MY REVIEW

Aries by Gemma James
Novalee & Liam
WOW, WHAT AN OPENER
5 Stars

I can’t believe it!!! I can’t believe that Gemma James captured my wicked heart once again. This story is quick but mighty! It will leave you with so many emotions that you (well me) won’t know what to do with all of it!

Novalee is a queen… the Zodiac Queen and she’s being forced to marry, but she must only pick from the twelve suitors that are slated for her hand in marriage. She must spend 30 days (one month) with each one before they actually auction her off to one of them. Wow… just wow!! Who comes up with this shit? Gemma James, that’s who. Novalee is only 18 years old, but man oh man she’s something else. She has her innocence, but yet she’s snarky as all get out. She makes you laugh and weep for her. I can’t wait to see how she behaves with the other 11 brothers of the Zodiac.

Liam is her first suitor and wowza, this guy can spank me all day long. He’s firm yet kind and he knows what needs to be done to prepare Novalee for the next eleven months. Make no mistake, he wants her for his own, but he only gets a month with her so time is of the essence when it comes to training and showing his affection for her.

I am hooked and can’t wait to read the rest of these month long “get to know ya” encounters. Next up is Heath and holy hell, this guy is scary. I’m a little worried for Novalee on this one and I think Liam is too. Bring on the brut!!!

Blurb:
Twelve men. A virgin queen. One arranged marriage.

The first time I met the boys of the Zodiac Brotherhood, I was forced to my knees for the introduction. Still grieving the death of my parents, I was a child queen, a pawn in my uncle’s agenda for wealth and gain. As my guardian, he had the authority to arrange a marriage upon my eighteenth birthday.

That meeting took place six years ago.
Now those boys are powerful men.
Twelve virile men that want to own me.

And I must spend a month with each one.
Bending and yielding to their desires and commands.
Shedding pieces of my innocence so long as my virtue remains intact.

Because they want a virgin queen after the last month concludes, and my uncle plans to auction me off to the highest bidder.

Out of the twelve men, only one has my heart.
And only one can claim my hand in marriage.
If only it were up to me to decide.

#Review – #TheCowboyAndHisBaby by @JessicaClare

Description

MY REVIEW

The Cowboy and His Baby by Jessica Clare
Dustin & Annie
ADORABLE AND FUNNY
4 Stars
What an adorable and completely comical tale of two worlds colliding.  I’ve read my fair share of Jessica Clare books and this one was pretty good!Dustin is the cowboy or I guess the Rancher. At first he kind of seems like a drifter, but getting to know him better throughout the story proves otherwise…. and, well, he’s pretty damn hot!!

Annie is a dog trainer or I guess an animal trainer and she’s in Painted Barrel, Wyoming (town population two handfuls) to assist in the making of a movie. She and her pup Spidey can’t help but be drawn to the sweet talking, sexy cowboy.

The supporting character cast is not huge but consist of friends and family on both sides that seemed to genuinely want to support their people.  There is sort of a villain so beware your hackles will go up a few times, I know mine did.

Well to wrap this up I did enjoy my time with Dustin and Annie.  I actually read the book this time and not the ebook and it’s roughly about 280 pages long.  I am looking forward to the next book in the series which I didn’t really know this was a series… maybe it’s new… anyways… the next up is Jason’s book and as of this moment it’s entitled The Cowboy Under the Mistletoe.  It actually looks like it might be a little bit more angsty and this one.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

This is a pen name for Jill Myles.

Jill Myles has been an incurable romantic since childhood. She reads all the ‘naughty parts’ of books first, looks for a dirty joke in just about everything, and thinks to this day that the Little House on the Prairie books should have been steamier.

After devouring hundreds of paperback romances, mythology books, and archaeological tomes, she decided to write a few books of her own – stories with a wild adventure, sharp banter, and lots of super-sexy situations. She prefers her heroes alpha and half-dressed, her heroines witty, and she loves nothing more than watching them overcome adversity to fall into bed together.

Wallflowers: Three of a Kind by C.P. Smith
Devin & Calla
WORTH LYIN’, STEALIN’, OR KILLIN’ FOR
5 Stars because 10 is not available

Oh. My. God. This book is amazing! A whole hearted “feel good” kind of book. I love the connection these three girls have. Calla, Poppy, and Sienna are the perfect combination of goofiness, hilarity, and love. When I set out on this journey I knew I’d be reading something a little different than my normal “romance novels” and holy freaking hell… this one pulled every emotion out of me over and over again. I am in love with these women. I need to find my fellow Wallflowers and form my own posse!

Calla Armstrong is such a refreshing character. She’s innocent, but still wise to the world and its craziness. I love the fact that she grew up in a fairly ordinary life despite being raised by her fancy free Aunts. Those crazy Aunts of hers kept her grounded and focused on what was truly important.. Family! Regardless of what they taught her, she still thinks that if she keeps her walls erected and people are at arm’s length, then she’ll never get hurt again. Oh boy does she have a rude awakening!

Devin Hawthorne is this uber hot and very sexy private detective who happens to move next-door to Calla. Wowza! The way CP writes her alphas is impeccable. I was instantaneously attracted to Devin. The way he grunts when he’s working out, the sound of his gravely voice and that huge 6’3” frame of his… Auoy Vey. SOLD! He’s moved to town to start his own PI Company and his friend already has a case for him.

The supporting character cast is pretty big in this one, but I’ll only mention a few… Poppy and Sienna are co-workers of Calla’s and seem to hit it off right away. They’re witty, loving, and fearless. I fear they are both suffering from some sort of heartbreak or heartache, but we’ll find out eventually as these are our other “Wallflowers” and will eventually get a book of their own.

Devin’s friends are pretty rock solid! Nate is his BF from College and owns the bar, Jacobs’ Ladder down the street. Good guy, but I think he’s going to be a hard nut to crack. Next up is Bo, a local Police Officer working with Devin on the current case. I love that he already has eyes for one of the Wallflowers (wink)!

Two people that MUST be mentioned are Calla’s Aunties, Bernice and Eunice. These women were shunned by their Father, but made a beautiful life for themselves and Calla. They run the “Frock You” upscale resale shop and are always around to hand out advice even if it’s not wanted! They are hysterical, entertaining, and good-hearted. Everyone needs Aunts like this in their life!

To sum this one up, Wallflowers can be put into so many categories. Romance, Suspense, Comedy, Contemporary, Action, and Erotica. Like I said before… So many feels… and those plot twist, eek! Once I started reading it I could not put it down. The characters are commanding and alluring. My life became consumed with their every move. The dialogue flows smoothly and feels very natural like a conversation you might have yourself. The tension starts instantly and continues throughout the entire tale. I loved it with my entire heart and can’t wait to see what else CP has in store for all these beautiful women!
