Make It Hurt (Texas Bounty #2) by Jackie Ashenden

Goodreads Review

The Texas Bounty series heats up as a female bounty hunter goes toe-to-toe with the tantalizing biker who never stopped loving her.

Nora Sutcliffe enjoys having tough guys at her mercy—preferably in handcuffs. The best fugitive recovery agent in the business, Nora always gets her man. But when her latest pursuit leads her to a notorious biker hangout, she’s reunited with “Smith”: the one man who was too hot for Nora to handle. Once upon a time, she was a rich girl and he was a bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks. Now she needs his help, and she’ll do whatever it takes to get it.

Eight years ago, Smith let a pretty little Texas debutante break his heart. He picked up the pieces, went to hell and back with the army, then rode out of the darkness with a gang of outlaws at his back. The last thing he needs is a blast from the past like Nora, who has reinvented herself as a gun-toting badass with the stones to challenge him in front of the whole club. But if she thinks Smith will give up one of his brothers for a single night of pleasure, she’s in for a rude awakening.

I loved the first book in the series. After reading it I went straight to netgalley and well this is a huge let down for me. It actually started out strong but where I thought this could work and be of epic proportions. How wrong I am.

Nora Sutcliffe maybe a dumb mistake at the age of 18 that cost a man his reputation. Around 8 years later, Nora is now a bounty hunter and she is out to pick up a skip that leads her back to her biggest mistake at the age of 18.

Smith is the president of the MC and they are trying to go clean the last thing he needs is a bounty hunter on his doorstep even if it is Nora. He wants revenge but he also won’t give up a brother. He stills an ace up his sleeve with having some dirt on the duchess herself.

I liked the idea between a bounty hunter crossover MC book but I got a whole lot of nothing. And my interest in the end just fizzled out. There was a whole lot of going around in circles in why Nora didn’t speak up against her father. Add in the fact that she was a debutante and well it is kind of hard to believe. There is holding a grudge and then there is Smith. Blackmail and extortion to get what he wants and that is when I tapped out.

On top of that I didn't really connect with the characters oh sure I liked them well enough I just don't see the point to the whole setup of the plot. Flimsy at best.

I’ll give the next book in the series a try that is for sure.

Between Here and the Horizon by Callie Hart

Goodreads Review

“You think you know me. You think you want to know me. But trust me, Miss Lang. Pursuing me will be the worst mistake you ever make. I’m broken beyond repair...

...and I take great pleasure in breaking everyone else around me.”

Ophelia Lang needs money, and she needs it bad. Her parent’s restaurant is going under, and ever since she lost her job teaching third grade elementary, scraping enough cash together to pay the bills has proven almost impossible. Her parents are on the brink of losing their home. The vultures are circling overhead. So when Ophelia is offered an interview for a well-paid private tutoring gig in New York, how can she possibly say no?

Ronan Fletcher is far from the overweight, balding businessman Ophelia expected him to be. He’s young, handsome, and wealthy beyond all reason. He’s also perhaps the coldest, rudest person she’s ever met, and has a mean streak in him a mile and a half wide. A hundred grand is a lot of money, however, and if tolerating his frosty temperament, his erratic mood swings and whatever else he throws at her means she’ll get paid, then that is what Ophelia will do.

Her new boss is keeping secrets, though. Awful, terrible secrets.

The ghosts of Ronan Fletcher’s past are about to turn Ophelia’s future upside down, and she can’t even see it coming.

I love crying in the rain. Because when I do, no one can hear the pain. Or see the tears streaming down my face. -Unknown-

It has been a long time where I have felt so emotional about a book. It’s hard to put into words how I actually feel about this book. Got some real soul searchin’ going on here.

For the sake of keeping things under wrap in regards to the book I won’t be naming the characters let’s just go with the heroine and the Hero.

Our heroine needs a job after losing hers as a teacher she applies for a position to look after two young children. After the interview our heroine is actually unsure whether she wants the job or not but to save her family’s restaurant she takes it and moves out to Maine, to the Causeway.

Our heroine adapts to her life for the next six months but with that twist holy shite Ms. Hart I didn’t see that coming and it took a chunk of my heart right out combined with that letter? Well bugger me, I was slayed. It stayed that way for a long time during the book. Our heroine is tested in many ways and to each one she rises to the challenge. She is strong, kind, patient, courageous, and intelligent. Well you get my drift.

