Loving me some cowboys!!!! Give me Texas Pride!!

Yes....I know the other bitch has review this book but I loved it so much that I could not leave my two cents out. I finally found a break in my school schedule for some me time and I filled it with two gorgeous men. Kitt and Austin. 

If you want the synopsis of the book you can check out Super Tatee's review here

This book is magnificent. I love an author who can spin a tail but one who can get you emotionally involved with their characters is phenomenal. I truly fell in love with both Kitt and Austin. I loved how they were a perfect match for each other and how their differences weren't so completely different that they constantly battled each other.

Kindle Alexander is amazing. If you have not had the privilege of reading her works yet, you need to. It's a wonderful experience. 

Check out her website here

You can get Texas Pride at Amazon or Barnes & Noble.

A Grand Slam!!! And it's outta here!!!

Oh my goodness, I think it's time for me to go back to the ball park!!! *fans self* Some one bring me a cold one. Have you read Grand Slam by J.T. Cheyanne yet?? You haven't? OMG you are soooo missing out.

The synopsis of Grand Slam can be found here at Good Reads.

I love Brock. Truly I do. He finds himself to be nerdy and because of a former boyfriend thinks he's boring. (I believe I have found a kindred spirit in Brock.) Spencer is the hot ball player *drools* and knows what he wants.....Brock. 

I liked that these two characters are openly gay. That alone brings a lot to the table and has you focusing on other parts of the story such as how will their relationship work and if will it last. Even though they are out in the open as gay there still homophobia coming from a closed minded ballplayer but you can see the comradary and support from Spencer's friends. 

One of my favorite parts are Brock's niece and nephew and their blatant honesty. Out of the mouths of babes. The instant attraction between the two and the how comfortable they are really brings a lot to this book. 

J.T blew me away with this one. She pulled me into the story and kept me hooked and made me fall in love with Brock and Spencer. All in all it's a beautifully written romance. I loved every minute of it.

Restraining Orders, Porn Writing Grannies and Cardboard Brett Farve.....Oh My!!!

What happens when an accountant decides to grab life by the horns and try something new? Apparently a pirate named Dave, a lot of pastel fleece, and blackmail—just to start with...
     Leave it to me to wind up in a group of porno writing grannies who discuss sex toys and apple cobbler in the same breath. Also leave it to me to leak an outlandish plot idea to a bestselling author with the morals of a rabid squirrel. And only I could get arrested for a jewelry heist I didn’t commit—by a hunky cop whose handcuffs just might tempt me to sign up for a life of crime. Maybe I’ve found my calling after all...

The other night I had the pleasure of sitting in on a chat with author Robyn Peterman. Before that chat I hadn't the pleasure of reading her book How Hard Can it Be? After a fabulous time listening to her and the hosts talk about the book and the characters I bought the book and held on for one heck of a ride. 

OMG!!! I never laughed so hard in my life while reading a book!!! My face would hurt, tears formed in my eyes and dang it I couldn't breathe. There were parts that I wanted to call and tell my sister about but I couldn't stop laughing in order to make the call!! She told me it was a good thing I wasn't reading in public, they would think I was crazy. *laughs*

From the first chapter I was laughing and I was in love with this book. The only reason I had to put it down was because the battery in my Kindle was screaming at me that it needed more juice. (Damn needy thing) I truly love the characters that Robyn has created. And the Granny Porn group sounds a lot like me and my girlfriends in a couple of decades. *grins* 

I laughed and was in shock of the tale that is Pirate Dave and His Randy Adventures. It looks as if it will have its own novella soon and the sequel to this one due sometime in December. I am super excited for both. 

If you enjoy a bit of mystery, some romance, a lot of laughter, talk of butt plugs and a huge vocabulary for.....well a man's.....YOU KNOW!!!! *falls over laughing*  You need to read this book. I promise you will enjoy it. Just don't forget to wear adult diapers or at least be prepared to change your panties. It's pee in your pants kinda funny.

