Book review: The Last True Cowboy by Laura Drake

The Last True Cowboy (Chestnut Creek, #1)




This cowboy's got one last chance to prove himself.

Carly Beauchamp has loved cowboy Austin Davis since first grade. Ask anyone in their dusty, backwater New Mexico town of Unforgiven, and they'll say "Carly and Austin" the way some say "big trucks and country boys." But after years of waiting for a wedding ring, Carly's done with being a rodeo widow . . .

Austin never meant to put his career on the circuit before Carly. She's always been his future, his one and only. But now that she's moved on, he's beginning to see where he went wrong, and he'll do anything to win her back. The only thing is, Carly's suddenly acting differently, and she's definitely hiding a secret-one that will test the depth of their love and open up a whole new world of possibilities.


                        MY REVIEW:



Carly and Austin have been best friends since they were little kids and been dating and in love since teenagers. They, along with everyone else think they are the perfect couple and will end up married.
Austin is on the rodeo circuit and keeps putting that first instead of Carly. After several years of his promising that he will come home for good and settle down, she gets fed up with the empty promises and calls it off for good.
She is heartbroken and determined to move on. So she goes to another town and gets drunk, and has a one night stand with a stranger. Now she is back home and wanting to turn her life into something she wants to do.
Austin runs into her and notices that something is off and she tells him she has changed. But the love is still there.
Austin has decided at 29 that he needs to go back home for good and settle down but Carly just wants to be friends.
A few things have changed and after confessing to Austin he gets mad and takes awhile for him to come back around to be friends again.
I loved the characters in this story and Carly was raised by her grandparents and they are always there for her no matter what.

Book Review: The Highland Earl by Amy Jarecki

The Highland Earl (Lords of the Highlands, #6)



With two young sons to care for and a large estate to run, John Erskine, the widowed Earl of Mar, needs to remarry as quickly as possible. And beautiful Lady Evelyn Pierrepont would be the perfect match. But there's more behind the English lass's calm demeanor than she's letting on, including a smoldering allure not even John can ignore.

Evelyn has no desire to wed the rugged Scottish earl, but at least she'll be able to continue her work as a spy-as long as her husband never finds out. Yet the more time Evelyn spends with John and his boys, the fonder she grows of their little family, and the last thing she wants to do is put them in danger. As alliances shift and enemies draw closer, soon everything they hold dear is at risk: their lands, their love, and their very lives.



                              MY REVIEW:



My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The Earl of Mar, John Erskine, is a widowed and wants to marry again so he has a wife to help him raise his sons. He meets Lady Evelyn Pierrepont and thinks she would make a perfect match. Her dad agrees to the marriage but Evelyn is not happy about it. Her dad didn't ask her for her opinion and she knows the reputation that the Earl has.
Evelyn is a spy and working with Dubois to help plot against the Queen and get the real person she feels should be on the throne. so for awhile she had been spying on her father and now on her husband. Only he finds out and they also end up on the run. He blames her for everything and she finds out that John is not the person she thought he was either.
Evelyn was used to her father who treated his staff horribly. She thinks John is the same way and finds out that he is a very generous person and shares his wealth. and helps out those in need.
This is the latest book in the series and one I greatly enjoyed reading.

Blog Tour: Quiet Man by Kristen Ashley






From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kristen Ashley comes a new story in her Dream Man series… 

Charlotte “Lottie” McAlister is in the zone. She’s ready to take on the next chapter of her life, and since she doesn’t have a man, she’ll do what she’s done all along. She’ll take care of business on her own. Even if that business means starting a family. 

The problem is, Lottie has a stalker. The really bad kind. The kind that means she needs a bodyguard. 

Enter Mo Morrison. 

Enormous. Scary. 

Quiet. 

Mo doesn’t say much, and Lottie’s used to getting attention. And she wants Mo’s attention. Badly. 

But Mo has a strict rule. If he’s guarding your body, that’s all he’s doing with it. 