Our Hero is a whole different matter. He is ornery, a hermit, he is a shattered kaleidoscope a mess of a man who up to now has been happy with the life he has been leading. He is brutally honest, fearless and did I mention ornery?

“You’re looking pretty gray. Do you think you can be cordial for a couple of minutes while I check your temperature?” “Sure. As long as you don’t try to stick a thermometer up my ass.” “I promise that, that’s the very last thing I plan on doing.”

But realizing that he wants to be more and to be seen for whom he is.
“I’m not bored,” he said slowly, his voice low. “I haven’t been bored for a single second in your company, Lang. From day one you’ve intrigued me.”

And he owns the fact that he is broken, but aren’t we all in some way? Our Hero sacrificed a lot. Gave up on something that he thought would still be there and it backfired majorly. Sometimes things are unforgiveable. But for all his flaws he is a knight with tarnished and battered armour.
Our heroine doesn’t want to be attracted to the hero but in the end how can she not. All of his flaws
are what make him who he is and well I love him. But our heroine realizes that.

He was mint and strawberry, chocolate and pistachio all rolled into one.

Once our Hero stopped being ornery he became more than likeable.

“So don’t walk away for good. I get it if you have to walk away for now. But make sure you come back, okay? This isn’t done yet and you know it.”

Based in Maine on an island filled with mystery, eeriness, and wild, rugged with a gothic vibe and surrounded by a tightknit community this has the perfect setting. A setting with a story that is un-put-down-able that makes you question everything that you are reading.

Then there are more twists and turns to come that leave me devastated, heartbroken, empty and wishing that things could be different but then we wouldn’t have witnessed something so beautiful.
This is a story that spans over years, it is dark, painful, and gritty and effects everyone.

Oddly enough the author hit the exact balance when it came to there being humorous and bantering moments and when there was a seriousness to the book which is admirable because not everyone can get that balance right.

This whole book could have gone utterly epically and hopelessly wrong but all the factors that should have caused it worked in its favor.

That 5 star read was within finger grasping but I could never fully grab on to it. Which is a crying shame. The end felt rushed to some extent. I was missing depth to their relationship. There is one important fact that I thought they should have spoken about. It seemed to be important to me.

Candy Cane Christmas by Laura Trentham

Goodreads Review

A very Cottonbloom Christmas!

Jeremy Whitehurst has tried to leave his bad-boy behavior and tarnished image behind in Alabama for a fresh start in Cottonbloom, Louisiana. Unfortunately, trouble has dogged him across state lines. Stepping up and protecting a young woman from her abusive boyfriend earned him a beat-down and got him fired. Although the thanks in the girl’s dark eyes made it all worth it, he recognizes she’s just a different kind of trouble. A trouble he’s not sure he can stay away from.

One rebellious summer dented Kayla Redmond’s carefree innocence. Now her focus is on completing her associate’s degree for bookkeeping, and no one is going to derail her plans. Unfortunately, her job at Fournette Brothers Designs puts her in the path of the one man who has seen her at her worst, yet his blue eyes don’t judge her. He sees beyond the brokenness inside of her and rouses her wild side once more. But, that’s what got her in trouble in the first place.

Christmas is coming and Kayla’s ready to forgive herself and take a chance. But the holiday has only ever brought heartache to Jeremy. No Christmas miracle kept his mother clean or out of jail. Will one reckless night and some time spent in the back of a cop car be the best present Jeremy’s ever been given?

First of all let me say that I love Christmas. There is such a wonder feel but when it comes to books about Christmas not so much.

Secondly we are talking about Ms. Trentham and I love her Cottonbloom series. Since I read the first book I have been waiting for Kayla and Jeremy’s book.

Jeremy Whitehurst lived in Falcon and has had a hard past and has made some mistakes. He tries to move on but lives with what he’s done. He hasn’t ever had a proper Christmas. He has feelings for Kayla ever since he saved her. But thinks he isn’t good enough for her. He is a bit of a Grinch though.

Kayla Redmond loves Christmas and she has also had a crush on Jeremy for a very long time. She gets a job at Fournette’s Designs as an accountant. They can’t avoid one another anymore and they become closer with some stolen kisses until the dam breaks.

