Book Review – FIRE LICKED by Allison West



I enjoyed the characters of this story quite a bit, especially sexy, dominant Jules  –  but I felt the book lacked some substance.  It had a good premise, but unless they were going to get into solving the crime that occurred, that part seemed to just be off topic and more fluff or filler than anything.  I would have enjoyed it more if they had somehow been in on figuring out the mystery if it was going to be written into the book at all.

Lexa Mae has left her home in South Dakota after a break-up with her boyfriend to vacation and have some relaxing down time in New York City.  Unfortunately, it doesn’t turn out that way exactly because as soon as she checks into her hotel, chaos starts.

Jules Sinclair is drawn to the sexy woman that opens the hotel room with only a towel wrapped around her when he is ordering the evacuation of the hotel.  He takes her under his wing and gives her some clothes and a place to stay after she is left with nothing after an explosion at the hotel.  He also has to take her over his knee and teach her how to behave!

Book Review -SOME GIRLS LIE by Amy Andrews



A HOT friends-to-lovers romance that inspires you to keep believing in forever even if you hit some speed bumps along the way!  Great characters!

JJ Ericson is minding her own business, enjoying life, running her bar, lusting after her BFF from afar when a wrecking ball busts in and turns her life upside down.

Ethan Weston’s witch of an ex-wife just got remarried and declared her intent to sue for custody of their 14 year old daughter all in the same day, so he’s in the mood to tie one on and JJ has always been his soft place to fall.

The morning after, JJ’s abusive ex-husband shows up at the door wanting to reconnect and Ethan tells him to get lost after announcing they are engaged.  When they talk it out afterwards, they realize the ruse is a good one for both of them.  He can keep her safe from Shane, and she can help him win the brewing custody battle with his ex.

Being up close and personal wreaks havoc on them both and they find it impossible to keep fighting this attraction.  Will they give in and enjoy each other or will Ethan keep pining after his ex and letting forever slip past again?
