I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review/

Double Click is the second installment of the Click Trilogy and takes right up where Click leaves off. Written in the same format, as a series of emails shared between friends, I found Double Click much easier to follow along even though I continued to skip over each email heading which names the subject and addressee.

Like Click, Double Click is filled with the same witty correspondence and sometimes friendly, sometimes catty dialogue that Becker has a knack for writing. The friendships make this story. They are fun, light, but also touch on some heartfelt issues that bring a serious note to the storyline.

For me, I felt Click was mostly about Renee and her journey of finding love and I truly felt Double Click should have been Shelly’s story. I would have loved to have seen things mixed up a bit and the majority of the correspondence come from Shelly to the other’s. She’s by far been my favorite character and I think she had so much more to add this time than Renee did. As for Ashley, she grew on me a bit. I didn’t care much for her personality in the beginning, but we see her grow as a person and I really like that. Once again, I felt like Mark was on the sidelines. I really like him and always want him to play more of a role, but his interactions come across vague and standoffish. I have not yet read the blurb for Right Click, but I’m hoping we get more of Mark there. As for the newcomer to the group, I’m on the fence with Cassidy. I neither like nor dislike her and I’m curious to know what she might had to the next part of the story.

Overall, I didn’t get that same carefree feeling that I got from reading Click, but this story does not disappoint. Running along the lines of more chick-lit than romance, Double Click is an easy read that doesn’t take you through a gamut of emotions. Light and comical, it’s one that you’ll breeze right through. 3/5

Book Review: Happiness in Jersey by Jacinta Howard

JerseyThe only thing in Jersey Kincaid’s world that she has time for are keeping her grades up so that she doesn’t lose her scholarship to South Texas University, playing the bass in her band, The Prototype, and satisfying her coffee addiction. Oh, and the occasional random hook-up she indulges in to pass the time.

Love? Eh, not so much. Save that crap for a Katherine Heigl or Natalie Portman movie.

Jersey’s seen enough in life (courtesy of her Pops) to realize that undying romance is nothing more than a myth used to sell books and movie tickets. As she knows too well, the only thing inevitable in life is death— love is definitely not promised.

That’s why when Jersey meets Isaiah “Zay” Broussard with his soulful gray eyes, quick wit and easy charm, she’s determined to remain aloof. She doesn’t have time to get sidetracked by fleeting fantasies, even if she does feel an unexplainable connection to Zay she’s never experienced before.

But when his interest in her only seems to intensify, despite her attempts to brush him off, she gets to see a side of him and herself she didn’t expect…

A complimentary copy was received from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
Finding that one person in life who makes you a better person is never easy. Love takes time and patience. It also takes two people willing to make it work. But when your soul has been trampled on and beaten down to the point that you don’t feel as if you deserve the happiness they can give you, it makes for a tough and rocky relationship, even if you know that relationship can be everything you want it to be. Such is the story of Jersey and Zay.

Emotionally broken and carrying around a ton of baggage, Jersey is a tough character to like in the beginning. Her past is truly heartbreaking and you so badly want to understand and sympathize with her, but at the same time, smack her upside the head for some of her actions. Living with an emotionally and verbally abusive father after losing her mother, hardened her in ways no one should have to be. Mentally she tries to come across tough, but we all know it’s those types who are usually hurting the worst and it’s only a matter of time until they fall apart.

Zay is perfect in every aspect. I mean, I totally fell in love with him. He’s beautiful, talented, flawed, tough and just about the sweetest damn man on earth. Dealing with his own issues, he’s been where Jersey’s at, so he understand where she’s coming from and through that understanding, he commits himself to helping her work through her past. But, please don’t take his sweetness and confuse it with being a mushy pushover, because he’s anything but. Jealous and opinionated, he has alpha tendencies without being severely dominating. He’s patient, kind, but also more than willing to call Jersey out on her actions and feelings. I honestly think he’s the most perfect hero that I have ever come across. There is just something about him you can’t help but love.

