Feasted On: Montana Born Brides Series, Book 3

- This is an ARC book - Available Formats through Amazon: Kindle Edition - File Size: 897 KB | Expected Release Date: May 18, 2015 | Publisher: Tule Publishing : Montana Born Books | Obtained: NetGalley

"Bride by Mistake" [Montana Born Brides Series, Book 3] by Nicole Helm

Author's Book Description : Out now from Tule Publishing! Part of the Montana Born Brides continuity–six books centering around preparations for a celebrity wedding in Marietta, Montana (each book written by a different author). (The books can stand alone, though Bride by Mistake is particularly linked with "Finally His Bride" by Maisey Yates)

Wedding fever has hit the little town of Marietta…

And Kaitlin Shuller’s groom is marrying someone else.

Worst day ever. The man of her dreams is making vows to another woman. Her heart is broken, and all her carefully laid plans destroyed. Enter Beckett Larson, her older brother’s best friend and a very good bad decision.

Beckett has spent his life trying to outrun his bad reputation, but everyone already thinks the worst of him, so when Kaitlin offers herself to him — virginity and all— he just can’t say no.

But one night together has permanent consequences, and this time Beckett knows he can’t outrun his bad boy reputation. He’s determined to make Kaitlin his bride…even if he has to seduce her down the aisle.

My Book Review : 4.5 out of 5 stars! Would-be enemies get close one night, find common ground, and end up creating more between them than they had originally planned. However, will being together be what they both want and need or will other "plans" get in their way?

Captivated from beginning to end by the noble bad boy winning over his long time secret love interest. Beckett and Kaitlin (Kate) are oil and water at times but in the end, they made one another become a better people in the long run. Once Beckett gave up on running away, he turned into a doting man who I swooned over more than once. The only thing that was hard to read about was Kate's aloofness/denial to her over feelings towards Beckett. Nevertheless, I am happy with how Kate stepped up and the ending turned out. This read definitely turned into one of my favorites from Marietta.

I highly recommend this novel to those looking for a quick contemporary romance!

"Why are you avoiding my question?" Because he couldn't inventory all the reasons he insisted on calling her Kate, on getting under her skin.
Because I can, and no one else does.
Yes, that was his secret thrill. He could irritate the polish off Kaitlin Shuller. A badge he'd mentally given himself the summer after tenth grade when he'd realized she didn't treat anyone else like she treated him. While a lot of people treated him badly, Kaitlin had stood out. Because it never felt like it was about him or where he came from or what he did, her issues with him were hers. ~ within Chapter 2

Authors' Book Description :
    Three novellas and an unforgettable short story, now available together in one festive package!

    A Cowboy For Christmas by Katherine Garbera

    Annie Prudhomme never expected to be back in Marietta, MT and her family is fond of reminding her that she left them and the town behind in search of better things. A humiliating divorce that cost her everything she’d gained has driven her back home and her family isn’t about to welcome her back into the fold. She’s in town to rebuild the old home that she inherited and to move on once again.

    Carson Scott never forgot Annie or the way she left. Now that she’s back in town he’s realizing that the old flame still burns hot but he can’t risk his heart the way he did last time now that he has his son to think about it. Being trapped together during a December snowstorm gives them a chance to rekindle their romance but is Annie back for good or is she just looking for a cowboy for Christmas?

    Christmas at Copper Mountain by Jane Porter

    Since the loss of her family in a plane crash, Harley Diekerhoff has led a quiet life and keeps to herself. Taking the temporary job at the Copper Mountain Ranch as widower Brock Sheenan’s housekeeper seems perfect for her. But her calm cocoon is invaded with the arrival of Brock’s pre-teen twins, Mack and Molly who’ve never experienced a proper Christmas and before she knows it, Harley’s determined to make their holiday perfect.

    Annoyed at first by Harley’s interference, Brock is secretly pleased she’s changed Mack and Molly’s world. It doesn’t hurt that he finds Harley incredibly attractive, fierce, smart and passionate. It’s also an added bonus that she’s not afraid to challenge him and get his blood heated! But when sparks fly and the attractions sizzles between them, Harley’s not so sure she can handle something permanent with this dark, taciturn cowboy who doesn’t know how to let her in. But Brock is determined to hold on to her and praying for a Christmas miracle...

