Review: Fly with Me by Chanel Cleeton

Fly with Me by Chanel Cleeton
Series: Wild Aces, Book 1
Publisher: Berkley
Genre: Contemporary Romance Fly with Me Cover
ISBN: 9781101986967
Release Date: May 3, 2016
Source: Publisher

U.S. Air Force fighter pilot Noah Miller—call sign Burn—loves nothing more than flying hard and fast. When he meets a gorgeous and sassy woman while partying in Las Vegas, he immediately locks on to her.

Jordan Callahan owns a thriving clothing boutique, but her love life is far less successful. Her luck changes when six feet, two inches of sexy swagger asks her to dance and turns her world upside down.

One scorching weekend becomes an undeniable chemistry that they can’t leave in Vegas. But the long distance relationship and their different lives threaten to ground their romance. And when the dangers of Noah’s job become all too real, Jordan learns being with a fighter pilot means risking it all for a shot at love…

Fly with Me is a story that starts out with flashy fun and red-hot eroticism and then turns into something deeper and heart-wrenching. Chanel Cleeton takes readers on one hell of a journey in this first Wild Aces book and I loved every bit of it.

When sassy boutique owner Jordan meets cocky fighter pilot Noah during her sister’s bachelorette weekend in Vegas, she thinks she’s got his number. The attraction between them burns bright, but there’s a playfulness to their initial encounters that drew me in from the start. Jordan is confident, clever, and I absolutely loved the way she owns her attitude. Noah is sexy-as-sin and completely in love with flying F-16s. They only planned on a weekend fling, but what happens in Vegas can’t stay in Vegas, because – much to the shock of both Jordan and Noah – they want more. Even after tearing up the sheets, they can’t seem to let go of one another. Though Noah is a U.S. Air Force fighter pilot currently stationed in Oklahoma and Jordan owns her own clothing boutique in Florida, the two decide they’re going to see where their connection takes them and try for a long-distance relationship.

What really made me fall in love with Fly with Me is that there is no false drama – the obstacles Jordan and Noah face are painfully realistic. Falling in love may be easy for them, but that doesn’t ensure they’ll get a happily ever after. Ms. Cleeton does and incredible job of showing how difficult making a life can be when the one you love is in the military. Sure, Noah and his fellow fighter pilots are all drop-dead gorgeous and have the sexy swagger of a fantasy military hero. But Ms. Cleeton doesn’t shy away from showing both the rewards and the incredibly high cost of being and loving a fighter pilot. Noah and Jordan’s burgeoning relationship is tested by separation, schedules, curveballs, and the possibility of heartbreak. What Jordan and Noah deal with, separately and as a couple, makes me respect them and their love story all the more. This is a romance that takes work, and I absolutely loved the reality mixed in with the fantasy.

Fly with Me is truly an exceptional blend of sensual fun and gripping emotion. I found myself falling deeper in love with the story the more Jordan’s life became entwined with that of Noah and his military family. Ms. Cleeton takes Jordan and Noah on a rocky road to happily ever after, one with ups and downs that will keep you turning the pages of Fly with Me late into the night. By the end of the book, I was so invested in the world of the Wild Aces that I wanted to drop everything and dive right into the next book, Into the Blue. Fly with Me is by turns sexy, sassy, and soulful, and it’s a story that will stay with me for a very long time.

Review: The Untamed Earl by Valerie Bowman

Thursday, April 28, 2016

The Untamed Earl by Valerie Bowman
Series: Playful Brides, Book 5
Publisher: St. Martin’s Paperbacks
Genre: Historical Romance The Untamed Earl Cover
ISBN: 9781250072580
Release Date: May 3, 2016
Source: Publisher

Lady Alexandra Hobbs, the daughter of the Duke of Huntley, has intended to marry Lord Owen Monroe since she first glimpsed him from the window of her bedchamber, back when she was just a girl. But the duke has already chosen Alex’s infamously spoiled elder sister, Lavinia, for Owen. And now there’s no turning back.

Owen has spent most of his bachelor years drinking, gambling, and skirt-chasing. He won’t see another pound from his parents, however, until he’s engaged to Lavinia. Desperate, he accepts an offer from her innocent and spirited―and absolutely beautiful―sister Alex: She will
turn him into a perfectly tamed suitor, and show him how to woo the shrew. But when Alex’s true motives come to light, will their bargain lead to recriminations―or to a romance that defies everyone’s expectations?

