TRULY A MIRACLE REVIEW!!


HEY GUYS, I AM REALLY STOKED TO FINALLY BE ABLE TO BRING YOU MY REVIEW OF THE SECOND BOOK IN THE INNKEEPERS SERIES BY DERRICK KNIGHT! BELOW IS MY REVIEW AND LINKS FOR TRULY A MIRACLE, LET'S GET TO IT: 



THIS IS THE PERFECT QUOTE FOR THIS BOOK, TRUST ME!! HERE IS MY REVIEW: 


Truly A Miracle
The Innkeepers Series
by: Derrick Knight
reviewed by: Becky

Dustin Hurst and Nathaniel Schmitt were happy when Nathaniel’s sister Natalie agreed to be their surrogate. Both men were elated finding out that she was pregnant with twins. Their dreams of becoming parents finally coming true, until one day, Natalie goes into preterm labor. 

Diana and Niles Hurst-Schmitt enter the world over two months premature. Immediately they’re transported to a nearby children’s hospital where doctors soon discover both twins have life threatening complications requiring surgical intervention. 

During their children’s hospitalization, Dustin and Nathaniel grow fond of the many talented healthcare professionals working to heal their newborns, including the attractive dietitian Matt Bachmeier. They think it’s only a matter of time before their babies are well enough to come home. Unfortunately, fate has other plans for the tiny infants resulting in Dustin and Nathaniel unexpectedly embarking on a terrifying journey witnessing their children fighting for their lives. 

As their medical crisis continues to unfold, Dustin and Nathaniel pray for a miracle their family so desperately needs. 





I am so excited to review this book, I loved the first book in this series so much, and I so wanted this book to live up to it, and I am very happy to say that it did and more!! 

We met Dustin, Nathaniel, and Natalie in book one of the series, and I am so glad this story focused on Dustin and Nathaniel and their family, and though sometimes it is a suspenseful story, but there is always an underlying theme of love and hope that just pulls you into the story. 

Natalie is carrying Dustin and Nathaniel's twins and their life turns upside down when she goes into preterm labor, will their babies be OK? Will Natalie? What will happen when they get the babies home? 

There is so much going on in this story that I won't spoil anything, but I will say that if you read the first book you will be able to catch up with old friends in this one :), and there will also be plenty of OMG moments for sure!! Thanks Derrick, for a second book that lives up to the first one and more!!

NOW FOR SOME BOOK INFO AND GRACE'S REVIEW!!
Sparks ignite and tempers flare when a sexy, optimistic wedding planner moves his business in across the hall from a jilted, divorce lawyer’s practice. 

“Look smart ass. This is the last time I’m going to remind you about breaking sections of the lease. If there’s a next time, I won’t stop until you and your frilly, white wedding shit is thrown out of here. Do you got it?!” 
Wylde looked in Jacob’s pained eyes and answered in his deep voice. “Yeah, counselor. I got it.” 

From high school, up until he became a successful attorney Jacob Snowden was convinced that love had it out for him. “Everyone left,” were the words he lived by. His mother, his high school sweetheart, his father, and his fiancĂ©, all left Jacob just when he felt it was safe to let down his guard. Not any longer. Jacob was a determined man, set at keeping people at a distance. If his six foot one, military-made body didn’t scare people off, his permanent scowl surely did. At almost forty, Jacob’s social life was non-existent, but he told himself his work fulfilled him. He helped people get out of their loveless marriages. Jacob Snowden was one of the best divorce lawyers on the east coast and was damn proud of it. So, imagine his disdain when a wedding planner moves into the suite directly adjacent to his… an insanely masculine, male wedding planner. 

Wylde Sterling had made quite a name for himself in his hometown of Roanoke, Virginia, working for a wedding planner that catered to the elite. He was known for his charm and impeccable taste. Yep, he was incredible at giving couples the wedding of their dreams. But he wanted nothing more than to plan his own. After striking out in love more times than he cared to admit, Wylde decided to start his own business in a new city, hoping Richmond would give him a fresh start. Things started out wonderfully – until he started to piss off the angry divorce attorney next door. 

Wylde could see past Jacob’s mean scowl, knowing there was a reason for it. It was the man’s defense mechanism, his means of keeping people away. Everything in Wylde told him to stay away, but he believed Jacob just needed to meet a man who had been hurt as badly as he had. 

This story ends in an HEA and does not end on a cliffhanger.







I must admit, I had extreme high hopes for this book knowing who the author is.  There hasn’t been a book by AE Via I’ve read that disappointed me.  And, thank goodness, this one definitely is a winner!
I was a bit concerned with how long it took to meet Wylde but as the story unfolded, I realized we needed a thorough background to understand why Jacob was so internalized and controlled.  What he goes through with his family and first loves affects him dramatically and he eventually decides living without love is better than allowing someone to hurt him again.  
Wylde comes with his own issues but he refuses to allow his past to make him run from love again.  Moving on and opening his own wedding planning business is a dream come true and now he’s ready to find the man to live that dream with.
When Wylde and Jacob meet, the sparks fly immediately.  Jacob, in routine Jacob fashion, fights his attraction tooth and nail until Wylde catches him on a very bad day and finally, breaks through his shell.  Wylde’s insistence on putting Jacob first could be what finally opens Jacob up to what he’s always craved.
There were several times through this book that I wanted to smack Jacob on the back of the head and shake him, followed up by a hug.  But watching his layers of protection slowly thaw with Wylde and allow the possibility of love into his heart was absolutely amazing.  So, grab some tissues, turn off the phone and settle in for an angst-ridden and sexy read.

