~Review: Playing Doctor by Jan Meredith~

One night with a sexy stranger is just what the doctor ordered...

When a fellow RN predicts Beth Roberts will meet a tall, ripped, and totally lick-o-licious stranger who will fulfill her deepest desires, she laughs it off. Given her tragic love life, Beth has no desire to become involved again. But who could have predicted the doctor with the mischievous smile she meets at a wedding, or the chemistry sparking between them that threatens to break through her defenses?

Dr. Gabriel North spent two years blaming himself for his wife’s death. Having finally battled through the guilt and overcome his demons, he’s ready to move on. When he meets a sexy nurse at his friend’s wedding, the attraction is swift and strong, and he wastes no time in pressing his advantage. One night with the woman who makes him feel alive again isn’t enough, but gaining Beth’s trust is going to take more than seduction…

Overall Rating:  4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆

Playing Doctor is a quick read novella that sizzles from the moment you begin reading the book.  The characters are beautifully scripted and developed with hot erotic fantastical designs.  

Beth Roberts is a survivor.  She raised her son by herself and has held a career as the head RN at the local hospital.  Never one to indulge in anything for herself, she begins to long for anything romance, even if just for one night.  When she goes with her son on a photo shoot for a wedding, she meets Mr. Lick-o-licious, a talk dark and handsome doctor who invokes seductively erotic fantasies within her.  Just for one night, she wants this man.

Gabriel North has been tormented by the death of his wife for years.  Sure he's had women in his bed since her death, but none have ever captured his attention for more than that.  Maybe because he can't seem to forgive himself for what happened to his wife.  Then at his friend's wedding, the phenomenal Nurse Beth walks into his life.  Wanting to know more he asks Beth to join him for a drink and little did he realize he would want more.

Will Gabe and Beth be able to put their distraught pasts behind them?  Can Beth finally open up her heart to love again?  Will Gabe take another chance?  Read this book to find out!

What a wonderfully written story, that made me feel so much and at the same time totally satisfied.  I was instantly obsessed and wanting more!  Medicinal magic, Jan! ~TSRBR

~Review: Crashing Down by Cathryn Fox~

When reckless meets responsible... Straight A student Kathryn Lane is all work and no play. She's determined to keep her scholarship, and that means no distractions...until she takes a summer internship at Stone Cliff Resort and meets bad boy Noah Ryan. She knows she should keep her distance-after all he's not the kind of guy she can bring home to daddy-but his disarming smile and dangerous ways are entirely too tempting. College dropout, Noah Ryan takes one look at Kathryn and instantly knows her type-ambitious, driven and determined, just like he used to be, before the accident that derailed his life and left him an emotional wreck. He vows to avoid her, but when a co-worker backs him into a bet he can't refuse, everything he's been running from is challenged and he's forced to confront his demons. Soon, Kathryn and Noah are lost to everything except each other. As their lives become entwined, their passion is reckless, their heat all-consuming but when hurtful truths spill out, can Noah prove himself worthy of the one girl who can heal his wounded heart, or will the fire they ignited turn to ash when it all comes crashing down?

Overall Rating:  4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆

Crashing Down is Cathryn Fox's newest novel.  It's a summer romance with a heart-felt twist.  The author created an incredible connection between all of the characters as well as the depth and feelings for each personality.  I was deeply submerged in the story from the delicately written script this author constructed.  

Noah Ryan has many demons.  He dropped out of college after a fatal accident that left him questioning himself, his work ethics, and life.  After taking a job at the Stone Cliff Resort in the heart of Alberta's Rocky Mountains, he vowed that he didn't deserve to be happy and simple was better.  Noah was known at the resort as the playboy and no strings attached was his motto.  Until a bright, beautiful red head comes to work at the resort; he vows to stay away from her type, but she awakens emotions in him that he never wanted or thought he deserved.

