Now he’s BFFs with the kitten’s two little girls and finds himself falling for their gorgeous mother, who couldn’t think less of him.
Divorced mother Jessie Connelly wants nothing to do with men like Zach. He’s sexy and charismatic and bad news, just like her ex. But her girls adore him, and he’s doing a good job filling in for their deadbeat dad. Then a snowstorm brings out the best in both neighbors, who, it turns out, have more in common than their mutual attraction…
So when Jessie’s past threatens her and her girls, Zach is determined to do whatever it takes to protect them—and live happily ever after with this family he has made his own.
Every Dog has His Day by Jenn McKinlay is super sweet, super funny, and super romantic. My heart melted with every page. Jenn McKinlay knew how to make me swoon, aww, and fall in love. Her characters are charming. The protagonists have real life issues that they’re currently facing. One is a single divorced mother of two young girls. The other is a man who never really had a family. Little did they know that fate had plans for them both. Next door neighbors who end up getting to know each other through the fault of two sweet girls and a little kitten. The bachelor has a dog that he’s home sitting and has become attached to…after meeting his next door neighbors and getting to them, Zachary can’t resist their charming nature. Jessie and her girls fall for Zach’s charming self and his good looks. But there’s more to Zachary than Jessie original thought. He’s a man with a good heart and a loving nature. Their chemistry explodes in this book. Humor was throughout the pages. I loved the snowflake making scene…Zach’s snowflake looked like a bird to the little girls but both he and the girls’ mother knew exactly what it was…I cannot mention it. But it’s worth reading to find out! Overall, I highly recommend this contemporary holiday novel to readers worldwide.

