"Quickies" March 2021

It has been some time since I've had to write one of these. I've read a lot of books these last two months and haven't really had the time to sit and write a long review on every single on of them. So I hope the few short lines bellow help you some. 

Thanks for reading! 


Kiss of the Highlander (Highlander #4) by Karen Marie Moning, 5 Stars

&

The Immortal Highlander (Highlander #6) by Karen Marie Moning, 4 Stars

This series is an easy "go-to" for me when I want to read something I know I will like and that won't take me forever to finish. Kiss of the Highlander has some humor while being romantic and sexy. Drustan has been "sleeping" for nearly five centuries when Gwen, literally, falls on top of him. From than on is a matter of him convincing her he is not mad and her deciding if she trusts and believes on him or not. As for The Immortal Highlander, I wouldn't recommend reading this one without having read the previous books. Adam Black is a very arrogant and full of himself fae that you can't help but love. He was punished by his queen for something he did in the previous book and no one can see him. Until he crosses path Gabriel that is. She can see him, and now he needs her help to get to his queen so she will restore him to his formal glory. 

Reaper's Property (Reapers MC #1) by Joanna Wylde, 3 Stars

I am trying to read more MC books this year, I really like them and I am happy to say this one was a good read. MCs are not for everyone, specially if they are done well. They rarely deal with characters that are in good standing with society. Marie just left an abusive relationship, and getting together with a big bad ass biker is not in her plans. Horse (yes that is his name. And yes, for 'that' reason) disagrees. When her brother steals from the club she becomes the perfect bargaining chip. Horse pays the debt, but she is his to do with whatever he wants...


Cherish Hard (Hard Play #1) by Nalini Singh, 3 Stars

Another great read by Nalini Singh. She always write great stories. I have to say though that I much prefer her paranormal books. Although this one was good it didn't excite me and at times I even found a little boring. Sailor wants to create a successful landscaping business and is solely focused on that until he meets Isa, the daughter of the company he just signed a contract with. They end up working together and getting to know each other really well. But is it meant to be? she doesn't need another workaholic in her life and Sailor needs to work hard if he is to succeed with his plans. 

Baker (Devil's Disciples MC #1), 2 Stars

This book had a promising plot. The MC robs a bank and six months later the girl whose life turned upside down because of it ends up getting a job next door. Is it coincidence? It could have been good, really good. But, it is a little offensive to brasilian woman and woman in general really. On top of that the plot is full of holes and things that don't connect. 

Heart of Steel (The Vikings MC #1), 3 Stars

Another good MC! Remi lost her dad and trying to juggle university, her dad's business, grief, and having a normal life. It is hard and she is failing. Steel does not walk in the right side of the law and although he cares for Remi and wants her to be his one of the clubs dealing messes up her life and not in a good way. Can he fix it? will she forgive him?


Blue Morning Vol. 1 to Vol. 8 by Shoko Hidaka, 3.5 Stars

I never read anything that dealt with Asian hierarchy in so much detail, and so I was intrigued and very interested through out, but at times it was a little much. The romance is heavily imbedded and has a direct correlation to the way the hierarchy and society of the time worked. It was sweet, full of drama, and frustrating all at once!

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

The Prince of Broadway (Uptown Girls #2) by Joanna Shupe

Another masterpiece by Jonna Shupe! I loved every second of this book and I am already a third into the next book in the Uptown Girls  series. The Greene sisters are a hoot and the man they fall for can do nothing but be at their mercy.  Blurb: In the second novel in Joanna Shupe's the Uptown Girl series, a ruthless casino owner bent on revenge finds his plans upended by a beautiful woman who proves to be more determined than he is—and too irresistible to deny. Powerful casino owner. Ruthless mastermind. Destroyer of men. He lives in the shadows... As the owner of the city's most exclusive casino, Clayton Madden holds the fortunes of prominent families in the palms of his hands every night. There is one particular family he burns to ruin, however, one that has escaped his grasp... until now. She is society's darling... Florence Greene is no one's fool. She knows Clayton Madden is using her to ruin her prestigious family... and she's using him right back. She plans t
