A Week in “Review”

I’ve been trying to read a lot lately.  Most of the reason,  a few of my favorite authors had new releases. I always try to show my support and appreciation by reviewing an author’s books.  I am not a professional reviewer by any means.

I want to note a few of these books aren’t yet released, but you should go and add them on Goodreads OR “follow” the author on Amazon to get up-to-date release information.  Each book will be releasing soon!

NEW Releases:
Love's Revenge (Means of Mercy #2)Love’s Revenge by Terri Rochenski

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Anne is a remarkably strong woman who had the means to change her life. Anne didn’t have a fairy tale life, but it helped her grow and become a survivor. Have you ever been hurt so deeply you’d do anything to let it never happen again? Anne clung to her hurt and pain to make her life change and give her control of her own future for once and get her away from an abusive man.

I loved watching Anne grow and I loved meeting Connagher. He is the all American cowboy, and you can’t not love his patience and kindness. Anne made me want to slap her a few times, but after remembering her pain and knowing that she is headstrong you understand her hesitancy to allow herself to love anyone again.

I find it entertaining that Gavan allowed his desire and anger for what he couldn’t have destroy him and his relationship with Anne, only to have Anne to the same. The difference is she was productive with her anger.

You can’t go wrong if you like historical romances with heroines that take control of their own life overcoming the barriers for woman of the time. I could not put it down.

I did not see the ending at all. LOVED it!
UPCOMING Releases:

Susceptible to Him (Risso Family #1)Susceptible to Him by Lynn Burke

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

If you want a quick read with romance and a bit of steam that will get your nether regions going, read this!

This was a great contemporary read that I finished in one day. It left me smiling for the hero and heroine.

Lia needs to move past the hurt of finding her fiance in bed with other women (plural). In her mind this is a shock, she thought she had a loving relationship. Good thing she has an awesome, albeit horny, roommate. Someone has got to push Lia back out into the dating pool after two years.

What can I say about Ryan? He seems like the boy next door once he opens up. Granted he is a very rich boy next store who has a great car and an even more impressive body. The entire time he is a charmer with a very genuine side. He’s that man every woman would love to meet and marry. He might have all the charms of a lady’s man, but deep down he’s just another guy looking for love.

This book is steamy at points with a sweet budding romance.

A Highlander's Passion (Highlander's Beloved, #2)A Highlander’s Passion by Vonnie Davis

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Ms. Davis has a way with words. I love the first book in this series and the second book did not let me down. The youngest brother Bryce, was hinted at in the first book. Now we get to hear and see his story. Although this story has some serious undertones, Ms. Davis adds her humor at every twist and turn she can. I love getting lost in the highlands. Bryce is HOT and some of the scenes are smoldering. Oh to be Kenzie.

Kenzie is a contrast to the first books lighthearted feel. I wasn’t sure how I would feel about this. She is a strong woman who has made it out of an abusive relationship and isn’t going to let it define her. It does however make her see the world in a tainted way.
Bryce is hell bent on getting her to see the good in the world and protect her. I say let him. As always, the men are hot. Gram is still a nut, but she is a nut with purpose.

Overall, if you loved book one this is a must read. The story is suspenseful with a little witchcraft, the good kinds mostly. The love story is believable and you can feel the pain that Kenzie endured and why she made some poor decisions in her past. You love Bryce for his ability to admit to his own mistakes and the sweet way he helps Kenzie heal from her pains. It can be read alone too, but I don’t know why you would want to miss A Highlanders Obsession. I can’t get enough of these kilted warriors.
