What a cute story! I loved both Tilly and Byrant. Tilly unwisely ignored the dire predictions in a chain letter, and her love life has been cursed ever since. If there’s a good looking, single guy in the area, she will, without a doubt, turn into a klutz and completely humiliate herself in front of him. Flying milkshakes, tripping into doors, landing in a plate of shrimp linguine – each scenario is embarrassingly possible, and has domed her to a life of being depressingly single. Read more

I’m just a little torn about Staking His Claim. I loved the set up – Lucy’s big brother has asked his buddy, Matt, to pick her and her friend up and drive them to NYC. When Sasha blows her off to cuddle up with her boyfriend, Lucy’s resigned to going solo – until she sees Matt. She impulsively lies and tells Matt that she’s Sasha, and that Lucy has headed off with her boyfriend. She knows that Matt would never put the moves on her if he knew who she really was, and she’s dying to get to know Matt better. When his car breaks down, forcing them to check into a motel, they give into their attraction for each other, and Lucy realizes, with a sick feeling in the pit of her stomach, that she’s made a terrible mistake. She really likes Matt, and he brings out a wild side of her she didn’t know she possessed. Once Matt realizes that he’s been duped, though, she knows that he’ll never forgive her. Read more

Let the Drama Fest begin! And, sadly, end, in the last book of Karen Ann Hopkins’s series of forbidden love. Rose and Noah make so many poor decisions, cause so much misery for themselves, but I can’t help but hope that they find a path to happiness. Both of them have lied, acted in ways that they know is wrong, and I still sympathize with them. Their families, and Noah’s community, conspire to keep them apart, when all they long for is to be together. Because both are young and willful, they are determined to find a way to be together, even with so much opposition to their relationship. After tragedy strikes, Noah realizes that life is too short to allow his community to drive him away from Rose, and he leaves the Amish church. Will he be happy in the English world? Read more

Mr. Virile and the Girl Next Door (Entangled Indulgence)
Mr Virile and the Girl Next Door is a fun read. While I found the set up for the story weak and not very believable, I did enjoy the couple and the chemistry they created. I have a hard time believing that their agents would put their livelihoods in danger by setting them up, though. I would hope that both Holly and Dane would have more professional agents representing them! Read more
Fighting Love (Love to the Extreme)
May Contain Spoilers
I wanted to like Fighting Love better than I did, but the selfish hero marred the read for me. It took far too long for Tommy “Lightning” Sparks to realize how important Julie was, and how empty his life would be without her in it. Every time I thought he had made some progress towards becoming a more caring human being – bzzzzzzz – he turned into a huge jerk again. Even his initial motivation for finally getting together with Julie is based on jealousy and the need to possess her so nobody else could have her. He acted like my dog, Poppy. The only time she wants Bumble’s ball is when he wants to play with it. Then pandemonium ensues as they battle over who controls that stupid orange ball. Read more
