Review by Jackie: Sunset Thunder by Shannyn Leah

Violet Caliendo escorts couples into the illusion of “happily ever after” as wedding coordinator at Willow Valley’s five-star Caliendo Resort. But Violet doesn’t believe in love or “happily ever after” anymore. She’s guarded herself from love so deeply since her divorce that some even call her the “Ice Queen.” When she has to plan her ex-husband’s wedding, even her Ice Queen persona takes a hit.

With her emotions in high gear, she takes out her frustrations by having sex with her ex’s best man, Ryder Carlex. Ryder is a playboy type and Violet figures it’s a simple one-time fling. But Ryder actually is attracted to Violet in a way he’s never known before. Neither of them ever imagines that the sparks between them will ignite a fire hotter than anything they’ve ever encountered – slowly breaking down both their walls. 

Will Violet be able to let go of her past and embrace a possible future with Ryder? Will Ryder let Violet into his own deep, dark secrets? Or will their trust issues forever doom them both from achieving their own “happily ever after”?

This book can be read as a stand alone, but for more enjoyment read them in the order of the series, as all the characters appear in future books.

I was given this book for an honest review
This is my first book by Shannyn Leah and I really wasn't sure what to expect. I loved it and I really love finding new authors that have you hooked from page one. This won't be the last book I read by Shannyn.
Violet is a events planner at her families resort and she is planning her Ex husband Joel's second wedding. Violet was sure she could handle it after all her marriage was over before it began and Joel is not a very nice man but when the wedding party arrives to choose the room she finds herself ducking into what she thought was a empty restroom. Not so she comes face to face with the sexy best man Ryder, what follows is hot monkey climbing sex....
Both Violet and Ryder think this was a one off and they could move on but they keep getting thrown together.
Ryder is trying to keep a family secret and that means he needs to live the playboy love them and leave them lifestyle that is until the sex in the restroom with Violet ......
The chemistry between these two is hot and the other characters are perfect. They both have issues they need to deal with before they can move on. This book had it all it was romantic, funny and very hot!!!
Sunset Thunder is book 1 in The Caliendo Resort and Book 6 in The By Lake but it can be read as a standalone. No Cliffhangers.....
I will be looking at the rest of this series and previous books by Shannyn Leah
