Loved this opposites attract motorcycle club setting romance

TheBallerinoAndTheBiker-400x600The Ballerino and the Biker by Rebecca James

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was a really pleasant surprise even if, at times, it felt like I’d stepped into a series that was already a few books in.

I don’t think this one is connected to anything else yet but I’m guessing all the additional details were laying foundations for the rest of the series.

Morgan and Zeke were a beautifully written pair, a study in contrasts but with a real genuine connection. Morgan’s world of ballet being so harsh and unforgiving, especially at such a young age just starting out, and Zeke’s not so perfect upbringing, gave them both levels of sympathy and understanding.

There’s a cracking good set of secondary characters and I really liked the world building. Now I’m guessing there’s going to be a book with Dante and Swish but I’m also wondering if perhaps Blaze is going to be joining that pairing or if might not have been in love with Morgan’s brother – and his best friend – the late Jake.

I can’t wait to find out and will be keeping an eye on this author.

Loved this intro to a new series from Alison Hendricks

Final Stretch (Glen Springs, #1)Final Stretch by Alison Hendricks

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Low angst, moderate steam, ranch setting, hot NFL player, ex jockey, what more could you ask for?!

For me, not much as I just like Alison Hendricks’ style of writing. This one centres around Travis, mired in a scandal and with a broken heart after the guy he was going to propose to leaks a sex tape.

I loved Travis, he was strong in character but with a vulnerability which came from never knowing anything but football. His relationship with his older brother was strained but you could sense within him the desire to make changes.

Shane also was flawed and his experiences had changed him in a different way, he was cautious and held back a bit but he held such passion inside.

Together they were just beautifully sweet and I’m looking forward to more in this setting.

Oh and the big gesture Shane makes – awesome.
