great story and characters
His Command: A Playboy Genie Romance - S... His Command: A Playboy Genie Romance - Sophie H. Morgan

Hailey would have had a really bad fall if Ryder had not caught her. Ryder notices a has been his deep sadness in Hailey’s eyes. Ryder is Immortal and all his life sadness in someone has been his weakness as Ryder cares about how people feel.  Ryder is a genie and starts to care for Hailey but she needs complete control. Hailey had been dumped by Ethan the man she had proposed to and now she has to plan a genie party and her Ethan’s wedding to another woman. Then Hailey feels more than she should for Ryder.  Ryder and his twin had a very sad past. Hailey has worked hard to be a wedding planner so she must do a good job with Ethan’s wedding.

I enjoyed this book a lot. But it did drag at times for me but not enough to stop reading. I felt Ethan was a butt and Hailey was lucky to be rid of him. I did chuckle at times while reading this. You did get to see Hailey grow throughout this book and I enjoyed that. I loved how Ryder still worked hard to be with Hailey even after she broke up with him. I felt this romance was realistic. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this story and I recommend this.

Review: Primal Force (K-9 Rescue #3) by D.D. Ayres

Passion is always worth fighting for…

 

Jori Garrison trains dogs for Warrior Wolf Pack, which provides service animals for disabled veterans. Four years ago, she was wrongly convicted of a crime—thanks to her no-good ex-fiancé. Now she just wants to live her life in peace with her beloved dogs. No men, no complications. But it’s hard to play it cool when a lethally hot male is on her tail—and the attraction is fierce, mutual, and dangerous…

 

PRIMAL FORCE

 

Lauray "Law" Batisse is a Military Police veteran who was wounded in Afghanistan. Haunted by the loss of his K-9 partner in combat, he’s reluctant to accept a service dog named Samantha into his life. But once he meets her trainer—the gorgeous Jori Garrison—he can’t fight his primal instincts. And neither can Jori. This sexy alpha male might be the only man strong enough to unleash her desires. And when unseen enemies start hunting them down, he and his new K-9 partner might be her only hope… to survive.

A few notes before we get started:

 

This book can be read as a stand-a-lone.

 

I love that the cover is true to the book. The covers so far for the K-9 Rescue series have fit the books perfectly. The dogs that are featured on the covers, are the pets in the story.

 

The K-9 Rescue series has fast become a favorite of mine. The author highlights the different ways that service dogs play a integral part in service to our country. You can tell that the author has done her research on the different ways to train service dogs for all types of jobs. This in-depth and accurate portray just adds to my enjoyment.

 

Primal Force is book three in the K-9 Rescue series by D.D. Ayres.

 

This is my favorite so far in the series. I love the romance, drama, suspense, & the K-9. It was brilliant to give the reader the K-9, Samantha’s, perspective in this novel along with Jori and Law’s. Getting the K-9’s POV was marvelous; because it added a whole new dimension to the story. Law and Jori where a wonderful couple to fall in love with. I liked them both from the start and couldn’t help, but get caught up in their hot steamy romance as well as everything else that was going on. The danger and excitement just added to the story and relationship building between our couple.

 

Primal Force had me laughing and crying. I was captivated from the first page and had a delightful time reading. This series is engaging and fascinating. I recommend picking up the K-9 Rescue series.

 

Rated: 4.5 Stars

The Goblins of Bellwater
The Goblins of Bellwater - Molly Ringle

by Molly Ringle

 

Modern fairytales seem to be a rising trend and some good stories are coming out of it. This one read much like a traditional fairytale as far as language and sentence structure goes, but it had some original elements like goblins using iPhones and other modern devices. I was finding it rather charming until near the end of the first chapter an F-bomb spoiled it for me.

 

I'm not a prude or easily shocked, but I had been thinking this would be a lovely story for adults and children alike up to that point and it served no purpose to the story except maybe to add some shock value. Was it worth making it unsuitable for children? I didn't think so until I saw the direction the plot would take.

 

The story continues in an enchanting style for a while, drawing the reader into the human interactions with the goblins. It takes a sinister turn just as the f-bombing starts again and then a set up for an apparent romance angle.

 

The significance of the human characters to the goblins all clicks into place by 20% and I started enjoying the original premise, despite the teenage-like relationships. It comes out that the characters are actually in their twenties and becomes decidedly sexual by about a third in, so any thoughts of sharing with children are out the window. I'll give it credit for stopping at 'sensual' rather than turning into graphic erotica, which I hadn't signed on for.

 

By this time the story has become about the humans and the goblins are left behind. They appear again periodically, but the fairytale atmosphere gives way to a Romance story. Readers of that genre may enjoy this more than I did. It went in a different direction than I expected and my interest waned accordingly.

 

The writing itself is good so I can't fault it, it just wasn't for me.

REVIEW BY AMY - Fated Desires (Fated...) by Becky Flade
Fated Desires - Becky Flade

Jenna Gavin is searching for a fresh start but, more importantly, for balance. Her heart and perhaps the hands of fate have led her and her young son to Trappers' Cove, Minnesota. Settling in the small, quirky town, she's not in the market for a casual relationship but finds herself in one with the young widower next store.

Former shortstop, Gabriel Foxx, is drawn to his difficult new neighbor. The more the prickly divorcee attempts to keep him at arm's length, the more determined he is to break down her walls. He can't avoid the passion she inspires but won't allow himself to feel more.

When friendship grows complicated by stronger emotions and mutual desire just isn't enough, will love be worth the risk?

 

@BeckyFlade, @Mommy_Amers, #Young_Adult, #Contemporary, #Romance, 5 out of 5 (exceptional)