This is a sweet story, with some spice and I feel good Christmas romance. Well done Ms. Trentham.

Marry Me Mad (Blueberry Lane 3 - The Rousseaus #2) by Katy Regnery

Goodreads Review

Did you fall in love with The English Brothers? Were you hot for the Winslows?

Katy Regnery's Blueberry Lane series continues with The Rousseau siblings!

For as long as Madeleine “Mad” Rousseau can remember, she’s been the “sweet” twin to her sister Jax’s “sassy.” But after an especially painful break-up, Mad decides she’s had enough of being sweet. Children’s librarian during the day, she begins visiting Philly’s seedier nightspots on a quest for adventure and experience. When Cortlandt “Cort” Ambler, the ex-boyfriend of Mad’s sister, Jax, saves her from disaster on one such evening, an unlikely friendship is born between the rebellious librarian and the moonlighting pianist…and two broken hearts begin a journey toward being whole again.

Good thinking Ms. Regnery in writing Jax’s book before writing Mad’s book because otherwise I would have had an absolute conniption. I knew why I didn’t like Jax and well now it has just been confirmed.
Mad is Jax’s twin sister, she is the quiet one who for some time has always lived in her sisters shadow.
Mad is a great heroine well she is slightly whiney but who am I to judge? Just a reader. A word of advice to all you ladies never ever date a therapist, they are manipulative, sociopaths and well just not a good idea. Unless you want that person to use all and I mean ALL of your insecurities against you. This happens to Mad and for the final time she calls it quits.
While having a walking pity party, Mad lands in a part of Philly she hasn’t been to before and decides to live by ordering four shots of tequila, drinking them all at once.
“I just threw up… in a bar.” “Yes, you did,” he confirmed, standing in front of her at the foot of the stairs. “Spectacularly.” “Oh God,” she muttered, leaning her forehead on her knees. “The good news is that most of the alcohol probably wasn’t absorbed into your system yet, so you’ll feel much better in a little while.” She sobbed softly, then sniffed. “No lady would throw up at a bar.” “You’re clearly not a lady,” he teased.
That is until she is saved by Cort Ambler. Wow, I am impressed he is a fantastic Hero. He is the broody musician with a heart of gold. He is always doing the right thing even if it ruins the thing he wanted the most. Luckily enough fate gives them a second chance. Cort is an honourable man. He is funny and hits on Mad right from the start.
“I’m not kissing you.”
“You want to though.”
“Merde, you’re cocky.”
But through Cort saving Mad, and them even spending such short time with one another they still don’t want the evening to end.
“Do you drink tea?”
He fucking hated tea. “I’d love some.”
Although I didn’t get it all the drama and why Mad couldn’t have grown a backbone sooner but hey I only have a brother and well things were easily resolved in that department. I’d punch him or call him something quite inventive and then that would have been that. Mad keeps on starting something and then pulls back due to her sister. There is something that is unforgivable and it is Jax’s story to tell. But that is what happens when they get stuck between sisters. See below for the spoiler to the twin sister conundrum.
As Sloane put it
It’s beyond girl code. Its sister code. And that shit is Kevlar.
You don’t date your sister’s ex-boyfriend. Even if it was only for a month, a week, an hour and a second. The feelings had always been there but were only dormant until they met again. And Jax did it all just because her ego took a hit and after so many years she didn’t say anything.

I found this book to still be quite glossy, I was missing some depth to it. They’d meet up although they had commitments and then would just leave. But it is better than Jonquils for Jax. I also have to ask myself if the author is just writing the books in a quick fashion to just please her readers without any real depth. I know I’m being a cow but I feel as if the quality has lessened.

Tonic by Staci Hart

Goodreads Review

Joel Anderson doesn’t take anything seriously.

Not his relationships, which have been few and far between since his brutal divorce. Not the drama of working in a tattoo parlor, which seems to be around every corner. When things get him down, he smiles and cracks a joke. But he’s not the kind of man you cross, or you’ll find yourself at the wrong end of his fists.

Annika Belousov takes everything seriously.

Like her job as a reality television producer, given that she typically has something to prove. Or her love life, which is defined by a series of requirements — affluent, ambitious, accomplished, to name a few. Definitely her family, who worked their whole lives to afford her every opportunity, a sacrifice she doesn’t take lightly. When she’s tapped to produce a reality show at Joel’s shop, she doesn’t think twice, just goes in for the kill, as if there were any other way.

