Love in Spades (Four Kings Security #1) [Ace & Colton] by Charlie Cochet

This one was such a treat! I LOVED it! I don't read many Romantic Suspense novels, maybe because generally speaking I don't usually drawn to mystery novels. Yet Charlie knows how to mix well the suspense/mystery with the romantic part. MOST of this book is about Ace and Colton falling in love, but the suspense isn't forgotten, it's just PACKED in the end with enough action and drama to keep me on my toes up to the very end.

This is a new series by Charlie. I ADORED her PNR/UF series "THIRDS" and though they don't have anything really in common, what they DO share is the action/mystery. After reading this series I knew I need to grab all of Charlie's books. Up until now I mostly read PNR and Historicals so getting this book as an ARC was such a wonderful surprise! Well, the series itself was a surprise for me! After reading this one I really can't wait for the others ones in the series!

Regret Me Not by Amy Lane

Beautiful, sweet, endearing. LOVED IT! It was tender as it was heart breaking and I have a feeling if we got Hal's POV and not only Pierce's it would have been heart wrecking! so maybe Amy did us a favor focusing on Pierce. I loved everything about this book, it felt a whole story even though it was quite short and though Pierce and Hal MIGHT be considered too different to form something real together - they proved it - it's not about age, it's not about status, it's not about occupation or even where you live - it's about companionship, compassion, acceptance, tenderness, trust. THESE things are what makes a couple PERFECT together. These two have it all.  

Pierce Atwater is at the lowest he's EVER been. Unemployed and o his way to divorce is really the icing on the cake.. He is also recovering from a car accident which left him shattered outside needing A LOT of time for recovering. In pain, grumpy and depressed he spend his time in his sister's house until he realizes his mean behavior shouldn't be directed toward the one person he loves and appreciated best in his life. Packing his stuff he decides to spend the month before Christmas in a friend's apartment in Florida. The best thing about said apartment is the pool allowing him the physiotherapy he needs on his long way to recovery.

The Foxling Soldati (Soldati Hearts #2) [Rayner & Toka] by Charlie Cochet

Okay, this book KILLED me! It's not only held me on the edge of my seat, it left me with a nauseating stomach that wouldn't settle down until it was all finished! The book starts sweetly, with Raynar and Toka playing around, continue to Ezra (one of the Soldati "Royal Entourage" to King Khalon) prophesying a visit from the King of the Bear-Shifters going to end up VERY badly. You don't know the half of that!

The Soldati Prince (Soldati Hearts #1) [Khalon & Riley] by Charlie Cochet

This was more than I expected it to be! At first I was trying to figure our "what's going on?", and trying to find good virtue in the overly bossy and annoying Khalon when I caught myself truly caught (!) in the story. It was sweet and quite short, actually gave a good world building without interfering with the romantic part which while short as well was still enough for me. Really interested seeing where this series is going to go from here. There are enough hints at the next couple (and there IS a book of these two – my next read!)

Riley Murrough is an ordinary barista. His life isn't that exciting. But one night it all changes when Demons come to visit the café he works at. One minute he is finishing a few cakes left of the day the next he is running from his life only to be rescued by 4 HUGE tigers who later on transforms back to human form. Say what?! Not only that but as he is touched for a brief moment by one of the Demons a tattoo-like mark appears on his arm, one that makes the shifters take him away to their enchanted land.

Love in Retrograde by Charlie Cochet

WOW! Simply OUTSTANDING! Near midnight I realized I can't sleep so decided to start reading this one. I was actually afraid to start.. I don't usually like Sci-Fi (novels, movies, etc) but as I'm going through Charlie's booklist I decided to give this one a go and I'm so glad I did! I couldn't and wouldn't put this one down until I finished. WOW. What an emotional ride. It was SO not what I was expecting, though I'm not even sure what I DID expect. 

I have very little I can say about this novel not to spoiler it. A word can destroy it for you and I really don't want to do that! We are in the future, New London to be precise. Kelly Sutton has been working on a special project called "Mars". Though he did a lot of work behind the scenes he actually doesn't know what this project IS or what it DOES or suppose to do. Yet he wants more, and as he decides to ask to be more involved he stumbles upon a conversation he shouldn't have heard making his wish come true - now he is SERIOUSLY involved in the project.

Worth a Shot by Cari Z.

Wow, I'm actually quite surprised how much of a REAL story we got for this short novella, though I AM reducing half a star because this could barely even be considered as a HFN.

Samara Wynne feels like she has found not only the best roommate for the other side of her duplex, but also the love of her life in Katie Hansen but though everything SEEMS perfect - them getting along, practically sharing a dog,spending time together including sleeping together, and yet something doesn't feel quite right about Katie insecurities, well, up until Sam finds herself facing the barrel of a gun. From there, everything she thought she knew about Katie and what she pictured her or rather their life together was about to change. 

500 Kisses by Anyta Sunday

This one was great! Really liked it! Enjoyed getting the back and forth of these two, in their own voice and between one another. 

Chris Montgomery and Dylan Halsworth are neighbors, at the moment not very friendly ones. When Dylan needs Chris' help he is reluctant to even ask but he doesn't have any choice. Though they grew up together several mistakes done by both of them tore them apart from best friends to close to enemies. To Dylan's surprise Chris actually accepts though he has his ulterior motives for his initial act.

Bird Meets Cage by Anyta Sunday

This was SO SO beautiful and yet heart breaking at the same time. I LOVED it though I felt a sort of agony the whole time waiting, wanting "Stardust" and "Floss" to find their to their HEA. They deserved it so much, they deserved each other! ~sigh~ 

This short novella is told solely from Nathan's POV. Nearing his 18th birthday when the circus is in town he works at the cotton candy stand. There he meets "Blue" a performer who takes his breath away, seeing him before he even knew his show name in his heart he calls him "Stardust".
