Wild on the Red Carpet (The Hollywood Showmance Chronicles #3) by Olivia Jaymes and Contest

Wild on the Red Carpet (The Hollywood Showmance Chronicles #3) by Olivia Jaymes

Blurb:

Meet the men of the Thunder movie franchise... Movie Stars. Sex Symbols. Bad Boys. What's a good girl gonna do?

Tyler Gaylord is a world famous movie star and one of Hollywood's most notorious playboys. He enjoys the company of beautiful, willing women as long as they don't misunderstand the rules. There will be expensive gifts, champagne-soaked parties, and passion filled nights. But there will be no love or talk of forever. No offense to the lovely ladies, but he's simply not a commitment type of guy.

Wilhemina "Billie" Oliver is a struggling actress who lives in Tyler's guest cottage. She's also his best friend and the only person he trusts to tell him the truth. She'd do anything for him and he'd do anything for her. No questions asked. The one thing she won't let him do, however, is help her career. She'll make it on her own or she won't make it at all.

To win the role of his dreams Tyler needs to appear happily married. The director doesn't believe that a serial womanizer can play a character deeply and passionately in love. So of course Tyler turns to his best friend Billie to help him out. They already spend all their time together so nothing will change but her last name.

It's the perfect solution and it's not like he asked her to help him bury a body or anything. So why is she being so difficult?

My review:
Wild on the Red Carpet is a feel good sweet friends to lovers romance. Man boy movie star Tyler Gaylord wants to move on in his career. He knows the role he wants but the director want someone more stable who knows what love is. That isn’t Tyler. Billie is Tylers best friend and one of the few people he trusts implicitly. So he begs , bribes and pleads with her to become his fiancé. I love that Billie isn’t a pushover and watching Tyler grovel is fun. The best thing about this story for me was the emphasis put on trust. Without trust love is incomplete. This story left me smiling and feeling good.

Finding More (Tiger Nip 3) by Brandy Walker and Contest





Blurb:
Devon Anderson’s life changed forever when his wife died; leaving him to care for their three small children, run his thriving Family Practice, and be the Golden Boy of their small Wyoming town, Garden. He thought he’d found the perfect solution to his loneliness and desire to have a companion when he asked Mary Jane Poppy to be his wife, but fate had something else in mind.
Fate came in the form of lithe, hybrid Carolline Greene; make that Dr. Carolline Greene, expert in Hybrid Development and Studies, and the one who showed Mary Jane she could go after the man she really wanted. A year down the road and Devon was still struggling to stay afloat with all of his responsibilities and battling the need for a companion even more.
Carolline Greene loved the new life she was building in Garden. She had a home she could call her own. A few very dear friends she would do anything for. Most importantly, though, she had a position at the hospital that allowed her the time and resources to help people like herself. Give them the support, knowledge, and understanding she had never had. She saw a bright, albeit lonely future, but she could deal with that. It wasn’t until a leisurely morning run, which ended with her thwarting the attempted kidnapping of three kids, did her life take a sudden and life-changing turn.
Now that Fate had pushed them together, will Devon and Carolline look beyond first impressions and rumors to see what they could be? Mates meant to be together…forever.


My review:
Finding More was well worth the wait. This book has Doctors, a single dad and shifters of all kinds. There is danger, excitement and lots of love. This book made me laugh and sigh and yell out loud. Though it is part of a series it can be read stand alone. For a fun escape and a love story that will suck you in this book will have you Finding More each time you read it. Highly recommended.

Soul Song (The Soul Mate Tree Book 10) by Mikea Howard and Contest





Blurb:
Dottie thought she had it all: a successful singing career, a handsome fiancé, and a starlet’s wardrobe. Sudden betrayal brought it all crashing down around her. Those she trusted most played her as nothing more than a pawn. One misstep while fleeing the scene trapped her in another world alone, save a mysterious visitor.
Guatimozin, an eagle shifter, has spent ages assisting people through the realm between life and death, leading them to join loved ones on either side. No one had ever made him want anything for himself until he discovered this city girl.
Forces plot against them and time is short. Soon, their chance for a happily ever after might come too late.

My review:
This story takes place in the exciting world the author has created for their Diesel War series. In this adventure songbird Dottie De Veaux is fighting for her life when she encounters the Soul Mate Tree and an eagle shifter Guatimozin aka Tim.  Love finds Dottie and Tim easily enough but life has a few adventures in store for them. You’ll want to buckle in for this ride. I love these stories and this world is so much fun. If you enjoy this story you will want to check out the Diesel War series it’s the bees knees.

A Plague of Giants (Seven Kennings #1) by Kevin Hearne and Contest





Blurb:

From the author of The Iron Druid Chronicles, a thrilling novel that kicks off a fantasy series with an entirely new mythology—complete with shape-shifting bards, fire-wielding giants, and children who can speak to astonishing beasts

MOTHER AND WARRIOR
Tallynd is a soldier who has already survived her toughest battle: losing her husband. But now she finds herself on the front lines of an invasion of giants, intent on wiping out the entire kingdom, including Tallynd’s two sons—all that she has left. The stakes have never been higher. If Tallynd fails, her boys may never become men.

SCHOLAR AND SPY
Dervan is an historian who longs for a simple, quiet life. But he’s drawn into intrigue when he’s hired to record the tales of a mysterious bard who may be a spy or even an assassin for a rival kingdom. As the bard shares his fantastical stories, Dervan makes a shocking discovery: He may have a connection to the tales, one that will bring his own secrets to light.  

