Renegade Cowboy by Sara Richardson

Author: Sara Richardson
Release Date: December 19, 2017
Rating:  3 Stars⭐⭐⭐








Renegade Cowboy is the third installment in the Rocky Mountain Riders Series and it focuses on the younger brother Levi and Cassidy. Levi is a bull rider who comes home to help Lucas and Lance take care of their dad.  Cassidy, on the other hand, is an EMT who takes care of her alcoholic and depressed mother.  If you have read book one or two, then you know Cassidy and Levi have a long history and you also know that Levi was a wild child who started that fire that Lucas took the rap for and went to prison.  Simply put, Levi was Cassidy's brother best friend before his tragic death.  His death has left a mark on Levi and Cassidy.  Cassidy has applied to a nursing program in Denver and she is trying to prepare her mom to live on her own.  This is basically what this book is about.
Cassidy is an independent, hard-working woman who has a heart of gold.  I love her relationship with her mother and it makes this s…

Kiss my Boots by Harper Sloan

Author: Harper Sloan
Release Date: July 18, 2017
Rating:  3 ⭐⭐⭐




I'm going to start this review with two of the most used phrases in this book "Kiss my boots" and "hell-raiser".  Seriously, these two phrases were mentioned at least 20 times EACH!!  😲
"Kiss my Boots" is the second installment in the Coming Home Series and it follows Quinn, the baby sister in the Davis clan.  If you read book one then you know that Quinn was Leigh's best friend and now, her future sister-in-law. Quinn and Tate were childhood sweethearts until Tate left one summer nine years ago and never returned.  All of Quinn's attempt to reach out to him were not successful and this broke Quinn's young heart. Now Quinn is a "hell raiser" as everyone calls her and she is also the best mechanic in town.  Finally after nine years apart, Tate makes his grand return to Pine Oaks and his first mission is to get back the woman who he has loved for as long as he can remem…

Misadventures of a Virgin by Meredith Wild

Author:  Meredith Wild
Release Date:  December 5, 2017
Rating:  3.5 Stars ⭐⭐⭐½



I have been enjoying the series so far and this book was added to the list.  Now the misadventures series is a collection of several authors collaborating to write different stories.  Some books are written by one author, while some are written by two authors.  I am a big fan of Meredith Wild and I must say that she always delivers the heat with her stories.  This story follows June and Kase in the small town of Falls Edge.  I'm pretty sure you guessed from the title that June is a virgin who was once in love with Kase as a teenager, who returns home after graduating from college.  It is a typical second chance romance with a ton of heat.
June's family owns a hotel in town while Kase's family owns a farm.  June's dad is interested in Kase's family land and a deal is struck between the two families to satisfy both sides.  The interesting thing about this whole thing is the family rivalry betw…

Always Red by Isabelle Ronin

Author: Isabelle Ronin
Release Date: November 7, 2017
Rating:  5 Stars  ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐



This book goes on my list as one of the best books of 2017 because this book has everything.  I absolutely fell in love with Caleb in this book and I will tell you why in a second.  This is book two in the widely proclaimed Red series and it picks up where book 1 left off.  I would like to add that it would be helpful to read book one first before picking this up.  I will also add that I gave book one 3 stars and you can check out my review for Chasing Red, so for me to give this book 5 stars is pretty major. Now back to book 2, in this story we have Veronica, a.k.a Red, finally accepting Caleb, her feelings and the strong love that he has for her.  While book 1 was about Caleb trying to get Red to love him, in book 2 their relationship takes off in a major way, but they are faced with obstacles of course.  This book still has the supporting colorful side characters and I still want the author to do a book abo…

Misadventures of a Backup Bride by Shayla Black

Release Date:  October 17, 2017
Rating:  4 Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟




I know that I am about a month late with this review, but I have been so busy.  My life is crazy right now so please forgive me for the late review. 😌

I think this is the 4th book in the Misadventures Series and I enjoyed this book for what it was.  We have Characters Carson, a CEO of a candy company who recently inherited it from his absent father, and Ella, a "not so famous" actress in Hollywood who is hired by Carson to play his girlfriend.  Carson has recently inherited his father's candy company and he has to find a way to fix its financial problems.  Being that he is a rookie CEO, there aren't any banks that are willing to loan him the money so he turns to his rival, Mr. Shaw to lend him the money, which is crazy by the way.  But nothing comes easy and there is a catch, Carson must marry Shaw's daughter and also give him 5% of his dad's company.  Shaw's daughter is 10 yea…

