Review: Fire in You (Wait for You #6) by J. Lynn

fire-in-you-by-j-lynnFrom the # 1 New York Times and International bestselling author, Jennifer L. Armentrout writing as J.Lynn, comes a richly moving story about heartbreak and guilt, second chances and hope. Full of familiar, fan-favorite characters and no two people more deserving of a happy ending, Fire In You will burn bright beyond the last page…

Jillian Lima’s whole world was destroyed in a span of a few hours. The same night her childhood love, Brock ‘the Beast’ Mitchell, broke her heart, her life was irrevocably altered by the hand of a stranger with a gun. It takes six years to slowly glue together the shattered pieces of her life, but Jillian is finally ready to stop existing in a past full of pain and regret. She takes a job at her father’s martial arts Academy and she’s going out on her first date since a failed relationship that was more yuck than yum. Jillian is determined to start living.

She just never expected Brock to be a part of her life again. But he’s firmly back in her life before she knows it, and not only is he older, he’s impossibly more handsome, more teasing and more everything. And when he sees Jillian, he’s no longer capable of thinking of her as the little girl who was his shadow growing up or the daughter of the man who gave him a second chance at life. He sees the woman who’d always been there for him, the one person who believed in him no matter what.

Brock knows she’s the one he should’ve made his, and what begins as a tentative friendship quickly turns to red-hot chemistry that sparks a flame that burns brighter than lust. Falling for Brock again risks more than her heart, because when the past sorrow-filled and guilt-ridden past resurfaces, and a web of lies threatens to rip them apart, the fallout could lay waste to everything they’ve fought to build together, and destroy the dreams of those they care most about.

Review:

Jillian’s home was a refuge for Brock Mitchell. A place where he was given a second chance, a place where he found family, a place where he became “Brock, the Beast Mitchell”…a top professional fighter. The day Brock met Jillian’s father changed his life forever.

Jillian was Brock’s shadow, always in the wings as the grew into adult hood. Crushing on Brock would have been an understatement, she flat out loved him.

One fate-filled night changed it all. Barely surviving a brutal and deadly attack, Brock blames himself for not being there for Jillian while Jillian life was altered forever. Driving them apart, six years is a really long time to avoid each other.

Six years later, after much conjoling from her parents, Jillian agrees to come back into the family business, the training gym that was her life before the attack. Little did she know they were thrusting her back into Brock’s path.

Smoldering chemistry explodes, when the patient but commanding Brock finally sees what he’s been missing…Jillian!

Fire In You is a riveting, heartwarming tale of friendship, love, family and healing. It was a marvelous love story but when you add in Armentrout’s way of connecting characters to her readers, you have a contemporary romance that should not be missed.

Womanizer – Katy Evans

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Evans comes a brand new contemporary romance. WOMANIZER is a full standalone, and no other books in the series need to be read.

You’ve seen the headlines: Womanizing billionaire player! Watch out! Stay away!

We were just two strangers. Facing a forbidden attraction, a chemical connection. Neither of us expected or wanted it to amount to more.
But I had never been drawn to a guy the way I was drawn to this one: my brother’s best friend, and CEO of the company where I interned.
Even knowing I should stay away, I proved to be too human, after all.
The chemistry was amazing.
The laughs were incredible.
I opened up to him in more ways than I’d opened up to anyone before.
But sex was as far as I’d go.
Just sex because he was too irresistible.
Just sex because I wouldn’t be falling for him.
Just sex because I’d leave in three months, and I’d like for my brother not to kill me, and for nobody to find out he was my wicked little secret.
He wasn’t the One.
He was just a womanizer.
But for a time, he would be mine.

Olivia Roth is a beautiful 22 yr. old woman from Texas that is about to leave home & be on her own for the first time. She’s starting her first official job, and is excited to be an independent woman. Her brother Tahoe landed her an internship at one of the biggest Fortune 500 companies in Chicago called Carma Inc. it’s one of the toughest raiding firms in the country, and the CEO is her brother’s best friend Callan Carmichael.

Callan Carmichael is a 28 yr. old hot, smart, ruthless, sexy, unattainable billionaire bachelor. He’s known for being a womanizer & a shameless player, and is the last of his friends that’s still single.

Callan & Livvy meet & sparks fly. They share an instant connection & chemistry , and just click. Livvy knows as her brother’s best friend Callan is forbidden to her, but she’s still drawn to him, & finds him absolutely irresistible. Seeing him becomes the highlight of her day.

Callan knows he should stay away from Livvy. He’s her boss & she’s his best friends little sister, but he can’t stay away. His want for her becomes unbearable & soon they are acting on their intense attraction, & seeing each other in secret.

Livvy planned to do her internship for three months & go back home to Texas. She never planned on meeting a man who made her feel wanted and beautiful. A man who gave her laughter & the best sex of her life.

The more time Livvy spends with Callan, the more she craves him & can’t resist him. Her plan for just sex turns into more & she fears she won’t get out of this without a broken heart. He shows hers tenderness others don’t see, pushes & challenges her to be her best, makes her feel alive and leaves her breathless.

This man who doesn’t do commitments or invest himself emotionally is suddenly finding himself wanting more with a woman. He loves spending time with Livvy & can’t get enough of her. He’s totally addicted to everything Livvy & can’t imagine her not being in his life.

It Ends with Us by Colleen Hoover Cover

Sometimes it is the one who loves you who hurts you the most.

Lily hasn’t always had it easy, but that’s never stopped her from working hard for the life she wants. She’s come a long way from the small town in Maine where she grew up—she graduated from college, moved to Boston, and started her own business. So when she feels a spark with a gorgeous neurosurgeon named Ryle Kincaid, everything in Lily’s life suddenly seems almost too good to be true.

Ryle is assertive, stubborn, maybe even a little arrogant. He’s also sensitive, brilliant, and has a total soft spot for Lily. And the way he looks in scrubs certainly doesn’t hurt. Lily can’t get him out of her head. But Ryle’s complete aversion to relationships is disturbing. Even as Lily finds herself becoming the exception to his “no dating” rule, she can’t help but wonder what made him that way in the first place.

As questions about her new relationship overwhelm her, so do thoughts of Atlas Corrigan—her first love and a link to the past she left behind. He was her kindred spirit, her protector. When Atlas suddenly reappears, everything Lily has built with Ryle is threatened.

With this bold and deeply personal novel, Colleen Hoover delivers a heart-wrenching story that breaks exciting new ground for her as a writer. Combining a captivating romance with a cast of all-too-human characters, It Ends With Us is an unforgettable tale of love that comes at the ultimate price
