Review: Two Feet Under - CC Hunter



Two Feet Under (The Mortician’s Daughter, #2)

Review: Two Feet Under - Book #2 The Mortician's Daughter Series - C.C Hunter - December 2018
Years ago, I was a big fan of the TV show Ghost Whisperer and also Meg Cabot's series The Mediator.  I love stories where humans can see ghosts and help them to pass over into the light. Two Feet Under is the second book in The Morticians Daughter series and features Riley who has the gift. At the end of Book #1, she discovered that the ghost Hayden whom she had fallen in love with is, in fact, her new boyfriend Jacob's best friend Carter and he is in a coma. Book #2 starts with Riley breaking up with Jacob as she hasn't seen Hayden for a while and her heart no matter what belongs to him. Desperate to reconnect with Hayden's ghost, she goes to the ICU and sees him and meets his mother Mrs. Carter along the way and the pair get close. During her hospital visit, she is visited again by the ghost in the orange prison jumpsuit and learns his name is Mr. Brooks and he has a daughter dying - a little girl Annie whom we get to meet and read her story throughout the book. I loved the character of Annie as in a way, she stole the show. Riley's life though is about to get very complicated as Jacob wants her back despite her protests and even ropes Kayla into his plan to win her back. He also sees her talking to herself which brings a few more unwelcome questions and then there is her venture to save Annie which leads her into the heart of the Free Bloods Gang. Lately, Riley also has been getting some glimpses and a few bits and pieces from her dad about her mother who died when she was four. What happens though when the search for her mother sends her to an Art Gallery and Riley is left to face some answers to questions which should have been left unanswered? I am enjoying this series and as soon as I finished this book, I went to Amazon and one-clicked Book #3 as Book #2 ended on a major OMFG cliffhanger. Fans of The Ghost Whisperer will love CC Hunter's series The Morticians Daughter.




Review: Tessa - Kayla Tirrell



Tessa (Shelfbrooke Academy, #2)

Review: Tessa -  Book #2 Shelfbrooke Academy Series - Kayla Tirrell - June 2019
Wanting a YA series to read? I have been enjoying so far the Shelfbrooke Academy series as each book is a loosely based rendition of a famous classic novel/play. Tessa is based on the classic novel Tess of the D'Ubervilles. In Tessa, we meet adopted daughter Tessa Fielder who has just learned she has inherited a lot of money and is, in fact, a long-lost descendant of the D'Villes name. Tessa is then given the chance to attend Shelfbrooke Academy and is given a private room. While at the school, her first friends are both scholarship students whom she connects well with as despite the newfound wealth, she is still Tessa Fielder who was adopted and saved from a life in the Foster Care system. When she arrives at the school though, someone knows her true identity and believes that she should embrace the D'Ville name which of course isn't Tessa's intentions. She later learns that her family the D'Villes were a founding family of Shelfbrooke Academy and it has been decades since a D'Ville attended the school. Angelo St Clare is another of the wealthy families but he hates the wealth and wants to be a 'normie' and find someone who loves him for him and not his money. What happens though when he starts to fall for Tessa and vice versa, only to discover her true identity and believes that Tessa deliberately lied to him. Can Angelo get over his "crutch" and accept all parts of Tessa or will it be too late when Angelo's arch-nemesis Alex Stokes - another of the wealthy families sets his eyes on Tess for his gain.  Find out all this and more in this cutesy YA novel. Fans of Jenni James "The Jane Austen Diaries" will enjoy the Shelfbrooke Academy series.

The Treble With Men (Scorned Women's Society, #2)

