ARC REVIEW Whiskey Undone by Carrie Ann Ryan

Whiskey Undone (Whiskey and Lies, #3)

Whiskey and Lies #3, YAY!!! Ainsley and Loch finally! This can be read as a standalone as with most of her Contemporary Romance. Loch and Ainsley have been best friends for over ten years, she's helped take care of Loch's daughter when Misty's mother abandoned her and she has always been there content to be his best friend always hoping she could be more. Loch has kept Ainsley in the friend zone because he always feared he never deserved a happy ending, always assuming that sex would ruin everything and she'd not only leave him but Misty too. But Loch can't stand the thought of her with anyone else and one night changes their entire relationship the night they give in to their desire. Unfortunately sex fries their brains, especially Loch's, and they became unable to communicate with each other and they start fighting. It wasn't the only life changing event to happen that night a dead body was discovered behind Loch's gym and now his past is coming back to get  him. 

Overall, another outstanding book by Carrie Ann Ryan. I love the Collins and the town of Whiskey. The book had a great epilogue, very nice HEA wrap up for the family. Third person perspective that switches between Ainsley and Loch so you do learn what Loch's deal is and understand where he's coming from. This is a very emotional story it does deal mostly with Ainsley and Loch's relationship and Loch's emotional issues. The external conflict is a doozie it was really intense there at the end, wow. As sad as I am to see this series end I am anxious for the upcoming series Ryan has planned.

Crave the Heat by Marnee Blake
Crave the Heat - Marnee Blake

***ARC provided by publisher through NetGalley***

Dak Parrish has family issues. That's what he'd jumped at the opportunity to come back to Oregon to fight fires—his father, mother and little brother live on the reservation nearby. While his mother appears not to want to have anything to do with him, his father makes an impromptu visit, blackmailing Dak into helping an arsonist investigator look into suspicious fires...A prickly female investigator that quickly gets under Dak's skin...


Like its predecessor this story also didn't bring much to the table. The characters were bland (although the heroine was slightly too bitchy for my taste), the suspense had its moments, but the final reveal (without much motive behind it, or a worthy resolution) left everything to be desired, the pacing was plodding...

Another puffed-rice-cake equivalent.

Release Day Review! Don't Love a Liar (Dark Sins #2) Cynthia Eden!

 

 

I’ve been a criminal, a thief, and a killer. I’ve been the hero who rushes in to save the day. I’ve been the corporate CEO who runs the world. I’ve been everything.

I’ve been nothing.

 

That’s my talent. I’m a chameleon, I can become anyone, and I can do anything. I do whatever it takes to get the job done.

 

This time, she’s the job. I’m supposed to get close to her. I’m supposed to find out everything she knows about a killer who is turning Louisiana red with blood. Only Kennedy Clarke isn’t what I expect. Not the rich party girl. She’s scared, and lost, and she’s a victim in this tangled web. She wants someone to rely on. Someone who will help her when the whole world falls in flames around her.

 

She thinks I’m that guy. She’s wrong. I’m the one working against her even as I swear to protect her.

 

She needs to be careful. She needs to stop making me want her so much. Because the longer I’m with her, I’m not so sure what’s right and what’s wrong any longer.

 

Be careful, Kennedy. DON’T LOVE A LIAR.

 

Ready for a dark and dangerous romantic suspense? Be careful who you trust, and remember that no one is really who you think…DON’T LOVE A LIAR.

 

 

He’s been a criminal, a thief, and a killer. He’s the hero who rushes in to save to day and he does whatever it takes to save the day. Don’t Love a Liar ignites passions but also lots of emotions from readers as they try to decide whether Kennedy should trust this man, love this man or kick him to the curb. The characters are strong, vivid and readers easily connect to them as they try to decide who to trust. The romance between these two sizzle with lots of chemistry and has sparks flying as the pages heat up but this relationship has a big obstacle – Kennedy is a suspect and Remy is there to get the truth. Lots of emotional turmoil adds depth to these characters bringing them to vibrant life and ensuring that readers are ensnared by their story.

 

The fast paced and smooth flowing plot keeps readers biting their nails in anticipation of what will happen next as danger comes calling and Kennedy becomes caught in a tangled web of secrets and lies. Surprising twists ensure that readers can’t be sure of the just who is behind the killings until the very end. Once again, the author brings her story to life with well written words that paint brilliant images that make it easy for the reader to imagine and really get a feel for the characters and their emotions in this stirring romantic suspense.

Review Tour - Fireworks

 

Fireworks

by Sarina Bowen

 

Skye Copeland is on paid leave from her broadcasting job after accidentally drawing a wiener on the traffic map.

 

Let that sink in. Like it’s her fault the traffic pattern created a perfect schlong? 

 

Skye isn’t laughing. She needs this job. And that’s the only reason she’s willing to chase down a story in her least favorite place—that hell on earth known as Vermont.

 

A quick trip. In and out. Much like - never mind. She can sneak into the town that once tried to break her, get the story and slide back into the good graces of her producer. Easy peasy.

 

But things go sideways the moment she steps over the county line. Her stepsister is running from a violent drug dealer. And the cop on the case is none other than Benito Rossi, the man who broke Skye’s teenage heart.

 

His dark brown eyes still tear her apart. And even as she steels herself to finally tell him off after twelve years, the old fireworks are still there.

 

Things are about to go boom.

Fireworks (True North, #6)Fireworks by Sarina Bowen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book #6, in the True North series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader understanding of the series, and too avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this compelling series in order.

Skye returns to the place she hates the most to help out the sister she always wanted. When she gets there, tables have turned. There is now danger if she pushes too far in finding her sister. Who can she turn to?

Benito AKA "Ben" is a blast from the past, who has always had a thing for Skye. She was the one that got away, and he has no intentions of letting that happen again. He also has to find her sister and solve his case.

While this author is a definite auto purchase, she always brings the goods to the table. In this story, we get a second chance romance with such heart and heat that every page is a sizzling delight! I loved the banter, and was eagerly turning each page to get to the next.
