One Hot Summer Night - Deborah Cooke

This wasn't my favorite in the series. I had a hard time connecting with the plot concept. What Gabe did 7 or 9 years ago was noble, but in the end, he was married and had a fling with Lexi. It was a bold concept for a Deborah to tackle and I certainly commend her for breaking barriers; however, with my own past experiences, I couldn’t get behind this love story.  It does end well for all parties and Gabe and his wife Daphne definitely didn’t have a real marriage, but marriage is marriage. I’m also shocked at how calm Gabe was when he discovers Lexi’s big secret that concerns how they met the first time 14 years earlier. How can he be so calm about it? I’m trying not to give any details away, there are some doozies in this one. I liked Gabe and Lexi, it is just how he wasn’t honest up front with her when they get together until after the fact that I found to be messed up. He should have been honest and things should have been resolved before they took things to the next step.

Spring Fever - Deborah Cooke

This one was such a sweet, small town kind of romance about a woman finding the courage to open up again after an abusive past to the right man, and the right man knowing the perfect way to prove to her he isn’t like her past.  I enjoyed it a lot, I liked how it ended, there were no loose ends and the story was sweet and paced well.  It is on the shorter side but not too short so the story does not come across rushed.  They still come across as taking their time and getting to know each other even while steaming up the pages. I really liked Reyna, her retro style, her confidence while still showing a vulnerable side, and the fact that she is tattooed (got to love a fellow tattooed woman playing the romantic lead). I loved her. Kade was such a perfect match for her, kind strong, confident yet unafraid of her take charge type of style. He saw from the very start that her rules and style were all part of her armor and it didn’t deter him from wanting her.  He was perfect.  I think I liked book one a bit more but I think it might just have been that when that one ended I wasn’t ready and wanted more.  This one ended in a way that was perfect and left me satisfied

The Haunting of Fox Mill
The Haunting of Fox Mill - Phyl Cooke

I bought this at a book sale because I thought a good old vintage ghost story would be fun.

 

It's a pretty terrible book.  The writing is clumsy, the female MC stupid, childish and immature, and the plotting resembled a car crash.  The romance was unbelievable even by mid-century standards.  The ghost story part was not even a little bit scary; frankly the possibility that rabies might be to blame for the strange occurrences was the scarier part.

 

Oh well, no chance I'll have to sleep with the light on, at least.

 

I read this for the Ghost Stories square in Halloween Bingo.

Going to the Chapel - Deborah Cooke

This was a fun and fast glimpse of what happened after the last page of all of the prior books in the series. I loved watching the weddings of Cassie and Damon, and the birth of Amy and Ty's son.  It was very enjoyable and sweet.  Loved it.

Nimue's Gift - Deborah Cooke

Two chapters overflowing with so much change, foreshadowing of events to come, hints of the Pyr coming to join the Incendium dragons, and just so much more! This is one of the few novella’s in this series that definitely had to happen as a stand alone story.  Being it is so short, the review will also be short because I am not going to give anything away; but know this, the Incendium series is about to get even more intense!
