Blog Tour: Finding Resolution By Natalie Gayle



Finally, Dr. Jasmine Carter (Jazz) was getting her shot at taking the lead on one of the Centre’s highly covert operations. Great, wonderful, a dream come true even—you’d think. Well, that was until Mr. Tall, Dark, and Broody—Quade Roston, her fellow Centre co-worker—was assigned to be her partner.

For the last twelve months, these two had been at war. In fact, they’d elevated trading verbal barbs to the level of an international sport. For all the antagonism, the chemistry between them was just as strong. They both knew it—their teammates knew it. But what the hell were they going to do about it?

Simple—Jazz issues a challenge to Quade that she thinks he’ll never accept nor live up to.

Then their seemingly straightforward assignment to investigate a few cases of a mystery illness suddenly morphs into something much more deadly. Jazz finds herself the unknowing target in the middle of a bikie war. Now she’s dealing with threats from all corners. But maybe, just maybe, the biggest threat will be to her heart.

If you have been paying attention to the blog posts, I reviewed the first three books of this series and posted my reviews yesterday.  The series at first had me wondering if I would even like it, but with each book I liked them each more and more.  Finding Resolution has kept with the trend and once again I really liked this book.  There is just something about this series that has me going back for more.  Maybe it’s that uniqueness the series has, or maybe it is the banter and sexiness between characters.  Whatever it is I just can’t get enough.  This is a perfect example of how giving a book or in this instance a series a chance even when you aren’t really sure can open your eyes to some really great books.


I want you all to read this series so I am not going to go into a lot of detail in this review but I will say this.  We have been waiting for Jazz and Quade’s story since book one and it did not disappoint!  The back and forth between these two is hilarious at times, the sex is smoking hot, and the action will keep you on the edge of your seat.  Take my word you do not want to miss out on this series.





 


EXCERPT

Excerpt

A few minutes later, she pulled her coffee from under the machine when the front door opened. Quade walked in, looking all sexy and macho in his jogging gear. Or more accurately—his lack thereof. He wore only loose athletic shorts. His magnificent body was bare. The discarded shirt was tucked into the waistband of his shorts and trailed behind. In his hands, he juggled a couple of large bakery bags and the smell of warm butter croissants filled her nostrils. Croissants were an absolute favorite of hers. More brownie points for Mr. Roston this morning. “Hey, sexy lady—you sleep well?” His deep and low voice immediately made her hot for him. “I just woke up. You been out long?” “I headed out around five.” “Five! That’s so early.” “You know we don’t need to sleep much, Jazz. I got about two or three hours. That’s fine. I was feeling restless so I headed out.” “I’m surprised you didn’t wake me.” She gave him a very suggestive look. “Don’t worry—I thought about it long and hard.” Two could play at innuendos, it seemed. “Why didn’t you do something about it then?” “Because I figured you needed the sleep. As it is, you’ve only have a couple more hours than me. You need more.” Jazz tried to keep her heart under control at his concern. “I wouldn’t want you to be tired and bitchy.” Her temper sprang to life. Ah—she should have known. He just couldn’t help it. Just when she thought he was being sweet, he went and ruined it. “I don’t get bitchy.” Quade paused from unloading the bakery bags on the table. “You sure about that?” “Absolutely.” “Well, I guess this is another one of those areas that we’ll have to agree to disagree.” “What the hell are you talking about?” “I thought it was straightforward? We’re talking about you being bitchy when you don’t get enough sleep.” He was so frustrating. “And how would you know anyway? This is the only time we’ve spent the night together.” “I’ve spent the last twelve months observing you from a distance. I know more about you than you think.” “Well, that may be the case but I’m not bitchy.” “Alright then, you’re not bitchy. Just incredibly hot when you’re out of sorts.” “You think I’m hot when I’m grouchy?” “I do, and you just admitted you get grouchy!” Ahh! He was a pain in her backside. A very sexy one but a pain in the arse nonetheless. “You are a very strange and annoying man.” She huffed, trying not to get pulled too quickly into an argument. “No doubt about that, but that’s why you find me irresistible.” A cheeky grin turned up the corner of his mouth. Was she really having this conversation? Jazz placed the two cups of coffee she’d made on the table. “Who says I find you irresistible?” She stood back, hands on her hips; her eyes flashed, looking for a fight. Almost quicker than her eyes could see, his hand snapped out and caught her around the wrist and pulled her in tight to his body. Before she could utter a word, he’d taken a seat at the table with her safely perched on his lap. His lips crashed down on hers as her protest started to escape. His tongue thrust inside and suddenly she was lost to all rational thought—her body just responded to his demands. Their kiss started at scorching hot and kept climbing till it topped out at what felt like nuclear fusion. One of his hands tangled in her hair and held her head in place for him to plunder and the other caressed her back, ribs, and finally settled on her breast. He pulled away slightly. “Mmm, you smell of sex, me, and that spicy body wash you use. Delicious—I love it.” His voice was little more than a low rumbly growl and goose bumps shot up her arms.

Release Blitz: Life To My Flight By Lani Lynn Vale



You’re The Life

Cleo’s a Pararescueman for the U.S. Air Force. When a PJ is called, it’s because everyone else has said no. It’s one of the most dangerous jobs in the entire military, but also one of the most rewarding. It’s the reason he doesn't form relationships. He’s seen his teammates divorce one by one, and he doesn't want to do that to a woman. Especially one that he’s supposed to love. However, nowhere in his grand scheme did he plan for the force that was Rue.

