Book Review: Sin & Chocolate by K. F. Breene

Sin & Chocolate (Demigod of San Francisco, #1)

Some people are ordained for greatness… 

Those people usually have a lot of drama in their life. Drama I happily do without. I live in a forgotten corner of nowhere for a reason: there is safety in anonymity. I have enough problems just trying to get by. 

But when Kieran, a sinfully sexy demigod at the pinnacle of power, crashes into my life, suddenly my whole world is turned upside down. 

He’s harboring a deadly secret, one that could destroy all he holds dear. He thinks I’m the key to his salvation, and he wants me to help him claim vengeance.

He also wants me with a passion that burns my body from the inside out. 

To ignore him is impossible, but to give in to my desires, even for a night, would thrust me into danger I might not survive.

Remember what I said about drama? Now I’m in it up to my eyeballs, and I’m not sure if I should run...or fight.

                                    MY REVIEW:

Sin & Chocolate (Demigod of San Francisco, #1)Sin & Chocolate by K.F. Breene
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
So we start out in a funny situation with Lexie looking at a Burberry and knowing she can't afford it and there is a struggle with other women, which had me laugh out loud. Then she meets Kieran, a demigod, only she doesn't know he is. She knows nothing about him as he becomes a stalker. Lexie is a Ghost Whisperer but has powers she doesn't know about. She is taking care of 2 teenagers and they live poorly but Kieran can give her everything. Her and the kids don't trust him. Mordecai, is one of the teenagers, and is a shifter, who is very sick.Daisy is the other teenager that Lexie takes care of and seem street smart. This story is full of magic and non magic. I really enjoyed getting to know these characters and will continue on with the series. Lexie will do anything to keep the kids safe and you can see the love they all have for each other.

Book Review: Bombshell by Catherine Coulter

Bombshell (FBI Thriller, #17)

FBI Special Agent Griffin Hammersmith, last seen in Backfire, has been recruited by Dillon Savich to join his unit in Washington, D.C. Savich sees something special in Hammersmith, an almost preternatural instinct for tracking criminals.

While on his way to D.C., Hammersmith plans to visit his sister, Delsey, a student at Stanislaus School of Music in Maestro, Virginia. Before he arrives, he gets a phone call that Delsey was found naked, unconscious, and covered with blood after a wild party. The blood isn't hers—so who does it belong to? 

Meanwhile, back in D.C., Savich and Sherlock have their hands full when the grandson of former chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank is found murdered, every bone in his body broken, and frozen at the foot of the Lincoln Memorial. 

Was Savich right—is Griffin gifted with a unique ability to "see" how criminals think? And will he figure out who was behind the attempt on Delsey's life—before it's too late?

                                 MY REVIEW:

Bombshell (FBI Thriller, #17)Bombshell by Catherine Coulter
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Special Agent Griffin Hammersmith plans on visiting his sister while joining the FBI unit run by Dillon Savich. His sister, Delsey, is a music student, and while on the way there finds out she was found in her apartment, naked and unconscious. She had come from a party early because she wasn't feeling well.
While that is going on Savich and his wife Sherlock are investigating the death of the grandson of a former Chairman of a bank.
We also meet Anna, who is Delsey's best friend. She seemed to be acting weird at the hospital. Her emotions change in a blink of an eye.
The music professors also seem to be under suspsicion as we get to know them as well. I loved the chemistry between Anna and Griffin and have a feeling we will see more of them in the next books in the series. This is #17 and it has been many years since I have picked up one of these books but once I got into reading it I started remembering everyone.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Such a great story of how someone can turn another person around and how a small town is there for each other. Madison arrives at The Sunshine Hideaway. Which is owned by her Aunt and Uncle. They have gone on a cruise and she was there to surprise them. She has decided that after 5 years of traveling that she wants to be here and make this her home. She wants to add Yoga and walks on trails to activities at the Hideaway. We do know from the beginning that her Aunt and Uncle plan on selling and her Aunt had a heart attack. But Dee and Connor are not to tell her. Connor grew up with a father who had never shown love and everything was work, work and work. Now Connor is in the same mindframe but Madison is trying to show him he needs time for fun.Madison has had a crush on him since she was 15 but he always made her feel like a nuisance. You can see that he has feelings but he doesn't want to. She keeps working her way into his life and showing him there is more to just working.

