Morrow’s Horizon by Sierra Kummings
Cover Reveal: April 7th, 2017
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Blood, and love for a special little girl, bind the five Morrow sisters in an unbreakable way. Yet the family-devoted Sara Morrow yearns for more.
And that “more” looks a lot like the irresistible Jacob Ramírez.
For years, Sara’s contented herself with toe-curling fantasies about the CFO of the bank that employs her – all the while promising herself she’d never fall for the type of passion that destroyed her parent’s marriage. But when the one and only Latin six-foot-four god accepts her offer of help and turns her fantasies into reality, she’s forced to decide if it’s worth finding out if her boss is everything she’s dreamed of, or just the manifestation of all her fears.
Jacob has his own set of fears. Right out of high school, he joined the Marines, only to come home six years later with night terrors that haunt even his days. Now, at thirty-three, rudimentary techniques keep his secret hidden.
Until a chance meeting with Sara Morrow coincides with a deception that rocks him to his core.
When Sara’s faith is tested, her sisters’ love gives her the courage to believe in someone else. When Jacob’s is tested, he has to learn how to believe in himself.
Sara turned toward the customer whose face she couldn’t see. One would think living this close to the Mexican border, she’d would be immune to the effects of the foreign language rolling off a man’s tongue. One would be wrong. Its gentle cadence sent her into fantasies at the first word.
If she were ever going to take a risk on anyone it would be with someone like the man who currently had his back to her while he placed his order. At least half a foot taller than Sara’s own five foot eleven inches, he towered over everyone, and in a way that commanded attention. His knee-length jacket hid everything but broad shoulders, yet his presence called to her on a visceral level. She didn’t have to see his face. She didn’t have to see his body. His sex appeal came from something far greater than those two things. And she wasn’t the only one staring. At least half the people in the place had their eyes focused on him too.
“Ma’am.” The barista nodded in Sara’s direction, breaking her fascination and offering a to-go cup.
As much as she wanted to continue staring, she grabbed her phone, took the coffee, and headed outside. Her favorite drink would have to suffice as the only hot thing in her life at the moment. Sipping it while she drove the rest of the way to work would be infinitely better than whatever drama that guy was sure to cause.
Shivering, Sara hustled to where she’d parked her car while checking the time on her phone. Twenty minutes to spare with only a fifteen-minute drive. Not bad. She smiled in triumphant at her little red Toyota.
Her smile didn’t last long. She’d come out with her coffee, but only two of her other possessions.
A voice behind her said, “You might need these.”
The familiar tenor from inside washed over Sara and made her forget all about the cold and how she’d be better off without the complication of one extremely sexy Latin man. His voice tempted her even more up close than it had in the café.
She struggled for words, fearing her reaction would only intensify once she turned around. If he could start a shiver racing down her spine while he remained faceless, what would he do to her when her gaze actually met his?
Knowing he most likely had the keys she was now missing, she turned slowly, keeping her stare solely fixated on the huge palm holding out her keychain. “Um…” Oh, stop being an idiot. He’s only a man. “Thanks, I appreciate it…” Her voice trailed off as she realized the man in front of her was much more than only a man.
The person holding out her keys was none other than the person whose pictures she’d spent countless hours drooling over.
The Latin lover of her dreams.

Alexa’s 3 star review
** Reviewed on behalf of 2 Girls Who Love Books **
Always happy to see new authors and I was really pleased to have a chance to read and review this book. I think for a debut novel this was a solid work and had a lot of potential – interesting characters, good concept, good writing.
When I read the blurb for the book I was actually super excited to read this one! It sounded like something I would really enjoy and also be the first in a great series focusing on this unique and encompassing family…
However, the reality of the book fell short for me. Right from the start I felt like I’d been dropped in the middle of the story without a lot of explanation and was struggling to find my bearings. This feeling stayed with me as the book progressed. There was constantly more info and then more and different dramas happening.
There was a LOT going on in the book and I really felt like it would have benefited from more editing. It was quite long and dragged in places. I found myself paging through a lot (which I hate to do!).
The book was told in alternating POV’s and there were times that I would have enjoyed more information on some of the characters or plot twists and less on others. Some of the plot twists were just sort of dropped in and then the story would switch to something different altogether. I found this odd as some were quite major!
Overall, I was disappointed as I just didn’t connect with the story or the characters. If you enjoy a book with tons of angst and drama you will probably find this to be an enjoyable read.
