Coin Tricks by Willow Scarlett 4 Star Review!
Coin Tricks - Willow Scarlett

 

Wire's too huge and intimidating to find love… but that doesn't stop him dreaming.

His size has defined his whole life, from his jobs as a bouncer and store security to his brief and unsatisfying relationships. But beneath his scary appearance, Wire's kind and loving. He cares for his family and his dog and imagines a future with a goat at his side.

Then he catches Sid stealing soap.

Sid's a cute librarian and aspiring magician, raising his sister alone and stealing when he can't make ends meet. Wire should report the theft to the cops but instead he takes food parcels to Sid, and an unlikely friendship forms. Sid is shy and scared at first, but with time he reveals his inner strength and the burning ambition that makes him the opposite of Wire's laid-back aimlessness.

Wire falls hard. But he's never been anything more than disposable to goats, and he can't bear to have his heart broken by his only friend. And years of trying to be different can't hide the fact that Wire was raised to be rough, to think with his fists and ask questions later. He keeps making a bad impression on Sid without meaning to, running the risk of losing Sid before they have the chance of finding something more together.

They have to struggle with work and their families and the weight of the past, trying to unite their very separate lives to create something new and beautiful. Wire knows his dreams of love are just that: Dreams. Sweet but impossible. But that doesn't stop him dreaming…

Review 

 

This books is a little treasure. 

It is set in New Zealand with a wonderful interracial romance between an impoverished ginger hero who at a very young age is caring for his sister and Maori hero whose size often makes others see him as less than.

Wire is kind with all kinds of depth to his character including a love of books, a twin, a dog, and a large family that his is dedicated to taking care of. 

Sid is bristly but charming and full of magic and learning to trust. 

The romance between them is lovely and about making your own family and healing.

There are rough bits here an there with Sid's character's choices a bit less explored because we are in Wire's head but all in all a great slow burn of a romance you should pick up.

Restless Rake by Scarlett Scott
Restless Rake (Heart's Temptation Book 5) - Scarlett Scott

Restless Rake by Scarlett Scott is book Five in the "Heart's Temptation" series.  This is the story of Clara Whitney and Julian the Earl of Ravenscroft.  I have read the previous book but this is easily a standalone book.
Clara is an American in London living with her father and Step Mother but she wishes to return home to Virginia.  Clara comes up with a scene to offer Julian one hundred thousand pounds to marry her but after they marry she leaves for Virginia.
Julian is tired of being 'bought' by women and whoring himself to keep himself and his family from being taking to the poor house. Julian has been selling himself since he was a young man and turns down Clara's offer quickly.  But when her father, Jesse Whitney comes busting into his home to take his daughter and put a end to whatever she is up to....Julian changes his mind.  For Jesse Whitney is a very wealthy man and Julian knows there is more to be gain by this marriage that what Clara had offered.  But what started out a a solid business or marriage of convenience quickly starts turning into something more.  There was an instant attraction between the two but the more that they got to know the other...the more their feelings grew...could either of them walkaway now?
I really enjoyed this book and seeing them come to their happy ending.

Nikan Rebuilt
Nikan Rebuilt - Scarlett Cole Sexy. Classy. Flashy. Trashy. Nikan Rebuilt is everything you would expect of a Scarlet Cole novel. It's dramatic, romantic and shocking. Nik and Jenny are the product of a storm, made up of lust and mistrust. She was the girl who needed to be rescued. He was the boy determined to be her savior. In the end, each had to learn to fight their own battles. There is truth in each line and scenario that makes up the inspirational tale that is Nikan and Jenny. Emotion paints a vivid watercolor of some of life's hardest moments and hope supplies the courage to overcome the tragedies.

Under Fire by Scarlett Cole
Under Fire: A Love Over Duty Novel - Scarlett Cole

Louisa North is weird thanks to her anthropophobia and pathological shyness. She knows, she’s weird, everybody else knows she’s weird, but she doesn’t really care, since she has a higher purpose—find the cure for Huntington’s disease or at least a better alleviator of symptoms, since the old one drove her father to suicide.
She’s getting close, too, with the only problem being her latest experiment had some unforeseen and rather dire consequences, causing paralysis in rats, resulting in their death.

Then she starts noticing strange things...Her notes being out of alignment, and the deadly sample in her lab is not the way she left it last. Acting on her hunch (she refuses to see it as paranoia!), she switches labels, placing the “deadly” label on the innocuous sample, and the next thing she knows, the fake-deadly sample goes missing.

With the owner of her lab not really looking eager to investigate or, God forbid, involve the police, Louisa has no one to turn to. Except the only man who doesn’t treat her as weird, because he has issues of his own, former Navy SEAL and co-owner of the newest security firm in town, Sixton “Six” Rapp.

And then things get really complicated...


The saying goes “don’t judge a book by its cover”, but it doesn’t really apply here, since it was the cover that drew me to this book first, then I read the blurb, and even though I’ve never heard of this author before, I had to have the book. And in this case, I am judging the book by its cover—and it didn’t disappoint.

Far from it, in fact.

It was a great blend of suspense and romance, although the latter was a bit more prominent in the story. Luckily, it was a great romance, featuring two wonderful characters—the quirky, shy, and geeky scientist and the sexy, outgoing ex-SEAL. A rather unorthodox pairing, but the contrast between the introvert, brainy Louisa and the extrovert, brawny Six worked beautifully in this instance. They were complete opposites, yet they got each other, and completed one another when the occasion called for it.
The first word that came to mind as I was reading of their first encounter was “cute”, and it didn’t change until the end. They were utterly cute together, a truly lovable couple. Their romance was believable, and their story organic.

The suspense was also very well-done with a good initial mystery, sometimes even throwing out doubt about the heroine’s instincts and possible paranoia, but once the true suspense and subsequent action kicked in, the mystery became of second importance, and everything focused on one thing and one thing only—keeping Louisa safe.

Unfortunately, the main plot lost its direction slightly somewhere in the middle, when both main characters succumbed to the trope-ish sexual frustration that was rather out of character for both of them, and the pacing suffered because of it, but once that hurdle was done with (thankfully, rather quickly) the story once again gained its previous momentum and it didn’t stop until the end.
An end that was satisfying in its action sequences and saving of lives, while on the other hand left a bit of frustration at the ease in which everything was resolved giving the fact who or what they were dealing with. It was a tad too easy and simple that they just let Louisa and her “secret formula” go.

I also didn’t really care about the cliffhanger in the epilogue, involving Mac and their dead friend’s sister (the only women Mac has ever loved). I didn’t really care about it not because I’m not interested, but because I am and the next book is still months off. Not fair!

For once, I’m not disappointed in a new-to-me author. The story and characters were great, the romance was wonderfully cute, and the suspense worked beautifully. Great job!
