Mine

Image
This is book #2, in the San Francisco Thunder series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader enjoyment and understanding, I recommend reading this series in order.

Dixie is working in the publicist department for this amazing hockey franchise, she finds there are rules that restrict her personal life.  Rules she is willing to live by - to achieve her goals.  Until it runs into her current guy.

Elijah is excited to be working with his brother's team.  It is like a dream come true.  He is extremely attracted to an employee, who is afraid for her job if they get together.  He has his own demons from the past, and forging a future currently seems like an uphill climb.

This was such an amazing addition to the series!  I loved the characters right from the beiginning.  Their banter, the tease, the sparks.... oh my!  This was a joy to read.  I laughed right along, and felt riveted when with each new page.  I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Healing

Hagen already had to learn to live without Mitch once.  With him back in town, he was telling everyone who would listen there would never be that happening again.  He still has Ash telling him to give him a chance. 

Mitch knows he has grown up and is not the same person he was at high school graduation.  He now understands that living without Hagen - is not really living.  Can he convince him to forgive, and show him he is ready to finally begin their life together?

This story was so sweet.  I felt every emotion and character development as I read.  I eagerly turned the pages, and was not disappointed.  I hope to see these characters again.  They had such great chemistry, and the heat together was scalding!  I give this book a 5/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Cover Reveal - Man Card

SUMMARY: Nothing ventured, nothing banged... Ash I still don't know how it happened. One minute I was arguing with my arrogant competitor--our usual trash-talk over who deserves the larger commission. But somehow I went from throwing down to kneeling down...  It can never happen again. I don't even like Braht. He's too slick. He's a manipulating mansplaining party boy in preppy clothes. So why can't I get him out of my head?  Braht There are two things I know without question. One: Ash and I are destined for each other. Two: never trust a man with a unibrow. Ash is my missing my piece. She's the sweet cream to my gourmet espresso. And nothing gets me going faster than her contempt for me. They don't call her the Ashkicker for nothing.  Eventually I'll win her over...if my past doesn't ruin everything first.

This is book #2, in The McClendon Holiday series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader enjoyment and understanding of the series, I recommend reading in order.
Jennifer is suffering from a broken heart and being ashamed.  She travels for a vacation and meets the man who will change her perception of the world, as she knows it.  Will she be able to turn to him when it counts?
Simeon falls head over heels for Jennifer almost immediately.  They are certainly attracted to one another from the start.  When tragedy strikes - can he be forgiven?
This was a book that was filled with so much.  The compelling story tells of how real and harsh the world can be.  These characters find love in such a beautiful place.  I love the heat and the simple that are in this book.  I cannot wait to read the next installment to the series.  I give this a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

This is book # 5, in the Henderson's Ranch series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  While entertaining, the whole make up of the story and characters will make more sense if read in order with the Nightstalkers series as well.

Patrick is learning he loves to be a cowboy.  He had planned to make films, but the best laid plans tend to go awry.  He loves his current job and location.  Now he is falling for someone who may not need him and may not stay.

Lauren is having to adjust being former military.  After disaster struck, she is brought to the ranch to meet some familiar characters.  (Mark & Emily)  We learn that while she is trying to adjust to civilian life just days after discharge.... there may be more options than she is aware of.  Falling for a cowboy was not in the plans but - plans change.

This was such a great read!  I loved having my favorite and familiar characters here.  It felt like home.  I was so pleased to see how some of them were …

This book is #6, in the Shots On Goal series.  It is intended to be read as a standalone novel.  For reader enjoyment and to avoid spoilers, I would read this series in order.
Sean has a rough job.  Good thing he has amazing friends.  When he gets a new partner, the last thing he expects to be is attracted and have feelings for her.  He knows if he acts on those feelings, they will be separated.
Jessica is excited to have such a great partner.  He respects her, and even invited her to meet his friends.  Only one problem - she is attracted to him.  She can never act on it unless she wants to get a new partner.
This book moves at such a fast pace!  I found myself confused as to the arrangement of it at some times.  I think the series as a whole will put more perspective on what I felt I missed.  There is lots of good humor, friendship, and even sexy times.  I look forward to finishing the rest of the series to come.  I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

This book is #9 in the Game On In Seattle series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader enjoyment and understanding, I recommend reading this series in order.
Matt has so much on his plate right now.  He is trying to get into the playoffs with his team, he has an ex trying to con him for money, he has no nanny for his boys, and the boys themselves are a handful.  All he needs is to be attracted to the woman who is wrong for him.  
Violet has a past full of secrets.  She is not real good around kids.  Matt puts her body on fire, so she wants a chance at a non-relationship with him.  If he can stop fighting and just give in.....
This story was a good read.  It has characters we love making cameo appearances too.  While it did feel like it was a bit rushed to me, I loved that the characters had excellent banter.  The overall pace was good, and there is such sexy humor you cannot help but love this series.  I give this story 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
