At age twenty-nine, Piper Daniels is having the longest dry spell of her life. When she agrees to be set up on a blind date, she never expects it to end with the hottest sex of her life.
But when she discovers that her very well-endowed secret lover is also her new boss, heartless womanizer and cutthroat CEO Jackson Dane, she chalks it up to a one-time mistake and puts up her best professional front. But Jackson isn’t used to rejection, and if Piper thinks it’s going to be easy to move on from their tryst, she’s underestimated his determination.

Children of Redemption, book 3 in the Children of Vice series by JJ McAvoy.






“I do not come in peace.”



Life has never been easy for the second-born Callahan son, Wyatt. Trained as a doctor, but born a Callahan, his life has always been one of warring dualities.



But when the Callahan family suffers a massive blow, it’s time for Wyatt to step up and decide, once and for all, who he really is. Will Wyatt rise to the challenge as his enemies close in or will his actions lead to destruction of the world’s most powerful mafia family?



Dawn's Review 
I have had the pleasure of reading every word that Ms. McAvoy has printed and Children of Redemption is, once again an instant favorite. I hold McAvoy’s writing as some of the very best, so the standard is high. I am always excited when her latest work exceeds what I had previously thought was her best. I am left looking for the right adjectives and I fail miserably. I always come back to the same one...Brilliant.
I often use the terms “smart and the depth of her characters,” when talking/describing her writing.  Her Ruthless People and Children of Vice series are some of the best written books I have had the joy to read.  But Children Of Redemption, it is something very special. Pieces of puzzles that have been missing, are now solved, only leading to more questions. That is the hallmark of a truly talented  writer.
Wyatt Callahan, has always been the loose cannon for me. I was just waiting on him to join “the dark side,” but secretly not wanting him to. He is much more dangerous because it is so unexpected. His flashbacks with his mother we’re just perfection. When Melody was explaining why she wanted him to not fear water, it was genius.

Wyatt, don’t think like normal people think. Normal people are mediocre. Think like me, like your father, like a Callahan. You never have to control water. Water, air, fire, dirt. It’s all irrelevant. None of those things care about you. They do not change Course for you. Normal people try to avoid or fight those things. But I know, and now you know, you are a love the water, the air, the fire, and the dirt. The most important element is you. If someone dragged me to the bottom of this pool, would you be scared?” 
“NO”
“Why?”
“Because you can hold your breath for a really, really,  really long time! You’d get down there and punch ‘em for grabbing you, then swim right back up.”‘
She smiled wide. “Exactly,. Normal people would fight the water. Try to fight to get back up...why? Because they are scared people. Scared they aren’t strong enough or smart enough to Maine it out alive. But me? I know no matter what, no matter where I am , I will survive that moment. I like swimming because it reminds me that I don’t fear what kills others, because I am not like any other. I rise and thrive in anything and everything. Does that answer your question?



Wyatt, is stepping into some mightily large shoes while Eathan is “gone.” He is handling business as he sees fit. He dishes out punishment as he sees fit and that is very distressing to his best friend and closest confidant Helen. She is not liking the new Wyatt. She is afraid that he is liking the power a little too much and Helen, is one to call him out on his behavior. We see the dynamic change when Helen, finds out what Wyatt did as a teenager that altered the course of her life. Can Helen forgive Wyatt?  He has zero regrets for what he did and what he would do, when it comes to Helen.  Again, very smart writing, letting us know that Helen was not always a part of the Callahan family. It was a very important subplot that needed to be covered.

Redemption, is a book about coming together. Wyatt and Ethan finally see that they can run this family together better than fighting each other. Ethan, is destroyed when Wyatt is suffering. He is struggling with believing he let his brother and his parents down. Can Ethan bring him back or does Helen hold the key to bringing Wyatt back for the abyss?
There are so many things that could be said about this fantastic book, but it is best to let the story do the talking.  I am begging and pleading with Ms. McAvoy to get my grabby hands on the last installment in the COV series. But Wyatt's story, it is the best in this series , IMO.  Ms McAvoy has an amazing opportunity to take us to the edge in Vicious Minds. I CAN NOT WAIT!

Kian: An Undercover Billionaire Novel by Melody Anne.... Review by Dawn


There was a time when surgeon Kian Forbes would have surrendered every cent of his vast family fortune if it could make Roxie Gilbert happy. That was before she skipped town, broke his heart, and sent him spinning through a string of forgettable one-night stands. He never even knew he’d fathered a child—with Roxie’s sister, no less. But in the wake of tragedy, little Lily needs a home. And Kian wants his daughter. But Roxie’s not giving in or giving up without a fight.
Fearful of her intense feelings for Kian, Roxie ran. Now that her sister’s death has brought her home, she intends to take custody of her niece and avoid Kian—easier said than done on both counts. With their wealth and power, the Forbes men are accustomed to winning. And as she and Kian are forced to spend time together for Lily’s sake, saying no to everything he wants proves impossible…even though it means risking both their hearts all over again.






Review

It has been quite a while since I last read Melody Anne, I was very much looking forward to this book. 

Kian, starts off with immediate drama and pain, I didn't mind that. We get to see Kian the doctor in the beginning and pretty much the only real time we see him in "doctor action," which I did not mind. Working as a trauma doc Kian, has seen his fair share of brutality, but he wasn't ready for this set of victims. 

Secrets are revealed and lives are changed in a matter of a few sentences. Giving you the set up for what you are sure is this angst filled book, not so much....that I did mind. With the truth bomb that is set off in this story and the reemergence of his "one and only love" who left him with no word 4 years ago... HELLO ANGST! But no, this brushes over things that normal ex's would yell, kick and scream about. I found myself a little let down in the drama department AFTER the first chapter. 
Roxie, I found to be a tad off putting. I didn't dislike her, I just never connected with her. She was an amazing mother, I'll give her that. She fought and was fiercely in love with Lily. I could feel that in the wonderfully crafted words describing her need to be with Lily. 

The story is steamy but not too much that it takes away from the story. This second chance romance and surprise child story is really a nice story with a HEA.

MEND: A Second Chance Romance by Chelle Bliss.....Review by Dawn


Mend: A Second Chance Romance by [Bliss, Chelle]

MEND

A steamy, gripping standalone romance from USA Today bestselling author Chelle Bliss.

Before senior year, I was forced to move away, leaving behind the only man I ever loved. He promised he'd love me forever. He vowed nothing would tear us apart. He swore he'd wait for me, but Jack lied.

Six years later, when our paths cross again, his broad shoulders, rock-hard chest, and rippling muscles almost make me forget his betrayal. His rugged voice, tempting lips, and sinful smile make it harder for me to deny the feelings I still have for him. 

Now, Jack wants to make me his again, but our past may be too much for us to overcome.

They say time heals all wounds, but the years haven't diminished my heartache. The only thing that dulls the pain is Jack's lips caressing my skin as he whispers, "It's always been you."



Dawn's Review

If you are looking for a sugary sweet HEA, than this is the book for you. Jack and Evie, are such an easy couple to fall in love with, and you will. Chelle Bliss, has a way with giving the reader exactly what they want in a love story. Enough angst that it is not overwhelming and enormous character depth. This is an easy happy story, letting the reader know that love a second time around is often better than the first. There is a crushing blow that happens, but it does not weigh the story down, as it could have if Chelle, decided to go that route. 
You will not be disappointed in this quick and fun read. Chelle Bliss, has delivered a beautiful story that many will enjoy from page 1 to the very last page.