However, the longer Mo has to keep Lottie safe, the faster he falls for the beautiful blonde who has it so together, she might even be able to tackle the demons he’s got in his head that just won’t die. 

But in the end, Lottie and Mo don’t only have to find some way to keep hands off until the threat is over, they have to negotiate the overprotective Hot Bunch, Lottie’s crazy stepdad, Tex, Mo’s crew of frat-boy commandos, not to mention his nutty sisters. 

All before Lottie finally gets her Dream Man. 

And Mo can lay claim to his Dream Girl. 

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you'll enjoy each one as much as we do.**









EXCERPT:

I unlocked and opened my door.
Then I immediately, and automatically, took a step back.
All right.
Whoa.
I could get a hint from the chest and what it might be attached to with what I’d seen of that throat, but this guy had to be six five, maybe taller.
And his height was only a part of why Smithie described him the way he did.
He wasn’t “motherfucking huge.”
He was motherfucking huge.
I was average height.
But slender.
My sister had ass.
My job was physical. It wasn’t just the nightly dancing. It was the practice and constantly choreographing and adding new routines. I could probably eat a boatload, but I didn’t because I was too busy to eat, and when I did, I’d learned long ago what all the experts said was what an expert would know from studying it. Eating good food gave me more energy, made me sleep better and put me in a better mood (most of the time).
So unless the occasion was special, I put good food in my mouth and didn’t drink much outside water, flavored water, sparkling water, with the odd antioxidant vitamin drink thrown in.
So yeah, I was slender.
And two of me could make this guy.
Maybe three.
He moved forward.
I moved back.
His movements were unwieldy. Not clumsy—heavy and plodding.
It didn’t matter this guy was a bull in a china shop.
He’d terrify small children.
Hell, he’d terrify grown men.
And that had nothing to do with the gun worn openly on his hip.
It had to do with what that compression shirt barely contained, not to mention the carved protrusion of the muscles of his biceps exposed by the short sleeves, the sinewy, richly veined lengths of his forearms and the trunks of his long legs covered in dark gray commando pants.
He shut the door behind him, twisted at the waist and I heard the lock click.
He twisted back to me.
“Hey,” I forced out.
He dipped his chin.
“You’re Mo,” I stated unnecessarily.
“Yup,” he agreed.

MY REVIEW:

Quiet Man (Dream Man, #4.5)Quiet Man by Kristen Ashley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Lottie is the main stripper in the club she works for. Her boss makes sure his girls are always safe, But one day he gets a letter threatening Lottie. He hires a bodyguard , who ends up being Mo. He is a big man and not one to talk much. Lottie tries to get his attention but he just wants to guard her and has a strict rule of nothing else but guarding it. But as they get to know each other Mo falls for her but needs to stick to his rule. Meanwhile Lottie has "family" that they don't want to know what is going on because all hell will break loose.
I was on Mo's side with not much caring about how women strip for money especially when married and/or having kids. But I loved the characters in this book and watching Mo and Lottie's relationship grow. This is my first book by this author and want to read more of this series.




About the author

Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA and nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorize and she hadn’t taken her first breath!). Her mother said they took Kristen away, put her Mom back in her room, her mother looked out the window, and Gary was on fire (Dr. King had been assassinated four days before). Kristen’s Mom remembered thinking it was the end of the world. Quite the dramatic beginning.
Nothing’s changed.
Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana and has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus, she’s blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her family was (is) loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write. They all lived together on a very small farm in a small farm town in the heartland. She grew up with Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).
Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.
And as she keeps growing, it keeps getting better.

Book Review: Don't Close Your Eyes by Christie Craig

Don't Close Your Eyes (Texas Justice #1)

What would you do if everything you thought was true about your family turned out to be a lie? 


