Breaking Her Rules


Jennifer Snow has a knock-out on her hands here!

I really enjoyed this book! From the first couple of sentences of Chapter one, you are intrigued and drawn in to see what’s going on as Grace and Walker’s story starts to unfold. Grace is a MMA Fight Promoter in Las Vegas, and when her best friend Kylie calls her up needing a favor, she of course can’t say no. So what if she’s three weeks away from ending her lease and moving in with her boyfriend Erik, she still agrees to let Kylie’s big brother Walker crash on her couch until she moves.

Walker has just dropped out of law school to move to Las Vegas to take up MMA fighting full time and his disapproving father has cut off his trust fund, so he’s broke. Sparks start to fly as the old crush Grace had on him in school flares up and Walker finally notices she’s alive. Read the book to find out if their attraction will win out or if she will still be moving in with that boyfriend in a few weeks, and to see if Walker can pull off the first big fight of his career.

Preserving Family Recipes


This book called out to me when I saw the cover and read the title. I am one of “those people” that has boxes of recipes from my Mom that need to be organized. I have the ones I truly treasure at this point, of being without her for over 9 years, that were written by hand. Just seeing that old familiar handwriting can take you back in time with just a glance. Then of course are the ones she cut out of magazines thinking to try someday.

In reading this book, I got some really good ideas on preserving the recipes, in particular her hand written ones, and some good points of how to showcase them. Some choose the recipe boxes, other binders that can be easily reorganized, and then others photo albums, etc.

I enjoyed the preservation and display info, and I enjoyed the writers stories throughout of her grandparents and parents through recipes that meant a lot to her. I did feel like there was a lot of filler in the latter chapters. I got the most personally out of Chapters 1 through 3 and Chapter 7.

They’re both convinced they are having a hot fling just while he’s in town, but will they be able to walk away? Read the book to find out the ups and downs of devotion to family, the heartache and guilt over loss, and the utter joy that the simple things can bring.

I couldn’t put it down!

Exciting read!

The book grabs your attention from the very first page and doesn’t let go until the end. It starts out with a shoot out in Ava’s lab where she is the only employee left standing, then the gunman turns the gun on her. At the last minute she’s rescued by Max, who vows to keep her safe.

Last of the Red Hot Riders


My first trip to Hell, TX …

And I really liked it! 🙂

I hadn’t read the previous book, so I wasn’t familiar with the characters at all. At first getting them all down pat was slow, and I found myself going back and starting the book all over once I hit Chapter 3, because it still felt cloudy to me. Once I re-read through Chapters 1 & 2 and got a good handle on who was who, I really enjoyed the book. Cameron & Saint were great characters and I was right there rooting for them the whole time. Look forward to visiting Hell, TX again! 😉

REVIEW: Wild Heat

Wild Heat


Caitlin (Kitty) Grant flees California to move back home to small town Alaska life. She’s a broken bird, escaping an abusive ex-husband, and just trying to find herself again. Her long lost best friend Tack picks up the pieces and shows her how to live again as their friendship redevelops and blossoms into more. The cultural and town history was a little heavy for me in the first part of the book, but once Kitty and Tack are settling in as friends again, their story comes to the forefront and has you lost in following their every move to see what will happen. A nice read!
