Kiss the Boys by Chris Myers
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was hauntingly beautiful like I imagine Nate’s angel’s to be. It was tragic yet so much blossoms and grows from that tragedy and so many people learn to love and forgive and grow-up and become the people they are meant to be all because of one woman. I love the lesson that can be learned from this book about not giving up through any tragedy and to fight for your life, your dreams, love, your future, someone else’s future, something, everything, just FIGHT! River absolves these boys of all their sins…it’s the perfect name. She gives everyone absolution. Don’t get me wrong, there are many triggers in this book so be forewarned. It deals with rape, drugs, PTSD, abuse, and lots of guilt and anger, but I love this book. Myers is a gifted writer who is able to tackle so many sensitive issues for both boys and girls who survive rape and abuse and the foster system. and feel shame and guilt but Myers does a beautiful job handling these tough topics. Everyone should read this book and realize what can happen and how just one person can make a difference.

I received this romantic suspense book from the author for an honest review.

The Rule Breakers #2

Entangled Embrace

 

Ten
Steps to Surviving a New Job:

1. Don’t sleep with the client. It’ll get you fired. (Sounds easy enough.)
2. Don’t blink when new client turns out to be former one-night stand.

3. Don’t call same client a jerk for never texting you back.

4. Don’t believe client when he says he really, really wanted to call.

5. Remember, the client is always right—so you can’t junk punch him when he
demands new design after new design.

6. Ignore accelerated heartbeat every time sexy client walks into room.

7. Definitely ignore client’s large hands. They just mean he wears big gloves.

8. Don’t let client’s charm wear you down. Be strong.

9. Whatever you do, don’t fall for the client. You’ll lose more than your
job—maybe even your heart.

10. If all else fails, see rule number one again.

 
~ Coming January 16th ~

 
 
He scrubbed
his palms over his face and rested his elbows on his knees. “This was not how I
saw this night going.”
“Big
Valentine’s Day plans?”
He lowered his
hands and looked at me like I’d just claimed I single-handedly caused the storm
raging outside. “I didn’t even know that was today. Does this mean we’re each
other’s valentines by default?”
I scoffed.
“Not a chance.”
He chuckled.
“Always so blunt. I like that about you.” He quickly cleared his throat as if
he hadn’t meant to say that. “Well, non-valentine, looks like we’re going to be
stuck here a while. Have anything in mind?” he said.
I decided
against packing on another insult. He was being nice, and this sure as heck
beat staring at the wall the rest of the night. “My form of entertainment is at
6 percent battery, so I’m open to suggestions.”
“Mine is fully
charged. Want to watch something?”
“Sure.” What
else did I have to do? Before I knew it, I was sitting on the bed next to him, leaning
against the ornately carved headboard. Snow gusting against the window was the
only sound in the room as he searched for a show for us to watch.
So quiet.
Way too quiet.
I fidgeted
with my necklace, moving the small diamond back and forth on the chain. The
last time I was in bed with Ryder… I didn’t even want to finish that thought,
because it’d do nothing but make this situation worse. I chanced a peek in his
direction.

He chewed the
inside of his cheek, swiping through our options. “This is awkward, huh?” he
said.
“We’ve
achieved Urkel status.”
He chuckled
and scrolled through the show queue. “Would you rather watch Law
and Order: SVU
or Criminal
Minds?”
“That is quite
possibly the worst Would You Rather question ever asked.”
His eyes cut
to mine. “I didn’t know I was playing a game.”
“You’ve never
played it?”
He shook his
head.
Lainey and I
played this game all the time in college, and when we’d take road trips
together. She always came up with the grossest ones. “It’s simple. All you have
to do is ask the person which horrible thing they’d rather do. The harder the
question, the better. Like would you rather lay in a pit of snakes, or eat
questionably dead roadkill?” I pointed to his phone. “Oh, John
Tucker Must Die.
I like that one.
“Negative,
ghost rider.” He scrolled past my suggestion. “And what the hell does questionably
dead mean? Is it still twitching, or are we talking
suspicious cause of death?”
I shrugged.
“The interpretation’s up to you.”
“You’re
absolutely no help.” He swiped his thumb across his beard and contemplated. “I
guess I’d go with the snakes.”
“Okay, now
it’s your turn,” I said.
“Do I really
have to play? I thought we were picking a show.”
I shot him a
look.
“Fine. Would
you rather have me or Chewbacca as your valentine?”
“Too easy. The
spider.”
He put his
hand to his heart. “You wound me.”
“Stop being
such a baby.” I swatted at his chest and immediately pulled my hand back. Nope.
Would not go there. “Okay, would you rather not be able to see or talk for a
month?”
He answered
instantly. “See.”
“Right. You’d
probably go nuts if you couldn’t open that big mouth of yours.”
His lips
twitched. “You’re one to talk.”
“Excuse me?”
Okay, I did have a tough time keeping my thoughts on lockdown outside the
office, but that was my own cross to bear.
“Don’t even
try to play it off like you’re innocent.”
I’d dated a
lot of losers in the past, most who hadn’t even bothered to get to know me, but
even after only hanging out a few times, Ryder had me pegged. He was
perceptive. I saw the look in his eyes whenever I dealt with Jason. His attention
focused solely on me was unnerving. “Jerk,” I sputtered.
“Now I know
you’re holding back. You can do way better than that.” He scrolled through his
phone again. “How about Die Hard?”
“Are all your
show selections about death? I’m starting to worry I made a mistake coming over
here.” My lips pulled into a smile and I quickly extinguished it. God, I wanted
to hate him.
“Fine.” He
continued looking at the Netflix queue. “Would you rather eat sushi from a taco
stand, or lick an airplane armrest?”
“Good one.
Sushi.” I pointed to his screen. “How about 10 Things I
Hate About You?”
He shook his
head and chuckled. “Are all of your suggestions
going to not-so-subtly tell me you hate me?”
I smiled
sweetly. “Maybe.”
“Just think,
most people would find this to be a romantic escape. Two people, stuck in the
mountains on Valentine’s Day,” he said.
“We’re
Hallmark movie material, all right,” I deadpanned.
“Okay, fine.
How about The Walking Dead?”
“Your show
picking powers have been officially revoked.” I grabbed the phone from his
hand.
“Hey!” He
grabbed for the phone, and I held it out of reach. “You’re going to regret
that.” Within seconds he was on top of me, playfully pinning me to the bed, his
strong hands circling my wrists. Air evaporated from my lungs as our gazes
connected.
I was
immediately transported back to that night.
Tell
me what you want, Zoey. Tell me what you need from me.
I swallowed
hard. That was months ago, and those words still haunted me from time to time.
Because he did exactly that, gave me what I wanted and needed. Repeatedly.