    Home For Christmas by Melissa McClone

    Ginger, nutmeg and cinnamon.

    Rachel Murphy loves the scent of gingerbread baking almost as much as she enjoys creating custom edible houses at Christmastime. But she needs a bigger kitchen if she wants to make the most of her impromptu holiday business.

    Enter Nate Vaughn, handsome venture capitalist turned Montana dude ranch owner and her brother’s boss. Nate’s commercial kitchen is perfect for the baker. And he thinks she might be perfect for him...as a business partner.

    After being burned by a celebrity baker, Rachel’s wary of Nate’s interest in her gingerbread houses, not to mention his mistletoe kisses. She should leave the Bar V5 ranch and return to Arizona. Or can Nate convince her she’s already home?

    Mistletoe Magic by Melissa McClone

    Spending a quiet Christmas housesitting and reading novels about hot cowboys sounds perfect to Caitlin. Until a stray kitten brings her face-to-face with Noah, her crush from college. Watching the handsome vet in action melts Caitlin's heart and brings back long-forgotten emotion. She would be safer back at the house lost in the pages of a book. But a toe-curling mistletoe kiss tempts her to stay. Maybe she won't be spending this Christmas...alone.

    Veterinarian Noah Sullivan isn't a Scrooge, but the Christmas Eve tradition of hanging mistletoe in the clinic's waiting room annoys him. Kissing doesn't belong at the Copper Mountain Animal Hospital. Noah rethinks his position when Caitlin Butler arrives with a stray kitten she found freezing in the snow. All he wants now is to maneuver the pretty preschool teacher under the mistletoe. If he's not careful, he'll wind up on Santa's naughty list.

Book Excerpt from Ms. Porter's "Christmas at Copper Mountain" :

“You okay, Miss Diekerhoff?”

Turning quickly, potato skins still dripping, Harley blinked back tears as she spotted Brock Sheenan standing by the fireplace, warming his hands.

Brock was a big man. He was tall–six one or two—with broad shoulders, a wide muscular chest, and shaggy black hair.

Harley’s late husband, David, was Portuguese and darkly handsome, but David was always groomed and polished while the Montana rancher seemed disinclined to comb his hair, or bother with a morning shave.

The truth was, Brock Sheenan looked like a pirate, and never more so than now, with tiny snow flakes clinging to his wild hair and shadowed jaw.

“I’m fine,” she said breathlessly, embarrassed. “I didn’t hear you come in.”

“The faucet was on.” He rubbed his hands together, the skin red and raw. “You’re not....crying...are you?”

She heard the uncomfortable note in his voice and cringed a little. “No,” she said quickly, straightening and squaring her shoulders as she dumped the potato peels into the garbage. “Everything’s wonderful.”

“So you’re not crying?”

“No,” she repeated crisply, drying her hands. “Just peeling potatoes for dinner.”

Her gaze swept his big frame, seeing the powdered snow still clinging to the hem of his wrangler jeans peeking beneath his leather chaps and white glitter dusting his black brows. His supple leather chaps weren’t for show. It was frigid outside and he’d spent the week in the saddle driving the last herds of cattle from the back country to the valley down below so the cows could take shelter beneath trees. “Can I get you something?”

“You don’t happen to have any coffee left from this morning that you could heat up?”

“I can make a fresh pot,” she said, grabbing the glass carafe to fill it with water. “Want regular or decaf?”

He glanced at the clock mounted on the wall above the door and then out the window where the snow flurries were thickening, making it almost impossible to see the tall pine trees marking one corner of the yard. “Leaded,” he said. “Make it strong, too. It’s going to be a late night for me.”

She added the coffee grounds, and then hit the brew button. “You’re heading back out?”

“I’m going to ride back up as soon as I get something warm in me. Thought I’d take some of the breakfast coffee cake with me. If there was anything left.”

“There is.” She’d already wrapped the remaining slices in foil. He wasn’t one to linger over meals, and he didn’t like asking for snacks between meals, either. If he wanted something now, it meant he wouldn’t be back anytime soon. But it was already after four. It’d be dark within the hour. “It’s snowing hard.”

“I won’t be able to sleep tonight if I don’t do a last check. The boys said we’ve got them all but I keep thinking we’re missing one or two of the young ones. Have to be sure before I call it a night.”

