cute, really cute!
High Test (Dreamspun Desires Book 47) - Elizabeth Noble
Independent reviewer for Divine Magazine, I was gifted my copy of this book direct for the author, that I write a review was not required. Hayden meets Neal at a university fund raiser and the chemistry burns hot and bright. But then Neal turns up at the coffee shop that Hayden works at, and assumes Hayden is an owner of said coffee shop. Every time Hayden tries to tell Neal otherwise, something gets in the way. Then the coffee shop goes bust, and a vindictive woman threatens to tell Hayden's secrets. So Hayden runs. But Neal has other ideas! Cute! Real cute. I've read Ms Noble's Vampire Guard series, and loved those. So when asked to read this one, naturally, I said yes! Its a great read, flows well, and while I saw that maybe Neal already knew that Hayden wasn't who he thought he was, it was kinda fun watching it all unravel. Loved that Neal, while extremely wealthy, was too obnoxious with it. All too often these billionaire characters are not nice people! But I loved Neal, his family though? Not so much. Hayden's family?? Loved them! Not overly explicit, but the heat level does creep up as the relationship between Neal and Hayden moves along. Nicely written. BUT!!! Only Hayden has a say. (and that's all I am gonna say about that!

a 4 star scorcher!
Temptation and Treachery (Dangerous Desi... Temptation and Treachery (Dangerous Desires) - Sahara Roberts
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book. Using the official blurb, cos whatever I write comes out all kinds of wrong! Andres “Rio” Rivera became his ICE profile years ago. Cold and calculating, he never promises anything beyond right now. But when he ends up with a cancelled flight and a shared hotel room with the secretive Celeste Patron, the fire behind Celeste’s buttoned-up exterior melts every barrier. He may only have her for one night, but that’s long enough to make her every fantasy come true. When Celeste leaves, Rio returns to hunting a notorious cartel leader. His shock upon arresting the man is eclipsed when he discovers the woman he fell for is his daughter…and she’s pregnant with Rio’s baby. I was thinking, before I started this book, I really need a down and dirty book. One with instant powerful attraction and a good deal of heat, maybe a scorcher, just to lose myself in. And boy did this deliver! Celeste's attraction to Rio is instant and extremely powerful. her alter ego Vix strongly approves of Celeste's choice! They get their down and dirty on early in the book, and once they get their wires uncrossed, and Celeste realizes that Rio is trying to keep her safe, they get it on again! Phew!! Other than the scorching heat level, the fact that Rio is after Celeste's father for Cartel crimes, and that he might not actually be responsible for those crimes, I figured really quickly who might really be. I did not think he would put Celeste's life in danger. Surprised at that bit! This is, from what I see, book 3 in the series. I did not know that before I went in, so I saw some future stories playing in my head as I read this one. But it appears all that plotting and planning was for nothing, since the pair I set up together, have their own, SEPARATE books! I would like to read them, especially if they are as hot as this one! A very well written, well needed.... 4 stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

fab 4 star read!
Lavender Fields - Claire Smith,Hot Tree Editing,Natalina Reis
Personal Review, I was asked to read this book by the author, that I write a review was not required. Sky meets Caleb when he falls too fast and can't stop in time. And falls for Caleb. Problem is, Caleb is the soul Sky has been sent to collect. Sky can't carry out his job so another angel is sent. But Sky keeps saving Caleb, and the other angel keeps coming. Can they figure out why Caleb has been targeted? I'm not one for instant professions of love, and it happens here, right in chapter one when Sky falls in love with Caleb. Now, it does kind of explain that away, since Sky falls in love often, but not to the depth of emotion he feels with Caleb. Still, its and instalove thing. Also, first person, present tense AND single point of view is not for me, because ...la.la.la.you know what I'm gonna say, and blah blah blah, hearing from everyone! BUT!!!! It's a nice book, a well written one by a new to me author. It does move at speed in places, and it gets a little . . . painful reading about what Samael does to Sky and his wings. Made me cry a little there! The heat level creeps up through the book. I did think it might actually end up clean but the boys do get their down and dirty on! Not explicit, but well written. Right level of heat for this book. It didn't seem the 200 odd pages its billed at, so a little longer than the usual hangover cure, but it landed in my queue just at the right time, so I'm filing it as such. A great little read. 4 stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

a nice 3 star read
Mended with Gold - Lee Welch Mended with Gold - Lee Welch
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book. After witnessing a colleague step on a land mine, and dealing with the aftermath of that, Alex runs to the other side of the world, to to get away from it all and to get back to his photography. Meeting Joe, a comic book artist, shook him more than he thought. But Joe is standoffish. Can Alex break down Joe's walls, as well as his own?? The reviews I find hardest to write are the 3 stars ones. The ones for books that I neither loved, nor hated. That it was just a nice easy read, that didn't blow me away at all. So this, being one of those, is gonna be short and sweet. It's well written but only Alex has his say, in the third person. Yes of COURSE I wanted to hear from Joe, I always want more I know I do, but I think I might have enjoyed this one more, had Joe been given a voice too. Its not overly explicit, there is no break up/make up. There is talk of drug use, but only in the context of looking to score, it's not described in any detail. It's a NICE book! It's only short, some 94 pages, took me just under an hour. A perfect lunch break, bath tub, hangover cure book. Will I read more by this author? Possibly. First I've read of their work. I'll give them another chance. 3 stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

3 good stars but upgraded to 4 after listening!
The Palisade (Lavender Shores) - Rosalind Abel
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book. Heir to a coffee shop empire, Joel is in Lavender Shores to secure a property for their flagship store. Andrew was only supposed to be a bit of fun while in town. But then the overnight stay turns into a weekend, and Joel finds himself in far deeper with Andrew than he ever imagined could be; Joel knows when he leaves, and he HAS to leave, it won't only break Andrew's heart, Joel's will be shattered too. First person, multi point of view is not my most favourite way for a book to be written but I quite liked it here. Didn't love it, but I liked it. It got me a little more into both man's mind. While It's very clear that Joel is hiding something from Andrew, it's not immediately clear what that is. I liked being kept waiting. I'm not one for declarations of love so early on, and it happens here. Put me off a little bit, to be honest. BUT! major points for not shortened Andrew, not at all! A really easy read, one of those you can fall into, and lose the world around you, and before you know it, you've finished the book and it did not seem like the 200 odd pages listed on Goodreads. A touch long for a usual hangover cure book, but it landed in my queue just at the right time to be classed as one. I've filed it as such. I have book two to read shortly. I am looking forward to that because there are hints here to what happened to Gilbert, Andrew's best friend. And I want to know more. I'm thinking, from those hints, that book might have a little more bite. 3 GOOD solid stars. Audio Review. Kirt Graves narrates this book. I tried to listen to another of his work and I did not like it. Not because of the narration, that was because of the other book. So I was a little wary going in, but I am so glad I gave him another chance! I am finding, much to my surprise, I am loving listening to first person/multi point of view books! Strange because I don't usually like to READ books written like that. But I LOVED Graves' narration here! His voices for Andrew and Joel were clearly different, and each chapter was told in the respective voice required. Graves reading voice is deep and even, and other voices are clearly defined, and I had no trouble following multi person conversations. He managed to get across all the emotions that I maybe missed reading. Because I found I enjoyed this book so much more by listening to it! And because of that, I'm upgrading my original star rating for the book from 3 to 4 stars. 4 stars for the book, 4 stars for the narration 4 stars overall. **same worded review will appear elsewhere**
