Wonderland Volume 5 (Wonderland #21-25) by Raven Gregory (Writer), Eric M. Esquivel (Writer), J.G. Miranda, (Artist)

23489402
Well as the Dark Queen's darkness spreads, Wonderland is going to hell and Calie must make a final stance.

The Void, who looks like James Franco except he/it is still a major prick.

We get a new player, in one of the Void's crazy games, Hazel who quickly joins forces with Calie.

Of course, Violet is always on her mom's side and in a leading to the "end", the Queen of Diamonds and the Queen of Clubs also join to finally bring an end to the evil Queen of Spades.

The art as always great, love that women are the leads and they don't need a male sidekick, however, this one lost points with me because the final fight was not climactic enough.

Although, I will say that in the end, everyone gets a somewhat happy ending, especially Diamond and Clubs. Plus, don't fret we will see more of Wonderland in Age of Darkness.

Impulsion by Jamie Magee

The first book in its series follows Wyatt Doran and Harley Tatum in a young romance that ends through misunderstandings, years later fate brings them back together and gives them a second chance to be together. All they have to do is let go of the past and they can have a happy ending

The story was good for its genre and I would have rated it higher, except I felt that I felt they let others basically come between them. Overall, still very enjoyable and I can't wait to see what else this series will deliver.

One Night with her Bachelor (Montana Born Bachelor Auction #6) by Kat Latham

25116964We finally  get Molly Dekker's story, from the beginning of the series we hear about the horrible accident Josh Dekker suffered and how his mother, Molly has been struggling with the bills and all. 

Although each book can be read as a stand-alone, reading at least book one and six together is a must as in book one we learn all about Lily and everything she does to help Molly and her godson Josh.

When Josh suffers his accident he is rescued by Gabriel Morales, a friend of his deceased uncle and wounded soldier dealing with his own traumas.

After Josh bids on him at the auction, he decides to gift the date to his mother (aww, what a sweetheart) because according to him, she smiles a lot when she thinks about Gabriel. 

Gabriel and Molly begin to get a lot closer and their feelings grow, however, Gabriel was badly wounded overseas and he has this fear that no one can love him with all his injuries, so in typical dumb guy mode he pushes Molly away. Molly of course, could care less about his injuries, she sees him, not his injuries. Eventually, Molly is able to knock some sense into Gabriel and together they move towards their happily ever after.

Molly and Josh were incredibly strong characters, despite everything that has happened to them, they hold strong and find a way to look for the bright side of things.

Gabriel was at times a bit too detached, but he's a wounded soldier suffering to adapt to the changes in his life. Overall, this book is a real page turner; the characters are realistic and very enjoyable

In Bed with the Bachelor (Montana Born Bachelor Auction #5) by Megan Crane

25116952The story followed Jesse Grey and Michaela Townsend two people who get roped into the Bachelor Auction by their nosy relatives.

Jesse Grey somehow gets volunteered by his uncle Jason Grey, the surly owner of Grey's Saloon. Jesse totally does not want to be there and even worse he is pissed off at the attraction he feels to the girl that ends up receiving him as a gift.

Michaela Townsend is there as part of an impromptu bachelorette party, her relatives decide to bid on a guy as a gift.

Michaela and Jesse end up stranded in a motel after a blizzard and soon their attraction and their issues come out, threatening what seems like a perfect connection.

I was not a huge fan on this one. The reason's being that Jesse was super hung up on his ex-girlfriend and what she did to him, which granted what a skank. Still, after three years move on; just because she was a skank doesn't mean every woman will be like that.

Next, I swear every time Michaela opened her mouth I wish I could punch her character in the face. Her "fiance" was such a sleaze and her whole rationalizing it. Her way of rationalizing her open relationship, in which only her "fiance", who didn't even give her a ring because it's an archaic form of ownership, gets to use the perks. Like WTF!!! Then, that she actually listens to him tell her about his liaisons, that mean absolutely nothing because they are just something animals do.

The characters did seem to have this connection, but they also spent too much time in their heads and analyzing everything. 

I did love that they finally deal with their issues and baggage to come together is a very romantic way.

What a Bachelor Needs (Montana Born Bachelor Auction #4) by Kelly Hunter

25077436Single mom Mardie Griffin has had it tough, she works like crazy and barely makes ends meets; she has no time for romance. Of course like that will deter her meddling best friend Ella Grace (if you love the Marietta Series you remember her from What a Bride Wants) from bidding on a man who is offering one week of handyman services.

Jett Casey remembers Mardie from a few years ago when he wished he could have helped her, now he gets a chance to help her despite her objections thanks to her meddling friend.

Mardie gradually opens up to Jett and they form a relationship. Jett knows Mardie has been seriously hurt in the past so he is willing to take things as slow as she wants to take them. I absolutely loved how Jett so easily fell Mardie and her little daughter Claire.

The characters were great and despite his very easygoing and laidback attitude, Jett is like the sweetest guy. Despite all her previous traumas, Mardie is still making a go at her life and giving her daughter everything she needs. The easy way the characters were with each other really made their story believable.

The Bachelor's Baby (Montana Born Bachelor Auction #3) by Dani Collins

24809005Meg Canon is back in Marietta to clean out her old room now that her brother's wife and step-daughter are moving into her childhood home. After accidentally ending up stuck in a ditch and getting rescued and propositioned by the very good looking new neighbor Linc Brady, she is grateful and irritated. 

In a weird form of flirting she actually sets him up so that Lily ends up recruiting him for the bachelor auction. As the reader you are laughing at how Linc gets roped into this, especially when Linc flips.

At the auction Meg feels bad to have set Linc up, so she decides to bid on him; however, Linc decides to bid on himself and soon these two are letting the sparks fly in a very hilarious fashion.

What they decide will only be for one night turns into a (it's a four letter word in the title) and Linc has to decide if he is ready to commit. 

The story was sweet and fun, the characters were enjoyable, especially their bickering, it was cute. It was endearing that despite being thrown into a relationship by circumstances, they get to know each other and they get a happy ending.
