First Impressions: Intercepted by Love: Part 1

First ImpressionsThere will be cursing!

This is a rant, for character stabbing, I apologize now for there will be cursing!

Please don’t misunderstand this rant as the book being bad. No, this is a 5 stars, do read.

This is a rant of rage that characters evoke on your soul as you read.

I will try to clean this up once done with the appropriate symbols, but I want to punch a b@#$h so bad right now!

This chick is supposed to be her friend? Oh hell no!

She was all too eager to let stuff slide when she wanted to f@#k the guy, but now that he is f@#$%^g her “friend” she’s gone all hostile!

The dude is embarrassed and hiding away from the paps. Cut him some slack! So he used a fake name and a fake story, but damn, just about every celebrity out there does it. I’d assume her brother that gets bad press is the douchebag that did Andie wrong. Cause he sounded as s@#$%y of a person this chick turns out to be.

I would of told the b@#$h I was going to sue her for all that money she is getting for the story and that she better hope she has no skeletons in her closet, because I’m going to dig them the f@#k up right now. Oh, and if she said stupid s@#t to make a more juicy story, I would start making up s##t about her and my “working conditions”.

Seriously, I would make it just as unpleasant for that c@#t as she was making it for me.

I can’t believe this is going to be in six parts!!!!!!! I’m not going to make it!

The new b@#$h at the end is going to be extra people I’m going to want to fictionally punch in the face, I just have the feeling in my gut!

I will probably need the time in-between the books to calm down! So that will have to hold me over why I wait for the last two to be completed in audio, which has been confirmed by the author (Rachelle Ayala) and the narrator (Chris Abell) that it will happen! So be on the lookout for it!

It’s good writing, just be prepared to want to commit character murder before the book is over!

A full proper review will come soon, after I have a chance for the murderess rage to subside and can write it without cussing! πŸ™‚

Intercepted by Love: Part 1

Review: Ryker (Bad Boys for Hire #1) byΒ Rachelle Ayala

My Reviews
I asked for more and I got it!

This is the 1st in the Bad Boys for Hire Series. I previously listened/reviewed book #2 Ken.

β™₯ Story β™₯
Terri “Terr” Martin is turning 30 and needs a date! She calls the Bad Boys for Hire agency to hire a biker to accompany her to the party her mother is throwing for her. She wants to make a ripple in the pond, not show up with a respectable date. Terry runs her own florist shop to her mother’s dismay who is always trying to set her up with someone that will raise the social status of the family.

Ryker is a marine, who just so happens to be a biker, sidelined by a war injury trying to find a job, and it’s not going well. After an awkward if not embarrassing standoff, Ryker ends up working for Terri. Their chemistry is on fire, but when the meddling mother comes to visit/coerce her into a date, Ryker recognizes a woman from his past and all the pieces fall into place.

Secrets start pouring out, and they are juicy! Seems they have a lot more in common than once thought, and their pasts coming roaring back with a vengeance. The story ends so far from where you think when you first start, but trust me, It’s so worth it!

β™₯ Author β™₯
This is my second read by Rachelle Ayala and I am so not disappointed! I can’t wait for the 3rd book to make it to audio!

β™₯ Narrator(s) β™₯
Chris Abell also narrates this title. My opinion of who his voice reminds me of still stands, but I was so enthralled with the story and what was going to happen that I cannot say much more about his performance which should say everything about the job he did!

Read Along With Me: No Ordinary Billionaire Part 01

Read Along With Me
@ Chapter 01

Funeral!!!!!! What?!

Patrick? Who’s Patrick?
Mrs. Scott you got me stressing and I’m not even a page in!

So this is Dante Sinclair’s book. Which I’m sure you knew already.
He’s a Detective, and I’m sure a HOT one.

Only half-way through the chapter and I already got the feels for this man.

Let’s all together now give Dante a big group hug!

We β™₯ you Dante!

Yay! Grady! We β™₯ you too!

@ Chapter 02

Sooo…. We meet our heroine, Dr. Sarah Baxter.

Mrs. Busy Body, the town gossip Elsie Renfrew is hinting to the story line possibilities.
Regardless of the fact that Sarah doesn’t seem to be interested in all the destiny talk and matchmaking efforts, I’m all for!

