My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A Corner Church Christmas is book number six in the Christmas Town series. This David Chavez and Liz Martin’s story.

I am so glad that Liz got her story. David and Liz’s courtship was a sweet and heartwarming read. It was fun catching up with all my friends from the other stories in this series.

Two Man Red (Big Man Blue, #2)Two Man Red by Nicole R. Locker
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Two Man Red is book number two in the Big Man Blue by Nicole R. Locker. This is Blake Brigham’s story.

Wow! What a read! Blake is still coming terms with her divorce and her ex-husband upcoming marriage. She has been dating Chase Charleston who is a friend and farmhand for her brother. She is about ready to take a chance on this relationship then an old boyfriend, Hunter Haley, moved back to town. Will Blake choose Chase or will she choose Hunter? It’s a roller coaster ride but Blake does make choice. I loved her choice but I also felt bad for the other guy. I hope he gets his story in this series.

I enjoyed this fun and entertaining read with hot chemistry.

Release Day Blitz – The Army Ranger’s Surprise by Donna Michaels – July 9th

About the book:

Army brat Kaydee Wagner gets twitchy if she stays in one place for too long. But when her grandfather needs someone to stay with him for a bit and his home needs a lot of repairs, she steps up to the plate. 

Lucky for her, help arrives from their neighbor’s gorgeous grandson, former Army Ranger Leo Reed. 

Leo’s desperate to rise above his dark past and enjoy life again. He’s already made a lot of progress, so when the woman he can’t stop thinking about needs a handyman, he volunteers. But after a very…wet incident involving deadly dance moves and a wayward sink hose, their clothes hit the floor faster than a stack of tile. 

He doesn’t want forever—that would mean revealing his past, which he’s not ready to do. She only wants right now, because any other option would require sticking around. 

And then Kaydee discovers she’s pregnant.

Excerpt:

Kaydee,” he said again, but this time he reached out to lightly touch her shoulder.

Letting out a startled cry, she turned toward him with the sprayer still in her hand. Water immediately pelted his face and the side of his head with the force of a mini power washer, blasting his flesh with a shock of heat that ran down his neck and chest. Luckily, it was only hot and not scalding.

“Oh my God, Leo!” She dropped the sprayer, then shut off the water with one hand and yanked her earbuds out with the other. “Are you okay?

“Yeah. I needed a good soaking.” He slicked back his wet hair and grinned. “No harm done.”

But apparently, she chose not to listen, because she grabbed a nearby dish towel and started to mop the wetness from his face and chest. “I’m so sorry. I didn’t hear you come in.”

“I know.”

She stilled, and her gaze slowly rose to meet his. “Oh, crap. Exactly how long were you in here?”

Loving the flush of color that swept up into her cheeks, he decided to tease her a little more. “Long enough to know you’d be dangerous on the dance floor.”

“Yeah, to others.” Her blush increased. “Oh God, I can’t believe you saw that.”

Before he could reply, she dropped her forehead on his chest, and her whole body shook as she laughed.

The unexpected move and feel of her soft curves brushing his body removed all traces of teasing from his mind. He always wondered how she’d feel in his arms, and now he knew, even if—technically—he didn’t have his arms around her. Yet. Because he could. It’d be so easy. So damn easy. All he had to do was put his hands on her back.

But that would be playing with fire, and he didn’t want her to get burned.

“I can’t believe I got you soaking wet.” She drew back and started mopping his shirt with the towel again. “I’m so sorry.”

Thankful for the reprieve, he went back to teasing. “No harm done. I won’t melt.”

She snickered and continued to dry him off, but her nearness and press of her fingers weren’t doing his libido any good, so he placed his hand over hers to stop her movements.

Big mistake.

Before, at least a wet shirt had separated their skin. Not now. His palm covered her hand, and the feel of her soft, warm skin kicked his pulse into gear.

Once again, their gazes met, but this time mortification and teasing were no longer present, just a raw, untamed attraction. It posed a danger big enough to rival her lethal dance moves.

Her gaze dropped to his mouth, and Leo’s heart rocked in his chest. A sensation he hadn’t felt in years. Leave it to Kaydeeto induce the movement. It was strange. He knew he should back away, but he didn’t. Couldn’t. It felt as if his whole body was coming alive, and until that moment, he hadn’t realized how truly out of touch with life he’d been the past few years. Perhaps always.

A Dance For TwoA Dance For Two by Colette Davison
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A Dance For Two by Colette Davison. This is Adam and Luc’s story.

Luc and Adam are not brothers by blood but were raised together from an early age. Luc started having romantic feelings for Adam so he distanced himself from Adam which caused a rift between them. The story tells the story of how they work this rift and come to terms with their feelings for each when Luc is home helping the family save their dance studio.

I have mixed emotions about this read. In the first part of the book I couldn’t feel the emotions of of the characters or a connection to them. The last part of the book showed more emotions and connection to the characters so I changed my rating from three stars to 4 stars.

FYI, contains mature content. This is a M/M gay romance. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

When Luc is invited back home to help get his parents’ failing dance school back on track, Adam isn’t sure he can cope with having his stepbrother back in his life. Especially when he discovers Luc’s decade old secret.

Confronted by Adam once more, Luc’s past feelings re-awaken. But will revealing his true feelings to Adam heal the rift between them, or drive them even further apart?
