Rating: 4 Stars

     This is a story of second chances and how; even when the head doesn't want, the heart still holds hope when the love it's true and pure.

     The story starts with Molly coming back to Hope for her sister Emma and Luke's wedding, the characters of Hope Flames the first book of the series. She hasn't been in Hope for many years and is dreading coming back but more importantly seeing Carter again. He is her old school flame and their past together has left hurt in her heart.

     Carter holds hope that Molly will one day forgive him for been a young stupid teen and breaking her heart with his careless words. But it is not an easy journey for this two even when they still have feelings for one another.

     And of course there is that event that most occur so the heroine has to stay so the story can develop.

     What I like about this book is that it has a long story, not every other page involves sex, and that the sex scenes are descriptive but not to long. For example they are not 3 chapters long. Also there is a lot of time in between. The characters are not having sex 10 a day and/or every day of the week. That gets boring real fast. 

     Jaci Burton still has the ability to capture my attention from page one and my heart from the first time their eyes meet. It is very difficult to put down one of her books but I have two preschoolers that need my attention. Dang you Jaci for making such good stories (but I guess that's why you sale ^_^). I can't wait to read Chelsea and Bash story, their characters caught my attention in this book.

     This short stories have me sitting here in front of the computer thinking..."What can I say besides WOW?"...

     Okay lets take this one at a time. First King of Hearts. Although this book was previously previously published in the Guns and Roses anthology in 2012 I had not read it.

     So my thoughts here? WTF!! Can't this people give poor Cam a break. How is he suppose to know who does or did what? He is not a god. And then when he comes home to he's family? Again WTF!! Cam got me so mad that I wanted to slap him in the face for doing that to his children and for bottling all that stuff up instead of letting at least his wife in so she can help. But in the end everything went it's own course and Cam finally understood that his family was his salvation and that no matter what might come they'll always have his back.

     Next comes Rough Road. This one got my attention more because of the situation with Westin that the trio in their anniversary getaway. Bullying is a situation that is growing in the real world at an alarming rate. And this story shows us that we have to take actions and stay united as a strong family in the worst of times.

     And last All Knocked Up which I still think is the best couple in the series. Or at least the hottest one. Even when pregnant Keely wanted nothing more than to jump her hubbies bones. Well at least one bone I know of! In this story there are unexpected but not unpleasant surprises. And then there is more McKay family support and unconditional love. Which is one of the reasons I love this family. They remind me of mine although we are not that many, I think?!

     Over all it was an amazing book. Lorelei did an excellent job. I just can't wait for Dalton's book and keep praying that Chet, Remy and assorted West others get a story two even if it's a short one like Nick's and Blake's.

     Well I can really say that Mrs. James is one awesome writer. I love the situations she present in the stories (as they are not the same boring scenarios told in a different way) and the way the characters have to go about solving them, mostly because it's a problem of their own making. In this next chapter in the McKay family it is Colt's shot at a HEA if he can make everything work out on his personal and professional life and prove not only to those around him but to himself that above all he in not the same self destructive guy he once was.

     In the mean time India has to try and keep her hands but mostly her heart away from Colt. She has her own issued to deal with and prove to herself that she is worthy of Colt and the love he offers.

     I cried and laughed and got mad, but must of all I fell in love.

Rating: 3 Stars

     Even tho I have given this series a 3 stars rating on all the books it's not that it's bad or okay or anything like that. If we're been truthful it's more like a 3.75, but why the 3 and not 4 as is nearer my actual rating? Well first because most of the characters that are NOT the paranormals I find them weak. Yes, they've gone through a lot and are wounded and I get it but can't they be less whinny. I mean after their story we see that they've changed.

     For example Cecil the alpha's mate. In his book, he was always terrified and couldn't go anywhere without Maverik but in recent books, he is mischievous and is always plotting to get in trouble and have the wolfs run around terrified for their mates. Why couldn't we start seen that in his book? That way it wouldn't have been a surprise.

     Another fact is that the shifters practically turn into psychologists. Every one of the mates has a problem or another in their past. Germ-phobics, psycho-ex boyfriends, drugs, you name it they have it. Can't they be your normal average people and just have a problem with school? But I bet even that will get a crazily obsessed professor or something.

     As for the stories per se they, even tho are short and the romance occurs in some cases in a short time, are well developed and the characters are likable. I like that there are other series that connect to this one. Like Zeus's Pack which starts with Jasper who was originally from the Brac Pack until he mates Zeus made an appearance on Brac territory.

