Murphy’s Law By Lori Foster $1.99
Murphy's Law - Lori Foster

ANYTHING THAT CAN GO WRONG. . .

Nothing is going to go wrong. Ashley Miles has worked too hard for her independence to let some Bentley-driving hunk named Quinton Murphy interfere with her plans—or her freedom. Yes, the chemistry is phenomenal. Kind of scary, actually. But that’s it. NO emotional commitments.

. . .WILL

But he’s SO wonderful—a woman could fall in love . . . How did that happen? That wasn’t part of the plan! But can she trust him? Really trust him? The man is just somysterious. There’s only one solution: put it all on the line and see what Quinton does when she tells him how she feels. And hope everything that can go wrong. . .won’t. . .

Ho-hum
Don't Tempt Me - Lori Foster

Ooh boy, what to say about this one? To be honest, I just want to say, lacking effort. Foster's writing is a bit like Shalvis with its easy readability and tendency to stick to a formula. It's a formula I greatly enjoy but this one, especially with the main couple, felt completely uninspired. 

I don't feel like I really grew to know the hero at all and both the hero and heroine came off a bit ho-hum. I got way more from the secondary couples and especially the secondary romance, in which about 30-40% of the story is given to. 

As the first in the series, the series baiting characters stole the show more than once and even though I really liked the secondary couple, it seems their romance is resolved here, I really wanted them to get their own book. 

This felt rushed, squeezed in, and the main couple was uninspired. Looking at the second in the series, it looks like Foster continues with the two couples format. With books that are around 300pgs, I sometimes don't find that long enough to fully flush out a romance to my liking, adding a second couple makes the story feel more like two novellas smashed together. I can see people who want more of shorter, quicker romances liking these better. 

The half star is for the German Sheppard doggie that comes in towards the end :)

Dead End Road by Lori Whitwam
Dead End Road - Lori Whitwam
 
 
Title: Dead End Road
Series: Vengeful Things #1
Author: Lori Whitwam
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release: July 4, 2017
Publisher: Limitless Publishing
Kindle Unlimited
 
 
 
 
A writer, a musician, an unexpected love...and a killer who wants to destroy it all. 
 
Reclusive author Abby Delaney never dreamed she'd meet her rock-n-roll fantasy Seth Caldwell in her quaint, lakeside town…or that his love might be deadly.
Seth is weary of road trips, endless parties, and dead-end relationships, but what choice does he have? Songwriting and performing are all he knows. Then he meets Abby and finally finds a heart he can’t stand to break. 
But forget small-town tranquility. An attempt is made on Seth’s life, and another mysterious death hits eerily close to home. Everyone’s a suspect, he’s taunted with ominous messages, and it’s only a matter of time until the killer finds his mark. 
What if the only way to keep Abby safe is to do the one thing she can never forgive—walk away? 
As the noose tightens, one thing becomes clear…
If the killer isn’t found soon, Seth and Abby will take their love to the grave.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Lori spent her early years reading books in a tree in northern West Virginia. The 1980s and 90s found her and her husband moving around the Midwest, mainly because it was easier to move than clean the apartment. After seventeen frigid years in Minnesota, she fled to coastal North Carolina in 2013. She will never leave, and if you try to make her, she will hurt you.

She has worked in public libraries, written advertising copy for wastewater treatment equipment, and managed a holistic veterinary clinic. Her current day job, conducted from her World Headquarters and Petting Zoo (her couch) is as a full-time editor for indie authors and small publishing houses.
Her dogs are a big part of her life, and she has served or held offices in Golden Retriever and Great Pyrenees rescues, a humane society, a county kennel club, and her own chapter of Therapy Dogs International.
She has been a columnist and feature writer for auto racing and pet publications, and won the Dog Writers Association of America’s Maxwell Award for a series of humor essays.
Parents of a grown son, Lori and her husband were high school sweethearts, and he manages to love her in spite of herself. Some of his duties include making sure she always has fresh coffee and safe tires, trying to teach her to use coupons, and convincing the state police to spring her from house arrest in her hotel room in time for a very important concert. That last one only happened once—so far—but she still really, really appreciates it.

His Name Is Justice
Hard Justice (Body Armor) - Lori Foster

Not gonna do one of my long, in depth reviews for this one 'cause really, I just read it for the giggles. 

 

I really enjoyed this one. Like I said, not normally into romance but when I do read them I prefer them overdramatic and silly. This one fit both the bills. So many points where I laughed and just HAD to text a line to my friends 'cause it was just so ridiculous. It's a decent plot, a cute story and a quick read. And, as a romance novel, it was delightfully steamy and romantic. 

 

That said, Lori Foster is not allowed to use the word "hard" every again. You could turn it into a drinking game how many times the word was said. 

 

This was such a fun read. A nice break from the more serious novels I've been reading. 4 out of 5 Stars.

Hard Justice (Body Armor) - Lori Foster

I don't normally read romances but this one came through at work and I found it so delightfully funny that I had to read it. So far it's not disappointing.
