Arc Review: Bama Girl Blues (Hot Wired #3) by Gracen Miller
Bama Girl Blues (Hot Wired #3 - Rocker Romance) - Gracen Miller,Brannon Jones,Kristina Haecker

What a crazy pair! I loved Keith and Vanessa right from the start. She's a woman that knows what she wants, when she wants it and is not afraid to ask for it when necessary. Even though she's known some band members since childhood she's kept a low profile and would rather not have anything to do with the spotlight. Keys was quite a charmer that because of his family's business has always been in public's eye, even before he became a rock star. To him fame and fortune came with the territory. 

At the start of their fling, Vanessa had lots of plans for her future and the last thing she wanted was to start a relationship with her longtime friend Keys. She knew that would impede her from fulfilling her career goals but at the same time she could not keep denying the pull she felt towards him. When she decided to make her move (because it was she who made the first move and I loved her for that) she made Keys a proposition that was impossible for him to resist.

The chemistry between the two was off the charts. They had this easy bantering that made their relationship pretty relatable and what I loved the most of it was that there was such an openness to one another that not only did I find cute but also incredibly sexy. 

The rock band members were a riot and a half and their dynamics made them sound more like a family than simply band mates. I had forgotten how much I truly liked this bunch.

In short it was a great romance story and if anything the only thing I didn't like much was the fact that we keep hearing over and over again about Nessa's Southern roots and her not too-skinny body. I get that both situations set the base for the whole conundrum but I didn't think it was necessary to be reminded of it every five minutes. But that's just my picky self being picky. 

3.5 stars rounded to 4.

Arc Review: Resurrection (Redemption Harbor Series #1) by Katie Reus
Resurrection (Redemption Harbor Series Book 1) (Volume 1) - Katie Reus
Action-packed, romance-filled, and riveting to say the least; this story will grab you from page one! 

CIA agent Skye fakes her own death to protect her partner and lover Colt Stuart and all those he holds dear. She’s never stopped loving him and knows she hurt him deep but she’s also sure what she did was for the best. When a dear friend of Colt is kidnapped she sees her rescuing as an opportunity to somewhat make it up to him, and although he might never know it was she who rescue his friend, she still goes for it. What she didn’t account for was that Colt would find out she didn’t die and once he did he wouldn’t let her go ever again. Not only that but he would go to extremes to protect her and never have to lose her again. 

OMG! This story! To me it had one of the best opening convos ever! It was funny while setting the pace for what was coming. Sky was one of the most assertive, self-confident, witty, and cool heroines I’ve ever read. Kudos to the author for giving me such an awesome character. Colt is your typical self-assured and overprotective alpha CIA agent that will do anything to protect those he loves (and I mean AN-NY-THING), however what’s great about his relationship with Skye is that he sure as hell knows Skye’s boundaries and as the gracious and romantic lover he is, he also knows how to make her feel safe and cared for. 

The dynamics between the friends was heartwarming and was pulling my heart strings at every corner. As a reader I could feel how much they really cared for each other. Once the “mission” is officially over we are immediately introduced to the next one and luckily we don’t have to wait too long as the second installment will be out within the next few months. This story was the perfect introduction to the series and if it’s any indication of what the whole series will be then we sure are in for a heck of a ride.

I received this book from the author at no cost to me and I volunteered to read it; this is my honest opinion and given without any influence by the author or publisher.

Review 4/5 stars: Lord of Chance (Rogues to Riches, #1) by Erica Ridley
Lord of Chance (Rogues to Riches Book 1) - Erica Ridley

This is sort of a re-release since it first appeared in the Scandal’s Daughters Anthology, but fret not as this “is an expanded ‘Author Edition.’"

Charming and complex characters, well-told story, and not your usual rags to riches plot make this a delightful and engaging story. Anthony was a gambler down on his luck and up to his neck in debt when he met Charlotte. They were both fleeing from a dark past at the same time that they were looking for a different, brighter future. Unfortunately a play of words in a foreign place bound them together into marriage and their hopes at a brighter future just tumbled down.

