Constant by Rachel Higginson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I’m part thrilled, part frustrated over where I find myself at the end of CONSTANT. I’m certainly glad
Rachel Higginson made the decision to make this a duet because this an in-depth and intense story. I have to say that end is rather abrupt and felt a little unplanned but I am in utter suspense for what will happen in CONSEQUENCE. As ever, Rachel Higginson can write so well but new fans from her previous two novels (The Opposite of Us etc) will find CONSTANT a little different, a walk on the darker side. The good news is she executed this story well.

The setting for CONSTANT is a Russian crime family/brotherhood. Caroline had no choice in being drawn into a life of crime, she was born into it and she made a superb con artist. Sayer, a boy off the streets, finds food and employment with the Bratva. These two grew through their adolescence together and the story finds them apart many years later. I was com…

El Santo by M. Robinson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

El Santo is up at the top of my favorite M. Robinson books.

I didn't know what twisty path she was taking me on but followed willingly and was blown away. I must admit I am bit in hate with Ms. Robinson at the moment for the ending. I will leave you to find out for yourself.

Damien wanted a life that was not to be for him. He is smart, resourceful and gorgeous...did I mention hot? He does the best he can with the life that has been forced upon him.

Amira, what a great character. She is pretty much perfect. The sweet young girl, to a confident young woman. Sassy and smart. Loyal and dedicated. Loving and wise beyond her young years.

El Santo resonated in my black little heart and I loved it. I wait on tenterhooks for the resolution of this story. I hate Ms. Robinson just a tad, okay so freaking pissed off at her for making me wait. If the story hadn't been so awesome I would probably say mean things, well …

Rock Solid by Carly Phillips
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Life takes an interesting turn when Connor Prescott and Katie Kaswell flights are delayed due to a snowstorm. Connor happened to get one of the very last hotel rooms available, which turned out to be a suite with 2 bedrooms. He offers to share with Katie. Katie is reeling from a 'surprise' from her boyfriend when she showed up unexpectantly for Valentine's.

She would like nothing more than to forget and to feel desired. She wants a one night stand with Connor. A one night stand if something that Connor doesn't want. He plans to change Katie's mind but when he wakes up the next morning she's gone.

Neither one of them knows the other's last name. Both have never forgotten the other. Fate has Katie finding Connor four years later. She gives life changing news to Connor. I highly commend Katie for contacting Connor. She could of very easily never told him.

Connor has great integrity. He…

At Your Service by Lexi Blake
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Javi and Jules story had some elements that were vastly different which is a nice change. Jules is a military vet amputee, which I have not seen before and I really liked that the female vets, amputee or not, were getting some heroine cred.

Jules has some issues, besides the obvious, that I really didn't get in the big scheme of things but seriously liked her character nonetheless. She is feisty and confident (at least on the outside). I admire her independence and resilience.

Javi is ex-military as well. He is a manwhore extraordinaire, or was. He is ready for something serious and has his sights set on Jules. These two took a bit to figure out all their miscommunication or lack of communication but found their HEA.

I enjoyed getting to hear from some of the characters from previous stories I have read.

Ms. Blake writes a great story and I enjoy her heroes and heroines. The Masters and Mercenaries seri…

Single Daddy Scot by Donna Alam
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Well Ms. Donna, you've done it again. Every time I think, that was my favorite, you give me another. I super serious this time, I love Single Daddy Scot.

Firstly, and most importantly, the Scots just do it for me. Secondly, Mac is just the bomb.

I was to be in Scotland last week and unfortunately had to cancel my trip, but I had told my hubs I was going to find me a Scot in a kilt and I wasn't coming home. He laughed being used to my nonsense, but I was absolutely not jesting.

Lucky for me, Donna serves me one right up in Mac. I love his humor. I am big fan of funny and all the books in this series have such great "laugh out loud" dialogue. I love Mac's dirty mouth. I could listen to him spout naughty thoughts for hours...days....years. That accent, ladies, I could hear it in my head as I read. Swoon.

Ella is such a great heroine. She had some rough times in a bad relationship and st…

The Outliers by T.M. Frazier
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I was looking forward to this second book of The Outskirts Duet, but unfortunately for me, it didn't hit the mark for a great conclusion. At times I felt it was rushed and flat which made it lose its edginess. There were other elements that dragged it down for me too. As much as I loved Finn, and I really did, the interaction between him and Sawyer was too ardent and felt over played and overdone. Storyline factual's are a big thing for me, and I felt there were inconsistencies with the medical issues and legal system areas. All of these made for me to roll my eyes at certain points within this novel because it was annoying.

Things I did enjoy about the whole series was the strong family connection. That always makes me smile. And there was plenty of banter between Josh and Miller & Finn and Critter that kept me entertained. Maybe if I read this duet all at once I may have a better rating, …

Most Eligible Bastard by Annika Martin

The blurb on this book grabbed me from the get-go and there were a few laughs to be had. What did work for me was Vicki (and Smuckers): she was a great character with a backbone who didn't back down easily. What didn't work for me was Henry: sometimes his words showed little or no respect for Vicky (behind her back) and I couldn't accept it. I really wanted to love this book but I just couldn't. I'm giving it two stars for the laughs.

*arc received in exchange for honest review.
