The Cowboy's Runaway Bride (The McCall Brothers #3) by Laurie LeClair

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

The Cowboy's Runaway Bride was a cute read.

The Gist: A smarmy groom and a bride deciding oh hell no and making a run for it. A sexy cowboy unwittingly helping her escape. A little fib of having amnesia and hiding out with him and his family on their ranch while she figured things out. And maybe finding herself a stand up man in the process. Mmhm.

  • The Acadia is still in need of a name. But she's back from the repair shop. She was getting some paint fixed up (paid for by Carvana). She's looking good
  • We survived the hurricane! My state is a mess but thankfully my area lucked out. Rain and our lake rose but okay!

3 stars-- Bluegrass Undercover (Bluegrass Brothers #1) by Kathleen Brooks

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

Bluegrass Undercover was pretty good. I snagged it because hello *pets the pretty cover* and supposedly it was book one (it's not, start here) so...why not.
The gist: A new drug's targeting high school athletes and Annie's been sent in undercover as a school guidance counselor to try and figure out who is behind the new drug.  And she kinda finds herself landing the much sought after coach, too.

2 stars-- The Wedding Band (Save the Date #3) by Cara Connelly

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

The Wedding Band and I did not get along.
The Gist: Dakota's brother is getting married and it's his mission to keep all reporters out of the celebrity wedding. He's not fond of reporters. At. All. Christine, though, plans to sneak into the wedding with her dad's band in order to get the gossip and spread it all over the gossip rags. That's the plan.

So There Might Be A Hurricane.

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

So yall not on my social media. I'm...dealing with a hurricane and this guy showed up last night on our coast. Noooooo! lol I'm inland but they're thinking it'll actually be really bad here with flooding and other than initial impact could be more deadly. Ergs! We're expecting up to 80mph winds starting Friday afternoon and up to 20 inches of rain in less than 2 days.  [ETA little update, with the push South we're in an iffy area. On the wrong side of the hurricane now but not as close a hit so it still could be pretty bad they just don't quite know] They're calling for catastrophic flooding for nearly the entire state from coast to mountains. Yikes!

3.5 stars-- The Dom Who Loved Me (Masters and Mercinaries #1) by Lexi Blake

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

The Dom Who Loved Me was an entertaining little read that combines so many of my favorites... (light) BDSM, suspense and nice ----though not always easy-- romance as Grace and Sean's worlds collide in a steamy and dangerous way during the hunt for a terrorist.
The Gist: Sean thinks Grace works for a company that's really a front for illegal activity and connected to terrorist activities. But he needs to get close to find proof so he goes a bit under cover and starts things up with Grace--an older woman-- thinking she might be the key to the investigation and he can seduce the truth out of her. But things, as they usually do, get oh so complicated when their attraction can't be denied and it turns out they both have an interest in BDSM. Ahhh yay!

4 stars-- When It's Right (Montana Men, #2) by Jennifer Ryan

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

When It's Right didn't hold any punches. The first half of the book did a number on me and held me in it's grip. It was awesome.
The Gist: Gillian has escaped a life of abuse and has been sent to her grandfather's ranch until she recovers. Thing is...she's never met him. Being around strange men...make her nervous. Her grandfather's right hand man...definitely makes her nervous but not in an entirely bad way.

Would You Rather [book tag]

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 was going through my drafts and found all of these book tags I'd been, well, tagged in. Figured I'd start doing a few of those.