Harley reached into a cupboard for one of the thermoses she sent with Brick on his early mornings. “What time will you want dinner?”

“Don’t know when I’ll be back. Could be fairly late, so just leave a plate in the oven for me. No need for you to stay up.” He bundled his big arms across his even bigger chest, a lock of thick black hair falling down over his forehead to shadow an equally dark eye.

There was nothing friendly or approachable about Brock when he stood like that. His wild black hair, square jaw, and dark piercing gaze that gave him a slightly threatening air, but Harley knew better. Men, even the most dangerous men, were still mortal. They had goals, dreams, needs. They tried, they failed. They made mistakes. Fatal mistakes.

“Any of the boys going with you?” she asked, trying to sound casual as she wrapped a generous wedge of cheddar cheese in foil, and a hunk of the summer sausage he liked, so he’d have something more substantial than coffee cake for his ride.

He shook his head, then dragged a large calloused hand through the glossy black strands in a half-hearted attempt to comb the tangled strands smooth. “No.”

She gave him a swift, troubled look.

He shrugged. “No point in putting the others in harm’s way.”

Her frown deepened. “What if you get into trouble?”

“I won’t.”

She arched her brows.

She ought to be intimidated by this shaggy beast of a man, but she wasn’t. She’d had a husband—a daring, risk taking husband of her own—and his lapse in judgment had cost them all. Dearly.

“It’s dangerous out there,” she said quietly. “You shouldn’t go alone.”

Made the Grade: Secrets of Cherry Lake Series / The Jackson Family Legacy, Book 2

- This is an ARC book - Available Formats through Amazon: Kindle Edition - File Size: 548 KB | Expected Release Date: August 24, 2015 | Publisher: Tule Publishing : Montana Born Books | Obtained: NetGalley

"The Secret Son" [Secrets of Cherry Lake Series / The Jackson Family Legacy, Book 2] by Joan Kilby (Note: "The Secret Son" is another name for "The Montana Son.")

Author's Book Description : A birthday card out of the blue from his estranged father sends successful Seattle marketing man Alex Chernoff on a detour to Cherry Lake in search of answers about his past. A day, maybe two, to tie up loose strings and he’ll be out of there, heading for Mexico, margaritas and blondes in bikinis.

Emma Stanhope is all too familiar with hot, rich, entitled guys like Alex. They never hang around for long, especially not for a Plain Jane like herself. No problem. She’s smart and logical, like any good scientist, and knows better than to lose her heart.

What Emma doesn’t count on is chemistry—of the romantic kind. What Alex doesn’t count on is meeting the girl who’ll make him want to change his ways. But when he learns that he’s a secret from his father’s real family, he can’t stay in Cherry Lake… even if he wants to.

Will love be enough to convince Alex to stay… for good?

My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars. Around his thirtieth birthday, Alex, receives a birthday card from his "long lost" father. On a whim, he decides on confronting his father instead of going on planned vacation. But what he learns just might be more then he can handle...

Though I grew up knowing that I (myself) was a secret child of my birth father's, while Alex only knew that his father left him, I felt a certain kindred spirit to Alex and this novel. As I completely get it. I get Alex's need for validation. I get why Robert did what he did, though he might be a great guy to everyone else what he did to Alex (not acknowledging him as his son) was sucky and shitty. It hurt a bit to read those parts, I'm not gonna lie. However, I feel Ms. Kilby handled the delicacy of the plot quite well, even though some parts of the ending wrapped up a little too nicely for me.

Nevertheless, I feel that the romance plot held this novel together. Giving it a sweetness and hilarity that it required so everyone could process the rest of the novel with a lightness that would not have been there otherwise.

I recommend this novel to those looking for a serious contemporary romance.

Her eyes widened and she stopped chewing as a bright flush spread across her cheeks. Had he embarrassed her? He was considering apologizing when she swallowed and took a sip of coffee. Just as nonchalant as could be, she said, "So that's what passes for sex in the big city."
He laughed out loud. "Touché."
She wasn't finished. "If a man's car is a metaphor for his penis what does it mean that you drive a tiny sports car? Your Beemer could fit in the back of Will's HiLux."
"Okay, enough." Still chuckling, he reached down to pat the retriever who was sniffing at his shoes. ~ within Chapter 3

"A Christmas Homecoming" [Bar V5 Dude Ranch Series, Book 5] by Melissa McClone

Authors' Book Description : A kiss is just a kiss…

Unless it’s under the mistletoe.


