It's Monday and it's my turn to blog. It feels all wrong??? LOL
More Than Meets The Ink by Elle Aycart
Wickedly sexy James Bowen is a bad boy of the highest order -- tattoos and
attitude included -- which unfortunately ranks way up on Tate's
not-a-chance-in-hell list, right there along with skydiving naked over Teheran
and juggling Ebola vials just for kicks. But what the heck, she's on holiday,
the guy is absolutely irresistible, and she needs to unplug from her life. With
her dad and brother gone, Tate is left to deal with the family restaurant, which
is fast going down the drain. Her employees are acting out, her boyfriend has
bailed out, and her very own private stalker is emailing her to death with
lovely threats of doom, fire, and dismemberment. So yeah, maybe a little holiday
fling is in order. Strictly sex though, and no follow-up whatsoever once.
hadn't counted on her take-charge holiday fling having an opinion of his own and
stubbornly sticking around, before and after the sex, making himself at home in
her life. There is definitely more to James than meets her prejudiced eye, and
even if she's not ready to look deeper, James isn't
prepared to permit her not
Liked the book but was not a fan of Tate at first. Really? You're going to judge a hot man by his tattoos? What planet are you from? I understand you're hesitancy but considering what you have pierced...hellloooo! LOL Good thing I can cover all mine or she would think I was an ex con. As the story moved on I respect Tate for taking care of business herself. It's hard to ask for help especially in her situation after her father and brother's death. This is a short story so I won't give anything away but let me tell you if those were long time employees that treated her with such disrespect she needed to fire them a long time ago. my feelings are if they knew her father and brother they should want to help keep the restaurant afloat. Maybe that's just me being raised right. As for James I love when a man thinks it's just sex and gets hooked! HA!
I give this book 3 chocolate dipped strawberries and a room at the Holiday Inn!
Heavy Issues by Elle Aycart
Steering clear of relationships has never been difficult for demolitions
expert Cole Bowen, but now, with his brother's engagement sending the female
population into full-blown hysterics and the town of Alden's month-long
festivities helping along, he finds himself in hell. When he discovers Alden's
new resident and the object of all his wet dreams, Christine Sheridan, has sworn
off relationships and is going to hire a gigolo to get professionally laid, he
decides to kill two birds with one stone.
Christy is so not drinking again.
Thanks to José Cuervo she has her friends signing her up for stud conventions
and Cole frigging Bowen offering sex in exchange of fake dates, which is so out
of the question it isn't even funny. She knows the domineering man will push her
boundaries, and after battling all her life with self-esteem issues, she isn't
ready for that. Too bad he won't take no for an answer.
Cole is determined to
strip away all of her defenses but refuses to lower his ever-present walls, so
when Christy realizes she wants more, she's left with only two options; walk
away or crack his shield and risk her heart in the process.
Got to love it when Tyra and I share a brain (it's when Sid and I share a brain you want to watch out). I was thinking how much I love the Chase brothers series and how this series is heading into my re-read list quickly as well. First of all Cole blows stuff up for a living. It doesn't get any cooler than that! As far as drinking with the girls...that never ends well and you never know what you'll or they will get you into. She obviously has nerves of steel to tolerate all the gossip of a small town and to deal with Cole period. I have to cut Cole some slack he doesn't give up when he knows what he wants.
I give this book 4 chocolate dipped strawberries and I will share a piece of the best advice I've ever got...Boys are stupid. Throw rocks at them. LOL That advice changed my life. Thanks Tina:)
