Tiger Striped - Jennifer Ashley

Very short novella where Tiger, Carly, and Conner go on a mission to rescue someone Tiger doesn’t know but knows he has to get to her fast.   The drive to find her is painful and insistent and Carly refuses to let Tiger go on another adventure without her there to protect him.  They are chased by black ops soldiers, cops, and park rangers.  Who they find in the basement of a shack in the mountains of New Mexico will shock those present but will give Tiger back someone he didn’t realize was still alive.  Great story.  The captive is a captivating character and the attraction between her and Conner definitely spells another book in the future.  Enjoyable and entertaining

Midnight Wolf - Jennifer Ashley

The story line was good. The characters were interesting and well developed. The conflict was strong and I liked the surprises along the way. It was slow at times, but I liked it better than Red Wolf. It is set in New Orleans so Jasmine’s haunted house plays a brief roll (YAY!) and Ben is in it, as well as Lady Aisley. I definitely want Ben’s book, it is high time he got his happily ever after. Overall I enjoyed it, but I didn’t devour it like others.

Office Mate by Katie Ashley
Office Mate - Katie Ashley

 

It's not whether you win or lose, but how you play the game. Cliches are dime a dozen, but this one is rooted in truth. Katie Ashley takes those words to heart and has a bit of fun along the way. Office Mate begins with a love, hate type of relationship. Thorn is a wild card. He has the looks, was born into the name, yet is more than just the gun toting playboy, he's assumed to be. In a world where image is everything, he's a lost little boy struggling to find his footing. Isabel is his ticket to the big time. She has the brains to make things happen and the looks to stop a man in his tracks, As woman, working her way up in a man's world, she has a lot to prove and will let nothing stand in her way. That is until she gets to know the man behind the ego and loses her heart in the process. Office Mate removes the kid gloves and gets to the main event. Ashley is quick with the wit and sends up the sparks in a tempting bundle of love.

Red Wolf (A Shifters Unbound Novel) - Jennifer Ashley

I had a hard time getting into this one. They were already mate-claimed when it starts and they had a lot of starts and stops in the passion department and every time they turned it off like it was no big deal, which made it and them hard to believe. Also, they are best friends and have been for 20 years or so; and yet, they don’t know they love each other until much later into the book, and act surprised when they acknowledge it internally to themselves. I don’t get that. It was obvious from the start they loved each other, respected each other, depended on each other, wanted each other in their lives, yet they were unsure whether they loved each other?  It didn’t make sense. She also sometimes came across as if she teased him with the mate bond, strung him along and he was ok with that when we find out later he knew she was his mate of his heart from the moment they met 20 years ago.  It didn’t add up. I did like returning to New Orleans and to Jasmine’s haunted house. Loved every scene at the house. The excursion into Faerie was exciting and the conflict was good, I just didn’t like how the relationship developed. I think I would have much preferred if from page one they acknowledged their love and mate bond and went into the story already an established couple.

Review: Scandal Above Stairs by Jennifer Ashley
Scandal Above Stairs - Jennifer Ashley

Reviewed for Wit and Sin

 

There’s no rest for Kat Holloway, the most talented cook in Mayfair. Not only has her kitchen assistant quit to be married and thus left her shorthanded, Lady Cynthia has a request: she wants Kat’s help to solve a mystery and clear her friend Clemmie’s name. Valuable paintings have gone missing from her household and Clemmie’s husband is blaming her for it. One mystery begets another and another as first Kat learns that antiquities are being stolen from multiple residences, then she finds out that her friend Daniel McAdam is undercover in in a seedy pawnshop. With her curiosity piqued, Kat will have to use all her detective skills above stairs and below to uncover a mastermind willing to kill to protect his secrets.

I love falling into Kat Holloway’s world. In Scandal Above Stairs Jennifer Ashley drew me in from the start with a seemingly simple mystery that leads to something far more complex and I did not want to put the book down.

Kat is the heart and soul of the story and she’s a fantastic heroine. She’s clever, observant, loyal, talented, and kind, but Ms. Ashley keeps her from feeling too good to be real. Kat has a no-nonsense attitude, but she also draws people to her, which is how she finds herself in the middle of this latest mystery. Cynthia trusts and respects Kat, which is why she asks for her help in the first place and I love the unlikely friendship between a rather unconventional lady and an equally unique cook. The characters are what makes Scandal Above Stairs shine. Familiar characters and those newly introduced are all incredibly well-crafted and are like puzzle pieces who fit together perfectly. My favorite relationship is definitely the one between Kat and Daniel. This time around, we learn more about Daniel and the past he keeps secret. I was thrilled to learn more about him and I was excited that he opened up to Kat when he doesn’t trust most people. The romantic tension between Kat and Daniel continues to build and I’m looking forward to seeing how their relationship progresses.

Scandal Above Stairs is the second full-length book in the Kat Holloway series and it can be read as a standalone. However, for a more complete reading experience I recommend first reading the prequel novella, A Soupçon of Poison, and the first novel, Death Below Stairs, in order to get a better understanding of the characters and their relationships (Daniel and Kat’s in particular). I hesitate to say any more about this book because mysteries lose their excitement when you talk too much about them. Suffice it to say that Ms. Ashley never fails to entertain and her blend of fact and fiction, of murder and mystery is wonderful. Kat and her friends are endearing, the story moves at a quick pace, I was thoroughly entertained, and I cannot wait to read the next Kat Holloway book!
