I have made it no secret that I am a fan of Kristen Ashley's style of writing and when I immerse myself in one of her stories I am just happy. The Colorado Mountain series brings to my mind the Anita Baker song "You Bring Me Joy" and the newest installment in the series, Kaleidoscope, did exactly that. The story is good and I joyfully read this one with no disappointment. Jacob (Deck) is a great alpha male who after many years of lamenting over what he thought he lost has is eyes opened to what he really wanted all along and that was Emme. Emme, after suffering through a serious illness alone, came out on the other side with a new determination to take control of her life but found that things planned can easily become disrupted. Especially when a man like Jacob sets his sites on you. This may not be my favorite in the series, but Ashley delivered exactly what I expected from her- a good story with romance and a little steaminess. Well worth the fantastically reasonable price of $3.79 at Amazon for a brand new release!

When old friends become new lovers...anything can happen.
Sexy, gifted, and loyal, PI Jacob Decker is a tall, cool drink of perfection who had Emmanuelle Holmes at "hello." His relationship with Emme's best friend kept them apart for years, but things have changed. Now that a case has brought him to Gnaw Bone, Colorado, the road is wide open for Emme and Deck to explore something hotter and deeper than Emme dreamed possible. So why is she sabotaging the best thing that's ever happened to her?
It isn't easy to catch Deck off guard, but Emme does just that when she walks back into his life after nine long years. The curvy brunette had her charms back in the day, but now she's a bona fide knockout . . . and she wants to rekindle their friendship. Deck, however, wants more. Emme's always been the one; she excites Deck's body and mind like no other woman can. But a dark chapter from Emme's past overshadows their future together. Now only Deck can help her turn the page-if she'll let him . . .
