Summer My Review

Picking up a runaway bride was the last thing Shade expected to do on his way to Texas. The worst part was he knew who she was and she is way out of his league.

Vivian is a Chicago heiress, on the run from her almost husband who is shadier than she could ever imagine. Shade knew but played along at least for a while.

I don’t know which I giggled at more, her first visit to Walmart or to a Waffle House. I think the Waffle House, so here’s a favorite scene.

He chuckled and turned into a Waffle House. “This work for you?”

She rubbed her hands together. “Oh yay. I’ve always wanted to eat at one of these.”

At first, he thought she was making fun of his favorite breakfast spot, but then she hopped from the car with a, “Hurry up.”

He followed her into the small diner, her unconventional outfit of his shirt, sweat pants, and her white heels barely drawing notice at this hour and in this place. But she did need something else to wear. A little farther down the road was a Walmart. She’d probably never even been inside a Walmart.

She’d found a table overlooking the grill. “Do you mind? I want to watch.”

He slid in across from her. “Nope. What are you eating?”

“I don’t know.” There was a sparkle in her eyes he’d never noticed. She looked… well, happy, if the wide smile on her face was any indication.

“Surely you’ve eaten at Waffle House before?”

“Never.” Her voice held a tinge of excitement. “I’ve always wanted to. What’s good?”

“Hmm, waffles,” he suggested.

The responding laugh came from deep in her gut. He knew because he felt it all the way down in his.

She ordered a waffle with pecans, coffee, orange juice, bacon and hash browns with cheese. He told the waitress to bring him the same.

“There is no way you can eat all that,” he said. “You got a hollow leg?”

“You just hide and watch me. I love food like this and I never get to eat any.”

The waitress set two coffees and two juices on the table.

“Why?” he said before taking a sip of his coffee.

“Why what?”

“Why don’t you ever get food like this?”

“Oh, my parents would die. And Cook’s feelings would be hurt if she found out.” And then, as if realizing what she’d said, her gaze dropped to the table. “I mean, Mom’s feelings would be hurt if I didn’t eat what she cooked.”

She was the worst liar ever.
D’Alba, Cynthia. Hell Yeah!: Cadillac Cowboy (Kindle Worlds Novella) (Kindle Locations 390-410). Kindle Worlds. Kindle Edition.

A delightful journey from Chicago to Texas, meeting his family on the way. Some anxious moments wondering about the ex, and her parents. Topped of with sizzling sex and lots of fun.

First-term Sheriff is torn between duty and love when sexy Chief of Surgery is accused of medical malpractice and homicide.

Review Spring Blog - Copy

Sheriff Kyle Monroe  and Dr. Tess Sweeny are a couple, problem is no one knows. She has insisted on that since Kyle’s had been her patient and his twin brother Troy is Chief of Staff at the hospital. Troy doesn’t like her very much, not personally or professionally. She was hired by the board of directors as Chief of Surgery, before he was appointed.

Car accidents happen quickly and the results can be devastating for parents, in this case the news is bad for one set of parents and good for the other. In this case 2 prominent families are involved and the doctor has a not so pleasant history with one of them. Here is the scene that had me up in arms routing for the doctor.

A hand clasped down hard on her shoulder and wheeled her around. Preston Lloyd had followed her from the room and now glared at her, his jaw flexing and relaxing. “Excuse us, Sheriff. Tess and I need to have a private conversation,” he said and jerked Tess off to one side.

“I want to know why you killed my son. Did you think it would be the perfect revenge? The perfect way to get back at me? Did you? Did you? It was just a car accident. There’s no way my son could have died from it.” His voice vibrated with rage. His hands were rolled into tight fists at his side.

“That’s enough, Lloyd.” Kyle said, stepping between them.

“You bitch.” He leaned toward Tess, pointing his finger in her face. “I’ll have your license, Tess. I’ll personally see to it that you never kill another person.”

“Preston, I—” Her heart thumped painfully against her chest. Diamond Lakes was a small town with a tight medical community. Preston had enough political clout to ruin her career if he so chose.

“I said that’s enough.” Kyle pressed his hand on Lloyd’s chest to hold him away from Tess. All he was missing was the suit of armor.

She shouldn’t be relieved to have Kyle protecting her. She should be strong enough to stand up for herself. But she was so tired, so heartbroken, so fragile right now. A single word could reduce her to tears. When she laid her hand on Kyle’s back, the muscles were tense and strained.

Preston shoved Kyle’s shoulder to dislodge his restraining hand. “You stay out of this, Monroe— if you want to keep your job as sheriff. I can make your reelection campaign fizzle before it starts.” He glared at Tess over Kyle’s shoulder. “This is between me and this lying, vindictive murderer. She killed my son.”

Kyle placed his hand on Preston’s shoulder and squeezed. Preston flinched. “That’s more than enough. Dr. Sweeney isn’t to blame. I’m sorry for your loss, Preston. You need to go see to your wife.”

Preston jerked his shoulder out of Kyle’s grasp. “This isn’t over, Tess. Not by a long shot. I’ll be contacting the head of hospital, the chairman of the board, and the president of the Texas Medical Society and filing a complaint about you with each of them. I promise you, I will find a way to ruin your life like you ruined mine tonight.” He stormed away, slamming the surgery waiting room door against the wall.
Cowboy Justice 12-Pack (Kindle Location 6196-6215).Kindle Edition.

Preston starts the trouble immediately and in a media storm. Blaming the driver of the other vehicle and the doctor as well claiming drunkenness on both their parts. As the truth unwinds there are quite a few surprises for all involved.

This book shows the incredibly insane things that happen when people in a positions of power misuse it. The ability to fight and overcome is a real battle in these situations. An intense, well written satisfying read.
