Cynthia Eden where do you get all these wonderful ideas! Where ever they come from please keep ‘em coming! If you loved Broken the first book of the series you’ll love Twisted just as much; it is named exactly as it should because it is one twisted situation with one twisted villain.

Book Review: Back in the Game by Lori Wilde

New York Times Best-selling author, Lori Wilde has once again done a beautiful job in weaving a realistic characters and suspenseful characters. I could not put the novel down at all until I finished the entire story. As a reader, I had to know what happened. Back in the Game  is by far the greatest romance novel for adults. I was taken away by the stunning story of the main character, Breeanne Carlyle. She has gone through life battling her way through. She thinks of herself as a plain nobody. Until fate intervenes and brings her little school girl crush, aka former ex-pitcher, Rowdy Blanton. The man was beyond handsome. Just looking at him at the estate sale had Breeanne glued to her spot. She couldn’t move even if she wanted too, and then he winks at her! Breeanne doesn’t get a taste of what life has to offer until…
