Possibly my fav 2017 read
The Duchess Deal - Tessa Dare

This book made my cold, dead heart feel all the feels. I am in looooove! Let’s start with our protagonist, Leia, nerd girl extraordinaire, graphic novelist, and soon-to-be mother thanks to a one-night stand at a comic convention with Batman. I mean, I can’t even. I was already so happy.

 

The Almost Sisters has so much depth: it tackles family, sisterhood, fathers, dementia, and reconciling a vision of the American south that is so welcoming with the “second South” involving deeply entrenched racism. There was humour and heart and unlike some other Southern-set stories I’ve read recently, these characters popped off the page, crackling with life and spirit and individuality.

 

I cannot recommend this book enough. It gets all the stars and then some.

"Dare" by Deidra D. S. Green

 

My Thoughts.....

 

As this 9th installment in the Chloe Daniels Mysteries we get some more new characters featuring Shane Budrow and James Summers.  All that is left to say is from that race someone was left dead.  'Was this a accident or something more."  As in all of the former series this author lets us visit with a group of pass characters that will catch the reader up to some of what has now happened to them.  You will have to read the earlier series to find out more about there situations as the story continues on.  Question like...Will Drake be able to make it out of this mess he is in with Carmen?  Will Anna Black and Lenora's situation finally be found out? What about Major and Mayven...are they alive?  How was Addison able to stop what was going on in her life with that stalker? Has Addison found love with Canaan? As for Michael and Chloe are they about to go to another level as they seem to be falling in love?  I am sure these questions and so much more will be discussed as you read through this series of  'Dare.' I guess we will have to go to the next series... Michael and Chloe:  Chloe Daniels Surprise (Chloe Daniels Mysteries Book 10) to find out what next especially for these two.

Fantastic Historical Romance!
To Dare the Duke of Dangerfield - Bronwen Evans

To Dare the Duke of Dangerfield is another amazing story by Bronwen Evans.  Ms Evans has done it again, had me glued to my kindle.  This story is well-written, gotta love a smooth read.  Caitlin and Harlow's story is packed with drama, humor, action and naughty bits.  I love the characters in this book!  I enjoyed every page of To Dare the Duke of Dangerfield and can't wait for my next book by Bronwen Evans.  To Dare the Duke of Dangerfield is book 1 of the Wicked Wagers Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

 

I voluntarily read a free copy of this book that I received from Instafreebie.

"Only If You Dare" by Stephanie Nicole Norris

 

My Thoughts....

 

What will happen when Desiree decides to quit her job?  Will something happen that causes her to remain on the job? I loved how this author gives the reader one interesting plot for this well told story.  Well, when Julian Rose the brother of Jaden Rose decides he wanted Desiree to work for him on a photo project, her life will definitely change. But in what way will this happen for Desiree because she had a hands off policy toward men due to what had happened with her earlier in her life where she seemed to take out her 'frustrations and pain out on everyone around her' definitely leaving her with a lot of trust issues especially with men.  Will Julian be able to help change all of that for Desiree? Well, you will just have to pick up this wonderful love, with some well developed characters, hot love scenes and even a believable read that will keep your interest turning the pages till the end. I did love Desiree's best friend Santana.  Wow, to have a friend like her to want to move and start a new life just to be around your best friends...left me still saying WoW!

 

Julian was definitely another Rose brother to add to that wonderful colorful collection of brothers om this good read!  I will say that I may have missed something in the read ... like what was up with that guy that broke into the girls apartments and what was he really up to by doing this to them?  Oh well, I still enjoyed the read.

 

Now, I will be waiting for the next  series 'Falling For A Rose Book 4' that deals with Desiree's best friend Santana and another Rose brother...Josiah in "Fever.

Production line romantic suspense
Dare You to Run: An Unbroken Heroes Novel - Dawn Ryder

A lot of tell, no show. Insta-lust/attraction between our leads, with a first kiss off-screen. The time jumping was a bit off and made it kind of a stop and go feel. It's like the author knew where she wanted the story to go but didn't take the time to connect the dots. The second half became just a sex-fest between leads. 
Pretty interesting suspense arc (continued from book 1) with shady, powerful, and working towards the greater good people. 
Heroine was ok with wanting to control, and taking steps to, her own life but she was put into kidnapping situation after kidnapping situation so felt like just a token to show off hero's soldier skills. 
Hero was bit of a blank slate just growling with intimidating stares that also had burning eyes. 
The editing and lack of fluid story connection made this pretty shallow and surface. Gives you the military hero and needs rescuing heroine tropes but no depth to them.
