Review: My Soul to Lose

My Soul to Lose My Soul to Lose by Rachel Vincent
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is the prequel/ novella that kicks off the Soul Screamers series. I have had this series on my tbr for far too long and now I look forward to reading the rest of the books!

I enjoyed this little dip into the Soul Screamers pool, so to speak. It was a nice way to introduce you to the main character and let you see into her ability.

If you like YA paranormal, this is up your alley!

The narrator did a great job, too. I look forward to hearing more of her work.

Review: Come Back To Me

Come Back To Me Come Back To Me by Kathy Coopmans
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Okay, so I hate doing bad reviews. I try to find the positive in a book because I know bad reviews hurt.

So, let me focus on the positives:

-the narrators did a great job. I love Logan McAllister and Lacy Laurel, which is why I grabbed this audio in the first place.

Yeah, I'm out of positives. I wanted to like this, I really did. I just didn't. The characters annoyed me. I got tired of hearing the same thing out of their mouths. Oh, he left me, I can't forgive him. I left her to protect her, I will get her back. I just want to fuck her. I just want to see her naked. I can't be with him because he lied. My sister is the most important person ever no matter how often she screws me over. Blah, blah, blah.

I cant' do it when the book constantly repeats the same mantras. Yeah, they may have used different wording, but it was a book full of the same things.

You may like this story. Don't let my review keep you from reading it. Honestly, maybe it just wasn't my day for romance. I did just come off a fantasy high. Maybe this wasn't the right book to follow up that epic-ness. I will never know. I do know I won't be picking up any more Kathy Coopmans books though.
But if this is your jam, if a husband faking his death to protect his wife is what you want to read about, then this book is for you.
If reading about a woman who is devoted to her druggie, lying sister is for you, then this book is one you should read.
If coming face to face with your dead husband and then denying you still love him--despite just going on about how much you love him--is your thing, then Come Back to Me is the second chance for you.

Review: Addict

Addict Addict by H.Q. Frost
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Hold on to your cowboy hats and get ready to meet the men of Kenshaw Ranch.

Brandt Kenshaw is going to be your new book boyfriend. And if you have your book boyfriends sorted into groups, add Brandt to your favorite Cowboy BBF list. I put him on mine. Hell, I already have Bo and Chase there and I haven't gotten their stories yet!

Jo isn't your typical girl. She's from NY. She's a city girl. She doesn't want to move in with her mother and step-father at all. And when she hears there's a step-brother in the picture? Well, let's just say she's less than thrilled. If she could be more aloof, I'd be hard pressed to learn how. She's the perfect girl for Brandt. And that probably sounds stupid, but she's perfect because he brings out the best in her. It may not seem like it, but he does. He pushes her out of her comfort zone, he pushes her to live her life.
And living isn't what Jo is accustomed to doing.
She's content with not leaving the confines of her room.

Brandt will have you dropping your panties and panting for more. He'll have you bent over a hay bale in no time. He'll have you keeping secrets and he'll have you stealing kisses behind closed doors.

And most importantly, he'll be there to protect you as you fall for him. Because you will fall for Brandt Kenshaw. I know I did.

Give me Bo, Piper Frost. I'm not satisfied with only one cowboy!

Review: Driving Whiskey Wild

Driving Whiskey Wild Driving Whiskey Wild by Melissa Foster
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

"You don't have to be a biker girl. Just be my girl."

Bullet Whiskey is the hero of the Whiskey family, but don't tell him that.

Finlay is the sweet caterer who has decided moving back to her small hometown was the only way to be around family.

Bullet never expected sweet Finlay to give in to his requests for a date, but she did. You would, too. He's all alpha hotness wrapped up in a sexy, tattooed package. And don't forget the beard, the broodiness, and the kindness. Plus, he's a biker. So, yeah. He's a complete package if there ever was one.

Finlay resisted Bullet Whiskey for far longer than any other woman. She knew that, but she also knew he wasn't her type of man. Everything that Bullet exuded was the complete opposite of what she thought she was looking for.

Until it shifted. Until Bullet convinced Finlay he was more than his outer appearance.

And holy, mother of awesome. This story is perfect. Bullet and Finlay are the exact opposites, which complement each other better than ever. Where Bullet closes people off, Finlay opens up. Where Bullet doesn't enjoy the company of others, Finlay is a social butterfly.

This is the third book in The Whiskeys series, but I have not read the previous two books. I never felt lost or confused or like I was missing something. However, I will be going back and starting with the first Whiskey book. These Whiskeys are just too fun to not read. And I'm definitely looking forward to Bones' book!

Review: Man Hands

Man Hands Man Hands by Sarina Bowen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I waited to write this review because I wanted to write something profound. Or at least something that conveys just how funny this book is.
You know, either one.

So, I laughed. I laughed a ton. I laughed out loud. I laughed and laughed and laughed.

You will laugh too.

I guess my only "complaint" is that the characters were older, but they never acted like it. Actually, let's just change this. I don't want to say complaint because why should I complain about a couple who is still young at heart. My forty year old husband still acts like a teenage guy at times. Super grabby, stupid comments, sexual innuendos over things that shouldn't be considered sexual.

Yeah, so no complaints. This book is cute and full of humor. I can't wait to read book two. Mostly because that couple has a hate-filled lust thing going on.
