Review for Knox (Out of the Cage #3) by Lane Hart
Knox (Out of the Cage #3) - Lane Hart

What an adorable, sensitive, dork Knox turned out to be! I’ve read all three books in the series and I can’t really say he’s my favorite but he is definitely the sweetheart of the three!

In this third and final installment we get to know more about Knox and how he ended up at the house with the other kids. His backstory was not as tragic as the other’s however I think it made him more endearing and sweet. The romantic story actually takes place parallel to the two previous books so I definitely recommend reading them before jumping to this one.


I’m not really sure how to feel about Jade. There were some issues with her character that just didn’t click with me. Some of the things she did and said felt out of sync with the woman she was supposed to be. Nevertheless, the attachment she and Knox formed felt genuine and honest, so even if it all started as insta-lust, by the end of the book I could definitely tell there would be much love and respect between them.


***** This book contains what I consider a very graphic description of non-consensual sex, which in my book means rape, so heads up. *****


I received this book at no cost to me and I volunteered to read it; this is my honest opinion and given without any influence by the author or publisher.

Review: The Bad Girl and the Baby (Cutting Loose #3) by Nina Croft
The Bad Girl and the Baby (Cutting Loose) - Nina Croft

Darcy has a painful past. She thinks she failed her sister and now she’s trying to make it up by making sure her sister’s daughter, Lulu is living a happy and safe life. The only problem is that Lulu’s guardian, uptight, ultra-organized, ex-SAS, Capt. Matt Peterson won’t allow her to even visit her. Now Darcy needs to find a way to convince him that being a tattooed ex-con is not as bad as it seems. 

I loved Darcy’s kick-a$$ character! I think the author did an excellent job of portraying the true nature of her character. She was tough and protective yet showed glimpses of vulnerability at exactly the right moments. Even when she was unsure or feeling susceptible, she still went ahead and made the tough decisions. 
Matt on the other hand cracked me up half of the time. He was supposed to be this stiff, uptight, almost super-soldier but when it came to Lulu and Darcy… well, let’s just say he became someone else entirely different but not in a bad way. He and Darcy formed some kind of bond, that as much as they tried to deny it existed, or not give it a name, worked excellent for me because it was that openness and honest attitude from both of them that made their nameless relationship work; as long as their meddlesome friends were not trying to dictate their lives. 
Argh! That really annoyed me, though! Darcy and Matt’s friends were always telling them how bad they were for each other and how much damage each would cause to the other. I mean, seriously, consenting adults? At least in the end, friends served their purpose and proved that without them life would not only be boring but also so much harder and lonely. 

It’s not very often I connect this well with characters but this book was something else. Even Lulu was a delight to read. Those that have dealt with little kids will immediately understand and chuckle at what the characters had to go through with little Lulu. 
It’s not very often I give 5 stars to books either but I think this one warrants it. There simply was nothing I didn’t like; if anything I could re-read this book just for the sheer pleasure of reading it again.

Review: Tempting Danger (Retribution #2) by Katie Reus
Tempting Danger - Katie Reus

We met Alina and Andre in the first book (Retribution) when she and her sister were trying to avenge their parent’s murder. This book was not as fast-paced as the first book nor did it have any paranormal elements but it was still an entertaining read. It was cute to see the things a hormonal pregnant woman has to go trough and how the people around her deal with the situations.

The thing I didn’t like much was that I was expecting more of a struggle in the romantic department. It went from “enemies” to “I want you back in my life” in the span of a millisecond (not quite literally but it sure felt that way) which I feel didn’t allow me connect to the characters that much.

Review: Cowboy Sanctuary (The Dixon Ranch #1) by Michelle Hughes
Cowboy Sanctuary - Michelle Hughes,Jimmy Thomas,Shoutlines Design

I have to admit that when I started reading the first few pages I thought “where is this going?” but when that ended and I realized what was going on, I laughed so hard picturing the guy’s face I just knew I was in for a treat. The story is narrated by both Dana and Brock’s first person POV and although not my favorite it actually worked pretty well here.

Dana and Brock met in the least possible imaginable way. As the twin sister of Brock’s ex-lover, Dana never imagined she’d be the one to tell Brock the child she’s holding in her arms is his but when her sister’s ex-husband is back in their lives she’s got no where to go but the only place she thought safe place for her nephew.
This was my first read from this author. It was a quick-paced, funny, and enjoyable read. Dana was so innocent and naïve that she tended to sound silly at times but not enough to hate her character. Besides, I think it was part of her being so young and still trying to find her place in the world. If anything, it was Brock that I have some problems with. Every five minutes he would say something as silly as “my woman,” “my girl,” “a man needs to protect his woman.” Mine, mine, mine. One thing is to be protective and caring but this man’s attitude was borderline proprietorial. He was also a bit retrograde when it came to Dana’s mind. Some of their arguments were because he didn’t get that she had a mind of her own and he thought she didn’t need to worry because he was there to save the day.
Not my kind of guy, honestly. Then again when he was not behaving like a complete Neanderthal (like when he got jealous because she was dancing with his brothers) he could be really sweet and loving (like when they made love and he prepared her a bath to relieve sore muscles) and could pass for a gentleman. My issue is that I don’t think men need to act like jerks to be manly men. They can be protective and powerful yet sweet and loving. In the end I think he finally got the idea or at I think he at least kind of made a promise that he’d try to be better so we’ll have to see in future books about any changes.

The rest of the family Dixon, specially mamma Mary, added the perfect balance of drama and fun to the story. Jer-Ber, Brock’s baby was well-depicted and the fact that he cried at the most crucial moments actually made me chuckle, as in “yep, that’s a baby for you.”

All in all, it was a nice story with interesting characters and I will definitely continue reading the series and more from this author.
