My Review:


4 Bittersweet Stars
I really liked this story. It was sad but it had a positive outcome. My boys liked it a lot too. In fact, I had to read it several times before bed. Definitely a keeper!

This is one book that we will be buying when it comes out.

Review: Texas Mail Order Bride






Oh my, my! I cannot sing this book’s praises enough. I simply fell in love with Ms. Broday’s writing. It’s superb and magical. I really felt as though I were in Texas right smack in Battle Creek. I loved the characters, all of them. The richness of their personalities drew me in quickly. The banter between Cooper and Delta is fabulous. I even laughed out loud in some parts. I say, what good is a story without some humor thrown in?? This story has a bit of everything: passion, action, adventure, mystery… you name it, it probably has it. I cannot wait to read the next book in this series! I would highly recommend this book to anyone who loves romance, western, or just loves a stellar story to get wrapped up in for a few hours.


This is one of my favorite parts of the book:

Delta covered the space between them so quickly Bandit (the dog) scurried for safer territory. She glared up into eyes that reminded her of a cold winter’s day. “I can’t believe this. You have a lot of gall, Mr. Thorne. The way I see it, you have up your right to meddle in my affairs when you told me in no uncertain terms that you weren’t looking for a wife. Therefore, what I do is none of your concern. if I want to-”
“Do what?” Live in sin with Rand?” Cooper brushed her cheek with a fingertip. “You won’t. Women like you won’t throw your reputation to the wind. You want it all or nothing.”
She glared. “You’re awful sure of yourself.”
“I know more than you think.” His words were soft. “I see the yearning for permanence in your eyes. Dear God, you’re a difficult woman to forget.”
Cooper tugged her against his lean body, lowered his head, and pressed his sensual lips firmly on hers. The long kiss held passion and promise and warmth. Delta’s breath got caught somewhere between the need for more and wishing she’d stayed in town, far away from men who indulged in contradictory behavior.
Her knees grew weak and she clutched the shirt covering his broad chest to keep from falling as the world tilted on its axis.
As the kiss deepened, their breaths mingled in a heated flurry while blood pounded in her ears. She heard a low moan and realized it came from her. Strange how it sounded so very far away.
Her stomach whirled and dipped as though she ‘d fallen from a great height. Tingle raced up her spine in some kind of mindless confusion. The anger that had propelled her into dangerous territory melted away and left a strange desire in its wake. She shouldn’t have let this happen. Before she could unclench her hands from his shirt to take a step back, he released her.
The kiss ended suddenly, leaving her wanting more.
Cooper’s sinful half smile turned her knees to jelly. “And that, Miss Delta, is how we do things here in Texas.”

Lie to Me by Bethany Bazile

Romance Novels for the Beach

lie to meOh snap, crackle, pop! shit is going down in this book! In the previous two novels of this series we see how Xander continues to build on the lies and secrets he’s keeping from Avery, but in this final installment his entire bubble of deception pops in an epic emotional breakdown. And poor Avery discovers all of these secrets in the exact same day. If that situation doesn’t warrant calling up your girlfriends to get drunk on cosmopolitans well then I don’t know what does!

If you haven’t read my reviews of the first two books, well then get on it already! Just kidding, but you should at least read their summaries before proceeding with the rest of this review so you know who is who, what is what, and who is screwing (over) who. Or you can just go ahead and read my reviews of Insomnia (book one) and

Catching AirFor Dawn Zukowski, fleeing a life — and love — she thought she wanted is more than she bargained for. Marooned in the snowy wilds of Vermont, she happens to meet two couples — Kira and Peter, Rand and Alyssa — who have recently taken over a charming bed-and-breakfast in the mountains.
