Everyone loves Jack Holland, but Emmaline Neal needs him. Her ex-fiancé is getting married in Malibu and, obviously, she can’t go to the wedding alone. In Manningsport, New York, tall, blond and gorgeous Jack Holland is practically a cottage industry when it comes to rescuing desperate women. He knows the drill, Em figures, so he won’t get the wrong idea.
What Jack needs is an excuse to leave town. Ever since rescuing four teenagers from a car wreck, he’s been hailed as a hero and the attention is making him itchy, especially since his too-pretty ex-wife is back, angling for a reunion. He’s always liked Emmaline. She needs a weekend date? No problem.
So when they wind up in bed together, Em chalks it up to red wine and chocolate cake, just one impulsive night not to be repeated. But Jack’s pushing for more, and if she lets down her guard, either she’ll get her heart crushed again, or discover that Jack’s worth more than just dreaming about.

For Sam Ryan, life began at age fourteen. She has no memory of her parents or her childhood. In a decade of service with the State Police, Sam has exhausted the resources of the force searching for clues to her identity.

Keri Arthur knows how to weave characters and worlds together to bring to life an Urban Fantasy that will grip you from the very first page. The characters and story line are well-developed. MEMORY ZERO starts off with action from the very first page, and only gets better as you go to the end of the book. Finding out what happened to her partner gets her into deep trouble. When she gets a message to meet her partner Jack, things go from bad to worse. Somehow has been turned into a Vampire, and when she would not join him she ha to kill him. Now she is being brought up on charges of killing her partner and they want her to undergo a psych evaluation. Now she is on suspension and trying to find out what happened to Jack just got harder.
When Gabriel of the SIU tells her that the man she killed was not her partner, but a replica makes it hard to believe. Now she has people trying to kill her so she will not find out the truth of what is going on. She also has to find out what is going on with herself, for she is not totally human herself as she believed. This was a great read, keeping me on the edge of my seat. I give it 5/5 stars.
never heard of another living female werewolf, let alone one who’s given birth. But thankfully, her expertise is needed to retrieve a stolen letter allegedly written by Jack the Ripper. As a distraction, the job seems simple enough — only the letter contains a portal to Victorian London’s underworld, which Elena inadvertently triggers — unleashing a vicious killer and a pair of zombie thugs.
Now Elena must find a way to seal the portal before the unwelcome visitors get what they’re looking for — which, for some unknown reason, is Elena…
This book has so many twists and turns that you don’t know what is going to happen next. It is a wild, exciting read. Elena has found out that she is pregnant, Xavier has a request that he wants Elena to do for him. She has to steal the letter that Jack the Ripper supposedly has written. She agrees to it because it seems to be an easy task. After retrieving the letter they unknowingly open a portal that unleashes zombies on Toronto. Now they have to find out how to close the portal and send the zombies back. I loved this book and seeing something blossom between Jeremy and Jamie Vega was worth seeing. This book had so many chase scenes and twists and turns, that you did not know who was behind it all until the very end. If you have not read a Kelley Armstrong book I highly recommend that you do. Broken is a great read and I give it 5/5 stars.

I just finished this book last night, and it was fantastic. Jill Shalvis knows how to great story. The characters and the plot line are amazing. Leah and Jack have been friends ever since Leah moved into the house next to Jack. He has always been there for here through the hard times, when her Dad was always telling her she would never amount to nothing. He slowly started to fall in love with her and he didn’t know it. She has always loved him, but did not want to mess up their friendship. She wanted to prove that she could make something of herself, and that she was not always the screw up that her father kept calling her.
When she comes back to help her grandmother with her bakery while she recuperates, she ends up telling a little lie to Jack’s mother to make her feel better. Now her and Jack have to start acting like a real couple, but is it all an act or is it real. In the end they both profess their love after Leah nearly walks out on Jack once again.
I loved this story, with all the laughter and humorous situations that the characters are put in. I highly recommend this book and the others in the series. I give it 5/ 5 stars.
Today, I just started reading ALWAYS ON MY MIND BY JILL SHALVIS. This is part of her Lucky Harbor Series, featuring Jack Harper and Leah Sullivan, who are longtime friends who grew up together in Lucky Harbor. Only Jack does not know that Leah has had a thing for him ever since they were young, but now Leah tells a lie to his Mom that they are a couple so she won’t think she is the reason that Jack can’t find a lasting relationship. This makes his mom so happy that he can’t tell her it is not true, so they continue the lie. Will their friendship suffer, or will LOVE, AND COMMITMENT BLOOM OUT OF THIS LIE.
I am only 38 pages into the book and it is already getting good. So once I finish it I will give you my review and recommendations on the book. So happy reading. : )
