BOOK REVIEW!!! ~ Crazy Little Thing Called Love – Jess Bryant

Get your copy HERE!!!

ABOUT:

Everyone in Fate, Texas knows that Bluebell Carter has always been a little bit crazy. There was that time she colored her hair pink and the time she keyed her boyfriend’s car not to mention how she up and left town and her daddy in the dust ten years ago. Rolling back home in an ugly orange bridesmaid dress was not the reappearance she’d ever planned to make and staying in town was the last thing she ever thought possible. Then again, being in Texas does crazy things to her brain (maybe it’s the heat?) because before she can say “bless your heart” she finds herself tangled up with a handsome, hard-muscled cowboy.

Zach West earned his hard body the old fashioned way – lots of hard work on hard Texas land. He’s spent his life playing the role of responsible West brother, the oldest, the protector and guardian. His father’s death left him to care for two younger brothers, a grieving mother and a ranch. He’s had enough of caring for other people to last a lifetime and zero plans to add a woman to that list but Bluebell has a way of driving him nuts that’s impossible to resist. He dreams about her long blonde hair and even longer legs. She’s pretty enough to drive a man to drink, to sin… but to love? Now that’s just crazy.

Okay let me just start by saying that I LOVED Crazy Little Thing Called Love. A lot. I read a ton of books and I like a lot of them but this was fun and sweet, hot and heartbreaking. It’s what a romance novel should be.

Blue was incredible. Doing her own thing even while she battled feelings of abandonment and being unloveable. She was strong and brave, not letting her issues get in her way. Mostly. And Zach, sweet baby J he was all MAN. I loved him from the first scene and that never let up, which is rare because I’m usually Team Heroine.

The chemistry between Blue and Zach was off the chart and not just the sexual chemistry. When they were together, bantering and bickering, I smiled as I read those scenes and now I’m jogging my memory to see if I’ve read anything else by Jess Bryant because I really enjoyed reading Crazy Little Thing Called Love.

Is there a Riley & Maddie story in the making or…??

#FREE BOOK REVIEW!!! ~ Once Upon a Texas Christmas – Katherine Garbera

Get your copy HERE!!!

ABOUT:

Avery Burton loves her job as assistant to Logan Calloway. A big time Hollywood A-lister, Logan spends all his time on the West Coast leaving her to run his charity in Whiskey River. Staying busy and giving back to the community that is the only real family she’s ever known suits Avery just fine…until Logan announces he’s coming home for Christmas.

Ever since his mother abandoned him as a young boy, Whiskey River hasn’t felt like home to Logan Calloway. Still, he heads home for the holidays, intending to reflect on his career and personal life. When he sees his assistant Avery in his home, Logan begins to realize that Whiskey River has more to offer than just bad memories.

As Logan and Avery spend more time together working for the charity, it becomes impossible to deny their chemistry and attraction.

 

 

This book was a kindle free read at the time of posting.

Once Upon a Texas Christmas was a fun, short Christmas story featuring two people with BIG issues, courtesy of their parents. Logan was the son of the town drunk who became a cautionary tale, leaving him feeling lower than dirt. Avery was the daughter of brilliant scientists who treated parenting like a fifty-fifty task to be handled. So like I said, issues.

But Avery works for Logan’s charitable donation and when they finally spend time together things get flirty, fast. Despite reservations on both their parts, Logan and Avery learn that sometimes chemistry is hard to ignore. They were hot together—really, really hot—but it wasn’t just that. They gravitated towards each other and it was a delight to read their story.

Once Upon a Texas Christmas didn’t have a lot of excess drama which I appreciated because both Logan and Avery were in their own way without anyone else’s help.

EXCERPT:

“I’m spendin’ the summer in New Orleans.” Dixie sat at one of her delicate wooden chairs with the yellow, pink and green striped cushions and smiled at her one of her best friends and cousin Pepper.

“What? You can’t go away for the summer, Mama’s countin’ on you,” Pepper pouted. She was a beautiful woman, with dark brown skin and eyes so light brown they were almost golden. Her mama had married one of Dixie’s uncles and ran the only art gallery in Rock Hill.

Dixie waved a dismissive hand at Pepper. “I’ve already talked to Aunt Sarah about it and she urged me to go. Her only condition was that I send her one painting each week to make sure I’m still focused.” She smiled and lifted her bare shoulders in a shrug. “So, who wants to go with me?”

Marilyn chose that moment to breeze through the front door, arms full with two cloth sacks and her giant designer handbag. “Alright, I’ve got bourbon and mint, water, ice and tequila.” She kicked the door shut with one killer red stiletto and rushed to set the bags down. “I also brought butter pecan ice cream, shortbread cookies and a rib dinner from Dante’s.”

“Jeez girl, did you leave anything for the rest of Rock Hill?” Pepper teased her and plucked the tequila bottle from the bag. “But I approve and that’s why you’re my favorite cousin.”

