Review by Debra for Janise’s Jivin’ Book Blog
This is my first book by Kelly Gendron and it was quite good. Maggie and Crash both
have regrets and fears from her brother Josh’s death. She went away and when she
comes back she wants a divorce and has a secret she is keeping from Crash. Crash has
his own secret he is keeping and doesn’t want the divorce. It’s a rocky road till they learn
to talk to each other and their secrets come out, as secrets have a way of doing! There is
some big time heat in the story and the characters are good.

Review by Debra for Janise’s Jivin’ Book Blog
This book had all the right stuff! I have not read anything by Lilly Atlas before but I am
seriously needed to get to the store and get me the previous books in this series. So much
compiled inside of 31 chapters. It is tear worthy, heartbreaking and renewing in faith in
those around you and the strength getting added to sometimes your family isn’t always
blood! This book had fun, action, mystery and let me just tell you the sizzle was fire
Copper and Shell are the best of everything as to their shared history, the ways in which
life gets in the way and how it can heal you and bring you back to something so powerful
you will be some much better for it. It has a character or two that you may want to throw
off a cliff or something equally as horrible they are so bad! I love when an author can
make you feel that strongly about the characters and their story!
Rock on Lilly Atlas!

Mine to Protect is the first book by Author Kennedy L. Mitchell that I have ever read, it did take me a little while to get into the book, it seemed a little slow, but soon picked up speed and was fast paced, laced with action,pain and wondering what was going to happen next. At one point I was on the edge of my seat wondering if I could figure out who was doing the misdeeds with in the pages of the book and even made a timeline chart like you see in the crime shows on T.V. Shows. I look forward to reading more from Kennedy.

Review by Kelly for Janise's Jivin' Book Blog
I absolutely loved this book. Ava is a single mom to a little girl named Lilly. Lilly's dad was killed by a drunk driver when she was a baby. Ava's mom and Lilly's dad's family want nothing to do with them. They just moved to the Austin area where Ava is going to be teaching 3rd grade and Lilly will be in the same school. Ava has to watch her spending because the money Lilly's dad left her is almost gone. With moving it took a lot of it. It's summer and school will be starting soon and they need to find things to keep them busy. A park is the first thing they go look for.
Lilly loves the monkey bars and is a real daredevil. So Ava keeps an watchful eye on her. Ava pulls out her camera and starts taking pictures. That's when she sees the most handsome man with 4 kids hanging off him. He finds another bench to sit at while the kids go play. Ava is so intent on watching Lilly that she don't notice the man come and sit by her. She realized he was talking to her. Hudson wants her. But Ava turns him down when he asks her out. Hudson is determined to make her his. Ava feels the attraction for Hudson but doesn't want to act on it so soon.
They bump into one another a few times . This time when Hudson asks Ava out she says yes. Hudson even has a babysitter lined up for her. The babysitter is his housekeeper. Hudson works at the family construction company with his dad and brothers. Hudson plans to build a new neighborhood. Strange things keep happening at the construction site and he calls on his brother who is a cop to look into it. He needs to find out who is behind it. Ava and Hudson have a strong relationship, but can Ava trust Hudson won't break her heart? Things go bad for Hudson, but when they figure out who is behind it all, I had already figured it out. I recommend this book. It was that good.
Meet Wendy, check out some of her reviews.
My name is Wendy and I live in rural central Missouri. I am the Practice Manager for my Mom’s Veterinary Clinic which is probably why we have a houseful of 4 legged fur-babies. We are a farming family.
I have always loved books and was the kid who never went anywhere without a book. I love to read a variety of genres from thriller to paranormal. I didn’t start reviewing books until a little over a year ago. I had no idea what a difference it made for the authors. I love reviewing for the blog since I have found so many wonderful new authors to read.
Title: International Guy Vol 4 (Madrid, Rio, Los Angeles)
Series: International Guy, # 10-12
Author: Audrey Carlan
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Rating: 5 Stars
Release Date: February 5th, 2019
Review by Wendy for Janise’s Jivin’ Book Blog
This is the final book in the International Guy series. Parker, Bo and Royce own a business that is a bit
unconventional. Each job is very unique. They are oftentimes building confidence in their client as well
as helping with business issues. They have helped an actress find her her love for acting, a writer find
her muse and heiress take control of her company as a few examples.
The author has taken us on so many adventures through this story. She throws some major events into
this final installment to make it the best yet. Vol 4 has some love, some heartbreak and some major
surprises! I love the characters and hope that Audrey writes a spinoff so we can follow Bo and Royce
into the future.
