Sassy Ever After: The Sweetest Sass by Alyse Zaftig



Blurb:

My bakery is struck by lightning.
Firefighters show up to fight the blaze during the thunderstorm. Two of them wrap me up in a blanket, give me coffee, and take me home.
We agree to meet the next day.
And the next.
And the...you get the picture. Not surprising when I figure out I'm pregnant.
But they have a secret that they haven't told me. I'm a boring old human.
They're not.

My review:

Raven meets two wolf shifter firefighters on what is one of the worst days of her life. Who knew it was the start of the rest of her life. Orion and Quinton have known they would share a mate. They just never figured their mate would be human. I liked the story well enough but it really didn’t do anything for me. Maybe it was all the interruptions. If you want a quick sexy read give it a try.

The Girl Who Knew Too Much by Amanda Quick






Blurb:

Amanda Quick, the bestselling author of ’Til Death Do Us Part, transports readers to 1930s California, where glamour and seduction spawn a multitude of sins…
When Hollywood moguls and stars want privacy, they head to an idyllic small town on the coast, where the exclusive Burning Cove Hotel caters to their every need. It’s where reporter Irene Glasson finds herself staring down at a beautiful actress at the bottom of a pool…
The dead woman had a red-hot secret about up-and-coming leading man Nick Tremayne, a scoop that Irene couldn’t resist—especially since she’s just a rookie at a third-rate gossip rag. But now Irene’s investigation into the drowning threatens to tear down the wall of illusion that is so deftly built around the famous actor, and there are powerful men willing to do anything to protect their investment.
Seeking the truth, Irene finds herself drawn to a master of deception. Oliver Ward was once a world-famous magician—until he was mysteriously injured during his last performance. Now the owner of the Burning Cove Hotel, he can’t let scandal threaten his livelihood, even if it means trusting Irene, a woman who seems to have appeared in Los Angeles out of nowhere four months ago…
With Oliver’s help, Irene soon learns that the glamorous paradise of Burning Cove hides dark and dangerous secrets. And that the past—always just out of sight—could drag them both under…

My review:

In The Girl Who Knew Too Much by  we are transported to America in the 1930’s. There are several murders and several suspects each with different motives. The ending will blow you away! I loved the location and excitement of the era. The author whirled me away to a more glamorous past and I enjoyed every minute of it.

Noble Intentions by Andrew Grey



Blurb:
Robert Morton is in for the surprise of a lifetime. His mother, a bit of a rebel, raised him away from the rest of the family, and it's not until he's contacted by his lawyer about an inheritance that he learns who he truly is: the new Earl of Hantford. His legacy includes ownership of the historic Ashton Park Estate--which needs repairs Robert cannot afford. He'll simply do what the nobility has done for centuries when in need of money. He'll marry it.

Tech wizard Daniel Fabian is wealthy and successful. In fact, he has almost everything--except a title to make him worthy in the eyes of the old-money snobs he went to prep school with. His high school reunion is looming, and he's determined to attend it as a member of the aristocracy.

That's where Robert comes in.

Daniel has the money, Robert has the name, and both of them know they can help each other out. But their marriage of convenience has the potential to become a real love match--unless a threat to Daniel's business ruins everything.

My review:
m/m
Noble Intentions by Andrew Grey is a sweet arranged marriage / matchmaker romance. Barrister Robert Morton (now Earl of Hantford) and American tech wizard Daniel Fabian are more alike than different. They are both consumed by their work. Their love lives are practically nonexistent. But their reasons for getting together couldn’t be more different. Robert wants to protect the past and Daniel wants to overcome it. Regardless of how they came together watching them grow together was worth the read.

Sassy Ever After: Sass in the City (Kindle Worlds Novella) (Catamount Shifters Book 3) by Marianne Morea



Sassy Ever After: Sass in the City (Kindle Worlds Novella) (Catamount Shifters Book 3)
by Marianne Morea

Blurb:
“Do you still believe things are meant to be?” 
Her eyes found his. “Not so much anymore.” 
“I didn’t either, until now.” 

Being alone is not an option for a Witch like Lael. Not when her best friend is hell-bent on turning her love life into an episode of love connection gone wrong. But for a seer like Lael, finding someone to help turn up the heat is not an easy fix. Not until fate blindsides her head long into the last man she ever expected to see again. 

You’re not welcome. For Jet Ellis those words were something he’s had to live with for most of his life. Ever since his future went up in smoke the day he was forced from the magical life he was supposed to have. Why? For being a half-blood shifter. 

