Ellie Gorman hasn’t had a vacation in years. Working herself to the bone day and night on Wall Street has kept her mind from wandering too often to the only man she’s ever loved. The man she left fourteen years ago after their high school graduation. When her best friend lures her to join a girls’ cruise, Ellie relents. The sun will do her good. Relaxation is her top priority. No stress for a full week.

Noah Seager has spent more than a decade fulfilling his dream of joining the Navy SEALs and serving his country. But he’s exhausted and worn out. It’s time to retire, find himself, and start a new chapter in his life. A vacation with his best childhood friend is the perfect way to decompress. Even better—a cruise.

Neither Noah nor Ellie are prepared to run into each other at the bar on the lido deck as soon as they board the ship. They’ve been set up, and they plan to toss their meddling friends overboard…as soon as they can find them.

Fourteen years ago they’d been very much in love. They’d known. Everyone had known. And then the bottom had fallen out of their worlds. Ellie has a secret she has never shared with a single person. Noah has lived with the pain, hurt, and frustration of being dumped for unknown reasons. He never should have let her go, and that realization slams into him with a powerful punch as the two get reacquainted.

While Ellie struggles with admitting her deep feelings for Noah have never subsided, Noah fights his own internal battle. She insists she can’t and won’t ever reveal the nature of their breakup. Can Noah convince her to let him back into her life anyway? And more importantly, can he let their past go, bury it, and live a fulfilling life with the woman he never forgot, knowing he will never have all the answers?

review-fall-cornucopia

I am really loving this new multi-author series as they take on this SEAL Team with their go to drinks as their handles. I have to go out of order for a moment for this release day, but I will be reviewing them all.

In this one best friends pull off a really dirty trick. Noah and Ellie run into each other at the bar where they were expecting to meet up with their best friends. Fourteen years have passed since Ellie broke up with Noah and while seeing him opens wounds best left hidden, they both figured they could deal. That is until they realize they would be sharing the cabin.

She glanced around. “This is my room,” she repeated as if echoing her words would make them more real.

“Apparently it’s my room too.” Yes, he was going to throw Layton overboard. Karla too. If he found them fast enough, maybe they could swim to shore without drowning. What were they thinking?

“We can’t share a room,” she stated.

“Obviously,” he agreed completely. Not a chance in hell. Perhaps he could take a few minutes to be nice to a girl he’d once dated in high school upon running into her for the first time in fourteen years, but this was asking too much. She fucking broke up with him. She literally broke his heart, though he’d never admit that out loud. He’d been a dude, for Christ’s sake. He still was a dude.

She licked her lips. “We need to find our stupid friends.”

“Agreed. I haven’t had any luck. They’re both ignoring my calls and texts. I don’t even know what room they’re in. I assumed I was sharing this one with Layton.” He pointed at the bed. “Though I was shocked to find only one bed.” He shuddered. The idea of sleeping in that bed with Ellie was almost as distasteful as doing so with his friend.

She reached down, picked up her bag, set it on the bed, and began to dig around in it. “I haven’t checked my phone for a while. I was late. Almost missed the final boarding. In my rush, I hurried straight for the bar where Karla told me to meet her.”

He couldn’t hold back his sarcasm when he said, “Imagine that. Layton also told me to meet him at the bar.”

She found her phone, ignoring him, and touched the screen. “Dammit.”

“What? Please tell me Karla at least left you a message.”

She held it out, screen toward him. “Not a single word since I told her I was going to make it by the skin of my teeth a few hours ago.”

“Fuck,” he proclaimed a bit louder than he intended. What he wanted to do was grab something heavy and throw it across the room. But he’d never been a violent man in his civilian life before, and he wouldn’t start now.

“Okay,” Ellie started calmly. “So, we get another room. I’ll go to the front desk and straighten this out. You keep trying to find our friends.”

She turned around, but just as she reached for the doorknob, he spoke again. “How close are you and Karla?”

“She’s my best friend. Why?” Ellie looked at him over her shoulder, her brows drawn together.

“Just wondering if you’d mind if I tossed their bodies over the side of the ship when I find them.”

She gave him a slow smile, one like the million he’d received from her when they were teenagers. Conspiring. Cute. Sexier than he remembered. “Be my guest.” And then she was gone.

Ellie had her reasons for breaking up all those years ago, and trust me when I say my brain was working overtime to figure out her secret.

