What To Read This Weekend…ZOEY AND THE NICE GUY by Carter Ashby

I started a new series this week and just finished the first one! It is a trilogy that deals with three lifelong friends and how they find their guys! The series is called BIG GIRL PANTIES. All three books are available now. The feel I got from just reading the first one is that each girl, who are in their early 20’s, has behavior/habits leftover from growing up that they need to recognize and deal with. Shall we say,put on their ‘big girl panties’ and grow up. I really enjoyed the first one and look forward to reading the sequels!

Series Order:

Zoey and the Nice Guy (Book 1)

May and the Tough Guy (Book 2)

Addy and the Smart Guy (Book 3)

Zoey and The NIce Guy Cover

For Zoey Odell, the definition of family is her two best friends, Maya and Addy. So when Maya makes the decision to leave her abusive husband, Zoey is only too happy to lavish her with support and a temporary home. Unfortunately, taking in her best friend also means seeing more of that no good do-gooder, Kellen Bradley.

For Kellen, the definition of family has just been shattered. After finding out that his brother is an abusive monster, he can’t help but question himself and his parents. The one thing he knows for certain is that he’ll do anything to take care of his sister-in-law and her children. For them, he would walk into gunfire, pass through the flames of hell…even go head-to-head with Zoey Odell.

Zoey has no intention of letting him in, but Kellen is done taking her crap. Life has just gotten real and he’s more than ready to shed his nice-guy image. When he finally stands up to her, Zoey starts seeing him in a new light. As the attraction turns mutual, she finds it more and more difficult to hide behind her carefully formed walls. And Kellen is finding himself more and more driven to tear those walls down.

 

Review:

First off, the cover is so cute and after you read the story is absolutely perfect. I appreciated that Kellan was a nice guy. I, like most females, love the brooding/tough guy, but it was nice that an author was actually writing a book about a genuinely nice guy. And Kellan was sweet. Zoey was a really interesting character. She is in her early 20’s, pretty responsible, but clearly dealing with abandonment issues from her childhood. The great thing about this book was that you see her grow through her relationship with Kellan to realize some of these problems and that she needs to deal with them. Kellan puts up with A LOT from her. There are time I wanted to smack her because she was being so rude to her friends and Kellan, mainly when her mother visits. She doesn’t recognize how irrational she acts when her mother is in the picture and it was a little painful to read. 

The chemistry between the characters was good and well written. There probably could have been only one of a certain type of scenes. The rest seemed unnecessary for this particular story. The story seemed more about Zoey’s personal growth while falling in love. 

This author integrated the other characters very well. I feel every character introduced was used well and fully. It’s clear who the other books will deal with, but I loved that. It just makes me want to read the rest of the series all the more. 

Overall, 3.5/5 stars.

Excerpt

Jamie had amazed herself at her reaction when she saw Kevin. It was like she was watching herself on a TV screen with no controls. I must be drunk on this fresh air. Pleasantly surprised at Kevin’s rugged good looks, she tried to deny the raw sensual tremors he set off and helped him unpack the truck. He was tall and muscular with sand-colored hair, deep blue, kind eyes, and a small cleft in his chin. Don’t even think about it. The last thing I need is to get involved again.

“We need to pick a spot and set up our tents,” he informed her as they trekked toward camp. Many of the choice areas were already taken so Kevin continued to search for patches of level ground for the tents. Common areas with picnic tables, fire pits, and tents were scattered everywhere. They hiked a little farther, toward the outskirts of the tent city.

He put the gear down and explained how he needed to closely scrutinize the ground for rocks, large sticks, and other natural decorations that could cause the body sore spots by morning.

“The tents aren’t big so they don’t need much ground area. This looks good.”

As he pulled one tent out of its pack sack, Jamie instinctively began to help, but her inexperience was obvious.

“I don’t know what to do, but I’m teachable.”

Kevin laughed. “Here, let me show you. It’s pretty simple. Even a city girl can do it.”

“Who? Me? What makes you think I’m a city girl?” Wide-eyed, she pointed to herself.

“Maybe the fact that you’ve lived in New York City all your life?”

