Mad Love 2
by Colet Abedi
I read Mad Love 1 forever ago and I had accidentally stumbled onto it.  I fell in love with the characters, but the end was quite the cliffy and I have been anxiously awaiting the conclusion.  
Heartbroken by the handsome and enigmatic Clayton Astor Sinclair, Sophie Walker has put her whirlwind romance with him in the Maldives behind her and is determined to focus on her career as an artist.
But when her new job in the south of France turns out to be too good to be true, she can't help but wonder if she is making a mistake. Their passion cannot be denied, but when Clayton shuts her out after a family tragedy, Sophie is determined to fight for what is right.
She must defy all odds to find her own happily ever after.

The end of Book 1 made me crazy so I was very glad that this book picked up where the last one left off.  I felt like in this book Sophie really grew and matured, and made me respect her even more.  She realized who she was and fought for what she wanted.  So this time when Clayton shuts her out, she doesn't let him get away with it.  This book found a bit of a reversal for me, and I was mad at Clayton for a good portion, whereas last time I was mad at Sophie!!!  
This was a 4 star read for me.  The only reason it wasn't a 5 star read is because I wanted more at the end.  I think it needed an epilogue, maybe a HEA.  I highly recommend this series though and both books are available now.

The Dark Ones
by Rachel Van Dyken
It is no secret that I am a huge Rachel Van Dyken fan.  I do not normally read paranormal books, but for RVD I was willing to give it a shot.  And I am so glad that I did!  I loved this book from the very first page.
To touch a Dark One is death.
To talk to an immortal is suicide.
Yet, I've been marked by both.
A Vampire.
And the King of the immortals.
My life is no longer my own.
And now I know the truth, my life was never mine to begin with.
It was theirs.
It's always been theirs.
This book is about a group of immortals who cannot breed with other immortals so they must mate with humans.  This is going to be a series, so each immortal will have a book, which is good.  We meet all of them in this first book and I loved them all.  As with all RVD books, the characters are awesome.  This book is about a vampire named Ethan and Genesis.  Ethan was hot, sexy, and a little funny at times.  Genesis was sweet and sassy, and a little vulnerable.  I was sucked in from the first page!!

My Kind of Forever
by Heidi Mclaughlin

This is the last book in the Beaumont series and it is live today!!  This is a new part of life for Liam and Josie and I can't wait to read it, but I am sad the series is over.  
Liam Page knows music and a life of solitude, but that all changed when he returned to Beaumont.

The once notorious bad boy lead singer of 4225 West is now living the domesticated life with his wife and high school sweetheart, Josie, and their son, Noah.

Life is good for the Westbury family, until Liam is called back to Los Angeles and the place where it all started for him.

Liam and Josie’s story continues in this last installment of The Beaumont Series.

The way the mirror on my dressing table is angled gives me the perfect opportunity to watch Liam undress. This is my favorite ritual, morning and night. I’ll take the chance anytime I can to watch him methodically peel off his clothes. He’s a man who unties his shoes first, placing them back on the shoe rack. His socks are next, followed by his shirt. My peeping tom ways are often rewarded when he’s wearing a dress shirt. Not only do I get to watch the muscles in his back flex as he pushes each button through the ridiculously small hole, but his undressing is prolonged. He takes his t-shirt off the same way every time and when he pulls the collar from behind and the shirt slowly lifts inch by inch, my mouth waters. My lips become dry and my knuckles ache from my hand clutching my hairbrush. The clank of his belt buckle and the almost too silent pop of the fabric from his button down jeans have me staring intently into the mirror. My make-up is only half off, my mouth wide open and I’m the picture of someone who needs serious help. And let’s not get started on the way he gets dressed...
He knows I watch him. This is a game to him. He could sleep in or stay up late, but he doesn’t. Liam gets up with me in the morning and goes to bed when I do at night and I’m starting to think it’s because his intention is to have me committed. I may or may not have a drooling issue when it comes to staring at my husband. You’d think that after watching him grow up that I’d be used to his body, but the truth of the matter is, he didn’t fully grow until he left Beaumont. I missed the transformation from teenage boy to man. Sometimes I think I’m happy that I did, but other times, I think about all the other women out there that have experienced his transformation. I hate them all. I’m jealous of them and I don’t know why. I have him now. He chose me.          
His jeans drop to the ground and he kicks them aside, depriving me of the chance to watch him bend over to pick them up. I find myself leaning into my vanity to get a better look as his thumbs dip into the waistband of his boxer briefs. Men find women's lingerie sexy and appealing. It turns them on. The look and feel teases them and they love it. I never thought about men in their underwear until I saw Liam in his. Over the years he’s maintained his muscles, yet has a more defined physique. His boxers aren’t sagging in places they shouldn’t. My husband could be an underwear model with his form fitting briefs, although I don’t know if I’d want the world to see what he only shares with me. The cotton fabric pools at his feet. He steps out of them and turns around, showing me his naked body... a body only for my eyes, my hands, my lips and any other part of me.  
“How long are you going to stare at me?” I swallow hard as my eyes flash to his and a wicked grin plays across my lips.
“Until my eyes no longer work,” I tell him. “Or until you tell me to stop.”
“Hmm that’ll be never,” he says as he walks near me.

This is the last book in this series, but the author has said that all the kids in the series will get books!!  So exciting
