Kiss a Girl in the Rain is #01 in the Take A Chance Series by Nancy Warren.

Teri Schnaubelt narrates the series.

HEA with No cliffhangers!

These are about the members on the Chase family. I suggest reading them in order to get the best expirence.

Length: 5 hrs and 8 mins

Content Advisory:
There is mild sexplay, so if that bothers you then you should avoid.

Ebook currently free on Kindle.

♥ Story ♥

This is the first full title in the Take A Chance Series. All of the full titles focus on one of the 11 siblings of the Chance family. First up is Evan. He is in the upper middle of the brood.

Evan ❤ Caitlyn

Evan Chance is turning 35. His mom gives him the bucket/to-do list he wrote when he was 12. Aside from being rich, he hasn’t accomplished much else. A tragedy close to his heart, makes him realize that there is not always another day. He decides to quit his lucrative job as a corporate lawyer and set out to complete his list. He doesn’t get far before fate sets him on a different path. A mop of a dog runs in front of his bike and that starts a whole new adventure. The town he finds himself in, just won’t let him escape. It’s in a funny way, not a creepy children of the corn kind of way.

Caitlyn Sorenson is the local doctor. She took over her grandfather’s practice. Evan ends up on her doorstep with the dog, because the sheriff was trying to play a prank on her when he says she’s a vet not a people doctor. Of course she is taken with the hunky biker, but tries to be professional. Evan doesn’t make it easy for her to resist by putting his lawyering skills to use.

EVAN’S AMAZING LIFE LIST
Make a million dollars before age 30.
Ride a motorcycle across the country
Kiss a girl in the rain
Run a marathon
Learn Spanish
Have sex with a woman!
Learn to play an instrument
Travel to India
Fly a plane
Scuba dive a ship wreck
Swim in every ocean
Swim with dolphins
Hike the Grand Canyon
Leave the world a better place than I found it

The angst is low, which I appreciate. The two love birds do face some settling down issues. I think Caitlyn is a bit of a late grower in that department, but it all works out in the end. We get to meet a good chunk of the other siblings in the beginning of this story. I look forward to all of their stories!

My ReviewsWhere it all began!

Chance Encounter is #0.5 in the Take A Chance Series by Nancy Warren.

Teri Schnaubelt narrates the series.

HEA with No cliffhangers!

There is no sex, just good chemistry.

♥ Story ♥

This is a Prequel to the whole Take A Chance Series. It’s a short novella that let you see just how Jack and Daphne met. Their names are so close to Jack and Diane that I can’t help myself from calling them that. Please keep in mind the time frame of this story. Things that are acceptable today, were very much NOT in the 70’s.

Daphne ❤ Jack

All of this story takes place on June 17, 1976 upon a Greyhound bus heading from California to Oregon. 18 yr old Daphne is on her way to live with her great aunt after finding herself in an unplanned family way. Jack is on his way to Eugene in an effort to re-write his life story. These two just connect and its quite touching.

Its short but insightful. I will probably want to go back and re-listen to Chance Encounter, after I’m finished with #4 because it will probably carry more weight at that point. It’s a great bonus to this delightful series. Take a Chance!

Review: The RED Wolf (Werewolves On HEAT #02) by Ellie Valentina

My ReviewsHeat, Heart, And Secrets!

The RED Wolf is #02 of 03 in Werewolves On Heat Series by Ellie Valentina.

Meghan Kelly narrates the series.

HEA with No cliffhangers!

These are all in the same world, however I have yet to find any other connections. As of now, reading them as standalones should be OK.

Length: 4 hrs and 47 mins

♥ Story ♥

I was not able to find any direct character, location, or group connections between books one and two. If anyone has other info on that, please let me know. Both have werewolves as well as the heroine having majorly F*d up family situations. Josephine’s family life is not as heart breaking as Ava’s, but just as suspenseful.

Josephine ❤ Edward

Josephine Lancaster had a one night stand at her BFF’s wedding that left behind a gift of its own. Before she could process that fact, her father let drop his plans to be marry her to his much older business partner for better financial gain. Horrified, Josie ran and ended up getting a job with the last person she could of imagined, the father of her baby. Despite her bravery in avoiding a sham of a marriage, she turns into a big chicken when it comes to telling her baby-daddy the truth.

Edward Jake Hunter has secrets and trust issues of his own. After being used and manipulated for his gifts in the past, he is suspicious of most. Jake owns a construction business and is in desperate need of a new assistant, and is shocked to find the beautiful wedding fling as a potential hire. He wants her as much as before, but has reservations. Being the most qualified, he has no choice but to hire her. He knows she is hiding something, but is hoping its not as sinister as past experiences.

