Without You By Lindsay Detwiler

Without You By Lindsay Detwiler

On the surface, Jenna Landsen has it all…

She’s smart, beautiful, confident, and married to Camden Landsen, who happens to be drop dead sexy and just as successful. But after five long years, all the success in the world hasn’t brought the romantic spark back into her marriage. Jenna fears it never will.

When life gives you lemons, open a bakery and name it Vi’s…

Violet Streiff made the exact mistake her mother warned against—she fell in love with Liam Coffman, a charming finance major. When he left her heartbroken to further his career, Violet drowned her sorrows by opening a bakery, and now relies on Bob, her eighteen-pound cat, for warmth at night instead of a sexy man.

To find love, sometimes you first have to discover yourself…

When Jenna’s job offers an extended trip to New York, she packs her bags and takes a two-month vacation from life. The chance of her marriage surviving looks grim, until the surprise of a lifetime throws a wrench in her plans to stay in the Big Apple for good.

You can bend the rules—but sooner or later they’ll break…

When Violet meets a gloomy but totally drool-worthy guy named Camden in her shop, she’s sure her luck has changed. There’s no denying the chemistry, but he’s married, and that’s a major problem. Violet isn’t a homewrecker. Still, staying away from Camden proves nearly impossible. That is, until his wife comes home.

Two women.
Two men.
Double the chance to find love in the most
unexpected places—or double the chance for disaster.

My Thoughts:

I was given this book for an honest review, after having read Lindsay’s first novel Voice of Innocence, I really was looking forward to this book and it didn’t let me down. It was brilliant, I loved the fact there are two main characters Vi and Jenna and they both have ways as Jenna is a business woman and Vi owns a coffee shop. I felt myself drawn more to Vi than Jenna as I could see myself in her a bit. This story is about two women who are looking for the same thing but have different ways of getting what they want.

Jenna’s Journey ( A Greek Island Mystery Book 1) By Julie Ryan

Jenna’s Journey ( A Greek Island Mystery Book 1) By Julie Ryan

When Jenna decides on a whim to go to Greece, she’s trying to escape her failing marriage. Will Greg let her go so easily though?

Can she make a new future for herself and how did she get involved in an antiques smuggling ring? Is fellow holidaymaker Tom all he seems and will it be happy ever after with Nikos? It’s not until twenty-five years later that some of the questions are finally answered.

My Thoughts:

This story had plenty of twists and turns, it did dart around a bit from place to place and character to character but I could not guess what was going to happen next. It is a slow paced book but with lots of description which I enjoyed. This is a must for those of you that love a romantic story set in a beautiful country. It made me want to go on holiday to Greece.

Seaside Hearts (Love in Bloom: Seaside Summers, Book 2) By Melissa Foster

Seaside Hearts (Love in Bloom: Seaside Summers, Book 2) By Melissa Foster

 

IN SEASIDE HEARTS…

Jenna Ward is vivacious, spontaneous, and confident–except when she’s around the man who stole her heart years earlier, strikingly handsome, quiet, and reliable Pete Lacroux. After years of trying to get his attention and overwhelmed from dealing with her mother’s new cougar lifestyle, Jenna’s giving up on Peter–and is ready to explore other men.

As the eldest of five siblings, with an alcoholic father to care for, boat craftsman Pete Lacroux always does the right thing and has no time for a real relationship. He’s looking forward to seeing his friend Jenna, a welcome distraction who’s so damn sexy and so painfully shy that she equally entertains and confuses him.

When Jenna picks up a hard-bodied construction worker, jealousy ignites Pete’s true feelings, and he’s powerless to ignore the desires for Jenna he never realized he had. But Pete’s not the quiet guy he appears to be, and his life is anything but conducive to a relationship. Can Jenna handle the real Pete Lacroux–the sexiest, most passionate alpha male she’s ever seen–or will she crack under pressure? And can Pete reclaim the life he once had without tearing apart his family?

My Thoughts:

I am totally and utterly in love with these books. They keep you hooked right from the start. The characters are fun and interesting, I really liked Jenna as she loves collecting stone and has a large collection of flip-flops, which I found to be quite quirky. I have to say that this book is a little raunchy in places, but in my opinion Melissa Foster has written it brilliantly as it isn’t too much or too in your face. The story also covers alcoholism, which I think Melissa has written about really well. She manages to do it sympathetically. Really looking forward to the next book. I would definitely recommend this book.
