EMERGENCY DELIVERY

EMERGENCY DELIVERY                    SAMANTHE BECK

Madison Foley is determined to stand on her own two feet, no matter how wobbly her circumstances. Fate, however, keeps throwing her off balance, and then sending heroically hot paramedic Hunter Knox to save her.

She’s put men on the back burner until she gets her life on track.

But Hunter’s got other plans. 

Decisions. Decisions.

**Can be read as a stand alone**

MY REIVEW:
     Hunter Knox, 27, has something to prove to himself as well as his family.  You see at 18 he made a rash decision that cost him more than an education.  Thanks to his sister she gave him a place to focus his energy until he could reach his goal for himself.
    Some thought Hunter had a god complex in which he felt a need to be a savior or rescuer.  Yet, he didn’t see it that way he just liked to help people in need.  Coming from a family of doctors it was just a natural calling.  So, until he could make it happen his sister suggested EMT which he had been doing for seven years now.  All that time he had been getting a medical degree.  His next step medical school. Now he needed to clear out any distractions.
     So, on New Year’s Eve when he and Beau Montgomery were called out to a roadside delivery of, 22, year old. Madison Foley, he was so surprised he felt such an overwhelming connection to her and her newborn.  He helped deliver her right there and she named her Joy.  Yet, he did feel such and overwhelming connection for sure.  Madison was one of the most beautiful women he had ever met and one in so much need of help and in so much fear.  You see she delivered 3 weeks early and the baby daddy was out of the picture.  No family, no friends, and no one to help.

     When he got her set up at the hospital she looked like a deer in a headlight and asked him to stay.  He was still on shift so that was out of the question.  By the time he came back to check on her the next day she had been released.  He felt really bad but there was nothing he could do.  But a month later Madison passed out at a drugstore from being extremely tired and dehydrated.  Hunter heard about it from Beau that one of the other EMT’s had taken the call.  After his shift he went to find her.  Then both their emotional roller coasters started.  I give this 5 stars.  Provided by netgalley.com.  Follow us at: www.1rad-readerreviews.com. 

TEXAS ROSE FOREVER

TEXAS ROSE FOREVER               KATIE GRAYKOWSKI

Everything’s bigger in Texas, and that goes double at the Texas Rose Ranch, home to the Rose family through five generations of toil, sweat, and scandal. From the moment CanDee McCain is hired to write a history of the Roses’ empire, she’s bowled over by tall, sexy Cinco Rose. True, the man initially mistakes her for a stripper, but he certainly puts the man in manly. For the first time since her cheating ex left, stealing her novel-in-progress in the process, CanDee is ready to have a little fun.

No woman has ever made Cinco feel both so at ease and so turned on. Since his divorce, he’s preferred a saddle and solitude to risking his heart again. Yet something draws him to the fast-talking, leggy redhead. CanDee’s not just sweet; she’s smart and brave too. But her research is uncovering long-buried secrets that could jeopardize everything the Roses prize most—and destroy a love that’s just begun to bloom.
 

MY REVIEW:
     This book was stuck too my hands once I picked it up.  It was by far one of the best comedy romances I have read in a long time.  I laughed so hard I was crying and trying to catch my breath at the same time.  Telling my hubby then just having to read it to him had us both laughing and crying out loud.  This is a book you don’t want to miss.
     There are some touching moments as well and some very serious moments that this author tackles with grace.  Yet, she does not shy away from the uncomfortable subject at all.  This family drama is a homerun for sure.  Feeding my love of romance and family dramas for sure.
     CanDee McCain an author by night a genealogist by day for families who hire her to come and trace their family’s lineage.
CanDee was not your average woman she was 6 feet tall in stocking feet.  When she wore the sexy as hell shoes she loved to wear she was 6 feet 5 inches tall easy.  She had long flaming red hair and golden brown eyes.  Her legs went on forever but best of all now that her ex was out of her life her great sense of humor was back.
     CanDee has been asked by Lucy Rose to research and write their family history.  She would live at Texas Rose Ranch for the next 6 weeks.  She really needed the money too.  Her ex had left her with more bills than when she met him and he had stolen her last first draft for her mystery novel.  Then he published it under his own name.  Phillip, her ex, was below a bottom feeder.
     As she waited for Dr. Lucy Rose at the family museum on property.  She is met with by who she believed is a ranch hand.  Things are going well for a while with the chit chat.  Then it takes a terribly wrong turn when the man whom she is talking thinks she is a stripper.  She later finds out it is Cinco Rose (Lucy’s oldest son.)  Why does he think this well every year on his birthday his brothers get him a stripper out of the ordinary to surprise them and well he thought this year they were going for the librarian look?  Before things could get to far out of hand Lucy walks in.  CanDee takes it all in good fun teasing Cinco.
Making him all the more interested in her.  Which surprises even his mother.
     See how a relationship forms from this crazy encounter between Cinco and CanDee.  I loved this couple and Lefty.  I give this 5++++ stars.  Provided by netgalley.com.  Follow us at:

MY REVIEW:
See past reviews for all the other books in this package...

