Fever Pitch (Love Lessons Book 2) by Heidi Cullinan 4 Star Review
Fever Pitch: Love Lessons, Book 2 - Heidi Cullinan,Iggy Toma

Sometimes you have to play love by ear.

Aaron Seavers is a pathetic mess, and he knows it. He lives in terror of incurring his father’s wrath and disappointing his mother, and he can’t stop dithering about where to go to college—with fall term only weeks away. Ditched by a friend at a miserable summer farewell party, all he can do is get drunk in the laundry room and regret he was ever born. Until a geeky-cute classmate lifts his spirits, leaving him confident of two things: his sexual orientation, and where he’s headed to school.

Giles Mulder can’t wait to get the hell out of Oak Grove, Minnesota, and off to college, where he plans to play his violin and figure out what he wants to be when he grows up. But when Aaron appears on campus, memories of hometown hazing threaten what he’d hoped would be his haven. As the semester wears on, their attraction crescendos from double-cautious to a rich, swelling chord. But if more than one set of controlling parents have their way, the music of their love could come to a shattering end. 




So good! Heidi Cullinan is taking all my money.


Giles and Aaron are young and finding themselves. The stumble a great deal. Aaron very shy and lonely though on the outside he doesn't look it. Giles is very brave with everything but his heart.


They don't take enough risks with each other at first but as they grow into themselves they grown into friendship and a deep abiding love.


This is a really grand romance.


The whole cast is wonderful.


Great series. Great book.

Dragon Fever: A Dark Kings Novella - Donna Grant

Asher is sent to Paris to the annual World Whiskey Conversation instead of Con. Rachel is sent in to investigate him and write an article revealing all of their secrets to the world. What neither of them suspects is that the moment they meet sparks fly and a fever rises between the two of them. When it is revealed that Ulrik sent Rachel, Asher is disappointed in yet another human, but he turns the tables on her and he reveals his past and in so doing wins her trust and loyalty. Of course, he then has to rescue her from Ulrik, which gives us a spectacular surprise about how far Ulrik has come with his magic. Typical goodness. Great passion. Though a novella, I didn’t mind the rushed romance. I like coming back to the Dragon Kings again and again. Love me some DG!!

Fever - Lauren DeStefano

Warning: There will be spoilers in this review for the first book in the series, Wither.

Gabriel and Rhine have escaped and they are on the run, trying to make it back to Manhattan in search of her twin brother when they are captured by the ring-mistress of a carnival of prostitution. Once again Rhine finds herself in a compromising situation, and her plan of action is to simply go along with everything, gain Madame's trust and wait for the perfect opportunity to escape. This was all too reminiscent of book 1.

I found myself cringing by Rhine's actions throughout this book. The only thing she seemed to excel at, was getting caught. Each time she was caught by someone sinister, and this happens multiple times, she does not put up much of a fight. In fact, not only does she not attempt to flee, at one point she even goes willingly. I was in disbelief.

Rhine is still wearing Linden's wedding ring. I kept wondering why she hadn't removed it, and why Gabriel didn't seem to notice or care. Why would she want to keep a reminder of the terrible situation she escaped from? That was one of the many reasons Gabriel and Rhine's relationship fell flat to me. I saw no connection, no passion. I also felt that Rhine and Gabriel spent most of the book drugged up, sleeping or hallucinating which caused the story to plod along at a snail's pace. 
I had a hard time liking the characters (new and old) this time around. As with the last book, I enjoyed DeStefano's writing style, and I am in no way averse to giving her other series a try. I'm afraid this particular series simply isn't for me.

I've got a fever, a fever for more Velvet! :/
Fever - Elizabeth Lowell

Unfortunately it had taken Rye two weeks to convince Edward McCall II that his son would not, repeat not, marry some useless Houston belle just to get his hands on the Angus bull.


Oh '80s books, never change.


"Little girl, you've got a lot to learn," he muttered under his breath. "And you've come to just the man who can teach you."


Umm, maybe do.


This one obviously had some dated problems and the hero clung to his "woman only want me for my money" bitterness for far too long. Lisa's actions didn't warrant it and it made that drama feel forced.


Even with those issues though, I really enjoyed this one. It scoots along pretty quickly and the dry sense of humor was delightful. I also want to claim Lisa as my buddy if there is ever an apocalypse, girl can get it done. Her background makes her sweet innocence believable and not icky and we do get glimpses of her backbone; I want a novella of these two from down the road where Lisa puts Rye even more in his place.


Rye needed to grovel just a bit more but the emotion he shows at the end (he cries!) gave an unexpected heartwarming ending. This takes place on a cattle ranch and I enjoyed the western touches and the feeling of being transported to a different place. You'll have to gird your loins for the term "Velvet Fever" to be used incessantly but hey, who couldn't use another euphemism for sex in their back pocket.


Bottom line, this was a little bit of a gem and if you ever see it at a garage sale or used book store, scoop it up.


"I've been missing you all my life and didn't even know it."

Fever (Falling For A Rose Book 4) - Stephanie Nicole Norris

"Fever" by Stephanie Nicole Norris


My Thoughts....


This was another wonderful series ...'Falling For A Rose Book 4' that dealt with Josiah and Santana where you will be kept on the edge of your seat turning the pages to see what was coming next.

From the last series we are able to see these two characters becoming interested in each other but how far will this go for them.  I liked how this author was able to put together another well written read about the 'Rose' brothers.  Will these two be able to pull off this fake boyfriend/girlfriend to there friends?  What will happen in the end as these two have totally changed their mind of how it had been planned in the beginning [to make his father happy] had certainly changed and definitely not the way they truly felt about each other now.  Had Josiah truly fallen in love with Santana? Had Santana truly fallen in love with Josiah?  I loved the wedding in how it all comes out. So, will these two finally get their HEA?  You will have to pick up "Fever" to see!
