The Cowboy Next Door (Montana Strong #2) by R.C. Ryan [arc review]

Hello Hello sunnies! Don't you just love discovering new authors? I most certainly do :) 
R.C. Ryan, I am your new fan!
A huge thanks to the Read Forever Team for providing me with a copy of this book.
Here is the Blurb:
Penny Cash is down on her luck. Her dream is to become a teacher, but finding a school with an open position is proving to be difficult. In need of money, Penny accepts a job as a housekeeper at the Monroe Ranch. She's not one to shy away from hard work, but Penny didn't realize how tough it would be to resist the sexy cowboy who's now her boss.
Bad boy Sam Monroe has no intention of ever getting tied down. But from the moment Penny begins working at the ranch, there's nothing he enjoys more than getting under her skin. And before too long, he finds himself flirting with forever. So when Penny's little brother comes to town and gets involved with the wrong people, Sam will stop at nothing to protect the woman he's coming to love--and the family she holds dear. 

The review: 5 Stars

Overall I thought the book was simply put: sweet. It had this feel good vibe to it that would make you smile constantly. Yes, there was some tension there, specially towards the end, but overall it was just a nice and 'feel good' book. 
The whole family dynamics just added to the 'feel good' vibe. I absolutely adored Mac and his whole family. Sam and his brothers found in Mac and his ranch family bonds that are stronger than blood. The whole background story was just beautiful and really touching. 

But, lets talk about the 'main event'- Mac and Penny! They were both great characters and perfect for each other. Both their pasts has made them who they are today and they need a bit of what the other has to offer. Penny needs some more laughter and Sam needs to open up a little more. Amazing couple. 


And for those who have not read the first book in the series- do not fret. I had NO idea this was the second book even AFTER I finished it. I only realized there was a first book when I went to copy the blurb for this one and saw in big letters Montana Strong #2. In other words: #imblind but also #bookperfection

I read a good amount of older releases this past two months. I will not write long individual reviews for every single one of them but here are is a little bit about each one of them:  - Visions of Heat by Nalini Singh It's unlikely I will ever dislike something Nalini writes. She is a master of her craft. This is the second book in the Psy-Changeling series and it is just as good as the first. Shy and isolated Faith is plagued by visions of blood and murder. She has questions and needs help but can't ask those around her. She turns to the changelings and the only Psy she knows that has defied her race (first book in the series). Vaughn is more cat than human but has to control his instincts not to scare Faith away. This was a fabulous paranormal romance read but you really must read the first book first! 4 stars from me :)  - Desperate Measures by Katee Robert Desperate Measures is the story of Jafar and Jasmine. But if you read Katee before you know it is not that simple at

Fortune Favors the Duke (The Cambridge Brothers #1) by Kristin Vayden [arc review]

@glimpses_of_my_books Oh the beauty that is discovering new authors! Kristin Vayden is someone I had not heard of before Fortune Favors the Duke  was announced and Sourcebooks told me she is local to Washington State. I am planning a signing event with her and Lucy Gilmore this December at  Inkling Bookshop  and of-course I had to read the book ahead of time.  Fortune Favors the Duke  was utterly adorable! I managed to read this beauty in two sittings and I will be reading the other books in the series. Blurb: Quinton Errington is perfectly happy teaching at Cambridge, with his elder brother carrying the duties of being the Duke of Wesley. But when a trip to celebrate Wesley's last week of bachelorhood ends in tragedy, Quinton, who becomes the Duke of Wesley, would give anything to have his brother back. Now, under the most heartbreaking circumstances, Wesley's would-be bride, Catherine Greatheart, is left wanting. Her only protection left, her grandmother, has fallen ill, an

A Touch of Darkness (Hades & Persephone #1) by Scarlett St. Clair

I knew very little going into this book except that it had my current favorite bad boy in it: Hades! Seriously though, I have a "hades tbr" at the moment, it's a thing. And if you know any good Hades based romances do tell me. Always and forever looking for more. Hades, the God of the Dead was phenomenal. I have ZERO complaints about his character. There was more to the underworld than known by other gods and humans, and the same is true about the man that runs the place. He is to the point and although not always up front and straight forward he is always honest and true. He has built a gambling empire but his bets are not always monetary and they are known for being impossible.  Persephone was very much still learning who she really was. Up until meeting Hades and for some time after she has no power of her own. Plants die at her touch and that is that. She is also known as the goddess of spring, but that is not because of who she is but rather because of who her mother
