To review

Montana is a adrenaline junkie, but after a accident she had to give it up. Even her kid. Yes that was pretty heartbreaking. Her brain took a hit that sometimes she just has these blackouts, so she spent 10 years with her parents instead.

Now she is back, starting a new career, getting to know her kid. It also seems I missed some drama in the previous book when she came back to her ex and his new girlfriend. Maybe for the best . I still do not understand the whole giving up for 10 years, I mean couldn't she have lived in the same city and had visits with her daughter that were supervised?

Anyway she is back, building a life. Trying to connect with her hunky neighbor Eddie.

But then there is some drama, and Eddie is hurt. I liked Eddie, he was such a good man, and now his life is totally different because of an act of violence.


Sweet story.

Good narrator. I liked her voices and she set a nice pace and tone to the story 

Montana Banks has returned to Wild River, Alaska, for a fresh start. Adventure has always been in her blood, but while an injury leaves her unable to participate in her favorite extreme sports, Montana settles for teaching base-jumping classes at her friend's tour company. Settling in has been almost too easy: a great job, her family's acceptance and her own apartment--right next door to straitlaced police officer Eddie Sanders.

Eddie has always had feelings for Montana, and now that he's leaving for a new job in Anchorage he wonders if he should've taken a chance with her sooner. Then a moment of violence the night of his going-away party leaves him badly wounded. Seeing Eddie's job opportunity lost and self-confidence following close behind, Montana is determined to show him all the reasons he has to pick himself up again.

Carole's Monday : The Highlander's angel

The Highlander's Angel (The Highland Angels, #1)

Author: Caroline Lee
Title: The Highlander's Angel
(The Highland Angels #1)
Genre: Historical Romance
Format: ebook
Pages: 184
Published: January 5th 2020

Where I Got It: My shelf (Amazon)

Summary: When Robert the Bruce's queen formed the Angels, an elite group of spies masquerading as her ladies in waiting, she probably didn't imagine they'd be called on to save her life. But that's what happens when Queen Elizabeth is entertaining the Ross delegation.

Luckily, her lady Courtney is deadly with a bow and recognizes the assassin. Court's history with the band of thieves and murderers who raised her means she has a very different skill set than most women in the queen's retinue, and she's not afraid to employ it. But she is used to working alone, and the idea of being saddled with an unwanted partner—particularly when that man is gorgeous, dangerous, and a suspect—is galling.

Malcolm Ross, the queen's longtime bodyguard, can't believe one of his kinsmen could be involved in this dastardly plot. He'll do everything in his power to prove his clan is innocent of treason, even if it means partnering with a testy and deadly thief-turned-spy... One who holds his heart in her hands after that single night they spent together years ago.

Malcolm must choose between his loyalty to his laird and his loyalty to his heart, as Court's "family" proves she doesn't even understand what loyalty is. When metal hits meat, can this unlikely duo learn to trust each other, or will the plot to bring down the Scottish monarchy succeed?

A while back I had read the little prequel short story and it had made me curious about the other Angels. This was really cheap on Amazon so I went ahead and grabbed it

The story follows lady Courtney who is deadly with the bow and had been raised with a band of thieves and murderers. With her different skills, it is without a doubt a great idea to have her be an Angel for the Queen. After an attempt on the Queen's life, Courtney has a mission to follow a lead. However, she will not be going alone. She is saddled with Malcolm Ross who had been a longtime bodyguard and can't believe one of his kinsmen might be involved in the plot. He will have to make a choice between loyalty to his laird and his loyalty to his heart. 

Courtney kicks ass. I wish we could've seen more of her skills in other battles. She's a fun character and I wish we had more time with her. I liked Ross too. Especially with how much he loves his dang dog. So cute! Ross and Court were very cute together and they fit each other well. Ross has his heart on his sleeve and Court is a little cold and reserved. 

Oo that baddie certainly was a baddie. However, I feel like there is more going on. I do not think that baddie is the main one we will be seeing. We'll have to read book 2 I guess to see what happens next ;) ! 

Honestly....I wish we had had more time with Court and Ross. I feel like there was more we could've seen. They had hook-ups in the past and obviously had feelings for each other for years, but I felt like I was missing something with these two. We needed more time to see them fall in love. 

All-in-all this was a fun story with a fun cast of characters. I am curious to read more about the other angels. Hopefully, we get more time with them. Maybe we'll see more of Ross and Court in those. I'll give this 3 stars.

To review

Ben's ex was a piece of work,ugh, now I have to start my review thinking of her. What a privileged brat.

Nic is smart, successful and all about her career. I get her drive, but she sure had issues with letting a man get close.

Ben wants a real family, and hey I get that too.His parents was never around, like never. He wants a family that is close and around. And no doctors cos they are too busy. I really liked Ben, he just wanted that he never had growing up.

Fake relationship. Oh we know those always get people to hook up. Insert some ex drama, and tension when two people who want different things want each other.

I enjoyed it. Though why is is called girls trip?

Good narrator, some of the voices weren't always that distinct, but it did not matter. It was easy following along. She made it light and breezy

Driven and focused, Dr. Nicole Allen is an accomplished surgeon. With a tough past, Nic’s gone above and beyond everyone’s expectations. But when she disciplines an intern—a powerful donor’s son—a prestigious fellowship she’s awaiting is placed in jeopardy. 

Coming from a successful family who runs a medical business empire, Benjamin Reed Van Mont is the black sheep, having chosen to start his own business instead. Though he’s not ready to settle down, he knows when the time comes it definitely won’t be with a workaholic doctor like his friend Nic—even if she’s had him re-examining his edict…more than once. 

When Ben’s status-climbing ex-girlfriend finds her way back into his orbit, Nic proposes a swap of services. She’ll spend the week with Ben on Martha’s Vineyard, pretending to be his girlfriend—but only if he’ll have his family intervene on her behalf so she won’t lose her fellowship. How hard can the charade be? 

But as they’re about to discover, they’ve sorely underestimated their true feelings for each other…
