Kiss That Frog by Cate Rowan
Kiss That Frog: A Modern Fairy Tale - Cate Rowan

***available in the Once Upon A Fairy Tale collection***

Sofia is frogsitting for her niece and developing quite a good rapport with Toad. Then, one day on a whim, she kisses Toad...And half an hour later, there's a strange man sitting in her apartment.


This story made me smile. It was super short, resulting in a feeling everything was resolved in quite a rush (they only knew each other—as humans—one afternoon), but it was super cute, and it didn't turn to the cultural-shock, time-travelling-hero-too-out-of-his-depth trope to keep things going.

Loved it.

Fabulous Read!!
The First Kiss of Spring: An Eternity Sp... The First Kiss of Spring: An Eternity Springs Novel - Emily March

Wow!  The First Kiss Of Spring is a fantastic read by Emily March.  Ms. March has given us a well-written book.  The characters in this book are outstanding and for me, the best part of the book.  Caitlin has decided to quit her job and move back to her hometown but first, she has to get through her friend's wedding weekend.  Josh meets Caitlin while he is on vacation and she is waiting for her friend, the bride, to arrive.  Caitlin and Josh's story is a see-saw of ups and downs.  There's plenty of drama, humor, sizzle and bit of suspense to hold the reader's attention.  I enjoyed every page of The First Kiss Of Spring, it's one of those stories you can't wait to get to the end to see what happens, but then want more when you do reach the end.  I look forward to reading more from Emily March in the future.  The First Kiss Of Spring is book 14 of the Eternity Springs Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger. 

 

 

I voluntarily read an Advance Reader Copy of this book that I received from NetGalley.

ROCK HARD BY NALINI SINGH
Rock Hard (Rock Kiss Book 2) (Volume 2) - Nalini Singh

Re-read in January 2018

Charlotte Baird is the best friend of Molly Webster, the heroine from Rock Addiction. This book takes place simultaneously and portrays Charlotte's relationship with her overbearing new boss who she refers to as T-Rex. I was intrigued by this side plot in the first Rock Kiss book so I was super happy that it met all of my expectations.

I loved the portrayal of Charlotte and her journey to self-confidence after a horrific incident with an ex-boyfriend. Readers get hints about what happened, but I was not prepared for the details which made me admire Charlotte even more. She is intelligent and shy though she also has a spine of steel when pushed too far. There are many moments where she could have retreated back into her enclosed world, but she kept going and showed how strong she really was.

The aforementioned T-Rex whose real name is Gabriel Bishop is a former professional rugby player who is now known for bring businesses back from the brink of disaster. His first few days at his new company results in staff overhauls and plenty of tears, but he showed a keen sense of business smarts and a good heart. I liked that, while most of this book focused on Charlotte's development, it also deals with Gabriel's own difficult childhood and how it effects his current outlook on life.

Rock Hard has many elements that I adore in Nalini Singh's paranormal books like fully developed characters, romance that sweeps the reader off their feet, and well-written worlds. Even though this book is a contemporary romance, I can see Singh's skills at worldbuilding with her depiction of the company that Charlotte and Gabriel work for, the relationships between the workers, and especially the crazy Bishop family. I am hoping Gabriel's brother, Danny, will get his own story someday.

All in all, a truly entertaining read that is both sweet and sexy. This author is showing how skilled she is at writing romance whether it is contemporary or paranormal. Rock Hard is my favorite of the series so far.


I received a free e-ARC of this book from TKA Distribution via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

Release Day - Lip Service
We're celebrating the release for the first book in a new series,
LIP SERVICE, by Virna DePaul! 
 
Title: Lip Service (Kiss Talent Agents #1)
Age Group: Adult
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: December 26, 2017
 
Book Description:

Closing the deal means winning her heart.
Dani

I just wanted to tell Hunter Kiss where he could shove the fancy phone he gave my little brother as an obvious bribe. I’m sorry/not sorry I hit him in the nose with it, but sports agents who come sniffing around with dollar signs in their eyes have to get through me.

But now I’m pinned between the wall and Hunter’s naked body, and I’m the one sniffing his unbelievably hot, freshly showered skin…and trying to remember I’m a strong woman who stands on her own two feet, not one of his peanut-butter-legged conquests.

Hunter

I make college football players into stars without having to bribe them, and I’m pissed Dani Cross thinks otherwise. But anger isn’t all she makes me feel. The pink-haired, pierced tattoo artist is so hot she makes me want to forget my own rule: one night per woman, no exceptions.

Only she doesn’t trust me as far as she can throw me. (And trust me, that woman has an arm.) She’s been hurt, and it’ll take more than smooth talking to make her forget the pain. But for the first time in my life, I’m ready to lay it all on the table—even if closing the deal means offering my heart.
