When a Scot ties the knot #tessadare #romance

When a Scot ties the knot by Tessa Dare

Opinion
I picked this book because I knew it would be throughly entertaining. I have read several books by Tessa Dare and her heroines are a breath of fresh air. Maddie was no different.

The plot alone had me chuckling. From the moment Maddie saw Logan and he was seemingly going along with her farce of a courtship, I knew this was good stuff.

Maddie was a socially awkward person and trying to figure out how to extricate herself from this web of lies she created. When she thinks she has fortified her heart against falling for Logan, he does things that are unexpected and absolutely swoon worthy. I know how she felt.

Gotta to love a guy that reads ❤️

Logan had a rough life and through Mattie’s letters he was able to cope with the horrors of war. He thinks he is heartless and undeserving of anything good in life. I like that his emotional vulnerability was addressed and Maddie could fully understand him.

Though their relationship started as a lie, the reality ended up being much better than either could have anticipated.

TOW Final Word: Buy, Borrow, Pass?
BUY. You will laugh at their banter and the secondary characters enhance the story greatly.

Chameleon #alienromance #carabristol


Chameleon ❤️❤️❤️❤️
Synopsis

Young widow Kevanne Girardi catches sight of a meteorite streaking across the sky and wishes for a good handyman to help make her rundown lavender farm a big success. Instead, she gets a shapeshifting alien who apparently has never seen a leaky faucet before. But his loving and noble spirit make him just the man to fix her wounded heart. He hasn’t promised her forever, but a girl can hope, can’t she? Maybe she’ll make another wish…

When his ship tumbles out of the sky and lands on Earth, Chameleon never expects to fall for a human woman. Unfortunately, he can’t stay. He made a mistake that led to the devastation of an entire planet, and now the survivors are depending on him to get them to safety. He must repair his ship and leave before the Xeno Consortium finds him and Earth becomes endangered, too. But oh, he wishes he could stay with Kevanne forever…

Can a twist of fate make their wishes come true?

Opinion

I received an advanced copy in exchange for my honest opinion.

A new group of aliens! That means a new group of guys to find their soul mates and receive their happy ever after.

Chameleon is a alien called Xeno and does not have the best background considering his raise just committed genocide by destroying an entire planet. He has a conscience and that’s why he is on the run with some of the aliens that he was able to save. But The fear that his people will come and destroy earth makes him not want to get too close to Kevanne but at the same time he is drawn to her. While he enjoys what they have, he does not think he deserves in this way.

Kevanne had a very toxic previous relationship and she is being very cautious even though Chamaeleon seems like the perfect man. While she is exploring this relationship, she is still hesitant. She is developing and finding herself and in that, trying to make sure she avoid making the same mistakes she made in her first relationship.

Their story was so sweet because here are two damaged people that are tentative about exploring love end it happens anyway. And the circumstances work out so that they can be together.

TOW Final Word: Buy, Borrow, Pass?

Buy. By the end, I was happy at the resolution but sad it was over.

Nightfall – Nightmare Dragon #terrybolryder #romance #KU

Nightfall by Terry Bolryder

Opinion

I was gifted this book in hopes I would provide an honest review.

I was eagerly awaiting the receipt of this book because the first book in this series was so exciting to me. This series about nightmare dragons presents a different type of hero, and I am coming to terms with how much I love them.

We first meet Dare in the previous book when he kidnapped his brothers mate. Of course, we know that all of his anger and angst is just because he is misunderstood and lonely.
He has been trying to navigate the world for the last hundred years and while he does it somewhat successfully, he has something missing. It is hard not to root for a guy that has not had it easy in life. Early on I realized, that for all his bravado, he was a man who was lonely and did not want to put himself out there because he was scared of being vulnerable.

Sasha is always picking the wrong type of guy. It is because she has such a big heart and she is trying to give everyone the benefit of the doubt. Most of all, she truly believes in the power of love. However, after her last horrible dating experience that ended up with her boyfriend at the time becoming nightmare dragon food, she has decided to give relationships a break. And while she knows that Dare is emotionally unavailable and totally not the person for her, she cannot help but to be drawn to him.

If you read Nathan‘s story (Midnight) , you know something about their affliction that Dare erroneously assumes for most of the book. I love it when the reader knows something that the character doesn’t.

TOW Final Word: Buy, Borrow, Pass?
BUY. Overall, I loved it. Like I said, I read it multiple times already.

Speed Mating #KU #shifterromance

Speed Mating – A Midnight Liaisons – Jessica Sims

Opinion
I did not get the sense in the beginning of the book that Estrella and Vic would get together. They didn’t seem as though they were interested in each other. They appear to care only for her well-being because he was her alpha.
Estrella seem to be very insecure because she was a mix between a lion and a tiger. Plus, she was supposedly sterile. It started to get repetitive to me. We get it. She is 6 feet tall and looks slightly intimidating. But that was mentioned over and over.
When she finally decided to drive her self at Vic I thought she could have done it differently. Maybe her heat was making her crazy and weird.

TOW Final Word: Buy, Borrow, Pass?
BORROW. Overall, the book was okay but I wish it had been longer and had more substance.

Being Brooke by Emma Hart #romance #review #bookaddict #KU

Being Brooke by Emma Hart

Synopsis
My name is Brooke Barker…
And I’m a freaking disaster.
No, seriously. I’m a college drop-out working a dead-end job, my best friend Carly’s dog gets more action than I do, and I have more bad dates in my diary than there are movie remakes.
Not to mention I’m completely and utterly in love with Cain Elliott.
The problem? He’s in a relationship. With a girl who’s so plastic she makes Barbie cry herself to sleep with jealousy.
The second problem? He’s my best friend.
My shut-up-and-put-on-Harry-Potter, yes-this-is-your-shirt, help-I-have-no-power, crap-I’m-out-of-tampons, kinda best friend.
And that’s all he can be, right?
Right.

Opinion
Brooke is loud, brash, and snarky. I should have loved her. Instead I was annoyed. I could not understand why she seem so intent on sabotaging the relationship.

Brooke’s life tip number one is “don’t fall for your best friend”. It is too bad that she already did that. She could have embraced it, but she was so sure they would not succeed as a couple. As a result, she was all over the place and it seem to me that she was being extremely weird.

Cain was cute but super clueless. I cannot see how it was possible for him to be that dense. Everyone else seems to know Brooke was madly in love with him while he obliviously is dating someone else. They wonder how long Brooke will carry a torch for him. When he finally finds out that Brooke wants more, I thought he was extremely patient to deal with all of her antics.

The supporting characters made this book for me.

TOW Final Word: Buy, Borrow, Pass?
BORROW. I loved Cain in a he-is-too-cute kind of way. Brooke was too annoying for me.
