Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet (Charley Davidson #4) by Darynda Jones
When a new client comes knocking she can't say no and when everyone thinks the young woman is lying, the more Charlie believes her.
She also breaks the two month no contact with Reyes Farrow, the son of Satan. She goes out and looks for him. She discovers he is performing cage fighting but it seems like he also may be fighting real demons too.
We get a glimpse of Donovan a couple of times that makes you want more interaction between him and Charley (sorry Reyes for cheating on you). Donovan is so well written. A biker with a great heart. (I may have a weakness for them- SOA Jax, Tack Motorcycle Man).
Book four has a nice flow, some action, a great scene between Reyes and Charley. Donovan is a plus. Her guardian is cute.
Simply Irresistible (Chinooks Hockey Team #1) by Rachel Gibson
Years later, Gerogeanne has a catering service and by accident meets again with John. He recognizes her immediately and when she leaves something behind, he returns it to her the next morning. He gets the shock of his life when he discovers he has a child.
Can they form a happy family together? Can they forget each other's mistreatments?
I wanted to like this book more than I did. I just didn't like the characters. John was rude multiple times and Georgeanne rumblings were a turn off.
Iced (Dani O'Malley-Fever #6) by Karen Marie Moning
Dani O'Malley is a fourteen year old girl who is leaving in Dublin after the Wall fell. The Fae are everywhere and she is trying to kill them all. Her Sword of Light and Mack's weapon are the only two tools that can do it. She has many powers, super hearing, super speed and likes to think of herself as a super hero.
Ryodan is interested in Dani. He forces her to start working for him. She agrees because a friend's life is in danger.
Dani has many hiding places and she has some in common with Dancer.
Dancer is human, super smart, handsome geek a few years older than Dani. He has secrets we don't know about.
And to close the future romance circle we have Christian MacKeltar who is becoming an Unseelie Prince and seems to be obsessed with Dani.
In the middle of all this testosterone, something very dangerous is killing humans and Fae. People and places are being frozen and dying. There is a race to stop this before the world gets destroyed.
I gotta be honest here. I didn't like Dani in earlier books. With trepidation I started Iced and discover that I really liked the book. Ryodan is a super alpha male. KMM writes Dani in a way that you forget she is only 14. Can't wait for her to get older and see who she picks. Christian is a danger that you like to have around and Dancer he is the human boy holding secrets we need to know.
Why do I have to wait longer for the second book.
Spoiler Fangalert: I love that Ryodan bit her and now he can tell where she is at. Love the JZB cameo and can't wait for Mac's confrontation.
Ryodan makes a burbling sound like a bloody laugh. I don’t think he even has the parts left to laugh with. “Get in line.”

Eternal Vows (The Ruby Ring #1) by Chrissy Peebles
Sarah is mistaken for Princess Gloria and taken prisioner by King Victor. He forces her to marry him and she agrees to it because the ring that he gives her is a portal to her world.
She escapes Victor and tries to find her sister and avoid getting killed in the process. She discovers she is linked to Victor and that she is attracted to him as well.
Victor is strong and powerful character. I wish there was more interaction between them. That will probably be my one complaint. I think Sarah left too soon. I will read the second book.

Death and the Girl Next Door (Darklight #1) by Darynda Jones
She also notices another high school classmate following her around. His name is Cameron Lusk and he used to be close to her. Now, he is a loner. The two boys seem to hate each other and Lorelei seems to be in the middle.
Soon she discovers what both men are. Her life is all upside down.
I decided to read this YA book because of Miss Jones. I love her adult series. I like that there is NO LOVE TRIANGLE in this book. It made it easy to enjoy. There is a subplot with her secondary characters that keep you interested as well.
Bound to Love by Sally Clements
As a security expert he knows his disappearance means leverage on his mother. A heist has been planned and it involves the British Museum, his mother and some Egyptian jewelry.
Tempest MacKenzie is a goldsmith and after leaving the British Museum she gets tangled up with Jake's abduction.
She has always let her intuition guide her and this may be hard to understand for someone in control of his life like Jake.
The book was fast paced, easy reading on an afternoon.
The Morning After by Sally Clements
So when he offers her to spent sometime with him in his States home, she can't turn him down.
Ethan has always loved Cara. She is his best friend and confident. But helping her out of the Winnie the Pooh custom has shown him, she is a woman with many curves and he knows he is in trouble. The last thing he needs is to complicate their friendship so he is perplexed when he hears himself inviting her to his home.
Things get only more complicated.
I thought the characters were well developed. I liked that they were good friends for a while. They seem real.
