I’d like to thank Enticing Journey for sending me an e-arc of this book it is very much appreciated. So I love Winter Travers when it comes to MC she is one of my favourite authors. I loved her Fallen Lords series and when that ended I was sad but then I started this one and got over it. I loved all the other books and have reviews for them. They are: Drop a Gear and Disappear, Lean Into It, Knees in the Breeze and Midnight Wreckage and I loved them all. So when it comes to Winter Travers my expectations are high and she does not disappoint.
Thrill Seeker follows Point and his estranged wife Deedra as for the first time in three years they are thrown together and can’t stop bumping into each other since Midnight Wreckage when she was reporting on Gunner’s story. I think I only have one complaint and that is that this actually wasn’t angsty enough for me. I wanted more angst but it was still good nevertheless.
Deedra is described many times through this as cold and a bitch but I think as soon as Point starts pushing his way back into her life wanting to know why she left she begins to open up to him and honestly I loved the moment she was finally honest with him and why she didn’t stay. It was a shit reason on her part but I’m glad that she told him the truth.
Point I loved him in the other novels and let me tell you he didn’t disappoint. I loved him in this book and learning more about his past and how he and Deedra got together but also broke up. Although our boy instead of dealing with his issues for the first few chapter just drank his problems away which you know sometimes mood. He soon got his butt into gear to go and get his woman.
I really liked them they were cute together and they definitely knew how to push each other’s buttons which also sometimes resulted in some grown up adult time. Which Winter Travers really does know how to write her sex scenes.
I also loved seeing all the other characters they are just a big family and I love it, like they just it’s like being at home and you could just imagine being there with them and know its true and I love it. Honestly it’s one of the reasons why I still read her books because all the characters play and important part
As always with her books I have a few honourable scenes in this that deserved to be mentioned these aren’t spoiling anything either so you don’t have to worry about that.
The first mention is the scene where they go to the shelter and it’s the lead up to the way the girls act and then Point’s attitude it had me creasing I couldn’t stop chuckling.
The second one and by far the best where I had to put the book down because I was laughing way too much and when I reread the scene I was still laughing. I could just imagine how it would be in real life and I think that’s what I loved. The girls are all drunk and there is some terrible jokes and honestly I was in a fit of giggles if you’ve read this book you know exactly what I mean.
So in terms of the plot we have a set up in this book which I believe will continue in the next book and honestly it’s going to be so good! Also Brick comes out of prison soon and if we don’t get his book with detective Kaye I will be sad about that.
I’d like to thank Enticing Journey Promotions for sending me an e-arc of this book it is very much appreciated. So I have so many thoughts with this book and so many mixed feelings with this book. This book had so much potential and for me it very much fell flat and there was many reasons why it did for me and I’m so sad because I wanted to love it but I didn’t.
The beginning was very well done it got me hooked straight away and I was interested then it sort of just got information dump and I got bored. But then as that was happening there was some stuff going off that I thought was over dramatic like it did not need to be that dramatic. Like it was OTT and It made me roll my eyes so many times anytime there was the drama.
In terms of the plot, everything happened really fast but it didn’t actually build enough I felt like we was having everything thrown at us without any real plot being built enough which was a shame because this could have been done so well and so good and it just didn’t hit that for me. It was so below the bar it just didn’t work. I felt like we really could have had more plot built, we had the town being all suspicious but again it was made to sound very cliche like any quiet town, majority of them had weird stuff.
The characters Ellie and Cal again had so much potential but I really didn’t like either of these characters, I couldn’t connect with them. Although they both had really good chemistry with each other and I liked the friendship/romance they built although it felt really insta lovey and just not real enough for me.
The book ended with more questions than ever and for me that just was kind of like a ‘oh I have to read the next book’ and quite honestly I am hoping the second book is better than this one because I just didn’t enjoy this as much as I could have. I found myself getting slightly bored and just not keeping attention.
The drama didn’t really have any merit to it, I would have preferred the information to be drip fed to us rather than lumped and yet have some answers to the questions rather than leaving them all unanswered.
So for me this book fell very flat and I’m disappointed by that but I am willing to give the author a second chance because you know as annoyed as I was by this book I also want answers but for me it’s not going to be a book I rush to pick up it will be one I do when I’m kind of bored.
