9781455599158_p0_v6_s260x420When old friends become new lovers…anything can happen.
Sexy, gifted, and loyal, PI Jacob Decker is a tall, cool drink of perfection who had Emmanuelle Holmes at “hello.” His relationship with Emme’s best friend kept them apart for years, but things have changed. Now that a case has brought him to Gnaw Bone, Colorado, the road is wide open for Emme and Deck to explore something hotter and deeper than Emme dreamed possible. So why is she sabotaging the best thing that’s ever happened to her?
It isn’t easy to catch Deck off guard, but Emme does just that when she walks back into his life after nine long years. The curvy brunette had her charms back in the day, but now she’s a bona fide knockout . . . and she wants to rekindle their friendship. Deck, however, wants more. Emme’s always been the one; she excites Deck’s body and mind like no other woman can. But a dark chapter from Emme’s past overshadows their future together. Now only Deck can help her turn the page-if she’ll let him . . .

What I’m reading ~ Rock Chick ~ Kristen Ashley

This is the first book in the Rock Chick series.

Indy Savage is a cop’s daughter and bookstore owner, she’s been in love with Lee Nightingale, and trying to catch his attention, since she was five. That was until ten years ago, when he told her that she was like his little sister, there was no chance anything was going to happen between them. She’s tried to get on with her life, but there one problem. No one else is Lee.

Now, she has trouble, one of her employees has lost a bag of diamonds and the people who it belongs to want it back. Badly enough that they started shooting at Indy and her employee. Lee’s willing to help, but he has a price. Can Indy bring herself to open up enough to let him in again?

 

What did I think?

I loved it. It was gripping in a way that kept me up until 3am, despite knowing I had to get up before six. I laughed, a lot. Bossy leading men really doesn’t do a whole lot for me, unless you pair it with a leading woman who doesn’t do what she’s told. I can’t wait to start the next book in the series. 4 stars


Still reading Kristen Ashley

I’m slowly working my way through her back list, one series at a time. I started with the Dream Man series and I was hooked, I can’t wait for the first book in the Chaos series to come out so I can see where the story goes next. I recently finished her Colorado Mountain series, and it was just as good, just as gripping, and hard to put down, and I’m ready for the next book in that series. I’m still having a hard time realizing that it’s 2am and I have to get up in less than four hours so that I can get a semi-decent amount of sleep, but the stories are so worth it. 

I plan to start the Rock Chick books tonight, we’ll see how functional I am in the morning.


What I’m reading ~ Dream Man series ~ Kristen Ashley

My latest reading obsession has been the Dream Man series by Kristen Ashley. I’ve just finished the third one, Law Man and every time I pick one up, I have a hard time putting it down for any reason. Last night, when I went to bed, I intended to read for twenty minutes or so, then go to sleep, because I had to get up early. I didn’t have a book I was in the middle of, so I started Law Man. I was immediately sucked in, and it wasn’t until about two hours later that I remembered I had to get up, by then I was going to get maybe four hours sleep.  Every book I’ve read in the series has been that way. I haven’t read any of her other series, but I plan to, she is just that good.
