20190718_GVL03_Pros Before Bros_Yardley_KDP_FINAL
Nothing about being a librarian prepared Thuy Nguyen for such a wide variety of casseroles. Or life in a small town. Or becoming a farmer.
But what can she do when her catastrophe-prone best friend begs her for help? After all, Maddy has always been there for Thuy. It’s time to return the favor.
It’s simple really, all she has to do is: learn everything about farming ASAP, save her BBF’s family business from disaster, and avoid being caught staring at Maddy’s biker brother, and his muscles, and his smile, and his soulful, sexy eyes.
Oh yeah, and she should definitely not fall in love with him.
Easy, right? . . . Right.

Review: Stud Muffin by Jiffy Kate

Title: Stud Muffin
Author: Jiffy Kate
My Copy: ARC
The BookWhisperer's Rating: 






It’s hard to get revenge without getting a rap sheet.

After Tempest Cassidy walks in on her husband banging her high school nemesis, her whole world gets turned upside down. She goes from being known as the Duchess of Muffins to the town crazy. Her new MO: revenge.
Eventually, Tempest grows weary being arrested. Yet what choice does she have? If she’s not angry, then she’s simply . . . sad.

Just as she decides to get her life back on track, in walks Cage Erickson, the new bouncer at the local strip club. He’s scary-handsome and the polar opposite of her ex. She’s attracted to him, but she’s not looking for a rebound. He’s attracted to her, but he’s not looking for a serious relationship. So, they agree to be friends.

But when lines get blurred in the friend zone, will they both get burned? Or will it be a TKO?



I’ll be honest and say that I was really looking forward to reading about Tempest and Cage and this friendship that grows into something more but this story just wasn’t what I thought it was going to be. 

Tempest was a firecracker of a character but not in all the best ways.  Most of the time she was annoying and did not so smart things. I know how hard it can be to deal with anger but some of the ways she dealt with her anger was not the most mature ways.  They were ways that landed her in jail and it took her a while to learn her lesson.

Cage seemed like a decent character throughout the book.  He was levelheaded and interested in Tempest and took his time with her healing.  However, it felt like he had to save her a lot in the book. Anytime Mindy or Asher came around and a disaster was had, he was either right beside her or not to far away to help.  I just that women could save themselves.

I wish I could have really enjoyed this story more but I found things that just didn't settle well with me.

BookWhisperer Reviews: Fight by Molly McLain

Fight (Velocity, #2)Fight by Molly McLain
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Summary:
The story continues...

I trusted Colton with every bit of myself. I believed him when he promised he’d never hurt me. But he broke me…and now I watch him give another woman everything I thought would be mine.

I never saw this coming.

I don’t blame Taylor for the decisions she’s made, because I know the fault is all mine. I took her for granted. I broke her heart.

But she’s everything to me. If the guy holding her now thinks for one second I’ll lay down without a fight, he’s dead wrong.

Because I’m coming after what’s mine.


Yet again, I am so surprised by the small number of reviews on Molly McLain's Velocity series books. I immediately had to throw myself into this book at the tail end of finishing Fly. Colton and Taylor are in quite a sticky situation. Neither in an attempt to hurt the other is a story of actions and consequences. Thus far Colton has been living a life of the superstar, but with money and notoriety comes greedy people. Taylor and Colton are going to find their situation continuing to evolve, but it will be with their partnership that they will find a way to the other side. It is sad to see Taylor carry a much larger burden for the bulk of this story, but regardless of their peer's opinions, this is her nature and a decision that she makes all on her own. It is not for the greed of Colton that she has always ensured that she carried the weight for him at home, but rather her compelling personality to make sure that she keeps it all within herself to alleviate undue stress for Colton. What is more monumental in this story is the growth in Colton to interpret her natural tendencies and take the lead. Love was always enough for these two but in order to truly become the partnership that they both deserve someone willing to carry the weight of the relationship equally. This is the journey of that process and learning to navigate the bad in the world together. The perfection of Taylor and Colton's love is amazing. These two people are so desperately in love, and Fight is proof that they can overcome anything as long as they do it together.

BookWhisperer Review: Fly by Molly McLain

Fly (Velocity, #1)Fly by Molly McLain
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Summary:
Meet Colton Wade, FMX rider...

I’m just a small town guy who caught a lucky break. Now I’m living the dream, on the brink of high-flying super-stardom. But something’s missing.

That something is Taylor.

She’s my best friend. The one who makes me want to push harder and higher. The one I fall back on when shit gets tough. The one I’d give it all up for.

I’d do anything to protect her. To make her dreams come true too.

But a single night changes everything.

And now the one she needs protection from...is me.
 




