Taking Shots

17504320Elli Fisher has never thought she was good enough, let it be her job, her weight, her love life, nothing. That is until she meets Shea Adler. After doing a promotional shoot for the NHL team, the Assassins, she meets the hunky hockey player who shoots a puck, shattering her world.
Shea Adler was tired of the life he was living outside of the rink. The girls, the money blowing, the drinking, everything had to stop and it all did when he met Eleanor Fisher. He had never met anyone like her. She was feisty, witty, shy, and simply gorgeous. When he laid eyes on her, it was as if he was taking the hardest hit of his life into the boards, and he had to have her. Elli is a little skeptical of Shea, but he knows that they were meant to be together, and he needed her in his life.
Can Elli throw her insecurities out the window and love Shea with everything inside of her, or will she let a past relationship, and her family ruin any chance of her being happy.

My Thoughts on the Book

This is a very sweet story about a girl learning to trust herself and the man she falls in love with. It was very well done and Shea is wonderful to Elli. I did find that it was longer then it needed to be, I don't mind long books at all but this one did have a lot of pages of nothing going on and not setting up for this story or the next. It might have been a 5 star read for me if it was edited a bit more but I still cried happy tears at the end so clearly I still loved it!

20530956The New York Times and USA Today bestselling Marked Men series continues with this sizzling, sexy story of love, heartbreak, fate, and second chances.

After the only girl he ever loved told him that he would never be enough, Rowdy St. James knocked the Texas dust off his boots and set out to live up to his nickname. A good ol’ boy looking for good times and good friends, Rowdy refuses to take anything too seriously, especially when it comes to the opposite sex. Burned by love once, he isn’t going to let himself trust a woman again. But that’s before his new co-worker arrives, a ghost from the past who’s suddenly making him question every lesson he ever learned.

Salem Cruz grew up in house with too many rules and too little fun—a world of unhappiness she couldn’t wait to forget. But one nice thing from childhood has stayed with her; the memory of the sweet, blue-eyed boy next door who’d been head over heels in love with her little sister.

Now, fate and an old friend have brought her and Rowdy together, and Salem is determined to show him that once upon a time he picked the wrong sister. A mission that is working perfectly—until the one person that ties them together appears, threatening to tear them apart for good.

My Thoughts on the Book

Could not put down, cried a little and want to reread my favorite scenes again and again. These are my top 3 reasons to give a book 5 stars and this book should have 6! Rowdy might just be my favorite of the Marked Men books but I might have said that about the last one and the one before that. There are just something about these boys and their family of friends that you just want to love and support as much as they do. I also noted that Jay added a few more characters to the family in this book it was brilliantly done with the right amount of care and heart but with out taking over the Rowdy story line. I very much hope this means we will have many more Marked books to come.
