The Price of A Kiss - Forbidden Men 1 - Linda Kage

Price of a Kiss (Forbidden Men, #1)Price of a Kiss by Linda Kage

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Here's how I felt reading this book:

There was real potential, I thought how cool, a male gigolo and a damaged college student!  I must read this!!!  But the college student talked as if she was 12-13 max.  Her personality was obnoxious at best. Some of the lines from the book were ridiculous. 

Here's the good, I enjoyed the first 80% of the book, after that point I started skimming the pages until I was finished.  Mason's little sister Sarah was the saving grace for me, I really enjoyed reading about Reece's interaction with her.  Some parts of Mason and Reece's relationship were cute.  Some were ridiculous.  Mason's mom was awful, Mrs. Garrison was a good villain.  I don't know I'm so mixed on this.

I keep going back and forth, and I give this book 2.5 stars, if you have something you are more eager to read, read that first.  All in all this is a forgettable book.  And if I never hear the word gigolo again I'll be okay as it was said 5000+ times in this novel.  I realize I am in the minority here with this review and I wish the story delivered as much as I had hoped it would.

Breathe - Abbi Glines - Sea Breeze #1

Everyone knows I'm a huge Abbi Glines fan and I decided to try out the Sea Breeze series...

Breathe (Sea Breeze, #1)Breathe by Abbi Glines

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Jax Stone for book boyfriend anyone!!??

So the first thing I noticed about this book that I devoured, was how real Sadie White appeared. She was down to earth, caring, compassionate, and everything you want in a heroine. She's a good girl and mature beyond her years.  I felt empathy towards her situation. Sadie is in high school with a pregnant mother who wouldn't work, so Sadie works in her mothers place. Anyways I love Jax Stone and I loved the relationship between these two.

If you want something that is an easy, quick, carefree, HEA read, then check this out! I was hooked from the start and couldn't put it down... Just a feel good book.

Bound - Brenda Rothert

For a limited time get this book FREE for Kindle!

Bound (Fire on Ice, #1)Bound by Brenda Rothert

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I've been looking for a 5 star book for awhile now and all I can say is that this book will completely captivate you from the first page.  By the end of the first chapter I was emotionally invested in both of the main characters.  I started reading this around midnight, just to read a chapter or two before bed, and stayed up most of the night to finish....

So this book will take you on an emotional roller coaster.  Both Kate and Ryke meet while facing their own personal tragedies during a grief support group.  I absolutely loved that this wasn't a "love at first sight" book and the two characters became close friends and took their relationship slow, both facing their personal demons before pursuing a romantic relationship.

Both characters are damaged and they grow so much from the beginning to end... Just an incredible page turner... I'm yawning and need to catch a few hours of shut eye so I 100% recommend this book, I love Jason Ryker, and just WOW!
