Heartbreaker by B J Daniels

Heartbreaker by BJ DanielsπŸ™‚πŸ™‚πŸ‘πŸ‘

Heartbreaker by B J Daniels was a great read.  This is the second book in the Montana Justice series where the Judge JT Landusky calls for a favor and the whole book is about trying to help him.   I loved the setting of Flathead Lake in this book.  

Thorn Grayson is happy up on his mountain, isolated from the world.  However, when the judge called Thorn, he is off looking for a crashed plane.  Thorn not only finds the plane, he finds JJ, a woman who is smart, suspicious and very difficult.  Just when he finally convinces her to leave (trust me it was not easy) the plane explodes. That just starts the confusion and the chase.  We have mistaken identities, car chases and ransom demands, while JJ and Thorn try to find the missing person and the kidnappers. Of course both of them are so attracted to the other, which adds a layer of HEAT.  

I really enjoyed Heartbreaker and how the plot moved along.  It reminded me of the sinuous mountain roads that they had to escape on with all the twists and turns.  The intricacies of the story line with all the interesting characters kept you on edge. I liked both of the main characters of JJ and Thorn. Their growing relationship was special.  Heartbreaker by B J Daniels was a great read.

Restless Hearts by BJ Daniels

Restless Hearts by BJ Daniels πŸ™‚πŸ™‚πŸ‘πŸ‘

BJ Daniels has a new book coming out this month, Restless Hearts which also starts a new series called Montana Justice.  The book was called a romantic suspense, but it was more of a mystery and drama. I like how the two main characters were private investigators, which helped keep everything step by step.  I did enjoy how they researched the murder step by step.  

 

Blaze McClintock came home, really she was sent home by Judge JT Landusky. (The judge that saved her life.) When she left home, she was never coming back, but with her father arrested for murder and refusing all help, it was time.  However, Blaze does not come alone. With Jake Horn (an ex and still in love with her) helping, they discover that her father is innocent, but too many people want the truth to stay hidden.  

 

Together Blaze and Jake work the case by asking questions and looking for evidence.  They also start talking again with Jake reminding Blaze how much he loves her. Blaze’s father has more than a few secrets as does several people in town, which makes too many people could be the killers.  

 

Restless Hearts by BJ Daniels is a fun ‘who dun it’ with romance read. 

 

Iron Will by BJ Daniels

Iron Will by BJ DanielsπŸ™‚πŸ™‚πŸ‘πŸ‘

Iron Will by BJ Daniels was a fun, suspenseful read.  Hank Cardwell left home after his fiance committed suicide.  Despite the findings of the town law, Hank knew it could be true.  He hired Frankie Brewster, PI, to come home with him pretending to be his girl to help investigate the matter.  Hank’s father knew his relationship with Hank took a dive when he opposed Hank’s old girlfriend. What I liked about the story was the relentless searching Frankie did.  I like how she questioned Hank’s assumptions. (It didn’t hurt that she was right!) and forced him to face the truths revealed. The romance didn’t hurt!

I enjoyed the characters and the plot line and as always her writing is solid. Iron Will by BJ Daniels was a good read.

Steel Resolve by B.J. Daniels

Steel Resolve by B.J.Daniels🙂🙂❤❤👍👍

Steel Resolve by B.J. Daniels is the first book in a new series about the Cardwell Ranch:  Montana Legacy. What a great start to a series! There is nothing like a psychotic woman chasing a hot cowboy to liven up a story.  Chase Steel left Montana when he was 24. He was young and didn’t always show Mary how much he loved her. Mary was heartbroken. Chase went went on to find his way, but realized he still loved Mary.  Mary worked hard to start over again and find her way, except for that one night she wrote a letter that found Chase. Too bad Fiona (psychotic woman) also found it.

 

I enjoyed reading Steel Resolve by B.J. Daniels.  I liked the story line and the characters, even Fiona.  I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series called Hank’s Story. Steel Resolve was a quick fun read. 

The Governess Game by Tessa Dare

The Governess Game by Tessa Dare 🙂🙂❤❤👍👍

The Governess Game by Tessa Dare is about an unlikely governess.  Alexandra Mountbatten accidentally ends up as a governess to two wild and canny girls.  The girls have scared off every governess, and half the rest of the staff. They have been passed from one family member to another until they ended up with Chase Reynaud, the heir to a Duke and their next guardian.  He has decided that they need enough education to be sent away to school and Alexandra Mountbatten is the person to do it.  

Alexandra really just wants to find a comet.  She is an amateur astonomer and not a governess. Somehow, she ends up staying and manages to get the girls to move forward.  The problem is she is falling for Chase as well. Everyone needs someone to love, even a man who has a rule about no attachments.

The Governess Game by Tessa Dare is the second book in the series Girl Meets Duke. While to governess to Duchess is not different plot, the twist with Alexandra makes the novel new.   The Governess Game by Tessa Dare is a good read.

