Audiobook Review: And One Last Thing... by Molly Harper

For the longest time I was afraid to read And One Last Thing... by Molly Harper, I have been reading her paranormal stuff and loved it. Seriously, LOVED her stuff. However, I was a little afraid that I wasn't going to like this story, because it didn't have vampires or werewolves. A true fear, so I kept this far from my mind. I have basically have done all the Half-Moon Hallows books, I even tried Naked Werewolves books, and I started the Mystic Bayou books. So, I was running out of options to read/listen to Molly Harper. I decided to take a chance. So, fearful on what going to happen, which I shouldn't have. I started the story and I was hooked. Seriously HOOKED! I had so much fun with And One Last Thing.... Who would have guess?

Anyway, I absolutely loved Lacey Terwillirger. At first she's kind of down trodden, and doesn't know how to pick up the pieces of her life. However, it's amazing what she can do when you are stuck in a cabin and your only neighbor is a recluse cranky man. Basically, she rebuilding her life, and rediscovers who she is in the long run. It takes some trials and errors. It was fun watching her fumble along the way. I love that she learns to live with out her cheating ex. It's fun to see her interaction with Monroe, the recluse neighbor. They are a hoot together.

Overall, I was worry for nothing with And One Last Thing..., seriously I had fun. I laugh, and tried not get choked up, because I was out in public while listening to this story. I was thinking Sammy the Shark needs her own story and a love life, I mean it would be interesting after all she's a divorce lawyer. Great time. So much so that I had to listen to the story again. Also Amanda Ronconi does a super job.

Hunting Danger by Katie Reus (Review)

We finally get Gage and Nova together in Hunting Danger. They have been skirting around one another for the past four books. However, I think it was worth the wait. Possibly this is best book so far. we still have one more to get to. Anyway, we have action and danger lurking through this story. Lite on the romance, but it's kind of a romance budding when you are in emanate danger. Also the obvious reason, can't fall for a co-worker, because what if it goes south fear.

Basically, Nova's friend is in danger, and Nova wants to rush off to save her all by herself. Fortunately, she has friends looking out for her otherwise it would have gone down hill fast. Gage has the hots for her, but doesn't feel that he's good enough for Nova. Why take a chance when you feel that she's out of your league. Anyway, they take a trip to Montana to save the friend, of course it doesn't go as plan, and this is where the story gets a little more interesting.

Yes, Hunting Danger does pick up the suspense a little more once they get to Montana and being chase by the bad guys. Nova and Gage have there fee issues, because of work, and feeling unworthy for the other. We have it all cleaned up towards the end, but we also have a little teaser of the ultimate plot that has been going on for sometime. Overall, Hunting Danger is probably favorite of the series. I liked Nova and Gage's story.

The Governess Game by Tessa Dare (Review)

The Governess Game was a pretty good read. I did enjoy this story a lot, but The Duchess Deal was way better. Don't get me wrong this was a fantastic read, and Tessa Dare does an amazing job with the banter between these two. However, I think the stars of this book would have be Rosamund and Daisy along with Daisy's doll Millicent. Seriously, that was hilarious. They would have a funeral everyday for Millicent. That was too much, but so good. However, Chase took it like a chance. He was given guardianship over Rosamund and Daisy, and he's trying to make it through until they can send them away to school after all he's a horrible example of a guardian. He stumbles upon Alexandra Mountbatten who he mistaken as the governess.

Chase basically believes he found the perfect governess, but slowly finds out he was totally wrong. However, he's stuck with her, and her unorthodox ways of teaching. Again, she's not a governess, but a clock tuner. Chase basically has closed off his heart to everything, so Alex is going to break through his wall.

Yes, The Governess Game is like your typical aristocrat wanting the governess story. At the same time there are little quirks that make it a little different. For instance, the death of Millicent. I'm telling you that's hilarious, the ways she dies. We see deep down that Chase has a heart, but is fearful of letting it out. After all bad happens when he's suppose to care. Overall, The Governess Game is a pretty good read. I had a good time, and I can't wait for of this series. So, if aristocrats and governess are your thing, you are going to enjoy The Governess Game.

Audiobook Review: Accidental Sire by Molly Harper

I actually listened to Accidental Sire a few months ago, and I'm just getting to writing my review. I'm guessing this is the end of the Half-Moon Hollow books, because I'm not sure who else needs a story. I guess Molly could write side stories for the characters. Who knows what is going to happen, but I'm pretty sure this is the end.

