This is a new author for me, but I am impressed with this book. It looks like I have a new author to follow! Gabriel lives on an island off the Jacksonville coast called Rockaway Island. Gabriel used to be in the Marines but is out and now volunteers with the Coast Guard. He was married Taylor and they had a daughter named Emily. Gabriel is supposed to meet Taylor at the ferry so he can spend the weekend with Emily.
In the meantime, Chloe works for her best friend Sienna who asks her to go to Rockaway Island to check out a potential investment opportunity for one of their clients. All Chloe wants is some vacation time, but she agrees to go. Chloe is at he ferry getting ready to get on when she sees a man with a gun near her telling a woman and her little girl to get on the ferry. The little girl freezes and mother keeps urging her little girl to get on. The man tries to force the little girl on, but the mother starts fighting with him and he pushes her in the water. Chloe gets between the man and little girl and distracts the man and tells the little girl to run, which she does. The man grabs Chloe and tells her to get on the ferry. The little girl is Emily, Gabriel's daughter. When Gabriel makes it to the hospital to see his ex-wife and daughter, they use him to go help the woman on the ferry. You need to read the book to see what happens.
The book was very exciting and had twists and turns I did not expect. I loved the book as it was exciting along with a love story. I didn't want to put the book down, but wanted to read it to the end. I loved all the characters in the book. I encourage you to read the book. I was given a copy for an honest review.
This was such a good book!!! It has suspense, betrayal, war, friendship, headache, children and most of all love. Olivia is Jack’s younger adopted sister. Jack and Ben are best friends. Ben has been attracted to Olivia since she was 13. He has kissed her once or twice, but they are older now and Ben is getting ready to deploy for nine months. Ben and Olivia have a night of making love. Ben asks Olivia to wait for him and she agrees. Unfortunately the war takes its toll on Ben where something horrific happens. Olivia also goes through something where she needs Ben, but he isn’t there. He finally comes back to the small Florida town one night and sees police cars in front of Olivia’s house. He stops to see what is happening. He finds out someone broke into her house, but also gets the surprise of his life. You will red to read the book to see what happens.
I just can’t say enough on how good this book was. I felt so bad for Olivia and some of the things she went through as a child and had to come to face with harsh realities as an adult. Ben seemed like such a good guy, but like others who have gone to war had to come to terms with the things that happened to him there. Olivia’s brother Jack was wonderful and stood by Olivia in everything she went through. There was a small group of friends there that had each others backs. Be prepared for some tears in this book—sad as well as happy. There is a wonderful journey that Olivia and Ben have to go through to make them stronger as a couple. I strongly encourage you to read this book. I voluntarily read an Advanced Readers Copy of the book.
This is another great book. Sofie is Olivia’s (from Warrior) best friend and has been in love with Olivia’s brother Jack since high school. Olivia is looking at a college in Louisiana to attend and Jack is getting ready to be shipped out of the marines. Then one night something terrible happens to Sofie, and a few days later she leaves town without telling Jack why. It is ten years later and her mother has died and her two younger brothers have no one to take care of them but her. She reluctantly decides to come back to the small Florida town to take care of her brothers who she hasn’t had much contact with for the last ten years. Her brothers are bitter towards her and she has an up heal battle to get to know them. Jack has spent a lot of time with them and they think the world of Jack. It takes a while to see why Olivia didn’t want to come back home. You will need to read the book to see what happens.
This was another great book that had mystery, suspense, betrayal, friendship and love. Once I found out what happened to Olivia I felt bad for her. Part of me was frustrated with her for not staying and telling Jack and her mother what happened. But then again she was only 17 and not that mature. I loved seeing how she got to know her brothers and wanted to be there for them and protect them. Jack was such a great guy and kept trying with Olivia even though she kept pushing him away. He knew her so well, he could tell she still had feelings for him and knew something was wrong. He just couldn’t get Olivia to open up to him. This was one of those books you don’t want to put down. I strongly encourage you to read the book. I voluntarily read an Advanced Readers Copy of the book.

They are worried as she doesn't answer her texts or phone. On Monday Piper finds out she is not in class. Piper goes to the campus bookstore to talk to her boyfriend, Gavin, who works at the store. She finds him in the back room making out with another girl, gets mad, and takes off. About this time she gets a call from her sister letting her know they found Carly. You need to read the book to see what happens.
This is a great book with a lot of suspense. There is a serial killer on the loose that hasn't been caught. There is someone trying to get away from publicity. There is a hunky ex-marine and now cop that wants to help. There are some sweet ladies that run a bed and breakfast in a small town in Florida. We also get to see Chloe from the last book and catch up with her. How can you not love a book with suspense, love, friendship, and great characters? I encourage you to read the book.

This was a good story about a man Scott Green coming home from war with a prosthesis on the bottom part of one of his legs. He was having a hard time with acceptance when he got home, and was invited to his neighbor’s house for Christmas. This is where he met Faith who was home from college for the Christmas break. Faith’s family was funny crazy, especially her grandpa. Faith ended up kissing Scott under the mistletoe as her whole family watched. I got the feeling through the whole book that her family was trying to get the two together. They went over to his house and made out, but he wouldn’t take it any further even though Faith wanted to. She ended up going back to college without seeing Scott again. You need to read the book to see what happens when she comes back home the next Christmas.
