It Was OK
Cherish Hard - Nalini Singh

Sailor Bishop is determined that nothing will get in the way of him and having a successful landscaping business. While on a job one day, he has a very hot meeting with a mysterious woman. When he keeps running in to her, he’s determined to sway her over to his way of thinking.

This was an ok book. Unfortunately I had a problem with the main female character Isa. She was very wishy washy and it tended to get on my nerves. I did really like Sailor, though, which helped make up for it. The story itself wasn’t bad.

**I voluntarily read and reviewed this book

Psy Changeling #3
Caressed By Ice - Nalini Singh

“Judd figured he must have done something right along the way. How else could a rebel arrow have earned the right to call this amazing woman his own? Even if it was a mistake, too damn bad. He was never giving her up.”

 

 

Exclusive footage of me as I finished Caressed by Ice:

 

 

I'm not sure if at this point I can keep calling this series a "guilt pleasure". The guilt died 2 books ago. The guilt died in the arms of strong men and the lips of brave women. I can even feel my Kindle silently judging me, but at this point I'm not embarrassed anymore. 

 

Judd and Brenna are my new favorite couple on this series! I LOVE THEM!

 

*Ahem*

 

Sentence: I may or may not have a problem.

Cherish Hard
Cherish Hard - Nalini Singh

Hard Play, Book 1

I Picked Up This Book Because: After reading Rock Hard I was curious about Gabriel’s brothers and I’m so happy Ms Singh has decided to tell their stories.

The Characters:

Isalind Magdalena Rain-Stefansdottir: Isa’s upbringing was ridiculously/needlessly lonely being the only child of people who were much too involved in their own lives to be bothered by raising a child. She wasn’t abused and she was taken care of but she was neglected by her parents...horribly. As an adult Isa has taken on the role as caretaker for her younger siblings (one half sister, one step brother that was not let go after their parents separated) She never wants them to feel as she did growing up and dearly dreams of having a family of her own.

Sailor Bishop: Is not without his own demons. When he looks in the mirror he sees much of the man who left his family behind without a thought of their well being or a penny in the bank. This leaves Sailor with plans to make sure he is never that kind of man but when he meets Isa he realizes his plans are nothing without her love in his life.

Catie, Nanya, Harrlow, Jake, Gabriel

The Story:
Told in alternate points of view Isa and Sailor have a few run ins before they can become the couple they are destined to be. I’m glad Sailor had the tenacity to hold on throughout Isa’s insistence that they wouldn’t make it. I’m also glad he sees that is little caretaker also needs someone to take care of her.

The Random Thoughts:

ROCK HARD BY NALINI SINGH
Rock Hard (Rock Kiss Book 2) (Volume 2) - Nalini Singh

Re-read in January 2018

Charlotte Baird is the best friend of Molly Webster, the heroine from Rock Addiction. This book takes place simultaneously and portrays Charlotte's relationship with her overbearing new boss who she refers to as T-Rex. I was intrigued by this side plot in the first Rock Kiss book so I was super happy that it met all of my expectations.

I loved the portrayal of Charlotte and her journey to self-confidence after a horrific incident with an ex-boyfriend. Readers get hints about what happened, but I was not prepared for the details which made me admire Charlotte even more. She is intelligent and shy though she also has a spine of steel when pushed too far. There are many moments where she could have retreated back into her enclosed world, but she kept going and showed how strong she really was.

The aforementioned T-Rex whose real name is Gabriel Bishop is a former professional rugby player who is now known for bring businesses back from the brink of disaster. His first few days at his new company results in staff overhauls and plenty of tears, but he showed a keen sense of business smarts and a good heart. I liked that, while most of this book focused on Charlotte's development, it also deals with Gabriel's own difficult childhood and how it effects his current outlook on life.

Rock Hard has many elements that I adore in Nalini Singh's paranormal books like fully developed characters, romance that sweeps the reader off their feet, and well-written worlds. Even though this book is a contemporary romance, I can see Singh's skills at worldbuilding with her depiction of the company that Charlotte and Gabriel work for, the relationships between the workers, and especially the crazy Bishop family. I am hoping Gabriel's brother, Danny, will get his own story someday.

All in all, a truly entertaining read that is both sweet and sexy. This author is showing how skilled she is at writing romance whether it is contemporary or paranormal. Rock Hard is my favorite of the series so far.


I received a free e-ARC of this book from TKA Distribution via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
