Undeniably YouUndeniably You by Jewel E. Ann
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is the first I’ve read by the author and it won’t be the last. I love a good stand-alone and this is definitely one to delve into. The writing is clear and concise, the story captivating and the humour is balanced and with characters perfectly complimenting each other, this is a story to love, cherish and hold on to.

For me this story had a bit of a Jekyll & Hyde feel about it. It started out with one distinct theme to it; comical romance with a dash of quirkiness, but then it morphed into its alter-ego; a deep contemporary romance with passion, heartbreak, angst, dare I say it, some cheating, before reaching its long awaited HEA. I loved both parts but it did feel that the author set out with one objective in mind only to be swept away by the power of the characters’ connection. The start was lighthearted with comical moments, fun banter and a delicious combo in the form of the “pool guy”, aka Lautner, and the easy-going but equally gorgeous vet, Dale. Torn between both men from the outset, Sydney, knowing she will only be house-sitting for a month, knows that romance should be kept firmly in its place; buried deep inside a locked box.

Capture (Seaside Pictures, #1)Capture by Rachel Van Dyken
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Another brilliant story from an amazing author whose writing lights up the pages in front of your eyes as it entertains and leaves you with a lasting memory. With books spanning across a range of themes, Rachel Van Dyken’s Capture brings with it an element of surprise as some of our favourite characters, from her other works, make cameo appearances to add a little something extra to this already wonderful story.

From reading the synopsis, I thought this was going to be an emotional read but with Rachel Van Dyken's talent to bring humour into most situations I need not have been concerned. From the start, when we first meet Dani and the rest of the wonderful cast, we're thrust into a potential love affair as 17 year old, recently mute, Dani crashes straight into Lincoln who, unbeknownst to her, is her new employer thanks to her Hollywood movie star/director/brother-in-law, Jaymeson. Dani is immediately captured by Lincoln, in more ways than one, as she feels something in her heart that has been dormant since losing her parents in a tragic accident.
