    They say that things just cannot grow beneath the winter snow

    "Snowbound" by Janice Kay Johnson was such a disappointment. I picked it up from Amazon.com since they had it free if you had an iPod or a Kindle and it was on the top of the list for supposedly being so good. But ehhh. =0P

    It's about a teacher who is driving back (in a snowstorm) from an out-of-town event with a group of her students (8 teens). They decided to take the quickest route back ... not knowing that that highway closes in the winter. Thankfully the route they took has a lodge on it. The owner of this lodge is a gentleman who just got discharged from the military, and is dealing with his own set of problems. During the teacher (and her group's) 3 night stay at the lodge waiting for the storm to let-up, the teacher and the owner build a connection ..... and they see if they can make it work afterwords.

    I mean the setting was good and so was the plot/point of the story. But if I wanted to read about war scenes then I would have picked up a nonfiction or history type of book, not a romance. And even though the story was a short one, for how she dragged it out making so everyone was so indecisive .... I was just happy to see it end.

    2 out of 5 stars.

    "Sugar & Spice" [Spicetopia Series, Book 1] by Phoebe Alexander

    Author's Book Description : A billionaire undercover boss.
    A single mom who’s totally off limits.
    Temptation never looked so sweet...


    Cy Sweet has always been the black sheep of his family, which is probably why he was chosen to go Undercover Boss in Sweetopia, his family’s theme park. Enticed by his father’s bribe, he dons an apron to serve pastries in Cotton Candy Castle, one of the park’s most popular attractions.

    He’s tempted to blow his cover when he meets The Red Velvet Queen. Sure, she’s a costumed character and the jewels in her crown are fake, but she’s absolutely breathtaking. His desire only grows when he invents a baker’s dozen reasons to visit her every day…enough visits to discover her sweetness comes with a side of spice.

    But they’re both in disguise. The Queen is actually single mom Jolie Cox, who relentlessly struggles to make a living for herself and her sons. And Cy is actually her boss, not to mention heir to the corporate empire she despises.

    What will happen when their identities are finally unmasked?

    Sugar & Spice is Book 1 of the Spicetopia Series. Though the series can be read in any order, here is the preferred reading order:
    Book 1: Sugar & Spice (Cy and Jolie's story)

    My Book Review : DNF. This is another book that I picked up for FREE during the holidays and had hopes of enjoying it. Yet, at this time

    Tuesday, January 12, 2010

    I've found a reason for me, To change who I used to be, A reason to start over new ...

    Betrayal of the ones we love are the hardest things to get past, in "Catch A Mate" by Gena Showalter all the characters deal with their own or others betrayals on almost a daily basis. Catch A Mate is a business where people who believe their significant other is cheating on them and want to find out if their accusations are accurate or not. All that person would have to do is hire Catch a Mate and an employee (called the bait) would find that significant other at a club (or some place they normally hang out) and try picking them up but at the end they don't follow it through, and they record it all so the spouse will know the truth. Jillian has worked at Catch A Mate for over 6 years and would love to take it over to make it even better then it already is. Marcus just happened to purchase the business from Jillian's boss. Both have major trust issues ... but will they learn that even though they want to stay enemies, they'll never find anyone else they could trust more then each other?

    2 out of 5 stars. Don't let the rating fool you ... it was a really good book ... cute. I mean I loved all of the characters! Main and secondary stories were awesome! However ... the ending ruined it for me .... it felt like Gena tried to wrap everything up to fast. Yet I don't know how it could have been written any better either. Which is sad since I liked it right up until there was about a quarter left in the book. =0(

    To find out more about this book and/or other books by Gena, then check out her website.

    Made the Grade: A Bride for All Seasons Series, Book 1

    Format: Kindle Edition | File Size: 528 KB | Release Date: February 2009 | Publisher: Harlequin Books

    "The Bride's Baby" [A Bride for All Seasons Series, Book 1] by Liz Fielding

    My Book Summary : Sylvie has planned so many weddings that she is now the most sought after Bridal Planner, however when one of her friends decides on ditching their groom three days before their wedding for one of her employees her whole world changes.

