Detective Rafe Davenport has always made Courtney DeLollis uneasy. While her instincts whisper, Touch him, her mind says, Run. But since she learned that he’s dominant in the bedroom, she hasn’t been able to forget about it.

Letting go might be the key that unlocks her pleasure…
Attorney Cassie Blaire has spent most of her life living by rules. Rules that keep her life sensible, and on the right path. But five years after losing her husband, Cassie is saying sayonara to “sensible.” And it starts now—with indulging a need she’s long denied.
When he arrives in Colorado, all Brad Steele wants is a scotch before he has to play nice in the first face-to-face meeting with his co-counsel in an ugly divorce case. But instead, he finds her—a lush, inviting stranger whose dark eyes invite him to sin…and thirst turns into a raw, undeniable hunger.
Now Cassie is initiated into a world that has nothing to do with being sensible, and everything to do with sensuality. Under Brad’s guiding touch, she’s receiving an education in desire—one that breaks all of the old rules, and explores tant…

The Face Transplant

Image
Want to know when a book is going to be a good one and you will be on the ride of your life? When the story starts out with Dr. Matthew MacAulay and his staff held at gun point. They are told if their patient dies then they all die. Whoever the patient is must be a very important person for him to be receiving a face transplant. Matthew and his staff do get to live another day.

Before Matthew can fully comprehend what happened to him, he learns that his close friend and mentor has died. Matthew uncovers that his friend's death was not by natural causes. Also, his friend had found a way to do facial transplants where there was virtually no scarring. As if that person had been born with that face. You can imagine the type of people that would kill for this type of knowledge.

I liked this book. It was different from my normal routine of reading. I could not help but think of the movie, Face Off starring Nicholas Cage and John Travolta. If they had this type of technology and could …

1001 Questions to Ask Before Having a Baby

Image
If you have ever thought about having a baby then you might want to hold that thought until you have read this book. Monica shares all kinds of knowledge or questions that you need to be asking yourself and your partner before taking this major life changing event.  There were so many questions that I had never ponder before.  This book is not just geared towards the women but also the men.  In fact this book is more of a workbook for couples. I even had my husband take the survey near the beginning of the book for men. I got a good idea of where he really stood on the idea of having a baby in the mix as a new addition. Not quite ready but almost there.  Me on the other hand is not ready yet. This is fine. I want to make sure that we are both there before we take this journey together. I will pick up this book again in about 6 months to see if our answers change any. This book would make a good gift for anyone.

Confessions of a Wild Child

Image
I am some what familiar with Lucky. I only say this because I have not read every book in the series about the Santangelo family. However the ones that I have read involving the grown Lucky, I could tell she was a strong, independent woman. Reading Confessions of a Wild Child is a fun intro to the past and where Lucky came from and how she got to be the woman she is today.

Having a father like Gino, I can't really blame Lucky for rebelling like she did. Of course if she was a good girl then there would be no book like this and Lucky would not be as interesting. However I have to say that Olympia made Lucky seem like a "saint" (pun intended). The ending was not that good. Reading this book does make me want to read the next Lucky novel.

Mercy Taylor is a tour guide. That is about all she can do. She comes from a family of witches but due to some sick joke Mercy has no powers. That is why she is sneaking off in the middle of the night to see Mother Jilo. She wants Mother Jilo to cast her a love spell. While Mercy does have a crush on her twin sister's boyfriend, Jackson that is not who Mercy wants the spell case on. She wants Mother Jilo to cast a spell on Mercy to fall in love with her childhood friend, Peter. Peter is in love with Mercy. When Mercy learns the price for the spell, she realizes it is not worth the risk. Mercy is called upon her Aunt Ginny the next morning. When Mercy walks into the room, she finds her aunt murdered. It is up to Mercy and her family to find her aunt's killer.

What I noticed right away was that Mercy while she was an adult at 20, almost 21, she seemed much younger like in her teens. Which would not have bothered me so much if she was in her teens but I wanted Mercy to grow up …

The only thing that you would be "Doing Harm" to yourself is by not reading this book!

Dr. Steve Mitchell is a good surgeon. He is also in charge of training the new medical students. Steve is hoping to also further his career. If all goes right then, Steve will have everything...great career, wife, and children. Sadly, luck is not on Steve's side. First his patient goes into kidney failure and his next patient, he almost kills. It seems that there is something more sinister happening at the hospital like a serial killer that wants to teach Steve a lesson.

This book did not read like Mr. Parson's first book but more like Mr. Parson's fourth book. He comes out of the gate to impress. It has been a while since I have read a good medical thriller. I really enjoyed this book. It really felt like I was in the hospital. In fact, it kind of felt like I was in Steve's shoes. However I did have to wonder in the beginning if Steve was incompetent in his medical skills. He did not seem to be a very lucky guy. When his patients start getting sick this is when Steve…

Telling Tales

Image
Allie, Kitty, Wade, and Cameron are all members of the Candy Club. A long time ago, they used to spend long weekends at Professor Warren's mansion. They would spend their time telling stories (all good but naughty). So it was not really a surprise when the professor died and left the mansion to the group. The Candy Club decides to go to the mansion for some story time and maybe more.

