Book Review - A Puff of Silk by Kathleen Shoop - A Novella—Book 1—Bridal Shop Series
A Puff of Silk (Bridal Shop Series Book 1) - Kathleen Shoop
A Puff of Silk by Kathleen Shoop - A Novella—Book 1—Bridal Shop Series
 
*** Book review ***
"A lovely introduction to a new series from Kathleen Shoop following famous dressmaker Amelia, her lovable gran and supporting characters, or will they become main characters? Who knows! A Puff of Silk was an enjoyable refreshing tale, with a little twist here and there, possible love interests and being able to follow designs as they grow from an idea to a finished form was really great.
 
Amelia finds herself lost in the social world of her celebrity client, blinded by the new lifestyle she fails to realize how quickly it can all fall apart right before her eyes. And it does, literally everything, including the 'social media' wedding gown of her new 'bestie' she designed.
 
She leaves the cold, harsh, city behind her to the warmth and safety of the small town she grew up in with her gran. But even her safety net has holes in as she starts to notice not everything is as rosy as she thought for her gran and the nostalgic dress shop she owns.
 
When a bride to be arrives at the shop desperate for wedding dress help, Amelia doesn't realize that the challenge could be the start of bright new beginnings.
 
I'm really looking forward to the next story, and wondering what treasures it will unfold for Amelia, her gran and the shop, along with their creative designs."

Release Blitz w/Review - Royce

 

Royce by USA TODAY bestselling author Kat Mizera is available now!

 

 
 

 

Just because opposites attract, doesn’t mean they belong together...

 

Professional hockey player Royce Lenahan is no stranger to chaos. He grew up surrounded by it, so as an adult he likes things nice and orderly: His apartment, his hockey schedule, even his dates. When his best friend and teammate asks him to take his visiting sister to a rock concert, he isn’t expecting the sultry, leather-clad vixen that has his jaw dropping.

 

Force of nature Kristina Papadakis feels like two separate people sometimes: The demure, proper Greek girl she was raised to be, and the badass rock musician she could be. She’s never had a problem keeping her worlds apart until her brother’s straight-laced but oh-so-hot teammate stumbles into both of them, creating a collision she wasn’t looking for.

 

As Royce and Tina explore an unexpected but undeniable passion, they soon discover that love isn’t always enough. Opposites might attract, but they’ll have to learn to compromise if they want to last. Royce has to be willing to give up control long enough to tame Tina’s gypsy soul, before she wanders away for good.

Las Vegas Sidewinders: RoyceLas Vegas Sidewinders: Royce by Kat Mizera
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book #10, in the Las Vegas Sidewinders series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. To avoid spoilers, and to enjoy and understand the series, I recommend reading this series in order.

Royce is a professional hockey player who likes things to be just so. What he never sees coming is the little sister of his best friend. She is all woman and he has no problem taking notice.

Kristina is a proper Greek girl, at least some of the time. Other times, she is a real rock guru and future star. She notices Royce after an incident that they both barely make it through. She also notes how much more of a gentleman, and what a caring individual he can be.

This was such an amazing book. I loved getting to know these characters. No one expects either of them to come out of their comfort zones - so it was awesome to read about! There are some familiar characters you will see in this story as well. Never disappointed with this great series.

About the Author:

 

Kat Mizera is a South Florida native. Born in Miami Beach with a healthy dose of wanderlust, she’s called Los Angeles, Long Island, upstate New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Atlanta home. She’s never been able to pick which locale is her favorite, but if pressed, she’d probably choose the west coast.

 

Kat’s a typical PTA mom with a wonderful and supportive husband (Kevin) and two amazing boys (Nick and Max). When she’s not writing, she’s either scrapbooking or indulging in her second love (after writing) – traveling. Greece is one of her favorite places in the world. She loves that Athens is a big city with a small-town feel. The food, beaches and culture keep her going back as often as possible. She hopes to retire there one day so she can spend her days writing books on the beach. Kat has been a working freelance writer for nearly 30 years. She sold her first article–a review of a rock concert–for $10 in 1985. Since then she’s been an entertainment journalist, waitress, bartender, legal assistant, food critic, magazine editor, substitute teacher, and sports writer. She also spent some time working at A & M Records in Los Angeles.

 

As you can guess from her series, the Las Vegas Sidewinders, Kat loves hockey. She is also a freelance hockey writer, covering her favorite team, the Florida Panthers, and any other teams that have an interesting story. The rest of the time, she writes novels: sexy, romantic fiction that she hopes makes you as happy as it makes her. There’s something enticing about hockey players and romance…

Steady
Playing for Keeps - Jill Shalvis

This book is #7, in the Heartbreaker Bay series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader understanding, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this great series in order.

 

Caleb has a lot going for him.  Successful, charming, keeps his promises, etc.  So when he co-owns a loving animal with someone who has a hard time trusting him, he is shocked.  Sadie has been involved in a sort of hate-you thing with him and now he is trying to bring it to an end.  He needs her to understand him on a new level.

 

Sadie cannot believe it when she realizes that Caleb has been honest with her.  He means what he says too?  How can a girl hold off from starting the feels?  She and Lollipop will just have to work at it.  Right?  Well ok, she will just work at it.

 

This was such a fun and sexy book!  Right from the very beginning I was laughing and devouring each page as fast as I could.  Always a fan of this series, this new title was a great installment.  Very much worth the read.  I highly recommend it!!  I give this a 5/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Heat
Take Me Again - Carly Phillips

Sebastian is involved in the family business.  Suddenly getting bad news, more than once, and he has no idea how to go on from here.  Then to his astonishment, an old flame returns.  He is still extremely attracted to her and wants to show her he has grown.

 

Ashley is unsure of her footing around Sebastian.  He still steals her breath, and makes her heart race.  Coming home after all this time has made some things change, and others have remained the same.

 

This was such a fast paced story.  From right at the beginning you can tell the heat and the sexy between these two.  Hard to deny real feelings and this is a great start to a new series.  I give this a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
