Hot with issues
The Mistress Experiment (Mistress series #1) - Elizabeth Otto

Okeeey, that was sizzling. Hot power plays from the tame side and an alpha done right, so mostly good sexy points. And I liked the inner struggle about control and the need for it, and how it was treated.


I do have a couple of issues:

It needs editing: misspellings and wrong wording.

One instance of misuse of the word feminism that can be hand-waived but bothered me.

 

Then of course, the more or less stupid background detail: Alcoholism doesn't stop like that. But well...

And what's up with people's bad English??? Let me tell you, you spend a couple of months working and living with people speaking another language, you learn your basic grammar fast. And come on! Latin food?? Like the whole bit from Texas down is one big heterogeneous group? She's Puerto Rican, what's Mexican have to do with her sense of childhood, or homeliness???

 

That fucking ending:

so much girding and determination gathering, and the gal drops uni to say yes. Fuck no! Your contract ends in six month! You propose to go with HER, not the other way around.

(spoiler show)

 

Wow... I really got into it. I still had fun, and I'll read more by the author at some point.

Zero Day by Bobby Adair

 

Zero Day

 

Synopsis:

 

A new flu strain has been spreading across Africa, Europe, and Asia. Disturbing news footage is flooding the cable news channels. People are worried. People are frightened. But Zed Zane is oblivious.

Zed needs to borrow rent money from his parents. He gets up Sunday morning, drinks enough tequila to stifle his pride and heads to his mom’s house for a lunch of begging, again.

But something is wrong. There’s blood in the foyer. His mother’s corpse is on the living room floor. Zed’s stepdad, Dan is wild with crazy-eyed violence and attacks Zed when he comes into the house. They struggle into the kitchen. Dan’s yellow teeth tear at Zed’s arm but Zed grabs a knife and stabs Dan, thirty-seven times, or so the police later say.

With infection burning in his blood, Zed is arrested for murder but the world is falling apart and he soon finds himself back on the street, fighting for his life among the infected who would kill him and the normal people, who fear him.

Scorched by Jennifer L. Armentrout

 

Scorched

 

Synopsis:

 

Most days, Andrea doesn’t know whether she wants to kiss Tanner or punch him in the gut. He is seriously hot, with legit bedroom eyes and that firefighter body of his, but he’s a major player, and they can’t get along for more than a handful of minutes. Until now.

Tanner knows he and Andrea have had an epic love/hate relationship for as long as he can remember, but he wants more love than hate from her. He wants her. Now. Tomorrow. But the more he gets to know her, the more it becomes obvious that Andrea has a problem. She’s teetering on the edge and every time he tries to catch her, she slips through his fingers.

Andrea’s life is spiraling out of control, and it doesn’t matter that Tanner wants to save her, because when everything falls apart and she’s speeding toward rock bottom, only she can save herself.

Sometimes life makes you work for that happily ever after…

The Selection by Kiera Cass

 

The Selection

 

Synopsis:

 

For thirty-five girls, the Selection is the chance of a lifetime. The opportunity to escape the life laid out for them since birth. To be swept up in a world of glittering gowns and priceless jewels. To live in a palace and compete for the heart of gorgeous Prince Maxon.

But for America Singer, being Selected is a nightmare. It means turning her back on her secret love with Aspen, who is a caste below her. Leaving her home to enter a fierce competition for a crown she doesn’t want. Living in a palace that is constantly threatened by violent rebel attacks.

Then America meets Prince Maxon. Gradually, she starts to question all the plans she’s made for herself–and realizes that the life she’s always dreamed of may not compare to a future she never imagined.

The time has come for one winner to be crowned.

Can’t Resist a Cowboy (Paint River Ranch #3) by Elizabeth Otto
Can't Resist a Cowboy - Elizabeth Otto

Synopsis:

 

He’s always been her weakness…

Injured and discharged, Marine Levi Haywood has returned to his family’s ranch to heal and start a new life. After all, once a cowboy, always a cowboy. The only problem? Life at the ranch has moved on since he joined the service, and suddenly his role in the family business is much less clear. And things get a lot more confusing when the woman he left behind returns home.

Carrie Lynn Waite has never known a time when she didn’t love Levi. They were childhood sweethearts, but because of her health, she was forced to move to the city, away from the ranching life. Now Carrie’s come home only to learn her family’s ranch is in trouble and Levi is back, along with an undeniable attraction she can’t resist. But some things never change, forcing Carrie to choose the future laid out before her…or the cowboy she could never resist.

 

 

My thoughts:

 

Having read the previous two books of the Paint River Ranch series and some other books by Elizabeth Otto I was looking forward to this book.

I can’t say that I was disappointed, I really enjoyed this book. The story and its characters.

In this third book we finally get to meet and to get to know better Levi. Like his brothers he is very charming and a cowboy through and through, on top of that he is a Marine. What more can we ask for?

He is stubborn and meets his match with Carrie. He also is still dealing with his war injuries, mentally and physical. But that won’t stop him to help out on the ranch and take on another major project to safe Carrie’s family ranch.

The Cowboy Way
Can't Resist a Cowboy (Entangled Indulgence) (Paint River Ranch) - Elizabeth Otto

Levi Haywood and Carrie Lynn Waite have been in love for years.  What they have not been is in the same town.  He left her and joined the Marine's, she left and went to anither state to stay with family.  It has been 6 years since they have seen one another.

 

Levi is back for good and investing in her father's farm.  He now owns the majority and is planning to make changes to bring steady income.  Changes Carrie Lynn will not approve of if the alter the state of the land.

 

Carrie Lynn, comes for a visit to see her father and give him bad news about her health.  This visit should be bittersweet.  Until she sees Levi.  Runs into him everywhere.  He is working the ranch, and following her around.  He says they have things to discuss.

 

Levi wants to tell Carrie Lynn how he feels.  How he has always felt.  He and her father made the decision to send her away 6 years ago and give her a better life than she would have had bouncing around with a Marine.  Now, he knows what he wants and it's Carrie Lynn.

 

They are both incredibly stubborn and strong characters.  You can feel the sincerity of their feelings, though.  I love the sweet story and how it continues a great series. This is book # 3 in the Pain River Ranch series.  I give this story a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
