Never Say No o a Caffarelli by Melanie Milburne

"I play by the rules, but they're my rules." Poppy Silverton is as untouched as the leafy English village where she runs a tearoom. But her home, her livelihood and her innocence are under threat....
Rafe Caffarelli is a mouthwatering specimen of Mediterranean manhood. He's a playboy billionaire and determined to buy Poppy's historic dower house.
Poppy will not give up the only thing that remains of her childhood and family. She'll fight Rafe--and her attraction to him--all the way. And be the first woman to say "no" to a Caffarelli!

I recieved Never Say No to a Caffarelli as a prize in a contest. You can purchase it for $3.82 on Amazon.

I rated it 4 of 5 stars

Rafe is a very confident yet arrogant business man that knows what he wants and feels that everyone has a price when it comes to getting what he wants. Poppy is a stubborn woman that is determined to keep her home despite the large amount of money Rafe offers her. When he fails to pay her off Rafe goes to the small town to try in person. It's instant attraction but Poppy is determined to fight her feelings. Slowly they get to know more about each other and the inevitable happens. The only real issue I had was it seemed like Poppy was constantly trying to cause problems by bringing up his past lovers. I really enjoyed the book and look forward to reading what happens to his brothers.

The Valentine Monster Written and Illustrated by Cassidy Castle

Razzle lives in the snowy mountains above the town of Heartsworth, and her favorite day of the year is Valentine's Day. Usually she celebrates the day all by herself, but this year, she decides to visit the town and find friends to help her celebrate. Who will befriend this little monster that loves Valentine's Day?

This fully illustrated children's book is perfect for ages 4-8.

I found this book as a free run on Amazon. You can now purchase it for $.99

I gave it 3 out of 5 stars.

The book is very cute and will draw the attention of most children it does have a few flaws. The story is very rushed. It needs a bit more detail in it; yes-even Children’s Books need detail. And the text and picture are on separate pages, people read the text then see the picture. It would be a better read if they were on the same page.
But there is a great point to the story and the children are very sweet. I am interested in reading more of Ms. Castle’s work.

A Snowball's Chance (Enhanced Edition) By Cherry Adair

Snowball's Chance Enhanced (A Short Story) 
Originally Published 2005 

Cherry Adair New York Times bestselling author gives the gift that keeps on giving: a gripping tale of special agents in a covert agency, out to protect the innocent . . . by any means necessary. 

Kendall decks the halls, unaware that a serial killer has her on the top of his list. Of course, being naughty with the sexy good guy sent to protect her would be so nice.

I bought this book in Amazon for $2.99. You can still purchase for that price.

I rated it 4 out of 5 stars

Kendall is a spunky woman that has fought to overcome her fear of attack after she helped put away the man that tried to kill her. Joe is a tall drink of water hired to protect Kendall when her would-be killer escapes prison and comes for her.
I'm not a fan of instant love but Cherry puts a whole new spin on it that makes it very enjoyable. Plenty of sass, action and yummy bedroom…err mostly, scenes to keep the story rolling. I hated that it ended so quick but I would read it again in a heartbeat. I did enjoy that the enhanced addition includes character profiles, inspiration pictures and an interview in the back. Makes it so worth the extra dollar for the book.
