📝My Review📝:

This book was sweet and emotional. My heart was heavy for what was happening. Even knowing there would be a happily-ever-after, I still was worried. Faithful is book ten in The Mountain Man’s Babies series. And sadly, it is also the last. While I haven’t had the pleasure of reading them all, I have read several and enjoyed them.

I won’t go into much detail because I wouldn’t want to spoil anything for you. Jonah returns to Miracle Mountain from being in Alaska for the last year and a half. He feels it’s time to settle down. He wants what all his fellow mountain friends have. Love of a significant other, and family. Jonah is not expecting to find that so quickly but he does. And when that happens, he holds on tight and never lets go. Here is where I can’t tell you more. Not only is it emotional and quite sad, but what happens, no matter how awful, it only adds to the sweetest ending.

I have to say, as is usual for me with Frankie Love novels, I adored these characters. That said, because nothing in life is perfect, there were times I was frustrated and not a little angry at some aspects. Of course that is par for the course so I expected it. As I said earlier, my grief was non-existent by the end. I truly wish that men like Jonah existed. I think this world would be a better place. 😉

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

Synopsis:

Going deep: In football it means running down the field for a long pass. You’re serious. Committed. Unstoppable. As a wide receiver, it’s a term I’m all too familiar with. It’s who I am, at least when it comes to my career.

For the past decade, football has been the only thing I’ve allowed myself to commit to. That is until a beautiful, blue-eyed temptress steps into my limo to escort me to a charity function.

She’s strong, independent, and quick witted. Everything I want in a woman. There’s just one problem. She’s not mine for the taking. But that’s not going to stop me from winning her heart.

I’m in deep with this woman. I’m running down the field with my arms and heart open, ready for the catch. Now all I need is for her to throw the ball.

Going Deep (Imperfect Love #2)Going Deep by Nikki Ash

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Stars!
Nikki Ash is amazing! She has quickly found a permanent place on my top ten favorite author’s list. I have never came away from one her her books disappointed. If anything, after reading her books, I want more.

So……while I absolutely loved this book, the H/h were not easy to like in the beginning chapters. Both of them treated the other horribly. Mean things were often said and many assumptions were made. Killian and Giselle are the epitome of the love/hate relationship only they didn’t know it. There is a slow development of their relationship as it grows from animosity, to tolerance, to friends to more. Of course the more is my favorite.

Killian is a pro football player and Giselle is interning at a prestigious interior design firm. While Killian is in a good place, he is not looking for a relationship. He has a story that will break your heart and give you that justification of why he acts the way her does. Killian is loyal and generous. He is sexy and and every woman’s dream man. I actually liked him better than Nick from the previous book, The Pick Up. And that says a lot because Nick is an amazing character.

Killian will become the hero that Giselle claims she doesn’t need or want. Once she lets Killian inside her heart, Giselle can finally find peace with her life and find love. Without going into details, Giselle has been going through a very difficult time in her life. She has had to make some decisions that I personally did not like. Thought I understood, and did not judge her because of it. Thankfully Killian didn’t either.

This book was really amazing and I don’t want to say too much more about it. You should enjoy it on you own. I will say that if you haven’t read this author yet, You are truly missing out on some very talented writing.

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thant you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

Love couple in bed

Synopsis:

“You may be faking the relationship, but you’re not faking the orgasms.”

