Crazy Like A Fox (Louisiana) (Born in the USA) - Anne Stuart

 

Hmm. I found myself wondering near the beginning what sorts of jobs the h was applying for. Supposedly she was working on her graduate studies in reproductive biology when she found herself widowed and having to drop out. I would think at the state of desperation she seemed to be, she'd look at waitressing jobs at diners or something. Instead, she's living out of her car, with a 9 year old daughter, and broke.

 

Then there's the motel - what sort can you get where you could stay in for $30-40 bucks? Granted, this book was written in 1990.

 

So she contacts her late husband's grandmother, and ends up in Louisiana where she finds herself pursued by one cousin, falling for another... and supposedly that one is a homicidal maniac...

 

Except that the homicidal maniac isn't, and the dullard lawyer cousin...is mentally disturbed and nobody knows. Weird. Because usually there's some sign somewhere...

Of course everyone figures all this out at the end when mild mannered lawyer tries to kill her - after calling the police - to set up a scene so his cousin will be incarcerated or executed. Grandmere asks him why he tried to kill his cousin...and he confesses to it all.

Heroine - justifiably anxious to escape. Too bad the mild mannered lawyer's grabbiness didn't make her wary of him. She continued being wary of the wrong one.

 

Hero - well, I guess being locked in the attic - sortof - beats being executed. Fortunately, his cousin's confession exonerated him, otherwise there would be no romance.

New Release Review! Hot Louisiana Knight (Knight Ops #3) Em Petrova
Hot Louisiana Knight - Em Petrova

 

 

Known as the brainiac of the Knight Ops team, Dylan Knight is okay with the guys making fun of his nerdier tendencies because he can still split a hair with open sights at twenty paces. When the special ops force is dispatched during Mardi Gras to a formalwear boutique suspected of harboring a terrorist cell, Dylan gets the nod to take point on the operation. After he bashes in a closet door and spots two big, frightened eyes and a mass of curly hair, his gut instincts kick in and he refuses to leave the woman behind.

 

Athena’s Creations is a boutique specializing in beautiful gowns and tuxedos, so why the government believes Athena is running some terroristic cell out of her charming store blows her mind. When her door’s broken down and she’s whisked off to a private safe house with a stern yet insanely hot special ops guy, she doesn’t know what to think or even feel. Except Louisiana nights are known to be hot and sticky, but what’s going on between her and Dylan can’t possibly be more than an adrenaline rush of circumstances, can it?

 

Dylan knows Athena’s not involved in what the gov is claiming, and he’s going to clear her name. And then clear the table so he can lay her out on it and feast on her gorgeous body. But then he learns the threat isn’t her—it’s DIRECTED at her, and he’s got to scramble to keep her safe…and his heart out of the mission.

 


New Orleans during Mardi Gras is quite exciting and that is the understatement of the year, but I just found out that it can get even hotter and more exciting when I joined Dylan Knight and the Knight Ops team on their newest mission, one where they are trying to find terrorists in a boutique.

 

Hot Louisiana Knight steams up the pages and thrills the senses as Dylan and Athena embark on a relationship train that is full of emotional ups and downs, fighting battles and sizzling attraction that can’t be denied. These two strong, captivating characters easily grab readers’ attention and hold on to it with both hands as they work through the romance as well as the mission.

 

The story is fast paced and kept me on my toes as the team try to figure out who the real bad guys are and I have to tell you that the story is also quite fun, especially the witty dialogue flung about between Dylan and Athena during their feisty courtship.

 

Em Petrova has created a thrilling new world with some delightful, sexy and charming characters in my backyard, not that it makes me biased or anything. But hey, I love a good ‘Knight in shining armor’ tale and this one is quite a thrilling ride that I really enjoyed reading. It is the first one that I have read in this series, so I have the first two to my TBR and I am looking forward to the next one.

She has a soft spot for babies, puppies and 90s Grunge music and believes in Bigfoot and aliens. She started writing at the age of twelve and prides herself on making her characters larger than life and her sex scenes hotter than hot.

 

She burst into the world of publishing in 2010 after having five beautiful bambinos and figuring they were old enough to get their own snacks while she pounds away at the keys. In her not-so-spare time, she is fur-mommy to a Labradoodle named Daisy Hasselhoff and works as editor with USA Today and New York Times bestselling authors.

I've been thinking what to say about my displeasure with this book. It was an okay read for me. Such a hyped book that I did everything possible to get my hands on it for months; giveaways, egalleys and such. To only be disappointed. There's nothing new here for me. It definitely wasn't what I expected in terms of the storyline. Maybe it's my age. I've read a lot of books and many heavy hitters at a young age. It takes a lot to impress me in story and writing. However, both don't have to be great. I'll take a good story with subpar writing or a well written book with just okay plot. Many love this one. It just wasn't for me. Beautiful cover and great publicity with a new up and coming author, I do believe Ms. Bennett is definitely one to watch!

Louisiana Longshot by Jana DeLeon
Louisiana Longshot - Jana Deleon

Fortune is being hunted with a price on her head, and there is a leak in the CIA. Now, she doesn't know who is betraying them, and her boss tells her she needs to go hide in a small town where everything will be boring and quiet. But that is the last thing that actually happens when she runs into a bit of trouble, two old ladies who aren't what they appear to be, and a dead body. 

This was a great start to this series. I fell in love with the characters, and laughed my through the whole book. It was a great story, and I can't wait to read more!
