Shopping for an Heir by Julia Kent Review
Gerald Wright works for billionaires. He never imagined he’d become one.The former Navy Seal is a chauffeur by day, artist by night, so when hotter-than-ever ex-fiancée Suzanne Dayton interrupts his nude model sculpting class to serve him with inheritance paperwork from a man he’s never heard of, he assumes it’s a joke.Turns out the joke’s on him. There’s just one catch. A big one.And it might be Suzanne — in more ways than he ever dreamed.* * *Shopping for an Heir is the 10th book in the New York Times bestselling Shopping for a Billionaire series by Julia Kent.

Shopping for an Heir is the 10th book in her Shopping series.  Gerald Wright has been the security/chauffeur for the McCormick’s, and he shows the sensitive side he has through sculpting and his art classes.  He is the benefactor of an artifact that he helped smuggle into the country years ago to keep safe.  Suzanne Dayton is Gerald’s ex who he broke things off with 10 years ago and hasn’t seen since.  She is now a lawyer that is charge of making sure that the instructions with the inheritance has been carried out.  For the both of them, the past and the present collide, as they realize those sparks have never stopped between them.

I absolutely love this series.  The cast of characters are wonderfully flawed and never to fail with the hilarity of situations they find themselves in. Though we don’t deal with the main characters of the Shopping Series, they do make appearances along with Marie and newbie Agnes who proves herself just as feisty as the other characters.  Julia interweaves both seriousness and comedy in this book with the discussion of PTSD that Gerald has gone through from his days in service.  I love how she brings it to attention without making it too heavy or weighted down. I give this book 4 1/2 stars.  I loved how seamlessly the story flowed and introducing new and old characters of the series wasn’t that far of a stretch.

If you love a slew of great characters and situations that you wonder can happen in real life, then the Shopping series is for you.  I love the expansion into the series with Gerald and Suzanne’s story, and can’t wait for the next book in the series.

He leaned in, kissing her softly. Smoochy stirred, sat up, and toddled off, jumping off a very distracted Gerald’s lap.

 

“Let’s take this,” she said, breathless between kisses, “one step at a time.”

 

“Define ‘step.’”

 

“Spend the night with me.”

 

“I like that step.”

 

“Make me breakfast in the morning.”

 

“Is that step two?”

 

“Sure.”

 

“I always respond well to a clearly defined set of procedures.”

 

“How about a map?”

 

“Even better.”

 

Neither one moved. The offer, once accepted, was almost enough. Acting on it felt so big. So was he, though. As she crawled into his lap, connected to him by their eager mouths, she pulled her skirt up so she could straddle him, his arms wrapping around her waist. The heat of sinking into him, the intimacy of having his body so close, made her mind rest.

 

Her body took over.

 

“You taste so good,” he murmured between kisses, his hands sliding up her spine in tandem, then moving across her shoulders in synchronized perfection to remove her suit jacket. The shiver she gave came less from the temperature change and more from the delicious feel of how he touched her. With Gerald, a touch wasn’t just the stroke of a finger, the brush of a palm, the flick of a tongue, or the thrust into her. Never one to waste movement, he reveled in it, living fully in dimensions she couldn’t even see.

 

He pulled her shirt out from her waistband just as she returned the favor, seeking the raw warmth of his skin. Her hands flattened against his thick shoulders, the connection grounding, her body moving in a slow, involuntary rhythm against him as he kissed her hard.

 

So hard.

 

As he cupped her breasts over her bra, her nipples tightened, the ache spinning down in a spiral, tearing through years of pain and craving. Her breath hitched and his kiss became more urgent, his intent clear. It was so good to kiss a man who knew how to hold her just so, who used a feather light touch where she wanted it, and who pressed where a tighter squeeze made a difference.

 

Gerald had been joyfully unrestrained in bed, hours of pleasure unending, as if there were no events marking time— no final orgasm, no steps in a schematic— but only the undefined fuzzy logic of imperfect art played out in moans and sighs, in the light stroke of a fingertip against responsive flesh, in the wave of tongue against arched hips and the push and pull of love cried out in ecstasy.

 

In minutes, they would be back in that dimension. S

 

he shivered with anticipation.

 

“What are we doing?” she whispered, the tone playful, his hands sinking into her long waves.

 

“Whatever it is, it’s been a while,” he rasped. “I’ve missed you. I’ve missed this.”

Wide Open Spaces by Aurora Rose Reynolds Review

Wide Open Spaces by Aurora Rose Reynolds Review
That moment your life changes.

That moment that changes your life.

That moment you love someone more than you love yourself.

That was the moment we gave our son up for adoption and the moment I was left bare. A wide-open space that would forever be empty.

There are moments that define you as a person, moments that prove just how strong you are, moments you push yourself to keep going forward when all you really want to do is give up. It was in one of those moments when I reached out and found him waiting for me.

When Shelby Calder left home fifteen years ago, she never planned on returning to the Alaskan town she left behind. But after the death of her grandfather and a bitter divorce, she hopes going home will be a fresh start for her and her ten-year-old son.

Zach Watters has made a lot of mistakes in his life. But when he sees Shelby Calder, looking more beautiful than ever, standing outside her childhood home, he promises himself that letting her go won't be a mistake he ever makes again.

Some things never change and love is one of them.
Goodreads

Wide Open Spaces is the second book in her Shooting Stars series.  You don’t have to read the first one to be able to read Wide Open Spaces.  I’ve read Fighting to Breathe, the first book, and honestly couldn’t wait for this book to be released.

Shelby left her home fifteen years determined to never return. But a turn of events, her divorce and her grandfather’s passing, has her returning home and facing the reasons she left in the first place.  One of those reasons was Zach, and on her first day home learns that he is her next door neighbor.  Over the past fifteen years, Zach has not forgotten Shelby nor the love that he has for her. Now that she is back, he is not letting her slip through his fingers again.

It is not an easy feat for Shelby to take that chance again.  Years ago, both her and Zach had to make a torturous decision and she is still feeling the after effects, and isn’t sure she can open her heart to Zach again the way he wants her to.  Add in ex’s who make things difficult on both ends, you wonder if they are truly meant to be.  But as Zach and Shelby deal with the repercussions of their decision, they find that they are truly healing themselves and each other.  That empty void both Zach and Shelby have is filled by their love for each other.

I was glad that I kept tissues nearby because a few times I had to stop because tears were freely falling.  Aurora wrote a beautiful second chance love story that deals with something that many people face in society.  She truly pulls at your heartstrings and you wonder just how much love you have in your heart for the people in and not in your life.  It is a second chance romance in many ways, along with redemption and acceptance.  I give this book 5 stars because even after I read it, it stayed with me for several days and is easily on my list of rereads.  I have read all of Aurora’s books and I think with the material written about, this is the best she released.  I can’t wait to see what more we can expect from her.
