"400 First Kisses" by E. L. Todd


My Thoughts....


This new series by this author featuring Bree, Cypress, Amalie, Ace and Blade that will definitely keep your attention with there being so much going on in this romantic emotional dramatic story.  You will have to keep up because the reader can get lost in the story as it unfolds. This was quite a shock for Bree when she finds out that she is married to this guy Cypress who had cheated on her.  Now, you will have to pick up this well written story to see who this all happened. I found this story very well thought out with some well developed amazing characters that will keep you turning the pages to see what was coming next.  Yes, you will see how Bree was cheated on by Cypress and what all he tried to do to make up for all his wrong. I could definitely understand Bree thought pattern as she was trying to deal with all of this situation that she found herself in.  Then next part of the read moves on to the story of Amelia and Ace.  Hopefully, there will be a story coming from all of that situation in the next reads.  Yes, this one will end in a cliffhanger and we will have to get the next part "325 First Fights" to see more of how this story will turn out for each of these interesting characters.


Thank you to the author for the read.

Not your every day romance
A Beautiful Heartbreak (the NYC Series Book 1) - Alora Kate,Alora Kate,Silvia Curry

A Beautiful Heartbreak is not your typical hearts and flowers romance, which was a pleasant surprise for me. The story is well-written and the flow is good. But, the thing that set this one apart is the characters. They are all so interesting - love them or hate them, they're interesting. Most of the story is told from Ki's point of view and I absolutely love her with her quirks and what you see is what you get attitude. We do get some chapters from Prescot's view and I don't want to give too much away, but those chapters are so important to the character development. His flashbacks certainly stir the emotions and pull at your heartstrings. The attraction between this pair is unmistakable, even when they won't admit it and the situations that they find themselves in are, at times, quite funny. While there are questions and some intense situations, I wouldn't necessarily say that it's suspenseful. Things were resolved and questions were answered a bit too quickly for any real build in the suspense level, but that didn't really take away from my enjoyment of the read. Overall, I would say that Alora Kate has given us an outside the box romance with some action, truly great characters, at times laugh out loud dialogue and situations, and a relatively low angst level. I'll be looking forward to whatever is next for this odd mix of people. Oh, and I have to add - Lucas, I seriously want more Lucas!

Irresistible You by Kate Meader $1.99
Irresistible You (The Chicago Rebels Series Book 1) - Kate Meader

Harper Chase has just become the most powerful woman in the NHL after the death of her father Clifford Chase, maverick owner of the Chicago Rebels. But the team is a hot mess—underfunded, overweight, and close to tapping out of the league. Hell-bent on turning the luckless franchise around, Harper won’t let anything stand in her way. Not her gender, not her sisters, and especially not a veteran player with an attitude problem and a smoldering gaze designed to melt her ice-compacted defenses.

Veteran center Remy “Jinx” DuPre is on the downside of a career that’s seen him win big sponsorships, fans’ hearts, and more than a few notches on his stick. Only one goal has eluded him: the Stanley Cup. Sure, he’s been labeled as the unluckiest guy in the league, but with his recent streak of good play, he knows this is his year. So why the hell is he being shunted off to a failing hockey franchise run by a ball-buster in heels? And is she seriously expecting him to lead her band of misfit losers to a coveted spot in the playoffs?

He’d have a better chance of leading Harper on a merry skate to his bed…

Irresistible You (Chicago Rebels #1) by Kate Meader
Irresistible You (The Chicago Rebels Series Book 1) - Kate Meader

Kate Meader’s IRRESISTIBLE YOU is an excellent start to the Chicago Rebels series.  I have been anxiously awaiting reading this book ever since I read IN SKATES TROUBLE (Chicago Rebels #.5) in the HOT ON ICE hockey anthology.  I was not disappointed.  I loved this book. 


Three half-sisters are left a hockey franchise, the Chicago Rebels.  The team is in second to last place. The sisters need to turn the Rebels around.  The first book focuses on the oldest daughter, Harper Chase.  She has been groomed to take over the team and is disappointed when her father’s will stipulated that all three sisters are left the team and have a year to make the playoffs or lose the franchise.  I love the plot.  It was interesting and full of obstacles.  


I already liked Harper’s character in the prequel, IN SKATES TROUBLE.  I was excited to hear her story.  She is a strong character that is meant to run the Rebels.  She is an excellent leader and knows her hockey.  She brings in veteran center Remy “Jinx” DuPre to motivate the team.  Understandably, DuPre was not happy to be traded to a team that was in second to last place.  The two butt heads but can’t deny that they are attracted to each other. Of course, Harper being Remy’s boss complicates matters.  They have great chemistry and are an interesting couple.


I enjoy Kate Meader’s writing style.  The story flowed well.  I was not able to put down the book.  There were some good life lessons in the story.  I loved the scene where Remy and Harper played video games against each other.  IRRESISTIBLE YOU had a great ending.  I look forward to reading middle sister, Isobel Chase’s story in the next book, SO OVER YOU.  I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.
