Eden: Josh Evans and I have been best friends forever. He knows all my secrets, and I know all of his. So when he randomly asks me to help him lose his virginity, I sort of flip out. That’s a question that sends your mind to places you’ve seriously never considered before. Like, you know. Having sex. With your best friend. Except Josh doesn’t want to have sex with me—he wants me to help him find a girl. A nice girl who’s funny and smart and cute. Except he already knows a girl just like that…

Josh: Eden Sumner is my best friend. So of course she’d be the person to help me find my perfect match, so I can drop my V card before I head off to college. Except the more we search, the more I realize that maybe the right girl has been by my side all along. I don’t need Eden’s help in finding me a girl to love. I’m pretty sure I’m already in love with Eden. But now she thinks I’m only after one thing…with anyone but her.

Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book is what happens when American Pie meets Friends with Benefits. It contains two best friends, plenty of angst, and lots and lots of sex talk. Reading this might have you looking at your best friend in a different light!

 

In an Oyster Shell – A sweet friends to maybe something more romance with a satisfying HEA.

The Pearls –  I love friends who might become something more story. It’s what drew me to this story and I was not disappointed. The two main characters are incredibly close when the story opens its endearing.  They seem to cross some lines at too much sharing but it makes for a great story.

The supporting characters are a nice highlight of the already solid main characters. This story was very character driven and well done. Eden was sweet and feisty a good complement to Josh. Their friends help them see whats right in front of them. It made for an easy and fast read.

The romance was really good. It takes them a bit to figure it out but its a fun journey along the way. The ending is really sweet. I am all team, Josh, and Eden!

The Sand – It was a good book.

Review – 

In an Oyster Shell-  The story was good with some elements that were out of place and some lack of character development in supporting characters.

The Pearls – I am married to a Software Engineer so reading a love story featuring one was exciting for me. The author represented this character with accuracy. The concept was fun and the challenges that the couple faces made for a compelling story.

The settings where romantic a french part of Canada and Boston. It was romantic. Especially that the love interest lives in a small cabin that is portrayed as picturesque. They meet at a coffee shop and it’s super sweet. The descriptions make you feel like you are right there.

The romance was sweet and well developed. It grew over the story through letter writing mostly it was unique. The other romances that were developed in previous stories were reflected in this one. It was a romance fan’s dream story.

The Sand – Some of the supporting characters were a little flat. There was a paranormal element that was a little out of place. The end of the story the chapter titles infer that the story should have stopped sooner than it did.

It is not a clean romance.

As a professional organizer, Maggie McDonald brings order to messy situations. But when a good friend becomes a murder suspect, surviving the chaos is one tall task . . .

Despite a looming deadline, Maggie thinks she has what it takes to help friends Jason and Stephen unclutter their large Victorian in time for its scheduled renovation. But before she can fill a single bin with unused junk, Jason leaves for Texas on an emergency business trip, Stephen’s injured mastiff limps home—and Stephen himself lands in jail for murder. Someone killed the owner of a local Chinese restaurant and stuffed him in the freezer. Stephen, caught at the crime scene covered in blood, is the number one suspect. Now Maggie must devise a strategy to sort through secrets and set him free—before she’s tossed into permanent storage next . . .

In an Oyster Shell – A little slow so it was hard to get into. It had a great mystery.

The Pearls – The storyline was solid for the most part. There were good conflict and a good mystery. The stakes were really high so it made for a more interesting narrative.

The characters were good. It was really good to see the noble side of Steven. He’s already been a pretty noble character in the series but the author steps it up for this installment. He sacrifices a lot in the story for a good cause. Maggie and the dogs where the stars and where fun to follow.

This book highlights the homeless in this story. I thought it was a good portrayal of a social issue. I liked how the book gives ideas on how to help the homeless. The principles can be applied to the reader’s life.

The Sand – The story was slow at times. I wasn’t completely satisfied with the ending.

Lights. Camera. Murder? Wildwood Cove’s star turn is soured by a sneaky killer in this delicious cozy mystery from the USA Today bestselling author of The Crêpes of Wrath.

Bonus content: includes original recipes inspired by the Flip Side Pancake House menu!

With a Hollywood film crew in town to shoot a remake of the horror classic The Perishing, the residents of Wildwood Cove are all abuzz. Even Marley McKinney, owner of The Flip Side Pancake House, can overlook the fact that the lead actress, Alyssa Jayde, happens to be an old flame of her boyfriend. After all, the crew loves Marley’s crêpes—so much so that Christine, the head makeup artist, invites her onset for a behind-the-scenes tour. But when Marley arrives, the special-effects trailer is on fire . . . with Christine inside.