Downsized, broke, and dumped, 38-year-old Marley sneaks home to her childhood bedroom in the town she couldn’t wait to escape twenty years ago. Not much has changed in Culpepper. The cool kids are still cool. Now they just own car dealerships and live in McMansions next door. Oh, and the whole town is still talking about that Homecoming she ruined her senior year. Desperate for a new start, Marley accepts a temporary teaching position. Can the girl banned from all future Culpepper High Homecomings keep the losing-est girls soccer team in school history from killing each other and prevent carpal tunnel in a bunch of phone-clutching gym class students? Maybe with the help of Jake Weston, high school bad boy turned sexy good guy. When the school rumor mill sends Marley to the principal’s office to sign an ethics contract, the tattooed track coach, dog dad, and teacher of the year becomes her new fake boyfriend and alibi—for a price. The Deal: He’ll teach her how to coach if she teaches him how to be in a relationship. Who knew a fake boyfriend could deliver such real orgasms? But it’s all temporary. The guy. The job. The team. There’s too much history. Rock bottom can’t turn into a foundation for happily ever after. Can it? Warning: Story also includes a meet-puke, a bouffanted nemesis, a yard swan and donkey basketball, a teenage-orchestrated makeover, and a fake relationship that gets a little too real between the sheets.

📝My Review📝:

Rock Bottom GirlRock Bottom Girl by Lucy Score

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Have you ever read a book that you could relate to so well that it gave you anxiety? Rock Bottom Girl did that for me. I believe there are four types of high school experiences. One being you loved high school and everything about it. The second being you absolutely hated it. The third being you pretended you loved it when you actually hated it. And finally, the fourth being you have both good and bad experiences. That’s me. I fall into the fourth category with a touch of the third. High school was not great for me in freshman year. I wasn’t bullied but I had a hard time trying to find my place. I ended up making friends that were not great in the way of role models. But thankfully, by my sophomore year, I knew who I was and who my true friends were. Unfortunately, there were not many of those. That said, I watched so many kids being bullied. Marley was familiar. There were so many Marleys in my high school. Unfortunately, there were more Amie Jo’s than I could count. I was more than thankful to not be on their radars.

As I read through this book, the angst just kept building. I really didn’t know how Marley’s life would turn out. And while she was very stubborn in her way of thinking, I understood her. There were many predictable moments that made me cringe and laugh at the same time.

Marley was that bullied girl in HS. I seriously don’t understand how she remained a decent person after all she had been through. I loved her character. She may have thought herself weak but Marley was anything but. When she moves back to her hometown after losing yet another job, broke and broken up with her boyfriend, Marley is at that place we call
“rock bottom.” Sometimes we need to hit that place in our lives to find a new perspective. Marley will take a temporary job as a gym teacher and soccer coach. Warily accepting this job, Marley will soon find out that this was the new direction her life needed. Nothing will come easy though. Marley admits to being afraid to return to HS even if she is an adult now. And sadly, she will have to deal with the school bully once again as this antagonist is a fellow teacher.

Of course, the bad boy of her youth still gets her blood pumping. There is also a story there but I won’t go into details. Marley’s journey, while angsty, is pure hysterics. Gosh, I laughed so much and so often through this book. My daughter thought I was crazy because of my loud bouts of laughter.

While this book brought back some less than pleasant HS moments, the author did a magnificent job in giving me new memories. Even if they aren’t mine, I got to experience them. I can’t say enough good things about this book and I’m so afraid that I haven’t done it justice in my review. This was actually the first book I ever read by Lucy Score. I am a huge fan now. If she writes all her books with this many feels, I am going to be a very happy reader!

I highly recommend this book to everyone. There is love, romance, a fake relationship, a hero donkey, and more laughter than my stomach muscles could take.

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

Blurb
A dare turns into so much more…
All I want to do is
get to work on time.
But a Prince Harry look-a-like is trying to steal my cab,
And I’ll fight for it to the bitter end.
In the midst of our
verbal battle,
I discover I lost my wallet.
So I bargain—a free ride for a kiss.
What starts out as
innocent quickly steams up the windows.
His lips are soft, and when he tugs me closer,
I press my entire body against his hard muscles, and practically strip him from
his expensive suit.
This is the best taxi ride of my life.
Until it ends just as quickly as it began.
Embarrassed over my behavior, I rush out without so much as a goodbye.
But fate, that
bitch,
Has us pounding on the same locked door.
Already knowing I’m going to be fired,
I curse my new boss and his new rules.
The hot suit laughs, and dares me to tell my new boss what a
dick he’s being.
With nothing to lose, I accept.
Never in a million
years could I have imagined he is my new boss.
Arrogant.
Sexy.
And totally off-limits.
Dating him is against the rules.
His rules.
He doesn’t seem to care.
Until I dare him not to fall in love with me.
Even then he says
that’s easy.
That the only four-letter word he lives by is duty.
But this would-be-king is about to fall hard…for a commoner.

