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.

Hold me
Brighter Than the Sun (A KGI Novel) - Maya Banks

This is book #11, in the fast paced KGI series.  This can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader enjoyment, and to completely understand the series and what is going on in the book, I recommend reading this 5* series in order.

 

Joe has heard from all the other brothers, and sometimes even his sister, that he will know the "one" when he finds her.  Well that all seems like a bunch of garbage.  Until she steps into view.  Now it is a whole new adventure.

 

Zoe has never had a family who loves her.  In fact her whole life has been a lot of the opposite.  With the help of her college roommate, she finds herself on the run for her life.  Having a man there who wants to cherish and protect her is so unheard of, she is not sure really how to respond.

 

This series always gets my heart pumping.  Each character is so unique and special.  This book has some fan favorite characters inside to make you get excited!  I absolutely cannot wait until the next installment in the series is here.  I give this story 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Berkely Street
Berkley Street (Berkley Street Series Book 1) - Scare Street, Ron; Ripley

This is the second book I've read by this author. This first, I believe I read during Summer Book Bingo last year. I don't remember too much about it, but I remember liking it well enough. I think I rated it three stars.

 

I enjoyed this book quite a bit. It's about a man named Shane Ryan who returns to his childhood home more than twenty years after his parents disappeared from that home. The story is told through flashbacks to Shane's childhood in the house along side the present day story.

 

We find out pretty early on in the book that the house is, in fact, haunted, and that Shane can see and speak with the ghosts.

 

This book is pretty short--the kindle edition lists it at 192 pages. But there is a lot of story packed into those 192 pages. It's pretty much all action all the time, so it makes for a quick read.

 

I'm using it for the "Modern Masters of Horror" square, but it would also work for many other like "Genre: Horror," "Ghost," "Supernatural," or "Haunted Houses."

 

I'd probably have rated it four stars, but there was one thing that I had a hard time looking past.

 

 

When Shane is young, his parents end up believing that he can see ghosts, that not all of the ghosts are happy they're there, and that the house is haunted. Yet, they don't immediately move out, and even go out and leave their son at home alone...sometimes at night, when the ghostly happenings in the house are at their worst. o.O
