Have I ever mentioned that I like Mary Calmes, I mean really, really like...
When the Dust Settles (Timing Book 3) - Mary Calmes

I'm sure I have so I'm also sure that it comes as no surprise that I read this story. Now, what some of you may not know is that of all her series 'Timing' is probably my least favorite, don't get me wrong I'm not saying I don't like it as a matter of fact I loved the first book. Book 2, After the Sunset not quite so much it was ok but if I had to re-read a series by Ms. Calmes 'Timing' would not be my first choice. 

 

After having said all that I just need to add "Holy hell, I LOVED THIS STORY!!! It was awesome, it melted my heart...no scratch that it melted me from head to toe. I love, love, love add a few more loves in here for me please...love Glenn Holloway (he's Rand's step-brother, half-brother...he's Rand's brother) He's awesome." I don't really remember much if anything about Glenn from the first two books (please keep in mind that I only read this series once a long time ago) so while he's related to Rand, he's basically a new character for me. I do remember Mac Gentry from the earlier books. He wasn't there a lot but he did show up and yet I didn't see him being the other MC in this story at all...nope, nope, nope Ms. Calmes totally took me by surprise on this one.

 

Glenn's basically estranged from his family. As for whose to blame for this well let's just say there's plenty of blame to go around so it was definitely a group effort with Glenn and his internal rage doing the maintenance work on the estrangement. Thankfully we have Stefan Josh doing his thing and forcing people to sort out their baggage. 

 

Truthfully my one and only issue with this story is that it was too short. I needed more Glenn and Mac time. More after becoming a couple time. I would certainly be on board for another book featuring Glen and Mac with a strong dose of Stefan Josh and Rand.

 

While this story was complete at the same time I was left feeling like there could be so much more added to it and I really, really vote yes for the adding to it option.

 

'After the Dust Settles' was classic Mary Calmes as only she can do and I loved it. Without fail I smiled from start to finish because I knew that at the end of it all I would get the HEA that I can depend on her stories to give me and while this may not be my favorite Mary Calmes series I can honestly say that I'm hoping for more.

Wha.........?

So just relaxing, reading, and getting ready to snack.

I innocently start to peel my orange.

Look down.

See this,

 

The peel was NORMAL on the other side!

No indication of the dark, unholy occurrence that was seething underneath.

 

You know, potato chips have never done this to me...

FAKING IT BY: CORA CARMACK
Faking It - Cora Carmack

 

     I liked Faking It.  I was happy to see Cade get some action in this book, after all his struggles being locked in the friend zone in the previous book.  Cade and Max were both likeable characters and their story was funny and cute. While I do like this series so far, I am really hoping the next book brings a little something extra to it. I like the characters and stories, but nothing has brought it to the next level yet. I like it all, but I don't love it, and unfortunately with as many books as I read, that is a huge difference. It's the difference between these stories standing out and being memorable or just falling into background and ultimately being forgotten about.

Hot!
Mark Cooper versus America - Lisa Henry,J.A. Rock

Damn. That was hot.

 

Captivating, funny and hot.

 

Most of the time I complain that books in our genre have too many sex scenes in them. I guess that’s not right. They just have the wrong sex scenes in them! Boring, long and unimaginative. Not so in “Mark Cooper versus America”! I can’t remember the last time I enjoyed every single sex scene in a book. I know I repeat myself, but damn, they were hot!

 

And before everyone starts thinking there’s nothing else in this book – there is! For example rushing, pledging or hazing. I must confess, at first I was as clueless as Mark. But I really enjoyed learning more about fraternities (is it really that bad in some of them? O.o).

 

Then there are the characters – everyone of them unique. Mark and Deacon are great together (and hot), Brandon broke my heart, Bengal is an asshole and Blake a sweet and sometimes clueless bloke. In some way I loved them all.

 

And before I forget it – the story: Mark, an Australian guy, comes to America, is confronted with lots of weird words and spelling mistakes and is convinced that he will hate it here. But then there’s Deacon. And Deacon isn’t so bad at all. Actually he’s hot and smart and suddenly America isn’t as bad as it seemed. If it weren’t for these strange fraternities…  

 

A funny, gripping and heartwarming book (I lost a few hours of sleep because of it!).

 

Oh, and hot!