Synopsis:

Summer Attwood has been hiding in baggy clothes and ugly glasses for nearly ten years. When the town hottie asks her to be his faux girl-friend for a couple of weeks she decides it’s time to put away the disguise and shine.

Cade Kipling can’t believe the beautiful woman that emerges from the cocoon of overalls and over sized glasses. If he wasn’t dead set on taking a few months to get his head on straight, after his long time abusive girl-friend dumped him, he’d be after Summer in a heartbeat.

Two weeks of dating will either kill them or change their lives forever.

📝My Review📝:

Roping Cade: Burlap and Barbed WireRoping Cade: Burlap and Barbed Wire by Shirley Penick

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Roping Cade has a different feel than the previous books in this series. The author touched on a couple of types of abuse. I won’t go into details on that because you’ll want to read it on your own.

As with the prior books, this one flowed nicely and I did find myself eating up the pages to get to the HEA. That said, I was a bit disappointed in the main characters for different reasons. Cade had been in a previous relationship where he was on and off with the woman for nearly twelve years. I tried very hard to understand his feelings regarding why he stayed so long with his ex and just couldn’t justify why. His ex walked all over him and he never stood up for himself. He believed he had a good reason for his putting up with his ex but I couldn’t see it. Sadly to say, Cade was not portrayed as a strong male lead. That said, I still adored him and rooted for him to have a happy-ever-after. He was a very likable character.

Summer had her own issues. She had secrets and I understood why she kept them. Summer had been hiding her true self for ten years. And when Cade asked her to pretend to be his girlfriend for a while, Summer practically leaps out of her shell. Cade gave her the confidence she needed to be free of her past. And Summer helped Cade to heal from his.

There are definitely bumps in the road for these two. But once both Cade and Summer can believe in themselves, they are able to move forward with each other and with new goals. I enjoyed reading this book and I am curious as to which of the remaining two siblings will get a book next. I just hope the author doesn’t keep us waiting too long.

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

Title: Bound to His Bride

Author: Madison Faye

Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Release Date: February 25, 2019

 

Blurb
Vows sealed us together. The mob tore us apart.
But now this beast without his beauty is coming back to
take what’s his.
She’s mine. To love. To honor. To comfort.
And this time, to keep.
Forever.
To a rough, filthy,
savage mob fixer like me, she was an angel. My angel. The
beauty to tame the beast I kept inside. I was lost the second I saw her. Abby
was my everything. My second chance, the bride I never should have had.
…And then one day, I
didn’t.
The mob takes its
dues in blood, and I was their collector. And somehow, I let her get away from
me. Too many shadows. Too much blood on my hands. Too many nights away from the
only bed I wanted, warmed by the only woman I ever craved.
But tonight, I’m through.
Tonight, I’m taking back my wife.
I’ve been keeping
watch over her, and my desire has turned to obsession. It’s turned into a raw,
fierce need—to have her, to claim her once again. To take her
back and take her in our marriage bed. I’m through being the
mob’s mad dog, and this beast is about to tear their world apart to get back
his bride.
Months ago, I let
the only goodness I’ve ever known walk out of my life. But tonight, I’m taking
her back.
Tonight, I’m claiming
her all over again. Tonight, I’m going to remind her of the vows we spoke.
And I’ll storm
heaven and hell to take back my angel.

Synopsis:

Friends forever. Chase Kipling and his twin brother Cade have been best friends with Katie since grade school. They hang out together all the time, riding horses, playing cards, going to movies and sporting events. A fun friendship for all three of them. Until a new guy in town mentions what a sexy woman she is. Chase sees red at the comment, how dare some guy lust after his best friend. Sure, she’s beautiful and sexy and has a great laugh… and now his eyes are opened and there’s no turning back.

