Beauty by Mary Catherine Gebhard


I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

This is book 2. Book 1 ended with a cliff hanger. Although I ultimately enjoyed this book, I found myself frustrated by the amount of misunderstandings, and situations that were conflict for the sake of conflict .

As the story progressed, I loved the love story, but found myself extremely conflicted. Frankie and Anteros, ultimately have a twisted side. I kind of love that the author didn’t pretty it up to appease my moral high ground. At the same time, the fact that certain situations made me gasp in horror while at the same time, made me chuckle at the absurdity of what I just read, unsettled me. Again…I kind of liked that. We’ll done Mary Catherine Gebhard…well done.

Cinderella Undone by Nicole Snow

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

I thought this was going to be another Cinderella story…maybe a little steamier, but I was wrong. This was a very original take of Cinderella. Just the opposite type of story. A dad that finds the most caring woman to help him kept the daughter that he adores. The woman, his sister’s best friend, that has been crushing on him since childhood. He deemed her off limits because of the age limit, but finds her just as irresistible as she finds him. How will they make this work? You have to read the story to find out. I recommend that you do:)

It was really wonderful!

EXCERPT 

 

                “Climb gates around here often?” he asked, no censure in his voice. I realized he spoke English as fluently as he spoke Spanish.

               He was clad in navy basketball shorts, a pair of Nike running shoes and he was just sweaty enough for me to realize he’d likely been working out. I swear I was hypnotized by all of his exposed skin, so much so that I could just about remember my own name at that moment. I’d have blamed the fall for my dazed and confused frame of mind but that wasn’t it at all. It was purely because of him—the sexy Spanish-speaking god who’d saved me from certain harm. My eyes trailed along his muscular but lean body hungrily as I catalogued just how ridiculously gorgeous he was. I was hypnotized by his six-pack and the set of V-cut muscles I had an insane urge to trail my fingers over.

               I’d have kept right on staring had he not cleared his throat. I cringed as I came back to reality and realized he’d asked a question I hadn’t retained.

               “Um, huh?” I asked, perfectly clueless.

               “I was asking if you’re a professional gate climber,” he said huskily.

               “No, I—”

               “She’s really fine after a fall from that height?” the officer asked as he came through the gate.

               “She never hit the ground,” my savior said, “since I caught her.”

               The cop looked almost as impressed as I felt. I’d have heaped praised onto the stranger who saved me had I not remembered that I needed to be focused on a more pressing concern.

               “So now that I’m on this side I really need to get my—”

               The officer pinned me with a look that left no doubt that he was in charge. “Miss, please remain silent while I work out what’s going on here.”

               I pursed my lips and tried to contain my annoyance. I knew he was just doing his job but all I cared about was finding Elvis.

               The officer turned back to the Spanish model—I naturally assumed he modeled because he looked like he belonged in sensual looking black and white ads for men’s cologne. You know the kind of ads I’m talking about, right? There’s always a sexy guy giving you the let’s have all the sex look with a set of eyes that are clearly attempting to hypnotize you into buying something.

                He was at least six feet tall and had a head full of thick, dark hair. His face was perfectly proportioned from forehead to chin, and I could find nothing that didn’t appear to be symmetrical. He had a ridiculously sexy closely trimmed beard that I wanted to trace with my fingers and his jaw was the sexiest thing I’d ever seen. I turned crimson when my eyes trailed up and met his and I realized he was observing me—which meant he knew I’d been staring at him. Again.

               I bit my lip and tried not to blush as I blinked like an idiot. I was relieved to have a reason to look to the police officer when he cleared his throat to get our attention. “Are you the one who called about the disturbance down the side of the house?” he asked.

               I couldn’t resist the urge to let my eyes wander back to the Spanish god. I knew just enough Spanish to determine that if his looks were rated on the salsa scale he’d be called el más caliente.

               His eyes were on me as he answered the cop. “My brother called, yes.”

               “What’s your name, sir?”

               “Alejandro Cruz.”

               Even his name was sexy. My skin felt hot and prickly under his gaze. Anxious for a reprieve, I looked back to the officer.

               The cop nodded as he took note of it on his pad. “And your brother’s name?”

               “Rafael Cruz.”

               “And you?” the cop asked with a head nod toward me.

               “Kaya Porter.”

               “Can you spell that?”

               “K-a-y-a,” I answered.

               “That’s a weird name,” the officer said as he wrote it down.

               I wasn’t sure if he was being rude or not so I shrugged and said nothing. Alejandro growled something under his breath that I couldn’t understand. A shiver went down my back at the way the words rolled off his tongue. His Spanish accent fascinated me. I’d never been one to care one way or the other about a man’s voice, but his did things to me. I wondered if audio erotica was a thing. If it were, I would pay a subscription fee to hear him talk all day.

               “So were you trying to escape or get in?” the officer asked, ruining my good fantasy about an Alejandro Cruz dirty talk subscription service.

               “I was trying to get in,” I answered stiffly, annoyed that the officer had already forgotten everything I’d said, “I told you—”

               “No, no, she is not the disturbance,” Alejandro interjected. “My brother thought someone was trying to steal God only knows what from the exterior of the house. He was asleep and heard something outside his bedroom window and panicked. He shouldn’t have called the police—it’s animal control that we need. Some dickhead bird went through the trash that my brother forgot to secure and he’s been leading him on one hell of a chase around the yard.”

              My eyes narrowed and my hands went to my hips as I stared down the model. “Don’t talk about my little buddy like that,” I snapped.

BLURB
Once upon a time, I thought love was a fairytale.
My prince was a Beast with blood on his hands and ice in his veins. My family offered to save me. The only price: leaving the tattered pieces of my heart behind.
Our love was irrational. Cruel. Unforgiving. Nothing like the storybooks said it should be—but it was perfect.
The longer we were apart, the more I lost myself. He was vicious and domineering, but I craved the submission. Together we were destructive, but I was addicted to the devastation. Still, I thought titles mattered. To my family I was princess, and to the Beast I was slave. I was too naïve to understand that even though he’d been my captor, he’d broken the shackles on my soul.
Once upon a time, I thought love meant happily ever after.
Now I know better.

Wild for you

RELEASE BOOSTTitle: Wild For You

Author: J.C. Reed

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: September 4, 2017

 

BLURB

 

I’m an average girl.

He’s a famous bull rider.

He doesn’t know that I’m into him.

 

The first time Cash Boyd locks eyes with Erin Stone, sparks fly, and not only the clutch-at-your-sheets kind. There is something about Erin that makes him want to push her away while at the same time drives him wild for her. He’s a man of many things, but being helpless at the hands of a woman isn’t one of them. Finding himself at her mercy, he intends to make her job as hard as possible for her. 

 

Burning with desire for the one man who’s the shadow to her light, Erin gives in to Cash’s advances…even though she could be destroyed by the truth she’s afraid to disclose. Little does she know that there is also more than meets the eye to Cash and she might just get more than she bargained for.

 

Cash might be the best at taming bulls, but taming her heart could prove to be the greatest challenge of his life.

His eyes shimmer green, boring into me.

He’s beautiful.

Breathtaking.

Unforgettable.

And so deliciously close.

“Cash…” I start, but the words don’t quite find their way past my lips. How can I explain what his touch does to me when I don’t understand it myself?

Our demons best friend

Our demons best friend

By Diana T. Scott
I received an ARC for an honest review.
This was a very sweet read. Two doctors going through residency, fighting through the grief of their past. The story is a gentle journey as they fall in love. Don’t laugh, but the title had me thinking this was a para normal book. So I kept waiting for that turn of events. Never happened lol.
