Review: Every Rose (Take a Chance #4) by Nancy Warren


This Rose Really Does Have Thorns!

Every Rose is #04 in the Take A Chance Series by Nancy Warren.

Teri Schnaubelt narrates the series.

HEA with No cliffhangers!

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

Length: 4 hrs and 42 mins

Content Advisory:
There is mild sexplay.

♥ Story ♥

This is about Rose who is referenced as being a General Practitioner Doctor but also as birthing hundreds of babies, so it is not quite clear as to what her specialty is. She works at a hospital in Portland, so its not as if she is a small town doc that ends up doing everything. And can I mention crazy for wearing Prada heels to work. Seriously! In reading the blurb, I was a bit disappointed in her attitude for being one of the Chase siblings. After listening to this book, however, it is not quite as it seems.

 

Rose ❤ Matt

 

Dr. Rose Chance is a very busy women, who doesn’t have room for love and dating in her life. She also has some chips on her shoulder to overcome. I give her credit for being proactive and productive in her life despite her self-delusions. She is attracted to the hot Greek Surgeon at work, but can’t seem to let go of her princess ideals. There are events that will force her to face things in a new light.

 

Dr. Mattius Vasilopolous also comes from a large close-knit family and is also too busy to even remember what day it is sometimes, or if he ate lunch. Matt and Rose have a lot in common and make for a great couple, and she makes him contemplate love at first site. I feel for the guy because it’s going to be an uphill climb to get over her castle walls.

 

Every Rose turned out better than the blurb lets on, which was great. There is nothing wrong with wishing for a fairy-tale, but one needs to be open to reality. There is a famous quote about life and plans for a reason. Some of the secondary characters are going to show up again if you take the time to read the blurbs of future books. I’m looking forward to them all!

Nancy Warren’s creativity continues to amaze. Once again she brings a unique medical sitution. It is a bit cringe worthy, the way a man holds his crotch when he sees another get hit in his, but it is definately one I have never heard of before.

Review: Dominated in Paradise by Cynthia Mendoza


My Reviews


The Elephant Shifter Prince, Book 2

Dominated in Paradise is part 2 of 2 of the The Elephant Shifter Prince, by Cynthia Mendoza.

Aster Breck narrates.

HFN ending

This is a 2 part story, so I recommend reading in order.

Length: 1 hr and 18 mins

Content Warning: This does have sex, very little, but its there.

♥ Story ♥

This title is currently available as part of the Audible Romance Package.

This is shorter than the first and still no interesting elephant stuff. Oh well.

Kelly still can’t decide if she wants to stay and have a fairy tale or go home and be boring and alone. Such a hard choice! I think the girl is crazy, but its not my choice. Prince Chakrii isn’t asking her to give up what she does for a living, he just wants to come first. He gives her everything and she is soo, stubborn. Chakrii deserve better! I don’t know if there is another one planned, but the ending feels more of a HFN than a HEA. This would of been better as one story rather than parts, with an added epilogue to tie it all up. Only time will tell if there is going to be a third part. All current parts are in the Audible Romance Package.

Review: Billionaire Seduction by Cynthia Mendoza


My Reviews


The Elephant Prince, Part 1

Billionaire Seduction is part 1 of 2 of the The Elephant Shifter Prince, by Cynthia Mendoza.

Aster Breck narrates.

HFN ending

This is a 2 part story, so I recommend reading in order.

Length: 1 hour and 24 minutes

Content Warning: This does have sex, very little, but its there.

♥ Story ♥

This title is currently available as part of the Audible Romance Package.

This is short and not quite what I have come to expect from Cynthia Mendoza. As elephants are known to have prehensile male parts, I was expecting something interesting. That did not come to pass, as this is your standard shifter tale.

Kelly is on a romantic holiday, which is a last ditch effort to mend things with her rocker boyfriend. He is a cheater that apparently never got caught red handed and is good at making excuses. A freak accident lands Kelly in the hands of a prince who is taken with her in an instant. Of course! This story ends with a HFN ending, but it does continue in part 2, so you may want to go ahead and get the whole series now so you can easily go on to part 2! All parts are in the Audible Romance Package.

This was entertaining but feels a bit all over the place. A lot of stay or go conflict with no clear direction or emotion. You feel for Prince Chakrii, but feeling like Kelly deserves him is a bit harder. I am looking forward to part 2 and a better resolution than what is currently being presented.

Cynthia Mendoza writes a lot of short fiction, that is great when it is just a singular title, but I would recommend looking for the series in a whole collection, which are out there.

Review: Intercepted by Love: Part 1 by Rachelle Ayala


My Reviews


First Steps in a New Romance!

Intercepted by Love: Part 1 is quite literally that, the first title in the Quarterback’s Heart Series out of 6, by Rachelle Ayala.

Chris Abell narrates.

Cliffhanger!
Cade and Andie’s story continues in Part 2.

Being the first, it could be read as a standalone, but I always advise to read in order to get the most out of the experience.

Length: 2 hrs and 54 mins

Content Warning: The author lists this series as (Steamy)

♥ Story ♥

This title is currently available as part of the Audible Romance Package. The ebook counterpart is available through the Kindle Unlimited program.

Cade Prescott is a professional quarterback hiding out after a Super Bowl loss, as well as other bad press. He meets Andie Wales in the library while she is doing research on bad boys of old. They may not have a love connection at first, but their dogs have no issue taking things to the next level. While dealing with the health and welfare of their future litter, things shift for these canine owners.

Cade’s past can’t be avoided, and there are others in town that also want to make a name for themselves. Particularly a co-worker that will inspire you to want to commit fictional violence. You can read my rant in my First Impressions post for more details.

This story ends in a cliffhanger, so you may want to go ahead and get the whole series now so you can easily go on to part 2! All parts are on the Audible’s Romance Package. I am going to have to do this myself, because I am impatient and I gotta find out how it all ends!

Review: Vacation Bride (Brides of Paradise #1) By Vicky Loebel


My Reviews


The Bachelor With A Bit Of Big Brother And Survivor Thrown In.

Vacation Bride is the first title in the Brides of Paradise Series by Vicky Loebel.

Emily Beresford narrates.

HEA, no cliffhangers!

Being the first, it could be read as a standalone, but I always advise to read in order to get the most out of the experience.

Length: 5 hrs and 6 mins

Content Warning: Per the authors site: (Series rated PG for just a touch of heat.)

♥ Story ♥

This title is now available as part of the Audible Romance Package. The ebook counterpart is available through the Kindle Unlimited program and includes a sneak peek at book #2.

This is a PG story, but still entertaining! The characters are endearing and make you want hear more so you can see how it turns out for the rest of the cousins.

Neither one of the main characters really want to be part of the “Vacation Bride“, but do so reluctantly to benefit their loved ones. I don’t blame them, because this show is completely ridiculous! The sad thing is, I can totally see girls doing this in real life. It’s basically a combination of several reality shows in one.

All participants get to bring one stylist with them, and our heroine, Anna,  brings her father. Not as disastrous as you would think. As with most reality dating show, most of the girls are B@#$hes to each other but sluts to the Bachelor, and that causes all kinds of crazy. The most crazy cake is taken by the Host of this lovely program. Trust me, she is evil! To prevent spoilers in this review, please see the Read Along  if you want more details.

It’s worth the credit if you don’t have a subscription to the Audible’s Romance Package. Book #2 is also in the plan and I can’t wait to listen!
