Are you an avid reader looking for your next "fix"? Can't bear to be without some form of reading material in your spare time? Welcome to my world! Whether you are seeking a new book to "feed your need", or you are an author seeking an unbiased point of view on your own recent masterpiece, this is the place to be. With life as with books, you never know where the next step might take you...
So, QUICK NOTE...posts may not be on schedule or complete for a few days. We're right in the path of Hurricane Michael (like so many others), and with work demanding more of my time (and off time), plus house preps and who knows what going to happen in the next 24-48 hours, reading and blogging (as much as I adore it) had to take a back burner. My apologies to any tours or promised review dates...I'll get them back on track ASAP. Hopefully, I"ll be able to update this message with a "hey, it's all good" and continue on with no issues, but in the mean time, stay safe, and happy reading!

Dare Me Once
Angel Fire Falls, Book 1
by
Shelly Alexander

Love is a risk worth taking in this sizzling romance about secrets and second chances… Scarlett Devereaux’s life on the Gulf Coast went from riches to rags so scandalously fast that she barely had time to kiss her Jimmy Choos goodbye. Now, with a new alias (Lily Barns), a new budget (tighter than a pair of Spanx), and a new job on the vacation island of Angel Fire Falls, she’s daring to reinvent herself. Single dad Trace Remington is devoted first and foremost to raising his young son, who has Asperger’s. With flying his floatplane and salvaging his family’s island resort too, he has time for little else. His brothers think he needs a break from his all-work-no-play lifestyle, so they goad him into action. In response to their dare, Trace asks a sexy tourist for her number, only to discover afterward that she’s the resort’s brilliant new hospitality manager. The sparks of flirtation soon ignite into a flame too hot to ignore. But Lily and Trace both have pasts that threaten to tear them apart. Now, they’ll need to admit their secrets to each other…or risk ending their relationship before it really begins.

Seriously, I ADORED this one!
Picture it.  A strong willed woman tricycling (because two wheels just won't do!) like a road demon dragging two suitcases behind her and carrying a collection of quackers in her basket... 😂...sound hilarious?  Well, okay, so it is, but it gets so much better, and so much worse.  From the discovery of who "the Voice" from the airport was (after some WAY descriptive sexting 🔥!) to the realization that our leading lady's attempt at hiding out, I mean starting over, wasn't going to go quite as smoothly as she thought, there are bundles of love, laughs, and sexy times to be had. 

Lily is an absolute gem, feisty, determined, and with such a wonderful heart.  She was dealt the aftermath of a bad hand, but everything she did, every life she touched, she left a mark, and it was for the better.  The way she handled the aging cook, how she turned the tide for the elderly gent, her interactions with Trace's young man (such patience and care!), the temporary home she gave to the ducklings that followed her home (so to speak), and even how she handles things when they turn sour (totally saw the finger painting scene play out from a mile away!), all speak to a woman of substance, a woman rising above the crap-shoot life delivered determination, gumption, and a heck of a sense of humor.  Trace was a total alpha, but in the best ways possible.  He's handsome, hardworking, dedicated to his son, always there for his family, and willing to go the extra mile for those he cares for.  He came back to the family business burnt by love, sealing that part of his heart off evermore, or at least until a particular Cajun-tinged redhead blew into town...or excuse me, biked with all her might into town.  (I'm sorry, but that's a scene I won't be forgetting soon...)  He never saw her coming, and yet his heart was ready for her all the same...even if it took a bit to kickstart it again.

In the end, did I mention I LOVED IT?  Yeah, because I did, for as much the story as the endearing characters that inhabit the pages.  My only qualm with the whole thing was how quick forgiveness was given after a particular betrayal of sorts...personally, I would have held out, or at least made them work for it, but I suppose love IS blind, and really, they were made for each other.  What's that?  Which two am I talking about?  Oh, you'll see, but you'll have to crack the spine on this dynamite read yourself....I DARE YOU 😉...
