#1 New York Times bestselling author Robyn Carr returns to Thunder Point with an uplifting story about overcoming loss and finding unexpected love
Scott Grant has a bustling family practice in the small Oregon community of Thunder Point. The town and its people have embraced the widowed doctor and father of two, his children are thriving, and Scott knows it's time to move on from his loss. But as the town's only doctor, the dating scene is awkward. That is, until a stunning physician's assistant applies for a job at his clinic.
Peyton Lacoumette considers herself entirely out of the dating scene. She's already been burned by a man with kids, and she's come to Thunder Point determined not to repeat past mistakes. When Scott offers her a job, at a much lower salary than she's used to, Peyton is surprisingly eager to accept…at least for now. She's willing to stay for a three-month trial period while she explores other options.
Scott and Peyton know the arrangement is temporary—it isn't enough time to build a real relationship, never mind anything with lasting commitment. But love can blossom faster than you think when the timing is right, and this short visit just might hold the promise of forever.

The first few chapters I was a little overwhelmed with all the characters and trying to keep the connections separate. I did enjoy as the story progressed that the author reminded us of the other couples backstories so good that I remembered I've read one of the early book in the series more than a year ago. It would have been nice to know how the teenager managed. I liked that last little twist that created a little doubt even though I was still 95% sure who she was going to end up with. I enjoyed the plot, even know there was a lot of back story on the characters I wouldn't cry if someone died, there was just so many people it spread my emotions thin.
Powerhouse author Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum novels are “laugh-out-loud funny” (St. Louis Post-Dispatch), “brilliantly evocative” (The Denver Post), and “making trouble and winning hearts” (USA Today).
Stephanie Plum has her sights set on catching a notorious mob boss. If she doesn’t take him down, he may take her out.
New Jersey bounty hunter Stephanie Plum knows better than to mess with family. But when powerful mobster Salvatore “Uncle Sunny” Sunucchi goes on the lam in Trenton, it’s up to Stephanie to find him. Uncle Sunny is charged with murder for running over a guy (twice), and nobody wants to turn him in—not his poker buddies, not his bimbo girlfriend, not his two right-hand men, Shorty and Moe. Even Trenton’s hottest cop, Joe Morelli, has skin in the game, because—just Stephanie’s luck—the godfather is hisactual godfather. And while Morelli understands that the law is the law, his old-world grandmother, Bella, is doing everything she can to throw Stephanie off the trail.
It’s not just Uncle Sunny giving Stephanie the run-around. Security specialist Ranger needs her help to solve the bizarre death of a top client’s mother, a woman who happened to play bingo with Stephanie’s Grandma Mazur. Before Stephanie knows it, she’s working side by side with Ranger and Grandma at the senior center, trying to catch a killer on the loose—and the bingo balls are not rolling in their favor.
With bullet holes in her car, henchmen on her tail, and a giraffe named Kevin running wild in the streets of Trenton, Stephanie will have to up her game for the ultimate takedown.

This is my first book from this author and I should have picked better. I've heard such good things about her and I picked a mediocre one to get my first impression. I was looking for a humorous book and was recommended to this title. I wouldn't call it humorous but it was a light read. It had a good background story but I don't know if I ever smiled while listening to it. Some of the plot was a little too unbelievable to be funny. When the giraffe started into the story I got more confused that amused. It ending wrapped up rather quickly and not much was brought to a close except she went back to her old job. Throughout the story I wasn't sure about her relationship with the two men and even some of the other characters like the grandma the gave "the eye". Did her boyfriend really let her gallivant around getting hung off a bridge and get shot at? None of the characters had any depth which was disappointing but this is my first humor and maybe this is how they keep it light or I just have a shitty sense of humor. I gave this book three stars.

It's a short story, it took less than two hours to read. It's was a fantasy book. Things happened fast but it didn't feel rushed, she built a good story line for such a short book and damn was it a bit erotic. It wasn't overdone, if it was longer I could see it getting old hearing about sex after sex escapade, but it was short and sultry just like this review. Good story line build up that also had some saucy scenes. I gave it four stars.

