Can’t Hold Back by Serena Bell

I’ve been waiting for this book since I finished reading Jake and Mira’s story. And I wasn’t disappointed.

I’d like to start with a pre-review note – Serena opened a Facebook group a while ago called Serena’s Salon. Great people, good discussions and one fantastic Serena Bell. Join us there for exclusive announcements and such.

Now, for my review of Can’t Hold Back. It can be read as a standalone, but Hold On Tight is so good, you don’t want to not read it, too.

This story introduces two new characters. Three actually, but I’m referring to the lead characters and they are Alia, Jake’s friend and Nate, also a friend and on leave from his tour.

I’d admit, the prologue was so sweet, I didn’t see where the drama that carries the plot goes into play. But that became very clear as I progressed towards the end of the prologue when Alia pretty much hands over Nate Riordan to her sister, Becca. Then we’re immediately thrown into the story. Alia at Jake’s facility.

In New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kristen Proby’s brand new series, five best friends open a hot new restaurant, but one of them gets much more than she bargained for when a sexy former rock star walks through the doors—and into her heart.

Seduction is quickly becoming the hottest new restaurant in Portland, and Addison Wade is proud to claim 1/5 of the credit. She’s determined to make it a success and can’t think of a better way to bring in new customers than live music. But when former rock star Jake Keller swaggers through the doors to apply for the weekend gig, she knows she’s in trouble. Addie instantly recognizes him—his posters were plastered all over her bedroom walls in high school—he’s all bad boy…exactly her type and exactly what she doesn’t need.

Jake Keller walked away from the limelight five years ago and yearns to return to what’s always driven him: the music. If he gets to work for a smart-mouthed, funny-as-hell bombshell, all the better. But talking Addie into giving him the job is far easier than persuading her that he wants more than a romp in her bed. Just when she begins to drop her walls, Jake’s past finally catches up with him.

Will Addie be torn apart once again or will Jake be able to convince her to drown out her doubts and listen to her heart?

Claiming Their Christmas (Sugar, Spice, and Shifters anthology) by Ellis Leigh

Got a chance to review this anthology, and decided to start, naturally (for me, anyway) with the Feral Breed story.

Claiming Their Christmas is a sweet treat for me as I was sure the series has concluded.

I’m thinking all the Feral Breed couples are my favorite couple, each in their turn. Beast is pretty much still shell-shocked at learning Amber was his first, unfulfilled mate. Yes, the fates have changed their life course and chosen Calla for him, but since at first the fates chose Amber for him, he’s feeling extra responsible for her death. Read More »
