REVIEW: A Reckless Redemption by Laura Trentham


Can a single night’s deception lead to a lifelong love?

On the eve of her wedding to a man she detests, Brynmore McCann can think of only one way to escape—by ruining herself—but the local lads leave her wholly uninspired. Just as she’s ready to accept her fate, she spots Maxwell Drake, home after nearly a decade. Even though he had loved her sister when they were young, Bryn has always considered him hers, and she can’t think of anyone she’d rather have bed her for the first time. Only she never intends for him to uncover her real name.

Upon returning home, Maxwell is stunned by the news that his father may have left him an inheritance. As the unacknowledged by-blow of a local nobleman, Maxwell struggles with resentment over the way he and his mother were treated by his father and the village. To add to his troubles, he discovers the lass he spent an incredibly satisfying night with was not the village whore, but the high-born sister of his first love. He insists Brynmore travel with him to Edinburgh until they determine if she is with child. Because if she is, she’ll marry him whether she wants to or not.

Along the road to Edinburgh, they are attacked by persons unknown. As the list of suspects who want them dead grows longer and his worries deepen, Maxwell prepares for an even more personal battle—how to keep from surrendering his heart to Brynmore.

Warning: Contains a broody Scotsman, a fiery-haired lass, and a night of passion that changes everything. Readers are encouraged to bring a fan.

3 out of 5 stars

I'm a huge fan of Laura Trentham and while I had loved the previous book in this series, this particular title kind of missed the mark for me. While I really liked Maxwell and Brynmore as characters and I liked the premise of this book with Bryn trying to get out of an unwanted marriage and using Maxwell to do it, the rest of the plot just didn't work for me. For me that was because I feel like the story wasn't as fleshed out as I wanted and needed it to be. By the end of the book once everything was resolved and the couple got their HEA I was still kind of confused with what the people after them really wanted and the way that everything was resolved just left me with more questions. But despite that, I got to say that the author delivered when it came to the romance. I really liked these two as a couple and enjoyed reading about them together and that is why while I wasn't a fan of the suspenseful storyline that I still considered this book an okay read. Overall, I enjoyed reading another historical book by this author after such a long time, but at the same I was expecting more.

REVIEW: Long Shot by Kelly Jamieson


Waitressing at a tequila bar on the beach in sunny San Diego may not be what Reece Kirkwell wants to do forever, but for now it’s perfect—other than the flashbacks to the tragedy she caused in Boston. And the fact that one of her bosses is a domineering, first-class manwhore who’s as stubborn as he is sexy. If he’d just listen to her, she could double his business. But it would also mean getting close to someone, and that’s a risk she can’t afford.

Cade Hardy’s partners at Conquistadors are like his brothers, but he’s the money man trying to keep them all afloat. To blow off steam, he’s been sleeping around a little. The last thing he needs is business advice from their crazy-hot new waitress. Cade can’t figure Reece out. She’s smarter than she lets on, and she doesn’t hide her disgust for his active sex life. But after he recognizes her PTSD symptoms, Cade is determined to save her . . . unless she saves him first.

5 out of 5 stars

Long Shot was an amazing read and it was definitely my favorite book in this series. Everything about this book worked for me especially the two principle characters. I loved Cade and Reece so much! Cade was kind of grouchy at times especially when dealing with Reece, but the reasons for the way he behaved made sense since it was his way of dealing with his issues while also making sure his business and everything else in his life was taken care of. But Cade wasn't the only one with issues, Reece also had her issues. She was still traumatized by what had happened at her previous job and I understood her hesitation with wanting to be 100% in charge in the kitchen again, but at the same time I feel she should have been more honest with Cade and the guys about her history and her ideas about what she thought could help improve their business. But moving on from both of these characters hang ups. Despite the fact that both Cade and Reece had things they were dealing with, they were still both two very likable characters and I enjoyed reading about them immensely. And the close relationship that formed between them throughout the story was kind of perfect. It wasn't an instalove situation, but it also wasn't really a slowburn either in my opinion. Their romance was kind of somewhere in the middle and it really made me feel all the things because the connection between the two of them felt so real and never felt forced. Overall, this book was amazing! I loved it so, so much! And of course I really, really recommend it!

