Review: Cage

Cage Cage by Harper Sloan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Spunky N Sassy Rating: 5.0

~~~~~~~~~~~Tracy's ★★★★★ Review~~~~~~~~~~

Greg Cage has always protected those he loves. Events that he had no power over made him do the one thing he swore he wouldn't do and he failed his sister Grace. His best friends, whom he promised to protect are now being protected by others, so he feels himself lost for the first time in a long time. That is until he runs into nurse Melissa "Meli" Larson and she changes and challenges him at every turn. Meli has always been the one that takes care of her family so when Greg steps in and wants to take care of her, she fights him every step of the way. When the very woman he is fighting to hold on to and their life together is threatened, Greg will stop at nothing to protect what is his regardless the cost. I love this book so much. Meli is a strong, independent and obstinate woman who doesn't need saving. Greg is a strong alpha male who wants and needs to protect those he loves. When Meli and Greg collide the sparks fly and boy howdy do they ever. Harper Sloan writes amazing books and this one in no exception. She gives you danger, romance and lots of spice. MUST READ SERIES!!!

So much happens in this last book. The finding of an eternal love, a new family, and the love of their entire town has Jane and Cole very happy. On their return, they learn of the fire that almost destroyed the saloon. Jane's heart drop because she just can’t take anymore. They stand strong and fight. So many things are made final and the outcomes will shock you. Excellent writing as always. To each character in this book, I say thank you for the ride into Dominion Falls. To the Author, you knocked this one out of the park.

~~~~~~~~~~Dee's ★★★★★ Review~~~~~~~~~~

From the serenity and joy of the last book, Cole and Jane return to Dominion Falls to find chaos and destruction. Great destruction opens the window for generous service. In this book, we discover who is trying to destroy Cole's business. There is a surprising twist that adds to Jane's mental pain. A Mother's sacrifice is without its equal. I found the conversations among the Young brothers and between Jane and her friends to be humorous. The dialog with Marshall was revetting. Excellent reading adventure right down to the last page. I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review. Five Stars.

~~~~~~~~~~Amanda's ★★★★★ Review~~~~~~~~~~

The final book in the series and you will not be disappointed. Throughout this series you will mainly laugh, but you will also feel the pain of heartache and loss. This series is breathtaking and will not leave you feeling lost. It is well written and has just the right amount of details that it plays smoothly through your head like a movie. It is a fast paced and easy read series. I definitely suggest reading it in order. Each book ends on a cliffhanger until the very last book. You have reached the end with this book.

~~~~~~~~~~Julie's ★★★★★ Review~~~~~~~~~~

How can one book bring so many emotion. Both love and hate are very present in this read. Jane is a miracle within herself and Cole loves her no matter what anyone thinks. Can they be together and have a good life? Will fate tear them apart? So many questions and you will find some of the answers in this read. I am in love with these characters. To find the truth and keep Jane safe, Cole must stay be her side and see to that. Her brothers are determined to find the truth but in order to do so, death may come. Excellent writing with a storyline that will blow you away. This series is really a must read.

~~~~~~~~~~Dee's ★★★★★ Review~~~~~~~~~~

Once again we are entangled in the drama and mystery of Jane and Cole. With the first few pages, the mysterious stranger returns to town and executes an unthinkable event. The suspense continues to build from that point onward. There are heart stopping moments, secrets revealed, devious plans hatched, traps set, plans thwarted, confrontations endured, on and on and on. The tension and excitement keeps one firmly attached to the storyline. Much of Clara's past is revealed. The bickering among her six brothers is both amusing and entertaining. Cass is a Master Craftsman at weaving words to build a realistic world of love, strife, joy and adventure. I was blessed to have received this series freely in exchange for an honest review. Five Stars.

First David, he says he is her husband. She needs to remember and figure this out. Cole stands by her the entire time but he isn’t happy about it. The town is a beacon for bad things. Things go really bad when Jane leaves to find the child. Dangerous and wild, this book is a must read. Excellent writing.

~~~~~~~~~~Dee's ★★★★★ Review~~~~~~~~~~

There is a great mystery with many surprising twists and turns. A lot of suspense and anxiousness as clues are explained and new ones appear. The author teases the reader with surprising events and later reveals the secret planning behind the event that totally changes the original perception. Keeps one on their toes and constantly sneaking ahead a few pages to see if all is as it seems. Fascinating story, well written and would be an interesting movie. The frustrating three words...."To be continued"...came much too soon. I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review. Five Stars.

~~~~~~~~~~Amanda's ★★★★★ Review~~~~~~~~~~

I loved this book series. It was a definite great escape. They are fast paced and easy read. They can be read as a stand alone, but I recommend reading them in order. The details are written great throughout and you're not left with wondering. I was given an ARC for my honest review.

~~~~~~~~~~Patricia's ★★★★★ Review~~~~~~~~~~

Well the story continues in Dominion Falls with Cole finding Jane aka Clara. Well Clara has been through a traumatic time in her life with someone trying to kill her and trying to find her son. Well Jane ends up with amnesia and is wanted for a bunch of crimes to which she doesn't remember. We also get to catch up with the rest of the gang from Dominion Falls.this was another greatly written historical book about Indians attacking and how saloons and things happened back in the olden days.

