Review: Clean Sweep by Ilona Andrews
Clean Sweep - Ilona Andrews

On the outside, Dina Demille is the epitome of normal. She runs a quaint Victorian Bed and Breakfast in a small Texas town, owns a Shih Tzu named Beast, and is a perfect neighbor, whose biggest problem should be what to serve her guests for breakfast. But Dina is...different: Her broom is a deadly weapon; her Inn is magic and thinks for itself. Meant to be a lodging for otherworldly visitors, the only permanent guest is a retired Galactic aristocrat who can’t leave the grounds because she’s responsible for the deaths of millions and someone might shoot her on sight. Under the circumstances, "normal" is a bit of a stretch for Dina.

And now, something with wicked claws and deepwater teeth has begun to hunt at night....Feeling responsible for her neighbors, Dina decides to get involved. Before long, she has to juggle dealing with the annoyingly attractive, ex-military, new neighbor, Sean Evans—an alpha-strain werewolf—and the equally arresting cosmic vampire soldier, Arland, while trying to keep her inn and its guests safe. But the enemy she’s facing is unlike anything she’s ever encountered before. It’s smart, vicious, and lethal, and putting herself between this creature and her neighbors might just cost her everything.

 

 

This was another fun book by Ilona Andrews. So far every book I read by them I loved, this book was no exception.

I have the special paperback edition   so it also has some Black and White original illustrations, which I believe were fan art, but I could be wrong, either way it was a nice touch and I really enjoyed them.

I really liked the story and the spin they put on magic and the creatures, like Vampires and Werewolves and so on. It was something different and it makes me curious to see where it still will go from here on.

I also really enjoyed the idea of the Inn and the innkeepers and the history of them but also  her Family. Another thing I really enjoyed was that we get to see the Inn grow with her throughout but also still learning about it. It was nicely done and was easy to read and enjoy.

I loved Dina, and I cant wait to learn more about her but also her family. I loved that she was strong and stood n her own two feet and stood her ground, oh Beast was just too awesome all together. I also really enjoyed Sean, and I think we will of course see much more about him, I’m also curious to learn more about him but also the shifters in this universe and to see what all he learned on his travels.

Arland, is another one I think we will see much more of, I liked him but he was not my favorite and I really hope we are not getting a love triangle here but we shall see.

Overall I really, really liked this book and I think I might start book tonight.

I rate it 4 ★

Clean Sweep (San Francisco Dragons #1) by Kate Willoughby
Clean Sweep - Kate Willoughby

Kate Willoughby is victorious with CLEAN SWEEP the first book in the San Francisco Dragons series. I adored this story. It was refreshing and original. Hockey defenseman, Cameron Bowes, is selected by his team to be on a television show that showcases his home. The problem is, his place is a complete mess. Enter, Dakota Kelly (aka Suzette), the maid his teammate hires for him, to clean his house.

CLEAN SWEEP was fun and captivating. The characters are genuine and likeable. Cam is a great guy but a complete slob. To his credit, he does work hard to become a neater person with Dakota’s guidance. He is sweet and great with kids. I was impressed how he speaks to Zinny about important topics. I respect Dakota. She is a devoted guardian to her niece, Zinny. Dakota put her life aside to raise Zinny and would do anything for her. Cam and Dakota complement each other.

Kate Willoughby did a fantastic job writing this story. There were unexpected twists and a solid plot. The characters were well-developed and grew throughout the story. They faced meaningful challenges and obstacles. I love the dogs. They added a lot to the story. This is a book that is hard to put down. It had a cute ending, that made the book feel complete. I cannot wait for the next book in the series. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

She’s the sexy maid a teammate hires as a joke.

 

Dakota Kelly has been working non-stop since she was unexpectedly awarded custody of her young niece. Though the little girl's grandmother swooped in to help, the old woman's overbearing ways have left Dakota no choice but to work as a janitor and moonlight as a maid in the hopes of one day getting some much-needed space from her niece's highly controlling Nana. Lucky for Cam, Dakota turns out to be the miracle worker he desperately needs, and he jumps at the chance to hire her as his live-in housekeeper. Soon, the two can no longer ignore their smoldering chemistry, and it seems turning their business relationship into a happily-ever-after for all three of them will be the next play. There's just one problem: Nana doesn't approve, and she's not about to let her granddaughter go without a fight.

Clean Sweep (San Francisco Dragons) by Kate Willoughby
Clean Sweep - Kate Willoughby

 

There are moments when the wrong size can prove to be the perfect fit. Clean Sweep highlights one of those times. Dakota and Cam have nothing in common. He's a playboy hockey player. She's a down on her luck housekeeper. What began with the best of intentions could be just right for this mismatched pair. He needs a clean house, she and her niece need a new beginning. Emotions are off the table, but their hearts have other plans. Willoughby is one of the best author's I've never read. She cuts right to the heart of matters with her witty dialogue, lovable characters and a heartwarming presentation that makes all the drama worthwhile. Clean Sweep is my introduction to the party. I couldn't help but fall in love with the show.
