Small town romances are my favorites, because we usually get to follow the couple even after their story is over in one book. I started this series with the novella and it wasn't my favorite, but this book was way better. I liked the plot with the cowboys are even the more normal day-to-day life.

So in this book we have Sadie returning to hr childhood town of Copper Ridge. I have to say that for me it was a little difficult to understand why she had to return when her problems are connected to her parents and not the town. But moving on we have the part time cowboy from the title named Eli that also work as the twon deputy, he's in campain for sheriff and was responsible for arresting Sadie in the past.

So they didn't have the best of relationships, but I liked the way Sadie changed and tried to start her life again in Copper Ridge by starting a b&b. I think Eli could use with her meddling, but the town needed more changing than anything. So I liked the couple, just think the ending was a little rushed and they needed more time before all the forgiveness could come to close.

Series: Call of Crows #1

Genres: Paranormal Romance

Purchase: Amazon

When I read the first review of this book the story really hooked me. I liked the Nordic mithology angle, but the fun part of this was how the author managed to make the Gods and their soldiers more human and normal. It was really fun watching how Kera was derailed from her normal life after the goddess Skuld was called to save her.

I really liked Vig and the way he managed to help Kera from the start, they had a different life so far and he was raised to be a raven and can help her navegate this new life, because she's a Marine, but has some problems with the way some of the crows love death and killing people. Kera was organized and she had a hard time understand the way things are for crows, but nobody really tried to help her, except for Vig.

I was a little confused with the names and people, because the author was introducing way too much people, too soon, but after I got to know them, the story started flowing better. Between loved Brodie, the dog!!!

Series: Billionaire Boys Club #2

Genres: Romance

Purchase: Amazon

I liked Hunter, he was a nice guy in the previous book and it was fun watching him falling in love with the crazy Gretchen, but I was anxious for his story. He was kinda like a stalker, but in a nice way. Gretchen was this great girl, but we only got to really know her was in this book and she had a very difficult life, plus she wrotes some crazy alien erotic novels like a ghost writer and it's kinda funny watching her struggle with it.

But I liked this couple and even after all the drama about Hunter and his scars, Gretchen managed to show him all the nice things he could do by just trusting her. I liked that he was so trusting with her and decided to change a lot, plus his friends helped too.

It was a cute book, but I liked the way Hunter changed for the best and not only because Gretchen wanted. The flowers were such a nice touch.

I've been following this series from the very first story and it's usually a great book to get into and suffer along with the couple. So it was just an okay book for me, didn't even cry and that always happen with this series. I think my biggest problem with the couple was to me how weak Phoenix tried to be. She never fights for want she wants and spend 17 years in jail for something she was not responsible and never tried to really show the truth.

I liked Riley but didn't liked the way he just settled for everything and it took him way too long to fight for what he really wanted. He knew Phoenix before the accident and could explain better to everyone about her life, but he never tried and that for me was bad enough.

So I didn't loved the couple for different reasons and their romance felt weak to me because Phoenix was okay with everything just to be with her son and that it's not okay to me. I wanted Riley with someone else and I don't much care for Phoenix. So not a great story to me.

Last week I didn't buy anything but a couple of books I had preordered were just released and I'm dying to read them. :)

Series: The Original Heartbreakers #0.5
Publisher: March 1st 2015 by Harlequin
Genres: Romance

Purchase: Amazon

I've heard great things about Gena but I think this is the first book of hers I got to read it. It was a great novella and set the tone for the series to come. I think this series has some potential and it was nice to enjoy getting to know about this town. Strawberry Valley sounds like a great town for romance and gossip.

Kenna was a great girl and she was trying to make the town overcome the dislike for her and her mother. They got into their minds that Kenna was just like her mother but we got to see her with friends and her daughter and it's clear she's a great girl and very hardworking. I think it was fun to watch her falling in love with the billionaire Dane. He's not a bad guy, but his family is a little messed up and he was confused about his feelings. But I liked Dane too, they made a cute couple and it was nice knowing they were more than friends when teenagers so the romance was more believable now since the book is short.

Archangel's Shadows by Nalini Singh
Series: Guild Hunter #7
Published  October 28th 2014 by Berkley Sensation
Format: ebook
Length: 366 pages
Source: Bought
In the wake of a brutal war, the archangel Raphael and his hunter consort, Elena, are dealing with the treacherously shifting tides of archangelic politics and the people of a battered but not broken city. The last thing their city needs is more death, especially a death that bears the eerie signature of an insane enemy archangel who cannot— should not—be walking the streets.
This hunt must be undertaken with stealth and without alerting their people. It must be handled by those who can become shadows themselves…
Ash is a gifted tracker and a woman cursed with the ability to sense the secrets of anyone she touches. But there’s one man she knows all too well without a single instant of skin contact: Janvier, the dangerously sexy Cajun vampire who has fascinated and infuriated her for years. Now, as they track down a merciless killer, their cat-and-mouse game of flirtation and provocation has turned into a profound one of the heart. And this time, it is Ash’s secret, dark and terrible, that threatens to destroy them both.

Owww it's finally Janvier and Ashwini book. I absolutely loved seeing these two discover their place in this world. We've seen them working together before but this time it felt more personal especially with Janvier now living in New York and trying really hard to connect with Ash outside their hunter routine. 

after the huge battle on the last book, we have some moments of calmer, but there are some strange things happening and Janvier is working for Raphael to make things work among the vampires and humans. I liked the way some of the vampires are acting more human. Janvier showed some real power too and I wanted him to join Raphael seven, but there's still plenty of places for him to settle down in New York.

This book was a little on the soft side and we had some time to check Elena, Honor and even the legion, but not much happened this time.

Daisy is a photographer and works mostly on weddings and engagemets, but she loves her job and belives that her life is now dull enough that the papparazzi will forget about her. Her parents are famous, a rock star and a former model made things difficult for her growing up.But I liked the way she handled meeting Seb and getting pregnant,

I thought this was such a cute romance and really liked this couple. Seb was a nice guy and managed to make all the right choices, plus he's very normal and trying so hard to change his life and save the house his family left in a inheritance. It was so nice seeing this couple finding their way into married life and a new family.

Series: Kavanaghs of Silver Glen #4

Genres: Romance

It was a fun book to continue in this series. I always like the pregnancy books, because the romance is usually more real and honest. Cassidy and Gavin were great people and I think she deserved to be treated better by her family, but I liked Gavin and he made the right choices during this story.

This book is part of a series but I don't think it's necessary to read the previous to understand this family, but it's fun to see the another Kavanaghs meeting their match and having a family. The twins were a nice touch to this couple. I really liked their romance and the only problem to me was her family.
