Ice Cream at Carrington’s – Alexandra Brown

The bit on the back:

The third book in the delightful series set in Carrington’s Department Store.

Georgie Hart and Carrington’s Department Store have got the world at their feet. Since a reality TV series put them both on the map, life has been amazing! Carrington’s profits are in the pink, Georgie has carved herself a place in the nation’s heart and her romance with Tom, the store’s boss, has finally blossomed.

Now summertime has come to Mulberry-on -Sea and Georgie is in great demand. The town is holding a big summer festival and she and her mates from Carrington’s are planning on making sure that Mulberry puts on the show of its life!

But Georgie is about to get the offer of a lifetime – one that is just too good to turn down and something that will test her loyalties to their limits… Will Georgie be able to pull off it off once again, or has her luck finally run out?

My opinion:

This is definitely my FAVE out of the Carrington series. Alexandra’s writing is passionate, funny, warm, sweet and really refreshing. I couldn’t put this book down!!! It’s just FABULOUS!!!! Find the whole review here: Ice Creams at Carrington's Review

Tied Up With Love – Amelia Thorne

The bit on the back:

‘We’re from KMW. Do exactly as you’re told and you won’t get hurt...'

Being grabbed off the street, blind folded, tied up and thrown into a van was not what Izzy expected to happen when she stepped out the door that morning. But when an accidental kidnapping at the hands of the sexy Ethan Chase and his 'Kidnap My Wife' sexual fantasy business leads to just that, Izzy seizes the chance to turn her misfortune into a brilliant new job opportunity…

Since then, life has been one big tangle of new client meetings, fake kidnapping pick-ups, and handling the temperamental, but drop dead gorgeous 'bad boy' Mr Chase. But, as liberating as being tied up in Ethan's life is, Izzy knows the time is fast approaching when she must make some decisions and take charge of her future. The only question is: will Ethan allow himself to be a part of it?

My opinion:

An INCREDIBLE story full of love, passion, heart, emotions and much more. I couldn’t put this amazing book down. The characters are perfectly well lined out and they had a unique chemistry. The writing is very gripping, magical, passionate, vivid, spellbinding, emotional and authentic. Amelia is such a talented and gifted author, who manages to create wonderful and authentic world.