Ellie Smith is determined to make up for Christmases past by spreading holiday cheer throughout the Bar V5 dude ranch, but tech “bah, humbug” billionaire, Josiah Whittaker, refuses to bask in the spirit of the season.

Unwilling to let the geek-to-gorgeous Josiah win, Ellie plans to give him a Christmas he’ll never forget. But after a simple kiss under the mistletoe, Ellie and Josiah both start questioning everything. Can Christmas really bring the gift neither one of them were expecting: true love?

My Book Review : DNF – While I am a big fan of Ms. McClone and her Bar V5 Dude Ranch Series, as well as I enjoyed getting updates of past characters, my interest in this one just couldn’t hold for long. I mean the plot was great; a Grinch-like guy forced stay at the ranch brings him into constant contact with a girl (turned woman) from his past who loves Christmas and shows him what he truly needs in his life. But by 60% of the way through I was starting to struggle as the plot slowed down and by 74% I just gave up. I wish I could have stayed into it, as I would have liked, as there were awesome one-liners and scenes leading up to 60%. I just hope that everyone else will be more hooked into it than I was able to be.

Made the Grade: Again, Alabama by Susan Sands

- This is an ARC book - Available Formats through Amazon.com: Kindle Edition - File Size: 978 KB | Expected Release Date: June 12, 2015 | Publisher: Tule Publishing : Southern Born Books | Obtained: NetGalley

"Again, Alabama" by Susan Sands

Author's Book Description : Cammie Laroux is back in Alabama—again.

Dragged back to her small town to help her mother recover from surgery while rescuing the family event planning business should be a cinch. Even for a disgraced television chef, right? Wrong.

Among the many secrets Cammie’s family’s been hiding is the fact that their historic home is falling down. Oh, and the man hired to restore the house, Grey Harrison, is the same high school and college love of her life who thrashed her heart and dreams ten years ago. Yeah, that guy.

Grey, a widower with a young daughter, has never stopped loving Cammie, and when they are face to face once again, the chemistry is off the charts. Cammie may be in full-blown denial, but letting go is no longer in Grey’s vocabulary, even when winning Cammie’s forgiveness and renovating their love may seem like an impossible build even for a master architect and carpenter.

As Cammie finds herself forgetting all the reasons she can’t trust Grey or love again, he finds himself remembering all the reasons he wants her to stay with him in Alabama… forever.

My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars. This is a riveting tale about a woman who comes home to pick up the pieces of her life while setting to rights her family’s business and dealing with a ten-year-old betrayal by having her ex back in her life.

Ten years ago Cammie and her longtime boyfriend Grey (both being in college at the time) got into an argument, misunderstanding ensue, and Grey made the drunken mistake by having sex with Cammie’s then best friend Deb. Because of how Deb manipulates Grey after their drunken encounter, both Cammie and Grey never got to get over Grey’s terrible mistake and their lives have irreconcilably change from then on. Now ten years have passed, Deb (Cammie’s ex best friend and Grey’s wife) recently died in an accident, and both Grey & Cammie are back in their hometown for personal reasons. With them working and living closely together again, old hurts are back out to play while they find that their interest in one another hasn’t gone away. However, will they be able to reconcile after everything that has happened? In addition, if they can get over the past will they be able to try for a new future together no matter the cost?

Yet, as riveted as I was with the plot I found the pacing slow and hard to stick with at times. I liked both Cammie and Grey. Moreover, while I did root for them to be together it was hard to do so with all the angst that is a constant play in this novel, which at times had me resenting Grey for what he did when he was younger. Then to top it off this novel has secrets galore, which seemed to keep coming out of the woodwork and mostly from Cammie's mother Maureen. A majority of the surprises were dramatic twists that were hard to handle, especially on top of Grey and Cammie’s “relationship.”

While I liked the ending, Grey’s commitment to Cammie by making a relationship and family with her work, and how Grey hopes to improve his daughter’s life by working with a counselor as much as possible, I thought it was very rushed and wrapped up to quaintly after everything the characters go through. In addition, I kind of wanted to read a scene or two between Cammie and Samantha (Sammie) that would show that their relationship was improving.

