My favourite in this series and possibly my favourite Vicki character in Kye!

orange moon ebookSlow Dances Under an Orange Moon by V.L. Locey

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Easily my favourite in this series from Vicki and Kye is possibly my favourite character from her too, beating out even the awesomeness of Victor Kalinksi 😂

Kye is just so deliciously single minded and just the right side of arrogant to push all my buttons and I loved how dedicated he was to getting his man back.

This book also took me down a twisty path I hadn’t expected which just added another layer of excellent storytelling.

Davy was a fine man too, I liked that he had lots of stored up anger with Kye that needed to be worked out.

A fabulous set of supporting characters and a whole bunch of hilarious wildlife extras made this book a joyous reading experience.

Annabeth triumphs with this first in a new series about hotshot firefighters

49897760._SY475_Burn Zone by Annabeth Albert

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What a fabulous start to this new series from Annabeth.

It combines the camaraderie of her Out of Uniform series with the small town vibe of her Rainbow Cove books and I loved it.

Lincoln needed a shake or a good talking too so he got his head out of his backside but I totally got him.

Jacob is an honest and direct guy, he wants Linc, always has. But his dead brother’s ghost hangs over them both.

There’s angst, but it never becomes overwrought, Linc is struggling with his own feelings for Jacob and guilt about his best friend’s death.

I loved how Annabeth wound their relationship around the Smokejumper team’s first season following Wyatt’s death and how they tried to come to terms with his little brother taking his spot.

The chemistry between them is incendiary, touched with a sense of the forbidden, as Linc does his best to push Jacob away.

With danger on the edges constantly, this is a romance rollercoaster that ultimately leads to an explosive finish.

Grab it if you love hard-headed men with a soft centre and a feeling of family among a group of men who literally put their lives in each other’s hands.

Classic Ed, this has spicy and sweet in a perfect combination

Changed Hart (Harts Bay #2)Changed Hart by E. Davies

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is classic Ed Davies, it has an almost perfect mixture of sweet and spicy.

I’ve not gone for full marks in my rating only because, for me anyways, I found I was wishing Colt was just a little bit older so that I could fully embrace the whole sexual domination aspect.

That’s not to say that there is a need for an age limit to know what you want in the bedroom, or on the sofa 😉 and they definitely had loads of chemistry.

But Colt’s vulnerability in the rest of his life and his leftover anxieties and fears because of his history gave me pause when it came to this one element.

Ed certainly never made the narrative feel uncomfortable or silly, Rain and Colt just worked as a partnership as friends right from the off and I ultimately got with the programme as their relationship developed. YMMV.

The rest of the story was right up my alley though. I really like this new setting and the small town vibes and close-knit friendships.

I liked how Rain found his own inner strength to know he wanted to take a chance with Cole and I loved how the latter dealt with the big dramatic moment and found his own way of overcoming his vulnerabilities.

The split in two family arc is also fascinating for me and I can’t wait to see how that develops.