“You’ve got a point there. But like I said, I’m teachable.” They bantered back and forth as they erected the first tent. “Okay.” Kevin stood back and admired their success.

“One down. This’ll be yours. Now I’ve got to find a spot for mine.” Eyes focused, surveying the ground, he walked away from her tent.

“Where are you going? Where’s your tent going to be?” The concern was obvious in her voice and he turned to look at her.

“I don’t know. What’s wrong?” His eyes searched hers.

“Like you said, I’m a city girl and I’m not used to sleeping out in the woods. How far away are you going to be?”

He laughed. “With all these tents, you don’t have to worry about animals if that’s your concern.” His face softened as he asked, “Would it make you feel better if I stayed close by?”

Relief flooded through her. “Yes.”

And with that, Kevin chuckled and pitched his tent nearby. They made a return trip to the truck for the remainder of the gear. As they unloaded their bags at the tents, Ben and Tommy came walking up.

“Hey, dinner’s ready. You guys going to eat?” Ben asked.

Trailer

Excerpt

Those bitches were gonna die.

That was a horrible thing to say about my so-called ‘friends’—and I used the word friends loosely, because true friends wouldn’t ditch you the day of your scheduled road trip because they’d rather be sunbathing in the Hamptons.

The fucking Hamptons.

Ew.

I mean, how clichéd could you get.

This was why I hated rich people.

It also sucked that I was one of those rich people.

Well, I wasn’t, but my dad was.

So by extension so was I.

When you grew up with a rock star for a dad, cameras and eyes followed you everywhere. It was exhausting.

I couldn’t just be Willow.

I was Willow Wade.

The daughter of the famous drummer Maddox Wade.

People expected greatness from me.I just wanted to graduate college without slitting my wrists.

REVIEW:

I was really excited to read this book. Unfortunately I was disappointed. I think that the concept is really interesting, but the story just fell flat for me. This book is not very long and the ending just stops the book in its tracks. You know there will be more to come. It just wasn’t as clean of an ending even when you know there will be a sequel as I like. The club owner really bothered me. He would be a complete jerk and then really nice. Then a complete jerk again, then really nice again. It would go back and forth. He should have either been given one nice moment, been an jerk the entire time or be nice the whole time. It was giving me whiplash. The attraction between the two didn’t make a lot of sense. There didn’t seem to be a climax.

I didn’t get the relationship between the main character and her mom at all. It was the more annoying parts of the book. I am assuming that it is going somewhere, but as of now I don’t know where and didn’t like it.

There were some things I did like. I liked that the lifestyle of the main character seemed realistic. There was a lot of discussion about drugs which I admired the writer for putting so much of that conversation into her book. Addiction is a serious issue and there was a understanding of it in this book.

Review: 

I love Pepper Winters. She always does a good job. This one wasn’t as good as some of the other books by here that I have read, but still enjoyable.

The guy is very intense and I loved that he is crazy smart. There were a lot of expected surprises and it ended on a horrible horrible cliffhanger.

The fact that it took forever for her to get her memory back got a little annoying. It was to be expected, but still got annoying. There was depth to this book that I was not expecting and also several surprises. It was not your typical MC book so if that is what you are looking for you won’t find it. There is a MC, but a lot more is going on and unlike other MC books.

About A REBAL IN JERICHO

After years of preparing for marriage, Catalina Santé is interested in little more than making a good match. And why not? She’s young, beautiful, educated… everything a wealthy man should want. However, a tragic accident will leave her with less than a marriage proposal—she’s fighting for her very life!

Matthew Martin spends most of his time just trying to fit into American society. It’s one of the reasons he became a deputy. Willing to risk it all in order to protect Catalina, he can’t imagine what that entails… until she’s abducted and sold to a Mexican saloon, where a border battle rages between two towns.

Can love and faith survive in such a harsh place? Will Matthew even be able to save Catalina?

