My Kind of Squad
The Chicken Squad: The First Misadventure - Doreen Cronin

"The Chicken Squad", by Doreen Cronin, is just hilarious. This book has 10 chapters of comedy due to a scared squirrel named, Tail. The actual chicken squad consists of four short, yellow, and fuzzy chicks that are trying to figure out what the squirrel is so scared of. Eventually, Tail convinces them that there is something lurking outside the coop and the chickens think it is after them! It is up to the squad to figure it out and save the day! If you want a book to engage your students or children and have them laughing, this is a book you want to read. I just recently read "The Chicken Squad" to a second grade class, and they loved every second. This book could be used as an end of the day read after they are packed up, or snack time read as they have a moment to recharge. This book could also be used for a narrative writing prompt about some "misadventures" they have been on and what happened in the end. This is an all around great, hilarious book that I think any elementary grade would enjoy.

Misadventures on the Night Shift - Lauren Rowe

Dancia and Abby work third shift at the Rockford Hotel. During the “ dead zone” hours- two to three hours where nothing ever happened at the Rockford and Abby would get a good chance to get some studying done.Abby is going to law school part time not because she loved the idea of being a lawyer but s she won’t be a disappointment to her parents. Abby had been a wild child in her teens with a zero impulse  control. But Abby had a secret- she was also the author of a of her own sexy blog.    Abby felt Lucas Ford was the sexiest rock star she had ever seen. The man had decorated Abby’s teen walls ten years ago. He was one of the few things Abby would let interrupt hier studies. Lucas had been Abby’s teenage fantasy. Danica has known Abby for two years since she had worked at the hotel. Danica said to come look at her phone it was a sex tape of Lucas and it made Abby hotter than hot. Danicia told Abby that Lucas had a meltdown at his concert  that night and had walked off the stage and left his band there and didn’t return.  Then about three in the morning Abby got a call about renting a penthouse but the person said they would be there in two minutes and hung up before Abby could get a name or credit card information.   Then walked in a nerdy looking man who seem to fit the voice on the phone then behind him came Lucas Ford. he was renting Penthouse A for a week. Abby couldn’t believe her eyes to actually see her long time idol. Then he sits down across the lobby and lights a cigarette Abby has to go over and tell him he can’t have a lit cigarette in a hotel  lobby in Colorado Lucas calls her Abby the Asskicker bit not in a rude way.  Lucas felt he was being held back creatively by his record label. Lucas had called down and specifically asked for Abby when Abby got on the phone he wanted her to come to the penthouse she said she was still working but she could bring him some food o she made him a quick sandwich and grabbed the bottle of booze he had requested and went to his room. But he was very rude to Abby and she told him off and left his room in a huff even left her blazer there in the room. Lucas knows he must write a song that will be a hit for his record company then he can produce his fourth and final album for them.   The next time Abby comes back to work she finds out she inspired Lucas and he wrote a song and his record label even liked it and Abby became his muse.

I didn't like this book’s beginning chapters. I felt it was just crass so I didn’t even try to make myself finish this book. If I can’t at least like the beginning of a book I find I just can’t get into it no matter how it ends. I am sure someone else loved this book just wasn’t for me.

good book and characters
Misadventures of a Virgin (Misadventures... Misadventures of a Virgin (Misadventures Series) - Meredith Wild

Juune’s girlhood  crush had been Kase. They had been at a party one night and ended up alone and kissed. June never forgot that kiss or Kase. but right after that kase left without even a goodbye. Kase had left for college but really it was a good excuse as everything he had thought to be true were all lies and he had just found out. Gerald was June's father and they both lived at the Grand hotel which Gerald owned June’s mother had died when she was young. Gerald wanted to expand his business and he would have to buy Kase’s family farm to do this but then Kase leaves and the deal falls through.  Gerald and Kase’s father Edwin had been feuding for a long  Kase had secretly wanted June while in HS but she was really too young. June had felt the same way about being with Kase. June had worked at her father’s hotel since she was thirteen and she still did. She spent most of her time at the hotel and didn’t go out much. Then after four years Kase came home and wanted to take over his family farm as it had been in their family for many generations. Kase wanted to make it profitable again. Then Edwin comes to visit and mentions to  June Kase is home and she may want to pay Kase a visit. Gerald tells June to go see Kase and talk him into signing the ranch over.  Kase says he doesn’t remember June’s name when she comes to visit and she over heard them when Edwin had went to get Kase. Kase took off to the creek to swim off the day and June follows him and they have words. She had saved herself for Kase and this was how he was acting. The next day Kase comes to see Gerald and tells him that if he gets two weeks of June’s company at the farm he will sign over the land to Gerald.  Kase wants June to spend two weeks at the farm to have an idea what he is giving up. Kase and June fall in love but then family secrets threaten to tear them apart.

I enjoyed this book and it was a quick enjoyable read. I liked the pace as well as the plot. I loved Kase and June together. I didn’t really care for Gerald he was a greedy ass. I did choke up at times. I did feel this was well written. But I felt one teenage kiss was a little unrealistic for June to wait for years for Kase especially not hearing a word from him or even being sure he would come back. I liked the twists in this book. There were other things in this book that weren’t realistic as far as I was concerned but it wasn’t enough to make me want to not finish reading this book. I liked the characters for the most part and I loved the twists in this book and I recommend.

Misadventures on the Night Shift - Lauren Rowe

I really wanted to like this rockstar romance, but in all honesty, I didn't find much romance or much to like about the characters. When Abby meets Lucas, she's snarky and quick to put him in his place, and I thought that she would be a character I could enjoy reading about. However, it doesn't take long before she starts coming across as more of a doormat than anything else and when her past issues are revealed, I found it hard to believe she would have so readily accepted Lucas' offer. Instead of romance, I found a girl who is face to face with her teenage crush and rockstar used to getting his way and willing to take full advantage of a situation.

To sum it up, the more I read, the more I felt like I was reading a Pretty Woman knock-off without the chemistry or romance. In addition to that, there's the fact that the book went on for some time after the week was over, so by the time this pair did see each other again to get their happy ending, it was just too little, too late. I will add that the conclusion did have the potential for romance if it hadn't taken so long to get there, but that was blown by Lucas' comment about the many other women he's had while they were apart, which wouldn't have been nearly as bad if Abby hadn't been naked and in his arms at the time. Overall, I'd have to say that yes, the steamy scenes were quite vivid, but the story was a disappointment.

Review For: Misadventures on the Night Shift Lauren Rowe
Misadventures on the Night Shift - Lauren Rowe

Misadventures on the Night Shift by Lauren Rowe is book 6 in the "Misadventures" series. This is the story of Abby Medford and Lucas Ford.
Abby works the night shift at a hotel so that she can study and also leave her days free for law school. Night shift was thought to be a quiet shift but that all seem to change when Lucas headed to the Penthouse suit of the hotel. Nothing was ever the same again for Abby.
Abby and Lucas story was really hot! But along with being really hot it had some funny and sad parts too. This is one book you will want to put down once you start reading it!
I cant wait to read more books by Ms. Rowe and in the Misadventure series!
Loved it!
