Baking and Babies (Chocoholics, #3)Baking and Babies by Tara Sivec
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I don't even know where to begin with how OUTRAGEOUSLY HILARIOUS this book is. Tara has done it again!!! I'm a 1-clicker for ANY Tara Sivec book but admittedly I've been looking forward to this book for a long time as I've a HUGE fan of the Chocolate Lovers and Chocoholics Series.

It was no surprise to me that the book starts off with a BANG! It's no shocker that a baby is involved but how this baby plays into the story just ups the hilarity factor 100 points. All our favorites are back including the ever inappropriate Drew!

Molly using her stealth Ninja skills gets drawn into a lie perpetuated by her older sister Charlotte who I feel is being somewhat selfish. However Molly finds a way to lighten the tension felt in this somewhat tense situation...

"I raise my arms in the air and shake them around, wondering what the hell is wrong with me. who the hell says woohoo?"

Along with this, we get to meet the very sexy Marco (also known as Alfonso D which we find out is NOT a favorite of Molly) who has been Molly's instructor for the last 2 years while she's becoming a classically trained French Pastry Chef. Now that school is over, they each have plans to go after what they've wanted to have for the last 2 years, but as you might expect plans go somewhat awry which just adds to the comedy show of this book!

We come to learn that not only is Marco sexy and hot, but his family is almost as crazy as Molly's family and friends! How that's possible I don't know but trust me, the scenes with his family had me laughing and almost snorting especially when his mother is talking about the crusty socks...

"I distinctly remember your father showing you how a prophylactic works when you were thirteen and I started finding crusty socks under your bed."

As the book progresses, the interactions between Molly and Marco just keep getting better and better. Especially when Marco is introduced to Jim, Carter and Drew. They draw Marco right in and while no blood is shed, the fact that he's still standing at the end of the night is amazing in and of itself! I especially loved when Molly decided to "make her move" on Marco with some less than favorable results. The fact that Marco sticks around after this, makes him a winner in my book.... not that he already wasn't a winner!!!

"I drift off to sleep with a smile on my face that my night ended better than I thought it would after Molly's dad introduced me to his fists."


As the weeks pass getting closer to Charlotte and Gavin's wedding, the book just keeps getting better and better. As I've come to appreciate in Tara's writing, especially in this series, the shenanigans of all our favorite characters are in play and I just kept laughing and laughing as everyone's worlds begin to collide into each other. As lies are revealed and everyone finds out what's really going on, we find out that the "kids" are grown up.....almost!!!

If you take nothing else from this review, take this....this is a MUST READ book!!! You'll laugh till you cry!!!

Title: Worth Saving
Author: W.S. Greer
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Published: October 17, 2015
When we first met, we were both lost. It was written in our eyes when we first saw each other. My past haunted me, your present haunted you. I could see that you were aching, yet trying to bury the pain deep down so that no one would know, but it was there. I saw it. I saw you. 
I thought you needed me to swoop in and save the day; to be your hero, your knight in shining armor that would ride in and rescue you from the torment. And something inside drove me to a place I'd never been before. A place where it didn't matter how stacked the odds were, because nothing would stand between us. Nothing would stand in the way of me being the savior you needed me to be, and I'd go to hell and back to protect you. I thought you needed me, but I was wrong.
It's me who needs you. I need your heart next to mine in order to get over what I've been through, and to push through the obstacles that are in our way now. It won't be easy. It'll be the hardest thing either of us has ever had to endure, but as long as we make it through together, it'll all be worth it, because you're worth every bit of the struggle. It's because of you that I can stare death in the face and not feel the slightest hint of fear. You make it all okay. You're worth it. You’re worth saving.
“The story itself was amazing. Both Layla and Austin's story hit home for me. Layla was so brave. She fought her way out of one hell into another.” ~ My Girlfriends Nook Korner
“The characters are real and it’s easy to see their pain. Click it up friends if you want a brutal love story along with a story of survival. It’s good. Give it a chance! Everyone is worth saving.” ~ Ramblings From Beneath The Sheets