I have a feeling we will see Elsie’s partner in crime, Beatrice Gardener, not only later in this story but quite possibly in future stories.

Awe… They β™₯ Dante too!

Ooooo… House Calls. That has sexy time written all over it!

So Sarah is 27 and a Doctor. She has mentioned early advancement in school, so I ‘m sure there is a longer story there.

@ Chapter 03

Boo! No Smexy Shower!

Applause for the random trivia!
No one seems to truly appreciates it, unless it’s trivia night at the bar.

Yes. You are an asshole.
Now think about how you can make it up to her!

Now we are getting somewhere!

Review: Ken (Bad Boys for Hire, Book 2) by Rachelle Ayala

My Reviews
I love it and want more!

This is number 2 in the Bad Boys for Hire series, and my first of this series, and author. I do want to read number one now and definitely am looking forward to number 3. I also want to read other titles by this author.

I loved this story. It’s so much more than a man rescuing a damsel in distress. Both Ken and Jolie have their own issues in life to work out so that they can move on in love and living. Ken has always been living but hasn’t taken the time to love. Jolie has taken the time to love, but on her terms. She has never truly lived which forces her to inner reflect if she has truly loved.

Ken is the equivalent of Jerry O’Connell from Stand By Me. He was a chubby child that grew up to be a super fit hottie! He took a big header while surfing and while his career is on hold so his head can heal, we moonlights as a Bad Boys for Hire! Yes, it’s an escort service, but sex is specifically a no-no and is written into the contract.

Jolie is a bride without a groom! Her intended was caught literally with his pants down the night before the wedding by her bridesmaids, so in an attempt to keep Jolie from looking foolish, Ken is hired to be a stand-in.

Ken recognizes Jolie from their childhood school days and now that he is no longer the pumpkin boy, he wants to see if he can get her to fall for him. Jolie on the other hand has no clue this fit and fabulous man before her is that same little boy that was in her play at school so long ago.

I completely adored Ken’s interactions with his sister, Carol, who fell off a mountain while climbing it during a winter storm, and now is in a wheelchair. He was an awesome brother and friend and I look forward to the next book which features Carol in her own HEA!

Chris Abell was excellent in his narration. Both male and female characters were completely believable and it was easy to get lost in the story. He does remind me a bit of Casey Kasem but unless you are in your thirties or older, you probably have no idea whom I’m talking about.

I give this 5 of 5 stars, and recommend it especially as a palate cleanser for in between the heavier, more dark reads.

Review: Ken (Bad Boys for Hire Series, Book 2) by Rachelle Ayala

Review: The Billionaire’s Christmas by J. S. Scott

My Reviews
Good Start to the Series

This is just a novella, so it is considered number 0.05 of the series, but it’s still the beginning.

We get a good introduction to the Sinclair family as we start with Grady, the Amesport Beast.

This short story is a play on the Beauty and the Beast classic, minus the fantasy elements. Grady Sinclair is our Beast and Emily Ashworth is our Beauty. There is still a castle of a house and hiding hero, but Grady is not quite as beastly as he is made out to be. He is just a recluse with a social anxiety issue. Our Beauty, however, does make a deal out of desperation.

Grady is adorkable and totally going on my book boyfriend list!

By the end of the book, all the Sinclair children have been introduced. It is not totally clear on their birth order, but the prologue leads to a different impressions than the epilogue does.

There are characters mentioned that are part of another series by J. S. Scott, so if you have read The Billionaire’s Obsession Series, some people in this one will be familiar to you. Given how tight these boys are, I wonder if Grady has already shown up in that series. It is quite possible that all the Sinclair siblings have made appearances, but I have not read that one yet.

The narrator Elizabeth Powers is excellent, however the volume level of the recording is not consistent. The whispers that are used to represent the heroine thoughts, get so low to the point that the volume needs to be raised to hear what is being said. This consistently takes you out of the story because of the need to constantly adjust the volume, which is not always easy to do on certain devices.

Overall I give this 5 of 5 stars! And can’t wait to get started on the next one!
