Review: Mann Cakes

Mann Cakes Mann Cakes by Mysti Parker
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Truly awesomely fun read in this book. While away serving their country, the business that twin brothers Tanner and Garrett started with their friend is destroyed and their friend is lost too. Trying to recover from this, they move back home and buy a restaurant that is for sale; planning to sell savory cupcakes. They come smack up against the two girls that neither man has forgotten since high school, Paige and Morgan, who also run a cupcake/bakery business. And the sparks fly.

But their problems follow them and trouble ensues, both of the mystery/suspicious kind; and of the romantic kind. You get two romances in one book, and it's an awesome book that you just must put on your to read list. The story takes place in the rolling hills of Kentucky, which is a plus for me, as I'm from Kentucky.

Review: What Once Was Perfect

What Once Was Perfect What Once Was Perfect by Zoe York
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

This book was disappointing. Wasn't very Christmassy. Didn't like the female lead character. The guy was so-so. The story was one I had read before. Guy lets girl go. She becomes famous, comes back home. He falls for her again. She acts like an ass for a while. They have sex a lot. Guy totally rearranges his life for HER!

Pardon me, but I grew up in a day and age when the woman rearranged her life for the guy. I mean, if she REALLY cares about him, she'd be willing to do that. But in books like this, the girl is never willing to uproot and rearrange her life for the guy, but she expects the guy to do just that. I mean, come on!

So tired of books like this. I like good old fashioned romance.

Review: Christmas with Angel

Christmas with Angel Christmas with Angel by Lexi Post
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

This book is mostly about them trying to find places to have sex. The latter part of this very short book isn't too bad, but it's best read if you've read the other books in this series.
Seriously, if you haven't read any other books about these characters, don't bother with this one.

Seems like a nice enough set, but just didn't catch my interest. Couldn't get into the story, so moved on to another book.

Review: A Christmas Worth Billions

A Christmas Worth Billions A Christmas Worth Billions by Jaclyn Hardy
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

This book isn't Christmassy, it's depressing. Yeah, I know, real life and that stuff happens and all ..... but, ........ I read books to get away from all that stuff. The book starts out with the guy moaning and crushingly sad because his wife is gone. And the mom is just plain stupid! She's lets her kids sleep in the cold and doesn't accept help the church would give because, "she wants to show she can do it on her own". I mean, how stupid a character can you get?!!?

Let me tell you, when you're down and out, you take whatever help anyone is willing to offer; and you shove that 'do it on your own' crap right where it goes - right out the door and into the garbage.

I didn't get far into this book because one character is insanely depressing, and the other character is colossally stupid. I have better books to read.

Review: Pastels and Jingle Bells

Pastels and Jingle Bells Pastels and Jingle Bells by Christine S. Feldman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a touching book that will speak to anyone who has ever been teased or bullied. It's a great book to read, and very Christmassy. I mean, what's a girl to do when her the school bully from her past turns out to be a single dad with a little girl who is being picked on? Just melt into a puddle, that's what. It's a great book and a good holiday read, so check it out.
