Rocky Mountain Novel Heat A Six Pack Ranch Book 1 written by: Vivian Arend

Hello all, to quote a character who is wise and quite awesome and from another series... "Human Mating habits are stupid"... That being said I did enjoy this latest book I finished by Vivian Arend. We are introduced to the beautiful and determined Jaxi. Jaxi practically grew up on the Coleman farm and among the six Coleman brothers. The Coleman brood were all practically Jaxi 's brothers, but she isn't their sister when it comes to reality. Now, Jaxi is all grown up and she has a plan to finally catch Blake Coleman's eye and his heart. Blake Coleman though is old enough to realize giving into one's urges and not thinking things through can cause a whole heck of a lot of trouble. However, when an accident puts Jaxi smack dab into the middle of Blake's life ignoring his natural impulses is becoming quite impossible. In Blake's eyes he is Jaxi's older brother and knows wanting her is just wrong. That being said the friction between the two of these people is about to create quite the fire. But, Blake's other younger brothers are also noticing the beautiful blonde with legs for days woman Jaxi has grown into. These brothers are more than willing to risk a few broken bones to fight for Jaxi. Again, "Human mating habits are stupid." These two clearly want to be together and yet this book is going to torture and tantalize us with their very real courtship. There are some very steamy scenes within this book and not to be cliche but quite a bit of boot knocking too. This is not just a full on erotic tale readers there is family, courtship, love, drama, and alright a whole lot of erotic scenes that will have you gasping. Arend does a magnificent job at setting the stage for future books too. Now, I know what you're asking, do they end up together? Well, you'll have to read and enjoy this book as much as I did. It is book one in the series, after all there are six Coleman brothers, and I cannot wait to read more about these brothers and their lives down on the farm and between the bed sheets, and on the table, and in the barn. Right, good read and well written. Until later fellow readers.

Claimed by the Alpha Dolphins: Part Two: Desired by the Deep Written by: Lyra Fawn

Compromise readers, they say in a compromise both sides lose no? Well, Mona is trying really hard in this second book to figure out a way to make her two Princes compromise both in culture and in their romantic lives, book two readers! I really couldn't wait to see what happens, so if you haven't read the first book in this series I warn you now, read no further! Mona is being annoyed and torn by constant rivalry between the Herakli and the Atlanti Pods, and it is clear both sides firmly believe the other side is right. Dario and Lucan are also torn as throughout the years of traveling together they've formed a bond of trust and dare I say, friendship? There's a reason why these two Dolphinae princes decided to unite and put their issues aside in the first place, the Mordentes. The Mordentes are enemies of the Dolphanie and they are organizing and becoming even more deadly. Mona is forced to flee with her princes and danger is escalating and it seems that even the Dolphanie high powered organizations might not be enough to keep her safe. Now, back to the compromise, Mona has an idea and it might just be brilliant and be the solution to cause the least bloodshed and maximum results. Mona believes that with her body and the bodies of her princes she can bridge the gap between the two pods and perhaps get what she really wants the unification of their hearts. This book was a bit more steamy indeed and the story is proving quite interesting and the way it ends, well, just what does Lyra Fawn have up her sleeves? I really don't know, but I am waiting for the third book and cannot wait to see what will happen in this paranormal erotic series.

Claimed By The Alpha Dolphins Part One; Bound to the Sea Written by: Lyra Fawn

It is summer time readers, and as we've seen for three summers straight that means erotic book reading! Okay, I read erotic books all year long, but the summer just works so well with them too, especially oceanic set erotic tales. So, we have two, yes two brawny surfers from a foreign realm complete with exotic accents. These two delicious Adonis look alike have a secret, but they might just share it with you, if you're someone special. What counts as special? Well, seems you have to be what's known as a 'Descendant of Neptune'. Mona our heroine finds herself on a beach in California one day attempting to not get her fair skinned burned, and when a horrible attack occurs she witnesses something truly fascinating. Soon Mona is at the center of a centuries old conflict between two rival pods of dolphin shifters known as the Dolphinae. Half of the pair notices her beautiful curves and red hair, but Lucan a dark and handsome prince does not completely catch Mona's notice she is fascinated by Lucan's partner a blonde regal looking fellow; Dario who is also a prince. So, not only is Mona in the middle of a long standing conflict now she is the center of a rivalry between men. But, wait there's more, it seems there is also another danger that lurks on both land and in sea... can Mona bridge the two Alpha Dolphinae and their clans and manage to not well drown? There's some steamy scenes in this book readers, and the disclaimer of the book says for 18 plus, but as far as erotic tales go, this one was pretty relaxed and not that out there compared to other series I have read, the shifter aspect was quite interesting and I really fell into the story and I am wondering what will happen to Mona and the two princes.

Happy(ish) Written by Cara Trautman

Three book readers! That's right three books one month, ah the addiction is back with a vengeance! My morning commute has been way more enjoyable and my home commute even more so with these books in my life again, and this book was a real gem readers, I mean it was hands down awesome! So, how does a 35 year old woman residing in Michigan end up reluctantly dressed as a squirrel in the name of love? Well, author Cara Trautman plops us into the life of Jane Pearson who is single, an avid chooser of wrong men to sleep with, terrible at doing any type of house work, and kind of well a loser, but a lovable loser. Jane has a lot going on in her life, she has to deal with; vibrators that set on fire, a crazy demanding mother, eccentric friends, peculiar co-workers, a twenty four year old goldfish, a crazy off beat family, and oh she's looking for love. Jane has developed some odd quirks in life and it seems now is the time for life to teach her some lessons and of course she has to do this dressed as a squirrel, because... why not? I did find myself wanting to strangle Jane, because at 35 I would hope this woman would realize that maybe her current path and actions are not exactly working for her, but this lady has some serious blinders on. The cast of characters in this book had me laughing out loud in public quite often, I think a few people even sat elsewhere because I laughed... cackled a bit too much. There is a lot going on in this plot and it blends together in such a fun way that I absolutely adored it. A very fun read indeed.

