Last Chance Rebel By Maisey Yates 99 cents
Last Chance Rebel - Maisey Yates

The man who ruined Rebecca Bear's life just strolled back into it with one heck of an offer. Years ago, Gage West's recklessness left Rebecca scarred inside and out. Now he wants to make amends by gifting her the building that houses her souvenir store. Rebecca won't take Gage's charity, but she's willing to make a deal with the sexy, reclusive cowboy. Yet keeping her enemy close is growing dangerously appealing… 

 

He's the wild West brother, the bad seed of Copper Ridge. That's why Gage needs the absolution Rebecca offers. He just didn't expect to need her. After years of regretting his past, he knows where his future lies—with this strong, irresistible woman who could make a black sheep come home to stay…

February 2017 Wrap Up
To Defy a Sheikh - Maisey Yates
The Sweetest Thing (Just Desserts) - Deborah Fletcher Mello
Craving Temptation - Deborah Fletcher Mello
Courting His Countess - C.J. Archer
Lighting the Flames: A Hanukkah Story - Sarah Wendell

My NOOK and Kindle got quite a work out this month. I am so glad to have participated in the Romance Bingo, as I was given an incentive to read a lot of books from the very bottom of my TBR.

 

Highlights, Lowlights, and Challenges

Best books of the month: The Just Desserts set from D.F. Mello were great. Highly recommend. Really loved To Defy a Sheikh by Maisey Yates as well.

 

Worst books of the month: Celtic Viking - Danish Celtic Viking having coffee before plundering a barely formed England in 876 AD...and puts the "mis" in "mishistorical romance". His Ring Is Not Enough by Maisey Yates was just a waste of time.

 

Disappointment of the month: Key of Knowledge - Nora why did you put me through that?

 

Romance Bingo: 10/25

Library Love Challenge: 1 - but will be making it up come March

Diseases and Disasters: 0 this month, as I concentrated on bingo

BL/GR Reading Challenge: 32/150

Pop Sugar Challenge: 4 this month

The Last Di Sione Claims His Prize
The Last Di Sione Claims His Prize - Maisey Yates A desperate plea and a mysterious painting lead to an epic hunt in Maisey Yates' The Last Di Sione Claims His Prize. Gabby and Alex had a tough time working through past torments and old hurts, but they found all encompassing passion that threatened to destroy them both. Will the quest for this precious artifact heal two hearts or doom two souls. Ms. Yates definitely knows ravishing. Her stories thrive on strong characters and their trials and tribulations, but this particular couple had a difficult time maintaining a momentum. The pace seemed a little confused.

Review: His Ring Is Not Enough by Maisey Yates
His Ring Is Not Enough - Maisey Yates

Romance Bingo - Virgin square

 

This was Nicki and Paris Hilton fan fiction circa early 2002 with a dash of 50 Shades of Gray thrown in. I see the couple (Nicki Leah and Ajax) divorcing the day after their 5th wedding anniversary (as per the plotline, the two have to be married for five years). Book two in this duology (Paris' turn! Rachel's turn) has a Kim Kardashian plotline/backstory (the early years when the sex tape first came out and she was still buddies with Paris). The virginity fetish displayed by both heroine and hero were of particular grossness. There wasn't anything redeemable about this book. Stay away.

 

First hate read of 2017.

Friday Reads!
A Lady Dares - Bronwyn Scott
His Ring Is Not Enough - Maisey Yates
Beauty and the Rake (The Rookery Rogues Book 3) - Erica Monroe

My holiday weekend is going to be BUSY...for the third weekend in a row. You guys, I am tired. Baby boy's 6th birthday and the kids' joint birthday party is this weekend. We are also on alert for son to lose his first tooth, which is exciting/freaking him out. I probably won't be on BL again until Tuesday.

 

I got 3 squares left for Romance Bingo black out card, so that is what I am going to focus on this weekend/ next week:

 

1. A Lady Dares by Bronwyn Scott (Pirates square)

      Still at 23% - pirates/sailors don't really do it for me.

 

2. His Ring is Not Enough by Maisey Yates (Virgin Square)

        Last contemporary romance of the bingo.  A Harlequin Presents line, so should be a quick read.

 

3. Beauty and the Rake (The Rookery Rogues #3) by Erica Monroe (Fairy Tale Re-telling)

        New to me author! My NOOK copy has a different cover than the BL database one.
