Note: I accidentally deleted 6 months of the blog so this is a repost. All comments on the original posts were unfortunately lost. Sorry!

I've been having fun trying new authors and Sarah Title caught my eye. I'm glad, too. Kentucky Home hit the spot!
The Gist: Mallory needed to escape an abusive husband so her friend Lucas decided to take her home to his family in Kentucky. They'd pretend to be engaged and she could stay safe with his family and regroup. Problem is? Well, she kind of falls for his growly older brother Keith in the mean time. Oops!

Sooo the hero and heroine. They've got a bit of an antagonistic relationship going on. The town has just been hit by a severe storm and he's come by in the midst of it to board up her windows. This little bit made me laugh.

4 stars-- Hard Riding Cowboy (Gold Valley #2.5) by Maisey Yates

Note: I accidentally deleted 6 months of the blog so this is a repost. All comments on the original posts were unfortunately lost. Sorry!

A sexy-sweet quickie. Just what I needed. I had a good time with Hard Riding Cowboy. Including the meet cute where the heroine is checking out a guy's ass in line and thinking dayum! then he turns around and she realizes that omg I used to babysit him! And promptly has a mental freak out because eeeeewwwwww lol
The Gist: Lauren's moving back home with her two girls after being widowed and her soon to be new house needs a lot of work. And the aforementioned owner of the hot ass decides he's going to be the one to help her since this girl has been his every fantasy since he was 12 years old. And, well, sparks, emotions and clothing fly!

Note: I accidentally deleted 6 months of the blog so this is a repost. All comments on the original posts were unfortunately lost. Sorry!

Eh. A Bride or a Billionaire was okay. It was a quick read and entertaining enough though nothing all that special.
The Gist: Matteo finds himself suddenly in need of a wife. And the perfect 'fake wife' is right at his fingertips...a girl he's just rescued from an airport scuffle that left her injured. She's desperate for money so...why not? They'll spend a month married, both get what they want then go their separate ways...

Lori Foster is always a good time. Cooper's Charm was all kinds of adorable and a lot of fun, too.
