Fabulous Historical Romance!

Wicked Wyckerly (Rebellious Sons Book 1) (Rebellious Sons Series) - Patricia Rice

Wicked Wyckerly by Patricia Rice is an outstanding historical romance.  Ms. Rice has provided readers with a well-written book.  I love the characters in this story.  Fitz has just become the 7th Earl of Danecroft, a bankrupt estate and a sea of people wanting money from him.  Abigail is a country girl, happy with her crops but now needs a man to help her get her young siblings back home where they belong.  Fitz and Abigail's story is loaded with drama, humor, spice, action and a little suspense.  I enjoyed reading Wickey Wyckerly and look forward to reading my next book by Patricia Rice.  Wicked Wyckerly is book 1 of the Rebellious Sons Series but can easily be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

Deadlock - Cherrie Lynn

Deadlock is my first book by Cherrie Lynn, but it won't be my last.  Ms. Lynn has delivered a well-written book.  The characters are fabulous and are my favorite part of the book.  Lindsey's twin sister is missing.  She has one text from her sister telling her she's in trouble and for her to go to a certain address for help.  Jace hated Lena after she got him tossed out of MIT.  When Lindsey arrives looking like Lena Jace doesn't believe her and sends her on her way.  Jace and Lindsey's story is packed with drama, action, humor, sex and suspense.  I enjoyed every page of this book and hope to read more from Cherrie Lynn soon.  Deadlock is book 1 of the Hacker World Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.  But there is a really good hook that will make you want to buy the next book in the series in the epilogue.  

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book that I received from NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Very short ADULT book

Confessing And Coming Out Of The Closet To My Boss - R.P. James

Confessing And Coming Out Of The Closet To My Boss by R.P. James is a very, very short read.  The book ends at the 45% mark in the Kindle, the first book was short on story, long on sex.  Since the first story was just meh, I didn't bother to read any of whatever else was stuffed in the back of this book.  This is a M/M adult story, not for everyone.