The second Annika walks into Joel’s shop, he makes it his mission to crack her open, but she’s not having it. He’s all wrong — too crass, too hairy, too un-serious. But it doesn’t take her long to find out there’s more to him than smirks and tattoos. And what she finds could put her career and his heart on the line.

Not that Joel cares. Because for the first time in a long time, he’s found his tonic.

My thoughts on this book are solely my own which in the grand scheme of things means jack shit. I know that I am in the minority so nuff said really.

At 52 % I just stopped reading. I had lost interest before then but there it was just real. I couldn’t continue. I love the older man/younger woman trope and this book could have been a real hit my problem? And maybe this is stupid but the whole reality TV show isn’t my thing. I know that everything is overdramatised but it still didn’t make it any better. These are real people with lives and all the problems that they have. Yes they signed up for it but it still didn’t sit right with me. I also knew that this book was going to take a direction I wouldn’t have been happy with.

Based solely on what I’ve read so far I’ll write a review.

Joel has owned a tattoo parlour since he has been 19 years old. His parents died and he then took in and looked after his younger brother. He had a destructive relationship and then marriage and since then he hasn’t had a relationship yes he’s had women here and there but nothing more than that. That is until he meets Annika who is one of the producers of the show.  Up until now he hasn’t really taken anything seriously but then again why should he.

I like Joel. He is everything you want in a Hero. Funny, sexy, and a hot hairy bastard.

Annika is the ice queen of the business. But starting the new show and meeting Joel she starts to thaw. She has become a mini version of her boss Laney and let’s face it Laney is a grade A bitch by treating people as meat puppets didn’t endear her to me. I actually wanted to throat punch her. Annika has a plan and a specific type of man she wants that isn’t Joel but they have chemistry and in the end that can’t be denied.

I’m indifferent about Annika to be honest. I couldn’t care less and I actually couldn’t see what Joel found so appealing about her. They get down and dirty and those scenes are hot.

I think as my recommendation you should give the book a try.

To Love and to Cherish (The Wedding Belles #3) by Lauren Layne

Goodreads Review

Sex and the City meets The Wedding Planner in The Wedding Belles, a contemporary and witty romance series about three high-powered New York City women who can plan any wedding—but their own.

Alexis Morgan has spent the past six years devoted to turning her tiny start-up into Manhattan’s premiere wedding planning company, The Wedding Belles. Now that her business is thriving, it’s time to turn towards her much neglected personal life, and Alexis approaches her relationships like she does everything else: with a plan.
Not a part of that plan is Logan Harris, the silent partner in the Belles, and the one person who’s been there for her since the very beginning. But Alexis needs someone fun, and Logan’s all business, all the time—except when a late night at the office ends with an unexpected kiss that leaves the usually cool and together Alexis reeling.

Logan has lusted after Alexis since the day he walked into the tiny Harlem apartment that used to double as her office. But the ambitious wedding planner has always been untouchable...until now. Alexis has made it clear that she’s on the dating market—and equally clear that he’s not in the running. But when Alexis finds herself in need of a date for her sister’s last minute wedding in Florida, Logan knows it’s the perfect time to show Alexis that there’s more to him than numbers and spreadsheets—and beneath the pinstripes and glasses lies a hot-blooded heartthrob. As Florida’s sultry days turn into even hotter nights, Logan’s out to convince Alexis that the fling of a lifetime could just maybe turn into forever...