REVIEW

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

5 out of 5 stars

Hunt Me Down was a really entertaining novella. I had loved Show Me the Way earlier this year, so I loved returning to Gingham Lakes in this story. But as much as I loved returning to that world, what I especially loved about this book was that it was a quick and steamy read. Recently I've been craving more shorter, very steamy reads and this book totally fit the bill and overall reading it just made me so happy. Of course I really recommend this book and it has made me even more excited for the next Fight for Me book!

EXCERPT

In which Tiberius eats dinner with the hostile Pack and learns that not everything that is small and cute and furry is a puppy

Upstairs, the screen door opens and closes with a slam. Orders are barked out, and heavy treads stomp back and forth between hall and kitchen. As the Pack passes the stairs to the basement, the complex fragrances of the dishes they’re carrying waft down to us. Benches start scraping across floors, and I push Ti’s extra clothes into a bag and push the man himself up the stairs.

As soon as we reach the hall, the smile I hadn’t even known I was wearing fades. The Alphas of every echelon are standing around the heavy hand-scraped tables, each one of them holding tight onto their seaxs, the sharp daggers that all adult Pack wear at their waist.

There are strict penalties for attacking a table guest, and John will kill anyone who tries, but edgy wolves are edgy wolves and not always in control. I am this man’s shielder, and I face them, my thighs coiled low, my shoulders squared, and my lips curled back from my teeth, so these wolves know that I will fight, even in skin.

Tock, tock, tock.

Behind me, Ti is not even facing the right way. He’s looking at the table, opening up casseroles with one hand, while flicking his spoon up and down against his bowl with the thumb of the other (tock, tock, tock). As though there weren’t a hundred evil-eyed wolves staring holes into his back.

He lifts a hand-thrown lid and sniffs the saag paneer. Another basket with bread. A selection of Corningware casseroles hold cauliflower and lentil stew; sun-dried tomatoes and fresh cheese; corn chowder. Pasta with herbs. Egg salad.

“So…you’re vegetarians?” Ti says to no one in particular.

“Not vegetarians,” John answers. “But not carrion eaters either. You are our guest,” he says loudly to remind all the wolves with itchy palms about our very ancient and very strict rules of hospitality, “and free to hunt anywhere on our land, but Shifter? You must eat what you kill.”

“John?” I whisper, pulling at his elbow, and he bends down. “His name?”

John scratches his graying beard for a moment before pointing to one casserole dish in Blue Onion pattern. “Tiberius?” he says, “My personal favorite is the cauliflower and lentils. Be sure to add some toasted hazelnuts.”

Someone coughs, but John has broken the spell, and the Alphas reclaim their seats. Though when they do, they seem to have doubled in size, their broad shoulders and thighs now claiming whatever spare space we might have squeezed into.

I bend my head toward one of the empty tables. Those too will be full when the Offlanders come home for the Iron Moon, but for now, we sit there alone, side by side. The Pack starts talking again, bent low over their food because our table manners at home are not all they should be.

Naturally, there is a lot of talk about Ti, and while no one will question John’s decision, it is one of the peculiarities of the Old Tongue that the word giest means guest and stranger and enemy, so when someone speaks of our new giest, everyone understands the double meaning.

Then John says that’s enough Old Tongue for now.

A handful of pups scrabble up the stairs from the basement storage. They’re chasing something, taking wide frantic turns around the room.

“Mouse,” I whisper to Ti. “They don’t last long here.”

“She didn’t take me down,” Eudemos complains loudly.

“I mean, I was still standing.” He hacks at the big loaf of bread with his seax. “Where’sa butter? 

“I neber submided,” he insists, a pale-yellow crumb flying across the table. He uses his thumb to push the mouthful back in. “If what she did counts as submitting now, I think we should change the laws, thass all I’m sayin’.”

“Deemer?” says John.

Victor, our Deemer, our thinker about Pack law, crosses his arms and looks at the ceiling for a moment. “The law does say an opponent must be pinned down,” he says. “But while Eudemos was not down, he was very definitely pinned, and that is the more important part of the law.”

“Your Alpha agrees. The spirit of the law was upheld.”

And with that, Eudemos will not say another word about the matter.