REBEL AND HERO
Abhi’s family have always been hunters, but Abhi wants to choose a different life for himself. Embarking on a journey of self-discovery, Abhi soon learns that his destiny is far greater than he imagined: a powerful new magic thrust upon him may hold the key to defeating the giants once and for all—if it doesn’t destroy him first.

Set in a magical world of terror and wonder, this novel is a deeply felt epic of courage and war, in which the fates of these characters intertwine—and where ordinary people become heroes, and their lives become legend.

My review:

In this exciting new series Keven Hearne has created a fantastic world where anything can happen and usually does. Travel with a talented Bard with a fun sense of the absurd and a quiet historian who is to spy to determine if the Bard is a spy. And while this tale may echo some of the headlines in todays news we can guarantee you will enjoy this story more.  This is epic fantasy at its finest.

Jagged Edge (The Arsenal Book 1) by Cara Carnes and Contest



Blurb:
Mary “The Edge” Reynolds is the most sought-after back office operative around-the creative genius pulling the ultimate bad-asses out of impossible situations. She’s never failed on a mission, and she’s not about to fail on the most important mission ever-keeping her newly designed security system safe. Relying on others isn’t in her nature, but the newly formed Arsenal is her only hope for escape when she’s kidnapped.

She is the Edge.

The Edge never breaks.

Never quits.

Dylan Mason and his brothers have put everything on the line to form The Arsenal. When the paramilitary arena is rocked by Edge’s capture, he’ll do whatever it takes to get the fearless operative back, but his wary heart isn’t ready to handle the vulnerable woman buried beneath the hardened shell. Getting her back was simple. Keeping her and her “security system” HERA out of enemy hands is another story.

Together they must hunt down the faction behind her capture and subsequent torture to keep HERA from becoming an unstoppable terroristic threat. What they uncover could destroy them both.


My review:
This book goes into some dark places and may have triggers for some readers. That said, Jagged Edge is a powerful story of survival and love and is the first in what looks to be a terrific new series.  Mary “The Edge” Reynolds is my newest hero. She is smart and strong. She isn’t perfect but she seems to be perfect for Dylan Mason. Mary is like a lot of us who live for our work and forget about the woman we are and her needs. Everything is shunted aside for the job.
I was sucked into this book and didn’t leave until long after the last page.

Death, Taxes, and Pecan Pie (Tara Holloway #11.5) by Diane Kelly



Blurb:

People are going a little nutty in this new case for IRS Special Agent Tara Holloway!
Tara is looking for a fun, relaxing time with her family at Pecan Palooza: a full-day festival dedicated to celebrating the nut that put the tiny town of Pecan Crossing on the map. Between a parade, carnival games, rides, the Pecan Princess pageant, and several pecan bake-offs, Tara wants quality time with her fiancé Nick before their upcoming nuptials.
But when a mysterious woman in a hat shows some suspicious behavior and the bake-off winners don’t look that surprised when they win…could the competitions be rigged? Despite the lack of evidence, Tara is determined to dethrone the cheaters and make sure the actual winners can have their pie and eat it too.
A lead-in to the series finale, Death, Taxes, and Pecan Pie is a sweet treat!

My review:

Tara can’t restrain her curiosity even when at the Pecan Palooza. When she sees hinky hijinks going on she just has to investigate. Death, Taxes, and Pecan Pie is a fun short standalone that will have you giggling from the first page to the last.

A.L.F.A. Mates (A.L.F.A. #1-2) by Milly Taiden




Blurb:

The Alpha League Federal Agency is sworn to protect humanity from paranormal threats and now the first two novels in New York Times bestselling author Milly Taiden's sexy A.L.F.A. series are available for the first time in one print volume!

ELEMENTAL MATING
Brilliant scientist Melinda Caster has discovered a new strain of the Zika virus that stimulates synaptic growth in embryos, causing neuron development beyond normal human levels. When her lab is broken into, Melinda realizes that someone has been keeping tabs on her research and wants it for themselves. A.L.F.A. sends in jaguar-shifter Agent Parish Hamel to help Melinda discover who is after the virus and why. But the attraction between Parish and Melinda may be the real discovery.

MATING NEEDS
Amerella Capone is the great-grandniece of the infamous Al Capone, and she won't let anyone in the Las Vegas Mafia forget it. When Amerella unintentionally stumbles upon bad family business that she wants no part of, she becomes a star witness for a high-profile government case. A.L.F.A. is called in to keep Amerella safe, but cougar-shifter Agent François Dubois has history with his charge, and the secrets between them might do more damage than any gun pointed at his head.

My review:
Two fun books in one volume.
ELEMENTAL MATING
I love that this book takes place in Uganda. I absolutely adore the fact that our heroine, Melinda, is a gifted scientist. I liked the mix of science and paranormal. I enjoyed the story. I just wish I could have felt the attraction between jaguar-shifter Agent Parish Hamel and Melinda more. It felt a little forced to me which is not usually an issue in this authors work. 
MATING NEEDS
Whatever issues the author had in the first book were cleared up by the time she wrote this one. This is a fabulous read. Amerella Capone is feisty and sweet. Her son is adorable. All she needs is to let her mate cougar-shifter Agent François Dubois back into her heart. In this book it may very well take a village to get these two back together again.
