About the Book:

Wedding bells will soon be ringing in the Rawley family, but gearing up for Van and Kay’s nuptials revives old insecurities for Kay’s sister-in-law Meg. When she learns that her ex-husband is asking for her from his hospital bed, Meg must confront the painful memories of her past. Family is everything for Jeremy Rawley. Most important is the one he and Meg created together. But their beginning was tangled in memories he wishes his wife could forget for good. A call from her past brings them back to a place he thought they’d never have to be again. Forgiveness may be the key, but the first step is finding the locked heart that needs it.


My Review:

I have read both of the first two books in Olivia Hardin’s Rawley Family series, All for Hope and Justice for All.  Each story has been better than the one before, and All for Family is no exception.

Mind you, it is not absolutely necessary to have read the other Rawley Family books in order to enjoy All for Family. Each book stands on its own and focuses on one particular person (or couple) in the family.  In All for Hope, it is Hope (of course). In Justice for All it is Kay Rawley, Hope’s sister-in-law.

All for Family focuses on Meg, Hope’s brother-in-law Jeremy’s wife. Meg has been a very minor (and quiet) character in the other two books,so I really didn’t know much about her.  The book tells the story of how Meg and Jeremy met.

I think most women can identify with the character of Meg. She is uncomfortable in her own skin, constantly comparing herself to her friends, who she believes are prettier.  Meg doesn’t think she looks good in stylish clothes and doesn’t believe a good-looking man would be attracted to her. We’ve all felt this way at some point, haven’t we girls?

When Meg and Jeremy get together it is amazing!!  Warning: There are a couple of sex scenes in this story.  I am usually not a fan of explicit scenes, sometimes even skip over them, truth be told. But the love between Jeremy and Meg is so sweet and romantic (and hot 😉 that I couldn’t resist!!  Olivia Hardin wrote these scenes so well that I felt like I WAS Meg.

I give All for Family 4 1/2 stars!! It’s sweet, romantic, sexy and compassionate (these words also describe Meg). It’s a fun, fast read that will leave you wanting to find out even more about the Rawley family.  Maybe for the next book in the series Olivia could write about how Jeremy and Kay’s mother and father (the count and countess) met. I know I’ll be holding my breath in anticipation for whatever Olivia writes next!!

I received a complimentary copy of this book for the purpose of review.  All opinions are 100% my own.

The Path by Tawdra Kandle Release Day Blast


Summer’s almost over, but there’s still time for #OneLastBeachRead. And you’re in luck because the perfect way to end the summer is now live and available everywhere!


Abby Donavan came to the small beach community of Crystal Cove to start over. After a painful affair broke her heart and derailed her burgeoning career, taking over management for the just-opened bed-and-breakfast was the safe choice. In this sleepy town, Abby figured she could bury her memories and forget the pain.

When the chance to have her own hotel falls into her lap, though, she can’t resist the temptation. Making the old ipadrt_823x978Riverside Inn into the showplace she’s always dreamed of running offers the second chance she never expected.

Abby didn’t expect another kind of second chance to land on her doorstep at the same time. Ryland Kent wants to help her bring the Riverside back to life, and his passion for restoration is irresistible. But as much as she wants to ignore it, she can’t help seeing another spark in his eyes . . . one that offers to reignite her own flame.

Sometimes the path to a happily-ever-after is anything but smooth.
