Independent single mother Tamara Briggs wanted to find a new, sexy, no-strings-attached man-just not one as young as NASCAR driver Elec Monroe. But he sure does get her heart racing. And after she’s tricked into a blind date with him, Tamara gives in to her passion. Things screech to a halt, though, when he asks to meet her children. Whatever happened to wham-bam-thank-you ma’am? Suddenly Tamara has to decide how much risk she’s willing to take to experience the power of true love.

PhotobucketI have this series for awhile and admit that I bought on a whim mostly because of the covers. They are great, but after reading a few reviews and discovering this books are considered really good I decided to made them jump the TBR pile and now I cant wait to read all of them.

This series is all about romance and it’s more than friends, we actually can see these people like a family and I love when some characters return in a romance series and we can see more of their life and how the future holds the HEA.

In this book we met several car racers, but the most important one is a rookie from a legend family and he fell in love with the wrong woman. Elec Monroe is used to the world of Nascar because since he was a kid he’s father used to race and now he’s following the footsteps and he’s actually very talented.

Tamara is a widow and mother of two kids. her late husband was a pilot and died driving, now two years later she’s trying to start over and dating again, but decided to be a little safe and date a man with a safe job like hers, the only problem is that he’s really boring. She’s a college teacher and after realizing Greg was not great, break up was the only way to go. But on that same night she suddenly was attracted with another man and he was prefect for a one night stand, but she wasn’t expecting a full relationship and he’s the last man she wanted to have in her life.  Her in-laws have a fight with his family, he’s a racer and he’s younger than her.

But Elec is so nice and sweet and he can give a mean massage. Plus he has some secrets and believes she’s the perfect to understand him and find a future together.

I loved the kids and how smarts they are. Elec was perfect the hole book. Dealing with the Crystal affair so secure and following his heart and fighting for the women he loves. Tamara had to fight some insecurities and I liked how normal her characters was, showing that after kids and a couple of years of marriage some women can find happiness again without having to touch up.Photobucket

Tempe, Arizona is as far removed from paranormal activity as is possible. And that’s where Atticus O’Sullivan, rare book salesman, herb peddler, and 2,000 year old Druid – the last of his kind – has decided to set up shop. He’s been on the run, guarding a very powerful sword from a very angry ancient Celtic god for over two millennia now.

But while these years have been good to him – Atticus has become more powerful than he could have possibly imagined – The Morrigan, a very old god of death, has predicted death and doom for our hero, and it’s up to Atticus, with help from a pride of werewolves, and a gorgeous bartender with a secret of her own, to stay alive, hopefully for another thousand years.(Goodreads)

Cara has never been one of those girls: confident, self-possessed, and always ready with the perfect thing to say. A girl at the very top of the popularity tower. One of the Populazzi.

Now, junior year could change everything. Cara’s moving to a new school, and her best friend urges her to seize the moment—with the help of the Ladder. Its rungs are relationships, and if Cara transforms into the perfect girlfriend for guys ever-higher on the tower, she’ll reach the ultimate goal: Supreme Populazzi.

The Ladder seems like a lighthearted social experiment, a straight climb up, but it quickly becomes gnarled and twisted. And when everything goes wrong, only the most audacious act Cara can think of has a chance of setting things even a little bit right.(Goodreads)

Sometimes sorry isn’t enough….

It’s winter break in Ascension, Maine. The snow is falling and everything looks pristine and peaceful. But not all is as it seems…

Between cozy traditions and parties with her friends, Emily loves the holidays. And this year’s even better–the guy she’s been into for months is finally noticing her. But Em knows if she starts things with him, there’s no turning back. Because his girlfriend is Em’s best friend.

On the other side of town, Chase is having problems of his own. The stress of his home life is starting to take its toll, and his social life is unraveling. But that’s nothing compared to what’s really haunting him. Chase has done something cruel…something the perfect guy he pretends to be would never do. And it’s only a matter of time before he’s exposed.

In Ascension, mistakes can be deadly. And three girls—three beautiful, mysterious girls—are here to choose who will pay.

Em and Chase have been chosen.(Goodreads)
