Lena's Happily Every After by Dixie Lynn Dwyer



Heat Rating

I don't think I will ever look a bottle of syrup the same way again anytime soon, I am so glad my husband was home for that one ;) Now granted I am not into more than one man (my Husband) but hot diggity does this author make it sound awesome.

Lena's life has been full of hard knocks and believe me when I tell you I am a glad I wasn't sitting next to my spouse a few times (he already ducks or moves away from me during violent TV shows lol). Again; Dixie Lee Dwyer took something that happens every day in this country and around the world and put a face on it and also added hope to it, I know a lot of woman out there do give up hope and just want to take the easy way and wish for someone to rescue them like Lena's friend Ariel, that poor girl. But not Lena, she wouldn't give up and she gave as good as she got, and for those women out there who are still fighting the good fight keep fighting and raise your daughters to be strong.

This second time around, reading this book I again had a hard time putting this book down and the other book I am reading suffered for it. The first two books in this series are equally hot, steamy and compelling and well worth the read. I look forward to reading Millie's story again and catching up with the rest of the series :)

Lena’s learned a lot living on the streets of Detroit. She’s making progress when a gang leader attempts to claim her. She fights him off then runs for her life. Lena winds up in a place called Pearl, where caring people reside and ménage relationships surround her.

The bighearted Dr. Jones convinces her to work for him. His son, Deputy Kenny Jones, thinks she’s trouble, but sparks begin to fly immediately. She meets his brothers Quinn and Blake Jones, and they are demanding and total Alpha males, too. Then she meets their estranged brother, Bryant Jones. He’s an ex-marine, filled with anger and venom as he cuts all ties with his family—until Lena comes along and takes a job caring for Bryant’s house. He’s mean and nasty but just as good looking as his brothers, and they all want her.

But trust doesn’t come easy, and soon her past calls her back to Detroit and the men refuse to let her go. Note: There is no sexual relationship or touching for titillation between or among siblings.

The Wolf Wants Curves by Arwen Rich



Heat Rating

This 5200-word book only took me maybe fifteen minutes to read so its short and sweet and good for playing catch up if you are behind in your reading challenge, that maybe all I can say that is positive not sure yet still working on the thoughts here ;)

The big icky in this book was the word 'snatch', I mean really? I see that I am think sleazy hookers or 1920's gangsters (I think they used that term in gangster movies). Sorry, that word is probably the stupidest word I have ever heard used in reference to the vagina.

And the sex scenes really didn't inspire me to go pouncing on my husband or anything, they sort of just left me bored.
