serenity 2 love embraced cover large2bWhen Lindsay and Chad met at Serenity Inn, there was immediate chemistry, but the timing for love was all wrong in the face of what they had both just gone through. They decide to go their separate ways, but they keep in touch. Now the two have agreed to meet, this time on Dr. Chad’s luxurious home turf, with the feisty Cook along for the ride.

The couple find that they not only still have feelings for each other, but those feelings have grown as though they’d never spent time apart. Their elation is short-lived; however, as they realize that with their burgeoning love comes a new challenge: Chad’s sister-in-law, Eleanor, who makes it abundantly clear that Lindsay is beneath Chad’s station in life. Is Eleanor’s assessment valid or does she have an ulterior motive for tearing Lindsay down?

While Chad deals with Lindsay’s unstable feelings, Walter, who has stepped into Chad’s shoes back at Serenity Inn has had his eye on Elaine for a while. She’s distrustful and secretive, but he still feels drawn to her. She pulls on the protector in him. When she finally begins to open up to him, her past comes crashing into her present and lays bare right at Walter’s feet. Will Walter continue to pursue Elaine, even in the face of her ugly past, which could put them all in danger and disturb their serenity?

Ok, I read Serenity Inn and feel in love with it, I couldn’t wait to see if Chad and Lindsey would get together. Needless to say I as soon as Serenity Inn 2 came out I was on it. Well let me tell you it was well worth the wait. I don’t want to destroy the contents of the book for you, but it was all I expected itto be. Ms. Walker books are so easy to read and the character especially the men at least most of them would be a lot of us women’s dream.I’ve read everyone of Ms. Walkers books and I have not been disappointed I can assure you So readers you won’t be disappointed by no means. All I can say is that I can’t wait for the next one. Ms. Walker keep up the good work. A loyal fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Embrace Book 3–Serenity Inn, October 6, 2014
 This review is from: Love Embraced: Serenity Inn 2 ~ A Second Chance Romance (Bed & Breakfast Series Book 3) (Kindle Edition)
Author Nikki Walker always comes through for me.I personally like some added spice with my romance novels and with this third book in the Serenity Inn series Ms. Walker delivers. In this book, she continues with Lindsay and Chad’s story. In book two they feel the fire but are afraid of getting burned, so they back away for a time. In book three they agree to meet at Chad’s home and for the first time, Lindsay gets to see just how wealthy the good doctor really is. Embers of inferiority begin to do a slow burn beneath the surface and are soon fanned to flame by the sharp, critical tongue of Chad’s sister-in-law, Eleanor who, along with her husband Terrance, lives with Chad temporarily. Lindsay wonders if her love for Chad will be enough for him and if she will be able to fit in his “rich and famous” world.Left to keep the inn running while Lindsay visits Chad, Elaine and Walter have a slow simmer of their own going on, but the heat is turned up when someone related to Elaine’s past shows up and threatens to expose her world of “used to be” and Walter … nope, I won’t tell it. I’ll leave you to find out all the juicy details on your own, but I just want to mention the other reason I always reach for Nikki Walker books: she has the eye of a master interior decorator, a water color painter, and an architect all in one. She creates a backdrop for her books that is perfectly suited for her colorful characters. I recommend you grab all of the books in this series. Step into Nikki Walker’s world. You’ll be glad you did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Her Guy Friday was Quite a Catch!!, December 19, 2014
 This review is from: Her Guy-Friday: Serenity Inn 1 (Bed & Breakfast Series) (Kindle Edition)
When Lindsay Morgan decided to open a Bed and Breakfast Inn, she had no idea that one of the people that came to help out would be connected to her husband and her past. A past she hoped to never have to revisit again. Dr Chad Lewis was trying to distance himself from a past mistake that haunted his mere existence. The mistake involved Lindsay Morgan’s husband who was shot by an unknown assailant and later died on the operating table where Dr Chad Lewis perform the surgery on the deceased officer. Dr. Lewis blamed himself for the condition he was under when he operated on her husband. The loss of the man’s life caused Dr. Lewis to leave his elite practice and seek refuge in solitude at his home for two years. Now he was at Serenity Inn to seek Lindsay’s forgiveness so that he could get on with his life. To get on with his life as a world renowned trauma surgeon and wealthy physician. Although once Cad met Lindsay, he could not bring himself to tell her who he actually was. He instead, offered to help with her business opening as her assistant and Guy Friday type.. The story was well-written and the character development was well done. It was easy to see the bed and Breakfast as an actual place of business.. The story telling showcases the book as a good read..

