I received and ARC for an honest review.
This is book 2 in the Trident Code series. Unfortunately, I didn’t read book one, but the description I read said it could be read as a stand alone, so I’m all in!! 

Sara and Kyle meet in a bar. Their chemistry is stinking hot! She is a professional cheerleader but tells him that she’s a college student and cheers for school. He is a Seal but tells her he plays football professionally. Not exactly starting out on solid ground. But when fate steps in, after he didn’t call the day after their explosive night together, they are on the same page. This was a fun, quick read with no cheating and a happily ever after…life is good!

The Rebel by Alice Ward 


I received an ARC for and honest review. 
I loved this book. Sean is the lovable bad boy turned good that thinks he’s still bad (if that makes sense). This is a love story, with , of course a man and women, but also with a man that through no fault of his own, is estranged from his 8 year old daughter. I loved seeing him earn her trust and love more than anything. There is this beautiful venerability to Sean. He is insecure because of poor decisions. He is compelled to do the right thing, especially for his daughter. Taylor was also a lovable character. She brings so much to Sean’s life. This was a wonderful read!!!!
