Twisted Perfection was a huge surprise for me because after reading the Too Far series I really had no interest to jump in and read Woods' story. Not that I didn't like him in the Too Far series, he just didn't appeal to me and the only real reason I read them was because I was looking forward to Grant's story. Well Woods totally stole the show! He was not what I expected and I totally loved him!
I actually loved the first book and rated it 4.5 stars; however, to me Simple Perfection felt like a filler book. I mean the majority of it was boring and there was really no need for it. I would of been much happier with an extra 50 pages in the first book and a nice little eppi to wrap it up.
Be WARNED. There is a huge spoiler at the end of this book that sets up a story for a future couple. I made the mistake of reading the description of that story before I read the end of Simple Perfection and I was pissed!! I believe it is the 8th book in the series.
Anywho, even though I didn't love this one as much as the former, I do still lurrrrve me some Woods!!

When I heard that Don't Let Go had a similar tone to it, I immediately pushed it to the top of my TBR pile.
The only similarities I saw were the two main characters being best friends, young lovers, and then many years later reuniting.
Don't Let Go was a page turner for me, and I found myself not wanting to put it down. Ms. Lovelace's writing style is easy to read and witty. I fell for all of the characters in the book and at the end didn't want to let go!
My only gripe is that I felt the ending was rushed and that there was no epilogue. I'm an eppie girl and reading a book that made me feel so many emotions and not getting full ending/eppi was like getting the cake without the ice cream.

But I gotta say even though this is my least favorite James' book it took 20+ books for me not to completely love one of her work, in which that his a feature all by itself.
To me it seemed the first 20 percent went by slow, 20-70 percent picked up and the last 30 percent dragged a little.
All in all, I would say it is still worth the read especially if you love a smokin' hot cowboy and a sassy Army veteran heroine.

Even with all the hype, something about it had kept me putting it off. Truthfully, I had little interest in reading about a virgin loner hero. However, a few weeks ago once again Archer's Voice kept showing up on my goodreads and Facebook feeds, so I moved it up to read soon.
Well I have to say Archer's Voice was truly incredible. The way Mia Sheridan told the story of how two broken people find each other and help heal and validate each other was beautiful.
I won't go into detail because there are already so many incredible reviews for this masterpiece, but I will say Archer's Voice was an inspiring well constructed story that is unforgettable.

First, I never really had any feeling toward Dorothy in the previous books, not that I didn't like her, but I just waiting on her story to make a judgement. After reading the first page I had compassion for this woman. This is very rare for me, to almost immediately feel something for a heroine right off the bat, especially when I've met them in other books. So kudo's to you Madeline for the stellar opening!
Okay, so here goes, I wouldn't really classify this as a love triangle and I kinda wanted her to end up with the one she didn't end up with. I know, I know, I'm not the majority vote, but I was still holding out hope. However, I will say with the way she wrote the story I absolutely ended up falling in love with the couple and I believe she did justice in telling their story. My only gripe would be is that I didn't feel like I had the closure I should of with the other person.
Unbeloved, I would say is the tamest of the four books in this series, but even so it packs a punch and leaves you wanting more. Without a doubt Ms. Sheehan is one of the best of the MC genre and knows how to formulate a story that will leave you captivated.
Next, we get Preacher's story, it's a back in time story and I can't wait for it. However, I will need some booze and meds to get through it cause it's for sure gonna be a tear-jerker!
After Preachers book we will finally get to see ZZ's story, and well I have mixed emotions about this because in Madeline's books we can expect the timeline to be drawn out over a few decades and well I'm wondering what will happen to all of our old timers. I'm not sure I can fathom reading something like that, but I'm sure the queen B can pull it off!

CTMA totally did it for me! It was everything I wanted in a book and more. We get to see Carson and Carolyn's love story of fifty years unfold and it was truly beautiful.
I loved Carson! But I absolutely adored Carolyn. After reading the fifteen books prior to CTMA it gave me insight to their relationship and views that we've seen in their prior scenes.
What surprised me the most was Carolyn's sister Kimi. She had me laughing my butt off, and I wish I could of seen more of her and Cal.
This was the perfect ending for my favorite series. Lorelei you did a fantastic job my friend. Now I wanna sit down and have a few drinks with you and reminisce about all the men and women in this fictional town.

Nothing bad, it just didn't grab my attention and I found myself taking putting it down a lot. However, I will say it had one of the best er umm non penetration scenes I have ever read.
