Andre by Sybil Bartel – Review by Layna

André

The Marines trained me to set my sights and wait for the shot. For eight years, I guarded my brothers and defended my country. Now I protect my clients. My personal security firm is the best in the business because I leave nothing to chance… until a dark-haired, hazel-eyed spitfire crosses my path.

She and her sexy-as-hell striptease were supposed to be a one-night distraction. But too late I noticed the branding on her back and my blood ran cold. This woman wasn’t a distraction—she was a death sentence.

Knowing who she was left me no choice. I took her on as my client. But running from her past wasn’t an option.

The Marines didn’t train me to retreat. They taught me to engage.

One shot. One kill.

The Billionaires: The Stepbrothers by Calista Fox – Review by Layna

This pair of stepbrothers have their sights set on just one woman…

Scarlet Drake is an insurance fraud investigator hot on the heels of the thief who stole a multimillion-dollar art collection from tycoon Michael Vandenberg’s Hamptons estate. Unfortunately, the sexy Wolf of Wall Street is also her prime suspect–along with his equally mouthwatering stepbrother, Montana rancher Sam Reed. Scarlet quickly finds herself tangled up in the two devilishly handsome men, and ensnared in a web of family lies.

Michael is used to getting what he wants–and he wants Scarlet in his bed. Sam had no intention of getting emotionally or romantically involved with a woman again, but he can’t deny the sizzling chemistry with Scarlet. And when the three of them cave to one sinfully delicious night of sheer decadence, their sexy menage becomes a fiery affair of the heart. But they don’t stand a chance at a happily ever after unless all of the absolute truths are finally revealed…

From the Ruins by Janine Infante Bosco – Review by Layna

“Pipe”

In every man’s life there comes a day of reckoning. It’s the day darkness is exposed and sinners are punished for their trespasses.

A day when loyalty is destroyed and a man is left in ruins.

When he walks away from his club and loses his religion.

Whoever said from the ruins they will rise again never walked a mile in my shoes or the pair of red ones I was left holding.

“Layla”

He’s bitter, cold and angry.

He’s seen his share of heartache.

Lived through tragedy and despair.

He’s my neighbor.

The man I know should stay away from.

The man who will destroy what’s left of me if I get too close.

He’s Lee Jameson, and I’m Layla Milano.

This is our story.

The story of two people left in ruins forced to rise again.

Guarding Greatness by Lena Jakes – Review by Layna

Gage Martin is protective of his friends, his past, and his heart. He’s seen true love, but doesn’t trust it – so he vowed long ago to live his life in darkness with no ties or roots as he puts out political fires around the world.

Genna VanJohnson is an every-woman – as much as she can be while also being the cousin to a Prince. She knows that a giant spotlight is never far away from her family, and does everything she can to live a normal life for as long as she can – before the spotlight finds her.

Gage and Genna find their worlds colliding when the small island chain Genna calls home becomes the center of a political game of cat and mouse. They’ve been partners in the past, but when the job – and the partner – get personal, they will have to decide if their pasts will bind them together, or tear them apart.

The Shift of the Tide by Jeffe Kennedy – Review by Layna

A QUICKSILVER HEART

Released from the grip of a tyrant, the Twelve Kingdoms have thrown all that touch them into chaos. As the borders open, new enemies emerge to vie for their hard-won power—and old deceptions crumble under the strain…

The most talented shapeshifter of her generation, Zynda has one love in her life: freedom. The open air above her, the water before her, the sun on her skin or wings or fur—their sensual glories more than make up for her loneliness. She serves the High Queen’s company well, but she can’t trust her allies with her secrets, or the secrets of her people. Best that she should keep her distance, alone.

Except wherever she escapes, Marskal, the Queen’s quiet lieutenant, seems to find her. Solid, stubborn, and disciplined, he’s no more fluid than rock. Yet he knows what she likes, what thrills and unnerves her, when she’s hiding something. His lithe warrior’s body promises pleasure she has gone too long without. But no matter how careful, how tender, how incendiary he is, only Zynda can know the sacrifice she must make for her people’s future—and the time is drawing near…