Review: The Treble With Men - Book #2 The Scorned Women's Society - Piper Sheldon - April 2020
One of my favorite publishing companies lately is called Smartypants Romance where the books are all based in Penny Reid's world of Green Valley.  The Treble with Men is Book #2 in the Scorned Women's Society - we first met them in the story My Bare Lady with Suzie Samuels. The SWS is a group made up of Jethro Winston's ex-girlfriends. Kim Dae when she was younger was on her way to success with her music and her Cello. That was until one day at Band camp, one of the girls committed suicide. This started a domino effect that led to drugs and alcohol and hanging around with Jethro Winston. Years later, Kim has changed her name to Christine Day and is playing in the orchestra but she has changed her whole personality and is a shell of herself. The new music director Devlin remembers Kim from band camp when they were younger and always loved her. He is shocked to see what she is like now and during the book, pushes her to be a better Cello player. Devlin, on the other hand, wears a hat and a mask as he doesn't want anyone to know his true identity. During the rest of the book, we read as Devlin and Kim have this sizzling chemistry but the introduction to another guy Changy puts a dent in Devlin's plan. I have to admit this wasn't one of my favorite books in the series as I found the character of Kim quite a weak female and she just frustrated me right through the novel and Changy was a creepy stalkery dude that you can imagine him drugging someone because he wanted them and Devlin - seriously get over your identity, embrace who you are and freaking stand-up for yourself instead of hiding your true identity. The part that I did love was when Kim reunited with Jethro and Baby Winston and she was able to get closure about their relationship and incidents that happened back when she went rebel chick.  If you love Penny Reid's books, then check out the Smartypants Romance reads.

BEAUTY

Coffee Shop Girls, #3 by L. Moone Publication Date: March 13, 2020 Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Younger Woman, Curvy, BBW, Instalove, Romance, Novella

SYNOPSIS

A Steamy Curvy Younger Woman Instalove Romance
Megan The speed dating event at the pub has been a complete disaster right from the start. Five minutes of meaningless conversation; that isn’t the recipe for romance. I’m ready to give up all hope, when instead of me finding love, trouble finds me.
The moment Dean comes to my rescue, a switch flips in me. Perhaps tonight isn’t a complete waste after all? He’s the strong, silent type, and I’m unable to read him at all. but I’m determined to break through his walls and find out if he feels the same.
Dean All night, I’ve kept an eye on her. How could I not, when she’s the most beautiful woman in the room? Inevitably, her luscious curves turn other heads as well, and before long, a fight erupts. It feels so good to intervene; to hold her in my arms after and see the gratitude in her eyes.
But she doesn’t know who I am. She doesn’t know what I’ve done. It would be better for everyone involved if I back away now. Because the more time I spend with her, the closer I come to forgetting why I can’t give her the sort of love she deserves.
Note: this self-contained beauty and the beast themed read may end up melting not just your Kindle, but your heart as well! If you love steamy body positive romance stories featuring protective older men and a curvy younger women, this third installment in L. Moone’s Coffee Shop Girls series is going to tick all your boxes! Every book follows a different couple from the moment lightning first strikes all the way to their happily ever after. They can be read in any order, but for maximum enjoyment I suggest you start with Book 1, Fireworks.

ABOUT L. MOONE

Realistic characters, pure emotions, true passion. Everything I write is about the characters: how they interact, what’s going on in their heads, how the passionate relationship develops and affects them. I don’t believe in keeping things hidden, or dressing them up just for show. Some of my characters are potty-mouths, most of them are less than perfect (yes, even physically). I aim to write a happy ending for all of them, without keeping anything behind closed doors.

Mila
Secrets. Lies. Deception.
It’s all part of his vendetta, and so am I. He stole me, used me as one of his pawns by forcing me into a marriage I wanted no part of. I had to sign my name on the dotted line, and now he owns me…body, mind, and soul.
That’s why I ran. I had to escape the monster whose touch corrupted me. Break free from the man who seduced me, the beast who gave me a taste of the darkness.

His hands move from my face, down my arms and around my backside where he grips me tightly and lifts. I wrap my legs around his waist as one of his strong hands holds tight to my butt and the other presses against the wall.
It’s not lost on me that those sweatpants are a friggin’ delight. Men should be mandated by law to wear them every day of their lives. Without anything underneath. I feel him harden against me and I swear it’s been so long since I’ve felt wanted that the combination of his strength and kisses and erection almost send me over the edge.
Kissing to orgasm in twenty seconds flat.
That’s something to be proud of.
But this is more than kissing.
So much more.
It’s giving in to a desire that started burning a week ago when I saw him for the first time in my uncle’s bar. That only built as we spent time together. And when I left to go back to Jeff’s place, it was his face that I missed. His laughter and company.
A week is all it took for me to feel something for this man. It’s too soon for anything more than just a feeling but it’s something worthy of exploring.
And right now, I’m all about exploring.
