New Release Book Review: Sunset Sail by Shannyn Leah

Sunset Sail (The Caliendo Resort, #3)Sunset Sail by Shannyn Leah
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Sunset Sail is the third book in the Caliendo Resort series. The Caliendo resort has been working on a merger with the Cohen Cruise line and there is a three week cruise to finalize things.

Many of the sisters are on board and so are the Cohen family. Grayson the son the his father the, “Silver Fox” Brock Cohen. The Caliendo’s are a great family with siblings that protect each other and challenge each other and mostly love one another. If you haven’t started the series, you can pick it up here and then get caught up later. But you should get to know them.

Emma Caliendo is known to be set in her ways, serious and very clear about who she wants to stay clear of. Especially when he is a womanizer, has been from way back and she knew it. She remembered him and his behavior from school. She also knew that he was a tease. He keeps teasing her about them making magic together but she is very leery of the reputation that Grayson has. He finds himself more than just wanting a one night stand with her and that confuses him. When Emma finds out more about the real Grayson Cohen, she finds herself more tempted than she ever imagined. That she had already felt a pull to his handsome face and those green eyes make her even more unsteady. You will love the heat, passion and the combustion of these two people.

I love the humor that Shannyn Leah meshes into her really sizzling stories. She makes the characters more alive and she makes me want to really get to know them and hang out with them. I liked Grayson. He was broken inside, he had reason to be broken inside. He had a reason to not trust and not offer or expect forever. Emma was a girl that did not want to be hurt. She had seen what happened when people loved casually and she did not want that for herself. I love that Shannyn lets you see inside these people and love them hurts, fears and all.

I have enjoyed all the books and wonderful stories in both series. They have been showing up since the beginning and teasing us to know more about them. I was glad to see Emma get her story told. What a great book it is. This is another winning book. Deserving the 5 stars that I am capped at giving, I could have happily gone much higher.

Sunset Sail by Shannyn leah releases on June 28, 2016 and is available in paperback and in Kindle Edition at Amazon

Release Day Book Review: Sunset Rivalry by Shannyn Leah

Sunset Rivalry (The Caliendo Resort #2)Sunset Rivalry by Shannyn Leah
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have just finished reading an ARC of Sunset Rivalry on the books Release Day. I was provided the copy by Shannyn Leah in exchange for an honest review.

My honest opinion is, once again Shannyn Leah brought two wonderful, passionate and generous characters to life. The book is the 2nd in the Caliendo Resort series and the more I learn about this family the more I love them.

The Caliendo children and their mother had been ruled by Robert a very devious and cruel man. He built their family’s empire which included a resort and everything nice that money could buy. He also brought pain and secrets into their life. That was something that money couldn’t touch. Yet each book I read about this family shows what strong and compassionate people they turned out to be.

Anya is no exception. She has been missing for two years. No one knows what she is doing or where she is. When she shows back up at the resort sneaking in during the dead of night, Marc brings Quinn Barker back to the resort to find her.

Quinn was working for Robert two years ago and the family and especially Anya do not trust him. After all, he seems to be the same type of man that Robert was. What they do not know is that Quinn was out to find his own file. A file that can answer all the questions he has had for many years.

When Anya returns she is a shadow of her former self. Skin and bones and washed out. She is not happy when she sees Quinn. He had broken her heart two years earlier, how could she trust that he would not do it again.

These two people were on fire for each other. I rooted for them t find love as their common ground. To find trust and acceptance. The writing was brilliant. The story was electric. I totally enjoyed this book. There is so much involved in their lives, with surprises and excellent dialogue. Shannyn Leah really brought everything to this book and it worked out wonderfully. Another great book in a wonderful series.

Book Review: Sunset Thunder by Shannyn Leah

Sunset Thunder (The Caliendo Resort #1)Sunset Thunder by Shannyn Leah
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Violet Caliendo was a divorced wedding coordinator at her family owned resort. How could it be a problem to plan her ex-husband’s wedding with the ex-employee from the resort?

Violet felt she could do it even if that meant coming face to face with Ryder Carlex.

Ryder the playboy that Joel had used as his best man, again. Just as he had at her own wedding with Joel. Her feelings about Ryder are so intense. Joel had shared so many stories about his debauchery that disgusted her.

Ryder was wonderfully written. He is so complex and has secrets that he refuses to let come to light. He will endure any gossip and stories to keep his secrets closeted away.

The story was great. With characters that are well rounded and have minds of their own. Marc from the McAdams Sisters series has an active role in this story. He is always fun, and the family all know how to get him riled up.

Violet and Ryder keep coming together and it just keeps getting hotter and hotter for them. They only have to worry about Joel, her family, oh yeah and her kids. There are secrets that have the potential to hurt so many people. It doesn’t help that Robert Caliendo’s secret room is being invaded by the family in order to make amends. That means secrets are being brought out into the open.

Shannyn Leah has really started this new series with a bang. This book was hard to put down. It was filled with laughter, pain and love. Each facet was beautifully written.

I am now going to read Sunset Rivalry. I can’t wait to delve into this story. I can depend on Shannyn to bring me a great story to sink my teeth into.
