Review of SUMMER LOVIN' by Donna Cummings

Goodreads Summary:

Mia is starting her new life away from the dull work-a-day world of managing her brothers' business. She volunteers to dogsit at her friend's house for two weeks, giving her a chance to figure out the next step in her career. Even though it's not an easy gig chasing after a puppy with a shoe fetish, there's the added bonus of the hunky guy next door. Maybe it's finally time for Mia to add a summer fling to her resumé.

Luke is a workaholic forced to take two weeks' vacation, and he's pretty sure it might kill him. But then he has a great idea: getting to know his temporary neighbor. She's sexy and fun, with no worries about a long-term commitment. It's the perfect situation for a guy devoted to his job.

My Thoughts: 5-stars

I loved this short story by Donna Cummings. It was such a fun, adorable and witty read. I read it in one sitting.

The story is based on two hard working professionals taking a two-week vacation from their fast-paced lives. Mia is dog sitting at her friend's house, and the hunky neighbor, Luke, is taking a break from his restaurant...he also happens to be a great cook. Neither are looking for love, but love finds them anyway with the help of a cute little fluff-ball, aka Hellboy.

Summer Lovin' makes the reader feel as if she is experiencing the budding feelings of falling in love all over again. Mia and Luke's relationship proves that when it comes to love, no matter what your logic decides, your heart is the one in control. Overall, I really enjoyed this story and look forward to reading more by Donna Cummings. I definitely recommend Summer Lovin' to romance lovers.

Review of VENGEANCE by Michelle Madow

 Here is my review of Vengeance by Michelle Madow. Make sure to check out the 1st book in the Saga, Remembrance. See my review here.

I loved Remembrance, so when I found out Madow was releasing the second part of the Transcend Time Saga, I couldn't wait to read it. And it definitely did not disappoint. Chelsea is obviously very upset, feeling as if she's been betrayed by both her boyfriend and best friend, so when someone offers her the opportunity to right what she believe has gone horribly wrong, she must decide whether to accept the offer, or move on. What would you do? By the end of the story, Madow had me dying for more. 

I can't wait for the third book so I can see what happens next. All I know for sure, is everyone's lives are going to be totally flipped upside down, leaving the reader wondering what will unfold when it comes to  love, destiny and reincarnation. This book is not to be missed! I definitely recommend it! It's a must read!

You can find Vengeance on Amazon & Barnes & Noble

Thanks for stopping by and happy reading!! :)