See what other readers are saying about A REBEL IN JERICHO:

“Romance, intrigue and danger! It’s an exciting adventure as the reader joins Catalina on her perilous journey through the underbelly of Mexico’s dark side.” – Patricia Highton

“A delightful blend of drama, romance, and self-discovery.” – Tiffany Matus

Excerpt:

“A penny for your thoughts?” Catalina regretted asking almost as soon as the words were out. The less she knew about him, the better. Right?

 

Continuing to lean against the side, Matthew gave her a once-over.

 

He decided to have a little fun with her.

 

“Only a penny? Is that what people are charging nowadays? Not me. My thoughts are worth a whole nickel.” The laughter in his tone danced in his playful eyes, their brilliance shining like blue gems. A slow, infectious grin spread across Matthew’s face. He looked like a mischievous little boy who was trying to buy his way out of trouble after being caught with his hand in the cookie jar.

 

Catalina bit her lip in a desperate attempt to remain serious, but it was of little use.

Charmed by her softened features, Matthew took a slow step towards her. He raised a tentative hand and pushed back a curl that had worked its way loose.

Catalina’s breath stilled as the light touch of his fingers slowly trailed along her cheek. Her beautiful eyes and full mouth were almost irresistible, and he wondered if she tasted as sweet as she looked.

Unasked questions blazed from his eyes, making the cage that she was trying to construct around her heart unhinge. The sudden attraction hit her hard. She forced herself to look away and break the spell. Falling for her escort was not part of the plan.

“Look!” Catalina pointed towards the bank. “We’re just about there.”

“Then I guess we best get back to the car.” Disappointment laced his words. She didn’t have any romantic notions about him, so he best leave it at just friends.

No more goo-goo eyes.

“It shouldn’t take too long to get it started.” He picked up the conversation again as he paced back to the car with a determined step. “It’s warm out. So she doesn’t need to be cranked or anything.”

Catalina questioned his sudden change in mood. She was grateful at the flow of normal conversation between them. Still, it felt like something was suddenly missing. “Well, I suppose that’s a good thing.” She plodded along behind him, dissatisfied when they reached the Model T.

He took her hand and helped her up and into the front seat. “Shouldn’t I ride in the—”

“You’ll get a better view of things while we’re driving from up here.” He cut her off, patting the hood of the car for emphasis – a friendly grin that promised an exciting ride. After all, it was a long trip to Nogales. “Besides, it’ll be more fun.”

More fun? Hmmm…more trouble maybe. Definitely more dangerous.

About UNEASY IN NEW ORLEANS

FINNIGAN JONES HAS A PASSION FOR COOKING AND A PECHANT FOR TROUBLE.

Dead bodies aren’t on Finn’s New Orleans walking tour of cemeteries and haunted houses. Ditto disappearing bodies. Now she has to explain to Detective Jack Boyle how her missing corpse has turned up in the Mississippi putting her smack-dab in the middle of a murder investigation.

Unfortunately, another of Finn’s odd jobs is taking questionable photos for Jack’s PI brother, Tommy. After she snaps shots of a dubious pair of lovebirds, they stalk her, then kidnap her. Now Finn’s dealing with two lunatics intent on killing her. Or driving her crazy. She’s not sure which.

Because lunatics and smokin’-hot brothers aren’t enough trouble, she’s gossiping, yes gossiping, with a chef ghost at culinary school, cat-sitting her aunt’s six felines and attempting to corral her wayward teenage sister.

All Finn wants is to survive school and become the best chef in the world.

FINN’S LIFE IS ABOUT TO GET EVEN MORE COMPLICATED.

“Yep.” She knelt again, then caressed his cheek. “Can I do anything to make you more comfortable?”

 

“Kiss me.”

 

Her heart lurched. “What?”

 

“Kiss me. It’ll take my mind off the pain.”

 

Without even thinking about it, she leaned over and pressed her lips to his. He reached one arm around her neck, pulled her close and kissed her in return. Using his tongue and lips with proficiency, he didn’t kiss like a man in pain. He kissed like a man looking for more. He massaged her neck with one hand, his other came around to hold her waist. He smelled clean, tasted of Coke and kissed like a champion.

 

She quivered from her girly parts all the way down to her toes. Wow. Who knew?

