BLURB

Motorcycle deputy, Sadie Lazar is no damsel in distress. After all, the only man capable of getting a job done is a woMAN. She loves her life of independence. But when she is on scene at a mass car pile-up and finds a missing child, a pair of piercing blue eyes changes her world.

Widower, single-dad, Dr. Ryan Montgomery is in over his head. It’s been four years since his wife’s death and his former mother-in-law refuses to let him move on. When he finally starts dating, an accident makes him realize that dating a cop could put him right back in a world of grief and loss–a place he barely survived the first time around.

Now, two people who are used to saving others are forced to save themselves: one from a lonely future and one from a broken past.

REVIEW

A•R•C ~ I was given Book ‘Em Sadie by Danielle Norman as an Advanced Readers Copy (A•R•C). I voluntarily read and reviewed this book.

☆☆☆☆☆ 5 out of 5 Stars ☆☆☆☆☆

Book ‘Em Sadie is the first book in the Iron Badges Series, great characters, amazing story line and good plot twists.

Sadie lost her Mom when she was 4 years old and now as an adult helps children who are missing one or both parents, she mentors at Kidz Klub once or twice a week when her schedule allows. She meets Ryan who is an ER Doctor during an accident that happened right outside the hospital he works at. Attraction is strong at first site, and its been 4 years since Ryan’s wife was killed in a car accident took her from him and their daughter Callie. Callie is a strong independent little girl who wants to be GI Jane instead of a princess.

Again, great characters that make me laugh out loud just when I needed it the most.

I’ll definitely recommend this book.

Thank you and Happy Reading!

BLURB

Holland Kelly wasn’t a people person. Okay, that’s not true, she wasn’t one particular man person. That man? Her next-door neighbor Dick Brooks. Fine, his real name was Reid, but Dick sounded better.

Life would have been perfect if she never had to interact with him again.

Unfortunately, life wasn’t perfect.

Now she is stuck spending hours with the neighbor she has always hated while they work to save their homes.

Have his eyes always been that shade?

Has he always been so good looking?

And those lips…

REVIEW

Thank you Danielle Norman for a great book 3 in the Iron Horse Series.

Holland and Reid’s story has all the parts of a great story. Holland the baby of the sister’s and Reid the neighbor who Holland loves to hate on are perfect together, he loves her spunkiness and how down to earth she is, her horses always come first to Holland and Holland comes first to Reid then his ranch/stables.

Pick up your copy and let me know what you think.

Book Review – Almost: Iron Orchids Book #2 by Danielle Norman


BLURB:

For ten years Sophie has held on to her memories of Deputy Carter Lang and resigned herself to never seeing him again; after all she had disappeared without a trace.
But…
Some people are unforgettable.
Like, the first sheriff that pulled you over for speeding.
The first person to kiss you senseless on the hood of a car.
And, the first guy to make you…
But, when all of those things are from the same man; let’s just say unforgettable doesn’t even come close.

Sophie wonders if he ever thought of her and everything they ALMOST had?
Because now she is headed back to where it all began.

It’s only a matter of time before the truth comes out.
And Sophie learns that Carter definitely remembers and he’s prepared to put his money where his mouth is…

REVIEW:

Great second book in the series, love all the characters especially when they are together causing trouble in the best possible way.  Stella and Ringo are hilarious, I just love them!

Almost is about Sophia Kostas and Carter Lang who met when Sophie was speeding and Carter stopped her to give her a warning, she was only 17 to his 20.  He would pull her over to talk every time he saw her driving by, they kept it completely platonic since Sophie was not yet 18.  On her birthday that changed, he gave her a present and her first orgasm.  Sophie just found out she had breast cancer and without letting anyone, except her Mom and her best friend Leo know about her diagnosis, she headed to California to deal with it on her own.

Ten years later Sophie is moving back to Florida, back home to her family the Christakos’, Leo and her Mom.  Sophie is in remission but due to the treatments used she can no longer have children of her own.  She loves kids and to compensate for the loss of never having her own she writes children’s books and she is good at it.  Sophie and Leo hang out and she is introduced to Ariel who is engaged to her cousin Kayson, Stella and Piper.  She doesn’t know that Stella is Carter’s sister.  They are at Sixes a bar where the Iron Orchids hang out, an all-female riding club.  Carter walks in and 10 years seems like only a day for Sophie, but for Carter it’s all the pain and heartbreak of not knowing what happened it her and the longing for the love he holds for her.  He’s rude and says some mean things to her.

The Orange County Sherriff’s Department was having a gala to raise money for the spouses of fallen officers and Ariel convinced Sophie to be auctioned off for a dinner date with her.  Carter won the dinner date and they agreed to start fresh, leaving the hurt behind and get to know each other again.  Next think we know it’s been over a week and things are going great.

