Review: NO RESERVATIONS by Kristen Proby!


My Review: I've said it a million times, this series is one of my all time favorites. And I'm so glad Kristen Proby decided to do a novella so I could have something to tide me over until the next book. And I enjoyed Chase in Kat and Mac's book, so it was great to see him get his own story. 

This was a great read. I enjoyed Chase and Maura falling for each other - as much as they tried not to. It was fun and cute to see what sort of excuses they came up with to have to see each other again... especially since it went against their "no relationship" philosophies. I wish we had see more of the Seduction crew, but considering the length, I think if we had, we would have lost out on the time Chase and Maura needed to come together.

Cover Lovin': 1001 Dark Nights classic, and I love the color scheme!

Recommendation: This can be read as a stand alone, but check out the rest of the series, it's so good!!

Final Rating: FOUR out of FIVE stars (4/5)!! A great read - I can't wait for the next in the series!


Happy Reading!

About NO RESERVATIONS:

New York Times Bestselling author Kristen Proby takes us back to her highly acclaimed Fusion series.

Chase MacKenzie is not the man for Maura Jenkins. A self-proclaimed life-long bachelor, and unapologetic about his distaste for monogamy, a woman would have to be a masochist to want to fall into Chase’s bed.

And Maura is no masochist.

Chase has one strict rule: no strings attached. Which is fine with Maura because she doesn’t even really like Chase. He’s arrogant, cocky, and let’s not forget bossy. But when he aims that crooked grin at her, she goes weak in the knees. Not that she has any intentions of falling for his charms.

Definitely not.

Well, maybe just once…

Review: CAN'T GET ENOUGH by Gena Showalter!



My Review: I have to start by saying this series makes me swoon. Seriously, all of them have been five star reads. This author takes some classic tropes, such as the wounded hero, and gives them such a fresh spin that I am blown away by the characterization and the story. And this book is no exception. And of all these amazing heroes... Brock is my new favorite. I fell in love, almost instantly. As broken as he thinks he is, I don't think I've have ever read a sweeter, more dedicated hero. Not only has he been added to the book boyfriend list, but he  over right to the top.

Lyndie  and Brock are clearly meant to be. I don't think I have ever read a couple that were more perfect for each other. Really, this is one of those relationships that just works from the very first, it's their own imagined (or maybe not so imagined) hangups that keep them apart. I sat there, reading this book with a huge, dopey grin on my face almost every time the two main characters conversed. The teasing and flirting had me giggling like a loon,  while Brock's kindness and care had me swooning.

I cannot recommend this highly enough. And be sure to check out the rest of the series too!!

Cover Lovin': Fits perfectly with the rest of the series.

Recommendation: Each book in this series works as a stand alone, though they are close friends, so you will get some cross over of couples.

Final rating: FIVE out of FIVE stars (5/5)!! Once again, Gena  Showalter  has blown it out of the park!! An emotional ride from start to finish. 

From New York Times Bestselling author Gena Showalter, comes the next standalone romance in the Original Heartbreakers Series—CAN’T GET ENOUGH!

Grab your copy today!

   

CAN’T GET ENOUGH Synopsis:

New York Times best selling author Gena Showalter returns with a  sizzling Original Heartbreakers tale, featuring a rough, tough bad boy brought to his knees by... a kindergarten teacher? The king of one-night stands... To inherit--and destroy--his father’s business at long last, Brock Hudson needs a temporary wife. The ruthless ex-military heartthrob has always avoided romantic entanglements. Women are sweet, but vengeance will be sweeter. Or so he thinks. Only one woman will do, but the vulnerable beauty is more than he bargained for—sexier, wittier, and utterly irresistible.

The queen of the deep freeze… After an abusive first marriage, Lyndie Scott has sworn off relationships. But still she longs for a child of her own. Turns out, the brawler who used to frighten her with only a glance is the answer to her problems. She agrees to his proposal, with a caveat: spend every night in bed with her, then walk away for good when it’s time to divorce. Even if she’s pregnant.

A marriage of breathtaking inconvenience... As the days pass too quickly and the nights heat up, Brock battles a sense of possession and obsession. Will the former commitment-phobe convince his wife they’re better off together, or will she pack her bags and go?

BLURB
He thinks he's too big for me. I like a challenge.
On my 25th birthday I received a letter. My mother had left me a piece of land in her will-- the farm I grew up on as a child. Her last request was that I restore it... and how could I say no?
So I returned to my little town full of big memories. Nothing has changed here.
Except for Grant Werther.
When we were kids, I barely saw him. Now I can't miss him. The guy is HUGE; all muscle and beard, like some hardened mountain man. He's intimidating... and definitely sexy, in an alpha-male-cowboy kind of way.
Turns out his dad owns part of my farm and he's got the papers to prove it. That means I can't do anything without Grant's approval. On top of that, this jerk says I'm too “city girl” to be here.
And the way he openly stares at my ass in my cut-off jeans makes it clear what he thinks I'd be good at.
He's the biggest man I've ever seen and I admit, I'm curious what he's hiding in his boxers.
I didn't know he'd catch me peeking.
Now he won't stop teasing me. He keeps saying I could never handle him, that he'd break me in two. I know I don't have to prove him wrong...
But I want to.
This is a full length novel with a HEA and NO cheating!
Penny Wylder writes just that-- wild romances. Happily Ever Afters are always better when they're a little dirty, so if you're looking for a page turner that will make you feel naughty in all the right places, jump right in and leave your panties at the door!
         
