When a King loves He loves hard
CADE I’ve loved her since we were five years old. We grew up side by side. Two kids tied together by the Kings of Mayhem Motorcycle Club. But I broke us. I broke her. So, she fled. Now she’s back after twelve long years. And I’m going to show her all the reasons why we should be together and make her forget all the reasons why we shouldn’t.
INDY I’m back in town but only because I have to be. I’m here to help my mom bury my father. And the sooner we get it done, the better. Because I want to see Cade as much as I want a hole in the head. He broke me once—no, he broke my everything— and I’ll be damned if I’ll let him do it again. Get in and get out. That is the plan. But you know what they say about best-laid plans.

If you liked the Sons of Anarchy show on TV then this is a book for you to try. Cade and Indys story is one that started when they were very young, but then through events, misunderstandings and help from others breaks off. But when you are meant to be together things tend to work out that way in the end. As adults now their story is one of finding trust in one another after years of mistrust, and also trying to figure out what is happening with their motorcycle family. Because either they are having a run of bad luck or someone is out to get them.

This was another quick ready that’s perfect for the beach or pool this summer. The characters are realistic and likable, you just want them to have that happy ending.

There’s one creed all Cavensham men subscribe to: they fall in love completely and decidedly. But what happens when the woman you fall in love with swears she'll only marry you as a last resort? Rogue Most Wanted is the next book in the sparkling, romantic Cavensham Heiress series by Janna MacGregor.
SHE NEEDS TO MARRY SOMEONE
Lady Theodora Worth needs to marry fast in order to keep her estate. It’s been her heart and home for years, and she’ll not lose it to anyone. There’s just one problem—as a woman who was raised in isolation by her grandfather, she’s completely incapable of pouring a cup of tea, never mind wooing a man. She’ll need a little matchmaking help from her sprightly next-door neighbor in order to find a convenient husband…
IT’S JUST NOT GOING TO BE HIM
Lord William Cavensham’s heart was broken years ago, and since that day he vowed to never love again. But his spirited Great Aunt Stella is determined he’ll marry or not inherit a single penny from her. And she’s got just the woman in mind—her beautiful and completely hapless next-door neighbor, Thea…
Thea and Will agree there’s no sense in marrying each other. Will wholeheartedly believes he’s incapable of love, and Thea refuses to marry the first man she’s practically met. But Will may be the rogue Thea wants the most after all…

Two people thrown together by a “grandmotherly” figure who thinks that she knows what is best for them. Thea and Will are thrown together to help Thea save a title and land that are hers, but because she is a woman someone is contesting it. So Thea needs to wed a man who will help her gain the title and the Ladykyrk estate. Thea knows she needs to wed, though she doesn’t really want to and is not planning on wedding the first available man who suits her needs. Will who was jilted when he was younger is very gun shy about getting married so has no interest in being the one for Thea. Though after their first meeting he is more than willing to help her find a husband.

This story of how they come to realize that they are in fact perfect for each other, though they both fight it. They need to learn to trust themselves and one another, to have a chance with one another. The story is one that will have you cheering for them, and hoping that they can both over come their troubles and have that happy ending.

This was a sweet and heartfelt read, that will really pull at your heart strings. The characters of both Maddox and Jada are just ones that you can’t help but fall in love with. They both have gone through so much in their lives, and most of it is beyond their control and not really their faults. This is the kind of story that you really hope happens in real life, where 2 people who obviously are meant to be together actually get that 2nd chance. If they are strong enough to reach out for it and hold on for dear life. A quick read that will suck you in and not let you go until the end this story is a perfect one for by the pool or at the beach.

Andrew, Abraham, and Austin Petersheim's family business has earned them the nickname The Peanut Butter Brothers. But if their matchmaking younger siblings have their way, all three may soon bear another title: husband . . .

Handsome, hardworking, and godly, Andrew Petersheim has always been sure of his place in his Wisconsin Amish community. He'll be a welcome catch for the local girl who finally captures his heart. Mary Coblenz certainly isn't that girl. Two years after "jumping the fence" for the Englischer world, she's returned, unmarried and pregnant. Yet instead of hiding in shame as others in the community expect, she's working at the Honeybee Farm, ignoring the gossips--and winning over Andrew's eight-year-old twin brothers . . .
For all Andrew's certainty about right and wrong, it seems he has a lot to learn from Mary's courage, grace, and resilience. She's changing his notions about forgiveness and love, but will she in turn accept the challenge of starting over and choose to stay--with him?
Praise for Jennifer Beckstrand and her Matchmakers of Huckleberry Hill series "Full of kind, sincere characters struggling with the best ways to stay true to themselves and their beliefs." --Publishers Weekly
"A heart-warming story of faith, hope, and second chances. The story will captivate readers who love the Amish culture and enjoy an endearing romance." --Amy Clipston, bestselling author of A Place at Our Table

This is a good fun read, set in the Amish culture which is not something I have read a lot of lately. The characters, especially the younger twin brothers of Andrew are definitely a comedic factor. Andrew and Marys story is one about learning to forgive and to give second chances. That we are all Children of God and imperfect, but that doesn’t mean we are not worthy of love. Which I think is a really great message and one people need to take to heart, we all make mistakes after all because we are human.
