That is one of my favorite things about this challenge - it gets you to read new authors!

My first ever challenge and I'm going back to the beginning with Out Of Her League.

MountainKat | 22498 comments Welcome Loz! That was my first KC book, I really enjoyed it!

Fran | 11276 comments I finished Deacon's Touch.

I started a 'C' and I end up a 'B+'. Jessica and Deke were cute together, and sexy too. I would read more in the series but I'm not running out to get the next one. But still a nice, shortish read.

Loz | 57 comments I read Out Of Her League

Was a 'C', enjoyed the book but didn't love it so whilst I am interested in reading more of her work, I'm not rushing out to get it. So I guess that makes me now a 'B' :)

That series heads more towards a military suspense after the first book - I really liked them. The first book is quite different from the others though.

MountainKat | 22498 comments I finished Deadly Descent yesterday and loved it, maybe as much for the narrator as the story! Kaleo Griffith is wonderful and I just wish he was narrating the rest of the series!! I had forgotten how much I enjoyed Kaylea Cross books! She writes wonderful characters and puts them in tense situations and does it so well. I loved seeing the hero and heroine get their HEA after everything they went through. It wasn't easy to get there, but it was worth it and the ending was very sweet. Definitely looking forward to more in the series!

I started an A and I finish an A!

Sounds like I should def check out more of her work, thanks MountainKat. I liked the story and the characters in Out Of Her League, there were just a couple of things that annoyed me - I really dislike the overuse of cutesy nicknames, and this one drove me crazy! Will have to check out this book and narrator you mention.


message 19: by MountainKat, Moderator (new)

MountainKat | 22498 comments It's been so long since I read it, I don't even remember that!


message 20: by Shelby (new)

Shelby (stang_lee) | 1694 comments Was a C - I think I'd put me at a B after finishing Brody's Vow ★★★★. I enjoyed it, it was a fun read, but there wasn't anything special about it that took it over the top for me. :)
