4 solid stars
Home Skillet (Culinary Kings #1) - Cate Ashwood,Sandra Damien
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book. James finds himself with a divorce, and the loss of his precious restaurant so he runs to the only place, the only person, he ever really called home. Ben has loved James forever, but having him crashing on his couch is playing havoc with his well built walls. But is what Ben feels as one sided as he thinks?? For the most part, I enjoyed this. I just found James a little much to deal with at times! And I am left with questions that didn't get answered. I'm NOT going to voice them here, because if you read reviews before buying you might be left with the same questions and it might spoil it for you. It did NOT spoil my reading experience, not at all, I'm just left wondering about a few things. I did like that James came to the realization of his feelings for Ben before Ben made a move. I did like that, once they decided to do this, James and Ben go ALL in, especially on James' part, since he's been in the closet all this time. It was a lovely read, a perfect way to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon. A little longer than the usual hang over cure, but I used it as such. A not overly complicated, well written tale, with just a few things missing. 4 solid stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

The Sheikh's Second Chance Lover (Small Town Sheikhs, #5) by Holly Rayner, Ana Sparks
The Sheikh's Second Chance Lover - Holly Rayner

 

You don't find love. It finds you. Blaine and Brooke are worlds apart when it comes to lifestyle, yet when it comes to matters of the heart, anything is possible with a little risk and a lot of faith. The Sheikh's Second Chance Lover turns a fantasy love into a real life romance. Brooke has been looking for love in all the wrong places. Blaine is every wish she thought she'd never have. Her neighbor could be her dream guy, if his many secrets don't stand in the way. Holly Rayner gets better with each novel that she pens. A hint of spice in a tasty treat.

ARC review: The Risk of Rogues (The Sinful Suitors, #5.5) by Sabrina Jeffries
The Risk of Rogues - Sabrina Jeffries

The Risk of Rogues - Sabrina Jeffries 

Release date: July 2nd, 2018

 

Last installment in the series, this second chance story was entertaining and sweet. Anne and Hart were young and very much in love when they decided to take the next step. Unfortunately life happened and they had to part ways before that came to fruition. Now that they’ve met again and Anne’s circumstances are different, it’s up to Hart to prove to her he’s the man she deserves and not just the woman he needs. 
To tell the truth, I wasn’t expecting such a short read as the last of the series but even so it was still enjoyable. I particularly liked the fact that both Anne and Hart were well-defined characters and I as a reader was able to connect with them and understand their struggles. Although more than struggles it was a tangle of misunderstandings and misinformation that was preventing them to reach their HEA. I don’t want to give anything away but I had an issue with Hart though. In his attempt to regain Anne’s love, he was willing to trap her into marriage by seducing her. That might be something we see a lot in historicals because it actually tended to happen quite often but it still sounds wrong in my book, historical or not. I know, I know, I’m too modern for my own good but that’s the way I prefer my stories, or not, as is the case here. Overall a good read that most people will be able to tackle in one evening. 
As a side note, that cover is so pretty and I think it’s the perfection depiction of our heroine. I just loved it! 

**I received this book at no cost to me and I volunteered to read it; this is my honest opinion and given without any influence by the author or publisher**