Overall, this novel was a good read. I would recommend it to those looking for a contemporary romance high on drama.

"The Fairy Tale Bride" [Montana Born Brides Series, Book 1] by Scarlet Wilson

Authors' Book Description : It seems that wedding fever has hit the little town of Marietta...

Lisa Renee loves weddings. As owner of Marietta’s bridal salon, Lisa takes charge when a celebrity wedding rolls into town and does what she does best: hosting the fairy tale wedding her clients dream of. But the celebrity’s badly behaving bridesmaids shatter Lisa’s poise, excitement, and hopes of putting Marietta and her boutique on the map. The only place she can find peace is on the pediatric ward of the local hospital where she volunteers, a place that holds more meaning to her than anyone knows. Leave it to the handsome and charming new doctor to change all of that...

Dr. Adam Brady is enjoying his new job and anonymity at Marietta’s hospital, but he hasn’t been able to focus entirely since the gorgeous business owner and hard-working volunteer piqued his interest. As he spends more time with her, sparks fly, and he realizes that he’s not the only one in Marietta with secrets…

My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars! This is a cutely quaint story about Lisa, a bridal shop owner who is still getting over her disastrous ex fiancé, and Adam, the "Millionaire" doctor who recently moved to Marietta. Both have secrets that they'd rather keep hidden, yet after getting so close will they be ready to trust each other with their truths?

I found the setup and plot of this novel very well portrayed. Lisa & Adam a good matchup and complemented each other well. However, the novel itself didn't capture and hold my interest, as I'd have liked which is why it got the rating it did.

Nevertheless, I recommend it to those looking for a sweet quick contemporary romance.

"One Night with the Cowboy" [Whiskey River Series, Book 2] by Eve Gaddy

Authors' Book Description : Meet the Kellys of Whiskey River, Texas, men who have always gone through life, and women, with their father’s legendary charm.

Trey Kelly has it all. Eldest son of Boots Kelly, Trey runs the Kelly ranch, and Trey’s heart is with his “babies”, Kelly’s Champs, the World Champion cutting horses he breeds and sells. Women love Trey and he loves women, but he's never met the one he wanted for keeps. Until...

Reclusive Ariana Wright's lavender farm sits next door to the Kelly spread. Ariana is a smart, ambitious chemist and after the car accident that left her scarred, the success of her new line of lavender based beauty products is all Ariana is interested in.

Convincing Ariana to take a chance on love is a task that takes all of Trey’s cowboy determination. But can Ariana let go of the wounds of the past and give herself more than one night with the cowboy?

My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars, in the span of one-day Trey’s life goes from surprising to pleasing. First, he finds out that his father had other sons that he wasn’t aware of and now has to share his family’s ranch with them for a year just to be able to inherit what should be his and his brother Wyatt already. Then later that same day Trey finds Ariana in a river on his property, bringing a wanting he hasn’t ever believed he wanted before. Yet, Ariana is physically scarred and has a hard time overcoming it. Will Trey be able to win her over and get her out of her comfort zone for good? Or will she feel that being apart would be best for the both of them?

I liked Trey and Ariana’s romance it was very sweet, comical, and heartwarming! I especially enjoyed the scenes with Big Boy and Little Joe. =0) My only wish is that the ending wasn’t as slow as it was which was a bit frustrating because I liked the rest of the novel.

Nevertheless, I recommend this novel to those who are looking for a quick contemporary romance.

Made the Grade: This Old House Series, Book 4

- This is an ARC book - Available Formats through Amazon.com: Kindle Edition - File Size: 896 KB | Expected Release Date: April 26, 2015 | Publisher: Tule Publishing : Montana Born Books | Obtained: NetGalley

"Cinderella’s Cowboy" [This Old House Series, Book 4] by Roxanne Snopek (aka R. G. Willems & Roxanne Willems Snopek)

Authors' Book Description : Could this fantasy be real?

Chad Anders doesn’t know why mousy Cynthia Henley trips all over her tongue when she’s around him. Nor does he understand his undeniable attraction to this good girl. Wild and sexy is his type, like the dream-girl he caught a glimpse of years earlier he’s never forgotten.

