Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

This is a collection of steamy, contemporary stories that revolve around love and the song that inspired it. Personally I felt that some songs were more up front with their musically titled theme than others, but maybe it could have also been that I knew some songs better than others. Regardless, like any anthology I was drawn to certain stories more than others, but overall, the anthology holds something for everyone and for the price you can’t go wrong.

MixTape is packed with excellent authors and lots of steamy romance. Here are just a few of my personal favorites:

“Say Yes”-Elle Kennedy

Have you ever attended a wedding hoping for a quick hookup? Well, Emilia was away for a weekend wedding and she was definitely swiping left and right. Her perfect match, a man named Dirk (really Dirk?) Well, he was the perfect walking wet panty dream, which was perfect for her one night stand. The only snag in her perfect plan was when the bride introduces her (the next morning) to the groom, who just so happens to be none-other than Dirk (yeah, she knew that name spelled trouble).

“Say It First” Nikki Sloane

When Anna Douglas made it big in Hollywood, she didn’t really stay connected to people back home. It wasn’t that she was a snob, it was that she wasn’t connected before she made it big, so when a friend request popped up from Jamie Campbell, one of the most popular guys from high school, she couldn’t resist accepting. Months and conversations later they have become each other’s best friend, but could it be more? With hectic schedules and never declaring anything but friendship is it time to move beyond the chat room?

There are several others that were delicious and full of extra steam and I hope you pick up this anthology for yourself so you can read each and every story to discover just how much fun reading MixTape was.

Book Reviews, This and That

2017 The Year in Review

Reflecting back on this past year; on one hand it’s hard to believe the time went by so fast and on the other it feels like it began a lifetime ago.

I made promises to myself as 2017 began, probably as most people do in the form of resolutions, but this was more than a New Years change of habit for me. 2017 was going to be the year that I devoted more of my personal time back to writing and reading.  Yes, I love to read and have always been a reader, aside from the few years I was lucky to read anything except a picture book to my children before bedtime, I always read for my own enjoyment. What I’m talking about was more of a commitment to finding myself once again.

When 2017 rolled onto the calendar almost 12 months ago my youngest was soon heading off to college and I needed to discover who I was again. I was becoming an empty nester and the thought had me salivating at all of the free time I would soon have on my hands, but I needed to make changes in how I was going to handle my free time.  And part of this change was losing myself in the literary world.

I wanted 2017 to be the year that I branched out and discovered new authors, or at least new to me. You see, I’d grown comfortable in reading my favorite authors. I wasn’t taking chances because reading them was like a warm blanket, coming home, and being fed a delicious home cooked meal. I’d reached a point where I wasn’t challenging myself as a reader like I had years ago.

So, even though I know I’ll continue to read my home cooked favorite authors, 2017 brought me a multitude of new authors, along with a bucket full of personal changes I wasn’t expecting.

I won’t go into a lengthy story, but here is a quick summation:

I began the year strong, both in reading and writing. Honestly, I was more put together than I had been in a long time. I was doing great and feeling really good at keeping up with my goals, but then my family had to step in and muddle things up.

In the spring my husband interviewed for a new job, by early summer he received news that he was chosen for that job. Our youngest daughter graduated high school, my husband began his new job and I was left with packing up and selling our home of seventeen years to relocate to a new area without help. Late summer was the beginning of my high-level-stress breakdown.

I had to back off on reading and writing to focus on family. With my children now away at school, I packed up the old house, quit my job of seventeen years, moved into a new house and community, all while playing counselor to my children that were left feeling the pangs of missing their old life. A life that they weren’t home much to enjoy anymore, but where they spent their entire childhood growing up. As much as I’d wanted to assure them that as they matured and made new friends the ache would pass, but I too was missing the people I grew fond of over the last seventeen years.

Fall was definitely a time of change. As much as I tried to get back on track with my lofty beginning of the year goals, it just didn’t happen. Here it is December and I can honestly say I’m just feeling that settled in feeling. Although I still have moments when I ask, “where is that…?” You can fill in the blank with whatever you want. Everything from glue to earrings to underwear. I seriously didn’t know where mine was the first few days I was here. That was unsettling to say the least. Thank god I’d packed some in my overnight bag. Geez.

Anyway, I’m just getting back in the groove and beginning to settle in to my new life, so 2018 better watch out because I want to begin a new future in my new home with a positive lookout.

Now that I’ve caught you up on what has been happening in Kay’s world, let me recap books that you shouldn’t have missed in 2017 and need to read if you haven’t done so already.

