Flirting with Disaster

Flirting with DisasterIsabelle West was an artist and was very guarded. She was guarded as she had been hiding for years from her past, though her past was about to be revealed.

Tom Duncan was on a task to protect a judge, his job did not include checking out an artist who had trust issues. Tom will follow his gut and find that Isabella was not who she seemed.

Flirting with Disaster is the third book to the series Girls Night Out by Victoria Dahl. I liked this third book to the series. I thought it went in a different direction than the others with a mistaken identity and dealing with cops. Although with all that was going on it still felt light (not a suspense novel) but full of romance.

The characters are strong in their convictions and passions which makes Isabella and Tom almost explosive when they interact. I liked how Dahl created Isabelle’s character, you got the impression that she did not trust easily and was a loner for most of the time. The mystery behind her past intrigued me as a reader. Now Tom was a good man and solid US Marshall. He did his job well but he gets in trouble when he meets Isabelle, especially when he finds out that she is hiding something. You knew immediately there would be trouble when he didn’t come clean that he knew about her past.

The fourth book comes out this month and I’m sure that I will I will be picking it upĀ  in the near future.

Looking for Trouble

Looking for TroubleSophie Heyer had lived with scandal since she was a child when her mother had disappeared with another man. She had lived with the rumors and made sure to play the part of the good girl so no one compared her to her mother but then she will meet Alex.

Alex Bishop was back at his brothers request. He did not want to be back in Jackson but he gave in. Alex will ride into town and find that nothing had changed except that his mother had become crazier and that he was lusting after a librarian.

Looking For Trouble is the second book to the series Girls Night Out by Victoria Dahl. I liked the book. It was full of passion and lust with some heartbreaking moments.

The character of Sophie was one who was sweet and shy but there was another side to her. She was also wild and wanted more. I liked that she found it with Alex. Now although their scenes were definitely steamy I wasn’t thrilled with the way that Sophie wanted to be treated in bed. There were only a few lines that I thought weren’t necessary but overall they were steamy scenes. So then there is Alex who is the big bad biker boy. He is rough and doesn’t want any attachments. He found the perfect partner with Sophie but you know that real feelings will bloom between them.

Rose Bishop’s character was unbalanced. I know in the end there was a reason for her recent behavior but even before that she was crazy. I felt bad for her at least to a point. She should have gotten help and not neglected her children or spread the rumors around town that made Sophie’s life very hard.

Also for those who read Jackson Hole series you will notice Shane and Merry’s character from Too Hot to Handle. Shane is the brother of Alex.

I am reading the third book next which is with Isabella who is friends with Sophie and Lauren.

Fanning the Flames

Fanning the flamesLauren Foster was looking for a night of sex. She had not expected that night would involve Jake Davis who was a firefighter and her ex husbands good friend.

Jake Davis was told by his adult daughter to get out and find someone. Jake will take the advice and find himself looking at Lauren, a local librarian.

Fanning the Flames is the first book to the series Girls Night Out by Victoria Dahl. I liked the book but I felt that it should have been longer. This was a novella under one hundred pages.

The story was about two characters who were middle aged and will be lusting after each other. I was happy to read that Jake, who was forty seven, was wanting Lauren who was a few years younger than him. He was not looking for a twenty something girl. Though as I said before I wanted more, I wanted them to find love with each other and have that struggle but find their way back together. Dahl did hit those points it was just really quick. I guess it seemed just too short for me to really love either character, I liked them just wasn’t loving them.

I, however, am going to read their next two books to the series which are full lengths book. The second book is with Sophie who was mentioned in this book.
