Reviewing a few short books



One minute I'm locked out of my hotel room, and the next... Dylan Hargreave thinks I'm an actress paid to pose as his girlfriend at a North Carolina society wedding. How did this happen to me, of all people? Kendall Clarke, award-winning actuary, the veritable shining star of number crunchers who, just hours ago, learned her responsible fiancé (sorry, ex-fiancé) called off our wedding because he'd gotten one of my colleagues pregnant. What are the odds? Don't tell me you've never heard of Dylan Hargreave. Celebrity NASCAR driver? People magazine's Sexiest Man of the Year? Those eyes. That smile... Forget sensible! I've assessed the risk...and I'm taking it! I usually keep the brakes on, but as of now I'm taking a vacation. From me.

This book I enjoyed quite a bit, it was very funny and believable.  Kendall is what we call a "NERD"  and Dylan is certainly the "HUNK".  There's some controversy  throughout the story which keeps it interesting.  It's a light read but a good one.



Sydney Skeller’s father is spitting bullets over her reluctance to join the family business as a shifter hunter. The last thing Daddy needs to know is why—she yearns for a lover who’s man enough for a relationship but animal enough to give her the wild ride of her dreams. After a treadmill mishap lands her in a tangled heap with Jason Cannon, she wonders if she’s finally found her beast, er, man. One session in bed and one bite later, she’s sure. Now if only she can keep her father from mounting Jason’s head on a wall…
 
Jason is all man on the surface, but wolf shifter down to the bone. He’s more than ready to stop “playing the pack” and find his one true mate, and Sydney of the luscious curves is the woman of his dreams. Finding out that she comes from a family sworn to eradicate his kind isn’t a deal-breaker. But her outrageous plan for him to masquerade as the wolf in hunter’s clothing, right under her father’s very nose, could be asking more than he ever expected to give.

Howling for my baby, wasn't at all believable but it was still fun to read it.  Sydney is a strong but emotional heroine and Jason is an Alpha who's not quite bossy for an alpha.  I honestly think Jason could have been a more take charge and forceful person in this book but he seems more easy going then most Alphas that I've read about.  The book was funny and had me laughing out loud or befuddled a few times.  It's a fast and light hearted read.



Scrumptious as a cherry peach parfait . . . or a sinfully kinky foursome.

The popular cooking show, Brunch with Laura, is T.S. Larkin's brainchild. Rather, it was. Because her boss couldn't keep it in his pants, Truly's unemployed and not sure what to do with herself. When a juicy tip leads her to the best-kept secret in Denver-three mouthwatering chefs whose restaurant image needs a makeover-her PR instincts start tingling. And her imagination simmers with private fantasies.

Ever since the last woman he, Clay and Louis shared nearly ruined everything, Nate has worked hard to get things back in order. Truly's ideas could rescue their business, but her non-stop curves, luscious lips and cherry-on-top hair are a sure-fire recipe for another disaster.

But when the ingredients are right, the reaction is inevitable. A kiss in the walk-in explodes into a wild night of indulging Truly's every sweet and spicy whim. She is the missing ingredient for the perfect foursome. Except Nate is suddenly not so sure he's willing to let the others lick the spoon, much less share.

Warning: Explicit sex, bisexual ménage, delicious recipes, sexy chefs who like to share. Threesomes, foursomes, kinky food tastings, excessive use of shower toys and chocolate . . . Hungry yet?

This Book was a HOT READ!!!  Yummy from beginning to end.  I liked this book because it was sexy, easy to follow and the heroes were oh so Scrumptious lol  Nate  is somewhat an ass but because he and his buds have hurt before and Truly is insecure but with the help of the heroes she seems to get over it.  Lots of sex and humour in this book, I recommend it as a must read Menagerie :)

Just for fun here's some hot Cowboy Pics!
