Heat: Firefighter of Montana Series book four by Karen Foley

29982659

Genres:  Contemporary Romance

The Blurb:

Callie McClain is back in Montana after a twelve year absence to care for her ailing father, despite the fact she can’t stand the cold and isolation. But in an ironic twist of fate, it seems Montana is finally giving her what she wants—blistering heat and a fiery glow that threatens to incinerate everything in its path. Wildfire. The only thing hotter than the advancing flames is the smokejumper who comes to her rescue, and suddenly Callie is finding reasons why Montana might just have everything she’s ever wanted.

Tyler Dodson can’t recall a time when he didn’t want to be a smokejumper. There’s nothing as dangerous—or as exhilarating—as jumping, until he rescues a pretty veterinarian from an advancing wildfire. He knows he shouldn’t get involved. He doesn’t need that kind of complication in his life, and distractions of any kind can be deadly in his line of work. So why can’t he keep his mind – and his hands – off of Callie McClain?

My Review:

 

Heat (Firefighters of Montana, #4)Heat by Karen Foley

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

“Heat” Firefighters of Montana is the fourth of five in this series. What a beautiful story! I can’t say enough about how much I love this series. All the novels in this series are written by different authors. This one was written by Karen Foley. Here we have the story of smokejumper/firefighter, Tyler Dodson and veterinarian Callie McClain.

Callie, born and raised in Montana, returns to her childhood home to take care of her father who is recovering from a massive heart attack. Callie puts her life on hold and leaves her home in California to help her father. She has no intention of staying permanently in Montana. In fact, she plans to convince her father to return to California with her. Of course he is stubborn and wouldn’t willingly leave his home. In fact, he nearly gets them killed when he refuses to leave their home which is a sanctuary for his precious wolves.

Tyler is a smokejumper. He literally jumps from an airplane into forest fires. I actually learned a lot about what smokejumpers do and I have great respect and admiration for how they put themselves in extreme danger. During a wildfire, Tyler is sent with a small crew to rescue a man and his daughter who are currently in the path of the fires. The first time Tyler sets eyes on Callie he is struck with a strange feeling and all his protective instincts come alive. Of course, Tyler and Callie can’t make a relationship work when he lives in Montana and she in California.

This was a sweet story of two people finding love and a way to make it work. It was not an easy journey for them. This was no insta-love story; it was realistic and their feelings for each other grew gradually, but were no less intense. When they finally came together…..well let’s just say this novel was appropriately named…HEAT…!!!

Tyler and Callie were good people and good for each other. They were likable characters and easy to connect with and it was sweet and satisfying to watch them find their HEA.

That being said, there was one small detail that bothered me in this novel. Tyler’s co-worker and friend, Ace, had his HEA in the previous book, “Ignite.” However, there were repeated insinuations throughout the book that he was still single. That annoyed me a bit but it had no reflection on how much I loved Tyler and Callie’s story.

30743508

Genres:  Contemporary Romance, Small Town

The Blurb:

He lives on the straight and narrow, but she’s determined to take the curves way too fast…

Librarian Hollie Bennett is used to being overshadowed by her older brothers. One’s a country star, one’s a former football star…and she’s just a sedate librarian with a secret thing for high-end lingerie and fast sports cars.

Until the night he saves her from herself, after she decides to go a little wild at a party. And the guy she ends up going wild with is the one she hates during the day—Rafe.

Accountant. Suit. Man with an amazing skill with his tongue that can’t be un-known no matter how hard she tries.

My Review:

Going Hard (Boys of Fall)Going Hard by Cari Quinn

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love this series!!! 5 Stars!!!!!

*There are nine books in this series by authors Erin Nicholas, Mari Carr, and Cari Quinn with three books releasing each time. “Full Coverage” released at the same time as “Wild Card’ (Mari Carr) and “Going Hard” (Car Quinn). These three can be read in any order however the previous six books in this series should be read prior. (See below for full list) Please note that these are standalone but in order to relate better to the characters mentioned in the books, (and there are a lot) I recommend reading them all; you won’t be disappointed.

In Quinn, Texas things are steaming up and I don’t mean the weather although it’s pretty hot there. Quinn is home to the nicknamed Boys of Fall and beloved high school coach Nicholas Carr. Coach Carr was always more than football coach; he was a father-figure and mentor as well. He was dedicated to be a good example to help his boys and other students as well, to see the error of their ways. Coach treated them all with respect and admiration and the boys returned that back tenfold. Coach meant the world to them so thats why when Coach had a heart attack and needed help with his ranch, the boys didn’t hesitate to return home to Quinn to help. Not all of Coach’s “boys” were football players nor were they all boys.

