Weekend Surprise - City Boy, Southern Girl

 

 

 

 

 

 

City Boy, Southern Girl blurb 

 

Growing up in a small town, Sarah Wright knew city boy Jake Ryland was going to be trouble the minute she saw him.

 

In order to help a friend, Jake moved from his home in the city - with its vast amounts of entertainment options and women - to a small town in the middle of nowhere. Accustomed to the fast paced life he loved, life now seemed to move as slow as the molasses the South was known for. Until he met Sarah.

 

Sarah knew Jake’s stay in town was temporary, and did her best not to be drawn in by his charm and good looks. And after a disastrous first date, she thought she was safe. Little did she know...

 

As their relationship builds, so does their chemistry...and their feelings for one another. Do they try to find a way to make it work, even though they come from different worlds? Or do they walk away now and wonder what might have been?

AUTHOR BIO:

 

There's just something about a small town that makes relationships interesting, whether they are romances, long-running feuds, or life-long friendships. These are the relationships H.C. Bentley enjoys discovering and exploring. Well that, and the fact she just loves a good happily ever after or second chance story.

When she's not writing, H.C. works as a cataloging librarian at her county library. In her spare time, you can find her playing pool, traveling with her family, or curled up watching movies (romantic comedies are a favorite!). She's also an avid reader, leaning towards various authors of romance and chick lit, but her favorite is Nora Roberts.

A southern girl at heart, H.C. calls Kentucky her home. After opting to join the military to pay for college, she spent three years stationed in Wiesbaden, Germany before returning to her hometown in rural western Kentucky, where she and her husband live with their two daughters.

H.C. loves chatting with readers. You can contact her through her website, or any of her social media.

River of Teeth by Sarah Gailey - My Thoughts
River of Teeth - Sarah Gailey

I first heard about River of Teeth through one of the reading blogs I follow and I bought the novella for the simple reason that the blurb got me.  Especially this part:

Contained within this volume is an 1890s America that might have been: a bayou overrun by feral hippos and mercenary hippo wranglers from around the globe. It is the story of Winslow Houndstooth and his crew. It is the story of their fortunes. It is the story of his revenge.


Feral hippos and hippo wranglers??  What?  Talk about an original idea!  I was sold.  I pre-ordered the book right away - a couple of months ago - and I hardly ever pre-order books.

 
It was not a wrong decision - I loved it!  The characters were original and interesting and bound together in interesting ways.  They kept me wanting to read page after page, fascinated and dying to see what they were going to get up to.  And the hippos... the HIPPOS!  I loved all of them. 
 
The world-building in this tale is intriguing even if it's a bit ... out of whack as per the author's note at the beginning of the book.  Who cares... IT WORKS!  And the story itself is a rollicking, fun, banter-filled adventure.  
 
And back to the characters.  They are a really diverse bunch.  Race, colour, creed, sexuality... hell, it's all diverse and not made a big deal of really which works just fine for me.  I like when the diversity is just a given in a story and not a plot point.  My only real problem was ... well, mechanical?  There is a character who is ... gender non-conforming?  I think that's the label.  Anyway, the character uses the 'they' pronoun.  Which is totally fine, but I've discovered that at the age of 60 and having 55 years of reading under my belt, when I read the words 'they' or 'them' or 'their' ... my brain looks for/understands multiple people and a couple if times I had to go back and see if the character was alone or had someone tagged along in the scene.  I suppose with more of these types of characters my brain will get used to it, but it was something that impacted me as I read. BTW, I adored the character in question!  :)  
 
My only real complaint is that it was too damned short!  I wanted a novel, not a novella.  Yes, it ended with a cliffhanger of sorts, but not one that made me want to send the ereader for a sail across the room.  Still, the characters were so good, the alternate reality so interesting that I wanted a lot more of it.  :)
 
Oh, and look at that lovely cover!  
 
The second book in the duology just went up for preorder today.  It's called Taste of Marrow.  And yes, I have pre-ordered it.

Somehow, Some Way: A Billionaire Builders Novella
Somehow, Some Way: A Billionaire Builders Novella - Jennifer Probst

I guess there's feminism running through my veins. It makes my heart glad to watch a woman go toe to toe with the big boys. Charlie does not back down from a challenge. She speaks her mind, follows her heart and has the confidence that most people wish they had. Underneath all the bravado lies a scared little girl, craving acceptance in a male dominated field. Brady is both nemesis and anchor. He pushes her, steadies her and shows her it's okay to be vulnerable. Brady and Charlie are a sassy mix of heart, heat and frenemy that makes for some sticky situations but dishes out some fun times as well.

Another great addition to a great series
Craving His Command - A Doms Of Genesis ... Craving His Command - A Doms Of Genesis Novella - Jenna Jacob

This is a great quick read that I could not put down. Symone and Sir Justice are great together and the back story was so interesting and intriguing that you just keep rooting for them but don't know how it is going to know how it will turn out. With all the other books in this series which is one of the many reasons why I love this series is Jenna Jacobs brings all of the characters from previous books back and you feel like hey are family. Jenna Jacob has another hit with this book.
