Blame it on the Vodka by Fiona Cole–New Release/Review

Blame it on the Vodka by Fiona Cole

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


This review is hard for me to write. While I loved the concept of the book and most importantly, I LOVE Fiona Cole, I had a hard time connecting with the characters/parts of the story. This may be, because I didn’t read the first books in the series, but I am not sure.
Austin and Rae are best friends who met in college. Now, years later, they are still best friends, but one side is wishing for more, while the other has a steadfast, self-imposed promise of NEVER marrying. Fast forward to being in Vegas for a friend’s wedding and apparently their own. What happens next?
I loved Austin. He fought for what he wanted and was determined to make things work. Rae on the other hand just did not connect with me. Due to situations in her past, it made it almost impossible for her to get over it.
Despite all this, the friends to lovers, secret marriage storyline, and ‘what happens in Vegas, doesn’t always stay in Vegas’ was delightful.

𝔹𝕝𝕦𝕣𝕓:

A brilliant surgeon. 

A master sculptor. 

The media touted Dr. Potter as a savior dressed in a crisp suit. 

I think he’s a vicious madman of jerk-sized proportions. 

But fate is a wicked tease. 

Only Dr. Potter can give me what I need.

A fresh start. 

A new identity. 

But he refused, leaving me to take matters into my own hands by accepting a job as his partner’s new secretary.

Dr. Potter can’t turn down my case forever.

Or at least I thought. 

Until I found him on the office floor. 

Broken. 

Angry. 

With a venomous warning… One I failed to heed.

Happy Paczki and Dr. Seuss day!!

Not only is today Paczki for the Polish, Fat Tuesday, it is also National Read Across America Day (aka Dr. Suess Day!

Paczkis. Who in this book world knows what I’m talking about? Polish Donuts are fried dough dusted in sugar and sometimes filled with jams or custards. 

So, what are paczki, and why do people stand in line all night to get these pastries?
A) They are the most heavenly fried pastry one could dream of.
B) It is just what you do if you are Polish.

Paczki (puhnch·kee) is a Polish word (already in its plural form, paczek is the singular form) meaning package. Traditionally paczki are made before the Catholic Lent holiday in preparation for Easter. Families were to use all of their sweets and butters before the religious holiday; so paczki were created. 

Dr. Seuss. What can be said about him, except that he is a prolific American children’s author, illustrator, poet, and animator. His children’s books are known worldwide. Now, which book is your favorite and why? I love ‘One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish’, as well as ‘Cat in the Hat’, but I think ‘How The Grinch Stole Christmas’ is my favorite.

Enjoy this day!

Beautiful Nightmare by Giana Darling–Review

Beautiful Nightmare (Dark Dream, #2)Beautiful Nightmare by Giana Darling
My rating: 4 of 5 stars


“I’ve made you bleed since the moment I met you, but now I’m bleeding out without you.”

Tiernan. Tiernan stole my heart. Was it the obsessive side of him? Possibly. Was it the emotional side of Tiernan that peeked through? It very well could be, but I think it’s something more. It really was the evolutionary growth between Tiernan and Bianca both individually and as a couple.

Beautiful Nightmare is so thrilling and captivating. It was full of mystery, intrigue, H-O-T encounters, secrets, and lies. Tiernan, Bianca, Brando, and ‘The Gentleman’ stole my heart. I want more!!


“He was this contradiction only my heart could decipher. A lovely monster. A beautiful nightmare.”

The Surprise Seduction by Amy Alves–Cover Reveal

The Surprise Seduction, an all-new emotional opposites-attract romance by Amy Alves is coming January 6th and we have the steamy cover!

GARRETT
Aria is young. Too young.
My little sister’s best friend is off-limits and always has been. Even if she wasn’t, the painfully beautiful woman is a shameless flirt—a free-spirited whirlwind of emotions. She shouldn’t appeal to me in the least.
I’m looking to settle down and am desperate enough to allow the meddlesome residents of Landry to set me up. Aria Davenport isn’t on their list of suitable options, I made sure of that.
Beyond our age difference and her relationship with my sister, the woman is my polar opposite.
But for one night, I give into temptation and let my need for her take over.

ARIA
After years of secretly pining for Garrett Caldwell—the grumpy and elusive hot town doctor—he finally looks my way.
Maybe it was only once, and maybe that was exactly what we agreed to, but that one scorching night ties us together for the rest of our lives.
An unexpected pregnancy changes everything and certainly has this small town talking.
Suddenly he claims to want more and I can’t keep the doubt from creeping in. Because building a relationship based on feelings of responsibility and obligation would break me.
So I guard my heart against the one man who has the power to destroy it.
