Diane's Review ~ Acquainted by London Miller

AcquaintedAcquainted by London Miller
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

description
Tension-filled romance….

Alfie. That name. I didn’t really take to it until I got to know this Alfie. I could get lost in his confident manner and his way of making Vera the only thing he focuses on when he is with her. We know he is a fixer for anyone with the right price. His past is under a cloud. It should all matter but it didn’t. Not at all.

“He feared nothing. He lost nothing. Alfie was a gangster, through and through.”

Vera grew up in the middle of that world and distanced herself from her father completely while trying to keep the rest of her family close. She wanted nothing to do with the Mafia Bratva but little did she know the man she was falling in love with, defined it…

This author writes some of the best mafia romances I’ve ever read so this story grabbed my attention right away. If I compared it to other titles, I would say this is not as dark or gritty as ones I’ve read but that didn’t take away from this passionate and emotion-filled story. Mafia may be the genre, but it is the characters and the friction between them that stole this show.

“She wished it was that simple. That she was just a girl, and he was just a guy, and it didn’t have to be any more complicated than that.”

Of course, that is not the case as the complications keep piling up along with tension that built to a delicious high. That tension was distracted in the latter chapters of the book as resolved issues made way for new ones. Intriguing, intriguing new ones. With a focus on the secondary characters, they distracted but also teased about what is to come. Cue happy dance!

Kacie's Review ~ Color Blind by Leigh Lennon

Color BlindColor Blind by Leigh Lennon
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

-Kacie, ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This was a new to me author and I really didn’t know what to expect. The blurb sounded really interesting but the reality is so much more.

I love the writing style, it was different but in a good way. I like that it was dual perspective and how it jumped back to Liz and Iz’s past to learn their history. I thought the storyline was very unique, but some instances felt like it went a little overboard. I like how one of the main themes of the book dealt with the issue of race. In this day and age, it shouldn’t be an issue or a big deal. But I thought it was written tastefully and while it depicted most southern men to be complete and total idiots, not all southerners are like that!

Liz and Iz met in college sixteen years ago. They had an instant connection to each other, but things happened that kept them apart. They reconnect by chance and they finally get their second chance at a happily ever after. There is a lot more to this story but I don’t want to chance giving it away.

There were a lot of twists and things that I didn’t see coming. I thought it was a great story and I’m hoping Candace and Lang get their own book.

THIS WEEK'S BEST SELLING AUTHOR...
ADRIENNE BELL!

I never learned how to walk in high heels. I fell in love with Converse instead. I wear them pretty much everywhere—to the grocery store, to parties, to formal occasions. Yeah, I know it’s strange way to start off a bio, but I think that one little detail gives you a pretty good image of me.

That, and apparently I can't keep a straight face if I know that someone is taking a picture of me.

I’m a wife and a mother of two. My older son has autism, so I might bring up ASD stuff every now and then. I’ve lived my whole life in Northern California. I have a deep, abiding love of all things Disneyland and Supernatural.

Teaser Share ~ Contracted by Marni Mann

Years ago, I was burned by a woman.

I forgave, but I haven’t forgotten, and it’s a road I’ll never go down again.

My career has become my life instead. I’m Max Graham, the biggest music agent in the business. Women love me, but I don’t do love anymore. I’ve found another way to meet my needs.

Eve Kennedy—stylist to the stars and total bombshell. By far, she’s the most daring woman I’ve ever had in my bed with a sexual appetite as ferocious as mine.

We might just have the hottest sex life in Miami and LA.

We don’t date anyone else—although, sometimes, we invite someone for a night. We travel the world, and I lavish her with gifts. But she knows my career comes first.

And the best part? For the past two years, she’s been happy with our arrangement.

Or so I thought.

I’ve survived heartbreak once before, but this one could be the end of me.

Teaser Share ~ Kissing Jenna by Kristen Proby

From New York Times Bestselling Author Kristen Proby comes the newest installment in her beloved Big Sky Series…
Jenna Hull owns and manages vacation rentals in her hometown of Cunningham Falls, Montana. She’s just completed the construction of her most exhausting project, the one she’s put her heart and soul into. The inviting, opulent Snow Wolf Cottages are the first ski in/ski out tree houses in the world.
Her biggest dream is about to come true, and she can’t let anything distract her.
Christian Wolfe is Hollywood’s it actor. If the magazines are to be believed, he’s the sexiest man on earth. He’s preparing for the biggest movie role of his life, and his agent has booked him in a hot new ski lodge in Montana, tucked away from crazy fans. He can’t wait for the break.
But what Christian isn’t prepared for is Jenna. With a face that could easily co-star with him in a movie and her ambition to put her stamp on Cunningham Falls, he can’t stay away. But even more intriguing than her beauty is the fact that she’s not at all impressed with his celebrity status, only turned on by the man behind the fame.

The love they’ve found is perfect—but time is running out before real life intrudes. Can they survive with both their dreams—and hearts—intact? Goodreads: https://bit.ly/2Id1v87