This was the last book in the series. This is one of my favorite series and I hate that it’s over!

In “Going Hard” by Cari Quinn we have the story of Hollie Bennett, younger sister to Colt (“Going Deep”) and Wade (“Going Long”) and the man she loves to hate, uptight, straight and narrow Rafe Martinez. Hollie is tired of always being good and living the boring life as she describes herself. There is a party girl living inside her just dying to be set free! She doesn’t want boring guys and boring sex. That includes Rafe. As Hollie starts to break free of the same old, same old, her sister-in-law Charlene, who is also Rafe’s sister, decides she needs a keeper.

Unknown to Hollie, Charlene recruits Rafe to spend time with her in order to keep her out of trouble. Does Rafe want the job? No way! The truth is Rafe has been attracted to Hollie for years and the one time they acted on their feelings turned out to be disappointing. Rafe was afraid to truly let his passion free with her and the result was a less than stellar sexual experience. As Rafe spends more time with Hollie, he tries unsuccessfully to fight his growing feelings for her. He has his reasons why they shouldn’t be together, even though he wishes for a second chance to love her properly. Hollie slowly breaks down his walls and in doing so, gives him hope they could have a future together. Rafe has never wanted another woman as much as he wants Hollie. So hopefully he won’t screw up a second chance. Their chemistry was off the charts, sexy and sensual. I loved their interactions and witty banter. If I had a complaint, it is only that this series is over.

I am so in love with this series, with this town.

Genres: Contemporary Romance, Small Town

The Blurb:

It’s been a tough year for Lorelie. Following her dad’s heart attack, she put her own life on hold, terrified of losing the most important person in her life. As her father’s health improves, Lorelie struggles to find her way back to life as normal. Her girlfriends insist the answer is simple. Get laid.

Enter Glen Rodgers, Wade’s former band mate. He met Lorelie briefly at a party she’d hosted for her dad and the woman made a lasting impression. When he returns several months later, intent on taking a break from his own screwed up life, it’s obvious Lorelie is just the cure for his blues.

“Wild Card” Boys Of Fall Series by Mari Carr…..

Not all of Coach’s “boys” were football players nor were they all boys.

There is one more book after this in the series. I hate to say goodbye to Quinn and all the hotties. This is one of my favorite series, ever!

“Wild Card” is the story of Lorelei Carr, Coach Carr’s daughter and the man she wants to call her own, Glen Rogers. Lorelei or Lori as Glen calls her, has had a stressful year worrying about her dad’s health and working extra hard on their ranch despite all the volunteers they have helping. But now it’s time, well actually past time, for Lori to take time for herself and get her life back to normal, where she was before her dad’s heart attack.

Glen Rogers is a friend of Wade Bennett (“Going Long”) and his former bandmate. Glen is taking some required time off from his current job; guitarist for a famous country music artist. Things are not in control in that area of his life and he needs to take a few steps back. So he decides a visit to his friend would be a good idea. Glad has visited Quinn, Texas before and liked the small friendly town. But more than that he was hoping to see Lori again who he met on his previous visit.

I loved Glen and Lorelei together. What started out as two people with smoking chemistry flirting, despite some obstacles in the name of Coach’s “boys,” became more to Glen and Lori. They fell in love despite knowing that Glen wasn’t staying permanently in Quinn. But when it came time for Glen to play his hand, he chooses the “Wild Card” and a love everlasting.

I am so in love with this series, with this town.

Full Coverage: Boys Of Fall Series By Erin Nicholas

30735678

Genres:  Contemporary Romance, Small Town Series

The Blurb:

You can take the boy out of Quinn, Texas, but you can’t take the love for sexy cowgirls out of the boy. Evidently.

Nolan Winters left his hometown after high school, wanting bigger things than Quinn could offer. Years later, he’s a popular journalist, reporting stories that stir him, and also a bestselling author to boot, working on his second book—a biography about one of Texas’ most beloved football coaches, Quinn’s very own Nicholas Carr. Now Nolan’s finding himself home a lot more often. For research. Yeah. That’s the story he’s sticking to. He’s not coming home for sexy, sweet local mechanic, Miranda Doyle. Nope. Not at all.

Randi’s a born-and-bred Quinn girl, more than content to stay there forever. Football, steady work, football, family and friends, football…the small ranching town has everything she needs. And lately, something she wants—Nolan Winters. Never much of an athlete, he’s asked football fanatic Randi for help on the sports details of his new book about Coach. The ins and outs of the game. It isn’t long before Randi would rather help the hot scholar in and out of other things…like her bedroom, and definitely his clothes.