To My

Rue’s life has been rough. What she needs is a break. One that’ll distract her from the fact that she’s drowning in responsibility. It comes in the form of a dark and dangerous biker who has a habit of putting his life on the line. He gives her the world, and she holds on with both hands, knowing that he only wants to be friends. Or does he?

Flight

Thinking she knows what’s best, she pushes him too far, causing his control to take flight, and Cleo to disappear before the dust settles. One night of passion turns into a year of heartbreak as Rue tries to find the ability to move on from Cleo. He was pretty clear with his wishes, and they didn't include her.

Cleo’s not through with Rue, though. Not even a little bit. She’ll be his. All it’ll take is a little bit of…persuasion.

Okay it’s official, I am completely and totally hooked when it comes to The Hero’s Of Dixie Wardens MC series and Life To My Flight increased my loved for not just this series but the author as well.  Each book just continues to get better and better and touches you in some way.  They always leave a huge smile on my face and have me wishing that the next book would hurry up and release already just so I can read more of these guys and the sassy women in their lives.

Cleo and Rue’s relationship had started as a friendship and bloomed into more, but then Cleo left Rue behind and not only did Rue lose her best friend, she also lost the man she fell in love with.  When he came back into her life she really didn’t want anything to do with him because he had hurt her, very bad, and even thought his reasons for leaving like he did were his own, he knew he needed to win back her trust and heart.  There was more in their way then just Cleo hurting Rue, there was the issue of his bitchy ass sisters.  Don’t even get me started on these bitches, all I will say is they all needed throat and vag punches, multiple times.


Life To My Flight has everything we have come to expect from this series.  An alpha male, a sassy and funny female, a story that will make you laugh, cry, get angry and leaves you wanting more.  I am so happy that I signed up to review this series, because I found one that I know hasn’t let me down yet.


Life To My Flight Excerpt © Lani Lynn Vale 2015

“Cleo...I don’t have any kids.  That kid is Cody’s baby,” she yelled back.
“Cody’s baby?” I asked, confused.
Hadn’t I heard from Silas that Cody was gay?
She raised her eyebrows up.  “Yeah, they went to Egypt just a few months ago and adopted her.”
That stopped me in my tracks.
Then I felt immensely stupid.  “Fuck, I’m sorry.  I shouldn’t have come over this morning.  I had a bad night, and I just jumped to conclusions.  I just wanted to see you.”
She blinked, surprised at my apology.
“It’s okay,” she said softly.  “But maybe you should go home.  Come back some time when you’re thinking clearly.”
“I...I don’t want to go home,” I admitted.
“Why?” She asked. “What happened?”
I sat down on the edge of her couch and let my head fall into my hands.  “I had two patients die last night.  Two separate accidents, but no less severe than the other.  One was a two year old who’d touched a live wire that had fallen in her backyard.  The other was a young girl who suffered third degree burns in a motor vehicle accident.”
Both cases were still just as fresh in my brain as they were four and a half hours ago when they’d happened one after the other.
“I’m sorry to hear that, Cleo,” she said softly.  “But, that still doesn’t help me answer why you’re here at all.  You left me, remember?  Why now?  Why, when I just got my life back in order?  Do you know how long it’s been since I cried through the night?  Two goddamn weeks.  Then one freaking look at you, and it’s all right there again.  I can feel everything.  It’s tearing me apart,” she whispered with tears filling her voice.
Her head fell, hiding her face so I didn’t see the tears.
I swallowed thickly.
“I didn’t want to die and leave you alone,” I rasped.
She finally looked up, giving me her tear stained blue eyes.
“I would’ve followed you anywhere.  Done anything for you.  All you had to do was tell me what to do.  I would’ve waited.  I would’ve been able to live my life knowing you’d be coming back to me…if you were able,” she cried.
I closed my eyes.  The pain and terror that had grown for the past year all compounded to that final moment.  The exact instant in time that I knew I had to get out.
“I almost died over there,” I grated.  “The only thing that kept me alive was knowing you were here for me to come back to you.  Whether you thought that you were mine or not, I was always yours. And I always will be.”
Her quiet crying turned to a giant sob, and I gathered her into my arms, burying my face into her neck.
“What will it take for you to give me a chance?” I asked.
My heart froze in my chest, and then started to pound double time.
“I’ll give you anything.  Everything.  You want me to quit, I’ll do it.  You want me to leave the MC, I’ll do it.  It’ll hurt, but I’ll do it.  Just give me a chance.  You don’t have to decide anything right now.  But just let me spend some time with you.  I’ll prove to you I’ve changed.  I won’t freak out, I promise,” I pleaded.
She listened to my explanation, and I could tell it wasn’t enough by the dead in her eyes.
“I can’t.  I just can’t,” she said and stepped away.  “You can hang with me tonight, but after that, I want you to leave me alone.”
“But you’ll give me tonight?” I asked.

She nodded.  “I’ll give you tonight.”






I’m a married mother of three. My kids are all under 5, so I can assure you that they are a handful. I’ve been with my paramedic husband now for ten years, and we’ve produced three offspring that are nothing like us. I live in the greatest state in the world, Texas.
