I read 4 good books in March that I would recommend. I read a few that I would not recommend so we won’t talk about those. I didn’t have a lot of free time to read this month unfortunately but there were a few books that I knew I wanted to read so I used my reading time wisely.
1. Mulberry Moon by Catherine Anderson– After a career on the rodeo circuit, Ben Sterling longs to settle down on his farm and start a family like his brothers. He’s searched all over for the woman of his dreams. Yet the only one to spark his interest is the new owner of the local café. Getting her attention, however, won’t be easy. Sissy Sue Bentley has worked hard to make it on her own, and she doesn’t need another man in her life. From her alcoholic father to the men she’s dated, who were after only one thing, they are nothing but trouble. Except Ben keeps showing up whenever she really needs help. Sissy struggles to deny her growing feelings for him—but soon Ben’s tender concern has her hoping for a happier future. Then her past comes barreling back into her life, and it will take more than the love in Ben’s heart to hold them together.
I love Catherine Anderson, she’s one of my favorite authors and I’m always excited when she has a new release. I enjoyed this book. It took awhile to get the story build up but once it got going it was really good. I liked both main characters and I liked them together. There were some twists that I wasn’t expecting. This is part of a series but each book stands alone.
2. Cole by Tijan– I shouldn’t have remembered him. He was just a guy who walked through a restaurant. I didn’t know his name. We never made eye contact. There was no connection between us at all. But I could feel him.
The tingle down my spine. The command in his presence. The snap of tension in the air around him. That was the first time I saw him, and I was captivated. The second time was different. He was in the mysterious back elevator of my apartment building. Our eyes met for a fleeting second before the doors closed, and I was staggered. My breath was robbed. My senses on high alert. My body hummed. That was just the beginning. He was the leader of the mafia. I was about to fall in love with him, and his name…Cole Mauricio.
I love Tijan. Her Carter Reed series is one of my most favorites ever and this book is part of that series. There’s action, there’s violence, there’s a hot alpha male, and there’s mafia. What else do you need? I definitely recommend reading this series in order so you get the full story.
3. Moving Target by Lynette Eason– When Maddy McKay and Quinn Holcombe don’t show up for Quinn’s surprise birthday party, his friends know that something is very wrong. Their search turns up little beyond evidence that Quinn and Maddy just decided to take off for a long overdue vacation. But it soon becomes apparent that they did not leave of their own accord. Maddy awakens in a cement room with no idea where she is. But it’s not long before she realizes she’s in the clutches of a madman exacting revenge by hunting. His prey of choice? Humans. Now Maddy and Quinn must run for their lives, hoping to find their killer before the next game begins. Because if they don’t win this game, they die.
This series is so good! There’s so much action and suspense and romance. It’s fantastic. This one is probably my favorite of the series. I could not put it down! You can read the books in any order but they are really good when you have the backstory on all the characters.
4. Claiming Grace by Susan Stoker– For Logan Anderson, moving on from a traumatic past means moving back to his hometown of Castle Rock, Colorado, to start a personal-security business with his brothers. But it’s not long before Logan runs into Grace Mason, his best friend from high school…and the woman who never answered his letters during his Army years. Grace was pleasantly surprised to see Logan return to Castle Rock, despite their falling-out ten years ago. Everyone always assumed they would end up together, including Grace, who had eyes only for him. But as Logan eventually escaped their town, Grace got pulled further into her family’s controlling grasp—and farther away from the man she loved. Now, united by scars both visible and not, the two must fight to free Grace from the suffocating hold of her family. But the Masons won’t let go easily—and they’ll do whatever it takes to keep the couple apart.
Susan Stoker is another one of my favorite authors. This is the first book in her new series. I enjoyed it, probably not as much as her other 2 series but it was really good. I think I love her other characters so much that starting a new series was hard for me. I know, I’m a freak.
I’m looking forward to reading some more great books in April. It’s getting warm outside so I plan to spend some time out on the deck reading while the kids play in the yard. I love Spring!