Book Review: Alex Cross, Run by James Patterson

Alex Cross, Run (Alex Cross, #20)

Kill Alex Cross was "Patterson at the top of his game" (Washington Post). Alex Cross, Run is even better. DON'T LOOK, ALEX CROSS Top plastic surgeon Elijah Creem is renowned for his skills in the operating room, and for his wild, no-expense-spared "industry parties," bringing in underage exotic dancers and models for nights of drugs, champagne, and uninhibited sex. That is, until Detective Alex Cross busts one of Creem's lavish soirees and ruins his fun. Now Creem is willing to do anything to avoid going to jail. DON'T THINK, ALEX CROSS But Alex doesn't have time to dwell on that case. A beautiful woman has been found murdered in her car, a lock of her hair viciously ripped off. Then a second woman is found hanging from a sixth-floor window with a brutal scar slashed across her stomach. When a third mutilated body is discovered, rumors of three serial killers on the loose send Washington D.C. into an all-out frenzy. JUST RUN Alex is under so much pressure to solve these three grim cases that he hasn't noticed that someone else investigating him-someone so obsessed and so twisted that they'll do anything-ANYTHING- to get the vengeance they require. Alex Cross, Run is James Patterson's most unrelenting story yet-a white-hot, sensational thrill ride with the most extreme and gripping characters Patterson has ever brought to life. 

                                   MY REVIEW:

Alex Cross, Run (Alex Cross, #20)Alex Cross, Run by James Patterson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Alex Cross had taken down Top Plastic Surgeon Elijah Creem for his wild parties and ruins his life. But Elijah is not done and what he does next will make you shudder. There are several men and women, including teenagers found murdered. So now the police think 3 serial killers on the loose. Meantime Alex and his family had taken in a young girl in the foster program. But she is starting to act out. Also someone is out for revenge on Alex and has a blog making him look like a bad cop, All of this going on in 1 book made this a very interesting read and very hard to put down. Even though there are 400 pages, the font is a good size and the chapters are short so you feel like you are moving right along at a good pace. I love this series and am continuing on with it.

Blog Tour review: The Bones She Buried by Lisa Regan

Title:                  The Bones She Buried  

Author:     Lisa Regan  

Publication Day: 27/03/2019

Buy Links :

Josie works until her arms ache, until the paramedics arrive and pull her gently away from the woman’s cold, fragile body. Noah’s voice cracks beside her as he calls the time of death for his own, beloved mother.

Arriving with her partner Noah for dinner at his family’s immaculate countryside home, Detective Josie Quinn is devastated to find Noah’s mother, Colette, lying lifeless in the back garden, her mouth clogged with soil.

Searching the house for answers, Josie’s team don’t know what to make of the rosary beads buried in the dirt near the body, or the hidden file labelled “Drew Pratt”, the small town of Denton’s most famous missing person.

As she delves deeper into Pratt’s case, Josie quickly discovers he had a brother whose body mysteriously washed up on the banks of a river. There’s also a diary entry suggesting that Colette may have met him on the last day he was seen alive. Can Josie believe the unthinkable, that a kind old soul like Colette might have been involved in their murders? And, will Josie’s new relationship with Noah survive the accusation?

Josie’s only hope lies in tracking down Pratt’s daughter. But when she arrives at her home to find she’s been murdered just minutes before, Josie knows the real killer is one step ahead and won’t stop until Colette’s secret is buried forever. With many more innocent lives on the line, how deep is Josie prepared dig to reach the truth?

An absolutely unputdownable crime thriller that will have you up all night! If you love Angela Marsons, Robert Dugoni or Rachel Caine you’re guaranteed to be hooked from page one.


My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This book had so much going on but I could keep up with it. It starts out with the death of Colette. She is the mother of Detective Quinn's boyfriend. Things go all wrong after that. Josie finds something in Colette's house which turns her into full detective mode and starts enquiries into missing people and things from a long time ago. But it also put Josie's and Noah's relationship on hold and it is strained to the max. Then Noah's sister is mean to Josie and treating her like a pariah and Noah as a child. I really liked how Josie and her team worked together even if they didn't always agree with her but they still respected each other. AT first I did not like their boss Chitwood. But then I realized his bark was much worse than his bite. The only person I did not like was Laura, Noah's sister. I am not sure if it was her real personality or her pregnancy hormones making her into a witch. I also wasn't always happy with the way Hoah treated Josie but then again I think it was mostly his grief talking.

Book Review: Hard Loving Cowboy by A.J. Pine

Hard Loving Cowboy (Crossroads Ranch, #3)

This cowboy's handsome, sexy, and definitely off limits . . .

Walker Everett spends his days at the Crossroads Ranch wrangling cattle-and steering clear of anything that would complicate his already too-complicated life. Until Violet Chastain, the ranch's newest employee, asks him to pretend to be her boyfriend for her parents' anniversary party. She's the most beautiful woman he's ever met and needs his help. How can he refuse?

