Under Her Skin by Adriana Anders

Under Her Skin by Adriana Anders

Posted February 7, 2017 by Jennifer in Book Review | 2 Comments

Under Her Skin by Adriana Anders is a great debut novel in her Blank Canvas series!   Reasons to read Under Her Skin Ivan – bearded, blacksmith neighbor who looks dangerous but has a heart of gold Uma – on the run from abusive ex but stays strong through her road to recovery Ms. Loyd – old hag that needs love and friendship Romance novel wrapped in mystery, suspense and the dark and light sides of love Uma’s past wouldn’t have allowed for an instant hook up and I’m really like how the romance element was the main focus until about half way through the story. The romance between Ivan and Uma was a slow burn something both of them needed. These characters were hunted and […]

Any Time, Any Place by Jennifer Probst

Any Time, Any Place by Jennifer Probst

Posted February 3, 2017 by Jennifer in Book Review | 0 Comments

read it, track it is a way for me to track books for my reading challenges and the reviews will be super short. Anne reviewed Any Time, Any Place already so I’ll keep my review short. The second book in Probst’s Billionaire Builders focuses Dalton Pierce, the brother of the hero of the first book, Everywhere and Every Way. Dalton spent some time away from the family business and home in California but after the events in the first book he came home and now he trying to show his brothers he is not the flake they think he is. He’s serious about his wood work but never serious about a relationship with the ladies. Raven is connected with the Pierce brothers from the past but they […]


Breath of Fire by Amanda Bouchet

Breath of Fire by Amanda Bouchet

       My initial thought of the first book: I was excited going into Breath of Fire. Then I actually starting reading it. I like the first few chapters but once Cat, Griffin and the rest of Team Beta was well on their journey to the Ice Lands I got bored. I started to skim. A. LOT. So much so I’m sure I was missing important information for the plot. I finally got to a scene in the book where Cat and one of the guys from Team Beta was in a cave (?) and I wasn’t sure why they were in there and what they were after but was ever the task it took forever. Cat went from saying Gag and Gross in the A […]


Of Silk and Steam by Bec McMaster

Of Silk and Steam by Bec McMaster

Of Silk and Steam brings the events that has been building since book 1, Kiss of Steel are finally brought to a close. Bec McMaster writes great characters and her couples are always fun to see go through their issues to get to their HEA. This time she brings us a couple that are frenemies of a sort. Mina does not like Leo Barrons because his father killed her father. Yeah, that’s going to be a big issue to get over in order for them to get friendly with each other. Leo has wanted Mina for his own for a few years and has been patient in his “chase” of her. Of course it pays off and seeing Leo melt Mina’s chilly exterior was both fun […]


Eleventh Grave in Moonlight by Darynda Jones

Eleventh Grave in Moonlight by Darynda Jones

I listened to Eleventh Grave in Moonlight in one sitting! Charley usually has a few “irons in the fire” and she really juggled few more issues this time around. There were a few mysteries, some she was paid to figure out since she’s a P.I. and all. (One can’t live off of just coffee, although I think if someone could it would be Charley and Cookie.) The other mysteries were a little more personal, which is the case with all the books in Darynda Jones’ Charley Davidson series but they’ve never crossed over Charley’s job as much as the case of the Frosts aka the elderly couple that kidnapped baby Reyes all those years ago just to give him to the master, Earl Walker. About […]


Talking Between Reads (TBR): It Ain’t FREE!

Talking Between Reads (TBR): It Ain’t FREE!

Posted January 16, 2017 by Jennifer in Talking Between Reads | 19 Comments

Talking Between Reads (TBR) is a monthly discussion post where we talk about different topics from books to blogging and anything else we think you guys might enjoy. Stop by for new topics. Marketing a Book as FREE via Kindle Unlimited is my biggest pet peeve at the moment. What exactly is Kindle Unlimited? It is a new service that allows you to read as much as you want, choosing from over 600,000 titles and thousands of audiobooks. You can read on any device. It’s available for $9.99 a month and you can cancel anytime. Why is my pet peeve? Look at the description of KU. IT COSTS $9.99 A MONTH. What the hell about that screams FREE? Not a damn thing.   I wondered about the […]


The Operator by Kim Harrison

The Operator by Kim Harrison

Kim Harrison always delivers a great ride and The Operator is another keep-your-hands-inside-the-cart ride you will want to be first in line to experience. So I did a reread of The Drafter via audio before I started The Operator because this series is one that you need to remember the details for, so no you can’t jump into this new series without reading the first book. Don’t even try! I really enjoyed listening to both (I read The Drafter the first time). January LaVoy does a fantastic job delivering the action and feelings involved in Peri’s world. She managed to keep the pace at the correct speed for the scenes and interjected the perfect tones for each character and their personalities. The Operator builds upon […]
