Review: "A Shot of Sultry" by Macy Beckett

 From Goodreads:  Welcome to Sultry Springs, Texas: where home can be the perfect place for a fresh start.  For West Coast filmmaker Bobbi Gallagher, going back to Sultry Springs is a last resort. But with her career in tatters, a quick trip to her hometown might get her the footage she needs to salvage her reputation. She just can't let anything distract her again. Not even the gorgeous contractor her brother asked to watch over her. As if she can't handle filming a few rowdy Texans.

Golden boy Trey Lewis, with his blond hair and Technicolor-blue eyes, is a leading man if Bobbi ever saw one. He's strong and confident and--much to her delight--usually shirtless. He thinks keeping his best friend's baby sister out of trouble will be easy. But he has no idea of the trouble in store for him..


My Thoughts:  I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.  I love this series!!   A Shot of Sultry is the second Sultry Springs book and I absolutely loved it.  I am not a huge fan of romance novels but this book was really good.

I liked Trey's character a lot in Sultry with a Twist and I loved that he got his own book because he is such a great character.  He is a total smart ass but also incredibly endearing.  Oh and did I mention he's smoking hot?!  I also liked Bobbi a lot.  In the very beginning, I wasn't so sure that I was going to like her but as I got further into the book, I got to know her more and I had to admire her as a character.  She had to deal with so much throughout her life and she tried to act so tough in an effort to mask her vulnerability.

The story is really fun; Bobbi is supposed to filming a sleazy reality tv show but instead sparks fly between her Trey.  The romance aspect of the story is pretty steamy but also really sweet.  There are a lot of great encounters between Bobbi and Trey and it is nice to see Bobbi reconnect with her brother, Luke.  That is one thing that I definitely liked about this book, that I got to see June and Luke again; I loved them in Sultry with a Twist and I was glad they played a big part in this book.  There was a new character, Colton, in this book and even though he seemed liked a sleazy guy at first, I really started to like him.  He is actually featured in the next book and I am excited to see how his story turns out.  Overall, this is a really great read:  whether or not you are a fan of romance novels, you should definitely check this book out! 4 stars.

A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin           These are two books that I just recently started recommending but they are books that can appeal to anyone so they are easy picks when someone asks for a recommendation. 6.) Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead  - I get a little embarrassed when I recommend this book to people but seriously, just because it has vampires does not mean it is like Twilight. 7.) The Giver by Lois

Review and Giveaway: "Distant Signs" by Anne Richter

Synopsis: Distant Signs is an intimate portrait of two families spanning three generations amidst turbulent political change, behind and beyond the Berlin Wall. In 1960s East Germany, Margret, a professor’s daughter from the city, meets and marries Hans, from a small village in Thuringia. The couple struggle to contend with their different backgrounds, and the emotional scars they bear from childhood in the aftermath of war. As East German history gradually unravels, with collision of the personal and political, their two families’ hidden truths are quietly revealed. An exquisitely written novel with strongly etched characters that stay with you long after the book is finished and an authentic portrayal of family life behind the iron curtain based on personal experience of the author who is East German and was 16 years old at the fall of the Berlin Wall. Why do families repeat destructive patterns of behaviour across generations? Should the personal take precedence over

Review and Giveaway: "This Son of York" by Anne Easter Smith

Synopsis: Now is the winter of our discontent, Made glorious summer by This Son of York…” — William Shakespeare, Richard III Richard III was Anne’s muse for her first five books, but, finally, in This Son of York he becomes her protagonist. The story of this English king is one of history’s most compelling, made even more fascinating through the discovery in 2012 of his bones buried under a car park in Leicester. This new portrait of England’s most controversial king is meticulously researched and brings to vivid life the troubled, complex Richard of Gloucester, who ruled for two years over an England tired of war and civil strife. The loyal and dutiful youngest son of York, Richard lived most of his short life in the shadow of his brother, Edward IV, loyally supporting his sibling until the mantle of power was thrust unexpectedly on him. Some of his actions and motives were misunderstood by his enemies to have been a deliberate usurpation of the throne, but thr
