No Stranger To Love by Pamela Aares

Ah the fake romance, so much fun trying to keep everyone believing its real. So this is the ninth book in this series, and while I haven’t read all of the books in this series, I have read a few of them. The series itself follows a family who is particularly well off. I like the family in general, and they all seem like cool people, but man oh man do they get involved in each others lives. So this book follows our hero, Parker, who is really starting to make a name for himself in the field of wine. Only when a very prestigous magazine wants to do a profile on him, they also want to include bits about his personal life. AKA, he needs to find someone to do the interview will who will pretend to be his significant other in order to get the vibe the magazine is looking for. And so of course, meddling family member to the rescue! Zuri offers up her best friend Juliet for the job, as long as Parker makes a rather large donation to the animal sanctuary that Juliet is trying to get set up in Hawaii. I liked Parker, he seems like a stand up guy, although he does really seem to enjoy things going exactly the way that he plans. The thing about Parker is that he can kind of come off a little bit stiff or rough around the edges, but when he opens up you can see […]

Didn’t You Promise by Amber Bardan

This is the follow up to the first book in the series, Didn’t I Warn You, and it picks up pretty much where we left off, Angelina being made completely aware of who Haithem is, why is his running, and how dangerous his life is going to be for the foreseeable future. I think the thing that struck me the most when I first started this book is how different these two characters are. In the first book they still had this push and pull dynamic, going from being a captive basically to being two people who fell for each other, so I was more focused on that in the first book. But in this book, I really noticed the striking differences. I mean Angelina is very young, and not just in age, but also in I think maturity as well, her parents are very sheltering and a lot of her life was devoted to her brother who passed away, and she missed out on I think of experiences. On the other side you have Haithem who is older, much more mature, and very comfortable with who he is. He is a very focused man, he is super driven to get this one goal accomplished and he is very fierce in both protecting the woman he has come to love, but also in getting his goal accomplished. To me while their differences really shined through in this book, together they just worked. Haithem gives Angelina a purpose she really didn’t have […]

The Hang Up by Tawna Fenske

The Hang Up by Tawna Fenske

I thought this book was really cute, it had kind of a lighthearted feel to it throughout the book. It starts really kind of amusingly with our heroine, Miriam meeting our hero, Jason. Jason of course is covered in mud and has been locked out of his house, but Miriam mistakenly believes him to be a homeless person. I loved their kind of hooky first interaction between them. It’s not really a tone that was kept up through the relationship, but it was a fun way to start and got me hooked. Part of what really appealed to me was that Jason and Miriam have a work connection. They don’t work for the same company, but Jason’s company is using Miriam’s company’s services, so any relationship between the two could cause problems in their work life and I liked that whole dynamic of should we really be doing this. So I liked Miriam kind of way more than I liked Jason. I think maybe I understood her better. She’s really driven and it shows through her work with her company. But she also has kind of a sad backstory that plays into how she handles her feelings toward Jason. Her father died after a mountain climbing accident, so for her being involved with someone who likes to take risks and do adventure sports, is not at all something she is wanting to do. And I got it, I mean it made sense, if I were her I would probably have […]

Burnout by Tee O’Fallon

Man oh man this book was so close to being a five star review for me, I really liked it, I liked it a lot actually. Truth be told I have no idea why I picked out this book, other than I think I was looking for a firefighter book and the title made me think it would have firemen, but it turns out the book was about cops, lots and lots of cops. And it was a fun ride, not at all what I was expecting but a fun ride. So I really, really, really liked our heroine, Cassie. She’s my kind of chick. She’s an undercover cop, and she is super good at her job. She has a dog that she loves, Raven, who used to be a K-9, but is now just her pet. After completely an assignment she finds out that a hit has been taken out on her, instead of going into protective custody which would mean just being stifled and watched by a bunch of cops, she got out of town. The thing about Cassie is that she went into being a cop because it was kind of the family business but what she really loved was food, and she wanted to be a chef. So when she finds herself in a small town restaurant in need of a new chef, she jumps at the chance. I really liked seeing her come into her own and really get a sense of home in this […]

Struck from the Record by K.A. Linde

So I really like K.A. Linde, and moreover I love, love, loved the series with Liz and Brady, I mean it was such a fun ready for me, and I loved following those two around. During the For the Record series we are introduced to Brady’s whole family, including Clay and Andrea, who are the main characters in this book, and I have to admit that I always found Clay to be super interesting so I was really excited to get my hands on this book. Thankfully Clay did not disappoint. One of the best things about this book is that the whole thing is basically told from Clay’s POV, I haven’t read a ton of romances where everything is from the man’s perspective, but honestly I really enjoy it. Also I think Clay is really just a complex guy, so it was great to follow along with him. Clay has felt like he has lived in his brother’s shadow for pretty much his entire life, and really his life goals are just things he thinks his family wants for him, he really is seeking validation from them. But he is also a super cocky guy, who has basically had an open relationship with the same girl for 10 years. They even own a house together! But as they have aged, Andrea, has started to want more from Clay then just the hook up and companionship. And when something unexpected happens she really things there is going to be change […]
