Hotshot San Diego sports agent Shaw Matthews and his sexy professional adversary Cassidy Whalen have gone head-to-head in the boardroom—and the bedroom. Now Shaw has scored a big promotion—but only because Cassidy turned it down and ran off. There are many things he wants when it comes to Cassidy—just not her pity. So Shaw rushes to a small town in Maine to retrieve his dignity—and maybe the woman he’s hungry to claim once more.

Cassidy has pushed herself to the max to realize her career dreams—until a family crisis brings her home. But Shaw isn’t letting Cassidy go that easily. Neither is gorgeous heartthrob Casey Michaels, the childhood sweetheart she left behind—and who now wants to win her back. As the rivalry between the two alpha males intensifies, and Shaw’s seductive moves reach a whole new level of heat, Cassidy has to make a choice. And this time, it’s for the highest stakes of all.

Winter Blog Review

This book was a gift from the publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review.

When last we saw Cassidy she had run away to handle a family emergency. Baffled Shaw needs to know why she left and handed him the contract she worked so hard for. This is how he finds himself on a Maine road in the middle of nowhere yelling at Siri.

I really love the way this story develops. Cassidy’s first love and best friend Casey is very much in the picture in her hometown. He is helping an author (Mia) with research for a romance novel that involves lobstermen.

Shaw first makes friends with Abby Casey’s mom who “adopts” him.  Casey acts the typical jealous boyfriend, but he really isn’t Cassidy’s, not anymore.

The time Casey spends with Mia seems more than just book research. While Cassidy feels kind of betrayed by that, she also knows she has to re-evaluate her feelings toward him and Shaw. A complex relationships at best.

A hurricane is the catalyst in this story for everyone. The emotions every bit as turbulent as the storm.The aftermath, a true showing of small town life.

I did a lot of laughing, a bit of crying and had to hydrate a lot. The sex was as always sizzling hot.

I can’t wait for the next book in this series to see where life leads these richly diverse characters.

Winter Blog Blurb

David Cruz is good at two things: war and training dogs. The ex-soldier’s toughest case is Atlas, a Belgian Malinois whose handler died in combat. Nobody at Hope’s Crossing kennel can break through the animal’s grief. That is, until dog whisperer Evelyn Jones walks into the facility . . . and into Atlas’s heart. David hates to admit that the curvy blonde’s mesmerizing effect isn’t limited to canines. But when Lyn’s work with Atlas puts her in danger, David will do anything to protect her.

Lyn realizes that David’s own battle scars make him uniquely qualified for his job as a trainer. Tough as nails yet gentle when it counts, he’s gotten closer to Atlas than anyone else-and he’s willing to put his hard-wired suspicion aside to let her do the same. But someone desperate enough to kill doesn’t want Lyn working with Atlas. Now only teamwork, trust, and courage can save two troubled hearts and the dog who loves them both . . .

Winter Blog Review

This book was a gift from the publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review.

This book has everything you could want in a military romance. You have your hot ex-military trainers, a determined female “dog-whisperer”, and a military dog named Atlas.  Atlas, is really the star of this book and I loved every single second.

Atlas’ handler Callhoun died under suspicious circumstances that was labeled accidental friendly fire. As a result Atlas has PTSD and severe depression. Now before you start on me, dogs can and do feel emotions as deeply as we humans do and its just as hard if not harder to break through to them.

Atlas is grieving, he is only responding to commands by rote. He really doesn’t want to do anything. Not eat, not play, nothing. My heart breaks for him, he has lost so much more than just a handler he lost his partner, his friend, his family.

Sent to Hope’s Crossing kennel to his original trainer David Cruz for rehabilitation, Atlas is also assigned a civilian trainer by the Pentagon, Evelyn (Lyn)Jones.

Things start going awry right from the start. A minor security breach at the kennel causes David to confront Lyn at her hotel. Only he doesn’t get to confront her, but stop an attack on her.

Thus begins a relationship that David isn’t sure he wants, but he sure wants a taste. One of my favorite scenes is after an attack and he is tending to a scrape on Lyn’s wrist with Atlas watching the whole interaction.

He leaned toward her, focused on her plump lip caught under her teeth.

  “What else do you like?”

  She opened her mouth to answer but he didn’t plan to let her get a word out. Maybe later. He bent his head to capture her lips.

