-Letter O- Ready, Willing and Abel- @AprilAtoZ #atozchallenge #romance

O is for O’Rourke (Sarah O’Rourke)

Ready, Willing and Abel 

Patience had a one night stand with Abel a few years ago. Unfortunately for her, Abel did not perform at his best that night. Begging for a do-over, Abel is trying to convince Patience that he can be better than what she thinks she knows of him.

This time, while Patience is looking short term, Abel is playing for keeps.

This is a LONG book. I saw how many pages it was and thought that there had to be a lot of extra stuff at the end. I have not read many books these days that fit into the “saga” category for me.

I read Cain’s Salvation which introduced the family to me. The McKinnon daughters are Harmony, Faith, Patience, and Honor. You do not have to read Faith (Cain’s Salvation) in order to understand this book. It helps for context, but not required. I skipped Harmony’s story, but I want to go back and read it when I have 5 hours to dedicate to it (no exaggeration).

On to the plot…

First of all, I loved Abel. For an alpha male, he had no problem apologizing and acknowledging when he was wrong. Plus, he had to have a lot of patience to deal with Patience.

She wrecked my nerves a few times. Then, when I was almost at the point of being done with her, she explains why she is such a commitment phobe. I still was not ready to forgive her for constantly insulting Abel’s manhood though.

There is so much detail to this story that I feel like I know these people. I am laughing with them and cheering when things go well.

As much as I complained to myself about the length of this book, I could understand why it was so packed with information necessary for the plot and ongoing story line of the series. I skipped the second book, but I am going back to read it so that I can get to Honor’s story. I have a feeling it is going to be the best of all of them.

TOW Final Word: Buy, Borrow, Pass?
I say BUY. I bought the whole series and I am not disappointed. It is worth it.

When Time Stops: Dragon Shifter Surprise Pregnancy Romance


Aeon is a time dragon living in France. His brothers tricked him out of protecting the family’s lair and treasure for the year. He decides he will use the time to travel. At his first stop, he visits on of the family’s many night clubs. He meets Isobel and they have a one night stand.

Isobel is on her honeymoon vacation minus the groom. He left her at the altar. She is determined to have some fun. The hot and heavy attraction with Aeon fits the bill. After their night of fun, Isobel is kidnapped and made the prize in a dragon tournament.

Aeon usually avoids these tournaments because he thinks they are too barbaric for modern times, but he enters because he feels that he owes it to Isobel to win her freedom.

This book brought the dragon heat early! From the moment they saw each other in the night club, I could feel the intensity of their connection radiate off the page.

I still don’t understand how a time dragon can bend time, but it worked for the story.
Isobel held her own despite everything her narcissistic mother, philandering fiance, and the whole kidnapping ordeal with a lot of horny dragons drooling over her.

All the dragon fighting brought a medieval vibe to the story even though it happened in modern era. Throughout the different challenges, nothing goes totally as expected. There were even a few plot twists that threw me for a loop.

I am talking about things in addition to the surprise pregnancy. It is too cute when she tells him that she is pregnant. That makes me smile just thinking about it.
