Landon & Shay AMAZON (1).jpg

Once upon a time, I fell in love with a boy.
A beautiful, broken boy who had his own world of struggles.

People warned me against our love, but I didn’t listen.
We looked weak.
Young, foolish.
Dangerously in love.
We didn’t care.

In order to keep our hearts protected from the opinions of others, we became each other’s secret.
We shared stolen moments. Tender touches. Secretive embraces.

It was our twisted love story, and it worked for us up until our lives changed forever.
The boy I loved became Hollywood’s newest golden boy.
His career blossomed as mine stalled.
He found massive success as I discovered multiple failures.
He made something of himself, while my dreams never came true.
We moved into different realms where our pieces no longer fit together.

In the fairy tales, love conquered all.
In reality, love was the main reason empires began to fall.
I always knew Landon belonged in my story.
He was my beginning, middle, and end.
The only problem? I wasn’t certain I still belonged in his.

Release Blitz + Review: A Fairbanks Affair by Katy Regnery – Odds Are Good Series – Book 3

 

New York Times bestselling author Katy Regnery returns with the third book in her Odds-Are-Good series!

 

Three nights. Two of us. One bed. Zero chance at love.
Boston businesswoman, Faye Findley, has devoted the last decade of her life to work, leaving no time for romance. Tired of being a 30-year-old virgin, Faye answers an ad in The Odds Are Good magazine, hoping to turn over her v-card to a sexy Alaskan she’ll never see again. 
Successful distillery owner, Trevor Starling, was left betrayed and broken-hearted when his brother and fiancée had sex the night before Trevor’s wedding. Anticipating a lonely New Year’s celebration, he places an ad in The Odds Are Good for a no-strings attached weekend of hot sex. 
Though mistaken identity threatens to derail everything, the chemistry between Faye and Trevor turns out to be stronger than either could have imagined. And what started out as a one-and-done mission becomes much more complicated.

Michel’s Review
A Fairbanks Affair by Katy Regnery is the third book in the Odds- Are – Good Series. This Alaska themed romance series is a pure joy to read. Katy Regnery has a gift of creating engaging, fun, sexy, and emotional romances that today’s contemporary woman can relate to. When I read the synopsis for this book my first thought were a thirty year old virgin woman was a bit far fetched but once the reader meets Faye Findley it all works.
*
 The first thing that caught Faye’s attention while waiting in the dentist office was The Odds -Are -Good magazine opened to the personal classified. How could she ignore an ad that read….
  …..Three nights. Two of us. One bed. Zero chance at love….
*
Impossible for Faye resist an add like that. She has been so focused on her career that she overlooked her basic personal life. She concentrated on keeping the family business going after her parents deaths and raising her younger sister. She made her choices, the company has grown and become the leading alcohol distributer throughout the world. She sacrificed her personal life while her relationship with her sister has become strained do to work. Ten years has taken it’s toll on her relationships. When she sees the Fairbanks personal add it gives her an opportunity not only to “take care of necessary personal business” but also acquire another distillery. A quick Fairbanks affair with no strings is perfect until she meets Trevor Starling.
*
Trevor Starling has been betrayed, burned, and broken. He has no desire to get into another relationship. He decides to advertise for a New Years holiday date with no strings attached. When he received several responses to his ad he quickly deleted most of them until he comes to one ad.  The response is classy, straightforward, and acknowledged her understanding of his date criteria.  After seeing her picture how could he turn the opportunity down?
*
When Faye and Trevor finally meet the fun begins. First there is the mistaken identity from the Odds Are Good ad and the distillery. The New Year is going to be more than a celebration filled with fun sex, lost virginity, and fireworks but also an eye opening emotional lesson in learning how to connect intimately with other people. They will both learn to come to terms with the past and strained relationships. The best lesson of all is learning how to love completely and learning to accept love unconditionally.
*
Katy Regnery has once again delivered a fantastic romance that kept me fully engaged in her story. I closed the book with a smile and happy heart!

Michel’s Review

Renegade by Chantal Fernando is the second book in Knights of Fury MC series. Although this is a biker series, it has more of a milder tone rather than the darker themed activities that are in most MC books.  Renegade is more of a charming boy next door romance with a little of drama and suspense added in to make the story a bit more intriguing.

Izzy has lived next door to the Knights of Fury MC and has never had any issues with them. When her sister goes into labor, she is in a rush to get to her. Her car breaks down and her neighbors, The Knights step in. They rescue her and take her to her sister so she doesn’t miss the birth of her niece. Thus begins the courtship of Izzy and Renny.

This charming romance had the right amount steam and the right amount of swoon. It may not be the most intense romance or thrilling MC romance but it did leave me with a big smile and happy heart.

Chantal Fernando always delivers a romance that warms the soul.

Michel’s Review

Two Thousand Lines is the first book I have read by author Michelle Jester. This edgy YA novel touches upon topics of abuse and may have emotional triggers. The title of the book is taken from the punishments Olivia received from an early age. Mr. Melvin, her abusive stepfather, did everything in two thousands.

The storyline flashes back from the past to the present. Readers witness the disturbing abuse Olivia has to endure throughout her youth while trying to overcome the past in the present.

Olivia meets her neighbor’s grandson Luke after her death. Luke has heard all about Olivia through letters from his grandmother. Although he felt like he knew a lot about Olivia there was so much more that the words in the letters could describe. He wants to get to know her better and build a friendship but knows Olivia still needs time to heal from her past.

The author paints a vivid picture of Olivia’s life and has the reader wanting Olivia to overcome her past and grasp a happy life. This is Olivia’s story of survival and the courage to move on.

At times the story was a bit confusing and the pacing was a bit off but overall I was thoroughly involved with this gripping, heartbreaking story.
