Not My First Rodeo 2 Boxed Set
Not My First Rodeo 2 Boxed Set - Donna Alward,Jenna Bayley-Burke,Sarah M. Anderson Never has a compilation come along that varies in ideas but is so obviously meant to end up together. Donna Alward, Jenna Bayley Burke and Sarah M. Anderson embrace the power of what it means to be a woman with these tempting stories of danger, risky behavior and heartwarming humor.


Cassidy gets more than she bargained for in Seducing the Sheriff. From online dating to in need of protection, never would she have suspected that she'd find a love match along the way. Donna Alward brings the funny but combines a hint of danger with her always captivating and heartwarming formula.

With Roping the Rancher, Sarah Anderson seduces her readers with her tale of an older woman and a younger man. A little taboo, but a whole lot of sexy. Carly releases her inner vixen and finds out what happiness means.

Captivating the Cowboy by Jenna Bayley Burke - Jules has big dreams that do not include letting rancher, Slade tie her down. Will the heart win out over the ambition? A simple story of how powerful an emotional love can be.

Cookbook Boxed Set: THREE GREAT COOKBOOKS! - Dan Alatorre

Cookbook Boxed Set: THREE GREAT COOKBOOKS!  by Dan Alatorre
Had read one of the authors other works and he liked my review and redid the books to add in the suggestions I posted about.
Other works by the author are featured at the beginning of the book.

First book: 35 great recipes you wish your mother made. Lots of categories to choose from.
Each recipe starts out with a title, beautiful color photo, some include servings, and a summary and then the ingredient list. Instructions on how to make and a tip on how to serve is also included.
There's just a handful that do not have a photo. Like tips along the way that make some recipes just special.
Cole Slaw will be one we will make during summer months from fresh garden ingredients, looks similar to our recipe but this one has a bit more zing.
Love all seafood recipes as we live on the coast in the Northeast and can easily obtain them. No nutritional information but you should be able to substitute for your dietary needs.
Pizza dough sounds like a winner also as it's all within our meal plan. Chocolate cake recipe is a winner also but I'd use liquid eggs without frosting and pour into muffin pans as that is the size of a piece we'd be able to eat.
.
35 more amazing recipes your mother would be proud of!
Bonus recipes included with the different categories.
Each recipe comes with a title, summary, beautiful color photo and list of ingredients. Some also have servings.
There is NO nutritional information but you might be able to substitute for a healthier option.
Love the Ohio connection as I put together a recipe book for my husband's family who lived there.
Love the variations with the shrimp scampi, similar to one I used to make-it's so easy to put together.
Love tips about different kinds of cookies: crispy, chevy, puffy.
.
All American Favorites
Love stories of holidays and what food was available. Similar to how we grew up with relatives as neighbors.
Beautiful color photos, bonus recipes along the way. Even though it might be a basic recipe the author adds his creativity to make it for a special treat at a holiday gathering.
All little notes and tips and how to make it different. No servings or nutritional information but you should be able to substitute for your dietary needs.
Think I'd rather see 'about the author' at the very beginning because then I know who Michelle is, wondering if it's a sister or mother or wife.
Other works by the author are highlighted at the end.
.
What I like about the recipes are the stories that go along with them about how they came about or why they love to experiment with new ingredients to make it better.
For the most part there are beautiful color photos only a small amount do not have one. My reviewers like to see a picture of the dish they are going to try to make. There is no nutritional information nor servings size so you will have to experiment but should know how much one pound of lean meat will provide a meal for. Very few repeat recipes.
Some of the ingredients you might be able to substitute for a healthier option  (low fat, low sodium) but it is not going to taste the same as what the recipe calls for.  Grew up making a lot of these recipes and don't have my mothers recipes any longer so these are a godsend although I probably won't make them much as they contain too much sugar or other foods we are not allowed to have any longer.
Great comfort foods for the day once a month you can cheat from your diet. . Like tips along the way that make some recipes just special.   Love the variety of categories-makes it so anybody can find a recipe to try no matter what lifestyle/diet they follow.
.
A KEEPER!
Received this review copy from the author and this is my honest review.

Banished Saga, Boxed Set 1: Books 1-3.5
Banished Saga, Boxed Set 1: Books 1-3.5 - Ramona Flightner
I've been following this series since 2014, when Ramona debuted with Banished Love... it's been quite a ride since then. Even though it frustrated me that the first book had no HEA, I decided to reserve my judgment and continue on to see where the author takes us. Needless to say, I haven't regretted that decision even once. After reading the first book, I felt that Ramona has a knack for storytelling and every single installment of this Saga will show you just that. They're long, well researched and always had me wanting to find out what's next!

