loved the humor, honesty, and steamy scenes
Game On - Kelly Jamieson

I loved this book! It was full of humor, steam, and honesty (except with themselves). Olivia learned to believe what others said about her because of Cam's directness. He was a sweet but mixed up man. By the end of the book, there were tears and smiles. I did not want to stop reading this story. I highly recommend this story. It was sort of sad to end this series, but I look forward to the next one.

I received an ARC through Netgalley, and this is my unsolicited review.

ARC REVIEW One Night Gamble by Katherine Garbera
One Night Gamble (Joker's Wild, #1)Jokers Wild #1, Jokers Wild is a new Casino in Las Vegas it's owned by three friends who have been by each other's side since they were kids and they have in their each way made it big. Casey the gambler, Nicholas the magician, and Darien the dare devil; all three of them invested their money together to create a new experience for those coming to Vegas. Talia has spent the last seven years of her life cleaning up her father's mess, an inept gambler, if it wasn't for Talia her grandmother would have lost the house to a loan shark because he used it as collateral. Talia has sworn off gamblers she's concentrating on her job and taking care of her Gran.

Talia has the opportunity to get a really good job managing the social media for the new Jokers Wild casino if she gets this no more working two jobs. Casey isn't looking for anything more than a good time but a chance encounter with a woman not once but three times in one day has him thinking differently. One wild and hot night was all it was supposed to be until the next day when they realize Casey is Talia's new boss.

Talia and Casey's sexual attraction is very strong the chemistry is there, but Talia focus so much on the fact that Casey is a gambler and that is basically the epitome of everything she hates that as the reader I had a hard time seeing anything else in the way of Casey's redeeming qualities besides the sexual attraction. Whereas Casey loved everything about Talia you could tell even when she was being obstinate he still loved her and he was trying very hard to get her to see a future for them. Told in the third person POV you get a omniscient view of both sides of their story.

Overall, it was a very smokin' hot story. I enjoyed the characters and their story and I look forward to Nick and Darien's books.

The Au Pair
The Au Pair - Emma Wood Rous

The Au Pair
by : Emma Rous
genre: mystery
pages: 379

Seraphine Mayes and her twin brother, Danny, were born in the middle of summer at their family's estate on the Norfolk coast. Within hours of their birth, their mother threw herself from the cliffs, the au pair fled, and the village thrilled with whispers of dark cloaks, changelings, and the aloof couple who drew a young nanny into their inner circle.

Now an adult, Seraphine mourns the recent death of her father. While going through his belongings, she uncovers a family photograph that raises dangerous questions. It was taken on the day the twins were born, and in the photo, their mother, surrounded by her husband and her young son, is smiling serenely and holding just one baby.

Who is the child, and what really happened that day?

My thoughts
rating: 5 stars
Would I read anything else by this author : yes
would I recommended it:yes
A family curse , a dark family history, dark secrets , and a thirst to know more about your family as well as a mystery then this one is for you . In the story you fellow the perspectives of Seraphine and someone who knew the family. As your reading it you begin to see just how dark the family secrets could be , and you also start to question whither Seraphine is how she says she is or is she someone else, you also find out more about the family and the family curse and what it has to do with twins, and how far someone will go to keep those secrets from ever coming out . Its a story that once you start to read it you don't want to stop , because you can't ,you have to keep reading until the very end. With that said thanks Netgallet for letting me read and review it in change for my honest opinion.

Empire of Sand
Empire of Sand - Tasha Suri

by Tasha Suri

 

This is a well told story with magic and mythology, as well as an exotic feel to it. Mehr is half Amrithi, as is her little sister, and they can see and smell Daivas; supernatural creatures invisible to ordinary humans. They are considered superstition and Mehr's step-mother is intolerant of Mehr's attempts to teach her younger sister how to deal with them.

 

An unexpected turn of events effectively forces Mehr into an unwanted marriage to a stranger and her independent nature is put up against the challenge of becoming a tool for political power, using her previously forbidden Amrithi abilities in ways that she recognises as wrong. Though she predictably falls in love with her husband, who is also Amrithi, both are enslaved by magical means and together they must find a way to resist the cruel machinations of the Maha, to whom they are in forced vows.

 

The one thing that bothers me about this story is that Mehr goes from one miserable situation to another. Even when something good happens, circumstances around it will create yet more misery. The poor girl never seems to get a real break!

 

It had a satisfying end though, and I felt I got a complete story which is important to me in the age of series books. The sample of the next book suggests that it will be the sister's story, so yay!

 

I liked the way that Indian mythology was worked into the plot. The characters were distinctive and I liked several of them, if not always completely. I'd say this is an author to watch, though perhaps her characters should be watching their backs!

New Release Review! Hot Target Cowboy (Dark Horse Cowboys #2) June Faver!

 

 

Today, I am visiting a ranch and a cowboy whose loyalty is to his family but when he falls in love...he falls hard and fast! Enjoy & don't forget to add Hot Target Cowboy to your shelves!

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

His loyalty is to his family.
But his heart belongs to her.

 

Eldest son Colt Garrett is the biggest, strongest and steadiest of the Garrett brothers. Colt accepts his responsibilities, knowing his future is tied to the land. Colt has stayed centered-but when he falls in love, he falls hard. He is mesmerized by Misty Dalton, the younger sister of one of his brother's friends.

 

Misty Dalton has held together a family plagued with problems since her mother passed away. But when the threats to her family turn deadly, Misty turns to Colt. If anybody wants to hurt Misty, they're going to have to go through the toughest of the Garrett boys first.

 

Dark Horse Cowboys Series:
Do or Die Cowboy (Book 1)

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

 

This cowboy romance is a gripping read that warms the heart. Colt and Misty are strong characters that easily enthrall readers with their sweet romance which grips emotions and has them empathizing with the heroine when she faced with a deadly threat and heartache. The chemistry between Colt and Misty sizzles with desire and passion and Colt takes on the protective knight when he comes to Misty’s aid which makes readers pulse pound in excitement.

 

The story has quite a bit of emotional turmoil as Colt must face his family and their opinions while helping Misty with her troubles and the steady faced plot is full of suspenseful events and some excitement as danger stalks Misty and her family.

Some of the dialogue between Colt and Misty is a little on the cheesy side and while Misty’s characters is strong, she’s a bit too naïve. Overall, the author has created an intriguing family atmosphere that catches readers’ attention and ensures that they want to get to know the whole family and this romance is a heart-warming read.
