Book Description:

In this humorously touching novel by the critically acclaimed author of Degrees of Love, a woman is blindsided when her high school sweetheart abandons her after eighteen years of marriage.

At sixteen, Kimberly Kirby thought the only thing she needed to be perfectly happy was to spend the rest of her life with Jay Braxton. Twenty years later, she still believes it. As they proudly watch their daughter, Haley, graduate from high school, she imagines her life is as perfect as anyone could reasonably expect. Jay is a formidable attorney, she a freelance writer, and their love as strong as ever. With Haley heading to UC Berkeley in the fall, Kimberly fantasizes about making love on the kitchen table. She has no clue that Jay’s bags are already packed.

Now divorced and determined to squelch her love for Jay, she accepts a gig writing a sex and dating blog for divorcees. As the Virgin Dater, she is on the hunt for love. No-strings-attached nights with a sexy fireman and moving to San Francisco are just what she needs to boost her battered ego and mend her shattered heart.

But just as she falls hard for a talented young chef, Jay fights to win her back. Torn between her bold new life and the comfort of Jay’s strong arms, she questions if there is too much to forgive. The ten thousand I love yous that had passed Jay’s lips can’t be dismissed, but nor can her newfound freedom and the knowledge that her happiness doesn’t depend on Jay.

This is how a second chance at love should be 

Marriage sometimes ends when one love is fading. Sometimes it ends when another person is involved with somebody else out of the marriage. It is sad but it is better than staying in an unhappy or loveless marriage. Sometimes second chance of love happens after the marriage ended too.

This is a beautiful story of love, family, and moving on. When young people married, the percentage of staying together is low.  The marriage ended in divorced and moving on sometimes is hard. I adore Kimberly. She is a riot, fashionista, good cook, and hilarious. I laugh out loud while reading. I liked this story and how it ends. I wish all failed marriages find their happy ending. I am sure that a lot of women can relate to situations like the book. This is an eye-opener. It is hard to put it down too.

House Beside the River Book by David Burnett

A coming-of-age novel with a strong heroine, a sweet love story, and the eternal struggle between good and evil. 

Running from vile rumors and merciless ridicule, thirteen-year-old Nicole Beaumont flees her home in Parsons Valley, Georgia. She leaves Chris behind, the boy who had been her best-friend-for-life, her soul mate, the one with whom she was supposed to spend her life, and she takes refuge at a boarding school in rural Pennsylvania. 

In the farming community in which she lived, almost any transgression could be tolerated, excused, or overlooked. Any transgression, save one that smacked of sex, and, according to rumor, that was exactly what she and Chris had done while lying on the bank of Parsons Pond. It was a lie, the worst part at any rate, but Chris̶ ̶ refused to deny the rumor. Never again, Nicole vows, will she trust another person as she had trusted Chris. 

Such vows can be difficult to keep, but Nicole perseveres. 

Then, she meets Richard. He seems different from the others. He accepts Nicole as she is. He keeps her secrets. When others doubt her, he stands in her defense. Nevertheless, even as they fall in love, the full story of what happened at Parsons Pond remains off-limits to him, and her memories of Chris, which tempt her, tugging her into the past, threaten to betray her.

Chris re-enters her life in a most unexpected way, and Nicole finds herself emmeshed in a deadly game that pits Chris, the boy she once loved, against Richard, the man who loves her, now, a game from which only one will emerge unscathed. Nicole faces an impossible decision. Which will she choose? Who will live? 

House Beside the River is a romantic, true-to-life coming-of-age novel featuring a violent culture, a strong woman, and a sweet ending. Buy House Beside the River today!

My favorite book by Mr. David Burnett

I read many books by Mr. David Burnett and so far this is my favorite book of his. The story is so different from his previous books so far. This one is extremely good.

It is exceptional. It is suspense. It made me edgy on the couch. It is so good and hard to put it down. Vengeance indeed is so sweet. Nicole is my favorite character. I loved her feistiness, her witty, and above all her strong character. The cover is so beautiful too with an amazing story to devour for.

The sacrifice she had to endure is so worth it in the end. She has an amazing job and very scary and almost cost her life to find justice. I recommend this book who likes to read suspense.

Crazy, Wicked Love by Melissa Foster (The Wickeds: Dark Knights at Bayside)

Scorching heat, laugh-out-loud humor, and swoon-worthy moments abound in this sexy new standalone romance by New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Melissa Foster. 

What happens when the player gets played? 

Sidney Carver has a big problem, and he goes by the name of Dwayne “Gunner” Wicked: six-plus feet of muscular, motorcycle-riding, animal-loving deliciousness. Gunner is her boss, roommate, and best friend. They’ve seen each other through life-altering injuries and unimaginable losses, and they work side by side at Wicked Animal Rescue, fulfilling their passion to save animals. Unfortunately, Gunner is also the man Sidney is in love with, and he's the ultimate player. As her former military comrade, Gunner sees her as his buddy—just one of the guys. Sidney is at her wit’s end, ready to risk the friendship and job she adores for a chance at forever love with the man she can’t live without. Like any good marine, she comes up with a mission. Enter Operation Get My Guy

Gunner loves his life. He has a family he adores, a brotherhood that always has his back, and a host of willing women to warm his bed. As the owner of Wicked Animal Rescue, he saves lives and works with his best friend, Sid, the coolest woman on the planet. When Sid concocts a crazy plan to win his cousin’s heart, Gunner reluctantly agrees to be her wingman. 

Practices heat up as roommates become teammates. Let the wicked fun begin… No cheating. No cliffhangers. Guaranteed to melt panties and leave readers hopelessly in love with the sinfully delicious Wickeds. 

About The Wickeds: Dark Knights at Bayside 
Set on the sandy shores of Cape Cod, the Wickeds feature fiercely protective heroes, strong heroines, and unbreakable family bonds. If you think bikers are all the same, you haven’t met the Dark Knights. The Dark Knights are a motorcycle club, not a gang. Their members stick together like family and will stop at nothing to keep their communities safe. These men are wickedly alpha and intensely loyal, but they are not alphaholes.

I rated this book 5 *****'s 

Roommates should be like Gunner all the time

Ms. Meliissa Foster's books are so addicting. I do not know how she keeps her readers entertained and want more. Crazy Wicked Love is not an exemption.

This book is ahhhmazing. I cannot stop reading until the end. I even reread this book. Sidney and Gunner are insatiable for each other. It just takes a few people to move up their relationship from a roommate, best friend, and finally lovers. Then there are dogs too. This story is so hilarious, emotional, and above all so hot. I adored the bonding of Sidney with her father. I cannot ever experience that since my father went to heaven 17 years ago.

This story is so delightful in so many ways. You will feel the love, friendship, family, and love for animals. I hope to meet Ms. Melissa Foster one day soon. She is one of my favorite authors. She never lets you have a hangover with her books.
