Miss Apple Pants: Lost in Love (The Miss Apple Pants Series Book 2) by Charlotte Roth – Review by Robin Rankin

Lost in Love (The Miss Apple Pants series Book 2)Lost in Love by Charlotte Roth
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Lost in Love by Charlotte Roth is the second book in the Miss Apple Pants series. We catch up with Ella three years after the letters and Hans. So much has happened in that time. Alfred and Ava are now almost three and growing so fast. Ella has grown even closer with Martha and her family and then there is the trip to Europe.

I love Mrs. Rock even though I really didn’t want to at first. I think my favorite was Amsterdam. Ella has just done so much growing up, which she didnt have much of a choice but she is doing amazing as a young single mom.

I sincerely hope there is a third book in this series. I have things I want to know and they weren’t answered completely here. I’m so glad I found this series!

His First Lady by Avery Scott – Review by Robin Rankin

His First LadyHis First Lady by Avery Scott
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

His First Lady by Avery Scott had me from the very beginning. I loved Kendall and Michael and everything about their story. Though there were a few times I wanted to shake them to get them to wake up and talk with one another.

Michael a twice divorced batchelor has no plans to marry again, even if it will help him win the Presidency. He fights it tooth and nail and digs his heels in even though it was to his own detriment.

Kendall was working on the campaign as a speech writer and it ended up being so much more than a simple job. She fought her feelings as long as she could and fought admitting them even longer than that.

There was just something about the way they were together that I liked and would love to see more of them and their story. I wasn’t quite ready to let them go.

Yearning Young (Burning Britely Book 2) by Deidre Huesmann – Review by Robin Rankin

Yearning Young (Burning Britely #2)Yearning Young by Deidre Huesmann
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Yearning Young by Deidre Huesmann is the second book in the Burning Britely series. The more I read about Braeden and Jeff the more I fall in love with them.

Braeden is fiercely protective of the people he loves and he shows that time and time again, especially with his siblings. He doesn’t have the type of parents all kids deserve and should expect to have. He’s still trying to get everything figured out, his life, how to take care of his siblings, how to deal with his parents and how to keep Jeff safe.

Jeff is so lucky to have the parents he does. You don’t need money if you have the love and support of your family and that is what Jeff has. His mother made me laugh out loud a few times, his Dad is stoic but you have no doubts on his feelings for his son.

I want more of this series and adorable couple.

The Billionaire and the Therapist (Clean Billionaire Romance Reads Book 1) by Kim Koby – Review by Robin Rankin

The Billionaire and the Therapist (Clean Billionaire Romance Reads, #1)The Billionaire and the Therapist by Kim Koby
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Billionaire and the Therapist by Kim Koby is the first book in the Clean Billionaire Romance Reads. It was a sweet story, though I felt like it was a little too short and a few areas where she didn’t go into enough detail for my taste.

John has been dealing with the loss of his wife for two years now, but the way his daughter, Catherine has started handling it has him concerned and contacting a therapist who comes highly recommended.

Natalie is an amazing children’s therapist, she loves her job and has no idea what to expect when she meets John and Catherine. But she has a past she’s running from which could effect not only treating Catherine but everything.

I love my romance books and all that comes with them but I didn’t miss any of that here. It was actually kinda nice change.

I recommend giving this book a chance.

Burning Britely by Deidre Huesmann – Review by Robin Rankin

Burning BritelyBurning Britely by Deidre Huesmann
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Burning Britely by Deidre Huesmann was more than I expected it to be. When you are reading young adult it’s usually pretty cookie cutter but this book was anything but and for that I was so thankful.

Jeff Young is too smart and I don’t know if it’s because of his intelligence but he doesn’t do well with interacting with people. He even has a hard time with his best friend and parents. That starts to change after he starts to develop a friendship and crush on the school track star Braeden.

Braeden is a great guy, very protective of his family especially his siblings. He is looking for friendship with Jeff but there ends up being so many levels of that friendship.

