Tempting the Cowboy

Tempting the Cowboy
by: Elizabeth Otto
Tempting the Cowboy by Elizabeth  Otto
After taking a job on a quiet Montana dude ranch, ex-cop Rylan Frederickson finds herself surrounded by unbelievably sexy cowboys. Too bad the one she wants is her boss...and the single dad of a four-year-old. It doesn’t matter anyway, because after a recent tragedy, there’s simply no more room in her heart.

Letting a new woman into their life is the last thing Cole Haywood wants for him and his daughter, Birdie. But as Rylan’s presence at Paint River Ranch breathes new life into his family he can’t ignore his growing attraction.

When the sparks between them turn into fireworks in bed, Rylan’s torn between the family she’s lost and the one she may have found. Now she must decide if something that feels this good is worth the risk.
4 Save a horse, ride a Cowboy Stars!!
My review:

I really enjoyed reading this book. This is one of those that once you start, you can't stop until the whole darn book is over. I love Rylan. Thank God I have never experienced the loss of a child, but I can only begin to imagine the pain a mother must go through. I felt my heart breaking over and over with every interaction with Birdie. Poor thing.

Cole. Um, yum. What is not to love about a sexy, broody, did I mention sexy cowboy. He doesn't want another woman. He is too dang busy and has been too burned to even thing about going there, but there is something about Rylan that he can't let go of.

Birdie, oh goodness. I heart her. She is just beautiful!

Man oh man, is this a good book! Towards the end, with the incident with Birdie and Rylan, I cried my eyes out. I mean hiccuping, ugly splotchy face, tears. The way Rylan handled it, ugh. What a man! I wanted to punch him so badly.

Such a good book!! I got my eye on you Elizabeth Otto ;)

Can't Let Go

Can't Let Go (Love in the Balance #1.5)
Can't Let Go (Love in the Balance, #1.5)
Can't Let Go is a PREQUEL novella to Hard to Handle, a "before" the happily ever after...


Sadie Howard would never admit there's such a thing as love at first sight, but she can't deny the connection between her and sexy Adonis Aiden Downey. She also can't deny she loves to kiss him-his mouth might be his most precious asset. Despite every promise to herself not to get involved any deeper than a first date, she can't keep from seeing more of Aiden . . . in more ways than one.

Aiden Downey had no idea the hot blonde from the club would trigger his protective, gentle nature, but the moment she drops her guard and he sees the real Sadie Howard, he's a goner. When a family crisis puts the brakes on their budding romance, can Aiden find a way to hold on to her? Or will he lose the best thing in his life just as quickly as he found her?
4 Naughty Novella Stars!!
My Review:
So, I read Hard to Handle and lurved it! I fell completely in love with Sadie and Aidan, but I kept wishing I knew the whole story of what happened to them. Of course I know it was to care for his mom, but I just wanted more. Well, lo and behold, I had completely missed this little nugget here. Now, stuff makes sense. This is the novella that starts it all for Sadie and Aiden and it is hawt! Loved it!

I am now a huge fan of Jessica's and I can't wait to read more from her

Seducing the Enemy

Seducing the Enemy
by: Noelle Adams
Seducing the Enemy
After being injured in a tragic accident as a child, Marietta Edwards has lived a sheltered life. Finally recovered, she wants to indulge in pleasures that are entirely new to her, so she begins by seducing a sexy, mysterious stranger. Only after their one-night stand does she learn their families have been embroiled in a fifteen-year legal battle and the man she’s given herself to is her worst enemy.

The heir to a vast fortune, Harrison Damon believes the unforgettable night he spent with Marietta in Monte Carlo is just a fling, an escape from his responsibilities. Then he discovers she is an Edwards—the family he despises most. He can’t quench his attraction for her, but he won’t let her use it against him. He won’t let her manipulate him to win money from his family. No matter how much he wants her, he won’t let her seduce him again.

4 Solid Can I have Andrew since Harrison is taken Stars!
My Review:
First of all, I devoured this book. Once I got started, there was no stopping. I absolutely adored Marietta. I adored her innocence and strength and wit. And Harrison. Ahh, swoon! Yes, I am swooning. Whether you are climbing the mountain in a tux or just there in casual clothes. Yum! I understood his reluctance to trust Marietta after he found out who she was. You know how it is, once bitten, twice shy. This was a classic case.
I loved the Damon family. Especially Andrew. Umm, yum. Please say he is getting his own book! We need more. I am so grateful that in the end, the right thing was done. Loved this book! Need more!