“That wall you have up? I’m patient and curious enough to find out what behind it.”

Full of emotions that literally drive this story home, Happiness in Jersey is an outstanding read, which I’d highly recommend. I teetered on the edge of 4 or 5 stars. Four only because it took me a while to get into it. The beginning is a bit slow and as I mentioned, Jersey isn’t one that you immediately fall in love with. Five because when it takes off, it drags you in and you won’t want to put it down. It’s one you’ll be thinking about when your away from the story and continue to care for and want to know about the characters even after it comes to an end. For me that is always deserving of a five star read.

Clear and beautiful writing with believable and attention grabbing dialogue, Ms. Howard delivers a heart-wrenching tale of finding that one person in life who makes you whole.

Book Review: The Mine by John A. Heldt

themineIn May 2000, Joel Smith is a cocky, adventurous young man who sees the world as his playground. But when the college senior, days from graduation, enters an abandoned Montana mine, he discovers the price of reckless curiosity. He emerges in May 1941 with a cell phone he can’t use, money he can’t spend, and little but his wits to guide his way. Stuck in the age of swing dancing and a peacetime draft, Joel begins a new life as the nation drifts toward war. With the help of his 21-year-old trailblazing grandmother and her friends, he finds his place in a world he knew only from movies and books. But when an opportunity comes to return to the present, Joel must decide whether to leave his new love in the past or choose a course that will alter their lives forever. THE MINE follows a humbled man through a critical time in history as he adjusts to new surroundings and wrestles with the knowledge of things to come.

Just days away from their college graduation in the year 2000, Joel Smith and his friend, Adam, are on a trip through Yellowstone when they happen upon an abandoned mine. Curious, Joel enters the mine alone, but when he comes out Adam is gone. In fact, everything he once knew is gone.

Zapped back into the year 1941, the ever arrogant Joel is quickly thrown into a humble life of living on the streets. With nothing more than the clothes on his back and a few things he’s unable to use in the past, his keen wit helps him travel from Montana to his hometown of Seattle where he befriends a young man and embarks on an adventure that will change the course of his life.

I must admit, this was my first time travel read. Time travel isn’t something that has ever piqued my interested before, but being I’m a bit obsessed with the World War II time period and love movies like Pearl Harbor and Saving Private Ryan, I thought The Mine might be something I would enjoy. It definitely did not disappoint. Although a little slow in the beginning, it does not take long to completely pull you in. The whole idea of going back in time and meeting your grandmother during her college years completely intrigued me. Not to mention, all of it transpiring during one of the worlds most memorable and critical time periods.

This story is told from several different POV’s, which usually I find overwhelming, but I had no trouble following along with each characters thoughts as their stories unfolded. Mr. Heldt does a fantastic job of connecting us to each of them and I loved the interactions between the college friends who took Joel in and adopted him as one of their own.

I did have apprehensions going into the story. The cover and the blurb led me to believe this was more of a time travel story with a romance on the side, but that is not the case at at all. The heart of this storyline is a true, old fashioned romance that tugs at all your heartstrings and makes you want to become a part of it. I wanted to be there. I wanted to dive into the book and meet Joel and his friends. Yes, I cried in parts and I couldn’t seem to read fast enough because I wanted so badly to know how the story ended and then when it did, I wanted more. For me, that is what a five star read is all about. One that leaves you a little heartbroken when it’s finished simply because it was so beautiful.

Absolutely compelling in every way. If you like slow moving, modest romances or if time travel is your thing, this is one you should definitely read.

Weddings…the perfect place to forget who you are and be who you want to be. At least that’s how Veronica Bass sees it. She has a job that not everyone deems exciting,  a life that’s comfortable enough and an overbearing mother that wants her to find Mr. Right and settle down—which Veronica intends to do. First, Veronica will become Vero. One last hurrah before she settles down to be who she’s expected to be. One night of passion. One evening where she can forget who she is and be Vero—sultry sex bomb.

