Career Soldier Series by Tawdra Kandle #BookBlast #AdultBooks



Kade Braggs grew up wild and free, surfing on a California beach without much ambition until an impulsive decision led him into joining the Army. What started out as a joke turned into a career, and now he's a company commander, leading several platoons of soldiers. Still, Kade does it all on his own terms; he plays as hard as he works, and having a good time is non-negotiable. Until he meets Leah Samson. Leah doesn't have time to play. On her own for as long as she can remember, she's driven, focused and intent on finishing law school at the top of her class. Nothing could distract her from that goal until an unexpected night of passion with a visiting soldier leads to life-changing complications. But while neither Kade nor Leah planned this bump in the road, the unplanned parenthood that threw the two together may be the best thing that ever happened to either of them. That is, if the heat they both feel doesn't sizzle out of control first.

These are the men of the 94th ID.

They fight with honor, they defend their nation and their brothers fiercely, and when they love, they do it with single-minded passion.

All six books are now available exclusively on Amazon, part of Kindle Unlimited!

Maximum Force

Max Remington has never been anything but a soldier. The oldest son in a family that served our nation for generations, he’d never considered any other path. The Army is his life, his home, and his one true love. Until he meets Samantha Crewe. Part millennial flower child, part spunky free spirit, Sam was raised by parents who encouraged her to express her feelings and embrace peace. She’s quick to love and open to just about any new adventure . . . but Max might be her biggest challenge yet. When these two clash, expect immediate combustion . . . of the very hottest kind.

Hitting the Silk

Once upon a time, Delia Rollins was an Army wife, until the unthinkable happened. Now as a young widow and school teacher, she's vigilant about protecting her heart. Her number one rule for the future? No more military men in her life. She can't handle the risk. Army Captain Shaw Kincaid is addicted to taking risks. He lives to challenge himself, whether it's in physical training or in pushing the safety envelope. But when he meets Delia, he realizes winning her heart might be his most daunting task ever. No matter how hard Delia works to push Shaw away, she can't deny the intense chemistry between them . . . or how much she's growing to actually like him. And for Shaw, the more time he spends with the irresistible Delia, the deeper he falls for her. For the danger ranger and the gun-shy widow, love may be the riskiest--and the sweetest--leap they ever take.

Harper Drummond lives and breathes stress. A chef at an up-and-coming restaurant, she works long, demanding hours, and she doesn’t want or need a relationship. But every now and then, she likes to let off some steam under the covers with a willing partner. The night Jake and Harper hook up is only meant to be a one-time deal. But when they realize they have connections they hadn’t expected--not to mention a chemistry that is downright explosive--they decide that being friends with hot benefits makes perfect sense. After all, it’s only sex, right?

Derek resists Tasha’s help, but it turns out she’s just as stubborn as he is. Her passion and determination give him hope not only for his broken body . . . but also for his heart and his future.

Scheme of Maneuver

Owen Hughes is an enigma among his friends. He’s a man of few words, and although he enjoys his share of fun with women, he’s never found anyone worth making an effort to pursue. With all of his friends now married or in committed relationships, Owen feels like a lone wolf, the last man standing. He’s not sure if that makes him a hero or a loser. And then he meets Jacey. This sassy ray of sunshine is unlike any woman Owen’s ever known. She’s full of life, eager to embrace her next adventure . . . and when she decides that next adventure is Owen, her pursuit of him is relentless. For the first time ever, Owen has found a woman he’ll move heaven and earth to win. He’s fallen hard. There’s just one small problem: Jacey is the younger sister of one of his best friends. The last man standing is about to fall . . . hard. And the undeniable heat between Owen and Jacey will make every repercussion worth all the trouble.

#Review: Ashes by Steven Manchester #AdultBooks


Summary:
Middle-aged brothers Jason and Tom Prendergast thought they were completely done with each other. Perceived betrayal had burned the bridge between them, tossing them into the icy river of estrangement. But life and death has a robust sense of irony, and when they learn that their cruel father has died and made his final request that they travel together across the country to spread his ashes, they have no choice but to spend a long, long car trip in each other s company. It s either that or lose out on the contents of the envelope he s left with his lawyer. The trip will be as gut-wrenching as each expects it to be . . . and revealing in ways neither of them is prepared for.

At turns humorous, biting, poignant, and surprisingly tender, ASHES puts a new spin on family and dysfunction with a story that is at once fresh and timelessly universal."


My review:
Steven Manchester is by far one of my favorite authors. His newest book, Ashes, did not disappoint and was exactly what I would expect to come from this brilliant author.

This tells the story of two men, brothers, who couldn't lead more different lives. Both must come together to lay their estranged father's ashes to rest. The story is a rollercoaster ride with a cross-country trip that could either make or break the two of them. Along the way, they discover heartbreak, loss, and reconciliation that made this reader's head swim.

This book was a tough read for me because I could fully relate to the characters. I lost my Dad, although a good man, unlike the "Dad" in the book, six years ago (as of this review). I traveled to lay his ashes in, ironically, a similar place as the characters did in the book.

However, it is the author's weaving of words that made me continue to read. This book certainly made me laugh and cry. He is a master and I highly recommend this excellent book! 5 stars!

Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book.  The review here is 100% my own and may differ from yours. ~M.M. aka Naila Moon
