Mark love women and fast cars and motorcycles but when he first met Michelle (Mitch) it was love at first sight, and Mitch thought the same way when she first saw Mark. They almost had me believing in love at first sight.

Mitch is a top notch mechanic and college professor, who jump starts Mark’s heart. The characters of this book are so good together. Once a Stallion falls in love with you it can't get any better. When these Stallion men love they love hard. There are two more fine Stallion men and I can't wait to see what’s going to happen with Matthew and Luke. This is a great book can’t wait for the next two.

Three years ago Joseph Hudson died in an accident. He left behind a grieving widow Courtney, whose social life has been dormant ever since. Her cousin Pilar persuades her to meet her at the hottest club in Lake Barri, Colorado, The Train Stop. However, Pilar failed to show or answer her cell phone leaving Courtney to fend for herself.

Born and raised in Anchorage, Alaska. Detective Lloyd Vance moved to Lake Barri. The person he is to meet at The Train Stop failed to show up however, when he sees Courtney he no longer cares. They talk as each is attracted, but their first encounter is interrupted when he is called on duty as her cousin is a hit-and-run victim. As they fall in love, he refuses to discuss with her either the case or his relationship with Pilar before he met Courtney.

This is a fascinating contemporary romance in which the lead male’s reluctance to discuss his relationship with this beloved’s cousin puts their future in jeopardy. The story line is driven by Courtney and Lloyd who each has ghost they bring into their relationship she feels guilt regarding Joseph as he’s never recovered from his dad walking out on his mom and him. Although one subplot “heals” long festering wounds too easily, fans will appreciate the romance between the Alaskan Detective and the Lower Forty-eight widow.

Okay, so the story was cute and made you feel warm and fuzzy. It wasn't all that I thought that it could have been. I thought it was a little unbelievable. Mac and Cinnamon made a cute couple but something about Mac I didn't like too much. He seemed to act too much like a spoiled child at times. I wanted to know did he need a woman, a wife or his mother?

The Perfect Man

Ms. Fredd has come back with a vengeance. I compare her to Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson they are the only ones who can be gone for years and make a jubilant come back. This is the second book in the series, The Three Mrs. Foster. This book was great. You get to know the up tight Renee who has built up this wall around her heart until she meets back up with Chris Foster the younger brother of her deceased husband who happens to be Fine.

Chris sees the real Renee and that is who he falls in love with. Chris is also the man who said he did not want a forever relationship but Renee does. Renee has some issue in trusting. Will Chris break that wall down? Will Renee fall head over heels in love with him as he falls in love with Renee?

We also get to see Alexandria and Hunter again along with Danielle and Tristian. I also recommend that you read the first book, This Time For Good by Carmen Green, and Just Desserts by Brenda Jackson the third book in the series.
