On My Knees by Meredith Wild

Synopsis  

Haunted by the responsibility of caring for her troubled family, Maya Jacobs gave the only answer she could when Cameron asked her to marry him. Years later, entrenched in a soulless professional routine, she distracts herself from the lingering regret of her decision with a “work hard, play hard” lifestyle that guarantees no man will ever find his way into her heart again.

Cameron Bridge has spent the past five years married to the military, trying to escape the painful memory of losing Maya. After fighting his own war in the desert, he starts a new life in New York City, with his siblings, Olivia and Darren, by his side.

When fate brings Maya back to him in the heart of a city filled with its own hopes and shadows, can Cameron find the girl he once loved in the woman she’s become?

Review

I’m a little disappointed with this one. It’s the first book by Meredith Wild that I’ve not completely enjoyed before I get into that a bit of background on the story.

Maya and Cameron were a couple during college until he proposed and she refuses because she couldn’t leave her mother behind. Fast forward 5 years and they both leading vastly different lives.  Cameron owns his own Gym after serving time on the military, and Maya is now walking on wall street. After a chance meeting with his sister, Maya and Cameron are reunited.

The thing that I didn’t like that most are that none of the characters underlying conditions were properly addressed. Maya is clearly alcohol dependent which is more obvious when she explained why she drinks. Cameron has brief moments of PTSD and none of this issues are really looked into in any depth.

So I did like the gist of the storyline which is what drew me to this book. The chemistry between Cameron and Maya was on fire and you could really feel the love they have for each other.

The Bottom Line:

Even though I didn’t really enjoy this book myself, I do think I would recommend especially if you are after a bit of smut.

My Rating:  3/5 🌟 🌟 🌟

Misadventures of a City Girl – Meredith Wild & Chelle Bliss

Synopsis

Fresh off a divorce from a Hollywood hotshot, Madison Atwood needs an escape. With the paparazzi fresh on her heels and her love life splashed on every tabloid, she runs away to a swanky retreat in Northern California. Avalon Springs is the mountainside haven she needs to find herself again.

Luke Dawson lives off the grid, preferring solitude to society. When he finds a beautiful woman soaking in the hot springs on his property, he can’t stop himself from watching her. She captures his attention, but she’s just a city girl—a beautiful distraction disturbing the peace he’s settled here to find.

When Madison discovers Luke’s secluded cabin, he can’t turn her away again. They make no promises. Madison needs to feel wanted again, and Luke misses the touch of a woman. But when mother nature has other plans, they’re forced to spend more than a night of passion together. Can Luke say goodbye to the only woman who’s made him feeling anything in years, and can Madison leave behind the man who brought her back to life?

Review

I received an advanced copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This was a fun light read, Madison decides she needs to get away from the spotlight after her divorce from her Hollywood actor ex-husband. She chooses a quiet retreat in Northern California and it’s there that she meets Luke.

This book has smut galore! lots of raunchy scenes, the second time these characters meet it’s pretty hot!

I really enjoyed the chemistry between the two characters. I thought that the story was written well, the pace was good and I liked that even though this was a quick read both the characters were well developed.

The story is probably best to describe as finding love when you’re not even looking for it and making changes and compromises in your life to keep it.

Conclusion

If you’re looking for a light raunchy read this is the book for you. I’d also recommend this if you’re going on holiday it would make excellent poolside reading.

My Rating:  3/5 🌟 🌟 🌟
