Well this was one short but sweet story...
Last Chance - RJ Scott

'Last Chance' was originally released in the 'Love for All Seasons' charity anthology...which I have to admit I missed out on and if this story is any indication of what it contained I definitely missed out on something good.

 

It's Luke and Justin's last year of college and granted they're not besties or anything of the sort but they shared a scorching hot kiss during their freshman year that Luke's never forgotten and if you ask Luke...Justin can't seem to remember, however, that's where Luke is about to find out that he's wrong.

 

'Last Chance' is just that as we quickly discover it's the story of the lengths that Justin is willing to go to in an effort not to loose what he feels is his last chance to have something with Luke...the boy who's never left his mind or his heart.

 

First off I'm just going to get this off of my chest right from the start...my only real problem here is that this story has the potential to be so freakin' much more. I loved Luke...he's an adorable geekie, ginger and Justin's equally adorable but even more than that I just kept wondering how on earth the captain of the hockey team...the head jock and yes this would be Justin, ended up with a group of the dorkiest, most incredibly goofy and sweet hockey player jocks for his friends. These guys were hilarious and I loved them and seriously dear author...there's a series here. Every one of them needs a story all their own...opportunity's knocking....please answer the door!!! and while your there maybe Luke and Justin's story could be expanded to start with that first kiss rather than just have it be a memory...just a thought :)

 

Ok, in spite of my greedy little grabby hands need for more overall even though this one has little to no actual on page sex and moderate steam...come on it's only 20ish pages it's still a lot of fun to read... it's a short, sweet, fun, essentially angst free story with a lovely HEA that'll leave you smiling and like me probably wanting more...but in the best possible way.

Review: The Dream Thieves (The Raven Cycle #2) by Maggie Stiefvater
The Dream Thieves - Maggie Stiefvater

 

The second installment in the all-new series from the masterful, #1 NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author Maggie Stiefvater!

 

Now that the ley lines around Cabeswater have been woken, nothing for Ronan, Gansey, Blue, and Adam will be the same. Ronan, for one, is falling more and more deeply into his dreams, and his dreams are intruding more and more into waking life. Meanwhile, some very sinister people are looking for some of the same pieces of the Cabeswater puzzle that Gansey is after…

 

 

 

I enjoyed this book much more than the last and I can see why these books get such a hype.

I really started likening the Raven Boys and of course Blue, but I think what I liked most was the friendship that was being build.

There was a lot happening in this book and the I wont say much to not spoil it but I really liked the overall plot and twist that happened.

I really liked the whole Mr. Grey part it was mysterious and fun to follow.

Blue, really came into her own this book and I loved that she just became so much more confident not only in her own skin and family but also around our boys.

The Raven boys. I can’t seem to pick a favorite, they all are unique and fun in their own way.

Overall I really enjoyed this book and looking forward to the next.

I had the paperback and the audio and must say the audio was fantastic to listen to. I absolutely loved it.

I rate this book 4 ★

Book Review for Trapping Wasp by Harley Stone
 
 
 
 
 
Title: Trapping Wasp
Series: The Dead Presidents MC Series #3
Author: Harley Stone
Genre: MC Romance
Release Date: August 13, 2018
Reviewed by Angels With Attitude Book Reviews
Arc copy provided for honest review
 
 
 
 
 
 

18+ for language and sexual situations...  Andrew “Wasp” Marshall, VP of the Dead Presidents MC, rides life like it’s his bike, at full speed with no real destination. But when he sets his sights on an irresistible new bartender with a comical little kid, Wasp will have to decide if he’s willing to give up his carefree lifestyle and buckle down to become the man she needs. 
 
Carly Cooper is a survivor. When an old friend turns from protective to possessive she packs up her five-year-old son and flees to Seattle, leaving everything and everyone she knows behind. Carly has neither time nor energy for Wasp’s advances, despite his panty-dropping smile and made-for-sin body. 
 
As things between Wasp and Carly heat up, Carly’s past catches up to her and she must decide whether to trust Wasp and the Dead Presidents, or to pack up and run again.
 
 
 
Let's start off by saying that this was a new author for us and we really enjoyed our first read by them.
I really enjoyed the story and its characters and I have to say what I loved most about the story is that the characters had me laughing through the entire story.For me this was a pretty tame MC romance read that mostly concentrated on the love story added with a bit of mystery.I loved what the club stood for and how they supported ex soldiers.
 
I really enjoyed all the characters but, Trent brought me tons of smiles throughout the entire story and I loved that he was a lot of fun and witty.I also loved that he was such a handful  and that just made him more love-able as you never new what would be coming out of his mouth next.
 
Favorite character for me was Wasp he made me laugh and I loved how he was patient ,kind caring protective and willing to step out of his comfort zone for once to try and win the girl who stole his heart. I love that no matter what from the very beginning he treated Carly and Trent as a package deal and that he loved every minute falling in love with both of them.I also loved that Wasp actually let us get to know the real him and what was beneath that armor of the dark and dangerous playboy.
 
I loved Carly as well as she was easy to love right from the start.Both Carly and Trent suffered from incredible losses but , somehow she found the determination to go on and create a life for herself and her child while always looking over her shoulder for the next tragedy to happen hoping it wasn't her own family.
 
I am looking forward to getting caught up on this series and getting to know more about the other characters and their old ladies.
 
We loved it !
 
Recommend read to all!

