Review of Love You Madly by Ashlee Mallory

LoveYouMadly

 

 

Meredith Sanders, a homecoming queen, made geeky Travis Brennan’s life miserable  in high school. Now she has a few failed marriages behind her and a missing teen aged step-daughter. It seems the only man that can help her investigate this mysterious disappearance is Travis, now a former, hardened SEAL that has a serious dislike in her.

This was a more serious romance full of suspense. For me personally, there were too much focus on the high school drama and subsequent remaining grudges of historic events. And the other adults’ (now all of them involved in the school in some way or the other) reactions and hung-ups were a bit childish at times. It can be irritating at first, but as the story evolved and the danger increases I was pulled into the mysteriousness of Meredith’s step-daughter’s disappearance and the shady inner-workings of the abductors. The last part of the book was full of action, dangerous villains, suspense and traumatic events, which kept me turning pages.

Review of Her Accidental Husband (Sorensen Family) by Ashlee Mallory

HerAccidentalHusband

 

This is the second book in the Sorensen Family series but can also be read as a standalone. Expect minor spoilers for book 1 in the series.

 

The trip to Puerto Vallarta for Payton Vaughn’s best friend’s wedding was a welcome escape, especially from her overbearing mother and her unfaithful fiancé. Unfortunately Payton’s flight has been cancelled and she has to share a tiny car with the irritating, but gorgeous best man. Even though Payton is the future daughter-in-law of a new big client, Cruz Sorensen doesn’t look forward to babysit Payton whom he sees as a spoiled socialite. But after a night of too much tequila they wake up not only to a mega hangover but as husband and wife.

This was a sweet, fun and refreshing romance. The way the story unfolded was interesting and captivating. The main characters were strong and totally opposites of each other, but have great chemistry. The secondary characters were believable and the interactions amusing. The unintended union has it’s own complications, not to mention the attraction for each other, their separate future plans and interference from family.

I was entertained from begging to end. And yes, I recommend this book too.

Review of Her Backup Boyfriend (Sorensen Family) by Ashlee Mallory

HerBackupBoyfriend

 

Kate Matthews is a lawyer with a career plan. To come in line for a promotion at work she needs to proof that she has a balanced lifestyle which is not just centered around work; and to show that she’s over her ex, who gets engaged, she fabricated a new boyfriend. The charming Dominic Sorensen offered to renovate her home on top of being the stand-in boyfriend in exchange for pro bono work in a divorce case. But they didn’t expect the sizzling sexual chemistry …

It was a delightful romance with believable characters, which I really enjoyed. The story had a great build up with witty interactions and entertaining story line. Both Kate and Dominique have issues to work through and to discover what really matters to them. The secondary characters were likable, enhanced the story and created the necessary tension in playing out the little white lie. The sexual chemistry created anticipation without going into too much graphical sexual scenes.

I definitely recommend it.
