LOVE CAN HAPPEN IN A HEARTBEAT.

Grace never thought she’d be starting her life over from scratch. Losing everything has landed her in Lucky Harbor, working as a dog walker for overwhelmed ER doctor Josh Scott. But the day his nanny fails to show up, Grace goes from caring for Josh’s loveable mutt to caring for his rambunctious kids. Soon Grace is playing house with the sexy single dad…

With so many people depending on him, Josh has no time for anything outside of his clinic and family–until Grace arrives in town. Now this brainy blonde is turning his life inside out and giving a whole new meaning to the phrase “good bedside manner.” Josh and Grace don’t know if what they have can last. But in a town like Lucky Harbor, a lifetime of love starts with just one day.

BOOK BEGINNINGS:

Tired, edgy, and scared that she was never going to get her life on the happy track, Grace Brooks dropped into the back booth of the diner and sagged against the red vinyl seat. “I could really use a drink.”

FRIDAY 56:

Josh pushed to his feet and met Grace on the edge of the dance floor.
She smiled. “You dance?”
He gave her a boogie move that had gotten him laid once or twice in college and made her laugh. “I didn’t know,” she said.
“There’s a lot you don’t know about me.”
“Like the time you and the sheriff got drunk and went streaking on the pier?” she asked sweetly.
He sighed. “Why do you listen to Anna?”
She was grinning wide. “Did you really?”
“Yeah.” He grimaced, making her laugh again.
“Honesty,” she said. “I like that. Is lying against the doctor’s oath or something?”
“Hell, no. I lie all the time. Just tonight, on the walk from my car to the pier, I told Mrs. Lyons that she was looking good.”
“Is she the one wearing the chartreuse green spandex shorts?”

MY THOUGHTS:

It's a reread for today. I always love going back to any Lucky Harbor book and giving it a reread. If you're on the lookout for a cute, sweet and fun read, Lucky Harbor by Jill Shalvis is a series for you. I just recently read Pipe Dreams and the daughter of the hero was not very lovable in the book, so I felt like rereading a book with a cute kid and a sweet romance and Forever and a Day seemed like a perfect choice for it.

(Click on the title to know more about it on goodreads.)
 Author:  Nalini Singh
Genre: Paranormal Romance, Adult, Urban Fantasy
Publication Date:  September 21st, 2017(Kindle Edition)


Goodreads Summary:

Enter New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh’s breathtakingly passionate Guild Hunter world with the story of a woman who isn’t a vampire or an angel…or human…

Once a broken girl known as Sorrow, Holly Chang now prowls the shadowy gray underground of the city for the angels. But it’s not her winged allies who make her a wanted woman—it’s the unknown power coursing through her veins. Brutalized by an insane archangel, she was left with the bloodlust of a vampire, the ability to mesmerize her prey, and a poisonous bite.

Now, someone has put a bounty on her head…

Venom is one of the Seven, Archangel Raphael’s private guard, and he’s as infuriating as he is seductive. A centuries-old vampire, his fangs dispense a poison deadlier than Holly’s. But even if Venom can protect Holly from those hunting her, he might not be able to save himself—because the strange, violent power inside Holly is awakening.

I'm waiting because...


If you know this series, you'll know why I'm excited to read Venom's book! Guild Hunter is an amazing series by an amazing author Nalini Singh. And Venom's book is just one of the most anticipated books in the series. This series has everything Archangels, angels, vampires, hunters and humans and its amazing.

9833184Goodreads Summary: 

Sydney Sage is an Alchemist, one of a group of humans who dabble in magic and serve to bridge the wolds of humans and vampires. They protect vampire secrets - and human lives.

In The Indigo Spell, Sydney was torn between the Alchemist way of life and what her heart and gut were telling her to do. And in one breathtaking moment that Richelle Mead fans will never forget, she made a decision that shocked even her...