I felt bad for Scott at first as I can’t imagine what it would feel like to have been fighting let aline losing part of your leg. I loved how he changed in the year that Faith was gone and he was so much softer. The best part for me was his interaction with one of Faith’s young nieces when she asked about his leg. I loved that Scott’s leg didn’t bother Faith and she was liked him for who he was. It was a good book and I encourage you to read it. I voluntarily read an Advanced Reader’s Copy of this book.
I love romantic suspense, so Anchor was just right for me! I loved the characters, the action, and the romance! I loved the flow of the story, and the writing was great! In Anchor, Chloe is boarding a ferry, when she sees a guy with a gun, and Chloe puts herself in risk to save a little girl, and for her trouble she and some other passengers get taken hostage on the ferry. Gabe is the father of the little girl Chloe saved, and since he's thankful, he wants to help save Chloe and the others from the hostage situation, and somehow through this intense situation, a bond and romance begin to brew between Gabe and Chloe. I enjoyed Anchor a lot! Chloe is wonderful and a badass, and Gabe is a sweetheart and also a badass himself. The chemistry was excellent between them, and the sex scenes were very well written and they were hot! The action was great, and I liked the whole premise for the story. The only things I wasn't loving were small things, so they didn't affect my rating. I could have done without the beginning scene with Gabe and his bed partner from the night before, and also the scenes with Gabe and his ex felt a bit too intimate emotionally for my tastes; I'm not sure why, but I felt like if the circumstances were right, they'd fall into bed together again, so I could have done without that as well, and I also would have liked a bit more time spent on the romance and a bit less time on the ferry. I'm glad I read this, and I'm looking forward to reading more from Nicole Blanchard and more books in this series!
Review - Warrior - 4 stars
I listened to the audiobook of Warrior, and I loved that there was a female voice for the female lead's chapters, and there was a male voice for the male lead's chapters, and they both did a great job; especially the male speaker. I liked the female voice too, but it was a little bit too breathy for me, but it was good for the sex scenes, so I'm going to mark that down as a good job. In Warrior, Ben is a soldier home for the weekend, when he finally gives in to his attraction to long-time friend, Olivia, the 2 have a very hot, wonderful night together before Ben has to leave again. Ben is going to be away for a long time, and won't have reliable access to outside communication, so even though there are feelings between the two, they don't really solidify anything between them, but some things happen that change things for the both of them, and they need to re-evaluate each of their lives. I love when 2 characters have been trying to resist each other, but in the end, they can't handle it anymore and can't keep their hands off of each other. Poor Olivia has some really upsetting things happen to her, and I really felt for her! Poor girl! I love how resilient she is, and even through tough times, she shows her strength. After reading the premise, I wasn't sure how I'd feel about her, but I'm glad the premise wasn't quite accurate with the whole situation. She does get on my nerves sometimes, but nothing too major, just her being stubborn. Ben has some crap stuff happen to him too, which makes him feel like he doesn't have much to give to a serious relationship, so he withholds himself from Olivia, and for some reason he thinks he is a bad guy, but I never saw anything in this book for why he would feel that way. I love that for the most part he is light-hearted and playful, but he also maintains his sexy manliness. Ben and Olivia are adorable together, and they have some really sweet moments, and the sex scenes were hot! The chemistry was really great between the 2, and you can feel how deeply they care for each other, and I loved that they've known each other for a long time. There is some suspense in this story, which kept the story entertaining, and created some good tension in the story and between the characters. I do think the characters should have figured out the situation a lot sooner than they did because the link was sort of obvious to me, and I was surprised the characters didn't consider that option. The writing was smooth, and I liked the flow of the story. There are some interesting side characters, who look like they will have their own books in this series, so I would definitely like to check those out, and I look forward to more books by Nicole Blanchard!
Review - Savior - 5 stars
I love the suspense and romance that Nicole Blanchard creates in her stories! In Savior, the story starts out with a serial killer killing a woman at an university, and then leads into the female leads story. Piper's life is hit hard with the events of the serial killer, and she is finding it difficult to stay in one place, or let her walls down to let others into her life. Piper gets a job at a bed and breakfast, and meets local cop Logan, who is the nephew of the B&B owner. Logan sees Piper is withholding something, so wanted to make sure his family is safe and she is on the up and up, he decides to find out more about Piper, and along the way he begins to feel an attraction towards her. Piper tries to push Logan away, but he is on to her and won't let her run away, and when women start being attacked again, Logan will do what it takes to protect her. Piper and Logan are really sweet, and I loved how protective Logan is of her. There are some hot scenes between the two, and Logan definitely knows how to get the blood flowing. I loved the mystery, and even though I guessed early what was what, I still really enjoyed how the story unfolded, and I loved how tough Piper is. I loved getting glimpses of the other characters from the past books! Nicole Blanchard's books are interesting and entertaining and I can't wait for the next one!
