"400 First Kisses" by E. L. Todd

 

My Thoughts....

 

This new series by this author featuring Bree, Cypress, Amalie, Ace and Blade that will definitely keep your attention with there being so much going on in this romantic emotional dramatic story.  You will have to keep up because the reader can get lost in the story as it unfolds. This was quite a shock for Bree when she finds out that she is married to this guy Cypress who had cheated on her.  Now, you will have to pick up this well written story to see who this all happened. I found this story very well thought out with some well developed amazing characters that will keep you turning the pages to see what was coming next.  Yes, you will see how Bree was cheated on by Cypress and what all he tried to do to make up for all his wrong. I could definitely understand Bree thought pattern as she was trying to deal with all of this situation that she found herself in.  Then next part of the read moves on to the story of Amelia and Ace.  Hopefully, there will be a story coming from all of that situation in the next reads.  Yes, this one will end in a cliffhanger and we will have to get the next part "325 First Fights" to see more of how this story will turn out for each of these interesting characters.

 

Thank you to the author for the read.

Kisses Sweeter Than Wine - Heather Heyford

Red longed for permanence of four walls surrounding her. A refuge where she could curl up at the end of the day and feel safe and protected from the outside world. If it wasn’t for relationship problems would have no practice she was a psychologist. Red was having breakfast with Sam who was charming almost to the point of arrogance. If you had known Sam when he was younger he was the scruffy kidgorgeous in the classic sense.  who came to school with uncombed hair, wearing clothes that looked slept in. He was never gorgeous in the classic sense and Sam had more issues than Vogue magazine. But lately Red;s heart beat rapidly every time she seen Sam. Lately Red stumbled over her words to Sam. It was Red’s fault she had pursued Sam starting the night of Sam’s homecoming celebration. For over a year Sam and Red casually hooked up but lately Red’s feelings had changed and weren’t casual when it came to Sam anymore. Red was always looking for her perfect home and saved her money for it. It had something to do with growing up in trailer parks and free school lunches and thrift store clothes. After breakfast Sam suggested they take a little ride on his harley and Red knew what that meant,. Sam didn’t do movies or romantic dinners for two or any of the other things official couples did. The real Sam was the most loving, giving man. All Sam’s problems originated when he was a kid at home and his psychodad. The face Sam put on for the outside world was a competent business man with an endless supply of jokes. But Red had gotten a glimpse behind the facade: the rages come and gone quickly, using work as an avoidance tactic and not wanting to let anyone close. But Red had to have a change in the way She and Sam were.

I had mixed feeling on these one. I liked the plot and pace a lot and it wasn;t a hard book to read. But something just didn’t click for me. How did Red  not figure out Sam’s childhood wasn’t great - the way he came to school should have told her some things about Sam and he would grow up with problems even another kid would notice something wasn’t right at home for Sam if they thought about it. I just don’t believe many women would accept wham bam thank you mam { Sam had said it had taken all of five minutes} and that sounds like Sam and Red when they went off on his harley. Until Red demanded more from Sam and to be a couple. I did like Sam and Red together. But I think Red shouldn’t push Sam so hard she acts more like a therapist to Sam then a girlfriend other than the sex. I liked the relationship Sam had with Manalo. I think Red needs a therapist herself. So this wasn’t really for ,e but I am sure someone else will like it.

Kisses Sweeter than Wine (Oregon Wine Country) by Heather Heyford
Kisses Sweeter Than Wine - Heather Heyford

 

There is a place where the wine flows freely. The people care deeply and the setting is as beautiful as the romances that develop there. It's Clarkston, Oregon, better known as Oregon wine country to Heather Heyford fans. Kisses Sweeter than Wine provides the chance to catch up with old friends and make new ones as well. Sam and Sophia bring modern to an otherwise small town. He's a soldier with a wounded heart. She's an independent woman with no plans to change. Can his broken heart break the walls she's erected around hers? Sweet memories are a priority when a Heather Heyford novel is close at hand.

A Witch's Handbook of Kisses & Curses / Molly Harper
A Witch's Handbook of Kisses and Curses - Molly Harper

Nola Leary would have been content to stay in Kilcairy, Ireland, healing villagers at her family’s clinic with a mix of magic and modern medicine. But a series of ill-timed omens and a deathbed promise to her grandmother have sent her on a quest to Half-Moon Hollow, Kentucky, to secure her family’s magical potency for the next generation. Her supernatural task? To unearth four artifacts hidden by her grandfather before a rival magical family beats her to it.

Complication One: Her grandfather was Mr. Wainwright and the artifacts are lost somewhere in what is now Jane Jameson's book shop.

Complication Two: her new neighbor, Jed Trudeau, who keeps turning up half naked at the strangest times, a distraction Nola doesn't need. And teaming up with a real-life Adonis is as dangerous as it sounds, especially when he’s got the face of an angel and the abs of a washboard—can Nola complete her mission before falling completely under his spell?

 

 

***2017 Summer Lovin’ Reading List***

An Irish witch on a special mission to Half Moon Hollow. It’s a cute, fun paranormal romance, in Molly Harper’s inimitable style. But it’s the intersection of this story with the continued adventures of Jane Jameson and Dick Cheney that truly made this worthwhile for me. I’m always interested in whatever shenanigans that Dick is enmeshed in and he features heavily in this book.

Half Nola’s adventures, half the Dick & Jane show, there is just enough of each to keep the plot moving along and to keep me smiling. Perhaps a bit predictable, but with enough humour & snark to keep me reading.

Recommended as light, fluffy summer material.

So I think I know what I will be doing this weekend!  I've been fighting with a nasty cold ever since I got home from Seattle, so I'm hoping to catch up on my sleep as well as get the necessary laundry, cooking, and housekeeping done.

 

But, I have Thunder Heights on interlibrary loan, so it can't be renewed.  Also, No Rest for the Wicked and Darkfever have holds on them, so I'll have to return them soon, too.

 

After those three, I'll be able to pick & choose.

 

Have a great weekend, everyone!
