Tacker - Sawyer Bennett

This is book #5, in the Arizona Vengeance series.  This story can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader understanding, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend you read this hot series in order intended.

 

Tacker has had tragedy turn him into someone he does not recognize.  His team has finally said enough.  He must seek help or he is out.  The first person he saw was a joke.  Can this 2nd person who is so good looking its unbelievable be of help?

 

Nora has ways of helping others heal.  She wants the souls who are hurting to feel better.  Her way is not the same as the old fashioned way.  It works on its own merit.  Tacker brings a whole new set of trials with him.  Can they get along long enough for her to help him heal?

 

Such a sweet story from the beginning.  You really feel how the main character needs someone to help.  I wanted to just give him a hug.  This story turned out to be very well done on a seriously touchy subject.  I loved the sexy side approach.  Great addition to the series!  I give this read a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Shakespeare's Counselor / Charlaine Harris
Shakespeare's Counselor - Charlaine Harris

Cleaning woman and karate expert Lily Bard is a woman with a complicated past. Trying her best to cope with her terrifying memories and horrible nightmares, she decides to join a weekly group therapy session in her hometown of Shakespeare, Arkansas. At first, Lily can hardly believe the number of her fellow Shakespeareans that share her life experiences.

As it turns out, the group members' feelings aren't the only things that need sorting out -- they assemble for a session and find a woman dead, killed in bone-chilling fashion and deliberately left on display to send a twisted message. Who would commit such horrendous crime, and who is the intended recipient of the message?

Before long, Lily becomes embroiled in this disturbing murder and its aftermath, one in which the brutal killer's motives are entirely unclear. The truth is, the situation has dredged up more than a few of her own terrible secrets, and she may not be able to rest until she can untangle the who and why of this terrible crime. But can she accomplish this before the killer strikes again, and before her nightmares send her over the edge?

 

I read this book to match the “Amateur Sleuth” square of my 2017 Halloween Bingo Card.

Another small town mystery and quite a contrast to “A Murder is Announced.” I enjoy Charlaine Harris’ mysteries, but she cannot hold a candle to Dame Agatha!

However, Harris does use the small town environment quite effectively. Where else but a small town would the cleaning lady, Lily Bard, be friends with the chief of police and his wife the doctor? And true to the nature of a small town, Lily knows most of the people in her counseling group and her counselor is a near neighbour.

Without all of these believable details, Lily couldn’t end up in the middle of a crime as often as she does! And, as with Agatha Christie’s small towns, people are people wherever you go and will surprise you with their reasons, logical or otherwise, for the things that they do.

This seems to be the last of the Lily Bard mysteries, so I will bid her farewell now. It seems a shame that she finally is getting her life together when her author has lost interest in her!

A Counselor Among Wolves
A Counselor Among Wolves - Liv Olteano The plot and writing itself despite some contradiction, potholes and over simplified conflict resolutions were not bad , though I couldn't enjoy the story as I should have due to my absolute distaste for Weiss and fondness and admiration for Amanda.
It also bugged me that the author only acknowledges physical abuse as what it is. So from one hand it was an easy and entertaining read and on the other a rather frustrating one.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Daniel & Amy have been best friends for the better part of two decades. Daniel is ready for the next level of this relationship. He has a plan. Now to play it out.

Amy has trust issues from her past that she cannot seem to get beyond. She already trusts Daniel though, right? Their attraction is heating up. To take a chance and find happiness.... or walk away for good?

Seriously HOT read! I loved the moments between the main characters. The genuine love of a bet friend is real and can become more. I am excited for the next book in this Seduction series.

About Jess Dee: 
 
 An avid romance reader since her early teens, Jess knew one day, when she grew up, she’d have to write her own love stories. And she did. Although the first one was pretty awful. But once she discovered it was okay to leave the bedroom door open in her romance novels, she decided to leave everything open. Buttons, zips, pants, number of lovers...Which is why her books are all steamy erotic romances. Jess’s first published story was originally contracted in 2005. Since then, she’s completed over 30 books, and is finally doing the work she loves most—writing romance.  

While Jess lived most of her life in South Africa, the last fourteen years have been spent in Australia. From the fast-paced Sydney lifestyle to the laid-back islands and beaches, there’s always another gorgeous Aussie setting for a contemporary romance.
