Stranded with a Book Welcome Betsy Talbot! Take it away Betsy! Ciao, bella! You look beautiful today. There is a twinkle in your eye, and I can’t tell if that is because you have a secret or because you’re happy to hear from me. I hope it is both! As you know from reading Wild Rose, I am Chef Aldo, the most famous chef in Italy and owner of the most magnificent mustache in the world. Well, maybe I’m not […]

 After the first two books tying me into knots I really wanted to get Pace Drake’s story like yesterday. Pace comes off early on as a playboy taking on a new woman each night of the week. But even in the last book, Filthy Beautiful Love, we saw a unexpected change in him that continues to grow within this book. Pace is Colton’s younger brother, often thought of as young, but really he has made his own way into the world. […]

Once in a while a book makes the reader catch her breath in surprise and then forget there is a world outside the book.  The author’s heroine blazes off the first pages with color and fire assaulting the reader’s senses with her wild indomitable spirit and that has been battered, bruised and beaten down, but never conquered until she meets her match in the warlord who comes looking for the prize- The Kingmaker! The story opens with young Cat, one […]

This story had a lot of promise with an interesting premise of a bachelorette party of a ranch full of studs. Unfortunately, it has some missteps that had me scratching my head and hoping the next books in the series turn out better. Hanna Stevens is on the cusp of getting married, but it isn’t all roses in this deal. How do you marry someone you don’t love, let alone like? Well, when her daddy gets into financial problems, Zack, […]

Carrying on after the explosive excitement of book one, the spotlight shifts from Kyle and Carla to another member of the team, Richie ‘Q’ Goldman and the newest female Delta, Melissa ‘the Cat’ Moore.   The elite tough members of the Delta team’s story is told with detail, passion, and a rush of adrenaline. This is book two in the Delta Force series and while it could be read out of order in a pinch, it builds on the book that […]

I saw this book reviewed by Debbie @ The Reading Frenzy blog and it sounded fantastic.  Imagine my thrill when I won an audio copy of this intense and intriguing YA Dystopian. The world of this story is in our future after a plague hits the world and decimates the population only to return every twenty years or so.  Old government and society falls only for new city-state governments to take over in certain parts of the world and the […]

This was one of the TBR vote books for May that didn’t win, but I was in the mood for it and squeezed it into my reading schedule anyway. I’ve enjoyed this author’s western paranormal dystopian Demon Outlaw series and was tickled to see this western sci-fi romance.  Blending elements is a gift for this author as well as her tough characters that have the true western spirit.  The book had some creative elements, an intrigue, and strong characters.  The […]

Talk about a book that would make my Top Ten ‘Need This Book Yesterday’ list, this is one.  After reading the Everything I Left Unsaid duo, I was in love with this hard, gritty series and was panicked that it would be over.  I was so curious about Dylan’s darker, shadowy biker brother, Max, and wanted his story so much.  Wish granted! Even though this one moves into a new story arc with Max taking the spotlight, I would highly […]

So we had a tie with the To Be or Not to Be… Read for June.  This was not a travesty.  I wanted to read both and had the time so I did.  Thanks all for two very wonderful reads.  Be still on heart, two devastatingly hot heroes in one go. Blending of sci-fi, dystopian, and military romance is guaranteed to grab my attention and, in this case, provide a rousing-good story.  This was a new to me author and […]