The San Francisco Thunder series: Score
Slammed by Victoria Denault is sexy as hell. It’s funny, sweet, and charming, too. A publicist and a hockey player team up as a steamy duo. Their lust and attraction create a heady combination for this tale. But rules are required and one of them could lose everything…
Victoria Denault’s writing is superb. I was cheering all the way for both protagonists. I laughed a lot through these pages. The tension between the hot hockey goalie and the daring publicist, was intriguing. I couldn’t stop reading…they kept the story alive. It felt three dimensional. Their family lives are different and each one is suffering from their own issue. Eli’s parents are strict and unemotional. They never supported him or his brother. Then there’s Dixie and her big bold family. They’re loud and annoying at times but overall, a super friendly group. Dixie’s father’s health seems to be taking a nose dive…her career isn’t what she thought it would be, and her role model isn’t the person that she thought either. Then, there’s the stupid rule of no relationships with the hockey team…yet, she and Eli are breaking it anyway. Eli got cut upon the ice awhile ago and it haunts him. He hasn’t been the same college hockey guy since the accident. Dixie pushes his butt into accepting help from a sports psychologist. As their heat builds so does their secret relationship…there will come a time they have to let it out or break it off…
Neither Dixie nor Eli want to let go…
Slammed is one of the best sports romances that I’ve read in a long time. Victoria Denault knew how to draw my attention to the characters and their issues. She was a pro on hooking me onto the plot. It went by so fast, I couldn’t believe it. Overall, I highly recommend this sexy unforgettable novel to all.
Two HOT cowboys. Two tough-as-spurs heroines. Two steamy romances in one book that will leave readers breathless…and begging for more.
COWBOY AND THE CAPTIVE
Melina is one of two gorgeous twin daughters, the clever and considerate one who always spared her parents the humiliation of what her sister Maria had wrought. But now, Melina is finally ready to stand up for herself and seize control of her life—until she is kidnapped by a cowboy, named Jardin, who is dead-set on settling the score with her family. There’s only one catch: In capturing Melina, this tough, rough, hunk of a man has actually found a way to unleash her greatest fantasies, body and soul. . .
COWBOY AND THE THIEF
Beautiful, spirited Angel Manning has always longed to experience the power of her ancestors’ most precious heirloom. Her mother once told her that the legendary Irish torque would lead Angel to the one man worthy of possessing her heart. But when Angel learns that her father, now a widower, has sold the torque to the notorious two-timer Jack Riley, she is furious. Of course she plans to take back what is rightfully hers, by whatever means necessary. But the fate of the ancient Druids works in mysterious ways. . .Could it be that this slick, smooth-talking cowboy was destined to satisfy Angel’s deepest desires all along?
The Rugged Texas Cowboy by Lora Leigh is an interesting collection of two novellas. I found myself blushing, laughing, and enjoying the characters’ as they developed. Heat is sure to be found here, as well as intrigue. Both stories were realistic. I found myself feeling frightened, worried, and happy for Melina in the first tale. The woman in the next one, Angel, is just as tough as the first one was. I loved how Lora Leigh captured these women and made them feel so real. Their heroes were believable, too. Tough, cocky, and sexy these men would make any woman faint on site. They weren’t expecting the women they found yet once they met, they couldn’t let them go.
Cowboy and the Captive was about a young twin sister whose parents never loved her. She was the good twin. Yet her parents were obsessed with Melina’s evil twin. The evil twin had both her parents hooked on her finger. Melina was harassed into accepting jail time for her twin sister. Now, after another bad time, Melina’s parents are asking her to take the rap once more for Maria. Melina was brutally tortured and raped in prison for taking the rap for her twin the first time. Her parents weren’t there to help her nor did they care. All they are about is the drugged up, no good daughter…and when Melina is kidnapped for her safety…her evil twin goes in search of her. To have her serve another prison term while she goes free again…only Maria wasn’t counting on two cowboys…especially, on Luc. Luc would give anything to keep Melina safe. She was his. Sweet, compassionate, and sexy as hell. Melina and Luc have a connection. He’ll fight like hell to save her.
Cowboy and the Thief is full of fiery heat. A woman who can level any man. The heat the comes off the pages is intense. Both feel a pull but due to the cowboy’s reputation, Angel doesn’t want anything to do with Jack. Jack is a love them and leave them kind of cowboy. Until he meet one woman he can’t stop thinking about…Angel. Angel and her Irish language and charm have Jack wanting her more. She wants a happily ever after…and Jack wants only a one time fling. Fun, intense, and charming. Lora Leigh has presented her hero, Jack, with a female that matches his compassion and challenges him as a man. I loved the playful banter between the two protagonists. Overall, The Rugged Texas Cowboy is a must read. Strong female characters with matching male protagonists. Hot, hilarious, and thrilling to read. Lora Leigh has always been one of my favorite romance novelists. In this book, readers can see why. Her teasing words, vivid scenes, and intensity of curiosity sucked me into this collection. The characters…are ones that tugged at my heart and made me smile throughout the pages. I highly recommend this contemporary romance to readers everywhere.
In irreverent, laugh-out-loud style, Where Triples Go to Die illuminates the messy intersection of sports, race, and romance in contemporary college life. Black superstar Juke Jackson and white counselor Malcolm Wade, each facing relationship crises at home, forge a bond at school as Wade guides Jackson’s quest to join the legion of African Americans who transformed our national pastime. An array of intervening campus issues—date rape, unplanned pregnancy, revenge porn, academic integrity violations, and the aftershocks of war among them—will keep even readers unfamiliar with The Infield Fly Rule turning the pages to find out what happens next.
Where Triples Go to Die by Phil Hutcheon is a great read. It’s entertaining to follow. Sports never die out with fans. Here, readers get to explore a lot of real life issues. The struggles are believable. The characters make this an interesting journey. A contemporary piece of fiction that had me captivated page-by-page. The content held my full attention. It wasn’t the kind of book, I would normally pick up to read. However, it still grabbed my attention. Engaging, intense, and enough drama to keep those pages turning. Never a dull moment. Loss, friendship, and most importantly baseball are themes found inside this novel. Overall, it was good. I recommend it to those really interested in sports fiction.
New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter is back with a sizzling Original Heartbreakers tale about an icy war vet and the only woman capable of melting him…
With trust issues a mile long, Ryanne Wade has sworn off men. Then Jude Laurent walks into her bar and all bets are off. The former Army Ranger has suffered unimaginably, first being maimed in battle then losing his wife and daughters to a drunk driver. Making the brooding widower smile is priority one. Resisting him? Impossible.
To Jude, Ryanne is off limits. And yet the beautiful bartender who serves alcohol to potential motorists tempts him like no other. When a rival bar threatens her livelihood, and her life, he can’t turn away. She triggers something in him he thought long buried, and he’s determined to protect her, whatever the cost.
As their already scorching attraction continues to heat, the damaged soldier knows he must let go of his past to hold on to his future…or risk losing the second chance he desperately needs.
Can’t Let Go is a sexy as hell kind of book. This contemporary romance will play with readers’ minds. Ryanne is a strong female protagonist. She has tattoos and works as a bartender of her own pub. The Scratching Post. Ryanne is also a cat person. A complete animal lover. She doesn’t know much about animals but when they’re innneed, she wants to help them. Like the female pregnant cat by her pub.
Oh, and there is Jude. A hot male warrior who is as tough as steel. But he doesn’t scare Ryanne. In fact, he has to come to her rescue. She placed herself into the line of danger. And now, it’s up to Jude to protect her. Jude, already lost a woman and his kids. He feels like a failure and still carries the heavy weight of their deaths.
The plot sounds good. It’s steady. Not fast-paced like I would have liked. It does provide both emotional and physical risks on both of the protagonists’ parts. They have to fight for what they want. Ryanne wants Jude. Most of all, she wants him to be happy. Jude, only knows pain. He’s lusting after Ryanne who makes him feel things he doesn’t want to feel. He tries to stay away and not care about her. But fate intervenes. Neither one can let go…
Overall, the plot was believable. Not addictive but good. I recommend Can’t Let Go to others.

