A Fool for You by Katee Robert

I read The Marriage Contract not that long ago, and I really did love it, it was a pretty awesome book, so when this book came my way I was excited to read it. This book has second chances and a baby in the mix, which always makes for some seriously heightened emotions. This is book three in the series, but it is without a doubt a stand alone, although I think you get to see characters from the other books in this one, so that might be a plus for people who followed the series. So when the book starts we meet our heroine, Hope, who is on her way back to her home town, the first time in over a decade, going to set up a scholarship to honor her brother. There is a lot of baggage for Hope when it comes to going back home, the place where her brother died, the same accident that killed her brother also took away her ability to run and be and athlete, and left her dealing with some level of pain for the rest of her life and some serious scarring (both emotionally and physically). I liked Hope a lot, she’s made a life for herself that she could be proud of and hasn’t let the tragedy in her life stop her. I liked that she is a strong independent woman, I also liked that she didn’t try and keep the news of the baby from Danny, I mean she […]

I love when romances take place between two people who have known each other since they were kids, or at least on the young side. What can I say I love a good back story. So Bizzy and Shaw have known each other for a very long time, she was best friends with his little brother when they were both going through cancer treatments. And now that they have all grown up, Bizzy is incredibly close to Shaw’s whole family. Bizzy has had feelings for Shaw pretty much since the moment that she saw him. But she has always kept it on the back burner, never really expecting anything to come from it. Until one day things change between the two of them, and it’s more than just being close, it’s shifted to be romantic. It’s actually really kind of cute and fun to see how Bizzy takes this new found shift in their relationship, I mean she doesn’t exactly trust that it’s real, but she isn’t about to turn it down either. Shaw I really loved in the beginning. I loved seeing how protective he could be, and only in the best ways, he wasn’t overbearing or anything like that. He also has really good relationships with his brothers and whole family, which I liked. However, of course it wasn’t going to be smooth sailing for Bizzy and Shaw, I mean what kind of book would that be. See Shaw had a couple of hook ups with this one […]

Ah the secret baby story line, I really like these when they are done in a way where it isn’t the mom intentionally keeping the dad away (unless of course there is some kind of very valid reason). Thankfully, Dani doesn’t keep Reid from him son intentionally, they had basically a one night stand at a music festival where they didn’t even exchange last names. So it’s been 8 years since Dani has seen the man who gave her her son, and she has made the most out of those 8 years. She has a great relationship with her son Ryan. She’s close with her sister and her father, who are both big helps when it comes to raising Ryan. And she finished school and is a teacher now, her life is on track, and she is doing well for herself. But the one thing missing is that every once in a while Ryan will ask about his dad, and Dani just doesn’t know what to say, she only wants the best for her son and she knows he deserves a father. I loved her character, she is a really strong woman who cares a lot about her family, her life revolves around her son, and is just a cool chick in general. Now as for Reid, well he is a bit more of a complicated fellow. He makes me sad a little bit. He knew exactly what his life was going to be like back when he was a […]

Her Secret, His Surprise by Paula Altenburg

Sometimes I really like the whole secret baby story line, I mean sometimes I hate, especially when the mom hid the kid for vindictive reasons, but when it’s done well, I tend to like them. Besides the baby/kid almost always results in some interesting conversations and awkward encounters when the situations comes to light, and what can I say I like a little bit of drama. So this book has kind of a lot going on, you have Cass who is a very driven woman who has a one night stand while on a work trip with Logan, the bartender. Well, she thinks he’s a bartender. He’s really an undercover agent whose job it is to basically find leaks of military information. And wouldn’t you know it, Cass works for defense company. Two years and one baby later, Logan shows up at Cass’s work, only this time he’s her temporary administrative assistant and not the bartender. Talk about complicated. So I liked Cass, she ambitious but somehow she’s managed to not let that ambition make her jaded, I think its her youth. She’s also very loving when it comes to her daughter, she grew up in a family where she didn’t feel a lot of affection or love, and she wants to make sure that her daughter never has to feel that way. I loved how much Cass wants to give her daughter the life she wished she had. But what really worked for me when it came to Cass was […]

Beauty and the Bull Rider by Victoria Vane

I have been dying for a really good cowboy book, I think it’s because it’s been cold and I’ve been missing Texas and my husband and I can’t stop talking about buying horses. Whatever the reason, I was pretty excited about this book, because not only is it cowboys but it is rodeo cowboys, and I adore the rodeo, some of my best memories growing up. I thought this was an interesting concept though, the heroine used to be married to the hero’s best friend, so if that doesn’t spell out a complicated situation I don’t know what does, and I love a little drama. So the book starts out and we meet Zac, who has apparently had a thing for Delaney since the day he met her, only she went out with his friend and married him instead. Now it’s years later and she’s divorced, doesn’t seem to even want to be around Zac, and now he finds out she is looking to have a baby solo. Zac does not like the sound of that, he does not want his dream girl having a baby by herself, he wants to be the guy by her side. I liked Zac, he tries really hard to get Delaney to take him seriously, and he is constantly trying to be nice to her or do nice things for her. I’m glad he wasn’t overly pushy, but I’m glad that he also made sure that she understood where he was coming from. Delaney […]

