Okay…so this post doesn’t quite follow the same format as the ones from past weeks…I thought I’d tell you about some ebooks I recently read (but didn’t put in the sidebar). For some reason I have been in an ebook mood and have been reading them each night…some of these I have had for quite a while, but never read…here are the ones I have read recently…all are a bit sensual/erotic…just letting you know…they might not be for everyone.
Shelter from the Storm by Lara Williams (or Samantha Sommersby…when doing a search I found it listed under both names…hmmm…my copy has Lara Williams on it with the same cover as the S.S. version)
Anyway…I LOVED this story. Maclain Moore has just agreed to be Jennifer Jones’s roommate when Jennifer gets the news that her estranged mother has died and her much-younger little sister needs her. Mac, a social worker, helps Jennifer deal with the unexpected news. Jennifer struggles with abuse and violence from her past and is not sure she is capable of loving anyone. Mac helps her deal with these things. I thought this story was wonderful and touching. Mac is a great hero and I love how he helps Jennifer see her worth. Both characters grow as individuals and as a couple making for a touching romance.
Love’s Revenge by Monica Burns
This book was a great (and hot) historical! Having been ruined by an ex-fiance and her father when he jilted her (for great reasons), the Devil of Devlyn is surprised when her older sister appears and offers him a chance at something he longs for…revenge. At age 41, Sophie Hamilton is tired of living in the shadow of her younger sister and has given up on love. Seeking her own revenge against her sister and father, she approaches Devlyn with an offer of assistance…if he marries her. I loved the older woman/younger man (Devlyn is 32) aspect of the story. I thought the story was well-done and the characters likeable. There were some very sensual moments that left me a bit breathless (and they weren’t even touching each other in one of them). I loved the epilogue as well…it is probably one of my favorite scenes of the whole book.
California Cowboy by Maggie Casper
This was a good (and hot) contemporary. Clay Bodine is shocked to learn that the new “kid” his brother hired to work on the ranch is actually a female, Bobbie Carlington…one he finds very attractive. Used to doing things her own way and being independent, Bobbie has no use for demanding and controlling men like Clay. Having made up his mind to make Bobbie his, Clay sets out to do just that…but to keep her he just might have to change his ways. I really liked the characters in this book…although at times, I admit, I wanted to smack Clay. It was a good story though and I liked how the relationship changed and grew (as did the characters). I see on the author’s site that there is a sequel featuring the brother, Chance…might have to try and get that one since I really liked him.
Stranded by Arianna Hart
This was a very, very hot and great story! When Ciara agreed to go with her sister to a cabin in the woods she never expected to be stranded there with Ross, her nemesis. Ciara and Ross can’t seem to get along…or forget each other. Now thanks to her sister and his best friend who have grown tired of their bickering, Ciara and Ross find themselves stuck at the cabin for a week with no way to leave. Determined to make the most of the situation, the couple decides to explore other aspects of their relationship and the pleasures the cabin has to offer hoping that once the week is up, they would have gotten the other out of their system…but things don’t always work out as you plan. This was a very HOT read and I really enjoyed the chemistry and relationship between Ciara and Ross.
Yeah, I know I got repetitive in my mini-reviews…sorry…it is late and I am tired and couldn’t think so I am not sure this even makes sense…LOL…I’ll make up for it 😉