I have the next book in this series ready to go in my kindle. Can’t wait to get started to see what happens next.

Coming Home: The Sequel to Flowers in December by Jane Suen – Review by Robin Rankin

COMING HOME (Flowers in December, #2)COMING HOME by Jane Suen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Coming Home: The Sequel to Flowers in December by Jane Suen has us catching up with Connor. He moves back to his hometown after he quits his job after the death of his mother. There so much that happens just after he gets back into town, including reconnecting with a neighbor after a significant amount of time.

Connor still doesn’t seem to have all of his timing in life back but he’s slowly getting there. But as anyone who has lost someone special the first of everything is the hardest and this is Connor’s first Christmas without his Mama.

I’m hoping to see more of Connor and to see if his timing with a young lady improves to the point of being in tune.

I have enjoyed the series so far even if there are some down parts.

Broken Sand Dollar (The Sand Dollar Series Book 3) by J.D. Boudreaux – Review by Robin Rankin

Broken Sand DollarBroken Sand Dollar by J.D. Boudreaux
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Broken Sand Dollar by JD Boudreaux is the third book in the Sand Dollar series. I have enjoyed follow Alex on his journey over the years. Of the three books this is my favorite, the changes in Alex are so amazing and he finally finds his happiness.

I saw some of myself in Alex, he was always taking care of everyone else instead of focusing on himself periodically and this is something I have found myself being guilty of. His reason comes from his childhood as does mine but I like his a lot more.

Alex isn’t the only one who has gone through changes. Actually pretty much everyone changes in some way. Some are bigger than others.

This was a great series and I hope to see more this Author in the future.

What She Lost and Found by M.L Garcia – Review by Robin Rankin

What She Lost And FoundWhat She Lost And Found by M.L. Garcia
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What She Lost and Found by M.L Garcia was a story that was hard to read at times only due to the subject matter. Ms. Garcia did a good job writing about a horrible and traumatic subject. This is one of the things about the book that actually left me without words. There is just no way to describe the agony Daniela dealt with for those years.

Daniela, a Senior at The University of Texas at Austin (Hook’em) hasn’t really lived her life until now. She slowly comes out of her shell and acts like someone her age inspite of all of the pain from her past.

So much happened in this book, most of it was great but there are also some very sad, tragic moments too. I loved seeing Daniela discover who she is and to find her happily ever after.

Claimed (The Torzial Affair Book 3) by Via Mari – Review by Robin Rankin

CLAIMED (The Torzial Affair Book 3)CLAIMED by Via Mari
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Claimed by Via Mari is third and final book in the Torzial Affair series. This is the second complete series have read by this author and haven’t been disappointed in anything. She developed a great alpha male as the lead while the lead female while submissive isn’t a push over by any stretch of the imagination.

Jenny has come so far since the garbage with Ty though the past isn’t quite done with her. She has been through so much and continues to impress.

Brian has done a lot of growing and changing through this series. The Brian in this book is opposite of the one we met in Chase and Katerina’s series.

There are a few people in the two series I would like to see have their very own series. Fingers crossed!

Vortex by Kimberly Packard – Review by Robin Rankin

VortexVortex by Kimberly Packard
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Vortex by Kimberly Packard grabbed me from the start and still hasn’t let go. If you want romance you will have a little. If you want a story that has multiple layers to it then I highly recommend this book.

Elaina was stupid for doing some of the things she did. I don’t think she realized what she was doing part of the time due to the memories taking over which was extremely dangerous in the middle of a tornado with other people around.

Seth is a really good guy who had one bad thing happen to him at the worse possible time. He’s trying to redeem himself and ends up chasing tornadoes in the middle of the Country.

I loved everything about Elaina’s dog, including his clever name. He would make me smile every time. There were some tears shed, moments of anger, sadness, fear and of course happiness. I don’t understand why people would put themselves in that kind of danger. My husband used to talk about wanting to go storm chasing and even though I would never stop him I wouldn’t encourage it either.

This book was worth every second I spent reading it.