It was a beautiful love story but there were some aspects that weren't needed and might have brought it down a little in my opinion. First I'm still in shock that her first tattoo ever was across her knuckles! Who gets a nickname tattooed across their fingers, especially if you were skeptical at first at barely got one in the first place. That just blew me away. Second T.J. could have just been left out. He just confused me and made it unnecessarily complicated and then they explained him finally in three words that didn't even explain him, it just left me kind of pisssy that that was how they ended it. I enjoyed the two main characters and it went into a pretty good amount of depth into their families and past, but didn't seem to explain his accident in the least. At the end he was still fighting to drive and had anxiety about the past that still wasn't addressed and I'm not quite sure why they added that scene in the last chapter. That was more excitement in the last two chapters than the entire book. I loved the love story and friendships throughout, but some of the background or lack there of took away from it being an epic book in my eyes. I gave it four stars and wished they'd excluded certain parts that brought a perfect book down a notch.

Jet can’t resist the Southern Belle with mile-long legs in cowboy boots who defies his every expectation. Yet the closer he feels to Ayden, the less he seems to know her. While he’s tempted to get under her skin and undo her in every way, he knows firsthand what happens to two people with very different ideas about relationships.
Will the blaze burn into an enduring love. . . or will it consume their dreams and turn them to ashes?

I'm always reading at least two books at a time and I've never had a problem with it till now. The two books I read both had a tattooed bad boy and the complicated girl with a secret past. They were way to similar to keep apart so I'd have to refresh characters and story lines. I guess I should read the summary before diving it, but I feel like that's a spoiler because I immediately try and guess the ending.
I didn't read the first in the series, so some things were a little confusing to begin with. If I would have read Rule first I would have enjoyed all the references and continued background story line of the first couple. I didn't like the names of this series to start. Jet, Rule, Ayden, and her brothers name. The author left Ayden's background story line a little vague but I guess that's for us to fill in with our imagination. I felt like she should have slowly been releasing facts about her past and not waited so far into the story because it was slow in the beginning. I didn't like Ayden's brother or mother, but I can't tell you much more than that since the background was a little vague. The mystery caller twist I think was thrown into the story a little too late and complicated the ending and left the ending a little rocky with unanswered questions. It was decent, slow at some parts, but not a bad book. I gave it three stars.
I've spent my entire life under my father’s thumb, but now I'm finally free to make my own choices. When my roommate dragged me to my first college party, I met Finn Coram and my life turned inside out. He knows how to break the rules and is everything I never knew I wanted. A Marine by day and surfer by night, he pushes me away even as our attraction brings us closer. Now I am finally free to do whatever I want. I know what I want. I choose Finn.
Trying to play by the rules...
I always follow orders. My job, my life, depends on it. I thought this job would be easy, all the rules were made crystal clear, but when I met Carrie Wallington, everything got muddy. She's a rule I know I shouldn't break, but damn if I don’t inch closer to the breaking point each time I see her. I’m ready to step out of line. And even worse? I’m living a lie. They say the truth will set you free, but in my case…
The truth will cost me everything.

It was bland. They didn't go into a lot of character depth so the plot was mediocre with the surface level attachment you created with the characters. It was mentioned this same scenario had happened to her previously but then she says constantly that he is her first love. Why is he so protective? Where does she live? Why'd she go abroad? I know what seems like nothing about the main male character. His mother was touched upon, but how did his family go from California surfers to a security family? Was his dad a marine as well? What role did his dad have to be involved so much that she remembers him and has a fondness for him? Also the ending is the last impression and this one left me sour. We can all assume what the phone call was about which makes for one crappy ending. Something suspenseful or leaving it more open to imagination would have been better. I gave it three stars.
I graduated college in 2012 and have been traveling as an energy consultant since. Work keeps me busy, but with no more evenings filled with studying I figured I needed a hobby...and the reading began.
