3.5 stars--Too Hot to Handle (Romancing the Clarksons #1) by Tessa Bailey

Tessa Bailey!!!! *pets the pretty* Pretty much if Tessa's name is on the book... I'm gonna need it. Neeeeeeed it. A new series with siblings on a car trip? Yes, please!

And Too Hot To Handle turned out to be pretty dang fun! A semi-goth heroine, a reformed manwhore hero, bickering siblings and a car trip full of disasters, some lustiness and unexpected romance. Yeah. It was a good time as Rita and her semi-estranged siblings set out on a cross country road trip to fulfill their mother's death bed request that they head East and jump in some icy cold water on New Years. A broken down car before they even make it half way kinda puts a kink in that plan.

Alright so 5 things about Too Hot to Handle!

Woohoo! A new to me author and such a fun read! So Risk of Exposure. She's a spy. He's ex special forces hired to look after said spy by her daddy and she kinda caught him doing so and blackmailed him into helping her with her mission. I loved the two together :D She's kinda bad ass and I LOVED seeing her give him a run for his money...

Tasty Delights-- Breakfast Biscuit Bake

I saw a post a while back where they made a breakfast skillet with a biscuit crust on top and since breakfast is one of my favorite things I decided to play around with some of the things I had in the house and one of my pretty skillets my mom got me--they can go from stove to oven--and this came to be.

It was pretty easy and oh yum! Yeah the noms were good, yall. It did take me a couple of tries to get things right but worth the effort.

Randomly Random-- So I was laying in bed...

The other night I was laying in bed and for some reason I was thinking about all the stuff in the house and I was like hmmm I wonder what item in this house I've had the longest and still use. Not just the oldest item but been with me the longest and like I said still used.

And you know what I came up with?

1.5-2 stars--The Seduction of Kinley Foster by Lisa Wells

There was a lot of cute and cheeky with a side of sass going on in The Seduction of Kinley Foster as the heroine--who is an aspiring author--arrives at the romance writers convention and finds out the guy she used to crush on as a teen and that broke her heart is attending too and is an agent...and he's managed to read her manuscript! Has some things to say about it too that'll get a girl all riled up. I was having a pretty good time with it. I mean, hello! enemies to lovers, the forbidden fruit of a best friend's little sister, and a book convention full of readerly authorly peoples. I mean. So much love! But as things went along I struggled more and more with pretty much everything.

Bits & Nibbles-- {The Duke of Olympia Meets His Match by Juliana Gray} & {Brave Enough by M. Leighton}

The Duke of Olympia Meets His Match (Untitled 0.5) by Juliana Gray

The Duke of Olympia Meets His Match was a cute little transatlantic jaunt as the Duke, well, meets his match in the intriguing widow Mrs. Penelope Schuyler.

The quick of it is that the elderly duke--yall he's 74!--is tasked with hunting down an anarchist hiding in the midst of a ship full of American heiresses voyaging to England. Oo excitement!
