Drifter (Commander in Briefs #3) by Kristy Marie [arc review]

This was my first read by Kristy Marie and it will not be the last. I am already looking into the other books in the series. Drifter was funny, romantic, entertaining, touching... it had all the things needed to make a fabulous contemporary romance. I won't be surprise if this book makes into my favorite list in the end of the year. And since we are still in January, I would say that says a lot about the book hey?!

Drifter, Kristy Marie
Here is the Blurb:
Bianca

Pretty things don’t distract me. In my line of work, a distraction will get you caught. Or in my case, blackmailed. But this isn’t the only time I’ve been hustled, and soon Connor Hayes will learn that men are only pawns in my end game. I don’t love. I hate. Even a pretty boy like him. 

Hayes

Two wrongs don’t make a right. Except when they are five-foot-seven and hotter than my exhaust pipe. So, I blackmailed her. It was either that or turn her in. And if anyone was going to put her in handcuffs, it was going to be me. Bianca Morgan stole the only woman I’ve ever loved. It’s only fair she replace her.

The Review: 5+ Stars

Both main characters were outstanding. 
Bianca may have her demons, but they don't slow her down. She is doing the best she can out of a bad situation and what she does in the end is nothing short of amazing. She is the most noble and loyal thief -yup, you read that right- that I've come across. Specially in romance. 

Hayes has a fun and outgoing personality and a lot of charm. His backstory was heartbreaking and his care and attention for Bianca and her mother were heart melting and swoon worthy. These characteristics are definitely another reason you should believe me when I say the book was amazing: since when do I like nice boys on my books? *insert eye roll here* LOL (disclaimer for the newbies- I married the softest man to ever walk the earth, I need variety. My book boyfriends need to be moody and broody 🤣)

Anywho... the banter between them was at times sexy and flirty, other times sweet. And at all times it showed how perfect they are for each other. They pushed each other to be better people. 

On a somewhat unrelated note- I didn't really like the guy on the cover. HOWEVER, now that I have finished the book that is exactly how I would picture Hayes. Perfect cover model choice!

The Last Tiara by M.J. Rose

The Last Tiara  by M.J. Rose is inspired by a real missing Russian Crown Jewel. She explains in an article to The Adventurine  how she stumbled upon an NPR article about the disappearance of missing Russian Crown Jewels that to date, have not been found. Captivated by it and how such amazing items could simply disappear she decides her new novel will tell the story of the lost tiara.  It is apparent throughout the book that M.J. Rose researched well the Romanov Jewels, the Russian Evolution, and especially the impact it had on the Russian people. Although she never goes into details, the poverty and difficulties the people experienced at the time are carefully and respectfully mentioned.  The book is told from two different perspectives, that of mother and daughter. The alternating chapters reveal Sofiya's life in Russia from 1915 through 1922, and Isobelle's in 1948 Manhattan, US. First we have Isabelle, an young architect in post World War II Manhattan . While renovating her

How to Catch a Duke (Rogues to Riches #6) by Grace Burrowes [ALC review]

How to Catch a Duke, Grace Burrowes I've been waiting for this book for sometime. Lord Stephen Wentworth's past was mentioned many times in previous books and I was hoping Grace Burrowes would give him a happy ending. After everything he went through in life he most certainly deserved it.  As book opening goes, the one to How to Catch a Duke  had me dying of curiosity instantly: "I have come to ask you to kill me, my lord." Miss Abigail Abbott is no damsel in distress, but she also knows when she can't handle an enemy on her own. She believes the only solution to her problems is to disappear and she trusts Lord Stephen will help her. Lord Stephen is a juxtaposition... charming and brutish, sad and happy, caring and ruthless, the most intelligent and most clueless... Although you don't have to have read any of the previous books in this series to enjoy this one, I would advise you to do so. I think Stephen's personality traits and past will be more touching
