Made the Grade: Fools Gold Series, Book 1

Format: Paperback | Pages: 376 | Release Date: May 2010 | Publisher: HQN Books

"Chasing Perfect" [Fool's Gold Series, Book 1] by Susan Mallery

My Book Summary : Charity has been through one disaster of a relationship after the next, so when she is hired for a new job as the city planner she takes it and moves to Fools Gold. The town that is quaint, homey and nothing like the locations she grew up in. The only thing that takes a little time to get used to is that secrets are hard to keep, so everyone knows everyone else's business.

Josh has lived in Fools Gold since he was ten. Shortly after he moved there, his mother took off and the town took him in. Even though he has become a famous bike racer (and was the second youngest to win the Tour de France), his home has always been in Fools Gold and he seems to be able to do no wrong in the eyes of the town.

Charity appears to be able to get see the image behind the one that Josh portrays, finding out he isn't as perfect as he seems. However, maybe that she is exactly the person Josh needs ... someone who knows how much the value of not being perfect really is.

My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars. This book was about two people who have been left or abandoned by those they loved in their past and are learning how to trust again. The town of Fools Gold is very well written, the characters are great, and it makes to wish you could visit the town yourself. However, the book was a little too predictable for you to really enjoy it.

My favorite characters in this book were Charity & Pia! Charity was a good leading lady. I really hope one of these Fools Gold series books will be about Pia getting a man or at least mention it in one of the secondary plots of a book, since she was a sweetie, it made me wish I could have her as a friend. =0)

My Previous Review(s) for this Author : Tempting | Accidentally Yours | Falling For Gracie

Book Teaser :
"My going out with him isn't about you," she told him.
"Never thought it was."
"I'm just saying."
"Right." Now he was pissed. "Have you kissed Robert? Because you sure as hell kissed me."
She stiffened, then looked around as if she didn't want anyone to hear.
"That was an accident," she said, her voice low and tense.
"Right. You fell into my arms and our mouths bumped."
Irritation flashed in her brown eyes. "You're not all that."
Truer words had never been spoken, he thought, then he grabbed her upper arms and drew her in those last few inches.
"Want to bet?" he asked, right before his mouth settled on hers. ~ within Chapter 8

"Hanna And The Hot Hockey Gods" by Dizzy Hooper

Author's Book Description : Three bad boy hockey players. One figure skater in need of some stress relief. Let the games begin…

As a last minute addition to the figure skating team, I knew I was in for some hazing, but this is ridiculous. I walk in on my roommate doing the deed on my bed.

With nowhere to go, I end up wandering the halls, only to run into three super hot members of the men's ice hockey team. There's the team captain, Zeke, who gives me the chills. Sensitive Aaron. And filthy-mouthed, uber-competitive Brent.

These bad boy forwards have a reputation—and a goal. They want a girl to celebrate their win with.

Who am I to say no?

It's just a night of no-strings fun. They bring my body to heights I never knew were possible, and I'm pretty sure I rock their world.

Turns out, hockey players are a superstitious bunch. If they win again, they want me back.

Before I know it, we're celebrating together after every game. I'm not sure if it's the stress relief or the new confidence they've given me, but I'm skating better than I ever have before. We all have gold in our sights.

But the games are coming to a close. There's no future for an underdog figure skater and three hot hockey gods out there in the real world.

Or is there…?

"Hanna And The Hot Hockey Gods" is a complete, STANDALONE reverse harem romance, featuring dirty talking alpha males and a guaranteed HEA. No cheating, no cliffhangers!

My Book Review : 4.5 out of 5 stars! Hanna recently got added to as a last-minute spot on the US women’s figure skating team for something like the Olympics, and it seems everyone really doesn’t want her there. Yet after an unusual exchange with her roommate Hanna meets three hockey players that just might change her life, or at least this week-long event, for good ... if only she’s willing to make the best of it all ...

If you are looking for HOT ultra-smutty (sometimes gangbang style) read that also has a LOT OF HEART too, then this is the novel is the perfect pick for you!

Disappointmentville: The Ex Games by Jennifer Echols

Format: Kindle Edition | File Size: 486 KB | Release Date: September 2009 | Publisher: Simon Pulse

"The Ex Games" by Jennifer Echols

My Book Summary : Four years ago, Hayden and her family moved from Tennessee to Colorado. During that time, she was in seventh grade, just recovered from a broken leg, and was swept up in being Nick's girl -- who was the hottest & richest boy at her new school -- even though they've only been on a few dates. But while on a date at the local movie theatre she found out that the only reason Nick was dating her was because of a bet with his friends, and once she found out instead of crying she bitched him out in front of everyone at the theatre (including a lot of kids from their grade).