Fly is light on the reviews on Goodreads, and I can't for the life of me understand why? This was my first experience with works by Molly McLain, and I was over the moon for this couple from the moment that it started. Colton has been following his dreams, but really never once left the small-town girl behind. While she has been carrying the weight of responsibility it is clear that this young woman is in love with her best friend, and that he shares the same sentiment. Fly carries emotions high with anticipation and expectation for the love that is so obviously under the surface for this couple. As the transitions being in their relationship the readers will soar on the high of their budding romance, but fall off a cliff hanger that will leave them desperate for more. There is no choice, but to continue through Flight so make sure that you have them both on hand.

Review: Happy Trail by Daisy Prescott

Title: Happy Trail
By: Daisy Prescott
My Copy: ARC by author
The BookWhisperer's Rating: 


A man of few words, Ranger Jay Daniels values the calm, quiet solitude of the Great Smoky Mountains. Never quite fitting in with either side of his family, he prefers the company of birds and tress to people.

Yeah, he'd most definitely prefer a bird--any bird, any bird at all, take a vulture for instance--to the human-tornado hybrid that just blew onto his peaceful stretch of the Appalachian Trail.

The path of true love never has run smooth for Olive Perry. After getting dumped and promptly abandoned in the middle of her multi-month hike, Olive swears off men. Determined to finish the long trek by herself, she doesn't need a prince--or broody and taciturn ranger--to save her.

Yet, when an early snowstorm threatens the mountains, and Ranger Daniels is charged with getting hikers to safety, that includes hot-tempered Olive Perry. Snowed in and forced to share an abandoned cabin, can Olive's heated intensity melt Jay's cool reserve?

And if so, will this happy trail lead to true love? Or will their time together be just another bump in the road?



There was so much I loved about this book but I will only highlight just a few things and let you all make your own decisions. 

Olive and Jay were such solid and likeable characters that I found myself easily turning the pages and becoming more engrossed into their story.  They were who they are with no apologizes to anyone else and I liked that strongness.  I especially liked Olive’s no filter for half of the book.

One of the things I liked about this book is that they aren’t thrown together straight out of the gate; there are chapters of Jay and all of his “ranger-i-ness”, with nature and whatnot, and we get to learn who he is first before Olive is introduced to him.  Same with Olive, we learn about who she is, what she is been through, and how she grows on her own before she even meets Jay (I loved that!)  Then that magic moment happens when they meet and trek back to beat the storm. We get to witness their awkwardness together and their growing like for each other.

However, my favorite part was how Olive sent out the postcards to keep in touch.  It is such a small part of the story but it really touched my heart. 

I think this is my favorite book out of the Smartypants universe so far!

Review: Code of Conduct by April White


Title: Code of Conduct
By: April White
My Copy: ARC from author
The BookWhisperer's Rating: 







There are three things you need to know about Shane P.I.
1) P.I. is not her last name, it's her job title,
2) Her specialty is catching cheaters, and
3) She's a superhuman - kind of.

Gabriel is a security expert for Cipher Security, and a former UN Peacekeeper with a fierce protective streak that finds its focus on the beautiful P.I.

Their attraction is like an elephant in a room full of breakable things, and figuring out how to trust each other with their hearts, and maybe their lives, is the most fragile thing of all.




This Smartypants romance idea was just brilliant! I know I am only two books into the lot but I am loving every character and every story so far.

I’ll just lay it out, if you like Penny Reid’s writing and characters then you will like April White’s Code of Conduct.  A very strong and brilliant woman is your main character, Shane is her name, but oh, is she so guarded! A list of few friends and a whole lot of anti-trust surrounds her.  However, when she runs into the sexy Gabriel, her friend list grows just a smidge.

I think what I loved about Shane the most was that she flat-out is flawed. She admits it from the very beginning of the book.  Per her past, she has trust issues and her P.I. job is to catch cheaters.  I can’t imagine someone not having trust issues with a job of such.  J  But she grows significantly in this book and it was such a pleasure to read her do such. 

And, friends, Gabriel is mega big cartoon eyes handsome and swoon-worthy!  Who he is, who his family is, how he slowly worms his way into Shane’s life but knows when he has to back off; he is the perfect specimen. 
My favorite part is how our book characters wove in and out of Penny Reid’s universe and April White’s side characters.  It felt natural and full of ease.  No one felt out of place; it’s like they all belonged.

Review: Weight Expectations by M.E. Carter

Title: Weight Expectations
By: M.E. Carter
My Copy: ARC from Author
The BookWhisperer's Rating: 


Rian Thompson thought she joined the gym to get healthy. Little did she know she was about to add hundred and ninety pounds of swoonworthy abdominal muscles and arrogance to her life.

Every day in Rians’s life follows a predictable pattern, and she wouldn’t have it any other way. She’s got a nice job, a nice place to live, and a nice family – even if they are a little wedding-zilla-ish at the moment.

