1. The Sins of His Past by Roxanne St. Claire 5 *****
This story pulled at my heart and made me hoot with laughter. Nothing like a good competition of wills that ends up turning toward their hearts.
Deuce Monroe decided to come home to run his family’s bar since he “retired” from his Baseball career with the Nevada Snake Eyes. The minute he shows up he realizes that this was not the home he left. Things have drastically changed and the biggest change was the co-owner of Monroe’s, Kendra Locke. Kendra has big dreams for Monroe’s turning it into a “cyber salon,” as Deuce puts it. Seamus,Deuce’s father, decides that Kendra and Deuce need to work out what will happen with Monroe’s.”Let’s Play Ball!” Kendra is given days to run her cyber cafe and Deuce has nights to run his bar and the game begins. Can Kendra hit it out of the park while keeping her secret?
Extra’s : Poor Kendra, when Deuce walked in to the bar and throughout their story I had ‘Why ya Wanna’ by Jana Kramer running through my head. Thought I would share : Click here to watch and listen to Why ya Wanna by Jana Kramer
Sexy Deuce Monroe -Curling up in bed with him, Yum!
2. Tangling with Ty by Jill Shalvis 4 ****
I enjoyed this one, but I felt more like and observer then a participant. Bad boy Ty Patrick O’Grady is a man with a very dark past who stays one step ahead of his haunting memories by wandering. The sexy Architect makes an appearance when Nicole, a tenant, finds him cursing up a storm in a thick Irish accent.(Oh Yeah!) Nicole is a very young, smart Doctor who doesn’t take crap from anyone and lives to save lives. Taylor, the landlord and matchmaker, hires Ty to fix the building and he can’t help but want to take care of Nicole in more than one way. Just when their relationship starts to take off Ty’s secret is about to unravel and Nicole shields herself with her job. With a little luck,or bad luck, from a ceiling Ty and Nicole come to know each other. Can they reconcile what they dreamed their lives would be to what they could be together?
3. Whatever Reilly Wants by Maureen Child 4.5 ****

Tongue-tied and temperature rising he doesn’t know if he wants to make her his or stay friends. Emma is underhanded in her attempt to get Connor to lose, by going out of her way to tempt him. Her attempt bites her in the butt when the tables are turned on her. Lots of steamy sex and plenty of wit. Can they save their friendship or will they have to part ways?
Extra’s : I loved that Liam’s housekeeper makes horrible tea and him and Emma had to drink it. Hilarious. Also loved what Connor did for Em in the end! But I can’t tell you have to pick up the book and read it for yourself!
Overall I enjoyed these stories. I haven’t read much in the way of contemporary romance area, but found that I enjoyed these authors and will be reading more of their books.
