Sally's Cookie Addiction
Sally's Cookie Addiction: Irresistible Cookies, Cookie Bars, Shortbread, and More from the Creator of Sally's Baking Addiction - Sally McKenney
I have been a follower of Sally’s Baking Addition for years and when I saw that she had a cookie cookbook, I had to see it. This book is a keeper! I have tried many of Sally’s recipes before and have loved them. This cookbook is a must, if you like cookies. If you love cookies, what are you waiting for, grab this cookbook and start baking!
 
Each cookie or bar in this book has an illustration with it. The recipe is on one side of the page and directly across from it, is a bright picture. There is also a short paragraph at the top of the recipe giving a short narrative of the recipe. Prep time, total time it should take to create the recipe, and the amount of desserts the recipe should make is also included in each recipe. With easy to find recipe ingredients and simple step-by-step directions, this dessert book is a gem.
 
I was amazed at all the great recipes inside. I like the classics: monster cookies, soft peanut butter cookies, oatmeal raisin, and chocolate chip. But the different varieties of chocolate chips cookies had me rethinking perhaps I should be revamping this classic once in a while. The Midnight Brownie cookie, the Kitchen Sink, Sugar Cookie Sparkles, Peanut Butter-Stuffed Cookie Cups, and of course, the cookie dough had me stopping in my tracks as I looked over this cookbook. I saw other recipes I would love to try, some recipes for friends and family, I knew they would love them. Just seeing the illustrations of the all the recipes, made me hungry.
 
In my world, this book it top-notch. I loved all the variety inside one cookbook. There were the great recipes of the classics plus a bunch that look tantalizing. The illustrations were fantastic and the book itself, put me in a happy place. I could use the index by looking up the name of the cookie or by an ingredient. It’s pretty detailed. The table of contents at the beginning of the book, breaks the cookies/bars by groups.
 
I highly recommend this cookbook. You should pick this up for yourself or for someone who loves cookies/bars – perhaps they will bake you something.

A lot of boring.
Your Irresistible Love - Layla Hagen

A stodgy romance, same ol, same ol. Quick read, there is steam and not a lot of story. Easy to leave this one by the wayside. If your goal is steam but not much story, this is a good choice.

Success
Simply Irresistible (Flatiron Five) - Deborah Cooke

Tyler finds himself trapped in a mess of his own making.  He solves it by asking out the smart and beautiful Amy.  He has wanted to talk to her for a while.

 

Amy always feels like she is not enough.  She has trouble from her past that she hopes to never see again.  Will getting involved with Tyler's plan ruin everything?

 

Loved this story.  So excited to read the rest of the series.  These characters were so meant to be.  I loved the humor, the heat, and the sexy was out of this world hot!  I thought is was great and cannot wait for the next book in the Flatiron Five series.  I give this a 5/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Tall, Dark, and Irresistible (Tall, Dark and Sexy #2) by Erika Wilde
Tall, Dark and Irresistible - Erika Wilde

 

In the heat of the moment a little white lie becomes a great big catastrophe. Erika Wilde takes an arrangement of convenience and turns it into a sensual delight. Peyton and Leo are romantic comedy gold. She lands herself in a situation that requires a helping hand from her secret crush. He's crazy enough to except the terms and accidentally in love ensues. Tall, Dark and Irresistible is boldly brash, cluelessly funny, irresistible entertainment.

Hockey Romance
Irresistible You (The Chicago Rebels Series Book 1) - Kate Meader

I don't read much romance, but I go into these periods where I want romance.  I admire romance writers because they seem to work the hardest.  I picked up the prequel to this series when a friend said it was free.  I read it and enjoyed it, so brought the first book.  Nine months or so later is when I get around to reading it.

 

The premise of the books is that three half sisters (including one long lost, just discovered sister) have inherited a hockey team from their dearly departed dad, who was really a smuck to at least two of them.  This, the first volume, is about the eldest sister, Harper, who while not a  hockey player dreams and desires to be a hockey manager of some type.  Part of the conditions on the will is that the three sisters who inherit the team must get the team to the playoffs in the first year or it will be sold.

 

Honesty, I picked this up because I liked Harper in the prequel.  She is somewhat more insecure here, which is okay because we tend to be more insecure in our hands than we let show.  Her true love is Remy, an older hockey player who really wants to win the Cup before he retires and plows seeds into a woman because he really wants that family.  Sadly, he finds himself traded to the last place Chicago Rebels, and that is not in his plans.  He doesn't care that the owner and acting GM is a woman, he just wants to be on a winning team.

 

The sex scenes are hot, even if the initial romance feels more like lust than anything else.  There is not real example of instant chemistry (though we are told that both feel it), but when they actually talk, the relationship works better.

 

For me the problem is the ending.  I know this is the first in a series, so the whole bit about the championship would be unresolved.  It's just the ending feels very, very rushed.  I get that's romance, but some of the decisions seem a bit slightly out of character - i.e. Harper giving up the amount of control that she does, there is no discussion of children, while his mother likes Harper she doesn't respond to Harper as a would be wife to her son and this is totally dropped.

 

It's not a bad book, but the ending was off.