She’s a small-town, C-average ex-cheerleader. He’s a big-city, A-plus bookworm. Their differences could keep their engines running hot…or steer them straight toward a crash and burn.

“Full Coverage” Boys Of Fall by Erin Nicholas…

Coach meant the world to them so thats why when Coach had a heart attack and needed help with his ranch, the boys didn’t hesitate to return home to Quinn to help. Not all of Coach’s “boys” were football players nor were they all boys.

Nolan Winters couldn’t wait to shake off the dust of Quinn, Texas and spread his wings in the world of Journalism. He didn’t hate Quinn, just wanted more from life then what he could find there. When his editor agreed to the idea to return to Quinn to write a commemorative book about Coach, Nolan was happy to. Although he had no desire to live in Quinn again, he had friends and family he visited as often as possible but never staying for any length of time. With the exception of when he was working on Coach’s book. Nolan would write the book, then leave. There was one perk about having to stay for a while…small town girl and Nolan’s high school crush, Randi. Randi who just so happened to be an expert on Quinn football.

Randi is a local girl who owns the auto repair shop in Quinn; she is the best damn mechanic in town! Randi is a hometown girl. She loves Quinn and its residents and its the only place she wants to call home. Because of her extensive knowledge of Quinn football and Coach, Randi is asked by Nolan to help with the book. Randi was happy to help but hesitant at the same time. Randi knows Nolan is in town only long enough to finish his book then he will leave again. Randi always liked Nolan and getting so close to him now would end up in heartbreak. Hers.

I loved Nolan and Randi together. They were a perfect match despite their differences and wanting different things out of life. Out of the two, Randi was the one with the stronger head on her shoulders. She was happy and content to stay in Quinn, while Nolan claimed he never wanted permanence there. Nolan made some poor choices and nearly lost the love of a special woman. So yes, Nolan pissed me off now and then but his big gesture in the end gained not only Randi’s forgiveness, but mine as well.

My Review:

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

“PS…You’re Mine” by Alexa Riley…..

Oh My God! This novella was adorable! It was super short but another sexy, dirty read by Alexa Riley. I still can’t believe for as long as I have been reading, I picked up my first ever read by Alexa only a few months ago. What have I been missing? What closet have I been hiding in? Well I am not hiding anymore and I am so addicted to her books!

Here we have the “pen pal” trope. this sweet story was about high school teacher Katie Lovely and Marine Sergeant Mark Gunner.

Katie’s English class is writing to members of the military as a friendly and supportive project. Somehow there was an extra name on the list so Katie decides to write a letter herself rather than a soldier being left out. Does she foresee what writing that first letter will gift her? Nope…

Mark has been in the military for a very long time but will be retiring soon. In fact he has one year left of active duty so his days in the desert are numbered. Something he would never expect to be doing is falling in love via Katie’s letters. Even being thousands of miles away from her doesn’t prevent Mark from the intense feelings he has growing of his sweet Katie.

I will add that these two lovable characters are physically apart for most of the book however, that didn’t matter at all. The development of their relationship was actually believable, sweet and steady.

BONUS: All though Katie and Mark’s story ends halfway through the book, Alexa Riley has given us a bonus story, “Snow and Mistletoe,” another quick and super cute read as well!

Furrever Yours: Grayslake: MoreThan Mated Kindle World by Georgette St. Clair

29746807

Genres:  Romance, Shifter, Novella

The Blurb:

Nurse’s aide Heather Appleby thought she’d seen it all on her late-night shift at Grayslake Memorial Hospital. Nailgun accidents. Sex romps gone wrong. People inserting things in unspeakable places. Then one night, a battered, unconscious girl is carried into the E.R. – and turns into a wolf right in front of Heather. Next thing she knows, Knox Carlson, the sexy, growly beast of a deputy who’s always ignored her, is sniffing around – and staking his claim on the curvy human.

Knox Carlson is an Alpha werewolf, and the first time he scented Heather, he knew she was his with a capital H,I,S. But she’s human, so their mating can never be – until he’s called in to investigate the disappearance of a wolf shifter female who’s run out on her arranged marriage. Now that Heather has learned the secret of shifters, he’ll have to claim her as his own or let her be put down – and he’ll take on every shifter in Georgia before he lets that happen.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Cute story! 4 Stars!!!!

“Furrier Yours” Grayslake: More Than Mated Kindle World, by Georgette St. Clair.