So, we finally get a story for adorkable Ben Overby, who thought his life wouldn't be mixed up with vampires after he was dumped by Gigi. I guess he was wrong. Meagan Keene was "accidentally" killed in thrilling ultimate frisbee throwing contest. Anyway, she accidentally bites Ben and turns him with just a bite. Now they have to learn to live with one another and get past the issue that Meagan turned Ben.

I loved Accidental Sire. I love both Meagan and Ben. I think my favorite is Meagan, because she feels so alone. At times in the story, she does. A lot of her issues stem from being put in the foster care system. When Ben learns more about her past, he kind of feels bad for the way he treated her, but at the same time he's trying to cope with being turned himself. Each of them have learning and growing in this story. Along with that, they are trying to stay hidden from some crazed person.

Accidental Sire is one of my favorite in the series. If this book is the end of the series, I'm glad that it end on a high note. Also Amanda Ronconi does amazing job with this story. Especially Georgie's part. Yes, we get to see a lot more Georgie in here, and her and Meagan have a special bond. Overall, loved this story. I laughed, cried, and was over joy when it all worked out for Ben and Meagan.

Blogger Shame Review Challenge 2018: Waking Up With a Billionaire by Katie Lane


We finally have tackled another book that has been my TBR pile forever. YAY!!!! I'm glad I have finished Waking Up With a Billionaire, because it now completes the series. I would recommend not reading this story as a standalone. There are a few things that happen in the previous books that come back in Waking Up With a Billionaire, epecially Chloe's past. Other than that this was book was a pretty good read. I did enjoy Chloe and Grayson's interaction.

Audiobook Review: Better Homes and Hauntings by Molly Harper


YAY! I have tackled another Blogger Shame book. However, I kind of cheated here, I ended up buying the audiobook and it was good thing. Seriously, I would have given up on Better Homes and Hauntings a long time ago. It's not a bad story, but there's a lot going on in the story. SOOOO much going on, and at times it was a bit overwhelming. So, had I read this book and tried to keep up with what was going on, I would have thrown in the towel. So, I had an Audible book credit, and need of a book I decided to give this one a shot. I'm glad I did, otherwise this would be sitting my shelf for even longer.

One wrong move, and she meets a guy with all the right ones…

Talia Dalton lives her life on cruise control. Despite her successful career as a professor, she prefers protecting her broken heart to taking chances. She’s calm, cool, collected, and steady. Until the morning she takes her eyes off that familiar road and almost runs over the sexiest man she’s ever seen. It may not be the best way to start the day, but it might be the type of shake-up she needs.

Male dancer Derek Grant has goals, and nothing is going to get in the way of achieving them. As a graduate student and the sole caretaker of his ailing father, he hasn’t much time for relationships. Then Talia crashes into his life. Sweet, pretty—and so buttoned-up that he can’t wait to help her cut loose.

For Derek, falling in love was a beautiful accident waiting to happen. And it might be exactly what Talia needs—if she’s willing to let go of the past and embrace every surprise Derek has to offer.

I'm flirting with my forever…she just doesn't know it yet.

Blurb

He’s a Wall Street wolf. She’s been hired to tame him. From New York Times bestselling author Lauren Layne comes a wildly sexy novel of business and pleasure.
Twenty-eight and filthy rich, Matt Cannon is the youngest broker on Wall Street. He may be a “boy wonder,” but he’s every inch a man. Ask any woman—any night. But when Matt’s latest fling makes scandalous headlines, his clients get anxious, and his bosses at Wolfe Investments level an ultimatum: keep his assets zipped, get a “real” girlfriend, and clean up his act. Only one woman can help Matt with something this hard.
For PR genius Sabrina Cross, the best fixer in Manhattan, playing Matt’s steady is going to be a challenge, even if it’s just for show. They already have an explosive history, she can’t stand the cocky party boy, and worse—she can’t stop thinking about him. So who’ll dare to break her “no touching” rule first? Because when that happens, Matt and Sabrina’s game of let’s pretend will get so hot it could set both their reputations on fire.
 “Layne can always be counted on to create an engaging, steamy, and thoroughly rewarding reading experience.” —RT Book Reviews
