Number of pages: 251
Keely McKay knows Jack—and Jack Donohue is a certified pain in her Wranglers. The lone girl in the prolific McKay family, Keely needs another man giving her orders like she needs a hole in her boot. What she does need is a restoration specialist so she can open her physical therapy clinic—and prove she’s left her wild-child days behind. That means dealing with buttoned-down, uptight Jack.
Jack is this close to securing a career make-or-break project, until he learns his lack of marital status puts him out of contention. When the notoriously hot-tempered and hot-bodied Keely begs him for help, he proposes a crazy idea. He’ll oversee her project—if she acts the part of his loving fiancée.
Their sizzling lust makes it all too easy to go from butting heads to knocking boots—but outside the bedroom they’re as mismatched as ever. The McKays remind Jack of the humble upbringing he left behind, and cowgirl Keely feels she doesn’t measure up to Jack’s big-city lifestyle.
When the dust settles, Jack and Keely must face the fact they’re not fooling anyone but themselves—or they’ll risk losing the real deal.
This is Keely book and she’s being waiting for her happy ending since book one and it was not a surprise for me when jack finally managed to get her.
This was such a good book and Jack is really good in the bedroom, or the floor. He’s definitely has charm when you through the exterior of polished greatness. Keely is a great girl and has no problem in creating a mess, she has five older brothers and had to stand up for herself.
The relationship between these two is growing since the last three books, but I never realized jack was so good, it was kinda boring to me compared to the cowboys, but he’s a good person and deserved to have a nice ad normal life after what his ex-fiancé did to him.
It was fun how these two decided to pretend an engagement to help in Jack’s job and how everything ended so good. Sparks fly and these two are great in getting back together.

My first bloggiesta and I’m already late to the party. Read several mini-challenges and had some ideas for what to do, but will start slow and crawl my way out.
I have 11 books to review (12 if you count the one I’m supposed to finish today) and will schedule at least four to October and November.
Update my reviews on GoodReads.
Update my wishlist page.
Work on the Dreaming on It, Top Off Tuesday and Waiting on Wednesday posts until the end of the year.
Title: Dark Frost
Author: Jennifer Estep
Series: Mythos Academy
Genre: Young Adult
Release date: May 29th 2012
Number of pages: 336
I’ve seen so many freaky things since I started attending Mythos Academy last fall. I know I’m supposed to be a fearless warrior, but most of the time, I feel like I’m just waiting for the next Bad, Bad Thing to happen. Like someone trying to kill me—again.
Everyone at Mythos Academy knows me as Gwen Frost, the Gypsy girl who uses her psychometry magic to find lost objects—and who just may be dating Logan Quinn, the hottest guy in school. But I’m also the girl the Reapers of Chaos want dead in the worst way. The Reapers are the baddest of the bad, the people who murdered my mom. So why do they have it in for me?
It turns out my mom hid a powerful artifact called the Helheim Dagger before she died. Now, the Reapers will do anything to get it back. They think I know where the dagger is hidden, but this is one thing I can’t use my magic to find. All I do know is that the Reapers are coming for me—and I’m in for the fight of my life.
Things are getting more dangerous than ever in Mythos Academy and now Gwen must find an artifact her mother hide. An again it’s the only way to save the humanity from Loki, problem is she has no idea where it is and Loki’s champion is also looking and it’s probably inside the school.
Gwen’s life is not easy and Logan is almost her boyfriend, because now she has reasons to stay away from him. Reapers are popping up from everywhere and nobody is save, but Gwen is improving in her abilities and also learning how to fight better. Double yay.
But the book is all about action and death happens, but this one was really good for the series. It explained a lot about Gwen’s family and also helped understand a bit more of this war.
Can’t wait for the next because now the bad guy is out of the cage and Gwen is trying to save herself.

Title: Because I Am Yours
Author: Beth Kery
Series: Because You Are Mine
Publisher: Berkley InterMix
Release date: September 18th 2012
Number of pages: 53
From the moment Ian and Francesca first met, the attraction was mutual—a purely, exquisitely physical charge that ignited between them. It couldn’t be ignored—only indulged, evolving into a bond of pleasurable subjugation. But Francesca’s open sensuality left her wanting more. Getting it from a man as mysterious and resolute as Ian was a challenge she never anticipated.
Francesca knows there’s only one way for them to move forward–to follow Ian to London and show him that she doesn’t want him to suffer alone. But when Ian’s past and inner torment is revealed, he experiences a nearly unbearable volcanic mix of emotions for the woman who has dared to love him, despite his inner demons. After exposing Francesca to the limits of his anguish, he wonders if he’s lost her forever. Can he bend enough to compromise to true intimacy…and something called love?
It’s over and these were the last two chapters. I didn’t see much difference in Ian from the beginning, but I liked how Francesca managed to change and become more sure of herself during the book. The relationship was good for her and made her understand more about her needs and how to get what she desires.
Ian was the same. Still hiding in the glass and pushing people from his life. Couldn’t trust Francesca, even when she said the four letters word with the big L. He’s a great Dom, but I don’t think he’s good yet for a long term relationship, needs to learn and trust people.
