My life had been a series of unfortunate events:
Some of them out of my control, some of them entirely my fault.
I was only weeks away from being able to take my daughter and 
finally be free from the past that had imprisoned us.
And then Tamsin Lucas showed up on my doorstep,
looking every inch the innocent angel yet begging to be ruined.
I told myself I could live not knowing her secrets or the reason for her hurt.
And I swore I could survive never touching her again.
Until I needed her to homeschool my daughter.
Now, I’m fighting to rein in my desire for the woman who’s always been perfect
and protect her from those who are out to destroy me.
Tammy was too good to want someone like me.
But what if I was too bad to care to stay away?
 
Tamsin
 
Making the right choice was the slogan for my life and the motto for my soul,
until all the right decisions led to a very wrong result.
In the moment when life felt like a catastrophe, 
I ran to him. Nick Frost. 
The callous man who was colder than the mountain 
and possessed more secrets than it did snowflakes.
For one night, I traded sense for sensibility 
and my well-kept order for his comfortable chaos.
I thought one night and one wrong choice would be enough 
until he became my boss and wrong began to look a lot like right.
With every day that passes, I learn there’s more to his story than the world knows
and more to the unquenchable desire being written between us.
Nick was too bad to want someone like me.
But what if what we had was too good to keep me away?


 
Let's start off by saying this is a first time author for us and we really enjoyed our first read by them, but most of all we loved how the author decided to do a multiple Epilogue ending and it was the best treat ever and made the ending even more perfect.
 
We loved the story from beginning to end.The story had a great cast of character's that you were drawn to immediately as well as them being fun and oh so love-able.It's been a while that a have read a sports romance themed book and it was really a nice treat to break the ice as they say and read something out of my comfort zone and this story did the trick because I can't wait to read the rest of the series. I really am loving this author's style of writing.
 
We loved Priss she was just pure sunshine a mother to all,love-able, a great friend,smart ,sexy with that sexy librarian vibe lol, just one of those hometown girls who would give the shirt off her back for someone in need.I also loved that she was a little bit nerdy as it just made her more attractive.
 
Priss favorite quote - "He was so painfully beautiful. Unique. Just like a snowflake."
 
Nick Frost- What can I say other than we really loved the his gruffness,his dirty and crude talk,his straightforwardness,his playboy looks,we loved his vulnerability but , most of all we loved how he loved his daughter with such fierceness that he was willing to make such drastic life changes to keep her safe and protected.
 
Favorite quote - "Nick Frost was a Casanova on ice—shaken, not stirred."
 
 
We loved the chemistry that Priss and Nick had between them as it was intense and hot as he** !
There was tons of super sexy and hot romance scenes ."Can you say fanning myself!"
 
We loved this cast of character's they all we a lot of fun but, I have to say that Priss's girlfriends were the bomb! "We loved them!"
 
I loved how they kept asking Priss if she got frosted yet? It made me laugh time and time again.
 
Overall we loved the plot as it had a serious undertone,was filled with tons of drama,more than a few surprises happen, super hot sex scenes in and out of bed but, most of all we just like how the story unfolded and kept us glued to the pages to the very end. 
 
I love when you connect with the character's that you are reading about and it was able with this cast of character's as they made it easy because they were just so much fun.The story made me laugh and cry and it was heart felt and we just loved it !
 
Recommend read to all!
 
Looking forward to the rest of the series.

Dark tale, building a new series. I found it intriguing.
Drop a Gear and Disappear (Kings of Vengeance MC #1) - Winter Travers

Quinn was looking for a brotherhood to belong to and found something more dangerous. This was a dark story with some steamy scenes, violence, and trust leading to the right kind of bond. I enjoyed the book as I liked the connection between Quinn and Kimber, and the trust between Quinn and his friends as they rescue Kimber. Kimber's strength of will and mind to survive made her a great heroine. I look forward to more in this series.

I received an ARC through Enticing Journey Book Promotions, and this is my unsolicited review.

Strong Second Installment
The Winter Crown: A Novel of Eleanor of Aquitaine - Elizabeth Chadwick

Chadwick's second volume of her series about Eleanor of Aquitaine is a good strong volume.  It chronicles the breakdown of her marriage to Henry II as well as the start of the major family in fighting between Mama Bear and her cubs against Papa Bear.

 

At some points, Eleanor is a bit more sinned against than sinning, but Chadwick's take on history is rather plausible.  It is particularly fun watching Maud and Eleanor interact.  Chadwick does an excellent job showcasing how frustrating and annoying it must have been for a woman like Eleanor to be constantly shoved to the side. 

 

There is also a happy romance to balance the failing of marriage.

 

Totally enjoyable read.

Snakes and Ladders Roll 2

This series has been a very interesting alternate history.   What if the dinosaurs hadn't gone extinct?

Unfortunately, I can't the image of Sleestacks out my head when imagining the Yilane.

Review: The Secret Child (D. I. Amy Winter #2) by Caroline Mitchell
The Secret Child - Caroline Mitchell

Publisher: Thomas & Mercer (7th March 2019)

 

ISBN: 978-1503905023

 

Source: Netgalley 

 

Rating: 5*

 

Synopsis: 

 

Four-year-old Ellen is snatched by a stranger in the dead of night. Her devastated mother, Nicole, receives four identical phials and a threatening note in a familiar scrawl that chills her to the bone. But she always knew this would happen. She’s been expecting it for years.

 

According to the note, one of the phials is poisoned. Nicole is given a deadly challenge: if she drinks one, the sadistic kidnapper will notify the police of Ellen’s location. The sender claims to be Luka Volkov but Luka is supposed to be dead, killed long ago in a fire that haunts all those involved.

 

DI Amy Winter is still reeling from the discovery that she is the daughter of a serial killer, and her childhood trauma only makes her more determined to bring Ellen home. When another child is taken, Amy finds herself in a race against time. To rescue the children, must she seek help from the one person she wants to forget?

 

Review:

In the first novel in the D.I. Amy Winter series, Amy learns that she has a notorious serial killer for a mother. If you've not yet read Truth and Lies I urge you to pick up a copy. Although The Secret Child reads well as a stand alone, there are references to events that happened in first book, (though they are well explained) plus it's the perfect introduction to the character! 

 

In this second outing for Amy, we are plunged into tension immediately as the kidnapper strikes, spiriting little Ellen away. I was on the edge of my seat straight away, not knowing what was about to happen. Caroline Mitchell is fantastic at conjuring up an air of menace and keeping it palpable throughout, whilst simultaneously juggling several other interwoven storylines.  Her finger never wavering off the pulse for a second as she seamlessly ties all the invisible ends together in one fell swoop that just made me gasp and shout 'Nooooo!' very loudly at my kindle! I will never tire of reading Caroline's books because they are simply unputdownable and I can never forsee what is going to happen. 

 

Special thanks to Caroline Mitchell, Thomas & Mercer for providing a review copy via Netgalley. This is my unbiased review.
