It's just the little things you do ... that makes me wanna get with you

Is it possible for you to move back into your old life after you've grown up and done so much? That is what Izzie and Nick try to figure out in "Overexposed" by Leslie Kelly. Izzie grew up being "in love" with her older sister's brother-in-law, who was only 4 years older then her .... but when she was 14 and chubby .... and Nick was 18 and sexy ... she couldn't help but have a crush ... just too bad it wasn't a mutual feeling. Almost a decade passes ... now their older, wiser, but are at points in their lives where they're looking for the next thing to do .... and both just happen to move back to their hometown. Much to each families delight but not theirs. Since Izzie got home she has been living two lives .... one where she helps out at her families bakery by day ... another where she plays a mysterious stripper by night. When they first see each other again at Nick's families pizzeria .... Nick notices Izzie right away and feels like he has to get to know her ... the only problem is he doesn't remember who she is, until after she gets mad at him and walks out the door. Later Izzie finds out that Nick is going to start being a bouncer at her club and tries to keep her secret from him so it won't get out to anyone else. ...... Does Izzie ever get over her crush? Will Nick find out who the mysterious stripper is? And the big question ..... if they meet on common ground will they stay together or will Izzie run away?

I liked the story. Izzie was a great character. 3 out of 5 stars. The only thing I didn't like was that behind the Izzie/Nick story .... there was a story of Izzie's cousin Bridget with her co-worker ... but they really didn't finish it well and just left it hanging. =0/ Which was disappointing.

This girl next door has some secrets ...

When I first started reading "Halfway To The Grave" (part of the Night Huntress series) by Jeaniene Frost, I was a little scared that I bought a series of 4 books and turn out to hate the first one. Especially after reading "The Fixer Upper," since Cat almost started having the same personality of Dempsey (like having feelings for someone then run away from them) ... and there was only so much a person can read about that. But thankfully even though the author created a lead character so flighty, she was also created strong-willed ... and then you have the lead's man that never wants to give up on her and you have a perfect romance novel! Bonus when it's a paranormal romance! =0)

This book was the first in the Night Huntress series (another vampire flick - YAY!) featuring Cat who's half-human & half-vampire, she's known she was different all her life but she had it confirmed by her mother on her 16th birthday. Her mother has a huge prejudice about vampires (because of the terms that happened to get her pregnant) and because of this she passes her prejudice onto Cat .... turning her daughter into a vampire hunter. Cat has no problem with what she does (especially since it makes her mom happy). During one of her pickups (when she's 22 yrs old) she comes across a vampire that doesn't follow the typical protocol that she's used to, and she ends up getting taken back to his place. He's under the impression that she works for someone who's after him ... until she finally gets him to know the truth about her bloodline. Then they partner up since he's a vampire hunter himself aka a hit-man ... he trains her ... they get closer ... they start working .... and the question is will she let herself fall for what she grew up thinking was wrong/evil?

All I can say is I'm hooked ... 4 out of 5 stars easily. To find out more about this book, series or any of Jeaniene Frost's other books then check out her website.

Now I know I can't love anyone but you, You make me think that maybe I won't die alone

"Dead and Gone" by Charlaine Harris, everybody wants a piece of Sookie these days ... Some fae want her dead. Quinn and Bill want to be her lover/boyfriend again. The government want to find out how she knew where people were after the bombing happened, and once they know they'd like to use her for themselves. Eric wants her all to himself without asking her for permission first. And more ....

5 out of 5 stars. I really liked this book ..... it was more along the lines of letting the readers know about the details instead of the action itself ... but it brought all of the multiple stories that this series has into play and I really liked it! Sookie isn't completely her brave self in this one .... actually she's mostly out of it .... and because of that I can't wait to find out with will happen next.

For more information on the Sookie Stackhouse series or other of Charlaine Harris' books then please check out her website.

When opposites attract...

So far in my major book reading lately I have found that no one else but Susan Elizabeth Phillips can write a great romance novel where every single one (thus far that I've read) deals with opposites attracting to each other (or at least that's what the characters believe in the beginning). My favorite of her novels is still "Match Me If You Can" from her The Chicago Stars books.

