Please, No More Nuts!
Please, No More Nuts! - Jonathan Fenske
Please stop the nuts! This is a follow- up to We Need More Nuts! in which two brother squirrels were counting and collecting nuts. Only in that book, the little brother was doing more collecting, way more collecting and putting the nuts inside his big brothers’ mouth until his big brother was ready to explode! In this book, both of the squirrels have had enough of the nuts and are ready to give them all away.

I like the rhyming in this book and I like the language in this book. The brothers used to love the nuts, they "adored them" and 'used to hoard them. “They talk about all the ways they used to eat the nuts and now, they are sick of them. We really should take them quick, because looking at the nuts makes them sick. As you can see, the rhyming in this book works really well. The language has some challenges which is good, words like Queasy, hooray, brunch, and chubby. Otherwise, many of the words repeat and it’s a great book since the rhyming is not forced. The illustrations are fun to look at too,

We Need More Nuts!
We Need More Nuts! - Jonathan Fenske

Two squirrel brothers are out picking up nuts, only one of the brothers is getting a bit carried away with how many nuts, he is collecting. I thought this Level 2 Reader book included some pretty funny illustrations as the little brother was stuffing the bigger brother's mouth full of the nuts while the bigger brother looked like he was ready to pop! Bigger brother looked as if he couldn't handle one more nut inside his mouth but little brother kept shoving them in, all the while, counting them for us readers. At first, big brother liked having all the nuts but later, enough was enough!

I liked the word recognition of the numbers in this book (we get 1 and one, 2 and two, etc. ), the different font types used within the book, and I thought the illustrations were comical. I can see how children would think this book is funny. The book counts from 1-24.

The Two-Date Rule - Tawna Fenske

Willa meets the hunk of a lifetime while her friends are enjoying strippers.  She assumes he is one of them.  Instead he has a solid job, and a sexy body, and moves she has never before seen.


Grady cannot believe he bargained a date with the most beautiful woman he has ever seen over a trip to the bathroom for three women.  He only knows he cannot wait to see her again.  He is rethinking all of his own ideas about dating after meeting Willa.


Such a sexy and fun story!  Just what I have come to enjoy from this author.  These characters made me laugh.  That is always welcome in a romance book.  I found this one had a lot of surprises and the best one you must read this book for.  I give this read a 5/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

ARC REVIEW The Two-Date Rule by Tawna Fenske

The Two-Date Rule (Smokejumper, #1)Smokejumpers #1, A sweet and steamy book all in one. I'm new to Tawna Fenske and figured what better place to start that with a new series and it was a good start. I really enjoyed this one it was funny in all the right parts and romantically sweet and hot in the bedroom, but not limited to the bedroom. Best of all it had relatable characters, Grady and Willa are opposites but their spontaneous reaction to each other soon grows deeper but not without its hardships because of those differences.

Willa had a difficult childhood, her mother left and her father was an alcoholic and a gambler and more often than not they had to spend nights "out camping" because of some bill wouldn't get paid. Willa left home as soon as she could and became a successful web designer with her own company. But she's still a smart buyer, she hates spending money when she doesn't have to and when she does she's smart about it, her friends are use to her. Willa is also a planner and a hard worker and because of that she wasn't going to let anyone sidetrack her from her goal or her work hence the two-date rule.

Grady is one of ten kids, he can handle chaos. Growing up the son of a smokejumper he knew getting involved in a relationship would be difficult for his partner, he saw how it affected his parents and how hard it was on his mom for his dad to be away months at a time. He decided going into his career he wasn't going to make plans his work was dangerous enough why look forward to something if there's a chance you might not make it home. 

Willa gives Grady his first date, and then a series of non-dates; miniature golf is not a date, it's a group outing not a date, meeting his parents isn't a date and so on until one day it is the second date and then third. Willa and Grady have pretty much fallen in love and not even drama from her past can get in the way of her happiness at least until it interferes in her business. Then their differences seem insurmountable and it would take a pretty big leap for them to find their way back to each other.

Overall, it was a pretty good read. I liked all the characters and the funny situations; all the non-dates. Grady's parents are pretty awesome too. I look forward to the upcoming books in this series.

Believe It or Not
Believe It or Not - Tawna Fenske

Violet is an account who left home when she got the chance.  She moved from Portland, OR to Portland, ME.  Her mother is Moonbeam, psychic and into anything alternative.  She is back home to help her mom out after she falls and breaks a few bones.  Drew owns the bar next door.  His bar also happens to have (male) exotic dancing for a few night a week.

This was a fun story of opposites attract.  I liked Violet's knowledge of trivia and recognition of various songs Drew would play which would cause her to blurt out things during reading that were true.  I liked Drew's attraction to Violet, even though she was similar to his ex-wife (and what he didn't think he needed).

I did think the ending was a rushed and abrupt and an epilogue would have helped.