Misadventures of a Good Wife by Meredith Wild & Helen Hardt

Authors:  Meredith Wild & Helen Hardt
Release Date: October 17, 2017
Rating:  4 Stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐







This is the second installment in the misadventures series and it does live up to its erotica reputation.  But the question is, unlike the first book, does it have a plot and more to offer than sex?To answer this question, yes it does and it has a little dash of suspense to drive the plot.This book has no connection to book one, so you can read it without reading book one first.Believe me, book two is much better.In this installment, we have husband and wife named Price and Kate, respectively, and we have a lot of steam and a little suspense with Price.Price was believed to be dead for a year following a plane crash, but it is later revealed that he was alive and well.In comes Kate, a journalist who went into a deep depression because of Price's supposed "death".Price's sister decide to lift Kate from her funk and takes her on a tropical vacation for 3 weeks and little does K…

Slap Shot by Kelly Jamieson

Author:  Kelly Jamieson
Release Date:  October 17, 2017
Rating: 3. 5 Stars  ⭐⭐⭐




Slap Shot.!!! Let me just say those two words for you and let it marinate… Okay, now that we have shared a giggle, let us jump into this book review.  First off, this is a sport romance and it is part of a series.  I just want to disclose that I have not read any of the books in this series, but I have read other books by this author.  This books starts off with Max's ex-teammate's wedding where he meets the cousin of the bride named Kendra.  They lock eyes, they connect, she invites Max to her room and the rest is hot sex. 
This book is told from Max's pov and he has had a rough year.  He lost his wife to cancer, he took an entire season off from hockey and he is afraid to love again because he feels that if he does, he will be betraying her.  I really felt for Max and I understood is inner battle with himself and why he fought his feelings for Kendra.  Max was not an alpha, which I appreciated,…

Bet on it by Elizabeth Perry

Author:  Elizabeth Perry
Release date:  September 19, 2017
Rating:  4 Stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐



May I start off by saying that this cover is H-O-T.  Okay, drooling session over. Let's get into this review.  
This book took a while to build momentum, but I am glad that I stuck around because this book was good.  This book is a about a pro baseball player who, dumbly, places a bet that he can get the new team's "MOM" to sleep with him, so that she can get fired.  This book is told from both Laci's and Jake's pov and I loved Jake all the way. While trying to win the bet against his teammates, Jake gets to know the "mommy" and starts to realize that she is an amazing woman and starts  to develop feelings for her. 

I will not spoil the details, but Jake was a wonderful hero and even though he suffered heartbreak, that did not stop him from having faith in love and placing his heart on the line.  Eventhough Jake was pressured to take on the bet, he was such a sweetheart wit…

Chasing Red by Isabelle Ronin

Author:  Isabelle Ronin
Release Date:  September 05, 2017
Rating:  3 Stars ☆☆☆




This book was on the Goodreads' must read list and I jumped at the chance to read it, but was the story worth the hype though.? This story about a girl named Veronica or Red, which is what Caleb calls her.  Red is a girl with a troubled past and down on her luck when she runs into Caleb at a club.  Caleb is a basketball superstar who notices Veronica in a smoking, hot dress, which is where her nickname comes from.  The two meet up and go their separate ways, but fate has its way and they end up at Caleb's apartment.  It's not what you are thinking because Caleb is a renowned Superman who just can't turn his back on a damsel in distress.  This story is pretty much about their relationship blooming and Caleb trying to show Red that she can trust him. 
There was so much hype around this story that I had high expectations.  Sadly my expectations were not met because this story dragged along and i…

Misadventures of a City Girl by Meredith Wild & Chelle Bliss

Author(s):  Meredith Wild & Chelle Bliss
Release Date:  September 12, 2017
Rating:  3 Stars  ⭐⭐⭐





