Review: The Bastard Billionaire by Jessica Lemmon

garden

THE BASTARD BILLIONAIRE is hot yet sweet, with sympathetic, unforgettable characters you root for. I was so invested in Eli and Isa’s story that I was disappointed when I reached the end!

Eli is a bear to work for, but Isa stood her ground and wouldn’t let him run her off. I love that while Eli was attracted to Isa’s beauty, it was her fiery spirit that captivated him and “felled” him. Because of Eli’s insecurities due to his prosthetic limb, the story was full of angst and bittersweet longing on his part, yet Isa’s ready acceptance of him–all of him–finally made him realize there’s this woman who didn’t care about his missing limb, because she saw him–the man underneath the physical attributes. Although of course, aside from his missing leg, he was all man, every mouthwatering, muscled part of him.

Review: Love Story by Lauren Layne

garden

LOVE STORY is a hot, sexy romantic read with unforgettable characters and plenty of angst. Ooh, the angst! I love it and I love this story a lot. This is definitely going on my keeper shelf!

I’ve read a lot of Lauren Layne’s books, ever since I first read and loved Isn’t She Lovely. I don’t remember what POV she used in that book, but as for the others, i find those books which she’d written in first person points of view to be the more unforgettable ones. I thought they came across as more intense and made me feel more. Then again, perhaps it’s the theme: both are friends/enemies-to-loves, which I love.

Review: At Close Range by Laura Griffin

garden

When you read a Laura Griffin work, you know exactly what you’re getting, and that’s pulse-pounding action and excitement, as well as a hot and sizzling romance. There seems more of the romance in this book, and I, for one, am ecstatic about it.

The mystery and danger is closer to home this time, with a double murder, and the change from the terrorist plots of the previous books that I’ve read is a welcome change. Scott and Daniele’s chemistry is hot; I’ve always loved the trope of the hero falling or having the hots for the best friend’s little sister, and Ms. Griffin didn’t disappoint. I love every scene they had together–the intimacy, the conflict, the angst.

Review: Romeo & What’s Her Name by Shani Petroff

garden

ROMEO AND WHAT’S HER NAME is unexpectedly funny and sweet contemporary young adult romance.

Emily Stein is crushing on Wes Rosenthal, and what better way to be close to him than to be the understudy of Juliet to his Romeo? However, she didn’t think she’d have the chance to actually play Juliet, plus she was kept busy by Amanda–who was playing Juliet–doing errands, and so she didn’t have a chance to really learn her lines. On the fateful day, Amanda wasn’t able to go on stage, so guess who had to take her place?

In a place beyond rules,
daring is power,
and love is the greatest threat of all…

CHARACTER INTERVIEW of CAILEAN ROSS (hero)

  1. CoverPlease tell us a little bit about yourself.

    CR:  Sure. (he smiles) I’m a regular Scottish guy. Modern-born, from Scotland’s Central Belt, but I have family ties to the Isle of Skye. For that reason, I’m proud to call myself a Highlander and have always felt drawn to the Highlands. I’m also a medieval reenactor and tournament circuit champion, having earned the title in sword fighting and jousting matches. Now, much to my amazement, I’ve landed in real medieval Scotland. Heatheredge in the far north, to be precise. I’ve fallen for a lass there. We’ll see if I can keep her. I sure hope so.

 

2. How did you feel when you suddenly find yourself in medieval Scotland? What was the first thing you did?
