:Twisted Up" by Erin Nicholas





This book tells the story of Avery and Jake and they are kinda high school sweethearts.  Let me start by saying that this is a sweet book and Avery was a good heroine.  She did not have a good upbringing, but that did not stop her from becoming the town fire chief.  Jake is the town golden boy who comes to town for their 10 year high school reunion.  I did not enjoy this book at all.  The romance aspect was not there and I did not feel the chemistry between Avery and Jake.  All there was between these was bickering and sex.  To add insult to injury, the sex scenes were not all that great. They both misunderstood each other's feelings and in the middle of the story, it is revealed that Avery's issue is not with Jake, but with his parents.  I could have done without that little element.  I wanted to read about their relationship and how they were able to become the people that they were.  The dialogue was bland and Avery kept saying, "oh boy that's not good" and it really irked me.  Finally, the hugest part that did not sit well with me....the point of view of the characters.  I really dislike reading stories in third person because it really make it feel wordy and too much monologue.  In  all honesty, this book was just not for me.  The grammar was great and the writing was great as well, but the dialogue needs major work.  If you like soft romance and heartfelt situations during natural disasters, then this book is for you.

Cowboy Up by Harper Sloan

Author:  Harper Sloan
Release date: December 19, 2017  


This is my first review in 2018 and I must say that it started on a sweet note. Cowboy Up is the third installment in the Coming home series and it follows Clayton, the third and eldest sibling to Quinn and Maverick.  We get small doses of Clayton throughout the series and I was intrigued with his character, so I jumped out of my boots when this book was released.  Clayton is portrayed as the head of the family, loves to maintain control, and broody, but here comes timid Caroline and she makes him lose all of his control.  When poor Caroline falls on hard times, Clayton and his large…cowboy boots comes to the rescue and one of the most sappiest couples that I have ever seen or read happens and flourish.
Now I absolutely loved Clayton and his cowboy mannerisms and he most definitely made me swoon. ;)  He developed as a character and I loved him with Caroline and his cute nickname for her.  Their chemistry was off the charts and the …
