100 Days - Mimsy Hale

DNF @ 45%

I tried, I really tried to finish this book it has been a week since I started this book and my feelings about it didn't change so I finally decided to DNF it.

To me this road trip was the most boring one I have ever read about, the Mcs Jake and Aiden were dull and silly and I couldn't connect with them at all and to Jake was extremely annoying.

I decided at least I deserve to know the ending after putting up with this book for so long, even though with any other book this will be the perfect HEA for me, in this book I didn't feel it at all.

Overall this wasn't a good book for me and I didn't enjoy reading it.

Blue Sage (Western Lovers: Ranch Rogues #2) - Anne Stuart

I ponder a lot, about these characters who stay in small towns where they're miserable. I really ponder why this town continues to exist. Seems like such a tragedy in a town that barely qualifies for a truck stop (with no gas station...where do people gas up?). the kindest thing would be for the whole town to die. And of course, I wonder why something like what happened would keep being rehashed.

 

So basically, the past is that the H's father, a Korean war vet, had...issues...from his time there. And the H's mother, freaked out by him, left with the H, then a 2 year old. 15 years later, he snapped during the 4th of July, and shot a bunch of people. It is implied that prior to this, a bunch of animals in the area turned up dead, at his hand. The h was the lone survivor among the victims - she was shot in the knee.

 

The H has spent the last 15 years having people look at him suspiciously due to who his father was. I kinda puzzled at that. His almost-step-father insists that he go back to his parents' home town and well, figure things out.

 

The h has become, whether she wanted to or not, the town martyr. She wants out. The town judge took her in by marrying her (he's dead now), and well, everyone takes care of her...until she sleeps with the H, then they turn on her like rabid dogs. (see "why do people remain in small towns when they're miserable?"). He stays away for a bit and they sort of forgive her, deciding she's been victimized again (well, yeah - by them).

 

In the meantime, someone is planning on recreating the tragedy. The H's reappearance is v. convenient as everyone suspects him. The person makes their move against the h, the H for whatever reason goes back and gets her untied, then they go and avert disaster.

 

As stated earlier, I don't get why the h had stayed there. I don't get why she let herself get railroaded into a marriage (no relatives apparently). I don't get a lot of things about this set up really.

Hard To Let Go
Hard to Let Go: A Haven's Cove Novel - Jaclyn Quinn

 

Impressive. Honestly, if I had been handed this book and known nothing about this author (which I honestly know very little) I would never have guessed that this was her first book.  This was so fantastic.

 

A childhood bully/bullied, enemies to lovers story, this one had all the buildup I look for.  The kissing was scorching hot and honestly the entire relationship developed amazingly well.

 

While I started out feeling this had similarities to another recent book I have read, this steered quickly into new territory and the story grew quite beautifully.  Brody’s childhood and his relationship with his mother was just heartbreaking. But the love and devotion that transpired tapped into the feels something hard.  Phew.  I was a mess.

 

For the first time in Owen’s memory, the long table his grandfather built over 40 years ago, was filled with family-blood and chosen.

 

Family indeed.  This had such a strong sense of family. Of love.  Of commitment. And of support. These moments were simply beautiful.

 

I have heard more is to come from this author and eagerly await more on Jonah.  He was a quiet force but so compassionate and strong.  And Gabe…wow!  Look out.  I am so in love with this character.  His style, his wit and his love for Brody was written perfectly.  In addition, the banter with Leslie was just so well done and genuine.  Every scene felt real. 

 

I adored the aunts, the mothers and even sweet and confused Nate.  Cannot wait to see more from this guy as well.

 

Overall, I adored every moment of this book and cannot find one thing to complain about. LOL

 

** Highly Recommended**

 

An ARC was received from the Author in exchange for an honest review.

Lone Star Lovers (Dallas Billionaires Club) by Jessica Lemmon
Lone Star Lovers (Dallas Billionaires Club) - Jessica Lemmon

 

If love makes things happen, denial must get the ball rolling. When it comes to matters of the heart Zach and Penelope are the worst of liars. If actions speak louder than words, why aren't they listening? Lone Star Lovers is an amusing reintroduction to a couple of old friends. Fire has begun to melt the ice, but the real complications have yet to begin. The true gift of an author is to take you out of the real world and entangled you in your imagination. Jessica Lemmon has that gift. Saucy and sweet.