Road to Victory by Piper Davenport

Road to Victory by Piper DavenportπŸ™‚πŸ™‚πŸ‘πŸ‘

Road to Victory is the fifth book in a series called Dogs of Fire MC by Piper Davenport.  This is a series about hot bikers, alpha males and lots of hot action. I just recently found Piper Davenport and fell in love with her writing and books.  This is a new series for me and I was quite excited to start reading these books. Dogs of Fire MC is not a 1% MC that means that they are mostly clean according to its members. 

 

Aidan "Knight" Quinn is working on working on becoming a vet.  He also is training people with their horses. Kim wants nothing to do with Aiden.  She is focused on her riding and finding distractions when she needs them. Knight is persistent  and is willing to wait for Kim to open up to him. Then one day all sorts of things happen and Knight and Kim begin to understand each other.  Kim’s disastrous past is a huge concern to both of them.  

 

I like how this book focuses on real horses - not just motorcycle’s horsepower.  Road to Victory was a fun read mixing old and new technology. I think Kim, despite her struggles shows a lot of fortitude to move forward to the future.  I enjoyed how they found their way together and hoped they could find their way to each other permanently. Road to Victory by Piper Davenport was a good read.

Primal Need by Piper Davenport

Primal Need (Primal Howlers #2) by Piper DavenportπŸ™‚πŸ™‚πŸ‘πŸ‘

Primal Need by Piper Davenport is the second book of Primal Howlers.  Primal Howlers are a MC Club out of Colorado. The President is Thorne “Sundance” Graves is a man who has focused on the good of the group, not himself.  He has raised three children alone after the death of his wife. Now he is struggling with cancer and his MC is being tested by another club.  Wyatt Bates is not willing to put her heart out there. She is attracted to Sundance and does not want to. She wants to take care of her brother and herself.  But Sundance might be her exception.   

I have only recently found Piper Davenport and her novels.  I have spent a lot of time this weekend falling for her MC world.  I am a new convert to her writing. I liked the story of Sundance and Wyatt.  Primal Needs by Piper Davenport is a fun hot read!

Primal Howl by Piper Davenport

Primal Howl by Piper DavenportπŸ™‚πŸ™‚πŸ‘πŸ‘

Primal Howl by Piper Davenport is the first book in a new MC series called Primal Howler MC.  The book introduces us to two new clubs but focuses primarily on the Howlers from Colorado. I have not read books by this author before, but will pick up the next one in the series.

Orion is the oldest son of the president of Primal Howler and is anticipated to be the next president.  Orion feels he is being pushed and hassled by his dad. Then he meets Raquel. She has moved to Colorado to go to college and work on her thesis, but her bestie convinces her to check out the wildside and go to a biker bar (Raquel’s brother is in another MC).  Of course her brother has contacted the local group to keep an eye on Raquel and her bestie. Orion and Raquel can’t seem to keep their hands to themselves and that is when things get a little interesting - like very interesting!

The book had some humor, lots of hotness, and conflicts galore.  The pace was okay in the storyline, but the characters were fun. Primal Howl by Piper Davenport was a fun read. 

Keeping the Biker's Oath by Piper Davenport

Keeping the Biker’s Oath (book 5) Dogs of Fire MC: Savannah Chapter πŸ™‚πŸ™‚πŸ‘πŸ‘

Keeping the Biker’s Oath by Piper Davenport  is the fifth book in the Savannah Chapter. Dogs of Fire Motorcycle Club are located in various places in the US.  These particular novels are set in Savannah. Each book can be read as a stand alone, but you can also read the whole group in order, which is what I choose to do. The club is not a 1% club.  They work to stay on the correct side of the law however, sometimes it is really hard.

The story of Doc and Olivia was the most intense of all the couples introduced to us.  Doc is a real doctor and Olivia has been his forever person on and off for years. Their relationship is up and down almost simeotaneously.  Olivia, quite frankly does the best job of damaging her own relationship with Doc daily. While she was not my favorite character, I couldn’t stop reading the book and hoping for them.  

The book was full of hot sexy scenes with language and erotica.  It is not a book for everyone, but in truth, I enjoyed reading the novels and enjoyed how the bikers and their families interacted.  If you want to read hot MC book, this would be your next read. Keeping the Biker’s Oath (book 5) by Piper Davenport was a good read. 

 

The Arrangement by Sylvia Day

The Arrangement by Sylvia Day πŸ™‚πŸ™‚πŸ‘πŸ‘

The Arrangement by Sylvia Day is a small compilation of three historical romance novelettes. The stories are full of characters who you don't think would go together but somehow end up being wonderful couples. Mischief and the Marquess by Sylvia Day, The Duke's Treasure by Minerva Spencer and The Inconvenient Countess by Kristin Vayden are included.

Mischief and the Marquess by Sylvia Day is about two characters, Justin, the Marquess of Fontaine, and Lady Sophie Milton-Riley.  Their mothers are best friends and have decided that their children should be married. Justin and Sophie disagree, but mothers know best.  

Josephine Loman and Beaumont Halliwell are the main characters in The Duke's Treasure by Minerva Spencer .  Jo knows she is plain and not appealing to such a beautiful man like Beau. Beau knows he needs to marry money in order to save his dukedom and Jo is the person.  There is a lovely, yucky woman to hate which helps the love story.  

