Lone Star Lovers (Dallas Billionaires Club) by Jessica Lemmon
Lone Star Lovers (Dallas Billionaires Club) - Jessica Lemmon

 

If love makes things happen, denial must get the ball rolling. When it comes to matters of the heart Zach and Penelope are the worst of liars. If actions speak louder than words, why aren't they listening? Lone Star Lovers is an amusing reintroduction to a couple of old friends. Fire has begun to melt the ice, but the real complications have yet to begin. The true gift of an author is to take you out of the real world and entangled you in your imagination. Jessica Lemmon has that gift. Saucy and sweet.

Awesome!
Dangerous Moves (Dallas After Dark) - Ka... Dangerous Moves (Dallas After Dark) - Karen Rock

Dangerous Moves by Karen Rock is a fabulous read.  Ms. Rock has given us a book that is well-written and loaded with amazing characters.  Blake and Reese's story is packed with suspense, drama, sizzle and humor...and let's not forget, male strippers.  I love the suspense in this story, had me sitting on the edge of my seat.  I enjoyed reading Dangerous Moves and look forward to reading many more books by Karen Rock.  Dangerous Moves is part of the Dallas After Dark Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

 

I won a copy of this book from Goodreads.

Piecing Together a Love Story
The Patchwork Bride - Sandra Dallas
The Persian Pickle Club - Sandra Dallas

Ellen is getting older and wondering how long she and her husband, Ben, can stay on their beloved ranch, when her granddaughter, June, gets cold feet and runs from her wedding. Ellen is working on June’s wedding quilt, which contains pieces of the wedding dresses from the women of the family. As the two women sit together, Ellen tells June the stories of one woman, named Nell, and how it took her 3 tries to find the man she would marry. The story of Nell’s first beau, Buddy, is full of cowboy swagger, the second story, about James, is a bit of a shocker, and the story of predictable, solid Wade has a not-so-predictable twist in the end.

The strengths of this book are the depictions of the relationships between the women characters, and the easygoing voice the story is told in. Readers who liked The Persian Pickle Club (which is referred to in this story) are sure to enjoy this latest novel.

Living Dead in Dallas
Living Dead in Dallas - Charlaine Harris I'm so glad I decided to re-read these books now that I've finished watching True Blood. I remembered they were better than the show (although there were a few things I preferred on the show like how Lafayette didn't die in the show), but there's so much that was left out or condensed and altered for the show that I didn't really love. Like, little moments with Eric (Eric and Pam were two of my favorite characters in the books and on the show) that weren't in the show, but were really amusing in the books. Like when Sookie is going to go to the orgy party and Bill is out of town so she calls Eric and asks him to be her bodyguard. He then shows up in neon lycra and a trenchcoat. Book Eric is even more entertaining, imo, than True Blood Eric. I'm also pretty sure that Pam's opinion of Sookie is very different in the books than on the show. I'm not far enough into the re-read, and my memory is too rusty to be sure, but I want to say Pam and Sookie were actually friends, or at least quite friend-like, in the books. On the show, Pam despised Sookie. I mean, it was funny sometimes, but I preferred their relationship in the books, if I remember right.

New York to Dallas by J.D. Robb
New York to Dallas (In Death) - J.D. Robb

A ghost from the past is back...

Isaac McQueen, a dangerous pedophile Eve arrested mere months out of the Academy, has escaped from prison and wants to continue the work she'd interrupted twelve years ago. He also wants revenge on the cop that put him in a cage...And the confrontation will force Eve to face her own past as more ghosts appear.


Oh, wow. That's pretty much all I can say at this point, having just finished the book.

It was everything I came to expect from a book in this amazing series; suspenseful, dramatic, intriguing, intense, with strong whiffs of danger, and tugging at all possible heartstrings.
The story was an emotional experience for the heroine and for the reader as we all experience it alongside her, feel her pain, her fear, the confusion of a child still buried in her psyche, and understand just what Roarke is going through.
It was raw, it was painful, even heart-rendering at times...And it showed us that some people will stand, pick themselves up, dust themselves off and go on, no matter what.

I loved the way the story was structured, the way Eve at the beginning felt like a fish out of water since she was out of her usual environment, without her usual "entourage", but slowly got her game back on and hit her stride, one big metaphor for how she acted in the case, echoed in her behavior, her thinking patterns, and her investigative skills.
At first, she was lost, a little shaky in her confidence, got a lot more shaky with everything that surfaced during the investigation, but in the end rose above it, put what happened to her to rest (as much as it is even possible), and conquered her subconscious fears to finish what she started, almost where she started with the big showdown almost bringing her life full circle.

It was weird not having the usual gang present, beyond a few 'link contacts, creating that sense of isolation, of displacement Eve felt, in the reader as well. But she had Roarke there through it all, the one person in the world who truly understands her, who gets her, and who stick no matter what crap she throws at him. It was nice seeing them alone together with all the hiccups, the fights, the emotional baggage that's been toned down in the recent books, and it was, as usual, amazing observing their relationship, the ever-growing and ever-strengthening bond between them.

Yes, the suspense aspect, the villain, the motive, the gruesome things he did and thought, were intense and gripping, but the real center of the plot were the characters, their interactions and especially the relationship between Eve and Roarke.
