Hold me
Thank You For Holding (On Hold Book 2) - Julia Kent,Elisa Reed

This is the 2nd book in the On Hold series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader enjoyment and understanding, I recommend reading this series in order.

 

Ryan has been in love with Carrie, since the first day they worked together.  She was dating someone else, so he waited patiently for his chance.  Now that it is here - he is afraid she will turn him down.

 

Carrie has been disgusted with her life lately.  First, her ex dumps her over the phone.  Then, she has to attend her best friends wedding, where her ex will be there with his new man.  Can she pretend her way out of this?

 

This book felt a little whiny.  I loved the characters.  I enjoyed the humor, heat, and pace of the story.  I was just very frustrated that the characters let so many things come before the love they supposedly have for one another.  Just my opinion.  I enjoyed the book overall.  I give this story a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

A holiday read.
Bad Mother's Diary - Suzy K Quinn

This is not a book I would normally have chosen but our book group wanted it for this month, so I thought I'd give it a go. It was an easy enough read, although rather predictable and the ending was a bit rushed. It felt like a cross between Sophie Kinsella (Shopaholic books) and Helen Fielding (Bridget Jones).

I cringed at the appearance of the author half way through, congratulating us for getting this far, I hope this does not become an author trend.

 

Juliette Duffy and Nick Spencer have a young baby and are planning to make it official and get married. They are living in London in Nick's mother's flat. Helen is the mother-in-law from hell, appearing almost daily, unannounced, complaining about anything and everything. I'm not keen on books that announce on the front cover that they are hilarious, as I rarely laugh in books, but some of the best moments were Juliette's come-backs to Helen.

 

Juliette and Nick's baby, Daisy is adorable but doesn't sleep well. Juliette is constantly exhausted, which will ring true to many mothers. Just getting out, without smears and marks on her clothes, is a major achievement. The issue with weight and dieting was a bit tedious, and very Bridget Jones's Diary, ditto the diary format, which felt rather too familiar.

Juliette bravely decides to run the London Winter Marathon, which was a nice touch. Then there was Alex, a childhood friend from a wealthy background, hmmm, way too predictable, but I won't add any spoilers.

 

By the way, I live in Dubai and there is no shortage of bikinis available - not just burkinis and Juliette supposedly discovered.

Shelby Mansfield is single, and prefers it that way. Or so she thought until Nash Bennett almost killed her. 

Well, not really, but Shelby doesn’t care. Ever since she met Nash by accident, her life is rolling down hill, fast. Her latest string of bad luck is sucking the life out of her, and Nash won’t go away. 

Shelby thought life was grand, she has a great job and her trusty B.O.B, and a medling best friend, but she never realized what she was missing until Nash. 

Nash is an EMT with the Charleston Fire Department and feels so bad about almost killing Shelby, though he knows that’s an overstatement. Then a real accident brings them closer together and he can’t seem to stay away from her. Something about her draws her to him and he won’t stop until he has her underneath him. 

Will Nash steal her heart away from B.O.B? Or will he breach her trust and send her running back to her trusty sidekick? Will Shelby give her heart away and still hang onto her independence? 

Or will disaster strike before she can make up her fickle mind?

Genre: Romantic Comedy/Suspense

 Cover by Makeready Designs

Add the book to Goodreads

Synopsis:

Everybody dreams of a Hawaiian Vacation… They sell you on the drinks with little umbrella’s, dolphin watching, and long walks on the beach. Which probably happens, if you’re that lucky schmuck living out your dream with your destination wedding, but if you’re a fish out of water PI like me, there’s no time for relaxing because trouble is never far behind. Instead of cocktails, I ended up dealing with the seedy underbelly of The Big Island. And, I didn’t see one damn dolphin while undercover on a boat which was spilling over with drug dealers, Kingpins, and Pedophiles. Elin and Elena think Cade's family are the coolest people outside of Snapchat, but it’s hard to meet the parents when your boyfriend is in his late thirties and has never had a serious relationship. I’d never missed my girls so much in my life, but Amy May, Bea, and Carmen are all dealing with issues of their own, and can’t come to my rescue. The only thing that may help me with this “vacation” is if I could get Lei’d with Cupcakes. WARNING: THIS BOOK CONTAINS FOUL LANGUAGE, SEX, SOME VIOLENCE, AND SHENANIGANS. IF NONE OF THAT BOTHERS YOU, GRAB A CUPCAKE AND READ ON!   lei Lei'd teaser

  EXCERPT: When it was our turn to disembark, Cade pulled out suitcases down from the overhead compartment, and we started off the plane. First Cade, with his well-worn leather backpack slung over one shoulder and a ratty Army green duffel in his hand. Then Elin and Elena, with their Harry Potter and Star Wars rolling bags, and finally, me, trailing behind with my new hard case roller, wondering why I’d been in such a hurry to land when all I wanted to do in that moment was run back to the plane. With every step closer to the arrival area, my stomach grew tight and my buzz started to fade. By the time we stepped out of the corridor into the open space, filled with happy sounds and tons of people, I was ready to upchuck the six tiny bottles of vodka that had seemed like such a good idea in flight. I looked up in time to see a tall woman hugging Cade tightly, while a handsome, older version of Cade was placing lei’s around the twins’ necks. I plastered a smile on my face and as I joined the group, all eyes turned to me. Cade’s mother’s face lit up, as she looked to him and said, “Nice job, Hiapo, she’s got great hips.”