Lady Alexandra Hobbs fell in love with Lord Owen Monroe when she was fifteen and saw him standing up for her brother and his friend against some bullies. It’s been three years since that day and though Owen has a reputation for being a wastrel, Alex is still dazzled by him. Unfortunately, Alex’s parents have just declared that Owen will be courting and (they hope) marrying Alex’s sister, Lavinia.

Owen has no desire to marry just yet, but he’ll be cut off if he doesn’t acquiesce to his own father’s demands that he get Lady Lavinia Hobbs to marry him. It’s just Owen’s luck that Lavinia is a shrew in every sense of the word and that her sister, Alex, is much better suited to him. Then fate seems to deal Owen a kind hand, for Alex makes a bargain with Owen: in exchange for helping her become more polished in order to catch the attentions of a man she’s in love with, Alex will teach Owen what he needs to know to win Lavinia. But what will happen when Owen discovers that he is the man Alex has her eye on?

There are those books that are so fun, so charming, so irresistible that you smile when thinking of them long after you’ve finished the last page. The Untamed Earl is exactly that kind of book. Valerie Bowman’s fifth Playful Brides book is a sprightly, engaging, utterly delightful historical romance that I simply adored.

I absolutely loved Alex. She’s open, honest, funny, and just a bit daring. She’s also been overlooked most of her life; the consequence of being neither the spoiled eldest daughter nor the male heir. I wanted to see Alex find someone who would love and appreciate her for who she is, and it’s no surprise that Owen is the man for the job. Owen has spent a good number of years drinking, carousing, and caring more about his clothes than anything of substance. But beneath all that there lies a man with a good heart and a quick mind who just needs that extra push of someone believing in him. It was great watching Owen come into his own over the course of the story, to see him become the man those who know him best are sure he can be.

As individuals, Owen and Alex are easy to like. But together they are simply fantastic. The dialogue in The Untamed Earl is bright, snappy, and made me grin more than once. Though Alex has had a crush on Owen for years, what we see develop over the course of the story is a true romance between two equals. Owen and Alex’s love story develops organically, though Ms. Bowman doesn’t make things easy on them. The drama created by the obstacles that keep Alex and Owen apart did threaten to make the book falter once or twice, but – given that our hero and heroine had some extra help from past Playful Brides heroes and heroines – I had no doubt the story would reach a satisfying conclusion.

It’d be remiss of me not to mention that The Untamed Earl is loosely based on Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew. Ms. Bowman weaves the elements of the Bard’s work in seamlessly, and it was fun to see parts of the play pop up, though the story does stand strong on its own. I love stories that are a twist on the classics and Ms. Bowman does it just right.

The Untamed Earl is the fifth book in the Playful Brides series, but having not read the previous four novels I can safely say that Owen and Alex’s book can be read as a standalone (if you don’t mind a few minor spoilers). The upside to starting with The Untamed Earl is that I can glom up the rest of the Playful Brides stories and make the wait for the sixth book, The Legendary Lord, feel shorter. Having loved Alex and Owen’s story as much as I did, that’s exactly what I’ll do. If you enjoy lighthearted, fun historical romances, you won’t want to miss The Untamed Earl!

Waiting on Wednesday: Magic Binds by Ilona Andrews

Tuesday, April 26, 2016

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine which spotlights eagerly anticipated upcoming releases!

I absolutely love the fabulous author duo that is Ilona Andrews and whenever I recommend their work, I always say start with the Kate Daniels series. It's an incredibly smart, interesting, funny as hell, completely addictive series with a kick-ass heroine that leads the charge of characters you have to love. The only downside to the Kate Daniels books is that each time I finish one, I want the next right away, which is why I'm incredibly impatient for the release of this week's Waiting on Wednesday pick, Magic Binds!

Warning: Minor spoilers for the series are in the blurb below.

Magic Binds Cover Title: Magic Binds

Review: Seattle Wolf Pack Boxed Set by Kristin Miller

Seattle Wolf Pack Boxed Set by Kristin Miller
Series: Seattle Wolf Pack, Books 1-3

Genre: Paranormal Romance Seattle Wolf Pack Cover

You’ll hunger for more…

Delicious alpha heroes protecting their mates at all cost? Yes, please. Take a bite out of these three, steamy full-length novels from New York Times bestseller Kristin Miller in this exclusive boxed set for a limited time only. Exquisite paranormal love stories with super hot alphas and the tenacious heroines who make these werewolves howl.