Annie Lakes has had the same recurring nightmare for years. Her heart pounding in her chest. A panicked voice, begging her to run faster. Her own bloodcurdling scream. But now Annie is starting to realize it's more than just a bad dream. She's starting to remember things about the night her cousin Jenny disappeared all those years ago. Things that make her believe her family was involved--and what they're hiding is much worse than she ever imagined. But she can't unravel this alone. She needs someone she can trust, someone like sexy Detective Mark Sutton ....


Mark has seen enough--too much--to assume that Annie's story is a dead end. It turns out that her family is hiding some killer secrets. A long time ago, Annie was just an innocent little girl who saw something she shouldn't. Now she's a target, and Mark's running out of time to protect the woman he's starting to fall for. But how does Mark face off against a murderer who just may be someone Annie loves?

MY REVIEW:

Don't Close Your Eyes (Texas Justice #1)Don't Close Your Eyes by Christie Craig
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Annie has been having the same nightmare for years. She is being chased as a little girl and someone is telling her to run. Now she is starting to remember things of the night her cousin Jenny disappeared. But her family is lying and covering up for someone and her life is being threatened.
This was one of those books I was hooked from the first couple of pages and could not put it down. Detective Mark Sutton thinks at first she is crazy but then he starts believing her and things get complicated when they start a relationship together and he is like a dog with a bone and will not give up until he finds out what happened. No matter what his boss says.
I had been wanting to read this so bad and I finally got a copy from the publisher and had to start it right away. Thank you to Forever for the copy.

Book Review: Change of Heart by Judith Keim

Change of Heart: A Seashell Cottage Book

Emerson “Em” Jordan always wanted a Valentine’s Day wedding. But after being dumped by her boyfriend, she spends the holiday at Seashell Cottage on the Gulf Coast of Florida with Devin Gerard, a family friend who has no interest in her or any other woman and is instead concentrating on his pediatric medical practice and continuing medical missions in Costa Rica. 

Em, who’s always wanted a large family, doesn’t mind his disinterest. At thirty-two, she’s decided she doesn’t need a husband to have a child or to adopt one. First, she’s going to fulfill her dream of setting up her own landscape design business in upstate New York and has promised to continue to help run her grandmother’s flower shop. 

It isn’t until Em and Devin become friends that Em realizes she might want more than friendship from him. But with his work in Miami and Costa Rica and her busy life in New York, it’s out of the question until something happens that changes everything, even a couple of hearts.

Change of Heart: A Seashell Cottage BookChange of Heart: A Seashell Cottage Book by Judith Keim
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Em got dumped by her boyfriend, who she wanted to marry and always wanted a Valentine's wedding. She decides to go to Seashell Cottage in Florida to get away. She had planned on going with a friend but the friend dropped some news to her and that got changed. Em's sister said she had a friend that was the best man in her wedding and he is looking for a vacation also and not interested in any strings.
Em has decided if she wants a family then she will have to just adopt because she is 32 and things are not looking great for a man in her life. She also wants to be a landscape designer so while in Florida she does a lot of investigating of plants.
Dev is a pediatrician and travels between his office and Costa Rica. They do spend quite a bit of time together while at the cottage.
But once they leave for their separate lives they end up being friends and chatting a lot on the phone.
She lives in NY and he is in Florida but they seem to becoming close.
I loved how these 2 came to be friends and their phone calls and how he looked out for her. She is also very close to her family and they are always there for each other.
Thank you to Judith Keim and NetGalley for sending this to me for review.

