Rating: 4 Stars

     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!!

Review: Club Shadowlands by Cherise Sinclair

Club Shadowlands

Series: Masters of the Shadowlands (#1)

Genre: Contemporary Romance, BDSM
Format: eBook

Rating: 5 Stars

     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.

Review: Rough, Raw, and Ready by Lorelei James

Rating: 5 Stars

     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.

Review: Never Seduce a Scot by Maya Banks

     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!
