AUDIOBOOK REVIEW - Blood & Bitcoin

Image
Chris is an FBI agent who's job it is to infiltrate a criminal organization known as the Hive. He is just the guy for the job, as he has a very dark mind. Only problem once he is accepted in is that he falls for his boss.

Piker is supposed to be a well known and heavily guarded secret. Right away with meeting Chris he has several problems. First, his cover is blown. Second, the attraction is almost too intense. What does he do now?

This was such a fast paced and incredible story. I could not put it down. The main characters are so sexy and their sparks are seriously flying all over! The story itself is intense and even though its dark, extremely compelling. I really enjoyed the heck out of these characters and hope we see them again in further installments of this new Criminal Delights series. 

The narrator, Michael Ferraiuolo, was a joy to listen to.  He had good voice changes for a womans voice, was easy to tell when others were talking, and was a pleasant listen.  I enjoyed the bo…

Mia is having a miserable year.  Her mom is still pushing her to date the boy across the street.  She hasn't been on a real date in a long time.  Maybe fake dating is the answer?
Jake has known Mia his whole life.  Their moms are pushing them to be together because its what they want.  Why isn't anyone asking their kids what they have in mind? One kiss tears the whole plan apart........
This was such a surprise read!  These characters are wonderful and funny.  The banter is top notch.  I loved the parts where they were so in sync you could tell they knew one another forever.  A total slow burn but a thrilling ride.  I give this a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Blog Tour w/Review - Just One Of The Groomsmen

Meet the Author:
Cindi Madsen is a USA Today Bestselling author of contemporary romance and young adult novels. She sits at her computer every chance she gets, plotting revising, and falling in love with her characters. Sometimes it makes her a crazy person. Without it, she’d be even crazier. She has way too many shoes, but can always find a reason to buy a new pretty pair, especially if they’re sparkly, colorful, or super tall. She loves music, dancing, and wishes summer lasted all year long. She lives in Colorado (where summer is most definitely NOT all year long) with her husband and three children. Connect: Site | Facebook | Twitter | Goodreads About the Book: Addison Murphy is the funny friend, the girl you grab a beer with—the girl voted most likely to start her own sweatshirt line. And now that one of her best guy friends is getting married, she’ll add “groomsman” to that list, too. She’ll get through this wedding if it’s the last thing she does. Just don’t ask her to dive for any …

Crispin has been close friends with Wills for a long time.  They have only recently drifted apart due to time and location.  When they get together for holidays its like they never left.
Wills has a hard time expressing himself.  Well, technically they both have their hang ups.  Still being new at this more than friends stuff, they both need to find the courage to tell the other they want more.
I truly became quickly attached to these characters!  This author was a new read for me, but I was sucked in with just a few pages.  This was a short and sweet - yet extremely hot - new story.  I loved the sincerity that came across for these two and I am anticipating more!  I give this a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Surprises

Addison AKA "Murph" is the only girl in her group of friends.  She is one of the guys and she likes it that way.  Why not hang out with those you have more in common?  Well with a wedding to be a part of this could be interesting.

Tucker has always loved his home and his friends.  He misses them and realizes that he is pretty lonely.  When he suddenly notices the body on one of his closest friends he finds he must re-evaluate his priorities.
This was such a fun start to the new series.  I find this author to be a must click - and I will tell you why.  This story, like many of her other books, has great humor, some hijinx, and always a great tale.  Let's not forget the sexy heat and steady pace too.  I give this a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Donald has had a crush on Alaina for a long time.  They have history as both friends and enemies.  Now he has more urgent matter to attend to.  He has a bet to fulfill.
Alaina is afraid to give Donald another chance to be her friend.  He totally blew it the first time.  She cannot help responding to him, she always does.  Now her friends are noticing the difference, and she is not sure she can resist.
Very cute and sweet story.  Has more dark and oddly twisted moments.  Good overall pace, actions, heat and plot.  I enjoyed the banter and wanted to slap some of the background characters.  Felt a lot like I had revisited high school.  I give this a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

This is book #2, in the Madrona Island series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  To avoid spoilers, and to understand the characters and the series better, I recommend reading this series in order.
Alex AKA "Rush" is temporarily banished to an island to learn to calm down.  His team is concerned that he cannot stop his partying ways.  His drinking and playing around is catching up to him.
Rosalind meets Alex for the first time when he comes into her bookstore.  As a sheltered good girl, she does not recognize the Stanley Cup wining player. They clash and hate one another almost instantly.  But there is still a serious attraction on both sides.....
I enjoyed this story.  From start to finish you felt the tension and heat between these two.  I loved the banter and the fact that they truly had a lot in common once they took the time to find out.  I give this a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

This is book #4, in the Returning Home series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader understanding, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this series in order.
Griff finds himself attracted to the most off limits woman.  She is the little sister of his friend.  He also does not do commitment.  Best to avoid her for now.  If only she wasn't so attractive......
Becca has a thing for Griff.  If he could help her with her predicament, things would be so much better for her.  She just needs someone she trusts for a one and done.  As long as nobody starts to have feelings for the other.....
This was a great story.  I loved the banter.  These characters so obviously should be together.  The pace was good, the heat was such a good build, and goes great with the series.  I give this a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Erik asks River to give him a tattoo.  They find they are both attracted and try to see where it goes.  This is hard for Erik since he is often moving around and has trouble with trust.
River does not want to get his hopes up.  He knows Erik is struggling to define himself.  River normally sticks to his routine, however, his longing for Erik puts him at a whole new level.
This book has so much in it.  These characters are seriously in need of one another.  The story can be dark at times.  I actually liked how they were together and found that if I made it past the grit, there was good heat and and friendship.  I give this a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Yes, you read that correctly.

When my mother approached me on my thirty-third birthday with a brochure for egg freezing, it was a glaring reminder that my biological clock is ticking toward its expiration date. I’ve always dreamed of being a mom and had a plan — one that was destroyed when I caught my professional hockey player husband in bed with another woman.

Despite my broken heart I still believe in love. I want the happily ever afte…

Meet the Author:Rebecca Brooks lives in New York City in an apartment filled with books. She received a PhD in English but decided it was more fun to write books than write about them. She has backpacked alone through India and Brazil, traveled by cargo boat down the Amazon River, climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro, explored ice caves in Peru, trekked to the source of the Ganges, and sunbathed in Burma, but she always likes coming home to a cold beer and her hot husband in the Bronx. She likes outdoorsy guys with both muscle and heart and independent women ready to try something new.