Marilyn ignored Pepper’s phony smile and dropped into the seat in front of her. “You’re full of it, Pepper but I’ll take it. I could use it.”

Dixie sat on her cousin’s lap and wrapped her arms around Marilyn’s shoulders. “What’s wrong sugar?”

“I’m just tired and frustrated.” It was more than that but she didn’t want to get into it.

Dixie’s blue eyes widened and she stood, walking around the table until she faced her best friends. “I’ve got it! You should come with me to New Orleans, both of you! We can have a fun summer away from our stuffy, controlling parents, no offense Pepper, and enjoy being ourselves!” Before either woman could answer, Dixie turned and took advantage of the open floor plan, grabbing her cocktail shaker, muddler and ice. She didn’t notice the wide eyed stares until she began to muddle the mint and sugar. “What?”

“Are you out of your mind, Dixie Mae Covington?” Marilyn removed her blond locks from the loose bun at the base of her neck. “I can’t just pick up and leave for three months.”

Her auburn brows crinkled in confusion. “Why not? You can write anywhere there’s a power outlet and Wi-Fi.”

“Well I’m in,” Pepper said, grabbing the cocktail shaker and adding a few glugs of tequila. “Texas style,” she grinned and filled three tall glasses.

“Not that I’m not happy you’re comin’ sugar, but why?”

She shrugged and took a long, satisfying sip. “Duvall is a lying, cheating, no good son of a bitch?” Her harsh words were contradicted by her casual tone.

Dixie wrapped an arm around Pepper, “I always thought you were too good for him, doll. Good riddance.”

Marilyn glared, green eyes glittering outrage. “And what about your plans to find a job?”

“I’ve decided I’m going to do it. I’m going to design my own video game.”

Both women squealed and swallowed her up in a heap of enthusiastic hugs and kisses. “That’s so fantastic, Pepper! I’m so happy for you.”

Two pleading gazes turn on Marilyn. “Dang, don’t put it all on me.” They said nothing, just looked at her with stares that grew more pitiful by the second. “Oh fine, looks like we’re all going to the Big Easy this summer.”

“Come on ladies, move your booties!” Dixie was up at the crack of dawn to pack up her giant SUV and had to wait for Marilyn and Pepper to get their acts together. She felt at ease now that she had a few suitcases worth of clothes, her paints, canvases and easel packed. She was determined that this summer would be transformative for her. She would sleep late if she felt like it, paint all day and maybe even try to sell a few while she was at it. Maybe after a few weeks she would look for a job.

Dixie punched her horn several times to motivate her cousins. When Pepper finally emerged from her family home, she signed. “Finally! Did you pack up your worldly possessions or what?” She watched her cousins lug several suitcases, computers and all manner of must-haves to the car.

Pepper frowned and blew a stray curl out of her face. “It’s a good thing Uncle Clive bought you this gas guzzler or one of us would have to ride on the roof.” She struggled to shove her high powered gaming computer in place.

“Oh for heaven’s sake, girl! Move aside.” Dixie climbed into the back and let the seat down. “There we go, now hand it all in.” Fifteen minutes later Pepper was all packed and slumped in the passenger seat, not bothering with the sweat on her brow. Dixie laughed at her cousin. “How are you tired when I did all the hard work?”

“You’ve got strong arms from hours of painting. I only have strong hands,” she held up her slender brown hands with pink nails. “Thank you for helping Dixie.”

“No problem, sugar. Now tell me about this game of yours.”

Pepper sighed. “I’m not ready to talk about it yet. Ask me again in a month.” She pasted on a smile that Dixie saw right through.

“I’ll let that go for now Pepper, but we’re responsible for each other this summer. You make sure I’m painting and I’ll make sure you are developing or whatever.”

“Deal. Now let’s get going because you know it’ll be like pulling teeth to get Marilyn away from her parents.”

“Don’t worry. We’re going either way. She’s either coming or she’s not, we’re not debating with Aunt Sula about this.” Marilyn’s parents were entirely too protective and they were insistent that she marry Kyle Swanson even though they’d broken up last year. “I’m thinkin’ of doing a series of paintings on each of us and our journey this summer.” She’d spent all night thinking about it. “I’m seeing lots of intense reds and oranges for Marilyn so that has to mean something.” They pulled into the grand old mansion Marilyn’s daddy bought her mama for their wedding.

Dixie laid on the horn. “I refuse to get out of this car and get sucked into their drama. By dinner we’ll be eating gumbo at some restaurant in the French Quarter.”

“That sounds divine! We have to go to that place famous for the beignets!” Pepper squealed and a smile lit up her beautiful face.

“Oh, most definitely! I swear I had powdered sugar on my lips when I woke up this morning!” They began talking over each other about all the food they would try in New Orleans. “Here comes Mar.”

She pulled two large suitcases behind her, a laptop bag draped across her body and a bright red purse hooked through her elbow. She yanked open the door behind Pepper. “Help out ladies so we can get the hell outta here!”

