Maturity
Rend - Roan Parrish

This is book #2 in Riven series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader understanding and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading series in order.

 

Matt meets Rhys thinking he would be an amazing one night stand.  To his surprise, there is something more there.  Now he must learn to fight for what he has.

 

Rhys knows saying the wrong thing will scare Matt away.  He cannot help how he feels.  So he keeps Matt any way he can.

 

This story caught me by surprise.  As a breath of fresh air.  The men must learn to put each other above the rest, even with odds against them.  I loved the sincere feelings that came across.  The real search for the one who can love you most.  I give this book a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Reasons
Big Stick - Kelly Jamieson

This is book #7 in the Aces Hockey series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader enjoyment, and understanding of the series, I recommend reading in order.

 

Jodie and Nick know one another through mutual friends.  When their friends think they should move in together, it becomes a series of awkward conversations.  Single-mom Jodie cannot afford to get involved with someone too quickly.  Can she be near him and not lose her heart?

 

Nick is everything she wants and is hard to stay away from.  Little does he know while he pines for the elusive Jodie, she also pines for him.  When they learn to see eye to eye, maybe this could be love after all.

 

This was a slow burn.  The characters had good interaction and the book was at a good pace.  What I liked best was the real touch of the honest way a single parent would react.  This title has lots of heat, plenty of heart and an endorsement from me.  I give this a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Surprise
Bishop - Sawyer Bennett

Bishop meets the most amazing woman.  Then to his surprise, she chooses him for the night.  What happens when he finds her at his place of work the next morning?

 

Brooke is in utter shock to see Bishop at her new workplace.  When he finds out she is his new coach's daughter, they both seem blindsided.  Brooke has a plan.  Let it play out.

 

The start to this new Arizona Vengeance series, is incredible.  True to this author's history, she knows her romance and she knows her hockey.  I love this story and how the characters find one another.  The sexy times are smokin' hot as well.  I give this a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

"Hero" was a d-bag
In a Class by Itself (Loveswept, #66) - Sandra Brown

I've been posting my reviews online for about 10yrs now, I know I've liked books that could have some problematic characters, actions, and storylines (This Heart of Mine by Susan Elizabeth Phillips, comes to mind) but as I get older and in our current climate, I'm really having to challenge and make decisions on what I'll go along with for the sake of the story. 

 

Suddenly he bellowed and vaulted out of the tub. Reaching down, he closed his fist around her mane of hair and hauled her up with him. Furious, dripping water and rage in equal proportions, he shoved his angry face toward hers. His voice was surprisingly mild. She would have preferred shouting.

 

I wish I could say that this would have stopped me in my tracks at 25yrs old as it did at 35yrs old, but I'm not sure. All I know is that currently, it made me immediately put the book down. This is the "hero" acting towards the heroine.

 

They were high school sweethearts who ran away to get married but her parents forced them to get an annulment because they thought the hero was too poor and other-side of the tracks. They meet back up at their 10yr high school reunion where the hero not quite so teasingly demands a wedding night. They are being hot and heavy when the heroine tries to put the breaks on and she then tells him why she stayed after the reunion broke up at his house, the charity she helps wants to buy some land the hero owns. He gets angry because he thinks she was using her body to get a good deal on the land. He then basically holds her hostage claiming he'll sell her the land if she lives at this house as his concubine. 

 

It's a hurt revenge angle that was seen quite often in '80s romance, along with the endless descriptions of fashion (the heroine has an eel skin purse and matching heels!). After this scene, there really was no hope for me to ever connect to the hero, he physically assaulted the heroine in my eyes. I skim read the rest of the book (I rate books whether I read fully, skim, or dnf, it is the way I keep track of books so don't @ me) and wasn't all into the heroine still wanting the hero to love her. 

 

Everyone has their own opinions but please, let's all agree that this was assault/abuse and call it as so.

Catch
I Think I Love You - Lauren Layne

This is book #5, on the Oxford series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  To avoid spoilers, and enjoy this amazing series, I recommend reading this in order.

 

Brit and Hunter are best friends.  They work together, and he is her boss, technically.  They make a great team.  So he is the ideal man to ask why everyone friend zones her instead of wants to date her seriously.

 

Hunter has recently noticed Brit as a woman and more than a friend.  Her asking him to teach her seduction is apparently working too well.  Now he has to figure out how to help his best friend without hurting her and their friendship on the way.

 

This was a great end to an incredible series!  I love this author, and all her works.  Always worth reading.  This book was a great fast pace, with some serious humor and side order of heat.  I absolutely adored reading about this couple falling in love.  I give this a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
