  Stealing Mr. Right jumps back and forth between present day and about a year (15 months or so) to show us how Penelope and Grant met and fall in love. The story is told through Penelope’s POV. Present day Penelope is still a jewel thief who is married to Grant a FBI agent. They both know Grant is watching her and her band of friends. They are playing a sexy cat and mouse game but only one of them knows they are playing for keeps. Or should I say only one is up front about it. It takes one of them a little longer to come to terms with the fact they actually love their spouse. Stealing Mr. Right is an enjoyable read about […]

Enjoy this excerpt from Saving Mr. Perfect. “I’m sorry,” Grant says. “I don’t mean to be so overbearing, but you have to remember that as much as I love you, you’re not a favorite with everyone at the Bureau.” “Give me time,” I say. “I’m only one woman. It might take me a few years, but I’ll get there.” His lips twitch. “Penelope…” “And it’s not as if he said or did anything bad,” I add, eager to leverage that oh-so-promising break in his exterior. “We mostly talked about you. He seemed nice.” “That man is not nice. I don’t want you to have anything to do with him or with this case from here on out. Promise me.” “I’ll do no such thing,” I […]


Maybe This Summer by Jennifer Snow

Maybe This Summer by Jennifer Snow

I’m not one to read series out-of-order, but one thing I really like about contemporary romances is you can sample a new to you author’s writing style with a novella without feeling lost by not reading the previous novels. Maybe This Summer by Jennifer Snow is a great introduction to her voice. It was a quick, sexy and romantic appetizer that has me wanting to order from the full menu that is the Colorado Ice series. I love Paige and Owen’s story. They both have a past they are still healing from, both emotionally and physically. I also like the fact that even though the story involves some sports themes it’s not too heavy for someone who knows nothing about hockey. The sports element is just a seasoning on […]


Joint Review: All or Nothing at All by Jennifer Probst

Joint Review: All or Nothing at All by Jennifer Probst

        I’ve really enjoyed Jennifer Probst’s Billionaire Builders. Each Pierce brother’s story is better than the last and All or Nothing at All is the best book in the series. I read it in one sitting! I rarely do that but Sydney and Tristan’s story grabbed me by the heart and I could not put it down! I love a contemporary romances that features a hero/heroine getting their long time crush or a second chance romance and All or Nothing at All has both! Sydney and Tristan grew up together but there was a 4 year age difference with him being older. Sydney’s crush on Tristan grew to love over the years but he wasn’t ready for the same level of emotions once they finally acted […]


After You by Erin Nicholas

           I like Erin Nicholas’ books, so I signed up to be a reviewer for her. After You is the first book they sent me for review. It is from the Sapphire Falls series.   I read Getting Out of Hand  Last week to prepare but have not read the rest of the series. Yet.  The people in the small town were not the same ones in the two books for the most part. There were names I recognized but the main couple from the first book wasn’t even mentioned. (And that’s fine).  I didn’t feel confused having not read the other books, but I think I would have enjoyed it more if I had, and got more emotional connection and perhaps humor […]

                  The purpose of Thrifty Thursday is to read a book which was free (at some point). Kindle freebie on March 21 , 2016  (currently free as of writing this post) Overall rating 3.85 with 3,265 ratings and 804 reviews   I started reading Erin Nicholas with her new geek romance series, Opposites Attract, and loved it.  Since I wanted to read more of her works, I signed up for her review team. They sent me a book, After You, which is in the world of the Sapphire Falls series.   Since the first in the series was available as a Kindle freebie (and I already had it), I decided to read Getting Out of Hand to introduce me to the […]

    Review   We met both Melody Rodriguez and Trent Hettinger in the first two books of this series. But, we only knew the basics. She’s Evelyn’s best friend, he dated Evelyn briefly. He’s into BDSM and is a Dom. She’s really good at her jobs and is in a committed relationship with him. Now, their story takes major steps backwards in time to share how they came to be.   One of the unexpected bonuses coming out of this story was getting third party perspectives about the Evelyn/Austin/Ross relationship from the very beginning. I wondered during the first two books how much employees and others knew about them, what they thought and that gets answered. And, more details about Evelyn’s dalliance with Trent […]

    Garrett Kilcannon turned his love of dogs into a social media phenomenon. However, he then sold his internet based company for a tidy sum, agreeing to work for the buyer. Three months later, he broke his contract and returned home to Bitter Bark, North Carolina and, together with his five siblings, created a now renowned dog rescue and training facility on the family property. He’s reclusive and elusive, refusing any media contact. Now, journalist Jessica Curtis wants to do a television feature on him so she can compete for a new TV broadcasting anchor spot as he’s a major “get.” She’s no stranger to the family as she grew up in Bitter Bark but left as a teen.   I love stories about […]
