ARC Review: Dirty Thoughts by Megan Erickson

Dirty Thoughts is the first book in Megan Erickson’s new Mechanics of Love series, which is a spin-off of her Bowler University series.

But when Jenna walks in to Cal’s garage years later looking better than ever, Cal and Jenna are suddenly forced to face everything that they left behind.

ARC Review: Hard To Let Go by Laura Kaye

  Hard To Let Go is the fourth book in Laura Kaye’s Hard Ink series of standalones. This one centers on Beckett Murda and Katherine Rixey. While this one can be read as a standalone, I would highly recommend reading these in order as the story continues from one book to the next. It isn’t necessary to read the previous books to understand this one, but it does increase the reader’s enjoyment and this book builds upon what has previously happened.  As Beckett Murda and the rest of his time start to get to the bottom of who their enemies are that took out half their team and ended their time in the Army, things begin to heat up when Nick’s sister Katherine Rixey shows up. Beckett and Kat don’t seem to be able to have a conversation without sparks flying, and yet they also find themselves drawn to one…

Avon Contemporaries on Sale!

At Wolf Ranch RECOMMENDED: At Wolf Ranch  by Jennifer Ryan is $2.99! This is technically more of a romantic suspense than a contemporary, but I’d say the suspense portion is pretty light. The book also features an awesome beta rancher hero who knows how to cook. Elyse and I did a joint review of the book and gave it a B: Elyse: This book was trope heaven for me. It’s got Country Boy vs City Girl, Unexpected Rescuer, Snowed In… It was like trope confetti. Amanda: Yes! Plus I’ve been on a cowboy kick lately and c’mon, did you see the size of that man’s Stetson on the cover? Admittedly, it was a slow start for me with the phone call and the info dumpage of character details. However once Ella and Gabe were in the same vicinity, the book really took off. Their interactions together were sincere, sweet, and addicting….
