When country music star Oaken Fox joins survivalist Mike Grizz’s new adventure show in the Alaskan wilderness, he just wants to boost his fan base. But when tragedy strikes, and Air One Rescue must save them, Oaken just wants to quit. Too bad his producer has other plans—signing him on with Air One Rescue as a recruit and making a reality show…

EMT Boo Kingston did not join Air One Rescue to train a celebrity. But she’s a rookie to the team, so yes, she’ll train Oaken and keep him alive and not for a minute pay attention to his charm…

And then five women go missing from a resort during a bachelorette weekend gone south. Now, Air One and the rescue team will have to use all their skills–and manpower, including Oaken–to find them before a blizzard settles in. But can they work together before tragedy strikes?

One Last Shot
by Susan May Warren
Book 1 in the Alaska Air One Rescue series
Rating: 4.5/5

SMW never disappoints! I was excited to read the first book in this new series and was pleasantly surprised to recognize some of the characters from previous series. The world of SMW is thrilling and fast-paced with lots of action and suspense that will keep you reading until the end. She is a master storyteller who weaves romance and faith and laughter and authenticity into her books. The psychological and spiritual aspects that she addresses are always relevant and applicable to her readers. She writes with wisdom and understanding – not condemnation. Her characters are relatable and redeemable.

Highly recommend this fantastic start to a new series that you won’t want to miss!

My Review

Book 2 in A Breed Apart Legacy
Rating: 4.5/5

Wow. I love this series so much! The characters are well written and the story was well-paced. If you are not familiar with this series, you can still read the book by itself. I highly recommend reading the other books in the series though. There’s something so special about these military dog stories and their handlers. The action is nonstop and will keep the reader on their toes. The romance and chemistry is swoon worthy but the characters are flawed and authentic. Faith is subtly woven into the story. And the dog is perfect! You will not want to stop reading this fantastic story.

Highly recommend if you enjoy romantic military suspense that will sweep you off your feet and around the world!

Genre: Christian Romance
Publisher: Scrivenings Press LLC

With a fulfilling job and a home of her own, former foster child, Merritt Hastings, relishes her stable, respectable life. Dreaming for more is a sure way for heartache. When a contested will turns her world upside down, she must revaluate what’s important to her, what’s worth fighting for, and what’s worth sacrificing.

Patience has never been Sam Daniels’ strong suit with his history of acting quickly and asking questions later, and he’s ready for changes in his life…now. Too bad the plans for acquiring a radio station didn’t include a contract. Now he’s out of a job, out of a radio station, and out of prospects.

While his life is in flux, at least he can help Merritt steady hers, or will he rush in and overstep …again?

Will the sparks flying between these two opposites lead to a happily-ever-after or heartbreak for both?

My Review

Forever Home
By Hope Tyler Dougherty
Book 3 in the Forever series
Rating: 4/5

I received a complimentary copy of this book through a Blind Book Review Tour giveaway. I was able to find it also on KU which was nice too. The story is a heartwarming, honest, charming romance that believes in second chances and redemption from past trauma. The main character was someone who experienced trauma and emotional abuse in her past and the author deals with her development so gently and lovingly the way Father God does with us. Faith is woven throughout but it is not preachy at all. The writing is slower paced than I usually like but the story is well written and helps you delve into the character’s mind. The author goes back and forth between the two main character’s perspectives and the reader can really feel all of the insecurities and doubt with great authenticity. The romance between the two main characters is humorous, charming and will keep you turning to the next page. I have not read the other stories in the this series but did not feel like I needed to in order to enjoy – however, I will definitely be reading more from this author. I also loved all the musical parts – since I play piano too! 😉 

Highly recommend if you enjoy clean romance with wit, authenticity and a musical flare.
