Wolf Trouble – Paige Tyler

24763130| GOODREADS | AMAZON | MY RATING: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥|

Goodreads synopsis: He’s in trouble with a capital T…

There’s never been a female on the Dallas SWAT team and Senior Corporal Xander Riggs prefers it that way. The elite pack of alpha male wolfshifters is no place for a woman. But Khaki Blake is no ordinary woman.

When Khaki walks through the door attractive as hell and smelling like heaven, Xander doesn’t know what the heck to do. Worse, she’s put under his command and Xander’s protective instincts go on high alert. When things start heating up both on and off the clock, it’s almost impossible to keep their heads in the game and their hands off each other…


My thoughts: I´m still kind of uncertain when it comes to the genre fantasy/shapeshifters. It´s a little to much make believe for my taste but I still need to say that I really enjoy this series. How weird am I? And a hypocrite! Because I can read and enjoy books about worlds that is so far fetched that make these books look like reality, and still I have problem with them. And I blame the Twilight hysteria of 2008 and forward. I read some of the books before they even was a thought about make them into movies, loved them. When the films came out the hysteria around it wanted to make me gag and ever since I have had such problems with vampires, werewolfs and what not. But i´m trying. There is so many good books out there that I want to take part of.

I did like this book more than the first one. I think it is because the story is a little bit more exciting with the stalker and forbidden attraction and what not. But I would have liked to see/feel more from Khaki since she is a new wolf. Only three months in and I feel she took way to easy on the whole situation. At least one freak out would have made it a little more believable.

I do feel a larger connection with the characters this time. Most of them I have meet before in the first book and I really start to love some of the guys in the group and I can hardly wait to read there own books.

Overall an easy read. Doesn’t make your heart beat to hard and fast and you don’t loose any sleep over it but it is still a great read that I could recommend to those who would like this kind of books.

14 Weeks – Jessica Gadziala

33950707| GOODREADS | AMAZON | MY RATING: ♥ ♥|

Goodreads synopsis: I was a bit of a wild child.
I had a past.
I had gotten into trouble.
All that was behind me, though.
And for the first time in my life, trouble had found me.

When the other private investigators wouldn’t help me, I found the huge, hulking Tig willing to lend his expertise. What I didn’t expect was the growing attraction between us or the crazy series of events that would put our budding relationship to the test.


My thoughts: Well, the book is okay. I got myself through it. But it was not one of my favorites which is to bad. I do really like Gadziala and her books but obviously, I can’t like them all. And this one is not on the top of the list.

I didn’t really like Kenzi. I understand that she wanted to be strong and independent but you don’t have to be a bitch about it. And since it was such an focus on her strength and attitude I felt that Tig just got lost. And the constant repeating of thoughts about them self and each other was a little irritating and later on just boring. When they started a rant about there feelings och thoughts and questions (that they have already ranted about before) I started to skim read. And I hardly never skim read Gadzialas books, even if it´s not one of my favorites. And that just show how unenthusiastic I was about the book.

The story is nice but i would have liked to read more about the abduction because that really was no suspense at all. And I did have ha feeling from the start which made it easy for me to figure out what is what and how. And the part with Kenzie and Cass in the park was just fantastic. I loved that part and I needed that. It probably saved the book a star.

I really liked Reese though and she was hardly not there the entire book. But she is a character I probably will completely love when I get to her book. She will get her man in the Henchman series and there I still have book nr 8 to read before I can read about Reese and she is in book nr 9. But i´m really looking forward to it.

DNF – Abandon – Blake Crouch


Goodreads synopsis:
On Christmas Day in 1893, every man, woman, and child in a remote gold mining town disappeared, belongings forsaken, meals left to freeze in vacant cabins – and not a single bone was ever found. One hundred thirteen years later, two backcountry guides are hired by a history professor and his journalist daughter to lead them into the abandoned mining town, so they can learn what happened. With them is a psychic and a paranormal photographer, as the town is rumored to be haunted. A party that tried to explore the town years ago was never heard from again. What this crew is about to discover is that twenty miles from civilization, with a blizzard bearing down, they are not alone, and the past is very much alive.


