There's only one person she can think of that can help in a situation like this.

She hates to makes the call, but there isn't a thing she wouldn't do to make sure her friend is found.

Even setting aside her hatred for Deacon Black.

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Follow the Author

While working a case, Sean Whitman is tortured for information, drugged, and bitten against his will by a shape shifter. The fallout leaves him jobless, friendless, and dumped by his girlfriend. Needing a fresh start, he leaves town and opens a private investigation business. Learning to live life sober isn't easy, but he makes it to the two year mark.

When Detective Nikki Jackson with the Great Oaks, Virginia Police Department calls him, accusing him of breaking into his ex-girlfriend's house, Sean can't help but like the sound of her voice, despite her ridiculous accusations. He's shocked when she calls him back with an apology then asks for his help as a consultant on a case. On the phone, her sweet, slightly Southern voice captivates him. In person, she's unlike any other woman he's encountered, and nearly impossible to resist. But could the sexy detective ever want a man like him? 

After Nikki's last dating disaster, the mountain lion shifter has sworn off men. Then she meets Sean, and with every second she spends around the tall, dark-eyed man, her resolve crumbles. But for some reason, despite the undeniable attraction between them, Sean seems determined to push her away.

An investigation into missing refugees leaves Nikki with more questions than answers. Her refusal to let the matter drop leads her to the discovery of a radical political group's horrifying ploy for dominance. Traitors are embedded within the very organizations meant to keep shifters safe. As the list of people she can trust dwindles, Nikki calls on Sean to help her unravel a web of deceit.

As Nikki and Sean fight for survival, his fear of losing her could become a reality. Will he get one last chance to show her he loves her?

Pieces of Us: A Small Town No Strings Love Story (Angel Sands Book 6)Pieces of Us: A Small Town No Strings Love Story by Carrie Elks
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Can someone please show me the way to Angel Sands???
With a seaside town setting that sounds so idyllic, with it's beautiful pier and beaches to the eligible hot men just waiting there to find love, i'm so ready to pack up my stuff and move there!
Even though this is now book 6 of this series I approach each story as though it's the first because each one has given me the same exciting feeling of when you first start reading a brand new series, it always feels fresh and different and not just a continuation of a long running story, yes we still get to catch up with the other previous characters but it's easy to read each book as though it's a standalone with no connection to anything else.
Griff and Autumn's story is a heartfelt romance about two people that have been hurt so much in the past that it's made them afraid to love, but neither can they both deign or help feeling the physical chemistry that they have for each other. It's an emotional time for them both on so many levels, giving others opportunity to try and meddle in their relationship.
Carrie Elks has written another wonderful romance that can only be a credit to this already well established series and I just can't help wanting to be swept away there to live amongst it's characters in the warm California sun.

Bossy Bastard (Cocky Hero Club)Bossy Bastard by J.L. Perry
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Bossy Bastard is Ashton and Emma's story set in the Cocky Hero Club world. I myself have never read any of the original books from this series but I have read many stories by J.L. Perry. Firstly this story even though it is a contemporary romance it does cover subjects like eating disorders, attempted suicide and loss which could be a trigger warning to some readers, otherwise it's a fairly standard romance of boy meets girl, boy irritates girl, girl falls for boy until he does something stupid and then needs to redeem himself. The story does have some very funny moments that had me laughing so hard but it also had a few that had me totally in tears. I really liked the characters and the connection between them was very believable, following on with that the story had such a great plot line it made it such an easy book for me to read. Some great writing from this author and I will be sure to checkout more books from this series.
