Wind River Rancher by Lindsay McKenna

I received this book from Netgalley. This story gives an in depth peek into Vets with PTSD. It's emotional, heartbreaking and hopeful. Shay hiring the Vets to help them get their lives back is inspiring, watching the struggles to change and heal is tough. Reese and Shay help each other overcome so much while they build a relationship and fall in love. This is such a great story, I only wish real life could be like this for all Vets.

The Adventures of Natalie Bloom by Brooke Stanton

This book was gifted to me. This has so many twists and turns, as soon as you start to believe something, you start having doubts. This isn't so of much a romantic story as it is a try figure out who did what story. By then end of the book Natalie has all your sympathy. Because really everyone else has left you disgusted or disappointed. And while the storyline leaves your head spinning, it is entertaining.

Sin City Billionaire Book 1 by Charlotte Byrd

This book was gifted to me. This is the first book of this series and ends with what could be a HEA . There isn't much about Sebastian that is likable so far. Jane is naive and a little weak. But the storyline is off to a good start and has potential, the sex is really hot between Sebastian and Jane and their conversations with themselves are interesting. The coffee at the bar scene was funny and the scene with Charlie was entertaining. I'm looking forward to seeing what comes next.

Protective by Daisy Grace

This book was gifted to me. This is a dramatic and entertaining story with very stubborn and emotional main characters. It explores the behind the scenes crazy of the modeling industry, and the issues that being a celebrity cause. For the most part I liked Jake and Acacia, hated Elaine and disliked Acacia's father. It wasn't a great book, but it was decent.

Home Run Holiday by Declan Rhodes

This book was gifted to me. This is a good storyline, it's very sweet and entertaining. But I could never be friends with any of these guys, they act like 13 year old girls. Individually they are great guys, but get 2 or more together and it's embarrassing. I did like the book, except when there was a conversation it was sort of romantic. This author could write really good stories if he could write the characters as adults.

Triple Trouble by Cari Quinn

This book was gifted to me. Very hot, sexy and sweet. This is also romantic, engrossing and entertaining with a little humor. I love how this is a love story, it's not just about the sex, it's about falling in love. Tristan can be a bit of a jerk, he's just more intense than Juliet and Randy, who are more relaxed about life in general. This book definitely belongs on your TBR list, it's just that great.

The Rockstar's Christmas Reunion by Heather Hiestand

This book was gifted to me. This is romantic, intriguing, and engrossing. Bax and Yakima make a very sweet couple. Bax inspires sympathy and disgust, he's funny but oblivious. Yakima is very upbeat and strong. The names of the characters names were different, some were inspired, some were atrocious. The characters are all interesting, the families are unique. The storyline is interesting and entertaining. I highly recommend this book and I would love to read stories about Dare, Niall and Haldana.

Jingle Boots by Em Petrova

This book was gifted to me. This is a steamy, sexy, sweet and entertaining story. Em has a way of making all of her characters very likable, including this book. Cutter is sweet, sexy and charming. Veronica is stubborn and sweet. There is drama and angst, fun and laughs and lots of hot sex. There is nothing to not like about any of Ems books.

The Billionaire Bad Boy Club by Michelle Love

This book was gifted to me. This is so full of drama, trauma, twists and really messed up people. Nic falling in love with Natasha is about the only predictable thing in the story, and some stuff catches you completely off guard. It's so engrossing it draws you into the story a little at a time until you can't put it down, you have to find out what could possibly come next. It has some BDSM in it, but mostly it's the tragic story of Natasha.

The Sweetest Sin by Kelly Boyce

I received this book from Reading Deals. This sweet, touching, engrossing, dramatic, romantic and funny with interesting and entertaining characters. The storyline is heartwarming. Alex and Hen and Maggie are emotionally damaged souls who need love to live, not just survive. Alex is quite funny when he gets stunned stupid upon seeing Hen after so many years. Too bad the more Hen knows about him, the more she dislikes him. This is an engaging, fun and entertaining story that grabs your attention from the first page and keeps you hooked until literally the last page. A must add to your TBR list.

Ex Games by Stella Rhys

This book was gifted to me. This is full of drama, romance, angst, humor and sorrow. Mason is a real a**hat in the beginning, he puts Taylor through hell. Taylor is drowning in grief and confusion when Mason comes to make a deal with her. The sexual tension between them is amusing, she's in denial and he's trying to be a nice guy, something he doesn't have much experience with. I found the storyline fascinating and the story engrossing. I was completely into the story and couldn't put the book down. Mason and Taylor's relationship is very entertaining.

Their problem is trying to remain strictly professional. Riley is down to earth, easy going and charming, unless he's around Savanna. Savanna is calm and cool, unless she's around Riley. I enjoyed watching their relationship develop. The most fascinating character is Owen. The rest of the family members are very personable.

Forbbiden Obsession by Savannah Blake

I enjoyed reading it and will read more books by this author. I did have an issue with some words being used that shouldn't have been to stay true to the era, like bathroom and girlfriend. Other than that it was well written and fun.

Another Chance by Kathy Clark

I received this book from Netgalley. This has some very interesting twists to it, and a couple of shocks. Watching Luke and Bella trying to reconnect without getting reattached is heartbreaking. The terrorists added some suspense to the storyline, but made Bella look very naive for this day and age. And Luke was such a sweetheart for not telling her that. This has action, drama, humor, love and Grammy. I highly recommend the series.

The Billionaires's Gift by Michelle Love

This book was gifted to me. This book is simply written with simple characters and at times overly dramatic. I like the storyline of Blaine becoming a better person, he's charming and romantic, but the way he finds God again is over the top. And Delaney has a weak character and no willpower. Some conversations make the characters involved sound like petty teenagers. So all in all, I loved the concept, not so much the execution.