My thoughts:
I could not finish this one. I could not even get myself longer than 20% in the book. This because the writing is so, so bad. It is seriously terrible. There are weird formulations, words are split up in a way that makes the reading choppy. And me who not even has the English as a first language can ignore all the wrongs. And I am not an Grammar Nazi. Not even in my own language and I can read and like books with bad grammar. But this is just to much. And then I started reading some reviews and found out that I really don´t miss anything. And it is to bad, because the plot was really exciting and probably can be by another author. So now I don’t feel so bad anymore for not finishing this book and can go on with a book that I hopefully will like. 🙂

Murder list – Julie Garwood

107769.jpg| GOODREADS | AMAZON | MY RATING: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥|

Goodreads synopsis: When Chicago detective Alec Buchanan is offered a prime position with the FBI, it is the perfect opportunity to leave the Windy City and follow in his brothers’ footsteps to the top echelons of law enforcement. But first he must complete one last assignment (and one that he is not too happy about): acting as a glorified bodyguard to hotel heiress Regan Hamilton Madison. The gorgeous exec has become entangled in some potentially deadly business. Someone has e-mailed her a graphic crime-scene photo–and the victim is no stranger.

Regan suspects that the trouble started when she agreed to help a journalist friend expose a shady self-help guru who preys on lonely, vulnerable women. In fact, the smooth-as-an-oil-slick Dr. Lawrence Shields may be responsible for the death of one of his devotees, which was ruled a suicide. Hoping to find some damning evidence, Regan attends a Shields seminar.

At the gathering, the doctor persuades his guests to partake in an innocent little “cleansing” exercise. He asks them to make a list of the people who have hurt or deceived them over the years, posing the question: Would your world be a better place if these people ceased to exist? Treating the exercise as a game, Regan plays along. After ten minutes, Shields instructs the participants to bring their sheets of paper to the fireplace and throw them into the flames. But Regan misses this part of the program when she exits the room to take a call–and barely escapes a menacing individual in the parking lot.

The experience is all but forgotten–until the first person on Regan’s list turns up dead. Shock turns to horror when other bodies from the list start to surface, as a harrowing tango of desire and death is set into motion. Now brutal murders seem to stalk her every move–and a growing attraction to Alec may compromise her safety, while stirring up tender emotions she thought she could no longer feel. Yet as the danger intensifies and a serial killer circles ever closer, Regan must discover who has turned her private revenge fantasies into grisly reality.


My thoughts: This was really an 3.5 in rating but since you can’t choose half stars at Goodreads I rounded up to four stars. Just so you know. 😉

This is the fourth book about the Buchanan-Renard family. This is about Alec, who (if i’m remembering correctly) we have not met in the earlier books. The book is an typical romantic suspense in the kind of old school feeling. We meat a strong woman who is just a little to nice to everyone around her and never puts her self first. We got that man who is strong, large and everything it seems a woman seeks in a man. He is her bodyguard, she just tries to stay sane and together they fall in love. Yeah you know. The same old story in a new way.

Anyway, it was a good book. Not great but not bad either. It was a little to slow but I like that even if the murder story was slow, it was also slow between Alec and Regan. They did not jumped in bed the first thing and the emotions grew between them first. It felt real and sweet and made the story just better. If it had not been because of the “real life” feeling, the book would have not been that great.

I could not say that this is the best book in the series so far, but i do really love Garwoods writhing. It is warm and you just get that fuzzy good feeling when you read one of here books. And I am still gonna read all the book in this series.

So September is over and it is time to see an short summary over what I have been reading this month. I read and listening on 11 books this month.