In many ways, this book tied up many questions from book one. It explained away Mackenzie’s leaving, but, as a mother, it still makes absolutely no sense to me. I still consider her a selfish cow and the lasting affects on Grace will be insurmountable, which I am guessing will rear its head in book three. And Lord I can only shake my head at Weston. It’s like he almost caused the whole mess with Trent and Delaney. Goodness, eyeing Trent’s woman from the moment he saw her. I wanted to smack Weston upside his head! Anyways! The book was a fast read and has lots of twists and turns but not as much as book one-thank goodness. Bring on book 3-I’m ready!

One 5-star reviewer stated

I pretty much couldn’t put the book down. Caitlyn is a journalist, who is out to get the story behind a video of a shifter…Mark is the firefighter/lawyer/ bear shifter, who helped remove her from her wrecked car. Now all bets are off, and the excitement begins! Book 2 of the series, and definitely worth reading!

I must say that I loved book 1 and can’t wait to start reading this one.

The biggest story of her life could be her last … unless her mate can save her.

Fanged peril

Curvy journalist Caitlyn Roberts can’t believe her eyes. She and her boss at a popular paranormal investigations website have just received shocking footage of a local businessman turning into a giant beast! Things go bad in a hurry when the subject of the investigation decides to destroy the evidence…and her.

Feeling the heat

Caitlyn flees for her life, only to end up stranded in the middle of nowhere when her car goes off the road. Certain she’s about to die, her luck finally takes a turn for the better when she’s rescued by the strongest, sexiest firefighter she’s ever seen.

Small town, big trouble

Bear shifter and small-town attorney Mark Swanson divides his time between running a law office to help his friends and neighbors in small-town Bearpaw Ridge and volunteering as a firefighter. The last thing he expects is for an accident victim to be his fated mate…especially when she turns out to be the reporter behind the news site determined to expose shifters as real.

Love in the crosshairs

Despite the risks, Mark and his bear can’t resist getting closer to the sexy reporter they both want to claim. The heat between them is irresistible—but when a shifter hit man shows up, it’s clear that Caitlyn’s got more problems than a wrecked car. Can he and his mate trust each other with their deepest secrets, or will their happy ending be ripped away from them?

Smolder is a full-length steamy shifter romance with no cheating and a happy ending.

I really enjoyed this story about a very strong female jaguar shifter who realizes that she has been lied to repeatedly. While on a research mission hunting down people for her job, she has the opportunity to do the right thing and figure out her life. She meets a bunch of men who respect her strength and skills and find a job that fits them. The story has a little bit of everything to keep it balanced; humor, violence, self-contemplation, romance, friendship, and a protective sexy bear shifter to round it all out.

 

Hunter_by_Bliss_Devlin_200x300

Beautiful. Deadly. Destined.

A skilled assassin…

Jaguar shifter Catrina Hunter is a Beast Warrior, used by Whitepine Security Services to do its dirty work. She might be good at her job, but she hates it. And she can’t remember anything about her life before WSS.
An assignment to retrieve an AWOL scientist and his research from the small town of Elysia goes spectacularly wrong when Catrina finds herself the prisoner of a big, handsome bear shifter. The forbidden heat that flares between them soon has her questioning her mission…and her sanity.

A hardened warrior…

Rancher Brett Thorfinnson is a former Beast Warrior himself, and he doesn’t believe the gorgeous shifter woman’s claim that she’s escaped from WSS. Something about her story doesn’t add up. What he is certain of is that she’s the sexiest woman he’s ever seen…and his bear insists that this curvy stranger is their fated mate.

A dangerous dilemma

When WSS targets one of Elysia’s human doctors, Brett must determine whether Catrina is part of the problem—or the solution. And if he decides to trust her, will his luscious cat let herself be claimed by a bear?
