3.5 stars-- Cocked & Loaded by Desiree Holt

*I read this one ages ago and it's been sitting in my drafts folder for like 2, 3 years. lol Figured it was time to post it. 

Erotica with a side of danger and suspense. Woohoo! Two of my favorite things to get my heart racing. <winks> Cocked & Loaded was my first from Holt and it was a pretty good time full of sexy suspense and a second chance romance. I do love those.

3.5 stars-- Goofy Newfies by Ann Omasta

Look at that cover! Adorable! Goofy Newfies was fun, too, as Lily-- our newly widowed and crotchety heroine-- meets her match in a wiggly little newfie escape artist and his hunky foster daddy who is trying to find homes for the herd of darling little puppies.

4 stars-- To Love a Texas Ranger (Men of Legend #1) by Linda Broday

Soo. Yall know I don't read blurbs. And for a while I kept thinking oh please be a menage!
"Weston, tell me this: Why were you on the train?"

"Wanted to make sure you got home. Knew you were still struggling, that you couldn't do your job. In the months of you chasing me and having to use all my wits to stay free... I don't know... I guess a bond of some sort or another formed. The chase became the game."

It certainly hadn't been a game to Sam. But Luke was right about growing close. Something deeper ran between them. "You noticed it too? The bond, I mean?"

"Yep." Luke licked his dry lips.  
I mean, seriously!! Tell me. Would you be thinking...mmhm. We're gonna have some historical naughtiness right here. lol But, yeah, no. Totally innocent on that front. Heh. Anywho...

Memes! New Reads--COWBOYS!!-- and WOW

I wanted to meme. And only had one weekly post to do it. So there's a whole lotta memeage happening in this post. You might have to scroll down a bit to get the one you're looking for. 😸

Yall. It's been a week. Between getting ready for my trip, my eyes going troublesome, the freezer getting delivered and getting my hair cut...I'm tired. lol And way behind on my reading. *flails* yall *flails* I'll probably be slow on blog visits and such-- my eyes just can't take the screen time-- but hang in with me, please! Once I get back from my trip and get my eye appointment behind me I'll give back in the swing of things. :)

In My Cart-- Degusta Box #2 -- Food Noms!

So a while back Mary over at Dark Thoughts shared about Degusta boxes. I was like yes, yes, I need to check this out! She is SO good at convincing me I need to try things new things. lol

Basically once a month you're sent a box of random goodies to try. From candy to sauces to cookies and pasta. It's really rather fun seeing what they'll include. Thought I'd share some of the things here!

Bite Sized Reviews-- Roped by EM Gayle & Ivan by Roxie Rivera

A couple really quick reviews for today! Both of these were freebies and ones I read a couple years back but just haven't published the reviews. I suck. I know. lol They were both fun tastes of the series they kick off and the authors-- both of which were new to me at the time. A little BDSM with EM Gayle's Roped and some Russian alpha male with Ivan by Roxy Rivera :D

4 stars-- Say Yes to the Marquess (Castles Ever After #2) by Tessa Dare

I read my first Tessa Dare!! Yall! I'd been SO nervous! Everyone loves her and I was all panicky that I'd be the odd girl out. lol I needn't have worried. Say Yes to the Marquess was delightful!

The Gist? Clio's fiance has strung her along for 8 long years while he travels the world. She's damn tired of waiting and ready to take matters into her own hands. Namely...breaking their engagement. She just needs is his brother--who's managing things-- to sign some papers. Blast the man. He thinks she should plan the wedding instead and jumps in to help do just that.

InstaWednesday-- All the things! And why I've been missing...

Because I love Instagram and sharing what we've been up to the last couple weeks...

Okay! An update first. This has been a long week. Busy with regular stuff but I'm also getting ready for my first vacation in over a year and with the herd that takes a LOT of time. The Support the Troops Auction is fast approaching. And, I've been having an eye issue. Gah! More on that in the pics! But it's all basically meant a lot less of online time this week and falling way behind on visits. I miss everyone and will try to get around soon :)

New Releases & Book Sales!!

