Our thoughts...

As you know I am a lover of student/teacher romance and I really enjoy this book by Sheila Grace.  I actually was lucky enough to pick up this one for free.  I've never read this author before and I wanted to give it a chance.  This was sort of student/teacher.  It was a college freshman and her calculus TA.

Audio Slave Review: Tears of Tess by Pepper Winters

Title: Tears of Tess

Genre: Dark Romance
Book Publisher: Pepper Winters

Audio Publisher: Punch Audio
Audio Pub Date: June 9, 2016
Story Rating: 4 Stars
Narration Rating: 2.75 Stars

Our thoughts...

It has taken me a long time to write this review because I have so many mixed feelings and they all have to do with the audio side of things. I have no real issues with the story. I thought I was going to have a lot, especially with how the story starts, but Winters managed to answer every question I was harboring. I was pleased and yet felt cheated out of my ranting. Mainly pleased (but pouty). The story is very dark and not for people with major triggers, but it is well-written and well-done. The relationship works, makes sense, for them and only them. Any other situation and I would be furious. They are a perfect storm. That’s all I’m going to say about the story because I enjoyed it but I had some major issues with the audio. It’s been several weeks and I’m still brooding a little, as ridiculous as that is. 

Jenny's Review: Cream of the Crop by Alice Clayton

Title: Cream of the Crop
Series: The Hudson Valley series #2

Author: Alice Clayton
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Gallery Books

Pub Date: July 12, 2016
Rating: 4 Stars

Our thoughts...

I like Alice Clayton’s sense of humor. The woman knows how to make me laugh and giggle and be happy. I consider that to be such a gift, as a reader, and I am truly thankful. Cream of the Crop is the second standalone novel in the Hudson Valley series, book one being Nuts (equally enjoyable). The story itself (plot, characters, any issues I had) is probably more of three-and-a-half stars but the humor and fun are enough to bring it up to a four for me. I just enjoyed myself reading this book.

This was a fun lighthearted read. I really enjoyed these characters and their interactions with each other. Makayla couldn’t have asked for a better best friend. Maggie would make the coolest friend.

Release Blitz: No Pants Required by Kim Karr

No Pants Required AMAZON


I, Makayla Alexander, am on a mission to reinvent myself. So when a super hot guy boards the plane and flashes his rock hard abs, I pay attention. When he sits next to me and offers me his nuts, I can’t resist. But when I choke on them and he tells me I need to work on my gag reflex, I realize I might be in over my head.
Before I know it we’re in the lavatory and attempting to join the Mile High Club. Let me just say this...anyone who tells you it’s easy to get it on at 37,000 feet isn’t telling you the truth. After the flight attendant busts us for getting frisky in the air, the only thing that can ease my total and complete mortification is the simple fact that I am never going to see him again.
Hours later, I can’t help but wonder if fate will ever allow me to become a new version of myself.
Because Fate, she’s a fickle bitch.
Case in seatmate is my new next-door neighbor.
Even with the whole fate thing we have going on, we are so not meant to be together. He’s all cool and sexy in that make love not war kind of way. Guys like him are dangerous. With that bring-you-to-your-knees body, that handsome-as-hell face, and that dirty, dirty mouth, I guarantee one glance from him wets every girl's bikini bottoms.
And then there’s me…the quirky girl looking to find herself in California. All I want to do is learn to let loose. Say words like peace and groovy. Bury my toes in the sand. Who knows, maybe even have sex on the beach.
Unable to get him out of my head, I entertain the thought of being more than just friends. I know the idea is absurd. And yet, I go with it. You see Camden Waters gets me. Really gets me. Like no other guy has before.
On this 7-mile stretch of paradise, I decide to keep things simple and just have fun...that is until fate decides to screw with me, again.
Can two people hell-bent on finding themselves realize the search should have ended the day they met? Find out in No Pants Required—a sexy, funny, romantic stand-alone, that will have you hurrying to grab your bathing suit and rushing to the beach to check out every lifeguard on duty.

Sometimes you get a book and you can tell right away that it's written by a debut author. I'm happy to say that this wasn't so in this case. Maayan's writing was so beautiful and it flowed so well.

Say Anything: Common Courtesy Should Be Common Sense

I'm going to start this off by letting ya'll know two important things: First, I am inherently a curmudgeon. I may look like a happy youngish gal on the outside but, on the inside, I'm part grumpy old man missing the way things used to be and shaking my fist at the youth of today. The second thing is that this post is in no way secretly meant to be about any circumstance going on, be it in politics, news, Facebook groups, or PTA committee meetings. So please don't take it deeper than its face value because I'm not one to beat around bushes and play scavenger hunts with my thoughts (refer back to curmudgeon statement).

These characters all bring something unique to the relationship. Katie is caring and kind, Carl is straight forward with a heart of gold and Rick is a free spirit full of love.  Carl and Rick have been in a committed relationship for years. They are happy with each other but they want more out of life. They have looked in the past for a female partner but it has never worked out. Until the met Katie, they truly believe that she is the one for them.

No Pants Required is a funny, light summer read perfect for the beach! Part of me wishes that I had a BBF like Maggie that would’ve made me a list to follow when I was younger and single.
