Lead Security (Rogue Security and Investigation #3) by Evan Grace [arc review]

This series was my very first read by Evan Grace and I am so so very glad that I joined the band wagon. This romance had everything. A little suspense, a little drama, it was intense, had plenty of chemistry and swoon worthy moments. All the things you want on a good book!



Lead Security, Evan Grace
The blurb:
I’ve spent the last several years building my company, having zero time for a social life. I preferred it that way. After the mess my ex-wife left me with, I have no interest in anything remotely close to a relationship.

Until I meet my daughter’s new next-door neighbor.

Harley is kind, beautiful, and she’s also an erotic romance writer. To any man, she’s the perfect package. To a gun-shy man like me, she’s a one-way road to disaster.

Unfortunately for me, my daughter’s newfound friendship with Harley means I get to see more of her.

And the more I see her, the more I want her.

But my instincts are telling me there’s a danger lurking around her, following her, waiting for the right moment to strike. And the closer I get, the more I realize there’s only one way I’ll allow any threat to get near her…

and that’s over my dead body.



4.5 Stars
This was an unexpectedly nice read. I say unexpectedly because I often cringe at books with older characters (I know single dads are a very popular romance trope, it just isn't one I often love). There was no need for to worry. Harley and Jack are pure perfection! 

Harley is attracted to Jack the moment she sees him. But he is rude and unwelcoming towards her from day one and things don't get any better. 
Jack feels he is told old to start over and is very damaged from his past. His ex wife did a number on him and he is not interested on having a serious relationship ever again. He really should leave Harley alone regardless of how she makes him feel. That works for a time (unsurprisingly long time actually) but eventually their feelings get too strong to ignore. 

I found their story to be one of second chances. Poor Harley feels burnt from the past, everyone she loves leaves. And poor Jack is scared of going down the same road that hurt him so bad again. When these two finally give in sparks fly and a beautiful romance story unfolds. 

So if this sounds interesting to you go read!
I for one read this series completely out of order. As in 3-1-2 🤣
They are fabulous stand alones so that was never a problem. Go GO GO

The Last Tiara by M.J. Rose

The Last Tiara  by M.J. Rose is inspired by a real missing Russian Crown Jewel. She explains in an article to The Adventurine  how she stumbled upon an NPR article about the disappearance of missing Russian Crown Jewels that to date, have not been found. Captivated by it and how such amazing items could simply disappear she decides her new novel will tell the story of the lost tiara.  It is apparent throughout the book that M.J. Rose researched well the Romanov Jewels, the Russian Evolution, and especially the impact it had on the Russian people. Although she never goes into details, the poverty and difficulties the people experienced at the time are carefully and respectfully mentioned.  The book is told from two different perspectives, that of mother and daughter. The alternating chapters reveal Sofiya's life in Russia from 1915 through 1922, and Isobelle's in 1948 Manhattan, US. First we have Isabelle, an young architect in post World War II Manhattan . While renovating her

How to Catch a Duke (Rogues to Riches #6) by Grace Burrowes [ALC review]

How to Catch a Duke, Grace Burrowes I've been waiting for this book for sometime. Lord Stephen Wentworth's past was mentioned many times in previous books and I was hoping Grace Burrowes would give him a happy ending. After everything he went through in life he most certainly deserved it.  As book opening goes, the one to How to Catch a Duke  had me dying of curiosity instantly: "I have come to ask you to kill me, my lord." Miss Abigail Abbott is no damsel in distress, but she also knows when she can't handle an enemy on her own. She believes the only solution to her problems is to disappear and she trusts Lord Stephen will help her. Lord Stephen is a juxtaposition... charming and brutish, sad and happy, caring and ruthless, the most intelligent and most clueless... Although you don't have to have read any of the previous books in this series to enjoy this one, I would advise you to do so. I think Stephen's personality traits and past will be more touching
