The Art of Seduction:
Not what I expected
At first, I wasn’t sure what I was getting into with this story.
So at first, Catherine turned me off, she was almost like a pimp, but by the end of this book I was loving her and crying for her. Catherine shows up at the diner that Fallon is working at. She tells Fallon that if she wants to make anything of her life then she should walk out with her and become someone.
So over the next few years, Catherine trains Fallon to become a sophisticated woman. But there is a reason for everything that Catherine does.
Fallon knows why she is doing this. She wants a better life for herself. She is hoping that everything that Catherine is doing will pan out. That includes marrying Gabriel, Catherine’s son. But when she finally meets him, she wants more than just his ring. She wants his heart also.
Gabriel has lived his whole life watching his mother make decisions for the business. He knows when he meets Fallon that everything Catherine says is not true and that something is up. But he will be damned if he can stay away from her. But he will also not play his mothers game. But Fallon just might be more than he ever planned for.
These characters are beautiful and so well written. I couldn’t put this story down. I loved this story and am excited to read the next story.
Art of Forgiveness
Sometimes forgiveness is harder than love. This book is all about forgiveness. Liam and Avery were in love when they were in high school. But Liam never wanted anyone to know about it. Avery had a hard time in high school and Liam had a horrible ex-girlfriend.
When Liam finds out what the family business is he feels Avery is too pure to come into his life anymore and lies to her to break her heart. Years later when he goes to save his sister-in-law (last book) he finds Avery in a dungeon. Little does he know she had been missing for weeks.
Know Avery has to heal. Avery and Liam find that healing is the easy part. But forgiving for Avery is the hardest part for her.
This book is emotional, hard, and sexy at parts. I loved Catherine in this story. She has become such a great character. Fallon and Avery are great additions to the Stern family and I am excited to read the next book!
Art of War
Zander is the fun-loving one in the family. From the very first book, he said that he would be honored if Catherine would find him a wife. But we all knew that it wasn’t something that he was waiting on. He went about his life working and womanizing like always. But when he is tasked to find a Murphy Jr he is stumped. Everywhere he looks he can’t find him. But he does find a beautiful redhead that he can’t get out of his head.
Murphy ends up being a chick. Murphy is a no-nonsense woman that doesn’t take crap from anyone and that includes Zander and the Stern family. She ends up pissing a lot of people off when she takes over her dads casino, and even when Catherine gives her an out, marry Zander and keep some control of her casino. What will Murphy do?
I loved this book. Murphy kicked butt and Zander falls in love. Catherine finally has to come to some terms with her past. And we learn some more about what she will do to protect her family. And we all know she will do anything for that. The ending is explosive. I can’t wait to see what is next. I voluntarily read an advanced reader copy for my honest review.
