Lacybourne manor is the third book in the Ghost and Reincarnation series but each book can be read as a standalone. I’m a big, big fan of Kristen Ashley and I really love this series. In this book you don’t only get a great alpha man and a curvy and softhearted woman but also a witch and a ghost. What more can you wish for?
Like in many books of Kristen Ashley there are some great side characters in the story. They make you smile, they make you sad. They make you feel many thing throughout the story. I love that very much.
I must confess that the only reason that I read this book was because I really love this author's writing. And althought I didn't know what to expect of this book, I liked it.
I really liked the way how she writes about Vivica.
The only thing that I wish for, is that I could read more about Nicholas/Vivica thoughts. But I think that my wish will come true in the second book (Killer queen).
My friend, Karin, really loved this book and couldn't stop talking about it, so of course I was very curieus about this book. And just like my friend, Karin, I really loved it!! It was a while since I read this sort of book. But I loved every moment of it.
Brishen, a Kai prince most marry a Gauri noblewomen to seal a treat between both races. Ildiko always knew that it was her fate to marry for politics. Luckily for both, there's an instant understanding between them. Althought they look different like night and day, both want this marriage to work. So they decided to be honest with each other. And that's what made me love this book so very much. The relationship between them was so wonderful and lovely. The writer really takes her times to let the relationship grow between Brishen and Ildiko. What is more wonderful then two lonely people finding love and understanding with each other?
I can't wait to read the next book!
I didn’t know what to expect from this book. I’m not big fan from survival game shows but I really enjoyed this book. It is about a survival game show, of course but it is so much more. And at the end I thought it was a great idea to write a book series about these TV game shows.
I found Dean and Abby a cute couple. I enjoyed their relationship. First the ‘fighting’ and then the way how they grow to each other.
I really love Jessica Clare her books and this book was no exception. The story wasn’t long but still it’s very good written. Because it isn’t long, everything happens fast but not too fast.
I had fun reading this story and I’m already reading the next book in this series.
It’s free so what are you waiting for!?!
This book is about the TV show, Ice dancing with the stars. Zara Pritchard was once a Olympic darling but she was very young and she made a terrible mistake. A mistake that not only made her lose her chance for a Olympic medal but also made her an outcast. So now she gives ice skate lessons at the local mall. But then she’s offered the chance of her life. One of the professional ice skaters of the TV show, Ice Dancing with the Stars, is pregnant so they’re looking for a replacement. Would Zara be interested?! Yes, she is!! This is the chance she is been waiting for. And she’s terminated to win this game.
But there’s just a little problem that’s standing in her way and that’s her celebrity partner TY Randall aka ‘Ty the MMA biter’.
Ty Randall is a MMA fighter and the last thing he wants to do is participate on some stupid skating TV show but his manager doesn’t give him much choice. After his last game where he has bitten in the other guy’s nose, his image has been damaged.
So now his plan is to do this thing and get away as soon as possible. But he didn’t counted on his partner who really wants to win this game. So you can imagine they don’t really make a good start when they meet. And the first couple of days sparks are flying around between them but then something happens and they make a truce. And then other sparks are flying around, more of the sensual sort. But is it a good idea to start something with your partner? That’s a big NO in sports but it’s very hard when you live together in a the same house and work together.
And what about the competition? Will this help their carriers?
Just like the first book in this series. I really enjoyed myself. It’s not a very long story but that’s what I personally like about this series. And I love the little interviews, confessions from the man pov that we read at the beginning of each chapter.
I love Kristen Ashley her books. Every time I have a dip or I don’t know what to read next I always read a book from Kristen Ashley. Because she has never disappointed me and that was the same with this book. An alpha man, a woman who loves him but who isn’t afraid to tell when he’s wrong. A bunch of friends and a lovely family. I love it and I hope that she will soon write Luci and Hap their story ! I can’t wait to read it.
The hooker and the hermit is the first book that is writing by the writers L.H. Cosway and Penny Reid together. And I can tell you it calls for more books from this duo. I was already a big fan from L.H. Cosway but this was the first time I have read something from Penny Reid but it will not be the last time!!
