You were my brother in the line of duty.
My partner.
My best friend.
You were the man who had it all.
Your thoroughness and precision made you a great cop.
It’s what got you killed.
And now I live with the darkening shadows of your memory.
You weren’t here when I needed you to save me.
You weren’t here when I needed help solving the most gruesome murder this town had ever seen.
But most of all, you weren’t here to keep me from falling in love with your wife.







Review
Rating: ☆☆☆☆

This was an excellent first part to this new series.  

Wyatt is going through the motions after losing his best friend and partner, who was killed during an operation that went wrong.  There is a guilt there that he survived that keeps him from living fully.  Guilt that he lived whilst his partner died, leaving his wife a widow and his daughter without a father.  Guilt that he has always wanted more with Grace.  Guilt that they are growing closer.  Fear of being judged by those around him.

Set in a small town and against a backdrop of a murder that has rocked this small town, this is set up to be an amazing series.  This was a great set of characters in a close setting that felt like family.  I loved the fact that it was told completely from Wyatt's POV to fully get inside the head of this brooding and stoic man.

Writing Mr. Right by T.K. Leigh




Title: Writing Mr. Right
Author: T.K. Leigh
Genre: Romantic Comedy

Release Date: June 26, 2017



Blurb


My name is Molly Brinks, but most people know me as Vivienne Foxx, bestselling author of chance meetings, stolen glances, and the much-needed happily ever after. My addictions include coffee, home improvement television, and the occasional pint of ice cream. The love of my life is an eighty-pound labrador retriever named Pee Wee. At the age of twenty-nine-plus-one, I am at the top of my game…professionally. My personal life is a completely different story, one best left untold. Success has its sacrifices and I’ve been more than happy to put my search for Prince Charming on the back burner while I create fictitious tales of the naïve virgin, the broken girl with a torrid past, and the strong-willed student finding their own Mr. Right… Until one hell of a case of writer’s block and a tight deadline set by my publisher forces me outside my cozy downtown Boston apartment in search of inspiration.

Armed with an account on every dating website out there, I devise a plan. Meet some nice, professional men. Go on a few dates. Hope one of them has the spark I need to finish my book. Then walk away.

But plans are meant to be broken.

My name is Molly Brinks, and this is my story about Writing Mr. Right.







Review
Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆

Erotic romance writer Molly uses men as muses for inspiration for her hot and steamy scenes.  Writing a boss and secretary forbidden romance book has left her with writer's block so she tries a number of different methods to try to find a new muse, leading to many laugh out loud moments.  When her father's doctor saves her, her writing takes her in a direction that doesn't please her publisher.  It is a sweeter and poignant book, just how Noah makes her feel.

Although this is classed as a romantic comedy I didn't find it hilariously funny but that is more about my sense of humour than T.K.'s writing.  What I did feel though is that this was a breath of fresh air with a sweetness and lightness which was just what I needed.  But there was also a serious element, which is a trademark of T.K.'s writing, as Molly's father has Alzheimer's.  We get a rare and important insight into this terrible disease.  Once again this is proof as to why T.K. is one of my go to authors.  Amazing as always.

Full Count by Lynn Stevens

Title: Full Count
Series: Westland University Series
Author: Lynn Stevens
Genre: NA Sports Romance 
Release Date: June 19, 2017
Anyone who says they’re having the worst day hasn’t met me. My girlfriend cheated, I blew out my knee, and probably trashed my chance of going pro. All in one day. Then my jerk professor tells I’m almost on academic probation.


Awesome. Now I get to find a tutor. 
Enter Mallory Fine, quiet, a little intense, and my kind of gorgeous. Who also happens to hate baseball and any guy who plays it. 
Hello, curiosity. 
I tell myself this will be nothing more than a tutoring relationship. I’m a liar. I want this girl. How hard can her secrets be to unravel? It might be a challenge, but so is getting back on the ball field and I’m determined to make that happen—no matter the cost.

“Hey,” I said, drawing her attention back to me.
She tried to soften her expression, but her eyes darted back to the game. “I just wanted to apologize for earlier. One of the freshmen had a meltdown that would rival Three Mile Island.”
“Three mile what?” I asked, searching my brain and coming up empty. “Wait isn’t that an Eminem song?”

“Dr. Monroe was right, you didn’t pay attention in class today.” She shook her head as a grin lifted her cheeks.

--

Mallory: What makes you think I’m reading anything?
I chuckled quietly.

Me: Just a hunch. 
Mallory: Don’t judge me, but it’s a romance.
Me: A romance? Let me guess, a hot teacher falls for a sexy baseball player?
Mallory: It’s not a book of advice.
--
Shaking off the feeling of disappointing my father again, I took my computer out of my bag and powered up. The first email I saw was from MFine. I laughed at Mallory’s last name. She was pretty fine with that pixie face and hair a guy could get lost in. I opened it and smiled.
Dear Mr. Betts,
I hope you made it back to campus without any problems. We will meet in the library on the third floor by the microfiche. Nobody uses those except history majors and the area is always quiet. I’d like to meet on Mondays at three, Wednesdays at five, and Fridays at three. Our sessions will go no longer than an hour and a half; although I doubt we will need that entire time. Most of my tutoring sessions only last an hour, but I always schedule in extra time in case we hit a particularly difficult stretch. If these times are not going to work for you, please let me know immediately.

Sincerely,
M. Fine

I hit respond, amused by her formality. It was like talking to a character out of one of Chelsea’s silly historical romances. Not that I would know anything about that. Okay, not that I’d ever admit to reading one. Once. 
Dear Ms. Fine,
Those times are acceptable. For now. In a few weeks, I’ll start physical therapy so we may need to make adjustments depending on the doctor. Is there anything you want me to bring to the sessions?

Sincerely,
Aaron #4
I waited less than a minute for a response.
Dear Mr. #4,

Bring your books and your brain.
Leave your brain, and we may need the entire hour and a half.
Mallory
Maybe this girl wasn’t as stiff as she pretended to be.
Lynn Stevens flunked out of college writing her first novel. Yes, she still has it and no, you can't read it. Surprisingly, she graduated with honors at her third school. A former farm girl turned city slicker, Lynn lives in the Midwest where she drinks coffee she can't pronounce and sips tea when she's out of coffee. When she's out of both, just stay away.
