This Chick Read: Revealed to Him (Kerr Chronicles #3) by Jen Frederick

My first impression is, ok, I like this authors style of writing. The characters are unique, the mystery had a good hook, and these two characters were emotionally involved.  Good stuff! Did I care I started in the middle of the series? Nah!

Natalie is agoraphobic. She has made some money writing a video game so she can afford to hole up safely in her own home. However, she is not comfortable with her psychosis. She desperately wants to get better! But just as she starts to make progress, she is threatened by a stalker which sends her into a tailspin and her agoraphobia rears its ugly head. Her cousin, a famous pro quarterback with relationship issues (future book?), hires a private investigator to try to help Natalie find the person who is threatening her. Jake Tanner. The name Jake always brings to mind tall dark and handsome doesn’t it? Private investigator Jake Tanner definitely fits the bill. Our Jake is a vet who lost his limbs in a bomb blast over seas. He wears prosthetics on one leg and one arm. When they first make contact, Natalie and Jake have an instant connection. Yet, she’s agoraphobic and although he seems pretty well adjusted, he does have some psychological hang ups associated with his loss of limbs. This love story deals with all of these psychoses, solves a mystery and packs an emotional punch. I was really interested in their story and rooted for their hea.

I liked how Jen Frederick dealt with these serious psychological issues, while the characters were falling in love. There was no hesitation from either party about their feelings about the other person. All of their hang ups were in their own head, and I found that fascinating. I have already got book one on my kindle ready to go -thank you kindle unlimited. I hope that book can live up to my expectations, this one certainly set the bar. ❤❤❤❤❣

This Chick Read: Break Out (Dark Desires #1) by Nina Croft 

Synopsis: Two thousand year old vampire Ricardo Sanchez won’t take no for an answer. Irreverent, insatiable, and utterly irresistible, Rico lives for no one but himself…  there’s more romance verbiage, so I thought I was picking up a paranormal romance.  I mean, wouldn’t you? Boy, was I in for a surprise!  A good one though! This book, the first in a series about the suave devil/vampire you read about above, and his FLIGHT CREW.  Yes, you read that right. Break Out is about Rico, the space vampire!  I have to giggle a little at that sentence. Continue reading “This Chick Read: Break Out (Dark Desires #1) by Nina Croft “

This Chick is joining the Take Control of your TBR Challenge! (Week 1) #TakeControlTBR

I saw this blog post on the Caffeinated Book Reviewers blog and had to join up!!  In the month of March the challenge is to reduce your TBR pile. Read any book published before March 01 2017 and then log them into her website. I am joining at current count, almost 50 other random bloggers and friends of Kimberly’s. Fun!

There are a few rules I must follow:

  • I can’t include any novellas, all books must be over  100 pages.
  • Begins midnight March 01 2017 and ends March 31, 2017 ( I’m late getting started I know! Luckily I’m a fast reader!)
  • Post a review to Goodreads or on my blog and then link to rafflecopter to win prizes.  Yes, prizes!!  Watch out folks, I am pretty competitive! Lol. 😏
  • Use #TakeControlTBR
  • Post updates and results on my blog
  • Read, read, read!

Considering I have 183 books on my kindle, belong to the Uppercase monthly Book Club and am about 6 months behind on reading those books AND I have a stack of other books I’ve bought, I think I have a good stash to choose from. ☺️

A sample snapshot of my kindle loaded with unread books!

Goals: I’m going to keep it simple. My goal is to read 12 books this month off of my TBR list. I do have a couple of ARC commitments I have to get to that won’t count against this tally since the books don’t come out this month, but I think I can get to twelve.

First up is This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab.

Wish me luck and if you have the reading stamina, join up!  I love a good competition! Come on, let’s read! What’s your first book?



This Chick Read: Make Me Sin (Bad Habit #2) by J. T. Geissinger

We watched Chloe and A.J. exhibit their hatred for each other in the first Bad Habit novel, Sweet as Sin, so knowing this was an enemies to lovers trope (not my favorite) I had been putting off reading this book. It started off very quickly and I was soon immersed in A. J. and Chloe’s gritty love story.   Continue reading “This Chick Read: Make Me Sin (Bad Habit #2) by J. T. Geissinger”

This Chick Read: Lost in Her by Sandra Owens

As I was reading Lost in Her, I was reminded of reading Harlequin and Silhouette romances as a teenager in California.  This was a sweet tale with a somewhat naive heroine who meets a man who isn’t ready to commit due to a personal tragedy.  Sandra Owens, the author, did a good job of inserting Continue reading “This Chick Read: Lost in Her by Sandra Owens”
