Synopsis

Once Rose Fisher makes a decision, that’s it. End of story.

 Like when her ex, Patrick, dumped her out of the blue, then showed up with a super hot, tatted up sex kitten on his arm. Then it was over for good. The end. Poof. Dead to her. Except he was everywhere — down the hall, at the bar with their friends, worming his way into her dreams.

 But with their friends paired off, they’re left alone more and more. Rose is determined to keep him friendzoned — doesn’t matter that he stares at her with a smolder that drops all panties in a ten foot radius. She’s over him, and she’ll prove it by getting back into the dating game, Patrick be damned.

 Patrick Evans is no stranger to consequences. When your mother walks out, your dad drifts away. When you leave home, you’re on your own. And when you run away from the girl you love, you lose her. He finally has an opportunity to rebuild the bridge he burned, and it’s not one he’ll take for granted. But he’ll have to fight for her, even if it hurts. Even if it means he’ll walk away brokenhearted. Because deep down, he knows that she’s it for him.

 The trick will be to get her to admit she feels it too.

About the Author


Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life -- a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can't forget that. She's also been a mom; she has three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She's been a wife; even though she's certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She's also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she's been drinking whiskey. Her favorite word starts with f and ends with k.



From roots in Houston, to a seven year stint in Southern California, Staci and her family ended up settling somewhere in between and equally north, in Denver. They are new enough that snow is still magical. When she's not writing, she's sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.

The son of darkness is all grown up...
James is a Guardian. He is tasked with protecting the most important person in his world. For eight years he has done his job without complaint, but he has grown tired of living under the shadow of a father who is responsible for the most unimaginable violence and destruction his world has ever known.

Ainsley is at a loss for what to do with her life. She hates her two dead end jobs and the family who betrayed her. She has resigned herself to living one day at a time, but she longs for an escape from her lonely life.

When Ainsley finds James in her bed, their two lives and worlds collide. They may have both found exactly what they need, but the darkness James has been running from his whole life has just caught up.


My Review:
Forged in Ice, the followup book to Forged in Stone, has quickly become a top favorite book of mine for 2016. That's an easy statement to make when you are as enamored with the characters as I seem to be. James quickly became a dark hero who I couldn't seem to get enough of in Forged in Stone. In Forged in Ice I loved seeing the changes in James that I hadn't been able to see in it's entirity in Forged in Stone. James's character was softer in the sense that he showed more emotions espically towards Ainsley. Even Talon had picked up on the changes James's was displaying. Scoffing at the thought of how insanely in love he was and calling it out for it. I do want to see more of Talon in the next book (release date unkown), I'm hoping he will be eating his words on the audacity for one's ability to fall in love. I will say the Dire wolves were quite a shock for me, I was not expecting Hunter to be in the story line, nonetheless I was excited to see more character appearances from the Dire Wolves series by Alyssa.
Forged In Ice is hands down a FIVE star book read. I am anxious to see what books Alyssa brings us this year that leave us wanting more!

book blurb
“Some guys call, some date, and some guys, they might even get married.

But, sweetheart, I ain’t any of those guys...” ~ Zeke Declan

Every girl in Galveston County knows about Zeke Declan’s rules and has agreed to them or is considering them.

Rule #1 Don’t call him. He’ll call you.

Rule #2 He doesn’t date.

Rule #3 No sleepovers.

Rule #4 Absolutely, no virgins.

When a couple friends talk me into going back to their hometown in the Bayou for the summer and challenge me to break “the best damn lay in Galveston County” along with every single one of his ridiculous rules, I’m confident that I can get the job done. I’m no stranger to men. I have five older brothers. I’m a teacher and I’m used to being around rebellious teenagers. However, Zeke Declan is definitely not someone that I could have prepared for. He’s not a testosterone-fueled, immature boy. He’s a confident, arousing, playful, and mind-melting man. But, behind that sexy charming smile, I know he’s hiding a secret. And, in order to break him, I’m going to need to find out what it is...

Kelly Gendron

Kelly’s motto ~ "Bad boys, give 'em a little time and experience, and they will evolve into misbehaving men!" And what hot-blooded woman doesn’t want a naughty, all grown up bad boy?

Kelly Gendron is the author of the TroubleMaker series, Breaking the Declan Brothers series, and a few other romantic suspense novels.

When she's not writing steamy, blush producing romances, she's out meeting new people while representing a group of reputable nursing facilities. You can find Kelly in a quiet suburb, somewhere between Buffalo and Niagara Falls. If you Google her, she’ll pop up there too. And, please do find her. Kelly loves to hear from her readers, and meeting new people.

My Review:

 The third book in the Breaking the Declan Brothers was one that did not disappoint. I genuinely liked the first two books in the series but this one seems to have made an even bigger impression on me than any other Kelly Gendron's books. Full of emotions and anxiousness I so wanted this book to have a happy ending from the very beginning. For most readers they can get a sense of whether the book would be a good suit for their tastes. I happen to be the type of person that when I read the synopsis for Zeke on Goodreads (see link below) I knew I wanted a happy ending. For a man who considers himself emotionally damaged to find the one girl who would be worth the risk of giving up the manwhore (excuse my french ;) lifestyle and overcome his dark and tragic past. I LIVE and breathe for those types of reads. 

“Some guys call, some date, and some guys, they might even get married. But, sweetheart, I ain’t any of those guys...” ~ Zeke Declan
(This is the first line of the blurb on Goodreads... Tell me this doesn't give you some feels!) 

 Zeke for all intense and purposes will be the star of my dreams for weeks to come. Underneath the tough, sexy, and quite frankly a big softie in the heart, was a man well deserving of love. Just so happens the right woman was under his nose all along. Lurlene is a character that I was not expecting. She was a good girl to the core but had a way of letting life become dull and uninteresting, that is until Zeke brought out the sex kitten in her he knew was there all along. The chemistry between Zeke and Lurlene was an inferno the heart and a tingling sensation to all the right parts!

The storyline was fascinating from beginning to end and I can say this has become one of my top 2016 reads thus far!

Thank you to Kelly Gendron & Book Enthusiast Promotions for the chance to read and review an ARC copy it was a delightful read indeed!
