Book Blurb:

Azaleigh’s life is simple until, by chance, she meets Kale. Charming and handsome Az is immediately drawn to him. But long kept secrets lurk in the hearts of those Az holds most dear, and dangerous plans are unfolding around her. As her life begins to crumble and Kale disappears, Gage, charismatic and striking, arrives, providing a calm port in an increasingly violent storm. But with every narrow escape from a far from human bounty hunter after her life, Az begins to unravel a secret with the power to change her forever. In an increasingly hostile world of Angel and Fallen, Azaleigh must navigate her own path, chose her own side, and ultimately protect her heart. Faced with two gorgeous men, an enemy she doesn’t know, and a future she cannot understand, Az must make the choice: the man she loves, or the man she cannot live without.

My Thoughts:

This is a book about angels, but there’s so much more than just that. Azaleigh, or Az as everyone say, doesn’t know about her future and everything that happens around her. But she’s in danger when two different kind of angels fight to dominate.
 
The book also shows two different kinds of love, and it’s interesting to see that Az, likes both Kale and Gage, but it’s so different, Gage is more like a friendship and the Kale is a deep feeling that changed the way she sees things around her.
 
I loved the fact that these two men show Az different parts of her life and what she was missing, but there’s so much characters going around that it’s a bit confusing after we get to know the story and the reasoning for her protection. I think the book could be a bit longer and Tobias story could be shared more slower.

Excerpts:

I opened my eyes, and I could see of all the shades of blue that made his eyes so brilliant. They twisted and interlocked, creating the most vibrant color. He leaned towards me, and I felt my legs weak and wanting to give way. He held my gaze, and I wanted so badly to look away; this was not something I was ready for. Finally, his lips were within an inch of mine. I forced my eyes closed as he whispered, “Azaleigh.” He pressed his lips zealously to mine. With each supple kiss, my lips fell in perfect formation. A surge of heat rushed through me. His hands reached up cupping my jaw line on each side, holding me in place. His last kiss gently pulled at my top lip and softly let go. He lingered inches from my face. I stood there with my eyes closed. I was too petrified to open them. I felt his thumb brush across my cheek in reassurance. I couldn’t speak. I was afraid my words would dissolve the moment, and I would never get the magic back again. But like all great things, the end was inevitable.

This sounds like a great series and is already on book #3. Loved those abs by the way and we get to see a bit of a face, not much.

Under Fire (Elite Force #3) by Catherine Mann

An decorated hero, para rescueman Liam McCabe lives to serve. Six months ago, he and Rachel Flores met in the horrific aftermath of an earthquake in the Bahamas. They were tempted by an explosive attraction, yet parted ways. Still, Liam has thought about Rachel every day—and night—since.

Now, after ignoring all his phone calls for six months, Rachel has turned up on base with a wild story about a high-ranking military traitor. She claims no one but Liam can help her—and she won’t trust anyone else.

With nothing but her word and the testimony of a discharged military cop to go on, Liam would be insane to risk his career—even his life—to help this woman who left him in the dust.

Book Blurb:

Twins? The startling revelation that his affair with Jenna Baker had produced two little boys was almost impossible to grasp. Tycoon Nick Falco had never considered himself the settling-down type, yet now that fatherhood had been thrust upon him, he was determined to give his sons his name. But their mother wasn’t about to let him back into her life…at least not without those three little words Nick had never, ever said.

My Thoughts:

I love Halequin books and some of this series are extra special for me, so when I discovered this one for free on Amazon, I decided it was perfect to Why Buy the Cow? Reading Challenge 2012. There’s also another plus, Harlequin makes great books with babies and sometimes we just want to read a HEA.
 
This one is no exception, and there’s even two babies. Nick Falco has only one rule for his love live, no sex with employees and that’s what happened in this book. Plus he has some mutant chromosomes because the twins are so his fault and a copy of his dimples.
 
I loved how Nick struggled first to accept the truth but also started to see his life with kids and started to enjoy this change. It was very fun to read how he took care of the babies and also decided to change his life. For a womanizer this was a serious change but he was so sweet with the babies and change diapers from two is very difficult at first. Fun read and a bit sweet too.