Now they’re exes and over the years they have gotten into a habit of flirting, Nick playing tricks on her, and arguing/fighting with each other. However, during the day before their high school’s winter break they both find themselves in the hallway talking to each other and sitting mighty close together. Something’s in the air but Hayden isn’t quite sure what. She has wanted to be with Nick again ever since they had their fight four years ago but things always got in the way. Plus, it doesn’t help that she’s not sure she can trust him. Also, even though they both happen to be single right now, ever since they broke up, Nick’s longest relationship lasts only about two to three dates, and Hayden doesn’t want to just end up like all of his other girls.

During winter break Hayden wins a snowboarding competition, afterwards she celebrates with her friends, their boyfriends, and Nick. While they are all talking about her competition Nick says that she only won because she was against girls, but if she went up against a boy of her age bracket she would loose. This, of course, starts an argument between the girls and the guys, and ending with Nick and Hayden going against each other that following Saturday (Valentine’s Day) in a comp to see who’s the better boarder.

While the pressure for who will win the comp builds and it seems that the whole town is taking a side, Hayden and Nick go back and forth on getting together again or just arguing with each other and staying sort-of friends. On top of that, Nick is having family issues and Hayden is trying to conquer her fear of heights ... will they be able to fight the odds and realize what is happening between them? Or will they not make up and keep playing the game they’ve been playing since they broke up in seventh grade?

My Book Review : 2 out of 5 stars, because I liked the concept but Nick and Hayden bickered way to much for me to enjoy it. It was like the first time someone said something wrong the other person would chop off the other's head by any means necessary. However, I did like the relationship between Hayden and her younger brother ... their back-and-forth was very entertaining. =0)

My Previous Review(s) for this Author : Forget You

Book Teaser(s) :
Hayden, she's a red-haired lass
Doing nose-grabs by the score
Gonna kick some Krieger ass
Maybe she needs one day more
Wants to snowboard off the jump
Not today, she's filled with sorrow
Scared she'll lose her steeze and biff
Gonna kick some ass tomorrow. ~ within the Chapter titled 'lemon grab'
"Dish, Hayden," exclaimed a gossip-seeking girl who skied directly into my path. "It would be soooo cute if you and Nick got together after he sealed your backpack inside that plaster of Paris volcano last year."
Liz giggled and elbowed me. "I'd forgotten all about that one!"
"But my friends say no way," the girl went on. "Nick hates you. Which is it?"
I shrugged. "I guess you'll have to ask Nick." And if she found out, I hoped she'd pass that info along to me. ~ within the Chapter titled 'jib'

Made the Grade: Lady Be Good by Susan Elizabeth Phillips

Format: Hardcover | Pages: 465 | Release Date: February 1999 | Publisher: Avon Books

"Lady Be Good" by Susan Elizabeth Phillips

My Book Summary : Kenny is going through some bad luck recently ... first his manager gets caught using his money in illegal drug dealings, because of what his manager did the PGA commissioner (Dallie Beaudine - who's also a friend) tells him that he will be suspended from the golf tour (including the Masters) for two weeks (hoping he'll straighten out his life), then he gets into a fist fight with a news anchor -- and even though the news anchor threw the first punch -- Kenny takes the blame, and now for the next two weeks during his suspension Kenny needs to cater to Lady Emma Wells-Finch (a friend of Dallie's wife Francesca from England) while she's visiting Texas. What could go wrong??

Well, just about anything and everything for Kenny ... especially when Emma tells him that during her time in Texas she needs (and wants) to do her best in ruining her reputation, just when he's trying his best to clean his own reputation up. Will Kenny be able to control this new little (wannabe) hell raiser before he loses everything?? Or will he be a victim of her charm and get more than he bargained for?

My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars! I loved "Fancy Pants" -- I was so excited to read this story ("Lady Be Good") since it takes the main characters from "Fancy Pants" and made them secondary characters in this one ..... and when it's done right just makes it all the better! Lady Emma and Kenny have a good relationship and I love reading the chemistry between them. However, I think the end was a little rushed for me. But I did like how their final argument played out!! If you are a fan of Susan Elizabeth Phillips' books (and have read "Fancy Pants") then I highly recommend reading this one! Especially with "Call Me Irresistible" coming out in early 2011, which is about Ted's love life (who's the child from the main characters of "Fancy Pants" and play a secondary role in this book too).

My Previous Review(s) for this Author : Ain't She Sweet | What I Did for Love | Nobody's Baby But Mine | Honey Moon | Dream a Little Dream

Book Teaser(s) :
"Don't you ever do anything like that again!"
She had to launch a counterattack, but she was too depleted to muster the right words. He pushed her inside the car and was still steaming as he got in himself.
"We almost did it! Right there in the middle of the busiest street in Wynette, Texas!" The Caddy shot out of its parking space. "Another few seconds, your skirt would have been up around waist and my pants would have been unzipped, and don't you try to deny it. Damn it Emma! I told you yesterday that I wasn't going to let anything keep me from getting back on the tour, but apparently you weren't listening. Or maybe you forgot that this happens to be the commissioner's hometown and everybody knows him." ~ within Chapter 11

Feasted On: Chicago Stars Series, Book 4

Format: Paperback | Pages: 390 | Release Date: February 1998 | Publisher: Avon Books

"Dream a Little Dream" [Chicago Stars Series, Book 4] by Susan Elizabeth Phillips

My Book Summary : This book picks up just about 8 months after Book 3 in this series left off. Rachel Stone is coming back to Salvation, North Carolina; the town that she never believed she would return too. Especially after her televangelist husband fled the country so the police couldn't arrest him and died in a plane crash. However, before he died he made certain that everyone believed his wife was the one who swayed his ways to do the "devils deeds" by giving her whatever she wanted and dipping into his church funds to do so.

