SYNOPSIS

When life in the fast lane threatens to implode …

Melanie Hunt’s job working for the Delta racing team means she is constantly rubbing shoulders with Formula One superstars in glamorous locations like Monte Carlo. But she has already learned that keeping a professional distance is crucial if she doesn’t want to get hurt.

New Delta team driver Aiden Foster lives his life like he drives his cars – fast and hard. But, no matter how successful he is, it seems he always falls short of his championship-winning father’s legacy. If he could just stay focused, he could finally make that win.

Resolve begins to slip as Melanie and Aiden find themselves drawn to each other –with nowhere to hide as racing season begins. But when a troubled young boy goes missing, everything is thrown into turmoil, including Aiden’s championship dream.

Book Review ~ ‘Before You’ by Kathryn Freeman ~ 5 Stars!

SO. MUCH. LOVE!

Before You was everything I hoped for, and so much more. Sexy, funny, romantic and glamorous, I devoured Aiden and Mel’s story, and was sad to leave it behind as I turned the last page.

I don’t know a huge amount about Formula One, but that didn’t affect my enjoyment of the book at all – Kathryn Freeman did a fantastic job at setting the scene, introducing us to the characters, the team at Delta, and the jobs they all had to do in a way that made it exciting to read; I understood a little more about how racing works as a competitive sport, and became excited to see Aiden back behind the wheel, sitting on the edge of my seat as he raced.

I adored Mel and Aiden’s relationship. Slow-burning to start, but fiery and unstoppable as it progressed, I loved seeing both Mel and Aiden’s thought processes as the relationship heated up, and seeing how the glamorous racing life could come between them. Above all though, I loved young Tom and the family dynamic he brought to the story that brought tears to my eyes and had me smiling. His role in Mel and Aiden’s life and in the progression of their relationship was so beautiful to witness and I loved the scenes where they were all together, just laughing, talking or even fighting. Together they brought out the best in each other, and I loved seeing his innocent, and broken character grow stronger and more impassioned as he enters the racing world.

A gorgeous, exciting romance with family ties weaved throughout, this was a stunning novel that enthralled me from start to finish.

5 Stars!

SYNOPSIS

Sometimes help comes from the most unlikely places …

Living in a small village like Hibberton, it’s expected that your neighbours help you in a time of need. But when Andrea Kelly’s house burns down, taking all her earthly possessions with it, it’s the distant and aloof Doctor David Adams – the person she would least expect – who opens his door not just to her, but to her three kids and slightly dotty elderly mother as well.

Andrea needs all the help she can get, dealing with aftermath of the fire and in the suspicious absence of her fiancé, Jonathan. But, as she gets to know David and his troubled son, Jake, she begins to realise that maybe they need her help as much as she needs theirs …

Book Review ~ ‘Learning to Love’ by Sheryl Browne ~ 5 Stars!

Addictive, heartfelt, romantic; Learning to Love has all the  elements of a perfect feel-good romance. Author Sheryl Browne has aced it again.

Learning to Love was a rollercoaster of a story, I experienced so many emotions from the brilliantly drawn out supporting characters, as well as Andrea and David, that I became so invested in the lives and happiness of the inhabitants of Hibberton village.

Andrea and David didn’t get off to the best start, but it was this tension that made their relationship so much fun to watch grow. There were twists and turns and ups and downs, but witnessing them grow as people and parents because of their friendship was so great to see. The stresses of Andrea’s everyday life of juggling two teenage children, a toddler, and an elderly mother and a emotionally withdrawing fiancé was written to a T.

The children were my favourite characters. I loved how realistically they were portrayed, their sniping, their moodiness, their stubborness, but also in how they coped with pain and uncertainty. Sophie’s heartbreak at their dog being missing after the fire really resonated with me, and I loved her for her hope and loyalty.

A gorgeous story, with a mystery ravelling throughout Learning to Love is a fantastic, thrilling read with characters you’ll learn to love and those you’ll yearn to hate (even though you can’t!)

5 Stars!