Diego is tired of the same old. Same old reaction from the people he meets. Same old relationships with women. Same old crazy lifestyle. It’s time to settle down and find the one. And the one he finds is Vero. One night with Vero just isn’t enough, Diego needs more, so when they bump into each other again, Diego is determined not to let her go. Problem is, Vero isn’t the super interesting woman she claims to be, she’s Veronica—accountant, ordinary, plain.

Thinking Diego is only after a quick fling, Veronica spins lie after lie to appear more interesting. As Diego’s intentions become clearer, Veronica has one heck of a mess to clear up.

The opening chapter of this book really sucked me in. Veronica was very easy to connect with. She’s a bit of a klutz and not quite sure what she’s doing. Diego made me drool, he’s smokin’ hot! The initial meet of these two I really enjoyed, and each time Vero came up with another lie I squirmed!

Vero, for all her little lies, is still a loveable character. She’s just feeling trapped by her mother’s expectations. Diego is a bit cheesy—I prefer my male characters to be a little more alpha, however he’s so darn sweet and oh so sexy.

The chemistry between the pair is so far beyond electric that if you touch it, you’ll burst into a ball of fire. However, as I continued to read I began to feel like I was being smothered. The constant touching, eyeballing, inward squirming and suggestive dialogue became a little much and slightly repetitive. That said, the story was still fabulous and very enjoyable. A delightful little read with a satisfying end. 4/5

Book one in The Pericolo Series:
ffreloadedcoverThey call me the Femme Fatale.
But only because they don’t know me.
My job – seduce men only to deliver their death sentence.

I work for my father’s business. I’m his secret weapon. I’m the one that gets away with murder.

For years, I’ve given in to my father’s demands, lived the life of a mob princess, fell into this merciless realm where he presents me with a man and one goal – to kill.

When it’s to keep the Abbiati name from ruins, I’ll run with the wolves and protect it fiercely.

However, when he brings a new name to the table, I know my newest mission could well be the one that breaks me – don’t feel, don’t deviate, kill Zane Maverick.

It should be simple, but how am I supposed to choose between the man who raised me to be this seemingly heartless and strong female and the man I could only ever love to death?

Book 2 of the Pericolo Series:

actualffcoverI used to be fearful. I used to be admired. I used to be the Femme Fatale.

Until I fell.

I fell from my status, from the pedestal I had been placed, and I fell in love.

And that’s where it all went wrong.

I once thrived on one motto – Don’t feel, don’t deviate, kill.

Now, I thrive on betrayal, a reminder never to trust my heart, and the need to be Femme Fatale Reloaded.

It’s time I got myself back to the place I most belong – a cherished, yearned for secret weapon.

However, when a ghost from my past walks into my life again, pledging to be an Abbiati, my life turns upside down all over again.

My biggest problem was never the kill, but the thrill of the chase. Apparently, love is the most dangerous game I can ever play, and my life is about to spiral out of control.

Book Review: More Than Ever by Gretchen Tubbs

mte“I can’t. I’m sorry, and I appreciate everything you did for me today, but I just can’t.” I feel slightly sick as the words are coming out of my mouth. I don’t think I can open myself up to this. I want to, but I won’t do this to either of us. I can feel the chemistry. If we started something and it would end, it would be disastrous.
“Because of him?”
“No.” I get up from the table and start picking up my food. I don’t want to have this conversation. I walk to the trashcan and throw my leftovers away. When I reach the restaurant’s interior doors that lead back inside, I feel Bennett’s body pushed up against mine. It feels both safe and scary, all at the same time.
He leans over and whispers, “Why?”
In a voice that barely comes out, I reply, “Because of me.”

Lucy Brennan is fighting for her life.
Bennett Strickland feels alive for the first time.
Lives, friendships, family, and love are put to the test.

Everyone is fighting with everything they’ve got.
Will it be enough?

This is the first book in a series, but is a stand-alone novel.

ESRR received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Lucy Brennan is like any ordinary girl…except she suffers from a genetic kidney disease and is going through life on dialysis three times a week and no kidneys.

