I love football and what better way to spend you day when football is not on but to read a really good story involving the quarterback. This was a really good enjoyable read. Loved the charaters and their quirks made me laugh. Loved how they both loved the pup and neither wanted to give him up. Glad I finally found the time to sit down and read this book as I would have missed out if I hadn't.

What did you like best about Alpha Wolf's Pet, Kept? What did you like least?
It was different than any other paranormal series I've read.

BUTTERFLY STYLE: Bianca Sommerland

Freedom has always been a priority for Kelsey “Chicklet” Galloway. From choosing bartending over a ‘real’ career, to avoiding monogamy like the plague, she’s always paved her own way, living her life in a way that makes her happy. As a Domme she is content to give a lucky sub—or two—a night to remember, but she’s never met anyone who made her consider sharing her carefree world.

Until she meets a woman who desperately needs a little taste of it.

Officer Laura Tallant has her whole life in order, is looking at a promotion on the police force in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and finally has some time off for a much needed vacation. When her plan to find some release with her former Master falls through, she’s left searching for an alternative. And finds one that fulfills more than her desire to escape reality for a brief, blissful moment.

Chicklet makes her feel more alive than anyone she’s ever known, but nothing about her follows the rules of what Laura is supposed to want. The last time Laura put her heart on the line, she was left broken and alone. A chance at love might rip open old scars. Or give her a safe place to finally let them heal.

Justice for Boone Justice for Boone by Susan Stoker
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved getting to see more of Hayden and not just the Hayden who is the deputy. I loved how Boone helped her realize she was more than just a deputy she was a beautiful woman too. Wonderful love story with just enough drama to keep it a good story. I must admit I cheered Boone on when he finally realized he had to take care of Dana and gave her a good one.
Another wonderful read by this author

Cover REVEAL: Scarlet Stone: Jewel E. Ann

SScover.jpg
Title: Scarlet Stone
Author: Jewel E Ann
Genre: A romantic suspense standalone
Release Date: December 10th, 2016
Synopsis:
“My name is Scarlet Stone, and my biggest fear is that someday I will find what I want most in life, and it will be impossible to steal.”
What happens when life just stops? When one moment makes you question your entire existence?
Scarlet Stone is a third-generation thief who has everything: a doting fiancé, a spacious London flat, and a legitimate job offer. In a single breath, everything becomes nothing, and she finds herself on a plane to Savannah, Georgia in search of the meaning of life.
After securing a six-month lease for a beachfront house on Tybee Island, Scarlet changes the way she looks, thinks, eats—basically her entire outlook on life. She needs peace, but what she gets is a housemate who looks like Thor, acts like a warden, and smells her proximity like a Bloodhound.
Theodore Reed is a carpenter and perfectionist with a body built of steel, a black, hollow heart, and a hunger for revenge. He doesn’t like company, girly-smelling crap, and British accents.
He resents every breath she takes.  
She’s fascinated by his every move.
In time, they discover their coexistence is toxic, their physical attraction is electric, the secrets they keep mean the difference between life and death, and the only truth they share is that everything is a lie.
“Over eighty-five percent of the world's population believes in a higher power, yet, very few people believe in miracles.”

Review: Her Halloween Treat

Her Halloween Treat Her Halloween Treat by Tiffany Reisz
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Made me remember all the days I enjoyed reading a good Harlequin story cause this one of them.
it was a cute, sweet and funny read. Although it did had some sad spots they were just part of the story line and didn't bog you down with sadness. This is one of those need a good quick read or a rainey day treat. I always enjoy a good book and glad I decided to splurge and buy myself the print version as their is just something about turning the page of a book that just doesn't feel the same on a kindle.