          Do you like M/M stories? Do you like cowboys? Smokin’ hot sex? If you answered yes to these questions I have just the book for you, Texas Pride. I don’t want to give too much away so here are the basics, caution there are SPOILERS.

         This story is about Austin Grainger a mega movie star who buys a ranch in his home town in order to retire and live the quiet life hidden from prying eyes. Next door is an old friend from high school, Kitt Kelly, a sexy cowboy who is trying to save his family’s business. Both men are strong willed, determined, passionate, and living a lie. Neither one has been able to truly be who they are or be with who they want for fear of what others might think. Austin had a woman pretending to be his fiancĂ©, and Kitt keeps his trysts out of town. But once the two men reconnect Austin is determined to have a relationship with Kitt. There are many obstacles the two have to face including the media. But the one that is the hardest, I think, for them is getting Kitt to come to terms with coming out to his family, friends and colleagues.

          Now you know some of what the story is about, now if you want  to know the rest you need to read the book. Trust me you won’t be disappointed. I know there may be those who think I am biased, but I know what I like and I happen to love Kindle Alexander. She is an amazing talent, she creates worlds and characters that are both believable and endearing.  For me a big thing in reading any book by any author is I have to fall in love with the characters, I have to care about their story and where they are going. And Kindle Alexander has never disappointed me there. I am looking forward to her next big adventure.

Give me the Black Dagger Brotherhood and back away slowly.

Lover at Last is a BIG Ol’ book. So much was going on. Did I like it? Hell yeah!! Now while I have been waiting on Blay and Qhuinn’s story for a long time, much like many other BDB fans, what made me love this book the most wasn’t their love story. I love the heroics of Qhuinn, the tear jerkin’ moments, the more insight on new and older characters (Lovin me some Shadows!!!), and OMG….. I loved Xcor before but now I’m falling even more in love with this one.

Now while we were promised a full length book and not a novella with Qhuay, with all that is going on at this point with the side stories, it felt like Blay and Qhuinn were given a novella and the rest was just filled in. Don’t get me wrong. I loved the book. I just felt that Blay and Qhuinn were gypped on the transition of their love story. There was a lot of sex going on, hawt sex, but not enough of the emotional transition. Yes, they were best friends. Yes, Blay was in love with Qhuinn before he was and during his time with Saxton. Yes, Qhuinn regretted not saying or acting upon the feelings he had for Blay. But I guess I was just hoping for more of an emotional rollercoaster ride. *pouts*

I did love the side stories going on. So much so that I am left ticked and wondering how long before they are going to play out. HELLO?? How many books did Qhuay go on for before their "HEA"? For those who don’t know yet The King is the next book. Yes it’s a back step toward Wrath. (Many of you know my stance on how authors sometimes leave their first characters in the shadows as they move on through their series. I am looking forward to this.) But now I have to wait a year for that, and then who knows who’s book will be next? (And yes I know the WARDen can’t crank out great books superfast nor would I want her to, but every time I finish a good book I whine that I have to wait a year for the next. *laughs*)

The many side stories got me to thinking about word counts. So I went digging, and bear with me this is all that I could find.

Dark Lover: 118,833
Lover Eternal: 125,574
Lover Awakened: 136,807
Lover Unbound: 159,404
Lover Enshrined: 162,403
Lover Reborn: 199,157
Lover at Last: 199,807

Notice a pattern here? While I get super excited about most of the new character and more insight on the older ones who have yet to get their own story, by the looks of it each book’s word count is getting bigger and bigger. The books not only have a side story or two, there are several going on. So while I was excited that Lover at Last was such a large book, after reading it I realized it was a lot more side stories than Qhuinn and Blay’s story.

With all that being said, I still loved this book. It’s the Black Dagger Brother. It’s hot, tall, muscular, you just wanna lick them, vampires. It’s J.R. Ward. I was drawn into this world with Dark Lover and there is no escaping for me. I’ll continue to read this series until the WARDen decides to end it.
