Novella Review: Crazy Stupid Sex by Maisey Yates

 

May Contain Spoilers

Review:

When I first started reading Crazy Stupid Sex, I was a bit apprehensive.  The beginning didn’t instill much confidence, and I felt I have read the same bar pickup scene five times already this year.  Once the action shifted  to an office setting, however, I was all over this read.  It’s sexy, fast-paced, and the hero redeemed himself enough for me to ignore the fact that he had been behaving like a spoiled sloth for the past 10 years, hopping for one hookup to the next, with no sense of connection or commitment at all.  I usually hate guys like that, but Maisey Yates does a good job ripping away his too-cool for school veneer, and I actually warmed up to Caleb by the end of the story.

Review: The Rancher and The Vet by Julie Benson

The Rancher and the Vet (Fatherhood)

May Contain Spoilers

Review:

My favorite trope!  Second chance at love!  The heroine is a vet, which also piqued my interest.  I think the title is misleading, though, because the hero, Reed, runs an electronics company, and he is not a rancher.  Instead, he’s filling in for his brother, Colt, who has been deployed overseas.  Since Colt’s mother-in-law broke her hip, she can’t look after his 14 year old daughter, so it’s Reed to the rescue.  Only Reed doesn’t want to be a hero, and he certainly doesn’t want to be responsible for Jess.  He agrees to look after Jess, but only until other arrangements can be made.
