Confession; I have mad love for the Weird Girls series and author Cecy Robson. When I got my hands on an early copy of Cursed by Destiny there may or may not have been a lot of fangirl squealing. Once again, Robson had me in her grips as she took me through this action–packed installment that gave us more of Aric and Celia while having us battle the Tribe. Mini review: My thoughts on closing the book-intense, kick-ass, action-packed and Cecy Robson is evil, evil, evil.
I am such a fan of the On Dublin Street series, and this tight, close-knit group of friends and their families. Before Jamaica Lane delivers Olivia and Nate’s story and oh, man I swallowed this one whole, it consumed me with the need to have my HEA. The tale was hot, bittersweet, intense, and so dang sensual I melted on the floor. This was the type of read where I needed total quiet, and a comfy blanket to snuggle with. Mini review: sensual, with witty banter, angst, heart-breaking moments and a love story you cannot help but embrace.
Freak of Nature by Julia Crane drew me in with its gorgeous cover and gripping synopsis. The idea of cyborgs and robotic limb replacement fascinates me. As the first book in the IFICS series, Freak of Nature, offered an engaging beginning but left me wishing for more depth. Mini review: a light science fiction read wrapped in a good romance.
Maybe I am creepy, or maybe I should blame Darynda Jones but I have a thing for Reapers. Grave Destinations is the second book in the Grave Series by Lori Sjoberg. Her twist on why these souls are reapers, combined with suspense and romance have made this a fun series. Each can be read as a standalone, but each time we learn a little more about Fate, and the organization running this elite team of Reapers. Mini review: spicy but clean, suspenseful and action packed.
You may or may not know this, but I am a baseball fan. *go Phillies*, so I was excited to crack open, Let Me Be The One, the sixth book in Bella Andre’s Sullivan series. This novel features baseball star, Ryan Sullivan and a friendship to lover’s trope that made me melt into a puddle of mush. Mini review: a hot, sweet romance with loveable down to earth characters.
When I saw, the cover *yum* and Lori Foster I couldn’t resist grabbing Turning Up the Heat. This anthology offers three romances. One was sweet; one was hot and one was so hot it sizzled; in fact I told my hubby I was reading porn. Two of them held me completely captive and the third was cute making this collection a win. Mini review: escape, hot, sexy romances, perfect for reading by the fire.
Big Sky Secrets is the sixth and final book in the Parable, Montana series (previously named Swoon-worthy Cowboys) by Linda Leal Miller. I have enjoyed the journey, and hope we will one day get to visit Parable and its inhabitants again. This tale belongs to Landry Sutton and Ria Manning. This was one of my favorites as these two strong, flawed characters healed and found their slice of happy. Mini review: sweet, hot and thoroughly entertaining
The Christmas Cookie Collection is four delightful novellas featuring characters from Lori Wilde’s First Love Cookie Club novels. All were previously published as Christmas Cookie Chronicles and are now available in this single collection. Heart-warming tales of romance, friendship and small-town charm make each of the tales a holiday delight. Mini review: heart-warming, and romantic it offers delightful tales that allow you to curl up and escape from the hustle and bustle of the season.
