Coming to Hale - Book Review

The only time she trusted someone with her heart, she was just a girl; he betrayed her and left her humiliated. Since then, Lorali Bennett has let that moment in time dictate her life. 

Ian Hale, sexy as sin business mogul, has never had more than a passing interest in any particular woman, until a chance encounter with Lorali, leaves a lasting mark on him. 

Their fast paced romance is one for the record books, but what will happen when Ian’s secrets come to light? Especially when those secrets will cost her everything she spent years trying to rebuild. 

This is a standalone contemporary novel. The next book in the Hale series is Alexa and Garrett’s story: Begging for Hale. 

Recommended for readers 18 and up due to strong language and explicit sexual content. 

4 stars

Lorali is an up and coming journalist. Ok maybe not, but she is a journalist, just to the dead of Denver, Colorado. Her boss gives her a chance to swing with the living, sending her to a high society charity event, where she runs into Ian Hale - again. This time, he makes a move, only to have her walk away.

Ian Hale is one of Denver's top sexiest singles. Land him and you land a God! He is fascinated by Lorali. She is beautiful, sassy, and smart. He can't stop thinking, no lusting about her and wants her. Tracking her down was easy, getting her into his bed easy, but getting her to open up and allow him into her heart, hard. Lorali makes Ian work for it. She's not handing her heart over on a silver platter. No way!

I liked the story, but I wanted a better back story for Lorali. It was sad, but it wasn't life altering, at least not to me. Maybe I'm jaded by life, but it seemed childish. What I liked about the book, it had me hooked from the first chapter. How Ian and Lorali interact, they are like magnets. Always a pulling force towards each other. Crushing! 

The characters, event the supporting cast are well written and I can't wait to read the next book in the series! Bring it on!!

Erotic Romance   #InnocentEyesTour Add to your Goodreads TBR Synopsis: "If he's gross, I'm bailing."  That's what I said to my supposed best friend when she asked me to take her place. A blind date, she said. What harm could it do?  He was charming. Beautiful. God's finest creation. He wined me and dined me. Made me do things I'd never before dreamt of in the bedroom. It was perfect. Dangerous. Arousing.  But Jenny didn’t tell me the full story. She didn’t tell me about the debt she owed. And now Quinn Cane wants his money's worth, and he’s going to make me pay whatever way he can.  “A debt needs to be paid.” The woman who came to meet me didn’t owe me money. I could tell by her innocent eyes.  Still, the debt will be paid either way. She was something to play with and use as I saw fit, but something about Emily Brooks made me want to keep her. So she became my dirt…

Well Played by JS Scott and Ruth Cardello


Graham is my brother's best friend. He’s always been my protector and my confident because he accepts me the way I am—and not many do. I can’t imagine not having him in my life.
Our weekend together was supposed to be a celebration. I graduated from college, Graham got engaged and signed with a pro football team, and my brother landed his dream job. It should have been the best time of our lives.

Except that the weekend started with me walking in on Graham's fiancée going down on my brother.

I complicated the situation by having sex with Graham after that, but I wanted to comfort him and, damn, when I saw desire in his eyes—for me—I couldn’t say no. I’ve wanted him for so long.

Now he doesn’t want to see me. He says he has a darker side he needs to protect me from.

Where do we go from here? Do I try to pretend to be his friend again or push him to open up to me and possibly lose him forever?


Sleeping with one of my best friends was not exactly a brilliant idea. It made…
