Slow pace
Darkness at the Edge of Town: An Iris Ballard Thriller - Jennifer Harlow

Darkness at the Edge of Town does have an interesting premise, but the story is a bit drawn out and slow at times. I haven't read the first Iris Ballard novel, and there were things mentioned in this one that were confusing. The author does eventually explain some things as the story progresses, but I spent most of the book feeling like I was behind on the characters and what led them to this point in their lives. The book is well-written and even with the slow pace, it was a compelling and suspenseful read. However, I wouldn't call this one a thriller by any means. It does pick up in the end, but while there is suspense surrounding the cult and its leader, and Iris' snark was entertaining, the book lacks that heart-pounding element that I look for in a thriller. I did find some things a little hard to swallow, especially when Iris attempts to infiltrate the cult to find her brother. From the beginning of the story, we know that Iris is quite well-known and her face has been splashed all over the media, plus being so close to her childhood home. Good or bad, publicity is talked about, especially in a small town. I find it hard to believe that it takes as long as it does for anyone to recognize this woman who is so prevalent in the news. As I said, I haven't read the first book, so maybe that would've put a different spin on this for me, but in the end, the stretch of imagination required combined with the slow pace made it just an okay read for me.

Excerpt from Blood, Skin, and Bones:

“Well that’s good, I don’t want to have raccoon breath after I break my rule.” She couldn’t resist any longer, the draw she felt to him was strong. Sliding her legs over his she sat on his lap straddling him. His cheeks warmed slightly and she could have sworn he blushed. “Which rule are you breaking? Not that I’m complaining.” His hands slid to her hips and squeezed gently. “My kissing on the first date rule, I’m going to grandfather this date in as the second date since I spent the night already.” Leaning forward she touched her lips to his softly and shivered at how something so simple could light up her senses. Acer’s mouth was instantly devouring hers. She felt his fingers tighten on her hips and moaned into his mouth. Acer took that opportunity to slide his tongue between her lips and swirl it against hers. The urge to press down against him was high and his encouraging groan as she did only increased the need. Acer broke the kiss and rested his forehead against hers. “I don’t know how many rules you are willing to break tonight, but if it is only the one I do not know that continuing this path is wise.” “You’re right, I’m sorry if I’m being a tease. I didn’t mean for things to go that far...though I don’t regret a moment.” She was seconds away from breaking every rule she had when it came to him. Sive knew that she had those rules in place for a reason though and didn’t want to deviate too much even if he was heat on two legs. “I do not regret, I can be patient.” He ran his nose against hers and kissed her lips gently, sipping at her bottom lip and nipping it lightly. The whimper that left her lips was neither dignified nor her usual controlled response. “I’m worried that I won’t be able to be. You’re too good at this, you ought to come with a warning label.”

Witty and fun
Caden (The Harlow Brothers Book 2) - Bri... Caden (The Harlow Brothers Book 2) - Brie Paisley,Karen Mandeville-Steer

Caden is witty, fun, and emotional. While there are some truly heartbreaking moments, the banter between the Harlow siblings keeps things light and fun. While this is part of a series, it worked well as a standalone. Except, now that I've read about this fun family, I feel the need to go back and read Carter's story. It is a bit lengthy, but the story held my interest throughout.

Book Review For: STRONG ENOUGH by Melanie Harlow & David Romanov
Strong Enough - Melanie Harlow,David Romanov
Strong EnoughStrong Enough by Melanie Harlow
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

'STRONG ENOUGH" by Melanie Harlow & David Romanov is the story of Derek and Maxim. Derek is 36 single (although he had been married) and trying to work up a relationship we a current women. But he isn't finding her or any of it exciting. Then his sister calls him asking for a favor and he has never been able to turn her down. Maxim is from Russia and has just got off a plan her in America hoping to start a new job. But his ride never showed up so he takes a taxi to a local restaurant/bar to collect his thoughts when he luggage is stolen. The owner of the bar is Derek's sister so the favor is for Derek to pick him up and take Maxim home until he can get himself settled.
Which in turns leads them to have an encounter that later Derek tries to talk away. Maxim is not hiding that he is gay nor is he wanting to put up with Derek if he is going to act like nothing happened. But can they stop what they are feeling and move past their issues?
