Hold me
Thank You For Holding (On Hold Book 2) - Julia Kent,Elisa Reed

This is the 2nd book in the On Hold series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader enjoyment and understanding, I recommend reading this series in order.

 

Ryan has been in love with Carrie, since the first day they worked together.  She was dating someone else, so he waited patiently for his chance.  Now that it is here - he is afraid she will turn him down.

 

Carrie has been disgusted with her life lately.  First, her ex dumps her over the phone.  Then, she has to attend her best friends wedding, where her ex will be there with his new man.  Can she pretend her way out of this?

 

This book felt a little whiny.  I loved the characters.  I enjoyed the humor, heat, and pace of the story.  I was just very frustrated that the characters let so many things come before the love they supposedly have for one another.  Just my opinion.  I enjoyed the book overall.  I give this story a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

A holiday read.
Bad Mother's Diary - Suzy K Quinn

This is not a book I would normally have chosen but our book group wanted it for this month, so I thought I'd give it a go. It was an easy enough read, although rather predictable and the ending was a bit rushed. It felt like a cross between Sophie Kinsella (Shopaholic books) and Helen Fielding (Bridget Jones).

I cringed at the appearance of the author half way through, congratulating us for getting this far, I hope this does not become an author trend.

 

Juliette Duffy and Nick Spencer have a young baby and are planning to make it official and get married. They are living in London in Nick's mother's flat. Helen is the mother-in-law from hell, appearing almost daily, unannounced, complaining about anything and everything. I'm not keen on books that announce on the front cover that they are hilarious, as I rarely laugh in books, but some of the best moments were Juliette's come-backs to Helen.

 

Juliette and Nick's baby, Daisy is adorable but doesn't sleep well. Juliette is constantly exhausted, which will ring true to many mothers. Just getting out, without smears and marks on her clothes, is a major achievement. The issue with weight and dieting was a bit tedious, and very Bridget Jones's Diary, ditto the diary format, which felt rather too familiar.

Juliette bravely decides to run the London Winter Marathon, which was a nice touch. Then there was Alex, a childhood friend from a wealthy background, hmmm, way too predictable, but I won't add any spoilers.

 

By the way, I live in Dubai and there is no shortage of bikinis available - not just burkinis and Juliette supposedly discovered.

Zombie Bigfoot Review
Zombie Bigfoot (Creature Quest Series Book 1) - Nick Sullivan

Zombie Bigfoot took a while to get going, but once it did it was quite the read. This sets out to be Syfy level campy trash (not a bad thing!), and it succeeds with wild abandon. From the ridiculous characters like the hunter to the multitudes of pulpy kills it aims to please the low-budget movie aficionado. This takes a certain amount of skill, as its way too easy to fail horribly at producing something horribly good. Nick Sullivan does a great job, especially considering this is his début work.

As I said, Zombie Bigfoot was a bit of a slow burn in the beginning. I actually put the book down a few times and read stuff that was more immediately interesting. However, I kept coming back to it, and eventually, it paid off. By the end of the book, I was completely into it and rooting for Brighteyes and… well, Brighteyes. Though Littlefoot does make an impression of his own with one particular scene that was pure epicness.

Sullivan’s take on the zombie virus isn’t exactly new but it’s so rarely done that it’s still interesting to read. In Zombie Bigfoot just because you’re undead doesn’t mean you’re stupid. You’re filled with rage and think other members of your species (and others) look tasty, but you’re definitely not stupid.

The dialogue is good, the pacing is decent, and the action is delivered in spades. If you like overly dramatic gory kills (and would you be looking at this book review if you weren’t interested in that type of thing?), then Zombie Bigfoot will make you go all squishy inside.

One of the last things (literally) that impressed me was the epilogue(s) of Zombie Bigfoot. Normally I absolutely hate them, but Nick Sullivan did the perfect ones. The first one cracked me up and the second made me excited to see what happens in the next book.

Overall, Zombie Bigfoot was an enjoyable read that gave me just enough violence, action, and over-the-top drama to make me go all warm and fuzzy inside.

Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book from the author for review consideration.