She doesn’t need anything spectacular to be happy. She just needs to get healthy – mentally, physically. . . and maybe spiritually if that happens. But she’ll settle for two out of three until her sister finally gets hitched.

Carlos Davies thought his life was perfect. Little did he know it was about to be turned upside down by a woman who is not his type.

In Carlos’s mind, his life is damn near perfect. He’s got a great job, a great place to live, and a great stash of pick up lines that always work. It has occurred to him that maybe no one actually takes him all that seriously. But with these bulging biceps and thick, dark hair, does that even matter since he’s never sleeping alone?



Welcome to Weight Expectations, where great—and unexpected—things happen.
I thought that this synopsis sounded pretty good; how could a girl not love a story about a handsome man realizing that beauty is not just skin deep?  However, I struggled with Rian and Carlos throughout the whole book and I hate that I did! 

I did like Rian’s character separately.  She had a good head on her shoulders, was smart, witty, fun, and was just trying to get through life the best way she could.  I can respect that; I’m the same way.  What really brought me down about her character was how she let people walk over her; mainly her sister, mother, co-worker (the guy), and herself.  She was quite pessimistic of who she was, always putting herself down and I found myself really wanting her to be a strong, confident character.

Carlos was hard for me to love.  I felt like there were some good chances for him to grow (and he did at the end) but getting there was rough.  He bounced back and forth between, “why is Rian so important in my head” to “Oh, look at gym girl, let’s take her home with me.”  I felt like Carlos was one dimensional and not multi-dimensional, which is how I like my book men. J  He was focused on his job, his body, his single life, focused on himself.  Yes, he grew into a man that could think more than just about himself but this growth happen in an instant.

About GIRL IN LUV:

Langley Vaughn is in desperate need of a date.

But not just any date.

She's looking for a date to the wedding from hell. It isn't every day you're forced to be in the bridal party while your first love marries your archnemesis…otherwise known as the world's worst stepsister. The entire situation is a nightmare, and Langley is sick and tired of taking orders and forcing a fake smile. She's done being the bad guy when she was the one who was wronged.

She needs to find a date who's not afraid of her family's money…someone willing to shake things up. She needs someone outside of her normal social circle, someone ready to go to war with the well-to-do. She needs someone who won't back down. Someone willing to play the complicated game of tug-of-war she's been engaged in with her family for years.

Never in a million years did she think she was going to stumble across her very own heroic heartthrob when she set her crazy plan in motion.

Not only does Iker show up for her time and time again, he also forces her to finally fight for herself.

He says he's only there for the money…but his actions speak so much louder than his words.

Iker Alvarez would do anything and everything to get his hands on some quick cash.

Not just any cash, but enough to make sure his younger brother gets into the college of his dreams.

Thank goodness for a desperate, pretty little rich girl with too much money and her heart set on an outrageous scheme. Being in the right place at the right time might just be the answer to both of their prayers—and this smart soldier has never let a golden opportunity slide by.

Iker doesn't mind coming to Langley's rescue and being her plus-one…as long as the price is right.

Only, he didn't plan on liking the blonde socialite as much as he does. He is totally unprepared for the pull he feels toward her, coupled with his growing desire to protect her from the vultures and villains living under the same roof.

He wants to be the guy who keeps her safe and gives her the courage she obviously needs to fight back… But someone else, someone far more powerful and influential than Langley's wealthy family, has dibs on Iker's time and on his future. He knows he isn't the guy Langley can count on in the long run, but damn, if he doesn't want to do everything in his power to be that man.

About BOY IN LUV:

Distance sure as hell made his heart grow fonder… But it shattered hers into a million pieces.

Langley Vaughn knows she's never going to make the same mistake again.

Who falls head over heels in love in a week? Langley did, and she's regretted it every day since she handed her heart to a boy with too many secrets and too much baggage. Iker doesn't fit into Langley's world, and he made it clear he doesn't want to. He left before she even got a chance to try and change his mind or to prove to him how good they could be together. Langley's spent the last nine months healing her heart and making big plans for the future. Plans that absolutely don't include Iker… even though he's back, looking better than ever, and saying all the right things.

Iker Alvarez knows he made the biggest mistake of his life.

At first, the pretty blonde in the red dress was nothing more than a means to an end. But, she quickly became so much more. As soon as Iker walked away from Langley, claiming it was for her own good, he knew he screwed up. He left her so she wouldn't worry about him when he deployed, so she wouldn't waste her time waiting around for a guy who was never going to be good enough for her. Only, nine months and a deployment later, Iker still can't get Langley out of his head… and he totally underestimated the hold she has on his hardened heart. He's a guy who's not sure how love should work, or how to go about winning his girl back…he's about to get a crash course in both.