 

She couldn’t have been more surprised if he’d gotten up and performed the River Dance.

 

When the sound of sirens echoed in the distance, he dropped his hand from her neck and whispered in her ear, “Finn, honey, I feel like I could run a marathon.”

 

She sat back on her heels, her lips tingling, her breath catching in her throat. “Glad I could help.”

 

He chuckled, struggling to sit up. She put her arm around his shoulder and helped him. “Better?”

 

“This is embarrassing.” He slanted an eye at her, his mouth quirking in a crooked smile. “What’ll the paramedics say?”

 

She patted his back, attempting to regain her equilibrium after a kiss that left her reeling. “Hey, it could have happened to anyone and besides, it was all my fault.

 

Falling down those steps, you’re lucky you didn’t break your neck, both legs, and half a dozen other bones. You’ve got nothing to be embarrassed about.”

 

He grinned, then spread both hands over the bulge in his lap. “I wasn’t talking about my damned leg.”

What I Read This Weekend…Persephone by Kaitlin Bevis

Screen Shot 2015-06-28 at 8.50.26 PM

Description: Daughters of Zeus, Book One

One day Persephone is an ordinary high school senior working at her mom’s flower shop in Athens, Georgia. The next she’s fighting off Boreas, the brutal god of Winter, and learning that she’s a bonafide goddess—a rare daughter of the now-dead Zeus. Her goddess mom whisks her off to the Underworld to hide until Spring.

There she finds herself under the protection of handsome Hades, the god of the dead, and she’s automatically married to him. It’s the only way he can keep her safe. Older, wiser, and far more powerful than she, Hades isn’t interested in becoming her lover, at least not anytime soon. But every time he rescues her from another of Zeus’s schemes, they fall in love a little more. Will Hades ever admit his feelings for her?

Can she escape the grasp of her powerful dad’s minions? The Underworld is a very cool place, but is it worth giving up her life in the realm of the living? Her goddess powers are developing some serious, kick-butt potential. She’s going to fight back.

Review: This book is YA and I did NOT know that! I figured it out pretty quickly, but I wish is was a romance novel!!! This book was interesting. Some myths people already know in this book and some do not. That part is a little confusing. It is also in modern times so the fact that some are known and some not is a little annoying. 

I liked parts of this book. Hades was great. Persephone was ok…it was hard since they are ‘married’ but she is still a teenager. It seems a little inappropriate which is why I wish it was a romance. It definitely ends on a cliffhanger and the ending seemed a little anticlimactic to me. Overall, I liked it. It was a good YA book and good intro into this series I just hope that the action gets a little better.

What I Read This Weekend…Jax by Kelly Gendron

Screen Shot 2015-06-28 at 8.29.00 PM

Description: “Some boys can get rough, some don’t always listen when you tell them to stop, and some boys, they’re just monsters. You gotta be careful who you play with…” ~ Jax Declan

I’m a tease, always have been. In my teens, Jax Declan tried to warn me about staying away from the bad boys. The only boy I ever wanted was Jax. But, no matter how much I tried to play with him, he rejected me.

I haven’t seen Jax Declan in years. A couple friends and I are going back to the Bayou for the summer. A little older now, and a bit wiser, I’ve decided that I’m going to find my teenage crush and I’m going to break him. This summer Jax Declan will play with me.

But the closer I get and the more I learn about the reserved, discreet, and sexy Jax Declan. Well, I’m starting to think that Jax Declan might just be one of those bad boys he tried to warn me about all those years ago. 

Review: I did like this book. It is a really good short read if that is what you are looking for. I feel like I should have liked this book more than I did. I thought this book was a little too short. It should have been longer. The story was good, but could have been expanded upon. That was part of the 3 star rating. Also I just didn’t like it very much. I should have! It had all the elements that I usually like. It just didn’t flow very well. The brothers were ok. Not totally sure if the next one will be good. The story was well set up, but not sure if it will work. Mainly because this one didn’t as well. Certain scenes were a little predictable and boring. Just not what I expected. I liked it, but just wasn’t my favorite.
