Sometimes a book delivers all the elements that I adore and such was the case with Branded by Laura Wright. I accepted the book for review after reading the synopsis and discovering it was a series involving brothers. Branded is the first in the Cavanaugh Brothers series a contemporary romance series set in the small town of River Black, Texas at the Triple C cattle ranch. Wright delivered a hot tale, fleshed out characters, a decade old mystery and family secrets..Yeehaa!
I am a huge fan of Samantha Young’s On Dublin Street series and was excited for the opportunity to review Fall from India Place the fourth book of the series. Young brings complex characters and compelling twists that allow you to lose yourself in the story. I admired Hannah and fell in love with Marco D’Alessandro. The tale was hot, gave me the feels and had me up late finishing this tale. Check out my coffee dates with Fall from India Place….
I adored Foreplay the first book in the Ivy Chronicles by Sophie Jordan and found it to be a refreshing, low-angst tale in sea of drama filled new adult titles. As you can imagine I was excited to get my hands on Tease the second book. While I enjoyed myself and Jordan writes fleshed out characters, I was left disappointed that it had all of the trappings of a typical new adult novel.
The Girl with the Windup Heart was a successful yet predictable finish to the Steampunk Chronicles by Kady Cross. With two storylines, all of our favorite characters are present as Cross weaved danger, humor and romantic moments into a steampunk-filled finale.
I love westerns, historical novels and mail order bride tropes, so when the chance to read, In Want of a Wife by Jo Goodman came up I snagged it. Boy Howdy, am I glad I did. This historical romance had everything. Goodman spun a tale of ranch life, romance and then weaved a suspenseful plot around our heroine and hero. I consumed this in two sittings and I am looking forward to reading more from Goodman.
