Flashback Friday – Chase Brothers Series by Lauren Dane

Ten years after the first book was published, I still found the Chase Brothers series to be every bit as enjoyable and sexy as the first few times I read it. ~ Slick, Guilty Pleasures 

FlashBack Friday
I originally planned on reviewing Giving Chase for this Flashback Friday review but once I was back in Petal, Georgia and in the bosom of the Chase family I binge re-read the whole series again. Honestly, I couldn’t just read one! Ten years after the first book was published, I still found this series to be every bit as enjoyable and sexy as the first few times I read it. I will note however that author Lauren Dane has really grown in her writing (even from the first book to the last), but I still love the Chase family and this series immensely and I hold out hope that maybe one day she’ll to a prequel and write Polly and Edward’s story because I have a feeling that would be a very entertaining story! **This series is what I would call spicy romance, there is sex but this not an erotic series.***

9748902Giving Chase

This book was interesting in that the heroine dated one brother at the beginning of this book and ended up falling in love and marrying his younger brother. History teacher Maggie Wright after dating several not right for her men including Sheriff Shane Chase (aka dumbass) agrees to date Kyle Chase, owner of a very successful landscape business. I liked that Kyle was interested in Maggie all along, but after his brother made some crucial mistakes, he didn’t swoop right in; he let Maggie get past it and then approached her carefully. Maggie had some real self esteem issues due to a horrible mother and sister (and honestly these two characters were a bit over the top), but her best friends Liv and Dee have always been by her side and Kyle was enamored from day one. I liked these two together and they complimented each other well. Maggie had to deal with Kyle’s exes making problems and Kyle had to deal with Maggie’s crappy family and a man she dated that just wouldn’t go away but through it all they fell in love and Maggie was welcomed into the Chase family with open arms making Kyle’s parents Polly and Edward very happy.

ARC Review – A Midsummer Night’s Fling (Much Ado About Love, #1) by Eliza Walker

A Midsummer’s Night Fling was a good start for new author Eliza Walker and she shows promise of great things to come. ~ Slick, Guilty Pleasures 

The show must go on, but the price of admission could be her heart.

Sick of her vagabond life in a Broadway touring company, Nicola is ready to settle down. She wants nothing more than to park her suitcase in California, put out feelers for local auditions, and leave her past firmly behind her.

Too bad her past comes knocking on her door her first day home. All six-foot-three, beautiful man of her past named Max. Stupid Max. The mistake Nicola just can’t seem to stop making.

Even before Nicola—fiery, quick-witted, beautiful Nicola—slams the door in his face, Max is in trouble. She will always be the one who got away. Three times. Which makes convincing her to play Titania to his Oberon a bit…awkward.

Though she has zero desire to re-re-rekindle an old flame, Nicola can’t turn down the chance Max is offering: a lead role with the West Coast’s premiere Shakespeare company. But when their first rehearsal kiss disintegrates into a passionate liplock, she’s questioning her sanity and tempted to jump ship—before Max can break her heart again.

Now it’s up to Max to convince her that the torch he’s been carrying is actually an eternal flame.

ARC Review – Blood & Rust (Lock & Key #4) by Cat Porter

As with all Ms. Porter’s books, the plot unfolds perfectly, the past and present mesh seamlessly to form a compelling story that stays with me long after the last page. ~ Java Girl, Guilty Pleasures 

The bad boy.
The fuck up.
The thief.

That was me.
Once a king,
Now a wanderer.

I’d thrown the best parts of me away, over and over again.
I was reckless.
Still am.
I’d been exiled.
I did my time.
I’ve cleaned up.
Well, sort of.
I got plans.
Yeah, good ones.

Then I ran into her.

A bolt of lightning
Out of reach.

The woman I once scorned years ago
is now the woman I can’t live without.
I need what I didn’t think I’d ever need again.
I want and want and want.


She’s the epicenter of the war I’ve triggered,
of the battle in my rusted heart.
I may be as reckless as I ever was,
but I’m determined as fuck.

To hell with it.

I want it all.
