Big news! Smartypants Romance books are now available in Kindle Unlimited!

Launch1

I was so excited to find out that the folks behind Smartypants Romance have done something fantastic to help us get through this strange and difficult time: they have made the entire Smartypants Romance collection available in Kindle Unlimited for at least the next three months! This is a wonderful opportunity! I was able to read many  of these books as ARCs before they were released, but I missed a couple and I can’t wait to check them out in KU.

In addition, three books have already been released as part of the Spring launch, and these are also available in KU. The remainder of the books that have yet to be released will enter KU one week after their release on other platforms. Links for all available books can be found below.

My favorites from the Fall launch are Prose Before Bros by Cathy Yardley, and Happy Trial by Daisy Prescott, and so far from the Spring launch, Code of Honor by April White.

Book Review: Code of Honor, Smartypants Romance Cipher Security book 2, by April White

cs-code-of-honor copy (1)

5 of 5 suspenseful stars

Since this was a Smartypants romance book, chances were good that I would like it. However, I was happily surprised that I LOVED it! I haven’t read any other books by this author, so I’m definitely looking forward to going back to the first book in the Cipher Security series, Code of Conduct.

I used to read a lot of mysteries and suspense stories: Mary Higgins Clark, Patricia Cornwell, Anna Rivers Siddons, Nevada Barr. Since getting back into romance books, I haven’t read a lot of suspense, but Code of Honor is a nice mixture of the two. Is it a romance book with suspense, or a mystery with a side of romance? Either way, I loved it. It was fast-paced, and interesting, and fun, with a dash of sexy sprinkled here and there. I liked Anna and her relationship with her twin sister, Collette. I loved Darius, and the peek into Iranian culture that his character and his family gives us. I loved that Anna referred to him as a Disney prince throughout the story. It really did paint a lovely picture.

The thing I like best about books from Smartypants Romance is that they often contain characters we love from the Penny Reid Universe, in this case, Cipher’s two big kahunas, Quinn and Dan. April White captures them both perfectly, and as I read Dan’s lines, I could hear them as if they were spoken by Stephen Dexter, who narrated Dan and Kat’s book in the Knitting in the City series, Marriage of Inconvenience. It was a wonderful, unexpected bonus.

When I finished the book, I was all set to give it four stars. Then I read the acknowledgments, which bumped it up to five stars for me, because the mystery in the book was based on REAL LIFE EVENTS. Now I want to read the book all over again, after I’ve read Code of Conduct, of course! Thanks to the author for the opportunity to read and review this book.

New Release! Code of Honor by April White, Cipher Systems Book 2, a Smartypants Romance book

CS02-RELEASEBLITZ-FB

Code of Honor, an all-new standalone in the romantic suspense Cipher Security series from April White, is LIVE!

cs-code-of-honor copy

A painting, a panic room, a thief, and her lover … whose job is to catch her.

There are three things you need to know about Anna.

1) She’s a bounty hunter with adrenaline junkie habits,

2) She’s the “awkward” twin, and

3) She’s a thief – kind of.

Darius designs security systems for Cipher Security, and the strange and remarkable woman he met the night the painting was stolen is as intriguing a mystery as his hunt for the thief is.

But the lady has no filter, and she knows she can’t lie to the man who looks like a Disney Prince and kisses like fairytales are true, so she runs from the one person who may actually see her as the heroine of her own story.

‘Code of Honor’ is a full-length contemporary romantic suspense, can be read as a standalone and is book #2 in the Cipher Security series, Knitting in the City World, Penny Reid Book Universe.
