First to Fight Box Set: Books 1-5 by Nicole Blanchard
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A First to Fight series is a stunning, out-of-this-world, magnificent series filled to overflowing with fascinating, dream-worthy heroes and sassy, independent heroines that will get your heart racing and keep it thrumming throughout each incredible story. You are sure to fall in love with each couple as they endure their own set of trials and tribulations as they fight for their happy ending for all they are worth. There is no doubt that you will ever find another series as beautifully raw and wondrously intense as this one from an author who knows how to draw out every emotion within you and show you the exquisiteness that can come from life’s hardest circumstances.

I have such a hard time choosing my favorite from this incredible collection of wild and wicked books. Anchor definitely takes a top spot, but Warrior just won’t leave my heart. It took me completely by surprise, and it has made a permanent home within my heart. It is a story that shows every aspect of how harsh and demanding life can be along with the possibility of what we can have if we choose to fight for it. This series will challenge everyone in a very different way, and yet they are all valid and sincere. Don’t miss the chance to get to know these extraordinary characters that will etch themselves on a part of your soul for all time.

If you are looking for a new author to try, then you must give Nicole Blanchard a try. She is an author that will shock you with her brilliance and hold you captive with her fabulous words of healing, hope, and honor. Her dazzling books are filled with honest realism, incredible heart, and unfaltering promise. I always wait anxiously for her next epic story that I know will rock my world and sear itself onto my heart.

Review: Wounded Dance

Wounded Dance
Wounded Dance by Deanna Roy
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

If I know nothing else about a Deanna Roy book, I know that she will take my heart on a tumultuous rollercoaster ride that will shred it beyond compare and remake it so beautifully in so many ways. I will feel way more than I ever thought possible and find a version of myself that I never knew I was capable of becoming. She never fails to offer me renewed hope, unwavering light, and unfettered possibility. Her stories are spectacular miracles brought to life through a beautiful spirit and a stunning heart.

Wounded Dance is a wondrous labor of pure, unadulterated love that will spark a deep appreciation of how hard and yet how so totally worth the hellish battles are when it’s all said and done. The best love comes from the hardest and the harshest circumstances that life throws at us. It shows us that is it worth anything and everything that we have to endure and hold fast against. It is worth simply everything. This story is absolutely breathtaking with its wonderful intensity and all of its delicious twist and turns that never fail to take you by surprise.

Deanne is one of the most wickedly talented and huge hearted authors that will reach into the very depths of your soul and never leave you the save ever again. She is a marvelous person and a wonderful author that will make you see the world through very different eyes which will change your life, your heart, and your world.

Blurb:

Soulmates destined to collide.

Six years after surviving a tragic loss, a photograph of a young woman turns Oliver Bishop’s world upside down. He’s on a mission, tracking her from state to state. Each stop bringing him closer to finding her. Will his search find the ghost vixen, or will the madman stalking her get to her first?

After fourteen years of running from a nightmare, Fallyn Blackwood barely escaped her stalker’s clutches in Washington. When a sexy stranger walks into Ray’s Diner, her entire world shifts on its axis. Scared and determined, she finds herself fighting his protective nature—and her desire. The problem is, she’s not looking to be saved.

He’s come too far to back down. He found her, and he won’t let go. Freedom from the past is within his grasp, and he’ll fight for her love.

Portrait of a man with naked torso and tattooes. Dark and deep shadows.

EXCERPT

By the time I’ve showered and changed, the delectable aroma of pizza permeates the room. Oliver is perched on the bed, taking up most of the space, with a piece of mouth-watering heaven in his hands. His hair is wet and he has a new change of clothes on. Where did he shower? Do I really care? He looks good enough to eat.

Just then my tummy grumbles, reminding me of another hunger. I lift the box. When I notice what he’s ordered, I freeze in my tracks.

“You don’t like chicken and jalapeño pizza? Ever since trying it in Texas, I don’t want another flavor. I’m obsessed.”

He snorts, takes a bite, and points to a corner desk.

“I ordered a salad and chicken tenders if you would rather have that.”

“It’s not that. It’s my go-to pizza of choice. Harper devours mine at least once a week.”

He stops chewing and stares quizzically my way.

“You don’t say?”

I wonder what else we have in common. Is he the yin to my yang, the Tom to my Jerry, the warmth needed to melt the ice in my heart?

Before I have time to respond, he asks, “Beer or wine?”

“Beer, of course,” I answer immediately.

“Football or baseball?”

“Football. You know I’m from the south. We love our teams.”

“Gator or Nole?”

“Florida Gator all the way, baby. Before all this happened, I planned on going to college in Gainesville.”

I shrug, push the haunting memories back, and focus on enjoying the game we are playing.

“Chocolate or vanilla?”

“Neither. Chunky Monkey.”

“Really? Okay. What about river or beach?”

“Depends. Do we fish or swim?”

“Fish.”

“Then river. Okay, stud, my turn.”

From out of nowhere, a devilish grin appears. He inclines his chin then sinks his teeth into the steaming pie.

“Sunrise or sunset?”

I chew a jalapeño and wait.

“Sunrise.”

“Ford or Chevy?”

“Ford.”

“Country or rock ’n roll?”

His forehead crinkles deep in thought before he answers.

“Nope can’t choose. Love ‘em both.”

Mouth full of yumminess, I reply, “Fair enough, Ollie. I totally agree with you. Spring or fall?”

“Well, since that’s when I kissed you, fall is my preference, baby.”

I stutter, shocked by his answer, and whisper, “Hipster or bikini?”

“Commando.”

He smirks.

“Then I won’t tell you what I’m wearing under these clothes,” I playfully banter.

Review: The Player

The Player
The Player by K. Bromberg
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book has EVERYTHING and is EVERYTHING. It has an incredible amount of heart, fabulous twists and turns, and limitless raw realism throughout every page. Few books make me feel completely and utterly vulnerable like this one did from the very beginning. There is no hiding or avoiding this story along with its heady implications and undeniable truth. What a perfect masterpiece that is infused with pure and honest love and wrapped in strong cords of hope! This story will steal your heart with no hesitation, and you will make sure that it never gives it back.

I have never met characters that have so irrevocably wrecked me in every way possible. They are brilliant in their inception, fantastic with their interactions, and extraordinary in their development. Without a doubt, this cast is life changing for a heart that is searching for something real and something challenging and something wholly original. I can’t sing the praises of this book any higher as my heart has been absolutely consumed and downright transformed by its beauty and magnificence.

K. Bromberg NEEDS to be on your top author list. This is the first book I have read by this incredible author, and I already know how tremendously captivating her writing is! I am hooked, and seriously can’t wait to read another of her marvelous books! There is not much originality in this world, but you will find that and so much more within the pages of this epic masterpiece.
