Book Review - The Long Journey Home (Johnson Family Legacy Book 3) by James Robinson Jr


The Long Journey Home (Johnson Family Legacy Book 3) by [Robinson, James] NEW RELEASE….
The Johnson’s—Dr. Samuel Johnson, his wife Tabitha and Samuel’s parents, Maxine and Samuel, Sr.–have had a tumultuous four-day wedding trip that would destroy most families. Tabitha makes a fool of herself trying to get Samuel’s attention at the wedding but Samuel is too busy to notice. He is having a torrid liaison with Kat, the gorgeous maid of honor half his age. After missing their flight home, the family lays waste to the Savannah Airport: unearthing dark secrets, sharing unbelievable confessions, and turning their eight-hour layover into an episode of some sleazy talk show. But, as the third story begins, Samuel and Tabitha have taken a step in the right direction. They put a patch on their differences, eschew their trip back home to Pittsburgh, and enjoy a night of hot sex in a Savanah hotel that they’ve never enjoyed before in their marriage. Tragedy will strike Maxine as Senior’s heartless actions put her over the edge. But Tabitha and Samuel will attempt to pull the entire family together once and for all…for the Long Journey Home

Our book review
It's the aftermath of the crazy and eventful wedding of their close friend, which you can read about in the delightful The Long Goodbye, although I wouldn't say it was necessary to read it, but it does give you a good feeling of the characters.   And.....we dive straight into the sexual tension and desire Samuel and Tabitha feel after their renewal of love they have found for each other after so many years of a declining marriage, after all making up is the fun part!

So much is going on, past secrets are shared, relationships torn apart, a desperate attempt of suicide, and if that's not enough, a potential threatening stalker to deal with. Yet on the plus side, years of ignoring tell tale signs of taking life for granted, being a workaholic and realizing what you really have finally come to light for Samuel through the events and the truth from his sons.  They don't believe he can change, will he prove them right or wrong?

The chaotic story is fun, crazy, a little suspenseful and filled with sexual, colorful language, not for the faint hearted.  Enjoy The Johnson's story it will certainly keep you entertained.

About the Author
Hi Everyone! James Robinson, Jr. is so formal; call me Jim. People have also referred to me as James, Jay, Jayzer, and even Jimbo. (You can thank my middle daughter for the Jimbo thing. Kids have no respect for authority these days.) I'm a sixty-year-old father of three, thirty-plus daughters and grandfather of four who has been battered by gravity unmercilessly (see Fighting the Effects of Gravity). I was late getting into the writing game. Mainly because I was busy having children and trying to keep them fed.

I have written and published most of the books that you see here since 2012. My first book, Fighting the Effects of Gravity, was a long-term project that I started long before the digital revolution. My next book, Death of a Shrinking Violet, consists of 13 essays including the memorable entry, "Damn You Sam's Club!" My latest work, a novella, is my first foray into the world of fiction. Along the way, I have managed to take home two Five-Star Readers' Favorite Reviews and become an Indie Excellence and Readers' Favorite Award finalist.

About the author
Elizabeth McKenna
Though Elizabeth McKenna's love of books reaches back to her childhood, she had never read romance novels until one Christmas when her sister gave her the latest bestseller by Nora Roberts. She was hooked from page one (actually, she admits it was the first love scene).

She had always wanted to write fiction, so she combined her love of history, romance and a happy ending to write Cera's Place and Venice in the Moonlight. Her short story, The Gypsy Casts a Spell, is available for free on her website here. She hopes you will enjoy her first contemporary romance novel, First Crush Last Love, as much as others have enjoyed her historical romances.

Elizabeth, aka Maureen Lippert, lives in Wisconsin with her understanding husband, two beautiful daughters, and a sassy Labrador. When she isn't writing, working, or being a mom, she's sleeping.

BOOK TOUR - Anything For Love by Melissa Foster The Bradens & Montgomerys (Pleasant Hill – Oak Falls)


Embracing Her Heart (The Montgomerys Book 1) by [Foster, Melissa] COMING SOON........
Discover the magic of New York Times bestseller Melissa Foster's writing, and see why millions of readers have fallen in love with the Bradens.

In Anything For Love.... After Charlotte Sterling loses her last family member, she moves to Sterling House, her family's Colorado mountain inn, to live a solitary life. As an erotic romance writer, her days and nights are filled with passion and intrigue-even if only fictional. She loves her busy, quiet lifestyle, and she learned early on that real men can't live up to the fictional heroes she creates-until ruggedly handsome Beau Braden arrives to do some work at the inn and, for the first time in forever, she's intrigued by a real man.

Beau lost his first love years ago, and he's never let go of his guilt over her death. As he nears the anniversary of his loss, he is on the cusp of becoming the star of a home-renovation reality show. Escaping the painful memories of his past to work at the defunct old inn is just the promise of solitude he needs to clear his head before diving in to the all-too-public career. But he didn't count on being attracted to the whimsical, adorably sexy innkeeper.

Neither Charlotte nor Beau is looking for an attachment or a fling. But the more they learn about each other, the closer they become. Romantic evenings lead to intimate conversations, and neither can deny their deep connection or the passion it sparks. They've never fully healed on their own, but together maybe anything is possible. 

The Bradens & Montgomerys are part of Melissa's Love in Bloom big-family romance collection. All Love in Bloom novels are written to stand alone and may also be enjoyed as part of the larger series, so dive right into this fun, sexy romance.

**CONTENT WARNING: Due to mature content, recommended for readers aged 18+**

EMBRACING HER HEART
Embracing Her Heart (The Montgomerys Book 1) by [Foster, Melissa]
Leaving New York City and returning to her hometown to teach a screenplay writing class seems like just the break Grace Montgomery needs. Until her sisters wake her at four thirty in the morning to watch the hottest guys in town train wild horses and she realizes that escaping her sisters’ drama-filled lives was a lot easier from hundreds of miles away. To make matters worse, she spots the one man she never wanted to see again—ruggedly handsome Reed Cross. 

Reed was one of Michigan’s leading historical preservation experts, but on the heels of catching his girlfriend in bed with his business partner, his uncle suffers a heart attack. Reed cuts all ties and returns home to Oak Falls to run his uncle’s business. A chance encounter with Grace, his first love, brings back memories he’s spent years trying to escape. 

Grace is bound and determined not to fall under Reed’s spell again—and Reed wants more than another taste of the woman he’s never forgotten. When a midnight party brings them together, passion ignites and old wounds are opened. Grace sets down the ground rules for the next three weeks. No touching, no kissing, and if she has it her way, no breathing, because every breath he takes steals her ability to think. But Reed has other ideas…