    Tom has just been left/dumped by his run away bride and now wants to confront the person who he would like to lay the blame on, Sylvie, especially since it was her employee. While hassling her at a meeting to go over the invoices that he needs to pay for the wedding, even though it never happened, sparks fly in more ways then one! Once the dusts settles they find they can't deny what is between them any longer, and they find themselves together in his bed.

    Afterwords, Tom leaves the country as he planned but can't get her out of his mind, while Sylvie finds out she's pregnant and plans for what will happen next, and it is all uphill for them miscommunications galore! Will the truth ever come out before it's too late?

    My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars. Predictable but cute story! The good thing about it was that with all of the miscommunications between them it was written in a way that didn't make me feel like either character was annoying or make me not like one character because of how they could have acted.

    Book Teaser :
    "Tell me what he's seeing that's making him melt," Geena persisted.
    His gaze dropped to the unmistakable bulge where his baby was growing beneath her heart and, shattering the illusion, said, "Sackcloth and ashes would do it." Then, turning abruptly away, "Mark, have you got everything you need in here?" ~ within Chapter 4

    For more information on this book, series and/or any other books by Liz, then please check out her website.

    Author's Book Description : What happens in a carriage doesn’t always stay in a carriage...

    Lord Harry Marlow reluctantly attends a Christmas house party hosted by his brother and his sister-in-law, who also happens to be the woman he once longed to wed himself. He’s not pleased by the prospect of holly and mistletoe and merrymaking any more than he is with the reminder of the love he could have had. But his dismay doesn’t last for long when a mysterious stranger in the midst of a blizzard captures his interest.

    Lady Alexandra Danvers is unabashedly eccentric. Nothing and no man interests her more than her scientific pursuits. Until she meets the sinfully handsome Lord Harry, that is.

    Length: novella

    Note: Previously appeared in the collection "Seduced Under the Mistletoe." This is an extended version never before published.

    Made the Grade: Shifters Series, Book 1

    Format: Paperback | Pages: 618 | Release Date: February 2010 | Publisher: MIRA

    "Stray" [Shifters Series, Book 1] by Rachel Vincent

    My Book Summary : Have you ever seen a "black panther" before? Well, in this world there is no such thing as a "black panther", actually if you've seen one it is really a werecat (which is a type of shifter). Faythe is a werecat. Technically in her society, she's called a tabbycat, as she is a female werecat. Since there are so few tabbycat's in each werecat Pride across the US (about one, daughter, per Alpha), the tabbies usually choose who will be her husband and the next Alpha of her Pride. But five yrs ago Faythe ran away her boyfriend/fiancé (Marc) and her family so she wouldn't turn into a mother and house wife because she wanted more out of her life. Of course, they found her, and after they realized she wasn't going to change her mind, her dad (the Alpha) agreed to let her go to college. Faythe did so, moving on with her life as much as possible, hoping to never go back to her parents home, and dating other guys (all humans).

    But now, five yrs later, her family has come to bring her back home whether she likes it or not because of some one is stealing up neighboring Pride's tabbies (one being her friend and the other her younger cousin). Once home she feels there's no need for her to be there and tries to talk her father into letting her leave, which gets her into having 24-hour guard service to make sure she doesn't plan on running for it. Also, with Marc being her father's second-in-command, he is around her all the time, making her not sure if she should still keep her distance or not from him. Especially when old feelings start to emerge again.

    But things start getting worse fast, especially when they find one of the missing tabbies murdered .... her family helps the other Pride members search for the other tabby before it's too late. With everyone else dealing with the mess of the missing girls, Faythe manages to break away from everyone to think about everything that has happened in a short period of time for her, and falls right into a trap.

    Will she manage to come out better then the other tabbies? Will the Pride members find Faythe and the other girl before it's too late, and deal justice to the ones responsible?

    My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars! Faythe is a great strong character: fierce, determined, a protector to those she loves, though a bitch at times, with a small sweet side that is sometimes hard to find around her loud mouth. Her relationship with Marc is on rocky ground but it's hard not to root for them. Even though she happens to get into a bit of a love triangle (or should I say a square) with a friend she never considered before, and with a human boyfriend back at college. It definitely make me curious as to what book 2, "Rogue", might hold. =0)

    Book Teaser(s) :
    I let my face slip into the water, as much to escape Marc's tenderhearted babble as to rinse my hair, and I only came up when I had to either surface for a breath or drown.
    "...can ignore me for as long as you want. For the rest of the day, or for the rest of the month. For five more years if that's what you need. But when you finally realize I'm right, I'll still be here waiting."
    He stopped talking, but he wasn't gone. ~ within Chapter 15

    I don’t know but I think I maybe fallin’ for you. Dropping so quickly, maybe I should keep this to myself, waiting ’til I know you better.

