Delicious Satisfaction by Sabrina Sol

So this is not my first book in the series that I have read, and I really liked Delicious Complication, which is the book before. I liked Brandon a lot, and his whole fake relationship storyline, and there was also a fair amount of suspense in the plot, so I was looking forward to this book and hoping for a little bit of the same kind of tone from the one I had read previously. And there was some of the same kind of themes in this book, but I didn’t love it as much as I did the previous book. So we’d already met Alexa and Dante (she’s Brandon’s sister and he’s his old best buddy and lawyer), so if you already read the other book you kind of already have a feel for them going in, but if not that’s cool too. I really liked how the book started off, Alexa goes to a restaurant to meet her friends, and of course it is the restaurant owned by her ex. Only when she walks in and realizes that he completely ripped off all her ideas and recipes, she’s irate. Obviously. Needless to say the whole thing end up with her in jail, and who comes to bail her out, you guess it, Dante, the lawyer. Alexa in the beginning was easy to like. She came off as really true to herself in terms of her style and her personality, but as the book goes on she ends up […]

Distracted by Her by Caitlyn Blue

I got this book quite some time ago, and I read it a while ago too, I just forgot to write a review, so I reread it and it held up pretty well the second time around. I tend to really like revenge plots, they are just so juicy with drama. Plus this one had the added in fake relationship, and you just know fake relationships always turn into something more. The book is pretty fast paced, it was a quick read both times which is just what I was looking for. This book definitely has some serious complications that could have made for some super big time drama, but like I said this book is a pretty quick read so the few instances of straight up confrontation came and went pretty fast. Devlin has come back to the small town where he grew up to avenge his father who was wrongfully accused of embezzling and then died in jail. And wouldn’t you know it, the guy who set up Devlin’s father is the father of our lovely heroine, Rebecca. Rebecca is pretty mousy actually, she seems to go out of her way to be unremarkable, wrapping herself in unflattering clothing and big glasses to hide behind. That’s not to say she is unremarkable, she is beautiful and talented and what seems like an overall pretty good person. She was easy to like. But being in this small town, where the Queen Bee basically hates her is not an easy […]

Wolf Moon by Lisa Kessler

I’ll admit I was a little bit leery about picking up this book to read, I figured since it was so far into the series that I would be inundated with a bunch of characters that had already been established and it would be next to impossible to follow. I was super wrong, this book is easily a standalone, yes there were characters from the other books in this one, but they were truly support characters, and I appreciated that the focus was mostly on our two main characters. Truth be told when I first started reading urban fantasy/paranormal romance book it wasn’t the vamps that attracted me, it was shifters. There is just something about shifters that makes me happy. I was really intrigued by the blurb on this book, because Raven was turned against her will, it makes for some seriously emotional times, and I love that. Also I liked the idea because our lead guy being a lone wolf, which is a complication in of itself since wolves are pack animals by nature. So when we meet Raven, it’s beyond clear she is in a bad spot, I mean she is literally running away from her pack. But hey, after getting to know Raven’s pack over the course of the book, it is totally understandable why she would want to run as fast as she could in the opposite direction. I liked Raven, she’s a strong woman. She is in an impossible situation, she wants to do […]

Devil’s Mark by Megan Crane

A few years ago I went through a massive pile of books about MC’s, I loved them, could not get enough, and then I burnt myself out. I’ve started reading them again, and thankfully I am remembering why I loved them in the first place. Plus I really liked the heroine in this book is basically like the town princess, so the idea of her hooking up with the town bad boy is kind of hot. When we first meet Killian, or “Uptown,” as he is known to the club, he has a big chip on his shoulder. He definitely didn’t grow up easy, and he is finally at the point where he can bring down the hurt on the town mayor. As it turns out Killian and the mayor have a past, the mayor used to provide Killian’s mom with drugs and hook up with her. Totally understandable why he would hate the mayor. So when the mayor’s daughter Holly walks into the club bar looking for a job, Killian sees this as the perfect opportunity to get back at the mayor and maybe even get Holly into his bed. I really liked Holly, she had a lot more backbone then I was expecting out of her. She grew up a princess, always following the rules, doing exactly what he dad wanted her to, basically little miss perfect. And now that it’s come out that her father isn’t the guy she thought he was she is feeling kind of […]

The Detective by Vanessa Waltz

I’ve been really into cop books lately, like super into them. I don’t know something about a guy in uniform has seriously been working for me. So obviously with a title like, The Detective, I of course was going to pick up a copy of this book. So when the book starts off you are thrown right in the middle of everything, you’ve got cop Heath tangled up in the sheets with his mark, Jasmine, or is her name Jade. As it turns out Heath is assigned to find Jade and bring her back home, because wouldn’t you know, she’s a missing person. He wants to know why she left home and she isn’t talking, but he’s beyond determined to get to the bottom of it. Jasmine and Heath have this kind of push and pull relationship. Sometimes it worked for me and sometimes it didn’t. Jasmine has her secrets and I get that, and honestly I’m more on her side during this. But for Heath man oh man can this guy be pushy. I get that he has a job to do, but he is doing this job to get back and the guy Jasmine left behind. He’s so pushy to the point that I almost don’t like him. I mean he shows up everywhere. Joins the committees that she is on, eats where she works, etc. And then just when I think I’ve had enough the ex rolls into town and my opinion of Heath gets way better. […]