Nikki Walker is going to make me go buy myself a hotel somewhere. The second chance diva has done it again. I was on pins and needles most of this story waiting for the bomb to drop. And when it did, instead of feeling relief my chest tightened with the possibilities of what would happen. I love Nikki’s writings her characters are so vivid that they live both on and off the pages! Loved this book!

Loving Gianni was another Great Read from Nikki Walker! This was a nice easy read that only required about a day and a half to read. Gianni and London’s story was a Special one. I knew from the moment that the characters were introduced that they were meant to be together. Chemistry oozed from the pages with every turn. I can’t wait to read “The Sweetest Love”. Another Great job Nikki!

4.0 out of 5 stars Loving Gianni Was Just Amazing!!!
This review is from: Loving Gianni (The Rossellini Family Series Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
Loving Gianni was a well-written short love story. Estranged from his family for 10 years. Gianni returned after being forced to leave the US for Italy when he was falsely accused of fathering a child with one of his families good friends. Gianni’s return after his aunt’s death to repair her home and the damage done to his family following his extended absence would be a chore. Gianni hired a professional organizer to help him sort his aunts affairs and hopefully get his family to see that he was not the bad person they believe him to be. Along the way, Gianni fell in love with a very demure lady named London. Their relationship was somewhat forbidden as Gianni was the enemy! London’s co-worker was one of the Rossellini family members Gianni was believed to have wronged when he went away to Italy. Gianni needed prove to his family he did not father the little girl his family had grown to love. The consequences of his actions were far reaching and would prove to be just as amazing in the end. A really great book

If you are looking for a series that will keep you thoroughly entertained this is the series for you! Nikki Walker did an excellent job of detailing the complex relationships between Tyrone, Cherise, & Jonathan. I found myself cheering for each character as they fought through their own personal hardships and trials. The relationships that developed out of a painful situation were beautifully illustrated.

In Search of a Healing Place:  Tyrone has some major adjustments to make. He is fresh out of jail and has been turned away from the life of luxury that Wheeler Industries, the family hotel chain, used to afford him.  His days of being the spoilt younger son are over.  He transitions from jail to working for his father as a Mail Department Manager.  Not exactly what he envisioned while serving his time.  Nor did he think he’d be living in a rental that he would have to pay for out of his new, greatly-reduced salary.  Farryn Grant, his father’s personal assistant, has been assigned to help him transition to a much simpler life.  Neither of them anticipate how this arrangement will affect their hearts.
Most importantly,  Tyrone has to figure out how to make peace with the pain he has caused his brother and sister-in-law, Cherise whom he raped during a frat party.  This assault continues to fracture his family, who are in the process of healing.  None of them have quite figured out how to deal with the fact that while he is the father of Diamond, the child that resulted from the assault, it’s his brother who is raising her. This story leaves one wondering if there can be redemption for Tyrone.  Will he and his hurting family ever find a healing place?

Straight up, Tyrone was a mess. He was arrogant, snide, and rude and had no problem taking what clearly was not his. At least that was the old Tyrone. The Tyrone in this story has taken advantage of the opportunity to grow and mature while in prison. Yet there are still those closest to him that do not fully believe that he is redeemed because of all of the drama and havoc that he created. It is time for Tyrone to talk the talk and walk the walk, but can he? Can a man that has been so careless with his own life, reconcile his past and move forward?? Read it the book and find out. Excellent read.

I fell in love with Redemptive Acts I &II and it’s no stretch that the same applies for In Search of A Healing Place. Ms. Walker weaves a very profound tale of loss, discovery, faith, and redemption with the continuation of the on goings of the Wheelers. Reading this, I got a sense thatall of the characters were in a state of turmoil; Tyrone was left to his own devices to find himself once more, Farryn struggles to reconcile her growing attraction to Tyrone, Jon andCherise still contend with the aftermath of her attack. Ms. Walker doesn’t hesitate to toe the line with the explosive emotion or portraying how one selfish act of the past can affect so many people. She delves into the heart of pain, revels in the joy of happiness and love, and gives us hope in the spirit of human nature.In Search of a Healing Place is a beautiful portrait of love and how powerful it reallycan be.Truly a spectacular read!