But the struggle isn't over for Sydney. As she navigates the aftermath of her life-changing decision, she still finds herself pulled in too many directions at once. Her sister Zoe has arrived, and while Sydney longs to grow closer to her, there's still so much she must keep secret. Working with Marcus has changed the way she views the Alchemists, and Sydney must tread a careful path as she harnesses her profound magical ability to undermine the way of life she was raised to defend. Consumed by passion and vengeance, Sydney struggles to keep her secret life under wraps as the threat of exposure — and re-education — looms larger than ever.

Pulses will race throughout this smoldering fourth installment in the New York Times bestselling Bloodlines series, where no secret is safe.

BOOK BEGINNINGS:

I WON’T LIE. Walking into a room and seeing your girlfriend reading a baby-name book can kind of make your heart stop.

FRIDAY 56:

“I will,” she assured me, nodding eagerly. “I’ll be just like you.” “I know you’ll do a great job.” I actually meant it. She was smart and competent—and now motivated.

MY THOUGHTS:

I just started this book. Loving the series so far, so I'm excited to read this book. The excitement has doubled because its Adrian's pov!! I love how Adrian always seems to be in awe of Sydney's intelligence and has full confidence in her.

 Author:  Jill Shalvis
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Adult, Women Fiction, Chick Lit
Publication Date:  June 16th, 2017


Goodreads Summary:

They say life can change in an instant…

After losing her sister in a devastating car accident, chef Quinn Weller is finally getting her life back on track. She appears to have it all: a loving family, a dream job in one of L.A.’s hottest eateries, and a gorgeous boyfriend dying to slip an engagement ring on her finger. So why does she feel so empty, like she’s looking for a missing piece she can’t find?

The answer comes when a lawyer tracks down Quinn and reveals a bombshell secret and a mysterious inheritance that only she can claim. This shocking revelation washes over Quinn like a tidal wave. Her whole life has been a lie.

On impulse, Quinn gives up her job, home, and boyfriend. She heads up the coast to the small hometown of Wildstone, California, which is just a few hours north, but feels worlds apart from Los Angeles. Though she doesn’t quite fit in right away, she can’t help but be drawn to the town’s simple pleasures…and the handsome, dark-haired stranger who offers friendship with no questions asked.

As Quinn settles into Wildstone, she discovers there’s another surprise in store for her. The inheritance isn’t a house or money, but rather something earthshattering, something that will make her question everything she thought she knew about herself, about her family. Now with a world of possibilities opening up to Quinn, she must decide if this new life is the one she was always meant to have—and the one that could finally give her the fulfillment she’s searched so long for.

I'm waiting because...

This week’s book: 


34218879Goodreads Summary: 

A great goalie always makes the save, even when he’s taken a shot to the heart… 

Mike Beacon is a champion at guarding the net, but off the ice, he’s not so lucky. A widower and a single father, he’s never gotten over Lauren Williams, the ex who gave him the best year of his life. When Lauren reappears in the Bruisers' office during the play-offs, Beacon sees his chance to make things right. 


Lauren hates traveling with the team she used to manage and with the man who broke her heart. There’s still undeniable sexual tension running between her and Mike, but she won’t go there again. She’s focused on her plans for the future—she doesn’t need a man to make her dreams of motherhood come true. 

Lauren plays her best defensive game, but she’s no match for the dark-eyed goalie. When the field of play moves to Florida, things heat up on the beach. 

Only one of Mike’s fans doesn’t approve—his teenage daughter. But a true competitor knows not to waste the perfect shot at love.

BOOK BEGINNINGS: 

Brooklyn, April 2016 The first time Lauren Williams ever drank a shot of whiskey in front of her boss was the night the Brooklyn Bruisers clinched a play-offs berth for the first time since Nate Kattenberger bought the team.

FRIDAY 56:


Mercifully, the last four were played at the other end of the ice. Somehow the fight had lit a fire under his guys. They skated like demons, which led to an ugly goal by Trevi in front of the net with less than thirty seconds left in the period.


MY THOUGHTS:


I just finished reading this book before writing this post and it was a nice read. Not my favourite in the series but still it was good. Sarina Bowen is a nice author and you must have guessed by now that this series is about Ice Hockey players and we follow some of their romance lives with great anticipation filled games.
