BOOK REVIEW- GONE FOR YOU BY JAYNE FROST


Book Description
Publication Date: April 28, 2015
As the guitarist for the rock band Caged, I know the rules: no relationships. No complications. Leave ‘em smiling when you go, but always go. Besides, it’s not like I’m ever in one place for more than a few days at a time. As the next hottest thing out of Austin, the band and I are riding the wave, and the music is all that matters.

Until her…

Lily Tennison has “complication” written across her beautiful face. But I can’t get involved. The timing’s all wrong. But she’s under my skin, and I can’t resist her troubled eyes and sweet smile. And I do have a little time to kill. Not much, just a few days in Dallas.

So I’ll scratch the itch and move on, like I always do.

Simple, right?

Note: You won’t need to turn up the heat—Sixth Street Bands Romances have plenty of steamy fun. This story can be read as a stand-alone but is part of the Sixth Street Bands music scene.

BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESY OF AMAZON

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

GONE FOR YOU is a great start to this series. The characters and story line are very well-developed. I cannot wait to read the next book in this series. Cameron is part of the band Caged, and when he meets Lily, he knows he has to have her. Lily doesn’t know what to do with Cameron, but for one weekend she will follow her heart. This is such a great book, and I recommend it to everyone. This is a sweet and funny story that you will be rooting for them to get together. I give GONE FOR YOU 5/5 STARS.

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.

The Queen of Cowboys does it again, with a funny, feuding families good time. THE TROUBLE WITH TEXAS COWBOYS has down to earth characters and a great storyline. What do you do when you are stuck between two families who are feuding?  Try to not get involved in it, but when they constantly put you in the middle, you fight back. Jill has come to Burnt Boot, Texas to help her Aunt Gladys with her ranch, but she doesn’t know that she has hired Sawyer as her foreman. Now they are living in the bunkhouse together, and things get a little heated. Now they are both being stalked by both families as marriage material. When the Pig War starts and pulls both Jill and Sawyer in the middle, Jill fights back. They also have to stick together to survive this feud. I love Carolyn Browns books. Who wouldn’t with sexy cowboys. This is a great book and I recommend it to everyone. I give THE TROUBLE WITH TEXAS COWBOYS 5/5 stars.

a cursed bloodline by cecy robson
Book Description
Publication Date: November 18, 2014
The Weird Girls return in another edge-of-your-seat novel from Cecy Robson! Just when Celia thinks the supernatural world can’t turn deadlier, a new rival emerges, proving just how dangerous a power-hungry were can be.

Since being cursed with unique abilities, Celia Wird and her three sisters have fought the most bloodthirsty preternaturals in the Lake Tahoe region. But Celia’s greatest threat is someone she would have never suspected: Anara, a werewolf Elder who has allowed his hatred for Celia to spiral out of control. In a play for dominance, Anara tortures Celia and gives her an ultimatum: sever her mate bond with pureblood were Aric—or Anara will kill everyone she loves.

From the instant they met, Celia and Aric have shared an attraction that cannot be tamed. So keeping Aric away is impossible, and Aric would sooner die than allow anyone to hurt the woman he loves. Misha, master vampire and Celia’s sworn protector, also finds his way into the chaos, seeking blood from those who have harmed her.

Now Celia and her sisters are caught in the middle of a war driven by lust, fueled by hatred, and destined to end in tragedy. For Anara is a force to be reckoned with, and he will not succumb without robbing Celia of those who hold her heart.

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

Where do I start on this book. There was so much action going on that it literally had me on the edge of my seat. A CURSED BLOODLINE is a great installment to this series. Celia is happy that she is now with Aric, and carrying his child. That is all about to change. Anara part of the alliance has warned Celia to break her bond with Aric or he will kill him and everyone she holds dear to her heart. She agrees and everywhere she turns Aric is there. When Misha is taken and she is now in charge of his vampires and all his businesses, she goes to the Alliance for their help in getting him back. Anara refuses and she goes to El Salvador herself with some of the vampires. They rescue him and the witch who held him escapes.  When Aric finds out that Anara was behind Celia breaking their mate bond, he tries to kill him. Anara escapes and joins the enemy, the Tribe. During this fight Aric goes moon crazy and Celia is the only one who can save him, because everyone else wants to kill him. This is such a great story, with well-developed characters and storyline. I cannot wait to see what Cecy Robson has in store for us next.  A CURSED BLOODLINE has so much action in it that you will not be bored with this book. I give it 5/5 stars.

If you have not read any books in this series, I urge you to do so. You will not be disappointed. Outstanding writing for a great series.
