Rosecliff Manor Haunting by Cheryl Bradshaw

https://amzn.to/2IqyBGI
Psychic medium Addison Lockhart jolts awake, her brow sweaty, head throbbing. The dream had seemed so real. 

The twins, eleven-year-old Vivian and Grace, were so full of life she wanted to reach out, touch them. But she couldn't. The girls had been dead for forty years. Why then had they appeared to her, summoning her help? Were their untimely deaths really an accident, or was something far more sinister to blame?

If you enjoy a mystery with a supernatural twist, you'll enjoy this fast-paced, bestselling series.

Review:
I honestly, can't remember if I read the first book in this series, but it's safe to say you can jump into book 2 with no problem :)

It's kind of a cozy mystery with some paranormal mixed in.  I like the characters and the storyline as Addison tries to figure out what was going on .  It's a sweet novella that while not an edge of my seat page turner, present a good, solid story that is an enjoyable read.

New Release ~*~ Arresting Mason by Amber Daulton

https://amzn.to/2L8OFKN
Once you’re in a prison gang, you’re in it for life.

That’s what Mason Harding thought until the boss accepted his resignation. After the State releases him on parole, a sexy divorcĂ©e behind the wheel of a car almost ends his life quicker than a shank. His chance encounter with Mia Eddison results in a night of passion, but her brother—his parole officer—catches them together and doesn’t approve.

Mia falls hard for the cocky ex-con, but not because of his chiseled body. She vows to break through his walls and discover his secrets, but never expects those secrets to threaten her life.

When members of an organized crime ring kidnap Mia to force Mason’s return to the gang, he goes up against an old friend to save the woman he loves.  Will his sacrifice be enough or will everything fall apart in a blaze of gunfire?

Review:
I really enjoyed the ex-con storyline in this one. It's not your typical story and while some parts feel a little drawn out or overdone, it's a fast paced read that is sweet, sexy, and enjoyable.

This was my first book from Amber Daulton and I"ll be looking for more.

Men Under Fire by Jacki Delecki

Hollie Thomas, the feisty, tattooed office assistant to Grayce Walters, has come a long way from living on the streets. Along with finding a job she loves, she’s found friends and safety. When her new life unravels, she faces dangers that dwarf her troubled past. Fighting to survive, she discovers that sometimes what you need the most might be found in the one person you failed to see coming.

Returning home from the war and struggling to find his way, Sergeant Nick Welby, and his bomb-sniffing golden lab, use their skill set in the last place he’d ever imagined—Seattle’s Waterfront. To protect the one woman who matters, Nick and his trusty canine partner will risk everything to rescue her and Seattle from disaster.

Embroiled in Grayce Walters’ most perilous case—a terrorist plot with the threat of deadly explosives—can Nick and Hollie work together to save themselves and each other before it’s too late?

Review:

While I've enjoyed this series, this book was a bit of a let down. basically this is book 2, from Hollie's point of view.  While I like Hollie and glad she met someone, the whole suspense bit is lost if you've read book two because it is the exact same story. If you haven't read Women Under Fire (book 2), then this is a good story.

Detroit rules by Linda Style

STREET LAW: Whatever it takes…
Disillusioned attorney turned private investigator Charlie Street’s life shattered when her father was convicted of murder and killed in prison. Convinced he was framed, she vowed to find who was responsible and see them pay. 

Detective Remington Malone’s best friend has disappeared…the case has gone cold, but nothing, not even the threat of losing his job, can keep Remy from investigating. And as the bodies of his snitches start piling up, it’s clear someone besides the chief of police wants to stop him. 

Remy needs the best PI in town, and that’s Charlie Street. Except there’s bad blood between the investigator and Detroit’s finest. The last thing Charlie wants is to work with a cop. But when she sees a link between Remy’s case and her father’s…it’s a job she can’t refuse. Soon, Charlie and Remy are mired in the dark world of human trafficking, running from the mob―and fixed in the crosshairs of a killer.

DETROIT RULES is the first book in Linda Style’s explosive new STREET LAW series. A ticked-off mob boss, cops on the take, seduction, betrayal, and murder—it will take a lot more than money to fix this Motor City problem.


Review:
While it's been a few years since this came out, I just recently got my hands on it...how could a native Detroit pass up a local novel ;)  I do hope the fact that it is having recent promotion means there will be more books in the series.

I was disappointed with a few things throughout the book, mostly the misreferences to how a Detroit would speak certain things.  Overall though it was a well written story with a few surprises and twists that made it very enjoyable to read.  I hope to see more of Charlie as a kick-butt female lead in the future.

New Release ~ Kiss Me Back by Sidney Halston

The only thing hotter than the Miami sun is the sexual tension at Panic, the South Beach nightclub where love knows no boundaries.

Lola: I’ve seen the way women in line behind the velvet rope look at William Fox, like he’s an Armani-clad St. Peter at the pearly gates. Except Panic isn’t heaven, and this bouncer is no saint. He’s been tempting me to sin ever since I started working here, but Fox’s slick smile and bad-boy swagger tell me everything I need to know about him. Still, a girl has needs. And Fox looks ready to fulfill every last one—at least for a night. . . .

Fox: I’m not used to being ignored—especially by women—but Lola Daye is different. The pretty bartender with the red lips and icy blue eyes seems perfectly happy pretending I don’t exist. Too bad, because the more she ignores me, the harder I fall. So I’m floored when she answers my drunken, flirty text with a yes. Lola claims she only wants a fling, but after one kiss, our bodies are speaking the same language. And I’m ready to prove that what we have could be forever.

No cheating. No cliffhangers. And no dress code.

Review~

A fun story that moves quickly.  great characters with faults yet are easy to fall in love with. Fast paced and sexy are the best words to describe this one :)

As threatening messages from her bitter ex-husband leave her vulnerable, a new man in her life makes her feel protected.
