Gene:   Romance


When Helen Brody needed her office repaired, she never expected that the contractor would be Jamie Evans, the man with whom she shared an unforgettable night a year earlier. Jamie hasn't forgotten Helen, either, and now that he's found her, he's determined not to let her get away again.

Helen can't get involved with Jamie, because he wants something she can't give him, but she can't deny the explosive, out of control attraction between them. As they try to work through their feelings, they find that the hit and run driver who destroyed Helen's office has more plans for her. Will they have only a handful of nights together, or will they have the chance to build something lasting?

Our Review
Is the first book in the Donovan Family Series. A family full of Cops, FBI, Lawyers. Each one has their own story. This one is about Helen Brody a lawyer who represents clients in child custody cases. 

You first meet Helen & Jamie after what she feels is no accident in her now destroyed office. Her landlord has informed her a contractor will be arriving to assess the damage, but what she doesn't know is the contractor is someone she had a 1 night stand with a year ago and hasn't seen since. Someone who rocked her world that night and she hasn't thought of anyone else since. 

Jamie can't believe the woman before him is the same one that turned his world upside down and left him wanting no one else but her. Must have been some night. Right away he is struggling with feelings for her, or lets say "containing" those feelings. :) 

It doesn't take long for Jamie to wiggle his way back into Helen's life. Her family of cops are trying to help her find out who caused the damage and want nothing more than to keep her safe. And right away they sense something about Jamie and his connection to Helen. 

Of course as a lawyer there is always someone out there that loses and someone who is unhappy when they lose and Helen may not be so safe. 
And Jamie makes it his mission not just to keep her safe but to make sure she realizes how much he wants her and not just for now, but for always. 

Helen on the other hand wants to just let him go before she ends up hurting him. So afraid he will end up resenting or hating her for not being able to give him the one thing he said that one night a year ago that he always wanted. 

But Jamie isn't letting any of the happen. All I can say is WOW I need to find a man like Jamie, are there any out there, because this man made my heart melt and pound at the same time. 

This is a very fast romantic read with a great story of trying to find the bad guy, protecting a mom and her children and falling in love. 

Looking forward to reading the next Donovan Family book "Watch Me".

Book Review for The Wager by Rene Folsom

Gene:   Romance


You’d think the masks would come off once the ball drops at the New Year’s masquerade but, tossing caution to the wind, Liam and Maci decide to have a bit of fun by continuing to keep their faces hidden from each other during a night full of games and passion. 

Get to know these two game-playing lovers before they even know each other in The Wager, a prequel to the new novel in the Playing Games series, Game Changer

Note: This contemporary romance novella is an optional read in the Playing Games series and contains adult situations meant for ages 18+.

Our Review
Very fast read but what a fun book. What a way to introduce Liam and Maci but through a costume party.

Maci agrees to go with her friend Sky to a New Years Eve party with people Sky works with. Dressed in her sexy costume her and Sky arrive at Liam's condo. And the Sparks start as soon as they both see each other. Maci in her sexy black cat outfit and Liam as the Phantom of the Opera.

Before they know it they have a bet with each gaining something if they win. They play three rounds of a video game and if you ask me they both win. Of course when it's all said and done one of them is sneaking out and now I have to rush off to read Game Changer to find out what happens next.

Really a fast, sexy, steamy fun read and great way to lead into the next book.

Sunset Reads: Damian & Layla (A Sunset Reads Novel, #2) by D.C. Triana Release Blitz

book blurb

One year.

It’s been one year since Agent Damian Trent left for Washington without a word.

One year since he’s seen her beautiful face.

One year since he’s heard his name on her lips.

He's been recently called back to New York City on assignment, to catch a criminal who’s trying to infiltrate Sunset Reads. The last thing he expects is to work side by side with the woman he turned his back on.

Having her close is an unwanted distraction that he’s more than willing to ignore, if only she wasn’t so damn tempting.

Everything seems under control, until a night of feverish passion has him abandoning all thoughts of reason. Now, he will do everything in his power to get her back, and even more so to protect her.

Layla Reece wants nothing to do with the man who left her a year ago.

The man who took her heart with him, leaving her broken.

After a year of trying to forget Damian Trent, she is finally ready to move on.

But trying to forget him becomes a tedious task when he suddenly reappears in her life.

Although she fights to stay away, his magnetism is too strong and she finds herself giving into the deep timbre of his voice, and the strength and safety of his arms.

Staying away from Damian turns out to be futile, especially when his kisses consume her and his heart shatters the walls she spent so much time building.

Finding herself in danger, she now has to turn to the only man she trusts to keep her safe, but can she trust him enough to give him her heart once again?

meet the author

My name is D.C. and I'm the author of a new series currently on Amazon called Sunset Reads. The first book is based on the couple William and Cristina who find themselves fighting their urges to be with one another although a series of heated moments changes their lives forever.

I grew up in New York, I'm the daughter of two wonderful,Colombian immigrant parents. I'm a traveler, the travel bug hit me a couple years ago and my goal is to eventually see the whole world. So far I've gotten to Italy and Japan...I'm thinking Germany next. I started to write as an outlet for being bullied at school and as soon as I started I couldn't put the pen down. It was always my dream to be a published author, ever since the age of fourteen, and now at 34 I finally accomplished my goal.

I plan on continuing to write and really truly want to get to meet new readers and writers and share experiences and ideas. Being a part of forums is new to me, but I would love to get to know about the people who love to dream and create new ideas and fantasies through literature just like I do. Thank you for making me a part of your group and allowing me to join you in these amazing adventures in storytelling and reading.

I hope you enjoy reading William & Cristina’s story and continue to join me in this journey within the doors of Sunset Reads! Please sign up to my email list on for free giveaways, new excerpts and more on Sunset Reads upcoming new release!