Read an excerpt from READY OR NOT:

  “You are good enough?” I asked softly. His intense gaze met mine, sincerity pouring out of his memorizing stare. “I’d damn well try to be.” Like a flash, he was on me—his lips, his hands, and his entire presence. My breath hitched in surprise as my body melted into his, molding around him as if I’d been made to do so. My mouth opened, and his tongue found mine, caressing and moving together like we were long-lost lovers. His fingers twisted into my hair, pulling me closer. I felt every hard inch of his body pressed against mine. Holy shit, I am kissing Jackson Reid. I was making out with my asshole neighbor.

Take The Storm (Rising Storm #6)Take The Storm by Rebecca Zanetti
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I have to say I'm loving this series more and more as each episode is released. We're getting down to the nitty gritty with only two more episodes after this and the proverbial "sh*t is going to hit the fan!" There's so much action occurring in this episode between all the couples with ultimatums being given and relationships solidified and/or changing all on wht appears to be a whim. But as Patrick said while sitting in his father's Pub:

"Have you ever just sensed the calm before the storm?" "Well, I'd like to take the storm away from here, but I don't think it's going to give us much warning"

And he's so right on that it's somewhat eerie! What's unfortunate in this episode though is that one of the couples who I REALLY want to have their HEA just may not get it no matter how badly they both want it. Because one of them is too stubborn, in my opinion to go after what they really want and is letting outside influences affect how they lead their life.

Added to this is the comedy show, and that's what it was, when one of our couples decides to take their relationship to the next level, but due to some circumstances beyond their control, don't quite get there. I cracked up while reading this part of the book.

"The entire room roared into silence and everybody stared at the package resting on the shag carpet. It must've gotten caught on her shorts."

On top of this, Ginny and Logan are getting closer and closer and unfortunately I think their relationship is going to hit some major speed bumps and may never recover by the end of this really great series.
They're both in this together, but with some major untruths looming between them.

As this episode closes out, one of the residents of Storm, Texas is even more determined to get what they want no matter who it hurts in the process! I'm so looking forward to next week's episode to see how some of these situations are resolved before the Storm hits hard and heavy!

Welcome to Storm, Texas, where passion runs hot, desire runs deep, and secrets have the power to destroy...

Nestled among rolling hills and painted with vibrant wildflowers, the bucolic town of Storm, Texas, seems like nothing short of perfection. But there are secrets beneath the facade. Dark secrets. Powerful secrets. The kind that can destroy lives and tear families apart. The kind that can cut through a town like a tempest, leaving jealousy and destruction in its wake, along with shattered hopes and broken dreams. All it takes is one little thing to shatter that polish. Reading like an on-going drama in the tradition of classic day and night-time soap operas like Dallas, Dynasty, and All My Children, Rising Storm is full of scandal, deceit, romance, passion, and secrets. With 1001 Dark Nights as the “producer,” Julie Kenner and Dee Davis use a television model with each week building on the last to create a storyline that fulfills the promise of a drama-filled soap opera. Joining Kenner and Davis in the “writer’s room” is an incredible group of New York Times bestselling authors such as Lexi Blake, Elisabeth Naughton, Larissa Ione, Rebecca Zanetti and Lisa Mondello who have brought their vision of Storm to life. A serial soap opera containing eight episodes in season one, the season premiere of Rising Storm, TEMPEST RISING, debuted September 24th with each subsequent episode releasing consecutively this fall.

So get ready. The storm is coming.

The transformation wasn't easy, but it was worth it.
My life became so awesome that I should've seen it coming.

It wasn't until the age of 29 that she realized she also had a hidden passion for reading; before then she claimed to have hated it. Six months after unlocking that deep desire she never knew she held, she turned the key to another chapter of her life which has become the desire to write. And the rest is still history in the making.
