Bestselling Author, J.S. Scott.

The Billionaire's Obsession~Simon


Down on her luck, nursing student and full-time waitress Kara Foster gets a massive blow to her already desperate financial situation that will surely find her living on the streets. Needing nothing less than a miracle to save her, Kara gets rescue from an unknown, unlikely and overwhelming source. Billionaire Simon Hudson makes her an offer that is impossible to refuse, but terrifying to accept from a man that she's never met. Will the handsome, alpha billionaire really be a solution to her problems, or will he end up being a major complication and a danger to her emotional sanity?

Reclusive billionaire Simon Hudson would rather be behind a computer creating computer games than rubbing elbows with the elite and he knows exactly what he wants...until he meets Kara Foster. Something about Kara touches Simon in ways he's never experienced and definitely doesn't like. For over a year, Simon watches over Kara, but stubbornly refuses to admit his desire to possess her, not even to himself. But when she ends up in a situation that could very well be her destruction, Simon steps up to help her, not realizing that in saving Kara, he might very well be salvaging his own soul.

Review: Twisted: The Girl Who Uncovered Rumpelstiltskin's Name

Twisted: The Girl Who Uncovered Rumpelstiltskin's Name Twisted: The Girl Who Uncovered Rumpelstiltskin's Name by Bonnie M. Hennessy
My rating: 5 of 5 stars


An old tale tells the story of how a little man named Rumpelstiltskin spun straw into gold and tricked a desperate girl into trading away her baby. But that’s not exactly how it happened. 

The real story began with a drunken father who kept throwing money away on alcohol and women, while his daughter, Aoife, ran the family farm on her own. When he gambled away everything they owned to the Duke, it was up to her to spin straw into gold to win it all back. 

With her wits and the help of a magical guardian, she outsmarted the Duke and saved the day. 

Well almost… 

Her guardian suddenly turned on Aoife and sent her on a quest to find his name, the clues to which were hidden deep in the woods, a moldy dungeon, and a dead woman’s chamber. 

Her feelings for one of the men who tricked her from the start threaten to complicate everything. Not the tale of a damsel in distress, this is the story of a tenacious, young woman who solved a mystery so great that not even the enchanted man who spun straw into gold could figure it out. 

Not until Aoife came along. 

My Thoughts:

Cover/Title: The title is what ultimately drew me in. I love fairytale remakes. The cover is perfect for this story.

Characters: I loved Aoife. She was not a helpless heroine. She is a fighter and I loved that. Ronan was ok but he seemed to take a backseat in this story.

Plot: Aoife makes a deal with a little man and her life spirals out of her control. She is in a race against time to figure out how to keep her loved ones safe.

Overall: I truly loved this rendition of Rumpelstiltskin. The author gave him such a believable background filled with hurt and heartache. I will definitely be looking for ore by this author.

Review: Crush

Crush Crush by Chrissy Peebles
My rating: 5 of 5 stars


This is book one of a four book, young adult, vampire series. 

His precious touch could prove deadly… 

When Taylor Sparks moves from New York City to Big Bear Lake, California, her life is forever changed when she meets a hot guy with winter-blue eyes named Jesse. Their attraction is instant, the chemistry undeniable. But sadly, things aren't adding up. Taylor wonders what her 'crush' is hiding. When her new friend, Fred tells her his suspicions about Jesse being a paranormal creature, Taylor laughs. But when Fred turns up dead, she believes every warning he ever told her. 

Taylor is shocked to learn that Big Bear Lake isn't just glittering lakes, towering pines, and breathtaking mountains...there's more...way more than meets the eye. 

Will Taylor dive into a paranormal world she knows nothing about? To be with the one her heart can’t live without?

My Thoughts:

Title/cover: Honestly, it was the author that drew me in this time. I have read books by her before and I am never disappointed. The cover doesn't really give a whole lot away but it does revolve around a crush so the title is spot on.

Characters: I love Taylor & Jesse. Jesse is intriguing and has so many secrets. I can't wait to uncover all of them.

Plot: Taylor moves to a new place before her senior year. However, things in this town are not quite normal.

