This feature is for short reviews, reviews of books in a series where it might feel repetitive, or (as Michelle suggested) books I was too lazy to write a “real” review for. Today’s books are definitely ones I was too lazy to write reviews for. But they were good and deserve to be shared!

A risk worth taking…

No one would ever accuse Jace Berisha of having an easy life—considering her husband…you know…killed her. But that was then! Now she fights for mighty Viking gods with the spectacular and vicious Crows.

But things are turning very bad, very quickly because a vengeful, ancient goddess has come into the world with just one thing on her mind—ending it. And the only way they can hope to stop her is if the Crows join forces with their one-time enemies, the Protectors. A Viking Clan created to do nothing but kill every Crow they see.

Thankfully, Protector Ski Eriksen is a peace loving kind of guy. Because the woman he is desperately trying to get close to is the beautiful and not-very-chatty Jace. Battling Nordic clans? Unkillable goddesses? Jace’s mean-spirited dog? None of these things would ever get in the way of a true Viking!

This series is just too funny! It’s action packed, sassy, and has lots of great romance. I’m so glad I’ve discovered Shelley Laurenston. Johanna Parker is a fantastic narrator that really brings the humor and sass to the fore.

Just a Few Books I loved but never reviewedSecond Chance Summer by Jill Shalvis
Genres: Contemporary, Romance
Pages: 369
Format: eBook
Source: Purchased


Cedar Ridge, Colorado, is famous for crisp mountain air, clear blue skies, and pine-scented breezes. And it's the last place Lily Danville wants to be. But she needs a job, and there's an opening at the hottest resort in her hometown. What has her concerned is the other hot property in Cedar Ridge: Aidan Kincaid-firefighter, rescue worker, and heartbreaker. She never could resist that devastating smile . . .

The Kincaid brothers are as rough and rugged as the Rocky Mountains they call home. Aidan has always done things his own way, by his own rules. And never has he regretted anything more than letting Lily walk out of his life ten years ago. If anyone has ever been in need of rescuing, she has. What she needs more than anything are long hikes, slow dances, and sizzling kisses. But that can only happen if he can get her to give Cedar Ridge-and this bad boy-a second chance . . .

I just love second chance romances and this one did not let me down. The characters were fantastic, the romance was hot, and their was even some tension & fear to boot! Jill Shalvis is quickly becoming a favorite author!

Just a Few Books I loved but never reviewedThe Fairest of Them All by Cathy Maxwell
Published by Avon on May 31st 2016
Genres: Historical, Romance
Pages: 384

In New York Times bestselling author Cathy Maxwell’s glittering new series, wedding bells are ringing…but which Whitridge twin is the right groom?

The penniless orphan of a disreputable earl, Lady Charlene Blanchard thrives on the adventure of picking the pockets of unsavory gentlemen to survive. But due to her extraordinary beauty and prized bloodlines, she is hand-chosen as a potential bride for the Duke of Baynton, who is on the hunt for a suitable wife to provide heirs. All Char has to do is act the part she was born to play and charm a duke she’s never laid eyes on into proposing. Except the duke turns out to be the tall, dark and sexy stranger who just caught her red-handed as a thief! 

Or is he? Jack Whitridge is the duke’s twin who had “gone missing” over ten years ago. Now back in England, he knows that the supposed Lady who has his brother’s love is hardly duchess material—except he needs her to save his adopted country from war. He is willing to bargain with her heart, until he finds himself falling for Char . . . 

I’ve been a fan of Cathy Maxwell’s for a while now, so I wasn’t surprised when I loved this series too. Still need to read the final book, but so far, so good. I just love that Lady Charlene is a pickpocket, disguising herself as a boy to survive. I always love women disguising themselves in HR books, so that was a definite plus. And the romance was quite good, especially with Charlaine getting caught red-handed by the love interest. So great!
