Great read
Misadventures of a City Girl - Meredith ... Misadventures of a City Girl - Meredith Wild,Chelle Bliss

This was a good read that I couldn't put down. Madison wanted to go on a retreat after her very public divorce from her husband, they are both from Hollywood, her ex husband cheated and she wants to get away and goes to a retreat. Luke is a man that lives in the mountains outside the retreat and lives on his own and tries to stay away from everyone. When they run into each other and Madison needs his help the chemistry and sparks are flying. This is a great fast moving story and I could not put this book down.

Both these authors have not disappointed with this book. And I am looking forward to the other books in this series, even though they are all standalone who doesn't want to read them all.

A little light romance
Bliss - Lynsay Sands

I enjoy Lynsay Sands for one overwhelming reason. She's easy and enjoyable to read. I gravitate towards medium to lightweight stories for 75% of my reading materials, and Sands is always dependable for this. Her books do tend to be formulaic but knowing that going in lets me enjoy the minor details more. The best detail in this one is the dyslexic character. It made me stop and contemplate that dyslexia is not necessarily a modern problem, it may have just been interpreted as something else 99% of the time. Well done for formulaic fluff.

Book Review For: 'Bliss' by Lynsay Sands
Bliss - Lynsay Sands

'Bliss' by Lynsay Sands is the story of Hethe, Lord Holden and Lady Helen.
This book is a re-release and was first published around 2o10. I am so happy that it has been released again with its new cover. Ms. Sands books are some of my favorite books in the world. They are funny, emotional, hot and have great characters. I will never be able to say enough about her books.
This story is about Lord Holden who is a widower and Lady Helen who has never married writing to the King Henry...each write a letter to him complaining about the other. Those letters seem to arrive at the same time to the King. Which has turned out to be a pain in his side....when he talks over the problem with one of his men of courts he suggested that they marry each other. They will then either settle their arguments or kill each other he jokes. Hethe nor Helen have every actually met in person..although Hethe remebers seeing Helen with she was around 10 years old. But each only really know the other by stories and hearsay. Helen knows that she won't be able to break the engagement but thinks that if she can get Hethe to back out of the marriage then she is home free. So Helen tries several things to throw him off but Hethe goes forward with the King's orders.
I loved watching these two try to work past their schemes and then start working together.
This is a story that you will want to keep reading over and over...its not a one time read for sure!

Timing
Her Unexpected Hero - Kyra Jacobs

This story is book # 3, in the Checkerberry Inn series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader enjoyment and understanding, I recommend reading the series in order.

 

Maddie is in desperate need of some help at work, and a date to an event.  They may not go together, but the need for both is increasing.  There is a possibility of hope on these fronts, as long as she plays it right.

 

Cole is desperate for work to fulfill his dream.  He can help Maddie find a date.  They both have pasts and an attraction gaining heat.  Just a leap of faith keeping on track.

 

This was a cute, and sweet, and definitely clean romance.  My only issue is that I am not big on women who have insecurities rule their lives.  This was a twist on the love triangle trope, but handled in a clever way.  I give this book a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

On the Plus Side by Alison Bliss
On the Plus Side (A Perfect Fit) - Alison Bliss

This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in Books.

This was an okay read for me. I didn't like this book as much as I did the first book in the series, Size Matters. I hate to say it but there it is. There were parts that I liked a lot and other parts that made me want to pull my hair out. I did find this book to be a fairly quick read and I did want to see Valerie and Logan get their happily ever after.

Logan is back in town for the first time in a lot of years. He has just opened a new bar and needs it to be successful pretty quickly so that he can help his mom out. Valerie has always had a crush on her older brother's best friend and isn't sure what to do now that he is back in town. When Logan finds himself in need of a comptent bartender, Valerie decides that she is the right person for the job.

Let's get to some of the stuff that bothered me about this book. Valerie's brother is over the top. I hated him and can't understand why Valerie has allowed him to have so much say in her life. I liked Valerie a whole lot less just because she doesn't stand up to her brother. I think that this book would have been so much better if his character just wasn't around. Not only did Valerie not stand up to her brother, she didn't always make Logan listen to her. She is supposed to be this really confident character but she doesn't speak up when it really matters. I just didn't get it.

I liked Logan and Valerie as a couple and thought they had a lot of chemistry. I really did want to see them figure out how to make things work with each other. The sexier moments in this book were very well done and sometimes even laced with a bit of humor at times. I thought that their feelings for each other felt really genuine.

This book can easily be read as a stand alone story even though it is the second book in the series. I did enjoy seeing the characters from the first book in this story but this story would work well on its own. I plan to read more from Alison Bliss in the future.

I received an advance reader edition of this book from Forever (Grand Central Publishing) via NetGalley.

Initial Thoughts
I really liked some things about this book but other parts drove me crazy. It was really just an ok read for me in the end.
