Anna's Herding Cats

Reviewed for herding cats & burning soup. (live 7/18)

Woo! Yall. Ben was yummy! A little suspense, some fated romance, heartbreak and mending of shattered lives. It was an entertaining read that pulled me in completely.

The Gist: At a family dinner Ben's friend has a vision. A woman is going to re-enter his life and if he wants any future with her he better hold on tight and not let her go like he did in the past. He's like okay, yeah...sure. But then he runs into Kat

Get this. In my previous review, I literally said I shouldn't read anymore Jennifer Ryan for a while. So what do I do? I immediately try to read another Jennifer Ryan novel.

In my own defense, it was pointed out to me that there was only one more book I had any intention of reading, so I might as well do it now and get it over with. And I honestly don't know if that was the right thing to do because now I've DNF'd it. But I kinda think the reason I DNF'd it would be the same even if I read this a

Ben Knight has been itching to find his own happily ever after as he watches his friends succumb to love, marriage, and babies. When a dear friend tells him his soul mate is coming and he’s already met her before, he’s shocked when he is called to the scene of a crime and runs into Kate Morrison; a social worker he had an interlude with a few years ago.

Kate Morrison is reeling from the sudden deaths of her sister, Marg
The Book Junkie Reads . . .
Kate and Ben have met before. They had a blip of chemistry before she ran off for parts unknown to him. Here they are and time has closed the gap between that time and now. Kate and Ben still have that same chemistry. Only this time there is so much more at stake than her heart. Soon her life will depend on this man in more ways than one.

Oh man what a great ending to this series, the plot drew me right in. Ben finally is going to get what the rest of his family has. Kate has been wanting a family ever since her sister had a baby and she seen her happy. The story was great Kate is a social worker and a bad-ass who loves to help she met Ben before but they shared a kiss and she ran for the hills. When they meet each other once again Ben knows he would do anything for her including adding a kid to the mix. Ben wanted a family of hi ...more

Fantastic read. Full of suspense, action, and of course a fantastic romance. Glad Ben finally got his HEA. He definitely deserved it! Kate was a great match for him too. Spunky, determined, and able to overcome not only her unbelievably tough childhood but the loss of the only people she ever called family. This was definitely a great addition to the series and a book I would recommend to everyone. Can absolutely be read stand alone but I recommend the entire series.
I hated how lonely Ben and Kate seemed, how they felt like outsiders among those they considered family. It was nice that during this crazy situation that Kate found herself in she also found Ben, that right away they had a connection. They needed the support of each other as they got to the bottom of things. The ending was perfect for the couple, filled with lots of friends and family.

This is the first book I have read in this series by Ryan and I really liked how different it was and enjoyed the drama that brought these two people together.

Ben and Kate met months ago at a wedding but after a kiss she took off. They have worked and seen each other since but nothing romantic has come from it. Now Kate needs Bens help and he will do anything and everything to help her.

I really enjoyed the plot and how fast paced it was. Ryan did an excellent job on having everything come toge

I read the entire series, and this one is a 5 star just like the previous ones. When you meet Ben in book 1, he sure doesn't seem like the Ben in this book, I had him pictured all different, but glad he was able to get his HEA. This book moves a little faster than the previous ones but it all comes together just fine. As the final book, I sure don't want the series to end, but hope that JR starts another series. Its easy to figure out the bad buys in the murder but the interaction of all the cha ...more

Another one bits the dust, today we are taking a look at Jennifer Ryan's Everything She Wanted. Let me say that I prefer, Jennifer's Montana Men, but I'm willing to try another book in this series. It wasn't a bad read, but I kind of struggle with the heroine. Don't get me wrong, Kate Morrison is pretty awesome, yet there were times I'm like are you serious you have a baby to watch. It's not a sexiest thing, it's more like: Yes, you have been mainly on your own, but you

This is the last in Jennifer Ryan's Hunted series and it is wonderful. I ordinarily don't read romance novels for the simple fact that most of them are a cookie cutter read. Jennifer Ryan is a fresh face in the romance genre. Her heroine comes from a foster care background and she has used that to become a social worker. When her sister of the heart and her fiance are murdered Kate has to step up to the bat and take charge of Alex the son of her sister. Ben Knight,an attorney, who we met in the ...more

I found this series to be very hit or miss in terms of quality, For each book that I actually enjoyed, there was another that left me swearing at the characters for their stupidity. This was another story of that type. The dead man has two sons, but the DNA test could only belong to one of them? Are you flipping kidding me? For a group of people who are supposed to be so intelligent, so skilled in investigative thinking, to completely miss that glaringly obvious clue, bothered the crap out of me ...more

Ben Knight has spent his life protecting those in need and helping abused women escape their terrible circumstances. He’ll stop at nothing to save the lives of his clients, especially the hauntingly beautiful Kate Morrison, a woman threatened by a man whose wealth allows him to get away with everything—including murder.

Kate’s days spent as a social worker, fighting for those unable to help themselves, means she’s spent her fair share of time in a court room. She and Ben have crossed paths, but

Love the series. Does it take a whole chapter to describe sex. The book would be three chapters less if you took these out. Nothing left to the imagination.

Love the series. Too much sex. Takes a whole chapter to describe it in detail. Enough is enough.It would be three chapters less if some details were left out.

Every thing she wanted

This is what happens when a crazy person gets used to having her cake and eating it too. Christina was stone cold crazy. She even used her son to kill her husband and his soon to be wife.

Another outstanding book, in an amazing series! Ben and Kate were so perfect for each other and Alex was such a sweet baby. Such a senseless tragedy but an awesome journey to prove who was the killer. Tangled web of pure enjoyment.

Book five Exhausting

Having discovered Jennifer Ryan several books ago has been a blessing. Everything She Wanted was fast paced and led me on a path that constantly surprised me. Loved the sassy main character, Kate. Highly recommend this book for hours of enjoyment.

I have read all five books in this series. The plots are good, the characters are likable, and the endings happy. This author is obsessed with women being beaten, tortured, and shot. Also a very wordy author. She uses too many descriptions.

I read this in a day! I got nothing else done, but it was fantastic. This story twisted me up in so many knots. I felt every ounce of pain. Then, slip in some swooning and heart melting and this story was perfect.

So many things to not like about this book. Spoilers aplenty here, people. Don't say I didn't warn you.

#1- When I started the book, I couldn't even remember WHO Ben Knight was. Obviously, he's been in one of the other Hunted series books, but I couldn't place him. Then he called Jenna "Rabbit" and I remembered. He is the lawyer from the first book that helps hide Jenna from her abusive ex.

#2-Kate's character. I did not like her. At all. She is out of the JR "Disney princess" mold, but not in a g
