HER SECRET CHRISTMAS HERO (Secrets of Cherry Lake #6)

HER SECRET CHRISTMAS HERO                          MALLORY KANE

Do you believe in love at first sight?

Allie McHale is spending this brutal Christmas Eve snowstorm in a barn in Marietta, Montana when suddenly she hears a horrible crash on the freeway near her ranch. She discovers a handsome lone survivor, a prisoner in handcuffs, and despite her apprehension about harboring a criminal, she rescues him anyway.

Jacob Reeves, on his way to Seattle to testify against his organized crime family, is miraculously saved by the most beautiful woman he’s ever laid eyes on, who has every reason not to trust him, but getting through a freezing Christmas Eve forces them to work together to survive.

During the long night, their chemistry is off the charts and Jake realizes that Allie could be the love of his life. But as soon as the storm is over, he’ll be gone. Is Jake destined to break both of their hearts, or will a Christmas tragedy end in a miracle?
 

MY REVIEW:
     What a quick, fun, short story for a holiday read. This is about two people thrown together during some stressful conditions. Not only is there a winter storm moving into her area of Montana, Allie McHale is alone this Christmas except for her pregnant horse CeCe.
     You see her father just passed away so it’s just her and CeCe. Who the vet said is not due to the thirteenth of December but something was telling Allie that since the vet would be out of town to stay close. So, she got prepared for a stay in the barn.
Good thing. You see Jacob Reeves was being transported as a witness, a sheriff officer from hell, who was driving recklessly because he was in a hurry to get home. You see he was mad that he had pulled the short stick to be the one to transport. And of course, an accident occurred.
     Jake is the only one to survive. Allie is his savior. At first, she’s afraid of him since the sheriff had him handcuffed. Once, she got to know him things changed for the better.

     Boy, do they get to know each other too. This was fast fun, romance. The relationship was quick. They knew how fast things could change and how lives could be cut short. Quick and erotic. I give this: 5 stars. Provided by netgalley.com. Follow us at: www.1rad-readerreviews.com.

THE COWBOY AND THE KID (Tanner Brothers Book 4)

THE COWBOY AND THE KID                         ANNE McALLISTER

Having a father is a big responsibility.
And finding him a wife is a challenge eight-year-old Becky Jones takes seriously. Ex-rodeo cowboy Taggart Jones is adamant. No marriage. Been there. Done that.

Not even if Becky's dream candidate is her beautiful, blonde teacher, Felicity Albright, who knows about barrettes, patching up scrapes, and hates carrots as much as his daughter. Taggart’s still not interested. Much.

What's a daughter to do? Becky’s nothing if not ingenious, and she’s determined to convince a stubborn Taggart and a bemused Felicity that they really have met their match.

     It is a sure fire for sure.  That the minute you tell yourself over and over again, “I’m not going to ever…,” you end up doing just that.  Just ask poor old Taggart Jones.
     A single, thirty-two-year-old, father of an eight-year old daughter.  Who by the way he has been raising her since his ex-left them which Becky was two months old.  Then, he started taking her down the road, as they say, with him and his best friend, Noah Tanner.  The two guys were a tag team when it came to her.  Two years ago, it changed when she started first grade and school full-time.  Becky hated it.  His parents watched her.
     That December two years ago, after Nationals he had won!  It had been snowing when a semi clipped them in Noah’s vehicle.  The two men ended up in the hospital.  He changed.  Both men retired and opened Bronc and bull riding school on Taggart’s ranch.  Becky after a while saw a longing in her daddy’s eyes.  He was missing having someone for himself like Noah had.  So, she was going to help him by playing matchmaker.  But, who?  Everyone had lived there forever.
     When on her first day of school she meets a new teacher to the school and also a new resident to Elmer.  Was she ever happy.  Let the matchmaking begin.  Once it does Taggart is the unhappy one in this triangle.  Her teacher Felicity Albright is finally getting back into the land of the living after mourning her husband for the last two years.  And kind of likes Taggart but he fights her at every turn.  So, she just wants to back off but fate has other plans or is that Becky???

     This was a very cute story of fear playing a big part in our lives.  If we aren’t ready for an adventure to the unknown, we might miss out on the things that bring us back to the land of the living.  I give this: 5 stars.  Provided by netgalley.com.  Follow us at: www.1rad-readerreviews.com.