However, I just finished reading "Ain't She Sweet"!! And I have to say it has become my second fave out of all her books! Definitely 5 out of 5 stars! It's all about Sugar Beth (a Southern Belle who growing up has made her town resent from all the trouble she caused) and Colin (a British writer who moved to the south and when he started to try making a name for himself, met his match - not always in the best way either). The story is really charming ... and I like how Sugar Beth and Colin "overcome their demons". So-to-speak. =0)

To find out more on this novel or others by Susan Elizabeth Phillips then check out her website.

... the magic's in the music and the music's in me ...

Some Fae are coming out to play in Dana Marie Bell's "Dare To Believe" (part of the Gray Court series - Book 1). Leo has been working in his company for 5 years and even though he became the CEO of it during the recent years he just found out which employee of his has been enticing him. The only problem is she wont stay around him long enough to get to know her, let alone an introduction. Until he plans on finally doing so at the company's annual masquerade ball....
....Ruby has had a crush on her boss ever since she first started with the company. Yet she knows inter-office romances aren't good so she avoids him ...... even though it's mostly she's just to shy and believes she'll make a fool of herself by drooling to much over him. Anyway, they finally meet and talk at the party .... Now Leo doesn't want Ruby to go....

3.5 out of 5 stars. Dana Marie takes on a different world in this book (dealing with the Fae Courts) and I really like the setup. The characters are great ... makes you just want to get to know them more. This is more then just sex and finding each others mates like her Halle Pumas' series, which makes this story that much more interesting. You should definitely check it out!!

To find out more about this book and/or series, or any other of Dana's books then check out her website!

Disappointmentville: Playing with Fire Series, Book 3

Format: Kindle Edition | File Size: 499 KB | Release Date: August 2010 | Publisher: Samhain Publishing

"Scandalous" [Playing with Fire Series, Book 3] by Karen Erickson

My Book Summary : Ever since she was a teenager, Alexa (Lex or Lexi), has had a crush on Eric (her older brother's boyfriend). Now years later at her brother's wedding she greets Eric again planning on catching up. However, what she didn't expect was to find her attraction to him to still be strong or to find that even though he has another boyfriend now, he is finding her more attractive by the second. When they end up kissing each other, a little later at the reception, the sparks ignite between them, but once they separate Eric says they've made a mistake and walks away from her.

A few days later Alexa finds a voicemail message from Eric on her cell asking if she would like to meet up for drinks with his boyfriend (Brandon) and himself. She accepts and meets them at a restaurant, only to find that they have ulterior motives. Which are that Brandon was intrigued about Eric's kiss with her and was wondering if she would like to have some fun with them for a night?

If she says yes she might find the thing that will ease the restlessness she's been feeling lately ... they all might fall in love ... or they could ruin a good relationship between the guys and a growing friendship between each other .... would it all be worth it? Maybe so ...

My Book Review : 2.5 out of 5 stars. My favorite character was Eric ... he sounded like a great guy. The plot was good but didn't end up the way I wanted it to which is the reason for the low rating. I think if it ended the way I wanted then I would have given it a 4 out of 5 stars. *shrug* But if you don't mind reading a bit of m/m or m/f/m action then I think you'll be interested in this book.

Book Teaser(s) :
The number was unfamiliar, and she frowned, punching a button so she could read the text message.
I want to see you
Frowning, she immediately texted back.
Who is this?
Her answer came back quick.
Correction. We both want to see you. Tonight.
Her skin sizzled, and she glanced about the room, thankful no one was lurking about.
Eric is that you? ~ within Chapter 6

Someday we’ll know, If love can move a mountain ...

Can two people, who've grown up as sworn enemies, ever become something more? In "Comanche Moon" (part of the The Comanche Series) by Catherine Anderson is about a prophecy and how it brings these two people from opposing sides, Hunter of the Wolf and Loretta, together during 1860's life in Texas. Both have means to hate each other as both of their "people" have killed each others loved ones. But could that common difference actually bring them together or rip them apart even more?

3 out of 5 stars. It's definitely a telling story of those who lived during the Civil War time period. I mean everyone is just defending their own loved ones, the only problem is that (like what still happens now in any war) the ones who really get hurt and the ones that aren't even fighting in the war (the women and children). Very touching, and emotional. Good read. (However .... I think it dragged in a few areas ... still good though.)

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