Synopsis:  A Cowboy Under the Mistletoe

‘Tis the season for starting over for one military man turned cowboy in this new novel by the New York Times bestselling author of The Cowboy and His Baby.

Former Navy master-at-arms Jason Clements is down on his luck and calling in one last favor. His cousin has secured him a job opportunity as a cowboy working at Price Ranch in Wyoming. Too bad Jason has never even saddled a horse. If he can keep this job without his PTSD getting in the way, it’ll be a Christmas miracle.

Local busybody Sage Cooper loves Painted Barrel something fierce, but it’s time for her to move on. Since her father passed away, the family ranch feels too big for just her, and there’s no chance of finding a husband in this small town. To the rest of the world, she’s just another local fixture, known for her closet full of ugly Christmas sweaters and being perpetually single.

It isn’t until Jason shows up in desperate need of a cowboy crash course that Sage discovers a tall, dark, and handsome reason to stick around. And with the holidays coming up, Sage is in need of a date for a special event—maybe they’ll turn out to be each other’s best Christmas present.

A Cowboy Under the MistletoeA Cowboy Under the Mistletoe by Jessica Clare

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Oh, I loved this book so much!
Why haven’t I read this author before now?
If I could give this book more than five stars, I certainly would. This author wrote in a way that tugged every one of my heartstrings. At some point we all say, “every now and then a certain book will come along and once you finish, you are left will long sigh, a huge smile and a feeling like you’ve been awarded something special,” Well that was A Cowboy Under The Mistletoe for me. A truly endearing, heartwarming, poignant story. I am absolutely going to put time aside and read more from Jessica Clare.

Sage and Jason…..
This is a story that you’ll need to experience each emotion your own, so I’m not going to tell you anything that will take away from that. Sorry, no spoilers.

Sage grew up in a small Wyoming town called Painted Barrel. While she is friends with everyone in town, Sage still feels very much alone. Sage made a decision that once the Spring rolled around, she would sell her ranch and move on to a larger town where she can start over and hopefully find love. With her longtime crush (never noticing her for more than his friend) getting married, Sage realizes she needs a change. It’s time.

Jason Clements has a story. An endearingly, heartbreaking story. He desperately wants to fit in, wants to finally call someplace home rather than jumping around from job to job. Employment is something Jason is struggling with due to his PTSD. While Sage had me sad for her loneliness, Jason’s story had my heart bleeding. That said, I really appreciated how the author wrote his struggles so I could experience them with him. I was sad when he was sad. When Jason was afraid, I was scared with him. And when he found love, I was teary-eyed, not to mention, relieved.

This book was so perfect for a Christmas romance.

I don’t want to say anything more other than this is a must read and I recommend you check it out when it releases mid-October. This book will leave you truly feeling warm and exudes that special feeling that is in the air around the holiday season. A Cowboy Under The Mistletoe has all the feels, and then some.

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

Synopsis:

I was his new beginning. He was my last chance.

I need a husband. Today. Now, if possible. I thought any man would do, but when my first choice is run out of town the day before we’re to be married, I’m forced to consider it when cowboy Gage Pennell proposes. I don’t know him. I’ve never met him before today. Up until a few hours ago, he was working for my nearest and dearest enemy, the same man who wants to steal everything from me.

I’d rather die than let that happen. If my neighbor gets his way, I actually might. But Gage is more than just good looks and heart-stopping swagger… and I’m desperate.

But, am I this desperate?

I guess we’ll find out, because when my neighbor puts his most ruthless plan yet into action, I’m forced to fight back the only way I can. And in the Wild, Wild West, sometimes it’s the bride who takes the cowboy.

I loved this book! And guess what? Another new author to love. If you’ve been reading my latest reviews, then you know I’ve been enjoying all new-to-me authors.

If I had one complaint with this book, it is that is ended too soon. I actually haven’t read a historical-western romance in ages. After I read the blurb for this one, I knew I wanted to read it. Do you know what really amazed me? For such a short story, the author packed it with everything you’d find in a full length novel. Her characters were truly developed well. I personally felt like I knew them, and connected to them. Not only the H/h but all the secondary characters as well. There was enough angst and drama to entertain me. In addition, the characters has wit and sass and I was smiling throughout like a goon. And of course there is an amazing HEA! I’ll say it agin, I really enjoyed this book. And I am excited to read more from this author.

