Another day, another trip, and another hotel. This time I found myself in Lumberton North Carolina on my way back to sunny Florida. We actually lucked out with this hotel. It’s right off of I-95 and surrounded by food and shopping options that are within walking distance. We got in pretty early, so we put our walking shoes on (by walking shoes I actually meant my Reef flip flops) and took advantage of the options.
Plus, there is a Denny’s restaurant right in the middle of the lobby. Okay, it is actually to the right of the lobby, but you get the idea. Anyway, we all know what that means, 24-hour eating at its finest. I did make Denny’s my breakfast option, but it was Chick-fil-A and Cold Stone for dinner.
The book that kept me company overnight was a fantastic new option by one of my go-to authors. It’s all about starting over and second chances, and it is absolutely hilarious! I adored the kids, they wanted so badly to help the people they consider pack, and the adults were just as amazing. Together they all rallied around this couple to make what could have been their biggest heartbreak into the best HEA. This is one of those books that I am sure to re-read and I certainly hope the author doesn’t make us wait too long for the next installment.
Like the hotel, this book is perfect for a road trip, and I will surely be checking them both out again. Who knows, maybe I will see you there one day.

War zones and wildfires? No sweat. A summer camp full of shifter kids? Oh hell no. Buck Frazer has been a lot of things in his life - a Marine, a firefighter, human. And now, after an unwanted bite, he’s a motherloving werewolf. With wings. He’s supposed to be enjoying his hard-earned retirement, not waking up naked on rooftops. But the feral furball sharing his skin wants to be part of a pack. And no matter how hard he fights, it keeps dragging him to one place: Camp Thunderbird. A secret summer camp for shifter kids… which is in desperate need of a camp counselor. Two months wrangling a pack of hyperactive nine-year-olds who poof into fur every five minutes. Buck would rather swallow ground glass, but his personal curse isn't giving him a choice. Only one thing could make this worse… and she just said, “Hi! I’m your co-counselor!” The gorgeous woman with the sunny smile is the last thing he needs - now, or ever. Even the damn kids can see the connection between them (and are way too keen to give fate a helping hand, as if he didn't have enough problems already). Her briefest touch has the beast in him howling for release. She’s his motherloving mate. And she doesn’t… seem to have… noticed? Which doesn’t make a lick of sense. Buck knows shifters (not that he is one, thank you very much). The moment they meet their mate, every other thought falls out of their tiny skulls. And Camp Thunderbird is shifters-only, no humans allowed. The infuriating woman must know she's driving him mad. She has to be a shifter… …Right? Welcome to Cub Camp. It's going to be one wild summer... Packed with laugh-out-loud comedy and sizzling passion, Stormwolf Summer is a slow-burn, steamy, grumpy/sunshine, fated mates shifter romance featuring a strong midlife heroine and a growly veteran who's determined to fight fate all the way to the end. No cliffhangers! Authors note: Buck first appeared in Fire & Rescue Shifters: Wildfire Crew, but you do not need to have read that series to enjoy this book. But if you have read the Wildfire series, you'll see some familiar faces at camp...
Official published review:
Lazy nights and campfire stories
This has to be one of my absolute favorite books by this author! I kept finding myself laughing out loud at the kid friendly curses and the innocent attempts to get these two together. The story contained a lot of deep healing with moments that brought tears to my eyes and just the right amount of grumpy angst. I love the campfire vibes! They made me want to pull out the s'mores and hiking boots as well as adding an endearing vibe to the entire tale. This book was a fresh enjoyable read that I didn’t want to end. Speaking of which, I loved the hint of what’s coming on the horizon. I hope we don’t have to wait very long for book two.