Then a drunken mistake Carter made six years ago in Las Vegas throws them apart, Carter met a woman named Ivey who was from Florida, they spent ten days drunk and having wild nights together, on the night before they were to fly back to Florida, they reenacted parts of the movie “The Hangover”, disrupted a wedding at a wedding chapel then they decided to have fun and get married they were really drunk.  They went their separate ways until Carter got a phone call to get to the hospital there was an emergency.  He and Sophie get to ORMC and they find out that Carter’s wife died after giving birth to a premature baby after she and her daughters were brought in from a car accident.  Before they can find out anything Sophie leaves after hearing that Carter was married.  Stella is there with him when he meets his daughter Harlow, who looks like a mini Stella and her sister Gianna.  Carter met with Tristan in the pediatric ICU to see the baby that was just born, who he names Avril Stella.  Even though he’s not Gianna and Avril’s biological father he is listed on their birth certificates and Ivey just knowing Carter for 10 days knew that he was a protector at heart and would take care of all her girls if anything happened to her.

If Sophie want’s Carter he is now a package deal, him and the three girls and of course he named the baby the name that she said she would have given her own daughter if she was able to have children.  With the help of friends and the large Greek Christakos family Carter and Sophie get their own happily ever after Greek style of course.

Next up for me is Impact, Damon and Katy’s story and of course we get to see little Bee, who is Katy’s daughter again, remember her from her visits with Carter watching the clouds at the rec center.  Bee becomes best friends with Harlow and Gianna.  Can’t wait.

Book Review – Enough: Iron Orchids Book #1 by Danielle Norman

BLURB:

For Ariel Beaumont there were some things in life that were inevitable. Like death, taxes, and lying, cheating men. 
She believed that one woman would never be enough for one man.
So she traded in men for a Harley. 
She soon discovered that nothing beats that kind of power between your legs.
But then she blinked and he was there. 
~
For Kayson Christakos some things in life had become inevitable; like death, taxes, and badge bunnies willing to hop into his bed.
The only problem was he was a one-woman kind of man; he just hadn’t found that one woman…yet.
As a deputy, in his line of work, he’d seen it all.
Nothing much bothers him until he finds a woman’s wrecked body.
When she blinked her gorgeous green eyes his world was changed.
Forever won’t come close to giving him enough of her.

REVIEW:

This is the first book I read of Danielle’s and I was hoping for an entertaining read and that’s exactly what I got plus I got more!  Great characters, funny twists, love the Greek family unit and how close everyone is. 

At first sight Kayson Christakos is head over heals, for Ariel Beaumont after rescuing her from an attack, he’s an off-duty motorcycle deputy with the Orange County sheriff’s department, picking up a Mother’s Day gift for his mom, when he was walking out of the mall her heard someone screaming for help and her finds Ariel and chases away her attackers.

Ariel loves riding her Harley Davidson motorcycle and was practicing riding it around the parking lot at the Mall of Millenia in Orlando, when two guys come right after her, they scare her and end up hurting her, she ends up in the ORMC getting stitches in her lip and forehead.  She can’t figure out who would want to hurt her.  Ariel’s friend Stella is a nurse at the ORMC and happens to be her nurse.  She met Stella at the Harley Davidson Dealer they are both taking the training to get their motorcycle licenses.

Three months after the attack Stella takes Ariel to an event put on by the Orange County Sheriff’s Department, she meets Leo a mechanic at the Harley place and Piper who is a trying to become a motorcycle deputy.  They are talking Harley’s and checking out all the men, and discussing starting an all-women’s riding club.  Kayson, and his brother’s Damon, Ian, Tristan and Carter who is Stella’s brother and a motorcycle deputy with Kayson are also at the event and after three months Kayson was still attracted to Ariel, he hopes she’s single now, because when he went to visit her three months ago it looked like she was with someone as a man was hugging her and calling her sweetheart when he was going to walk into her hospital room, he stopped and left not wanting to cause any problems. Ariel finally meets Kayson at the event, she was disappointed when he did not come by the hospital to see her like his doctor brother Tristan said he would, but now here he is and he’s HOT!

Kayson tries to take Ariel out for a date but when they are sitting at the restaurant, he gets a call that he must into work.  He doesn’t want to leave but its work and being a deputy is important.  Ariel ends up at Sixes with Stella and Leo.  Doing shots and bad-mouthing men, Piper shows up and tells her that Kayson really was at the sheriff’s office, but with the alcohol the damage has been done to her ego and heart. After several shots they come up with the name of their riding group “Iron Orchids”.  Kayson shows up at the bar and end up driving her home and taking care of her drunkenness.  Kayson wins her back with this thoughtfulness, kindness and him being sex on a stick doesn’t hurt.