You're The One a Bistro La Bohème Written by Alix Nichols

Hola readers, wow, two books read in a short amount of time, starting to feel more like myself huzzah! Reading on the train for 80 minutes a day sure goes a long way. I missed reading, and honestly readers though I love school and my classmates I just sometimes, okay most of the time cannot resist the pull of a book to just dive into another world. This book was an absolute treat, in fact it was so sweet I felt like I was curled up in my favorite comfortable pair of jeans and sweater in my book room enjoying a delightfuly warm cup of tea overlooking my neighborhood on a crisp morning. This was just one of those books that left you sighing and giggling in delight. The author introduces us to nursery school teacher Natalie who absolutely adores children and aches for a child of her own, but her longtime boyfriend declares pretty forcefully his career comes first. Natalie respects her boyfriend's decision and blames herself for his refusal that is until she learns the truth. Next, we are introduced to Adrien a professional chess player who divides his time by spending time in his favorite cafe analyzing chess moves and competing internationally. Chess is Adrien's passion and yet it is not enough to make him happy. So how are these two characters a nursery school teacher and a professional chess player connected? Well, I cannot say! That would spoil the whole story, and this a novella and so it is short to begin with, but still this little book packs a punch. I very much enjoyed this short story and if you want a little shot of romance right into the blood stream this just might be the book for you.

Death By Honeymoon Book 1 In the Caribbean Murder Series Written by Jaden Skye

Hello Readers! My, my, my, it has been a long time! I do apologize for not reading as many books this summer as previous years, and for not updating more often. Alright, so, life on this end has been pretty spectacular following my dream is proving to be quite rewarding, of course I'm a wee ball of explosive emotions consisting of both happiness and strife, but it's rewarding strife. But, I am happy and being genuinely happy has caused me to realize how unhappy I was in the corporate world of accounting. Alright, so book, finally, after six weeks of not reading, yeah six weeks! I finally had time to pick up a book (while commuting to and from school) and read! Since it is still summer I picked this book that Book Bub recommended. We are introduced to the happily recently married couple Cindy and Clint, and these two are so in love and it appears quite happy to declare it to the world and begin their life as one together. It is the couples honeymoon you see and they are happily celebrating their union on the rugged, wild, eastern shore of Barbados, but it seems happily ever is not to be for this couple. Cindy rushes to the shore to find her love, but instead of his handsome smile she is greeted with nothing. Soon Cindy realizes her beloved has been taken from her, drowned in a freak accident in the ocean. Clint's death is soon declared an accident by the local police and so Cindy must fly home alone a widow after a few days of marriage to the man she thought would be by her side til they were old and grey. Once home readers Cindy is brought to her knees by other events beyond her control and her already emotional state is frayed further, but there is a thought growing inside of her; the thought that Clint's death wasn't an accident but MURDER!  But, why would Cindy think this and what proof does she have? Where can a grieving wife go with her suspicions and be taken seriously? The story itself takes a bit to get going as it is mostly consisting of how depressed Cindy is and her mourning the loss of her life with her dearly departed husband. Once the book does begin steam rolling though readers it does not stop and plows right ahead and before we know it the book is wrapped up and the brave Cindy is also it seems at the end of her journey. I won't say this was a great book, but it had some interesting character writing and the mystery was well mysterious. The beginning of the book could have been drawn out further, but I think the author knew once she began to unravel the murder mystery in her book the secrets would start pouring out and be hard to keep us the readers in the dark. Still, it's been weeks since I've been able to just kick back and enjoy a book, and I did enjoy this book, but being away from reading so long perhaps I just was hoping for a bit more.

Circus of the Dead Written by: Seth Blackburn

Well, hello there readers! I know it's been a long time, too long, but these days reading books sadly does not take center stage for me, at least not for pure leisure enjoyment. I hope you are all well and enjoying the summer curled up in book rooms, porches, beaches, or lawn chairs with a great book. I'm reading a lot for school now, so I'm still reading, and I try to sneak in a book be it audio or physical here and there, but school is taken up so much time! So, I decided to finally read this book I downloaded from book bub a few months ago and they recommended it is short a novelette, but long enough to entertain. In this world the author Blackburn introduces us to young Gabriel, who lives in a post zombie apocalyptic world. Twenty years ago the dead destroyed the world we knew of, and the survivors scattered in the wake of the Scourge. The town Gabriel lives in is small and is quite sparse area, for Gabriel the walking dead are merely stories and memories to those that survived the undead.  The young of today are more concerned with their hard life's' now in America's desert where they must try to repopulate their providence and keep up with their hard chores and live good religious lives. Sometimes Gabriel is given a reprieve from his current life by delving into books that were stashed beneath the cellar of the town's library, this is his life, that is... until... the Circus comes to town. Though, Gabriel doesn't really know what the circus is, and the town's Reverend sees this as an omen of poor tidings. Readers, this is no ordinary circus this circus has something to fascinate both young and old and to tempt them to enter those faded tent flap doors, this circus has... the undead. This book was okay, it was short like I said, and could have been a full novel I think, but it reminded me of a campfire ghost story or in this case zombie story it is a tale that could be told in one sitting and as time goes on embellished and added to. It was not exactly horrifying or even that scary, but it was entertaining and I think the author could really build upon this especially the journey in the end.
