DUPLICITY by AJ Renee #BookReview

St. Fleur #3
Contemporary Romance | Interracial Romance

Everyone leaves…

Jaime Lynn has lived by that mantra all of her life. After opening a pub in St. Fleur, she begins to root herself into the town and its community, questioning the only attitude she has ever known. When Jesse interviews for the open bartending position, she knows hiring him is a bad decision she’ll make anyway. Giving in to their powerful attraction, she accepts his invitation to explore what’s between them—and is reminded that not everyone gets their happily ever after.

Haunted by the memories around his hometown of New Orleans, Jesse leaves everyone he knows and loves, hoping to find a sliver of peace. Jaime Lynn turns out to be the light to his dark, bringing Jesse away from his nightmares and back to his hopes and dreams. 

When the truth comes out, Jesse and Jaime Lynn agree to give their relationship another try. The stars finally align, guiding them onto a new path where they can leave their past behind them. 

What will they do when Jesse learns about the gift he never received but always wanted?

FINALLY, I am able to sit down and write this review!! Gosh, I finished this book what seems ages ago and I was not able to share it with you guys! Sheesh! Talk about life getting in the way!

This series keeps getting better and better! Seriously. Problems and situations seem to be getting more emotional and I am LOVING it. From the other two books in this series, I knew Jesse and Jamie Lynn had a past together, so I was curious to learn just what had happened that caused them to part ways when they so clearly loved each other. 

Jamie Lynn had her fair share of issues that made her who she was now. She was a bit closed off but she had her reasons. Very valid reasons. And Jesse? Well, his story was a bit heart-breaking. When both main characters are broken, there is a lot of room for emotional angst and if you've been reading my blog for some time now, then you know that makes me super happy! 

In order to move forward, Jesse and Jamie Lynn had to overcome a lot of insecurities and outside forces that were standing in the way of their own happily ever after. The road there was very interesting, angsty, sexy, and it had my full attention the entire time. 

Now, to say I want the next book would be an understatement. It will be Rocco's book and I am beyond intrigued! You see, AJ Renee sure loves teasing her readers!

Widower's Aura, #1

Always Mine, #2

Author to Widower’s Aura, Always Mine, Duplicity, and Finding love at the falls.... I’m a military wife and mother to three girls seven and under. Prior to these roles I lived in Florida where I attended the University of Central Florida. I received my Masters of Science in Criminal Justice and Bachelors of Science in Psychology. A decade later and I haven’t used either.

Writing a book was never a goal of mine, funny how life works out sometimes. I thought I would work for one of the many agencies that specialize in justice. Instead I decided to focus on a family once we married.

When I’m not shuttling my daughters around, you can find me at my laptop. I hope you enjoy my books as much as I enjoyed writing them.
