leslie-north

Ahmed Al-Qasimi also known as the Playboy Sheikh seeks to live his life to the fullest. Being the youngest son of the Sultan of Sharjah comes with its special kind of hell. Tired of his brothers and father’s lectures he takes special interest in a caterer Melanie Martin. Melanie is a hardworking chef with her own catering company, she never had to depend on anyone but herself. When the sexy Sheikh Ahmed unleashes his charm she melts and realizes she doesn’t want to turn down his advances. Known for her all work no play demeanor this sexy brunette finally let’s her hair down and shows this sexy royal a side a New York he’ll never forget. Sultan Mohammed Al-Qasimi has had enough of his son’s reckless behavior bringing dishonor to their family name. He arranges a marriage for his youngest son with a woman he sees as the perfect wife to tame is irresponsible son. Ahmed is faced with a tough decision, he must choose between his duty as the Sultan’s son or true love. Can these two star-crossed lovers find true love no matter the obstacles in their way or will duty and life little surprises get in the way?

The Sheikh’s Accidental heir is the second book in the Sharjah series and it can be read as a standalone. This is a happily ever after love story with no cliffhangers. This book shows the allure and the beauty of New York City and it further delves into Arabian culture and customs. The characters were imperfect and relatable. Melanie Martin is an independent woman from a free world and it was refreshing to see her navigate a culture where women don’t have the same rights as she does in her home land. Real fears present themselves but the story shows me why I love romance so much; love really conquers all.

The only growth areas in this book was I would have loved to see more of Sharjah the place. She showed him her home (NYC) it would have been nice to see Ahmed in his own land showing her the splendor of a country with such a rich culture. I enjoyed reading this book and as a follower of the series, Sharjah became a real place for me. The Sheikh’s Accidental heir is a story about love, family and making tough decisions.

Review: Pushing her limits

Pushing Her Limits (Masters of Adrenaline, #3)Pushing Her Limits by Sparrow Beckett

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

 

Pushing her limits is a sexy twist on Cops and Robbers, where the cop fall in love with the robber after lust-filled trysts. Altas Larson is a highly intelligent computer whiz and a master car thief. He was raised to lie, cheat and steal. He’s also from a family of master thieves who steal from the rich. Their operation is a highly-sophisticated approach to car stealing. Mila Palmer is a female detective with a lot to prove, being the daughter of a disgraced officer and being a woman in an old boy’s club has her working harder than ever. When she meets Altas her perception of right and wrong shifts as she is sucked in his world of BDSM, she uncovers truths about herself while trying to stay on the right side of the law. Altas starts off as an assignment and quickly the clearly drawn lines start to blur.
Pushing her limits is an action-packed erotic romance, it is a great read.

The authors successfully craft complex characters that made me the reader question my own sense of morality. It is third book in the Masters of Adrenaline series and it can be read as a standalone. Pushing her limits gave you a sneak peek into the lives of past characters which added value and credibility to the story. The book pushed me into their world and never let me out until the story was over. This is not for the faint of heart, it is an erotic romance pushing the boundaries of what is usually acceptable in regular relationships. The setting is Las Vegas hot sun, desert, luxury cars, mansions and a fast-paced way of life.
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review from NetGalley.

I came across this book on NetGalley, and I fell in love with the story. It was a well written contemporary romance that deals with themes of moving on and forgiveness. I love that even though it had a happy ending it was real. It’s a story about real people falling in love after betrayal.

Sandra Owens: Jack of hearts

jack-of-hearts

What does it take to take down a notorious drug lord? One sexy and bad-ass undercover FBI agent and his team which consists of his brothers. There is only one problem and it is in the form of a beautiful red-head who happens to be the cousin of the man he must take down. Alex Gentry co-owns a biker bar with his brothers which also happens to be the perfect cover for all their operations. These FBI siblings tries to keep their baby brother in line after her falls for Madison Parker, the niece of a powerful and notorious drug lord.

The most important things to Madison is the business that she and her best friend Lauren opens and her mother. Madison’s priorities start to shift after she meets a mysterious, sexy dark-haired acquaintance of her cousin. All she wants is to be as far as possible from her mother’s family but they find a way of pulling her back.

Jack of hearts is a fast-paced, jaw dropping contemporary romance where Agent Alex Gentry falls for the niece of the man he was ordered to take down. Sandra Owens displays mastery in creating characters in this novel. Each character was complex and through reading you can feel the connect of each relationship, when I read romance I love a realistic progression of romance. Each scene served to strengthen the credibility of each character and the depth of their relationship, it was realistic and smooth in pacing.

Jack of hearts gave you a small snippet into the lives of the supporting characters, breathing life into the possibility of another great story to read. An action packed forbidden love story, with swoon worthy love scenes and action-filled scenes with the right amount of suspense.

As a regular reader of Sandra Owens, she does not disappoint in this new series. The new plot was refreshing and her characters was diverse. I love stories that transport me into the world created by the author and hold me there until the very end and Jack of Hearts do that elegantly.

The only growth area for this book is introducing new relationships between supporting characters did not flow as smoothly. The book ends with the possibilities of a relationship with the other Gentry brothers.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review from NetGalley.

I provided links below for anyone interested in reading Jack of Hearts. Jack of hearts is available to read for free with a subscription to Kindle Unlimited, a book subscription service that allows readers to borrow up to 10 books at a time and access up to 700,000 books.
