New Orleans

New OrleansRose Thayer was the maid of honor for her best friend.  She arrived in New Orleans expecting the usual wedding events but she will find herself being sent to the bachelor party as a stripper to find out if the groom will cheat.

New Orleans is the first book to the series Sex, Lies & Wedding Cake by Cat Johnson. Alright, I liked the novella for the most part but I felt that the author could have a lot done more. The transitions between the scenes were too quick, and it seemed that I was missing pieces. I wanted more to the story, for her to flush out the characters. I wanted to know more about Rose and Tim, but all we got was a strange situation and sex. Still there were funny moments, I just wanted more.

I am going to continue with the other two books of the series as I am curious about what will happen next.

Outrageous

OutrageousJudd Sanders was undercover as a stripper. His job was to get close to one man who ran the illegal business but there will be a woman that gets in the way. Judd will be annoyed by Emily’s behavior but he knows he has to protect her.

Emily Cooper wanted revenge against the man that was responsible for selling her brother a gun. She will find help in a stripper but will find that Judd is not all that he seems.

Outrageous is a novel by Lori Foster. This book was one of the first novels by Foster. Now I liked it, but it wasn’t my favorite of her stories. It took me some time to truly get into the story and when that happened I felt that I wanted more with the characters. I wanted to know more about them, to flush out more detail about them. I thought that the plot was fun and a little silly with Judd being undercover and having to play a stripper. Then there is Emily who is a socialite but not really. She is a more down to earth than her wealthy parents.

Even though this one wasn’t my favorite I will still be completely willing to read more from Lori Foster as the majority of her books I have really loved.

 

Against the Night

Against the NightJohnnie Riggs is on assignment when he finds a dancer he wants. Exotic dancers were never his thing but this woman pulled him in with begin confident on stage and almost shy on the floor. He will find that Amy is not all she seems to be and in way over her head.

Amy Brewer took her sisters job in hopes to find a way to locate her sister who disappeared. Amy will be out of her element when dancing and investigating but will find help with Johnnie. They will keep going with the clues they find even with danger breathing down their necks.

Against the Night¬†is the fifth book to Kat Martin’s series Raines of Wind Canyon. I keep going with the series and with every book Martin keeps the action, romance and the adventure continuing with those tough guys you love to read about. Johnnie was no exception to the rule. He was a tough man who knew what he wanted and that included the woman Angel or really Amy. Now Amy’s character is a contradiction and really fun to read about. She has fire and naivete all in one.

Now for me I think this had a little more violence in this one but there was a good plot and good characters. There was also a good amount of sex but the action of the situation kicks up and the plot becomes intense. There are some very intense scenes that will have you biting your nails and wonder what will happen next. The scenes become gritter when it comes down to the sister, Rachel. You weren’t sure throughout the book what would happen and if she was alive. You find out half way through the book and what happened to the sister is horrific but there will be justice seen for the villain of the story. Against the Night will be next.