Hard to Handle

Hard to Handle
by: Jessica Lemmon
Hard to Handle (Love in the Balance #2)
ONCE BURNED Sadie Howard never dates a guy more than once-but Fate has other plans for her when it comes to Aiden Downey, the one that got away. Aiden loved her, left her, and broke her heart. Yet suddenly she's bumping into him at every turn, driven to distraction by his wicked grin and rock-hard body. Now she can't resist finishing what they started-as long as she doesn't let herself fall in love . . . TWICE AS TEMPTING Aiden Downey threw away the best thing he ever had when he let Sadie go, and now he's determined to win back the woman he's always wanted. Sadie agrees to let him into her life-and her bed-as long as there are no strings attached. But Aiden's not about to make the same mistake again. Can he convince her to take a second chance on a once-in-a-lifetime love?
4 Hard to Handle Stars!
My Review:
This was my very first Jessica Lemmon book and I have to say, I am impressed. I really loved this book. I loved Sadie. She was cute, witty, smart, and everything I love in a heroine. She fell for the super sexy biker Aiden once and was burned and she was bound and determined to not go there again.

Aiden is hot. Smoking hot. All broody, tatted up biker. He burned Sadie, but he totally regrets doing it. And he burned her for good reason. He's been through a lot and he is on the road to recovery. He's taken a vow of celibacy until marriage and trying to wear Sadie down. Sadie wants no part in marriage after her engagement goes bad when her sister steals her man. Sadie just wants some sexy times with Aiden, no strings attached.

So, can Aiden wear Sadie down or can Sadie convice him to just have the sexy times? Oh, and wait til you hear Miss Sadie's secret. You go, girl!

Don't want to spoil it for you, so I'll stop. I think I need to go back and read Crickitt and Shane's book now. I totally loved them in this book!

Right Now

Right Now (Moments #2)
by: Marie Hall
Right Now (Moments, #2)
Sometimes in life....
Things were supposed to get better when Ryan met Lili. I was supposed to move on, get a life... but I'm stuck and lost. Things with my father are not good. There are demons in our closet, big ones. Ones I want to kill him for, I'm seeing a shrink, I'm trying to get better... but my life feels out of control, like I'm a raft adrift on the sea. I don't know where to look, how to get anchored again, and then I meet Zoe Stone. Something about her draws me out of my rut, makes me laugh for real, smile, and for the first time in years I want to be more. But what will she think when she discovers who I really am?

...all we have...

When Alexander Donovan, aka The Golden Adonis, walks into my tattoo parlor, I know I'll do anything to make that man mine. There's an instant connection, a need to know more about him. Everything about him. But there's also a mystery surrounding the guy, when people look at him they only see the man that laughs, that cracks jokes and makes the world think that everything's okay, but I see the truth... I see the darkness that lurks so deep inside few would ever recognize it. I want to help him, I want to be with him, now I just have to make him trust me enough to let me in.

Is Right Now

I leaned my head back and thought about the boy who was no longer really a boy.

Alex was a man.

And a tall, really tall, one at that.

The moment I’d seen him walk through the door, my heart had constricted. Painfully. It’d taken me a second to catch my breath. I’d dreamed about him all through high school, watched as he took one girl after another out around town.

I doubted he remembered the girl working the popcorn counter at the theater, but every weekend there was always a new girl on his arm, a new girl kissing him and rubbing her horny little body all over his, and it was a miracle my teeth hadn’t become filed points as much as I’d ground them together.

And maybe it shouldn’t surprise me that he didn’t have a clue who I was; I no longer looked even remotely similar to the girl who’d graduated valedictorian of J.J. Baines High.

My fingers twitched as I remembered the feel of his body in my fist. He was big, and so damn hard my thighs had trembled.
Fire and static and electricity and whatever other chemical combustion had detonated inside me. I’d gone from zero to horny in two seconds the moment he’d walked in.

His hair had glinted so many different shades of blond, from white to burnished bronze, and all I wanted to do was touch it, run my fingers through it, wondering all the while if it was as soft as it'd looked.

One look into eyes that made me think of a sky right after a storm and I could no longer control myself.
5 Let's Hear it for the High School Crush Stars!!
My Review:
I loved this book! Totally 5 stars for me! I cannot believe it took me so long to get to it. I started reading this book and kept thinking I was missing something. So, I went out to GR and realized, yep this is book 2. So, I stopped and went in search of Book 1, A Moment. It's a freebie on Amazon and B&N right now and started that one. And let me say, that was amazeballs and led me right into Right Now. And did I mention it was FREE!

Right Now Alex and Zoe's story. Book 1 is Ryan and Lili's story. As much as I loved Ryan, there was something about his cousin Alex that had me lusting. Maybe it's his Golden Adonis look or his playfulness, or his manwhore tendencies, or his love for Lili and Ryan and Javi. Okay, well it's all of that. Anyway, this book was just something else. I absolutely love Zoe. I love that she reinvented herself and she doesn't take any crap. I love that she is so far opposite of what Alex is, it isn't funny. I love her tats and piercings and style! And I love that she pushes Alex to face his demons. I cannot imagine going through what Alex went through and I fully understand that it messes with his headspace.

This book is funny, it's deep, it's loving, it's just everything I love in this New Adult genre that has taken over my bookshelves! I am 100% a fan of Marie Hall and hope there is a book 3...for Jamie and Tor, perhaps? I can't wait!
