Review ~ Awesome!
May Day - Scott Bell

Book source ~ ARC. My review is voluntary and honest.

 

Texas Ranger Sam Cable’s boss has sent him to pick up a prisoner out in California and bring her back to Texas to face charges of murdering her cop boyfriend. So he takes off with his pilot, DPS Trooper Marlon Boggs and away they go. Sam hates flying in the tiny Cessna, but Boggs gets him there easy peasy and in one piece. They pick up their prisoner and head for home. And that’s where things get real interesting.

 

If you are looking for a smartass hero with stubborn to spare who can think fast on his feet then look no further. This is the story for you! The first couple of chapters set the scene and then it’s non-stop action until the end. What a ride! After reading book 1 April’s Fool, my fingers were itching to open this one because I just knew I was going to love it. Holy shit, was I right! Scott Bell really knows how to put the reader in the shoes of his characters with just the right amount of description to keep the flow fast-moving and not bogging it down. Awesome characters, an interesting world, ass-puckering action, and a mystery to solve are just what I needed to escape the daily grind. Bravo!

review SPOILER ALERT! 2017-01-08 07:58
To Love a Texas Ranger
To Love a Texas Ranger (Men of Legend Book 1) - Linda Broday

My review contains spoilers and they're mostly my thoughts...

Linda Broday’s To Love a Texas Ranger is a brand new western historical romance and book 1 of her Men of Legend series. I’ve been waiting for this one because I read and loved other western historical series, Bachelors of Battle Creek.

Much like Bachelors of Battle Creek, Men of Legend will focus on a family or a ‘band of brothers’ if you can call them. Even though, the brothers of Bachelors of Battle Creek series weren’t brothers by blood, these Legends brothers certainly are! The first book focuses on Sam Legend, a Texas Ranger, estranged from his family for a while because of his job.

Sam Legend always knew he had a wanderer’s soul and the job of a Texas Ranger suited him just fine. Even though his father, Stoker, is one of the richest Ranchers living out there with miles and miles worth of lands and kettle, Sam knew ranching isn’t his call. His elder brother, Houston, was doing great on that regard. However, things weren’t as it seemed. The bond between the father and the brothers were thin, something deteriorated since their mother’s passing some 17yrs. ago. It’s then their father started drinking, becoming way too focused on acquiring more lands and kettle, making more money than caring for his sons. Everyone knew that grief did it to him but that was no excuse. Sam wanted out and even with his father’s protests he got out as soon as he could. Stoker let him, knowing he can’t stop him. After all, he’s a Legend and they are a stubborn lot.

The Ranger's Texas Proposal
The Ranger's Texas Proposal - Jessica Ke... The Ranger's Texas Proposal - Jessica Keller 3.5 stars

This line isn't a good fit for me; I find some of them too preachy. Overall, I enjoyed The Ranger's Texas Proposal, up until the points where the characters for divine intervention / guidance. My friends don't usually quote Bible verses to justify / promote behaviors, so it is jarring to me when it happens in these books, and that's about the point when I start skimming. I might read more entries in this mini-series because I like the concept, but the execution doesn't always work for me. Inspirational romances work much better for me when they are in a historical setting.

Her Texas Ranger Hero
Her Texas Ranger Hero - Rebecca Winters Her Texas Ranger Hero - Rebecca Winters 2.75 stars

There was a lot of infodumping, but I'm interested in the subject matter so it didn't bother me that much. I thought the romance was very tepid, and the jump from attraction to love was too fast to be believable. There wasn't a lot of chemistry between the protagonists, but I felt that the overall plot was interesting enough to keep me reading.

The Old Ranger by Donald L. Robertson
The Old Ranger: A Texas Ranger Short Story - Donald L. Robertson

The Old Ranger by Donald L. Robertson is a short story about a retired Texas Ranger, Chuck Nielson. He had been the fastest draw west of the Mississippi.

 

The Sunset Kid, who has killed seven men in town and sent word to Chuck that he'd be the eighth.

 

I enjoyed the relationship between Chuck and his wife, Martha. I also enjoy a story with an unexpected twist.

 

I gave it five stars. I put all this author's books on my wishlist.

 

I received a complimentary kindle copy from Amazon. That did not change my opinion for this review.