Review: Taking Charge

Taking Charge Taking Charge by Ruth Cardello
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love this series. I do believe this is my favorite series that Ruth has. With every book I grow more and more fond of all the characters I met or see again in the stories. I adore the little family of friends she has created for us and I'm so glad David and Lucy finally got their story. This is one of those stories that you could enjoy if you haven't read the others in the series but I think you would enjoy it more if you have read the others as it would make you understand the characters better.
I loved how patient David was but knew when he had to stand his ground. I so hope there is going to be more stories in this series as I would hate to see it end

I've got a new author to go to for my Fantasy/Sci-fi books now. I honestly wasn't sure if I'd like this story as no offense ment but some writers just can't go from romance to Fantasy/Sci-Fi. Well I shouldn't have worried at all as this story was awesome and I loved it. I love reading romance but I've been missing my Fantasy/Sci-fi as most of the authors that I used to read in that genre have passed away(yes I've been reading for a long time) I am happy to report that one of my favorite romance authors is now one of my favorite Fantasy/Sci-Fi authors also.

Review: Hidden

Hidden Hidden by Eva Gordon
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Audio review

"Decent story line"
What did you like best about Alpha Wolf's Pet, Hidden? What did you like least?
I liked how the author did werewolfs but made them different than any other stories I have read so far.
I did feel like the author needs to be a little smoother on how she used all the elements she had in the story. Needed to blend them a little better

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
I liked the ending it didn't leave me hanging even though I know there is a book 2 and 3. I wasn't left with a cliffhanger

Did Meghan Kelly do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?
Yes but I felt like if the story was a little smoother she would have done a better job narratoring. I did like how she did the different voices

Any additional comments?
This is worth a credit and my time listening to it. I am already wanting to listen to the next book in the series as I liked the characters

Duncan Wilde has avoided long-term relationships very well since his fiancĂ©e left him wounded in the hospital years ago. That one harsh lesson—that he needed to guard his heart—has stuck with him for years. Besides, he's a beat up old Marine well past his time for love. The fiery haired doctor from Kansas City seems to think otherwise, though. Too bad she's so damn young.
Alex Hartfield grew up as a military brat, but she sees something in Duncan that makes her think of permanence and starting a family.  She wants someone to come home to every night and love, and he's the first man that makes her guarded heart race with hope and excitement.

Now… as they try to understand the dangerous incidents going on around them, they fight to find common ground. But it seems as if fate has some tricks up her sleeve.

Then he looked up, his dark eyes in shadow, and Alex remembered how much she wasn't wearing. Though she worked out fairly regularly, she still tended to be a little leaner than was perhaps good for her. With her hours and not so great eating schedule, it was hard for her to gain weight. Her boobs had always been a nice C though, which men seemed to appreciate.
She dropped the towel beside the tub and used the steps to climb in, aware his eyes were on her the entire time. Gasping, she sank down, loving the feel of the heat. "Oh, damn this feels good."
He smiled in agreement and rested his head back against the rim. "As soon as I get in, I can feel the tension in my tendons easing. It's one of the few things that actually helps with my pain."
Heat had wonderful recuperative properties, so she wasn't surprised he enjoyed it so much. They used baths much the same way at the hospital where she worked.
Their legs bumped under the water and she felt him shift away, but they were still in close proximity to each other. Alex wanted to slide over and lean her head against his shoulder, but even that might be too much, too fast. It was a very strange phenomenon, but she felt like she belonged with him. They matched somehow. She wasn't sure how exactly, but it was enough to keep her looking for ways to get in.
"I wanted to thank you for going with me tonight," he told her quietly. "You kind of got sucked into the drama."
Alex chuckled. "Well, I don't mind drama. And I was with you, so it was all good."
He gave her a narrow-eyed look. "I'm not a catch, Alex."
She shrugged, knowing he was trying to warn her off. "I'm not after a catch. I'd be happy with a guy who knew how to show a girl a good time."
Grinning, she allowed herself to slip under the water, then lifted back up, slicking her hair back. Duncan continued to stare at her, as if he still couldn't believe her words. Well, if he wouldn't believe her words, maybe he would believe her actions.
In spite of her feeling that they should move slowly, she pushed across the suddenly small tub. Making sure to keep her hips angled out so that there was no chance she would bump into him, she rested her hands on his strong shoulders. His hands came up to hold her ribs and he gave her the perfect support she needed to lean in for a soft kiss. For a moment she feared he would push her away, but he didn't.
He tasted of...she wasn't sure what. But it was minty and spicy and exciting and intriguing. In spite of her plans to keep it short, Alex lingered. With one hand she reached up, cupping his lean cheek. It bristled with beard hairs, but she smoothed down, with the lay of the grain. Feeling a little daring she reached out with the tip of her tongue, tasting his lower lip.
For most of this Duncan held completely still and let her do what she wanted, not responding to her kiss. But when she tasted him, licking along his lips, he seemed to give in to some inner struggle. One of his hands moved down to cup her hip, pulling her deeper into the water, and the other hand reached up to cup the back of her head. Then, using his grip on her hair, he took control of the kiss.