Devour them all in just one click.

Gone With the Wolf
When CEO and alpha werewolf Drake Wilder discovers that his one true love is a secretary in his company, his primal instincts kick into overdrive. Free-spirited bartender Emelia Hudson wants nothing more than to make her Seattle-based bar succeed. Upon learning that her bar has become property of Wilder Financial, Emelia is determined to get some answers. When Drake’s twin brother senses that Drake has found his match—and now inherits their father’s billion dollar estate—he plans to take Emelia out. Drake vows to protect her at all costs, but he might have to pay with his own life.

Four Weddings and a Werewolf
Logan Black, former Marine and bodyguard for the Seattle Wolf Pack, hates weddings and has no plans to enter into matrimonial misery. But when he’s hired to protect a hot-to-trot wedding planner with a werewolf stalker, he’s forced to put his feelings aside. Not such an easy task when the damsel can turn him on with a single smoldering glance. The chemistry between them seems fated, but with his playboy attitude, her hatred for werewolves, and a stalker lurking in the shadows, will passion be enough to keep them together?

So I Married a Werewolf
Carter Griffin, enforcing officer for the Seattle Wolf Pack, has been offered the promotion of his dreams…if he can find a wife to prove he’s over his playboy ways. But Carter’s already been there, done that. Faith Hamilton needs money to put her younger brother through college. Okay, and she totally wants Carter, her sexy next-door neighbor, to look at her as more than a friend. It’s too bad size 12 and plain isn’t his type. At all. When the two friends strike a deal to help one another out, will it spark a love neither anticipated?

Gone with the Wolf
Kristin Miller starts off the Seattle Wolf Pack trilogy with a bang! Gone with the Wolf is a fast-paced and fun story of opposites attracting. Drake Wilder is a centuries-old alpha werewolf who has long since given up on finding his Luminary, or fated mate. Drake’s life is serious and orderly… Or at least it is until his Luminary, Emelia Hudson, bursts onto the scene. Emelia is a bar owner who wants to take the stuffy Drake down a peg or two, especially when his company buys her bar out from underneath her. Emeila and Drake couldn’t be more different, but their attraction is instantaneous and knocks them both off their feet. Emelia’s sassy, independent nature is at odds with Drake’s idea of how his mate should behave, so it’s no spoiler to say that the road to happily ever after isn’t an easy one. There are ups and downs, miscommunication and misunderstandings on both sides, and neither Drake nor Emelia are perfect. That being said, when they’re together they shine and the pages of Gone with the Wolf fly by. Both Emelia and Drake have a lot of learning to do, and watching them grow and move from lust and a fated pull toward one another to true love is lovely.

The world of the Seattle Wolf Pack series that Ms. Miller sets up in Gone with the Wolf is intriguing. There’s danger, politics, history, and tradition that adds weight to the story and I wanted to dive more into the world and Drake’s family in particular. I was also left with questions on some (spoilerish) world building points I wish were better explained. However, even with these minor quibbles, Emelia and Drake’s story is a spirited, sexy tale that’s just plain fun to read.

Four Weddings and a Werewolf
What do you do when you’re a werewolf who is tasked with guarding a woman who hates your kind? If you’re Logan Black, you find yourself in a heap of trouble when you fall for said woman.

Veronica Vale is one of the rare humans who knows all about werewolves; no surprise since her sister was attacked and turned into one. Veronica loathes werewolves, but she doesn’t have time to dwell on her hatred since she’s got a secret admirer who may or may not be a stalker, and a werewolf sister who’s marrying anther werewolf. Four Weddings and a Werewolf is entertaining, but it misses a bit of the magic of the other two Seattle Wolf Pack stories. The story’s at a disadvantage because it features a heroine who is blindly prejudiced against werewolves and a hero who has to keep his supernatural nature a secret from her in order to protect her. I understood Veronica’s prejudice initially, but it wore thin after a while. And though I eventually grew to like her, I never adored her. As for Logan, he’s a sinfully sexy hero and – after his all-too-brief introduction in Gone with the Wolf – I couldn’t wait to learn more about him. Logan has seen what love and fated mates can do to a person, and he doesn’t want that for himself (for reasons too spoilerish to explain). He’s a funny, sensual, and protective hero, but I never felt we got to dive into his past as much as I had hoped. I wanted to see more of Logan’s history, but this is a tale definitely dominated by the heroine (which would have been fine if I had liked her more). As a couple, Veronica and Logan have good chemistry, and by the end of the story I was rooting for them.

