My very first review book thanks to the ladies at


James and Jonathan Keller are identical twins who both own and work on their family ranch. They share everything from clothes to a strawberry allergy but never a woman. In comes Tabitha Lambert, recently divorcee from DC who is an agent for the Bureau of Land Management. Tabitha visits the ranch to talk to the brothers about a Wild Horse program and the brothers were immediately “hooked”. They find out that Tabitha loves to gamble so they lure her into making a Wager. Tabitha, James and Jonathan are on the ride of their life while dealing with a money-hungry ex, a greedy Casino Manager and a “shady” cop disguised as a friend!

I found the story line to be a bit predictable…….Ed, the ex-husband is wants to get back with Tabitha for the inheritance he knows she has coming. Phyllis, the Casino Manager, would like to lead James Keller down the isle some day yet she has a hard time figuring out which of the brothers is James. Derek Hamilton the local cop and long time acquaintance of the Kellers; feels that their land belonged to his family and everything they have should be his. I empathized with Derek as he is obviously mentally challenged. In the meantime, Tabitha is falling head over heels for James and Jonathan and their Ménage à Trois will set the reader on fire each and every time. This book is definitely not for the faint-hearted and is a “wild ride” from beginning to end.

Just a Dream, Aliyah Burke


Caden Bradshaw has vowed never again to get involved with a military man. Having lost her Navy husband to war, she knows she couldn't bear to suffer another loss. Her determination fades quickly on meeting handsome Gunnery Sergeant Liam Quinn.When Liam spies Caden's car stopped in a snowstorm, he's instantly struck by the dark beauty. A whirlwind courtship brings the promise of a lasting relationship, but Caden's stubborness proves to be a roadblock. Can Liam convince Caden that his love for her is real, and not just a dream?


I loved the characters in this book and thought they were good for each other. Caden is very sweet but vulnerable. She is scared to give her heart to another man while mourning her husband who died in the line of duty. Liam (Gunnery Sergeant with the United States Marine Corps) has the hots for Caden and hopes to break through her barrier. I think the lesson learned here is that life is not guaranteed so if you get a chance at love…… with it.