I have read many, many erotic novels. While all of them pretty much have the same theme, there are always something about these books that could make them a little different or extra steamy. Well sadly, if this book was steamy I won't know. I only got to chapter two and had to put it down. There was no substance in regards to a good storyline. Also, I was not feeling any of the characters what so ever. Everyone was just so horny that they could not turn it off. Which was a turn off.

Defiant: The POWs Who Endured Vietnam's Most Infamous Prison, the Women Who Fought for Them, and the One Who Never Returned

Image
Defiant is a not to be missed book! If you really want to know what it is like to be a prisoner of war (POW) in another country then you should read this book. While I am not very versed in what the United States does in regards to the POWS that we have in regarding to the different torture techniques as this would be top secret, I can just assume that we treat the POWS here in the United Statesway better then the men featured in this book endured in North Vietnam.

In fact, this book is so intense that at times I had to put it down to clear my head. If reading this book you don't get close to these men then you must not be human. I could picture everything that that the men went through including what they must look like with their injuries and broken bones. When the men were finally able to reunite with their families, I cheered. It was both a happy but sad reunion. It is reading things like this and what the other countries do that makes me not sorry about the things that the U…

Time to Kill

Image
Book summary Time to Kill is a pulse-racing thriller about Islamic terrorists bent on delivering Egypt into the hands of America’s arch enemy—Iran

In Jack Coughlin and Donald A. Davis' newest thriller in The New York Times bestselling series featuring American sniper Kyle Swanson, the Sphinx, a symbol of Egypt’s ancient history and power, is blown up by terrorists. A visit to Cairo by Iran’s national soccer team ends in a bloodbath.  Egyptian missiles sink an Iranian vessel in the Red Sea.  The Muslim Brotherhood is on the march, working behind the scenes to provoke a war between Egypt and its powerful neighbor, Iran—a war that would certainly result in an Iranian victory. What is at stake is nothing less than total control of the Suez Canal through which most of the world’s oil flows.

Behind the coup is a sinister double agent called The Pharoah whose goal is a fanatic Islamic regime on Israel’s borders. To avoid a direct military confrontation with Iran, the U.S. turns to master A…

Love's Sweet Beginning

Image
Cassie and her mother have nothing but each other after the death of Cassie's father. They were staying with Cassie's father's brother but they have overstayed their welcome. Cassie's mother has a plan that they will go to her brother's place in Noble Springs. Only when they arrive nothing goes as planned. Cassie decides to get a job. Her boss, Jacob West will need more convincing that Cassie is the right woman for the job.

Love's Sweet Journey is the third book in the Sisters at Heart series. This book can be read as a stand alone novel. I instantly fell in love with Cassie. She was not wilting flower. She has a back bone and was not afraid to stand up for what she wanted. While I know this book was about the romance between Cassie and Jacob, I did not feel the connection. Well not right away. In fact they hardly interacted in any romantic way until about mid-way of the story.

Also to be honest, I was so glad when Cassie's mother disappeared for a while …

AFTER I'M GONE BLOG TOUR + SWEEPSTAKES

Bambi meet and fell in love with Felix. They got married and had children. Everything was good except for one small detail. Felix has a mistress. Felix disappears before he can face prison. Bambi thought that he left with his mistress. That is until ten years to the day that Felix disappeared that his mistress is found dead buried in a park. Now, it is up to Detective Sandy to figure out what happened to Felix and his mistress.
It has been a little while since I have read a book by this author. I was in the mood for a good mystery book. While I did like this book, I was not in love with it or the characters. Maybe it is because of Felix or that the women in Felix's life were not that intriguing. I kind of drifted along reading this book. What I mean by this is that after reading about a third of the way into this book, I sort of skimmed parts to make it go faster. I did not feel like I missed anything of great importance by doing this. However I must admit that Bambi did surpris…

Hyde

Image
I picked up a copy of this book because it sounded very intriguing. I have to tell you that after reading this book that I was a little sad when I finished it. Mr. Levine has a really good talent for telling a spelling bounding story with such depth and character development.

I instantly was in love with Hyde. I never saw him as a villain but more as a humanitarian. In fact, I liked him so much that when Hyde would disappear and Jekyll took over, I was slightly disappointed. The ending did not come as too much of a great surprise to me. It was easy to put all the pieces together on what was going to happen. This book is on the dark side of human nature. I cannot wait to read the next book by Mr. Levine.

I liked this book. Frances really grew as a person. She did start out weak but with enough time, she blossomed. From the beginning I could not stand William. I found him off putting. So for me I could not believe that Frances could fall for William. In fact, it was kind of aw…

R Is for Rebel

Image
After ending her long time relationship, Abigail is ready to figure out what she wants from her life. She knows it is not jet plane rides, glamourous clothing, or living in a castle. This is not the attitude you would expect from a Princess. There is one thing for sure that Abigail wants and that is multi millionaire, Eliot.

Eliot can not stop thinking about Abigail. He wants her. However he wants her forever as in being his wife. He knows that is not what Abigail wants. Yet, he can not be without her, even if she will break his heart.

R is for Rebel is the latest book in the Unruly Royals series. I have not read the prior novels but I had no problems jumping right into this book. Well to be honest, it did take me a moment or two to figure out what was happening in the beginning. What I mean by this is that Abigail had already met and formed an attraction to Eliot. There was no lead up to their meet and greet. However, I liked this book a lot that I want to go back and read the thre…