The cops quickly rule Christine’s death a murder, and Alyssa a suspect. Marley’s boyfriend insists that the actress is innocent, but when Marley sticks her nose into the complicated lives of The Perishing’s cast and crew, she discovers more questions than answers. It seems that everyone has a hidden agenda—and a plausible motive. And as the horror spills over from the silver screen, Marley gets a funny feeling that she may be the killer’s next victim.

Sarah Fox’s addictive Pancake House Mysteries can be enjoyed together or à la carte:THE CRÊPES OF WRATH | FOR WHOM THE BREAD ROLLS | OF SPICE AND MEN

 

Marley McKinney is settling into fall at the Flipside Pancake house. The town is all excited because a movie is being filmed there. The crew from the movie enjoys eating at the pancake house so much they invite Marley onset. When she gets there the special effects trailer is on fire with Christine inside. Christine’s death has quickly ruled a murder. Alyssa Jayde is the number one suspect who happens to be an old flame of Marley’s boyfriend. She turns to him to help and he asks Marley to help. She wants to get to the bottom of what happened so everyone can move on. Marley needs to find out what happened before an innocent person goes to jail.

In an Oyster Shell- It’s a good mystery. I really like this series.

The Pearls – It was a fun twist to bring a movie set to the small town. It added a nice flare to the story. I liked that you get the small town feel with the added bonus of new characters from the movie set. You get to see the cook Ivan a little bit more involved being passionate about the original movie versus the remake. It was nice to see a different side of him.

The characters were spot on. Marley struggles a bit with her relationship and it makes her relatable. The supporting characters were distinctive, well-developed, and added to the story nicely.

The romance added a nice twist. It’s nice that the couple had obstacles to overcome. It added more depth to their relationship. I look forward to what happens between Marley and Bret in the next book.

The Sand – It was a good book.

NEW RELEASE….
Will her cat ruin her Christmas chance for love?

Bella Tallahan has always hidden behind her twin sister, Tally. She was born with cerebral palsy and even though she has finished college, she lives vicariously through her sister’s adventures.

It worked, until her sister married writer Lucky Lenigan, and Bella developed a crush on Lucky’s brother—a bad boy with a shady past.

Chance Martin made one mistake growing up—one that landed him in prison. After his release, he spends his days restoring antique furniture and his nights alone.

When Mr. Klutz, Bella’s fat tabby cat, wreaks havoc in the furniture workshop, Chance confronts Bella and finds himself with a dilemma. He’s not the right kind of guy for a woman with disabilities, but at the same time, he can’t get her out of his mind.

Will the trail of destruction left by one naughty cat bring Bella her Christmas chance for love? Can Chance rise above his past and convince Bella that she is truly worth loving? Or will the secret he is keeping horrify Bella enough to send her back into hiding?

Author’s Note: Although part of the Christmas Creek Romance Series, Her Christmas Chance is a complete and standalone story. Bella Tallahan appears in a previous story, Lucky in Laguna, where her sister Tally Tallahan meets and falls in love with Lucky Lenigan.

Book 2:
Bella & Chance, Her Christmas Chance
Review – 
Bella has a wayward cat that likes to find himself in Chance’s woodworking shop tearing things up. Chance confronts Bella and upsets her. Bella is devastated she has a crush on chance and is resigned that relationships are not for her. Chance apologizes for upsetting her and shows her a good time. More and more time they spend together it seems Chance can look past Bella’s disabilities.  The only thing holding them back is the secret of what put Chance in jail which he was released from three years ago. Chance is afraid when the truth comes out Bella will be the one that will want to run. 
In an Oyster Shell –  A good romance that was tasteful and inspiring.
The Pearls – I here the term diverse characters being thrown around and I think Bella should be considered a diverse character especially in a romance. Bella was severely disabled and was not your typical heroine for a romance. I loved it. Her disabilities where her strength and how Chance accepted them made them even more beautiful.
I loved that this book was set in a small town with a big loving family thrown into the mix. Bella’s family comes to town and there is drama from her brother but other than that her family is overprotective of her. When they make a point to let her make her own decisions and accept Chance it leaves you with a cozy feeling.
I like the character development. Both Bella and Chance thought they were social rejects that nobody could love. They proved each other wrong. That took a lot of guts that they acquired through perseverance.
The Sand – It was a good book.

NEW RELEASE…

Sweet with Heat: Seaside Summers features a group of fun, flirty, and emotional friends who gather each summer at their Cape Cod cottages. They’re sassy, flawed, and so easy to relate to, you’ll be begging to enter their circle of friends! All books can be read as stand-alone novels.