     Also, I like that there are different spices of shifters like this book with the bear. In this story, Tater's dad is a homophobic jerk that throws Tater out of his house when he discovers the truth about his son. With nowhere to go, he nevertheless goes. Enter Olsen and things start to go wrong when it is known that Tater's dad knew about what his brother was doing in his barn that affects the paranormal community.

     In the coming books, I guess we'll start seeing where all this goes as the leaders of the paranormal communities go about resolving this new problem.

     In this book we have Tom-a reclusive, angry man that's trying to accept his past mistakes and failing miserably-and Alex or Lexie-who has being planing all her life to cross the Trans AM. Lexi for being a woman is having some trouble finding a riding partner to cross from the shores of the pacific ocean to Yorkshire's shore on the Atlantic. When she puts an add looking for a partner and "Tom" answers to "Alex" she has no idea that both of them has being deceiving and deceived. It was Tom's sister Taryn that answer the add for fear her brother have an accident on the road an no body knows and maybe for other reasons?

     After an unpleasant beginning to their journey things take a turn for the better and as the miles go by Tom and Lexie develop more that a companionship but neither is willing to accept it as it is which leads to some mistakes and stupid decisions. But in the end not even they could fight against the Trans AM magic.

     The story is a really good one but my favorite part? "Sometimes penance helps. My dad had the pie" I think this is the crucial moment of the book and it's also the one who brought tears to my eyes. I think forgiveness of self is the first step to spiritual healing and those words were the ones that made Tome take the necessary action to grab happiness by both hands and take it back to Oregon on top of a bike!

     What I like about this story is that we were able to delve into the mind of the bad guy if only for brief moments so we could understand things more deeply.

     From the beginning of the story I was captivated and I thanks my Secret Santa for the recommend. I love that the book is part of a series as I don't like stand alone's that much even when each book can stand alone on its own right. But this way we get to see what happens with other characters that might have grabbed our notice.

     This is the forth book I read about twins and I have to say there is something appealing to them. It might be the connection they have or something else but I wouldn't mind reading some more.

     The only thing that annoyed me was that poor Rye got stuck with not having some for a couple of days, I just hope he's the first one to impregnate her(even if they don't know as they're twins).

     I can't wait to read the rest in particular Stef's story!!

     This book was recommended to my as part of a challenge. All I can say is WOW. I really loved the book. Master Z was very cautious not to push Jessica to far and make her feel beautiful about having a little more meat than other women. As for Jessica we see how a shy, conservative woman can be overwhelm and at times confused with how her body responds to certain visuals and stimulation.

     It was a book where even if it was developed mostly in a sex club there was a story in it and not all the book was sex, sex, sex; like say Lora Leigh's Bound Hearts series (not that it was bad, just I like some romance that is not express via sexual interaction only). I will be definitively reading the other books. I want to see Cullen and Daniel have their own HEA.

     We all know that many people don't look kindly to homo or bisexual people. More so for redneck, he-man cowboys. This story shows us that and more.

     After leaving for Brazil, with the intention of not coming back, Edgard is now looking for a place to live after things home don't go as he thought they would. Since Trevor is now married he doesn't think he has a chance at being happy with him, even more so as he gets to know Chassie more deeply and realizes she if perfect for Trevor. What they didn't count on was Chassie knowing the truth of their past together and proposing they be with each other in front of her.

     When all is said and done Chassie can't deny that part of her is involved in a deeper level and that makes for an explosive encounter and even better love. This book shows us that if we truly love we accept and in the end it could be even better for us.

Rating: 5 Stars

     Maya Banks delivers once again.

     In this new historical romance story by Mrs. Banks we have Eveline Armstrong-a gentile lady who has being wrong by those that love her-and her clan's archenemy Laird Graeme Montgomery.

     After a decree from the king to unite the clans in marriage, to starve off impending war between the two strongest clans under his rule, Eveline has her opportunity to have a happy normal life if she has the courage to take it.

     Mean while Graeme fights his attraction to his daft wife, only to discover the she is not daft but deaf and that he can have a real marriage and wife. Soon passion ignites and feelings start to surface. But as more time passes it is apparent that the Montgomery clan is not as accepting of their mistress as Graeme is. What will he do and will he do it before is too late?

     It is here that lies the true test of love, and I think that Mrs. Banks developed this book to reflect the deep emotions running rampant between the characters. I cried like my heart was being rip apart for poor Eveline. Specially when she was telling Graeme the story behind the rumor that she was daft.

     This book has depth in conveying what the characters were feeling.

