Book Review: Ranger the Kaimanawa Stallion by Kelly Wilson

My Review:

I got a copy of this for my kids Nicholas and Charlotte as they both love horses and I was looking for some new kids books to read with my almost five year old son Nicholas and also for Charlotte when she is older as she is only one and a half.

Nicholas said he loves all the pictures and liked having a horse bedtime story.

Charlotte loved the pictures as she kept pointing at the horses mainly.

This story is told from Ranger's POV. He is a wild stallion until one day his herd is directed by helicopters to a holding area. He gets lucky and ends up going home with the Wilson sister's. 

This is a great New Zealand children's story and it is also a true story.

I have heard of the Wilson sister's before but haven't read any of Kelly's books yet (I have added them all to my TBR list and will be getting me some copies to read). I know the TV show Keeping up with the Kaimanawas that the sisters starred in, I just need to finish watching it.

Book Review: The Prisoner by Kiersten Modglin

My Review:

This is the 4th and final book in ‘The Messes’ series. Unlike the first three books you cannot read this as a standalone. You need to read books one to three first. But you will not regret reading them all.

This is another 5 star read by this author. What an epic, emotional conclusion to this amazing series! I have loved every intense minute of Fiona and Logan!

This is Fiona/Gia’s book. I really did not like her at all. But, her story broke my heart, made me sympathize with her and understand what and where her actions result from. 

**I received this book as an ARC and in return gave my honest review**

Blog Tour: Love Under Contract by Sharon C. Cooper + Giveaway

Love Under Contract
Jenkins and Sons Construction Series Book 1
by Sharon C. Cooper
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Timing is everything.

Sumeera Robinson refuses to settle for less than she desires, even if what she craves is the sexy, smart, and charming Nicolas Jenkins-Moore. At her age, she wants marriage and a family, not the empty promises Nick offers. Yet, there is just something about the man that makes moving on nearly impossible.

As the new senior manager of Jenkins & Sons Construction, Nick’s five-year plan is on track with marriage and starting a family at the bottom of the list. Sumeera is as beautiful inside as she is on the outside, but not even she can entice him to abandon his carefully plotted road to success. That is until she walks away without looking back, leaving him yearning for her presence in his life.

Nick is determined to convince Sumeera that he wants the same things she wants. But will an unexpected development keep them from the life they desire? Or will fate bring them closer than they’ve ever been before?

**only .99 cents!!**

Sumeera dropped her compact back into her purse as a loud rumbling motor sounded outside. She went back to the window and tilted the aluminum slat of the blinds down, willing herself to remain calm when she spotted Nick’s truck. There was a time in her life when she’d only been attracted to a man in a suit and tie, clean shaven, with a runner’s body. But nothing about Nicholas Jenkins-Moore resembled that picture.
Just over six-feet tall with dark soulful eyes and skin the color of toasted almonds, Nick, a sheet metal worker by trade, ran one of the largest construction companies in Cincinnati. Her heart pounded against her ribcage as she observed him standing behind his truck taking in his surroundings. He reminded her of a poster boy for everything rugged and powerful.
She wasn’t sure why he parked on the street instead of in the driveway, but it gave her a chance to admire him from a distance. He wore a dark wool cap pulled down low and sunglasses shielded his eyes. Even in his work coat, one could tell he had wide shoulders and a broad chest. His tree-trunk-like legs were encased in his customary blue jeans and dusty steel-toe boots covered his feet.
Sumeera remained rooted in place as desire hummed through her veins while she watched him. His long, easy gait carrying him up the driveway toward the house. With a diamond stud earring in each ear, his sexy goatee and tattoos that she knew covered his forearms beneath his coat, he was everything her prim and proper mother would disapprove of. Yet, Sumeera was crazy in love with the man. Hence, her biggest problem at the moment.
She and Nick had dated for seven months until she made the mistake of falling in love with him. It was a mistake because he had made it clear up front that he wasn’t looking for a serious commitment. Like so many women, Sumeera thought she could change him. Didn’t happen. Then she thought she could handle being in a relationship without knowing if it would amount to marriage, but quickly realized she couldn’t handle that either. And she definitely didn’t want to end up like her mother. Mona had stayed with Russell, who promised marriage, but thirty-five years later he was still making promises and they still weren’t married. That’s why Sumeera had put some distance between herself and Nick. She wanted a different life than her mother’s.
Sumeera stepped away from the window and closed her eyes, willing away the slight headache trying to creep in. She knew her constant tiredness and the random headaches were from working more than she’d been sleeping, and lately she’d been paying for it.
Nick rang the doorbell, and Sumeera opened her eyes. She wiggled her shoulders to relieve some tension, then ran her fingers through her hair hoping it looked alright.
“Okay. I’m ready.” She exhaled before opening the door. But no amount of preparation could have readied her for coming face to face with the man she’d dreamed about during many lonely nights over the last few weeks.
Nick removed his shades, placing them in the top pocket of his jacket that rested over his heart. She swallowed hard when their gazes collided. He studied her for what felt like hours. His sexy brown eyes scrutinized, doing a slow crawl down her body, and then back up again. Heat consumed her, making her want to fan herself, but she didn’t move.
“Hello, Sumeera.” His rich, deep voice washed over her like a gentle breeze, nipping at her skin, and her heart rate inched higher. His cologne, a woodsy scent, brought back memories of romantic nights and happier times. She hadn’t seen him in a month and a half, but there hadn’t been a day that went by that she didn’t think of him.