  And seventy-five pounds of fur jumped up on his side.

  “The hell?”

  Lyn gasped. “Atlas!”

  “Af.” Mindful of the dog’s injury, Cruz gave Atlas a gentle shove.

  The dog dropped back to all fours, his tongue lolling. Looking from him to Lyn and back again, Atlas lay back down on his belly.

  Jealous. Damn dog was jealous.

There is lots of action, fun and some sizzling sex sprinkled throughout the suspense.  A thoroughly enjoyable page turner.

Release Day Tour for Becky McGraw’s Hell Bent – Deep Six Security 3


 

1cf2a-addtogoodreads

Winter Blog Blurb

 

When you leave home to find yourself, sometimes the best place to look first is there…

Former Delta Force Operator turned CIA Ghost Ops Operative Cade Winters has been dodging his dysfunctional family for years. He isn’t supposed to have a family, it’s too dangerous, but Cade can’t let go of the only person he gives a shit about, his sister Veronica. When he makes his yearly call to her and finds out she’s receiving death threats from a homegrown terrorist group, Cade knows he has no choice but to go back to Texas to make sure she’s safe.

Fresh out of a six-year hitch in the Army, Cee Cee Logan thinks she’s finally earned her brother David’s respect when he finally offers her a job with his security firm. She quickly sees that isn’t the case when the job she’s hired for turns out to be that of the team secretary, a nice safe, desk job like he told her to get when she graduated college. Cecelia is frustrated, but takes the position because she is determined to prove to her chauvinistic and overprotective sibling once and for all she’s capable of so much more.

By the end of the first week, Cee Cee wishes she’d have just re-enlisted. Her body is stiff from sitting, her fingers sore and her mind numb, but what really makes her want to run back to Afghanistan where she would at least be respected by her colleagues is the company’s other new hire. Cade Winters, her ex-lover, is back in town and the hardhearted, hard-bodied operator is a man she definitely doesn’t know anymore.

 When a trafficked woman’s repatriation clinic is bombed, and Cade’s sister Veronica, a judge, is in grave danger, Cecelia is presented with her opportunity to prove herself as an agent. But the question was, did she want it? Could she trust her partner to have her back when he seemed to be on a mission of his own to make her look bad every chance he got?

Winter Blog Review

 

Once again Becky McGraw has taken a topic that is very hard to think about, and turned it into a page turning novel of strength and courage.

At first glance one might want to blame Cee Cee for the way she is being treated at Deep Six Security. However as this tale unfurls I found she is not the only one with childish notions. Cade, Dave and the rest of the crew all need to realize she is a grown-up, with military training.

With threats against his sister Veronica and the repatriation shelter she runs that houses women rescued from a trafficking ring; Cade has no choice but to protect her. Things get more complicated when they realize that not only are the threats coming from a homegrown terrorist group, but also the cartel wanting their property back.

In the middle of all that, Cee Cee and Cade have to deal with their own attraction. This relationship once in the past needs major evaluation now. One thing is for sure, the sex is spectacular, but there needs to be more for both of them.

The action doesn’t stop in this one, bombings, kidnapping, paternity and more. Be it the investigations, or the bedroom, you won’t be able to put this book down until the last page is done.

Winter Blog excerpt

 

18+ Excerpt from HELL BENT: Deep Six Security Book 3 (c) Becky McGraw, January 2016

“If you’d have talked to me before you lef—“ he started, but her sharp bark of laughter cut him off and he shot her a hot glare.

“I did come to talk to you but figured you weren’t much into talking or listening to anything I had to say with that brunette’s lips wrapped around your dick,” Cee Cee snarled, a brow lifted over her angry, hurt eyes.

A shock of electricity shot through his body to boil his blood which crept up to the base of his throat as memories of that night, the last time he’d seen her, flashed through his mind. He cringed, and his hands tightened on the steering wheel.

That night he’d been as cruel as he could be to her because he wanted to hurt her as much as she’d hurt him. Cade wanted to show her she didn’t mean an iota more to him than she’d proven he meant to her by leaving him dangling on a limb without an explanation or excuse for two fucking weeks. That she showed up on the night before the morning he knew she was leaving for boot camp, the absolute worst night of his life, made things worse. He couldn’t be held responsible for his actions or reactions that night.

