“Too funny for words.” –All About Romance

They share love, laughter, and a passion that burns up the night.

But can he share the secrets that threaten their marriage?

Nick and Paula DeCello are getting divorced in seven days, even though they love each other dearly. His overprotectiveness has finally become too much for her, and there’s something painful locked deep inside him. Desperate, Nick takes the advice of a quirky, old fortune teller to find his wife’s “heart craving.” To Nick, that means sexual fantasies.

Armed with a hilarious collection of advice books, he embarks on a wild, funny seduction of Paula that proves there’s nothing wrong with their relationship in the bedroom. When it comes to giving her what her heart really craves–soul-sharing communication–he’ll have to take a big step outside his comfort zone.

BOOK REVIEW FOR “RIDING HOME” BY VICKI LEWIS THOMPSON

Book Description

Perfect is good.

Imperfect is even better…

City-slicker lawyer Jeannette Trenton is about as welcome at the Last Chance Ranch as a rattlesnake at a square dance. She’s there to atone for one major mistake. But Jeannette’s pretty sure righting her big wrong does not include thinking lustful thoughts about the ranch’s new cowhand….

Zach Powell knows Jeannette’s type—a wound-up-tight perfectionist with one eye on her email at all times. Heck, that used to be him. She needs to shake it loose, face her imperfections and allow herself to make mistakes. There’s definitely no mistake about the wickedly sexy vibe between them. This gal is gonna have to “cowboy up”…or miss the ride of her life!

Vicki Lewis Thompson is a great writer and I always enjoy her books, but  RIDING HOME  did not keep my interest like the previous books. I still enjoyed it, but it took me a lot longer to finish. I seems like the writer is running out of ideas for this series.  Zach Powell has left Los Angeles for the quiet life. He had gotten tired of the jaded life and quite being a contract lawyer. He does not want to practice law again so he does not fall into bad habits again. When he meets Jeannette he feels that instant attraction with her, but will their relation go anywhere?   She is a lawyer and he does not want anything to do with being a lawyer. The characters are well-developed, so I give RIDING HOME 3/5 STARS. It just did not capture my attention like the others did.

BOOK REVIEW: “KISSING WITH FANGS” BY ASHLYN CHASE

Book Description
Publication Date: March 4, 2014
There’s Something He’s Never Told Her…

When her workplace burned down, Claudia should’ve taken it as a sign to move on—and not just professionally. She’s been secretly lusting after her mysterious boss, Anthony Cross, for years. There’s no way she should agree to help him rebuild if she wants to keep her heart intact, and yet it’s impossible to stay away…

The flames that destroyed Anthony Cross’s beloved bar are nothing compared to the heat he feels every time he lays eyes on Claudia. But he can’t have her—it’s against paranormal law for a vampire to date a human. Besides, he has some dangerous enemies, and one in particular already has her sights on Claudia. He owes her the truth—both about his feelings and his vampire nature—which means their lives are about to get hotter than ever…

Praise for Flirting Under a Full Moon:

“Hot sex scenes and a breezy tone with a nice, happily-ever-after ending makes…a fun read.”—Booklist

“A wonderful start to a very lighthearted series.”—Night Owl Romance Reviewer Top Pick

BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESY OF AMAZON

KISSING WITH FANGS is a sexy, fun, paranormal romance. I have enjoyed all of Ashlyn Chase’s books, and they always seem to bring a smile to my face. Claudia is harboring a few secrets. Anthony has always been in love with Claudia since they met. Now that the bar has been burned to the ground, Claudia and Anthony are at loose ends. When Anthony goes to Claudia’s apartment he finds out about one of her secrets, that she is an alcoholic.  He wonders how she was able to keep it a secret for so long while working in the bar. In light of Claudia’s alcoholism he decides not to reopen the bar and decides to open a tea shop. Paranormal s are being kidnapped and they don’t know who is doing it.  The characters and storyline are well-developed. I also enjoyed seeing other characters from other books. I enjoyed reading  KISSING WITH FANGS, and I give it 4/5 stars.

MY NEPHEW RECOMMENDED A NEW AUTHOR AND SERIES.


 AWAKENING (THE DARK RITUALS, BOOK1)

BY CATRINA BURGESS

POSSESSION (THE DARK RITUALS, BOOK 2)

My Nephew Wendell, who is my oldest nephew, just recently discovered this author on htt://www.wattpad.com and recommended this author  Catrina Burgess to me. He said that her books remind him of Kat Richardson‘s Greywalker (Greywalker, Book 1) books. He said that they are just a little bit darker. He cannot wait for book 3, for her writing is awesome. I have it on my list of books to read, now when I will get the time to read it that is a whole new story.

I have joined wattpad so I can see what authors are up and coming and if there are any good books out there. Apparently there is, because my nephew has just about read everything on wattpad. He has been reading 3-5 books a day. When he cannot sleep he will read all night long. I can say he now reads faster than I do now. I can usually read 3-5 books a week, but a day, not gonna happen,  Here lately it is a struggle to just stay awake when I get home from work.  That is the reason I have not posted in a few days. I get home, eat, sit down and get ready to post and before I know it, I am fast asleep. Usually someone has to wake me up to go to bed.

When I go to bed, I think I will read for a bit and before I know it I am rolling over onto my kindle. I have been doing that a lot lately.  I guess my iron is low again, because this happens when it gets low. I am anemic and have to take iron pills daily. Sometimes I forget, and I will have to double up on them.  I am getting off subject. Check out this author Catrina Burgess, I know I will. I guess that will be all for now, and I will talk with you tomorrow.

When Vivian’s father suddenly shows up back into her life, everything goes to hell fast. She is suddenly on the run with a guy who claims to be a werewolf. Jason has been sent by her father to bring her back to the pack, and when she gets there she has a short time with her father before they are attacked and he is killed. The characters are very likeable, and the story line was great. This was a fun read, with a few twists and turns in the plot. And the suspense of who betrayed the pack had you guessing until the end. I would recommend this to my friends and family. I really enjoyed the book, so I give it 5/5 stars.