The Author says, “When I retired from a twenty-five year career as a forensic scientist in southern California, I took home a treasure-trove of story ideas. I’ve been there, I’ve collected that and I’ve weathered the subsequent cross-examination, too. When I cooked up The Criminalist, I wanted readers to feel what it was really like to work in a crime lab. I drew from the colorful personalities I had worked with and blended in scenes from real-life cases. The story includes several strong female leads and a plausible, suspenseful plot. There are a few graphic (but not gory) crime scenes and a dash of courtroom drama. Running throughout is an engaging, romantic thread.”
John Houde, author of the award-winning nonfiction book, Crime Lab: A Guide for Nonscientists, has had a career in forensic science spanning four decades. Now he draws upon his experience to spin an intricately woven adventure in the world of truth and lies, love and hate, science and crime…
The Criminalist by John Houde is an interesting crime novel. Forensic science lovers like myself will enjoy this read. Similar to CSI Criminal Minds this novel demonstrates forensic science in a realistic setting. The suspense builds up as I progressed through the pages. The plot was exciting. Crime, drugs, and a disappearance that kept me intrigued. I liked the forensic scientist, Paul Connert. He is a likable character. It is his duty to investigate the case of her missing sister. Intense, frightening, and very believable. John Houde has created a tale that sent me straight into the book. I was hooked. Visa is another main character, that I liked. Her personality is great. The book brought issues like drugs and sex trafficking out in the open. Overall, it stunning, and I recommend it.

Love in the Deep South (A Memphis Hood Tale) is a wonderful novel detailing the lives of those who live in Memphis. The language was beautifully done. The charcaters were believable. I felt as though the writer, N.L. Hudson, transported me from my seat straight into her book. Once inside, the drama was thick, entertaining, and well-told. However, the content is graphic and recommended for those 18 and above. Sex, drugs, and murder inside….overall, I recommend this African American novel to readers everywhere.

Pain-Killer by Kindra Sowder is out of this world. A talented new writer who leaves readers hanging onto every one of her words. Once the book is opened, readers are led into a fast-paced, dark yet edgy world. Horror, blood, and nightmares. The action is plentiful and it seems the pages go by faster than readers think.