This was a short, sweet shifter story about Heather Appleby and wolf shifter Knox Carlson. I love these quick reads because they’re easy to dive into and you know what to expect…a short sexy read, not a complex novel. Don’t misunderstand, I love the complex novel just as much but sometimes I’m in the mood for a quick bedtime read. “Furrever” gives us a bit of angst and suspense, just enough drama to keep it from being boring.

Heather is a curvy nurse’s aide at the local hospital. When she is witness to an injured woman shifting into a wolf in front of her, she finds herself in danger because of it. Heather also finds herself the object of a lot of attention from the sheriff, Knox. Knox, who she’s had a unrequited crush on for a while.

Knox has loved Heather since he first laid eyes on her but he forced himself to keep his distance because he is a shifter and she is human. There are rules in the shifter world. If a shifter mates with a human she/he is obligated and expected to keep their secret or else the consequences are death. Knox didn’t want to put Heather in that position, so to keep her safe he stayed away. However, since she witnessed a shift, Knox must claim and mark her to keep her safe and protected. There are villains and a jealous ex in this story that helps to keep the pace steady.

I liked Heather. She was courageous, loyal and even protective. Knox was also protective, possessive and sexy. He was all the things we love in a Hero.

29604396

Genres:  Novella, Adult, Erotica, Shifters

The Blurb:

Bleu has been living an isolated life away from the clan of Grayslake. He’s a happy bear shifter, building furniture and being alone…until a little curvy woman literally crashes into his life. When he pulls her from her car after she wraps it around a tree, he is blindsided by the connection. Never before has he wanted a mate, but finding Lola changes all that.

Lola didn’t plan on her deadbeat mom blowing the rent and then skipping town, so she’s without a home. Again. But this time it’s going to be different. Hearing whispers of shifters in Grayslake, she takes off in search of something, anything, that can bring some light to her life. When her car slips and she ends up in danger, she never expects her rescuer to be the one to give her everything she’s ever wanted.

Will being snowed in lead to steamy nights and mating bites? You betcha!

Warning: This is a short shifter story filled with sweet cheesy possessiveness and lots of growling. Obviously. Go ahead and read it. You know you want to!

My Review:

Growling For Mine (Grayslake: More Than Mated Kindle World)Growling For Mine by Alexa Riley

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Steamy and adorable! 5 Stars!!!

“Growling For Mine” from the Grayslake: More Than Mated Kindle World series by Alexa Riley was a sweet, adorable story. I am so hooked on Alexa’s short, sexy, satisfying instal-love novellas. This story is the fated telling of bear shifter Bleu and how he finds his mate, Lola.

Lola was tired and frustrated with the circumstances surrounding her relationship with her and her mother. Lola’s mother, to put it mildly, was a loser and Lola had had enough. Lola packs her things and heads off in her old car. She is eager to get to the town of Grayslake where there are rumors of shifters living there. Lola doesn’t know what she’ll find; she only knows that something is calling her there. Approaching her destination, she finds herself driving in snow for the first time. In fact, Lola has never seen snow before this. Unfortunately, because she doesn’t have experience with driving in the icy fluff, too soon she finds herself in need of rescuing.

Bleu is a bear shifter with extremely powerful senses, especially hearing. From miles away he hears Lola’s distress and hurries to help. What he didn’t expect were the intense protective and possessive emotions that came over him as he saw her for the first time.

MINE…

From that moment on, this story was so sweet and sexy. Lola and Bleu had instant attraction that turned quickly into love. This novella will definitely keep you entertained and smiling. Unfortunately, we only get to spend forty-five pages with Bleu and Lola but that didn’t affect how much I loved this story. I can’t wait to read another one of Alexa’s novellas!

Sugar Daddies by Jade West

30816428

Genres:  Romance, Erotica, Menage, M/M Romance, M/M/F Romance

The Blurb:

A sugar daddy website doesn’t seem a sound basis for an A1 life plan, but I’m a small town girl with big dreams, and there’s this one advert, this one crazy advert I can’t stop thinking about…

Two hot guys seeking their Little Miss Right.

Someone who can entertain them, amuse them, fit in with their corporate schedule.

And sex. They want sex.

Lots of sex.

Bonus, right? One major dose of epic win.

Of course, guys like Carl and Rick have their conditions. One being that they come together, or not at all.

Hell, I can live with that.

And there are no skeletons in their designer closet, none that I can find.

Just two hot sugar daddies, with particular tastes, nothing to worry about.

