The final frontier. The end of dating. The number one cause of divorce.

I bet you every man who is about to take the plunge experiences a wide range of feelings. As a guy, whose wedding day is only seven days away, I know this.

Anxiety—Nerves are kicking in. Yeah, even confident, cocky guys like me are bound to face nuptial stage fright.

Let’s face it, forever is kind of a long time, right?

Excitement—Coriander and I are going to make it official. I’m marrying my best friend, the one I laugh with, live for, dream with.

Nothing can top this moment.

That is until I got the biggest surprise of my life…

***While this book can be read as a standalone, it is highly recommended to read The Boy Friend first to avoid any spoilers.***

As the sole witness to her bosses murder, Briah Spencer's life would never be the same again. Once she had identified the killer as none other than Denver's biggest crime boss, David Slater, her head had a price on it.

Aiden Baldwin was one of Denver's finest homicide detectives. His job was to keep Briah safe long enough to testify. His heart had plans of its own. Soon her life and his found that rock and hard place where decisions were impossible and devastating. Briah is sent into witness protection and Aiden to the bottom of a whisky bottle.

Briah felt safe in the mountains. They were her refuge from life's realities. She could lose her cares on the slopes with the wind blowing them past her. Will the mountains hide her from the two men that want her? Can the snow help her to forget Aiden? Is there a future in her new life?

Review: The Quiet Game

The Quiet Game The Quiet Game by Greg Iles
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Quiet Game By: Greg Iles

I was recommended this book by a customer, who walked in on a rainy Monday wondering what movies we were going to have that following weekend.
I honestly do not know how we started talking about this book, but she got me hooked as she was talking about it. I remember telling her to write the name down for me, to my surprise she walks out to her car and lends it to me. Who does that? Well, I'm glad she did.
This book had me hooked, at moments I was anxious wanting to read faster just to figure out what was going to happen.
Penn Cage is amazing, has a great family and he works so hard to help others and is respectful and does things by the book, (most of the time).
We also meet Caitlin who is a fierce lady, also very determined and someone who is willing to take a risk even if it means she can sabotage her career or worst her father's print.
But she does what she thinks is right. Her and Penn are great together, their determination to follow the law and to do what no other person was brave enough to do is exhilarating.
I am excited to start reading Natchez Burning.
I rate The Quiet Game 5 stars.

A Scottish Wedding by Hilaria Alexander

Ladies, Hugh MacLeod is off the market! We caught up with the sexy hunk from Abarath and his fiancée, makeup artist Sam Farouk at an event in Edinburgh. The pair met last year while working together on season one. The Scottish actor looked handsome in a tailored dark grey suit, while the raven-haired beauty at his side turned heads in a golden lamé gown which channeled the iconic Marilyn Monroe dress of the same color. Ms. Farouk played coy when asked about the engagement, only revealing that the ring belonged to Hugh’s grandmother. With a dreamy look to her groom-to-be, Ms. Farouk confessed his proposal was “fairytale worthy." MacLeod charmingly deflected each one of our questions about season two of Abarath, saying he would get in trouble if he told us anything. When we asked if a date had been set yet, the engaged couple looked at each other for a brief second. Soon, they replied in unison in a way that turned us into mush. Ms. Farouk added that it will all depend on Hugh’s schedule and his commitment with the show. We wish the very best to the groom and the bride-to-be and we hope to bring you more news about their upcoming nuptials!

For Forester by J. Nathan

I'm Alabama's star wide receiver. I've got mad skills on and off the field, and it's no secret I'm heading into the draft after the upcoming season. But I'm home for the summer to make some cash before my senior year. Being back under my parents' roof isn't the ideal situation, but the moment I see Marin, the star of my adolescent fantasies, I know it's about to get interesting. She may not have noticed me back then, but I've got a feeling it's just a matter of time before she lets me turn those fantasies into reality.
The last time I saw Trace Forester he was just a kid tearing up the neighborhood on his skateboard. That was when I was foolish enough to think I had the perfect husband and the perfect life. But now my life is in shambles and Trace is back, all grown up, hot as hell, and exuding major confidence. It would be so easy to fall for his good looks and undeniable charm. So easy to let him into my life. Too bad I learned the hard way that nothing worth having ever comes easy.
