I am an avid reader. I devour books as I read them. It honestly takes a lot for me to give a novel 5 stars. This one has it in spades.
I truly felt the emotions of each character has I read along. The surroundings of Blue Lake, the small town this novel takes place in, was described perfectly. The author did not over describe anything. It was just enough to keep you in the moment and the story flowing. I never skipped a single page or paragraph, due to what I call droning on and on ....lol
Harlow is a believable lead heroine. I related to what she had been through. I felt her pain, confusion and her need to change herself for the better. Loved her personality. Even though she was done wrong she never let that stop her from from dreaming about her future. Finding love. Some may say that is happened to fast, however I also got dumped after 3 years in a relationship and the very next night met my soul mate. We've been together for almost 11 years :D. So it can happen. Dane was a great alpha male for her love interest. They knew each other already from their childhood. He was perfectly strong, sexy and handsome. With the perfect amount of the bad boy we all fall in love with.
This novel was 244 pages. I read it all in one sitting and lost sleep, because I could not put it down. It played like a wonderful lifetime movie, in which I could not bring myself to hit the pause button. I needed to know what happened next....lol This novel is a Contemporary Romance that I highly recommend. You will not be disappointed. This is the 1st novel of Kristin Miller's that I have read. So I can easily say it's a stand alone read even though it's book 5 in the Blue Lake series. I can definitely say I'm eager to add this series and author to my TBR list and I will soon be purchasing this whole series :D The last thing I want to comment about are the love scenes. For me they were perfect. Just what I like to read in a romance. If your like me and come to a supposed romantic sex scene and they talk like it's a bad porn, all the romance flies out the window and the book is ruined for me, even if the story is good. That's when I have to start flipping pages until the story picks up again. This book is DEFINITELY not like that. Kristin kept the scenes believable, loving, sexy and heartfelt. The steam factor is a perfect 3.5. (1 being clean, 5 being Erotic) Definitely pick up this novel and get ready to fall in love :D...more
I got this book because it was a free read that I came across on Amazon, while doing a search for dragons. IA really enjoyable escape from reality :)
I got this book because it was a free read that I came across on Amazon, while doing a search for dragons. I went over the description and the reviews and got it, hoping for a descent read. Honestly I loved this story and the world that Elianne Adams created. The writing flows and brings you into a believable world filled with great characters you will fall in love with and will want to know their stories.
I highly recommend this book and series. You will not be disappointed if you enjoy adult, action filled fairytales :D
This is not a young adult/clean read. On a steam scale 1-5 I give this book a perfect 3. ...more
It's not very often I find a boxed set of 1st books in a series in which I can honestly say that every single book in it can be a stand aloneAmazing
It's not very often I find a boxed set of 1st books in a series in which I can honestly say that every single book in it can be a stand alone and that I thoroughly enjoyed each of them. I can also say that I will be finishing all of them. I have added them to my TBR List.
The first two books are in my opinion are rated PG. In the steam factor. But I really enjoyed these refreshing clean reads. I devoured them as fast as I could read...lol. So it honestly didn't hurt the story line. The last two are rated R and I loved them both. ...more

This book was ok. I actually liked the storyline. It's why I finished the book. But I didn't like the lead female. Most of the time I just wanted to smack her. Other times I believed the author just threw in sex scenes Willy nilly. Got so bad I would honestly start flipping the pages until they started talking again. ...more

I have very mixed feelings about this book. Reading this short novel about Vidalia was a happy/sad experience for me. It is the last book in this series, hence the sad part. And I was excited to finally read about Vidalia and hoping for a happy ending for her. *I dont do spoilers*
First off I want to say that I have bought & read every single book in this series The Oklahoma Brands and the series before it The Texas Brands. I LOVED THEM ALL !!!
The story itself I will give 4 stars:
This novel is the last book in this series and I was disappointed in its length of only 120 pages. *sigh* I loved every book in this series and when I finally bought Sweet Vidalia Brand I couldn't wait to hear about Vidalia's story & to hopefully read a wonderful romance for this Strong Female character, that I fell in love with, who raised her daughters as a single mother. But what I got was a short story that left me wanting more. I hate to say this, because I love Maggie Shayne & this series. The book felt rushed and it left me still wanting to know more. I liked what I got, but it could have been AMAZING and should have been.
Steam factor is a 1 star. There are not any steamy adult scenes. Here again I was disappointed. All the other books were 3.5 stars in the series. Great romance, Great "fan yourself" worthy bedroom scenes. In "Sweet Vidalia Brand" it was just mentioned in brief comments. This is sad for me. I know Vidalia is 50, but I'm 44 years old and have friends who are in their 50's, so I can tell you that our sex life is still going strong. Older doesn't mean the fun is gone. I honestly believe this book could have knocked our socks off if it was longer and told more of her story in better detail.
In closing I can say this, Its a short novel thats well written and can be read in one or two hours. I liked it for what WAS written. and it brings us to a close with the wonderful Oklahoma Brands that we have all come to love. I was just hoping for more.

It was approximately 88 pages on my kindle and I had this action packed mystery read in only a few hours and I Loved It !!!!
The Story is very well written. I was drawn into the storyline after only a few paragraphs. I felt like I could see & smell everything that the heroine Maria Marquez experienced. It actually amazed me that there was lots of action and mystery in such a short novella. It left me wanting more :D
There was a lot of Sexual Tension between Maria and Cooper Craft and was quite steamy. So this is definitely not for young adult readers. Cooper is a very lovable and sexy character. I really enjoyed seeing his side of the story through his eyes & thoughts. I hope to see more of him in the future :)
I really recommend this book. It can be read and enjoyed as a stand alone, or for those who LOVE this series. You will not be disappointed. Julie Leto is an amazing writer and I haven't been let down by any of her works of art and cant wait to read what she comes up with next :D...more

I am sooo Happy & yet soooo sad at the same time. With this being the final installment of this series I was apprehensive to pick up my ereader & start the first page. I wanted my favorite characters to get their happily ever after soooo bad. But I didn't want their stories to end. I love love LOVE this series with a passion. And when I finally started reading it I slowly made my way through each chapter. By the end I was Totally in tears (DANG YOU, But Love you dearly Stacey Kennedy) and I loved it. Stacey, my dear, you scared me to death, surprised me, & Made me cry soooo many times through this series. You did a wonderful job writing this final piece of the puzzle that was Tess & Kipps Magical journey to each other. I refuse to give any details away but I honestly give a 5 star rating & recommend this to any & all PNR lovers out there. It was Exciting, Scary at times & Heart Breaking. My hats off you to Stacey & Big Hugs from a HUGE FAN of yours.
If anyone who loves Paranormal Romace with Ghosts are out there, I highly reccommend this series. When you start with Supernaturally Kissed (Frostbite, #1) you WILL be hooked....more
