My Review

When hockey phenom Billie-Jo Barker returns home and decides to play in the local Friday night hockey league, all hell breaks loose. Not because Billie’s talent is in question, but because Billie is a woman. And though these are modern times, some of the local guys still have a problem letting a girl into their ‘men’s club.’

Soon, Billie is at the center of a small town battle of the sexes, with everyone choosing sides. Her sisters. The townsfolk. Her friends. And yet, the only person whose opinion she cares about doesn’t seem to care much at all. Logan Forest, the man who broke her heart when she was eighteen and the man she now shares the bench with every Friday night.

She’s got a lot to prove and though Billie Jo Barker scores on the ice, will this girl ever score with the man of her dreams?

Bad girl,Georgia King, is trying to survive after spiraling into a darkness that nearly took her life. With her college dreams on hold she’s trying to get healthy–trying to still the craziness inside her. She has no room for someone like Ben Lancaster and if he was smart he’d stay away. Because everyone knows Georgia is bad news–she ruins people–and if Ben isn’t careful, he’ll be next in line.

Ben Lancaster is a young, hot shot hockey player on his way to the top. Newly signed to the Philadelphia Flyers, he’s living the dream. The girls. The money. The fame. He thought he had everything he wanted until he met Georgia. Suddenly he wants more–he wants her. He’ll do whatever it takes to get her and Ben Lancaster always gets what he wants.

But the girl who’s different from anyone he’s ever known is hiding secrets. And as the dog days of summer pass, only time will tell if Georgia’s secrets can be healed. Or if her bruised soul is strong enough to resist Ben Lancaster…

My Review

Sometimes the best place to find love is right back where you started…

Falling asleep in a different bed every night has made it easy for Cain Black to forget his past. It’s been ten years since he packed his guitar and left Crystal Lake to chase his dreams. Now tragedy has forced him home again. And though Cain relishes the freedom of the road, one stolen moment with Maggie O’Rourke makes him wonder if he’s missing out on something bigger than fame.

For Maggie—single mother and newly settled in Crystal Lake—love is a luxury she just can’t afford. Sure, she appreciates the tall, dark and handsome looks of prodigal son Cain Black. But how long can she expect the notorious hellion to stay?

The last thing either of them wants is something complicated. But sometimes love has its own plans.


  1. I am totally in FLOVE with her!!! I devoured the Baker triplets and can’t wait for the sequel to The Summer he came home!!!! I would love to be entered in the contest for The Stillness in You. I much prefer contemporary over paranormal although I do find my self reading more and more paranormal lately. 🙂 HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!!!

  2. I like reading both paranormal and contemporary, each is a different escape.
    I would like to be intered in the contest for The Stillness in You.
    Happy Anniversary

  3. I like both. I like all the world-building and interesting paranormal characters in the paranormal books, while in contemporary, I feel a lot of those stories can relate to me or my friends. They are both read for pleasure and an escape from everyday life.
    I’d like to be included in both giveaways.
    Comgrats Nikki!

  4. I would love to get a copy of The Summer He Came Home — it’s been on my wish list since I saw the previews for it!!

  10. That is a tough choice, because I am a huge fan of both. But if I have to choose would say contemporary. I am a big fan of Julianna/Julie. I loved A Stillness in You, but am dying to read The Summer He Came home. What a great giveaway

  11. It depends on my mood…..there are times when I am in the mood for just a straight, sexy contempory, but I do love paranomals. I guess if I had to choose, I would have to go with paranormal.

  12. What a tough question. I love them both but lately I’ve been on a contemporary kick. I would love to win any of the prizes.

  13. Both 🙂 I usually alternate with the two. Can’t pick between two amazing genres!
    I would like to be entered for the Summer He Came Home giveaway 🙂
