Review:
First off can I say how much I love this synopsis? It totally reminds me of When Harry Met Sally. I didn't actually read the synopsis until after I read the book and then I thought this is just perfect for this story. Light and fun and cute and everything. 
Alice has just moved to Charleston. She has had a pretty sheltered life since her mom is a bit much and she has finally gotten away to try and do things she has always wanted. She wants to experience as much as she can because she wants to live. Sh…

On My Knees (Bridge #1) by Meredith Wild

Available on Amazon,comAmazon.deGoodreads
Synopsis:

Haunted by the responsibility of caring for her troubled family, Maya Jacobs gave the only answer she could when Cameron asked her to marry him. Years later, entrenched in a soulless professional routine, she distracts herself from the lingering regret of her decision with a “work hard, play hard” lifestyle that guarantees no man will ever find his way into her heart again.

Cameron Bridge has spent the past five years married to the military, trying to escape the painful memory of losing Maya. After fighting his own war in the desert, he starts a new life in New York City, with his siblings, Olivia and Darren, by his side.

When fate brings Maya back to him in the heart of a city filled with its own hopes and shadows, can Cameron find the girl he once loved in the woman she’s become?

Review:

On My Knees started off great and the story hooked me right away, though I will say I never understood Maya. Still a good read.

Maya and Cam used…

Image
Available on Amazon.comAmazon.deGoodreads
Synopsis:

The dead of winter.

An isolated island off the coast of Maine.

A man.

A woman.

A sinister house looming over the sea ...

He's a reclusive writer whose macabre imagination creates chilling horror novels. She's a down-on-her-luck actress reduced to staging kids' puppet shows. He knows a dozen ways to kill with his bare hands. She knows a dozen ways to kill with laughs.

But she's not laughing now. When she was a teenager, he terrified her. Now they're trapped together on a snowy island off the coast of Maine. Is he the villain she remembers or has he changed? Her head says no. Her heart says yes.

It's going to be a long, hot winter.

Review:
Heroes Are My Weakness was a weird read for me. Annie was...strange. And not in a good way. Really her thoughts and actions throughout didn't make that much sense to me.  *spoilers ahead*
Annie was...crazy. Like she talked to her dolls, which could be a bit much at times, but I…

Hard to Be Good (Hard Ink #3.5) by Laura Kaye

Image
Available on Amazon.com * Amazon.de * Goodreads
Synopsis:

Hard Ink Tattoo owner Jeremy Rixey has taken on his brother’s stateside fight against the forces that nearly killed Nick and his Special Forces team a year before. Now, Jeremy’s whole world has been turned upside down—not the least of which by a brilliant, quiet blond man who tempts Jeremy to settle down for the first time ever.

Recent kidnapping victim Charlie Merritt has always been better with computers than people, so when he’s drawn into the SF team’s investigation of his army colonel father’s corruption, he’s surprised to find acceptance and friendship—especially since his father never accepted who Charlie was. Even more surprising is the heated tension Charlie feels with sexy, tattooed Jeremy, Charlie’s opposite in almost every way.

With tragedy and chaos all around them, temptation flashes hot, and Jeremy and Charlie can’t help but wonder why they’re trying so hard to be good...

Hard to Come By (Hard Ink #3) by Laura Kaye

Image
Available on Amazon.com * Amazon.de * Goodreads
Synopsis:

Caught between desire and loyalty…

Derek DiMarzio would do anything for the members of his disgraced Special Forces team—sacrifice his body, help a former teammate with a covert operation to restore their honor, and even go behind enemy lines. He just never expected to want the beautiful woman he found there.

When a sexy stranger asks questions about her brother, Emilie Garza is torn between loyalty to the brother she once idolized and fear of the war-changed man he's become. Derek’s easy smile and quiet strength tempt Emilie to open up, igniting the desire between them and leading Derek to crave a woman he shouldn’t trust.

As the team’s investigation reveals how powerful their enemies are, Derek and Emilie must prove where their loyalties lie before hearts are broken and lives are lost. Because love is too hard to come by to let slip away…

Man I really thought the first book in this series would be my favorite, but someh…

Hard to Hold on To (Hard Ink #2.5) by Laura Kaye

Image
Available on Amazon.com * Amazon.de * Goodreads
Synopsis:

Edward "Easy" Cantrell knows better than most the pain of not being able to save those he loves--which is why he is not going to let Jenna Dean out of his sight. He may have just met her, but Jenna's the first person to make him feel alive since that devastating day in the desert more than a year ago.

Jenna has never met anyone like Easy. She can't describe how he makes her feel--and not just because he saved her life. No, the stirrings inside her reach far beyond gratitude.

As the pair are thrust together while chaos reigns around them, they both know one thing: the things in life most worth having are the hardest to hold on to.

Review:
I started reading Hard to Hold on To and thought it would probably be a fun, quick read but not my favorite thus far. I mean Easy and Jenna falling for each other...great, but I didn't really know either of them well enough from the prior books to already love them and want the…
