orn into a long line of spies, sanctioned killers and covert weapons developers, Beth Faraday carried out her first hit-for-hire when she was still a teenager.

That part of her life–the American spy royalty part–ended one year ago, with a job gone wrong in Afghanistan. The collateral damage she caused with a single shot was unfathomable and, for Beth, unforgiveable. She’s worked hard to build a new life for herself, far away from the family business.

But someone, somewhere, hasn’t forgotten what Beth did in Kabul. And they want revenge.

As the Faraday clan bands together to defend Beth and protect their legacy, Beth is forced to flee her new home with the unlikeliest of allies–MI6 agent Raleigh Vick, the only man she’s ever loved. And the one she thought she’d killed in the desert.

Review: It’s In His Kiss by JIll Shalvis

It’s In His Kiss by Jill Shalvis
Publisher: Grand Central Publishing
Series: Lucky Harbor, Book 10
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Length: 368 pages

Amazon Kindle

This review copy was provided by the publisher through NetGalley for an honest review.

Summary:

ONE KISS CAN LAST FOREVER

Becca Thorpe has uprooted her life and escaped to the beach. Now’s her chance to get away from city living, throw caution to the ocean winds, and live in the moment. Especially if the moment includes the deliciously sexy surfer she meets shortly after arriving in Lucky Harbor. Something about the dark intensity of Sam’s eyes and the thrill she gets at his touch convinces her to stay awhile.

Boatbuilder and investment genius Sam Brody is a self-made man who knows how dangerous it can be to mix business and pleasure. But he can’t resist offering Becca a job just to hear her laugh and have her near. Yet when her brother comes to town asking for help, will he tempt her back to her glamorous life in the city? Or do Sam and little Lucky Harbor have a chance to win Becca’s heart?

AJ’s Review:

FREAK-IN-FAN-TAS-TIC! Jill Shalvis has penned another amazing Lucky Harbor story that’s full of emotional upheaval, humor, passion, sensuality, friendship and love because these are only a fraction of the things you will enjoy while reading It’s In His Kiss. Sam is one sexy no-nonsense alpha with a heart of gold. He cares about his friends and his family with everything in his being. I love that he’s a man who learned the importance of showing his feelings through action because as they say, action speaks louder than words. Yet on the flip side, there are times when a woman just needs the words, which is exactly the predicament that Becca finds herself in when she falls head-over-heels in love with this passionate, intense, sexy, headstrong man.

My heart broke for Becca on many levels because her kindness and sacrifices were all for naught when it came to her family. I loved how Ms. Shalvis hinted throughout the story that Becca had experienced some bad things in her life and allowed the reader to use their imagination. Moreover, I appreciated the fact that Sam knew the importance of gaining Becca’s trust in order to learn all of her dark secrets. I wanted to strangle Nathan and Becca’s family as the ugly truth unfolded regarding everything she had endured. And while Sam would never truly admit it, he was just as much of a broken soul as Becca due to the shenanigans of his father, Mark. Fortunately, people learn from their mistakes and that’s exactly what Sam and Becca are about to discover on their road to Happily Ever After.

The secondary characters were a major factor in the story as they shaped the lives of our hero and heroine. In addition, they provided humor, drama, frustration at times, and ultimately love in all its fascinating glory. The dialogue was rich and flowing, the interaction between the characters were intense, passionate, sensual, and real. Real in the sense that it was easy to relate to Sam and Becca, which truly brought this story to life for me. As always, Lucille was a hoot, Mark was clueless, yet remorseful for all he had done, and the rest of the town provided the encouragement and security that these two characters needed in order to move on in their lives. I loved that Pink and her sister made an appearance in this installment, as it was great to see how they were doing.

If you’re looking for a sexy story that will make you feel at home and as though you’ve known these characters all of your life, then definitely pick up a copy of It’s In His Kiss by Jill Shalvis and experience her brand of cleverness, humor, heart, and fall in love till you laugh stories that will make your heart sing with overwhelming joy.

Sassy, spirited Peyton Clark is back—and she’s not alone!

After agreeing to let the spirit of Drake Montague inhabit her body, Peyton soon discovers that the twentieth-century French policeman may be dead but his lothario longings sure aren’t.

While Peyton is torn between her love for a living man and her growing affection for one deceased, supernatural activity in New Orleans spikes—and something wicked this way comes. With the help of her friends (and a little voodoo), Peyton learns that the demonic spirit of the Axeman may still dwell in her home. To stop bloody history from repeating itself, Peyton will have to travel back a century to confront the Axeman at his roots, with the help of a certain handsome—and suddenly flesh and blood—police officer in the Big Easy.

