Nothing is more dangerous than falling in love....

When Caleb Devereaux's younger sister is kidnapped, the scion of a powerful and wealthy family turns to an unlikely source for help: a beautiful and sensitive woman with a gift for finding answers others cannot. While Ramie can connect to victims and locate them by feeling their pain, her ability comes with a price. Every time she uses it, it costs her a piece of herself. Helping the infuriatingly attractive and impatient Caleb successfully find his sister nearly destroys her. Even though his sexual intensity draws her like a magnet, she needs to get as far away from him as she can.

Deeply remorseful for the pain he's caused, Caleb is determined to make things right. But just when he thinks Ramie's vanished forever, she reappears. She's in trouble and she needs his help. Now Caleb will risk everything to protect her — including his heart....

If have issues with rape then you should be warned. While the rape doesn’t go into great detail it happens to two women. One in the physical aspect and the other through their empathy talent. 

I received a copy of the upcoming release in the Slow Burn series, Just One Touch so I decided to search my library for the previous books in the series. I found them all on audio so I’m doing a binge listen before I read Just One Touch.

Keep Me Safe is my first Maya Banks book and my first time listening to Jeffrey Kafer. Both firsts was enjoyable experiences. I really enjoyed the plot idea for Keep Me Safe that included a serial killer and empaths. There’s just a touch of supernatural element with the empaths.

I wasn’t blown away by Caleb and Ramie as a couple or a the main characters, but I like the world building this first novel in the Slow Burn series sets up. I will continue with the series and feel like I’ll enjoy more from other characters in the Devereaux family and their employees in their security firm.

The Coincidence of Coconut Cake by Amy E. Reichert

The Coincidence of Coconut Cake by Amy E. Reichert

Posted April 28, 2017 by Jennifer in Book Review | 0 Comments

read it, track reviews are a way  to track books for my reading challenges and they will be super short.   The Coincidence of Coconut Cake is my first novel by Reichert and my first time listening to C.S.E Cooney. Both firsts was met with enjoyment. Coconut Cake is a story about a chef down on her luck both in her love life and with her business. While the novel is not marketed as a romance it has one in it between the chef, Lou and Al. Think of the movie You’ve Got Mail where the couple meets, becomes friends then lovers but before they can get their HEA they have to deal with who they really are to each other. Reichert services up sweet romance and […]

Read it, track reviews are a way  to track books for my reading challenges and they will be super short.            Accidentally on Purpose is the 3rd full length novel in Shalvis’ Hearbreaker Bay series and we met the couple earlier in the series. Elle and Archer is THAT COUPLE in the series that you knew was going to end up together, but you had to wait for their story while getting peeks into them as secondary characters. Archer and Elle have a past where he saved her life one night. Ever since she has hoped that he would see her as the woman she grew up to be and not the teenager he saved. Archer does not think he’s good enough […]

      Read It, Track It is a way  to track books for my reading challenges and they will be super short. Rule Breaker is my introduction to Sienna Snow and I have to say it wasn’t a bad first meeting. Snow writes great strong female characters and sexy male counterparts.  Rule Breaker is a romance built around two characters that get a second chance at love but must go through some heart ache and deadly events to get their HEA and boy did they earn it! While Rule Breaker focused on a D/s relationship it wasn’t too heavy into kink that readers who don’t normally read the genre would be turned off. Snow’s writing grabbed me and had me starting the second book, Rule […]

         Read It, Track It is a way  to track books for my reading challenges and they will be super short.   Riptide is my second read in the Cutter Cay series.  I am reading the series in the lead up to the fourth book being released in March. The genre is romantic suspense which is one of my favorites. I did enjoy the mystery and action in Riptide.  Nick Cutter was interesting in his ability to read vocal accents and his government work. However, the billionaire guy with the gal down on her luck is a trope I hate. Nick seemed to think he should have sex with Bria because he’s attracted to her physically even though he sees her as […]

             Read It, Track It is a way  to track books for my reading challenges and they will be super short. Kindle freebie on August 12, 2015  (currently $4.99 as of writing this post) Overall rating 3.91 with 2,066 ratings and 181 reviews   This would be a Thrifty Thursday review except Thursday was busy. I’m trying to get most of my reviews published related to the COYER challenge (Clean Out Your Electronic Reads) so here we go. I was SO excited when I got this as a Kindle freebie. I had read the first one and liked it. I remembered that Jonetta likes this series and she reviewed French Roast, just before I got it. She gave it 5 […]

  Read It, Track It is a way  to track books for my reading challenges and they will be super short.   I purchased this when it was a deal, a couple of years ago. But I had not read all of the previous Elemental Mysteries series,  which introduces the main characters here and the ancillary characters, or the following Elemental World series which continues and expands the story. I caught up this fall to read the latest in the world, A Stone-Kissed Sea. Shadows and Gold is called a prequel novella but it is a little longer than a novella and longer than the second “book”  Imitation and Alchemy which follows. It is more akin to the mystery series which follows one couple in […]

      Read It, Track It is a way  to track books for my reading challenges and they will be super short.   I got this library book to decide if I wanted to read and review the upcoming fourth book in the Cutter Cay series. I’ve always wanted to read this author as my impression was it would be romantic suspense. For various reasons, I decided to do it so you will be seeing the next two books in these short reviews,  before the new one. It was fairly enjoyable to read. There are hot guys, treasure on the seas, and a lovely ocean paradise. There is mystery, action and adventure as the brothers go salvage treasure hunting on the ocean. The plots and […]
