Quick Read
Hungry Boss - Charlize Starr Hungry Boss - Charlize Starr

Hungry Boss by Charlize Starr is an entertaining read.  This is a very quick read, a good choice for those with limited time for reading.  Ms. Starr has delivered a fun read.  Brooke has had a crush on her boss, Matt, for quite a while.  On a business trip to Vegas they end up drunk and married.  Brooke and Matt's story is filled with drama, humor and sizzle.  I enjoyed this story, even if the end was a little far fetched.  I did expect a longer read but instead found about 10 other books included with this book instead.  I didn't read them, so I can't give a review of the extra books.  The first book started with first-person format and that was enough for me to lose interest.  Hungry Boss is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

Hungry Like the Wolf by Paige Tyler
Hungry Like the Wolf - Paige Tyler

There's something off with the Dallas PD SWAT team. And it's not just the fact it's comprised of 16 easy-on-the-eyes hunks. Mackenzie Stone, investigative journalist, smells something fishy. The team is just too perfect. Everybody sings their praises and cites them as an example. They're involved in the community...No one is that perfect, so there must be something off. And Mac is sure she knows what is is...Turns out she has no idea.


This was a complete impulse buy for me, from a completely new-to-me author. And it blew me away. The plot was pretty tight, the suspense was gripping, the action scenes intense, and the story featured a pretty awesome cast of characters.

I loved the Pack, the family the SWAT team made. Their friendship and camaraderie really came through the pages and their interactions were a real treat to read.
The heroine more or less (except for those few pages in the last third of the story where I wanted to smack her) left me cold. I liked her enough, and I liked her paired with Gage, but that was pretty much it. The Pack stole the show in this one, and I didn't even mind the lack of any realistic romance. The one we got fell along the lines of paranormal-type romance, where the two protagonists are pretty much fated for each other, which absolves the author from making any kind of effort where the romance is concerned. Which I didn't mind in this case. At all.

I loved the action scenes, the tactical "drills" and "real-life" action, both in police work and personal lives of the two protagonists (that final confrontation in the penultimate chapter). There was nothing overblown about them; the writing was concise and to the point, creating the mood and conveying the images with ease and seemingly without much effort. Loved it. Intense, gripping, somewhat chilling at times. Loved it.

And then there's the world-building. Just when I thought there couldn't be much more to be invented in the werewolf world, Ms Tyler managed to surprise me with her little twist on just how a werewolf comes to be (there is no biting involved, just a quirk in the DNA). Although all tropes could not be avoided—and we got the The One spiel. Oh, well.

I'm looking forward to learning more about the DNA quirk...And of course, I can't wait to read more about the guys in the Special Wolf Alpha Unit.

Hungry for Love - Maya Sacher

Hungry for Love by Maya Sacher

Starts out with Elizabeth Evans and she's watching the flags and knows they symbolize hope and faith.

Her husband Jessie Klein she's visiting at the intensive brain facility. Was such a nonesense accident that left him this way.

She continues to perform dental procedures at her dad's dental practice.

She lost her husband but his body was still living...helped her when she baked cookies.

They had met at a book signing and she noticed his tat on his neck.  He knew his fashion and designers.

Story goes back even further to their upbringings, their meeting and their dating.

Loved hearing of the snow leopards and the things the zoo did for their comfort.

Aiden takes her out of her comfort zone and she likes that he pays attention to her. Her sister finds out and is happy she has moved on because Jessie is not there. He wants her to bond with his daughter.

The living mess starts when Jessie wakes up and as she sublet their place he will go live with her and Aiden and the daughter

What struck me at this point is the men aren't having an argument about who gets her for sex and what nights but it riles her as they can't show affection in any form towards one another while the other is in the room.

She's at a crossroads also in her job and wants something different and confronts her father. Her sister is also mixed up in everything....

Lots of twists and turns and unpredictable situations.

Didn't see the ending at all the way it comes out, whoa!

I received this review book from Net Galley and this is my honest opinion.

A Hungry Caterpillar
The Very Hungry Caterpillar - Eric Carle

The Very Hungry Caterpillar introduces readers to a caterpillar as it curbs its hunger. The caterpillar then becomes a beautiful butterfly who is not so hungry. This book allows teachers to showcase days of the week and counting to students. I would use this book to help my students learn sequencing along with counting and addition. My students will put the events in order and they will tell how much food the caterpillar ate during the week.
