Two Times as Hot

Two Times as HotEmma Hart was coming back to Oklahoma for her sisters wedding. Emma was hoping that she might be able to meet up with Jace and try again but then she sees Logan and knows he is the man that she wants.

Lieutenant Colonel Logan Hunt was not looking for love but he was not scared of it. So when he meets Emma at the wedding he will be shocked at the instant attraction they feel together. They each know they will only have a one night stand but when she comes back to visit her sister everything changes.

Two Times as Hot is the second book to the series Oklahoma Nights by Cat Johnson. I thought that this was a great follow up from the first book. In fact I think I liked this a little more than the first book.

Emma is looking for love, is looking for someone to commit to but she has been unlucky in that department. She will follow her sisters lead and have a one night stand with a man, Logan, only things will never be the same after that night. Emma will be getting an unexpected surprise that wouldn’t have her running in fear but fearful of what that might do with her relationship with Logan. Now Logan is a good man. He is not afraid of commitment, just doesn’t think about it. I liked that he starts to change a little when he starts seeing Emma. They are good together, the sexual chemistry is there but they can just talk to each other as well.

The one thing that I didn’t like in the book was right at the end. Well truthfully I liked the impact and the results of the ending I just thought that Logan was a little cheesy at the end of the book.

Alright now I have to say this that I wasn’t really that interested in Tara or Jace. Tara was after Logan even though he was way to old to be with her, and Jace had commitment issues with his ex-girlfriend. I think that they both need some growing up and figure out what they really want in life. I will be reading their story next and hope that they have gotten a little maturity in their book.

Long Time Coming by Sandra Brown

Sandra Brown is an author who keeps on delivering different types of love stories that you get caught up in.  Long Time Coming is just another one of those examples.

He arrived out of the blue-a fresh and blood phantom from the past in a sports car as sleek and sexy as Law Kincaid himself.  The world famous astronaut was a devastatingly attractive as teh first time Marnie Hibbs had laid eyes on him, seventeen years before.  But she well knew the perils of falling for a ladies man like Law.  And this time she had someone besides herself to protect.

Law is determined to discover who is sending him anonymous letters claiming he’d fathered a son he knows nothing about.  Showing up at the Hibb’s return address from the letters seemed like a step in the right direction.

Marnie swears she isn’t the guilty party, but when Law meets her son, it’s like a one-two punch to his solar plexus.  The boy is nearly the spitting image of Law.

Law can’t remember sleeping with Marnie then again, he can’t remember much about his crazy past.  But there’s more to it than that: Marnie claims the boy isn’t biologically hers.

As the tension between them becomes unbearable and the attraction undeniable, Marnie is forced to reveal a long-held secret…one that might cause her to lose both the boy she loves more than anyone and the man she desires more than anything.

Sandra Brown delivers a short romance novel which makes you melt.  Marnie’s character is a perfect woman but I hated when she felt the need to conform to Law’s word.  She shouldn’t feel the need.  And I got a little frustrated that she thought she was going to lose it all.  That would have been unfair.

Other than that the novel was a cute thing to read and let you see that love can find it’s way even from the past.

Casey by Lori Foster

The last book in the Buckhorn series by Lori Foster (in the collection Enticing) and it was amazing.  I don’t have a favorite brother/Uncle but Casey, the son of Sawyer was wonderful.  He was just like his uncles and dad.

Casey in his youth is chased by girls and the one he resisted was Emma Clark.  He liked her but didn’t know that it was more until she ran away from their home.  Eight years later Casey is a vice executive in his stepgrandfathers company and doesn’t love it.  His life is fine, love his family but he has not settled down.  He keeps dating but not finding the one.  It is late at night as he and a woman, Kristin who he worked with, were driving down the road when he saw a car stalled on the road.  He gets out to help and low and behold is a woman from his past, Emma Clark.  Casey is blown away how she looks.  Immediately he wants her but is not sure if she is with the guy with her.  He has to find out.

Emma sees Casey and all the old feelings are back from when she was a kid.  Of course with her reputation for sleeping around she understood why Casey never took interest in her.  Emma was too unsure of herself  and her family problems still remained.  This was the reason she was back, her father had a stroke and she was worried.

Casey took this time now to get to know Emma.  He wanted to know everything about her and what happened in her past, her family and where she went off too when she ran away.  But Emma is resisting being honest with him, of course she couldn’t resist Casey or his family.  On a side note Damon, Emma’s friend, which was more like a brother was finding his way in town as well with a certain woman, Ceily.

This was a fantastic finish to the series.  I loved how the family grew up, especially all of the nieces and nephews.  It was nice to see all of the brothers happy and now Casey.
