Tall, dark and muscled like a god, Beau Barnett is great with an axe. Every woman in Rockhead Point wants a taste of the mountain man. Including me.

Except he doesn’t even know my name. I’m just the girl behind the counter filling his coffee, while he grunts and grumbles, barely making eye contact.

Then a newcomer with a charming smile and a fancy suit shows up in Rockhead Point, and refuses to take no for an answer when he asks me to dinner.

That’s when I find out Mr. Mountain Man not only knows my name… he thinks I’m his property.

Review:

Rating: 1 out of 5 stars


Property Of The Mountain Man is the first book in the Montana Mountain Men series by Gemma Weir and the first and last one I will read. I was in for a "super possessive alpha-male" hero kind of book and I was sorely disappointed. So many things are wrong with this story and I couldn't even enjoy it as an over the top one. Let's begin with the Mountain Man. Beau has been keeping an eye on Bonnie for the past year, making sure that she is safe. He doesn't even know why he does it, but it's his daily routine. Bonnie has been pinning for him for a decade and yet the only words he said to her in the past year were related to his coffee order. One day, a man from a big city came into the cafe, saw Bonnie for the beauty she is, and decided to ask her out. Suddenly Beau acts with jealousy and possessive of Bonnie. Upon his arrival at home, his brothers are the ones to point out that he has feelings for Bonnie and from that moment and on he wants to make sure that everyone knows that Bonnie was his and acts like he has been her boyfriend for the last 93842 years. He went from a dude who ignored and barely talked to Bonnie to a possessed man. I would have been ok with this whole situation IF Beau actually had feelings for Bonnie before the other dude incident. I might hate Bonnie too, but I agreed on one thing with her. He didn't know her and he never bothered to find out more about her. Beau is the kind of man who demands miles and Bonnie wasn't willing to give him even an inch. Bonnie had a whole routine in her life and that dude couldn't find even one thing she did acceptably. There is controlling and then is Beau. Alexa Riley's heroes are so much better. 


Bonnie kept talking about communication and knowing each other, but she was a huge hypocrite who never bothered to initiate either and was just bringing them up to delay her relationship with Beau. There is a part where she ignores Beau's messages which I hate because then she moaned about communication and honestly she did everyone involved a dirty. She neither stood her ground nor did it make it easy for the reader when it came to her accepting her fate to be with Beau. 


The worst thing in the book wasn't anything mentioned above but it's a little related to some things. You see, even though Beau was hanging around Bonnie for the past year, he was also sleeping around. A couple of weeks before the events of the book he slept with a woman who later in the book makes a scene and warns Bonnie about Beau. That is strike number one. The second strike came when Beau thought it was a good idea to take Bonnie to a place where the bartender is a woman he was sleeping with in the past. He and his brothers are hanging out a lot there so why not take Bonnie too? This chapter, where Bonnie is confronted by 2 women from Beau's past, is the reason why I decided to not even consider reading the next books. 


The book was way too over the top and neither character was likable. I would not recommend the book.

  TEASER
 
  ABOUT THE AUTHOR
 
 
Before writing steamy romantic comedy novels, Kayley Loring got a BFA in creative writing from a Canadian university and had a fifteen-year career as a screenwriter in Los Angeles (under a different name). She mostly wrote PG-13 family comedies that studios would pay her lots of money for and then never make into movies. In 2017 she decided to move to the Pacific Northwest and write about all the fun stuff that she wasn't allowed to write about in those PG-13 scripts. Now she’s breathing cleaner air and writing dirtier words. It’s an adjustment she’s happily getting used to.

Review: Spark (Men of Inked Heatwave, #6) by Chelle Bliss

 

Spark (Men of Inked Heatwave 6)

by Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestselling romance author Chelle Bliss.

Can be read as a standalone.

Genre: Contemporary Romance

#Spark #ChelleBliss #NewRelease #Romance #BareNakedWords #MenofInked

The Men of Inked are back
!


Review:

Rating: 5 out of  5 stars

Spark is the 6th book in the Men of Inked: Heatwave series by Chelle Bliss. The series is a spin-off of the Men of Inked and it's about the Gallo cousins. Not all books in the series are stand-alone, although Nick and Jo's story ends in this one. The epilogue of this book does end with a minor cliffhanger that makes me wonder what happened to the characters since book 7 seems to begin with a time jump.

While reading Spark I found what I was missing in the book I was reading before. A hero who has convinced me 100% that he will do anything for his woman. I cannot tell you how much I loved Nick. He was perfect and so protective and supportive which was exactly what Jo needed. I gotta be honest and admit that I have no clue what exactly Jo's job is. Also, I wasn't expecting her to be the heroine because we first see her crying at a taco place. Isn't that a very good first impression? I think so too! She is a kind person and as I was reading I kept liking her more and more. She is a cool heroine to have around and I really liked her. On the romance department, the book was very strong and I was satisfied with what I read. Nick amazing and I couldn't help but fall for him. Jo is the one who completes him and together they make a good couple. Nick's family is very present in the story and they only added to the goodness.

The book was going great until the usual drama came up, you know, the one that tests the relationship between the two main characters, and two things didn't add up. the first is that I found it unbelievable that Nick wouldn't force Jo go to the hospital. After what happened I would have wanted her to be checked by the author. The second thing is that I felt like the same issue that caused problems to Jo didn't feel like it was resolved and more like it was brushed under the rug and rushed.