Cynthia’s superpower is invisibility, especially with men. It’s better for everyone that way. Besides, she’s got a cat. She’s okay. But when playboy-rancher Chad hires her, she’s got a chance to shine. Professionally, at least. Until she learns of his fascination with a mysterious dream-girl, who was actually nothing more than a shy teenager on an ill-advised dare all those years ago. Cynthia knows she’s no man’s dream-girl and never will be.

But there’s magic at the ball. Princesses glow in the starlight, princes appear out of nowhere, and, sometimes, they look a lot like cowboys…

My Book Review : 3.5 out of 5 stars! This was a creative backwards take on the Cinderella story. Because while Cynthia (Cindy/Cinderella) might feel over looked in her family she loves her stepmother, her father (who's still alive), and her gorgeous twin stepsisters. However, she wants to finally make it on her own without the financial help from her stepmother, as her help includes a clause that her sisters need to “work” with her too. To have her own company she needs to have a successful event for Chad’s new organization Building Tomorrow. Yet as Cynthia gets everything just right for the event, she gets closer to Chad and learns that he might be the one to bring light into her life, while Chad learns that his mystery woman might have been under his nose all along…

Very sweet and entertaining. Especially interesting how the characters nicknamed her Cinderella she isn’t much of one, it’s more about girl power and Cynthia accepting the hand that fate dealt her and making the most of it all. With a kitty, instead of a shoe, to bring Cynthia & Chad together I was charmed. I liked how their relationship subtly grew and how Chad’s ten-year mystery was revealed.

I recommend this novel to those looking for a sweet contemporary romance!

Idolizing In: Bachelor Auction Series, Book 4

- This is an ARC book - Available Formats through Amazon.com: Kindle Edition - File Size: 364 KB | Expected Release Date: March 11, 2015 | Publisher: Tule Publishing : Montana Born Books | Obtained: NetGalley

"What a Bachelor Needs" [Bachelor Auction Series, Book 4] by Kelly Hunter

Authors' Book Description : Your date with ski champ Jett Casey is an either/or deal. He’ll take you off-piste for the ultimate Montana ski adventure or he’ll put his handyman skills at your disposal for a week.

Single mom Mardie Griffin has a run-down old house in need of fixing and a memory of Jett Casey as her savior in a time of great need. So when her friends acquire Jett’s services at a bachelor auction and send him to fix up her house, she sets aside her mistrust of men and lets him in.

Elite athlete Jett Casey has the world at his feet and no desire for stability. But there’s one woman he’s never forgotten and if he can help make her safe this time, maybe she’ll stop haunting him.

No strings, no sex, no commitment. Just fix things. Surely it can’t be that difficult…

My Book Review : 5 out of 5 stars!! Mardie's life might not be grand, but it is her own and she's proud of what she has accomplished. However, when her friend purchases Jett for her as a handyman for a week from the local bachelor auction, Mardie freaks out a bit. It's not that Jett isn't nice, because he is. It's not that he can't help her, because her home can definitely use the work. It's just that Jett is the one man who she has had a longtime crush on, and is the man who saved her from that frightening night years ago. Now Mardie's scared to loose herself to the one man who could hurt her and possibly loose her heart too.

This fast-paced novel keeps its readers on their toes just as much as Jett keeps Mardie on hers. Fun, heartwarming, and intense it was entertaining from beginning to end. I loved Jett, Mardie, Claire, Jett & Mardie's relationship, and the plot! In truth, there isn't one bad thing I could say about the novel. They are a wonderful pair!

I HIGHLY recommend this novel to those looking for a fast-paced contemporary romance!!

Feasted On: Hot Aussie Heroes Series, Book 2

- This is an ARC book - Available Formats through Amazon.com: Kindle Edition - File Size: 384 KB | Expected Release Date: January 21, 2015 | Publisher: Tule Publishing : Holiday Books | Obtained: NetGalley

"The Hero" [Hot Aussie Heroes Series, Book 2] by Amy Andrews

Authors' Book Description : The darling of the Aussie small screen, Edwina Calloway, has always had a thing for her ex co-star the hunky Justin Wilde - even before he took off to Tinsel town and became a Hollywood heartthrob. And Justin always had a thing for her. Except she was married already, so neither of them ever crossed that line. But now Justin's back in Oz to take part in a celebrity car rally with Edwina riding shotgun and she isn't married anymore...

