Devil May Cry by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Rating: 10 *'s
My Thoughts: OMG! This was such a fantastic story! Vane is still my favorite Dark-Hunter but Sin is up there near the top of my favorites. I also enjoyed seeing more of Ash and I cannot wait for his story. I enjoyed the pairing up of Kat and Sin and thought they made a perfect match. Look forward to getting to know Cypher as well, as you know there's a story there with that one! Plenty of surprises in this book that are sure to entertain every Dark Hunter fan. I'm a little behind in the Dream Hunter series so I will need to go dig up the next one out of the cedar chest as this book has certainly awakened the appetite for more!
The Pregnancy Test by Erin McCarthy
Rating: 7 *'s
My Thoughts: Not a bad story though a little predictable. Some loose ends lingered at the end of the book and it felt a little rushed but overall I enjoyed it. I liked the strength of Mandy's character and the soft center underneath Damien's rough and tough exterior.
Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder by Joanne Fluke
Rating: 4 *'s
My Thoughts: I started this one after hearing so many recommendations. Unfortunately, this book falls flat for me with all of the sidebar plotting involving Hannah's interpersonal relationships with her mom and potential boyfriends. None of this extraneous stuff was integral to the storyline and after a while I began to feel very annoyed. I found it difficult to suspend disbelief towards many of Hannah's actions and many of the interactions with the supporting characters. I'm hoping this is due to it being the first book in the series and the characters are not yet fully developed.
Wolves In Chic Clothing by Carrie Karasyov & Jill Kargman
Rating: 6 *'s
My Thoughts: This book was a fast read with several amusing bits but for the most part, very predictable. It is sad and pathetic just how shallow some people can be. The only one in Lell's band of bitches I could tolerate at all was Hope. She at least displayed compassion though I wished she would stand up to Polly and Lell and tell them where to go. I thought Julia's roomie Douglas was a hoot. Not a lot of substance to this story but if you are looking for mind numbing fluff with some laughs, this should fit the bill.

Two Way Street by Lauren Barnholdt
A road trip with her ex? Danger ahead...
there are two sides to every breakup.
This is Jordan and Courtney, totally in love. Sure, they were an unlikely high school couple. But they clicked; it worked. They're even going to the same college, and driving cross-country together for orientation.
Then Jordan dumps Courtney -- for a girl he met on the Internet.
It's too late to change plans, so the road trip is on. Courtney's heartbroken, but figures she can tough it out for a few days. La la la -- this is Courtney pretending not to care.
But in a strange twist, Jordan cares. A lot.
Turns out, he's got a secret or two that he's not telling Courtney. And it has everything to do with why they broke up, why they can't get back together, and how, in spite of it all, this couple is destined for each other.
Un-bridaled by Eileen Rendahl
Sometimes your "happily ever after" takes an unexpected turn....
Call her crazy . . . .
With half her immediate family having been committed -- mentally speaking -- why can't Chloe Sachs commit? After all, she's always been considered the sane one in the family. But seconds before becoming Mrs. Mark Hutchinson, Chloe leaves her handsome, successful fiance at the altar and tears down Interstate 505 in her red Ford Frontier. Maybe it was the heat of a California June wedding. Maybe it was when a family tradition went awry before hundreds of shocked guests. Or maybe it was because she heard a voice telling her in no uncertain terms, Run! . . .
but just call her.
Now Chloe has no Plan B, two kooky dogs, one angry ex, and a truckload of wedding gifts to return. Taking refuge at her grandmother's, Chloe helps her renovate a bungalow that's been in the family for years --- and unearths some surprising secrets. She also discovers that leaving her heart open may invite some very intriguing guests --- like the beguiling veterinarian she can't get off her mind. And with her family and friends' help, Chloe realizes she's truly free . . . to follow her heart wherever it takes her.
