Slow pace
The Guardian: A Standalone Romance Novel... The Guardian: A Standalone Romance Novel - Pamela Ann

The story started out with a good pace and what I thought would be an interesting and fun storyline, then it went off the rails. There is cheating in this tale and I know that some find it offensive. While I don't agree with cheating - ever - I can read about it and it has nothing to do with my rating on this one. What did affect my rating was the agonizingly slow pace and the constant back and forth and miscommunication between Jared and Gisele. It became tedious and after awhile it was no surprise when they were on the outs once again. The book is quite long and eventually, I just didn't care if this couple worked it out or not. There were also several extraneous circumstances - I say extraneous because they were just dropped without resolution or explanation. I did finish the book, mainly because I can't start a book and not finish, but this one was way too easy to set aside and finishing began to feel like a chore about halfway through.

Review: Down Home Cowboy (Copper Ridge #8) by Maisey Yates
Down Home Cowboy: A Western Romance Novel (Copper Ridge) - Maisey Yates

 

 

 

 

This Texas cowboy has come home to Copper Ridge to put down roots…but will he risk his heart again?

Asked where he'd be at this point in life, Cain Donnelly would have said anywhere but Copper Ridge, Oregon, living with his estranged brothers. But since his wife abandoned them, both he and his daughter, Violet, are in need of a fresh start, so he's back to claim his share of the family ranch. Local baker Alison Davis is a delicious temptation, but she's also his daughter's mentor and new boss. That makes her off-limits…until she offers a no-strings deal that no red-blooded cowboy could resist.

Alison has worked tirelessly to rebuild her life, and she won't jeopardize her hard-won independence. Especially if it also complicates Cain's relationship with Violet. But with Cain offering a love she never thought was possible, Alison has to find the courage to let her past go…or watch her future ride away for good.

 

 

 

3 ½ ★

 

This is the 8th book in the Copper Ridge series but it can be easily read as a standalone. I have not read any of the previous books and did not feel like I missed something. Which is always good. Most know, that I enjoy Cowboy books among Rockstar and Hockey books , when it comes to romance books, so it was really way to like this book. This was the first book I read by Maisey Yates but I plan on reading more of her books. I liked the writing style it had a nice flow to it and was easy to follow and get lost in. I did enjoy the story and the characters for the most part, some parts were a bit annoying but nothing major that made me want to stop reading. I l liked the back story of the characters and it made us really see why they are the way they are. While most of the story was easy to predict it still was very enjoyable to read. I enjoyed all the side characters as well even if I did not know that from the precious books. I thought they had just the right amount of page-time not too much or little. Overall. Great read and looking forward to read more by this author.

I rate it 3 ½ ★

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author Maisey Yates lives in rural Oregon with her three children and her husband, whose chiseled jaw and arresting features continue to make her swoon. She feels the epic trek she takes several times a day from her office to her coffee maker is a true example of her pioneer spirit. In 2009, at the age of twenty-three Maisey sold her first book.

Since then it’s been a whirlwind of sexy alpha males and happily ever afters, and she wouldn’t have it any other way. Maisey divides her writing time between dark, passionate category romances set just about everywhere on earth and light sexy contemporary romances set practically in her back yard.

She believes that she clearly has the best job in the world.

Hurts so good
Call to Engage: A Romance Novel (Seal Brotherhood Novel) - Tawny Weber

This is the 2nd book in the Team Poseidon series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader enjoyment and understanding of the series & characters, I recommend reading this fast paced series in order.

 

Elijah has a lot going on at work and in his personal life.  He comes home to rest, and runs smack into his ex.  He may be ready to make major changes in his life.  If only he could decide between the professional and the personal that haunt him.

 

Ava is completely turned upside down to see her ex-husband.  Too many memories just bombard her at the sight of him.  Can she forgive and forget?  It is obvious they still feel something for one another.... and hopefully they won't set anything but themselves on fire with all this heat.

 

Such an incredible series!  This book shows that not only is this series getting hotter, but the author just kicks it up a notch with each story.  I felt for the characters in this book.  I could tell they needed one another.  And...the sparks.... well let's just say you may want to read this on with the fan facing you.  Something for everyone in this story.  I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Undaunted: A Western Romance Novel (Long, Tall Texans)
Undaunted: A Western Romance Novel (Long, Tall Texans) - Diana Palmer Garrett Carlton is a cynic with a knack for making money, but not a lot of heart. Kate Martin is an optimist. Despite the many heartaches her young life has endured, she takes pride in the lessons she's learned. Her heart is big, but her pockets are lacking. When these opposites collide it's life - changing. An accident brings them together, but will it also tear them apart? Undaunted is a story of compassion and forgiveness. It takes a little while to get to the reward but the pathway leading there is worth the bumps and bruises. It's stories like this that have kept me a fan of Ms. Palmer's for years. She entertains, teaches and speaks to the heart.

THE ROMANCE READER'S GUIDE TO LIFE by SHARON PYWELL
The Romance Reader's Guide to Life: A Novel - Sharon Pywell

There's a book within a book here which at first I liked and then because the main story was so good, I started skipping those parts of the book. I loved the story of the siblings and of her dog in the afterlife. This book was sometimes funny, sometimes sad, sometimes scary and sometimes romantic. Very good book.
