Off the Ice

Off the Ice (Hat Trick #1) 

My Review:

Tristan is a professional ice hockey player, but he still wants a backup plan. During the off-season, he has decided to return to education, and finish his business degree. He's hoping to keep his head down and blend into college life. What he didn't expect was his hot gay professor.

Sebastian is focused on his career he can't afford any distractions. A little eye candy during his lectures is okay as long as it stays at that. He can't date a student, but when schools out Tristan may just be too much temptation.

This is a Male/Male romance novel with ex-rated scenes and a little ice hockey. The story is realistic and an easy read. 4 stars out of 5.

My Review:

Jordan has run out of gas. She has found the petrol station but maybe not the gas. She is out riding her bike but now is stuck in Oregon sleeping rough.
The hot gas station owner may just be the answer to all her problems.

Rocklyn Ryder is the queen of hot short romances. This one is no different. Good story with some hot lovin'.

The Shameless Hour

The Shameless Hour (The Ivy Years #4) 

My Review: ♥ ♥

What a sweetie! Rafe is the perfect good guy. He speaks two languages (Spanish and American) which is always hot. He may not be a hockey player, but he is still drop dead gorgeous. Bella is the player in this book and the unattainable. She doesn't do relationships just friends with benefits.

After a rough night, Rafe finds himself in need of a friend. Bella is one of his dorm neighbours. She's charming, funny and a real beauty. After some sweet talking by Bella, they do the horizontal tango. It gets a little awkward after. Rafe likes to be in a committed relationship, and it isn't Bella's style, but when she needs him he's there. They get partnered together on a project that means a lot to Rafe. For the first time, Bella finds something more than hockey.

Bella is the hockey teams go to girl. She orders the supplies and looks after her players. She sleeps, eats, and breathes hockey. She is a big fan of sex and isn't ashamed of it. If you have read The Understatement of the year you will have already had a glimpse into Bella's life. Graham was her favourite player, but unfortunately, things didn't work out. Her failed relationships have left her guarded. One night stands or friends with benefits are easier. That is until it all goes wrong.

The Shameless Hour had me gripped at every word. It isn't all puppies and flowers. The events that happen in this book are shocking and the way Bella handles them shows how strong a person she is. With a little help from Rafe and a new friend, she can achieve anything.

The family dynamics of this book were interesting too. The rich girl that should have everything and the poor boy who has the love only a family can give. Rafe is a sweet mamas boy and Bella is hardly talking to her family. I also loved the reversed roles. She's the non-relationship one.

I haven't read The Ivy years in the correct sequence so unfortunately, this is my last one. I love Sarina Bowen's books and I'm so sad this series is over for me. The reason I've read these books out of order is due to opportunity. If you sign up to the author's emails she likes to put different books on special offers every so often. I bought book 5 at reduced rates. It's probably better to read these in order but not essential.

The shameless hour is an easy 5-stars out of 5. I have so much love for this book. It is probably better not to read this book in public you may just have a hot flush ;).

Glitter and Sparkle

Glitter and Sparkle (Glitter and Sparkle #1) 

My Review: ♥ ♥

Glitter and sparkle is Lauren's life. She likes to glamourise projects and make videos for her blog. It's her senior year and Lauren has her life plan all set out but what she didn't factor the unknown variables. Harrison was her brother's high school friend who moved away. He's a little older than her but that doesn't make him mature. Lauren and Harrison have a love/hate relationship. They get under each other's skin and can't help taking pleasure in it. Harrison moves in with Lauren's family while he gets settled back into town. The room he's staying in is Lauren's craft workshop. She has been demoted to the garage. As if her senior year wasn't complicated enough she now has Harrison to keep her on her toes. Everyone loves him. Everyone but Lauren.

This book has some good giggles and the writing style kept me interested. 4 stars out of 5. This is a kindle unlimited read.

Fearless ♥ Blog Tour ♥ Giveaway ♥


♥ Synopsis

In exactly twenty-three days, Gryphon will offer his life to Chief Barnabas in exchange for the lives of his best friend and mess brothers. Until then, he must keep his plans from Zo while avoiding the Wolves of the Allied Camp. But Gryphon is not the only one harboring secrets. To spare her own life, Zo has made a blood oath promising to help the Kodiak Clan free their families living as Nameless slaves. When Gryphon learns the truth — that the peaceful life he’d planned for Zo is not secure — he divulges a secret that will give the Allies the upper hand against the Ram.

Now, The Great Move is underway and a final battle between the Wolf, Ram, Kodiak and Raven cannot be stopped. Strength will be tested. Loyalties will be questioned. Alliances will form. In a world of uncertainty and danger, Zo and Gryphon may finally have what they’ve each always wanted.

With her degree in History and Secondary Education, Jennifer had every intention of teaching teens to love George Washington and appreciate the finer points of ancient battle stratagem. (Seriously, she’s obsessed with ancient warfare.) However, life had different plans in store when the writing began. As a proud member of Writers Cubed, and a co-founder of the Teen Author Boot Camp, she feels blessed to be able to fulfill both her ambition to work with teens as well as write Young Adult fiction.

Jennifer has three children who are experts at naming her characters, one loving, supportive husband, a dog with little-man syndrome, and three chickens (of whom she is secretly afraid).

My Review: ♥ ♥

Fearless is the conclusion to the Nameless series. It is not a standalone story; you need to read book One (Nameless) and Two (Clanless). The action, romance and twists stepped up a notch in this one. The author explores how 2 people from different walks of life can fit into a world that doesn't welcome their connection. The problem is that Gryphon's time is running out! He is a man of his word even if he has lost his honour. Meanwhile, someone is trying to frame Gryphon for crimes he did not commit. He needs to find a way to get the wolf clan to trust him, and find his place even if it's for a short time. His goal is to make sure Joshua his young apprentice is settling in and set up for a good quality life.

Zo has a blood oath to honour and has a duty to help save the Nameless. Gryphon hasn't been completely honest with her, and she isn't aware of their deadline. Fearless explores their ups and downs. Can a Ram really be trusted even if it's Gryphon? Zo has to learn to trust Gryphon all over again.

Can the clan's find peace? Can Zo and Gryphon find their happily ever after?

Fearless was probably my favourite of the 3 books, but I have enjoyed the whole series. There is the main story along with smaller side stories. The characters are well developed and have good motives for their actions. Both Zo and Gryphon have their own stories throughout the book as well as a story together. Highly recommended. 5 stars out of 5.
