MY REVIEW

To be honest the whole M/M and M/F/M scene is not really my thing as such when I was approached by the author to provide a honest review I was a bit skeptical. However, I decided to move past my skepticism and give the book a try and I am so glad I did as I would have missed out on what I believe is a great start to a brand new and exciting series. I am impatiently waiting for the next book in the series.

The story flowed and was easy to follow. It was told from 3 POV's which personally for me helped me to better connect with each of the characters. I was able to understand every emotion they were experiencing. 

Rock the Viper is a very hot and sizzling read about love, jealousy and betrayal and I would recommend to readers who love this type of story.
Please don't wait too long to get your copy as you won't regret it.

ARC REVIEW OF HARVEY BY KRYSTAL SHANNAN


AUTHOR: Krystal Shannan

BLURB:

It’s just a gameright? 

Olivia Hampton never thought she’d run into the guy of her dreams at a Gaming Convention, but when Harvey MacLaughlin introduces himself a woman can’t help but notice. He’s six and a half feet of tall-dark-and-yummy. Plus, he's a gamer too. But, how do you tell the man of your dreams you decimate him at Soldier’s Call, the most popular FPS game of the year, almost every night? 

Harvey MacLaughlin was interested in Olivia the second she stepped on the plane. When he sees her again in the convention hotel, introducing himself becomes priority number one. He may have started out just looking for company, but what he finds in the beautiful Olivia Hampton may be more than he ever dreamed. 

Will a secret between them ruin their budding relationship? Or will Harvey take another path and turn the game on her? 


MY REVIEW

Harvey is the third book in the MacLaughlin family series. This book is about two complete strangers and how their love for gaming brought them together.

Olivia Hampton is a traffic reporter but what he fans and colleagues did not know was that she is a gamer at heart. She had been invited to the gaming convention in L.A which is a dream come true. Harvey MacLaughlin is also a gamer at heart and was also was invited to the gaming convention. For these two gaming was a means of relaxation. 


From the moment their paths crossed it was clear that these two were meant for each other. The attraction between them was instantaneous and it was quite clear that they were great together. They fitted each other like a perfectly fit glove.


The story was easy to follow and the characters were quite adorable. The love scenes are quite hot and sizzling and nothing was left to the imagination. 


Ms. Shannan is very adept at writing novellas. She knows just the right amount of details to include without the story appearing rushed. The entire story came together so well.


This was not my favourite of the three stories in the series; however it was still a great read. I would recommend this title for mature audiences who love short, sweet and spicy reads.

REVIEW OF COLORADO ABDUCTION


TITLE: COLORADO ABDUCTION
AUTHOR: CASSIE MILES
GENRE: ROMANTIC SUSPENSE, CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE
BUY LINK : AMAZON

BLURB:
A CITY SLICKER LIKE BURKE HAD NO BUSINESS BEING ON HER COLORADO RANCH
But Carolyn Carlisle knew she needed him. Not only was the Carlisle Ranch a target for sabotage just weeks before Christmas, but also her family had been threatened and danger lurked around every corner. Carolyn was used to being in charge, but incredibly sexy FBI agent J. D. Burke had other ideas. He was domineering, stubborn and vowed never to let an assignment turn personal. Still, with the enemy just as elusive as the agent's penetrating gaze, Carolyn secretly hoped Burke would let down his guard and act on their intense chemistry. Even if one amazing night ended up breaking her usually hardened heart.

MY REVIEW:
Colorado Abduction is about a young, sexy and brilliant CEO of Certified Cetified Organic Beef (Carolyn Carlisle) and a hot and sexy Hostage Negotiator (J.D. Burke) who was in charge of investigating the circumstances surrounding the abduction of Nicole Carlisle (Carolyn’s sister-in-law).

This was an entertaining and suspenseful read. I enjoyed this story as it had all the elements needed to make this a fantastic read. It had the right balance of romance, mystery, suspense and action. I was pulled in from the very first page. I had a hard time putting it down as it had me turning the pages as I was quite eager to find out what was going to happen next. This is a story that is filled with quite a few twists and just when I thought I had t figured out whom the villain is, Ms. Miles adds another twist which had me thinking WTH is happening here.
  
If I had to choose who is my favourite character then Carolyn would win hands down.  She is a strong willed and no nonsense individual. She was not afraid to face danger especially if it meant protecting those who are close and dear to her. From the moment she crossed paths with J. D. I could tell that they were made for each other. J.D could be arrogant; however he also had a sensitive and patient side to him.  It was clear that J.D is attracted to Carolyn but he tried to fight it as he feared that giving into his feelings would affect his ability to effectively investigate the abduction of Nicole.

My least favourite character is Sam Logan who also happens to be Carolyn’s ex-boyfriend. He disliked the Carlisle family because of their wealthy status and he hated Carolyn more because she had chosen not to marry him. It was easy to connect to the characters as they felt quite real.

This is my first time reading this author’s work and I was quite impressed.  I found this an easy read and the plot was easy to follow.  My only disappointment is the way in which the book ended. After that great build up the end was quite a letdown.  Guess I am going to have to read the remaining books in the series to get my questions answered. 


As stated earlier this is a great read and I would recommend it to lovers of romantic suspense.