Lucy is surrounded by a supportive family and her best friend Miller, whom she lives with, as well as her sister, Maggie. Miller is deeply in love with Lucy, but sadly, she doesn’t reciprocate.

On a scheduled trip to the hospital for dialysis, Lucy meets smoking hot nurse practitioner Bennett Strickland.
Lucy takes Bennet’s breath away the moment he lays eyes on her, despite her emptying the contents of her stomach onto him. Bennet wants nothing more to than to win Lucys’ heart, but Lucy is afraid of starting something with Bennet that she may be unable to finish.

More Than Ever is a beautiful story of love and loss. I really sympathized with Lucy’s situation and I loved how Bennett didn’t care about that at all. I did struggle with parts of the book as I really loved Miller and wanted so much for him to be happy. I felt at times that Lucy didn’t treat him fairly.

There are some truly heartbreaking moments in this book as well as times where I groaned and uttered ‘oh-no’. The emotion swirling within the pages was excellent and should be commended.

I think the differing points of view could have been expressed better. There were times, just after Bennett’s point of view, that we go back to Lucy’s point of view without clear direction. Also, I feel that we could have had more of Bennett’s point of view rather than snippets. There are also some errors that a good editor could weed out.
Overall I really liked More Than Ever. It is well told, and really pulled at my heartstrings. 4/5

Book Review: Tall Tatted and Tempting by Tammy Falkner

tttLogan wants to know my name, but I can’t tell him. I can’t tell him anything. There are too many people looking for me. He’s pretty persuasive, though, and he convinces me to go home with him so he can keep me safe from this harsh city where I find myself. It’s not my home. It’s his. He belongs. I don’t.

Logan lives with four brothers in the inner city. Yet I’ve never felt more safe than I do when I’m with him. I want him. But he won’t let me have a darn thing, aside from his friendship, unless I’m willing to tell him my secrets. But they’re mine, and I can’t share them. Not unless I want them to come and get me.

Logan

She catches my eye because she’s so beautiful she takes my breath. But that’s not all that I love about her. I love the way she smells. The way she smiles. The way she plays the guitar is unlike anything I have ever seen. She sleeps in my bed every night, and drives me crazy with her touch. But I can’t take what she offers because I need all of her. I need for her to tell me her secrets. I need for her to trust me.
From the back of the book:

She’s locked up tight. But he might be the key.

Logan Reed is tall, tatted and tempting.
Kit’s a woman with a mean right hook and a secret.

Kit wants a tattoo, but Logan sees more than she intends to share in the drawing of the tat she wants. He sees her in ways no one ever has.

Logan’s not disabled; but he hasn’t spoken in eight years. He hasn’t needed to.
Until he meets Kit.

Logan doesn’t know everything about Kit. Kit doesn’t know anything about herself,
until she has to sacrifice all she ever wanted to save what’s most important to him.

ESRR received this book in exchange for an honest review.

Kit (Emily Madison) is living on the streets. Homeless and hungry, she feels trapped and alone, until she meets Logan.

Logan has had his fair share of women. With his impressive build, inked body and beautiful eyes he can have any woman he desires. He never sticks with one woman for longer than one night, and even then, he won’t sleep in bed with them all night, preferring them to be gone by morning….until Kit walks into his life. With a mean right hook, Kit catches Logan’s attention immediately and before he knows it, he’s hooked. But Kit has a secret and because of that, she refuses to give away her real identity or stay in one place for too long.

As Logan and Kit fall hard for each other, Kit finds herself in a situation she never planned. When Logan’s brother is rushed to hospital, Kit sacrifices everything she wants from life to make sure Logan gets everything he needs.

I absolutely adored Logan—he is now my new book boyfriend. Sweet, loyal and hot as hell, the man has it all. His adoration for Kit took my breath away and the way he treats her – me, pick me! I want him. Logan is aware that Kit is running from something or someone and though he wants all of her, he refuses to give himself up to her until she trusts him enough to tell him about her past.

