Home run
The Bromance Book Club - Lyssa Kay Adams

Gavin finds out his wife has been faking it.  They have just barely checked in to their marriage recently, and now Thea is checking out.  She has asked him for a divorce, and he is unsettled by this.  He truly loves her and wants to get back to the hot and heavy he thought they were.


Thea is fed up about it all.  She is sick of being taken for granted.  Sick of the other wives and girlfriends of her husbands team shunning her.  Sick of her husband not wanting to be with her the way they used to.  She wants to get back to the happy, but must first find what was lost.


Stories about married couples can be tricky.  I loved that this one was not afraid to go there.  Both characters really had to come out of their shell and be honest.  The sexy times get lively, and heavy in the heat.  The story is solid and the pace is steady.  I loved that these MC's had to work for it.  I really hated the female lead for about 90% of the book.  I was so pleased I shouted when the storyline caught up with what I thought.  Nicely played.  I give this read a 5/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Review: Wicked Hour (Heirs of Chicagoland #2)by Chloe Neill
Wicked Hour - Chloe Neill


In the second pulse-pounding novel in the USA Today bestselling Heirs of Chicagoland series, vampire Elisa Sullivan gets drawn into the shifting sands of Pack politics.

Vampires were made, not born—until Elisa Sullivan came along. As the only vampire child in existence, she grew up with a heavy legacy, and tried to flee her past. Then circumstances drew her back to Chicago, and she stayed to keep it safe. With shifter Connor Keene, the only son of Pack Apex Gabriel Keene, at her side, she faced down a supernatural evil that threatened to destroy Chicago forever.

After the dust from the attack has settled, Elisa is surprised when Connor invites her to a usually private Pack event in the north woods of Minnesota, and by the warm welcome she receives from some of Connor’s family, even though she’s a vampire. But the peace doesn’t last. The shifters tell tales of a monster in the woods, and when the celebration is marred by death, Elisa and Connor find themselves in the middle of a struggle for control that forces Elisa to face her true self—fangs and all.





I received a free copy from the publisher via Netgalley and chose to leave a voluntary review. Thank you!*


I was really looking forward to this book, as I liked the first book a lot.

This book started out pretty good and strong but at the 30-40% mark it just went downhill and had a hard time ti recover from that.

One I thought as we leaping Chicago we get a little more action on the road and we do get some, but we also get some long and a bit boring politics. Some parts are just a bit too drawn out. We do leanr a bit more about the pack and not only the ones we know but also some elders and rules from other packs, which was sort of interesting and I liked that part.

We also meet some new people and I must say Alexei, is one of my new favs ….. So far. Of course we see some familiar faces and its aslways good to see Ethan and Mer again, and see little has changed with them lol .

I really like Connor and Elisa, I like them even more. Of course we get some pretty funny banter between them which I loved … for the most part. Except there were a few times I was annoyed how they had to call or point out that one is a vampire and one is a wolf…… that happened way to many times for my liking and got old. Though I have to say that I like Connor more than I ever liked Ethan. I did not start liking Ethan till the end of the series lol .

I don’t want to spoil anything so I just be very vague but some things happened in the book , that got handled not every well for me, that just sort of ruined a lot of it .

Overall. It started out good, then things got wonky and never really recovered. I most likely will still pick up the next book in the series to see how things turn out. But this book was just okay for me and could have been a bit better.

I rate it 3 ★

Review: Storm Cursed (Mercy Thompson #11) by Patricia Briggs
Storm Cursed - Patricia Briggs


In this new instalment in the No. 1 New York Times bestselling series, Mercy Thompson must face a deadly enemy to defend all she loves . . .

My name is Mercedes Athena Thompson Hauptman, and I am a car mechanic.

And a coyote shapeshifter . . . And the mate of the Alpha of the Columbia Basin werewolf pack.

Even so, none of that would have gotten me into trouble if, a few months ago, I hadn't stood upon a bridge and taken responsibility for the safety of the citizens who lived in our territory. It seemed like the thing to do at the time. It should have only involved hunting down killer goblins, zombie goats, and an occasional troll. Instead, our home was viewed as neutral ground, a place where humans would feel safe to come and treat with the fae.

The reality is that nothing and no one is safe. As generals and politicians face off with the Gray Lords of the fae, a storm is coming and her name is Death.

But we are pack, and we have given our word. We will die to keep it.

It seemed like forever since the last Mercy book was released, so this was so needed.

I totally missed Mercy, Adam and the rest of the gang and go be honest I will be super sad once this series ends.

This like most her books start off with a bang and throws you right into action with Mercy and Co. I really enjoyed the new dynamic between her and the pack now that Adam finally put his foot down.  Though some members, make it clear the only reason they are “nice” to her is because of that. But you can also tell others really like her. I love how she handles it, like everything with a lot of humor.

One theme in this book was politics. Politics between the humans and all supernatural, some if it was important but some parts seemed to be dragged out a bit, especially when there were more pressing issues happening, like the witches and other things. There were quite a few things happening in this book and we get a few different things, from goblins to zombies and witches, and of course the pack and Mercy are right in the middle of everything.

We meet some new faces, but of course we also run into our friends, Zee and Tad, our allies and some no friends Vampires and the witches come out to play. Of course the Fay do as well in their own way of course.

We get a lot of Sherwood this book and learn a lot more about him and his past, we almost see him more than Adam, it felt like at times.  One thing I wanted more besides Adam, was a Mercy teamed up with Mary-Jo. I really hope we get more of that in to the future, I enjoyed that way too much.

Adam like I said we see but not as much as I would have liked, he was busy, a lot with the humans and the politics between humans and non-humans.

Overall this book was not my favorite with all the politics, it was slowed down a bit, or at least for me. But that being said I still really enjoyed this book and can’t wait to see what is in store next for Mercy and Co.

I rate it 4★

Cool fire
Shot on Gold (A Play-by-Play Novel) - Jaci Burton

This is book #14, in the Play By Play series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader enjoyment and complete understanding of this incredible series, I recommend reading it in order.


Will AKA "Mad Dog" meets up with Amber through a mutual friend.  They have a lot in common.  Sports, competitive drive, attraction, and more.  When the sparks between them start flying, it is hard to fight the instincts.  


Amber has one goal - get that gold.  She has been sheltered, and does not fully understand what she is up against.  She only knows she wants to live.  Finally live!  Will brings that out in her more than most.


Such a sexy book with banter and heat right from the start.  Perfect addition to this already very hot, erotic series.  The characters make it exciting, and the story is very compelling.  I could hardly put it down.  I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

A Dark and Stormy Murder - Julia Buckley

SO I picked this book up randomly for my mom, and she can't read it since the print is too small so I decided to give it a read myself.

I'd say the biggest thing I didn't like about this book is that there's no real sleuthing. The mystery just unfolds by itself and I really wanted an amateur sleuth story. Other problems were the constant talking about calories and food and getting fat. Why is this such a big thing? Otherwise it was a good book. Nothing that really chafes me other than that and it has two female leads, one that's old which is nice to see. Not sure about the love triangle that will have to resolve itself.