Secrets at Seaside by Addison Cole is the sweet edition of New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster’s steamy romance novel Seaside Secrets. The stories and characters remain the same and convey all of the passion you expect between two people in love, without any explicit scenes or harsh language.

In SECRETS at SEASIDE… 

Tony Black is the hottest surfer on the planet. He travels the world throughout the year and spends his summers on Cape Cod with his friends, at the Seaside cottages in Wellfleet, Massachusetts. He’s got his choice of women, but Amy Maples is the one he wants. Fourteen years ago she was his for an entire summer, until a devastating accident changed everything, and what they had seemed like it had never existed—at least for her.

Amy Maples is as consistent as the day is long. She’s spent summers on Cape Cod forever, she always does the right thing, and she’s spent years trying to reclaim the heart of Tony Black, the only man she’s ever loved. She’s back for a summer of fun with her friends at Seaside, only this year she’s been offered the opportunity of a lifetime thousands of miles away, and she’s decided to try one last time to reconnect with Tony. But having a relationship with Tony means dealing with her past—and dealing with her past may knock her to her knees.

Review – 

In an Oyster Shell – This is probably my favorite installment of the series. This book had a lot of depth.

The Pearls – It’s finally here the greatly anticipated story of Tony and Amy. The romance has been hinted at all through out the series and now I have gotten to read it. It was most definitely worth the wait.  As the title implies there are a lot of secrets between the two of them that finally see the light of day.

You can’t read these books and not say something about the characters. You get a deeper look into Tony and Amy’s life. Tony is not just some surfer guy he has a lot of depth. Amy the more innocent of the seaside crew, has been harboring some dark secrets. This also gives the reader a different perspective into her character. Of course the rest of the gang is around and makes the story delightful with their different personalities.

The romance was touch and go in the beginning. Tony and Amy had a lot of hurts from the past to overcome. The end is very satisfying.  I am grateful that Addison Cole does a clean version of her steamy novels so I get to enjoy the stories with a steam level that I am comfortable with.

The Sand – It was a good book.

Leanna’s come to the Cape hoping to find a fulfilling career in the jam-making business, and until she figures out her own life, a man is not on the menu. But Leanna can’t get the six-two, deliciously muscled and tragically neat Kurt out of her mind. She tells herself she’s just stopping by to say thank you, but the heart-warming afternoon sparks an emotional and unexpectedly sweet ride as Kurt and Leanna test the powers of Chemistry 101: Opposites Attract.

Dreaming at Seaside (Sweet with Heat: Seaside Summers Book 2)
Bella Abbascia has returned to Seaside Cottages in Wellfleet, Massachusetts, as she does every summer. Only this year, Bella has more on her mind than sunbathing and skinny-dipping with her girlfriends. She’s quit her job, put her house on the market, and sworn off relationships while she builds a new life in her favorite place on earth. That is, until good-time Bella’s prank takes a bad turn and a handsome police officer appears on the scene.

Single father and police officer Caden Grant left Boston with his fourteen-year-old son, Evan, after his partner was killed in the line of duty. He hopes to find a safer life in the small resort town of Wellfleet, and when he meets Bella during a night patrol shift, he realizes he’s found the one thing he’d never allowed himself to hope for—or even realized he was missing.

After fourteen years of focusing solely on his son, Caden cannot resist the intense attraction he feels toward beautiful Bella, and Bella’s powerless to fight the heat of their budding romance. But starting over proves more difficult than either of them imagined, and when Evan gets mixed up with the wrong kids, Caden’s loyalty is put to the test. Will he give up everything to protect his son—even Bella?

Hearts at Seaside (Sweet with Heat: Seaside Summers Book 3)
Jenna Ward is vivacious, spontaneous, and confident—except when she’s around the man who stole her heart years earlier, strikingly handsome, quiet, and reliable Pete Lacroux. After years of trying to get his attention and overwhelmed from dealing with her mother’s new cougar lifestyle, Jenna’s giving up on Peter—and is ready to explore other men.

As the eldest of five siblings, with an alcoholic father to care for, boat craftsman Pete Lacroux always does the right thing and has no time for a real relationship. He’s looking forward to seeing his friend Jenna, a welcome distraction who’s so sexy and painfully shy that she equally entertains and confuses him.

When Jenna picks up a hard-bodied construction worker, jealousy ignites Pete’s true feelings, and he’s unable to ignore the desires for Jenna he never realized he had. But Pete’s not the quiet guy he appears to be, and his life is anything but conducive to a relationship. Can Jenna handle the real Pete Lacroux—the most alpha male she’s ever seen—or will she crack under pressure? And can Pete reclaim the life he once had without tearing apart his family?

