Hard Line (Bad Boys Online, #1)
Hard Line (Bad Boys Online, #1) - Erin McCarthy My senses go on full alert when an Erin McCarthy read is on hand. She's fearless when it comes to creating adventures and whether those adventures are in the boardroom, bedroom, a haunted house or while on the run, it's a captivating experience. Every once in a while, she lightens the mood from high octane danger to sensual delights and witty charm. Hard Line is a wonderful example of that. From heated words, wicked looks and mischievous antics Jared and Candy are that perfect combination of naughty and sweet. Breathlessly entertaining, with a capital B!

It's Hard Out Here for a Duke
It's Hard Out Here for a Duke - Maya Rodale
 
It's Hard Out Here for a Duke by Maya Rodale.  This is the story of James Cavendish and Meredith Green.  I have read the previous book, but feel this can easily be a standalone book. 
James is an American but has inherited the title of  Duke of Durham.  Although its a title he doesn't really want he goes forward to taking it.  James also takes one last chance at freedom by being with Meredith.  But neither really thought they would see each other again but that isn't the case.
Meredith is a commoner who is a companion to the dowager Duchess of Durham.  Which puts them in close quarters now.  But can anything become of the feelings that are growing between the two?
The books I have read in the series I have truly enjoyed and this being one of them!

Review: Cherish Hard by Nalini Singh
Cherish Hard - Nalini Singh

Seven years ago, Sailor witnessed a beautiful girl being dumped by her jerk boyfriend, but she ran out before he could get her name. He was enchanted by her beauty right then. Present day… Sailor works hard to get his fledgling landscaping company off the ground. He’s taken by surprise when he sees the woman who has been haunting his dreams for seven years. He’s even more shocked when he discovers they will be working together, closely.

 

Ísa is working to provide a stable home base for her siblings because her “Dragon” mother spends her focus and energy on her business empire. Ísa’s mother manipulates her into working for the family company for the summer where she is to oversee the development of a new business venture, and the sexy landscaper who is integral to the designs.

 

Overall, I liked Cherish Hard. I found the second half of the book highly entertaining and enjoyed Sailor and Ísa’s romance. However, the first half of the book didn’t flow smoothly for me. There were starts and stops. The pace was slow, and I didn’t feel a strong connection to the characters or storyline. I felt the story was going in too many directions - with Ísa’s own life (which is crazy), her best friend, the ex, her teaching job, her mom… It was hard to keep it straight. Plus Ísa was SOOOO wishy washy about her desires and feelings. It was hard to get behind her when I never was certain which direction she was going.

 

The second half was MUCH better than the first half. It almost felt like two different books.  Overall, the story worked much better - Ísa and Sailor spent time talking to one another, time together. We got to see their friendship blossom. There was genuine emotion and a much streamlined story. I loved the pair together and how they wanted to fight for each other. 

 

In the end, I enjoyed reading Cherish Hard and continue to look forward to more books set in this wonderful world. I’m guessing the next books will take place several years ahead, as at this point, Sailor’s brothers are too young for their own HEAs. (This book should be considered a prequel to Rock Hard, Rock Kiss series #2). Now that the world is set, I have a feeling the series will only get better from here.

 

My Rating:  B- Liked It, but I had a few small issues

12 Days of Death Note: Hard Run
Death Note, Vol. 3: Hard Run - Tsugumi Ohba,Takeshi Obata

So, L and Light are together now, and while it wasn't a surprise as to what was going to happen, having already seen the series, their ongoing battle is one of my favourite parts. Really enjoyed this book.

Yippee ki-yay! This is just fun.
A Die Hard Christmas: The Illustrated Holiday Classic - Doogie Horner,JJ Harrison

This is going to be short and sweet. The premise: Take <b>Die Hard</b> one of the greatest action films ever made, one of the greatest Christmas movies ever made, and an all-around pop culture touchstone and turn it into a (<i><b>NOT</b></i> for kids) rhyming picture book.

 

I'm not sure I really need to say more, do I?

 

Horner does an admirable job with taking the flick and turning it into a series of rhymes -- it doesn't feel like a gimmick. A lot of what he doesn't grab, Harrison takes care of in the illustrations. It's not perfect, things are left out, but with only 32 pages -- you pretty much have to. Only 1 four-letter word, too (technically, 12 letters, but you get the point).

 

The art is great -- although you could make the case that Harrison gave McClane too much hair. The art is dynamic, you can feel the action, the characters all look just right. Some samples of the illustrations are <a href="http://jjwharrison.com/projects/a-die-hard-christmas/" target="_blank">here on Harrison's site</a>.

 

One complaint? No Argyle. Which I guess makes sense given the limited space, but man . . .

This is a hoot -- yeah, a novelty book, but well executed and well worth a read. Something to bring out every December (if you're the type to do that).