At first, I was going to give 4 stars to the book because of what I mentioned in the above paragraph, but as I was writing the review I decided that Nick as a hero and Jo and Nick as a couple deserved 5 stars, so I am actually going with the 5-star rating. I do believe that this is the first 5 starred book of the year (and I have read at least 10 books already) so yay for me and the author.

Nick Gallo lives wild and free, avoiding any complications or drama. But when he overhears a conversation at a late-night taco stand, he can’t help but insert his two cents, telling the woman she was too good for that kind of hassle.

Josephine Carmichael lives in the crosshairs of the paparazzi as the child of a Hollywood power-couple. But when her celebrity boyfriend has an affair while they’re on vacation, she takes off to the middle-of-nowhere Florida, ending up crying in her nachos.

And when Nick finds Josephine sleeping in the parking lot of a local store, his protective instincts take over. What starts out as a simple favor, takes them down a road they never imagined.

Spark is the sixth book in the new steamy romance Men of Inked: Heatwave series by Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestselling author Chelle Bliss.

Review: Boone (Eternity Springs: The McBrides of Texas, #3) by Emily March


Release date: December 29th 2020


Blurb:

In Eternity Springs: The McBrides of Texas, New York Times bestselling author Emily March presents a brand new arc set in the Lone Star State that features a family-linked trilogy within the author's romantic series.

With his smooth talk, rugged good looks, and deep pockets, native Texan Boone McBride appears to be a man who has it all. Few people know about the heartbreak behind his decision to leave home, family, and career for the isolation of a small town in the Colorado Rockies. Luckily, time and life in Eternity Springs has worked its healing magic upon his wounded soul, so when he meets obviously troubled Hannah Dupree, Boone sees a chance to pay his good fortune forward. The last thing he anticipates is tumbling into love.

Tragedy has taken everything Hannah loves, and her will to keep going is failing. So when Boone strides into her life determined to save her, it’s easier to go along with him than to resist. Soon she is drawn into the fabric of life in Eternity Springs, and as her spirit begins to heal, her strength returns, and she’s able to go toe-to-toe with this hardheaded, big-hearted Texan. But just when love blooms and happiness is within their grasp, shadows from the past threaten. Hannah and Boone must stand strong and united in order to defeat old ghosts—if they are to create a brand-new life together.
 


Review:

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Boone is the third book in the Eternity Springs: The McBrides of Texas series by Emily March. Each book features a different couple and that's why I would say they are stand alones. The McBrides are three brothers and Boone is the last one to get his happy ending which means that it's the last book in the series.

I disliked the previous two books, so I have no idea what drove me to read this one, but in the end, I am glad I did. For a change, I actually liked this book and I would even recommend it! I feel that the book should come with some potential trigger warnings such as the loss of a child and thoughts of suicide. It's highly emotional and some people might have a problem reading it. The book is a second chance romance, but not in the usual way. Boone and Hannah met for the first time in this book in the present time. I do consider it a second chance because the first time around marriage and family didn't end up well for either of them.

Hannah and Boone have tragic pasts. Hannah's was the most horrible of the two and I totally understand why she gave up everything and started living in a nomadic way. Both of them have lost so many things, so this book is a journey towards healing and finding themselves again. Boone is in a much better place than Hanna is though. The characters were well developed. They had their skeletons which explained their hang-ups in the present (if I may call them that) and how their personalities were shaped when the book began.

The only issue I had with the book is that it felt a little rushed in the end, with some things barely explained and just tied up in a nice bow. My overall impression of the book is a positive one though!

  Blurb: How hard can it be? That was the question rolling around Larissa Mason’s mind just before she asked Hollis Hudson to be her fake boyfriend. It was only supposed to be for five minutes, after all. Granted, that was also before she felt his hand on the small of her back as he charmed the heck out of her family. She hadn’t heard his laugh yet either. And it was definitely before she saw the football god shirtless. Otherwise, she would’ve had an idea of just how hard some things could be. It turns out that pretending to be in love with a crazily handsome, somewhat enigmatic, and absolutely unforgettable tight end (that has an amazing tight end) is easy. Reminding herself that just because opposites attract doesn’t mean they’re forever is much harder. What they have isn’t love—it’s a relationship pact. Right?

Review:

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Good With His Hands is the first book in the Good in Bed series by Lauren Blakely and Lili Valente. I have read and enjoyed books from both authors so it was no question whether or not I was going to read this book. I had some minor issues, to be honest, but overall I have positive feelings about the book.

My biggest issue is that I felt like I had missed a part of the story when it came to Ruby, Jesse, and Claire. Ruby was in an accident with Claire, who is Jesse's sister. Ruby made it out alive, but with severe injuries and Claire died. At the beginning of the book, Jesse gave Ruby a list Claire wrote while she was in the hospital and the two of them together try to cross everything off before Jesse leaves for LA. Both of them mention Claire a lot and she felt like such an important character, but to me, she felt so distant and unfamiliar.

I didn't find Jesse's secret to be such a big deal and I was a little letdown, but I was happy to see that Ruby's reaction to it wasn't dragged for too long. I gotta say, that I wasn't expecting some things to happen and I was surprised to read them. It made the book more realistic though.

Ruby and Jesse as a couple, worked for me. I liked both of them. I didn't connect with Jesse's character much because to me his voice was not as loud and clear as Ruby's was. She was vocal about everything and I feel like I got to know her better as a character.