REVIEW ~ Mr. Sinful (Heartfelt Book 1) by Serenity Woods

Get your copy HERE!!!

ABOUT:

Seven Sexy Sins. One Mr. Sinful.

Faith Hillman is in trouble. She’s writing an article on ways to spice up your love life for her popular blog, but she’s hit a major snag—she hasn’t experienced any of the Seven Sexy Sins on her list. Luckily, her brother’s best friend, Rusty Thorne, offers to help with her research.

Having had a crush on him since the age of twelve, Faith agrees, on the proviso that he signs a contract keeping their short-term relationship a secret. Her brother once decked him for kissing her on her eighteenth birthday, so Rusty’s happy to concur.

While they work their way through the wicked list, Rusty enjoys showing Faith all the sexual delights he can think of. But it’s only as the sins draw to a close that he understands that, where love is concerned, he’s the student and Faith’s the teacher.

He’s determined to keep to the terms of the contract, but when it comes to the crunch, will he be able to let her go?

Warning: Includes rebellious hero who enjoys inserting Tab A into Slots B, C, and even occasionally D. Also includes highly inappropriate use of a Mars Bar.

I have to tell you that I absolutely LOVE the falling for your brother’s best friend trope. It’s hard to screw up and when done well, like Serenity Woods has done in Mr. Sinful, well it is a damn pleasure to read.

Faith is a well-known sex and relationships blogger without a lot of experience in either area, but she has nationwide recognition and a great new idea. Seven sexy sins. When her brother’s best mate, Rusty, offers to play her Mr. Sinful for just seven sexy encounters, she accepts without much thought to the consequences. It involves everything you think it would—scorching sex scenes, the feels, aww moments and even some naughty business with a chocolate bar—and then some.

I loved that Faith was the brave one in this relationship. Sure, she was naïve but it was due to a lack of experience not because she was sheltered and she was easy to root for. Fighting her feelings proves to be an impossible task, but watching her straighten her spine and decide to lay it all out there was amazing.

Rusty though, well he was magnificent. So damn tortured and scarred that he couldn’t see how amazing he was, and more importantly, all the good things he deserved. He’s the kind of guy you’re proud to call your book boyfriend. Stubborn to the point of stupidity, good and loving. Oh and did I mention, hot?

My only real complaint was Faith’s brother, Dan. It’s a personal peeve of mine, overprotective family, and he was kind of over the top. I understand his rationale but still, Faith was a grown woman with a job and a home so I think it’s unreasonable for him to think he can have that much say over her love life. He redeemed himself, but I still feel like I owe him a smack upside the head.

Review ~ WishCraft by Savannah Kade

Get your copy HERE!!!

ABOUT:

~~ Sexy, emotional, often funny, always messy, true love romance ~~

Delilah has spent the past year doing what she does best: casting simple spells and trying to get over a heartbreaking betrayal. In doing so, she’s become a not-so-good witch. Picking up men and making them forget her is easier than getting involved.

Brandon can’t remember anything after he left the bar. He has only a foggy memory of a blond and a craving for pumpkin muffins. When he finally figures out what happened that night, he realizes he has to find the woman and break the spell on him. He’s after Delilah, even if he doesn’t know quite what for.

But Delilah isn’t fast enough, and Brandon knows he’s been had. Still, two can play that game! Can he play it without losing his heart?

Meet the Goodmans, a family of modern-day witches in Los Angeles. Follow them from Hollywood Boulevard to the beach, from heartbreak to true love. This series has real emotion, hard won happy endings, and smoking hot romance.

WishCraft is the story of Delilah and Brandon. She practices magic, but not in a point hats and brooms kind of way. Just in a way that allows her to have a little bit of fun between the sheets with a handsome stranger…and have him remember nothing of it the next day. Until she meets Brandon, a good guy, a handsome guy. A guy on whom her little spells doesn’t seem to work. He can’t remember everything, but he also can’t forget some things and it all leaves him worried and intrigued. That is the beauty of Savannah Kade’s modern romance. It is a unique twist on the modern one night stand and the contemporary witch trope, but that’s also what makes it a fun read.

For me, the star of WishCraft is Brandon. He seems like a pretty straightforward guy who takes mostly reasonable steps to figure out what was wrong with him, and the addition of his friend Dan, added a much needed dose of humor. Brandon was a good guy, and he made a few missteps but his intentions were pure. Delilah though, was harder to like for me. She wiped people’s memories and was unrepentant about it, which made it difficult to understand her motives. The one flaw in this story was that the author, Savannah Kade, waited too long to reveal the WHY behind Delilah’s behavior. We get a tiny glimpse, which honestly didn’t make her all that sympathetic. And by the time we do get the big reveal, I found it hard to forgive her. Aside from that small thing, WishCraft was a fun story with a unqiue twist.
