Mr. Panda from Steve Antony’s bestselling, funny manners book Please, Mr. Panda is back!

 

This time, Mr. Panda’s black-and-white animal friends are curious what he’s making, but only one has the patience to stick around. An alpaca, an aardvark, rabbits, and a bird all wind up missing out. It’s the penguin who declares, “I’ll wait, Mr. Panda.” The penguin is rewarded with a big SURPRISE: a giant doughnut!

 

I’ll Wait, Mr. Panda is a graphic, kid-friendly way of teaching the value of patience and the importance of saying “thank you.”

When the book fair came to my sons school. I let him pick out any one book and I’ll Wait, Mr. Panda was his pick. He loves this Panda book. We read it several times a week, which is great. That’s what you want when you get a book. One you will enjoy over and over again.

 

I like this Panda book; because it’s all about teaching patience and politeness. The Panda expects patience, but is often disappointed; yet in the end he is generous to the patient penguin. The Panda does seem gruff, but I still feel this is a nice story to read to young kids (preschool/kindergartners) and the illustrations are cute.

Bought By The Sheikh Next Door - A Small Town Sweet Romance (Small Town Sheikhs Book 3)
Bought By The Sheikh Next Door - A Small Town Sweet Romance (Small Town Sheikhs Book 3) - Holly Rayner Kelsie may be naive, but she's no pushover. Those skills come in handy when she meets her new next door neighbor. Masoud has an agenda and he intends to see it through. Let the scrimmage begin. Raynor takes the fantasy of love and turns it into a realistic, sweet and topsy turvy rollercoaster ride. Bought by the Sheikh Next Door is a savory treat for the senses.

Tangling with a White Wolf—Best Christmas Ever, or Real Trouble?

 

Romance writer Candice Mayfair never missed a deadline in her life—until an accidental bite from a werewolf puppy turns her into an Arctic wolf shifter. She's forced to isolate herself in the wilderness to cope with her unpredictable shifting while she works on her deadlines. After all, for Candice, Christmas is just another day.

 

Enter private investigator Owen Nottingham, a wolf shifter hired to find Candice so she can collect her inheritance. They have a real problem: she must arrive home in human form, and that's not happening during the full moon. Besides, Owen has a new mission: to convince the pretty she-wolf her best move is to join his pack in time for Christmas...and to prove he's the only wolf for her.

Dreaming of a White Wolf Christmas is book two in the White Wolf series by Terry Spear. It’s part of her bigger series Heart of the Wolf.

 

The characters featured in Dreaming of a White Wolf Christmas I remember reading about them in Legend of the White Wolf and of corse they popped up again in another installment in the series, so I have some familiarity with them.

 

This novel was on ok read. It didn’t wow me or pull me into it. Everything was simple and happens very quickly. The major setup happens in the fist chapter, making it feel rushed. The tone of the book is light. Only touching upon things that should have more importance. For example; the introduction to our heroine and hero, is rushed. We don’t get much depth for the characters. Which made me not fall for them or be invested in them. They where just their.

 

The romance between Candice and Owen has just a little spice and sweetness. The sweetness was just a little too sweet and so the descriptions got to be a bit repetitive and straightforward.

 

As for the world building. I’ve always had trouble understanding it. Reading in order would be best, but even then I’m still confused. At the start of the series the world doesn’t know about shifters. They also live very very long lives, but then things kinda change on how long they live, but they are still in hiding from humans. I have always felt like the author wasn’t sure on what direction she wanted to go. Things kinda change suddenly on the life span for the shifters and we still don’t know why this is.

 

After reading Dreaming of a White Wolf Christmas I’m kinda questioning what I saw in Ms. Spear’s wolf series. From what I remember in the earlier books they use to have more depth to the characters and more action, suspense, a dilemma they had to over come, a bad person after them, or some kind of mystery to solve, so that things actually felt like something was going on, but now it feels blasé. From now on if I do pick up Ms. Spear’s I’ll be grabbing the books from my library instead of purchasing. This series and author have lost their appeal to me and I no longer have a big interest in the writing.

 

Rated: 3 Stars

Live hard, f*ck harder and make their own rules. Those are the cornerstones the six Men of Haven bleed by: taking what they want, always watching each other's backs and loving the women they claim with unyielding tenderness and fierce passion.  

 

There's no code Knox Torren can't break. He knows no limits when it comes to uncovering intel, especially on anyone who crosses his family. But a skip tracer with a sketchy history presents a puzzle he can't solve. When he finally meets the statuesque blonde with the intoxicating Russian accent, he'll try anything to unearth her secrets. 

 

Darya Volkova has been living under an assumed identity for years. Searching for a job that will take her out of the dangerous life she's built, she has her sights set on Knox: the best hacker in the business. From their first meeting, though, something far more intimate than a professional connection develops.  

 

Darya must overcome still-healing wounds to trust that Knox will take care of her in all the ways she needs. And Knox will do whatever it takes to make sure whatever—or whomever—she's running from never touches his woman again.

Tempted & Taken is book four in the Haven Brotherhood series by Rhenna Morgan. The Haven Brotherhood is a group of unconventional alpha males that have become family. These men are possessive, hot, bossy, protective, successful, and well connected. Once they fall, they fall hard.

 

This one didn’t hook me like the previous books in the series. Knox and Darya where just ok. I never feel for their romance. It just felt like a lot of sex between them, not much else. Most of the book was Knox trying to keep his distance from Darya. When he can’t stay away, well they have sex, and then it’s back to him staying away. After about a month of this, they finally try for a relationship spending time at each others places, but all we see is their strong attraction and their sexy times. Pretty much the romance takes place within a two month period; before they are wanting to get married.

 

As for the suspense on why Darya is on the run. Well, we don’t see things pick up until much later in the book around the 315 page mark. I get why she ran, but it wasn’t an outstanding suspenseful reason.

 

Unfortunately; Tempted & Taken didn’t win me over. I wasn’t feeling the romance nor the lead characters. I’ve loved the previous novels released, but not this one. I guess their will be one in a series that just doesn’t work.

 

Rated: 3 Stars