What a great ending to an absolutely fantastic series. How I shall miss all the gals at the Wedding Belles. Before I get to my review I have to say that writing about Wedding Planners worked really well. Huh who would’ve thought? I’m not all that into weddings to be honest.
4 ‘8 years, 4 months & twelve days’ Stars.
This is Alexis Morgan and Logan Harris’s book.
We get a flashback to how Alexis & Logan meet and it is the best. Right time, right place. Although they have chemistry they put it on the backburner and become business partners.
“Why would you offer this?” He jerked his head in the direction of her folder. “It’s a good plan. Worth the risk.”
“No, it’s something more than that. Another reason. I’d like to know what.”
“Say yes to my proposal, Alexis. Say yes, and maybe someday I’ll tell you the other reason.”
Since Alexis has been young she has always known what she wants to be a Wedding Planner not just any one planner in the business though but the best in the business. She could have gotten a loan from her father but there were stipulations and after what happened with her sister well yeah I wouldn’t have done that either.
Eight years later her business is booming in New York. She is the best in the business. Her personal life? Not so much. That is until she gets a dreaded phone call from her that her sister is most likely pregnant. Not bad right? There is a slight issue with this. But hey it stayed in the family right? Right then and there Alexis decides to change her personal life.
God how my heart hurt for Alexis. It must have been tough and although both the sister and the ex-boyfriend, current boyfriend of sister were clean about it still has to cut fucking deep.
Logan Harris sexy Brit and all-round great guy. As an Englishwoman there is nothing better than a Brit’s accent. Or in this case more specific English accent. He moved to the US to study and well hasn’t left one of the main reasons he hasn’t left is a woman. Not any woman. No Alexis. 
But time is running out. Logan is being called back home so that his parents can retire and he can take over the reins. He’s not entirely sure if he wants to though. But then he finds out that Alexis is open to dating again just not him. Bless his cotton socks. He fights and boy how he fights. He has the patience of a saint. He deserves someone who isn’t Alexis. Well actually they are great together when Alexis drops being such a control freak and just goes with it.  I’m not her biggest fan.
Logan is one of the hottest accountants I have ever met but what is it about constantly referring to being an accountant Alexis, huh? Did my bloody nut in to be honest. But then again Alexis is oblivious. She likes it safe, her company is safe and quite frankly I could have decked her one for how she treated Logan.
This book is bittersweet at times and heart-warming at others. There is great banter, and chemistry once we get to the chemistry.  But it is a good and solid build up and as they have been in limbo as in more than friends and less than lovers they both need time to adjust. Alexis requires more time than Logan as I said OBLIVIOUS. It is quite amusing seeing Alexis processing her thoughts and feelings when it comes to Logan.
And at the end? We find out the real reason. Oh Logan, sigh.
“Why did you offer a woman you’d just met your entire inheritance?” she asked. His lips pressed to the centre of her forehead.  “Because you weren’t a woman I’d just met. From the moment I saw you, I knew. I knew you were the woman I loved. “I can’t decide if that’s nuts or romantic,” Alexis said with a little laugh.
I am sad that this is the end of the series but I must say that this series is a reread and worth every moment of it.
I docked a star because well I can. And I would have liked to have seen is Alexis sorting things out with Adam. And Logan telling his father that he won’t be moving back to England. That was missing. And Alexis annoyed me so there is that as well.

Use Somebody by Beck Anderson

Goodreads Review

Jeremy King, Hollywood über-agent to the stars, knows that sharks gotta swim. He’s one of them, after all. He’s never met a deal he couldn’t strike or an argument he couldn’t win. LA is his kind of town—they both never stop moving.

So when his friend and client, movie star Andrew Pettigrew, invites him on a “man-cation” to the wilds of Idaho for a little fly-fishing, Jeremy’s not so sure. He might not have cell service. There’s no way there’ll be any supermodels to woo. And his idea of the great outdoors is a drive down the Pacific Coast Highway in his Tesla Model S—moose definitely do not factor into the picture.

Fitting then that because of a moose, he meets Macy Shea Summerlin, the best fly-fishing guide on the South Fork. Jeremy’s surprised and tantalized, but Macy isn’t having any of his alpha male posturing. She gives as good as she gets, and she knows how to throw a mean right hook.

As the two of them get tangled up in each other’s lives, both Jeremy and Macy must come to terms with winning and losing and letting love in. And Jeremy has to find the answer to his own question: Is he simply “using” Macy or could he really “use” someone like her? Find out in Use Somebody, book 3 of the Fix You series

3 amusing yet not spectacular stars.  

Jeremy King is THE agent in Hollywood.  Men envy him. Women want him for his money, looks and standing.  He's alright with that but maybe not as much as he tries to tell himself or us for that matter.   

We first meet Jeremy when he is on the plane to go on a fishing trip with his best buddy Andrew 'Andy' Pettigrew. His story took place in the Fix You books.  

Luckily for me I know James Dean and Marlon Brando. So I don't need any film education thank you very much so I got to read on according to Mr. King.  

