BEDDING THE BABYSITTER by Ava Sterling
Bedding the Babysitter - Ava Sterling
  Jenna, the babysitter, has decided to seduce Shane, the father. She is attracted to the older man and wants to be more to him than the babysitter. Will she get her wish?

This is a quick sexy read. Jenna is young but experienced. Shane does seem to be a lot older than her. I wish he were a little closer to her age. He does ask her about their ages but Jenna realizes that men her age have more maturing to do and she does not want bad experiences. Once Shane is convinced that Jenna is serious so is he. I liked that he thought of the future—short term as well as long term. I liked these characters and this short story.

Another Great Kresley Cole Series
If You Dare - Kresley Cole

Wow! This woman, Ms. Kresley Cole, can write anything. I began reading her action packed-under and above the covers- Immortals After Dark series many years ago. I read quite a few, then put her books on hold for a while. I came back last year and have nearly completed IAD. As we Geminis love to do, we read at least five books at one time (depending upon our mood). In doing this, I thought I would try Ms. Cole's earlier works after having recently completed her new-amazing-contemporary erotica series, The Game Makers. Knowing how great she handled Contemporary in addition to Paranormal Romance, I had faith that her earlier works-The MacCarrik Brothers trilogy- would be fantastic. Well, I can honestly say that I placed my faith in good hands because this series, so far, is really wonderful. For those who like non-paranormal romance, don't mind period pieces with minimal historical details, and more detailed erotic scenes with brawny, sensual, loving, alpha-males who happen to be Kilt wearers, then this is your series. This book of three, is well written, has a good story line, is erotic but tasteful, and is an easy read! I highly recommend it. There is just a special way that Ms. Cole, and only Ms. Cole, writes sex scenes that are the most unique and erotic in general romance. I have never read anyone else that writes them like she does. It's strange because the scenes are so normal and vanilla, but they make you puddle on the floor every time. And oh yeah, did I mention there's an actual plot that takes up most of the book! I know, right?! Amazing how now we can get a two-for-one deal in today's literature. This book is indeed a "kilt lifter" not a " bodice ripper." Just to clarify ;) But not a cheesy Harlequin; one of few genres I detest vehemently. Yes, there is a clear distinction. So, check this first book out via Overdrive, it's free! You can't go wrong with that, especially if you are new to her works. Enjoy what's under the kilt, I mean cover ;)

ONE MORE TIME by Rita Clay Estrada
One More Time (Harlequin Temptation, No 450) - Rita Clay Estrada
  Caroline is so traumatized by her childhood that she cannot let go of control and say what she wants and needs from Tony. She expects him to know. He loves her and realizes her past is standing in the way of their future but he is unable to break through her barriers. This was interesting to watch to see if Tony could get through to her but so frustrating because Caroline is so closed off. I don't know why Tony stayed around. You wouldn't have seen me hanging around no matter how much the person Caroline is so traumatized by her childhood that she cannot let go of control and say what she wants and needs from Tony.

Dissident by Cecilia London
Dissident (The Bellator Saga Book 1) - Cecilia London

“I wish I could take all your pain away...even though you think you've been permanently damaged. You have so much to give and you deserve so much in return. I just hope that eventually there might be some room left in your heart for me.”

This book is a bit different to what I usually like to read. This is why I was a bit hesitant to read it. But after a friend here on Goodreads recommended it to me and read a few reviews, I decided to give it a try.

Right off the bat, the prologue hooked me in. A man named Jack is seen running in the snow with his wife Caroline trying to get away from something. Caroline is wounded and it seems they are tiring fast. And whoever they are running from is only getting closer. The suspense of what was happening had me turning the page and not wanting to stop. From there on, the story was told alternating from past to present in Caroline's P.O.V.

“You see my humanity. And you accept me anyway. I feel like when you look at me you can see straight to my heart, bypassing all the messy details. You like me. I trust you. None of what I have matters to you nearly as much as who I truly am.”

In the past, we see how it is that Caroline met and fell in love with Jack. I really much loved watching Caroline's friendship to Jack grow into love. I loved it! I enjoyed the chemistry between them. I loved Jack and how he treated Caroline and her daughters. He was caring and hot. Caroline was a snarky intelligent woman and a very loving mother. I really liked her and I was very happy to see her slowly open up to Jack. They really were great together. Another thing I liked was that these characters acted like the adults that they were and never came across as childish or anything like that.

He backhanded her a final time, and everything went black.
Caroline jerked at the memory. Fuck. This definitely wasn't purgatory.

While I was drawn to the romantic story line, I won't lie, the whole political aspect didn't really do it for me. I've just never really enjoyed things involving politics so it was hard for me to follow their political jargon. These parts caused the books to become really slow for me so I did skim through it at times. However, I still managed to enjoy the story. The book picked up for me near the end that I became engrossed in what was happening between Jack and Caroline in the past, and what was happening with Caroline in the present. Then the ending happened...that freaking cliffhanger. I need to read the next book! Overall, this was a really good read. I didn't end up loving it but that doesn't mean I didn't enjoy or like it, because I did. I can't wait to read the next one but I think I will wait for all the parts to be out before I do. I just can't deal with them cliffhangers.
