A DATE WITH DANGER by Kari Iroz — #amreading #books #bookreview

A DATE WITH DANGER by Kari Iroz. I had mixed feelings about this book. The first chapter was hilarious. I was laughing and smiling and couldn't wait for the next chapter. From there I felt like Jack almost had a split personality for a little while. She jumped through emotions and thought processes in a way I couldn't follow. However, by the middle of the book I was sucked in and loved the rest of it. Once Jack settled into one personality things fell into place and I enjoyed her story. I loved the banter between Jack and Damon. There were good clues scattered throughout the book in a way that you didn't realize it was a clue until the end. It is a good read once you get past the first little bit. It's a clean read that I can recommend to anyone who loves suspense, mystery novels with a dash of romance.

She just wanted to shake up her love life. Jacklyn (Jack) Wyatt is the typical twenty-five-year-old living the typical Provo single life with the typical bad luck— at least until the FBI recruits her for a completely different type of dating.
A young woman has gone missing, and all signs point to her online dating profile as the kidnapper’s operating ground. But when suspects who crossed paths with the missing girl begin contacting Jack, the FBI sees its opportunity for an inside man—er, woman.
Now Jack will have to play the field, dating each of the men in an attempt to weed out the kidnapper. But with such an unusual array of characters vying for her attention, pinpointing the culprit may prove even harder than finding Mr. Right. And as more young women disappear, will Jack stay professional and objective, even with the handsome Special Agent Damon Wade just a whisper in her hidden microphone away?

WILLOWKEEP by @juliedaines — #amreading #books #review

WILLOWKEEP by Julie Daines. I really enjoyed this clean read. It was good to see someone who came into wealth not fall into what people consider the norm for wealthy individuals. I loved seeing Charlotte shock everyone with the life and experiences she had growing up. The relationships were well protrayed, and I appreciated the lengths that Charlotte went to in order to protect her sister and keep her little family together. It is a wonderful story that is full of life, love, strength, loyalty, and endurance. I would highly recommend it to anyone who loves a fantastic, clean romance.

Charlotte Darby’s ship is sinking. Penniless and alone, she is struggling to care for herself and her young sister in the harsh seaport town of Hull. But when a solicitor from London brings news that she is the heir to a vast estate in Kent, it seems her days of rough seas are over. Willowkeep is prosperous and grand, far too much for a shipping merchant’s daughter to manage, and she quickly comes to rely on the help of Henry Morland, the estate’s kind and handsome steward.
Henry has worked hard his entire life, but all the money he’s saved won’t be enough to get his father out of debtor’s prison. And Henry’s fondness for Charlotte and her sister is only another reminder of his low status and lack of wealth. Though he is willing to do whatever it takes to keep Charlotte happy and looked after as the county’s wealthiest lady, she can never be his.
Courted by a charming man of the ton, threatened by those who want her money, and determined to keep her sister safe from the same fate that cost her the rest of her family, Charlotte must face some heartrending decisions. For no matter the size of the fortune, life—and love—are never smooth sailing.