It’s been ten long years since they saw each other. Old passions ignite, rekindling a fire than never truly died. But revelations from the past bring a deadly challenge that will either unite them forever or destroy them for good. Can the two survive and finally find their happily ever after?
 

My review:
Shifters, magic and love. This second chance romance will make you believe in the power of love.
Jet is a half breed shifter who was kicked out of training his magical side by a bigoted power hungry witch. She used his love for Lael to get him to go quietly. Now 10 years later Jet and Lael meet up again and they need to find out if their love can triumph over evil.

Tracking You (Redwood Ridge #2) by Kelly Moran




Blurb:
Love isn't always loud. Sometimes it's silent.

Gabby Cosette has always been dubbed the good girl of quaint Redwood Ridge, Oregon, and being permanently put in the friend zone has left her dating life stagnant. With no prospects in sight, she clings to her friends and resolves to not let loneliness drag her under. So when the town Battleaxes set their matchmaking sights on her, she figures it can't hurt. Yet the guy they think is perfect for her just happens to be not only her boss at the veterinarian clinic, but her best friend. Sure, Flynn O'Grady is attractive and the nicest guy around, but going there with him would topple both of their carefully constructed worlds and there would be no going back. Even if he is starting to make her girly parts zing.

Having been born deaf, Flynn has already felt like an outsider most of his life. Aside from his brothers, Gabby is about the only person who's gone out of her way to treat him as more than a handicap. Which is exactly why he's banked his secret attraction for his sweet, beautiful vet tech. Except his meddling family is trying to play Cupid and ruin the best thing to ever happen to him. Without Gabby, his work as a veterinarian, never mind his personal life, wouldn't flow. Determined to ignore the antics, he's secure in the knowledge she's not interested in him romantically. But then a kiss changes everything . . . and he's wondering if taking the ultimate shot at love might be worth the risk.

My review:
Get lost in this fabulous small town romance. Gabby and Flynn have been friends since kindergarten. Gabby insisted on learning sign language so she could talk to her new friend. Gabby has a heart of gold. She is everybody’s buddy and nobody’s everything. She is coming up on her thirtieth birthday and wants someone bad enough to let the town Battleaxes (aka matchmakers and busybodies) set her up on a blind date. When that date turns out to be her best friend Flynn things start to get strange. This best friends to lovers tale will make your heart sing and renew your faith in love.

My review:
What a fun read!

Sassy Ever After: Sassy Vigilante (Kindle Worlds) (Siren Song #2) by Gracen Miller




Sassy Ever After: Sassy Vigilante (Kindle Worlds) (Siren Song #2) by Gracen Miller

Blurb:
Deader thought he had all he ever wanted. 

Forensic anthropologist, Nelson “Deader” Montreal, is the bone-whisperer. While he has the success of high profile cases under his belt, his newest investigation is a serial killer dubbed the Redeemer. Unlike other murderers, this one kills some victims and spares others, the random selection stumping law enforcement. When Deader scents his mate on one of the survivors, everything changes. Concealing evidence from the investigation doesn’t set easy with him, but what’s a tiger-shifter to do when the scent of his mate is mysteriously tied to the Redeemer? 

Then his mate brought excitement into his life. 

Skarlet Weston is a sex-toy entrepreneur moonlighting as a vigilante. Saving the world is easy with magic at her fingertips. There’s just one major hitch in her life… her people want her dead. When she’s attacked and barely escapes with her life, she seeks refuge in Blue Creek with a friend. The city might seem like a sleepy town, but thanks to the town meddler there’s never a dull moment. 

Caught between a rock and a hard place… 

Deader never expected to find his mate in a foul-mouthed redhead, but she’s everything he could’ve wanted, and more. Except she’s complicated, sassy, stubborn, and her murderous family is just the beginning of her issues. Worried he won’t be able to protect her from enemies he can’t identify he’s thrown into a tailspin when the Redeemer unexpectedly strikes again. Can he dismiss his oath to law enforcement and ignore Skarlet’s involvement with the Redeemer? Or will he be forced to choose between them? 

…has never come in a sexier package. 

My review:
Skarlet Weston is a sex-toy entrepreneur moonlighting as a vigilante. Forensic anthropologist, Nelson “Deader” Montreal, is the bone-whisperer. He works with the cops. Can these two really make it together?
I love this story. I wasn’t sure I would at first but Skarlet and Deader grew on me as the story evolved.  This is a high energy exciting tale that will take you in directions you never thought it would go. A truly fun read.