Whoa.!!!!  Let me start with that word because this book is sex on a page. This book most definitely live up to the hype of being scorching hot, but is it enough to make a great story.? Let's find out.  First I wanted to give  you a little insight on this hot read.  First we have the city girl, Madison, and our hot lumberjack sex on a stick, Luke.  Madison is a Hollywood make-up artistwho was recently divorced from a no-good cheating husband and was looking for a nice, quiet retreat from the noisy fast-paced city.  Little does she know, she will meet Luke, an ex-Navy Seal who lives in the cabin deep in the forest, and from there the temperature in this book reach blaring red levels. 
In the first 5 pages of this book you get a sex scene and it really surprised me.  I guess I should have expected it because Ms. Wild is the queen of erotica.  The sex scenes are hot to say the least a…

Turbulent Intrigue by Melody Anne

Release date:  August 1, 2017
Rating:  3 Stars ⭐⭐⭐






I was really looking forward to Ace's story because he was like the black sheep of the family.  So I was one hundred percent sure that I was going to love this book.  Did I love it? I will let you know in a second, but first let me give a little information about the story.  This is the fourth book in the billionaire aviator series and Ace, along with his three brothers, has to get married or they will not receive their inheritance.  Ace took his father's words the hardest and found solace by joining the CIA.  All the other brothers are married now (spoiler alert) and enjoying the family lifestyle and meanwhile, Ace is returning home after being injured while working on a case.   While attending one of his brother's wedding, he meets Dakota and the story takes off. 
Now, I really liked book 1 and book 3 of this series(book 2 was not that good) and I could not wait to read Ace's story.  Ace was the most interesting, bes…

Hard Justice by April Hunt

Author:  April Hunt
Release Date:  August 29, 2017
Rating:  3.5 Stars  ⭐⭐⭐




It took me quite a while to read this book simply because my personal life was in shambles and this book started off slow for me.  The blurb sounded interesting and I am a big fan of security romance novels, so it made perfect sense to give this book a chance. In this security novel, we have Charlotte, a computer bad ass, and Vince who is a retired navy seal.  They dance around each other for half of the book while trying to solve an abduction case.  This book starts out with Charlotte and Vince being put together to solve a case and it means uncovering the truth about Charlotte and her past. For the most part, I enjoyed the second half of this book because that is when the action starts.  The one thing that threw me off was the function of Alpha Security and I did not know whether they were detectives or the CIA.  I have read a lot of security romance novels and this story doesn't really tell their primary fu…

Here Comes the Bride by Hope Ramsay

Author: Hope Ramsay
Release Date:  August 29, 2017
Rating: 4 Stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐


Once again Hope Ramsay creates a story that touches the heart with her second book in the Chapel of love Series.  I wholeheartedly enjoyed this read and it especially touched my heart because I am going through a break-up myself after eight years. This story uplifted me and I could not have read a more better book at this point in my life.  There were tears, laughs, and some heat to carry this story and Laurie was a great heroine and she gave this story some realism. Laurie has suffered the most humiliating that can happen to a bride on her wedding day.  She was left at the altar by the man that she has been with for the last ten years and to her surprise the best man comes to her aid.  Andrew is stuck between a rock and a hard place because the groom that ran out of his own wedding is his best friend and the bride is his boss's daughter.  Forced to set Laurie up on some dates to get under Brandon's skin,…

Summer of Seduction

The Way Back Home by Carmen Jenner

Author:  Carmen Jenner
Release date: May 30,2017
Rating: 4 Stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐





A story about two broken souls learning to love and accepting their pasts, The Way Back Home is about August, a former marine, and Olivia, a psychologist, I think.  Her occupation is never really directly stated, but I do know that she has an organization that pairs dogs with veterans who has PTSD.  Looking to open a location in this small but rude town, Olivia connects with a couple who has a son that suffers from PTSD and has lost his leg to an IED.  When she arrives to this town, everything that can go wrong does go wrong and to top it all off, the lovely couple whose bed & breakfast she was supposed to stay has died.  She comes face to face with their less than hospitable son and adorable 4-year old daughter.  The story takes off from there and this is just the first chapter.
The pacing of this story is fairly slow, but a lot happens with August and Olivia.  They have good chemistry and the sexual tension was th…

Comeback Cowboy by Sara Richardson

Author:  Sara Richardson
Release Date:  June 28,2017
Rating:  4 Stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐



