I received this book for free from Authors in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

My Review Anchor by Nicole Blanchard

“It’s funny how you don’t realize a part of your life is missing until a beautiful woman strands and blindsides you with her perky smile and sweet perfume.”

Anchor, by Author Nicole Blanchard, is a quick and saucy read that takes us on a vacation and work adventure with Gabriel (Gabe) Rossi and Chloe McKinney as they pass from one environmental storm into a sexy storm that leads to a possible calm in their lives that they didn’t know they were missing.

“…do us both a favor and take your train wreck somewhere else.”

If Anchor were a fairytale it would be called “The Princess and the Douchebag”.  But, that’s only an initial glance of these lovable characters.  There’s a point reached in the story that makes us realize the actual fairytale would more likely be “Beauty and the Beast”, with a large side of fire and heat. 

“What’s a princess without her glass slipper.”

Within the first few pages I connected with Chloe. She was accident prone at the worst times, which I can definitely identify with. Gabriel had no time for a girl like Chloe.  He needed to tend to what seemed most important. Their short time together left me wanting more and more. The dual points of view were perfectly written for this story. It wasn’t like a retelling from one person to the next, but rather an expounding upon and telling from different personalities that added more depth to the story.  I arrived at one point in the book with a particular happening that totally took me by surprise and wanted to scream “I love you, Nicole Blanchard!!!”  It was so wonderfully written. I look forward to the next book in this series and more from this author.

“I was perfectly content to go on living my life as I had been. And then you blew into my life, literally, and changed all my plans.”

My Review Solstice Burn by Kym Grosso

Solstice Burn is the first book I have had the opportunity to read by Kym Grosso and is the first in her new, Club Altura, series.

This is a quick and hot novella that introduces us to Chase Abbott and Penelope (Penny) Travis.   Penny is a rather conservative type of gal. She takes her work seriously, and, in general, work is what she lives for and does. But, when she meets Chase, the adventurer, she find herself wanting to let go of that routine of life and be free to pursue her interest in him.  As this story progresses from introduction to finality, the heat level rises until it is combustible.

Kym Grosso did a wonderful job creating likable characters in a setting that I could visually enjoy, as they were well-described. Solstice Burn was written in third person, which is not always as enjoyable a read for me. But, the author did an amazing job of writing in such a way that I kept my interest and made me feel very comfortable in listing this as a recommended read. I look forward to reading more from this author in the future.