The synopsis does a pretty good job of giving you insight to where this story is going so I will not add anything more because I would hate to spoil this fun book. I will add though that because Gage has two older brothers, I’ll be stalking this author to make sure I don’t miss any mentions of them having their own books. 😉

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

📝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. 🙂

 Waiting for You (The Holbrook Series #1)Waiting for You by Jasmine Stevens

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Stars

What a fabulous book given this is a debut novel. Before I get into my review, I want to mention that this author took nearly six years to get this book to us. I read the author’s note at the end of the book. Truthfully, after reading that, I could appreciate this book even more. While you are reading, you will feel this is a seasoned author. Jasmine Stevens poured her heart and soul in this novel, that fact being very obvious. Great word building, extremely complex and flawed characters and a happily-ever-after that was worked hard for. Lottie and Will’s story is poignant, complex, heartbreaking, tragic, and thankfully, the author threw in some humorous moments to give the reader some balance of emotions. Definitely has all the “feels.”

A childhood tragedy tore two best friends apart. Lottie and Will would be separated for eighteen long years. And truthfully, if it wasn’t for the fact that Lottie had to take care of the disrepair of her childhood home, she would have never come back to her home town of Holbrook. Her reasons were justified, although I will say that Lottie frustrated the heck out of me. To be honest, it took quite some time before I liked her. Will, I adored from the beginning. Lottie treated him poorly for most of the book, all in the hopes of protecting her heart. Will was persistent, though. He wanted to be with Lottie. As a child he loved her the only way best friends could. But seeing her as an adult changed his perspective. I want to tell you, there is a sad story here for these two. That said, at this moment, I can’t think of two characters that are so well deserved of a happy ending. I was rooting for them from the beginning. Though there were times I worried it wasn’t going to happen.

This book is angsty. And while there is great chemistry between Lottie and Will and a huge amount of tension, their intimacy was sweet. I wouldn’t call this a clean romance, but it was a tame one. Also, while the writing flowed nicely, I found some of the story to drag in places. Of course, I was getting impatient for my happily-ever-after, so it could have just been me. Regardless, I loved this book, I recommend this book to anyone who loves romance and I will definitely be looking for the next installment in Jasmine Steven’s Holbrook Series.

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

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Stars!

This was definitely a book I had a hard time putting down! Too much going on and I was so engrossed in needing my happy ending. Brantley’s Way is not your typical cowboy romance. That just means the main focus in this book was not ranch life. While Brantley himself is a possessive and protective alpha, Adilynn is strong and protective as well. Unfortunately, while Ady takes care of others, there is no one taking care of her. Ady needs caring just as much as the younger brother she adores and protects as well as the horses she cares for. For all her weaknesses, I found Ady to be a remarkably strong, young woman. I admired her spirit and loyal, loving, caring personality. I hated the horrific situations she was forced to endure and I hated her mother a hundred times more. My only disappointment in this book was that I didn’t get to see karma bite Ady’s nasty mother in the a**!

There is a good deal of characters introduced in this book and I can only hope the author will write about them. Another reason I loved this book was because of my love for horses and all things cowboys. Yeah, I admit it, this is my favorite romance trope. One more plus for me is that I found a new author to stalk. While I have seen KL Donn’s name all around the book-loving community, Brantley’s Way was my first read by her. She has over twenty available books to chose from. Actually, I already know what I’ll be reading by KL Donn next. You’ll just have to wait for my next review to find out. 😉

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

Synopsis:

From USA Today bestselling author Caitlin Crews comes A True Cowboy Christmas, the first in a sensational series debut about a cowboy, a farm girl, and the greatest gift of all. . .

Gray Everett has a heart of gold but that doesn’t mean he believes in the magic of Christmas. He’s got plenty else to worry about this holiday season, what with keeping his cattle ranch in the family and out of the hands of hungry real-estate investors looking to make a down-and-dirty deal. That, plus being a parent to his young and motherless daughter, equals a man who will not rest until he achieves his mission. Now, all Gray needs is the help of his lifelong neighbor. . .who happens to have grown into a lovely, spirited woman.

