Review ...The Trouble with Mistletoe by Jill Shalvis

The Trouble With Mistletoe
by Jill Shalvis

If she has her way . . .

Willa Davis is wrangling puppies when Keane Winters stalks into her pet shop with frustration in his chocolate-brown eyes and a pink bedazzled cat carrier in his hand. He needs a kitty sitter, stat. But the last thing Willa needs is to rescue a guy who doesn’t even remember her . . .

He’ll get nothing but coal in his stocking.

Saddled with his great-aunt’s Feline from Hell, Keane is desperate to leave her in someone else’s capable hands. But in spite of the fact that he’s sure he’s never seen the drop-dead-gorgeous pet shop owner before, she seems to be mad at him . . .

Unless he tempers “naughty” with a special kind of nice . . .

Willa can’t deny that Keane’s changed since high school: he’s less arrogant, for one thing—but can she trust him not to break her heart again? It’s time to throw a coin in the fountain, make a Christmas wish—and let the mistletoe do its work . . .

**I received an ARC for an honest review.**

I have read a few books by this author and this one did not disappoint. It was a great, although early, holiday read. I love the holiday cheer that was consistent throughout this book. 

Willa was definitely one of those leading ladies that you fall in love with. She turned her life into something great and respectable considering the cards she was dealt early in life. Her love and passion for helping those around her was a great trait that I liked about her. 

Keane was definitely another favorite of mine. I hated that he was so hard on himself about the kind of person he was. He didn't even notice the small things that made his a great guy. When he finally realized what he was capable of love, Willa was having second thoughts on what she was capable of. There was a little back and forth waffling on emotions for each character, but for the most part they figured their stuff out. 

This was a quick, sexy and sweet read and I would recommend reading it if you are in the holiday mood early this year.

Cover Reveal ... Whatever it Takes by Stephanie Smith


Title: Whatever It Takes (Try Again, #4)
Author: Stephanie Smith
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: November 17, 2016


Can a dream really become a reality?

Georgia Armstrong is on the hunt—on the hunt for a man. It’s not what you think, though. She’s not looking for love, friendship or companionship. Georgia wants a baby, and she’s on the hunt for a sperm donor. Except her plan is to have the sperm donated the good old-fashioned way. What could possibly go wrong?

Henry Marsh knows what he wants, and a wife and family are not it. He doesn’t know where the little blonde bombshell came from, and he doesn’t know what she was thinking when she came up with her plan. And he especially doesn’t know why he agreed to help her.

Business quickly turns into pleasure and the lines are blurred as Henry and Georgia begin to break all the rules.

How far will Georgia go to become a mother, and what will it cost her? And has Henry finally put his member some place he shouldn't?



Each book in the Try Again series can be read as a standalone!

From the New York Times bestselling authors of Stuck-Up Suit and Cocky Bastard, comes a sexy new standalone novel.

Money or love? Which would you choose? 

You probably just answered the question in your head thinking it's an easy decision.

For me, it's not. Did I mention it's a lot of money? A hell of a lot.

I needed to go far away to think it through.

As I embarked on an impulsive trip, I hit a detour when I met sexy Carter in the airport lounge. We struck up a heated conversation.

Then, he left.

I thought I'd never see him again.

But fate had other plans.

Surprise! He was the pilot of my flight.

The bigger surprise was the adventure that followed after the plane landed.

Carter was dangerous and always on the move.

Even though our connection was magnetic, I knew it was only temporary.

He would give me tickets, and I would follow him around the world to exotic places.

A bevy of flight attendant exes and rumors about Carter's reputation were never far behind.

I didn't know what to believe.

But I was addicted. Nothing else mattered anymore. And I was going to get hurt. Because a part of me wanted to be the one to finally ground the playboy pilot.

At the very least, he was taking me on a thrilling ride.

All good things must come to an end, right?

Except our ending was one I didn't see coming.

5 Stars

**I received and ARC for an honest review.**

Another great book written by these two great authors. I enjoy both of their work individually and I really LOVE their combined work. I will always be on the look out for more from these two. 

I really enjoyed the way The Beatles was woven into this story, it made the story all the better for me. I loved the way Carter used songs for any given situation and I loved that he sang and hummed.  It was one of my favorite traits of his...the other was his dirty sexy ways. 

This book was pretty light and fun with a little bit of heavy and emotional mixed in. The relationship with Carter and Kendall seemed to go full speed ahead, but it felt right and not rushed. I loved that both of them felt the immediate connection and I loved how it grew from their. The fact that both of them were so open and honest with each other was very refreshing. There was no guessing on either of their parts on what was in their pasts. Sometimes Carter's past was a little in your face, but it really was needed to appreciate the person that he showed Kendall and the citizens at Silver Shores ;). 

The panty sniffing, dirty talking, playboy pilot did not disappoint in his sexy ways. I loved the way he talked dirty to Kendall and I love that she responded immediately. When they had their first kiss I could feel the sexual tension. When things escalated I could really feel the sexual tension. When the sexual tension turned into hot steamy sex, well that was a really enjoyable part.

This is most definitely a MUST read in my opinion.
