I’m not a philosophical kind of bloke, but I know something about luck. A childhood on the wrong side of advantage will teach you that. It’s all a matter of chance. It’s both your circumstances and the chances you take. So I’ve always been a gambler and a ladies man — they love me and I love them. Now I’ve found one like no other — an American, Allison Wright. When I met her, the fates were on my side, but too soon I learned the odds were against me.

Blog Tour: Elena Reviews: Compromising Positions by Mary Whitney + Giveaway

Compromising Positions Cover

The synopsis:

We weren’t supposed to be friends. We weren’t even supposed to like each other.

I’m Michael Grath. I’ll admit I was elected to Congress on my Republican family history. I was out to make a name for myself, until I met Jessie Clark, a spitfire Democrat.

She’d be my nemesis, if I could just stop thinking about her. We’ve got nothing and everything in common, and one big issue that divides us. All of this is going to land us in more than one compromising position.

And like I said, we weren’t supposed to be friends, we weren’t even supposed to like each other, and we certainly weren’t supposed to fall in love.

My review:

“I’m hopelessly in love with you. Can’t you see it?”

Politics, Law, Compromises, Love, Passion, — Compromising Positions, the new Adult Romance by Mary Whitney, is a great novel that leaves the reader wanting more. This is no surprise to me, since I’m a big fan of Mary Whitney. She’s the Author of Beside Your Heart and Disclosure of the Heart, books that I truly loved.

She proves her writing talent also in Compromising Positions, which I give my thumbs up, and I encourage you to add it to your TBR list.

Elena Reviews: Disclosure of the Heart by Mary Whitney (Beside your Heart #2)

DoTH cover

The synopsis:

Sixteen years is a long time to wait for your true love to reappear, and, anyway, Nicki Johnson couldn’t wait for the impossible to happen. Hard life lessons have taught her that fairy tales are children’s stories, and fate is cruel. Burying her hopes, she’s spent the last sixteen years focused and driven toward her career, and it’s landed her with a job at the White House with a gem of a boyfriend. But when her high school love, Adam Kincaid, walks into the White House as a BBC reporter, Nicki’s world is thrown into turmoil as she relives their past. Adam has come back for her, but has he arrived too late?

My review:

“I love you, Nicki, and it’s not simply that you’re an old flame. This is new.” When my mouth dropped open in shock, he then smiled reassuringly and said,“I love you, and as long as you know it, I don’t care who else does.”

My sweet Adam is back! Yes, because I couldn’t wait for the sequel to Beside Your Heart (of which you can find my review here) to come out! We were left with a bit of a cliffhanger at the end of the first book, and in Disclosure of The Heart Adam and Nicki take us again on the wonderful journey of their love.

Adam and Nicki had experienced the heart stopping and all consuming teenage love, but they had found themselves forced to break up, due to a series of circumstances….In Disclosure of The Heart they meet years later, and now they’re adults with prominent jobs that make them two of the most influential people around. But Nicki and Adam have both other partners in their lives now. Will sparks fly between them and will Adam be able to conquer Nicki’s heart again, like he did when they were teenagers?

Elena reviews: Beside Your Heart by Mary Whitney

BYH cover

The synopsis:

It’s an emotional story that will take the reader back to those feelings that made the late teen years such a powerful time.”

Late one night Nicki Johnson plays with emotional fire and Googles her high school love, only to find his name splashed across the British gossip columns. Back in his native England, Adam Kincaid is successful and dating a woman from an aristocratic family like his own. With a career in politics, Nicki’s no slouch, but she knows Adam is living a world away from her life.

Yet there was a time he was no farther than the next locker. Nicki will never forget their year together in high school—the year of her sister’s death, the year her mother checked out. Adam helped Nicki through suffocating grief, and she led him through a coming of age. Was it just high school, or was it something more?

New Adult Romance.

My review:

You know those books that strike a chord with you and every time you turn the page you wish you never reached the end? That’s Beside Your Heart by Mary Whitney.
