Ex Libris Romance: Summer Fun!

 

Welcome, romance readers!  Today I’m sharing my reviews of three romances that I’ve read recently.  To me, summer fun means reading romance!

TemptationTemptation
Author: Kathryn Barrett
Publisher: Entangled
Heat: Medium
Available Now
Laura Hayes has been acting since she was an infant, making Hollywood the only home she has ever known. But when she moves to Pennsylvania’s Amish country to film her next movie, she discovers there’s more to life than a pair of Jimmy Choos and a Marie Claire cover.  Intrigued by the Amish simplicity, she’s soon gardening and baking plum pies—and enjoying it. And when her neighbor turns out to be the local heartthrob and a talented furniture maker, she realizes that what’s missing from her life might be the love of a good man—not to mention the perfect heirloom tomato.  Jacob fights the urge to question the teachings of his Amish beliefs—despite his desire to create furniture that is beautiful as well as useful—and struggles with his longing for the sexy stranger who makes him feel truly alive for the first time. As his attraction grows, so do his doubts, until he’s forced to face temptation and decide once and for all what is truly worth the fight.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I loved this book!  Set in Amish country, this romance was a breath of fresh air.  Jacob is not your typical alpha male romance hero.  Rather, he is the strong and silent type who really makes Laura rethink the life she has made for herself.  Laura, on the other hand, makes Jacob examine what it is that he wants from life.   In the end, I truly felt that Laura and Jacob each had a good influence on each other.  The difference in their way of life was also a very interesting part of the story.  This was a sweet and entertaining romance with a very satisfying story.

 

From This Moment OnFrom This Moment On
Author: Bella Andre
Publisher: Harlequin
Heat: Hot
Available 6-25-13
For thirty-six years, Marcus Sullivan has been the responsible older brother, stepping in to take care of his seven siblings after their father died when they were children. But when the perfectly ordered future he’s planned for himself turns out to be nothing but a lie, Marcus needs one reckless night to shake free from it all. Nicola Harding is known throughout the world by only one name – Nico – for her catchy, sensual pop songs.  After a terrible betrayal by a man who loved fame far more than he ever loved her, she vows not to let anyone else get close enough to find out who she really is…or hurt her again. One night is all Nicola and Marcus agree to share with each other. But nothing goes as they plan when instead of simply tangling limbs, they find a deeper connection than either of them could have anticipated. And even though they both try to fight it, growing emotions – and sizzling attraction – keep drawing them closer together. – Goodreads

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Another book in the Sullivan Brothers series, From This Moment tells the story of Marcus ad Nicola, who meet with the purpose of having a one night stand, but end up falling in love. Marcus was a very appealing character as the responsible brother. I also liked Nicola, who was a famous pop star on the outside, but still felt like a small town girl on the inside.  I think fans of this series will be pleased with this installment

 

A Baby Between FriendsA Baby Between Friends
Author: Kathie DeNosky
Publisher: Harlequin
Heat: Medium
Available 7-1-13
More than anything, Summer Patterson wants a baby. What she doesn’t want is a husband. Thankfully, her best friend, Ryder McClain, makes the perfect sperm donor. Ryder is loyal, undeniably sexy and the one man she trusts—the only reason she agrees to conceive their baby naturally. When baby-making nights with Summer blaze like the West Texas sun, Ryder feels the heat. He never expected Summer to say yes to sharing his bed. Now he’s falling for her—and the prospect of fatherhood—while hiding a secret that could destroy her faith in him forever. – Goodreads

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I am usually a fan of the baby related plot, but this one fell a bit flat. The subplot of this book was that the female MC is a rape survivor who decides she wants Ryder to “teach her” how to accept physical intimacy again. This comes up in romance a lot and it has always made me uncomfortable as a plot device. To be honest, it soured me to the rest of the story, as well.

    I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you
    presented it. Too cool!