With some trouble that’s following Ariel and the crazy things Ariel, Stella, Leo, Piper got into this is a page-turning.  Kayson is amazing and so sexy with his need to protect and love Ariel

I absolutely L-O-V-E and I do mean I love Ringo and the entire Banana’s drag show is hilarious, I absolutely love all the characters in this book, minus the badge bunnies but not everyone is good or nice all the time.

Thank you, Danielle, for brings the Iron Orchids to life and doing it in such an amazing way.  Looking forward to Almost: Iron Orchid’s Book #2, Carter and Sophie’s story.  Sophie is Kayson’s cousin so look forward to more Christakos’ in “Almost”.

EXCERPT

Chapter One
Stopping in front of the large faux-wood door that read: Staff Administration, I took a deep breath and then knocked.
“Come in.”
One step into the room, I froze because sitting in one of the chairs was Dr. McCreamy, otherwise known as Tristan Christakos, the most gorgeous man to ever walk the planet, the bane of my existence, and the best one-night stand ever. Yeah, he was a mistake that I’d happily make or should I say do again.
Fuck.
Tristan stood when I entered, as his damn well-bred, gentlemanly self had to do, which only made me want to jump him even more. To make matters worse, he was wearing a devilishly wicked smirk on his lips that made all of my parts take notice.
“Stella, have a seat.” Louise Cameron’s back was ramrod straight as she sat in her high-back, black pleather chair. If I were to base my visit on her posture alone, I would say I was about to be canned.
The hospital had a no fraternization policy. Although, they had allowed married couples to work for the same hospital in the past, this all had to be reported to admin, and they ultimately decided whether or not to keep both employees. In situations like this when it was between a doctor and a nurse, they usually ended up keeping the doctor since nurses were a dime a dozen. Was that fair? Hell no.
I could already feel the ire in me building and was ready to fight or at least not go down without a fight.
I moved to the chair opposite Tristan and plopped down. Okay, I knew that I possessed little to no grace when I did that, but whatever, I was pissed. Turning to face him, the heat in me rose as he continued to smirk. The asshole smirked. He knew we were busted and he was safe. I’d never imagined him being so cruel.
But fuck a duck if the man still wasn’t gorgeous. His eyes were the color of fresh coffee, untainted by cream. And his skin . . . well, that was different a story, it was cream with a dash of coffee.
“Stella,” Mrs. Cameron began, “as you are aware, the hospital is building a genetics study center in the hopes of being able to more easily find donor matches. Every year, it seems that there is a bigger strain on our match and donor resources. Not only from the state of perpetual emergency that we seem to be in but also our advance technology in ultrasound imaging. As you know, we are able to detect some birth defects as early as the first heart beat. We feel that it is important as a level one trauma unit and a level-three neonatal ward that we have this resource available to us twenty-four seven. We’ve been sending doctors to different training sessions so they are up to date with all the current technologies and tests.”
Tristan cleared his throat, and I turned my attention back to him. “You may not be aware of this, Stella, but my interest has always been with trying to negate the rise in genetic birth defects that we see in our high-risk unit. But after the strain on our resource bank for tissue, marrow, and blood, my research was halted. This new genetic center will help me continue my focus.”
I listened to Tristan’s explanation, but none of this made sense. Sure, his reasoning made sense, but where I was lost was what in the hell any of this had to do with me. My face must have shown my confusion because Mrs. Cameron finally slid a file folder to me.
“There is a pediatric genetics conference in Las Vegas next week, and we’ve been on the waiting list. Yesterday, we found out that there had been a cancellation and that Dr. Christakos has been invited. He has been asked to bring a nurse or assistant, and he tells me that the two of you worked well together when you were over in the Women and Children Center.”
I nodded because we had worked well together, and she smiled.
“He’d like you to accompany him to the conference and act as his assistant moving forward as we get the genetic center established.”
Slow down there, Polyester, he what? He wanted me to work with him?
He wanted me to go to Vegas?
Me. Tristan. In Vegas? Fuck yeah, where did I sign? Shaking my head, I turned to looked at the olive skin Adonis with chocolate eyes that made me want to get on my knees and say ten hail Mary’s and praise sweet baby Jesus.
Shit. I was staring. Smacking my lips, I cleared my throat and then tried again. “Sure, tell me whatever you need,” I said and watched as the corners of Tristan’s lips pulled into an almost challenging smile. I had no clue what he was challenging me to, but he knew better than to yank my chain because, let’s face it, I yanked harder, and of the two of us, he was the only one with something to grab ahold of and tug.
