{Release Day Review+Giveaway} Checkmate: This is Dangerous by @KennedyFoxBooks

Checkmate: This is Dangerous is the fifth book in the Checkmate series and the first book in the duet about Logan and Kayla. The checkmate series is by the fantastic writing duo known as Kennedy Fox. No one seems to know the identity of this mysterious author duo, but I am offering a reward of endless sprinkle donuts if someone can tell me who they are. I promise, I am very good at keeping a secret. 😉 😉 I read, and totally LOVED loved loved all of the Checkmate stories. Books 1 and 2 are Viola and Travis’ story, and books 3 and 4 are Drew and Courtney‘s story, and books 5 and 6 are Logan and Kayla’s story. You can read any one of the duets first, but they are all so wonderful, you are going to want to read them all! So if you are new to the series, I recommend reading them all in order. This is Dangerous was a fantastic read, but it will leave you right on the… Read more »

{Review} The Right Ranger by Donna Michaels

{Review} The Right Ranger by Donna Michaels

The Right Ranger is the third book in the Men of At Ease Ranch series by Donna Michaels. I have  not read either of the first two books, but we did get to see glimpses of the two couples from those books, and I really liked them, so I might eventually go back and read their stories. As for Haley and Cord’s story. I liked it. It was a super quick read for me. Easy to digest in one short sitting, but I didn’t love it if I am honest with myself. It was a good read, but not much more than that. Cord is Haley’s deceased husband’s best friend. But the whole book Haley is carrying this burden of her husband’s secrets. Honestly, it was really intriguing for me. I knew some of what he did, but the way Haley spoke about it, I felt like there was way more than we were being kept in the dark about. I was super interested to find out what all of the… Read more »

{Review} TALK BRITISH TO ME by @RobinBielman @EntangledPub

{Review} TALK BRITISH TO ME by @RobinBielman @EntangledPub

  Talk British to Me is the first book in the Wherever you Go series by author Robin Bielman. I have really enjoyed a lot of Robin’s other books, so I was pretty set on reading this one when it came out. But then I read the summary for it and I was totally hooked. An American man that poses as a British dating guy to stay anonymous for his popular dating talk show. And a young lady who has a huge crush on said british talk show host, but meets the american version in real life and non-dating hijinks ensue. Umm, yes please! Talk British to Me is told in dual narrative between Teague and Mateo. I really liked both of the main characters a lot. We got to know them each really well and I loved the slow burn of their relationship. They are great friends first and foremost, even if Mateo wanted to date her pretty much from day one. Well, maybe date is not the right word…… Read more »
