REVIEW- ROLLING LIKE THUNDER BY VICKI LEWIS THOMPSON

rolling like thunder
The last cowboy…

All work and no play makes Finn a dull cowboy. Since his divorce, Finn O’Roarke has put all of his time into his Seattle-based microbrewery, unaware that back in Wyoming, his foster parents are on the verge of ruin. Now Finn and his foster brothers are trying to save Thunder Mountain Ranch—and only one woman can help them turn it all around.

Marketing guru Chelsea Trask has had a thing for the gorgeous brewer for ages. When they work together at Thunder Mountain Ranch, however, she starts to see Finn’s cowboy side. And it’s irresistibly hot. Best of all, the attraction that’s been sizzling beneath the surface has erupted in some very sexy situations. But is Chelsea falling for the real Finn…or for the cowboy he used to be?

Vicki Lewis Thompson has another hit on her hands with ROLLING LIKE THUNDER. The characters and story line are very well-developed and we also see other character from past books. Chelsea is an investor in Finn’s bar. She is going to Thunder Mountain Ranch to help save it from being foreclosed on. They are going to the Last  Chance Ranch to try and round up investors for Thunder Mountain Ranch. As they get closer together on this trip, they start to have strong feelings for each other. Finn does not want to commit to the relationship, for he believes that he cannot let loose of having full control of his business and the relationship would suffer. Chelsea has to show him that he can delegate the smaller day to day tasks to free up his time. This is such a great book, that I loved every minute of reading it. I recommend this book to everyone and give ROLLING LIKE THUNDER 5/5  STARS.

URBAN FANTASY “Revenant: A Greywalker Novel” BY KAT RICHARDSON

revenant by kat richardson
Book Description
Publication Date: August 5, 2014
Harper Blaine was your average small-time PI until she died—for two minutes. Now Harper is a Greywalker, treading the thin line between the living world and the paranormal realm. And these abilities are landing her all sorts of “strange” cases….

Turmoil, sickness, and destruction are sweeping through Europe—and its effects are being felt all the way across the world in Seattle. Harper Blaine and her lover, Quinton, suspect that Quinton’s father, James Purlis—and his terrifying Ghost Division—are involved.

Following a dark trail of grotesque crimes and black magic across the Old World, the pair slowly draws closer to their quarry. But finding and dismantling the Ghost Division won’t be enough to stop the horror that Purlis has unwittingly set in motion.

An ancient and forgotten cult has allied with Quinton’s mad father. And their goals are far more nightmarish than Harper and Quinton—or even Purlis—could ever imagine.

The pursuit leads to Portugal, where the desecrated tomb of a sleeping king and a temple built of bones recall Harper’s very first paranormal case and hold clues to the cult’s true intentions. Harper and Quinton will need all the help they can get to avert a necromantic cataclysm that could lay waste to Europe and drag the rest of the world to the brink of war.

BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESY OF AMAZON

I love this series, and this is a great ending to it for now. Harper was told by Quinton to go to Portugal, but don’t let anyone know that she has left Seattle. She automatically goes to Carlos for he would know how to get out of the country quietly.Quinton tells her that his niece has been kidnapped by his Father. Now they have to rescue her before they do something ghastly to her. They have necromancers who want to create a hell dragon. They have to try to stop it before all HELL breaks loose. Harper had to save Carlos by giving him some of her blood, which has enabled him to go out in the sun. It has made him temporarily mortal. Also in this case Harper will lose a body part when she is taken by the enemy. This is such a well-written book and has well-developed characters. I love this world that Kat Richardson has created, and I will miss it for now. I will have to revisit it every now and then. I give REVENANT 5/5 stars.  I recommend this book and series to everyone.

BOOK REVIEW “RIDING HIGH” BY VICKI LEWIS THOMPSON

RIDING HIGH BY VICKI LEWIS THOMPSON

Book Description

June 1, 2014

Saddle up!

There ain’t a rider that can’t be thrown. And large-animal veterinarian Regan O’Connelli was thrown hard when he discovered his fiancée with his best friend. Now he’s starting his life over at the Last Chance Ranch, run by the tightly knit Chance clan. But damned if his libido hasn’t perked up over the spirited redhead who looks a lot like trouble….

Lily King is the queen of anti-structure. Turns out, that makes running a horse sanctuary a challenge. Regan’s help is exactly what Lily needs—not to mention the seriously sexy sparks that are flying between them. Now she just has to convince this fallen cowboy to dust himself off and get back in the saddle…and into her bed!

BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESY OF AMAZON

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

RIDING HIGH is a fun, fast, sexy read. I always enjoy a Vicki Lewis Thompson novel.  Lily King is way over her head with her horse sanctuary. She has taken in more than she can handle. When Regan O’Connelli points it out she knows he is right. When she meets him and he does not take off his sun glasses, she knows that is has been hurt and he is protecting himself. She knows that she does not want to be his rebound girl. When he moves in to help her with the horses so that she can adopt them out, things start to heat up.

Regan was hurt when he found his fiancée with his best friend, but being around Lily he has done a lot of soul-searching and has come to the fact that he really never was in love with his fiancée. So now he has to convince Lily that he is over his past and he wants her in his future permanently. When his best friend shows up and wants to talk to him, it could destroy his relationship. I really loved this book and give it 4/ 5 stars.
