Cowboy Surprise (The Dalton Boys, #9) by Em Petrova
Cowboy Surprise - Em Petrova

 

 

Be still my heart. For me there is nothing sexier than a big strong man being brought to his knees by an adorable bundle of heart. Justus is at the wrong place at the right time to lose his heart. Tuesday is a force all her own and when you add that spirit to an attraction as electric as theirs, It's bound to set off sparks. Theirs is a work in progress, but a temptingly perfect fit.

Surprise Delivery (Hearts and Health #5) by D.J. Jamison 3.5 Star Review!
Surprise Delivery - D.J. Jamison

Dr. Casper Rollins knows how to have fun. The love of his life, Kage Myers, lived every moment to the fullest before he died. Now, Casper goes skydiving, mountain-climbing or on other adrenaline-soaked adventures when he wants to feel closer to his lost love.

Medical director Eric Holtz is married to his work -- so much so his husband left him. But when his niece shows up, pregnant and in need of an ally, Eric suddenly has family again. Unfortunately, her obstetrician, Casper Rollins, is sexy enough to turn Eric into a blushing adolescent.

What begins as a game to break Eric of his workaholic tendencies escalates into scorching sex and feelings that can't be ignored. Casper never planned to give his heart to anyone other than Kage, and Eric won't accept anything less.

If these two want a future, they'll have to embrace the lesson Kage taught Casper long ago: You only live once.

 

Review

 

This is a nice romance about Eric and Casper readjusting their lives to make room for love. I like both heroes a great deal and how they treated each other, 

The sub plot with Eric's niece is nice balance and Jamison does a good job creating a resolution that is true to the characters. 

A lovely romance.

Short Review: Usually, and by that i mean, i legit just wrote a review 30mins ago claiming Kinsella as my fav author, but fav authors can still let you down. I actually put this book down at some point, i never do that to Kinsella. The pace in the middle was way too slow for my liking, it's lulled and it lulled bad. The ending was a bit off for me, like yah you figure out what is happening, but then they have that weird tea afterwards, not needed in my opinion. Dan is bae thou, where do i find a Dan?!

Misc.

good book and characters
Her Surprise Engagement - Ashlee Mallory

Daisy is a single mom of three kids- Paul, Natalie, and Jenna. She also now has an ex husband who only acknowledges his kids when it is convenient for him in the last two years. Daisy had lost everything because of his lying cheating ex who had left her for a much younger woman. Daisy also won’t accept help from her friends and family. Daisy tries to prevent her kids from being disappointed but her ex husband is such an inconsiderate man even when it comes to his kids and only cares about himself. The he cancels a trip he was suppose to take  the kids to Disneyland at the last minute and instead goes on vacation with his girlfriend. Daisy doesn’t have the money to take the kids to Disneyland but her sister- in- law does have a family vacation place on Lake Tahoe and offers its used to Daisy and the kids and also Aunt Glenda who Daisy takes with them. When Daisy gets to the house she finds a man already there the man is the soon to be governor Jack Harrison and his thirteen year old daughter Lily and the puppy Oliver/Ollie. Jack’s wife had died and left him with their daughter. Jack doesn’t date.  Jack wants to spend time with his daughter and take her on vacation in a quiet secluded place where they can have peace. before their lives change with him becoming governor and all that goes with it. Somehow the paparazzi find out where Jack is and shows up at the house. Jack nor Daisy need a scandal to be started by the media. There is a hot chemistry between Jack and Daisy and makes Jack want things he hasn't wanted in a long time. Jack comes up with the idea for Daisy to pretend to be his fiance. When Daisy agrees jack will in turn will cosign a loan for five percent of the profits. As Daisy is a creative baker and her dream is to open a bakery but with little money,  no assets or good credit rating she has little chance of getting the loan. She also desires never to depend on anyone but herself again.

This was a good book and I enjoyed it. I also liked the pace and plot. I do advise you to read the other books in this series for a smoother read. I thought Daisy was a little too stubborn at times like accepting at least some help from her family and friends. This was a fun easy romantic funny read. I did feel Jack was a little too quick to say he was  all in as far as a relationship with Daisy goes. It takes a little longer to be in a full relationship. The kids and Ollie definitely added to this story. At times I did get frustrated with Daisy and/or Jack. I did chuckle at times while reading this. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I recommend.

Beatles Jukebox

Got home earlier tonight after a long day and three hours' worth of sleep the night before, following on the heels of three equally long days (and similarly short nights); finally caught up with three days' worth of BookLikes posts and am now dog-tired (again).

 

So I thought before logging off I'd just drop something here for the resident Beatles fans that I picked up the other day ... (the Brits may have seen it, but if not, I hope the above link is going to work even if you're not on LinkedIn -- I originally intended to post the video clip itself, but that doesn't seem to be working, either).  Anyway, enjoy!