Diana Katherine Lambson knows she has to save her family from being destitute in The Inconvenient Countess by Kristin Vayden.  The only way she can come up with is to marry Charles Brook, Earl of Barrington, a man that has a horrible reputation as a rake and a cad.  Only the marriage turns out to be more than either expected.  

All three stories in the book, The Arrangement, are fun reads.  They are quick reads with fun characters and stories. The Arrangement is a good read. 

 

A Week at the Shore by Barbara Delinsky

A Week at the Shore by Barbara Delinsky introduces us to the coast of Rhode Island.  The book looks at the life of three sisters, twenty years after their parent’s marriage imploded.  The book's themes of family, love and the difficulty of loss made the story poignant.  There were some interesting questions that added a level of mystery to the story as well.

Mallory went to New York and found a new life for herself and her daughter, Joy.  All that changed when Mallory is brought back to the beach house and her father and (Anne) sister’s life.  Her father’s behavior had become more concerning and her sister was in denial about it.  Then Margo (the third sister) appears and the story with the family complexities winds up.  To top it all off, Jack is still the boy next door and still has feelings for Mallory and questions her father’s innocence from an incident years ago.  

Barbara Delinsky is one of my go to novelist.  This book is an interesting read.  I was not as invested in the beginning as I was toward the end as the book picked up speed.  I really liked how the author portrayed the sisters with all their foibles.  A Week at the Shore by Barbara Delinsky was a good beach read.

 

Because I'm Watching by Christina Dodd

Because I'm Watching by Christina Dodd🙂🙂❤❤👍👍

Because I’m Watching by Christina Dodd was awesome!  So awesome, I totally lost track of time and didn’t finish anything else but the book! The premise and the characters caught me almost immediately.  The situation that sets up the book, certainly starts things off with a bang.  I don’t normally like creepy, but I locked all the doors and kept on reading.  I have to admit - I might have yelled at the character once or twice.

Jacob Denisov came back from war, changed forever.  He was slowly killing himself, while wallowing in grief and guilt, until Madeline Hewitson drives her car right into his living room.  The shock of it caused Jacob to break out a little and allow Mad Maddie into his world and visa-versa.  I was mesmerized by the interplay between the two and their stories. Jacob has no front wall and still he sits in his living room watching what happens in the neighborhood. Unusual and unfortunate incidents keep happening and Maddie is beginning to look more and more crazy, but is she?

Because I’m Watching by Christina Dodd is a fabulous book.  I hope others enjoy it as much as I did.  I now have to go back and read the first two.  WOW

 

Dead Girl Running by Christina Dodd

Dead Girl Running by Christina Dodd 🙂🙂❤❤👍👍

Dead GIrl Running by Christina Dodd comes out next month.  I enjoy this author, so I was very happy that Harlequin changed their mind and allowed me to preview the book.  I found the story interesting and it kept me on the edge of my seat. I look forward to reading more books in this series.

Kellen Adams works for a hotel on the Pacific Coast in a place called Yearning Sands.  She was the assistant manager left in charge while the owners went on vacation. As a main character, she is a complicated person.  Kellen survived an abusive husband, a missing year, living on the streets, a stint in the army and eventually a new place to live and be at home.  Meanwhile, not all is easy going at the hotel, smuggling, a murder, and a murder mystery weekend, flashing lights and missing people. So many twists and turns made the story intense.  Information is slowly leaked out as the story moves between the past and the present.

Dead Girl Running by Christina Dodd is the first book in a new series called Cape Charade. I liked many of the characters. The book takes place near Virtue Falls, another series by the same author.  There was a small overlap of a character, but certainly not enough take away from the story if you haven’t read any other of her novels. Dead Girl Running by Christina Dodd is a good read!

 

Forever My Duke by Olivia Drake

Forever My Duke by Olivia DrakeπŸ™‚πŸ™‚πŸ‘πŸ‘

Forever My Duke by Olivia Drake is the second novel in the Unlikely Duchesses series.  I missed reading the first novel, but was able to read this one without any problems. I enjoyed the two main characters (Hadrian and Natalie) and liked the six-year-old orphan Leo.  

Hadrian Ames, the Duke of Clayton, has determined that it is time to wed and has also determined that he is going to marry his second cousin who is quite young.  As he is on the journey to visit her and his former guardian (her father), he meets Natalie Fanshawe and young Leo. Natalie is an American who is on her way to bring Leo to his family from America.  Hadrian and Natalie are a very unlikely pairing especially considering their different stations in life and belief system.  


I enjoyed the writing and found the storyline interesting.  Hadrian did not seem as staid and stuffy as I have found other dukes, but he could be quite imperial when needed.  Forever My Duke by Olivia Drake was a good historical read.

If you want a REAL macabre horror story do some research on how black flies actually "bite you." Just a hint it involves saws and tongues, stay inside and read!

Nice thoughts, yes, hope and grace. I am appropriately reading Gentleman in Moscow who is confined at the Metropol Hotel. Eery coincidence!
Be safe and well.
