Book Review : Needing Him Kennedy Fox
Needing him - Kennedy Fox

 April 16- June 29 


Evan Bishop is your typical hotshot doctor. 
Hardass, brooding, and all business. 

Instead of working on the family ranch, Evan broke the mold and became an ER doctor. 
He’s good with his hands—in more ways than one—smart as a whip and is the definition of God’s gift to women. Being a gentleman is in his Southern roots, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t flawed. Exclusive dating has never been a top priority and his tragic past makes him stay at arm’s length. Deciding to let loose for a wild night, he takes a page from the Bishop brother’s relationship book and hooks up with a mysterious girl he’ll never have to see again, which is perfect for this self-proclaimed bachelor. 

Emily Bell is a city girl through and through but is determined to get away from her family and past. All she wants is a fresh start and to make a name for herself in the medical field. No random hookups and no dating coworkers—that’s her new motto after being burned time and again. When she agrees to attend a wedding as a plus-one, she’s soon ditched and left to drink solo—but not for long. Mr. Suit is the ultimate temptation with his Southern charm, messy blond hair, and irresistible sex appeal. Everything about him screams bad news, but he makes her reconsider her rules just for one night. 

After all, some rules are made to be broken.

They want the same thing—one night of passion then they’ll go their separate ways. No cuddling afterward. No next day phone calls. No awkward goodbyes. Too bad the universe has other plans—one that’ll be obvious when they report to work on Monday morning. 


Review : I love this series Evan and Emily meet at Alex's wedding and end up hooking up Emily gave Evan a fake name when she wakes up she can't remember his name so calls her friend and thinks it's drew who is Courtney's husband and she takes his clothes . Evan calls John to get him some clothes but Jackson shows up with full cowboy garb . Emily shows up at the hospital and Evan has to train her and they have this angry fighting most of the time . But when Emily explains and apologies . Evan and Emily hook up again at the hospital. Emily is being stalked by the husband of wife who passed away and couldn't help and passed away, Well one night he tries to run her off the road and she calls Evan and he comes to help her they go to the police and Evan stays with Emily but she ends up eventually staying with Evan . They end up getting closer she meets the rest of his family . one night when Evan is trying to get a sex toy removed from a couple Evan is trying to page Emily but she isn't answering the man took her hostage but the cops get there in time but he stabbed Evan but he's alright and Emily is pregnant . Evan ends up proposing to emily I love this series it's so cute.

Quotes : It’s crazy when you find the person you’re meant to be with, and you just know she’s your other half.”

How can you even tell them apart?” She glances over at me and smirks. “John’s much more serious. Jackson’s hair is a little longer, too.” “He’s pretty good lookin’,” I whisper, admiring his chiseled and neatly trimmed jawline. “If you dated John and I dated Jackson, that’d be perfect!” she whisper-shouts

I will as long as you take off your clothes,” I tease, desperate to see what’s underneath them. It’s obvious how built and muscular he is, but the moment he unbuttons his shirt and reveals his broad shoulders and chest, I nearly drop to my knees and thank baby Jesus for blessing me with this sinful view. Washboard abs that form into a delicious V have me moaning aloud. “Like what you see?” His cocky grin only adds to his appeal. Confidence is sexy in a man,

My brothers have the biggest mouths in the south.


That’s the woman who stole my goddamn clothes,



It wasn’t the other random groomsmen I hooked up with; it was Alex’s oldest brother, Evan Bishop. Fucking hell.


Oh yeah.” She laughs. “Apparently, he called John for some clothes, but Jackson’s the one who delivered them, which were all ranch work clothes he would never wear, then when he tried to leave, the entire family was downstairs of the B&B.


“You owe me one. Remember that time I brought you clothes when you were butt-ass naked?” “And remember the type of clothes you brought me knowing I had no other choice but to wear them?” I remind him. He lets out a chuckle, which doesn’t help his case.

One drink, then I’m leaving. I’m not kidding. I will leave your ass to be hit on by all the cougars who want you in their beds,” I warn. “The thought of that is almost appealing.”


Kiera, you keep moaning like that, and Jackson’s gonna come in his pants,” I say just loud enough for the five of us to hear. Emily chokes on her food as soon as the words come out of my mouth,


You look like one too,” I say just as John walks up. He’s pissed, and when I look over at Jackson, I realize it’s because they’re wearing the same thing, to a T. “How’re the ladies going to tell you two apart?” I joke, trying to contain my laughter. “Considering Jackson doesn’t know how to keep his damn mouth shut, I doubt it’ll be too hard.” John says with a smile.


Emily…” I whisper in her ear. “I will do anything if you bid on me. And I do mean anything.” I see her cheeks heat as she contemplates my words. “Hmm, I don’t know. I kinda enjoy watching you sweat.” “C’mon, you can’t hate me that much. Plus you kind of owe me for saving your life and all.”


“Dylan Hart. You’re up next, baby.” Jessica’s voice pulls me out of my daze, and I watch as Dylan struts up the stage in a fitted suit. He’s tall and lean, wearing a cowboy hat and boots. “If any of you ladies are brave enough to bid on my man, you better be fifty and older.” The crowd chuckles.

John has more women in his bed than I do. Everyone thinks I’m the player, and I’ll happily take the title, but John has me beat by a long shot. He’s just too modest to admit it.”


Oh my God.” John groans. “Stop it. You’re giving my face a bad name.”

