"Worth the trouble" St. James book 2 by Jamie Beck




Worth the Trouble  is book two of the St. James series written by Jamie Beck.  Now let me start by saying that I am huge fan of Jamie Beck because she is a talented author and  her writing is phenomenal.  Now let’s get to the reason that you all are here…the review of this book! This novel is about Cat, a model in her own, and Hank, a hot carpenter, who have strong feelings for each other but are hesitant to act on those feelings.  In the first book of the series,  Cat and Hank are introduced as supportive characters and the chemistry between these two are undeniable.   Let me start with the positive elements of this novel,  the writing is phenomenal and the story goes at a steady pace.  The author takes the time to develop these two characters and to express the turmoil of feelings that each character goes through.
Now lets get to the messy aspect of this review....I absolutely hated this book and I am so disappointed because I loved the first one. I waited a long time for this book to be released and it was a failure. Now there were some good moments in this book but they are scarce.  The chemistry between Cat and Hank In book one was electric and they weren’t even the main characters. But in book two I didn’t feel that electricity between them. Another thing that I hate about this book is Cat.  I know it’s bad but I hate the main character . Cat is not interesting to me and this book did not have a good plot to make Cat likable.
The one thing I like about this book is Hank and he kept this book grounded and his character was interesting.  This book felt like a “how to open a business” book than a romance story. The sex scenes are lame and it was painful to read. I am just surprised at the quality of this story.  I will not be following this series.
Now, I do not want you to completely disregard this book because of this review because this is solely based on my opinion.  Jamie Beck is a talented author and I want you to check out her other book.  Here is her website (www.jamiebeck.com) or you can go to Amazon and check out the rest of her novels.  Book one of this series is a must read, the title of this book is Worth the Wait.

Happy reading.!!!

A witty female lead and an emotional scarred hero, what can go wrong when opposites attract? By opposites, I mean Aiden,a reserved, broken character is drawn to free spirited Hannah with a great sense of humor. It took me awhile to realize that this book was a part of a seriesand book 4 nonetheless.Characters Hannah and Aiden are polar opposites and, yet , they are perfect for each other.Aiden is a reserved national guardsmen who goes to duty on the weekends.He is a great buddy of Hannah's best friend and all of them get together on the weekend to eat good food and socialize.Aiden has been watching Hannah for quite some time and he finally gets an opportunity to approach Hannah and develop a friendship.Once the friendship flourishes, it makes way for a sweet, intense, humorous love story.

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 …