“You broke into my apartment, and I was drunk,” he said defensively. And in so much fucking pain, neither the alcohol nor the hot, nameless woman sucking my dick could make it better.

“I didn’t break in, I had a key, remember? And thank God you were drunk enough to finally tell me how you really felt about me. You saved me a lot of future complications.” Her harsh laugh rang hollowly inside his skull. “It was a hard and painful lesson, but totally worth it. I learned not to trust a man with anything more than my body, or expect anything from him in return for a good fuck. Because I went in with that attitude, I’ve had plenty of opportunities to learn you were right—I am a damned good fuck—and the act is a lot more fun when satisfaction is all you expect in return. Sure makes things less messy in the morning, doesn’t it?”

Cade didn’t know what to say as his eyes flew to hers. The vulgarity falling from her soft lips made him want to wash her mouth out with soap for some reason. Blood crept up his face to set his scalp on fire, as the hard little smile that curved the corner her mouth, the knowing look in her eyes caused a tight band of regret to constrict his chest.

He had done this to her, turned her into this kind of woman. His hasty, drunken, and yes immature, words meant to hurt her had done so much more. They turned a soft-hearted girl into a one-night-stand kind of woman like the brunette.

Were you really naïve enough to believe I wanted more than a fuck, Brat? You were a good fuck to me, Cecelia, nothing more. Wise up about men—we’re only looking for one thing and you’re keeping me from getting that right now. Go away, little girl, I’m busy.

Pressure built in his skull and his breaths came hard and fast as he studied her, tried to find that girl he used to know somewhere in her eyes but failed. Cecelia’s chin lifted a notch as her arms tightened around her middle, before she leaned back against the seat and looked out the side window.

“You’re better than that, Brat.” God, so much better, and guilt for his hand in turning her into what she’d become closed off his throat, so his words were choked. “You may have gotten confidence in the military, but you sure lost any delicacy you may have possessed before, and that’s a damned shame.”

“No, I’m not delicate in the least anymore. You toughened me right up.” She looked at him with a lifted brow and a smirk curving one corner of her mouth. “I’ve become a woman not to be messed with and I thank you for starting that transformation, Cade.”

About LOVE IN THE LIGHT (Hearts in Darkness Duet #2):

Two hearts in the darkness…

Makenna James and Caden Grayson have been inseparable since the day they were trapped in a pitch-black elevator and found acceptance and love in the arms of a stranger. Makenna hopes that night put them on the path to forever—which can’t happen until she introduces her tattooed, pierced, and scarred boyfriend to her father and three over-protective brothers.

Must fight for love in the light…

Haunted by a childhood tragedy and the loss of his family, Caden never thought he’d find the love he shares with Makenna. But the deeper he falls, the more he fears the devastation sure to come if he ever lost her, too. When meeting her family doesn’t go smoothly, Caden questions whether Makenna deserves someone better, stronger, and just more…normal. Maybe they’re too different—and he’s far too damaged—after all…

Winter Blog excerpt

Makenna unbuttoned her jeans, pushed them down, and took them off altogether, leaving her standing there in an oversized, faded red and blue Penn sweatshirt that was just long enough to cover her panties. “You should get undressed, too,” she said, coming to Caden and starting on the buttons of his shirt. Press and release, press and release. Until she was pulling his shirt from his dress pants and exposing his skin.

She gave a little moan and kissed the center of his chest. “Just like unwrapping a present.” She trailed a line of kisses and licks from one nipple to the other.

“Fuck, Makenna,” he whispered. “What are you doing?”

“Tasting you,” she said.

The words were like a blowtorch to his blood. He was hard in an instant. “We can’t,” he said, though his hands went to the back of her head, encouraging her, guiding her as she continued to kiss and tease and drive him wild with her mouth.

“We can if we’re quiet.” Slowly, she dropped to her knees and bared him to mid-thigh. She took his cock in hand and gripped him firmly, tearing a soft grunt from his throat. “I’ve been wanting you all day,” she whispered, her lips teasing his head with soft kisses. “Wanting to touch you and kiss you and hold you. I can’t hold back anymore.” She licked him from root to tip. Once, twice, three times. And then she sucked him into her mouth.