Annie Catrel (= the hermit) is a woman whose life consists of her job at Davidson & Croft Media as a social media expert and her secret hobby as a celebrity blogger aka ‘The Socialmedialite’. Annie lives her life behind the computer, unlike her real life that is lonely but safe, her virtual life is filled with friends (although she has never spoken or seen one of them in real life!) and excitement. But that’s the way Annie likes it.
But that’s about to change. One day at work she meets the hot Irish rugby player Ronan Fitzpatrick (= the hooker) for the second time (only he doesn’t know that) . Ronan Fitzpatrick has had a bad time, first he discover his fiancée having sex with one of his teammates, then he lost his temper and fought with this teammate during a game. So now he’s suspended from the team! His plan is now to come to Manhattan (away from the scandal in Ireland) and live a quiet life while working on his condition untill he gets back on the team. But that’s hard with the paparazzi lurking around and now someone called ‘The socialmedialite’ is blogging about him!! Ronan is so angry about this that he decides to send this blogger an angry email.
But his management think that it’s about time for Ronan to reshape his public image, so they send him to Davidson & Croft to do that. This is where he meets Annie for the first time (or so he thinks!). He feels an instant attraction to her. He likes it that she’s shy and a little different than other women he knows. So when her boss suggests that Annie will work with him he couldn’t be happier. That’s the opposite about how Annie feels about this news. But her boss leaves her no other choice.
So here starts the work relationship between the two of them. A relationship that Ronan hopes will change in a love relationship but this could be hard. Because not only is Annie shy and a little bit antisocial, she also has had a difficult childhood. Something that made her decide to stay far away from love. And what Ronan also doesn’t know is that the person he sends emails to, the person he knows as ‘The sociamedialite’ is Annie! So you see there is a lot going on in this story and then you also have Roman’s mother and his ex-fiancée who aren’t happy with this relationship!!
Like I said before, I didn’t know what to expect from this book, since it was the first time that these writers wrote a book together but I can tell you now that I just fell in love with this book! I love the humor in this book, the emails, the twitters (or twatters like Ronan likes to say). I really hope that L.H. Cosway and Penny Reid will write another book together. Fingers crossed!
I love reading books about the mafia but it’s not always easy finding great books. But I can say that I totally loved this book!!
Welcome in the world of the Mob, where men are tough, where killing is the way of life and where marrying is not a matter of love but a matter of business. A way for the family to acquire power or a way to bring peace between two Mob families. Aria Scuderi was born in the Mob family from Chicago. When she was fifteen years old her father told her that she would marry Luca – The Vice – Vitiello. The oldest son of the head of the New York family to bring peace between the two families. Now three years later, the day has come that Aria has dreaded for so long. Her marriage to Luca Vitiello.
Luca Vitiello may be handsome and wealthy and for the outside world he is described as the perfect catch but Aria knows better. As the ‘heir’ of the New York mob family, Luca is the most cold-hearted and deadliest man of New York. She knows that he has no problem with killing a man or torture him. For him it’s all part of business.
The only way that Aria can get out of this marriage is through dead or eloping. But where would she go? Where could she hide from these dangerous men? And what will happen with her family is she elope? Is her freedom worth a war between the two Mob families?
No, Aria don’t think her freedom is worth a war so she decides to go through with the marriage, with a little hope in her heart that maybe she and her new husband can find an understanding in their marriage. And just when she thinks that her marriage and her husband have a chance, she discovers something that make her doubt everything.
In this dangerous world were you can’t trust anybody, love can be a dangerous emotion!
If you’re looking for a sweet romance, don’t read this book. The Mob world is a dark place, where men are cold and dangerous and where love has no place. I love Mob stories and I really loved this one. There happened something in this book that I usually don’t like but here I can understand why Luca did it. In his world it is their way of life. I didn’t like it but I can follow his logic about it.
I loved this story so much that I went straight from this book into the next one.
