[Manga Maniac Cafe] Can you tell us a little about Letters from Home?

[Bethanne Strasser] Letters from Home is a story of finding love where you least expect it. When Lena Rodriguez comes home from a deployment, she expects to meet the man of her dreams. Instead, the man who keeps grabbing her attention is Zachary Benson, the friend who has always been more like a brother. It’s a sweet [okay, not really sweet as in--a sensual rating. :D :P], poignant story about going beyond friendship to a love that will last a lifetime.

Review: Falling for Mr Wrong by Inara Scott

 

Falling for Mr. Wrong: A Bencher Family Book (Entangled Indulgence)

May Contain Spoilers

Review:

I had a few problems with Falling for Mr Wrong, though I did enjoy the read.  I thought that the plot relied on too many convenient coincidences, and  at one point, it felt too contrived.  After repeatedly pushing Kelsey away, Ross takes advantage of her to close a business deal.  My biggest problem with the book is that I never really cared for Ross.  Sure, he’s a great dad, but he’s not such a great supporter of Kelsey. Because she climbs mountains, and because he’s risk adverse, he doesn’t even try to see her point of view until very close to the end of the novel.  He also has a distressing way of looking down on her, and I had a hard time getting over that.

Review: Some Like it Sinful by Robbie Terman

 

 

May Contain Spoilers

Review:

Some Like it Sinful was bumped to the top of the review pile for one reason – it’s about a hockey player.  Oh, and a pastry chef.  How could I resist this combination of sugar and spice vs. tough guy brawn?  I’m from Detroit and I’ve been a Red Wings fan forever.  I live with a hockey nut, too, so there’s no escape from the madness, at least until the Wings are knocked out of the playoffs – again.  Then the whole city pouts while putting on a brave face and vowing, “We’ll go all the way next year!”  So, yeah, I wanted to read this – badly!

Review and Giveaway–Asking for Trouble by Tessa Bailey

 

May Contain Spoilers

Review:

In a short time, Tessa Bailey has become a favorite author.  I always get a happy tingle when she has a new release.   While not all of the elements work for me, the romances are hot, hot, hot, the character interaction keeps me engaged in the story, and the dialog is snappy and amusing.   Like today’s anticipated Thanksgiving feast,  I devoured Asking for Trouble, enjoying this guilty pleasure.