Jessica Ayers has lived a sheltered life with little more than cello lessons and practices taking up her day. Now a member of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, she escapes the prim and proper symphony to vacation in the Seaside community in Wellfleet, Massachusetts, to determine if she is living life to the fullest or missing it altogether.

For the first time since developing the second largest search engine in the world, billionaire Jamie Reed is taking the summer off. He plans to work from the Cape and spend time with his elderly grandmother—and falling in love is not in his plans.

But when Jamie’s business encounters trouble and his attorney and best friend intervenes, he proves that the brown-haired beauty is too distracting for Jamie. To make matters worse, it appears that Jessica might not be who she says she is, turning Jamie’s life—and his heart—upside down. In a world where personal information is always one click away, Jamie must decide if he should trust his heart or watch the woman he loves walk away.

Sky Lacroux has finally realized her dream and opened her own tattoo shop in Provincetown, Massachusetts. She’s happy as can be, preparing the shop for its grand opening and renting a cottage in the Seaside community while renovations to her new apartment are being completed. The only thing missing is the one thing she longs for, and has no control over—love.

Sawyer Bass, a professional boxer, plays his guitar at a local bar to escape the painful reality of his father’s deteriorating health and a recent health warning of his own. But when he spots a stunning brunette across the room, escaping reality goes out the window, and the beautiful woman becomes the focus of his next song—and maybe even the rest of his life.

When Sawyer walks into Sky’s tattoo shop and sees the woman from the bar—Sky—the chemistry between them is instant. Sawyer is everything Sky could ever hope for in a man. He’s honest, loving, sensitive, and potently virile—but boxing goes against everything Sky believes in. The closer they become, the more she realizes that her alpha boxer is waging his own emotional battle—only the battle she thinks he’s waging isn’t the one that threatens to tear them apart.

Review – The Girl Who Disappeared Twice by Andrea KaneThe Girl Who Disappeared Twice by Andrea Kane
Series: ,
Published by Mira on May 29th 2012
Genres: Thriller
Pages: 394
Source: Purchased Amazon
Goodreads
Amazon

Despite all her years determining the fates of families, judge Hope Willis couldn't save her own. Her daughter taken, she's frantically grasping at any hope for Krissy's return. Her husband dead-set against it, Hope calls a team not bound by the legal system.

Forensic Instincts: a behaviorist. A techno-wizard. An intuitive. An ex-Navy SEAL. Unconventional operatives. All with unique talents and personal reasons for joining Casey Woods's group, they'll do whatever it takes.

Able to accurately read people after the briefest of encounters, Casey picks up in the Willis household signs of a nervous spouse, a guilty conscience, a nanny that hides on her phone. Secrets beg to creep into the open.

Forensic Instincts will dig through each tiny clue and eliminate the clutter, working around the clock. But time is running out, and Casey's team knows that the difference between getting Krissy back and her disappearing forever could be as small as a suspect's rapid breathing, or as deep as Hope's dark family history.

Hope Willis worse nightmare comes true her daughter is snatched at school. History is repeating itself as decades earlier her sister was taken from their room. Hope hires Forensics Instincts to help find her daughter. FI works around the clock to find Krissy. It lands them in a tangled weave of deceptions and dark backgrounds. Time is running out and they must hurry to find Krissy before she disappears for good.

In an Oyster Shell – Not as amazing as the first Forensics Instincts book I read but it was still pretty good.

The Pearls –  As you would come to expect in Kane’s thrillers the mystery was multi-faceted and complicated. There were lots of details and trails that the investigators went over. It kept you guessing as the reader.

It was fun to read the first book. In this book, you get to see the beginning of Forensic Instincts. You get a glimpse into the inner workings of the team. You get to see Claire come onto the team. She was my favorite character in the sixth book A Face To Die For the book that introduced me to the series. You also get to see how their dog comes onto the team.

I like that this book is packed with things to keep you interested in like romance. Casey has a complicated relationship with FBI investigator. As they are both working on the case one as a professional and one as a private investigator there are complications.

The Sand –  I didn’t like this book as well as the first book I read but it was still good. I will continue with the series.

Return to Liora Blake’s Grand Valley series with Second Chance Season, in which an avowed country boy with a family duty meets an ambitious city girl with even bigger goals and who shows him just what he’s been missing.

