It happens without warning: At a folk-rock show at her son’s college, Lily becomes transfixed by the guitarist’s unassuming onstage presence and beautiful playing—and with his final note, something within her breaks loose.
After the concert, Lily returns to her comfortable life—an Upper West Side apartment, a job as a videographer, and a kind if distracted husband—but she can’t stop thinking about the music, or about the duo’s guitarist, JJ. Unable to resist the pull of either one, she rashly offers to make a film about the band in order to gain a place with them on tour. But when Lily dares to step out from behind her camera, she falls deep into JJ’s world—upsetting the tenuous balance between him and his bandmate, and filling a chasm of need she didn’t know she had.
Captivating and provocative, Play for Me captures the thrill and heartbreak of deciding to leave behind what you love to follow what you desire.

CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE REVIEW- SECOND CHANCE SUMMER BY JILL SHALVIS

second chance summer
RESCUE ME

Cedar Ridge, Colorado, is famous for crisp mountain air, clear blue skies, and pine-scented breezes. And it’s the last place Lily Danville wants to be. But she needs a job, and there’s an opening at the hottest resort in her hometown. What has her concerned is the other hot property in Cedar Ridge: Aidan Kincaid-firefighter, rescue worker, and heartbreaker. She never could resist that devastating smile . . .

The Kincaid brothers are as rough and rugged as the Rocky Mountains they call home. Aidan has always done things his own way, by his own rules. And never has he regretted anything more than letting Lily walk out of his life ten years ago. If anyone has ever been in need of rescuing, she has. What she needs more than anything are long hikes, slow dances, and sizzling kisses. But that can only happen if he can get her to give Cedar Ridge-and this bad boy-a second chance . . .

SECOND CHANCE SUMMER is another great book from Jill Shalvis. As always her characters and story come to life, pulling you in and not letting you go until you have finished the book. Lily is coming back to Cedar ridge after a fallout at her other job. Now she is needing a new start and somewhere to let the gossip to die down. She just has to keep her distance from Aidan. She has always had feelings for him, but when her little sister wanted him also,  she stepped back and let her have him. Aiden‘s feelings for Lily are still strong and he has to convince her that are meant to be together. This is such a great novel that it will have you rooting for Lily and Aiden to get together. Jill Shalvis always delivers a great read, and I am never disappointed. I give SECOND CHANCE SUMMER 5/5 STARS.

BOOK REVIEW- GONE FOR YOU BY JAYNE FROST


Book Description
Publication Date: April 28, 2015
As the guitarist for the rock band Caged, I know the rules: no relationships. No complications. Leave ‘em smiling when you go, but always go. Besides, it’s not like I’m ever in one place for more than a few days at a time. As the next hottest thing out of Austin, the band and I are riding the wave, and the music is all that matters.

Until her…

Lily Tennison has “complication” written across her beautiful face. But I can’t get involved. The timing’s all wrong. But she’s under my skin, and I can’t resist her troubled eyes and sweet smile. And I do have a little time to kill. Not much, just a few days in Dallas.

So I’ll scratch the itch and move on, like I always do.

Simple, right?

Note: You won’t need to turn up the heat—Sixth Street Bands Romances have plenty of steamy fun. This story can be read as a stand-alone but is part of the Sixth Street Bands music scene.

GONE FOR YOU is a great start to this series. The characters and story line are very well-developed. I cannot wait to read the next book in this series. Cameron is part of the band Caged, and when he meets Lily, he knows he has to have her. Lily doesn’t know what to do with Cameron, but for one weekend she will follow her heart. This is such a great book, and I recommend it to everyone. This is a sweet and funny story that you will be rooting for them to get together. I give GONE FOR YOU 5/5 STARS.

BOOK REVIEW “RIDING HIGH” BY VICKI LEWIS THOMPSON

RIDING HIGH BY VICKI LEWIS THOMPSON

Book Description

June 1, 2014

Saddle up!

There ain’t a rider that can’t be thrown. And large-animal veterinarian Regan O’Connelli was thrown hard when he discovered his fiancée with his best friend. Now he’s starting his life over at the Last Chance Ranch, run by the tightly knit Chance clan. But damned if his libido hasn’t perked up over the spirited redhead who looks a lot like trouble….

Lily King is the queen of anti-structure. Turns out, that makes running a horse sanctuary a challenge. Regan’s help is exactly what Lily needs—not to mention the seriously sexy sparks that are flying between them. Now she just has to convince this fallen cowboy to dust himself off and get back in the saddle…and into her bed!

I was given a copy of this book by Netgalley for an honest review.

RIDING HIGH is a fun, fast, sexy read. I always enjoy a Vicki Lewis Thompson novel.  Lily King is way over her head with her horse sanctuary. She has taken in more than she can handle. When Regan O’Connelli points it out she knows he is right. When she meets him and he does not take off his sun glasses, she knows that is has been hurt and he is protecting himself. She knows that she does not want to be his rebound girl. When he moves in to help her with the horses so that she can adopt them out, things start to heat up.

Regan was hurt when he found his fiancée with his best friend, but being around Lily he has done a lot of soul-searching and has come to the fact that he really never was in love with his fiancée. So now he has to convince Lily that he is over his past and he wants her in his future permanently. When his best friend shows up and wants to talk to him, it could destroy his relationship. I really loved this book and give it 4/ 5 stars.