*Every category is totally and completely picked by Kay Daniels Romance and all opinions are my own*

1. The Best Romance Novel of 2017:
Unloved, a love story by Katy Regnery

Hands down Unloved, a love story was the best book I can remember reading in a very long time. I’m not discrediting any of the other books I love because I love a lot of books, but this book had a premise like nothing I’ve ever heard of before. It kept me on edge wondering how the two characters would even be able to work it out so it would be a love story. I know it’s in the title, so I wasn’t going to doubt Katy Regnery and her blatant use of calling the book a love story, but as page after page went by, I was beginning to wonder how in the world she was going to pull it off.  All I can say is she is a master storyteller and I love her for writing this book.

Here is the synopsis:

Cassidy Porter is the son of a serial killer. His father is convicted when Cassidy is just eight years old. His entire world is turned upside down at the young age of just eight. Moving from his hometown where he and his mother are now shunned, his entire life Cassidy is told, no. It basically becomes his mantra that he should never pass on his DNA, spread his evil seed, nor infect anyone in case he too becomes like his father and becomes a killer.

“I nod at him, vowing that the blood in my veins will never, ever infect another life. I will live quiet. And Paul Isaac Porter’s terrifying genes will die with me.”

As hurtful as it is that Cassidy wants to believe he is his own person and would never hurt anyone, he agrees to never pass on his genetic coding so he lives in solitude, never having contact with anyone. Living alone, unloved, until one day when he saves the life of Brynn Cadogan.

Brynn had been living a half-life for a little over two years. Her fiancé, Jem, had been killed in a mass shooting. How was she supposed to live the rest of her life when her love’s had been cut short? It didn’t seem fair. It wasn’t right. Jem, had loved the mountains, practically lived in them. It only seemed fitting that she bury a part of him in his beloved mountains. Against the advice of her family, and Jem’s she headed off for a climb that she wasn’t exactly fit for, but she was determined. That was until bad weather hit and she was forced to take shelter in a leanto with a man who gave her the creeps.

The last thing Brynn remembered was climbing the mountain, a horrible rain storm, and a creepy guy named Wayne, so how did she end up in a warm cabin looking at a man with one blue eye and one green? Why does she feel more comfortable in the presence of this stranger, whom she doesn’t even know, laying in a strange bed, in nothing more than a t-shirt and underwear, than she did stumbling upon Wayne walking up a mountain fully dressed? Something tells her to trust Cassidy and that is when the healing really begins.

Cassidy saved Brynn from what could have been a horrible tragedy up on that mountain. He constantly struggles with the man his family made him believe he was inside vs. the man he really is, the one Brynn sees he is, throughout their journey together. As much as Cassidy saved Brynn, she just as much wants to save Cassidy in return.

“Love. A word that keeps entering my mind lately. And I know it’s not possible, because of promises I intend to keep, but I can’t help the way I feel.”

Their story raised so many thoughts and questions in my own mind. Are you the product of your parents, whether it’s genetic or environmental? Do you follow the same path or are the proverbial black sheep always bad? For instance, if everyone is a doctor in your family do you take a different path and become an author? If your father is a serial killer are you genetically wired to follow the same path? Would you still love someone knowing who their parent was? Do you love the person and not their past?

I loved this story, I really cannot begin to express how much I loved this story, except to tell you that you need to read it. It was the best read of 2017.

Unloved

2. The Best NA Book I read in 2017:
Fake Fiancée by Ilsa Madden-Mills

Coming of age is never easy. Not only is it a time where you are trying to figure out this thing called adulthood, but it is also a time where you easily make a lot of mistakes and guidance is typically offered by your elders, but let’s go back to the beginning of this sentence…yeah the figuring out adulthood part. Most young adults would rather figure it out on their own (stubborn, I could place a few other choice words here, but you probably know them already) This has led to a boom in the NA category since this age in particular makes for an angsty, heartfelt, emotionally driven romance piled with all the age factors like school, parents, friends, society, you name it NA can deliver it.

I really had to think about what my favorite NA book was for 2017. I read a lot of really great ones this year, but since it came down to only picking one, I chose; 

Here is the synopsis:

Max Kent is the star quarterback heading into his senior year of college. There is buzz talk of him receiving the Heisman trophy which would definitely mean the NFL in his future. If Max played his cards right and didn’t screw up he’d have a real shot towards everything he’s worked for. And when Max wanted something there wasn’t much he wouldn’t do to reach his goal. His last long term girlfriend almost screwed up his winning season last year, so when Sunny shows up on his doorstep the first day of class he sees a great opportunity and runs with it.

Sunny Blaine was a long way from where she’d run from several years ago. With little to her name she was attending college, taking care of her grandmother, working to pay for school and frankly she didn’t have time for stupid, inconsiderate jocks. Miffed when a football groupie totaled her car, she had no qualms about letting the football jock who was basically an accessory to the crime (at least in Sunny’s book) hear about it. What she wasn’t prepared for was the instant connection that came after and the ridiculous proposal that shortly ensued.