This Too Shall Pass by Milena Busquets is a deep emotional journey. Readers like myself won’t ever forget it. Milena Busquets brought me to Spain. A place where the events were happening. This was a tale of a forty-year-old woman who has just lost her mother. The daughter is speaking about her life and journey to her dead mother. The shock and sadness that the main character felt and thought became my own feelings. The point of view from the daughter was interesting. I found myself lost in this woman’s despair, discovery, and life. Lots of sex within this read. I enjoyed reading this summer novel. It was definitely a refreshing story from what I have read in the past. The tale is about love and loss. Deep, thoughtful, and complicated. The scenes played before me…but it was like getting tiny glimpses into the forty-year-old woman’s life. I wished it went deeper into how she felt when she did have sex or what made her happy…every other book I have read there was at least one thing that made the main characters happy. Maybe, in this tale, it was Blanca’s mother that made her happy. Once her mother died, it was like everything didn’t have any meaning…Overall, I recommend this novel to all. It definitely has kept me guessing.

The Duke of Golden of Golden Shire by Nicole Strycharz is one phenomenal read. Talk about wow…Instantly, readers are plunged deep into the plot…and straight into the characters shoes. I cried, laughed, blushed and felt frustrated in more ways than one. Readers will need a tissue box for this remarkable story. I couldn’t stop reading once I opened up the book. The heat, hot sex, and emotional journey, was a million times that of any other novel I have ever read. Those most talked about movies that move the audience in ways that you can’t stop thinking about them…well, The Duke of Golden Shire is exactly that. I finished it in one night and haven’t stopped thinking about it since then…Nicole Strycharz is beyond talented.

The female character, Isabel, is the only female working in an all male dominated area. Game software. She designs games and is now in the manager position. Before moving to the PI Games she worked at another company. A company where she experienced a disastrous relationship which then lead to sexual harassment. The sad part was that the Human Resource person told her that words weren’t much of a harassment and that they wouldn’t take her complaints seriously. Isabel ended up taking action that suited the company better than helping solve her issues at work. This past life experience has left her feeling like an ice queen at work. Acting as sexless as possible to survive working in the gaming industry surrounded by all men. An area that showed me that was hard for any woman including Isabel to be taken seriously by men as a professional. Her hard work pays off…but there’s one employee who makes her uncomfortable…will she face up to him or let him continue his harassments against her? The other part to this exciting tale was the trip to DiceCon and that’s where everything heats up…Isabel wants to let loose for once and three of her teammates get her in on a game that has her meeting the one man that might just be a forever thing…a man that can not only make her feel like a woman but also respect her in the industry. That combination alone would make any woman’s knees go weak. Isabel and Caleb are a perfect couple. Their journey was realistic and believable. The pages got hotter with every turn….and the plot sets readers on the edge of their seats wondering what comes next. Even Odds by Elia Winters is by overall, a hot and brilliantly well-written geeky romance that all will enjoy. I highly recommend this novel to readers everywhere.
A striking literary debut of love and mortality, The A to Z of You and Me is the story of a man who doesn’t have much time, his love for a girl who isn’t there, and the game he plays while waiting that illuminates the devastating and beautiful turns of life. The A-Z game. For Ivo, it’s a way to pass the time, a way to avoid the pain and a way to think about what really got him here. His hospice nurse suggested it – think of a body part for each letter, and think of memories connected to each one. And so begins the revealing of his misspent life: the terrible teenage choices, friendships made and cracked, the love he’ll never get back. He remembers the girl who tried to help him, the friend who wouldn’t let her, and the sickness that chases him even now.

In a lyrical, captivating debut set against the backdrop of the Harlem Renaissance and glittering Jazz Age Paris, Joe Okonkwo creates an evocative story of emotional and artistic awakening.
On a sweltering summer night in 1925, beauties in beaded dresses mingle with hepcats in dapper suits on the streets of Harlem. The air is thick with reefer smoke, and jazz pours out of speakeasy doorways. Ben Charles and his devoted wife, Angeline, are among the locals crammed into a basement club to hear jazz and drink bootleg liquor. For the aspiring poet, Ben, the swirling, heady rhythms are a revelation. So is Baby Back Johnston, an ambitious trumpet player who flashes a devilish grin and blasts jazz dynamite from his horn. Ben finds himself drawn to the trumpeter—and to Paris where Baby Back says everything is happening.
In Paris, jazz and champagne flow eternally, and blacks are welcomed as exotic celebrities, especially those from Harlem. It’s an easy life that quickly leaves Ben adrift and alone, craving solace through anonymous dalliances in the city’s decadent underground scene. From chic Parisian cafés to seedy opium dens, his odyssey will bring new love, trials, and heartache, even as echoes from the past urge him to decide where true fulfillment and inspiration lie.

