3 stars--Homecoming (Boys of Fall #3) by Shannon Stacey

Homecoming was all about Jen and Sam who had a hot and heavy night months earlier during a town fundraiser. And now he's back in town to help the local football team whose coach is out on medical leave. And all that hot and heavy passion and attraction? Still sparking strong even if it's the last thing either of them thinks they need since he's only there temporarily and she's not looking for a short term fling...

Maisey Yates. Yall. She's so fun! And has such interesting hero/heroine pairings. This one, whew. It was a doozie. A couple quotes this week.

This first one. I totally need friends like hers. They also ply a girl with pie and made me laugh a couple times. She'd just told them she wasn't hanging out with them that night because she was busy and then hemmed and hawed about telling them why...

Tasty Delights-- Asparagus & Tomato "Carbonara"

So I was scrolling through Pinterest and saw a recipe for a vegetarian carbonara that looked...amazing. And I decided to give it a try. Thing is...the egg bit of the recipe totally creeps me out (it's cooked just by way of the hot noodles) and I just...couldn't. I know. I know it cooks. But in my head...nope. So I altered and used some butter and almond milk to help make the sauce. So not really a carbonara but it's going to be my version of it.

And it was delicious! Not to mention super easy.

3 stars-- Cody's Come Home by Mary Sullivan

Cody's Come Home started off very strong for me. It was action packed and had me anxious as the heroine found herself in desperate straights--not only being chased through the woods and shot at but injuring herself and being trapped in the woods overnight. I was all in and captivated especially after a childhood friend, who'd just come back home, becomes her rescuer and defender against someone who is clearly out to harm her. But things puttered out for me a bit in the end.

4 stars-- A Duke to Remember (Season for Scandal #2) by Kelly Bowen

Oh my. Bowen totally rocked this one. From start to finish I was seriously smitten with A Duke to Remember.

The quick of it is that a duke has died and his heir? Well, most think him long dead since he disappeared as a child. Everyone but his sister and his mother who are being made out to look crazy. So it's come to Elsie and her team to hunt down the long lost heir and help him claim his title from a cousin who will stop at nothing to claim it himself.

3 stars-- The Stranger (Wounded Warrior #2) by Anna del Mar

Southern girl vs Alaska. Oh dear. The Stranger was full of exhilarating action, family drama, and enough heat to keep you warm even during the coldest of Alaskan nights.

The quick of it is that Summer's younger sister has run away and she's headed to Alaska to track her down. A somewhat simple task if only Alaska would stop trying to kill her! Yeah. She's having no luck with this state at all. Thankfully a hot stranger dealing with his own demons comes to her rescue. Though he may just be a handful all on it's own. Mmhm.

So I liked a number of things about this one...