It seems the entire country is holding its breath for their much vaunted reunion. Can they survive a five day road trip, just the two of them alone in the car under intense media scrutiny without finally getting naked and doing the Wilde thing? And if they can't, what happens at the end when Justin heads back to Hollywood?

My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars! Edwina's (Ed) life changed forever after her life threatening accident about a year ago. Now to honor those who saved her life, she plans to participate in a car rally with her ex-costar turned movie star Justin (Jus) to earn some money for her saviors. However, in the midst of the media spotlight old attraction flares between Justin and her, which makes them really think about what they want for themselves in the future.

Justin really is the hero! He’s so gentlemanly and sultry that it makes you wish he were the one loving and defending you. His relationship with Edwina is combustible from the very beginning; and as the novel progresses, it makes you want to root for them even more.

I recommend this novel for those looking for a fast-paced dramedy contemporary romance.

Justin glanced at her legs. He couldn't help it with so much of them exposed. "You know that dress is totally evil, right?"
She smiled. "I thought you'd like it."
"Oh, I think like is far to mild a word. I think I nearly stroked out when you walked on stage."
"Thought I'd switch it up a bit."
Justin chuckled at the understatement. "And me and the rest of the straight male population of Tamworth thanks you for that. Maybe give me some warning next time thought, okay?"
She laughed and it sounded almost as evil as the dress. "And take all the fun out of it?" ~ within DAY THREE

Idolizing In: A Marietta Christmas Novel & Montana Born Christmas Series, Book 1

- This is an ARC book - Available Formats through Amazon.com: Kindle Edition - File Size: 297 KB | Expected Release Date: October 13, 2014 | Publisher: Tule Publishing : Montana Born Books | Obtained: NetGalley

"Blame The Mistletoe" [A Marietta Christmas Novel & Montana Born Christmas Series, Book 1] by Dani Collins

Author's Book Description : Liz Flowers has never enjoyed Christmas, but this one is shaping up to be the worst by far. She let her ex take her daughter to Mexico while she stays behind in a strange town, sitting her former mother-in-law’s high strung little dog. It’s an opportunity to meet new people, but this California girl doesn’t have much in common with the ranchers in small town Marietta.

Blake Canon perks up with male interest when he sees a new face at his friend’s Christmas cocktail party. His son is away and a light affair would take his mind off his financial troubles. Then he realizes he knows Liz. She was once married to the brother of his ex-wife.

Their children might be cousins, but Blake and Liz do the kissing—under the mistletoe. It’s the beginning of a new view of Christmas for Liz, but when their children arrive home unexpectedly, and family secrets are revealed, Liz isn’t sure she’ll stay in Marietta for Christmas after all.

My Book Review : 5 out of 5 stars!! LOVED, love, loved it!! It was hard not getting sucked into this sweetly steamy romance about an ex-brother-in-law & an ex-sister-in-law falling in love and dealing with their unique challenges! Blake & Liz were a hard couple not to root for, their romantic and self-deprecating ways were very charming to read about. Plus, I enjoyed reading their banter!

I highly recommend reading this novel to those who like contemporary holiday romances!!

Book Teaser(s) :
As she talked, he found himself staring at her lips. Not a wide mouth. Kind of set in a permanent almost-invitation to kiss. She had a dot of birthmark on her bottom lip, slightly off center. "I thought it would be good for me---Do I have something on my mouth? Sometimes people think I do, but it's just a freckle . . ."
"What? No, you're fine," he rushed to assure her, wits dulled by a sucker-punch of thinking about running his tongue over that little dot. Which was okay. They weren't related. It was just maybe unwise and yeah, possibly fueled by irony and a desire to mow down the Flowers.
And desire for Liz. She was classy and pretty and intriguing. He would love to tear up the sheets with her.
Which would start to show if he wasn't careful. He made himself catch up to the conversation. "What do you mean that coming here is good for you?"
"You know. I thought I should mingle with the natives."
"You're eating your social vegetables?"
"Kind of," she agreed, flashing straight white teeth. "Yes, I suppose that's exactly what I'm doing. Chewing community kale to stave off a bad case of isolation rickets."
He nodded, liking that she could be playful. ~ within Chapter 2