    Format: Hardcover | Pages: 267 | Release Date: August 2004 | Publisher: Delacorte Press

    "The Immortal Highlander" [The Highlander Series, Book 6] by Karen Marie Moning -- In this novel Ms. Moning took Adam Black from villain Book 1 (and maybe a few others in this series) and made him the hero! Basically Adam had been a considerable grievance to the Faery Queen in fighting against the High Council and her to save a mortals life, and because of that she punished him by taking his powers away, making him human, and making him invisible to all the mortals around him for an unknown period of time.

    After a couple of months later at an impasse of what he might do to let the Faery Queen give back his immortality, a sidhe-seer named Gabrielle (Gabby) gets caught looking at him and he realizes she might just be able to save him.

    Gabby tries to fight off his lure, but with his charms he is hard to keep resisting, and she just might be falling for one of the "things" her grandmother had told her always to stay away from. But what will happen once Adam gets his powers back? And with someone on Adam's tail trying to kill him over centuries old arguments while he's in human form, will they even survive before they get Adam to speak to the Queen?

    4.5 out of 5 stars! It's a wonderful love story! Loved the characters! In addition, if you are a fan of the Fever series then you MUST read this book since it will give you a little more background info on Darroc -- why he was punished the way he was and how he started becoming what he is now.

    My Previous Review(s) for this Series: Book 1

    Idolizing In: Smooth Talking Stranger by Lisa Kleypas

    Format: Paperback | Pages: 372 | Release Date: March 2010 | Publisher: St. Martin's Paperbacks

    "Smooth Talking Stranger" by Lisa Kleypas

    My Book Summary : Ella has worked hard for what she has, which is a good life with her boyfriend Dane in Austin, Texas, a career that she is very happy with, and good friends. But after avoiding talking to her mother and sister for nearly two years, she takes a call from her mother asking her to come to Houston immediately since Ella's younger sister (Tara) has just left her son at Ella's mother's place and she can't keep him. Now Ella has to find out where her sister is, take care of a baby (even though she has never done so before), and take control of the situation and try to fix it.

    Once she gets there, she finds that her sister left a birth certificate with the baby. Now she knows that the baby's name is Luke, he's only a week old, and there is no father's name listed on the birth certificate. After making a few calls to her cousin, whom Tara has been living with, Ella has her write up a list as to whom Tara has been with within the past year -- since she wants the father of this baby to take responsibility even if Tara doesn't want him too. The first name on that list is billionaire playboy, Jack Travis.

    Jack is a ladies’ man, with no plans in settling down soon, but as soon as he meets Ella & Luke in his office's lobby he realizes how cute she is and he's determined to help her out by putting her up in a hotel until she finds another place to stay, and even agreeing to a paternity test (even though he swears to have been on one date with Tara but never sleeping with her). Now even though the truth comes out that Jack is telling the truth, he keeps helping Ella out through this trial time of raising a baby and straightening out her sister's mess, especially since she doesn't seem to be getting any support from her boyfriend or her mother.

    However, Ella has had a hard time growing up and makes a point of not getting close to anyone but Luke seems to sweep under her defenses, with Jack not far behind. Will Ella be able to put everything to rights again? Will she realize what she has before it's too late? Or will she run back to her old life and boyfriend the first chance she gets ....

    My Book Review : 5 out of 5 stars!! This story of Ella & Jack I just LOVED!! The way he just swooped in and took care of her, even when she didn't want it, was wonderful and soo sweet to read! I will say that when she's doing the hunt on who's Luke's father and she's confronting a man who is described to be blond ... I knew exactly who Luke's father was before the 5 or more chapters later confirmed it. Basically for my first time reading something/anything by Lisa Kleypas I got to say I was impressed! I'll definitely have to check out more of her books.

    Teaser Tuseday for this book...
    "Where's he going to stay?"
    "With me, of course."
