Blame It On Texas By Amie Louellen
Blame It on Texas - Amie Louellen

i been reading this off and on for 10 days. This a sexy and fun read. Couldn't stop thinking about it. I been wondering why i haven't seen any blonde cowboy romance til i stumbled upon this book. This book is about a woman returning to Texas and want Ritt Mccoy to sign the divorce papers so she can return to her own life but proven to be difficult because Ritt doesn't want a divorce nor ready to sign divorce papers in the beginning. She pegs him as stubborn and he thought the same of her. The bickering between them is funny and i had a good laugh. They dance around desire and push away. They are the most stubborn characters i ever seen til everything start changing. Shelby and Ritt set on a journey of hurt, finding love again and happiness. Unfortunately this is definitely a HEA, no surprise there but i am happy about that though. I enjoyed this book and i definitely check out more from this author.

What I Did For Love by Shannon Elizabeth Phillips
By Susan Elizabeth Phillips What I Did for Love (Reprint) - Susan Elizabeth Phillips
bookshelves: library-booksfavorites 
Read from January 09, 2015 to October 08, 2016

 

I've been reading this book on and off for two years and also been between books since then. It's safe to say that i am happy to finished reading the book and fangirled twice. Once when Laura and Paul finally are together and made love to each other. The second time which would be when the book ended and happy endings were in order. There was drama, heartbreak, feels, scandals, anger, anguish, humor, love, lies and deception in this book but love, honor and devotion in marriages is what matters most at the end. I'm so happy that georgie got her happy ending with bram and got remarried and also finding her redemption. I even love chaz and Aaron. I had a feeling that Laura would end up with Paul and Aaron end up with Chaz. What's funny is how far paparazzi, the leeches goes for a honest buck, hell bent on destorying celebrities but love free food. I enjoyed reading this and planning on rereading it years from now. This is the first book i have read by Shannon and plan on reading more from her soon! ♏

Vegas Love By Jillian Dodd
Vegas Love - Jillian Dodd
Read from November 30, 2015 to November 13, 2016

 

I loved the long epic vegas crazy adventure and feeling like i was going to cry when Ashlyn did what she did to Cash. I love the hot hookup in vegas at a wedding and it was quite steamy to say atleast. There was scandalous b*tches, manipulated people working for her, love, promises, vegas vows, teasing, cheating, happiness, jealous exes, one unforgettable wedding that is impossible to forget and leeches want to get your story then twist it around like a spider spinning it's web of lies. I laugh really hard when i read this book and had little fangirl sessions. I love Cash. He's romantic, sexy and sweet. I'm glad however that everything work out for her mother and love how the story ended. This is the first book i read by this author and enjoy reading it. Can't wait to read more by author.

Heat Of The Storm by Elle Kennedy
Heat of the Storm - Elle Kennedy

Read on August 25, 2016

 

I press my face against the couch pillow and was laughing then look back at the story thinking out loud that is so wrong when Will kiss another woman to make Mackenzie jealous. The sex was hot and the feels was something else too. I love Will's dominance and when the novel opens Mackenzie is shown to be a submissive but stubborn as well til she finally succumbs to his desire completely later in the story, leading her to confess her feelings for the man she loves. Carson and Holly are a crazy couple. I've enjoyed their banter and his threats to Will are hilarious. Love Shelby and holly's matchmaking skills. Too cute and hilarious. Even Holly and Will's scheme is brilliant but awkward as well. This is the first story that I've read by Elle and I'm already intrigued to read more of her books.

Chose The Wrong Guy, Gave Him The Wrong Finger by Beth Harbison
Chose the Wrong Guy, Gave Him the Wrong Finger - Beth Harbison

Ten years ago, Quinn Barton was on her way to the altar to marry Burke Morrison, her high school sweetheart, when something derailed her. Rather, someone derailed her the Best Man, who at the last minute--and with shocking revelations--begged her to reconsider the marriage. Quinn, stunned, hurt, and confused, struggled between ignoring what she was told or running away. She chose running. With the Best Man. Who happened to be Burke's brother, Frank. That relationship didn't work either. How could it, when Quinn had been engaged to, in love with, Frank's brother? Quinn opted for neither, and instead, spent the next seventeen years working in her Middleburg, Virginia, bridal shop, Talk of the Gown. But when the two brothers return to town for another wedding, old anger, hurt, and passion resurface. Just because you've traded the bad guy for the good guy for no guy doesn't mean you have to stay away from love for the rest of your life, does it?

Amazon.com

 

 

Quinn has been dating Burke since she was 14 years old. Now 21, it's the day of their wedding. Moments before she sets out to walk down the aisle to her happily ever after, Burke's brother Frank comes forward, begging Quinn not to go through with the wedding. When pressed for his reasoning, Frank explains that Burke has actually been unfaithful to Quinn a number of times over the years. Frank had assumed that Quinn knew but just chose to ignore it. It was only in the days just prior to the wedding that he started to suspect she honestly knew nothing about Burke's infidelity.

 

Understandably, Quinn is quite overwhelmed by the news, especially given the time it's dropped on her. In a flurry of rage and hurt, she leaves Burke at the altar. Needing to work out those feelings of revenge, Quinn rounds up Frank for a whirlwind drunken road trip to Las Vegas, Nevada. After a few days, they come back to their hometown in Virginia. Quinn takes up her work in her family's bridal shop, never speaking of anything that's happened. For the next 10 years, she keeps up this emotional shell, staying in town while Burke and Frank go off to create their careers elsewhere. That is, until the guys' widowed grandmother announces her plans to remarry. Grandma hires Quinn to design her wedding dress, but also sneakily arranges ways for Quinn to reconnect with both Burke and Frank. Old unresolved feelings fly all around Quinn and the brothers, forcing her to really dig deep and think about what .. or who... she really wants in her life.

 

I have to agree with other reviewers who said the very best part of this book was the title. Admittedly, that's what made me gravitate toward it even though I'm not the biggest contemporary reader. That title just gave me the best laugh, because what girl can't relate in some way? ;-)

 

There were some cute moments of banter here and there. I did like the potential of Frank and Quinn but I felt like Frank wasn't quite developed enough as a character. Burke's reasoning for what he did all those years ago made me groan so much. Yes, you can excuse some bad behavior with that sort of dismissive "You make stupid choices when you're young" but it still mostly felt like a cop-out. Going back to Frank's story, I also felt like given the conclusion of the novel after nearly 400 pages, the history between him and Quinn needed to be more detailed for the curtain to come down where it did.

 

The characters fell a bit flat for me -- except the grandma, she was fun! It's a decent book for a chill beach-day read, but I didn't develop a deep enough interest in any of the characters to be all that invested in the outcome of any of their stories and it didn't feel like the type of book I would see myself revisiting anytime soon.
