(BookR) Fantasy Man by Barbara Meyers

Author Donna June Cooper’s review:


Fantasy Man by Barbara Meyers is a very sexy, suspenseful and enjoyable read involving an overprotected young lady, the mob, some cute ferrets, and a fun fling with “my brother’s best friend” that threatens to turn into something entirely different. And Reif (love the name!) is my ideal male protagonist – a guy who doesn’t tuck neatly into any particular “Alpha/Beta/Gamma/Omega” niche. Fantasy Man is a steamy, fun-filled read, particularly if you enjoy best friend/little sister romances (and ferrets!)

Author Melanie Stanford’s review:

Fantasy Man was a super quick and fun read that kept me turning pages when I should’ve been doing other stuff! Reif was my favorite type of hero- a good guy with old fashioned values, but still tough and sexy. But Quinn really made this book for me. She was so outspoken (without always being snarky, which gets annoying after awhile IMO), and knew exactly what she wanted and went about getting it. She was often fearless- the kind of character I love to read because I’m not like that at all. The tension slowly built the first half, then went crazy the second- I couldn’t put it down. I also really loved the antagonist and his ferrets- Meyers did a great job, no one-dimensional villains here. In all a great read, a definite recommend for romance lovers.

“This is an unexpected gem… the two of them are well suited to face it all together, which was the enjoyable thing about this book… keeping the romance on a slow burn throughout… it’s highly satisfying…”

I must say that I was surprised, and happily so, that for a romance novel featuring a sexy sheriff’s deputy, we didn’t have any sex scenes featuring handcuffs. Mighty refreshing…The fact that Lesley was a strong-willed business woman meant that she had no problem making the first move.

Should you read it? Let me put it to you this way, after reading this book I was intrigued enough by the characters that I would consider going back and reading the books that came before. It seems like an interesting series, and I just might have to start from the beginning!

What a Rich Woman Wants by Barbara Meyers

Fresh Fiction Reviews
Reviewed by Kay Quintin
Posted May 5, 2015

“A tangled web follows Lesley and Niko as they try to come to sort their true feelings and how it will affect their positions. Sizzling sex enhances WHAT A RICH WOMAN WANTS while being infused with emotion, mystery and love for an innocent child.

WHAT A RICH WOMAN WANTS is Book four in The Braddock Brotherhood and the first I have had the pleasure of reading by Barbara Myers and in this series. I was definitely caught up in the mystery surrounding the child and how expertly Ms. Myers kept the reader turning page after page to uncover the truth. This sexy cop and the high-powered executive know how to heat up the sheets.”

What Other Authors Said About A MONTH FROM MIAMI:

“Barbara Meyers has written a heart-warming story of love and new beginnings as her endearing, smalltown heroine searches for success and finds it in unexpected places.”                                    —Jasmine Cresswell, USA Today Bestselling author of the Raven Trilogy

“A Month From Miami will capture your heart as well as your funny bone. Kaylee Walsh, is as sassy as they come, and the South Florida sun isn’t the only thing producing heat when Rick Braddock arrives on the scene with his precocious daughter, Molly. Jewel thieves, FBI agents, and the search for family and home round out the perfect summer read. Meyers will make you believe in love, even while she’s making you laugh.”

–Kristy Kiernan, author of Catching Genius

“Barbara Meyers has written a warm, fun story about a woman’s perogative to change her mind–and her heart!”

Simply put, A Month From Miami is a gum-smacking good time. Under a veneer of stilettos and excessive bubble gum chewing, Kaylee Walsh is a girl with a heart of gold. But it’s Rick Braddock who discovers this diamond in the rough and has to help her realize what she truly wants out of life. Barbara Meyers has created a fun-filled ride with exceptional characters – each headed to destinations unknown.

A reader  comment:  “I read your Braddock Brotherhood series this week–I was deeply touched many times, especially by “A Forever Kind of Guy.”

Review excerpt from Long and Short Reviews:

“…Built on a platform of past regrets, this emotional story has full power to draw the reader in. With characters that are complex, believable, and likable, this is both a plot and character driven story. There are so many touches of real life situations that it’s hard not to somehow relate to one of the characters situations. Hayley and Ray have a long way to go in putting their fears and pasts behind them, but the journey towards that goal is one not to be missed.

What’s not to like about a happily ever after for two people that have been through hell and back, but yet manage to stay strong in the meantime? If you still believe in forever, then don’t miss this gut wrenching, intense book about life, loss, and love in A Forever Kind of Guy.”

Barbara Meyers loves small towns, and she portrays small town life and love very lovingly.  She has the trick of endearing the reader to her characters with their ordinary human decency in a way that elevates it to real heroism.
In A Forever Kind of Guy she brings us a story in which neither the mysteries and lies of the powerful and sophisticated urban world nor the ugliness of criminal gang life can overpower small town love.  This is a very reassuring world, full of warmth and genuineness and the true power of love.
Jennifer Stevenson, author of Fools Paradise


Long and Short Reviews

Excerpt:  “This is a great contemporary romance full of heart, a bit of heat, and the strong ties to family. …The First Time Again is emotionally charged, sexy, and fun. If you’re looking for a great read, I recommend this story. Yes, it’s book three in a series, but it’s definitely a good standalone. I enjoy this author’s work and will easily seek out more stories from Ms. Meyers.”
