Review: Veer (Clayton Falls, #2) by Alyssa Rose Ivy

Veer was better than the first book, but I still didn’t enjoy it that much. This time we’re following Gavin and Molly’s best friend from Boston, Becca. Becca just found out that she wasn’t getting her summer job at the DA office, but Molly found her something at the local law firm. So Becca is on her way to small town living. Her car breaks down, and she’s rescued by Gavin but they get off on the wrong foot. I really liked this initial tension between them. Of course, as they run into each other more, that tension turns into something else.

Review: Derailed (Clayton Falls, #1) by Alyssa Rose Ivy

I put off reading Derailed for quite awhile, but I was pretty eager to get to it once I decided that it was time. Sadly, it just really did not work for me. I liked the idea of Molly returning to her childhood home to figure out what to do with her life after her fiance dies. That probably sounds morbid, but it’s a change of pace from other books in the genre. I was also hoping that this would be a second chance romance that actually works for me, but this wasn’t it either. Ben was just the absolute worst and I could not get behind him and Molly as a couple. Or behind him at all.

Mini Review: The Summer of You (The Blue Raven, #2) by Kate Noble

The Summer of You was fun, but I did like the first book better. This time we’re following Lady Jane and Byrne, whom we met last time. Jane is attending her recently refriended friend Philippa’s wedding when her brother suddenly returns. He wants to send Jane and their father to their country estate, since their father isn’t doing too well. Jane refuses to be banished, so she blackmails Jason into accompanying her. There she becomes reacquainted with Byrne Worth aka The Blue Raven. But their tiny town doesn’t view him as the hero he is. They believe he’s the highwayman who’s been terrorizing everyone.

Review: Her Hesitant Heart by Carla Kelly

I was expecting Her Hesitant Heart to be a sweet Western Romance, and it was. Sadly, it was also quite boring once the romance portion actually started. Susanna has left her life in Pennsylvania behind. Well, she’s actually saving her life by leaving, since her husband is sure to kill her in his drunken stupor. Luckily, she has a cousin at Fort Laramie and a teaching position lined up for when she arrives. Unluckily, she can’t afford the whole trip. But Joe is heading that way and invites Susanna to join him for the rest of the journey.
