Review: Capital Encounters by Dawn Wright

When a promotion to junior recruiter affords her the chance to move across the bridge into DC, Summer—a free bird—quickly sheds her loner lifestyle after she meets, Emily, a class act whose heart is still tied to her ex-husband; Brooke, a career-driven woman looking for love who wants to have it all; and Amber, the fearless pianist who makes a living off her flings. 

Summer’s life begins to go as planned, until she meets a hot Cuban at a party who will change her life forever. What starts off as a “harmless affair” with Ruben Sotolongo, turns out to be a perilous situation as she struggles with her temptation to play with fire. Soon, Summer realizes that she must walk away from him before it’s too late. At the same time, Summer’s friends slowly find the tide turning against them. Brooke will have to face a deal breaker after finding love; after months of suffering, Emily’s chance at healing is threatened by an impediment least likely of all places; and when Amber accidentally betrays someone dear to her and underestimates the personality of a client, she realizes that her flings may not exactly be all fun and games. Will they make it out of the turmoil bruised and battered or stronger than ever?



Sexy, edgy, dramatic and smoothly written.

 Four different women, four stories, one book.

Author Dawn Wright takes us on a roller coaster ride of emotions along with four fictional women and I'm damn sure that every reader will have at least one of them to relate to. She has brought us a book revolving around the lives of four very different women, each one of which is haunted by her own demons.


At first I was a bit skittish to read "Capital Encounters" as I am not a fan of books with so many lead characters, but it came out to be great, it was beautifully written and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. This book is about four ordinary women who have made some foolish mistakes and stupid decisions in life. All of them have different definitions of love.  The main characters- Summer, Amber, Emily and Brooke had completely different personalities but nevertheless, they sticked together.


Summer- Job recruiter during the day, lover at night.

 

Amber- Piano Teacher during the day, sleeps for money at night.
Brooke- Wedding planner during the day, romantic girlfriend at night.
Emily- Third grade teacher during the day, distraught ex-wife at night.


The story was intriguing and full of love with heart-ripping emotions. There came a point when I wanted  to scream and cry and shake some sense into them for all the stupid things they did.

Capital Encounters was a perfect blend of angst, laughter, sass and hotness. This book made me feel so many emotions from happy to sad to frustrated to laughing my ass out. So all in all Capital Encounters was refreshing and unique and I had great time reading it. I highly recommend this book.

This was Dawn's first debut novel and she did a tremendous job. She has a good hold over storytelling. It's like she fills life in the fictional characters. The best part of her writing was the jumps in time and the switching between the lead characters.

BOOK REVIEW: BOUND BY VENGEANCE(born in blood mafia chronicles #5 ) BY CORA REILLY

Growl
He’d never had something to himself, never even dared to dream about owning something so precious. He was the unwanted bastard son who’d always had to content himself with the leftovers of others. And now they’d given him what only a few weeks ago had been out of his reach, someone he wasn’t even allowed to admire from afar, one of their most prized possessions. Thrown at his feet because he was who he was because they were certain he would break her. He was her punishment, a fate worse than death, a way to deliver the ultimate punishment to her father who had displeased them so greatly.

Cara
She had always been the good girl. It didn’t protect her.
She didn’t know his real name. People called him Growl to his face and the Bastard behind his back. Both were names he couldn’t possibly have chosen for himself. His eyes were empty, a mirror to throw back her own fear at her. He was a brutal hand of the Las Vegas Camorra.
And now she was at his mercy.

BOOK REVIEW: CROWN OF LIES (crown of lies duet 1) BY PEPPER WINTERS

Noelle Charlston lives a fairy-tale life: a doting father, a powerful job, and a future blessed with financial security. 
However, two meetings with two men changes her happy existence forever. First, she meets the man who makes her heart sing. Three years later, she meets the man who makes her blood quiver. 
Broken-hearted from a teenage romance, Noelle’s freedom is no longer hers. It belongs to the stranger her father believes is her perfect match. The stranger who pulls his lies over everyone he touches.  Including her. 
Seduced and manipulated, Noelle gives into the mysterious Penn Everett. The lies he spins, the truth he hides, the mystery he weaves—it’s all enough to slowly erode the woman she is and turn her into something else. 
Until her past collides with her present.  And it’s her turn to lie. 
To everyone…including herself.

Vivian
Terrified at what my family wanted to do to me, I ran away from them straight into the arms of a gray-eyed stranger.
The man taught me how to love, creating a cocoon around my heart that nothing could break.
I thought my old life was behind me, but my dreams didn't come true.
They had found me and manipulated the situation in their favor, destroying my life in the process.
To save the man I loved, I had no choice but to betray him.
He was out of prison now.
 He would come for revenge.
All I could do was pray for mercy.
