learning to trust is hard work
The ton's most notorious rake - Sarah Mallory

Molly Morgan lives quietly with her brother in his vicarage, helping to run a house for "unfortunate" women when her life is disruped by Sir Gerald Kilburn and his house party, particularly Beau Russington who is everything she thinks she should despise, but how come he attracts her so much.  Beau Russington is a renouned rake, well able to talk to women except for Molly who keeps him on his toes.

 

They're the core romance but ther are a few others and it's interesting to see the relationships build.

 

Entertaining and light.

The Immortal - Christopher Pike

I haven't been a professional bookseller all that long, but its still easy to get jaded about all the arcs that come in every month, but sometimes something like this book happens!

 

As a thirty-something woman who read everything he could get his hands on growing up, and that included Sweet Valley High and Baby-sitter's Club, this book is pure nostalgic gold. And while they might not have been great, sometimes those pink and lavender covers had some meat in them! Heck, I still will look twice at any old Apple Paperback, etc. title at a book sale just in case its offers up some vintage goodness.

 

This will be a lot of fun and I'm hoping Quirk is planning on a boy-series retrospective, too.

good book and characters
Her Surprise Engagement - Ashlee Mallory

Daisy is a single mom of three kids- Paul, Natalie, and Jenna. She also now has an ex husband who only acknowledges his kids when it is convenient for him in the last two years. Daisy had lost everything because of his lying cheating ex who had left her for a much younger woman. Daisy also won’t accept help from her friends and family. Daisy tries to prevent her kids from being disappointed but her ex husband is such an inconsiderate man even when it comes to his kids and only cares about himself. The he cancels a trip he was suppose to take  the kids to Disneyland at the last minute and instead goes on vacation with his girlfriend. Daisy doesn’t have the money to take the kids to Disneyland but her sister- in- law does have a family vacation place on Lake Tahoe and offers its used to Daisy and the kids and also Aunt Glenda who Daisy takes with them. When Daisy gets to the house she finds a man already there the man is the soon to be governor Jack Harrison and his thirteen year old daughter Lily and the puppy Oliver/Ollie. Jack’s wife had died and left him with their daughter. Jack doesn’t date.  Jack wants to spend time with his daughter and take her on vacation in a quiet secluded place where they can have peace. before their lives change with him becoming governor and all that goes with it. Somehow the paparazzi find out where Jack is and shows up at the house. Jack nor Daisy need a scandal to be started by the media. There is a hot chemistry between Jack and Daisy and makes Jack want things he hasn't wanted in a long time. Jack comes up with the idea for Daisy to pretend to be his fiance. When Daisy agrees jack will in turn will cosign a loan for five percent of the profits. As Daisy is a creative baker and her dream is to open a bakery but with little money,  no assets or good credit rating she has little chance of getting the loan. She also desires never to depend on anyone but herself again.

This was a good book and I enjoyed it. I also liked the pace and plot. I do advise you to read the other books in this series for a smoother read. I thought Daisy was a little too stubborn at times like accepting at least some help from her family and friends. This was a fun easy romantic funny read. I did feel Jack was a little too quick to say he was  all in as far as a relationship with Daisy goes. It takes a little longer to be in a full relationship. The kids and Ollie definitely added to this story. At times I did get frustrated with Daisy and/or Jack. I did chuckle at times while reading this. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I recommend.

You Again by Ashlee Mallory
You Again - Ashlee Mallory

DNF @ 24%

The blurb sure sounds swell, and I like the premise...It's the execution itself that's lacking.

The pace is plodding at best, the narration rather amateurish, and the characters, beside being bland and unappealing, sound like they're still in high school instead of in their thirties. If I wanted to read a YA book, I'd read a YA book, thank you very much.

Pursued for the Viscount's Vengeance - Sarah Mallory

Viscount Gilmorton has decided that he will wreak revenge on Deborah Meltham's brother by ruining her reputation, not realising that what he is assuming is mistaken and that it's all going to go horribly wrong when he falls for her.

There's a lot of moustache twirling bad guy going on here and I quite enjoyed it.