Review: Mandie and the Singing Chalet by Lois Gladys Leppard
Mandie and the Singing Chalet - Lois Gladys Leppard

When Mandie, Celia, Jonathan, Mrs. Taft, Senator Morton and Uncle Ned leave Italy, they know that the house they are traveling to in Switzerland is surrounded with mystery. The very ancient, very large chalet they will stay at has unusual things going on that no one has been able to figure out.

Could the rumors and tales surrounding the chalet possibly be true? What about the singing that is heard late at night, but in unintelligible words?

Strange as well are the servants and some of the other quests at the chalet. What's really going on here?

A fine setting for Mandie and her friends to work on another mystery! (from Goodreads)

 

Series: 17 in Mandie

Rating: 3 stars

 

This book is set in Switzerland, and I've never read anything about Switzerland, nor have I ever been there. And quite frankly, I don't think the author had either. It was set in a very small village (we see a house, a church and a blacksmith, basically the things you also would find in America). In said village, everyone speaks French... except the blacksmith, who apparently only speaks English. Jonathan speaks to him in French, he replies I speak English and Jonathan repeats his question in English, because he didn't understand? And this blacksmith is apparently an Irishman who's lived in Switzerland since he was a baby in a very small village where everyone speaks French, he can't speak French, despite the fact that most of his customers would only speak French and he has a thick Irish accent. Even if it was because of his mother, he wouldn't have an Irish accent. I don't have a French accent just because my dad does. My friends don't have a British accent just because their dad does. My mom doesn't have a French or British accent despite the fact that her dad was British and step-mother French. I think not.

 

(Sorry about that rant, I read the book yesterday and I'm still angry.)

 

The plot of this book is this: Mandie, Celia, Jonathan, Mrs. Taft and Senator Morton go to Switzerland (duh) to stay with friends, but when they show up, said friends had to leave because of a family emergency in back home in Germany and they give the gang the house to stay in while they're in Switzerland. Where they're supposed to be sightseeing. But never leave this tiny village... 

 

Some strangers show up! Claiming to be friends of theirs, but none of the household nor Mrs. Taft have heard of these people, yet let them in because they have a note. #suspicious

 

They hear some mysterious singing at night. There's a ghost story about an old abandoned tower in the chalet they're staying in. Mrs. Taft tells Mandie not to investigate. Mandie investigates. And nearly dies in the process. She solves the mystery and doesn't get in trouble. #goodguardianing (because Mrs Taft is her grandmother and guardian... no? Okay...)

 

This is one of my favourite endings because it's not typical.

 

It's an opera singer with Alzheimer's. It's amazing.

(spoiler show)

 

I waited the whole book for their mysterious stalker and wasn't disappointed. She turns up. In a secret passage way. Where the only entrances are in house. And no one is concerned about this. They're too busy reading what she gave them. And when they tell Mrs. Taft she barely reacts. If my grandchild said that they kept seeing a woman all over Europe and then she showed up inside a secret passage way in the house we were staying in, I'd bring her back to America. Not "Oh, that's nice dear." Mrs. Taft is a terrible grandmother. If I were the one to discover a woman who was in every country we were was in a secret passage way, I'd start screaming. But, hey, maybe that's just me.

 

 

Also, the next book features a character with the name Baroness Geissler and I just

The Autumn Republic by Brian McClellan - My Thoughts
The Autumn Republic - Brian McClellan

And so the saga of General Tamas et al draws to a close and our tale gets a highly satisfactory ending.  I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this trilogy and what was my introduction to what they call the Flintlock Fantasy sub-genre. 

There were so many plotlines that had to come together and that we needed to get answers to, and I think that the author managed to do all of that successfully - at least to my satisfaction. :)  Yeah, there were a few small questions that I would have preferred have better answers or maybe more involved answers, but they were few and far between.

I loved the characters and had so many favourites.  But I think Taniel Two-Shot was my #1 favourite with Bo, his best friend, being a close second and I was quite happy with the way their stories panned out. 

I'm not really a fan of short stories or even novellas, but I will say this - I will be looking up the many stories and novellas that the author has written about these characters.  And I will be reading his newest trilogy, set in the same world. 

Anyway, if you like Djano Wexler or Brian Stavely or even Bernard Cornwell's "Sharpe" books, you'll enjoy this author. 

Oh... and the covers of all three books are TERRIFIC!

Juana was the star
Flesh and the Devil (Troubadour Books) - Teresa Denys

For my comments and quotes while I read, a way more in depth look at my thoughts, Buddy Read The Flesh and the Devil


The beginning of this was really enjoyable, there was a great eerie Gothic tone that had mysteries and villains seemingly in the shadows everywhere with our young, extremely sheltered heroine Juana betrothed to a lunatic. Unfortunately, the mysteries and villains get wrapped up perfectly quickly and a lot of things happen disappointingly off-screen. 

The middle introduces new villains but again, dealt with pretty quickly and from there things kind of meander into an unceremoniously mellow with added too perfect bow moment ending. The romantic relationship between the leads started off with some heat, spark, and burn as they clashed but then in Bodice Ripper fashion the hero rapes the heroine (the author clearly writes this as rape with minimal Juana foggily in her mind thinking her body could be responding) and with not a lot of emotional growth/connection featuring later in the story between the two, I lost their beginning chemistry. 

The author did a fantastic job of setting the place and time, there was some inserted political talk, but my favorite was Juana's personal growth. Juana goes from being a, purposefully, sheltered naive girl to a solid capable woman and the author did a wonderful job showcasing all the bumps in the road it took her to get there.