Books & Cool Stuff!! The sales are awesome this week. Of the new books I read The Flirtation. I enjoyed it but check my review of it first. It was up yesterday. 

Let me know if you grab anything!

3.5 stars-- The Flirtation (Submissive #10) by Tara Sue Me #QuoteTastic

Oh yeah. I love me some Tara Sue Me. She writes such yummy erotic romance and bdsm.

So. The Flirtation. Totally flirty and sexy. I really liked the hero in this one. And that it touched on some bdsm issues like trust and when it's broken.

Anywho. Two quotes today...

Memes! New Reads, Bookish Challenges & Sexy Athletes!

I wanted to meme. And only had one weekly post to do it. So there's a whole lotta memeage happening in this post. You might have to scroll down a bit to get the one you're looking for. 😸

A Little Update: 

It's still hot. It's still humid. It's still making me feel stabby! Other than that I'm working on the Support the Troops auction this week-- if you'd like to donate a book click HERE

And I'm working on cleaning out our dining room so I can buy a freezer. The dining room is NEVER used so I figure I'll make it do some work for a change.

Tasty Delights-- Israeli Salad

Yall know I've been doing the HelloFresh meals. Now I'm trying out Green Chef. Jessica Lemmon turned me on to them because of their vegetarian/vegan options and I figured...why not?!

And it was pretty good. A similar set up to the HelloFresh but good.

The first box I tried was the Israeli Salad. Now, this is NOT something I would typically be pulled towards. I'm just not a huge fan of this type of cuisine but it turned out pretty tasty. It was fairly easy as well. I'm glad I gave it a go though I don't know that I'd make it again but that's just personal preference.

Money Matters-- Rebate Apps! Woots! #FreeMoney

Last month I talked about doing a #NoSpendJune and how that went. I've been continuing my financial overhaul during July. Doing little tweaks here and there and trying out new things to save some money.

This time I'm talking Rebate Apps. Holy cow, yall! How could I have not tried these sooner! All that wasted money. *hangs head*

2 stars-- Once Burned (Night Prince #1) by Jeaniene Frost

*flails of reader girl sadness* Pretty much everyone else loves this spin off series. But, yall. I was so disappointed.

I was all over the Night Huntress series and all about Vlad when he'd show up there so him having his own series? Oh. My. Gosh. I was so damn tickled and excited. But, Once Burned, left me wondering what the hell had happened to Vlad and if I'd read a different book than everyone else. Bummer.

4 stars-- Knight on the Texas Plains (Texas Heroes #1) by Linda Broday

Well I'll be adding more of Linda Broday's books to my wishlist. Knight on the Texas Plains... total book goodness.

The Gist: Since his wife's death Duel has given up on life. He's got nothing to live for until one night changes everything and his hands are suddenly full of a whole heap of female he needs to pull his shit together for--a tiny baby girl no one wants and an injured woman with secrets to hide. His only plan? Head back to his family ranch and start trying to heal not just himself but two women who are just as broken and wounded as he is and counting on him.

4 stars-- Ash and Quill (The Great Library #3) by Rachel Caine

Yall. This series. It's so damn unique and seriously addicting! Ash and Quill was a non-stop gritty adventure! I've loved dang near every second as Jess and friends began training with the Library-- who's mission is to protect books at ANY cost (including death)-- and slowly realize that it isn't really a force of good anymore and set about taking the Library down.

So what made Ash and Quill awesome?

QuoteTastic/Review-- Tougher in Texas (Texas Rodeo #3) by Kari Lynn Dell

Can I just quote the whole damn book? Ahh! I had SUCH a hard time choosing just a couple for todays. I'm seriously loving Kari Lynn Dell and her cowboys. They're funny and sexy and just so damn good. Anyway. This heroine and I were in total agreement on this one...
