Arizona businessman and long-lost McKay love child Gavin Daniels has been awarded sole custody of his teenage daughter, Sierra. In order to steer her back on track after a brush with the law, he heads to Wyoming…even if he isn’t sure where they fit in the McKay dynamic. But he’s thrown for a loop when his new housemate, Rielle, is a whole lot sexier than he remembered. Rielle Wetzler has finally overcome the stigma of having hippie parents and being a young single mother. But now Gavin is in Sundance to claim the house that’s rightfully his.

Rielle knew this day would come, but she isn’t prepared to leave the home she built for herself. And to further complicate matters, her long-dormant libido is definitely not ready to live with this newly buff Gavin—who has the take-charge attitude to prove he’s all McKay. Sharing a roof is too much temptation, and before long, Gavin and Rielle are sharing a bed. But sharing their hearts and lives forever? That’s a whole ’nother ball of wax.

What was your first thought when it ended? Holy shizzballs, peoples! I forgot how explicit Lorelei’s books were! It’s been a very long time since I’ve read a title in her Rough Riders series and it showed when characters from the other books started popping up. I haven’t read ALL the books in the series, but I’ve read the majority of them. This series covers a whole town full of McKays and while I remember some of them, there are a few stories that I didn’t care to read because it involved BDSM or menage.

I’m not into any of that.

LOVED diving back in to McKay-West world and reading about the Gavin. I don’t remember which book he previously showed up in, but he was given up by the Mom McKay when she was a teenager. In one of the previous titles, he actually showed up to confront her. I loved catching up with the other members of the family, getting to know Gavin, and loving the idea of Rielle’s entrepreneurism (homemade honey, homemade bread, growing veggies and fruit, making/dying yarn, etc.). What I loved the most was how easy it was to read the different POVs–Gavin, Rielle, Rielle’s 24 yr old daughter, Rory, and Gavin’s 16 yr old daughter, Sierra–and not get lost. It was so well-done and the transitions so smooth, that I never wondered, “Okay, who the hell is talking right now?” To be honest, I’m a little jelly and hope that at some point doing my own writing, that I’ll be able to pull something like this off. As usual, the love scenes were on a FI-YAH and I’m hoping that Sierra and Boone eventually get their own story.
Have you read anything else by Lorelei James? As mentioned above, I’ve read plenty. I’ve got two more of her titles on my Wish List and one in my Library that I’ll start reading next. But you can read all the others I’ve reviewed by clicking on the links below:

What was your first thought when it ended? Thank God Miz Carly is indie publishing this series!! I’d kind of forgotten about this series. Olivia had a fucked-up home life. I think the “near-bigamist dad” mentioned in the synop was a major understatement of the universe. That whole sitch was fucked up and I’d forgotten what her and her siblings had gone through. On that note, even though I’ve read a couple of other titles in this series, I’m looking forward to reading about the other family members (particularly Avery and her rockstar dude?). I also loved Dylan for his persistent pursuit of Liv and never giving up. She tried to shut him down, but he was all, “Fuck that. It’s on now!” LOL. Catching up with the other members of the Dare family was great as well. In a previous review, I wrote that Carly writes good shit. She does, and this book was no exception.
Have you read anything else by Carly Phillips? Most definitely!! And all of them were before I started this blog, so this is the second title of hers that’s been reviewed on here. You can read my review for DARE TO DESIRE.

Follow Friday #82

FF_2013Button-300x300

Question this week from Parajunkee and Allison Can Read.

How does this work? You follow a blog, they follow you. Win. Win. Just make sure to follow back if someone follows you! With that being said, please review my Follow Policy before making any rash decisions.

 

Do you post your reviews anywhere besides your blog? Where else do you post reviews?

 

No. For the longest time, I just posted them here. I was reading so much it was getting ridiculous and I just posted them on here to save time.

HOWEVER.

With the two most recent reviews this week, I posted the reviews on BN.com.

When I’m ready to review a book, I log in to my account, go to My Nook page and cut and paste the synop and book details. Since I was already there, I just decided to go ahead and post the reviews there.

What about you?

Peace, lurve, and wet panties,

Everyone needs to be rescued sometimes.

Everyone but Hannah Montgomery, that is. She just needs a vacation. Three weeks in New Zealand to sort out her life, figure out what she wants, seems just right. Oh, and to relax. She should definitely put that on the agenda. She certainly isn’t looking for a sexy fling with a professional rugby player, no matter how attractive he is. Hannah doesn’t do casual. But maybe just this once …

As much as he’s shared with Hannah, Drew Callahan has kept one very big secret. And learning the truth, now that she’s back home again, has made Hannah warier than ever. Drew knows that she’s right for him. But how can he convince her to let down her guard enough to explore what they could have together?