EXCERPT
I round the edge of the house and stop dead on the path, forgetting for a moment about my rage. Hell, even about the pebbles I'm standing on.
In front of me, shirtless and sheened in sweat, is the most perfectly sculpted man I have ever seen.
He could be made of bronze the way he's posing now, weighing the axe over his shoulder as he eyes the stack of wood in front of him, balanced on the same tree stump where my Mama used to chop her own wood years ago. I can count every single muscle on his chest, from his pecs down his washboard abs to the perfect V that points like an arrow straight down, to a faint line of dark hair that I can't help tracing to the fly of his jeans.
Damn jeans.
It takes every ounce of my self-control not to drool when he swings the axe all over again, distracting me with the surge and flow of his biceps, the way even his back ripples with strength. He's got longer hair than I'm typically into, bound in a tight bun at the nape of his neck, dark and curly, to judge by the few flyaways that have escaped the hair tie.
I'm still gawking when he turns to look at me.
Holy shit. No way.
My jaw threatens to drop completely open because I realize—only when he looks straight at me head—I know this guy.
Grant Werther. The formerly scrawny kid who used to chase me around this lawn every summer while our parents talked shop. His dad owned a farm up the road, had the same business problems to deal with as Mom.
I have to say, he’s filled out nicely. His face, which used to be all thin angles, now features sharp cheekbones, a cut jaw and a fine nose. His eyes are dark too, piercing where they catch mine and lock, and his dark, full beard only accentuates his looks.
I swallow so hard I nearly gulp down my tongue in the process.
As for him, he shows no signs of recognizing me at all. Fine, if he wants to play at that game. “What are you doing here?” I manage to ask, finally recovering my wits.
“I could ask you the same thing.” He runs a hand over his hair, taming a few of those wisps, and narrows his eyes. “This is private property, Miss.”

Review: LOCKED-DOWN HEART by Tarina Deaton!

 


My Review: I wish I had paid more attention when I signed up to read and review this book - the main characters relationship actually begins in previous books of the series. And on top of that, the characters from past books play a large role in this book as well. But I managed just fine. Sure, I was a little confused sometimes, and it took me a couple chapters to get a real grasp on how everyone was connected. But I was so into the story line, and so eager to know what happened - I refused to let any unknowns distract me. Clearly this author had the goods, enough to keep me going no matter what, so kudos are in order.

We all know second chance romances are my jam, and this book hit all the right spots. I was practically drooling in the beginning because it was everything I wanted - he ghosted on her, now he's back and they meet unexpectedly, before he could meet her again on his terms. And just because she understands why, doesn't mean she's going to deal with that again - girl has more important stuff to deal with. I was seriously sneaking pages of this during any available break, because I had to know what happened. The romance really sold this one for me.

Cover Lovin': I can't get over the cover model's expression.

Recommendation: The two main characters have a past that appears in previous books, but you can manage without having read them.

Final Rating: FOUR out of FIVE stars (4/5)!! Great read, with a heart melting romance!


Happy Reading!

Review: CLOSE CONTACT by Lori Foster!


My Review: This series is like the best of both worlds - fighters and bodyguards. Lori Foster's heroes are always delicious, and while Justice still remains my favorite from the Body Armor series, Miles has made himself a very close second. Close Contact is instantly engrossing, since we open with Maxi awaking in her yard with no memory of the previous night, and no idea how she got outside and on the ground. She may not remember what happened, but she does remember that Miles always made her feel safe - so she knows exactly where to turn when she thinks her life is in danger. 

I think the suspense angle in this book is my favorite of the series so far. I was intrigued as soon as Maxi shared her story - things going missing, stuff suddenly in a different place the next day, etc. I had to know what happened, making this book hard to put down - which is always a great sign. I'll admit Maxi made me frustrated more than a few times, and she was my biggest issue with the book. I needed her to come to her senses about Miles so much faster than she did. But this is Lori Foster, after all, and everyone will get their happy ending, exactly when they're meant to, and not a moment before! 

Cover Lovin': Oh my, yes!

Recommendation: This can be read as a stand-alone. But I suggest reading the rest of the series because they're all so good.

Final Rating: FOUR out of FIVE stars (4/5)! Another amazing read by one of my favorite authors. I can't wait for the next one!

About the Book: 
There’s no resisting a desire like this…

MMA fighter Miles Dartman’s casual arrangement with personal shopper Maxi Nevar would be many men’s fantasy. She seeks him out, they have mindblowing sex, she leaves. Rinse, repeat. Yet lately, Miles wants more. And when Maxi requests his services via the Body Armor security agency, he’s ready to finally break through her defenses—and protect her day and night.

Receiving a large inheritance has brought chaos and uncertainty into Maxi’s life. Her ex has resurfaced, along with lots of former “friends,” and someone is making mysterious threats. Then there’s Miles, who doesn’t ask for anything…except her trust. Pleasure is easy. Now Maxi has to give her heart as well as her body…or risk losing a man who could be everything she needs.
