ARC Review: The Final Score by Jaci Burton

Series:     Play-by-Play #13
Pub. Date:Sept. 12, 2017
Length:352 pages

In the thirteenth installment of Jaci Burton's Play-by-Play series, we see the youngest Cassidy paired up with the son of Mick Riley (The Perfect Play) to give us the start of a new athletic dynasty (and room to expand the series maybe?).

Mia Cassidy has just graduated college and has undertaken an ambitious and risky venture to open her own sports management firm in San Francisco, where here brother and best friend play a little pro football for the San Francisco Sabers. Luckily Mia's family athletic affiliations and sports knowledge have prepared her for the business and dealing with athletes. I liked Mia's ambition and courage to take on such a venture at her age. But my favorite aspect of Mia's character was that she is a planner girl y'all! I totally loved that and got quite a few chuckles about her lists, planner addiction, and the hero teasing her about planner stickers.

Audiobook Review: Secrets in Death by J.D. Robb

Series:     In Death #45
Pub. Date:Sept. 4, 2017
Publisher:Brilliance Audio
Length:13 hrs 2 min

Wow, this release snuck up on me and I almost missed it! Luckily I caught it in passing and Eve and Roarke were able to keep me company as I continued to pack for the big move this week. It's amazing that this series is still going so strong at the 45th installment, but I really hope I'm still saying that for a long time to come. I don't ever want to give up these characters. I only wish I could live in their world!

ARC Review: The Time In Between by Kristen Ashley

Series:     Magdalene #3
Pub. Date:Aug. 29, 2017
Length:563 pages

Man, The Time in Between was so good that I want to immediately read it again. This is the third installment of Magdalene series, that takes place in picturesque small-town Maine. If this book doesn't make you want to live in your very own lighthouse, well, you just don't believe in magic at all!  I SOOOO want a lighthouse!  But I'm moving to Arizona in 6 weeks (land of Kristen Ashley!), so I wonder how weird they would find me if I tried to buy a slice of desert and build me a lighthouse on it? I can just imagine that majestic tower and revolving light in the midst of all the saguaro cacti. (I've lost my mind, I know.)
