Not to mention, this particular detective is a bit of a Lothario. Well, for Peyton, it turns out not to be that easy. Oh, it doesn't help that Drake, the ghost, is more than a little attracted to the body he is currently inhabiting. This is the second book in the series, and is a great follow-up. A malevolent spirit is wreaking havoc. Peyton is doing her best to stop it. This book is funny, filled with banter and steamy bits. The strain on Peyton's new relationship keeps the pace moving. I appreciate Montlake Romance for providing me with a NetGalley copy. Great book!...more

If you haven't read the firBronwyn and Blayke are back in the final installment of the Circle of Talia series. These books have definitely been epic. If you haven't read the first two, I'd recommend you start there, if for no other reason than you don't want to miss them. The world Mrs. Lister has created is amazing. Dragons and Gormons exist in a way that seems fantastical yet you can imagine it's all very real. In a series this huge, when it comes to the final book, it's difficult to skate the fine line between catching readers up-to-date without boring the die-hard fans with an overload of past details. This book pulled it off. We've watched Bronwyn and Blayke grow from moody teenagers into self-sacrificing adults. The choices they have to make in this book, in order to save their world, will break your heart. ...more

In her race to catch him, she steals/borrows the carriage of Sir Orion Wherlocke. In her defense, she does leave her lame horse in exchange. Anyhow, during her pursuit, Catrin discovers she's somehow managed to obtain Orion's son the process.
I have to say a big thank you to Kensington books for the opportunity to read If He's Daring before its release. Orion is swoon-worthy, Catrin possesses the perfect amount of strength to capture him, and I love every minute of it.

We are all born innocent until life ruins it. For me, that's what this book portrayed. The life we're forced to endure shapes us. For Jay and X, it wasn't pretty. As a matter of point, it was probably as screwed up as it could get. They had each other. Was it messed up? Yeah. Did I cringe? Oh, yeah. But, no matter how messed up they are, it's beautiful thing. I was hooked from page one. At 25%, I told my husband, "You have to read this book." At 96%, I released a horrified, "No!" When it was over, I closed the cover on my kindle, saying, "That was freaking awesome." The book has a few quotes highlighted by other readers, and I agreed with each one. Here's a couple more that struck a chord with me.
My soul is his. My mind-- and my heart is soon to follow. Nobody survives without love, and he is the only one willingly offering it to me.
"Ignore your conscience. It makes you unhappy. Let me make you fly."
When Harlequin sent me an ARC of Lori Fosters' No Limits, I was overjoyed. I opened my email, and lit up from the inside.
I requested a copy when I saw that it involved an SBC fighter, since that's been my favorite of her series. THEN, I realized it was Cannon and Yvette's story from the Love Undercover series, and it was on.
Let me refresh your memory, Cannon and Yvette had SO much chemistry in the Love Undercover series.
Cannon thought she was too young and something horrible happened to her. She ran off to California, while Cannon chased his career. Now, Yvette's grandfather has passed on, and in his will, he's hatched a plan to do some beyond the grave matchmaking. Close proximity can be one hell of a motivation, and when two people already have a spark, WOW!! Get ready to fan your face.
Oh, and let me add, then his friends show up....
I want every new character I met to have their own book. There's hot fighters and Yvette's awesome friend from California. **5 Happy Sighs** [image error] ...more

I went into reading Lead with the sure knowledge I would love it, since I always love Kylie Scott’s books. On the other hand, when I left Jimmy behindI went into reading Lead with the sure knowledge I would love it, since I always love Kylie Scott’s books. On the other hand, when I left Jimmy behind in book one, I wanted to slap his face. That gave me reservations, but I trusted the author to fix it and I wasn’t disappointed. I’m not sure if anyone will ever be able to replace Mal as my favorite, but Jimmy tried. He is definitely one smoking hot lover. His dirty talking ways had me fanning my face and steaming up my ereader. On with the review: Lena has a problem keeping jobs. Her tongue refuses to obey and gets her fired more often than it should. Her rage over her sister’s betrayal and her latest job loss, land her in the home of Jimmy Ferris as his sobriety companion. Picking up at the end of book two, Jimmy is turned inside out by the loss of the woman who was like a second mother to him after his real mother abandoned him as a teenager. In his grief, his hard-nosed ways slip just long enough for Lena to get a peek at his heart. She’s hooked. As Lena’s love grew and she dug her heels in determined to strip away his walls, I was rooting for her all the way. I still wanted to punch him in the face. His sticking up for her with her sister went a long way toward winning me. By the time I got to see the man behind his hardened mask, my heart was every bit as much of a mess as Lena’s. Jimmy was simply devastating. This book was 10 times more heartfelt than its hilarious predecessors, but every bit as wonderful. If I could give it 6 stars, I would. My favorite quotes:
‘”Stop hanging around the door when I’m showering. That’s creepy.” I rolled my eyes. It wasn’t like I could see anything through the keyhole. Let’s pretend I didn’t try.”
“He lay on his stomach, ribs working hard to give him back his breath. I’d done that to him, me and my vagina. Go team.”
“My mouth, I want to kill it slowly and painfully in many and varied ways.”
Lead releases July 29th, if you haven’t pre-ordered your copy yet, why are you still reading this?
