What I Read Last Week

Posted November 25, 2013 by Tracy in Features | 0 Comments

Well it was a pretty quiet week for me as I’m still playing the role of gimpy girl. 🙂

Yes, still on the crutches but I’m optimistic that when I get re-x-ray’d on Friday the docs will set me free! crosses fingers Since I couldn’t get around much and the crutching exhausts me I wasn’t very active this week. This made for a lot of down time, therefore a bit of reading was done.

What I read:

First up was Dragos Takes a Holiday by Thea Harrison. This was a novella in the Elder Races series and it centered around Dragos Cuelebre and his mate/wife Pia. They head down, with their son Liam, to the Caribbean for a holiday and some treasure hunting. A really good story. You can read my full review here 4 out of 5

Next was How I Met Your Father by LB Gregg. I thought this was gonna be about telling a kid how their fathers met but it was really about a guy who meets someone’s father (don’t worry, the dad’s only 44!) Really great story. You can read my full review here. 4.5 out of 5

Hard As It Gets by Laura Kaye is about an ex-Special Forces team who was discharged from the Army after an ambush that was caused by the CO. The CO was crooked but they were blamed for the FUBAR. When the daughter of the CO looks up one of the SF guys, Nick, he wants nothing to do with Becca and helping her find her brother but he finally agrees. Not only that but he gets the remaining SF guys and what starts out as a search and rescue turns in to a possible way for the men to get their honor back. This was a great story and I really enjoyed it. I’ll post my review this week. 4 out of 5

A Dance in Moonlight by Sherry Thomas was a novella in the Fitzhugh trilogy. In book 2 of the trilogy, Ravishing the Heiress, we see Isabelle Inglewood who was Fitz’s love who he had to reject in order to marry an heiress to save his family’s estate. This story is how Isabelle meets a man who looks just like Fitz which is the initial attraction but she soon finds that Fitzhugh and Fitzwilliam are nothing alike. This was a very romantic novella and I just love the way Thomas brings her characters together. So good. 4 out of 5 (This was originally in the Midnight Scandals anthology)

Rodeo Queen by TJ Kline has rodeo queen and horse trainer, Sydney, getting her dream job. Unfortunately one of the co-owners of the ranch has a love/hate relationship with her. Scott’s not thrilled with Sydney being there but he can’t seem to keep his hands off of her. Unfortunately a past lover might mess up everything that’s between them. This was a good contemp. western. I’ll post my review of this one this week. 3.5 out of 5 

Desperately Seeking Heaven by Jill Steeples has Alice falling in love with Jimmy and vice versa but there’s one hitch…Jimmy’s dead. Yep, Jimmy’s a ghost. The story was very sweet but I couldn’t get over the fact that I was seeing this lovely romance between two people who could never be together. Very frustrating. 3.5 out of 5 (read for Book Binge) 

Last for the week was Kisses, She Wrote by Katharine Ashe and it was really great. Cam is a beautiful man and a rake. Jacqueline is the quiet and plain princess whose family wants to see her married – to the man of their choosing. He reads her diary and falls in love with her. It’s very romantic and I loved it. I’ll post my review for this one next week. 4 out of 5