Note: This romance, like New Zealand, contains some steam. If that isn’t your cuppa, you may want to visit another country … er, book.

Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance
When and where did you buy this ebook? 1-5-15 as a free ebook deal through my Nook.
Did you finish it?  Yes
What was your first thought when it ended? Going to New Zealand and taking in a rugby game should be added to my Bucket List.  And while I loved reading about New Zealand and the finer points of rugby, I felt that it was just too much at times. Even when the facts were inserted as part of the dialogue, it was still too much. Like she was trying to pack as much information into the story as possible. Granted, it was interesting to read because Drew is a professional rugby player. Rugby is a sport that Americans aren’t familiar with, so I liked reading about it. But, again, it was just too much info dump. I felt that the background info on the country and the sport overshadowed the romance. On that same note, I would’ve liked to have gotten into Drew’s head more. The story was written in third person, but mostly from Hannah’s POV. In this format, I want to read what both characters are feeling/thinking/experiencing, and I don’t think Drew was represented enough.
Have you read anything else by Rosalind James? No, but I wouldn’t rule out reading the other books in this series.

Life of a Blogger #18: Achievements

lifeasblogger

It’s a weekly feature (on Thursday’s). Each week Jessi over at Novel Heartbeat will choose a subject and talk about that subject in her life. The topics will be non-bookish so that you can get to know her on a more personal level! She definitely encourages everyone to participate, too. She wants this to be meme style with a linky for you to add your posts to. She wants to know more about you guys as well!

1) Getting married.

2) Getting a college degree—17 years later!

3) Indie publishing my first two YA novels.

4) Being invited to do an author visit in Page, AZ. That was a little nerve-wracking.

5) Being invited to conduct a writeshop at a local writer’s conference. Another nerve-wracking experience.

6) Conducting a few writeshops for youth. Yet another nerve-wracking experience because you don’t know how the kids are going to react to you.

7) Obtaining 501(c)(3) status for the nonprofit I’m trying to start.

I consider my biggest achievement to be making the decision to leave one genre to write in another. That might seem odd because I know writers have a tendency to cross genres. But this is an achievement for me because it’s something I thought I would never do.

YA was going to be the end-all/be-all genre for me.

I unintentionally immersed myself in that world by watching teenybopper TV shows and going to see teenybopper-ish movies.

When my characters spoke to me, it was as the voice of a teen.

Until the one time I heard a voice that wasn’t. And kept hearing it.

Now, I’m finally doing something about it and creating this website was a start in that direction.

That’s not to say I’ll never go back to writing YA.

Eventually, maybe I’ll be able to go back and forth. Comfortably.

Until then, I’m leaving that door ajar and following the voices on the other side.

Peace, lurve, and wet panties,

31 days to Better Blogging – Day 19 : Change it Up

blogging-challenge

Are you ready for a Better Blog? Why not join others in a 31 day challenge of awesome? Do one task a day, or pick one a week. This is for you to increase your blog traffic, make your blog more user friendly, or just increase your awareness of your blog’s needs. Hosted by Rachel over at parajunkee.com.

But what happened to Days 16-18, you may ask? As I go through this challenge, I’m starting to realize that not all of the tasks will apply to me and what I’m doing here:

Day 16 Task – The task was to create a blogger buddy list. I don’t visit a lot of blogs as it is, but I do subscribe to some. When the time comes to garner reviews, I’ll create a list.

Day 17 Task – The task was to get a firm grip on your blogger goals and mission. I definitely don’t need that here.

Day 18 Task -To check out a new social network. Rachel was kind enough to list a few, and while I’ve heard of only one of them…no. Just. No. I can barely keep up with Twitter and Facebook. I think I even opened a Google+ account, but I’ve done nothing with it. The last thing I need to do is sign up for another social network that will get lost in the shuffle of things. Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest. That’s it for this girlio right here.

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m not a blogger in a traditional sense and a lot of the tasks are more geared towards traditional bloggers. Moving forward, I’m just going to post the tasks that apply to me. With that being said…

 

Today’s Task: To change something in your blogging routine.

I will be changing up my routine in two ways:

1) Participating in a new weekly meme – A fellow blogger started participating in Stacking the Shelves, a weekly meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews where people share what books they’ve added to their shelves, virtually or physically! I’ve been doing that on the weekly, what with all daily freebie ebook deals I get in my Inbox.

2) Adding a new weekly feature - Wet Panty Wednesdays will be a weekly homage to hunka-hunka burnin’ man flesh. Each month will be based on a different theme and every Wednesday, you’ll be able to drool over eye candy to help get you through the rest of the week. This new feature will debut next month and the theme, in honor of Black History Month, will be African-American men. You can view the list of themes (so far) HERE.

What about you? How are you changing up your blogging routine?

Peace, lurve, and wet panties,

Evolet
