The Mating Season
The Mating Season (BookShots Flames) - Laurie Horowitz

Sophie is an ornithologist in Egypt to field a documentary on birds. Rigg is the asshole hired to be her cameraman. He was fired from his last job. Total opposites that attract.
I really liked having the woman be the geeky scientist. There was nothing special about Rigg (he's attractive, cocky). I didn't like him. He leaves the airport with the driver, leaving her with no transportation (Sophie's awesome, she had the foresight to get the local currency and hire her own cab) and is late to work the first day. No explanation, apology, or oops! 
There's Rigg's relationship with Nicola (history of on/off, they lived together for 2 years). He was over her faster than I could blink. I didn't believe the romance, it was very fast.
My last issue with this was the make-over. Of course. He didn't really fall for her until after that. I wold have liked him to fall for her just-as-she-was.
I rated this a little higher than I thought I would have because Rigg did change and that ending. I appreciated someone giving up something they've always thought they wanted for the benefit of the other. The bird facts were also interesting.

Ripped Bodice Bingo: fits for Nerd/Geek elements.

Sacking the Quarterback
Sacking the Quarterback (BookShots Flames) - Samantha Towle
Melissa, the assistant state attorney, is tasked with throwing the book at Grayson. Grayson is arrested for drug possession. Grayson just happens to be the star player for the NFL. Melissa, the assistant state attorney, and Grayson are just HAWT for each other. Of course they are!
I liked that Melissa, the assistant state attorney, was driven and smart. I didn't like how she was "struck dumb" by the hot guy. I didn't appreciate how willing she was to put her career on the line for a guy she just met. Neither character had much depth. Overall, not as bad as it was when I first started. Nice little plot with the brother, the cartel, and Melissa, the assistant state attorney's, boss. But then, as it usually does in Romance Land, everything works out just fine.
I was nice and rounded up to a 3 for Goodreads. I probably should have rounded down for all the times I was reminded that Melissa was the assistant state attorney. Keeping in theme with the book, I made sure to throw out plenty of reminders! Just in case.

Dazzling
Dazzling: The Diamond Trilogy, Book I (BookShots Flames) - Elizabeth Hayley,James Patterson

Siobhan is an artist who takes a hostess job at an upscale bar. Derick is a billionaire (aren't they all?) who patronizes the bar. Siobhan literally falls down (seriously- she HAS to be clumsy) in front of him. But wait! He catches her and is instantly interested.
This was predictable and boring. Luckily, this was short, so I didn't waste a lot of time on it or money (Thanks to the library!). It's also part of a trilogy- cliffhanger ahead! No HFN (much less a HEA). And guess what? I really don't care and won't be reading further.

Radiant
Radiant: The Diamond Trilogy, Book II (BookShots Flames) - Elizabeth Hayley,James Patterson


Title: Radiant
Author: Elizabeth Hayley
Publisher: BookShots
Series: Diamond Trilogy # 2
Reviewed By: Arlena Dean
Rating: Four
Review:

"Radiant" by Elizabeth Hayley

My View:

All I can say is that this read had me coming and going and coming and going again! Now, why was this? I am not sure who I felt sorry for Siobhan Dempsey or Derick Miller. In my wildest dreams I a thought that Derick really cared for Siobhan but by the end of this read I simply wasn't sure! It was definitely a fact that he had an horrible obsession with her that was beginning to scare the heck out of me. Derick seemed to not be able to keep doing things behind Siobhan's back that surely she would find out about it all in the end. Was he that clueless? Will he ever learn or just say enough of this? Now as for Siobhan will she ever stop all of this and make a decision and stick with it? Oh well I guess we will just have to see what will happen in the next 'Diamond Trilogy # 3.' Both of these characters really have something going on for them but will this ever happen with what keep breaking them apart. What was up with this man that he thought he could buy her...through buying all of her paintings? Will Derick ever learn Siobhan doesn't want him interfering with her life even though he is a billionaire and had all the money? I can understand the love Derick has for Siobhan but the way he keep repeating the same old thing [following and buying her] is getting old. So, I guess we will have to tune into the next read to see how this story will turn out.