Banished Saga began with our favorite couple Clarissa and Gabriel, then went on to portray many more relationships over last few years since it's release-- their struggle to find love and keep their loved ones together and safe from any harm coming to them. They battle loss, personal demons along the way much like any other family. There's also a shift in later installments where you get to see the second generation of McLeod/Sullivans growing up, taking the center stage. In that sense, this Saga reminded me of Downton Abby. Not exactly similar but there are similarities that you can't overlook. What in Banished Saga reminds me of Downton Abbey is that this too shows the growth and continuation of one family into future generation. You start from one family then you get to learn more and more of this family, their relatives, friends and well-wishers, who also become a part of this journey just as much as you are. You see new faces, romance, marriage, children etc. And it’s an ongoing process.

Banished Saga also emphasizes on the turn of the century Suffragette movement in the US, where you find the author weaving the tale through real events as our protagonists try to find their own place in that volatile time.

Overall, 5 stars for a great ride! Recommended if you're looking for a slow growing Saga detailing the lives of various characters throughout the installments. There may not be HEA in every installment cause they don't always focus on only one couple like usual historical romances. But believe me, HEA is there for every couple somewhere along the way. Honestly, I don't know what I will do when this series comes to an end.

My detailed review of each installment can also be found in boolikes.

Great Story and Characters
Taming the Pack Boxed Set - Wendy Sparrow

Past My Defenses- Dane was a park ranger and driving home and found an abandoned car. The car was in the ditch with the door open . Vanessa was deathly allergic to cats as well as  a lot of other things. Vanessa was a werewolf and her Alpha was Jordan. A year ago Dane had proposed to Kayle and she had said no. Vanessa came to in human form and realized Dane was her mate. Dane thought he had captured a wolf but the next morning he found a naked woman in the cage begging him to lose the cat. Dane gave Vanessa two allergy pills from his first aid kit then he  had Vanessa go up to his room to sleep and hopefully recuperate. Vanessa went to Dane’s room and went to sleep like he told her to do. He slept next to her but on top of the covers. Dane was a human but also Vanessa’s mate and they had scent mated.

This Weakness for You- Jordan was the only Lycan among his his siblings that was a werewolf. He was the  youngest of his family but also the Alpha of his pack.  Jordan was also the most successful of the siblings in his family. Two years ago there had been deaths in protecting  a female of his pack and he knew he would have to  answer for his  part eventually. His siblings envy and Jordan’s pride had poisoned the relationship between him and his siblings. There had been a forum with member called Bo Peep looking for Jordan. Then Jordan told his brother Garrett to tell Bo Peep  he could arrange a meeting . the forum was invitation only.  Garrett would bait a trap for Jordan. Vanessa had a baby boy and Dane’s sister Christa who had M S  was there to see her new nephew.  Then Jordan was going in to see the boy and ended up scent matched to Christa and she didn’t have a clue what was going on. Travis used to be in Jordan’s pack and his second but then left to start his own pack and the single men left and followed Travis which was fine with Jordan. But then Travis called one of his pack members was murdered had asked for Jordan’s help.Jordan wanted to stay with Christi but didn’t want the problem to kill off Travis's pack then come after him and his pack. Especially as Jordan felt the killer may have been looking for him. All he wanted was to track the killer and return home to Christi.

Crazy Over You- Travis and his pack had helped remove the threat of poachers that had been hanging over the Lycan community for nearly twelve years. He had lost some pack members - including Ross who had started the poachers on his old pack. Then Ross’s sister had pinned Travis with a knife to his throat wanting to know where her brother was. Travis was exhausted from the fight with the poachers . Travis then realized he had scent mated with Leann who was Ross’s half sister. Leann swore Ross had been outside of Travis’s house today. Then Travis asked Leann if she knew she was a Lycan and she said she wasn’t a Lycan and her brother Ross wasn’t dead. . Leann had  shad learned you couldn’t trust anyone  but yourself and she would find Ross herself. She hadn’t spent much time with Ross since the visit two years ago. But Ross had taught her how to track and had beaten the tar out of her ex when he had shown up and tried to  hurt Leann. Leann felt like she didn’t deserve nice things like belonging and love that was for people who hadn’t done what she had. Leann felt it was time to really go over Ross's place and try to find any clues that might help her find him as Leann made a living finding things people had hidden. Leann tried to leave but somehow kept ending up with Travis. Yet she firmly believed she wasn’t a Lycan but Travis was one splendid male and she  did want him. But she couldn’t be the Alpha female to his pack. She needed to find her brother and leave.

I loved this whole series and how one story went right with the next one. All three stories were great. I can’t say I really have a favorite story. They all had some humor some more than others but that was okay it was as it should be. Some made me sad as though i knew the people especially Leann. I was happy how all three stories ended and loved the plots. They were all easy to read and kept my interest from beginning to end.  I loved all the different characters and all the ins and out and I highly recommend.
