CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE BOOK REVIEW- STILL THE ONE BY JILL SHALVIS

STILL THE ONE
Book Description
Publication Date: April 7, 2015
Love is a dare in the sexy new romance by the award-winning New York Times bestselling author of the Animal Magnetism novels and the Lucky Harbor series…

Darcy Stone is game for anything—except sexy Navy vet and physical therapist AJ Colten, the guy who’d rejected her when she’d needed him most. Now the shoe is on the other foot and he needs her to play nice and help him secure grants for his patients. Unfortunately Darcy can’t refuse. She needs the money to fund her passion project: rescuing S&R dogs and placing them with emotionally wounded soldiers.

AJ admits it—Darcy is irresistible. But he’s already been battle-scarred by a strong-willed, vivacious, adventurous woman like Darcy, and he’s not making the same mistake twice—until he and Darcy are forced to fake a relationship. Growing closer than they’d ever imagined possible, Darcy and AJ have to ask themselves: how much between them is pretend? What’s the real thing? And where does it go from here?

STILL THE ONE is a hit for Jill Shalvis. The characters and story line are well-developed. Darcy has always pushed people away, because if she got too close they would always leave her. AJ is different, he has been there for her. He was there after her accident and has been there for her since. They are thrown together and things get hot and heavy. AJ has had feelings for Darcy for a while. This is such a great book. I loved reading this book, and recommend it to everyone. I give STILL THE ONE 5/ 5 STARS.

BOOK REVIEW – VISION IN SILVER BY ANNE BISHOP


Book Description
Publication Date: March 3, 2015
The New York Times bestselling author of The Black Jewels Trilogy transports readers to a world of magic and political unrest—where the only chance at peace requires a deadly price…

The Others freed the cassandra sangue to protect the blood prophets from exploitation, not realizing their actions would have dire consequences. Now the fragile seers are in greater danger than ever before—both from their own weaknesses and from those who seek to control their divinations for wicked purposes. In desperate need of answers, Simon Wolfgard, a shape-shifter leader among the Others, has no choice but to enlist blood prophet Meg Corbyn’s help, regardless of the risks she faces by aiding him.

Meg is still deep in the throes of her addiction to the euphoria she feels when she cuts and speaks prophecy. She knows each slice of her blade tempts death. But Others and humans alike need answers, and her visions may be Simon’s only hope of ending the conflict.

For the shadows of war are deepening across the Atlantik, and the prejudice of a fanatic faction is threatening to bring the battle right to Meg and Simon’s doorstep…

Excerpt

Delta covered the space between them so quickly Bandit scurried for safer territory. She glared up into eyes that reminded her of a cold winter’s day. “I can’t believe this. You have a lot of gall, Mr. Thorne. The way I see it, you gave up your right to meddle in my affairs when you told me in no uncertain terms that you weren’t looking for a wife. Therefore, what I do is none of your concern. If I want to—”

“Do what?” Cooper brushed her cheek with a fingertip. “Women like you won’t throw your reputation to the wind. You want it all or nothing.”

She glared. “You’re awfully sure of yourself.”

“I know more than you think.” His words were soft. “I see the yearning for permanence in your eyes. Dear God, you’re a difficult woman to forget.”

Cooper tugged her against his lean body, lowered his head, and pressed his sensual lips firmly on hers. The long kiss held passion and promise and warmth. Delta’s breath got caught somewhere between the need for more and wishing she’d stayed in town, far away from men who indulged in contradictory behavior.

Her knees grew weak and she clutched the shirt covering his broad chest to keep from falling as the world tilted on its axis.

As the kiss deepened, their breaths mingled in a heated flurry while blood pounded in her ears. She heard a low moan and realized it came from her. Strange how it sounded so very far away.

Her stomach whirled and dipped as though she’d fallen from a great height. Tingles raced up her spine in some kind of mindless confusion. The anger that had propelled her into dangerous territory melted away and left a strange desire in its wake. Before she could unclench her hands from his shirt to take a step back, he released her.

The kiss ended suddenly, leaving her wanting more.

Cooper’s sinful half smile turned her knees to jelly. “And that, Miss Delta, is how we do things here in Texas.”

REVIEW

TEXAS MAIL ORDER BRIDE is a sweet Texas romance. I always love to read about cowboys in the old  west.  That time period for me is so romantic, even-though it was a very harsh time period.  Who wouldn’t love a cowboy? I keep asking Santa for one and I never get one. Maybe because I am on the naughty list every year. The characters and story line are very well-developed. Delta Dandrige is on her way to Battle Creek, Texas to marry a man she has not met yet. She answered an ad for a mail order bride, but when she gets there Cooper Thorne informs her that he never sent of for a bride or placed an ad. So, Delta gets a job at the local mercantile. After that meeting Cooper cannot seem to get Miss Dandrige off his mind. When she is kidnapped by someone from Cooper’s past, he finds out that he really loves Delta and cannot live without her. This is such a heartwarming tale, and the cowboys even hotter. I give TEXAS MAIL ORDER BRIDE 5/5 stars.

BOOK REVIEW – LIGHT MY FIRE BY G.A. AIKEN

light my fire
Book Description
Publication Date: November 25, 2014
Laugh-out-loud funny–I loved it!” —New York Times bestselling author Thea Harrison
The trouble with humans is that they’re far too sensitive. Forget you put a woman in the local jail for a few months–and she takes it so personally! And yet she is the one trying to assassinate the queen. And now I’m trapped with Elina Shestakova of the Black Bear Riders of the Midnight…gods! That endless name!

But what am I to do? I am Celyn the Charming with direct orders from my queen to protect this unforgiving female.

Even more shocking, this unforgiving female is completely unimpressed by me. How is that even possible? But I know what I want and, for the moment, I want her. And I’m sure that she, like all females, will learn to adore me. How could she not when I am just so damn charming?

Praise for The Dragon Who Loved Me

“A chest thumping, mead-hall rocking, enemy slaying brawl of a good book.” –All Things Urban Fantasy

“Aiken aces another one.” —RT Book Reviews, 4 Stars

LIGHT MY FIRE is another masterpiece by G.A. AIKEN, and a laugh out loud installment to the DRAGON KIN SERIES.  When Elina Shestakova is sent to assassinate the White Dragon Queen, Rhiannon the White, she just cannot do it. Celyn the Charming who is part of the Dragon Queen’s guard, is tasked with taking care of Shestakova, and puts her in jail. He then forgets her for eight months, when the Queen decides to use her to get an Alliance with Anne Atli ruler of all the tribes of the Outerplains tribes. Celyn the Charming is chosen to accompany Elina to the outerplains. This book will have you laughing out loud at inappropriate times, that will have people looking at you strangely. It has all the characters that we love, especially Annwyl the Bloody. The family that brawls, argues, and drinks together, stays together, even if they do not want to. I love this book and this series, and I give it 5/5 stars. If you have not read this series, I urge you to do so.
