Trade It All by Ruth Cardello

Lance Barrington’s priority is business, not pleasure. Only one woman has ever been able to turn him inside out: Willa Chambers, his sister’s best friend. Forbidden. Scandalous. Unforgettable.

They’ve spent the last ten years trying to forget one night.

When Willa and Lance are thrown together again, things heat up fast. Loving him almost destroyed her the first time.

This time, will it heal her?


Trade It All (The Barrington Billionaires, #3)Trade It All by Ruth Cardello

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I like this story because it’s not one of those fast developing romance. In fact, this one has history.  A past that was hunting both the characters. I like how the characters develop throughout the story and how they faced the hurdle between them. I also like how Willa’s friends stood up for her even without her spilling everything.

I also like how the characters get to know not only each other but only their own self throughout the process. I’m just a little hung and wanting to unravel the mystery around the family. Hopefully the next books will give justice to all of that mystery. I’m looking forward to the next one.

Crazy Nights by Danielle Stewart

Emmitt Kalling isn’t satisfied unless he’s smashing something. It can be a punching bag at the gym or some jerk’s face at the bar. He’s not picky. Since arriving home from his last deployment, he’s itching for some action. But he only finds the same problems he faced before he enlisted.

Evie Pike has been exiled from her budding acting career with few future prospects. On a journey to find her purpose, she discovers her path is only paved with disappointment and the coffee she keeps spilling on her bosses. Feeling painfully unqualified for almost everything, she realizes a chance to hop a plane with Emmitt is like a ripcord on a parachute; she’d better pull it before it’s too late.

She’s desperate to connect. He’s a master at no strings attached. Their attraction is magnetic, but their opinions are polarizing. Will their sizzling chemistry be enough?


Crazy Nights (The Barrington Billionaires Book 3)Crazy Nights by Danielle Stewart

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book had me in a roller coaster of emotion. I was thrilled, I was confused, I feel sorry and annoyed at the characters too, but most of all I learned a lot from both Emmitt and Evie.

Just like most of Danielle’s books, this story deals a lot about family and their issues. I get where Emmitt was coming from but I also understand how Evie felt the way she did. At some point in the story, I felt like Evie should just give up her ideals and go on with Emmitt’s plan because it sounds better for everybody. But in the end, I was happy she stood up for what she believe in.

I was holding my breath when the news about Emmitt came out. How Danielle weaved and spun the story was so good that even though you may have an idea what might coming next you still find yourself surprised when it finally came.

I love the story of hope, trust, and faith that this story delivers. This for me is the best one from all of Danielle’s contribution to the series. Of course, I’m still looking forward to the next one. Because with Danielle Stewart, every story just gets better and better.

You and Me Make Three

Shaun Henderson learned young that the best defense is to strike first. It’s perfect in business but not in matters of the heart.

Morgan Pereira had walked away from a high profile position to protect her son. Years later she is given another opportunity to climb the corporate ladder.

Taking the job opens wounds Morgan thought had healed.

If Shaun really does want her, he’ll have to learn that some things can’t be forced. Love plays by its own rules.


You & Me Make Three: Barrington Billionaire's Series: Book ThreeYou & Me Make Three: Barrington Billionaire’s Series: Book Three by Jeannette Winters

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The story started a bit slow for me. At first, I wasn’t really into it but every turn of a page takes me deeper into the story until I find that I can’t put the book down until I get to the end.

I like the added diversity of the story. It gives more feelings and emotions into it. In fact I feel like there should be a book two fo this book three. Because I want to know what happened after they became three. How did Tyler feel about that? How did Shaun develop their relationship? I would like to see how that one build up. Because much as I like the diversity, I feel like it wasn’t really explored. Like Tyler was just there to add as a conflict to the budding romance between Shaun and Morgan. So yeah, another story or maybe a novella starring them would be something that I’ll love to see.

Storywise, it was really good. The first part as I said was a bit slow for me maybe because of the lack of dialogue and too much self-thought. Although I like knowing how characters really think I also like being shown these things through scenes that involved dialogue and interactions. It gets better throughout the story as the characters show you a part of themselves and when you really get into the heart of it, I guess it doesn’t really matter how it started.

All in all, I really enjoyed reading this story and I can’t wait to find more of what happened to the other Henderson siblings.

my thoughts

Derrick Nash knows the pain of loss. But is he seeking justice or revenge? He doesn’t care as long as someone pays the price.

It is Casey Collin’s duty at FEMA to help those in need when a natural disaster strikes. After a tornado hits Honeywell, she finds there are more problems than just storm damage. Will she follow company procedures or her heart?

Can Derrick move forward without the answers he’s been searching for? Can Casey teach him how to trust again? Or will she need to face the fact that not every story has a happy ending?

my thoughts

This is another evolution to Jeannette Winter’s writing. I enjoyed the book so much I can’t put it down until I reach the  end.

I enjoyed every character in the story. I like how independent Casey was and how firm she is in her beliefs. I like how she give her heart to help the people and not just do a job. And I like how she wormed her wy into Derrick’s heart.

Derrick on the other hand, was a bit stubborn but you can empathize with him after everything he went through. I also like how the people on his ranch played their part in this story. But most of all, I’m curious about Casey’s brother, Mark. What is he really up to?

I only have a couple of questions, like what does FEMA stands for? And also, there was an issue about the accident and I’m not sure if I just went past it because I’m reading too fast but I’m not sure it was mentioned what exactly happened.

