Review – The Hero and the Hacktivist

The Hero and the Hacktivist (Standalone in Pippa’s world)
by Pippa Grant (Author)

Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥🔥

Eloise and Rhett are one of my favorite funny book couples. Right from the start I was laughing out loud, but I was also drawn into the passion and dedication that they both have everything they put an effort into. I had so many favorite lines in this book, so many LOL moments, just so many of everything it’s easy to say I loved The Hero and the Hacktivist.

Rhett Elliott, an American hero SEAL, also known as Parker’s brother and now Knox’s brother-in-law (which up until now their story has been my favorite Pippa Grant book-check it out if you haven’t-it’s hilarious and oh so good!). Like a good brother, Rhett is attending their wedding when he is propositioned by Eloise, Parker’s bandmate and current bridesmaid. The moment is hilarious and I found myself snort-laughing through the entire “seduction”. I fell in instalove with both characters right out of the socially awkward-passion filled gate. The story barely begins, we have an instant connection, but Eloise never goes back for more after she’s had a taste and no matter what she does to shake Rhett for most of the book, for very good reason, he sticks around. She fights justice in her own way, but it unfortunately it puts a target on her back for some very bad people to come after her. It’s a good thing a certain SEAL can’t seem to get over her quirkiness, nor get over his huge…ego or hero complex when it comes to helping people even when they don’t want it.

Eloise and Rhett appear like opposites when you see them together, but they are more alike than anyone would have ever realized as they spend more time together. Can two heroes who fight for justice work together when they fight in very different ways?

Blog Tour – One Hundred Excuses

Kelly Collins’s popular Aspen Cove series continues with ONE HUNDRED EXCUSES! If you love small-towns and your romance sweet with just a touch of heat, then you don’t want to miss this one. Be sure to grab your copy today!


Author Kelly Collins takes you back to Aspen Cove where life is sweet, the tea is sweeter, and love is the sweetest of all.

Marina Caswell didn’t expect to find herself broken and alone with a four-year-old daughter. She could offer a hundred excuses as to why her marriage failed, but the truth was she’d chosen poorly. After a painful marriage and an ugly divorce, she flees with her little girl to Aspen Cove looking for a place to heal their wounded spirits and mend their shattered hearts. What she doesn’t expect to find in the quirky little town is love in the form of Sheriff Cooper, a man who insists that everything including trust, love, and respect is grown like a garden. All it needs is a bit of attention and care, something Marina has never experienced.

As the local sheriff, Aiden Cooper can recognize trouble at a glance. It usually looks pretty, smells nice, and wears heels. After his last relationship failure, Aiden doesn’t expect love to bloom when single mom Marina Caswell plants roots next door, but when he sees the sadness in her eyes, he makes it his mission to sow seeds of hope and happiness in her heart.

The tiniest kernel of love can grow when the conditions are right, but a weed from Marina’s past threatens to choke out what they’ve cultivated together. Can Aiden and Marina’s love grow and thrive, or will the past seek its revenge, causing their love to wilt and die before it can ever take root?

Connor: Bill who?
Connor: And why am I sending him your way? 😛
Feeling odd having this conversation naked, I grabbed a clean pair of boxers before climbing back into bed. Tomorrow was going to be hell, but right now I was smiling so hard I already knew it was going to be worth it.
And Zoe didn’t disappoint.
Zoe: Ha ha ha.
Zoe: I bet you think you’re funny, don’t you?
Connor: I am funny.
Connor: Bet you smiled.
Zoe: If by smiling you mean rolling my eyes so hard I think I saw my brain,
Zoe: then yeah.
Zoe: I smiled.
Connor: Wait! What?
Connor: You have a brain?
Connor: Huh. Who knew?
Zoe: Asshole!
Connor: Yes sweetheart?
Zoe: Don’t sweetheart me. Connor Adrian McIntyre.
Connor: Oooh, pulling out the big guns. Full name.
Connor: I’m scared.
Connor: Wait! How’d you know my middle name anyway
Zoe: I have my ways
Connor: Stalker much?
Zoe: You wish
Connor: Bloody Ryan has a big mouth
Zoe: Who said it was Ryan?
Connor: Had to be him or Holly. Damn gossip queens
Zoe: Are you always this frustrating?
Connor: If you mean frustrating as in sexy, then sorry to break it to you. pumpkin…
Connor: I’m dead sexy.
Connor: But you already knew that.
Connor: Didn’t you?

I’m just me. A clumsy, introverted, bubble bath loving, chocoholic who would rather read a book than go shopping. And god forbid if you try and make me shoe shop!

I’m one of four kids to school teacher parents. A wife to a football obsessed husband. Mother to a fur-baby who isn’t aware of how big he is. Aunt to the most crazy/adorable little girls. And sister to two very determined sisters and one easy going brother.

I live in Canberra Australia and work too many hours a day at my day job.

I’m a book whore who can easily (and happily) read a book from start to finish in a day and when I do have spare time, you’ll find me in the writing cave.
