Loved it! Cold Pursuit is a gripping, intense, and action packed romantic suspense thriller that reads like a great movie. My only complaint is the same I had with the first book, A Cold Dark Place, which is that I felt like the ending was a bit rushed for the H/h, and I wanted a more definitive HEA. Still, it’s an excellent romantic suspense read, and I’m really enjoying this series. I can’t wait for the next book, Cold Light of Day, to come out!...more
Loved this!!!! Everything about it was just fabulous! David was such a perfect, swoonalicious, husband5 stars – Contemporary/Rock Star Romance Novella
Loved this!!!! Everything about it was just fabulous! David was such a perfect, swoonalicious, husband-worthy hero, the memos were clever, saucy, witty, and sexy, the romance was sigh-inducing, sweet, and steamy, and it had just the right amount of sensual, hot sex scenes.
Introduction : In which I, David Rivera, set out the reasons why you, Thea Arsana, should make an honest man out of me.
First and foremost, I am insanely, deeply, forever in love with you. Since you admit to feeling the same, roadblock number one ceases to exist.
Second, your mother likes me. She kissed me on the cheek this morning and told me to hurry things along, start working on grandbabies for her. Your father, meanwhile, no longer gives me the stinkeye (most of the time). I think he’s resigned to my existence.
You know my parents adore you and both my brothers are in love with you. Your sweet little sisters, meanwhile, seem to find me giggle- worthy, and Molly thinks we’re perfect for one another. Ergo (I looked that up in the dictionary), there are no viable family reasons why we can’t get married.
Third, all our close friends love that we’re together. We don’t want to break their hearts by not going all the way, do we?
Finally, and most importantly, I want you to be mine in every way. I want every single man on the planet to know you belong to me, and every single woman to know I belong to you. Playing with you, arguing with you over silly, everyday things, making love with you, growing grumpy and wrinkly together with you (while continuing to have mind- blowing sex at least three times a day), that’s my idea of heaven.
4 ½ stars – Contemporary/New Adult/Rock Star Romance

I really enjoyed this one! Jimmy is such a yummy, complex, narcissistic, tortured, broodylicious bad boy asshat and Lena is quirky, genuine, amusing, and snarky, and they were just so much darn fun together! I really, badly wanted Jimmy’s POV and for him to appreciate Lena more and (view spoiler)[realize and admit his feelings a lot sooner. (hide spoiler)] I also felt like there needed to be more time spent on them as an actual “couple”. The ending and epilogue just didn’t quite satisfy in that regard. Still, it’s a great read and my favorite of the series! And hopefully we’ll get to see more of Lena and Jimmy together in Ben’s book, Deep.["br"]>["br"]>...more
This quote from Augustus Waters in The Fault in Our Stars perfectly expresses my feelings abou5++++ Infinite Stars – Contemporary/YA Fiction/Romance
This quote from Augustus Waters in The Fault in Our Stars perfectly expresses my feelings about this book.
“My thoughts are stars I can’t fathom into constellations.”
I’m just incapable of coherently and intelligently expressing my myriad, jumbled mix of thoughts and emotions about this astoundingly beautiful, resonant, insightful, heartbreaking, funny, existential, quirky, charming, poignant, and unforgettable love story.
The Fault in Our Stars eloquently emphasizes the inherent and indomitable privilege and gift in simply loving someone. It’s a book that left me emotionally gutted, inspired and uplifted, and reverently awed over the transformative power of the written word. Hazel and Gus will stay with me, forever....more

This was a tad slow for me in the beginning. I liked Cassie, but too much time was spent in her head and on minutely detailing the Glacier Lily cabins. I wanted more of Deacon, and there seemed to be a keen lack of his background and POV. Fortunately things picked up in a big way for me around the 25% mark and the last 30% or so was fabulous, especially the sigh-worthy, KA epic epilogue. I wanted some action and further details about Deacon’s shady, criminal past, and I think it would have been even better with more of the story told from his POV. But I still ended up loving it and very KA content. 4 ½ stars!
One last observation/quibble:
I got tired of the H/h using/saying the words ‘woman’, ‘beauty’, and ‘badass/badasses’. They’re common expressions in KA’s books and being overused to the point that it’s really beginning to annoy me....more

Yowza! I’m an avid Pamela Clare fangirl and her I-Team series is one of the very best in romantic suspense. So what do I think about her venture into writing an “erotic” story? Oh hell yeah!
This is a prequel to Striking Distance detailing the steamy, forbidden weekend Javier and Laura share together. I’m glad I read this first, and now I’m counting down the days until Striking Distance is released.
I also hope Ms. Clare writes more erotic romances in the future!...more

This is one of the all-time best, most intelligent, and well written paranormal romance series, and Shield of Winter is another fantastic addition. The romance between Vasic and Ivy was so beautiful and moving. I just loved them together! *Swoon*...more