The romance itself was emotive and believable. They grew to care for each other over a feasible amount of time to the point of willing to sacrifice their love for the sake of each other’s happiness. If anything, the only thing I didn’t find plausible is that they spent a lot of time together, alone, in a bedchamber, and there was no mention of any kind of sexual frustration. There were plenty of good reasons why the deed wasn’t done but I would have thought some tension would have been more palpable. Other than that, I loved their relationship because more than anything they were friends and they supported each other, even when they could become pariahs in society.

The settings were rich in detail and the story had that fluidity that I love because it keeps me engrossed in the story. I also loved that it dealt with deep themes such as addiction and prejudice yet it kept a light side and didn’t turn into a sob-inducing story. I do believe addiction is a tough subject and even harder to overcome however I’ve also witnessed that given the right circumstances and for the right reasons a person can actually beat it. That’s one of the reason I don’t think Anthony’s recovery was that far-fetched and it could very much have happened quickly indeed.

Twists and turns and the fact the story definitely did not have the ending I expected make this a most delightful and entertaining read and I definitely recommend it to those looking for a well-told, unique, romantic story.

Review: 4 out of 5 stars TO TAME A WILD LADY by Ashlyn Macnamara
To Tame a Wild Lady: A Duke-Defying Daughters Novel - Ashlyn Macnamara

TO TAME A WILD LADY (Duke-Defying Daughters #2)

 

To me this was a story of reverse roles where the rogue doing the seducing was the lady and the temptation was the gentleman.
We met Caroline in the first installment of the series as the second daughter of the Duke of Sherrington. Although a lady of good breeding, she had no interest in securing a husband and even the prospect of marriage was the least of her concerns. He main concern had always been her horses and more recently to take part in a very important race where only gentlemen were allowed. When Adrian was hired as the new estate agent some of his ideas did not sit well with Caroline because they would affect her horses and because they would only complicate her very private plans to be included in the men-only race she so desperately wanted to be part of.

Caroline and Adrian could sound the typical enemies-to-lovers trope but that could not be farther from the truth. Adrian is one of the most honest, caring, hard-working, loving heroes I’ve read in a long time, thus he really never behaved as an enemy to her; on the contrary, he was always protective and considerate. Every time Caroline tried to sound petulant or gave voice against one of his plans he very patiently explained why he thought his plans would work or simply put her mind at ease with straightforward logic. In other words, he always treated her with respect. Even when feelings for each other were expressed he clearly explained his position could never let him aspire to more with her and that for both their sakes he could not let her love him.
I liked how they resolved their love issues and how they reached their HEA. Throughout the book Caroline sounded impetuous, sometimes childish, and way too improper for a lady of her times (blamed it on her father that was never near to keep an eye on his unmarried daughters but was always willing to tell them what to do if he so saw fit) however the fact that she was willing to give up her most valued possession in order to see Adrian happy redeemed her in my eyes. I liked the first one better but this one is still another good read IMHO.

Axion (Red Rock Alien Mail Order Brides #2) by Erin Kellison
Axion: Red Rock Alien Mail Order Brides 2 (Intergalactic Dating Agency) - Erin Kellison

We met our main couple in the first book of this series by this author. I liked Leif but I had no idea he’d be so funny in his own unique way. He was aloof and cold, and the least thing in his mind was love. Nina on the other hand had been looking for love and a way out of this world for most of her life. Although Leif was there and she thought he was attractive they never really clicked. That is until a visit from the future changed everything in their present and battle for survival and to find out who’s friend and who’s foe took place.

 

This book has everything a sci-fi romance story should have: aliens, shifters, a malicious race trying to take over the world, time-travel, laugh out moments, a spunky heroine, and of course a hunky, intelligent outer being.
You would think that would be plot overkill but it’s not! The whole story is set at a perfect pace and it’s told with a super smooth flow. The chemistry between Leif and Nina was there from the get go but didn’t feel rushed. I only wish these stories by the author were longer because they are sooooo good and as usual they only leave me panting for more!!