Excerpt: 

He picked up the paper, turned it over and read it again.
It stated, plainly, he was fucked.
More alarmingly, it stated, chillingly, Mac was in danger.
This was a problem more than it was already a colossal motherfucking problem.
Any other one of his girls, he’d pick up the phone to Lee Nightingale, the man behind Nightingale Investigations, the commander of the baddest badass motherfuckers in Denver. He’d hand over this letter and he’d get this problem solved.
But Mac was Charlotte McAlister, Jet McAlister Chavez’s little sister. Jet was married to Eddie Chavez. Eddie was Lee’s best friend. And Jet worked for Indy, Lee’s wife, the Queen of the Rock Chicks, and thus Jet Chavez was a bona fide Rock Chick.
Mac might not be a card-carrying member of the Rock Chicks, mostly because she had a job where she worked nights, the time those crazy bitches instigated the most fucked-up of their varying antics. Though they weren’t averse to mornings and afternoons. It was just that the stun-gunnings, kidnappings and the like mostly took place at night, and Mac was busy then.
She was still a Rock Chick, or at least she was by association.
Considering the Rock Chick link and the blood ties to Jet, if Lee knew Mac was in danger, he’d tear the town apart to put a stop to it.
And Eddie…
Now Eddie, Smithie didn’t even want to think about it. The man was a cop. The shit Lee and his boys did with flair and a flagrant disregard to just about anything, Eddie could not do.
But Eddie wouldn’t blink at doing whatever he had to do to make his sister-in-law safe.
And the man had mouths to feed.
So yeah.
This was a problem even more than it already was a colossal motherfucking problem because Smithie couldn’t call Lee.
Which meant Smithie had to find a different set of badasses to deal with it.
His first call would normally be the Chaos Motorcycle Club. Mac wasn’t one of theirs, neither was Smithie, but they had ties to Lee, they could keep a secret, and they didn’t dick around when it came to women and their safety.
But they’d just come out of a war, and like any war, that had been some serious fucked-up shit.
They needed a breather.
Lee, and Chaos, also had ties to…
“Well, hell,” Smithie muttered, the words on the letter blurring, the sick feeling in the back of his throat easing.
He dropped the letter and picked up his cell.
If you couldn’t call a badass…
Then it was far from second best to call a commando.

Book Review: Three Little Words by Jenny Holiday

Three Little Words (Bridesmaids Behaving Badly #3)



 Gia Gallo is officially in bridesmaid hell. Stranded in New York with her best friend's wedding dress, Gia has six days to make it to Florida in time for the ceremony. And oh-so-charming best man Bennett Buchanan has taken the last available rental car. Looks like she's in for one long road trip with the sexiest - and most irritating - Southern gentleman she's ever met...

Bennett's pretty sure that if there was ever a woman to break his "no flings" rule, Gia would be it. Sure, she's stubborn. She's also funny, smart, and the attraction between them is getting hotter with every state line they cross. While Bennett doesn't do casual, Gia doesn't do "relationships." But if they break the rules, this unlikely pair might discover that their impromptu road trip could turn out to be the best ride of their lives.

MY REVIEW:


My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is the 3rd book of the series and they have all been good. I really enjoyed this one and read it in 1 day.
Gia is a model and doesn't believe in relationships. She has one night stands and moves on.
Bennett is the kind of guy who wants a relationship and doesn't believe in one night stands,
These 2 are in Noah and Wendy's wedding. They also are flying out of the same airport to get to Florida but the flights are cancelled because of a snowstorm so they end up renting a car together and getting to know each other. He is interested in her but not as a one night stand. She wants to get it on with him but he isn't giving her what she wants. They end up talking a lot and learning a lot of things about each other. By the time they get to Florida Noah tells his best friend he is in love with Gia. But when Gia finds out she runs.
These 2 have been there for each other all through this road trip and helping each other with their problems. But Gia does not want to get to close to Bennett.
I received this book from Forever and NetGalley for an honest review.

Book Review: Wanted In Paradise by Kate Ashenden

Wanted in Paradise

He's the hot Italian superstar, adored by millions.
She's the one that got away...

When Romeo Moretti, the most charismatic man Jasmine Hartwell has ever met, offers her a dream job, she hopes it will be a release from her nightmares.

She can't run from the survivor's guilt she carries after a deadly typhoon, but perhaps Romeo's offer will be the perfect distraction? 

However, these two have a history, a mutual desire and deep love that they never dared to explore.