     What I have left to say is that I can't wait to read Bowen's story!

     I love how Tara struggles with the mistakes of her past and how slowly she comes out of the shell in which she's being hiding to become a better woman. I also like the danger in the element that was Dennis. There is no good story without a good douse of trouble and crazy as batshit bad guys.

     I can't wait it read Victoria and Eli's story.

     OMG this book was truly amazing. In the times this book takes place it was very important to stay out of the gossip channels. For that and other much greater reason the Duke of Marchbourne is dead set in staying above all this. But when faced with the country mouse that is his wife, he might not get his wish.

     Charlotte tries very hard to be the perfect duchess for her husband. Even going so far as to withhold her bodies response to the pleasure her husbands touch brings her. But in trying to please and make each other happy, they are miserable and making the other so. But in the end not even society's rules of property and decorum could keep this couple from expressing their love in the baser of forms.

     I love the way that Charlotte no matter how much refinement and instruction stayed true to her heart and was made happier for it. What happens behind closed married doors, should stay there. No body needs to know of it. And I applaud her for not faulting an eleven year old for the sins of his father.

     And although March has a long way to go in accepting the nature of his reactions to his wife are his and not because of his blood, he has taken the first step. It takes a real man to know his faults but a real gentleman to deal with it.

     This truly is an amazing book with romance(of course), gossip, an duels of honor. A great start to a new historical trilogy.

     The way Denver and Adam met WOW *fanning self* Can you say HOT!! The way Adam struggled with his OCD and how Denver "punished" him for making decisions that were not his to make because of it. Louisa. Just love her and admire her for making herself the way she was just to be content with herself. El and Paul. Just cause I got to "see" them again.

What I Didn't Like
     Stupid, Bully Brad. I was thinking to punch him just to realize what a wimp he really was.

     A really good, sweet story that had me at times teary-eyed. I really think the title suits the book and I'm looking forward to the next one but more specifically to Nick's book.

     I can't say enough how much I loved this book. It had all the right elements to make it exiting plus it wasn't long enough to make it boring or short enough to keep you wanting more AND it left you wanting more of the other characters.

     I liked the chemistry between Ellen and Caleb. The sexual tension and the mix of what they wanted and what they desired. Also liked the way Caleb treated Henry even when he wasn't his son. Not many men can be gentlemen.

     I cannot wait for the next installment Flirting with Disaster, Katie's book!

Well this is his story and it is heart braking to find out that he didn't know he was a daddy and that his baby was a couple months old.

     In this story as much as Skylar wants to be with him she is afraid he's with her out of a sense of obligation. What she doesn't know is that his pretending to be his brother to be with her was in a way his way of wanting to be with her. As the story progress and she realizes this she is torn between wanting to believe her heart and wanting to believe her mind, which tells her to finish all between them.

This book had me on edge from page one. I had like a casillion theories and none were close to the truth!! This is truly a suspense book.

     It was very intriguing that the author let us in in a small part of the mystery. Into the scene that started it all but without even a hint as to why or who made the killings. Also even that there was a lot of evidence pointing to the fact that the former Chief of police was involved and that it didn't came as a surprise it was all meticulously done as to not give us a single hint as to the real culprit.

     I was also desperate to know what was the damn secret that Savannah was keeping from Zach. I had an idea of what might have been that kept coming to me in a variety of forms but I always rejected it. I didn't even thought of what actually happened.

     This book was genius and well executed. I will be eagerly awaiting on Samantha's book.

     This book was full of action and the story line is to die for. I can't wait for the next one. See what happens with Torin and Raine, Eirik and Cora, and what other things are in store for this characters. I still can believe that thing about Eirik!

     I can recommend this read for anybody who likes paranormal and YA. You won't regret it.

     This book had me on the edge of my sit the whole time. I've being unconsciously reading lately books where the hero is a rock star and it's really getting to me. This rock stars are HOT!

     What stayed with me from this book was the scene at almost the end when Maggie's ex finds her and he wants to punish her, that last words before the next chapter, what he wanted to do. Many a woman that are abused don't have a knight in shining armor to come to the rescue and have to suffer this kind of abuse.

     And it is really awful what they choose to keep quiet because they are afraid. This story just made me glad that everything is not so bad in the world and that even if it's make believe there are victims that find their HEA.

     I can't wait for the next book and I hope for an awesome story as this one was for Jake and Raine.

     In this story we have Paul (1st person POV), who is struggling to make ends meet when his girlfriend of 7, 8 years leaves him for an art professor. He is psychologically affected by all this because he thinks he's not good enough for anybody.

