night, Padraig notices she’s not her usual self. When she leaves the bar, he follows her.

Finding out she isn’t going to live a full life because of a terminal illness, Padraig decides to step up and help her fulfill items on her list of things to do so she won’t have regrets. Things like seeing the ocean, going to Paris, and eating a cake that is all her own with just her hands.The entire Collins clan pitches in to make sure Mia has love, laughter, and family for the short time she has left.

I’m telling you folks, grab that box of tissues. And make it a full one, because you don’t want to miss a word of this. Bravo Mari Carr, Bravo!

Shelter For Sophie (Badge of Honor Series Book 8) by Susan Stoker

Rock Star Logo

Susan Stoker

Shelter for Sophie

Badge of Honor: Texas Heroes Book 8

Release Date August 15, 2017

Shelter for Sophie Ebook CoverBlurb:

She’s shy, he’s stoic…not the hardest personality traits to overcome, but Sophie Carson and Roman “Chief” Proudfit have their work cut out for them.

Sophie has a crush on the silent-but-studly firefighter next door. She’s been pining away silently while secretly helping the hardworking man by mowing his lawn—which he thinks is being done by her nonexistent husband and/or boyfriend. He’s definitely not big on neighborly chitchat, but with her stutter, that suits Sophie just fine. But now a misunderstanding at a bar has put him even further out of her reach.

Roman’s difficult upbringing on an Indian reservation is a sore spot, so when he thinks Sophie is taking advantage of poor people for medical trials at her workplace, he lets her know exactly what he thinks. But when he discovers he misunderstood, he’s man enough to admit it…and also that he should have opened his eyes to his beautiful, sensitive neighbor sooner.

As the couple gets closer, each helping the other overcome lifelong pains, for the first time in years, Roman has something to live for other than his job. And, as he discovers when Sophie puts herself in danger, something even bigger to lose…

** Shelter for Sophie is the 8th book in the Badge of Honor: Texas Heroes Series. Each book is a stand-alone, with no cliffhanger endings.

KG Logo

Susan Stoker is one of my absolute favorite authors. Her heroes have everyday jobs and are sexy alphas who protect and love heroines who find themselves in precarious situations. And one of the things that I love most is that her heroines aren’t perfect. They aren’t size 4 women who have wonderful lives. They have real problems, like seizure disorders, and they stutter, just like our heroine in this novel, Sophie.

I can empathize with these ladies because I live with chronic health issues myself, and I’m certainly not perfect. I have my own alpha hero as well. Sophie is the next-door neighbor to Chief, who works at Station 7 with Penelope, Moose, Squirrel and the others we’ve met. She’s had a crush on her Navajo neighbor for the past year, but he thinks she has a boyfriend and he even gave her 20 dollars one day after she mowed his lawn to thank her boyfriend.

Sophie is hanging out at the Sloppy Cow one night after work with her friends from the burn lab and they are discussing her crush on Chief, she has no clue that he’s listening in the high-backed booth behind her. When Chief mistakenly overhears how Sophie recruits patients for her studies, he becomes angry and confronts her, soon finding out he’s made a huge error.  Chief slowly gets to know Sophie through her friends and co-workers, even the one doctor who is a real jerk.

There are a couple of heart-stopping incidents in this story, and we get to know a bit of the Navaho culture through Chief’s telling Sophie, and Sophie is just and amazing woman who shows compassion to everyone no matter the circumstance. Just an amazing book from Ms Stoker.

Nothing is more important to Blake Anderson than the work he does with his brothers at Ace Security. At least that’s what he thinks until he meets the fiercely independent Alexis Grant. The security firm’s new intern pushes all his buttons—and makes his temperature rise. But giving in to temptation might be risky business.

Alexis can tell that Blake has his doubts about her ability to commit. But while most people look at her and see only a flighty rich girl, she knows he sees much more. Determined to prove herself to Blake, Alexis jumps at the chance to work undercover. And when her case takes a dangerous turn, she puts her trust—and her heart—in his hands.

Now, as Alexis digs into the deadly secrets of a local gang, Blake will lay everything on the line to protect the woman he’s come to love.

Alexis Grant had worked for Ace security for 3 months and had been helping with the case against the Masons (You’ll want to see book one!) when she fell hard for Blake Anderson. Of course, Blake is concerned with how long Alexis is going to stick around. She does have a bad habit of hopping around from job to job. Alexis figures since Blake wants nothing to do with her, she’ll just quit when her assignment is over.

 

But her assignment is to go after the gang that was paid to kidnap her brother, The Inca Boyz. And she wants to help way more than just social media searches. Blake gains a new respect for Alexis, but he isn’t happy at just how far she’ll go to prove herself, especially when her life is in danger.

 

I loved Blake in this book! What a super, sexy, protective alpha. And Alexis was a warm and wonderful woman who was so right for Blake, but typical of Ms. Stoker’s heroine’s she has had a difficult upbringing in life and people have not treated her well. It’s up to Blake and family to show her just how worthy she really is. And I’ve always loved the fact that she isn’t afraid to allow the heroine to go through some violence and trauma and to let the hero really shine!