The threat of danger from Veronica’s stalker added a level of intrigue and excitement to Four Weddings and a Werewolf that definitely benefited the story. So while I had some issues with the character development, I enjoyed Four Weddings and a Werewolf overall.

So I Married a Werewolf
I’m an absolute sucker for a good friends-to-lovers story and So I Married a Werewolf is an utterly delightful one. Ms. Miller brings the Seattle Wolf Pack trilogy to a satisfying close with Carter and Faith’s heartwarming romance.

Carter Griffin is a playboy werewolf who needs to improve his image for a promotion by getting a fake fiancée. Faith Hamilton, werewolf dog trainer and Carter’s best friend, is the perfect woman for the job. Carter knows he’s in no danger of falling for Faith – even if she was his type, Carter found his fated mate long ago and they had an absolutely horrible marriage. For her part, Faith has had the hots for Carter for a long time, but she knows he’d never be attracted to her, let along fall in love with her. But she’s working herself to the bone to put her brother through school and Carter offers to loan her money in exchange for her help, so what’s a girl to do?

It doesn’t take long before Carter and Faith’s fake engagement sparks some very real interest on both sides. Carter definitely needed to be smacked upside the head more than once over the course of their developing relationship, but he’s a good man (and wolf) at his core. As for Faith, perhaps my favorite thing about So I Married a Werewolf is watching her gain confidence in herself over the course of the story. She deserves to be loved and appreciated for who she is, and I loved that she finally understands that. Their romance is filled with ups and downs, takes a couple of twists, and is wonderfully satisfying. Of all three books, this one is definitely my favorite, in part due to reader preference (my fondness for the friends-to-lovers trope) and in part due to the world of Ms. Miller’s werewolves feeling the most established in this tale. Whatever the reason, I absolutely adored Carter and Faith’s romance and felt it ended the series on a high note.

The Seattle Wolf Pack Boxed Set contains three fun, very different werewolf romances in one. Though the trilogy’s main characters sometimes pop up in each other’s stories, each book can be read as a standalone. That being said, it was nice to have them all in one set so I could dive into one right after another. Kristin Miller mixes together supernatural entertainment, sensual romance, and humor incredibly well in all three books and the result is one fast-paced, addictive trilogy.

Review: A Most Dangerous Profession by Karen Hawkins

Saturday, April 23, 2016

A Most Dangerous Profession by Karen Hawkins
Series: Hurst Amulet, Book 3
Publisher: Pocket Books
Genre: Historical Romance A Most Dangerous Profession Cover
ISBN: 9781439175941
Source: Publisher
Blue Ribbon Rating: 5 out of 5

Moira MacAllister has been a spy, a thief and a con artist, but never before has a job been so important. An enemy has kidnapped her daughter, and to get the child back, Moira has to steal an ancient onyx box. But someone besides her unwanted employer is also looking for the box…a man Moira fears she cannot outwit; her husband.

Robert Hurst has never forgiven Moira for tricking him into marriage. Unfortunately, he also has never been able to get Moira out of his mind. While searching for an onyx box that holds the secret to finding a family heirloom, Robert’s path crosses with Moira’s once again. This time, however, Robert is not about to let his wayward wife go. She’s hiding something from him – something important. But will Moira’s secret be the thing that brings them together? Or will it be the final straw that breaks their marriage apart?

I have a new favorite Karen Hawkins book; A MOST DANGEROUS PROFESSION! There’s an energy in A MOST DANGEROUS PROFESSION that buoys the book along at lightning speed. The sources of that energy are Moira and Robert. I love nothing more than a great thief meeting her match, and Moira definitely meets her match in her husband. Individually, both Moira and Robert are lively, endearing characters. As a pair, they have a reckless, wild passion that, when paired with their intelligence and kind hearts, make them impossible to resist.

Ms. Hawkins delivers one heck of a ride in A MOST DANGEROUS PROFESSION, and I did not want to put Moira and Robert’s book down. In the engaging HURST AMULET series, this book stands out. And given the teasing glimpses Ms. Hawkins has given regarding Michael Hurst and his heroine, I am excited as all get out to read the next HURST AMULET tale!