Review! Snowbound (Secret Heart Ink #1) Deborah Cooke!
Snowbound - Deborah Cooke

 

 

Flatiron Five has a new tattoo shop—run by the enigmatic and legendary tattoo artist Chynna. When the moon is full, Chynna creates one tattoo to set two hearts afire and gives it away, with the goal of making romantic dreams come true. Who will be next?

 

Olivia trusts in here-and-now...
Olivia doesn’t believe in magic or everlasting love—she’s a scientist, after all—but winning a tattoo from Chynna convinces her to take a chance. She’s always admired her best friend Lexi’s big brother Spencer, maybe because opposites attract. What would it be like to seduce him? Would it end her fascination with him? With a little help from her friends and a blindfold, Liv decides to find out. The bonus is that Spencer will never know his secret lover was her…

 

Spencer believes in forever.
But Spencer guesses the truth almost right away. He’s good with having Olivia want him—having her alone in his cabin is the perfect chance to teach her to trust sensation and him. A blizzard interferes with Olivia’s plan, giving Spencer more time to work his own persuasive magic. He knows a night or two will only be the beginning of what he wants to last forever. Can he convince Olivia to give love a try, or will she leave him forever as soon as the snow melts?

 

 

The first book in the “Flatiron Five” spin off is a delightful contemporary romance full of passion and magical charm.

 

The characters are strong and easily connected to, drawing readers in and holding them hostage with their story. The romance is sweet but has a major obstacle, Olivia doesn’t believe in love but she does believe in passion and she’s wanted Spencer forever so with a little help she decides to engage in a one night stand which is one hot night with lots of sizzling chemistry and heated passion. Spencer want more than one night and the readers are held captivated by the suspense and the hope that Olivia will reach for that happily ever after that readers long for. The plot is fast paced and flows smoothly from start to finish with beginning adding a magical element to the story that adds a little something extra to this enchanting romance.

 

This is the first contemporary romance that I have read by Deborah Cooke and I have to wonder –what was I thinking! I am certainly intrigued with the “Flatiron Five” series and the “Secret Heart Ink” series so I have added them all to my TBR pile.

Recent Release Review! Later Gator (Southern Fried Sass #1 / Love Spells) Julia Mills!
Later Gator - Julia Mills

 

 

Welcome to Hairy Wart! Home of the SOUTHERN FRIED SASS DETECTIVE AGENCY and the DRAGONETTES - proof that it's not the size of the scales but the SASS in the flames that makes the Guardsma...ahem, I mean, Guardswoman. Where the Tofu is always Southern Fried and the Soul Food is vegetarian, 'cause it just wouldn't be right to eat your neighbors.

 

When the mood strikes and the need for change is too strong to ignore, most people move to the big city or the mountains, heck, some even head to the beach.
Not me. No way. That would be way too easy. No L.A., Aspen, or Miami for this Witch.

 

Hairy Wart, LA, is where I landed.

Not only is it the Southern Fried Tofu capital of the world, but this blink-and-you-miss-it ‘burg with a population of Ninety-nine-point-five, (Do not ask.) and a mayor who happens to be a seven-foot Pink Bunny when the mood strikes, just might be the home of the craftiest chicken-napping, rock-wielding crazy killer I've ever come up against.

 

To say I have bitten off more than I can chew is like saying the Grand Canyon is a pothole. However, I absolutely refuse to admit defeat. Especially not with Sherriff Sexy Pants dogging my every step and making me all hot and bothered. Whoever said a Gator Shifter can’t make a couple yards of denim really, really happy they became a pair of Wranglers never met Beauregard St. Croix. He takes a bite outta crime in an up close and personal kinda way that I’m liking a little more every day.

 

With a mighty swish of my wand and my sisters by my side, I have made it my mission to rid Hairy Wart of all things nefarious and make the streets safe for everybody – scaled, furry, feathered, or otherwise. No case too small, no lawbreaker too evil. We’re here to help!

 

Bubble, bubble, are you in trouble? Not to worry, we'll be there on the double. No need to fear. No need to fret. We're Southern Fried Sass, Baby. We'll save the day, and my friends, you should take that bet.

 

 


“Later Gator” is a sassy, spirited read with funtabulous characters that has readers chuckling as they get to know them.

 

The romance in the story sizzles with lots of chemistry as the couple fight their attraction with lots of snarky comments but the relationship can’t be denied when it is this full of heated passion and sass. The fast paced plot keeps readers on their toes even while it keeps them in stitches as three witch sisters, dragonettes, and gator shifters take on a banished witch and try to save the day.

 

I have to say that I quite enjoyed my visit to Hairy Wart, LA with its fascinating characters, the quirky town, unusual types of shifters and the “Southern Fried Sass” that went along with it so I am definitely looking forward to reading the next book in the series.

Mom of two rockin' girls, Reader of everything, Author of The Dragon Guards series and many more surprises to come!

 

I am a sarcastic,sometimes foul-mouthed, not afraid to drink a beer, always southern woman with 2 of the most amazing teenage daughters,
a menagerie of animals and a voracious appetite for reading who recently decided to write the storied running through her brain. I read my first book, Dr Suess' Cat in The Hat by myself at 4 and was hooked.


I believe a good book along with shoes, makeup and purses will never let a girl down and that all heroes of all the books I have ever read or will ever write pale in comparison to my daddy! I am a sucker for a happy ending and love some hot sweaty sex with a healthy dose of romance.


I am still working on my story but believe it will contain all of the above with as much SPICE as I can work into it. CHEERS!
