Custom Made (Fast & Fury #2) by Chantal Fernando [arc review]

Custom Made, Chantal Fernando
I thoroughly enjoy everything Chantal Fernando writes. All her books have some intrigue but are also very sweet. They truly are the perfect late night read.

Blurb:

Cameron Davies has the job she’s always wanted—designing custom motorcycles at Fast & Fury. No way is she going to screw this up. But when her wild, sexy one-night stand ends up being the shop’s new VIP client, her life is suddenly turned on its head.

Orion Stenton radiates power, danger and, most of all, sex. His lavish lifestyle is fraught with dangers for Cam—and a far too intimate link to her past. She has to keep things professional, but it’s impossible to forget the feel of him or the way he whispers her name.

The connection between them demands far more than a quick fling. But when Cam’s past puts Orion in danger, she must face her demons if she’s going to save them both.

Although I loved this one I will start by saying you really should read the other book first. Part of the reason I loved this book so much was how familiar everything and everyone was to me. Characters we've met in her previous books have a heavy contribution to the story. I imagine it would feel a little 'info dumping' and/or it would be easy to get confused if you haven't met the secondary characters before. But if you have, that is a big part of the book's charm. Seriously, I would say 80% of the reason I personally loved the book was the 'family feel' between the guys and girls at the shop and the MC, and how close I, the reader, have gotten to them all :) 

Orion was a stand up guy from beginning to end. Perfection! Yes he is rich and has been known to be a player, but when he is serious about someone he gives his all.

Cam was lovely too. Not a great past but she has overcome it and made a name for herself.

Their chemistry was on point and they had a very easy and believable relationship. It annoyed me a little bit in the end when she was so upset with him for not telling her something when her not telling him something was part of the reason he didn't take the threat as seriously as he should have (ominous I know, but I don't want to spoil it for you). That being said, that was the only part I didn't love. Everything else about the book was fab. An easy breezy 4 stars and I cannot wait for what Chantal Fernando comes out with next! Gimme more :)

Quickies, April 2021

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

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

Yes & I Love You by Roni Loren [ALC review]

It is always nice when a book surprises you. Yes & I Love You was more than the title suggests. Yes, it is certainly a romance novel, but it also deals with things most of us don't think about when talking inclusion in books. The main female character, Hollyn, has tourette syndrome and suffers panic attacks. The disease affected the character's daily life but didn't define who she was. The author, Roni Loren,  holds a master’s degree in social work and spent years as a mental health counselor, and it is clear her experiences helped her here. She represented the illness well and did a great job at demonstrating how anxiety and other daily things we take for granted made things harder for Hollyn.   Hollyn is very successful in her field. She runs a popular blog and her word is the law. If she recommends your business or entertainment it is certain it will be successful. But because of her tourettes she hides behind the screen and no one knows what the popular reviewer &qu
