Eyes on You

Wolf Henrikson had been waiting on a potential meeting but was stood up. He will be alright with the situation especially when he meets Olivia. He will save her from a bad date and whisk her off, and thing will only heat up from there.

Olivia Foster wanted the date from hell to end but she wasn’t able to be saved by her friend. Then she will get saved by a man who will have her wanting more, even though they had just met. Olivia will follow her feelings which will lead her down a path she never thought to follow.

Eyes on You is a novella in the series Blasphemy by Laura Kaye. Wow is the word when you read this. It was steamy and will make you wish you had Wolf in your life. I really thought Laura Kaye did a great job with this novella.

Wolf’s character was a dream man. He was protective, funny, hot and knew how to work his body and his partners. He was also kind and thoughtful to help someone in need. He was one of the masters of the club and his kink was voyeurism. Now with the kinks that are part of the club voyeurism has to be the least threatening one that would cause any harm to one person. The scenes between Wolf and Olivia are very steamy and written well. I liked Olivia’s character for taking a chance on the wild side. She had once expressed a fantasy to an ex and he laughed at her. That broke her desire to tell others. I liked that with Wolf she felt safe with him to express her desires.

Now I said the author did really well with this novella, but there would be one thing I would change and that would be the length. There is a conflict within the book with her ex-fiance and I kind of wanted more on that story line. I think there was potential to write more which would create more tension. Though for the novella it was well placed and gave enough satisfaction with the solution.

The next story to this series will be coming out this September.

A Buckhorn Baby

Amber Hudson has been dating Noel for a while and she wants more, but she wants Noel to declare himself first. She had tried everything but nothing was working. Then a tragedy strikes a friend and Amber’s world will get turned upside down with a new addition to her family.

Noel Poet did not want children but he wanted Amber. He just wasn’t good at showing what he wanted. When Amber takes guardianship Noel will surprise himself by helping out. He will start to wonder if he could have it all.

A Buckhorn Baby is part of the Buckhorn Brothers series by Lori Foster. I really loved this sweet story. I had been waiting for Amber’s story and I was not disappointed.

Amber’s character is the matchmaker of the group but when her friend dies she becomes guardian of June. Amber quickly falls in love with the little girl but knows that she will lose Noel as he was adamant about not wanting children. I loved how Amber was willing to give up everything for this child. I also liked that there was a different side to Amber. With June she was not her perfect self, she was unorganized and tired. It was realistic for a new mother. Noel’s character was a good man and a firefighter. He was also against children because of his job. It was sweet how he was taken in my June. She hung on to him and did not let go. Noel’s life would be incomplete without Amber and June in his life. The ending to this story was very sweet and very true to this Buckhorn Brothers series.

Now is this series done or are we going to get more? There are still Gabe’s daughters who have not gotten their story. Only time will tell.

Midnight Wrangler

Midnight WranglerRohn Lerner was lonely but the options of women were limited, then a woman from his past shows up. Rohn will do his best to get close to Bonnie but he will notice she was more closed off than she was in high school.

Bonnie Martin was back home after twenty five years to clear out her old house. Bonnie just wanted to do the work and go back to Arizona but then Rohn comes back into her life.

Midnight Wrangler is the second book to the series Midnight Cowboys by Cat Johnson. I liked the book. I thought it was a good addition to the series though it was a little slow at times.

Rohn’s character was a determined and hard working man but personally he was lonely and a little closed off. I liked that he opened up again when Bonnie came back into his life like he was in high school. Cat Johnson wrote in scenes that were with Rohn and Bonnie when they were back in high school, and I liked that it didn’t overwhelm the book with it being all about their past. Now Bonnie’s character was a woman who was still haunted by her past. That left her closed off and lonely. I liked that she was giving herself a chance with Rohn again but her past was always in the background. I will say that I was curious with what had happened. I was guessing through out the book. When the secret was reveled it wasn’t as big as I thought it would’ve been, and I thought it was a little rushed at the end. The secret was something that was going to hurt Rohn and he forgave really quickly. Although I did like that he forgave since it would give them a second chance at being happy.

Wrong Place, Right Time

Wrong Place Right TimeJenny was stressed beyond belief and it was only getting worse, but then she will get a break with a new job. Jenny was hesitant but she was taking a chance and one with a new man in her life. Dev will have Jenny wanting more and will have her believing that she can handle whatever is thrown into her life.

Wrong Place, Right Time is the second book to the series Bourbon Street Boys by Elle Casey. I liked the novel but I have to say not as much as the first story. This novel was definitely much slower to get through. In fact I just wanted to skim some parts of the novel, but I stuck with it and I was happy towards the end.

I guess what threw me was the characters. In the first novel Dev’s character was fun and a little wacky with his sneak attacks but in this one he was much more moody. Now I understand as with his situation with his child is a little sad, but he was a really good dad, just more private with that side of his life. I just wish there was more of Dev from the first book. He does show that side of him but it takes some time. I was also a little annoyed by how he played hot and cold with Jenny. It was like a yo yo with how he was acting with her. Things will get settled but it takes over half the novel to get there. Now with Jenny’s character she was the frantic mom who was over stressed and over worked. I think her character worked but she was a little on the crazy side at times. I do love her interaction with her youngest Sammy. That kid with his lisp is too precious and Sammy’s interaction with Dev’s kid is adorable.

There were some definite good things and some annoying things but overall this was an enjoyable book. I am reading the third book next.

Perfect 10

The Perfect 10Katrina was trying to figure out her new phone when she made a big mistake, she linked her bootybook app to her webpage. This mistake let everyone see how she judged the guys she had causal sex with. Katrina will quickly receive a lot of hate texts and calls from some of her ex’s but there was one who scored an almost perfect 10 that wanted to try again to get the perfect 10.

Perfect 10 is a novel by Erin McCarthy. I liked the book. It was cute and comical with the plot.

Katrina’s character seemed like a normal girl who was dating around but never finding that perfect guy. Although she did find the perfect guy in Drew but she was too scared and unsure what to do. She seemed a little frazzled but she gets it together in the end. Drew’s character, the almost perfect 10, was in all accounts a great guy. He was just a guy that wasn’t sure what to do when he had slept with his best friend. I liked that he will finally gets it together and pursues her like he should have done in the beginning. I liked how they had been friends to begin with and of course they were getting that second chance to try again.

Overall it was a fun book to read.

Bet Me

Bet MeMinerva “Min” Dobbs was done with men after her boyfriend dumped her because she wouldn’t sleep with him. Min wasn’t expecting another man to come into her life though it wasn’t by chance as it was all because of a bet.

Cal Morrisey did not want to take the bet especially when he met Min. She was too difficult to charm as he normally did with woman. Though as he spends more time with Min he finds that he starts to really want this woman.

Bet Me is a novel by Jennifer Crusie. So a while ago someone told me to try Jennifer Crusie and they told me to try this book. I haven’t had the time until now. Well I will have to say that I liked the book. It was charming and a little crazy but in a fun way.

I liked the relationship between Min and Cal. They actually didn’t like each other. They were opposites in most way but that changes as they spend time together. When they are starting to spend time together its actually sweet. Of course Min tries to fight the attraction especially as she knows about the bet. Though Cal really didn’t make the bet with David but I liked that Min does know so she isn’t blindsided when it comes out.

There were many side characters that were part of the story. Some were great, some were annoying but needed when it came to telling the story. There was one thing I really liked at the end which was the epilogue. Crusie fast forwards time to tell the reader what was going on with these characters. I will be back for more books by Jennifer Crusie.