Katie Jackson has known Chase since first grade, she’s had a crush on him since middle school, and loved him since, well, probably forever. But he’s got her firmly in the friend zone and she has no idea how to change that. Or if she even wants to risk changing it. After all friends is better than nothing. Isn’t it?

📝My Review📝:

Tempting ChaseTempting Chase by Shirley Penick

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Tempting Chase is book three in this series. As with the two previous books in the series, the author does a good job pulling you into the story. This book was a bit different that the previous two because the majority of the book takes place in town since that is where Katie lives and works. This book ha a bit of suspense but nothing to eventful or angst. In fact, I enjoyed the light suspense aspect in this book very much.

Chase and his twin brother Cade have been friends with Katie since childhood. Their friendship has always been platonic and both brothers are protective of her. But there has never been any romantic feelings. That is until a comment made by another man, shines a new light on Katie where Chase is concerned. After twenty years of friendship, Chase is seeing Katie in a whole new light. Predictably, he doesn’t know what to do with his new feelings. Katie has no problem showing him what to do. She has loved him for so long. When she finally makes the decision to “go fo it,” Chase is not prepared. I loved watching these two together. I believed their attraction. The chemistry between Chase and Katie was scorching and when they finally acted on their attraction, it was perfect.

From that point on, the story moves very quickly. Chase will make some mistakes in which a lot of groveling is involved. I actually loved that part. The grand gestures from flawed heroes are some of my favorite aspects of romance novels and this one did not disappoint.

Without saying anything more, I will tell you that I truly liked this book. Chase has been one of many favorite characters from when we meet him in the first book. His twin brother Cade’s book is going to be my next read and I can’t wait to see how that one turns out.

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

That leaves four to flirt with, four hot men, so why does she only have eyes for the oldest grumpiest one in the bunch. Rachel Reardon has to question her own sanity when she’s enthralled with a man she can hardly stand to speak to. A first-class jerk and sexy as sin.

Adam Kipling can’t believe his bad luck when his soon-to-be sister-in-law’s best friend arrives. She is smoking hot and too damn young for him. He has responsibilities as the oldest sibling and they do not include flirting with young women.

There isn’t enough land on this Colorado ranch to keep them far enough apart. An explosion of some sort is inevitable.

📝My Review📝:

 Taming AdamTaming Adam by Shirley Penick

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Cute story.
This is the second book in this series. Just like book one, this was a steady paced book. The author does a great job with word building, scene setting, etc. I had a great picture in my mind of the ranch, mountains; all of it.

I enjoyed this book almost as much as the first, however the ending was not what I was anticipating; it was abrupt and lacked the grand gesture I assumed would be coming. I really expected more and when that ending came, I was disappointed. Other than those last few pages, I enjoyed the book and can’t wait to read the next brother’s story. The characters in these books are endearing and you just can’t help wanting to make sure they have their happy endings.

Rachel is visiting the ranch to help her best friend Alyssa plan her up coming wedding to Beau. In addition, Rachel will be photographing just about everything. Since she will be staying at the ranch for three months, she has plenty of time to take all the photos she wants. And there is also plenty of time to fall for the oldest Kipling brother, Adam. Adam was portrayed as a stick-in-the-mud, by -the-book type of guy. Despite being gorgeous, well-built and his smile could bring any woman to her knees, Adam’s attitude was not attractive. There were several moments where Rachel had to put him in his place. I enjoyed those moments very much.

I don’t want to go into any details because once Adam decides he can’t fight his attraction to Rachel any longer, things progress quickly, get a bit angsty, and then resolve quickly.

Do I recommend this book? I do. I especially recommend it to those that love cowboy romances. Taming Adam was a sweet story with very little in the way of angst or suspense. There were a few issues of suspense but they were resolved without drama. All in all, a cute story.

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂
