HARD TO HANDLE – REVIEW

hard to handle coverFrom New York Times bestselling author Christine Warren comes Hard to Handle, the fifth book in her Gargoyles series about a tale that is as old as time…and a love as strong as stone.

The only male among four sisters, Michael Drummond is no stranger to women’s strength and formidable will. But when a fierce woman warrior from another realm bursts into his life, bringing with her a battle between good and evil, Michael is overcome by an explosive dose of desire that only this stunningly beautiful woman can inspire.

The first and only of her kind, Ash is a lone female gargoyle, a creature destined to protect mankind from Demons determined to unleash their darkest forces.
But her bone-deep instinct to do battle is turned off-kilter by her untamed attraction to the dangerously handsome human she can’t stay away from. If they manage to keep the world safe, can they turn the passion crackling between them into a love that will withstand the test of time?

FALL WITH ME BY JAYNE FROST

fall with me teaser 1

 

fall with me cover

 

As the bassist for the band Caged, the last three years have been one, long non-stop party. Sure, I’ve had some regrets. Everyone does. But getting trapped in a relationship isn’t one of them. I know good and well what happens when the attraction fades. I’ve seen it first hand. Love is a zero sum game, so why play? As long as I’m upfront about my feelings, no one gets hurt. Besides, I’m never in one place long enough to worry about tomorrow.
That is, until the band decided to take an extended hiatus in our hometown. That’s when I met Melody Sullivan. She’s the full-package. Whip smart and beautiful, with enough determination to take on anything life has in store. And the best part? Melody shares my philosophy on the fleeting nature of attraction. She doesn’t buy into the whole “happily ever after” crap anymore than I do. We’re perfect for each other. For now. And now is all I want.
With the expectations off the table, I can let my guard down and enjoy her company until the spark dies. And we both know it will. In a week, or a month. But until then, we’ll just keep having fun. The good kind, with lots of sex and no strings attached. And when it’s time to move on, we will. No drawn out goodbyes and no remorse.
That’s the plan, at least.

REVIEW

I was given a copy of this book  by the Author for an honest review.

Fall with Me (Sixth Street Bands Book 2) is a great,  sweet romance. The characters and story line are well-developed. Melody is a nerd, she is also a student and researcher in college. They meet in a  library and Melody finds out that Christian is not your typical rock star. He is a nerd just like her. They have the same tastes in books. Watching their relationship blossom is very sweet. I loved reading their story! The characters and story line are well-developed. If you have not read a book by Jayne Frost you really need too. I recommend  FALL WITH ME  to everyone. I give FALL WITH ME 5/5 STARS.

THE TURN BY KIM HARRISON


#1 New York Times bestselling author Kim Harrison returns to her beloved Hollows series with The Turn, the official prequel to the series that will introduce you to a whole new side of Rachel Morgan’s world as they’ve never seen it before!

Can science save us when all else fails?

Trisk and her hated rival, Kal, have the same goal: save their species from extinction.

But death comes in the guise of hope when a genetically modified tomato created to feed the world combines with the government’s new tactical virus, giving it an unexpected host and a mode of transport. Plague rises, giving the paranormal species the choice to stay hidden and allow humanity to die, or to show themselves in a bid to save them.

Under accusations of scientific misconduct, Trisk and Kal flee across a plague-torn United States to convince leaders of the major paranormal species to save their supposedly weaker kin, but not everyone thinks humanity should be saved, and Trisk fights the prejudices of two societies to prove that not only does humanity have something to offer, but that long-accepted beliefs against women, dark magic, and humanity itself can turn to understanding; that when people are at their worst that the best show their true strength, and that love can hold the world together as a new balance is found.

Absolving His Sins: Trident Security Book 7 (Trident Security Series) (Volume 7) is sinfully hot!!! Finally Carter’s story!! I have to say while reading this book, I had a lot of hot flashes and cold showers during the whole time I read it. * Fans Face* Jordyn and Carter met years ago and had a spectacular night, but when she found his bag of toys, she finds out that he is into the BDSM lifestyle. She believes that anyone in that lifestyle is an abuser. She does not want any association with anyone who abuses people. Now they are together again to find out who leaked the names of the operatives like them. To save their colleagues and to punish the one behind the whole thing. When Carter and Jordyn get together, the sparks are flying between these two. I love the book and the series!! The characters and stories ate well-developed. So, I recommend this book and the whole series to everyone. I give ABSOLVING HIS SINS 5/5 STARS.
