Review: Hotter than Hot - Book #0.5 Pecan Creek - Tina Leonard - February 2013\
Wanting something sinfully sweet to read this New Year's eve ? Check out Tina Leonard's book "Hotter than Hot" . This was a fun read and I really enjoyed it as in a way I related to the main character Monet which I loved her name -being named after the famous painter. Monet is a librarian by day and by night she writes a column for the local newspaper as Allure Crimson . She is a love advice columnist, shame though that all her writings are stemmed from her fantasies as she has never experienced the type of relationship and love she writes about. All this is about to change though as newcomer Elijah comes riding into town on his hog and heads to stay at Monet's fathers house as her dad is the sheriff of Pecan Creek. As time passes, Monet and Elijah become closer despite the fact that he shouldn't get into anything with her. What will be the result though when Monet discovers that Elijah has been sent to protect her and her sister from danger and that he was being paid to be near her from her father ?
Review: How it Rolls - Book #2 Love and Skate Series - Lila Felix - February 2013 Falcon Black is one of those people who aren't one who you should judge by the cover as he is tattooed and has a mohawk. By day however Falcon is an accountant and number crunching square. He may be in his 20's but instead of partying it up and sleeping around, he would rather head to bed early, work and spend time with his family. This story starts when Falcon's family hires Reed Wolfe - a girl who intrigues Falcon but she's hiding a big secret and Falcon can't help but discover and then in turn make her life better. That is the Love part of the series. The Skate part is that Falcon's sister-in-law Nellie is part of a roller derby team and they have the try-outs and Reed makes the team. This book reminded me of the Pysch episode when Juliet joins a roller derby team in order to solve a crime crossed with the film Whip It. If you are wanting a book with Roller Derby and one that teaches us not to judge people by what they look like. This is also a great series to read if you have enjoyed The Derby Girl by Tamara Morgan.

Review: Reaching the Edge - Book #2.5 Edge Series - Jennifer Comeaux - January 2013
At the end of book #2 we read as Emily and Sergei established a relationship and eventually they got married. Book #2.5 is a quick 14-page read that tells the story after their wedding and their first romantic encounter together. Just to let people know, this is one of those 5-10 minute reads, that once you get stuck into the book -be careful as it will be over before you know it. Trust me I was shocked as I didn't realise. Fans of the movies Cutting the Ice and Ice Princess will enjoy the book "Reaching the Edge". Perfect if you are needing a quick on the go reading book or have a fancy for short stories and an itching for Ice Skating Tales this winter.

Two years ago Lottie and her friend Lexie went to a party where her friend was hooking up with Zac and then Lottie decided she wanted to head home and since Zac was too drunk too drive, his brother Zan ended up driving and wham bam , a car crash happened.

What happens next though is that her roommate happened to be Zac's girlfriend and Zan is also at college and his room is right next door to Lottie's twin brother Will. As the story goes along , we discover what type of people the main characters are and discover that in order to climb back to the top, we sometimes have to fall deep. This is one series that I am looking forward to reading more of as I quite enjoy the author Chelsea M. Cameron. If you love edgy New Adult books, then this is a series for you.
