Challenge Read : Simply Love by Catherine Anderson

Stumbling blind into a book for me can be disaster or heaven. This read was inexplicably both. I am truly one who believes redemption is something real and possible for anybody who truly is sorrowful and ready to change. Now in my life I've needed redemption more than once. I've had to give and earn forgiveness more than once.
But in my love of reading, I've tried to avoid certain elements that cause me to go back to dark times and dark feelings.
I felt those emotions very deeply while reading this heart-rending story.

Luke was not a hero. He was not even close. What he was though was a man whose life caused him to take the darkest road and give up almost all of his humanity. Cassie was a light of pure innocent devotion and sunshine in a cavern of endless darkness for Luke. When a light like that shines on a man he can't stop hungering for more. 
One lie, one choice, one deed and then a mountain of sins followed Luke around. 
When the house of cards he built fell around him, Cassie's light led him through his own man made hell to find redemption. Every moment I hated him I learned to forgive and every moment I wanted to shake him I yearned to embrace that broken boy who was taught that love was evil. By the end of this well written, emotional tale I felt like maybe I was changed a bit to.

When she looked at him , she made him feel fine and brave and noble and kind. Not a whore's bastard , but a hero. And he liked the feeling
 Maybe I can let a little redemption into my love of reading now and again to remind me to extend forgiveness and mercy in my everyday life.,204,203,200_QL70_&dpSrc=srch

The Outpost (Jamison Valley #4) by Devney Perry @DevneyPerry @InkSlingerPR @NazareaAndrews


This is the 3rd book by this author I've devoured in less than a week. That's a testament to how amazing and wonderful I found her writing. Her covers draw me in because they are not only beautiful but they seem to talk to me. You know going into the pages you're going to feel and you are going to experience everything the characters do. It's just some kind of vibe I get just looking at them. I think this gorgeous cover is my favorite so far. 
 In the Outpost , it's the story of Sabrina and Beau. These two have been thrown into a whirlwind of emotion and suspense.  Two people , strangers , thrown together with really no distractions. There's absolutely something beautiful about this scenario to me. I saw these two fall in love slowly and truly. 

Beau was every bit the rugged mountain man. Brave, loyal and absolutely pure man.

 I’d say good-bye to it all, just so I could say hello to her every morning for the rest of my life.
 Sabrina was that woman you'd like to shake a few times at the beginning, so stubborn yet deeply troubled inside. Beau knocked down every single wall she had between them and there was no way she could give him up. 

This rugged, sexy mountain man was every one of my lost hopes and forgotten dreams come true.

 Throughout this amazing read I was given a cast of characters that I really wish I could spend a day with just hanging out. They felt so real and so vibrant. Things that we face in our lives can leave a spirit broken and fearful. Mostly we want to protect our hearts. That's what Sabrina did. But there's nothing like giving up all life's modern conveniences and going off the grid. Add in a sexy mountain man who is also the best friend you could have well Sabrina really stood no chance.

I devoured this romantic and suspenseful read and I was sad when it ended. I love the epilogue in the future and felt a sentimental smile ease onto my face as I closed my kindle. I truly can't wait to see where this author takes us because I'm definitely going to he hanging on for the ride. I'd like to beg for some stories. I want Henry's story, Khloe's story and I hope she is with Paxon. But I'm now anxious about Hunter and Maisy.. I sure hope he gives her the love story she deserves. I really want a guy who's loyal from the start.
Simply put I want more.

Cherish Hard (Hard Play #1) by Nalini Singh @NaliniSingh

It's been a while since I lost myself in a Nalini Singh book. I'll need to rectify after being blown away by this gem I dove into.
Sailor was a book hero that is everything I'm looking for. He's first of all totally loyal to everyone he cares about. He's strong, capable and dependable. He's sexy like you can't even imagine.. 

Isa was sucked in by his intense magnetism and these two danced an inevitable waltz that took them to the most precious hea you'd ever want.

There were way more than one love connection going on.  There's all the family members on both sides. So many personalities and various depths of familial conflict and unwavering support. The Dragon, Jacqueline, well I'm not sure what to think. She was someone I really couldn't understand. But by the end she grew a bit and it all worked out. 
Isa was truly one amazing heroine and Sailor cherished her exactly like she deserved.
What I loved SO MUCH was that Sailor's brother Gabriel is the hero in 
Rock Hard
 See My Review HERE
and if you haven't read that book 
I really plan on moving more of this authors books up my tbr. Especially if they have loyal heroes with low drama.
Wonderful romantic and sexy read.
