Well, the first three in series were free ... just downloaded, I am weak
Hidden (Dragonlands #1) - Megg Jensen
Hunted (Dragonlands Book 2) - Megg Jensen
Retribution - Megg Jensen

Okay, I had a wild hair and looked at freebies again.  After resolving not to unless going to immediately read after a "look inside" or a friend strongly recommended one after reading.  

 

In in my defense, series has several books already available, so while some beginning ones were free on Amazon I downloaded.

 

Truthfully, I might not have looked twice at them based on that first cover with half a girl's face (I have decided I really have bad experiences with the half a girl's face covers for self/indie published works).  Booklikes daily deals showed book 2 with dragons which had me click to read synopsis.

Honesty
Unstoppable (Jersey Girls Book 2) - Lisa-Marie Cabrelli

This book is #2 in The Jersery Girls series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader enjoyment and understanding, I recommend reading this series in order.

 

Maureen suffers from low self-esteem.  She has allowed men to bully her in the past.  Now she is trying to get to know Brad.  Along the way she meets Stephen.  One makes the other man look like paste.  What's a girl to do?

 

This story was a bit of a triangle.  But only a bit.  You come to see who is really the worthy beau pretty quickly.  What I found nice to read was the banter, the mystery, the travel and a bit of heat.  This was a fun and witty read.  I give this book a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

 

 

***This early copy was given in exchange for an honest review only.

Review: Far From Home (Mangrove Island #2) by Neve Cottrell
Far From Home (A Mangrove Island Novel Book 2) - Neve Cottrell

A good contemporary romance about an English aristocrat (Caspian Warwick) hiding out on the island after resigning from his position in the House of Lords after one two many media scandals. The heroine (Rebecca Laughlin) is escaping to the island after an affair with her boss ends with her finding out he cheated with her co-worker. Rebecca is hired by Caspian and his political advisor/longtime friend Alistair to fix Caspian's image in time for him to run for an election in the House of Commons (representing Bunbury). This is a tall order, as the introduction of Caspian into the story was him waking up in his bed next to some random woman and with a hangover after a night of partying on his yacht.

 

I really liked Caspian; I loved Alistair and quite frankly he deserves his own book (he is ready to marry Jemima, Caspian's sister, but Caspian's mom wants Caspian married off first). Rebecca I couldn't relate to or connect with - she is impulsive to the point of TSTL territory, and she has bad judgment (sleeping with her boss who has quite the reputation as a love'em and leave'em sort). Her family is emotionally exhausting; her mother calls daily and her brother comes to the island to find the truth of Rebecca's sudden vacation. Yeah, I don't mind that Rebecca lied to them throughout the story.

 

Even though I didn't care for the heroine, I still raced through the book because it was entertaining and much better written than many contemporary romances I have read. I definitely bought into the HEA, but a HFN could have worked just as well. A copy editor is needed to polish this solid story.

Crashing Together (Silver Bay Book 2)
Crashing Together (Silver Bay Book 2) - Amelia Judd,Karen Dale Harris Crashing Together marched right into my heart and took over. Logan and Kat proved that a person should never be taken at face value. Logan loved to have a good time and be the life of the party but had feelings that ran deep and hurts hidden away from prying eyes. Kat was an independent woman dogged by disappointments and insecurities. Underneath her pride and his womanizing was a bond that needed a chance to grow. Amelia Judd packs a powerful message with some lighthearted style. Wisely heartwarming.

My weekend is going to be all about major list making for RT and reading. The weather here has turned really cold and I have been battling a cough and sore throat for over a week now. I want to finish reading With Every Letter - so much better than I had expected and I am hoping to continues to be so good. The feels, man, the feels. I have Far From Home to read for Booklikes-opoly. Finally The Obsession is a library book I want to get done before I leave for RT.
