New Review! Love Unexpected by J.C. Santo 3 Cranky Stars

Love Unexpected (Navy Love, #2)Love Unexpected by J.C. Santo
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

3 Cranky Stars

Teagan is Tessa's little sister. She moved to Norfolk to go to college and be closer to Tessa. Teagan is in love with Love. She can almost romanticize any situation until she meets Reed.

Reed is a player and not wanting any kind of attachment. He's content with his one night stands until Teagan. She flipped his world upside down causing him to question everything about his life.

This author has a talent of sucking you into the story. The characters are amazing and the romance is out of this world HOT. This has the potential to be a 5 star book but the editing needs work. At times I found myself rereading sections just to figure out what was being said. It really distracted me from the story. With that said if you stick with it the book is really good.

I really loved this story. The characters are fun and people I'd love to know. This author portrays real life situations, the good, bad, ugly and irreversible. I wanted to give this 5 stars but the book needs a re-edit. At times the mistakes had me wanting to stop reading but I'm glad I forged on. This series has the potential to be a 5 star rating and a best seller. I look forward to reading more.

New Review! Redemption Island by L.B. Dunbar 5 Cranky Stars

Redemption Island: Island Duet OneRedemption Island: Island Duet One by L.B. Dunbar
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Cranky Stars

Redemption Island by L.B. Dunbar is an amazing dark romance read. It will make you reevaluate your life. There are twists and turns that will have you thinking about the story, long after you have read it.

The story of Juliet and Tack is redemption after their own personal dramas. While this is a departure from the normal genre that Dunbar writes; she has knocked this one out of the ballpark.
I was seriously blown away with how different this book was from her other stories. This is a good thing. I love how the backstory was sprinkled throughout the story. It gives you a chance to see how much the main characters have evolved. I thought the dialogue was on point. The interaction between Tack and Juliet was realistic. The action is steadily paced, along with the characters growth.

This book took me out of my comfort zone. It made me think about second chances, finding myself, and what I would do if I was placed in Juliet’s situation. While at first, I had zero sympathy for Tack. I really felt like he had brought on all his problems onto himself, I almost overlooked the fact that he was showing growth. There were a few moments where I felt like screaming at him to grow up.

The dynamic between the two main characters and the secondary characters was fleeting. I could sense the tension between Tack and Colton, and I really wish there was more of an explanation of why they antagonized one another. That is the only issue that I had with the story. L.B. Dunbar, on the off chance that you read this review: I want you to know that you did an amazing job. I will recommend this story to everyone who loves stories like this.

New Review! Untamable by Jamie Schlosser 4.5 Cranky Stars

UntamableUntamable by Jamie Schlosser
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4.5 Cranky Stars

Estelle Winter is a cat hoarder plain and simple. Her life has taken a dramatic turn when she realizes she has more cats than she knows what to do with. Several cats with their own unique personalities and one jerk cat named Peter. Enough said. She lives a very solitary life and runs a costume store in town. She enlists the help of The Pussy Tamer. I know go ahead and laugh. What she didn't expect was her world to be rock by one sexy man who knew his way with a p......cat. Estelle is the quiet cat hoarder who shrinks into the background. She's a wild woman with a potty mouth.

Emery Matheson was known as The Pussy Tamer. He wasn't always a guy on tv dealing with hostile cats and making them loveable again. He has big dreams of being a veterinarian and saving animals sadly life had other plans. In order to take care of his father he accepts the job of a cat tamer on national tv. His life may seem all great with the random phone calls from women but he is lonely. When he's given the assignment of helping a cat hoarder he assumes she will be some cranky old lady but boy was he ever wrong. He meets a spitfire of a girl who knocks his feet out from under him.

I laughed from page one. This book was what I needed at the right time. I mean come on look at that cover! Who can resist a cute kitty and sexy arms? Estelle was a freak in disguise and she had me laughing even at her deplorable driving skills.

Emery was sexy plain and simple. His innuendos and cheesy lines on tv killed me yet he had such a giant heart. This is my first book by this author and I'm so happy I took the chance. There is nothing more that this girl loves than cats and sexual innuendos. All hail the pussy tamer. I wonder if Amazon will flag me for gratuitous use of that word? Read this book it's upbeat and happy and full of laughs.