     When Emanuel enters the picture it will take all he has to make Paul aware of his appeal and that he has the charm and wit to hold his own on the dating pool. But when El starts to let Paul know how he feels and Paul can't take it, it might all come to an end.

     It takes just a maternal push for Paul to know what he has with El is a really good thing and that what matters is not who you love but that, that love is true and lasting.

     I really loved this story because it reminded me of my brother-in-law and how much he struggled because he didn't had the support of the family that should have being there for him. I knew he was gay from the first time I met him but it was plain to me that his family was homophobic and it didn't help that his father (who didn't know at the time he was gay) and his mother (who DID know) made remarks like "that fucking gay" and stuff like that.

     It is really sad when family don't support their gay members or when they might have a suspicion but don't want it to be true. I have an uncle that is like that with his son although we (the rest of the family) know how it is.

     I'm always happy to know when men like that (gay) are supported and loved, like an other uncle's "sister"-in-law. And I say sister because she's transsexual.

     So all in all I love the story and the dynamic of the characters and Paul's and El's parents for being supportive about it.

     As they make their way to Vartan's spaceship their passion ignites and in a secluded cave they give free rain to it with no promises of beyond their time on Utuja. But of course it doesn't go that way and they fall in love but can't admit it.

     Their intimate moments were full of heat and heart. Even the passionate ones. I liked this story very much and think it was a good second book to the series. I just think that the series could use a few more books and the author could use some of the secondary characters like the servant that Tamara was jealous of in Contract to Pleasure.

     I first discovered Ednah through her pseudonym E.B. Walters and her Adult series the Fitzgerald Family. I soon looked her up to see how many books and/or series she'd written. That's how I found her YA series The Guardian Legacy which had Awakened, the prequel, and was about to released Betrayed. I've been following her since and when I read that she was starting a new series I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. Needless to say when I saw it on Netgalley I had to have it.

     I can only say wow. This author keep impressing me. I keep saying that I don't like 1st person POV, but really if authors could learn to write like this I wouldn't mind. I can count in the palm of one hand the authors who I'll read work on 1st person POV and Ednah is one.

     You are so immerse in the plot that you won't ask yourself 'what is this character thinking?'. The story and the characters are well developed I really wouldn't change anything. This story is so different from others I've read. I can honestly say I can't wait to read the next one and see what is in store for Raine and Torin. I mean who wouldn't want to know what's next with that ending? Seriously what's wrong with those three 'beaches'(intentionally misspelled)?

     I have to say wow! It was a really interesting read.

     Some parts I didn't understood crap (hey I'm not a fashionista) or know who she was talking about (well I'm not from the US) but the story was good and even though it was in the span of a few days there were so many things going on that in my mind it had gone longer.

     I really like Massi and how even though he was a Prince and people see them all perfect and such he wasn't exempt to gossip and to making mistakes.

     I also liked her friend (sorry not remembering here right now) the PR owner. She is such a bitch ^_^ Oh and the accidental scene with Rocco...mmmm...yeah...suddenly hot in here!

     I cannot wait to see what is next in store for this Manhattanites.

Rating: 5 Stars

     This was a really different kind of book. Yeah we had goddesses and we had demons but the story line was something new and refreshing for me. I loved the way the romance was built from beneath the ground up.

     There was always something unexpected around the corner. Some books are predictable for me but this one kept me guessing all along, from beginning to end. Also loved the different POV's, it kept the book interesting.

     I felt sorry for Blade but I got my heart happy where he's concerned by the end and I can't wait for his book! If there is a third book I'm already cheering for someone! ^_^

Cowgirl Up and Ride
by Lorelei James
Series: Rough Riders (#3)
Published by: Samhain Publishing

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Rating: 5 Stars

     In this third installment of the Lorelei James' Rough Riders series after being in love with Cord since a very young age Amy Joe Foster or AJ is determined now to win the heart of a man who has sworn off love after his first wife abandoned him and their child. She has prepared for a night in Cord's bed for years but she's still a virgin. I know how crazy is that! What she doesn't know is that the reality is SO much better than the fantasy.

     After fighting a loosing battle in which he wishes to still see AJ as a girl Cord has to come to the realization that the woman in his bed is very different from his first wife and has already stolen his heart without him even knowing it.

     This book has cement my believe that this series is going to be one of my favorite ones. Not just because I love cowboys, although to tell the truth I've never seen one in real life (lol), but because it gives you a variety of loves and stories that reach deep in your heart and just makes you wish you were one of the main characters.