Violet isn't about to fall for a brooding bad-boy cowboy, no matter how sizzling their chemistry. But she also never expected Walker to go along with the charade. Before long, he's charming her parents at their weekly dinners and kissing her way more than necessary. Spending so much time together tests the limits of their "just friends" relationship, but what happens when their game of pretend becomes all too real?

Includes the bonus story Rocky Mountain Cowboy by Sara Richardson!

Hard Loving Cowboy (Crossroads Ranch, #3)Hard Loving Cowboy by A.J. Pine
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is the last book of this series and we got to know the youngest brother in this book. Walker starts out in a bar being thrown out of a window or fell out.

Now that he is out, he also can not be in a relationship for 6 months. Then he meets Violet. Now Walker has never been a settle down type of guy. More of a one night stand type of guy. But Violet throws him for a loop. She is hired to work on his families winery and she becomes friends with his family. There is also the wedding coming up of Jake that is from the first book of this series.
Violet has Walker stand in as a boyfriend with her parents. But he has not told her he is an alcoholic and about his past. Will things stay between them once she finds out?

Exclusive Excerpt:

My happy puppy greets me as soon as I slip inside the house, the air conditioning a welcome reprieve from the heat outside. I bend down and give her a quick pet behind the ears before leading her to the back door. She runs off, anxious to do her business, while I head back inside to take a quick shower.

I don’t wash my hair, but shave and exfoliate all of the important areas. When I’m smooth and clean, I jump out of the shower, anxious to head over to Latham’s. I smother lotion over every square inch of my body, the rich scents of jasmine and vanilla wrapping around me. I touch up my makeup, darkening my eyes in that sultry way I used to do daily, but now save for special occasions.

Then, I head for my dresser. I already know which one I want. After spending a few minutes with Adrian and feeling the anticipation she was experiencing, I dig out my own black bustier and matching thong set. Mine is an older style, though, with deep red piping and a black lace overlay. Carefully, I snap the back and glance in the mirror. It dips dangerously low, showcasing my cleavage and pushing my breasts together magnificently. The lace thong is sexy, enticing, and bold. Perfect.

I snap the garter belt into place and roll on a pair of stockings. Then, I return to my closet and find my dark blue sundress. It’s shorter than the others and will barely hide the stockings that hit just above mid-thigh. It too will be perfect. Keeping my hair up, I retwist it into a knot, letting only a few tendrils of hair hang around my face.

Taking one last look in the mirror, I slip on my too-high strappy sandals, swipe dark gloss over my lips, and head out of my room. I make a quick pit stop at the back door and call Snuggles. She’s not too happy to be coming in from outside, but when I produce a treat from the cabinet, she hightails it out of her doghouse and trots up the back steps like her tail is on fire. It wags furiously as she sits like a good girl and shakes for her treat. After a few more minutes of showering her with affection, I fill her food and water bowls, and make sure she’s settled for the evening.

Then, I head back to my car.

It’s only a few blocks from downtown where my business is, and even though I try to keep the windows open to enjoy the early evening breeze, it’s just too hot outside, or maybe I’m a little too nervous. Too sweaty. So I roll up the windows and crank on the air. As soon as I do, I hear a poof sound, and it’s suddenly raining.

Not liquid, though.

This is sparkly particles of hell flying through the air and landing everywhere.



So. Much. Glitter.

I stop at the stop sign, spitting the sliver sparkles from my mouth and glance around. My entire car is covered in it. My dress. My arms. My face.

Dirty rotten bastard, son of the devil asshole jerk!

He’s. So. Fucking. Dead.

Book review: Tough Luck Cowboy by A.J. Pine

Tough Luck Cowboy (Crossroads Ranch, #2)

The only girl he ever wanted was the one he could never have.

What's the saying, bad luck comes in threes? If so, Lily Green is due for something good. First, her divorce is finalized—on her birthday, no less. Then the first job she lands for her catering company turns out to be for her ex-husband's wedding. To top it off, she's stuck working the event with Luke Everett, the sexy-as-hell best man who's never been able to stand her. When can a girl catch a break?

For years, Luke has kept his feelings for Lily safely hidden. Hitting on his best friend's ex-wife would definitely break the cowboy code of honor. But ever since an injury sidelined his rodeo riding, the two of them keep getting thrown together. It's only a matter of time until his true feelings come to light. When that happens, it will either be the biggest mistake of his life, or a sign that his luck is about to change.