Dog Tags for Christmas

About the Book

Men and women in the armed forces are often away from home, family and their beloved pets for the holidays. But this year, three service members will be home for Christmas in heartwarming military homecoming stories by New York Times Bestselling Authors Lindsay McKenna, KaLyn Cooper and J.M. Madden.

Snowflake’s Gift by Lindsay McKenna


Two veterans—one human, one canine—have returned to Montana to recover from the traumas of war. Former Army Ranger Nick Conway depended on his WMD dog Snowflake to help him navigate IEDs on the battlefield. Now he needs his best friend to help him cope with his PTSD and acclimate to civilian life. When he meets Holly McGuire and agrees to help her deliver meals to the elderly, her inner light calls to him, but his demons hold him back from giving in to his attraction. But Snowflake takes an immediate shine to the kindhearted Holly—and he has never led Nick down the wrong path.

SEAL's Christmas Dream by J.M. Madden


When Veterinarian Willow James' office is broken into, it's natural that she turn to her soul mate, former Navy SEAL K9 handler Joe Flynn, to track down the culprits. The trail leads to a notorious Pit-Bull fighting ring. It may take a Christmas miracle and a helpful nudge from an old partner to get everyone home safely.

Noel's Puppy Power by KaLyn Cooper

Tanner Hill is better at communicating with animals than women. That might be why he hasn’t had a second date in over two years. He’s also been extremely busy with his kennel that has become the premier training facility, specializing in supplying dogs to veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Then again, there is this psychologist he can’t get out of his head, or his heart.

Dr. Bailey Conrad would never allow the loss of half her right leg to an IED in Iraq to stop her. Every day at the VA hospital, she sees patients who have lost so much more to the war effort. It’s her goal in life to help as many vets as possible to find a 'new normal', because she knows firsthand, it’s the internal scars that can be the most difficult to heal.

Review: Embattled Ever After

Embattled Ever After Embattled Ever After by J.M. Madden
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Every time I read one of J.M.'s books in this series I remember why I love her writing. She gives us a wonderful story while dealing with the reality of what happened to our wounded warriors after they come home. We become involved with the set of characters we have come to know and love. Getting to see one we have known deserved someone finally get his other half was just outstanding. While there are some hard scenes in this book it's real life as unfortunately things that are tragic do happen as the world is not all sunshine and roses.

Blurb:
Book 1 in the No Rival series  For months, Aubree has been obsessed with two men—best friends, Max and Ryan. She’s resigned herself to having her desires be nothing more than a late night fantasy. When the pair invites her to a weekend party hosted by a famous MMA champion, Drew Alexander, she accepts without a qualm. She never expects the two men plan to make her secret longings into reality. Unfortunately, that’s only half their agenda. When Aubree learns the men’s true intentions, she turns to Drew for help.  Drew is unlike anyone she’s ever met. He’s fun and playful. Dark and brooding. He’s everything she’s been searching for rolled up in a delicious package. Unfortunately, Max and Ryan aren’t finished with her yet. Aubree has to choose—does she cling to the friendship she’s had with Max and Ryan, or risk everything on one man who could make all her dreams come true?