The Billionaire Cowboy:
     I enjoyed this story of this strong sassy Vet, Lara Montgomery, who was not going to allow this wealthy cowboy rancher, Ryder Blackwell, to get what he wanted mainly her.  At least not without a fight.  The issue was that being a small town nothing was a secret especially his sexcapades.    
     The story has it that he only did one night stands but that he knew how to pleasure a woman beyond measure.  They also told that when it came to his own enjoyment well…
     So, Lara didn’t want to be another notch on his belt.  Every time he asked her out she turned him down.  He was jonesing bad for her.  She was all he could think about.  Most women he ran from because they were always chasing him for his money.  But not Lara she seemed to careless about him or his money for that matter.  She ran from him.  When he steals something out from under her she is fighting mad.  See how things play out.  I give this story 4 stars.

The Billionaire Sheriff:
     I have to say for me out of all the four of the books in this series this was the one that was the least interesting for me.  It started out okay with Naomi Davis the owner of the local bar/BBQ joint.  In the small town of Sanger, Texas.  She was new to town six months.  She is originally from Dallas.
     The local sheriff is also from Dallas but they have never met since they both came from the opposite sides of the street. 
They totally ran in different circles.  He’s always been looked at as the good guy/nice guy.  So, when you add him being quiet and shy well he is really not a chick magnet.
     So when Naomi opens her BBQ joint he had to try it since it is one of his favorite foods ever.  It was the grey eyed, chestnut hair, edgy and sexy woman who owned the place that kept him coming back.  But he knew she had a quiet and dark side.  With secrets hid behind her smoky eyes.  It didn’t stop him though from coming in every day.  In fact, they had become pretty good friends.  Since he could get up the nerve to ask her out.  See if he can finally work it into the conversation or if months will go by.  I give this 3 stars.  Provided by netgalley.com.  Follow us at:


I had already read all the other stories in this package deal that you will be getting in this one book.  So, this is a great deal over all.  When you look at the books and the stars I gave the books already read and these two and average them out the overall stars would be… 4 stars 

UNLUCKY IN LOVE

UNLUCKY IN LOVE                  JILL SANDERS

Kristen Collins is cursed. It’s the only explanation for this recent run of catastrophes. She’s lost her brand-new car and a winning lottery ticket, and her ex-boyfriend just drove off with all her possessions. She’s even lost the empty office that’s been her lunchtime sanctuary. Plus, the new hire who’s taken it over is precisely the kind of impending heartache she knows to avoid, from his intense gaze to that irresistible crooked smile.

Developer Aiden Scott plans to stay at the Denver architecture firm just long enough to prime it for takeover. A job like his can’t get personal. Yet from the moment he collides with Kristen, he’s smitten. He wants to save the stunning interior designer from every crazy scenario she winds up in. But who’s going to save him when his business agenda shatters Kristen’s trust?

Turns out, love’s a lot like luck. You don’t know just how good you have it until you stand to lose it all.

MY REVIEW:
     Kristen Collins life was upside down if you looked at it through her eyes.  It all started if you listen to her when she was dating a guy who skipped his sister’s birthday party to take her out.  The sister tracked them down and was so mad and jealous he chose her over his sister’s birthday party she cursed her.  Since his sister was a practicing witch and member of Wicca she believed it may be possible.
     Kristen never thought she believed in that type of stuff but when her luck had taken a turn for the worse, well?  She has started to think otherwise.  One or two things okay, but man she can’t count on one hand anymore.  She was starting to think she was cursed. 
     Let’s see, her ex stole every single thing out of her apartment, her most cherished empty office space at work to eat her lunch so no one would disturb her was taken over by a sexy man.  No, this week not looking much better.  Now she is told said man, Aiden Scott, will be working closely with everyone to get a handle on things he’s new.  Yet, she has no clue as to what he does for the company.  Which is odd since the two owners that she calls by their first names never mentioned anything.  So, she is wondering what his end game is.
     Aiden finds himself instantly attracted to her.  Which he finds a total odd experience since she is not his type at all.  He usually goes for the blonde bombshells.  Yet, he finds her beyond sexy.  That he can’t stop thinking about her.  He too knows the owners and has been asked to come in undercover and observe to see what he thinks about their business within.  The hopes are that he will take them over so that they both can retire.
     As for Kristen she is in a holding pattern when it comes to men and Aiden is for sure not her type.  Which by accident Aiden hears her mention to one of her co-workers on his first day at work.  Which only makes him more determined to get to know her to find out her type.  Well, when she thinks of her type she realizes the blonde hair, blue eyes, laid back, surfer dude has not been and ideal type for her.  So, making a changeup could work.  Just not now, right?
     This was a cute story the author takes Kristen through some fun experiences that Aiden has the pleasure of helping her out of.  A story of learning to trust yourself and to never pigeonhole yourself when looking for Mr. Right.  I give this 5 stars.  Provided by netgalley.com.  Follow us at:
