Jemima Jane “JJ” Ericson has been in love with Ethan for as long as she could remember. She knew that she could never have him that way which was why she remained his best friend. Though things will change when their ex’s start to cause trouble.
Ethan Weston lived his life for his daughter and when that livelihood was being threatened he knew to act quickly. He will find the solution with his best friend, though things will get quickly complicated when he starts to notice JJ as a woman.
Some Girls Lie is the fourth book to the series Outback Heat by Amy Andrews. Out of all the books I would have to say that this one was my favorite. I really liked JJ and Ethan’s story.
Ethan’s character was the work hard, driven man who was devoted to his daughter. You couldn’t fault that about his character. Though what you could find fault with the man was that he could not see who would be good for him. Ethan kept fighting his attraction to JJ once they slept together which was because he didn’t believe in love any more. Then there is JJ’s character. She was again a hard worker and loyal friend. She always tried to take the high road and protect those she loved. I liked that she was finally able to be with Ethan even if it was not on a permanent basis. Although there is one part in the book that will make you want to hit Ethan really hard and cheer JJ who finally expressed her feelings. What surprised me about JJ was her back story which had been about domestic abuse from her ex-husband. Well he will be back in the picture and up to no good.
Delia (Ethan’s ex and Connie’s mother) was a piece of work and she was making life difficult, which made it hard to like her. Things will change though and at last Delia will figure out what truly needs to change, her, otherwise she was going to loose her daughter forever.
Marcus Weston was a paramedic and beloved coach of the football team for young kids. He was happy with his life then a brush fire will change everything for Marcus when one of his players will die in the fire.
Juanita Slattery was moving to a small town for a couple months to work. She never expected to find her one night stand in the town or that he was a man who needed therapy. Juanita will know to stay away but with Marcus she will not be able to help herself.
Some Guys Need a Lot of Lovin’ is the third book to the series Outback Heat by Amy Andrews. I liked this book. This felt different than the others, it had a more emotional pull with how Marcus was feeling.
Juanita’s character was a strong driven woman who was very independent. I liked that she was like that but also that she was a woman to make her own decisions. She didn’t let the man dictate what she needed to do. Though I did like Marcus’s take charge attitude when he was with Juanita, although Juanita had that same take charge attitude. Marcus’s character was a happy go lucky guy and someone who was a bit of a player. Though it was interesting to read how it all changed with him. I thought Amy Andrews did a really good job writing about Marcus’s PTSD. I could believe that his character had it. The ending was heartbreaking but it was what was needed for Marcus.
I am reading the fourth book next. I am looking forward to Ethan’s and JJ’s story.
Selena Durrum was back in her hometown to give a speech. She was nervous, but not because of the speech. It was because she would see Jarrod who had been the love of her life. When she sees him for the first time in fifteen years she knew that there was the fire and love they shared but Selena did not want to be trapped.
Jarrod Weston was a firefighter and loved what he did. Though Jarrod was never complete since Selena had left him. With Selena back only for a couple of days Jarrod knew not to get reattached but it will be hard as he still loved her.
Some Girls Don’t is the second book to the series Outback Heat by Amy Andrews. I liked this novel. It was very fast paced and entertaining to read.
Selena’s character is a driven career woman, it was all she wanted. I liked that about Selena but that meant she had distance herself from others especially in the relationship department. I wanted her to realize that keeping a hold on Jarrod didn’t weaken her. She had lived her life and to be with him would truly make her happy, she could have it all if she gave it a chance. Jarrod’s character was also a driven man and I liked that he was stubborn which could be a problem. Although when he was around Selena he turned back into a seventeen year old who had been in love with her.
What made this very fast paced was the amount of sex that was in the book. It is explosive between Selena and Jarrod. They are full of fire that is great for chemistry but they tend to butt heads together and say things before thinking. Though even with all the bumps in the road I was definitely cheering for Selena and Jarrod being together.
Tamara was spending New Years Eve alone at a friends cabin as she didn’t want to make a mistake and sleep with a guy which she had no future with. Tamara will be surprised when Luke, Georgia’s little brother, comes to the cabin. Instantly Tamara will be tempted and will fight hard to keep away from Luke.
Luke was home after nine months and just wanted to relax. He will be surprised to find someone else at his parents home, though surprise will quickly turn to lust when he sees Tamara. Luke will do his best to seduce Tamara and to let her know he was looking for more than one night.
‘Tis the Season to Be Kissed is a novella by Amy Andrews. This is a quick and steamy book which was fun to read.
I thought that Luke was sweet. Yes he wanted to have sex with Tamara but he was also wanting more. He was also making their night fun. He had that sense of humor you wanted in a guy and even though he was five years younger than Tamara you knew that he was more mature than others his age. I liked Tamara’s character. She was having a pity party but she wasn’t really depressed. She just wanted more out of life, especially her love life. I liked how she let herself have fun and trusted that this time the guy would be leading to more.
Lacey Weston wanted to come home from college but her stubborn brothers would not budge. They wanted to make sure she finished college. Lacey will do what she had to which meant fake a pregnancy to stay in her hometown. She will be surprised that the man she lusted after would volunteer to be the fake father of her fake baby.
Cooper Grainger was an ex cop turned mechanic and he had it bad for his best friends sister. They had slept together once and since then Cooper would help her but tried to avoid her as temptation was too great. Then he will go above and beyond and help Lacey out with her fake pregnancy.
Some Girls Do is the first book to the series Outback Heat by Amy Andrews. Well this is another free book from amazon and I found it very entertaining. It wasn’t mind blowing but it was a good story with some sizzle.
The concept was that Lacey didn’t want to go back to school and her brothers were being stubborn, and making her feel guilty about wanting to leave. I thought the brothers were pushy but they were trying to keep the promise they made to their mother on her deathbed. They were unfair with Lacey and she at times felt a little too flighty in the beginning but as you get to know her character she is still a kid that had a tragedy happen to her and she never had a chance to really grieve. I did like that she was able to be herself when she was with Coop. So I liked Coop’s character. He was a good man, someone who was reliable and talented mechanic. I liked him with Lacey though the age gap was pretty big with thirteen years. Well they do make it work and the attraction between them doesn’t hurt.
If I can get the other three books, which are about the Weston brothers, I would be interested in reading about them.
Samuel “Tuck” Tucker was seen as a jock foremost but what most did not see was that he had a brain. Cassie was the girl who thought him stupid and he was having fun making her think otherwise but the joke will be up and he will find that the more he spends with her the more he wants her.
Cassie Barclay was genius smart, she wasn’t the normal girl next door. She will brush off Tuck and didn’t want to give him a moment of her time because he was a jock. The problem was she was attracted to him.
Girl Least Likely To Marry by Amy Andrews is the second book to Wedding Season series by four different authors. I liked this book, it was cute and a fast paced. Its a Harlequin romance, the first one was as well, so they tend to be shorter than other novels. I felt that this story flowed a little more than the first. I think it was because I have know gotten to know the friends a little better. It didn’t hurt that there were no hurt feelings that started with these two characters. There was a little annoyance with each other, really on Cassie’s side, but that quickly evaporated especially when they started to sleep with each other.
I honestly liked Cassie’s character as she was a genius, she just didn’t have much at experience with living life. It was kind of humorous when she started to act normal with feelings at the end. It was something she had never felt before. Tuck was kind of a player but all in good fun. I didn’t like he took Cassie on a dance with a wager but I warmed up to his character. He was fun loving and was smart which worked well for Cassie. I liked them together and was cheering for them to find that happy ending.
I am reading the third book, Maid of Dishonor, next which is with Gina.
