Review and Giveaway: Worth the Risk by Claudia Connor

Review:

I actually wanted to read Worth the Risk before Claudia Connor’s other book, Worth the Fall, was even on my radar.  I saw that the heroine was a hippotherapist, and that’s all I needed to see.  I didn’t even read the blurb beyond “one therapeutic horseback ride at a time.”  Yup, throw a random horse reference in there, and I’m on board.  But then Worth the Fall was highly recced to me, and despite my aversion to all of those kids, I read it.  And loved it.  And I loved Worth the Risk more!  So the author is now on my auto read list.

IF YOU CAN’T STAND THE HEAT…

Teagan O’Malley can handle a crisis. She’s a paramedic, it’s her job. But she never expected to land in the kitchen of her father’s pub, with no notice, no cash, and no room for error. The kitchen is not her favorite place. Lucky for her, she just scraped a bad-boy chef off the pavement after a motorcycle accident—and something about him says he can turn up the heat in more ways than one.

Adrian Holt has had a rough few years, and he’s not eager to get tangled up in anything more complicated than a good risotto. But with a broken arm and a head full of bad memories, he needs a challenge to keep him sane. Teagan’s dare-me attitude and smoldering mess of a bar are just what the doctor ordered. And the two of them together might cook up some even better medicine…

Review and Giveaway: Perfect Couple by Jennifer Echols

 

 

Review:

Perfect Couple sounded like a cute read, so I was excited to receive an eARC.  I had a couple issues with the story right off the get go, and they prevented me from completely enjoying the book.  Your mileage will probably vary.  When all was said and done, I didn’t love it, but I didn’t hate it, either.  It’s a quick read that kept me turning the pages for an afternoon and I don’t regret reading it.
