Series Book Blitz! Love Happens Series By Jodi Watters

 Jodi Watters’ Love Happens series have brand new covers!

Next to Me and Wrong Then Right are both standalone full-length novels with no cliffhangers but have reoccurring characters.

The past is hot on her heels.

On the run and out of options, a desperate Ali Ross knows two things for sure...
Her ugly past will eventually catch up to her. And when it does, she'll need a strong and loyal man to help her face the danger head on or risk losing everything. Including her freedom.

The girl is hard on his heart. 

Looking for love and having no luck, former Army Ranger Sam Gleeson knows two things for sure...

His mysterious new neighbor is wreaking havoc on his heart. And her sweet and seductive charm is playing a captivating game with his head. Despite her secrets. 

Hiding from a violent ex-husband, Ali knows the law can't help her. She also knows someone like Sam can. Fearing for her life, she hatches a shamelessly impulsive plan that's as old as time. She's willing to do whatever it takes to ensure her safety, and that includes doing the sexy soldier next door. But when their searing chemistry blazes so hot it burns them both, Ali's hidden agenda seals an unimaginable fate.

Ali Ross is looking for a man to protect her from decisions that threaten her from her past and finds the perfect person in her next door neighbor, Sam-if she can only trick him into doing her bidding. I normally don't enjoy stories that start out based on a lie, no matter how well intended, but Ali really pulled at me and made me understand where she was coming from. She seduces Sam, which was part of her plan all along, even if he's unaware of said plan. What Ali was unprepared for was the fact that she might develop feelings for her protector that were much more than she bargained for.

I appreciated seeing a strong hero in Sam, and enjoyed watching him stumble into Ali and try to persuade her into more of a relationship between the two of them. The author definitely made me feel Sam's frustrations, happiness and anger with Ali and made me feel that each emotion was justified. The pacing of this book worked well. There were parts that made me laugh and parts that made me bite my lip with worry. Overall, I enjoyed the journey of this book.

Hope Coleson is having a doozy of a day.
Wrongly terminated from her menial waitressing job? Check
Abruptly evicted from her run down apartment with prime views of a graffiti painted dumpster? Double check.
Thoroughly bedded by a smoking hot man with smooth moves and zero communication skills? Triple X check.
And it doesn't end there. Estranged family members are showing up like bad pennies, her precious savings account has been wiped clean, and she may or may not have a stalker.
So what's a desperate girl to do, but try her hand at love?

Retired Navy SEAL Beckett Smith doesn't make mistakes.
Yes, he drinks his way to the bottom of a beer bottle or six, on one too many occasions.
Sure, he's a well-educated man who prefers to communicate at a level only slighter higher than your average poodle.
And yeah, he lost his legendary control and slept with his boss's sister, stripping her of more than just her clothes before making a quick getaway.

Only it doesn't end there. Isolation isn't providing the peace he's seeking, the boss he considers a friend is ready to hand him a beat down and a pink slip, and the girl he can't stop thinking about is suddenly parked on his doorstep. So what's a jaded guy to do, but take a chance on love?

This was my second book by Jodi Watters, and second in this particular series of hers. I enjoyed the first one and loved this one even more. I liked getting a brief glimpse of the hero and heroine from the first book and the fact that they didn't completely overshadow the couple in this story. While it is not necessary to read book one before reading this book I think it would be helpful to do so.

Hope Coleson is a mystery of a woman, hell bent on making it in life based on her own terms. Throughout the book we get glimpses into her past, both through her eyes and her brother’s, that help the reader see why Hope is the person she is. I rooted for her, cheered for her and laughed with her from the start. She is full of sass and sweetness when dealing with the hero, Beck, and I couldn't help but chuckle during some of their interactions.

Beck himself is a flawed man, and Jodi Watters pulls no punches in her writing him. He has issues from his past that he is struggling to move on from and is in no way shape or form looking for anything remotely like love when he meets Hope at a wedding. I cried for Beck and wanted him so desperately to have some comfort in his life, and boy did Hope deliver. This book also hints at the story of the third hero in this series, Ash, who happens to be Hope's brother. Getting hints of what is to come in no way detracted from the story of Beck and Hope, but it definitely has me eager for book number 3 in this series.

Author Bio

My love for steamy romance began when I was in junior high. A friend and I came upon a dumpster of discarded paperbacks behind our small town's Ben Franklin store. The covers were missing and each book was torn in two, split right down the center of the spline, but I found that to be no obstacle as I scanned each page looking for any love or lust words—and curse words, too. It wasn't long before I was scouring the public library and our local discount store, devouring anything labeled romance. I said a tearfully grateful goodbye to Judy Bloom as Jackie Collins began ruling my world.

I live with my high school sweetheart turned husband and our three, beloved DVR's, in the desert Southwest. Otherwise known as the surface of the sun during the summer months.

My life long goals are to think before I speak, smile more and swear less, and actually weigh what my driver's license states I do. And I have been contemplating a hair color change for the last decade. I'm thinking red.
