He came to Sweetwater to repay a debt. Chance Taylor didn’t expect to have feelings for his new landlady, Tanya Bolton. He could see newly widowed Tanya had worked hard to put the pieces of her world back together, caring for her wheelchair-bound daughter and taking a job at the local bank.

Chance’s arrival interrupted Tanya’s routine…and brought unexpected happiness to her life.

But the secret obligation he struggled with meant Chance could lose Tanya—and his chance for a fresh start—forever.

A man with baggage, a woman with different baggage, but a pull that’s undeniable. Oh, and it’s Christmas.

I picked this book up because of the dog on the cover. I won’t lie. I like a good black Labrador book. This one didn’t disappoint. It’s cute and sweet. I liked the characters, and I wanted them to have a happy ending. I also wanted to know if the dog got a happy ending, too. Thankfully, everyone did.

I liked the friendship between Tanya and Chance. They hit it off right away, even when they didn’t realize it. It was cute. It also showed that sometimes the best things are worth waiting for. I liked the side story of Tanya’s daughter coming out of her shell and Chance showing them both they weren’t alone.

If you’re looking for a cute holiday read, then this is the one for you.

The writing kept up at a great clip and I got a real treat.

And nothing—not even a bullheaded, devilishly handsome wrangler named Clint McAlister—is going to stop her.

How could Clint stop a firecracker like Samantha? So what if her eyes are as green as spring grass? Or that she sits a horse like a cowboy’s sweetest dream. Clint almost got his heart broken by one high-toned city girl. All he has to do is keep his hands and his heart to himself until this one goes back where she came from and leaves him—and the mustangs—alone.

She’s losing her sight and he wants to keep a precious view hidden. Things shouldn’t work for these two, but they somehow do.
I picked up this book because, well, I liked the guy on the cover. Then I read the blurb and decided this was something I needed to read. She’s losing her sight? He’s got land with wild Mustangs? Um, yes, I want to read this.

Pamela Britton does write a good story. It’s polished and flowed well for the most part. There were moments I thought were rather cliché, but it happens. The ending was a little too… fast? I don’t know. It was rather abrupt. Boom, done, kind of abrupt.

Still, Clint is a good character. He doesn’t want to admit he cares, but he does and he’s willing to go out of his way for her. I liked him. Sam had some issues I wasn’t thrilled about. She doesn’t want to be babied because of her condition, but she acts like it’s a big deal to hide it. It’s almost like she doesn’t give anyone time to process their reaction to it because she wants the situation to be normalized. Someone losing their sight is something you need time to process. The other thing that niggled me about this book was the loose ends. There were a couple story threads that just weren’t dealt with and it bugged me. I won’t give away spoilers, though.

The characters do have chemistry, so that’s good. I read this in the course of an afternoon and it was a good read. If you’re looking for something to pass the time, a beach read or something for a lazy afternoon, then this might be the one for you. Check it out.

Labor and delivery nurse Amanda is in Sydney for work, not to be distracted by “the baby whisperer”—neonatal specialist Dr. Lucius West. But Amanda loves a challenge—especially an intriguing, handsome one. Their fiery clashes in the OR soon turn into passion in the bedroom. But there are consequences to Amanda and Lucius’s insatiable desire…and they’ll have nine months to face them!

These two better choose what they want and fast—they’ve got nine months and counting.

I love the books of Susan Carlisle. I know I’ll get engaging characters and great plots. This book was no different. I was swept away in the writing and couldn’t put it down.

I met Lucius in the first book in this series (Risking Her Heart on the Single Dad by Annie O’Neil) and wasn’t sure I’d like him. He could be a bit of a pain. But I loved the way he evolved in this book. He grew and it was nice to see it.

Amanda has baggage. She’s not a perfect character, but that’s what made her great. That’s what made her relatable. She can be just as fiery and pesky as Lucius, so it was great to see them get together. I rooted for them all the way.

The scenes between them are steamy, but just right and I couldn’t get enough.

If you want a book that’s steamy, but not too much, and will warm your heart, then this is the book for you. Recommended.

Sometimes things just don’t work out, but sometimes they do.

This is the first book by Annie O’Neil I’ve read, but it won’t be the last. The writing flowed well and this was easily an afternoon read. It’s a simple book, but that’s not a bad thing. I knew what the characters wanted and how they’d get where they wanted to go, so I could just enjoy the story instead of trying to overanalyze it. It made my afternoon.

There’s a lot of medical information in the book, but don’t let that distract you. The two characters, Kirri and Ty are both damaged. I liked seeing them try to find a way together and the way his daughter warmed up to Kirri was great.

If you want a story that’s sweet, simple and a great way to spend an afternoon, then you can’t go wrong with Risking Her Heart on the Single Dad.

A plan born of desperation…

Once the toast of society, Grace Cabot and her sisters now await the shame of losing high status and fine luxuries upon the death of the Earl of Beckington. The dire circumstances are inevitable unless, of course, Grace’s wicked plot to seduce a wealthy viscount into marriage goes off without a single hitch. But once a stolen embrace with the wrong man leads her to be discovered in the arms of Geoffrey, the Earl of Merryton, her plan takes a most unexpected—and scorching—twist.

…and altered by passion.

Governed by routine and ruled by duty, Geoffrey had no desire for a wife before he succumbed to Grace’s temptation. Though his golden-haired, in-name-only bride is the definition of disorder, he can’t resist wanting her in every way. But once her secrets meet his, society might consider their lives to be ruined beyond repair…while Geoffrey might just see it as a new beginning.

Two imperfect wrongs just might make the best right of all.

Julia London writes engaging characters sure to charm the reader. This was definitely the case with this book. I loved them, I hated them and at times I wanted to put the book down, but I’m glad I saw it through. The writing is crisp. The characters are imperfect and frankly, this was a good book.

Grace is unique. She’s feisty and knows what she wants. Initially, she wasn’t one of my favorites because well…trapping a man in marriage seemed…silly. She’s so forthright otherwise, why doesn’t she stick to what works or better yet, find a guy who likes her pluckiness? That aside, I grew to enjoy her character and liked how she worked with Jeffery. They didn’t seem to me to be suited for each other, but that’s what I liked–seeing them having to coexist.

Jeffery…where do I begin? The guy has issues. I liked how the author tackled his form of OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) because it made him realistic. People have issues. His fixation with seeing women tied up and in sexual situations was new, but it’s not really heavy BDSM. Honestly, he just likes a little satin mixed in. Honestly, I have yet to meet a guy who doesn’t see most everything in a sexual fashion. I didn’t dislike Jeffery, but he was hard to take at times.

Still, this made for a good read and one I’d pick up again.

If you like books that are a little off the beaten path and sure to please, then this might be the book for you.