The sexual tension between them only increases as the days pass. Problems escalate when a billionaire Sheikh, who is also Romeo's enemy, begins vying for Jasmine's attention.

Now the men are not only warring over their different agendas but also their yearning for Jasmine.

With tough decisions to be made and dangerous obstacles to overcome, how can Jasmine and Romeo find a way to be together?

Saying no to their love would be a tragedy, but saying yes could cost them their lives…

A steamy and adventurous story of forbidden love. Guaranteed HEA. No cliffhanger.

                            MY REVIEW:

Wanted in ParadiseWanted in Paradise by Kate Ashenden
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Romeo is a superstar and Jasmine just walked away from her job. These 2 have a history together. As they meet up again you can see the chemistry between them. Many years ago Jasmine had dated his brother but his brother didn't treat her right and one night Romeo and Jasmine had kissed. Then they didn't see each other again. Now years later he hires her to help out at a concert that is a fundraiser. But his manager does not like her and is very mean to her.
Meanwhile Romeo's brother had gone missing and everyone thinks he is dead. So Romeo doesn't want anything to happen with Jasmine because he feels it would be a betrayal to his brother.
A sheikh also shows up who is enamored with Jasmine but Romeo doesn't trust him and wars Jasmine away from him. Will Jasmine stay away from the sheikh or try to convince Romeo that they the belong together.
This book was so much fun to read and I enjoyed the writing.

Blog Tour: Accidental Lies by Dana Mason






Accidental Lies by Dana Mason 
Amazon: https://amzn.to/2yHv4wp

A blissful week on the beautiful island of Maui is exactly what I need…
I haven’t got away in years.
Not since the tragedy that’s overshadowed my life.
Not since my heart cracked into two.
But when I finally take the plunge, what happens?
I get locked out of my hotel room.

The first person I lay eyes on is a golden-eyed guy who’s all kinds of rugged.
Rugged in a dirty-sex kind of way.
The best kind.
Chocolate-brown hair, sun-kissed skin, a sexy dimpled smile.
A built body that I want to run my hands all over.
And that takes me by surprise.
He’s the first man that’s caught my eye in a long, long time.
I’ve never been able to get past the pain that haunts me.
But this man makes me think I might be able to forget.

Four cocktails later, our chemistry is hotter than the Hawaiian sun.
We’re pressed against each other in an elevator.
Soaking wet after being caught in a tropical storm.
I’m moaning in his arms, hands fisting his hair.
Then we spend the rest of our vacation unwinding and undressing…

We have just two rules:
No talking about our lives back home, and this is just a fling.
That means I can’t tell him about the heartbreak I fight every single day.
I can’t reveal my secret.
But when the sun sets on our trip, can we bring ourselves to say goodbye?
I have a feeling he’ll be tempted to break the rules.
The question is, after years of shielding my heart, will I be able to let him in?
And even if I do, will I want him when I find out who he really is?

This is a full-length, standalone romance with some hot-under-the-collar action, no cheating and a guaranteed HEA. For fans of R.S Grey, Whitney G. and Vi Keeland,Accidental Lies features a hot AF alpha and a sizzling will-they-won’t-they love story that will have you totally addicted!


MY REVIEW:


My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I loved this book. At first I wasn't sure about the lying and keeping things from each other but then again it was supposed to be just a few days fling while on vacation. Neither one were in relationships and they had agreed no personal info. So there wasn't anyone to hurt except for themselves. Emily is a lawyer and the one thing she learned from her husband's death was life is short so don't wait until the timing is right for things to do.
I didn't like that once they found each other and the feelings were real then they should have come right out and tell how their spouses died and Drew should have just blurted out I have 2 children. I do get where they were coming from and each had their reasons and Drew did TRY to come clean but I really did enjoy getting to know these 2 and their lives.
Thank you to Bookouture and NetGalley for the ARC for an honest review.
