Short review coming up!

Book 12, still going strong! (though there were a bump in the road a few books back).

I mean what can I say?

Ugh, the ex wife, the mentioning of her made me scream at Mercy to just leave them all!

An evil smoke monster on the loose.

Wicked werewolves.

Aww Bran. I will always love Bran. Even after the weirdness.

I really enjoy Lorelai's narration. I know I jumped in at 11, but she is perfect and makes the book.

It is book 12! It was great, sure I do want an ending soon, I want closure and happiness. But I still love the books so much too.

I am Mercedes Athena Thompson Hauptman.
My only “superpowers” are that I turn into a 35 pound coyote and fix Volkswagens. But I have friends in odd places and a pack of werewolves at my back. It looks like I'm going to need them. 

Centuries ago, the fae dwelt in Underhill - until she locked her doors against them. They left behind their great castles and troves of magical artifacts. They abandoned their prisoners and their pets. Without the fae to mind them, those creatures who remained behind roamed freely through Underhill wreaking havoc. Only the deadliest survived. 

Now one of those prisoners has escaped. It can look like anyone, any creature it chooses. But if it bites you, it controls you. It lives for chaos and destruction. It can make you do anything - even kill the person you love the most. Now it is here, in the Tri-Cities. In my territory. 

It won't, can't, remain. 

Not if I have anything to say about it.

Audio: A cowboy like you by Donna Grant

Narrated by: Rebecca Estrella

Length: 7 hrs and 44 mins
Unabridged Audiobook
Release date: 03-17-20
Language: English
Publisher: Tantor Audio
Romantic suspense
For review

I really felt for Skylar, her ex wasn't just an asshat, he was a nasty piece of humanshite.

Danny and Skylar knew each other in HS, and he fancied her, but nothing ever happened. They meet again as she is running from her ex. Ok so yes not the best time to meet again, and sure I do wish more time had gone by. But then again, if you fall in love you fall in love. And they do try to take it slowly, and not you know jump each other at once.

The ex was a abusive, possessive scumbag. I hated him so much. And I want to say more, but spoilers, but oh it made me mad.

Danny was a good guy (I had to ask Carole about the whole cop vs sheriff thing and I still do not get it). But yes he is the sheriff.

Skylar was strong and determined. They were perfect for each other.

But before that there is a lot of ex drama, and more drama. And danger.

I liked it. There are lot of background people from previous books, but it still work great as it is.

Narrator
I liked Estrella, I have listened to her before (cowboy romances), and she is always great 

Danny Oldman, the handsome Lone Star sheriff, is still single. He tells himself, and anyone who asks, that he is married to his job - and what matters most is keeping the people of his beloved Texas hometown safe. The truth? Danny still hasn't gotten over his high school crush. She moved away after graduation and took Danny's heart with her.

Skylar Long never thought she would have to flee Houston and return home - where it all began for her. But that's what happened after the man of her dreams turned out to be an actual nightmare. Now, Skylar is desperate to escape her obsessive boyfriend. Nothing shocks her more than seeing Danny again and realizing that their long-ago attraction is more powerful than ever. But can she and Danny find a way to fight against Skylar's wealthy, powerful ex who is dead set on tearing them apart?

March 31st: - Are you an impulsive book buyer? (Courtesy of Roberta@ Offbeat YA)

Absolutely not!

I sit on my wishlist, to buy list for years. I consider, re-consider, I take one away, I put it back. I read reviews. It gets put lower on the list as books that needs to be bought first gets precedent. I recently got a book I have wanted since 2012!

I am a slow thoughtful buyer, though sometimes I do make quick decisions, but I never impulse buy