One More Taste by Melissa Cutler

This book appealed to me because lately I have been missing home (Texas) and the heroine in the story is a chef, and lately I have been spending a lot of time in the kitchen trying to learn new things about cooking. I didn’t realize it until I was a few chapters in, but the setting and some of the characters really seemed somewhat familiar to me, and that’s when it hit me. I read the novella for this series a while back, I think sometime last year. Once I figured that out, I was actually pretty excited to see how things were going to turn out. So Knox is basically coming back to his family’s home, but not the family home where he grew up. His father was basically pushed out of the family and all the family money that went along with that, and ended up a bitter man. After his death Know swore to himself that he would make things right. Now a very successful businessman, he is set on getting back what his father lost, which means taking over the Briscoe Ranch Resort. I have to admit I could understand where Knox was coming from. Granted he didn’t have all the facts, he didn’t know why his dad was pushed out and no one would talk about it. His Uncle Ty, for the most part was pretty welcoming, but he was kind of a jerk, he doesn’t think very much of a his daughter, and honestly […]

Safe From Harm by Kate SeRine

Who doesn’t love a man in uniform, I know I do. I picked up this book because frankly, I’ve been in the mood for a little law and order type suspense, who did and why, and will they be caught. The thing about this book is that you know who the bad guy is right from the beginning, the thing that keeps you guessing is trying to figure out how or who he is going to strike at next. So when the book starts we start in the past. Gabe and Elle are both eating at a local diner, Gabe with their mutual friend, Gabe runs out to his car for something, and while he is outside there are shots fired. His friend dies. It’s really quit horrible, and you can tell how much this man’s death affects Gabe. Even though Elle and Gabe have a strained relationship (she seems to seriously dislike him), they come together over their grief. Fast forward to present day and its been like a year, the trial of the man responsible is over. Everything should be great right? Wrong, now that the trial is over, the man responsible, well his family is after vengeance. The stakes are high in this book, and early on Gabe is shot, so during a lot of the book Gabe feels like he has been sidelined. You can tell he wants to be out there getting justice, when reality is he is stuck at home getting better. Gabe is […]

Sweetest Taboo by J. Kenner

So we are back with the final installment from Jane and Dallas. Things have really changed with these two since the first two books, and if you are thinking you can walk into this book without reading the other two first, you are sadly mistaken. You do get some more fun cameos from other characters from J. Kenner’s books, so be on the lookout for that. Don’t read this review if you haven’t read the second book yet, spoilers from that book are in this review. So once we pick up in this book Jane has gone missing and to say Dallas is going out of his mind with worry would be an understatement. Dallas and Jane are finally out in the open, their parents have cut them off financially, and the media is all over their story, but these two don’t find happiness right away. Thankfully Jane doesn’t stay missing for very long, but it puts all the more pressure on Dallas and Jane to figure out who was behind all these events in the first place. There are some heartbreaking scenes with these two as the book continues. Certain people become implicated in the plot, people that both Dallas and Jane are close to, and seeing how they react to those things, how they handle it is sometimes very sad to read. Also the strained relationship between Jane and Dallas and their parents is also hard to read, especially with their dad. I mean I wish he would […]

Un-Shattering Lucy Review

I don’t know about you guys, but I always worry about the end of a series, I mean I am always thinking, is it going to end the way I want it to, or will I absolutely hate it. Honestly, when it comes to this book, it was a great ending for the series. I can honestly say I think this book made me feel more than any of the others. I mean this book is without a doubt so heartbreaking in so many places, but it wasn’t just said, there were a lot of moments of hope and love, and it all just kind of worked. I think because life in general is kind of messy, this book did a great job at feeling authentic. So Lucy, oh sweet Lucy. I know she had kind of rough beginning in her life, and she really has come so far, with such a great family and support network, she’s just such a great girl, and all the while she has this one big secret. And of course after prior events in the previous books, when this book starts, dang, my heart just broke for her. I mean she is literally just going through the motions. And its so sad to see how she has completely pulled away from her family, her family that she was once sooooo close to, her isolation is just almost hard to read. And of course she’s heartbroken and miserable, and that’s even harder to read. You […]

Wait by A.L. Jackson

I have read a few books by A.L. Jackson, and I always have to prepare myself before I read them. She writes books that tend to have a lot of pain in them, but there is always a light at the end of the tunnel, and I like going along for the journey the characters make to get over the trials of their lives. So when I started this book, that is exactly what I was expecting, and I was not disappointed. So this book could be a called a second chance romance, because our main characters have more than a little bit of history together. Edie and Austin are both siblings of people in a rock band together. Which basically means when they were younger they were exposed to things they probably shouldn’t have been, for Austin that meant drugs and alcohol. And for Edie, well it meant being around people she should in no way have ever been around. Edie and Austin both carry some serious scars with them, Austin blames himself for the death of his brother, and Edie has to live with a traumatic experience that haunts her to this day. These two did not part ways on happy terms, Edie felt that Austin betrayed her trust in regards to her secrets. Both of them left there families behind (at different times) and tried to start over. Which brings up to present time. Edie is living a life in a seaside town and has a best […]
