The Billionaire Single Dad by Mandy Baxter

Ms. Baxter does it again, with another fun and delightful story.

Carter Christensen lost his wife two years ago and now his life is all about playing football and his five year old daughters. Granted he's making a mistake or two as a single father, well his little girls are planning their escape and they have secret lair and everything, in neighbor's Tess Adams barn.

Tess Adams isn't looking for love, after being betrayed by her boyfriend and her best friend she is just happy to be. Then she meets two adorable little girls planning their getaway and soon their daddy.

Okay this story was sweet and lovely; I was swooning with how dedicated Carter was to his deceased wife. There was a time or two when I wanted Carter to move on and not be such a jerk to Tess, but I forgave him because he was scared of moving on and he does do a nice groveling scene.

Christmas With the Billionaire Rancher by Mandy Baxter

I love Ms. Baxter's works; she has a way of drawing the reader into her stories.

Nate Christensen isn't looking for love, between past betrayals and some traumas he's just looking to get past his father's funeral.

Chloe Benson is looking for some serious money to save her charity.

After one night together Nate starts to think he might be able to build something with Chloe; Chloe will now seek her money elsewhere.

When old trouble and new secret come back to haunt them will they stand strong or not?

Like all of Ms. Baxter's works, this one does not disappoint, however, I would have loved if we got to see the confrontation between Nate and his ex and maybe a little more groveling on his part.

Stepbrother, Mine #3 (Stepbrother, Mine #3) by Opal Carew

The story has come to an end and as a parting we get one last crazy twist and a lot more of Mason being a jerk.

After X event which I will not give away Mason sends Dana away in the most callous and cruel way possible. At the end Mason gets his head on straight and goes after Dana, but there was not enough groveling.

I wanted to see Mason grovel a whole lot more, and maybe throw in a diamond ring or something to convince the girl

Stepbrother, Mine #2 (Stepbrother, Mine #2) by Opal Carew

Part two picks up where part one left off. 

At this point I'm kind of hating Mason, he plays hot and cold. Like we get it, some 8 years ago she was your step-sister for like a year, but come on.

Dana, Dana, Dana; there is absolutely no way a girl can be that naive. She begins to get a little annoying.

This one I didn't feel was that strong; I did not feel the connection.

Stepbrother, Mine #1 (Stepbrother, Mine #1) by Opal Carew

Ms. Carew brings us a new crazy romance with twist and turns and drama published in three parts. 

In part one Dana and Mason see each other again after so many years. This part was a little slow in terms of the two main characters, but as an erotic romance it delivered.

Choose Me, Cowboy (2015 Montana Born Rodeo, #4) by Barbara Ankrum

I had mixed feelings about this one, for all Finn Scott claims to love Kate Canaday I honestly think that had he not run into her at the school when his son fell, he never would have sought her out.

Finn knew when he moved to Marietta this is where Kate was from and ultimately throughout the story I felt like she did all the work in their relationship.

The only happy thing in this story was that Kate gets the guy she loves at the end

Taming the Italian Bad Boy by Joanne Walsh

Shy sweet girl with an overbearing, crazy mother, meets sexy Italian stallion.

When Lucy Luxton's pet runs Danilo Spinozzi off the road it's attraction at first sight.

Danilo sees this Lucy and is struck by her quiet beauty, he makes an overture of friendship in the hopes of seeing her again when she moves to the same town in Italy where he lives.

Lucy is hesitant to contact Danilo, but a road encounter with Danilo's dog brings these two back together.

The story was sweet, they date, they get to know each other and the town's bad boy goes from being a commitment-phobe to the most devoted guy ever.

We do have a little drama when Danilo's ex tries to come between him and Lucy but Danilo stands strong and makes it very clear Lucy is the one for him.

I would have loved to see Lucy stand up to Danilo's ex or her ex for that matter, but over all this story just has you going awww.
