Winning Cash

Losing Game by Tracie Delaney (Winning Ace #2) out July 30th

Where her first book was all about her fab heroine Tally, Ms Delaney’s second book focuses on her hero Cash Gallagher.

Oh and what a hero, our Ms Delaney knows her tennis!  Take Murray’s surly professionalism, Federer’s balletic grace, Rafa’s gorgeous sexuality and Djokovic’s gritty darkness and you have one Cash Gallagher.  I held back in the first book, feeling the love for Tally far more.  Not this time. I’m a goner for Cash.

Ms Delaney’s second book is effortlessly enjoyable, perfect for the beach or your back garden!

Warning this is a trilogy and needs to be read in order.  Personally, I hate that it’s a trilogy.  Waiting to know who Gracie was and why she and Cash were involved nearly killed me.  Hands up though, it was worth the wait.  I adored how the story unfolded, it was sensitive, surprising and believable.  I felt for Cash big time.

As its book two of three, clearly not all is resolved.  I thought the ending was really thoughtful and clever.  It would have been way too easy to replicate the success of the first book’s cliff hanger ending.  This way its much harder to see a resolution (it’s a romance I’m hoping there is one???).  And I seriously need to know like NOW!  But sadly I’m made to wait.

To fill the time, I think I’m going to start a campaign for Rupe’s book!  He is charming and ridiculous, definitely Cash’s opposite.  Who could possibly be matched with him?

Hearts, brains and blood

Blood Laws by Lexi C Foss (Immortal Curse #1)

Lexi C Foss has created a world that’s imaginative, original and believable. If you’re a PNR fan you’ll want this for breakfast.  And then maybe you can savour Isaac for dessert.  Not only is he yummy, but there’s something about his dark intellect that will have smart girls craving seconds!

The pace is fast but not so furious that you miss the subtlety that Ms Foss has woven in.  At each tantalising reveal you’ll need to remember to breathe!  Good luck with that because Osiris will steal your breath and have your heart banging and your toes curling.

Obviously Isaac is the star but the wider cast are wonderful.  Stas is a great heroine, they are so beautifully suited.  I now know who book two will be about, and whilst it’s a great choice, there were a number of contenders.  This series should get better and better.

The story focuses on the aftermath of a series of laws between two warring civilisations, based in modern day Manhattan. Billionaires, gleaming buildings, a blood court and a para military force with their own agenda.  Just wow!

The romance was heart felt, the drama Machiavellian and the characters intricate. What more could you want?  I think I already mentioned Isaac?

One of the best first vampire books ever.  I dare you to put it down.