The mouse finally caught, Golan trots up to John, followed by a roiling mass of fur. He lays his tiny prey at the Alpha’s feet. John looks at it, making sure the kill was clean and the mouse didn’t suffer, then he scratches Golan’s ear and wishes him good eating.

Suddenly, Ti jumps and lowers his hand to fend off a juvenile, who has her damp nose in his crotch.

“Rainy!” shouts Gran Moira. “Come here!”

Rainy cocks her head to the side and stares up at Ti before running off.

“Why do you have so many dogs?” Ti asks, his legs now tightly crossed.

“Nooo,” I hiss. “They’re not…” It’s too late. He didn’t say it loudly, but our hearing is very good, and one set of very good ears is all that’s needed. One by one, the Pack falls silent, appalled by what Ti has called our children.

Four fuzzy snouts peek over the arm of one of the fireplace sofas. Other pups glower down from the curved stairs that lead up to the children’s quarters.

Then the only sound is the brittle crunch of Golan’s sharp, white teeth.

“Excuse me, Shifter?” pipes a small voice. A ten-year-old girl with long, pale-brown curls, wearing shorts and a much-washed blue T-shirt with a picture of a pickle on it, scratches the back of her calf with a bare foot. “I am sorry I smelled your crutch?” she says, glancing back at Gran Moira, who mouths the word crotch with an encouraging smile. “But that’s what I said. ‘Crutch.’”

“It’s ‘crotch,’” corrects Gran Moira.

“Oh,” Rainy says, turning back to Ti. “I am sorry I smelled your crotch? I didn’t mean to be offensive. I am just in the Year of First Shoes?”

The Year of First Shoes is the first twelve moons in the juvenile wing, when you’re too old to scamper around and be fed tidbits from the table, and you’re too young to see even the remotest advantage to being human. It’s when we first wear shoes and clothes. 

It is a terrible, terrible time.

She thinks they’re a mistake
I've spent my whole life working toward my goals, being the best I can be at my job. Arrogant, persistent, pain in the skirt billionaire Colin Huntley isn't going to change that, even if he is the hottest man I've ever had the pleasure of working with. And pleasure is definitely something the man can deliver, without question. Our single, mind blowing night together was a mistake, though. A one-night stand brought on by a lapse in judgment. One I won't make again, so long as I stay strong as he starts his chase. Because when Colin decides he wants something, he gets it. And he's decided he wants me.
He always gets what he wants
Sloane McLaren may be the best VP I’ve ever had, but she taunts me every day in her tight little skirts and her librarian-fantasy glasses. Especially since that night. The one when I had her in my bed, in my shower, bent over my kitchen counter. I thought we were finally on the same page...until I woke up to cold sheets and an empty bed. She may assume it’s business as usual in the office, but I didn’t build my billion-dollar company on assumptions. I want her back in my bed, and I’m willing to play dirty to get her there.

MY REVIEW

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

3 out of 5 stars

So London Hale books are usually five star reads for me but this one kind of missed the mark for me a bit. As deliciously steamy as this book was I just didn't connect with the two main characters, Colin and Sloane, in the same way as I did with the other couples in the other London Hale books. But while I didn't connect with the characters in this book, I still liked the overall story and really enjoyed reading about them together. They really worked together as a couple and I like how their romance played out although I got to say that the end was a bit abrupt. Overall, this book was an okay romance read for me and while it's not my favorite London Hale book I still recommend it for fans of this series.

COVER REVEAL: Wanderlust by Lauren Blakely




They say Paris is always a good idea...

You know what I say? Paris would be a much better idea if I spoke the dang language. I can't even board the metro to visit the Louvre without ending up at the Moulin Rouge, and let's not even mention how I'll ever make it through a day at my new office.

Fortunately my company hooks me up with my own personal translator. Ooh la la. Or should I say bloody hell? Because he's charming, witty, and British, and he brings the city to life for me. Soon, I can order a croque monsieur hold the ham, discuss perfume with my co-workers, and barter at the outdoor market. I can also tell the sexy Brit by my side how much I want him to kiss me under the streetlamps.

Except there's a catch - Paris might be all we have.

***

One more assignment before I can take off on my big adventure...