5.0 out of 5 stars An Amazing story of forgiveness, strength, and love

By Ebony Arrington-McMillan on June 15, 2014

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase

Nikki Walker has done a beautiful job of weaving a tale of betrayal, rebuilding, and forgiveness. I read this book in one day and was so sad that the story of the Wheeler family ended. This story is the perfect tool to start a dialogue about the dangers of college life. It is also a perfect model for strength and forgiveness.
This is the first story that I read by Miss Walker and I cannot wait to read the rest of her blacklisted books. I hope that more people read this book and talk about it.

This review is from: Redemptive Acts Parts I & II: An Inspirational Second Chance Story (Kindle Edition)
When I picked up the Redemptive Acts Series, I had no idea what I was in for. Walker delved into the dark places of human emotion and found a wonderful cautionary tale that resonates with me still.Cherise is the quintessential wallflower. At the prompting of a friend, she attends a frat party that starts off likeadream come true but descends into a nightmare.Cherise emerges from that night scarred in ways that color everything she does. She finds solace and help in an unlikely source. Enter Jonathan who in many ways is as scarred as Cherise is.Can they navigate the choppy waters and the chasms of memory to excise a demon driven deep or will the cruelty ofone act destroy all they hope to build?I’m not one to give spoilers. Books and talent of this caliber deserve more. I look forward to reading more from this author not only as a fellow writer, but as a dedicated fan.

This review is from: To Find A Love Like Ours (Paperback)
***I bought this book in a set but I willreview each novel individually***I must say that I was thoroughly pleased with this love story. Desire and Phillip’s attraction could be felt in the very beginning. I must say that this book took me through a few emotions. Laughter at the playfulness of their relationship and how easy it was for them just just be. I raised an eyebrow at how quickly things went from being a want with Desire for Phillip to her actually going thru with the act. I cant say that I was surprised because I wasn’t but her actions after were surprising to me a little. I must say that their draw to each other was unmistakable. I love when Desire let her guard down and just accepted things as they were. The talk with Desire, Phillip and her mother bought tears to my eyes. That alone had to be one of the best parts of the book. I really enjoyed this novel. A true love story that just felt real and could happen in real life.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Suspenseful Romance, January 22, 2013
By C’est LV
This review is from: Hearts On Fire Book III (Tested Love Series) (Kindle Edition)
Some authors have a knack of writing characters that you really wouldn’t mind having as your friends. I’ve met two such authors recently, but this review is dedicated to Hearts on Fire a book in Nikki Walker’s Tested Love Series. First off, I have to say that I love how she’s written this series in such a way that you don’t necessarily have to have read the other books in the series in order to enjoy one of the books.

However, I will warn you that you might fall so completely in love with the characters, you’ll want to go back to the other books so you can read your fill and get a the fix you will definitely need for these characters. Not to mention how she skillfully hides little nuggets in the story that will have you wondering what happened in the lives of the characters before and after this particular book.

Regarding Hearts on Fire, as it begins you think it’s Trey’s story, but it reads more like Sherri’s story once she gets going, then in the end you realize, it’s both their stories. Trey is an attorney and friend of Sherri’s Uncle Marcus. Burn out at work sends him to his cabin in Vermont for a little R&R. He has a history with Sherri that has been purely platonic up until this point, but he finds himself ready to take that leap of faith and explore something deeper with her.

Her refusal comes by rote, believing his motives to be less than honorable. However, events on her job that occur upon Trey’s departure have her scrambling to get to him. The irony is, he’s the first person she thinks of when she’s in crisis, and this speaks volumes.

Follow Sherri and Trey on this pulse-pounding, suspenseful love story that will have you either on the edge of your seat, worried for Sherri and Trey’s safety, or have you all hot and bothered by the sizzling chemistry they create on the page. What I really love about Nikki’s story is, while it is chaste in comparison to many I’ve read (and hell, even the ones I’ve written), it doesn’t leave you wanting the bump and grind. The suspense keeps you engaged, but it’s the romance itself that keeps you rooting for these two until the end…

The only thing I can find wrong with this book or any of her others is that they are way to SHORT!!!!!!! This young lady has crack in her pen,and I’m addicted………on to Redemptive Acts.
