Their Emerald (The Jeweled Ladies Book 2... Their Emerald (The Jeweled Ladies Book 2) - Maggie Chase

Their Emerald is my first book by Maggie Chase, so I didn't know what to expect.  This is a menage book, so it may not be everyone's choice of reading material.  There is menage sex in this story, also m/m sexy bits.  That being said, the story is outstanding.  Their Emerald is well-written.  The characters are amazing.  The story line has plenty of drama and balances out the sex scenes.  I enjoyed this book and would happily read more from Maggie Chase in the future.  Their Emerald is book 2 of The Jeweled Ladies Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

THE BEAST'S DESIRE by Emerald Ice
The Beast's Desire - Emerald Ice
  A different take on Beauty and the Beast. I enjoyed it. I was surprised by the "Beast." I liked how instinctive protecting each other was for them. The story held my interest. I wanted to know more of this community.

#26 - The Emerald City of Oz by L. Frank Baum
The Emerald City of Oz - L. Frank Baum

Dorothy’s Aunt and Uncle are in trouble at the farm. They do not have enough money to pay everything and they might be expulsed. Dorothy says to them they could go and live in Oz with her and Ozma agrees to that. So, once again, we found ourselves in the beautiful Land of Oz where Dorothy is going to live some great adventures and meet some new people.

Like every time I read an Oz story, I’m amazed at how funny it is. This seems like it was the last story about Oz but I know there are many others, so I am not sure about what happened here, I guess I will see when I read the others.

I had a lot of fun reading this book and I think Oz is one of the greatest story ever, I’m totally fond of this world.

Honor before Heart
Honor Before Heart (Emerald Belles, #1) - Heather McCorkle

'Honor Before Heart' by Heather McCorkle is book One in the "Emerald Belles" series. This is the story of Sean and Ashlinn. This is a different kind of story that I usually go to but I feel in love with the cover and wanted to read it. I am glad that the cover brought me into this book as I might have missed this story to be honest. I am usually not a fan of War story/ Love story but this did have a somewhat different look into their love story. This deals with how someone struggles with the lost of love ones during war. How hard it is to deal with the possibly of loosing a love one and getting the strength up to trust that all will be well. I thought both Sean and Ashlinn were good strong main characters and it was easy to want them to be together. "My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read."

Review, Better Late Than Never
Sealed with a Kiss (Emerald Lake Billionaires Book 1) - Leeanna Morgan

This story starts off kind of similar to "Sleepless in Seattle" in that the daughter mails a letter to Rachel's Bride's Maids Club to ask that they help find a wife for her daddy. She doesn't leave a last name or any other way to get in touch with her, but Rachel figures it out when Bella comes into the classroom she's subbing for. After that, we depart from the light hearted RomCom.

 

We get glimpses that there is something much more serious going on in John's life. There is a reason he's so protective of his daughter, and even though it takes Rachel a while to catch on, she only wants Bella to be happy. I love that she doesn't just cave to everything that John tells her to do. She tries to be helpful, even if it's a little outside of his comfort zone.

 

These two fight the attraction for as long as they can in an effort to protect themselves, each other, and Bella. After a blow up, where John says lots of mean things and fires Rachel, we have a PG-13 make up closed door scene. And it's all downhill from there. Which is what usually happens in romance novels. However, I appreciate that the split up after sex isn't because of something stupid like they didn't talk. Rachel asks John straight up what it meant, how he feels, and he just can't man up to his own feelings. That feels like a natural situation to me.

 

Anyway, we eventually get our HEA, although it kind of felt rushed to me for some reason.

 

I give SEALed with a Kiss a 4, with a PG-13 rating.

 

1-5 scale and what it means:

1: I couldn’t even finish it / just plain bad

2: I hope I didn’t pay for this / disappointing

3: I didn’t hate it, but it was still missing something / forgettable but inoffensive

3.5: On the line between good and ok / like, not love

4: Solid mind candy / worth reading

4.5: So very close to perfection! / must read

5: I could not put it down and I’m still thinking about it! / a true treasure

 

Movie Ratings in relation to my review:

Clean--Hallmark movies, some kissing, no nudity, no sex on or off "screen"

PG--Some innuendo but nothing kids don't hear every day, sex is all closed door

PG-13--some language (swear words not related to sex), more talk about sex, heavy petting, removal of clothing on screen, but sex is closed door.

 R--swearing (can be related to sex), feels like the whole story is about the sex and not the relationship or some other plot