One might think they know how this is going to play out, but you would be wrong. The RED Wolf is so much more. There are several twist you won’t see coming. The secrets flow out at the speed of molasses, which can be a bit frustrating. It pays off if you can hold on and you will be left on the edge of your seat in the interim. There is heat and heart, and you won’t be disappointed. I was hoping for a side character to be the focus of the third book, but sadly, I don’t think that is the case. Maybe one will show up in a future book or spin-off series. Fingers crossed! 🤞

Review: The Sheikh’s Secret Son (Sharjah Sheikhs #3) by Leslie North

My ReviewsHidden Agendas & Babies!

The Sheikh’s Secret Son is #3 of the Sharjah Sheikhs Series
by Leslie North.

Nicholas Thurkettle narrates.

HEA, NO cheating, no cliffhangers!

Even though these are listed as being able to be read as standalones, they are connected by characters. I always advise to read in order to get the most out of the experience.

Length: 3 hrs and 8 mins

Content Warning
SEX?: OH YEAH! Both in thoughts and actions, so if you do not like sex, then you should avoid.

♥ Story ♥

This is the last book in the Sharjah Sheikhs Series. Last but not least to the table is middle brother Zaid. Lucky for him, the precedent for choosing your own bride has already been set! The Sheikh’s Secret Son ebook is part of the Kindle Unlimited program.

 

Zaid ❤ Rebecca

 

Sheikh Zaid Al-Qasimi has a secret past that has secrets of its own! He never forgot his affair with the beautiful American five years ago, however time and circumstance made it practically impossible for them to have more. He is surprised but happy to see her in the palace with the diplomatic tour. Zaid’s attempts to pick-up where they left off falls flat, and it doesn’t take too long for him to find out why.

 

Rebecca Reid had a wondrously short affair with a sexy Sheikh, 5 years ago! She finds him hard to forget, especially when she sees his eyes every night when she reads them a bedtime story. She has a political agenda of her own, but it doesn’t include letting Zaid know of his son! Pretty F*d up considering how much of a brat she is to him when she first gets there. You know what they say about assuming?! Donkey City!

 

 

Despite the rough start to their reunion, they eventually work it out, that they are on the same team. They have to rally if they want to save Zaid’s people and economy as well their son. Lots of good plot twists to close out the series! The last few paragraphs of the story are the BEST! Even though I wanted to slap Rebecca in the back of the head a couple of times for being so rude, this is still my ♥ Favorite ♥ of the three! Lots of heart!

 

“It doesn’t have to stop ever,” …
… “I have you now, and I will always have you.”
— Zaid

Leslie North loves her Sheikhs, and I am perfectly good with that! This was a very satisfying set of brothers. Sharjah Sheikhs: The Complete Series was released in March, so makes it a Definite buy/credit choice!

I forgot to change my speed back to 1 after my last audiobook, (so wished it reset automatically if you are starting at page one). I ended up listening @ 0.95 speed, which sounded fine. Don’t be afraid to experiment.

Review: Acceptable Risk (Chattanooga Supernaturals #3) By Candace Blevins

My ReviewsA Woman + A Hot Leopard + 2 Sexy Wolves = Yum!

Acceptable Risk is #3 in the Chattanooga Supernaturals Series
by Candace Blevins.

Noah Michael Levine narrates.

HEA, NO cheating, no cliffhangers!

This could be taken as a standalones, but they are connected by characters. I always advise to read in order to get the most out of the experience.

Length: 2 hours and 57 minutes

Content Warning: This is a Reverse Harem. SEX! Lots! And it gets kinky! So if you do not like that sort of stuff, then you should avoid.

 

♥ Story ♥

This is a True Reverse Harem. All the men are there to please Bethany. They do not have sex with each other. Acceptable Risk features characters from previous books in this series as well as those from both the Rolling Thunder Motorcycle Club Series and the Safeword Series.

Bethany wants a harem like her friend Cassie, but just for right now. This girl has some relatioship issue! Mac, Jonathan, and Ranger are the men that are willing to extend that offer to our heroine. They have some issues of their own. The biggest being that they are supernaturals! Bethany freaks out more over the “mine” thing than the “furry” thing.

This is a short listen with a LOT of steam, but manages to have a lot of heart too! I like how caring the guys were. They were willing to talk Bethany through everything. That right there is the biggest fantasy part of the whole story !
