Review of “The Angel Killer”, by April Taylor @rosieamber1 @authAprilTaylor #RBRT

Wow, what an awesome read! I was not expecting this story when I read the blurb, or when I began to read the book, but it was a great surprise. I loved this story. The story is well written and the characters jump off the pages into your mind and make you feel as if you are working with them to find the killer.

I was not expecting a love story to be intertwined in this story, but there is and it draws so much more out of the story in my opinion. Terri and Deryn are a great team and their attraction to each other draws so much more out of them to help with figuring out who the killer is.  I found myself silently yelling at Harry, Deryn, Terri, and the others to figure out where the danger was coming from and get it to stop.

If you like suspense stories that keep you wondering throughout the book who the bad guy, or girl is, this is the book to pick up and read. I read this within a day and hated to put it down to do anything. I was shocked to find out who the killer was.

Great job on this story April. I loved it and give it 5 stars. I look forward to reading more of your work.

This was my first book to read by April, but I will be reading more, she’s such a great story teller.

ARC Review of “Tempted by Mr. Wrong”, by Jacquie Biggar @jacqbiggar @rosieamber1 #RBRT #BookReview

A romantic suspense story with a strong willed woman who needs the help of a man she thought she would never see again. T.J. and Jason are brought back together after ten years because Jason is on a case, and T.J. may be mixed up in the case he is investigating.

T.J.’s heart was broken when she was a teenager and she had to move on with her life, but her heart was not involved in the move. Now she is faced with seeing the man who broke her heart and tries to figure out if she did move on, or if her heart just stopped until she saw Jason again.

Jason was brought into this case to see if they could get anywhere since he is from this town and the main people under investigation may be related to him. He knows that he was never able to move on from his love for T.J. and seeing her again brings all of those feelings back to the surface for him.

I really enjoyed this story and wished it had gone on longer. I enjoy a story that draws me in and keeps me reading and forgetting about life going on around me and this book did just that. It is very easy to get into the story and lose track of time with this book.

ARC Review of “Claimed”, by Mia Ford and Bella Winters

I enjoyed this story. It made me angry in some spots, laugh in some, and tear up in others, but it was well written and a good story to read. The feelings in this book for the reader as well as the characters were interesting.

Adriana was a strong character and she stayed true to who she was throughout the book. She was an honest woman who loved easily and completely when it came to her mother, even with the past she had with her. A strong woman who knew her own way in life.

Milos had some issues, but he worked them out in the end and found that the love of a good woman could do wonders for a person. His view on relationships was changed when he met Adriana and got to know her and who she really was.

Enjoyable read.

ARC Review of “Owned by the Soldier Prince”, by Devon Birchley

A dominant prince and a head strong, smart, sassy woman. Will they find a way to stay together and make it last forever?

Blair is a college student studying abroad in England and meets Max, English Royalty, seventh in line for the crown. He is smitten with Blair shortly after meeting her and she has no idea who he is, yet.

I enjoyed reading this book, and wish it hadn’t ended. If you like dominant men and strong willed women who compliment each other then you will enjoy this book. This is my first book to read by Devon Birchley and I look forward to more of her stories. This book kept me turning the page from the beginning until the end.

Review of “Taught”, by Sienna Ciles @HGRomanceDeals

Jax, Ernest J. Cooper IV, is the CEO of a software company. He started the company with his best friend from childhood. He’s sexy, kind, and loyal to a fault. He’s not looking for the right woman to stand by his side forever, but fate may intervene.

Lanie Carmichael is an investment broker working for her father until he drops an unexpected bomb on her. She’s looking for her way in the world and in the process runs into a man that she can’t get out of her mind.

These two are getting a lot of advice, but they aren’t quite sure if the advice they are receiving is what they really want or need, but in the end will all of the interested parties help them to find what they want in life? Can these two find their way in the world and remain who they are? This was an enjoyable read. I wanted to scream at the characters a couple of times to make they figure out that they were screwing up, but they figured it out in the end.

Review of “Player: (Caribbean Nights)”, by Anne Marsh @HGRomanceDeals @Anne_Marsh

Not exactly what I expected, but a great read just the same. When you see the title “Player”, you expect a story of a man who sleeps around, but that’s not all there is to Finn Callahan. He’s so much more and then some. Finn is a player and does sleep around, but he finally meets the woman who can tame him and when he realizes this, his life takes a turn. Will he lose the best thing that has ever happened to him?

Valentina Fuentes is a woman who wants to live her life to the fullest after a death scare and loss. When she crashes into Finn’s world, her life takes a turn for the fullest that she can have, but will she take the leap?

This story is so much more than a story about a Player, it is a story of loss, love, strength, and perseverance. These two characters have been to hell and back, but they have found a way to live their lives and take what they can to make their lives the fullest they can be. I enjoyed this story and will now have to get the rest of the books in the series to find out about Roman and Vann’s lives.

