The Captain (Griffin Force #2) by: Julie Coulter Bellon

Captain Colt Mitchell is part of the elite Griffin Force team hunting down terrorist Nazer al-Raimi. After an attack on the Canadian Parliament buildings, the team gets good intel on Nazer’s whereabouts. They plan to grab him, but when the mission goes wrong, Colt is captured and dragged away. Bruised, restrained, and disoriented, Colt is stunned to see Brenna Wilson, the Canadian intelligence officer who broke his heart years ago, standing next to Nazer. But how deep is she in the operation and can she help Colt escape?

After the devastating attack on Canadian soil, Brenna is recruited to go undercover to find out what Nazer is planning next. She’s close to her goal until her former flame Colt Mitchell is taken hostage. Walking away from him has always been her biggest regret and she knows she has to save him, even if it blows her mission. Taking matters into her own hands, she pulls off a daring escape, but Colt and Brenna must learn to trust each other again if they want to stay alive. With their hearts and their lives on the line can they survive long enough to stop Nazer from ravaging another country’s sense of security?

This book was another great addition to this series. Like all of Julie's other books it is full of action and suspense with a tiny mix of romance. I have been a huge fan of these books and although I enjoyed reading it, I feel like they are getting repetitive and I am ready to see something new. I want to get that feeling of WOW that I felt after reading her first book. The characters are great and the story line flows really well and if you are a fan of the others I'm am sure you will enjoy this one too. It is fun to see them all get their own stories I just feel that all the books are all very much alike. Maybe I just wasn't in the mood for this kind of book this week...Like I said overall it was good I just wanted a wow factor and didn't get one, great job though Julie!
NOTE: I received an ARC copy of this book from the Author in exchange for an honest review.

The Independent One by: Cami Checketts

Sweet romance by bestselling author, Cami Checketts
Single mom, Haley Turnbow, escapes to the tropical Isla del Sol for an ideal vacation with her five-year old. She's planning on lazy beach days, great food, and a happy kid. She doesn't plan on the resident hotel ghost stalking her and the island's fine-looking owner drawing her in with his confident, fun personality.
Cal Johnson is king of his own island, happy and busy. Thoughts of a family are on the horizon, but always seem out of grasp until a beautiful mom and her wild little boy flip his world upside down. He falls in love with both of them. Realizing they're going to leave at the end of their vacation, he does everything in his power to capture Haley's heart.
Haley and Cal may be able to enjoy a vacation romance, but can what they feel translate into the real world? Only a giant leap of trust will give the answer.
Introduction by Lucy McConnell and Bonus Chapter from The Rebellious One: A Billionaire Bride Pact Romance by Jeanette Lewis.

This book was awesome! I couldn't put it down and read it in a day! I LOVE this series. Every book in the Billionaire Bride Pact series is amazing! Haley has had a rough adult life trying to be a single Mom and all she wants is to be able to take care of herself and her son. She wins a free vacation and the last thing she needs on the trip is to find a man or to deal with a ghost but both end up happening. We have seen bits and pieces of Cal Johnson in some of the other books so it was fun to see them both get a story together. Cami pulls you into her stories and you connect with the characters like you have known them forever this one is no different. She has an amazing talent for writing and I love all her books! As always, awesome job Cami! I loved it! 

The Rebeillious One by: Jeanette Lewis

Holly Clarke has lived a life of comfort and privilege growing up on Le Ciel, her family's luxury resort. But extreme wealth often comes with strings attached and in Holly's case, it means a loveless marriage to Brit Anderson, the son of her father's partner. With her wedding day looming ever closer, Holly's rebellious streak finally wakes up and she realizes she must find a way out of the engagement, especially when she meets mysterious and sexy Jordan Fischler. But Jordan has a secret, and loving him could mean the end of everything Holly knows.

I loved this book. This series is so awesome! Holly is all about family and keeping her parents happy but an arraigned marriage just loses its appeal as she gets older, that is if it ever had any...I love that Holly realizes that she needs to take control of her life and change things for the better. I've always been kind of rebellious so it was easy for me to cheer her on! Another great addition to this series. I love that there are going to be 12 of these books because I have had a blast reading every single one so far! Great job Jeanette!
