|Come Back To Me|
|August 23rd 2017|
|From USA Today Bestselling Author Kathy Coopmans comes a soul crushing story of second chance love.
Come Back To Me.
What does one do when everyone you love dies?
Only… he didn’t die.
What does one do when forced to walk away from his wife?
sorry – the plotidea sounded so good but then reading the story itself forced me to continously shake my head …
All the given reasons and the ways the characters were acting were just so “out of thin air” … there was nothing behind it
and for all the suffering that was supposed to go on they were kind of fast leaving it behind… I mean thinking your husband is dead … than THAT and wham bang back in bed again (which kind of answers the last line in the Blurb – sorry but … ahm did I mention NO ?

|When a hermit and a scientist are snowbound in a cabin in the woods, the sparks they generate just might melt it all down in this scorching and sensual romance.
Scientist Bethany Morgan discovers the schematics to a world-changing recycling system that will help her realize her greatest dream: providing clean water to the world. The only problem? She must track down the creator, a Dr. Anderson, to help her complete the prototype, and he’s been missing for decades.
James Anderson has clung to the quiet, pain-free existence he’s made in the mountains since his father’s death years ago. But when the determined scientist he rescued gets snowed in at his cabin for an undetermined time, his world is turned upside down.
As their chemistry sets their libidos ablaze, Bethany struggles to convince James the world needs this invention, despite his fears of re-entering public life. Will exploring this attraction mean she needs to sacrifice her long-held dreams and beliefs? Before the rescue team arrives, they must each make some hard decisions about what’s most important.
The Blurb of the story misled me to believe it was a kind of reclusive/hermit story when in fact it was more of a tarzan story which is a huge difference in my book. I tried to get into the book but the interactions between ALL the characters were just to strange for me (its not the right word but I am not sure how to describe it) – I could have worked with the story being more of a “tarzan meets jane” thing if that had been the only issue but I could not feel any kind of relationship or love developing – from my point of view it was only lust or primal need because there was no other female available – sorry but it was not for me …

|Flint Hopkins finds the perfect tenant to rent the space above his Minneapolis-based law office.
All the t’s are crossed and i’s dotted on Ellen’s application. Her references are good. And she’s easy on the eyes.
Flint discovers Ellen Rodgers, Board-Certified Music Therapist, plays music. Bongos, guitars, singing—not Beethoven administered through noise-cancelling headphones.
The cut-throat attorney serves up an eviction notice to the bubbly, constantly humming redhead who’s too sexy for her own good. But luck is on Ellen’s side when Flint’s autistic son, Harrison, takes an instant liking to her. A single dad can’t compete with guitars—and rats. Yes, she has pet rats.
This woman …
She’s annoyingly happy with a constant need to touch him—adjust his tie, button his shirt, invade his space, and mess with his mind.
She must go.
Their lust-hate relationship escalates into something beautiful and tragic. This sexy, romantic-comedy explores the things we want, the things we need, and the impossible decisions parents and children make to survive.
After telling my co-blogger that I had a DNF with this book she told me and (I quote)
“The author has that kind of effect on people.
She’s like marmite you either love her or you hate her books”
Guess that means I will not be trying marmite anytime soon
I am not the one to usually spoiler and I wont start now … but I have to say that the male lead does something almost unforgivable in my eyes that is explained in the first pages of the book and he does nothing in my eyes to redeem himself. I can not see any changes or redeeming qualities he is responsible for his situation and he punishes his surrounding with his presence and his (insert swearword) ways.
Maybe at a certain point within the text after I gave up there is some explanation but I am pretty certain if things really happend the way they seem to have … he most probaly actually should be in jail and not working in the profession that he is – which leaves me with a questionmark.
Anyway I am garciously stepping aside for others that seem to like/love the book but this was not for me.

