Book Review: Roping The Virgin by Alexa Riley


Roping The Virgin (Cowboys & Virgins, #2)
Blake Jennings has always wanted what his parents had: a sweet, simple love that lasts a lifetime. And when he meets Luciana, he knows she’s the one.

Luciana Salazar comes from a tight-knit family that pushes her to follow her dreams. When she takes a job on the Braided Rope Ranch, the last thing she expects is to fall in love with its owner, the dark-haired man she’s seen watching her in town.

Roping the Virgin is over-the-top sweet, with a heaping scoop of sexy steam. Blake sweeps his Luciana off her feet and gives her the life she’s always dreamed of.

Warning: Ridiculous is almost close enough to describe this irresistible short story. Come back to the Jennings farm and pull up a rocking chair. You’ll like the way they treat you


Welcome back to the Jennings Ranch, where the family members fall hard and fast for their one true love. It’s Blake’s turn to find his Insta-Love, who also happens to be the perfect addition to their family.

Luciana Salazar has been given the opportunity to complete her clinical hours at the Braided Rope Ranch.  She wants her veterinarian specialty to be in large farm animals and cattle. It couldn’t be a better match except that she’ll have to be away from her family.

Blake Jennings has been scoping out Luciana for months. He has found his true love. He’s tried to make small talk when he sees her in town but has no luck. When Blake finds out that Luciana will be working on the family ranch he goes all alpha and insists that she move in with him. He will not have it any other way. Now the question is will she feel the same way.

Another short, crazy insta-love story. I love that we head back to the Jennings family ranch to catch up with the family. Luciana is the perfect addition, she takes what she wants and it’s hot. There are still two more crazy siblings with secrets. I can’t wait for Trace’s story. I know it’s going to be good!  And Dolly, who knows what she's up to! 4 Stars!

Do you choose your dream job—or the guy you’ve always wanted?

Three years ago Hannah met a sexy surfer while on vacation in Westport, WA.  After a whirlwind summer romance, he ghosts. She’s tried to move on, but no other guy has ever measured up.  And now she comes face to face with him on the first day of her new internship.  To make matters worse, he’s one of her managers, and he has no idea who she is.

Matt’s tired of being the third wheel around his friends, especially when he was the only one who ever wanted a girlfriend. And then Hannah Glover shows back up in his life—the girl who simultaneously made him want a relationship and ruined him for anyone else without him even realizing it.  He wants her now more than ever, but she doesn’t trust him after the way he ended things before.  Which should be fine since he’s her manager at his first job out of college, and their company has a strict no fraternization policy.  But Matt just can’t seem to help himself where she’s concerned.  And she won’t be an intern forever, right?  

Will he be able to convince Hannah to give them another shot?  Or will their past and their present conspire to keep them apart?

Willa sighed and headed to the door.

Again Keane held the pink bedazzled cat carrier, which should have made him look ridiculous. Instead it somehow upped his testosterone levels. His sharp eyes were on her but they turned warm in a way that melted her right through her center as she moved toward him. She stopped with the glass door between them, hands on hips, hoping she looked irritated even if that wasn’t quite what she was feeling.

His gaze lowered from her face to run over her body, which gave her another unwelcome rush of heat. Dammit. Now she was irritated and aroused—not a good combo.

His mouth quirked at the saying on her apron that read Dear Santa, I Can Explain.

Drawing a deep breath, she opened the door. “You’ve got Petunia again. I hope that means your great-aunt Sally isn’t still sick.”

He looked surprised that she’d remembered his aunt’s name, or that she’d care. “I don’t know,” he said a little gruffly. “She left me a message saying that I was in charge for the rest of the week but for two days now Pita’s been happily destroying my jobsite. I’m throwing myself on your mercy here. Can you help?”

Wow. He must be really desperate since he was actually asking and not assuming. But since Petunia was a sweetheart, she knew she’d do it.

“I’ll even tell you where I went to high school,” he said, adding a smile that was shockingly charming.

Wow. He hadn’t lost his touch when it came to turning it on. “Not necessary,” she said, painfully aware of their audience.

Keane’s attention was suddenly directed upward, just above her head. She followed his line of sight and found a sprig of mistletoe hanging from the overhead display of small portable doggy pools. Mistletoe? What the hell? She glanced behind her and what do you know, suddenly Rory and Cara were a flurry of movement racing around looking very, very busy. “When did the mistletoe go up?” she asked them. “And why?”

“FOMO,” Cara said from behind the counter.

“Fear of missing out,” Rory translated. “She was hoping a hot guy would come in and the mistletoe would give her an excuse.”

Willa narrowed her eyes and her two soon-to-be-dead employees scattered again.

“Interesting,” Keane said, looking amused.

“I’m not kissing you.”

His mouth curved. “If you take Pita for the day, I’ll kiss you.”

“Not necessary,” she said, gratified no one could see her heart during the two-step in her ears. “I’ll take Petunia for the day. No kiss required or wanted.”

Liar, liar

Book Review: The Trouble with Mistletoe by Jill Shalvis

The Trouble with Mistletoe (Heartbreaker Bay, #2)
If she has her way ...

Willa Davis is wrangling puppies when Keane Winters stalks into her pet shop with frustration in his chocolate-brown eyes and a pink bedazzled cat carrier in his hand. He needs a kitty sitter, stat. But the last thing Willa needs is to rescue a guy who doesn’t even remember her ...

He’ll get nothing but coal in his stocking.

Saddled with his great-aunt’s Feline from Hell, Keane is desperate to leave her in someone else’s capable hands. But in spite of the fact that he’s sure he’s never seen the drop-dead-gorgeous pet shop owner before, she seems to be mad at him ...

Unless he tempers “naughty” with a special kind of nice ...

Willa can’t deny that Keane’s changed since high school: he’s less arrogant, for one thing—but can she trust him not to break her heart again? It’s time to throw a coin in the fountain, make a Christmas wish—and let the mistletoe do its work ...

I really enjoyed The Trouble with Mistletoe. It's a sweet, heart warming, second chance love story. Anytime I see a new Jill Shalvis book I become giddy with excitement. I love her soul-reflecting style.

Willa Davis grew up in the foster system, since she's become an independent woman. She owns her own shop, she found her own tight knit family of friends and has taken in other foster girls who've aged out of the system. What Willa has given up on is men after last bad judgement call.

Keane Winters desperately needs a cat sister. He ends up at South Bark Mutt Shop and finds Willa. What Keane doesn't remember is that Willa had asked him to the Sadie Hawkins dance in high school. Willa hasn't forgotten because Keane stood her up. Although Willa wanted to turn him away but she didn't because she's a good person with a big heart. 

Willa has a hard time fighting off their chemistry, the "Animal Magnetism" between them. Willa soon discovers a very different Keane. They both struggled from lack of affection they didn't receive from their families. They struggle accepting their worthiness. Can they move past their hurt? To think, it all started with a cat who needed a home just like her cat sitter Keane. 5 Stars!