Until Carl and Rick spill the big one, the one that sends the girls running. A whole string of them before me, running to the hills without so much as a backward glance.

Maybe I should run, too. Thanks but no thanks, see you around, guys, nice knowing you.

But I’m already in way too deep for that.

Warning – as with every other Jade West book, reader discretion is highly advised. This novel contains vivid depictions of MMF / MM relationships, and Jade’s characters, as always, have very filthy mouths. Mature readers only, please.

My Review:

Sugar DaddiesSugar Daddies by Jade West

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Absolutely loved this book!
5 Stars!!!!!
Standalone Novel for mature readers, contains explicit sexual encounters with MM and MMF menage.

“Sugar Daddies” by Jade Wet is the first novel I have read by this author. I wasn’t sure what to expect after reading the blurb; I just knew there would be a lot of sex. In truth I was pleasantly surprised. This novel had a great storyline. The characters were well developed and very likable, all with individual personalities. There were also secondary characters that added positively to the story. Was there angst? A bit, but not enough to stress me out.

Katie Smith was a young intelligent woman who loved all things equine, especially her horse Sampson. Katie needed money pretty quickly to make her dream of owning/running her own riding school come true. She wanted to be able to offer children and teens who wanted to learn to ride an inexpensive way. Katie finds a solution and she answers an add on a Sugar Daddy website. She’s never done anything like this but she is intrigued and wants to try. Of course the only reservation on her conscience is basically she’s receiving money for sex with two older men. Let me just say that Katie was not a prostitute and in no way did this story read as if she was.

Carl and Rick are currently in a longterm relationship with each other but they both agree that something is missing. They are bisexual and want a polyamorous relationship with a woman. So in order to find their “third” the men sign up with a Sugar Daddy Match website. Sadly the woman they have been seeing were poor matches and because Carl is disillusioned and disgusted, he wants to give up. Rick convinces Carl to give it one more try.

Rick and Carl are wealthy, good looking and very sexual men. Of the two, Rick was the most understanding, sensitive and generous with his heart. Carl was completely arrogant and alpha to the extreme but underneath that facade was a beautiful soul. God, I loved him! This story had some secrets, a small amount of angst, heartbreaking pasts and a hell of a lot of sex! Usually with these types of steamy, sex-filled novels there doesn’t seem to be a lot of substance. That being said, that was not the case with “Sugar Daddies.” This novel had it all. It had all the “feels” I look for in that perfect read. This was my first novel by Jade West but definitely not my last!

“The Lost Sheenan’s Bride,” Taming of the Sheenans Book six.
Jet and Shane’s story.
This can be read as a standalone however I recommend that you read all the books in the series. It will make this novel an even better read. I have been so in love with this series and we’re now on book six, sadly the last in the Sheenan’s series. However, Jane Porter has teased with a spinoff which I will impatiently wait for.

Here we have the story of Jet and Shane. Jet is the younger sister to Harley, who is married to the eldest Sheenan brother, Brock. (Brock’s is a Christmas story and the first in the series) Harley invites Jet to Marietta, Montana and gets Jet a teaching job. Jet accepts the teaching position and looks forward to a change in scenery. She is currently getting over a broken heart so she is looking forward to the change. The last thing Jet expects is to be intrigued by Shane, a man who just so happens to have alienated her inlaws, the Sheenan brothers. But Jet sees something behind Shane’s eyes that reveals a deep sadness. She believes he is not the bad guy her brothers-in-law claim him to be. Jet is smart and perceptive so she can see that Shane has secrets. But does that make him a bad guy?

Shane Swan, a successful author, came to Montana several months prior to work on his latest novel and he is currently renting the house on the Sheenan ranch. Everything is fine until Cormac Sheenan (Cormac’s book is also a Christmas theme and is book five in the series) finds something about Shane and the novel he is writing that he does not like or approve of. The Sheenans become angry and want Shane gone. In addition to that, they want Jet to stay away from him as well. Jet doesn’t like being told what to do but she is concerned about family loyalty. What should she do?

I was pleased that Jet listened to her heart. She was careful when spending time with Shane even though she really liked him. Shane adored Jet and didn’t want to cause problems for her with her family but he needed answers and he refused to leave. Things become a little tense and angsty and there is a small element of suspense going on as well. I don’t want to spoil anything so I won’t say anything else about that. However I will say that I was impatient and anxious to see how this story ended. I tried to guess but I wasn’t sure. Because of that, this was a page-turner for me. That being said, this was a beautiful story of trust and love and a HEA for everyone involved! I look forward to the spinoff featuring the Douglas family.