Review of “Dirty: The Complete Series,” by Tara Crescent @HGRomancedeals @taracrescent

Wow, I just read the four book series of “Dirty, The Complete Series”. Dirty Therapy, Dirty Talk, Dirty Games, and Dirty Word. Talk about some hot books!! I really enjoyed these books and love the characters. The men are all Alpha and take great care of their women. It’s great to read a story about a man who has his woman’s back no matter what. These men all do and they don’t care what the people in New Summit think of their unconventional relationship. Great stories, all four of them! I loved stepping into the lives of these four groups and reading about their lives. The stories are full of hot sex, hot alpha males, and great love stories. I wish there had been more stories to read in this series. I think Becky and Sophia need their HEA.

Dirty Therapy: When Mia breaks up with her fiancé shortly after saying yes to his proposal, she is at a loss and doesn’t think she is worthy of a relationship. She believes her ex-fiancés statement that she is frigid. She decides to go to the two new Therapists in New Summit to get some help. Benjamin and Landon are new to New Summit and are Sex Therapists, they create a lot of controversy just because of their chosen profession. Mia owns a dress shop and her landlord is a prude and a traditional Psychiatrist who is not happy that Ben and Landon are in New Summit. There’s an immediate attraction between all of them and Ben makes a comment that scares Mia away right off. The controversy really starts when Mia, Ben and Landon act on their attraction to each other. They are the talk of the town.

Dirty Talk: Cassie is Mia’s best friend, they grew up together in New Summit. Cassie owns the coffee shop in town and grew up being paraded in beauty pageants and has some issues with what she had to endure because of it. James and Lucas move to New Summit to get out of Manhattan, NY and care for James’ father Patrick who had a stroke and needs to be someplace that he can get good health care and feel comfortable. James and Lucas spend every morning in Cassie’s coffee shop working on their internet show Dirt Talk. They’re Vloggers and spend a lot of time in the lime light, this scares Cassie and she avoids them because she is petrified of being in front of a camera after her childhood pageants. They come to her rescue on more than one occasion, but the one that makes her open her eyes is after she goes out with the high school quarter back and things don’t end so well. After the talk of Mia, Ben, and Landon has died down, Cassie, James and Lucas become the talk of the town with their unconventional relationship.

Dirty Games: Nina, another good friend to Mia and Cassie owns the pub in New Summit. Before moving to New Summit twenty months ago she was on the road with her two lovers Scott and Zane, and their band Evolving Whistle. She left them because she felt that she came second in their lives. They are in New Summit helping out Zane’s father who is a real estate developer. They know that Nina ended up in New Summit, but they have not tried to connect with her. When she finds out they are there though, all bets are off. They propose a game with her, five steamy nights with them and if she still does not want them, if she wins, she can ask them to leave and they will. What will her decision be?

Dirty Words: Maggie, the daughter of the owner of the Chinese restaurant in New Summit, and good friend of Mia, Cassie, and Nina. Maggie also went to school with Mia and Cassie. She changed her life projection when her father died. She moved back home to help her mother run the restaurant. Her new neighbors are rich and entitled, she thinks. Ethan and Lars moved from Manhattan, NY to New Summit after selling their business and want to start something new. They bought an old hotel in New Summit and are transforming it. They live across the street from Maggie and cause trouble when Lars parks his Lamborghini in her parking spot. He’s done it three times and she has had enough of having to park in the overflow lot down the street when she should be able to park right in front of her apartment. Unknowingly, her brother Damond told Lars it would be fine to park there, but he did not relay the message to Maggie. Maggie gets so angry at Lars that she decides to write some dirty stories about Ethan and Lars and post them on a website called Dirty Words. They find out about her stories and confront her about them.

Review of “The Gamble”, by Alice Ward @AuthorAliceWard @HGRomanceDeals

Talen Gaston, a rich kid with Daddy issues, decides it’s time to grow up and be an adult. He makes changes to start doing just that when his father demands that he grow up and settle down to prove that he is the right person to take over the company.

Dani Brooks, an artist who is trying to care for her sick mother and keep afloat, is in a relationship that is going nowhere and is just a comfortable part of her life. She’s been with the same guy for five years and his priorities are not the same as Dani’s.

Dani and her best friend decide it’s time to go out and live a little the same night that Talen and his best friend decide the same thing. What are the odds that they’ll end up in the same strip club on the same night? A drunken mistake leads to happiness for both.

I enjoyed this book and hated for it to end.

Review of “Going Deep”, by Mia Ford

Danny Dutton is undercover to take down a drug dealer. He comes from a large Irish family and his father was also a cop. He doesn’t have any trouble finding companionship, but he hasn’t found anyone he wants to spend his life with yet.

He finally finds a way into the strip club run by Richie Sylvestri, a drug dealer and all around bad guy. Richie doesn’t care about anyone. Hannah Sylvestri, Richie’s sister is under his thumb and wants out. Can Danny be the guy to help her find a way out? Will Danny get out of this undercover job with his life? Hannah has finally found a man who will be kind to her and take care of her the way she deserves to be cared for. Richie doesn’t give her the credit she deserves for being a smart and savvy woman. It could be his downfall. Even though they are family, he doesn’t deserve any sympathy, kindness, or love.

I really liked this story and the heat between Hannah and Danny is great. I hated to put the book down, and read it in a couple of sittings. I lost track of time while reading this book. Good job Mia, I loved the characters in this book and was happy that Archie stuck around.