Overall: I loved this book. The reader does learn some secrets way at the end of the book but there are still some unanswered questions. I can't wait to read book to find out those answers.

Review: Mum's the Word

Mum's the Word Mum's the Word by Kate Collins
My rating: 3 of 5 stars


I don't mean to meddle, honest! But can I help it if my nose for injustice is as keen as my green thumb? Now I, Abby Knight, law school dropout, am the proud new owner of Bloomers, my hometown flower shop. I'm devoted to making my business grow, but I'm no shrinking violet if someone needs my help to right a wrong -- even if that person is already dead....

So maybe Abby's life isn't the bed of roses she was hoping it would be. She adores her job, but a new low-cost competitor is killing her profits - and a black SUV just rammed her vintage Corvette in a hit and run. Determined to track down the driver, she accepts the help of hunky ex-cop Marco Salvare. But their budding relationship is threatened when the trail turns deadly. Now Abby is caught in a tangle of menacing phone calls, police corruption, and murderous road rage. If she's not careful, the next flower arrangement might be for her own funeral.

My Thoughts:

Cover/Title: The cover is a bit busy but it's ok. I like the play on words in the title. Perfect for a book that revolves around a florist.

Characters: The MC Abby is definitely a meddler, which is perfect for a murder mystery.

Plot: Poor Abby is having a hard time. A lot of crazy things are happening to her all while she is trying to solve a murder mystery and help a friend in need.

Overall: A nice cozy little mystery perfect for that day when you want something easy to read.

Review: A Slip in Time

A Slip in Time A Slip in Time by Kathleen Kirkwood
My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Recently freed from captivity in London Tower, Rae Mackinnon returns to the turbulent Highlands and claims his place as laird of Dunraven Castle. As he grapples with clan rivalries and divisiveness within his own family, he is confronted with a startling discovery — a beautiful woman from a distant future, delivered through the portals of Time and into his bed . . .

Swept up in the summer social rounds, Julia Hargrove accompanies her aunt and cousins on an excursion to Scotland, to an ancient castle which has hosted no visitors for two decades — until now. Rumors abound of unusual occurrences at Dunraven Castle — occurrences that are centered in the bedchamber Julia now occupies, where a rugged Highland warrior materializes from the past . . .

What mysteries does Dunraven hold? What secret opens the temporal door, allowing Julia and Rae to reach across the centuries to claim a few stolen moments and nurture a blossoming love? But how long can the rules of Time be broken before the door shuts forevermore?

My Thoughts:

Title/Cover: The title is what drew me in. I am a huge fan of time travel books. I love that glimpse into the past.

Characters: I love Julia & Rae. They had so many challenges they needed to face.

Plot: Julia stumbles into a time slip and meets Rae. Julia, Rae and the Society for Psychical Research scramble to figure out how the time slips work before time runs out for them.

Overall: I loved this book. I especially love how things worked out for everyone at the end. I will definitely be looking forward to more by this author.

Review: Tastes Like Murder

Tastes Like Murder Tastes Like Murder by Catherine Bruns
My rating: 3 of 5 stars


Sally Muccio’s had her crosses to bear: a cheating ex-boyfriend, crazy Italian parents, and an unfaithful husband, just to name a few. After her divorce, she returns to her hometown to start a novelty cookie shop whose specialties include original fortune cookies, served with a sprinkle of foreshadowing. But there’s no warning when her ex-husband’s mistress drops dead on Sal's porch, and police confirm it’s a homicide. Determined to stop her life from becoming a recipe for disaster, Sal takes matters into her own hands. With two very different men vying for her affection, dead bodies piling up, and a reputation hanging by an apron string, Sal finds herself in a race against time to save both her business and life—before the last cookie crumbles.

My Thoughts:

Cover/Title: The title drew me in as well as the fortune cookie.

Characters: I like Sally & Josie. Mike is ok but a bit possessive. Brian seems too perfect and not very professional for a cop. Sally's parents are a hoot! Her grandmother has to babysit her parents!!

Plot: Sally is starting her life over after a recent divorce. Then her ex-husband's mistress is murdered on her porch. The race is on to find the real killer and save her new business.

Overall: A nice little mystery and a pleasant way to spend a Saturday morning.
