Book Review - Taken Not Spurred by Ruth Cardello

ABOUT THE BOOK


From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Ruth Cardello comes the steamy debut to the Lone Star Burn series.
Would-be writer Sarah Dery has just turned twenty-five and feels like her life is on hold. She’s done squat with her English degree and is just killing time working for her parents. So, when the opportunity to spend the summer working on a ranch in Texas comes her way, she jumps at the chance—figuring it might be just the jolt she needs to get her creative juices flowing.
Tony Carlton is a handsome and reclusive horse trainer with a tortured past and an eye for trouble, this time in the form of a naked blonde stranger he finds in his shower.
The wrong turn that led Sarah into the arms of this sexy, brooding cowboy turns out to be just what she needed to find her steamy inner voice, but will their connection be enough to break down Tony’s defenses?
Revised edition: Previously published as Gentling the Cowboy, part of the Texan Nights series, this edition of Taken, Not Spurred includes editorial revisions.

REVIEW


First of all, this story is HOT, HOT, HOT!  I think it’s important to warn a reader first in case they are easily offended, however this shouldn’t scare you away because it is also one of the best written stories by Ruth Cardello.  I’ve been a fan of hers for a while now, and it’s been great seeing her grow as a writer and a storyteller. 


I was also laughing all the way through the book.  The heroine’s sense of humor was a wonderful mixture of spunky, snarky, and sexy.  I recommend this to anyone who loves a good love story and anyone who enjoys a well written book with fun characters.



OVERALL RATING - 5 STARS!
MATURITY RATING - 18+ a little steamy

Mr. Miracle: A Christmas Novel by Debbie Macomber

ABOUT THE BOOK

Harry Mills is a guardian angel on a mission: help twenty-four-year-old Addie Folsom get her life back on track—and, if the right moment strikes, help her find love. Posing as a teacher at a local college in Tacoma, Washington, Harry is up to the task, but not even he can predict the surprises that lay in store.

After trying to make it on her own, Addie has returned home to Tacoma for the holidays, but this time she plans to stay for good, enrolling in the local community college to earn her degree. What she doesn’t plan to do is run into Erich Simmons.

Addie and her next-door neighbor, Erich, are like night and day. Growing up, he was popular and outgoing while she was rebellious and headstrong, and he never missed an opportunity to tease her. Now she intends to avoid him entirely, yet when they’re suddenly forced to spend Christmas together, Addie braces for trouble.

Perhaps it’s the spirit of the season or the magic of mistletoe, but Addie and Erich soon find they have more in common than they thought—and that two people who seem so wrong for each other may actually be just right. With a little prompting from a certain angelic teacher, the two are in for a holiday miracle they’ll never forget


REVIEW


I am a fan of Debbie Macomber, but I liked this novel more than most of them.  Sure, this is a predictable and heartwarming novel, but that is what I expect from a Christmas Novel.  What I liked about this one in particular is the spin on the “ghosts of Christmas past” and guardian angel concepts.  Sure there are parts of this story that are unrealistic.  At no point did I think “hey, this could really happen.”  But it did leave me with a sense of hope and faith.

Book Review - Fight For her by JJ Knight

ABOUT THE BOOK


What do you do when you’ve just lost everything? 

You fight. 

For four years, I’ve been punching and kicking my way through hundreds of unworthy MMA opponents. 

For four years, I’ve kept seeing her face. Maddie’s face. My one great love. 

After a brutal cage match that sent me to the ER, Maddie took off across the country. Six months pregnant. She left to have my baby as far from me as she could. No more violence, she said. No fighting. 

I had to live with it. I had no choice. 

But last night I got a phone call from my little girl, asking me to come to her fourth birthday party. Her friends all have daddies, she said. Would I be hers? 

Damn right I will. 

I decide that when I get to New York, I’m not going to care about Maddie. I’m not going to even look at her. 

But I do. And the moment I see her again, I know one thing is true. 

REVIEW

I have read some of JJ Knight’s serials before, and this was by far the best of any that I have read previously.  It has been a pleaser seeing the author grow as a story teller and a writer and the first installment of this new series shows she is one of the elite writers of this genre.  I really look forward to getting to know Parker and Maddie more as the story continues.
