Patricia Briggs is amazing and I am loving this series (as well as the Alpha & Omega series). I hope Briggs never stops writing about Mercy and gang and we can forever be brought into their world.
Definitely recommend reading! Also, check out the Alpha and Omega series for more on Mercy's background! They tie together loosely so that just adds to the fun :)....more

I have absolutely LOVED this series and Worth it All is a great addition. WorthARC received via Loveswept/NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
I have absolutely LOVED this series and Worth it All is a great addition. Worth it All is Jake/JT's story, and let me tell you, it's a good one. JT is the youngest of the McKinney crew and we meet him in Worth the Fall. I remember not really loving him as he was portrayed as a bratty little douche ;). But it's obvious as soon as this book starts that he has grown up, had some really hard knocks and is working to be the man that he thinks his family deserves.
We also meet single mom Paige and her adorable little girl Casey. The way Claudia writes children in her stories is amazing. I fall in love with them every time, and Casey is no different. She not only grabs my heart, but JT's as well and watching him interact with Casey throughout this story was heart melting. I loved how they navigate their "likeness" and bond over that.
Watching Paige open up and JT reach for what he deserves is what keeps you in this book. This story is sweet, uplifting, and a great addition to an amazing series. I definitely recommend! ...more
OK, Kristen Ashley does it again! I seriously LOVED this book and devoured it (even when I was trying to slow down and savor it). I absolutely love JoOK, Kristen Ashley does it again! I seriously LOVED this book and devoured it (even when I was trying to slow down and savor it). I absolutely love Joker. He is gentle, kind, and alpha enough to get what he wants without being domineering. I loved Carissa. She is genuine, transparent, hold nothing back, and sweet to her bones. And obviously, I LOVE TRAVIS. Made my womb tingle every scene he was in. I want to cuddle him.
It should be said that I do love romances with kids and babies (especially babies) in them... what can I say, I'm a sucker for them and like the added drama they usually bring into the mix. HINT HINT: you should give us more of this in the future! I loved this story line. KA wrote a book that had everything you wanted in it (romance, drama, excitement, sweetness) without going over the top or turning any of the main characters into idiots (that weren't meant to be).
I loved that most of the drama was outside of their relationship, but Joker and Carissa were solid. LOVE LOVE LOVE that. I never felt the need to slap Joker or Carissa for continually acting stupid. THEY ALSO COMMUNICATED! No secrets that will come back to bite them... CAN I GET AN AMEN?! When does that ever happen in books?! I loved that KA wrote Travis in a believable way. A way that had me wanting more of him, wanting more of Joker with him, and believing that this is actually how this couple dealt with sharing custody and having an infant (sometimes I feel like I read books and I'm like...what did you do with your kid?! haha not KA!).
I enjoyed reading about a younger couple with younger kids... I know this isn't usually KA's style and while I love most of her other books... it was fun changing it up (like Tabby and Shy!). Lastly, (not really but I need to end this somewhere) I absolutely loved seeing her book series collide! Hello, Knight and the Nightengale boys. Elvira? You and I would be best friends... let's hang out. I want more of this group, I never want it to end. Please let me stay in the Chaos/Denver world forever.
Thank you Kristen for another great book! I know I'll be circling back for a re-read soon!
Holy CRAP this book is AMAZING! I love Abby and Matt's story and was so happy to see them in this book as well. Stephan and Hannah were great and theiHoly CRAP this book is AMAZING! I love Abby and Matt's story and was so happy to see them in this book as well. Stephan and Hannah were great and their stories so heart breaking. I loved how Stephan loved Hannah and saw (and helped her see) her beauty. Just the right amount of angst to keep me enthralled... and I mean enthralled. I read this way too far into the night and then snuck read it at work! Worth it.
Claudia doesn't disappoint with book #2 in the McKinney Brothers series. And with this book comes so many more characters that (in my humble opinion) NEED books as well. I cannot wait to see who is next, and dive back into this family's story.
This will definitely be added to me re-read cycle, just like book 1 was.
This series is AMAZING!! I think I have loved each book a little more than the last!
Archer's Voice is no exception. Easily 5 stars for me. I was suckThis series is AMAZING!! I think I have loved each book a little more than the last!
Archer's Voice is no exception. Easily 5 stars for me. I was sucked in almost immediately and felt the anxiety of Bree's move, the uncertainty of what Archer is to Bree and vice versa. My heart broke reading about the past of both of these characters, and I loved reading them find themselves and grow stronger. I begged a Goodread's friend to give me spoilers so I could read in peace but she didn't give in (which I am still acting mad about, but am grateful). I sucked up and and all of Archer's POV and loved seeing how patient and understanding they were with each other hurts. Also, can I just say that I LOVE when book couples TALK things out and don't jump to conclusions?! They were pretty good about that here and I loved reading that.
I cried, laughed, and fell in love. Great story, very well written. I'd like to visit this town again in future books. I think we have a hero that can be redeemed there ;).
