A fabulous frenemies to lovers foodie romance

57431907._SY475_On a Roll by Beth Bolden

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the third book in Beth’s excellent Food Truck Warriors series and it’s my favourite one so far.

The tension between Gabe and Sean is palpable and they come together and fight like two mating stags, raging and expecting the other to back down.

However, as the story progresses, the reader becomes aware of Sean’s reason for his truck’s name and at once sympathies begin to twist and turn and Gabe’s determination not to change his seems less important and more just stubbornness.

Of course, Gabe doesn’t know the reason, because Sean’s just as big a stubborn donkey as Gabe is and there were times while I was reading this (once I again I beta read for Beth) that I wanted to bash both their heads together and tell them to grow up!

It’s very clear though that they both need something from the other and if they could only get over themselves and actually talk about the situation, a compromise could be found.

Tony gets involved in the stirring and forces them to work together, in turn prompting the heart to heart both have really needed and then setting them on the path to happiness.

Full of all the foodie love this author is known for, On A Roll is beautifully paced, steamy and sweet.

Hunter and Derek are at a fork in the road…

At their friend Justin’s funeral, once-best-friends Derek and Hunter meet again almost four years after their monumental falling out. Hunter kissed Derek, and Derek freaked out and chose a college on the other side of the country.

If they had a choice, both of them would walk away and never see the other again. Except Justin has given them a mission: an epic road trip to scatter his ashes all over the Midwest, complete with cryptic notes, new friends, and a whole lot of sexual tension.

Can Derek and Hunter finish Justin’s road trip without ripping each other’s heads—or clothes—off?

Loved this shifter romance

Wake Me Up Inside (Mates, #1)Wake Me Up Inside by Cardeno C.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was brilliant. I’m not normally a big fan of shifter stories as they usually have the whole insta love thing which tends to irritate me.

Instead, what I got here was a cleverly constructed world of paranormal with specific rights and rituals which was organically delivered throughout the story and never given as an info dump.

I loved the fact this book takes place over an almost 30 year period and that there was plenty of relationship development between the two MCs.

The mystery plot never too over and there were a great bunch of secondary characters who added depth to the world setting without taking over.

Sexual tensions were kept at high throughout and the scene where Zev and Jonah finally have full penetrative sex was ridiculously hot as were all their encounters.

Lovely start to this series with enough plot hooks left for further exploration of this world. Beautiful cover too.

ETA: Anyone else have the Evanescence song running through their head or was that just me? 😀