And it's a good farewell gig too since my newest client is a fetching American who loves to explore the cafes and cobbled streets while I teach her the language of love. We fall into a fast and flirty friendship, but Paris has a way of making lovers out of friends, and soon we're spending our nights together too - très risqué. The trouble is, my wanderlust is calling to me, and soon I'll be traveling the globe to fulfill a promise I made long ago.

What could possibly go wrong with falling in love in Paris? Nothing...unless one of you is leaving.

REVIEW: Hot Shot by Kelly Jamieson


A former Navy SEAL and current bad boy bar owner learns to trust a free spirit in this steamy novel of unexpected romance from the bestselling author of Body Shot and the Heller Brothers series.

Marco Solis knows that if he gets too close to people they disappear. His parents were deported back to Mexico when he was fourteen, his fiancée married someone else while he was in the military, and now his business partner’s spending more time with his girl than with Marco. For better or worse, that’s how Marco meets Carrie Garner. She’s legitimately model-hot. She’s also a nut—a wild, artsy, unapproachable nut. So why is Marco so interested in cracking her shell?

Although Carrie Garner is a natural in front of the camera, her dream is to make it as a photographer. Soon she’ll be heading to Spain for design school, and she’ll miss her best friend, Hayden, like crazy. She’ll even miss Hayden’s boyfriend, Beck—but she won’t miss Beck’s partner, Marco. Bossy, brooding, and annoyingly sexy, Marco really pushes her buttons, though he obviously wouldn’t mind pushing her buttons in an up-against-the-wall, hard-and-fast kind of way. The craziest part is, if Carrie lets him do that, well . . . she may never want to leave.

MY REVIEW

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

4 out of 5 stars

Hot Shot, the second Last Shot novel by Kelly Jamieson was a fun contemporary romance. Having met Marco and Carrie in the previous book in this series, I was excited to see them paired up in this book. These two were absolutely perfect together. The chemistry that the author created between them in this book was off the charts hot and I couldn't get enough of it. I also loved all the back and forth between these two in this book. While I wouldn't call this book an enemies to lovers romance since Marco and Carrie weren't exactly enemies, but the book had the same thrilling and passionate feel that I usually get from those types of romances and I loved that about this book. It made this romance a book that I was incapable of putting down and still think of fondly even though it has been months since I read it back in May. Overall, this book was a very satisfying romance. I loved it a lot and really recommend it!

REVIEW: Can't Forget You by Rachel Lacey


YOU NEVER FORGET YOUR FIRST LOVE

MY REVIEW

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

5 out of 5 stars

Can't Forget You, the third book in Rachel Lacey's Risking It All series, was another absolutely phenomenal romance by this author. Out of the three friends this series focused on, Mark was the one I was most anxious to read about and he did not disappoint. His and Jessica's love story was everything I was expecting it to be and more. It is no secret that I adore second chance romances and this book was the perfect example as to why those types of romances have a special place in my heart. On top of being just an amazing second chance romance, I also really loved the part of the story focused on the land that both Mark and Jessica wanted to purchase to expand their businesses. I really enjoyed the way everything played out. The way the issue was resolved was perfect and made this story even more satisfying. I also absolutely loved the way that the author touched base on all of the previous couples in this series. Even though the book was about Mark and Jessica it always makes me happy to see all the other couples being happy together and the author did not disappoint in keeping us updated on everyone. But back to Mark and Jessica. Out of the the four love stories presented in this series, they are definitely my favorite. Everything from their history from when they were teens to them reconnecting and trying again as adults was absolutely perfect. This romance truly was a wonderful read and I really recommend it!

REVIEW: Crash and Burn by Rachel Lacey

MY REVIEW

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

5 out of 5 stars

Crash and Burn was an interesting book to read. I wasn't really sure what to think of it at the beginning because it's a departure from what I've come to expect from a romance by this author, but while it was different she still wrote it really, really well. I loved reading Isa and Nate's story. Their story was absolutely perfect. It was suspenseful, and sweet, and hot and not just because these two were stuck in the path of a forest fire. It truly was amazing how the author blended all the different aspects of this book together making it a romance that I was incapable of putting down and overall I was just really impressed by this book. Out of all of the books I have read by Rachel Lacey, I can honestly say that Crash and Burn is my favorite of her stories and I'm looking forward to reading more books like this from this author hopefully in the near future. Needless to say, I really recommend this book.