|I’ll protect her, no matter what!
One fake marriage.
One hot billionaire.
One beautiful nanny.
Trying to run a billion-dollar empire while my son chews up nannies for breakfast is tough.
I am not sure what happend with me and this story. I saw the cover (yeah I am one of those readers that ogles) – read the book and thought that book would be a solid one.
The next thing I know is that i find myself skimming through chapters and I can not even tell you a specific reason to explain myself. It was as if the story was not able to hold my attention which is weired as it really sounded like the perfect fit.

|This month my name is Mary. My name is different every month—Brandy, Honey, Amy…sometimes Joe doesn’t even bother to ask—but he never fails to arouse me with his body, his mouth, his touch, no matter what I’m called or where he picks me up. The sex is always amazing, always leaves me itching for more in those long weeks until I see him again.My real name is Sadie, and once a month over lunch Joe tells me about his latest conquest. But what Joe doesn’t know is that, in my mind, I’m the star of every X-rated one-night stand he has revealed to me, or that I’m practically obsessed with our imaginary sex life. I know it’s wrong. I know my husband wouldn’t understand. But I can’t stop. Not yet.|
When I heard about this book I loved the idea behind it and was looking forward to reading it. (And yes I read other reviews to find out more about it)
But when I finally started I found that I could not work with the way it was written – so sorry….

|This is Book 2 in the Managed, a rock star romance series.
Hailey is hired as Jasper’s PR representative after a sex scandal hit social media and damaged his career. Her job is to rebuild his tattered reputation.

Note: This series contains some adult situations. 18+, mature audiences recommended.
My thoughts on the first part of this series were :
I have a bad feeling where this journey is going to be honest – I liked the Blurb and started reading but already during the first pages I got the feeling that I would be having an issue here.
The characters were lacking depth and were simply acting immature (to be honest they were acting simply stupid) the dialogues were on the level of High School and so predictable that it almost hurt.
But I was thinking I will finish this because at some point this will have to get better – right ? – now the book is finished and I am not so sure – I think the only reason I finished this book was because it was so short …BUT I will try the second one before my final vote …
WELL and here I am again and what can I say the book developed #sarcasm
It still is all the things I mentioned above about the first part and now it adds “unbelievable” to the collection … and this happens in a way that I had to give up not only on finishing this 4 book series but already the finishing of the second part here . It was a DNF at around 70 % then skimming through the pages until I reached the end to make sure I do not miss any mayor breakthroughs
The blur already tells you that the male lead gets hurt so no mayor spoiler here from my side but in case you dislike spoilers do not read further
The description of the injuries of the male lead make me think that it is highly unbelievable that he is running around the way he is the day after the accident happens and I mean HIGHLY unbelievable
And the Issue with “who is going to handle his account” while the male lead is sitting in a corner listening is not only HIGHLY unprofessional with the client in the room, but also again done on the level of a High School disagreement – those two issues added on top of the rest and I had to give up on this story – sorry

| It’s been a long time coming…
She’s never had an orgasm.
There’s just one problem: she’s my physical therapist,
So I have to hold her pretty mouth
If we’re caught, her job and my future as a SEAL will end.
It’s all forbidden fun and games until someone has to propose…
* Just Pretend is a full length standalone romance novel of approximately 65,000 words, featuring a military bad boy and his curvy fake fiance who earn their HEA. It has no cliffhanger and no cheating.
This book was previously published in a different from as Harlow and this version has a changed and expanded plot line and additional super steamy scenes. Bonus content is included for your continued reading pleasure, including the never before published, sizzling hot story Whitney’s Slip and Slide SEAL. Enjoy!(less)
And here we have last weekends def. winner in the section “JUST PRETEND” I never read that book.
The Idea was good but the writing was poor and the story made me want to scream at times. When the other book this weekend “only” made me angry this one really did that AND made me want to scream. I just kept on going to read it because I could not believe that this was actually happening I must have been in a kind of shock.
I do not even know where to start if I had to explain what was wrong with this story.
Lets sum it up to one thing that stands before everything else … this is the first time ever that I heard that a SEAL gets his orders from a civil Dr. and not from a commanding officer.

This book is so badly researched and edited that I can only warn others to read it because reading it actually made me angry …