Garrett Strickland is unapologetically country, fiercely loyal, and perfectly happy with his job at the Hotchkiss Co-op. Garrett is all about living in the present and not dwelling in the past—even if he was once on his way to a lofty agricultural sciences degree that would guarantee the brightest of futures, only to end up back home when his old man died, leaving behind a debt-ridden family farm that was impossible to keep afloat. After that, it was easy to see why dreaming big wasn’t worth the heartache. And until he crosses paths with a city girl who’s hell-bent on kick-starting her own future, he’s sure that good enough is just that.

Cara Cavanaugh is ready for more from life, even if that means changing everything; including dumping her boyfriend of ten years, turning down a lucrative job at a major newspaper, and leaving behind the upscale suburbs of Chicago where she grew up. Now, she just has to pray that temporarily relocating to the middle of nowhere in Colorado will be the first step in building a career as a freelance journalist—all she has to do is prove she’s got what it takes to make a name for herself. Unfortunately, her tony country day school is as close to “country” as she’s ever been. But when a goodhearted guy who looks like he just stumbled out of a country music video offers to help, she ends up falling hard…and discovering that the perfect story is a love story. And it’s theirs.

Second Chance Season, book two in the Grand Valley series, is a charming, feel-good romance, perfect for fans of Jennifer Probst and Kristan Higgins.

Garrett Strickland works at a dead end job at Hotchkiss Co-Op he has grown to accept his simple country life. Cara Cavanaugh is trying to break out of her socialite life and make it as a freelance writer much to her mother’s disapproval. When Garrett helps Cara out of a bind, he thinks she is as a city as she gets. It seems like an ironic twist of fate when she stays at the farm where Garrett grew up. The very farm he had to sell. Sparks fly between them as they decide to have a relationship in the eight weeks Cara will be there. They think they will be able to walk away when the eight weeks is over.

In an Oyster Shell – A steamy romance that I struggled to engage in.

The Pearls – I liked Cara’s character. She was active and determined. Garrett was too in his way. So bringing the two of them together there were very appropriate fireworks. I liked how Cara adapted to country life. She pushed the boundaries on her upbringing. She wasn’t afraid to break out of what she knew.

I loved how Garrett had just accepted his lot in life, and Cara pushed him to want more. It was the best part of the story.

The romance was tantalizing. Bringing a country boy with a city girl made for a great story.

The Sand – The story was hard to get excited about. It was a little bit predictable.

How long does it take to travel 13 light-years to Earth?How long does it take to fall in love?

To the universe, eight days is a mere blip—but to Matty Jones, it may be just enough time to change his life.

On the hot summer day Matty’s dad leaves for good, a strange girl suddenly appears in the empty field next to the Jones farm—the very field in rural Pennsylvania where a spaceship supposedly landed fifty years ago. She is uniquely beautiful, sweet, and smart, and she tells Matty she’s waiting for her spaceship to return to pick her up.

Of course she is.

Matty has heard all the impossible UFO stories for all of his seventeen years: the conspiracy theories, the wild rumors, the crazy belief in life beyond the stars. As a kid, he searched the skies with his dad and studied the constellations. But all that is behind him now. Dad’s gone and Matty’s stuck.

But now there is Priya. The self-proclaimed alien girl. She must be crazy or high, right?

As Matty unravels the mystery of Priya, he realizes there is far more to her than he first imagined. And if he can learn to believe in what he can’t see: the universe, aliens…love…then maybe the impossible is possible, after all.

Review – 

In an Oyster Shell – An emotionally provocative read that will pull at your heartstrings.

The Pearls – The book starts out with a cynical Matty who disbelieves everything his father ever told him. Pryia comes into his life showing up at the field and challenges his beliefs. The concept was interesting, its what drew me to the book but the execution was above and beyond expectation. It was unexpected and most welcome.

The characters really make this story. Matty being the main character sets the tone throughout the book. His growth is exponential and makes for a satisfying read. Pryia remains a mystery for most of the book which is intriguing. The two interacting is delightful.

The romance was sweet and changed me as a reader. It challenged my beliefs. I felt that along with Matty I grew a little bit.

The end was unexpected and very well done.

The Sand – It was a good book.

4.5 Pearls!

About Cat Jordan

When I was a teenager, the very first book I ever tried to write was pretentious and stilted and set in a future where there was no paper. Obviously, I fancied myself another Ray Bradbury (who I was thrilled to meet not once but twice!). The book had an awesome title and no plot but I had the most fun creating the characters and the world they lived in. That to me is the most enjoyable part of writing a novel: envisioning a world and populating it with all kinds of people and dogs. Gotta have a dog.

The worlds I create now as an adult are based on my travels from coast to coast in the US, to Europe and Mexico and Canada, and on the people I have met and loved and admired and feared. And dogs.

Currently I live in Los Angeles. With my dog.