Falling for Boston by Leslie Kate Book Blitz and Giveaway

Falling for Boston
Leslie Kate
Publication date: October 13th 2016
Genres: Adult, Comedy, Romance

As the youngest of four, Dylan has always been the baby. But don’t let that fool you; she’s not your average baby sister. Growing up with three older brothers left Dylan with a lack of femininity and in its place, a real guy’s girl personality. Sports, beer, burping, you name it; but don’t even think about going near her feet with a pair of heels.
When Dylan meets Tyler Vaughn, the famous and devastatingly attractive football superstar at work one morning, she’s thrilled by his good stats, not his good looks. But the wide receiver—and sweet romantic—throws her for a loop when he pursues her despite what she knows is missing, her feminine charm.
Now Dylan must reconcile the fact that this guy may actually like her, and even scarier, she may like him back. Dylan speaks sports and sarcasm fluently but romance, now that’s something completely foreign to her. What’s an emotionally-allergic guy’s girl supposed to do with a hopeless romantic?
EXCERPT:
“What?” I asked, concerned.
But he didn’t answer. Actually, he did, but not with words. He gently rubbed his hand over my bump before he slid it down brushing my cheek with his thumb and slid his hand back around my neck.
I didn’t know what to expect, I was so surprised by the intimacy of his touch and the wild beating of my heart in my chest at his closeness. Whereas this would be the part where I’d crack a joke to break the tension, I couldn’t even think. My brain was blank, barely registering the way his hands felt on my skin or the sight of him so close to my face. Formulating words were beyond me.
He slowly closed the distance between us. His other hand rose up and slipped it into my hair same as the first before he gently leaned down, stealing the lightest whisper-soft kiss.
He didn’t linger, it felt like the kiss was over in the blink of an eye. But even despite the brevity, I still felt like I had been given a swift kick in the chest. My heart was beating a frantic rhythm, and I was winded like I had just run an all-out sprint.
He pulled back enough so I could look up into those blue eyes of his that were so light that you could still make them out in the dark. His hands were still holding me, and my own hands were gripping his shirt tightly, clinging to him for balance.
What the hell just happened?
“What,” I stuttered, unable to speak because he’d annihilated my senses.
“I wanted to wait, to give you time. But tonight, watching you, and hearing you laugh, I just couldn’t stop myself. I had to kiss you,” Vaughn said, his words feathering over my skin.
“Oh,” I said, still stunned. I was still missing something. I continued to look at him, my brain misfiring. I couldn’t get it to work, I just stood there mindlessly.
Vaughn leaned down again, my stomach clenching in nervous anticipation. But this time, he only pressed a kiss to my forehead.
He finally stepped away from me, but he was smiling again. The seriousness that had been on his face earlier was wiped clean just like a Magna Doodle. “I better go.”
“Okay,” I answered breathlessly. My heart had yet to slow down. Vaughn chuckled quietly. “Goodnight, Dylan.” “Goodnight, Vaughn,” I whispered, unmoving.
“This is the part where you go inside,” he said, his smile widening. “Uh-huh,” I nodded stupidly.
Vaughn laughed before taking my keys out of my hand. He unlocked the door for me and gently pushed me through.
I looked back at him again, trying to riffle through the scores of information that had entered my brain in the last ten minutes but had yet to be processed.
“I’ll talk to you tomorrow,” he said smiling. He gave me a quick wave before he walked away.
I numbly walked up the stairs. It wasn’t until I was inside my apartment, sitting on my bed that my brain finally started working again.
I touched my fingers to my lips, the phantom feel of Vaughn’s moving against them still lingering.
He kissed me.
This whole time I had been convinced that I’d get over my crush eventually. I’d been sure that this was just a friendship, nothing more. But I was wrong.
Slippy? Slappy? Swanson? Samsonite, I had been way off. I smiled. He kissed me.
Well, that changed everything.

Shelby Mansfield is single, and prefers it that way. Or so she thought until Nash Bennett almost killed her. 

Well, not really, but Shelby doesn’t care. Ever since she met Nash by accident, her life is rolling down hill, fast. Her latest string of bad luck is sucking the life out of her, and Nash won’t go away. 

Shelby thought life was grand, she has a great job and her trusty B.O.B, and a medling best friend, but she never realized what she was missing until Nash. 

Nash is an EMT with the Charleston Fire Department and feels so bad about almost killing Shelby, though he knows that’s an overstatement. Then a real accident brings them closer together and he can’t seem to stay away from her. Something about her draws her to him and he won’t stop until he has her underneath him. 

Will Nash steal her heart away from B.O.B? Or will he breach her trust and send her running back to her trusty sidekick? Will Shelby give her heart away and still hang onto her independence? 

Or will disaster strike before she can make up her fickle mind?
