Review of The Dating Alternative by Jennifer Woodhull

4.5 of 5 fun, fast-paced stars

This is my first time reading a book by Jennifer Woodhull, and I am very interested in reading more of her work. I read it in about 24 hours, and enjoyed it a lot. The storyline was a new take on an old theme: Friends-with-Benefits, but with a fun twist. I liked “Cheese” and “Max” very much. I enjoyed their relationships with their friends and family, especially “Alexander’s” spunky grandma.

There were a few jaw-dropping “no way!” moments, and an expected twist. A couple of times, something happened that maybe crossed the line into unbelievability. For the most part, this was a fun, interesting, fast-paced story. This author writes “sexy times” really well, and I’ve found that not all authors do. Thanks to Netgalley for the opportunity to read and review this terrific book.

Cover Reveal for The Last Wingman by Daisy Prescott

We are so excited to be sharing with you the cover for THE LAST WINGMAN by USA Today bestselling author Daisy Prescott. THE LAST WINGMAN is the final book in the Wingmen series and will be published on March 7, 2019.

About THE LAST WINGMAN

Jonah Kingston is the last wingman standing.

June Moxee doesn’t care if he’s the last man on earth.

I haven’t exactly avoided relationships, but love has never been a priority. Solitude doesn’t bother me and being alone doesn’t mean being lonely. Until she moved to the island and I had to reconsider everything.

June seems content running her yarn shop, knitting with the local church ladies, and avoiding me. She’s a temptress in a handknit sweater. And for some reason, she’s not a fan of mine. It might be the tattoos. Or the beard. Or the fact that we’re polar opposites.

A woman has finally caught my attention.
Too bad she thinks she hates me.

Good thing I’m stubborn enough to try to change her mind.

The Last Wingman is the sixth standalone, lighthearted small town romance in the Wingmen series. You do not have to read the previous books first to enjoy this book.

Book Review: Hate Notes by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward

4 of 5 stars

Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward team up to bring us an enjoyable story of two people finding their soul mate.  The story moved along and didn’t drag you down with tedious transition details. The main characters have easy to like personalities that come through in the writing. I read this one in two days.

**Potential Spoilers**

Here is the set up. Charlotte recently went through a breakup and had to also leave her job. She brings her wedding dress to a second-hand store and leaves with another dress she couldn’t walk away from. Inside the dress is a blue note from a man to his bride to be. Charlotte embarks on a journey to find this man. And so the story unfolds. Reed is successful in the field of real estate. He recently went through his own break up and is adamant he will not enter into another relationship (you’ll have to read to find out why). After meeting Charlotte, this all changes.

You’ll enjoy this one!

Book Review Halfway to The Grave (Night Huntress #1) by Jeaniene Frost

 

night huntress5/5 Stars

If you’ve seen my Goodreads “read” shelf, you’ll notice I have an affinity for vampire romance. Why? Not exactly sure except they are usually action packed, and drag you into a different world for a while. Here are comments on my most recent find.

You had me at “Hallo, Kitten”! This book is so action-packed and there is no “good place to stop”. Very hard to put down! The plot moves along at just the right pace. I really liked the dialog and snarky comments from the characters. Shall I say it really sucks you in? 🙂 I couldn’t resist.

Quick summary: Cat is half human and half vampire. She has dedicated her life to hunting vampires (I won’t tell you how she became a half-breed, or why she hunts them, you’ll have to read to find out). The good stuff starts when she gets tangled with one captivating Master Vamp. Her adventures, private moments, and close calls keep this story moving. I never like to write too much about the plot of stories because isn’t that why we read, to see how it unfolds?  I know, this story may sound far-fetched, but this book will grab your attention.

I’m already through book 2 and started book 3. Will add a “roundup” post when i’m through with the series. I might have to read slow because I am really enjoying these books.

Review of “The One You Fight For” (The Ones Who Got Away Book 3) by Roni Loren

fightfor
The One You Fight For is the third book in a very interesting and unique series. The stories revolve around a group of four women – Olivia, Rebecca, Taryn and Kincaid –  who are survivors of a school shooting. They come together ten years later, during the filming a documentary about the tragedy. The first book, The Ones Who Got Away, was very good, and the second book, The One You Can’t Forget, was even better. I was very excited to read this third installment.

The couple in this story has a giant obstacle in the way of them getting their Happily Ever After: Taryn’s little sister Nia was killed in the shooting, and Shaw’s brother Joseph was one of the shooters. Of course, when they first meet, neither of them knows who the other is. When they discover their shared history, it’s too late because an emotional connection has been made. The solution? Call it a temporary fling, (Sure, because that always turns out the way it’s supposed to!)

Even though this story deals with a very heavy subject, it is surprisingly sexy and often funny. It’s full of twists and turns, and has a great cast of characters. It starts off a bit slowly, because there’s quite a bit of background to get through before the action really starts. It’s worth hanging in there for, though, and I’m looking forward to reading the next book in the series. Kincaid’s story is the only one left to tell, and I have a feeling Roni Loren saved the best for last!

Thanks to #netgalley for the opportunity to read and review this title.

I’ve blogged about one of my favorite authors, Penny Reid, before. In case you missed it, you can read my Author Spotlight here.

At that time, her wonderful book, Beauty and the Mustache, was free. If you didn’t get hooked at that time, you’ve got another opportunity! The book that started it all for me, Truth or Beard, is now free! Download it on Amazon here.

Please do yourself a favor and download this book, even if you don’t have time to read it now. You’ll have time to read it later, and you won’t regret it! It will start you down the road to becoming a member of the Penny-verse, and it’s a fun place to be!

Hoops Holiday release day

HH-BT banner.jpg

So the thing you need to know about Kennedy Ryan is that she writes books that deal with DEEP subjects. You don’t read a Kennedy Ryan book for a feel-good romance. You read a Kennedy Ryan book for real people dealing with real, heavy subjects…and to see them overcome their difficulties.

The first KR book I read was Long Shot. Wow, is that an amazing book but boy, it’s not for the faint of heart. It’s not your average romance book. Without spoiling anything, it deals with a pretty heavy subject, but it’s also a story full of hope.

Hoops Holiday includes a novella called Full-Court Press, which is a continuation of Kennedy Ryan’s Hoop series. It also includes some extras from both Long shot and Hoop Shot. I love authors offer us bonus content that can’t be found anywhere else! (Makes me feel special!)
