For Her Protection by Amber A Bardan - Review

Forherprotectiontourbanner
forherprotection_msr (1)You shouldn’t mix business with pleasure. Yet pleasure seems to be the one and only thing on Charlize’s mind the moment Connor steamrollers into her life. Desperate to save her family company, prove she’s more than a pretty face and worthy of being CEO, pleasure is a distraction she can’t afford. She doesn’t want a bodyguard, especially not one whose caveman heroics kick her libido into hyper drive. But surrounded by enemies and an attacker on the loose, there’s only one man she can trust with her life. Connor knows better than to get personal with clients. Yet there couldn’t be anything more personal about his feelings for Charlize. From the moment he clapped eyes on her he wanted nothing more than to throw her over his shoulder and really give her something to scream about. He’ll get his uptight she-cat to unwind, preferably one orgasm at a time. With Connor in her office, her home, driving her to sweet, merciless distraction, there’s only so long Charlize can resist his sexy, dominant brand of protection. A Romantica® contemporary erotic romance from Ellora’s Cave

My Thoughts: For Her Protection is exciting, sexy, and full of mystery. I read the entire book in one day and I wanted more. Amber A Bardan wrote a captivating story and added the perfect amount of steaminess to it. I was completely surprised by the twists in the book.

The characters are amazing. Charlize is strong and independent. She doesn't need help and she is bent on proving she can rule in what she perceives as a man's world. Connor is sexy and protective. He knows exactly how strong and stubborn Charlize is. I absolutely loved reading about them trying to overcome their differences. It made for a rocky and more realistic romance.

I think that any readers who enjoy a good mystery with some sexy romance will enjoy this book. It is definitely for the 18+ crowd. It is an awesome read and I can't wait to check out other books by Amber A Bardan.

Too Close To Home by Tressa Messenger - Review

tooclosetohome-croppedWhen the body of a beautiful and popular senior head cheerleader, Melissa Cooley, is found brutally stabbed to death at the local high school it sends the small coastal community in North Carolina into a frenzy.
To make matters worse…another body is found.
A slacker boy by the name of Ronald Marks is found hanging from the field goal post on the football field only a day later. Pamlico County native Detective Carma Jones, and her partner Harold Green, set out on a search for this ruthless assailant who is wrecking havoc in a normally peaceful community.
No one is safe and everyone is a suspect.
The twists and turns along the way lead them in a direction Carma would’ve never guessed. One filled with deep secrets that were meant to stay buried…
Review: Too Close to Home is a fast paced exciting thriller. I was on the edge of my seat from the beginning and I didn't know what to expect. I thought the twists were great.

Carma was the main character, and I loved her tough attitude. Her own struggles as she solved the case gave the book something extra. I also loved each little insight into other characters. Some of the time I wasn't sure who to suspect until another piece was revealed.

This book was a fast read, and I couldn't wait to find out who the killer was. I enjoyed the side stories between characters, and I loved the small town feel of the book. I think people who like thrillers will enjoy this book.