Excerpt
Jacob walked down the sidewalk unaware of the blistering cold weather, feeling like someone had just kicked his ass. He didn’t like being played with; he was too old for games. That well-dressed man was just sticking up for his girl or something, because there was no way in hell that guy was a goddamn wedding planner. He looked like an athlete, a swimmer or maybe a diver. With that long, slim body and those thin fingers. His face was narrow, his strong jaw highlighted by a perfectly groomed goatee. Shit. The same light hair that framed his tender-looking lips. Jacob groaned as he yanked his car door open. He hated that he got caught staring, wondering how the man looked with that man bun undone, and the sandy-brown hair framing his face.
He’d never heard of anyone named wild, well that wasn’t how it was spelled, but it was still an interesting name. Jacob sped down E. Broad and slung a hard left onto S. Belvedere. He needed to get home and work off the heat that’d been building in the pit of his stomach… and a little lower. That goddamn wedding planner smelled like the best bar of soap ever invented. He’d never been hit so hard by a fragrance. Jacob’s dick rose a little higher, making him groan since he refused to touch it. He was not going to let that smooth criminal rob him of his self-control. He made a quick left onto W. Main, overshooting the speed limit by at least twenty miles per hour. That was a reckless driving ticket if he was stopped. There were a lot of restaurants on this street and Jacob thought of pulling into one, but quickly decided against it. Finally turning onto N. Plum, he entered his condo’s parking lot and hurriedly took the elevator to his apartment.
His stomach growled, reminding him he’d skipped lunch and now dinner, while he changed into his workout clothes. He’d run until there were no more thoughts of Wylde. Damnit, Jacob even liked the way that name sounded on his tongue. His cock protruded from the thin nylon shorts as he set his treadmill to the most difficult setting and pressed start. Jacob was barely able to finish, but he did it, making him feel more victorious and more in control. He showered quickly, washing his groin too fast for it to feel good. While he ate takeout in his dark living room, he picked up his cell and called Patrick again… no fucking answer. Goddamn him.

Blurb:
Minor league goalie Adam Seiger is a nice guy. He’s kind, cute, and a little quirky (but show me a goalie who isn’t) and he loves to interact with fans. During a meet and greet after a game Adam meets Cason Reyes, a hard-working young man with stunning amber eyes and a smile as sweet as a candy cane. Desperate to see Cason again, Adam does something more than a little naughty.
To add insult to the egg nog, it appears that one little white lie may end Adam’s chance of having a merry Christmas with a new boyfriend. Will he end up with nothing but a lump of coal in his stocking, instead of the man who owns his heart?

WOO HOO, PRE-ORDER THIS ONE TODAY! I CAN'T WAIT TO REVIEW IT FOR OUR COUNTDOWN TO THE HOLIDAYS EVENT ON RELEASE DAY! BELOW IS AN EXCERPT, AND I KNOW YOU GUYS WILL LOVE IT!!

Excerpt:
“So tell me about Adam Seiger, the first gay black goalie I’ve ever had the pleasure of eating spiedies with.”
I smiled around the mouthful of awesomeness. “Not much to tell,” I said after I swallowed roughly. “I grew up in Toronto, played lots of hockey, and was taken in by my aunt and uncle when my parents were killed in a motorcycle accident.”
“Ouch,” he murmured after dipping a fry into a glob of ketchup on his plate. “That must have been rough on you. How old were you when they died?”
“Four, so I don’t really remember too much about them. My aunt and uncle were the best, really.” I looked up from my food to find Cason staring at me. “Do I have food on my face?”
“No, no, you’re just,” he paused with a fry hovering in front of his face, “you’re probably the best looking man I’ve seen in this city for years. I guess I’m kind of stunned to find myself sitting here, on a date, with such a sexy jock.” I had to avert my sight, just until I could get the surge of embarrassment and white-hot lust under control. “See, that there—that is so hot. I love that about hockey players. They’re always so damn humble.”
“So yeah, enough about me or my face will combust,” I said, and Cason chuckled then shoved his fry into his mouth. “How did a kid with a dad from Argentina get into hockey? I’d think you’d be a soccer fan.”
“Oh, I am, but winter in Binghamton means hockey, so I go to the games when I can afford it. I like the speed of hockey, and the violence. Also, the goalies are really cute.”
I coughed and ducked my head. “You’re doing it again.” Cason laughed and I felt the rib pit tip dangerously to the right. Making him laugh again now seemed like the most important thing ever. “Do you always talk up your dates this way?”
“Only if I’m dreaming about a kiss at the end of the date,” he confessed, but I saw a shade of pink settle into his smooth cheeks. Seemed he was a bit of a blusher as well. That was good to know.
“Yeah, that dream is pretty sure to be fulfilled if you keep talking like that.”