Review: Love in Carson Falls

Love in Carson Falls Love in Carson Falls by Paisleigh Aumack
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Spunky N Sassy Rating: 5.0

~~~~~~~~~~Tracy's ★★★★★ Review~~~~~~~~~~

Arianna Morgan is coming from a place of great loss. When her friend Penny offers her sanctuary from the evil that is chasing her, she takes her up on it and moves in with her to Carson Falls. Carson Falls is the perfect little small town. She meets River Bradshaw and his beautiful little girl Cady. Through the push of Penny Arianna starts teaching Cady piano lessons. Although on the outside Carson Falls looks like nothing bad can happen here, that isn't the case for Arianna. Will she ever escape her past and move onto love or will the evil she escaped from find her again? I loved this story so much. It was a different type of story. Arianna was fragile yet through her meeting River and Cady, she learns to be strong again. River isn't the typical alpha male either, his soft side for his daughter just melted my heart. Definitely a must read and I can't wait to read Brax and Penny's story.

Ruck Me

Title: Ruck Me
Series: Dublin Rugby #2
Author: Rebecca Norinne
Genre: Contemporary Sports Romance
Release Date: August 9, 2017


She’s a free spirit; he’s a no nonsense kind of guy. When these opposites attract ... oh baby! It's game on!

I’ve called Aoife O’Shaughnessy a number of things, but dumb was never one of them. Through all the insane things she’s done—all the trouble she’s gotten into—I never once thought she was actually stupid. Until now. Because I just heard her plan to lose her virginity to the vilest human being I’ve ever met.

My first thought? How the f*ck is Aoife still a virgin? The second? Over my dead body.

So I volunteered for the job instead.

It might be the stupidest thing I’ve ever done, but once the words were out of my mouth, I couldn’t take them back. Now, I can’t stop wondering what it will be like to kiss the pink-haired sprite I’ve known my whole life, to hear her moan my name when she comes.

And I know she’s wondering about me too.

What started off as a bit of fun has spiraled out of control and now I’m in deep. I never meant to fall in love with Aoife … it was never supposed to go this far. 
And what happens next, just might break both of us.

Take Down

Title: Take Down 
Author: Dez Burke 
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Suspense, Comedy 
Photographer & Model: Leo Taylor 

She thinks I'm her Guardian Angel. I know I'm her worst nightmare.

I thought I had everything under control. Until the day I saved Maggie’s life.

Most men would melt if a girl like her looked at them the way she looks at me, as if I was her savior, her protector.

She sees the muscles, the tats, the hero the media makes me out to be. 

I’d give anything to be that man, to hear her screaming my name as I showed her exactly what a Marine can do in bed, but I can’t let her in.

What I had to do in Afghanistan made me a monster. 

If I let her in… I might let it out. 

I belong over there, in hell. 

I don’t know how to live in the heaven that is Maggie.

She doesn't realize how hard I'm fighting to keep her away.

She doesn't know who I really am.

I'm irredeemable.

She should run.

Before she unleashes a monster that can’t be controlled.

Take Down is a full-length stand alone romance novel with a guaranteed HEA, no cheating or cliffhangers! Take Down is 87,000 words and 418 pages long. 

I glance down at the small hand reaching over to cover mine. Maggie gently pries my clenched fingers apart and laces her fingers through them without speaking.
The small gesture is a gut punch to my insides. I struggle to swallow past the pain I’m feeling inside.
It’s almost too much to hope that she’s willing to give me a second chance. Especially after what I just put her through. I’m nothing but a total stranger. She doesn’t know me at all. Yet she’s willing to take a risk.
On me.  
For me.
It’s hard for me to believe someone would be willing to do that. Most of my life I’ve been alone. Scraping by and making it the best I can by myself without help from anyone.
“Why?” I ask.
I don’t elaborate. I don’t need to. She knows what I’m asking.
“Because I see something hidden in you deep down below all the pain,” she says. “I know it’s there. I feel it. You’re a good man inside, Toby. It doesn’t matter what you’ve done in the past. Or even tonight. I can look past all that. I know who you really are.”
I feel the tension I’ve been holding in my body for what seems like forever slowly start to melt away. Lifting our hands to my lips, I gently kiss her fingers. My lips linger a long second.
“Look at me,” she says.
I can’t.
Not yet.
I’m afraid if I do, she’ll see me for what I really am. When I don’t, she places a hand on my cheek and turns my face toward hers.
“See?” she says. “Take a long look. I’m still here, and I’m okay. A little freaked out and bruised, but I’ll survive.”
I’m not so sure.
“How can you ever forgive me?” I ask, reaching up a gentle hand to lightly touch her neck.
“I already have,” she says softly.
With a defeated groan, I pull her close and crush my lips against hers in a desperate kiss. All of the emotions I’ve fought so long to keep in check come flooding out. I close my eyes and drink in her intoxicating sweetness until my head reels.
Knowing that she’s willing to take a chance after what I did makes me crazy. She should run out into the night screaming for help. Instead here she is, her lips soft and eager against mine.
I need her tonight.
She’ll never know how much.
