Turkey Day

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. It's always nice to step back and spend the day with friends and family completely stuffing your face while your doing it.

Too Wicked to Wed by Cara Elliott

4/5 stars

Lady Alexa is a woman who hates the double standards that are put in place by the Ton and she has no problem telling them what she thinks, especially Connor Linsley. After a few quick meetings and shared kisses they find themselves on the run and trying to figure out who is trying to ruin Connor. What follows them on their journey is the undeniable attraction they have for each other and the unwanted feelings. Aided by friends they fight to figure out what Lady Luck has in store for them.

This was my first book by Cara Elliott and it won't be my last. Her quick and witty dialogue had me burning through the book to see what Alexa would do next. Alexa and Connor where a perfect match for each other and their friends were just as great. I can't wait to read more.

Night Moves by Stephanie Tyler

3.5/5 stars

This book is the fourth in a series and each book has plenty of action from the start to finish. This was Kell and Teddie's book, but Reid plays a big part in it also and sets his book up as well. Kell and Teddie meet by running in to each other, literally, during an op in Mexico. What follows is the three of them running for their lives from two different groups. Without trying to give too much of the plot away, I'll say the chases were the most exciting part as I didn't really feel that much between Kell and Teddie, except for instant sexual attraction. I did like the relationship between Kell and Reid and seeing where they came from and where they are headed. I think I liked Reid the most in this book and the set-up for his book was a really good sub-plot.

Dreaming of the wolf by Terry Spear

3.5/5 stars

I really liked this book and it can be read as a stand alone which is good because somehow I've read them out of order. This one is about Jake Silver and Alicia Greiston. He spots her taking pictures of someone's car and is intrigued with her enough to follow her and try to figure out what she's doing. What he soon learns is she's a bounty hunter trying to get the men she believes killed her mother. After a rocky start and time apart they eventually work together to bring these guys down and find love along the way. The story was good and even though Alicia being a bounty hunter in over her head was a bit tedious at times the humor made up for it. I'm looking forward to reading more in this series.

Just had surgery last week to place a new infusa-port in my chest. It will help in the long tern, but as of right now I'm still in pain and can't figure out why I actually wanted this thing. But, like I said it will make getting IV antibiotics much simpler since my veins are so scarred up their hard to find. Hopefully I'll be able to type better by this weekend cause right now it's killing me.

Artistic Appeal by Andrew Grey

5/5 stars

I really don't think it's possible for Mr. Grey to write anything except great books and Artistic Appeal exceeded my expectations. This is the follow up to Legal Artistry and continues with the process of trying to retrieve stolen art from the Austrian government. Along the way love has been found by the lawyers involved in the case. Gerald and Dieter were first to fall in love and then they take it upon themselves to help out their friend and fellow lawyer Brian.
Brian meets Nicolai at a party and soon they start dating. It seems their relationship is not going to go very far since they have to deal with so many things keeping them apart, an ex-wife and an ex-boyfriend, to name a few. But they do overcome all those and more while figuring out how they fit in each others lives. They were such a strong couple and I loved the way Brian learned ASL to show Nicolai how much he meant to him.

Cry Wolf by Angela Campbell

5/5 stars

This book surprised me in that it was a book about a werewolf but neither MCs were the werewolf. Instead it focused more on a legend about the Woodbine Werewolf and the MCs were trying to figure out what exactly it was. The relationship between Andrea and Sean is built on a friendship they had during college and she fights the attraction they have now. It was a slow build and was very sweet. I also really liked the supporting characters that ranged from a helpful high school kid to Sean's sister and even an irate councilman. Can't wait to read more from Ms. Campbell.