Max and Sunny find a kindred spirit in each other, which quickly blossoms into friendship. When their friendship begins to burn into something more than they can handle will the inferno burn them and kill what they’ve built while they sit hopelessly on the sidelines watching it blaze out of control? Are they strong enough to make it through anything together?

“Sometimes there really is a bigger plan.
Sometimes there really is that one person.
Sometimes true love finds you no matter what.”

Max and Sunny were such a delight to read. I really didn’t want the story to end. For me, if I had a perfect description for what New Adult romance is, Fake Fiancée would be it. It captures the essence of youth, the budding relationship and choices young lovers make creating the pitfalls that happen when we doubt ourselves.

I can tell you, pick up this enjoyable read now, you won’t regret it.       Fake Fiancée

3. My new favorite-discovered-author-to-keep-watching (or reading) in 2018:
Veronica Larsen

Sometimes reading a new author is comparable to trying new food. The outside packaging makes the food look yummy, mouth-watering and so delicious that you just have to buy it and take it home that minute to make it, but once you do it tastes like crap. Wellllllllll, sometimes reading a new author is sort of like that. The pretty cover lures you in, the hot guy on the front is yummy, delicious, and you want to take him home and well you know…but once you crack open the book the content is just not yummy and delicious.

My goal this year was to read new authors. I knew I was potentially opening myself up to some unpalatable reading. However, on the flip side, I was also opening myself up to read a gourmet meal. I knew the chances and I was pleasantly surprised in sitting down to read multiple gourmet books. It made choosing just one author difficult, but after I narrowed it down I finally chose one and here is my favorite among the top chefs I read.

Here is why I chose Veronica Larsen as my one to keep reading into 2018:

Veronica has a beautiful flow of writing. She is able to pull you into the characters world so thoroughly I felt like I was living in the character’s apartment. I was drawn into their lives and it was effortless, riding the same emotional roller coaster as the characters were.

This is not the first time Veronica Larsen has done this to me. She makes me question the characters choices right along with them. Unlike other stories where I always root for the hero and heroine to fall in love, Veronica tells the story in a way that when the character is questioning if things should work out, I question the very same thing.
Maybe things would be better if they walked away.
Maybe things would be better if they just stayed friends.
Maybe, maybe, maybe…
I never do this, because I love, love, LOVE HEA’S. So this has to tell you that Veronica is really good at bringing you into the characters lives, their minds, their feelings and you empathize with them like you may not not do in other stories you read.

Veronica Larsen has written multiple books, the two above are just the two I’ve read in 2017. I plan to keep reading her angsty love stories and I hope you do too,

4. The Sexiest Cover of 2017:
Honey Bee by Heather Shere

Who says you can’t judge a book by its cover? Well…that unfortunately is true when it comes to its contents, but when it comes to the category of just gawking at sexy, delicious eye candy then YES!! you can totally judge a book by its cover.

This may be hard to believe, but this was the hardest category to decide on. There were a lot of yummy, yummy, ooh so tantalizing hot, hot covers released this past year. So thank you to all the models that rock those photo shoots. Thank you for all of the hard workouts you endured to create the sexy abs and those mouth watering notches on the sides of your abdomen that point down to what’s hidden underneath your beltline. Whooooo is it hot in here or is it all the covers I’ve just shuffled through in order to pick out the best one? The things I do in the name of romance.

So without further ado….

The beard scruff, the abs, the arms, and even the tush. Mmm, mmm, mmm Honey Bee brought it all. Thank you Heather Shere for the sexiest cover of 2017!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

As 2017 ends and I move forward into a new year. I close out my records and open a clean slate. It’s been fun reflecting over what I read this past year and for many of the books I feel like the comic below…

However, I’m looking forward to the many new adventures I get to take and the new friends I will meet as I open the covers of new books (okay I really open the app on my electronic device, but you understand the meaning).

2018 book hangover here I come…

To everyone have a wonderful holiday season and thank you for tuning in.

Keep reading, keep writing and good fortune.

I Am Enamored With Emanor

Enamor; Hearts of Stone #1 (Series)
by Veronica Larsen (Author)

This review is from: December 8, 2017 By Kay Daniels (Kindle Edition-Goodreads)
Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥🔥

I am wading in the afterglow of Enamor today. Completely living in the book coma world of Giles and Julia that I don’t want to leave.

Veronica Larsen has a beautiful flow of writing. She is able to pull you into the characters world so thoroughly I felt like I was living in their apartment. I was drawn into their lives and it was effortless, riding the same emotional roller coaster Giles and Julia were.

I have to say this isn’t the first time Veronica Larsen has done this to me. She makes me question the characters choices right along with them. Unlike other stories where I always root for the hero and heroine to fall in love, Veronica tells the story in a way that when the character is questioning if things should work out, I question the very same thing.
Maybe things would be better if they walked away.
Maybe things would be better if they just stayed friends.
Maybe, maybe, maybe…
I never do this, because I love, love, LOVE HEA’S. So this has to tell you that Veronica is really good at bringing you into the characters lives, their minds, their feelings and you empathize with them like you may not have with in other stories you have read.

