The Iron Tiara ~ Beth Flynn

Anthony Bear and Christy Chapman are from two completely different worlds.

Anthony's the leader of a motorcycle gang that terrorizes Florida’s West Coast. As a child, he ran away from his family and the Cherokee Indian Reservation to enter a life of crime. As an adult, he leads a multifaceted life managing his two businesses—his legitimate landscaping venture, and his loan shark and underworld dealings. Driven by anger and betrayal, Anthony begins the hunt for Christy’s father, Van Chapman, after he runs out on a loan.

Christy’s privileged life is not as it seems. She has kept painful family secrets and hidden some of her own. She’s determined to find out the truth and expose Van, but her search delivers her right into Anthony Bear’s hands, adding kidnapping to his list of crimes.

Their worlds are as contrasting as the color of their skin. The only thing they seem to have in common is their mutual disdain for Van Chapman…and each other.

They couldn’t be more wrong.

This felt like an absolute tease to me with an awesome set up for more!!

Anthony Bear has made a name for himself by making smart moves and being ruthless. 
It was a bit unnerving reading about this total bad-ass having an obvious chip on his shoulders.  But it's crazy how one person can open your eyes to a world you never knew you needed or even wanted.

Reading about how Anthony and Christy met and how unsettled he was when he began realizing that what he was feeling and doing - contradicted the why's of it was beautiful..
I can't really go too much into Christy's role in all of this since it's basically the driving storyline.. But I can say she was strong, caring and the perfect partner for Anthony!

This wasn't an over the top gritty read in my opinion, it was nothing like Grizz and Kits story which we did get to see them again.. this wasn't about outlaws and Anthony's indiscretions..
This was a story about two damaged people who fell in love in the most unlikeliest way.. 

I wanted More.. 

While I got to know Anthony and Christy I was left with so many questions.. there were small conversations through out that were left hanging - events eluded to with no explanation or further mention.. There was Nisha and X as well as Lucy and Booker I need to know everything about them as well.
SOOOO I am very excited to see where Ms. Flynn will be taking us next!!

Until It Fades ~ K.A. Tucker

Twenty-four-year-old truck stop waitress and single mother Catherine Wright has simple goals: to give her five-year-old daughter a happy life and to never again be the talk of the town in Balsam, Pennsylvania: population two thousand outside of tourist season.

And then one foggy night, on a lonely road back from another failed attempt at a relationship, Catherine saves a man’s life. It isn’t until after the police have arrived that Catherine realizes exactly who it is she has saved: Brett Madden, hockey icon and media darling.

Catherine has already had her fifteen minutes of fame and the last thing she wants is to have her past dragged back into the spotlight, only this time on a national stage. So she hides her identity. It works.

For a time.

But when she finds the man she saved standing on her doorstep, desperate to thank her, all that changes. What begins as an immediate friendship quickly turns into something neither of them expected. Something that Catherine isn’t sure she can handle; something that Catherine is afraid to trust.

Because how long can an extraordinary man like Brett be interested in an ordinary woman like Catherine…before the spark fades?

This was an absolute delight to read..
It was a beautiful heartfelt love story that slowly unraveled as you went along for the ride.
It's about family, friends, mistakes, love, trust and believing in Happily Ever Afters

Catherine was so much more than she gave herself credit for, a single young mom doing everything she could for her 5 yr old daughter while battling with the skeletons in her closet. she's done nothing but continue to move forward while trying to stay in the shadows and not draw any more unnecessary attention from her judgmental town...

 But all it took was a split second of heroism to change her life forever!!

Brett was absolutely perfect.. there is no other way to describe him..
He was patient, understanding, caring, loving and supportive - All rapped up in the YUMMIEST package..
Even though rich and famous he was so grounded and genuinely humble there was no way Catherine was able to keep that wall up and keep him in the "friend" zone..
Even though he was battling with his own uncertainties he managed to put her feelings and well being fist..
His friendship and attentiveness to Brianna which was a bundle of laughs the only way a chatty 5 yr old could be won me over immediately.

The story tells us the why's and how's of Catherine's past, introduces us to some other amazing and not so amazing people in her life.. Shows us the sweet way Brett ingrained himself in her like and makes us feel exactly when she decided to chance it all, even though she thought it would only be "Until It Fades"!!!

A definite feel good must read Romance..
