Soul Deep by Pamela Clare
Soul Deep: An I-Team After Hours Novella (Volume 2) - Pamela Clare

When Janet Killeen slides off the icy road, and spends the night freezing in her car, the last person she wants to rescue her is Jack West, the asshole rancher who’d thrown her off his ranch the year before when she was protecting Laura Nilsson.

But it is Jack who rescues her, offering his home for the week, hoping to make up for his brusque manner the last time he met the beautiful FBI agent and soon Janet stirs more than Jack’s protective and nurturing instincts...


What a perfect little story this was. It made me smile, it made me laugh, it made me happy.

I loved the MCs were an older couple, because let’s face it, older people are in love, too, feel attraction, and have sex. And Jack and Janet were such a lovely couple to read about. Both adult, mature, in tune with their feelings, nature and disposition. They actually communicated, and they were equals.

Their romance might’ve been rather quick, their feelings instantaneous, but as Jack said, at that age, there’s no point beating around the bush. It was quick, but their maturity and age helped with the realism of it, if I might use that word.
They knew their own minds and their characters, they knew what they were looking for, they knew what they needed, and when they actually found it, they embraced it. Individually, they were strong characters that slowly turned into a power couple. And their courtship was romantic, sweet, sexy, and, yeah, very hot.

The suspense was interesting, maybe not really serving to propel the story and/or the romance forward, but provided a nice little mystery.
The last part of the story was a bit sappy, true, but it brought a stupid grin on my face, so I’m happy.

The entire story brought a stupid grin to my face. I’ve loved Jack West since he appeared in his son’s book and I’m glad he found his second happily ever after, and they were absolutely adorable together...And that last surprise. Yeah, I’m grinning again.

Heaven Can't Wait by Pamela Clare
Heaven Can't Wait (I-Team, #1.5) - Pamela Clare

Will and Lissy are only two weeks shy of getting married when she proposes a wager. They won't have sex until after the wedding, and the one who begs first, loses.


A premise that would've been cute and fun if it weren't for the reason behind the bet. As Will said, Lissy didn't want to be romantic, she didn't fully trust him thanks to her ice-queen mother. The true reason behind the "bet" and the fact the idiot of the heroine almost ruined a great relationship (she would've accomplished the fact if it wasn't for the perfectly placed scare just before the end, which magically solved everything) ruined any enjoyment I could've mustered in reading this.

The other characters were great; the hero, the team from the Denver Independent, there were quite a few funny dialogues between Will and his friends, and between Tessa and the other girls thanks to an "incident" at Will and Lissy's house, while the heroine was an idiot, her mother was a bitch...And the rest of it was sex (pretty hot sex, don't get me wrong) and loads of sexual frustration.

I could've been much better.

May-December Romance
Soul Deep: An I-Team After Hours Novella (Volume 2) - Pamela Clare
 
 
I almost forgot how much I enjoyed this series, I really need to get back to it and not wait another two years to do it.
 
Nadine's 4 star rating
 
If you read Skin Deep then you know Jack, he is Nate's father, and if you've read Striking Distance then you should remember Janet FBI Special Agent Killeen and the fact that Jack threw her off his property while she was helping with the investigation of Laura Nilsson's kidnapping. To say that their encounter this time around was different would be a mild statement.

Janet was driving to a resort for some much needed R&R when her car swerves off the road and becomes stuck in the snow, thankfully she is prepared because it takes almost 24 hours before Jack West finds her....she plowed into a fence on the Cimarron Ranch which is the West Family's Ranch. Jack was much friendlier this time around, maybe it was the circumstances in which they met or maybe it was the fact that she was a damsel in distress, either way it was nice to see that he would treat her with respect and care especially after she had been through with being shot.

I loved Jack and Janet together and their 18 year age difference didn't factor into anything, it was mentioned a couple of times but it wasn't harped on, but what I loved most was the fact that Jack didn't treat Janet any different because she now needed a cane to assist her in walking he let her do things on her own and only lent a helping hand when she asked for it. I also enjoyed that Nate, Megan, and Emily were in this book and we were able to catch up with the couple and see what changes were happening with them.

This wasn't entirely a love story in fact a major part of the story was about someone shooting Jack's prized stallion right there on the ranch. YIKES! Janet was able to help out in an unofficial capacity with the investigation and she never stepped on any toes she was mindful that this was not her ranch or even her investigation but it was great seeing her back doing a bit of what she loved before she was shot nearly a year earlier.

I Am a SEAL Team Six Warrior: Memoirs of an American Soldier - Howard E. Wasdin,Stephen Templin

I don't typically post until I've finished a book, but this time it seems appropriate.

 

My 8th grade son brought home The Making of a Navy Seal, the YA adaptation of Brandon Webb's autobiography/memoir The Red Circle, from the school book fair last November. He's a reader that finds a topic he likes and then sticks with it for a while, reading related books over and over and over.  It's now 3 months later and he's still engrossed by accounts of Navy Seal training and operations.  During this time he's moved from The Making of a Navy Seal to The Red Circle and then on a run of other Navy Seal Training memoirs including

 

  • Among Heros
  • Seal Team Six,
  • I am A SEAL Team Six Warrior, (the YA adaptation of Seal Team Six), 
  • Inside Seal Team Six, and 
  • Battle Ready

 

I was in the mood for non-fiction, and of the current batch on out shelves Battle Ready seemed the most interesting.  So I'm going to give it a go.
