ARC Review --> The Millionaire's Deception by Wendy Byrne

The Millionaire's DeceptionThe Millionaire's Deception by Wendy Byrne
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

 He always wins. And she never gives up...

Rafe McCall has a reputation as the Closer. He rakes in serious cash to make deals happen. Convincing small restaurant owner Frankie Ritacco to sell his business for property development should have been a piece of cake. So Rafe blows into Wilcox, Iowa on his Harley, convinced the deal is all but done. But he is so, so wrong...

For starters, “Frankie” is a woman. A stunning, stubborn woman who wants to preserve her idyllic small town. The Crossroads Café is a family legacy Frankie plans to leave to her future children, and there is no way she's selling—even to a sexy millionaire who makes her heart race. But her café is in serious trouble, and Rafe must decide if he can close the deal...or if he's found the deal breaker of a lifetime.

This was a cute quick enjoyable read. I didn’t like it as much as I’d hoped, but I didn’t hate it either.
I love books where the hero/heroine works in a restaurant/Café or just anything that has to do with food. I have always enjoyed them. With Frankie own her own restaurant I figured I’d love this book. That didn’t happen, but I did really enjoy it.
I liked Frankie, I thought she was a great Heroine. She could stand up for herself and she did. But, she was also a sweetheart. She liked to help people and she did.
Rafe, I liked as well. He was kind of cocky and an asshole at first, but he turned out to be an okay guy.
I thought the book was kind of slow at times. It is more of just a cute quick read, or so that’s what it was too me.
Overall thoughts…
I liked it. I thought it was cute and a quick read. I liked the plot and the characters. I will read more by this author.

ARC Review --> Broken Honor (HORNET, #3) by Tonya Burrows

Broken Honor by Tonya Burrows
Series: HORNET, #3
Page Count: ~350
Publisher --> Entangled:Select


Ice-cold and unbreakable, Travis Quinn is the HORNET team's hard-ass. No weaknesses. Except, of course, for the accident that not only destroyed his career as a Navy SEAL, but left terrifying blanks in his memory. But Travis remembers everything about Mara Escareno--the curve of her lips, the feel of her body...and how he walked out on her suddenly six weeks ago.

Mara could never resist the dangerously sexy Travis, which is probably how she ended up pregnant and disowned by her family. But before Travis can fully process the news, Mara is kidnapped by his enemies and plunged into the violent, merciless world of human trafficking. They want Travis--and the information locked within his damaged memory--no matter the cost. And now Travis's enemies have discovered his only weakness...Mara.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars



I love this series. It’s by far my favorite romantic suspense/Military series ever.
I have loved every single book in this series so far and Broken Honor is no exception.
Mara, who is our main character, was a strong heroine, who at times had her moments, but I think considering what she went though she was a great MC. I loved her with Quinn.
I loved Quinn (I don’t like calling him Travis because I have a brother names Travis, so it’s kind of weird.). I have loved him since Gabe’s book. The guy with health issue or really any kind of issues is the one I usually is my favorite. But with this series, I noticed that I like all of the guys. It’s hard not to. I love everything about Quinn. I really felt for him after learning everything that’s happened to him.
Now, the direction Tonya went with the plot I was kind of afraid because well with Human Trafficking you never know what will happen. But, its safe to say that I absolute loved this book (including the Plot).
I loved that we got to see the team. I’m realllllly excited for the next book, which is Jesse’s.
Overall thoughts…
Overall, I thought the book was great. I love every book Tonya writes. I also love how her books have the right amount of romance, suspense and action to each of her books.
Recommend: Heck Yeah. One of my favorite series ever.

Other Books in the series...


It’s a good thing Gabe Bristow lives and breathes the Navy SEAL credo, “the only easy day was yesterday,” because today, his life is unrecognizable. When his prestigious career comes to a crashing halt, he’s left with a bum leg and few prospects for employment that don’t include a desk.

That is, until he’s offered the chance to command a private hostage rescue team and free a wealthy American businessman from Colombian paramilitary rebels. It seems like a good deal—until he meets his new team: a drunk Cajun linguist, a boy-genius CIA threat analyst, an FBI negotiator with mob ties, a cowboy medic, and an EOD expert as volatile as the bombs he defuses. Oh, and who could forget the sexy, frustratingly impulsive Audrey Van Amee? She’s determined to help rescue her brother—or drive Gabe crazy. Whichever comes first.

As the death toll rises, Gabe’s team of delinquents must figure out how to work together long enough to save the day. Or, at least, not get themselves killed. Because Gabe’s finally found something worth living for, and God help him if he can’t bring her brother back alive.

Former Marine sniper Seth Harlan is determined to prove that he can still do his job despite his ongoing battle with PTSD. When an old friend contacts HORNET to rescue a black ops soldier, Seth's stability is strained. He knows all too well what it's like to rot inside an enemy camp, praying for rescue and waiting for death. And he's not about to leave a man behind.

Photojournalist Phoebe Leighton just stumbled into the middle of an arms deal. Teaming up with a ragtag team of mercenaries is the last thing she wants to do--especially when she realizes Seth Harlan is assigned to the mission. He may ignite a passion in her she thought long dead, but Phoebe's hiding a secret that could destroy him.

With a bomb in the mix, HORNET's mission is suddenly about a lot more than an abandoned soldier. Racing against the clock, Seth, Phoebe, and the rest of the team struggle to stop a ruthless warlord bent on power, revenge...and death.