Inside Shoe Fetish 2, readers will get a glimpse into three women’s lives. Friends who have to go about their life journey finding their way through it all.

Readers will be intrigued by Eva whose cooking skills will make anyone’s mouth water…especially that of a hot sexy man who heats up her dreams. Gabe is soon led to Eva and unlike most romances..this woman has a lot more than looks that attract a red-blooded male like him. But what fate holds in store for them both is one, readers must find out on their own. I absolutely loved reading this title..the cover and name of the book fit in perfectly with the story and its characters. Spicy, sensual, and masterfully woven, The Beauty and the Feast, is definitely a must read for all.
Not looking for love.
Follow rules and restrictions.
Only fun. No feelings.
Forever–not an option.
They were all just a number.
Dash Oliver and Willow Dane both shared the same philosophy.
That is, until a merger of sorts.
Thrown together by fate or serendipity, was their connection… their chemistry… their compatibility enough to convince them that their rules were made to be broken and that they belonged together?

What book are you currently reading? Did you liked this book or hate it? And why?
I currently read a novel that I just received the other day in the mail. It’s called Faux Happiness. The story was compelling. It lured me in from the beginning leading to asking why. Why did it happen to the character? Will she make it through it? How does it affect her future? A story about a young girl who was raped by her cousin. It doesn’t matter what your skin tone is, rape still happens to young girls and boys all over the world. The novel brought to my attention the bad things that still go on, while I am living my safe life here in my small rural town. I would love to say my town operates backwards and is the slowest and most boring place to live in ever, but at least it’s safe. Safe enough that I never worry about being raped. Or killed. Or robbed. Or beaten to death. After reading this small but well written story. I realized that crimes are still happening. And what I am doing? Going about my life like their isn’t a single worry. But there is. Terrorists attacking nations all over, rape happening in side of family homes, and little babies dying before they take their very first breathe into the world.
Another novel that I read before this one that I recently wrote a book review for was called Count Your Blessings by Sharon Sala. Her novel was the hard and real truth on what happens within our world every day. Cheating among spouses. A woman marries a man who is a preacher and then finds him cheating on her. Would you think that a good man who is head of a church would commit such a crime? No! I surely hope one wouldn’t. But it opened my eyes to the harsh reality of the cruel world we all live in today.
Another novel that I read before these two is called Barking Madness. A YA novel that tells a story about a young girl who suffered in the past from a father who was crazy and attacked his own family. And now as a teenager, with a new father, move with her mom and little sister to a new place. Little does she know that the terrifying monster who has wrecked her life as a kid and now as a teen was her father who was released from prison. She remembered being attacked by a wolf and soon believes that she is a monster too. She believed that she turned into a monster at full moon and killed her friends herself. But it was actually her father who did. This is another hard fact to consume. The psychological part of those who enjoy killing. But the girl didn’t watching her friends die. She wanted to be normal to be good. And the bigger question is did she actually turn into a wolf? Or was it all part of her mind? And if part of her mind than does that mean she has inherited a part of her dad’s psychological state? And what about her one friend who thinks he saw her turn into a wolf? Does that too make him crazy? Or was it an overreaction to fear and teen hormones hitting sky high?
These three novels are 5 star reads. I would highly recommend them to all readers. I enjoyed reading these because each one was unique and brought to life the stories and characters deep inside the plots waiting for us all to discover and uncover the real truths. Each author as brilliantly spun a marvelous story the teaches us all something about the real world in which we live in today.