Aside from this, I love Casey and Derrick and I can’t wait to read about Mark.

Table For Two (Barrington Billionaires #2) by Jeannette Winters Reviewed



Title: Table For Two (Barrington Billionaires #2)

Author: Jeannette Winters

Release Date: March 19, 2016

my thoughts

Dean Henderson never backs down from a challenge. No matter the cost or the opponent, when it comes to business, if he wants it he gets it. No exceptions.

Tessa Brooks left her small town to get out of the spotlight of being the preacher’s daughter. Boston is the perfect place to blend in and finally be herself. A low profile job in the HR office of Poly-Shyn fits perfectly into the life she is creating for herself.When Dean takes over as the new CEO, sparks fly. Tessa grew up hearing about the difference between right and wrong, but no one ever told her that wrong could feel so good.

They belong together, but they might realize it too late.

There are consequences to loving a powerful man–and sometimes they’re deadly.

my thoughts

What I like most about these Barrington Billionaire series is that, not only was it written by three different authors but that it also shows events intertwined with each of the authors book and like people from real life that came from different places that came to know each other because of their life events and goals, these people met each other the same way. For me, it gave the feeling of not reading a novel but real life story too. And though the characters specially the male ones came from very well off families, their struggles were very much human that you can feel it touching your soul.

I like how Dean stood his ground to prove himself and prove to the people around him that he is not what they thought him to be. I like how Tess despite seeming to be ordinary did not cower to Dean even if he tried to intimidate her and over power her. I also like how the characters grow and how they came to resolve their differences and be together as a family in the end.

Also, I felt that Jeannette Winters’ writing improved again from how she wrote this novel to the previous one.

This book is not just romance, it’s more like it’s about family, about trying to prove oneself  and achieving your goals. Of setting your priorities and getting to know yourself in the process. If you love stories like that, this one is for you.

All Bets Off (Betting on You Series #5) by Jeannette Winters Reviewed

All Bets Off (Betting on You Series #5) by Jeannette Winters Reviewed


all bets off banner

Title: All Bets Off
Author: Jeannette Winters
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publication Date: February 22, 2o16


Beckett Davis served in the Marine Corp and has the scars inside and out as a constant reminder. They say he’s a hero, but he wishes he’d died along with those he lost from his platoon. It’ll take a special kind of woman to heal this wounded warrior.

Danielle McKesson understands survivor’s guilt. She’s raising her nephew after he witnessed the death of his parents.

Beckett says he doesn’t want her love. All he can offer is a week together.
What started as a passionate indulgence that neither wanted to deny, becomes something that changes them both.

my thoughts

I think Ross finally have competition. Beckett will surely give him a run for his money for being my favorite hero in this series. And I think his connection with Jaime is another reason that makes this book and Beckett so lovable and sweet.

I’m still not for whirlwind romances or love at first sight but the way Danielle and Beckett went around this one was a little different from what I expected. Just reading the blurb, I felt like it will be just another book with the cliche plot of ‘a week of romping on the beach then the goodbye because I’m not ready to offer you anything more because of my past’ kind of thing but it was simply not like that.

Beckett had more depth in him than what the blurb says about him. I also like how he did stuff for Danielle and even did stuff for himself because it was what he needs to have a relationship with Danielle.

I feel for Danielle a lot and how hard she must have went through for Jaime.And I felt happy when she does every time Jaime had a breakthrough.

The best part of the story was seeing the characters grow and evolved to becoming better persons that they were during the start of the story.

Jeannette Winters did a great job with writing Beckett and Danielle’s story. If you’re looking for a sweet, romantic weekend read, I highly recommend this one.

One White Lie by Jeannette Winters Reviewed



Title: One White Lie
Author: Jeannette Winters
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: December 1, 2015


Brice Henderson traded everything for power and success. His company was closing a deal that would cement his spot at the top. The last thing he needed was a distraction from the past.

Lena Razzi had spent years trying to forget Brice Henderson. When offered the opportunity of a lifetime, would she take the risk even if the price would be another broken heart?

my thoughts

I’m at lost as how to write this review without spoilers but I’ll try my best not to. So….

One White Lie, the title alone makes you think of possibilities of what that title was about. Honestly though, I’ve read quite a lot of novels with the same premise of story. When I got a hit after a few chapters what the one white lie is, I kind of wonder how the author will take such a plot that will make it different than the others. Not comparing authors, but one of the stories with almost the same story line that I loved was written by Melody Anne and deep inside I wished it wouldn’t go the same way. And it did not. That part of the story was given justice very well and I’d say the author was able to make the plot her own even though it’s been commonly used and almost a cliché.

I was just a little disappointed with the lack of dialogues. I know narrations shape up the story. It’s what give foundation and backbone to take a story where you want to lead it to. It’s how you move forward. But for me, dialogues are the soul. It’s what gives life to a good plot. And I even tried to scroll through out the whole book after I was done reading to make sure I didn’t just imagine it and I noticed there are chapters without a single dialogue in it. Thoughts by the characters narrated are good, it gives clarifications as to how a character is feeling at a certain point and gives justice to their actions. But I felt like there are a lot of scenes that would have gone better if the characters were at least talking to somebody even if they do not want to talk with each other.

I have grown to love Jeannette Winter’s novels but I cannot say that I enjoyed this one as much as I did her previous novels. But don’t get me wrong, the story as a whole was still good even if I don’t like the way it was written. And I’d still definitely look forward to the next book in the series.
