WOW what a story this one is it is so powerfully emotional two people that have both been through so much starting with fathers that just shouldn't have been fathers they had a lot in common and then that led them both to a life of hurt and danger that brings them together and then ultimately passion and a love so strong.

Temple Cross has become a hired assassin so as she can search for her sister who was taken and sold to criminals for people trafficking, Temple is a very strong and determined woman she will do anything to find her sister and when she is contracted to kill the underworld boss Jericho by the Nine Circles club she knows she is also getting closer to her sister but her life is about to be changed forever.

Jericho or Theodore Fitzgerald billionaire has a goal in life one that he has worked so hard to achieve for the last sixteen years he comes a cross as such a hard hard man he is gorgeous but there is way more to this man than meets the eye and when he has Temple the woman that is hired to kill him in his hands the emotion and spark that she draws from him just cannot be denied, he really needs to keep his mind on pulling down the criminal empire he now controls not have Temple on his mind.

This is an amazing story of a hero and heroine that are both stained both are on a mission neither one of them feel they can love or deserve to be loved but you know love strikes the most deserving and when it gets Jericho and Temple the lights explode. I still have tears in my eyes writing this review truly I was left speechless and gobsmacked by the intense love and passion that flew of the pages. MS Ashenden this story is going to stay with me for a long time such and awesome powerful emotional journey to an awesome HEA thank you.

I have a fondness for historical stories and even though this one is not historical there are a lot of references to that era and I fell into it as I do with MS Ruttan's stories her books always have me turning the pages and this one is a beauty.

Geri Collins has grown up with her unloving mother in Scotland never knowing who her fathers is, Geri is now a Doctor and when her father arrives on the scene a Lord no less and offers her the position of cardiologist at his practice she jumps at the chance to help her father and to get to know him after all of these years. This is such a change for Geri and she is a bit reserved but when she meets the partner in The Harley St practice her heart flutters.

Thomas Ashwood is a cardiothoracic surgeon and a Duke the notorious Dark Duke and partner in the Harley St practice with Lord Collins and when he meets his daughter Geri his new partner well lets say the sparks fly, but Thomas is determined to stay a single man for what he thinks are good reasons and getting involved with Geri is not the thing to do but you know when sparks start flying how can he deny them.

This is really a fabulous story it is face paced beautifully written it is Christmas time and as Geri brings out the best in Thomas at this time of the year you will be smiling and the way these two click is amazing they were meant to be together. Do yourself a favour pick this one up and sit back and enjoy I loved it real sigh worthy loved the setting the characters just so good.

Fabulous story that I devoured almost in one sitting I loved the setting London at Christmas time two gorgeous people who really deserve love and find it together in such a beautiful way a story that should not be missed.

Ashleigh Murphy has run away from marriage in her home town of Bunderberg Queensland Australia and is in London working for The Maids of Chelsea struggling to keep her head above water but she has made great friends with some of the other maids and has been working in a gorgeous house where the owners are away and when she desperately needs a place to stay she squats in the house never realizing that when she is found by the owner billionaire Greek Lukas Christophedes that her life is going to change forever in such a good way.

Lukas is a determined bachelor no way is he going to marry he is quiet and guarded and his work and company mean everything to him he is not close to his family feeling not a lot of love from them but when he discovers Ashleigh in his house he decides to use her for a business deal that he needs to make never realizing that the spark that ignited his blood when they met will set him on a path of love.

This one ticks all of the boxes for a fabulous romance the setting the characters are amazing and who doesn't love a Greek hero, so much love and emotion coming off the pages as the vibrant and caring Ashleigh gets the staid Lukas to open up and feel his emotions just beautiful. I highly recommend this one sit back and enjoy it is the second book in the Maids Under the Mistletoe series and I am looking forward to the next one :) Thank you MS Shepherd this one is a keeper.

Hold Me Cowboy by Maisey Yates - Cooper Ridge: Desire #2

Review by TashNz
4.5 Stars

I really liked the beginning of the story, what a fantastic concept and I loved how I gelled with the two characters instantly.  Agreeing to 12 days together with no strings attached i thought Sam and Madison had a fantastic journey together and it was really enjoyable watching them travel the rocky path of love.

I liked Sam and Madison had irritably danced around each other for so long when ever their paths crossed, i thought the author did a fantastic job capturing that, setting the scene bringing them together.  I liked their back stories and how both had made their own stories to be part of who their character was and I liked how the author got each character to believe in the other and see the best in the other despite their own view of the world.

Another reason I enjoy Maisey's writing is becasue she's fantastic at capturing emotion and when Sam told Madison he didn't love her, my heart literally dropped - because the scene was set up so well.

I found Hold Me, Cowboy to be a lovely Christmas themed read which didn't have a wasted word or conversation, it was filled with just the right amount of everything one needs in a good book.  This book is my second visit to Cooper Ridge and I will visiting more often for sure!

OMG Loved this one this is the first book in this series that I have read and I need to catch up on them all MS Ashenden has never disappointed me in one of her stories and truly this one is a beauty a powerful emotional story of revenge and love and saving people.

Violet Fitzgerald is thought of as a daughter to a rich society family but there is a lot more to this woman who travels the world living of her trust fund the girl with the dreadlocks and the hippy nature but when she is kidnapped and her world is turned upside down you might think for the worst but maybe not.

Elijah Hunt is a billionaire turned mercenary his life was snatched away from him seven years earlier and he becomes someone else he is determined to take revenge on his new boss and he is doing this slowly but when his plans are turned around he kidnaps his bosses daughter but boy does that not turn out the way he planned she is a lot more feisty than he thinks and has him doing things he never thought he would.

WOW this book is amazing the strength that Violet shows as she stands up to Elijah and they fall in love along the way will have you sitting on the edge of your seat and cheering her on and as for Elijah he has so many secrets locked away never to be released but Violet brings them out he needs her so much. This journey is fast paced the emotion is jumping of the pages truly you are not going to want to put this one down I highly recommend reading this one it is powerfully emotional and so very sensual and moving.

I really enjoyed this one it is fast paced the setting is fabulous The Rio Olympic games this one shows the struggle that 1500m runner Drake Roberts is going through to make a dream come true but who's dream is it and then we have one of the team physical therapists Tamara York who has her rules that she is determined to follow.

I loved the connection that was instant between Drake and Tamara and the mind struggle that Drake was going through and the way Tamara handles the athlete that was known as a player and that of course was one thing that Tamara was determined to stay away from, but you know sparks cannot be denied and when the electricity sparks then hearts will follow.

I really enjoyed the first book in this series and thoroughly enjoyed this one as well Tamara is just the heroine that Drake needs she is strong and there for him I can't imagine the pressure that Olympic athletes are under and this is a well written story that makes you feel like you are there at the Olympics and I am very much looking forward to the next one in the series, thank you MS Flockton for a great story of love and a dream.

Cass has been left heartbroken and is now decidedly married to her job but when her pregnant sister needs help Jack steps up to the mark and Cass is thinking that there maybe a way that she can have a relationship with Jack and get to know Ellie without anything being permanent but will that be enough?

I highly recommend this one it is beautifully written, moving and thoughtful I loved the setting and the strength that Jack and Cass showed throughout the story. To see Jack and Cass get their HEA will bring such joy and heartfelt thanks from readers thank you MS Claydon for a story that had me hooked from page one another for the keeper shelf.
