Michel’s Review

Author Pepper Winters is known for bringing the unexpected into her books.  Her dark thrillers have kept readers on the edge of their seats.  Her bold choices in subject matter have earned her the reputation of being the queen of dark romantic thrillers and the queen of angst.  She has a gift of building a story that keeps readers glued to the pages.

Pepper Winters has once again surprised the readers with her latest release of Unseen Messages.  She has stepped out of the dark world and created a completely different reading adventure.  A reading adventure that once again kept me glued to the pages.  The nicest thing about this latest release is that it was a stand alone book.  There were no CLIFFHANGERS!  I didn’t close this book with knots in my stomach.  I closed it with extreme satisfaction.  I marveled at the reading experience.  I was left with the thoughts…What If?  Would I survive?  I also marveled at the journey Pepper created for each of her characters.

I think most of us are intrigued with the idea of being stranded on a deserted island.  We romanticize the theory in our heads, but the reality of it is brutal. Would any of us be able to survive without our cell phones?  Could we live without the comfort of air conditioning, electricity, and automobiles?  Could we forage for food rather than going to the frig or going through a fast food drive through.  Then think about hot showers, soap, deodorant , toothpaste, and body lotion.  Could we survive without pain killers, bandaids, sunscreen, or antiseptics?  A mere scratch could be deadly in a primitive world.

A group of travelers anxious to get to their destinations fall into the hands of fate.  A family eager to reconnect on their long awaited vacation, a young man desperate to begin his penance and redemption, a young woman desperately seeking peace and quiet, and an experienced pilot taking his passengers to their dream destination.  Fate intervenes.  The helicopter crashes.  Lives are lost.  Some survive but the cost is high.  Now the survivors must learn how to survive in a primitive, untouched world.  None of the survivors have the proper skills to exist in a hostile environment.

Two adults and two children will learn a new meaning of life.  A new life with different values and different dreams.  They will learn to become a part of their new existence or perish.  Along the way they will experience life, friendship, love, loss, and renewal.  Their experience will forever change their perception of the world.  It will change their lives.  They are no longer the same people that boarded a helicopter on August 29th.  They have evolved.  Their secrets of the past no longer matter.  Their future is on a new path. Their hopes of rescue may be in vain.

Pepper Winters did a phenomenal job writing this story.  It was very realistic and heart breaking.  She didn’t romanticize the harsh realities of her characters lives.  She didn’t give them the kind of happily ever after we would expect.  She gave them new lives that were molded by their time on an island.

This is a true love story in many ways.  Four people bonded with their complete hearts. The survivors had a new perception of love, life, and happiness.

I highly recommend reading Unseen Messages by Pepper Winters!

Caleb Hall has always been the golden boy of the gridiron. Because of his talent at football, coupled with his father’s wealth, he’s always gotten his way. But when a night of drunken debauchery lands him in hot water with the college athletic board, neither his influential father nor his charming grin can save him. He finds it a total buzz kill when he is sentenced to community service with troubled youth at an inner-city shelter. But his nightmare is only beginning when his greatest high school regret is the very one in charge of the program, and she has him by the balls in more ways than one.

For Avery Prescott, senior year was a nightmare of epic proportions, and Caleb Hall played the lead villain. After she fled her small town for college in the bright lights of Atlanta, she thought she had escaped the painful memories of her past. She never could have imagined Caleb would waltz through the door of the outreach program she presided over. But Avery has news for Caleb—she isn’t the same shy, doormat of a girl she was in high school. Since she holds Caleb’s football future in her hands, she’s more than ready to make payback a real bitch.

Will they stay in the defensive zone or discover that sometimes life’s greatest lessons are learned the hard way?

BLURB:
It finally happened, I lost my virginity. Cue applause and cheers.

For a while life was all rainbows and kittens prancing in a sky full of cotton candy clouds…that was until the demands of the real world set in.

My best friend is getting married and she asked me to be her maid of honor. She’s not worried about flowers, or the dress, or the food at the venue. No, she’s worried about the bachelorette party, what kind of penis crown she will wear, and the nipple size of the stripper who will be attending.

I’m in way over my head trying to balance life with a boyfriend, planning a penis party, and writing my romance novel. Something is bound to give.