Kathryn Lane is an overworked college student who is trying to please her father.  Her dad has her future mapped out which includes working along side him in the business world.  Kathryn has always wanted something different, but to please her father she continues down the road of business.  All of that changes when she takes a job at the Stone Cliff Resort for the summer.  She meets the infamous Noah Ryan and her whole world changes.

This beautiful story brought me such a sense of belonging and love.  I felt so deeply involved in the development of the tragedy, as if I was a part of it all.  A superb summer sensation, Cathryn.

Hero -  Noah Ryan 4.5 stars
Heroine - Kathryn Lane 4.5 stars
Steam Level: 4.0 stars
Plot: 4.5 stars
Cliffhanger: No

Would I recommend this book: Yes!  Unquestionably!  This story will capture your heart and leave you feeling beautifully caressed.  If you want a book to fill you with joy, READ THIS BOOK!  

Would I read other books by this author: Yes! This is the first time I have read anything by Cathryn Fox and I totally loved it!  She is now on my TBR radar!

excerpt

It hurts too much, way too much. I don’t know how to rid myself of this stabbing pain in my heart. He left, he just left me. It may not have been his choice, but that doesn’t mean anything. It still hurts all the same. I lay in his bed, not moving, not eating. Hell, trying not to even think. I just sleep. People come and visit, trying to help me move, but I don’t see the point.

Synopsis
She’s a rock goddess.
He’s a sex pistol.
I need them both, in my life and in my bed, and I'm not living without either one of them.
I’ll do whatever it takes to keep them there, even if it costs me everything I ever wanted.
I’m Tommy Blade, The Prince of Punk Rock, and this is the rest of our story.

When Jessi Blade is forced to miss the first leg of Immortal Angel’s world tour, Tommy Blade and Angel Garcia are alone together for the first time. Their romance flourishes and brings them closer together, but time apart puts a strain on Tommy and Jessi’s marriage. The demanding schedule of a world tour, pressure from the record label and a wife who feels neglected, leaves Tommy under a blanket of anxiety. He’s helpless as his perfect life slowly falls to pieces.

When Jessi finally catches up to Tommy and Angel four weeks into their world tour, she begins to feel like an outsider. She’s not about to take a back seat to Angel and she competes for Tommy’s attention. Tired of the rivalry, she begins to wonder if they’d be happier without her.

Angel is trying to hold their relationship together, but Jessi’s animosity and Tommy’s nervous tension, are a heavy load to carry. Before long, it becomes clear that their life, and the band, are doomed unless they work out their differences.




Catch up with The Prince of Punk Rock (Radical Rock Stars Book One)

PPRcover
I love her, but I also love him. 
She’s everything to me. 
He sets my world on fire. 
It's our dirty little secret, and it’s about to blow our record deal sky high. 
I’m Tommy Blade, the Prince of Punk Rock, and this is our story. 


Tommy Blade is a man with a secret. It’s a secret he only shares with one person, Jessi Blade – and the men he surrenders to in the bedroom. Jessi’s only condition to their tumultuous sex life is that the men are one night stands. But when Angel Garcia enters their life, it’s like a match to gasoline. 


Mega-talented punk rock singer Angel Garcia, with his smoldering ebony eyes, tight leather pants and unstoppable stage presence, is a man who is used to getting what he wants. He has his eyes set on Tommy Blade as his new lead guitarist, and as his life partner. 


Jessi Blade, sympathetic to her husband's bisexual needs, loves him enough to share him, but she never counted on Angel Garcia to test the threshold of her marriage. He makes her life hell . . . and heaven. He’s her damnation and her salvation. She wants to hate him. She wants to despise him. But his charm and raw sex appeal are impossible to resist. Without warning, she finds herself falling in love with her husband's gay lover. 


At the height of it all, their punk rock band catapults to stardom. 


Their lives are marred by secrecy, deception and sacrifice. Feelings of betrayal, backlash from the sensationalistic media and threats of blackmail send them down a hard road filled with tough decisions. 


They aren't your ordinary rock stars. They're radical rock stars. And they have a big story to tell.