Unsung by Shannon Richard

This book was super cute and adorable. I knew from the synopsis that this book would involve the heroine turning up unexpectedly pregnant, which for me can go either way, but in this book it just worked so well. I love the whole musician angle as well, I used to really adore country music, and this book really brought me back to that. So our heroine is Harper and she is in Nashville visiting her aunt after being left by her fiancee, when one night at a bar she ends up meeting this guy, Liam, who gallantly rescues her from a unwanted dude hitting on her. They hit it off, like really hit it off. I was really impressed out how well the chemistry came right from the beginning. And when Harper’s weekend plans don’t pan out she ends up spending the weekend with Liam. They have no specifics deal, so they just spend time together talking and of course spending time between the sheets. But on the last night things take a deeper more serious turn and Harper freaks out and runs. Fast forward and we have a pregnant Harper running into Liam at a public function, where she has to tell him she’s pregnant. And did I mention that his entire family is there as well? Talk about an awkward way to meet the family. I actually really thought that Liam handled the unexpected baby news pretty well, yes there was definitely some bumps with the new found […]

Hidden Away by Jennie Marts

I adore second chance romances, especially when it is one of those first loves situations. I think everyone can identify with the whole, I wonder if things would have worked out if we had stayed together. That being said, this book took me through the ringer, I mean I was sad, I was happy, I was heartbroken, this book just pulls your emotional heartstrings all over the place. First things first, be prepared, this book starts of sad. Yes the synopsis does warn you that Cherry’s dies and that’s how she ends up with her nephew, but man oh man does it totally just break your heart. From the moment that Cherry gets the news, to when she has to tell her nephew and has to basically bring him into her life that is kind of falling apart as it is, man these two had it tough. I have to say the thing I admired the most about Cherry is how she just keeps going. Life sure gets a kick out of knocking her down, first with the fire in her diner, to her cousin (who is also her close friend) dying, to having to fight off her family who wants to take away her nephew from her; but honestly Cherry doesn’t give up. I loved how hard working she is, and how great she is with her nephew. There is of course some family secret stuff going on in this story, and while i would love to talk about […]

Resurrection River by Lindsay Cross

So if you have read this first book in the series, you could kind of guess that the second book was going to be about Ranger and Amy. Although you kind of new it was going to be a hard relationship, and more than a little heartbreaking. So in the first book, a member of Ranger’s secret military task force died, and he happened to be Ranger’s best friend and Amy’s husband. Of course Ranger has been harboring his feelings for Amy for a super long time, but he was always respectful of his friend’s marriage, except now he is gone… So Amy is so heartbreaking to read. She is really broken at the beginning of the book, actually that might be wrong, she’s more like frozen. She’s decided not to engage in any of her feelings about the death of her husband, or the fact that Shane never knew about their daughter Chloe, let alone got the chance to meet her. Amy is just going through the motions, it’s been months since her husband died, and she still can’t open herself up emotionally. The problem is she has always had feelings for Ranger, and she doesn’t want to feel like she is betraying her husband’s memory, also Shane’s mother is a vile woman who has made numerous threats, so Amy doesn’t want to rock the boat, especially because of Chloe. I liked Amy, there are few moments where I worried she was going to be a weak character, but man […]

Burying Water by K.A. Tucker

I really enjoy K.A. Tucker’s writing, and I picked this book up a long time ago, but I was kind of nervous about reading it. So while I adore reading Tucker’s work, she has the amazing ability to write these damaged characters that pull me in so deep that I get so emotionally attached to them, that it seriously breaks my heart when something bad happens to them. And judging from the synopsis of this book I knew I was in for a rough ride, thankfully it was one I enjoyed from beginning to end. The first thing I want to mention is that I absolutely love the way she wrote this book. Sometimes I like when books flash back and forth between past and present and other times it drives me bonkers. In this particular book I loved that it went back and forth, and I loved that the past was told in one POV and the present in a different one. I mean both POVs are painting the same picture, but they are each so different and so easy to fall into and really care about the characters. So going into the book you know right off bat that Water is a woman who was left for dead in a field and has absolutely no memory of who she is. As a reader I couldn’t help but try and figure out what could have brought her to that place in her life, who would have wanted to hurt […]