Author Spotlight: Sugar Daddy by Rie Warren

Amazon Kindle

Shay Greer is pure GRITS—a Girl Raised In The South–but nowhere near a demure southern belle. She’s looking for a way out of her broken down marriage when she lands an unexpected job offer she really should refuse. Position? Mistress. Fringe Benefits? Of course. Fraternization with sexy CEO Reardon Boone? Required.

Shay signs on, lured by the promise of intimacy missing from her failed marriage. She’s barely survived a hellish year of heartbreak and needs a fresh start. Little does she know a clean break is the last thing she’ll get with the mysterious millionaire.

Reardon sticks to his tried and true rules: no-strings-attached seduction, no messy emotions, absolutely nothing resembling a real relationship. This sassy, sultry woman fits the bill precisely…until she arouses more than his erotic appetite.

A shark in the boardroom and a lady killer in the bedroom, Reardon is as irresistible as he is unattainable. Shay falls hard, but his inability to love could tear them apart. She finds out that beneath Reardon’s seductive mask lies a man as tortured as she is.

I wanted to slap him, grab him, have at him. Desperate for space, I plunked back to my chair. I sat on my hands, fists tight beneath my legs, trying not to touch magnificent Mr. Boone. The stormy black clouds of his hair teased me with their wayward curls over his ears. Ears I’d like to tug until his wet mouth skittered against mine, sucking and tasting. The last shreds of the smarts my momma gave me saved me when I was one inch away from turning my lips to his. I shuttled the chair back with an almighty screech. “I ain’t that hard up.” Liar. I hadn’t been caressed or kissed or made love to for so long.

“Really? Why haven’t you left yet, Miss Greer?”

A few steps and I’d be clear of him. I didn’t move. “A mistress?”

“Yes.”

I examined him, quickly working through his tough businessman terms. “And the return on my investment?”

“You’ll be fully compensated financially, and in kind.”

His devastating smile was completely at odds with the company words. My mouth parted but no words came out. He closed in for the kill, holding his lips a hairsbreadth from mine.

“I wouldn’t want you in it just for the money.”

Rat Bastard. Sexy Rat Bastard Reardon Boone with money coming out of his ears. He probably ejaculated thick streams of liquid gold. I shot to my feet. “But…but…I’m married!”

“I know.” He played two fingers along the skin of my inner arm. I jerked away from the brush fire of his touch. “Are you screwin’ with me?”

“Not yet.” Moving behind the barricade of his desk, he reclined in his chair. He weighed one hand. “There’s business.” He held his other hand aloft. “There’s pleasure.” He clapped them together. “I prefer to conduct all my affairs in an orderly manner, on paper at least.”

Being with him in the bedroom would be a whole different matter. I pursed my lips, looked at the door, and shook my head.

“I see. Well then, Miss Greer, you’re free to go.” The fire extinguished from his downcast eyes. He pulled a thumb along the thin chain that hung around his throat and disappeared inside his shirt.

“I know that.” My anger flared, but I didn’t move. Eyes clashing with mine, his cheeks flushed. He didn’t speak, he didn’t move. Everything was on the line: my marriage, my future. Something new. Something borrowed, something blue? My conscience niggled to no avail. I wanted him. Business transaction or not.

Slowly, he approached. His thumb swiped across my mouth, a mere whisper. “I want to be your lover.”

It’d been so long since I’d been touched. I sought his fingertips with my lips. Pulling away before I made contact, his smile shaded into something more proprietary. “Why are you seeking employment, Shay?”

I’d married at the age of nineteen. Palmer had been my first and only. Now I was thirty-three, and he treated me like an unwelcome stranger barging in on his life. “So I can leave my husband.”

“Why?”

“You are not privy to my personal details, Mr. Boone.”

He rubbed a hand down his face, grunting something unintelligible. His next look was clean of all emotion except for toe-curling carnality. “It appears we have something in common, Miss Greer. I want a lover with no strings attached, and you need…” His heated stare detoured over every curve of my body, pausing at my lips before settling on my startled eyes. “A sugar daddy.”

The climactic third novel in New York Times bestselling author Jeaniene Frost’s Night Prince series finds Vlad and his newly turned bride, Leila, at odds with each other—and vulnerable to the one vampire powerful enough to end the Dark Prince’s reign . . .

Play with fire, pay the price

Leila’s years on the carnie circuit were certainly an education. What she didn’t learn: how to be a vampire, or how to be married to the most famous vampire of them all. Adjusting to both has Leila teetering on a knife edge between passion and peril, and now the real danger is about to begin . . .

Vlad must battle with a centuries-old enemy whose reach stretches across continents and whose strength equals his own. It isn’t like Vlad to feel fear, but he does . . . for Leila, because his enemy knows she is Vlad’s greatest weakness. As friend and foe alike align against him—and his overprotectiveness drives Leila away—Vlad’s love for his new bride could be the very thing that dooms them both . . .