This is my life after my happily ever after…

She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.
Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.
Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

Nobody But You

Cedar Ridge Series – Book 3

By Jill Shalvis

Buy : Amazon / B & N / ITunes / Kobo

75d14-goodreads

Synopsis

From New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis…

SOMETIMES YOU CAN GO HOME AGAIN . . .
After an overseas mission goes wrong, Army Special Forces officer Jacob Kincaid knows where he must go to make things right: back home to the tiny town of Cedar Ridge, Colorado. All he needs to scrub away his painful past is fresh mountain air, a lakeside cabin, and quiet solitude. But what he discovers is a gorgeous woman living on a boat at his dock.
Sophie Marren has nowhere else to go. She’s broke, intermittently seasick, and fighting a serious attraction to the brooding, dishy, I’m-too-sexy-for-myself guy who’s now claiming her dock. Something about Jacob’s dark intensity makes her want to tease-and tempt-him beyond measure. Neither one wants to give any ground . . . until they realize the only true home they have is with each other.

Tracey’s Review

“I’ve never seen you look at anyone like that before…You look at her like she’s…”
He slid her a look. “What?”
“Like she’s a double-fudge brownie, warm from the oven.”
“You’re wrong.” He wasn’t looking at her like she was a double-fudge brownie. She was more important than dessert. She was a main course, the base of the food chain.
And hell.
He hadn’t seen her coming.

I know that picking up a book by Jill Shalvis is like a cure for whatever is ailing me. Writing books that are funny, sweet, steamy, and with just the right number of serious moments, Jill creates stories and characters that make it easy to lose yourself in them and emerge having really enjoyed yourself.

I don’t think that there is a man in any of her books that I haven’t adored, but Jacob Kincaid is just, wow. The son of a philandering father with a penchant for making babies far and yon, Jacob and his twin brother, Hud, were blessed to have been welcomed into the patchwork Kincaid family. But Jacob never felt as though he belonged, and was bound and determined to escape their home in Cedar Ridge, CO, as soon as he was able. That decision cost him his family for nine long years, but, now that he’s back, he’s doing all that he can to mend fences and hearts, and create a home for himself with the people that he loves the most. When Jacob makes the acquaintance of Sophie Marren, he has no idea that his world is about to be rocked, in every possible way. Sophie is a firecracker, and a survivor. Recently unencumbered of her lout of an ex-husband, she’s trying to make a new life in her adopted home of Cedar Ridge. Granted, living on a boat that she hates just to infuriate said ex may not be the usual way to get started, but it does have the advantage of a) making her ex crazy, and b) catching the eye of one Jacob Kincaid.

Jacob has been through a tough nine years, and is really looking for a new start and a soft place to land. He’s used to guarding his heart, but, from the moment he lays eyes on Sophie, the walls begin to crack. And, Sophie, burned by love from way back, doesn’t want anything to do with love. Sure, Jacob lights her up like nobody’s business, but that’s as far as it goes. Until, like most best laid plans, lines begin to blur, and feelings come into play, and, well, love does what it does.

I loved the relationship between Jacob and Sophie. The stars were absolutely aligning to bring the both of them just what they needed: each other. For all of that neither of them were looking for anything emotional or long-lasting, the spark between the two of them was instantaneous and explosive.

“How do you know how hungry I am?”
The words-not to mention his voice-gave her a shiver in the very best kind of way. “How hungry are you?” she heard herself whisper.
He let five solid beats go by, during which time he just looked at her. “Frighteningly hungry,” he finally said.
Another woman promptly ran her cart into Sophie’s. “Oh, sorry!” the woman gasped, face red as she hurried off.
“You’re making quite an impression,” Sophie managed dryly.
He shook his head like he disagreed and stepped closer to her, right inside her own personal little space bubble. Now she was in his orbit and in danger of being sucked in and going up in flames.

Fight it as they might, these two are the proverbial moths to the flame for each other, and watching them work that out is fun, humorous, and downright steamy. Because, Jill Shalvis can write the darned sexy time like nobody’s business, and the scenes between Jacob and Sophie should come with a spontaneous combustion warning.

Beyond being a love story, NOBODY BUT YOU is another of Jill’s trademark stories revolving around a cast of characters that we’ve come to know and love, set in a place that we’d all like to call home. I really enjoy the small-town dynamic and close-knit feeling of the Cedar Ridge stories, and the relationship between all of the members of the Kincaid family, because, let me tell you, they are some characters. But what shines forth the most is the love that they have for each other, and the way that, at the end, they have each others’ backs completely. Watching Jacob and Sophie discover this, and find their own places, both in Cedar Ridge, and together, makes this another 5-star read for me. If you haven’t read this series, you’re missing out. Do yourself a favor, and add them to your TBR.