Jeremy is ... hard to describe really he wants to be the best at everything it's all about the win nothing more nothing less.  

I found him humorous his inner musings were hilarious although it did get tedious at times.  Whereas I enjoyed a book solely from a male POV. I couldn't really take him seriously.  Especially when it came to his obsession with Macy she seems to be the only good looking woman in a 50 mile radius we he still have been interested? Maybe.  

Throughout the book he would joke and even trying to hook up with Macy I found it hard to believe.  

Macy Summerlin is the lodge fisherwoman guide and Jeremy is intrigued. I didn’t get enough information on Macy which made it all rushed at the end of the book well for me anyway. Macy is a mystery.  We don’t know what her story is but it comes out to late. Well for me anyway.  

I liked this book.  I was enjoying the book but suddenly at 60 % I was lost.  The heroine’s issue was just thrown in and I was like huh what? Where did that come from? No clue to be honest. If Jeremy noticed small things while they spent time together then maybe as a build-up it would have been better. Alas it was not.  

I'm not entirely sure what the author was trying to go for here.  It started out as a rom com book and that was the vibe that I was getting from it. And then once again it felt off. It was also slightly cookie cutter. The ending felt rushed.  I missed more dialogue rather than Jeremey’s constant inner musings.

This author knows how to tell a story but this book just isn't me.  That doesn’t mean anything in the grand scheme of things.

Book received in exchange for an honest review.

The Mediator (Jade Dober #1) by Milana Jacks


The world is fractured. Few dare to cross the lines dividing the three main factions – Humans, Horned, and Shifters. Except for the Mediators trained to settle inter-factional disputes and enforce the Human Office’s regulations in the lawless zones.

Jade Dober is one of those Mediators, though sometimes she feels more like a glorified halfling social worker sent into the hinterlands to make it appear the Office gives a crap.

Deep in the Second Nevada Trade Zone is her next case: a human/werewolf halfling, a trade school student, trapped in a “wild” state. The teen’s half-sister wants to claim him under her pack—a sure death sentence—while the school’s principal fights to free the human trapped within the animal.

Saving a life is Jade’s stock-in-trade. But when her investigation uncovers an illegal plot to breed a new species of shifter, the resulting ruckus captures the attention of the Horned King. This is bad. Very bad. Because Jade isn’t quite what she seems. And if the Horned King lays claim to her first, no one on this planet—or her own—can save her.

First word that comes to mind when I was reading this book. Bizarre, utterly and totally bizarre. I mean that in the most positive way thought. Bare bones of the book coming so I won’t give too much away.
Jade Dober is a mediator. Her next job is tough. She has been called out to the zones to mediate a case between a school, consisting of a lot of different types of shifters and a pure shifter pack of wolves. They think that one of the shifters has gone wild but the whole entire case seems to be off.
For various reasons the heir alpha of the Sound Pack Sarsen Gael gets involved. He has his reasons. The Horned King gets involved he also has his reasons. Jade doesn’t know whether to eat the two or fuck them.
The female protagonist is strong and I loved her sense of humor. I also love that she gets the job done no matter what. And she is a female anti-hero in my eyes.
Jade is also other which means she isn’t a shifter, a horned or a human. In all honesty I was thrown off by what she is and other things that I didn’t expect to happen that did throughout the book.
It’s a race against time and death and well Jade is losing. She is stuck between a rock and three hard places. But she still has a couple of aces up her sleeves.
In regards to the male characters in the book I can’t decide who I find more appealing the Demon King who is slightly bonkers, okay really bonkers or the bald headed (not that is a problem, very sexy) pure shifter wolf of one of the biggest packs there is.
Ms. Jacks has created a unique world where three species have to co-exist with one another. The humans, the horned and the shifters. Whereas I think that the world created is fantastic. It is original unique and at some points utterly surreal. And yet I still had problems with it. Maybe I wasn’t concentrating hard enough.
It on my part was hard to immerse myself into this world and navigate through all the species and what Jade is and that there are factions and laws and each species has their own law. Very confusing that is why I docked a star. There are so many chess pieces in play here that it is hard to keep up with what is going on.
I would certainly recommend this book as it’s full of surprises, originality and nothing like I have read before in the paranormal romance genre so far.
