Reads from the TBR Pile.....

Snow-Kissed Love 3 Book Box Set (Snow Kissed Love, #1-3)Snow-Kissed Love 3 Book Box Set by Violet Vaughn

3.5 stars - Worth a Reader's Time

A Box set of three connected stand alone books in sequential order. All 3 books are good and the stories are each a little different. Our casts of characters are pulled from the early to mid 20 somethings that have all relocated to Breckenridge, CO to be ski instructors.
Book 1 is the story of Casey and Jason and their second chance at true love. This had some truly funny moments as Casey tried to move on with a different relationship. It was sweet to see both characters figure out what is really important and to learn that having open conversations can help people grow as a couple.
Book 2 is Lori and Kaleb. Their's is more of a traditional meet cute with a dash of intrigue thrown and bruised ego thrown in.
Gretchen and Derrick's story in Book 3 is probably the one I liked least. It wasn't a bad book, I just had a harder time connecting with the characters and getting invested in their story.
Overall, this is a fun box set to read and it's definitely worth the time.

 Not Yet (Not Yet, #1)Not Yet by Laura Ward

My rating: 4 of 5 stars - Would Recommend to a friend

This is such a sweet story with a dash of sexy and a tiny smidge of the forbidden.
Emma is a young college grad who has returned home to help her family - putting her dreams on hold - when she meets the slightly younger Landon at the pool where they are both working for the summer.
They were having a typical summer romance and falling in love when life throws them a giant curve ball. I don't want to spoil anything - so no details about what the curveball is, but I will say that how both Emma and Landon handled it made me like and respect them both even more.
There is just enough angst that I appreciated the happy ending and I liked how the author gave us glimpses of Landon and Emma down the road, so that the story felt truly complete. The secondary cast is a lot of fun and they play key roles in the evolution of our characters.
Ms. Ward is a new author for me, but I am definitely curious to see if she has other work available.

 Dirty Dom (Valetti Crime Family #1)Dirty Dom by Willow Winters

My rating: 3 of 5 stars - Average Read

This was interesting, but not a whole lot of meat to the story or a ton of character development. The story was fairly easy to follow, but I felt like there could have been so much more done with it.
If you are looking for a quick read with lots of sexy time, then this would be a good read.