As Enamor begins Julia is just moving into a new apartment. She doesn’t know Ava well, but well enough to know she’s a good student and works multiple jobs, meaning she won’t be around often. She also knows that there will be a third person living in the apartment, Julia doesn’t know them, but if it is anyone like Ava, Julia just hopes they like her and stay out of her personal space.

Unfortunately, what Julia doesn’t count on is Ava living with her cousin, Giles. A womanizing, annoying, pig-headed, sex-on-a-stick, frustrating man.

Giles and Julia instantly have a love-hate relationship that is funny to read. A prank war begins as they try to one-up one another that begins a road to friendship that neither one sees coming.

Giles Caldwall isn’t quite the man he appears to be. He displays himself as a womanizing perv, but deep down he actually is a decent guy just wrapped up in pervy clothing…okay he is still a perv all the time because is a guy, but Julia is the first girl who looks past his exterior.

As their friendship grows, so do their feelings. Feelings that neither Julia or Giles understand. They both enjoy their friendship, something neither one has had before. They both have been scarred at such a deep level that opening up like they do to one another is something they now consider precious.

They are cautious and take time considering; would having something more, a relationship, tarnish what they already have? Would staying friends be enough? Can they just walk away from one another and let the other find happiness in someone else’s arms?

You will ride this roller coaster right along with Giles and Julia and question every decision they make because you are right in the apartment with them.

• SYNOPSIS •
Eight years ago, Cole Van Buren left me at the altar without a single explanation. My heart’s been at a standstill ever since, the anger keeping me from moving on. Keeping me from seeing the man who’s been right in front of me all this time…
Andrew’s been the friend I needed, the one constant through the hardest times of my life. But one night, the lines blur and we’re tipped into something more. Just when I’m ready to explore what we could be…
My ex comes back.
Cole says he didn’t come to get me back, but I should know better. The answers he dangles overhead are the ones I need to finally let go.
Except there’s no such thing as closure, only a past that wants to pull you backward.

On the Edge Over This Love Triangle

The Edge of Us (Standalone)
by Veronica Larsen (Author)

This review is from: July 17, 2017 By Kay Daniels (Kindle Edition-Goodreads)
Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Heat Level:🔥🔥

Wow!!

The love triangle is The Edge of Us kept my emotions of the edge through the entire story. The last time I recall being this torn up over a love triangle was when I was Switzerland and sided “Team Jakeward”. Yeah, I was totally a Twi-Mom and loved every moment of reading those books with my girls when they were little.

The Edge of Us opens with Mila Zelenko, a self-made business woman, winning the award for Entrepreneur of the Year. As she’s making her speech you get a little insight  of what makes up Mila, you see a tiny glimpse into her past, and you feel whatever is about to happen in her future by the emotions bubbling under her surface.

Oh yes, the first chapter is that jam-packed and yet you have absolutely no idea what is going on, but you HAVE to find out what is going on because the first chapter will ensnare you.

Rewind several weeks and the story takes you back. What? I have to find out what is going on with Mila now!

Veronica Larsen is brilliant in setting the scenes for what happens next. She may be my new favorite author for writing stories involving love triangles. I hate and love her at the same time because these stories get me all angsty and I flip sides numerous times, but that’s why I love her so, so much.

Back to the story…

“Sometimes the past can resurface, wrap around us and consume us in all the ways it did before.”

Andrew Pearson and Mila Zelenko have been friends for eight years. They have been friends for the same amount of time Cole Van Buren has been out of her life. She met Andrew on her wedding night. The night Cole didn’t show up and left Mila standing alone at the altar. Is it a coincidence that these two men intersect and have such a huge impact on her life at the most crucial times?

GAH!

Andrew has been waiting eight years for Mila to heal. Eight years for the hurt and anger to dissipate. Eight years for the timing to be right. He may not have consciously known he’d been waiting for Mila to open up, but when the opportunity presented itself he didn’t hold back. Now that he’s had a taste of Mila he wants her and he’s not giving up until she’s his everyday.

Mila has been relying on Andrew for eight years. His friendship has meant more to her than she can voice. When things move into more than friendship she is shocked by the possibility that has been lingering in front of her all these years. How could she have missed all the signs that point to her best friend being more than a friend? When Cole comes back into town trying his best to explain what happened eight years ago, Mila’s hurt bubbles to the surface and she isn’t certain that she wants an explanation. Her hate has been a blanket that kept her sheltered. If she lets it go of it what will keep her safe from letting someone in?

Will it be Andrew or will it be Cole? You have to read this book to find out what happens and feel all the angsty feelings I felt while reading this amazing story.