For Abby Douglas, the chance to join forces with Gray is nothing less than a Christmas miracle. Much as the down-to-earth farmer’s daughter has tried to deny it, Abby’s been in love with stern, smoking-hot Gray her whole life. So when Gray proposes a marriage of convenience as a way to combine land—and work together toward a common cause—Abby can’t refuse. But how can she convince Gray that sometimes life offers a man a second chance for a reason. . .and that their growing trust and mutual passion may be leading to true and lasting love?

My Review:

A True Cowboy Christmas (Cold River Ranch)A True Cowboy Christmas by Caitlin Crews

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Stars…..
Loved this book so much! A very well written novel with great characters.

I knew from the first chapter this book would be a breath of fresh air. And I was not disappointed in my assumption. First I’ll say that this was my first book by Caitlin Crews. I really loved everything about her writing style. Her descriptive monologues and scenes brought me right there to those Colorado mountains. I will add that this book is heavy on monologue. I would have like to read more dialogue from our hero and heroine. That said, I still loved this book and I am looking forward to reading more from this author. This series has two more brothers to match off. And I can only hope they are matched with Abby’s two friends. Unfortunately I was not given any hints as to what is to come and whose story is next so I’ll patiently wait and see. But I can assure you this author is on my watch list.

Gray and Abby…..
I won’t summarize this book. The blurb gives you great insight as to how this will play out. Marriage of convenience is not a trope I often come across unless it’s a historical romance. That’s not to say I don’t enjoy reading them. I do. Quite a bit, actually. Gray is a bit older than Abby, who is thirty herself. He has a teenage daughter, two alienated brothers and a whole ranch to run. After his father passes away, Gray feels the need for a change in his life. He doesn’t want to be lonely. He wants companionship and to find a woman he can work along side without drama. Unfortunately for Abby, Gray does not want “feelings” involved. There is quite a bit of angst. A lot of chemistry. Abby is a wonderful character. Unfortunately while I liked Gray, I didn’t love him until the end. But that is okay because otherwise this book would not have been as perfect. Gray had a lot of issues and he needed to come to terms with many aspects of his life. He especially needed to learn that loving Abby and allowing her to love him was currently the best thing that could happen to him. I don’t want to spoil anything for you. That said, I will say that this is a book I would like to reread each Christmas. I loved it that much!

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

Blurb:

What if you were in love not just with one, not just with two, but with three hot guys?
And what if they wanted you back?

There are three of them. Three boys.
We’re friends. Neighbors. Our lives are linked through disaster, fear and pain.
I love them all. Not sure I can live without them. Can we just stay friends?
Can we ignore the desire flaring when we’re around each other?
Can I kiss one and not the other?
I can’t choose.
Don’t want to choose.

Synopsis:

What if you were in love not just with one, not just with two, but with three hot guys?
And what if they wanted you back?

There are three of them. Three boys.
We’re friends. Neighbors. Our lives are linked through disaster, fear and pain.
I love them all. Not sure I can live without them. Can we just stay friends?
Can we ignore the desire flaring when we’re around each other?
Can I kiss one and not the other?
I can’t choose.
Don’t want to choose.
And I’m not sure they can, either.
This story will either end up in heartache, or as any story should: in a happy ending.

Love is not a road. It’s a country. A sprawling galaxy.
Love has no compass. No rules. No limits.
Love is a universe. Lose yourself in it.

*** This is a Reverse Harem romance – that is, one girl and three boys all ending up together happy after many adventures. It can be read as a complete standalone. Full novel length. ***

My Review:

Broken CompassBroken Compass by Jo Raven

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Stars

This is honestly the best book I have read this year thus far! First, I will say I have been a die hard fan of Jo’s from her first release and I look forward to every new book she writes. Second, I will say that I have never read an author that even comes close to totally annihilating my heart the way she does. The best part is she puts my broken pieces back together. Jo has never, ever disappointed me and I know she never will. Her writing talent is just absolutely amazing. Jo will cross boundaries; she is not afraid to torture her characters. I have never read characters like hers. If you are currently a fan of this author, than you know exactly what I’m trying to say. If you aren’t, hold on for the literary ride of your life.