A Snowflake Christmas – Can a blooming love that becomes forbidden survive fears and rumors?It’s supposed to be the most wonderful time of the year, but … Dr. Alan Garcia uproots his practice in Miami to Snowflake, Montana, hoping to escape career-ending false-accusations and find a fresh start in the small mountain town. Alan isn’t looking for love, but when Rachel Welch brings her nephew in for an office visit, her neighborly generosity and family-first philosophy moves his heart like no woman he’s previously known.Rachel Welch, a native of Snowflake, has suffered from PTSD ever since the car accident that seriously injured her parents. Dr. Garcia is her best hope to find relief from panic attacks, but one look into his dark eyes and Rachel knows that a doctor-patient dynamic is far from the relationship she wants.With Christmas right around the corner, maybe Rachel and Alan’s snowballing romance will survive Alan’s pride, Rachel’s fears, and Snowflake’s rumors. That is – if spending time together outside of the office doesn’t get them both fired first.
I’d like to thank Enticing Journey Book promotions for sending me an e-arc of this book it is very much appreciated. So after reading Jingle Wars I was ready for another Christmas romance and luckily for me this was the next arc I had due. So I dived straight into it.
Rachel has lived in snowflake majority of her life other than to go to nursery school, she tries to stare clear of men because romance just hasn’t gone right for her. Especially after the last doctor left because she wouldn’t date him. She decided to steer clear and just focus on other things.
Alan has issues of his own, his practice ruined he relocates to Snowflake for a 90 day trial period at a new job. We see him go through a lot during this book but I love how we’re told the information.
Pretty soon Rachel and Alan begin to work together there’s just one problem. There’s no dating or immediate dismissal for one of both of them. Which kinda doesn’t make sense because they were set up on a date??
So the setting of this book was really cute snowflake sounds like the perfect little town to be in. I really liked it and I’d want to live myself. I felt the side characters were diverse very good mix. I just say I think my one con is that for me there wasn’t enough romance for me and that’s really kind of what let the side down.
I’d like to thank Enticing Journey Book Promotions for sending me an e-arc of this book I am really grateful! So I have not read from either of these authors before although I realised just as I started to read this book that I follow Veronica Eden on TikTok which I totally did not realise until she posted a video saying that her book was coming out. I was like I have an arc of this I didn’t even realise you were the same people.
So this is the first Christmas-y story I’ve read this year and oh my god it set the mood real well. Honestly it was the perfect cute little Christmas story to start getting me in the mood. It had the right amount of romance and banter and even the plot was great and kept me hooked.
So we meet Finn who is under so much pressure to try and save the family inn, pressure he put on himself but he wants to make sure his grams and grandpa have their business that they worked so hard for. He’s really sweet and extremely hot. I really liked his character and he had so many funny moments. I loved his character.
Freya at first I was like damn this girl seems so far out of reality. Then she soon starts getting more realistic at least with her fashion choices. She is on a mission to prove to daddy that she can run his latest hotel. Although her dad is an ass, like a really big one. No redeeming qualities but thankfully Freya does she begins to realise just what Christmas is about and how it feels to fit in and I love how much she changes over the period of this novel. She doesn’t need them.
I live for the pettiness between these two characters, Finn calling her a traitor I just it made me laugh so much and I loved the sexual tension and chemistry between these two characters it was so perfect. Honestly the amount of near kisses we had was so many and I was screaming like kiss already. Let me tell you the wait was worth it. That kiss.
Also if you’ve read this book you will know what I mean when I say the Hot Springs scene, that was hot. Knock your socks off hella hot. The writing was amazing and I loved it, gave all the feels and it was so good.
I did cry at this book. I was emotional. I love Grams and Grandpa they were adorable and with their meddling when it came to getting Finn and Freya together was hilarious and I loved it.
Also on a side note I need a West and Riley story. I think I remember seeing that we are getting one.
The plot was amazing following them doing the jingle wars which is a series of competitions and the winner ones a huge chunk of prize money, Finn enters to save the inn. Freya enters to try and prove to her dad that she can run the business and she is right for the fit. Both have high stakes!
This really was the perfect little Christmas story and I can’t wait to read more from this duo.
