Review: HER FIERY VIKING by A.J. Tipton

In Her Fiery Viking by A.J. Tipton, Mike is an ancient Viking who was cursed not only with immortality but also with an out of control temper that has him literally erupting into flames if he is provoked. Joanna is a structural engineer with a huge anger management problem. Ever since her sister died, Joanna’s temper has been out of control, costing her jobs and landing her in court. Taking a job at Mike’s demolition company will bring in some much needed cash but on the first day, Joanna gets into a very heated argument with several of her new coworkers.  Her boss gives her an ultimatum: get her temper under control or she won’t have a job. Joanna seeks solace at an anger management support group and is surprised to find her sexy new coworker Mike there. Will Joanna and Mike act on their attraction? Can Joanna get her temper under control and save her job?

23214922Holy cow! This book might not be long but it packs a huge punch. From the opening scene until the last paragraph I was sucked into this world and honestly wished this book was a lot longer.

The chemistry between Joanna and Mike is intense from the get go. I could picture in my head sparks shooting between them when they first met. The bedroom scenes are downright combustible.

The background story of Joanna and Mike’s past was so sad to read about. Both had experienced horrible tragedies and both were dealing with the consequences of their anger.  Hopefully now that they have found each other they will both get some much deserved peace.

Review: A DARE WITH CONSEQUENCES by Wendy S. Marcus

Wendy S. Marcus has done it again with A Dare with Consequences. She has written a story about characters I absolutely fell in love with and a story that does not at all go the way I expect. in general, I am not a fan of one-night stand romances, but I trust Marcus’ writing enough that she is an auto-read for me. I was rewarded with a wonderful novella filled with a handsome hero that had me swooning over the type of man he turned out to be. The heroine is a kickass, independent woman determined to make it on her own and not take the easy way out. The story had the right amount of build up with great character development and an original take on a common romance trope.

30008410Ren and Anya’s story is one of passion and struggle. These characters provide us with realistic life decisions. They are doing their best with the hand they have been dealt in life. The only thing that is preventing them from being together is themselves. They have to learn how to trust one another and to give in to the feelings they hold for the other. It’s such a good story.

Review: HARD TO LET GO by Laura Kaye

I am so sad to see the Hard Ink Series by Laura Kaye come to an end. I have loved every one of the Hard Ink stories and I feel like I am one of the team after reading them all. I love how different each love story has been with this series while following the common plot between them all. In Hard to Let Go, we get to read about Beckett and Kat. Their story is explosive. Their passion for one another as well as their short tempers makes for an interesting romance. It kept me turning pages, along with the team unraveling more information to get closer to solving the series-long mystery. If you have not read this series, you really need to read it in order, so I suggest you go back to the beginning and read Hard As it Gets.

23003746Hard to Let Go definitely made me squirm at the insanely hot intimate scenes but also had me in tears at a few heartbreaking scenes. The pacing is great, however there was a scene or two where I wanted to tell Beckett and Kat to keep their pants on and get on with what else is happening around them (they do enjoy their sexy time together). Beckett and Kat each had their own internal struggles that added another layer to this book. I was so happy for both of them when they finally trusted each other enough to let the other one in.

Review: BADLANDS by Jill Sorenson

In Badlands by Jill Sorenson, Owen Jackson is trying to break away from his past. A former convict, Owen was a hero during a San Diego earthquake when he helped rescue a group of strangers trapped under a collapsed interstate. Penny Sandoval was in that group and despite her knowledge of his past she still develops feelings for Owen. Owen can’t be with Penny. For one, he is now her security guard since her father is running for president and two, he doesn’t think he deserves Penny. When Owen’s brother kidnaps Penny, her young son, and Owen, the couple find themselves fighting for their lives. A daring escape into the California desert may save them but at what cost? Can they escape Owen’s brother? Will Owen and Penny finally give into their feelings for each other?

18006107I am so happy that we finally get Penny and Owen’s book. I loved this couple in Aftershock. I kept hoping that they would find a way to be with each other.

I loved Penny’s character. In Aftershock, we get a glimpse of her becoming her own person outside of her family’s political expectations. In this book though, we finally get to see Penny standing on her own. Penny doesn’t care that Owen had a criminal past. She sees past what would be a road block for many people and sees what a caring person Owen is. When she finally stood up to her father at the end I almost did a happy dance.

Owen’s character has intrigued me since the moment he left the convicts to join Garrett in protecting the good group during the aftermath of the earthquake. I wondered why he joined the Aryan Brotherhood in prison when he seemed so ashamed for Penny to see his prison tattoos. In this book we finally find out the heart breaking reason why. We also get to learn a lot about his childhood and get an appreciation for how far he has come. Read the rest of this entry »