“This girl will shred me. I already know she will. And I’m jumping in with everything I am anyway.”

Kit is struggling to find her way in life. A bright young woman, she feels she’s stupid because she struggles to read. She is NOT stupid, she’s smart and kind, though a little wary of people. She knows she’s falling for Logan and it scares her. She doesn’t want to talk about who she really is and she really doesn’t want to hurt Logan. Kit is a very likeable character and I really rooted for her to get the things that she really wants in life, especially Logan!

All of the characters are well developed and the author did a wonderful job of ensuring that each character stands out as an individual. This book is so well written. It has everything I love in a book – a sexy inked love interest, a strong and sassy main female character and SMOLDERING chemistry between the two. I absolutely ADORED it. 5/5

Meredith has firm plans for her future—Invest in her sister’s bridal gown business so they can work equally toward making their small company a success. But to do that, Meredith first needs to ask her father to front her the money she so desperately need. This is where Meredith hits a snag. Two years earlier on a trip to Vegas, she met and married Jason, a sexy man who’d lost his way. They parted company after Vegas without filing the paperwork therefore not legitimizing their marriage. However – it seems as though some kind soul did that for them as Meredith receives news from her father’s lawyer that she is indeed married. This spells trouble for Meredith as her father will never trust Meredith with his money after such reckless behavior.

After hunting down Jason who is now a major player in the fashion world, Meredith feels certain she can get a quiet divorce and her family will be none the wiser, but Jason has other plans.

When Meredith turns up as Jason’s office, she jams a spanner in the works, losing Jason a key supplier. Jason has a plan to make sure that his business can still grow, but it involves staying married just a little longer.

I really enjoyed this book. The main characters were both likeable and charming. Meredith comes across as a little full on at times, but ultimately she is sweet and down to earth. Jason’s ideas about marriage at first did have me baffled, but as the book went on his opinions shift as his feelings for Meredith grow.

I did find, at times, that there was a little too much narrative between conversations, too much inner thought meaning by the time the conversation continued, I found myself flicking back to find out what the last line of dialogue was.

I really enjoyed Meredith’s undercover work at Jason’s sisters fashion house and I truly sympathized with her when she started her first day wearing the incorrect label.

All in all this is a really well written tale of two lovers finding their way back to each other and it snagged my attention right from the first chapter. There are sweet moments, hot moments, and times where I laughed out loud. A truly great book.

In an attempt to break away from my privileged, suffocating life, I was in pursuit of finding my own path to happiness. After my literary agent gave me a risky writing assignment, I set out to write a best-seller that took me completely out of my comfort zone and into the arms of another man. He was only supposed to be a research toy, falling in love wasn’t a part of the plan.

As I become tangled into a huge web of lies, I quickly find out that I have a life changing decision to make. Do I choose to continue living a life of comfort, stability, and misery or do I take a chance on the unknown to preserve my happiness?

But, from the moment she stumbles into Zane, she knows her life will never be the same and to fulfill the assignment, a choice must be made.

Told solely from Arianna’s POV, this story held an interesting premise. Trapped in an unhappy relationship, dictated by her parents, Arianna knows she deserves more in life, but she’s reluctant to make changes for fear of losing the financial security her family provides. When asked to write an erotica novel by her agent, she’s apprehensive because her life with boyfriend, Julius, is anything but erotic. Then she stumbles into Zane and with his handsome looks and muscled body, he quickly becomes her muse. It’s not until she runs into him again and at the urging of her BFF, Gia, that she decides to use a fake name and use Zane as a sexual research partner.

Even though Julius is a total scumbag, I had a hard time connecting with or liking Arianna. I’m not really sure what it was about her that just didn’t click with me. There was too many lies on top of lies and opportunities that she could have come clean about who she was with Zane and didn’t. And then at times she’d have a back bone only to slither back into thinking how she and Julius might work out. Zane on the other hand was a total sweetheart. Any woman would be lucky to have him as her man. And I absolutely loved Gia!

A well written, short and steamy read. 3/5
