City of Champions is book 2 in the Gateway to Love series by Chloe Barlow. Jenna is an orthopedic surgeon resident and Wyatt is a NFL quarterback with a problem right shoulder in need of surgery. Unfortunately for Wyatt, surgery is the last thing he wants. His grandfather had to undergo surgery when Wyatt was younger, but he never came out of it. He is willing to do anything to keep from going under the knife, even if that means trying to persuade a pretty resident by any means possible. Jenna has had trouble with athletes in her past and she avoids them at all costs. Will the sexy quarterback be able to break through the strong minded Jenna? Will he go too far in his quest to avoid surgery? Will Jenna be able to overcome her past fears/worries? Will they find strength in each other? Will they find love? These are two very amazing people who seem so real!
This is an amazing love story between two individuals driven by hard life lessons at young ages. One piece of advice from her dying mother, life is not fair. I love this book even though I was ugly crying at 3 am in the morning….
I was fortunate to win an ARC of Shanghai Wind by Chloe Barlow which is book 2.5 of the Gateway to Love series and part of this collaboration. This part of the series takes a troubled teen overseas to Shanghai for the summer and love blossoms only to be left in Shanghai when he returns to the states. Fast forward 6 years and they are again face to face, but the question is what is the real reason they have been thrown together… who are the bad guys and who are the good guys. I love the twists and turns this story brings! This is a great novella and I really want to see more of Feng and Colin!
This is an amazing series that you don’t want to miss!!!
I was lucky enough to have won this book on facebook. I had read about it and wanted to read it, but my TBR is so huge. However, something about it just called to me and I had to drop everything and read it. This is a story of love, loss, pain, guilt, regret, forgiveness, angst, friendship and suspense. Chloe somehow gets all these emotions into the book with out being overwhelming or pushy. The writing is brilliant and the story is unique. Althea tragically loses her husband and she can't seem to let go of the loss and guilt she feels. She has amazing friends who are supportive of her but get her to see that it's time she moves on. She meets a handsome stranger and feels a connection with him that she hasn't had since her late husband. Griffen returns to Pittsburgh and sees Althea and knows that he has to have her. Their initial meeting is funny and very steamy. I love Griffen! He has a way with words that had me sighing through the entire book. Griffen and Tea have such amazing chemistry both in and out of bed. Their conversations are deep and meaning and fun and flirty. I love the nicknames they have for each other and the sex is HOT! I loved that this story was different. Not only the plot, but the characters, the feelings and even the sex scenes. I didn't feel like I was reading "another romance" story at all. The secondary characters were such a huge part of the story that I felt like I was there with them. Tea and her friends make me miss my girls! And Trey? Hello!
Can Griffen and Tea move past their regret and guilt and find happiness in each other's arms? Will the past come back and put a wedge between them? Do not miss this amazing story!
"Do I make you nervous? He asked.
"A little," she muttered in a voice she barely recognized.
"Just breathe, " he whispered.
City of Champions
I just have to say that Three Rivers, Book 1 in the Gateway to Love series, is one of my top reads of 2014 and City of Champions is now on that list too!! I love this author, these characters and these books. The writing is outstanding and the relationships are so wonderful that I want to be friends with all of them. We met Jenna in Three Rivers and City of Champions is her story. Well, Jenna and Wyatt's story. Jenna is a doctor who comes face to face with a player she's followed since college. He's cocky, confident and a royal pain in her ass! Little does she know that Wyatt has set his sights on Jenna for more than her looks and his attraction to her. He's injured and needs a doctor. Jenna is smart, sassy and professional and she fights their chemistry until one day she just can't stay away from him. He's sexy and everything that she knows she should stay away from but his confidence, humor and determination win her over. She agrees to a holiday affair not knowing that he might have ulterior motives for wanting to be close to her. She throws in her whole body, soul and heart and isn't sure if she'll end up whole on the other side. The banter between Jenna and Wyatt is hilarious. I just love his smart ass mouth! Their spark is HOT! And, of course seeing Griffen, Tea, Aubrey, and TREY was a bonus! Sorry, I have a rather large crush on Trey (guess what? His book is next!) I laughed, cried, smiled, cursed, yelled, cried and laughed more! Will Jenna be able to trust Wyatt again? Will he realize his mistake before it's too late? Do NOT miss this amazing story!!
"Oh, the text. It's all coming back now. Unfortunately. Ugh, I can't even do a booty call right anymore. I really am a disaster." She threw the cover back over her head. "I can't believe I did that. If I didn't feel like I was about to die, I'd run and hide right now."
He stood and began to lead her out when she stopped short.
"What's that? Is that a guitar?"
"I do. I sing, too."
"You're kidding me."
A Steel Town
I love Chloe and her books. She's one of my favorite authors and I've been waiting a long time for Trey's story. It was totally worth the wait! Trey is mysterious, that's part of his appeal. No one knows the real him. We don't know his history or why he is the way he is. Until now. Jenna asked him to watch out for Wyatt's little sister, Claudia, who just moved to town and works for the FBI. Their 'meet cute' is one of my favorites. Claudia is feisty and Trey is instantly attracted to her. Even though Jenna warned him to just watch out for her, he can't help it. When they decide to work together, their attraction grows. Trey knows he's not good enough for her, but he can't seem to stay away. When danger follows them and they have to hide, they finally give into their lust for each other. Man, is it hot. Trey is so hot! He cares for her and wants to protect her. When things go sideways, will Trey be able to save Claudia? Can Claudia convince Trey that he is good enough for her love? I loved this story! I love knowing what Trey is thinking and where he came from. I loved watching him loosen up and let go. I already need more Trey!
"If you don't know how precious you are to me by now, then you're not half the genius I took you for."