Twisted – Mandi Beck

34820438| GOODREADS | AMAZON | MY RATING: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ |

Goodreads synopsis: Three friends walk into a bar . . . One walks out the fake girlfriend of a hot, bearded Scotsman.

Fannin McGuire is up for promotion at Tate and Cane Enterprises, but first she has to make it through her stepsister’s wedding. To Fannin’s ex. Yep. Her ex-fiancé is about to be her new brother-in-law. One big happy family. And lucky her, she also gets to work with him.
While Fannin is putting all of her energy into her career, her ex is putting all of his energy into making her life hell. Just when Fannin is sure she’ll be attending the wedding without a plus one, in walks Jasper James to save the day. He’s the bartender at the Iron Flask, the account she’s trying to land, and everything she didn’t know she needed or wanted. Before Fannin knows what’s happening, Jasper is playing knight in shining armor and she likes it. And him. A lot. With his smooth Scottish accent, ridiculously good looks, and that beard? She doesn’t stand a chance.
Jasper isn’t in the habit of rescuing anyone. But when Fannin is confronted by her ex about her lack of a date for his upcoming nuptials, Jasper can’t help but step in. Her wild hair, violet eyes, and killer legs have him doing a few things he normally wouldn’t. Never mind that he shouldn’t be getting involved with the woman in charge of making the bar a global success.
Their fake relationship becomes more real than either thought it would. Now they’re at the mercy of their feelings when truths are twisted, and the lies don’t taste as smooth as the whisky


My thoughts: This was so great. I mean, it was funny, sexy as hell and an exciting story. My only complain about it is really that it was way to short. I want more. I wanted the time to really get to know Jasper and Fannin. I wanted the time so that Fannins ex really could get that “up yours” because what a prick. I did not feel satisfied with it all. It just was to short.

But if we not are focusing on that, the book it self was great. Great writing which is easy and flowing. There is humor and the way it is written just makes you smile trough out the book. The author did a great job and if it was at least 100 pages more I would be so happy. The first sex scene was a little to much for me but I just skim read that part.

Everyday things

Some new books

I try not to buy eBooks more than four (isch) times a year. That’s because I don’t want to have to many books on my kindle since it gets hard for me later one to choose which book to read. And if I don’t limiting my self I would buy books all the time.  Of course there is exceptions. Like when my favorite author releases a new book or I find something new that I just have to read like right now. But i try not to surf my bookstores or Goodreads to much between my shopping sprees. I do not count in buying physical books into this so I do buy books more than four times a year. But I try to keep the lid on my piggy bank.

Anyhow, I received my pay this weekend and did have my fourth quarter shopping spree and over the last months I have not found that many new books or authors that I want to read so many of the books I bought is series I follow. I thought that I should show you a small selection of what I bought and what i’m looking forward to read the next months.


Fear University by Meg Collett. New author and series for me and kind of new genre.
Looking for Alaska by John Green. Loved his book The fault in our stars and thought I should give one of his other books a try.
Grin and Berd It by Penny Reid. Second book in the sexy bearded Winston Brothers series.
Diabolical by Jana Deleon. The third book about Shay Archer and I’m really looking forward to be reading this one. I’m finally gonna get some answers.
Eli by Jessica Gadziala. Fourth and last book about the Mallick Brothers. This one I’m waiting to read until I have more time. I been waiting a long time for this one.
Dear Aaron by Mariana Zapata. Her books a long but I really liked The wall of Winnipeg and me and thought I need to read more by her.
Wolf Trouble by Paige Tyler. Trying more in the shape shiftier genre.
Assassin’s code by Jonathan Maberry. Fourth book about the coolest guy I know.
The silent corner by Dean Koontz. Because I just have to.
Run to ground by Katie Ruggle. One of my favorite authors have released a new series.
The Collector by Nora Roberts. A book I have wanted to read for a really long time.
A wrinkle in time by Madeleine L’Engle. A book from 1962 that was on a (books you should read) list that interested me. Exciting.

Have you read any off this books?