Noah wants to know the why, even as they make the topic off limits. I found myself wanting to smack some sense into Ellie as they plan to enjoy the cruise and the excursions.

It’s obvious these two belong together and Noah certainly pulls out all the stops to break through her barriers and learn the truth.

Sweet, tearful, fun and romantic, I could put this book down.

He wants seclusion. She craves the spotlight. The deal they make could give them both what they need…if they don’t kill each other first. Home renovation has never been so hot!

Navy SEAL Clay “Dirtman” Hagan’s retirement plans are simple. Buy the dilapidated beachfront cottage he found listed for a song, fix it up, and live out his days in solitude. Everything is set until an anonymous bidder drives up the price of his future paradise.

TV talk show host Tasha Jones is flying high, until one word–CANCELED–sends her crashing. Now she’s looking to resurrect her career with a new home renovation show if they can get around the buyer standing in the way of the perfect property.

When the competition turns out to be none other then the obnoxious a-hole from her embarrassing drunken one-night stand, the battle for the property really heats up as the insults–and the sparks–fly. The producer notices the chemistry between them and decides the viewers will too and the concept for “Hot House” is born.

If Clay agrees to have the self-centered star and her cameras in his house for the duration of the show, he walks away as the owner in the end. If Tasha can put up with living in the bungalow with the Neanderthal control-freak during the construction, she gets a hit show and her career back. Win-win.

It shouldn’t be too hard since the director loves when they argue on camera, which is good since they agree on nothing. Well, almost nothing. They do both agree that they pretty much hate each other and neither one wants a repeat of their one night together . . . So why does it keep happening?

Hot SEAL, Dirty Martini is a STANDALONE full-length novel. It is a romantic comedy with an enemies-to-lovers theme. It contains an HEA and NO cliffhanger.

Clay ‘Dirtman’ Hagan’s retirement goal is to buy the little beachfront cottage for a song, and spend the rest of his time fixing it up, fishing and lounging on the deck.

Tasha Jones’ show is cancelled and she sort of blew up live on camera after she found out. Now she has a chance to redeem herself with a new home improvement reality show. The producers want another host and have already bid on the property, Clay’s property.

This is a favorite scene when Clay discovers the plans, there is some language but it works in this situation.

There it was in living color in the photo on the cell phone—his house.

“That’s my house.” In his shock, he said it aloud, whether he’d meant to or not.

One of the women glanced up at him, looking surprised. “You’re the seller?”

“No, I’m the other buyer you keep outbidding.” He scowled, trying not to tell them exactly what he thought of their swooping in and trying to steal his purchase.

Tasha turned to face him. “Then it’s not your house, is it?  If they bid higher, and the seller accepted their offer over yours, then it’s their house.”

Clay stood to his full height and took a step forward, closing in on Tasha, knowing full well how intimidating he could be when looming over someone smaller.

He’d backed men far larger than her into corners with his glare alone.

“Well, Miss Know-It-All, the seller hasn’t accepted their offer. So it’s nobody’s house yet.”

“I have no doubt they can outbid any amount you can come up with.” Her gaze dropped down his body, as it had the night before when she’d been sizing him up.

Today, dressed in a sweaty T-shirt featuring a martini glass and the words I like it dirty, with PT shorts and running shoes, he probably looked even worse than yesterday in her eyes.

His brows slammed down over his eyes in an angry frown. “What the fuck is that supposed to mean?”

“Nothing.” She smirked and lifted one bare shoulder, ignoring he’d leaned in even closer to glare at her.

Normally, he’d enjoy that she wore a barely-there sundress with plenty of cleavage showing. Today, his blood pressure skyrocketed skyrocketed instead. “You know nothing about me,” he spat.

“And you know nothing about me, in spite of . . . whatever happened.” Her expression turned insecure, questioning, almost fearful.

His mouth dropped open in realization. “Oh my God. You can’t remember last night, can you?”

In spite or rather because of the friction between these two, the producers pair them up. Clay will get his house, Tasha will get her show, but can these two survive the renovation.

I laughed a lot, the sneaking around to get time alone was hysterical. However the reason for some of the subterfuge was not as Clay and his buddies meet up to honor a fallen team member.

Laugh out loud funny, sexy, with some tears, all in a true to form reality show but in a book.