To all my friends…I would never steer you wrong. This book is amazing! This author is amazing!

While all Joe’s books are stand-alones, they all interconnect some how. There is always a familiar name or place mentioned.

Broken Compass is a new adult reverse harem. And while there are plenty of well-written sexy moments, this book is about so much more. The epitome of unconditional love and support. The development of their unconventional relationship is not rushed. That said, the tension and chemistry between these amazing characters is present on every page.

This book is separated into a few parts starting when the characters are sixteen years old and follows their circumstances for a few years. There are occasional time jumps here and there but nothing that left me lost or changed the steady pace of the book. As there are four main characters, there are four plot lines. While they are all tied together for a more than well deserved happily ever after, each character has their own suffering as well as their suffering and concern for the others.

Sydney, Kash, Nate, and West…..

Sydney is the glue that holds this bunch together. She was so young but at the same time, an old soul. They were only sixteen but years of abuse left them seeming much older. I’m sorry I can’t tell you more about what each character went through individually because I don’t give spoilers. However, if you have questions, you can message me because I can tell you there are many triggers. This book has many tragic moments. I promise there is a happy ending, so keep that in mind as you read. Even if you wonder how there can be a happy ending, I promise you Jo Raven does not leave you hanging.

West, Nate, and Sydney live in the same apartment complex and are friends. Kash moves in and their dynamic starts to slowly change. From the first page, I couldn’t get to the end of this book fast enough. With four main characters having their own issues you might worry about the author keeping your attention. Fear not! I couldn’t put this book down once I started it.

While this is my absolute honest review, I can’t claim it to be completely unbiased. Jo Raven is my favorite author and it is because her writing is absolutely amazing and every one of her books left me with the worst book hangovers ever.

Thank you for taking the time to read my review! 🙂

SYNOPSIS:

Crystal Cove gives people a chance to redeem themselves

Beckett Potter came to Crystal Cove for redemption. To give himself over to the church and the town that his family took so much from. Potters know nothing but taking, but he’s not like his family. But when he meets Eve at church, all he can think of is taking. Taking her, owning her, making her his. Beckett lost his innocence a long time ago.

Eve is a lot more innocent than she looks. Just twenty-one, she looks like a tempting pin-up with her curves and rock-a-billy style but knows little about temptation. Religion kept her sheltered even though it also brought her peace. That is, at least, until the new deacon makes her suddenly want some sinful things!

MY REVIEW:

 Good Fridays (A Crystal Cove Holiday #7)Good Fridays by Dee Ellis

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4 Stars to Good Fridays: Crystal Cove Holiday #7 by Dee Ellis.

We return to Crystal Cove once again in this 7th book about a romantic, sweet and charming town including its imperfect residents. Truly, I’d love to live in such a place. I’d like to believe that there is a Crystal Cove somewhere in this world.

This is Beckett and Eve’s story of how redemption is given in the form of true love. Beckett had lived a selfish life. He is tired of taking and is determined to give back. He especially wants to give back to the quaint and charming town that his family has stolen from in years past. Beckett decides the way to redeem his past greed is to not only become an active member of Crystal Cove’s church, but to act as a Deacon there.

Eve is niave and sweet. Her parents have kept her close to home and away from any temptations. I thought Eve was adorable. She may have been sweet and innocent but she was willing to take a chance on her attraction to Beckett. She wanted him even though she was afraid to defy her parents.

Good Fridays is a very short and sexy story about an imperfect man who finds love and redemption in the arms of a sweet smalltown girl. Only their road to happily-ever-after has a few bumps they will need to hurdle over first. I loved the last chapter and epilogue; it was heartwarming and satisfying in what I look for in a HEA.

This book can definitely be read in one sitting. It is short sweet and very sexy. I recommend that if you haven’t boarded the Crystal Cove train, you get your ticket ASAP! 😉

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