Happy Friday everyone!
My kids have made it to day 14 of not seeing anyone outside of my husband, mom, dad, brother, and myself. We are working on getting schooling ready for next week but it hasn't stopped me from getting some reading in.
This week, I technically have 5 books even though 3 of them are in a bundle.
So, let's get started.
First off I have the Grizzly Cove books by Bianca D'Arc. They were insta-love stories of bear shifters. Sweet, but lacked much action or conflict which I enjoy. They are great for quick reads.
The first three Grizzly Cove stories in one place!
Welcome to Grizzly Cove, where bear shifters can be who they are - if the creatures of the deep will just leave them be. Wild magic, unexpected allies, a conflagration of sorcery and shifter magic the likes of which has not been seen in centuries... That's what awaits the peaceful town of Grizzly Cove. That, and love. Lots and lots of love.
This anthology contains:
All About the Bear
Welcome to Grizzly Cove, where the sheriff has more than the peace to protect. The proprietor of the new bakery in town is clueless about the dual nature of her nearest neighbors, but not for long. It’ll be up to Sheriff Brody to clue her in and convince her to stay calm—and in his bed—for the next fifty years or so.
Tom, Grizzly Cove’s only lawyer, is also a badass grizzly bear, but he’s met his match in Ashley, the woman he just can’t get out of his mind. She’s got a dark secret, that only he knows. When ugliness from her past tracks her to her new home, can Tom protect the woman he is fast coming to believe is his mate?
Sheriff’s Deputy Zak is one of the few black bear shifters in a colony of grizzlies. When his job takes him into closer proximity to the lovely Tina, though, he finds he can’t resist her. Could it be he’s finally found his mate? And when adversity strikes, will she turn to him, or run into the night? Zak will do all he can to make sure she chooses him.
Next is the brand new release by T.M. Frazier, Pike! A great addition to the spin offs of the King Series. Dark, twisted,and not without a few good chuckles, Pike brings you back to Logan's Beach with a new story with all your favorite characters from the past.
**A King Series Spin-Off**
Born into chaos. Baptized in the gutter.
I was raised by the violent laws of the streets, spilling blood without the hindrance of useless emotions or connections.
Unfeeling. Unloved. Alone.
My life was perfect.
While on a manhunt for a mysterious enemy, one hellbent on taking both my business and my life, I find Mickey. She's covered in mud, rambling nonsense, and clearly out of her mind.
She's also a distraction I don't need.
That is until I discover a connection between the girl and my enemy.
Mickey isn't a distraction anymore.
She's the perfect weapon.
One I'll use to exact my revenge.
The plan is an easy one, but there's something about Mickey that's making it more and more difficult.
A familiarity I can't place. A need I can't explain.
A want I have to deny.
After all, she's not mine to keep. She's a tool. My pawn.
The last book I have is Burning Bridges by Mayra Statham. This is a fun read about falling for your older brother's friend. The only thing I found annoying is how it went from first person with the female character to third with the male. Other than that, it was a fun read.
Fireman Maverick Bridges doesn’t do complicated. All he needs are his firehouse brothers and an ice-cold beer after a long day. His life is turned upside down the moment he unknowingly sets his sights on the one woman he shouldn’t want.
Sofia Blanco is back in her hometown after a decade abroad. Her first night, she meets a man whose dark blue eyes promise the ability to deliver on a dirty and sinful night. A night that’s ruined when they find out she’s his best friend’s little sister and temporary housemate.
An instant attraction that is hard to resist quickly turns into steamy showers and Nutella-licking fun. But what happens when casual fun turns into more? Will they be able to walk through fire for one another?