Since then she has changed her last name back to her maiden name and tried to make ends meat for her five-year-old son and herself. But now she's at the end of her rope and came back to the town thinking that she might be able to find where the missing money her husband stashed was so she will be able to finally settle down in a small house and put the rest of the money aside for her son's future.

In doing so, she runs into Gabe Bonner (Cal's brother), who is trying to work through his own demons (dealing with the fact that he lost both his wife and son in a car accident about 3 yrs ago) by cleaning up and opening a local drive-in. This is where the two meet when Rachel's car brakes down for good and he finds them trespassing on his property. From the beginning the two don't see eye-to-eye ... she has a never back down attitude and he just wants to be left alone. Somehow she gets herself a job helping him clean up the drive-in with him. In doing so they become closer. Gabe helps her in find a temporary place to live (his grandmother's cottage) and without her knowledge makes sure she takes care of herself (since she was looking out for her son over her own well being).

However, except for a handful of people and majority of everyone in town believes Rachel is a really bad person. Because of that belief some towns people try to do things to her to either get her to leave town or just to get revenge for what they believe she has done. Gabe becomes her protector, and when her roommate moves out of the cottage he decides to move in with her.

Will Gabe get over his demons? Will the town ever accept Rachel and her son? Will Rachel ever find the missing money?

My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars!! This book was GREAT!!!!!! I LOVED Rachel & Gabe as a couple!! Plus, finding out what else happened for the Bonner family was icing on the cake! Then the cherry on top was the secondary story of Pastor Ethan (Gabe & Cal's younger brother) & Kristy. =0) If I gush any more then you'll know what will happen in the book so ... I just say .... GO READ IT!

My Previous Review(s) for this Series : Book 3

My Previous Review(s) for this Author : Ain't She Sweet | What I Did for Love | Honey Moon

Book Teaser(s) :
"I just can't figure out how we're going to manage our--you know. Our fling?"
"Fling?" He sounded offended. "Is that what this is?"
They rounded a bend in the road, and she had to squint against the setting sun. "It's not an affair." She paused. "Affair is too serious. It's a fling, and the point is, I don't see how we're going to manage it."
"We won't have a bit of trouble." ~ within Chapter 12
She gave no smile of greeting, no sign that she was glad to see him. "Why did you take off like that?" he snapped.
"I wasn't feeling well."
"You seem to be feeling fine now."
She didn't reply. Instead, she bent her head and began working a clump of chickweed free.
"If you wanted to leave, you should have told me. You know I don't like it when you're here by yourself."
"You can't be with me every minute. And why should you try?"
"What does that mean?"
"It means I'm not your responsibility." ~ within Chapter 19

Made the Grade: NASCAR Series, Book 2

Format: Kindle Edition | File Size: 208 KB | Release Date: August 2007 | Publisher: Harlequin Books

"Almost Famous" [NASCAR Series, Book 2] by Gina Wilkins

My Book Summary : Jake is taking a brake from his racing career, the media, and anything else that goes along with it ... and tries to recuperate from a boating accident in cabin Arkansas. The only problem is after living a life in the spotlight being alone now is getting kind of boring, so when he meets his cute next door neighbor, Stacy, he hopes that he might have someone to hang out with. But Stacy doesn't wants alone time herself as she is staying at her brother's cabin to get away from the recent media about an incident at a local courthouse that she was involved in, and she hates that people know about her now before they even are introduced to her. But then fate steps in when Stacy suddenly needs assistance in getting her foot trapped out of a whole in the woods, and Jake helps out. While they get to talking they both realize that neither of them really know who each other is, since Stacy's story was a little more of a state story instead of national and Jake finds that she doesn't pay attention to NASCAR racing, which both appeal to them so they both go out of their way to not really tell specifics about themselves to each other.

However, after a week of hanging out, they get closer becoming something more then just friends, then their secrets become revealed. Neither is upset with the other, but with one hating anything to do with the media and the other living a life in the spot light .... how can they make it work?

My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars. *sigh* This one was almost heading into 'Disappointmentville' but it had some good parts to keep that from happening. However, Stacy was borderline annoying when it came to making a decisions about their relationship. So you may not like this book as much as I did if you can't stand indecisive people. Jake was a great character though!
