Taming the Troublemaker (The Hills of Texas Book 3) by Kadie Scott – Review by Robin Rankin

Taming the Troublemaker (Hills of Texas, #3)Taming the Troublemaker by Kadie Scott
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Taming the Troublemaker by Kadie Scott is the third book in the Hills of Texas series. I loved everything about Autry and Beth’s story. From the way they reconnected (it is small town Texas and everyone has known everyone since birth) to the way it ended.

Autry is the bad boy of the Hill family. Being the second youngest in the large family he has to do something to get some attention and sometimes negative attention is better than nothing.

Beth is the middle sister who has always felt average in every way. She has always secretly had a crush on Autry but never did anything about it consciously.

There are a lot of laughs and a few emotional moments, I swear I didn’t cry this time. My eyes just started to sweat spontaneously.

I can’t wait to see which Hill sibling is next

Knights Who Won My Heart (Knights Series Book 4) by Sonya Jesus – Review by Robin Rankin

Knights Who Won My Heart (Knights, #4)Knights Who Won My Heart by Sonya Jesus
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Knights Who Won My Heart by Sonya Jesus is the fourth and final book in the Knights series. I was on the edge of my seat from about half way through until the very end. Cannot say enough good things about this book and series.

Holy cow a lot happens in this final installment with Lia and everyone else. Lots of twists and turns all the way through and the end will left me speechless and trying to just wrap my mind around it all.

This is not a book that can be read as a standalone, you have to read the first three and I don’t think you will regret that decision. I know I don’t. Ms. Jesus was a new to me author when I found this series but I know for certain I will be keeping an eye out for other books and series by her.

Vantage Point (A Gray Ghost Novel Book 4) by Amy McKinley – Review by Robin Rankin

Vantage Point (Gray Ghost #4)Vantage Point by Amy McKinley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Vantage Point by Amy McKinley is the fourth book in the Gray Ghost series. Like the others in this series I had a hard time putting it down.

I have a thing for the strong alphas and Hawk definitely fits that description. He has a strong protective instinct especially when it comes to Stella. It was so strong it kicked in before he knew her name and the trouble she has coming her way.

I think my favorite thing about this series is the relationship the men have with one another. There is always such a spotlight on women and their friendships but not too often do you get a glimpse of how deep that runs with men too.

I love this series and looking forward to the next one.

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.