It felt so fucking good that Caden’s hands flew to her hair, digging in, grabbing hold. She moaned at the contact and pushed herself deeper, burying his cock in the back of her throat. The intensity of it nearly took his knees out from underneath of him.

Makenna pulled off his length. “Lay down on the floor.”

He was too far gone to debate the wisdom of having sex in her father’s house. He needed this. He needed her. He needed the connection and the coming together of the act. Caden locked the door, took the rest of his clothes off, and spread himself out on the beige carpet.

She undressed, too, all that beautiful red hair spilling around the bare porcelain of her shoulders and making him think of peaches and cream. And, fuck, he was starving.

Caden grasped his length. “Take me back in your mouth.”

He didn’t have to ask twice. Makenna settled herself between his legs and wrapped her lips around his cock. She sucked him deep and slow, than fast and shallow, her baby blues flashing up at him so fucking sexy. He needed to see her eyes, so he fisted her hair into a ponytail to keep it out of her face. He used his grip to urge her harder, faster, deeper. He needed it. God, he needed it. And she took it. She took everything he gave her and so much more.

“Fuck, Red, I’m gonna come if you don’t stop,” he whispered.

She pulled off him, her lips shiny and swollen. “I want you inside me first,” she said, already crawling up his body.

Christmas 2015 Blog Review

 Okay, you know I love my Cowboys so here’s another Christmas favorite.

I met Lacey and Cole in Cowboy’s Match (Poker Flats #2). This is the story of their first Christmas together.

Cole and Lacey are great together, her accounting skills have made the Last Chance Ranch financially solvent. Cole is a firefighter and operates his horse rescue from this ranch owned by his grandparents. Unfortunately the ranch house is full to bursting at the moment.

Angel is an abused White Arabian who is scared to death of men. Only Lacey and their female vet can get near her.

This story starts off very hot and sexy with Cole and Lacey’s Christmas Eve surprises for each other. Unfortunately that initial bliss turns a bit cold when the subject of Christmas Day at his parents comes up.

Cole’s mother had kept them apart for eight years and Lacey isn’t ready to forgive that. Lacey just wants it to be the two of them this year. Nothing like family drama at Christmas.

In the midst of all this, Angel’s abusive owner shows up and Christmas takes an entirely different turn.

Love, guilt, anxiety and more factor into this read and even Karma shows up.

Christmas 2015 Blog Review

I bought this during the summer but waited until now to read it.  I love military romance and this book is no exception.

Navy Seal Jesse Richter is home for Christmas and his time is being monopolized by his family and friends. That’s about to change because he meets a beautiful waitress Charlie. He finally thinks he can let go of the past, with her.

Charlie Morgan is the adopted daughter of the town’s mayor and has a criminal history thanks to her birth father. She also has a secret one she must keep to protect the ones she loves.

Jesse doesn’t give up easy and as many SEALS seem to, falls hard and fast for Charlie. He is determined to fix things for her, if only she will open up to him.

As this story unwinds you can feel and see the toll the internal struggles are taking on both of the characters. Trust isn’t easy and love is even harder.

An emotional and sexy book, plenty of action and lots of surprises. Have some tissues handy you just might need them.

Christmas 2015 Blog Review

Let’s take a trip, this time to a ranch in Texas. I love how Becky puts us right into the feel of ranch life. As you read you can smell the hay and other things. But mostly the sweet, fresh country air.

Cole and Hope have last ditch jobs at the Mall, as Santa and his photographer elf. However her first day becomes their last when a screaming child’s antics pushes Cole beyond his limits.

Cole fires his agent, who is faithful to the client who has now blackballed Cole’s modeling career and decides to tuck tail and return home where he belongs.

Hope lost everything, her best friend, her fiancé, her inheritance and her family when her camera malfunctioned at a socialite’s wedding. This job was to pay her rent, now she’s lost that too. Then she comes up with an idea that would save her career, boost her friend Tina’s company and launch Cole’s career again if he chooses.

Cole’s father is sick, the ranch falling apart, his brother distant from his son, and Cole’s return is like a slap in the face. Hope’s idea falls to the wayside, but she offers up another way to make everything right for her, Cole and his family.

The only thing they don’t see coming is the love that sneaks up on them.

A story of family and hardship and the love that binds them whether they like it or not.

The Cowboy Way is one of my favorite series and this is the beginning.
