I had a few firsts here – first time reading this author; first time reading about an agoraphobic; first time reading about an amputee with this level of imagery. I’m a very happy reader after Jen Frederick’s story. This is the 3rd book in this series and I have no clue what the previous 2 were like, but I can tell you I don’t really care, because I didn’t miss a thing reading this story. I’m not going to say that this was a perfect story, but it was darn good. [Read more…]
The HORNET series is one of my recent favorite military/romantic suspense series of late. The last book, Honor Reclaimed, tore my heart out. These guys might all be alpha to the core, but they are all faced with being limited in some way and how they deal with it. While the action was plenty here, I found the romance a little on the weak side. While it is not completely necessary, I do suggest reading the first 2 books in the series prior to this story.

If you enjoy a strong heroine who can hold her own, Kelly Wachowski is that. The hero, Noah Kukailimoku, has his own set of strong attributes that make him just as likeable, but it was Kelly who kept me interested. Caitlyn O’Leary’s new series about a group of ‘Found’ starts off with an enjoyable story. The premise of these ‘Found’ starts with much intrigue – where are they from? What are they here for? That kind of thing and so far guys, it’s pretty interesting. [Read more…]
Tessa Bailey is back with her dirty talking alpha heroes! This time she pulls in several characters from previous books (Ruby and Troy from His Risk to Take and Derek from Protecting What’s His) and pushes this first book in a new series into a really interesting direction.
Seraphina Newsome is on a mission. The ER nurse turned cop is attempting to avenge her brother’s death by going undercover as a bar waitress for a crime lord in order to obtain incriminating evidence in the form of a ledger. Sera, as a rookie cop, has the deck stacked against her going into the unsanctioned operation with no support, but she just can’t let the man who killed her brother get off so easy. [Read more…]
OK, I’ll admit I stepped a little outside of my genre comfort zone with this one, but with all of the hoopla surrounding the movie and the urging of several co-workers, I decided to give it a go. The result? It’s somewhat of a mixed bag. The book was engaging and kept me guessing until the very last page. I had no idea who the “bad guy” was and I had no idea how it would all play out. I didn’t want to put it down. But I didn’t like the ending and ultimately, I found that there was not a single character worthy of redemption in the end. That’s a pretty tough pill for me to swallow.
