Deadly Surrender, Katie Reus

Deadly Surrender, Katie Reus

Deadly Surrender (The Serafina: Sin City Series Book 5) by [Katie Reus]

Genre: Romance
I hadn’t read the earlier books, but each are stand alone and it wasn’t an issue.
I’ve read several of Katie’s stories now, and while this wasn’t my favourite it was a fun easy read.
Its a sexy romance, Logan is drop dead gorgeous, and unknown to each other they’ve felt more that either have admitted. Then they have one hot, sex fueled night after a few drinks and…well, Logan knows he wants more but doesn’t want to frighten her off, Grace wants more but thinks it was just alcohol, that Logan isn’t the settling type. Then the bullets start coming, and they don’t know if someone is after one or both of them. The suspects pile up too, and its hard trying to keep one step ahead, but it does throw them together where things move on.
Its a quick, easy tale, an enjoyable story but not one that I’d reread.

Stars: Three, a simple romance with bullets and danger.

Coffee Girl (Coffee Book Book 1) by [Sinclair, Sophie]

Genre: Romance
I saw this on netgalley, but its a debut read and stories like this can be real gems or really dire…and as a debut read I didn’t know which it would be for me. Its on KU though so I borrowed it and it proved to be a fun and easy read.
Kiki is cute, looking for a new job, and not wanting to be her sisters nanny. Don’t blame her, neither would I! It was really funny reading her impossible timetable lits of what to do and how to do it.
She ends up being an assistant dresser for Country star Tatum. Kiki isn’t a country fan so has no idea who he is but when she sees him there’s an instant attraction. He’s got a superstar girlfriend though, and Kiki isn’t in the market to mess her new job.
Of course its superstarland, where everything is not as it seems, there are secrets, distrust, backbiting and bitchiness. There’s also sweet relationships, good friendships and loyalty. Tatum is mistrustful though, having worked his way up the hard way and Kiki can’t believe he’s really interested in her….
I loved Kiki and Tatum, loved Lex, Sarah, even Jess. Of course I love the mean girls too and there were two great ones here, for me they add so much to a story. What I am getting tired of though is the obligatory stereotyped Gay Best Friend and TJ was all of that. Characters like his seem to crop up constantly, as best friends, love advice, dressing and styling maestros. I’m just getting tired of gays – well, gay men, getting pigeonholed like this. Sophie does the character well, its just I’m bored with seeing this character crop up in every other romance. Time to let those guys break out of the mould authors 😉

Stars: Four, a solid debut read, fun story, great characters and I’m looking forward to book two.
