Complicated
Lost and Found Sisters - Jill Shalvis

Quinn has suffered a tragic loss with her sister now gone for two years.  The news she gets that sets her back even more, causes her to go looking for the why.  Arriving in the sleepy town, she finds there is someone else who suffered a loss that needs her.

 

Mick is just back visiting his mother.  Trying to help her move on from the pain and the house that haunts them both.  Meeting Quinn makes staying in town a bit more exciting.  She is in need of a steady hand, and it could be his that helps her up.

 

Sweet and fragile are two words I thought while reading this novel.  It has many great pieces that make it fun and still the author's work.  I just found it a bit slower than the norm.  The high points were the sexy times and the banter.  You should never miss those.  I give this story a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Sparks
Fighting for Redemption (The Elite Book 4) - Nicole Flockton

This is book #4, in The Elite series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader understanding and enjoyment, I always recommend reading series books in order.

 

Cassandra get told by her boss he is doing a favor for a friend, and she is recruited as the agent who will handle his client.  When she meets Brett, she realizes there is an attraction there.  Because of her past, she is wary about getting involved with another athlete.

 

Brett cannot believe the situation he has put himself in.  He knows he can do better.  Everyone is treating him like a child.  Except Cassandra, she sends enough heat his way to make an oven.  Can they build a future in the middle of cleaning up a mess?

 

The characters are just incredible to read.  The sizzle and heat between them just leaps off the page.  This series just gets better.  I give this story a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Bout of Books

 

My Bout of Books cycle 19 started at the RT convention and involved traveling back home, so there wasn't a focus on doing the daily challenges this time around. The Friday before I left for Atlanta I did a massive download binge from the NOOK Store's free romance section (I do this when I am stressed for some strange reason). I hoped to get to some of these relatively short books to help pump up my stats for this cycle.

 

Thursday:

Finished first chapter of London: The Novel by Edward Rutherfurd

Got to 36% of Forbidden (Old West #1) by Beverly Jenkins

 

Friday:

Finished Shimmy for Me: A California Belly Dance Novella by DeAnna Cameron

Got to 49% of Forbidden (Old West #1) by Beverly Jenkins

 

Saturday:

Read Selkie Heart by Sam Asher

Read Trouble in Tinseltown (Summer Flings #1) and Misbehaving in Miami (Summer Flings #2) by Aimee Duffy

 

Sunday:

Finished Forbidden (Old West #1) by Beverly Jenkins

 

Stats:

# of full length books read: 2

# of novellas/short stories: 4

# of plays: 1

# of pages read: 809

 

Save the Date! Bout of Books Cycle 20 is August 20th-27th

Review: Shimmy for Me: A California Belly Dance Novella by DeAnna Cameron
Shimmy for Me: A California Belly Dance novella - DeAnna Cameron

Didn't enjoy this one. Abby is an immature brat who is sinking due to her own impulsive decisions and rash thinking (or lack thereof). Derek was a prick and a brat. Insta-lust turning into insta-hate than into insta-love is a weird relationship progression. Nothing here worked for me and I won't be reading any more from this series.
