Blackfoot Affair by Doreen Owens Malek

Blackfoot Affair by Doreen Owens Malek

I was pleasantly surprised by this freebie! I will admit the cover is what lured me to read it, but once inside the book, the story captivated me. It had an interesting plot, some intriguing characters including one Jackson Bluewolf, a Native American and adviser on a case where the government is trying to stake claim to an Indian burial ground. Hired to represent the opposing side is Marisa Hancock, an attorney from Maine, who is conflicted on her feelings about the case and Jackson. Although they are pitted against one another in the courtroom, the sparks fly when they cannot deny their attraction and pursue a relationship. Jackson could be […]

I’ll Be Your Drill, Soldier by Crystal Rose

I’ll Be Your Drill, Soldier by Crystal Rose

I loved the storyline; the ideas and world the author created, adored the men, these wonderful brothers in arms, and took all the lessons learned to heart. So, why only 4 stars? At times the writing was basic at best. It didn’t flow as well as it could have, the writing seemed a bit choppy. The constant use of the phrases, “smaller/larger man”, “older/younger” man, “other man”, made the scenes where they were used to describe the characters, feel very impersonal. I’m not one for flowery prose or overly descriptive writing, but had the author embellished a little more, stayed with the point at hand, injected some more mature dialogue, polished […]

The Theory of Attraction by Delphine Dryden

The Theory of Attraction by Delphine Dryden

After a couple of more emotional books I was in need of something more fun and wicked when I stumbled upon the latest What To Read Wednesday blog post by author Ruthie Knox. She highly recommended The Theory of Attraction by Delphine Dryden and I thought I’d give it a try. I am so glad I did!! Camilla has been stalking watching her nerdy neighbor Ivan for quite a while. She just can’t keep her eyes off him but he doesn’t seem to notice her as more than a friendly neighbor. Ivan is not the most social of guys but when he needs help with schmoozing investors on a fundraiser, he turns […]

Star Crossed (Battered Hearts #2) by Kele Moon

Star Crossed (Battered Hearts #2) by Kele Moon

Star Crossed is just… WOW. I can’t even find the words. Since reading an excerpt of Star Crossed a couple of months back, I’ve been excited about this book. When I finally got my fingers on it, I couldn’t wait to get started. First off, the hero and heroines’ names are Romeo and Juliet and the book is called Star Crossed [star-cross’d lovers 😉 get it?]. This could go either way: an amazing book or a really bad and cheesy one. It was AMAZING! We first meet Romeo in Defying the Odds when he fights and loses against Clay, Juliet’s best friend. Romeo eventually saves Mel’s life in Defying the Odds […]