I was so excited to read this book because I got a little taste of Lucas and Naomi's relationship in book 1 and I was intrigued. Book 2 of the Rocky Mountains Riders series brings patience, forgiveness, and honesty to the forefront.  Our hero, Lucas, is back in town to help take care of his sick father who has Parkinson's.  Returning home means Lucas has to face his past and most importantly face Naomi, his high school sweetheart whom he left behind 10 years ago.   When Lucas was 17 he went to prison for a crime that he did not commit and with the sentence of solitary confinement, came the hard decision to leave Naomi behind.  If you have read book one then you know that Lucas took the wrap for his younger brother Levi, who really started the fire.  Their reunion would have been beautiful except, Naomi is avoiding Lucas like a plague and is holding a life changing secret.
This book was emotional, raw and so…

Semper Fi Cowboy by Heather Long

Author:  Heather Long
Release Date:  06/26/2017
Rating:  4 Stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐




A heartfelt story about a marine cowboy coming home and finding love, Semper Fi Cowboy is the story for the ages.  This book grabbed me and did not let me go and I was deeply moved by the heart of this story.  The colorful style of writing pulls me in and this author creates a pleasing small town and realistic characters. Texas heat? Check. Hot cowboy and strong female lead? Check and check.  The momentum from the beginning of the story pushed forward with full steam and made a much needed stop for a heart to heart conversation between a father and son.  Retired mariner Tanner return home when he gets a call that his father had a heart attack and is needing some help around the ranch.  The thing is Colonel, Tanner's dad, is not having it and he is making it his mission to let Tanner know at every turn.  On his way into town, Tanner stops at one of his favorite bars back at his hometown and comes across Jules.  The…

I know I haven't posted a review in a while, but I have been nose deep in cowboy romance books lately.  So I guess I can call the month June Cowboy appreciation month.  Everyone else seems to make up holidays, so why can't I?  Well lets dive into this story about a heart broken cowboy finding love again. :)
I enjoyed myself while reading this book and I am happy to say that this cowboy made me swoon. I read this book fairly quickly and it is a page turner for sure.  It had a dose of heat, humor, and heart that made this story well rounded. Grace, a teacher from New Zealand, visits the small town of Bozeman to teach some students with whom she has skyped with and she has traveled half-way around the world to meet these students. Trent, a cowboy all the way to the bone, gets the honor of picking  up Grace from the airport and the sparks fly. Grace is on a special mission to find her father and Trent is on a …

Author:  Charlene Sands Release Date:  May 22, 2017 Rating: 3 Stars⭐⭐⭐

A fake marriage is what they both need to get something that they desperately need. Jillian needs Jack's polished and respectable reputation and Jack needs to adopt a little boy named Beau and having Jillian pose as his wife will give the illusion that he is able to care for Beau.

One Little Word by Elizabeth Perry

Release date:  April 23, 2017
Rating:  4 stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐





What a beautiful story.  This is a second-chance romance at its best and it is not an easy ride to get to the happily ever after.  Characters,  Reese and Beckett are high school sweethearts who were supposed to get married ten years ago, but life happened and lies were told.  Reese left Beckett at the altar and Beckett was left devastated.  This couple went through so much together and I was so glad when the truth was revealed.  They lost so much time together and I really loved them together.  There were flashbacks in this story and it gave both characters a backstory and revealed how their loved bloomed and crashed.  The chemistry between these two jumped off the page and I could not get enough of Beckett.  Beckett was a man who loved hard and his poor heart was broken by Reese.  Reese is another character who loved hard but instead of facing her problems she ran away.
There were a lot of grammatical errors.  The usage of "your&…

Hot Shot by Kelly Jamieson

Author:  Kelly Jamieson
Release date:  May 16, 2017 Rating:  4 Stars⭐⭐⭐⭐


I give this book four smoking, caliente stars because Marco is a shot that I do not mind taking straight.  Hot Shot is a story about two insecure individuals who come together and find love, acceptance, self-confidence. Former Navy Seal hottie Marco is as hot as it gets and I absolutely loved him in this story. He was straight forward and went after what he wanted.  I did not read the first book in the series and that did not take away the enjoyment.  Every character was introduced marvelously and this story was brought to life with compelling characters and a good love story.  I enjoyed the characters' journey to finding love and this story also had some heat to balance it.   The characters were very compatible and I could not get enough of the sizzling chemistry between Marco and  Carrie.  The characters were well developed with Marco being a character looking for a family and  Carrie wanting to feel a part of…
