One in Waiting - Holley Trent
Emilie Beaudelaire hasn't been back to New Orleans since she left seventeen years ago. Her parents and step-parents didn't want to deal with the secret that she was carrying Now, she has returned to New Orleans because her uncle is in the hospital near death. Emilie stays at her family hotel during one of the "Den of Sin" events.
Leary Marshall is the first baseman for the minor league team, The Reedsville Roosters, is at the hotel because Emilie's brother Henri is one of the team sponsors. He doesn't know he is about to run into his high school sweetheart that he last heard from via her family's lawyers after she ripped out his heart and stomped on it. Leary has been in a committed relationship with the right fielder for the team, Ren Thompson, for the past year. When Leary and Emilie meet again at the hotel, sparks fly.
After Leary and Ren receive a five game suspension, they turn to Emilie's ranch and the heat between the three intensifies. "One in Waiting" was a hot book! Emilie is strong on one hand and yet damaged on the other. I loved the strength and confidence that Emilie has grown into thanks to the family that raised her after she left New Orleans. Yet, she is still damaged due to her parents.
His Every Touch - Mel Blue
Oh my goodness, Lucian is a hunk in a business suit. I loved the chemistry between Courtney and Lucian. Lucian has been the star of Courtney's fantasies for the past year and he has been attracted to her as well. I liked how it Courtney's divorce is just mentioned not beat into your head. (Yea, she put her husband through school then he divorced her.) I have read books that it was almost a secondary character. It is just used to explain why she is reluctant to keep the romance going after they return home. I loved the writing style and found the book hot. My poor e-reader is melting from just the first two books!

There is nothing like a hot geek! Xander has lusted after Sabine since they were younger and now he is getting his chance. He also has to get past Sabine's commitment issues. This novel was smoking hot. I enjoyed reading it. It was nice to see that Xander had a family side with his niece and nephews.
I received a copy of all of these novels as one ARC. Reviews are posted for each book
