STRIKE ZONE by Kate Angell
Strike Zone - Kate Angell

Brek and Taylor were engaged but she left him at the altar to guide a Thrill Seeker trip. He is now engaged to a quiet sedate woman which is what brings Taylor home. When they meet again Brek tries to show how little she means to him. He learns a lot of things--especially that she is still important to him.

 

Also Taylor's sister Eve who runs the Thrill Seekers office finds romance with Brek's teammate Sloan. He thinks he'll teach her but she teaches him what is means to truly love. When it looks like he might lose her he goes big.

 

I enjoyed this book. I liked Brek and Taylor. I loved Eve and watching her get the better of Sloan. The other secondary characters are also good. I'd like to see read of their stories especially Kasen (I hope he has one.)

Ashtyn Echols just made the most impulsive decision of her life. Maybe it’s a mistake, but it doesn’t feel like one. She can’t get married today. Not when she has her whole life ahead of her and a bucket list of things she wants to do before she ties herself down and becomes the perfect politician’s wife the way her family expects her to.
 
For the first time ever, Ashtyn is free. Free of all the expectations and demands. Free to make her own choices, and her own mistakes.
 
Tyler St. James has jumped out of airplanes, hiked into a volcano and plans to climb Everest someday soon. His brothers call him impulsive and it’s true. Adventure is his drug of choice which is why getting assigned security detail for the wedding of a Senator’s daughter seems like its destined to be the most boring day of his life… until she runs.
 
Putting her on the back of his motorcycle might seem crazy but it’s also the only responsible thing to do. If she wants fun, he’s the man for the job. She can check off a few of her bucket list items and he can keep her safe without her ever knowing he’s hired muscle.
 
Only, he never expected to fall for her during an impromptu road trip to Vegas. He never expected her to grow more independent and impossible to resist by the mile. And he never expected her to find out he was being paid to look after her.
 
Will the truth mean the end of their adventure, or is the destination just the beginning of their journey together?
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

“Ride a motorcycle. Take a road trip. Get drunk. Dance on a bar. Correct me if I’m wrong but you knocked those out already. Why are you bothering to write them down?” 


She shrugged, “I like checking things off to-do lists.” 


That made him laugh, “Somehow that doesn’t surprise me.” 


She continued, putting check marks by the things they’d done already. He could read most of the napkin even upside down. He smiled as he watched her write but when she paused and glanced back up at him from beneath her lashes, biting her bottom lip far too suggestively for his liking he felt heat curl in his belly and stomped it down immediately. 


“Don’t you dare write one-night stand on that list, Ashtyn.” 


She flushed a pretty shade of pink, “How did you know…” 


“You mentioned it last night. Remember?” 


That made her cringe, “Oh yeah… unfortunately I do.” 


“Don’t put it on the list.” 


She smirked, “But it is on my list.” 


“Not this one.” He tried to glare at her but wasn’t sure the look worked for him when she only smiled in return. “It’s not going to happen.” 


“Need I remind you that it’s my list, not yours?” She raised a perfect eyebrow. 


“Need I remind you that we’re sharing a hotel room from here to Vegas so you’re not going to have much privacy.” 


She looked offended, “You’re joking.”


“Not in the least.” He eyed the napkin and frowned. “You can mark skinny-dipping off that list too.” 


“Oh come on!” she laughed, “It’ll be fun.” 


“Give me the list.” He held out a hand but she jerked it away. “Ashtyn, give me the list.” 


“Fine.” She handed it over and he snatched the pen from her as well. 


He read through it again, noting everything that she had listed. When he glanced back up at her she was wiggling uncomfortably in her chair. He sighed and folded the napkin, putting it in his pocket. 


“I will help you check everything on this list off that doesn’t require bodily harm or the potential to be arrested.” 


She rolled her eyes, “And here I thought you took pride in being adventurous.”


“Every minute with you is exactly that, princess.” He winked playfully and then scooted to the edge of the booth. “Come on, if we’re going to get all this done, we can’t waste any more daylight.”

A PLAIN MALICE by Amanda Flower
A Plain Malice (Appleseed Creek Mystery Series) (Volume 4) - Amanda Flower

A tour bus from Mississippi goes to the Troyer's farm so see how the Amish live. As Simon Troyer is showing how to milk a cow, two of the tourists drop dead. Now the police and the Ohio Department of Health are all over the Troyer farm. Chloe is called in by Chief Rose to take the place of the deceased tour guide so she can keep the tourists in Knox County to complete her investigation. With the chief's blessings, Chloe investigates and lets the chief know the results of her investigation.

 

I loved this book. I liked that the Chief could work with Chloe. I also liked how things are changing within the Troyer family. I love Grandfather Zook. He is not the staid buttoned-down Amish grandfather. He has a sense of humor that comes out and gets the family through some of the traumas that have befallen them and their community. He and Chloe are great together. I love Timothy and how he has to walk a fine line between his Amish upbringing and what Chloe wants, needs, and expects. He does not always succeed but he and she work it out. Some of the secondary tourists were a riot, especially Gertie and her fish jerky.

 

The story was good and I had a hard time putting it down. I did not figure out the murderer until the end. Sad!

 

I hope this is not the last book of the series. I love these characters.

LOVE OVERBOARD by Janet Evanovich
Love Overboard - Janet Evanovich

One of Janet Evanovich's early romances, it is as funny as her Stephanie Plum series. Ivan has sold his home to Stephanie Lowe who has had nothing but problems with it. When her cousin Lucy decides to get married she talks Stephanie into filling in as the cook on Ivan's sloop. Stephanie is not much of a cook but she decides to help out her cousin. Ivan wonders what else will happen with Stephanie on the sloop as he met her as she rolled down the hill to the sloop then swore. After they get back on land Ivan requests a room for the winter at his old house which Stephanie wants to turn into a bed and breakfast. Then it gets crazy.

 

I laughed out loud at the predicaments Stephanie got herself into. I had so much fun reading this story. I liked the characters. I loved the motivation behind many of their actions. There were times when Stephanie and Ivan were serious as they came to know one another. Other times they were mentally face-palming themselves over some of the "action." This is worth the read.

Timing
Knocked-Up Cinderella - Julie Hammerle

Erin finally finds time for herself.  She is planning to make changes and has no idea how serious that would become.  Then she meets Ian and its as if the sparks cannot help themselves.

 

Ian is happy being rich and single.  He runs a successful business and does not have time to give to others who might demand of it.  Then he meets Erin and all bets are off.  He has to have more time with her.  He craves it.

 

I found the chase kind of charming.  This story is difference but the HEA gets there.  I love that the author gives us more story, more real pieces of their lives.  This was an ending that it builds to and I enjoyed reading about that climb.  I give this a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
