Dates With K…

Happily Ever After One 'Date' At A Time.



K’s Review: Renegade by Laramie Briscoe

****4 ‘Pew Pew’s & Propositions’ STARS****

I’ve made a pretty consistent effort this year to read books by new-to-me authors as often as I can and Laramie Briscoe is one of them.  This engaging story of learning to love and let go and live wasn’t at all what I expected.  A little bit of a guide to actually working on a Moonshine Task Force, crushing on your best friends older sister and learning to let go of old hurts and live the happy in the ‘now’ this is not your typical younger man/older woman love story.

“Somewhere in this ordinary life that we’ve been sharing, our fairytale started.  It wasn’t with a glass slipper, or some extremely monumental event in our lives.”

K’s Review: Under Fire by Aria Cole

****4.5 ‘Put This Fire Out’ STARS****

Illicit, dirty and oh so sweet, Aria Cole’s next chapter in the Blue Collar Alphas Series will set your panties on fire!  But don’t worry, she’s got just the sexy, dirty talking firefighter to put out the flames – or stoke them higher…depends on how you look at it…

“Blaise wanted me.

Blaise was the real deal.

Blaise was the very thing I needed and hadn’t even known I wanted.”

K’s Review: Beautifully Broken by Em Frances

****4.5 ‘I’m Coming Home’ STARS****

I purposely chose this book because the storyline isn’t one I usually enjoy.  I’m not generally a fan of overly promiscuous characters seeking physical escape with no feelings – male or female.  I don’t judge and anyone is free to have any kind of consensual sexual relationship they choose, but this theme normally doesn’t click with me.  However, I do like to be challenged in my reading and I consider it a success when the author can bring me around to relating in some way to the character(s) and becoming invested in the outcome.  Em Frances did both and more.

“One of these days I was going to have to stop being a runner.  But today was not that day.”

K’s Review: The Coppersmith Farmhouse by Devney Perry

*****5++ ‘Home is Where the Heart Is’ STARS*****

Like a beautiful breath of fresh air, Devney Perry’s debut showcases exactly why I started devouring indie titles in search of the elusive ‘something more’.  That something that makes your breath hitch and your heart beat a little faster.  That invests you in the journey and makes you race to the next page at the same time you’re doing everything you can to prolong the exquisite feeling of book nirvana by slowing down. I found it here…It. Is. Bliss.  Strong, well developed characters – primary and secondary, developed and believable storylines, exceptional pacing, special attention to detail (or lack thereof when needed), steaming hot attraction and most importantly, I fell in love.  With a town, a couple, an adorable kid, a farmhouse and the possibilities laid out for the continuing series that I will absolutely continue reading.

“I would never get the chance to tell Ben how much his farmhouse changed my life.”

K’s Review: Sweet Rivalry by K. Bromberg

***3 ‘Anything You Can Do, I Can Do Better’ STARS***

Two rivals.  One endgame.  Uncontrollable desire.  Uncomfortable truths.  There’s only one winner in this competition and these two rivals both believe they’re the only logical choice.  Wrapped up in a enemies to lovers tale the lines blur and winning depends what game you’re playing.

“We have a history that counts for something with me.  But at the end of the day, Harper, I have every intention of being the one who comes out on top.”

K’s Review: Lucky by Carina Adams

*****5++ ‘How Long Do I Have You’ STARS*****

The last book I read by Carina Adams ripped my heart out.  I saw it coming, hated what was going to happen but understood the lesson, the feeling she was showing me was important and I ultimately adored it for that reason.  When I opened Lucky I knew this would be a departure from her usual gut-wrenching tale and was intrigued.  In her author’s note Carina declares that, ‘A light and fluffy read may not change lives.  It may not make your view change.   But, they are a great escape.  That is what I wanted Lucky to be.’  It was a great escape, phenomenal really; however, I’m going to respectfully disagree with the rest of her statement.  Here’s why…important lessons are found in laughter just as they are in pain, love as they are in suffering.  And maybe, just maybe, the point isn’t that this book needs to change the world…just one heart or two at a time and that not all lessons have to hurt to be meaningful.

“You can’t stop the inevitable, and the sun always rises.”

K’s Review: The Wright Brother by KA Linde

****4 ‘The Wright Way’ STARS****

Sassy women, caring alpha’s, outrageous loving family members and crazy ex’s you can’t get away from, KA Linde’s tale of two brothers caught up in one woman had a little bit of everything wrapped up in love – Texas style.

“I was an average girl, and he was a gorgeous Texas billionaire.  He could have anyone he wanted, he’d picked me.”
