Feature and Giveaway: What Happens in Texas by Carolyn Brown


Carolyn Brown brings her unique voice to this tale of twin sisters finding love in a small Texas town

Cathy Andrews’s biological clock has passed the ticking stage and is dangerously close to “blown plumb up”. While her twin sister Marty thinks settling down with one man is just a waste of good cowboys, Cathy wants it all: the perfect husband, the baby, and a little house right there in Cadillac. But even as the town is laying bets on whose wedding will be next, Cathy doesn’t see happily-ever-after happening anytime soon.

Fortunately, Cathy and Marty have best friends who aren’t afraid to stir up a ruckus—and if it means Cathy’s got to bust out and set the town on its ear they’ll back her up—no matter how hot things get.

ARC Review: Glass Ceilings by A.M. Madden


I read a lot of really enthusiastic reviews of this book. This is not one of those. For me it was a good, solid read but something was missing for me. I think something about the connetion between the main characters didn't connect for me and it threw off the whole experience.

There is actually a lot that I liked about this book which is why I still gave it a good rating. I liked the danger aspects. I liked that this book included suspense, a crazy ex, the mob, some good supporting characters and a host of other positive things. By way of background, this is the second entry of the True Heroes series. I didn't read the first book so I can't tell you if there are any spoilers but I can tell you that you can read this one as a standalone.

Nick is an undercover FBI agent in Chicago collecting information to close down a major drug operation of the mob. As his investigation nears completion, he meets the elusive Angela. When Nick meets Angela, he is already gone on to his next assignment in New York in his mind. He wasn't anticipating starting something right here in Chicago. Angela is the shy good girl who comes into the bar where Nick is working undercover and instantly grabs his attention. Angela makes it clearly she is not interested in starting a relationship but thanks to Nick and Angela's sidekick/friends, they continuously are thrust together.

The issue for me is that I honestly enjoyed Nick and Angela's friends more than I enjoyed them. There seems to be more chemistry and fun banter between The supporting cast members than there was between the main characters. I found the parts of the story that had supporting characters in it more interesting than the parts that were just Nick and Angela.

Even though Nick doesn't think it's fair to start anything with Angela in light of the fact that he's leaving for New York, it turns out, rather conveniently, that Angela is also headed to New York. We also find out that Angela is avoiding an abusive ex-boyfriend. I like the fact that Nick and Angela gave it a go and that things were complicated and difficult because of issues from the past. I think the complications in the romance were the best part of the book for me. It gave the story layers that it just would not have had if things had been easy.

So all in all this book was entertaining and interesting. The only issue is that the things I really liked did not include the romance which I found kind of tepid.

ARC Review: The Dom Games by Rachel Robinson


This is my first book by this author. I’ve heard a lot of really great things about her and I can see how I might love some of her other books. For one reason, however, I didn’t love this one. My ‘we can only be friends, not lovers’ reason is Kayla.

The premise of this book was intriguing to me. A game show with a dom trying to find a sub. Yup, that’s all I really needed to know, I was in. I knew almost right away there was going to be a problem. Kayla applies to be on the show and is chosen by the shows owner (who is also starring in this season) because she is so non-submissive. But THAT’S the problem. Kayla wanted to be on the show for money but she wasn’t interested in the lifestyle at all.

That wasn’t what really annoyed me thought. What really irritated me was that Kayla didn’t even really try. She really wants the money that comes from winning the show but she shuns everything about the lifestyle she is supposed to be excelling at. I’ve read some books about bad submissives but that isn’t what happened here. Kayla just wasn’t a sub….at all. The more the book went on, the more Kayla annoyed me. Her aversion to the lifestyle (that she signed up for!) started to come across as bitchiness and I just wasn’t here for it.

The other thing that I found annoying about this book was the Hero, Dominic. Ok, I just….it was a bad trip. He is supposed to be this big bad Dom but he lets Kayla get away with ridiculous behavior while pining for her. And oh yeah, while he is pining for her, he is screwing every other woman on the show in every imaginable way. After a certain point, I was just disgusted by the whole deal.

When Kayla starts to develop feeling for Dom, I was like ‘oh c’mon.’ I just didn’t get the connection between these characters. The fact that Dominic reciprocated Kayla’s feelings diminished him in my eyes. There are some things I can’ tell you because I don’t want to spoil the book but by the end I was just over Kayla and Dom.

This book gets three stars from me because the writing is good, the plot was super original and there is some HAWT sex in the book. If I was just judging this book on the characters, it would probably be two stars less than I’m giving it. Take that however you take it but here’s a word of advice. If you are really into the BDSM erotic romance scene, this book might be disappointing for you.