Tough Luck Cowboy (Crossroads Ranch, #2)Tough Luck Cowboy by A.J. Pine
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Lily Green has not had a great day. Her divorce was finalized on her birthday and then she accepts a catering job for her ex and his fiance. Then she also will be seeing her ex's best friend who she has had an oil and water relationship from the beginning. Luke got hurt in the rodeo and was told that if he gets hurt again with another concussion he may not be the same. Severe brain damage could happen. So while he is resting up , him and Lily keep getting thrown together. We find out about the night he met Lily and his feelings for her since. We also find out what kind of person Lily is and how she runs from complications. The one thing she can't understand is why Luke wants to do the next rodeo before he retires no matter if he gets hurt because he doesn't intend to get hurt. We also read more about his brother Jake from the first book of the series and his other brother Walker. I enjoyed getting to know more of Luke and meeting Lily in this book.

Finn O’Loughlin is the strong silent type, and as Rockport’s chief of police he’s also the town’s most eligible bachelor. But the last thing he’s interested in is a relationship. But the last thing he’s interested in is a relationship. That is until he hooks up with an enigmatic blonde in the bathroom of his family’s pub.

Desperate to keep all of this from becoming town gossip, Finn tries to protect his new girlfriend by hiding all of the drama he’s dealing with. Unbeknownst to him though, she’s dealing with problems of her own in the form of a sleazy new boss who doesn’t take no for an answer.

What happens when outside forces trying to pull them apart, collide? Will Finn be able to hold onto this new-found happiness with the first woman to ever captivate him. Or will past regrets and new dangers threaten their happiness?

Catch Up on the Series:


Exclusive Excerpt:

I look up at the clock for what feels like the millionth time. It’s after nine and Finn still isn’t here, the bar is beginning to fill with costume-clad people and I wonder if I’ve made a mistake pushing the fact that I wanted Finn to wear a costume, let alone join me at the party. But it isn’t such an extreme request surely; it’s a party for his brother and future sister-in-law.

I tug at my costume as it rides up a little, cutting into my hips and making it slightly uncomfortable.

“He doesn’t really like parties. You’ll get used to it,” a voice says from behind me.

When I turn around Kelsey is standing there with a small smile on her face, but it’s just for show. It’s almost like she’s trying to reassure me that it isn’t my fault Finn has yet to show up.

Part of me assumed he’d use work as an excuse to avoid tonight. But another part of me, the one that likes to think Finn and I have something, needs him to show up. To show me that he enjoys spending time with me despite his hatred of costumes and crowds. That he wants to be with me regardless.

“Seriously…” Kelsey says but stops short and I see her eyes widen, and when I hear Beck yell out, “You’ve got to be fucking kidding me?” my eyes instantly gravitate toward the entrance to the bar.

I see him, standing, scanning the crowd, searching for someone, searching for me. In that moment my heart stops and everything around me falls silent.

I feel his eyes on me, his smile grows as he takes me in and all I can focus on is him walking over to where I’m standing. Navigating the crowded room and ignoring the comments and the women who attempt to stop him.

“That boy loves you,” Kelsey says, her mouth close to my ear. “Look at his face!”

“What?” I ask, appalled by her reaction to Finn’s arrival.

“Don’t act like you don’t know,” she says, giving my side a little pinch before she bails, leaving me speechless.

He loves me? I think as Finn finally stops in front of me, his smile even broader than before. He can’t possibly love me or could he?


About the Author:

Not only is Claire Raye a really sweet pen name, it’s actually a pen name for two sarcastic best friends who met through their mutual love of reading. After bonding over books (and wine and cheese), they decided to take the plunge and see if they could write a book together and ta dah... The Rockport Beach Series was born! In addition to their shared love of food and dropping an occasional (read, a lot of) f bombs, the writing duo that is Claire Raye like to write about strong, sassy females who aren’t afraid to say what’s on their mind and the overprotective men who fall in love with them. While Claire Raye’s resting bitch face might be strong, she always makes sure her alpha males are stronger!

Writing The Rockport Beach Series has been so much fun, even if Book two needed a shared vacation, a stolen bottle of champagne and far too much vodka and POG to get it back on track! Both halves of Claire Raye are married and both of her husbands have a cheeky side that gets plenty of airtime in her books. From their smart mouths to their witty one-liners, there’s plenty of material to use for all those alpha males she loves to write about.

While Claire Raye isn’t sure she’ll ever reveal who she really is - there’s just something about your co-workers knowing you write erotic love scenes that makes having a pen name that much easier – she’s definitely going to keep on writing. Plans are already underway for the next series, which is sure to feature plenty of sass, steam and humor, and of course, a happily ever after!
