Connection
Trust with a Chaser (Rainbow Cove Book 1) - Annabeth Albert

This new series starts out with a zap as we meet Nash & Mason, whose families have been enemies for decades.  Mason comes back to his hometown to open a tavern with friends.  Nash is the Sheriff now, and visits the tavern often to eat.

 

Nash is attracted against his will so quickly to Mason.  He does not want to want him.  He just cannot help it.  For Mason, the attraction is mutual.  It is also agreed upon that they should not do anything about it.  There is too much history between their families.  But the heart wants what it wants.

 

I thought this was a very well thought out plot.  The characters were well matched and had a series stack of problems against them.  Ideally the road to love is smooth, but in real life, family is just one of many factors that can get in the way.  I loved these characters and hope to see them again in upcoming books for the Rainbow Cove series.  I give this story a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Lip-covered teeth.   Dear author, do you know how mouths work?

Good start to a series
Mack (Black Mountain Pack Book 1) - Mira... Mack (Black Mountain Pack Book 1) - Miranda Lynn

This is fast-paced read with a writing style that pulls a reader in. I was a bit leery at first with the whole sister or mate thing, but as the story progresses and things come together, it makes more sense. The romance of shifter mates, some shifter politics, a bit of magic, and a war between packs keep the story flowing nicely, and the characters and relationships between pack members were interesting, creating a solid start for a series.
The only drawback for me was that I felt like some areas of the story could've been developed a little better, but hopefully, that will come as the series goes on. Overall, I did enjoy the read and will be checking out book 2 in the series.

What Angels Fear DNF @ 13%.
What Angel Fear (Book 1) - C.S. Harris

There isn't anything really wrong with this book; it's just failing to draw me in. I'm pretty sure the events of chapter seven aren't supposed elicit a sigh.

They go to to arrest our hero Sebastian for the actress's murder, one of the constables draws a knife and accidentally mortally wounds the other constable. Then the first constable blames it all on Sebastian and Sebastian flees in a stolen hansom.

(spoiler show)

Anyway, I'm just not feeling it and Sebastian feels a little too perfect and world-weary for me at the moment, so I figure I'll move on. I was trying to read this for booklikes-opoly square Mystery 25 "Read a book that's tagged historical mystery" since it takes place in 1811 (does it count as Regency era if they're just talking about the Regency and it hasn't happened yet?). I did read more than 10% of the book though, so I'm going to count the 44 pages that I read as $2 for my booklikes-opoly bank and move on.

 

New bank balance: $237
