Sorry Guys

I know that I haven't been posting here and I'm so sorry , I had that same friend come at me once again and made me feel like I shouldn't be doing reviews but then I stopped and started think, I've been doing this since 2015, and not once did any of the publishers ever found or said anything was wrong with the way I write my reviews , and she's only been back in reviewing since 2018 , so who's she to tell me that I'm making mistakes in the way I write. So as of right now I'm back for good,

 you're going through hell...keep going.

Seventeen-year-old coder Jinx Marshall grew up spending weekends drilling with her paranoid dad for a doomsday she’s sure will never come. She’s an expert on self-heating meal rations, Krav Maga and extracting water from a barrel cactus. Now that her parents are divorced, she’s ready to relax. Her big plans include making it to level 99 in her favorite MMORPG and spending the weekend with her new hunky stepbrother, Toby.

But all that disaster training comes in handy when an explosion traps her in a burning building. Stuck leading her headstrong stepsister, MacKenna, and her precocious little brother, Charles, to safety, Jinx gets them out alive only to discover the explosion is part of a pattern of violence erupting all over the country. Even worse, Jinx’s dad stands accused of triggering the chaos.

In a desperate attempt to evade paramilitary forces and vigilantes, Jinx and her siblings find Toby and make a break for Mexico. With seemingly the whole world working against them, they’ve got to get along and search for the truth about the attacks—and about each other. But if they can survive, will there be anything left worth surviving for?

 

My thoughts

 Usually the only time I pick up a book that involves politics is when it's a thriller so I was surprised when I decided to give this one a try and I'm glad I did, because it actually had me hooked from the first page to the every end , one of the reasons and I would say the biggest reason was the twist and turns that came with each new page and chapter , and at every turn it made you wounder about which of the characters was trustable or not . As well as non pack action though out the hole book, as for the characters , the only one I had some trouble with was Mackeena, because there was times I just wanted to to tell her to grow up and act her age, but eventually she came to realize that but it took her a long while to do it.other than that I had no other problem with it at all, and can't wait to seen what happens in the next book .With that said I want to thank Harlequin Teen and Netgalley for letting me read and review it exchange for my honest opinion .

How I pick my Monthly TBR Out

How I pick my monthly TBR ?

I first start with books I have to read for blog tours ( which is never a hole lot),buddy reads ,  then books I  want to read for any readathons I'm planning on doing or Facebook groups I'm in like the :

The Reading Rivalry ( each month we're put in teams ( from the 1-25 of that month) and there's a list of criteria to read for so 

First I write down the criteria challenges , 

 

2nd:Go to my Netgalley ARCs then Kindle ,and physical books to find ones that fit.



3 : then I write them down beside the criteria I want to use them for.

Then all I have to think about it my non-critical books which can be anything .

 

The second thing I do is I go to random number generator and use that to pick my Netgalley ARCs ( the main reason I use the random number generator is because it's a fun way of picking my books because I don't know what books are been picking until the number comes up)  I want to read the rest of the month as well as physical books. 

For picking my physical books I just pick what catch's my eye ,it can be a all time favorite author, a cover or book title . Books that was sent to me from Forever Romance or Grand Central Publishing .


Then I make a list of the books and then I do a stack it list where I pick the first four or five books from that list , then I go from there .

 

This way it's a fun way of picking books plus I don't stress about how long a book is and it helps me to mix and match my genres .And if I want to I can add more to my list after reading the list of books . Plus it's also away for me to pick up books I might not have picked up or their been on my Kindle or Physical book shelf for a while

Cowboy Firefighter Christmas Kiss


Title: Cowboy Firefighter Christmas Kiss
Series: Smokin' Hot Cowboys #5
Author: Kim Redford
Genre: Romance
Pages:384
Sourcebooks Casablanca
October 29,2019
Rating:
The firefighting cowboys of Wildcat Bluffs take Christmas VERY seriously...

When Ivy Bryant arrives in town to run the historic honkytonk, she finds herself immersed in traditions that can't be bucked. Luckily, cowboy firefighter Slade Steele has an idea to increase both the honkytonk's income, and his own. It's an offer Ivy couldn't refuse, even if the passion between them wasn't already reaching the boiling point.

Ivy and Slade's love story is legendary--when you add in arsonist cattle rustlers, a runaway Angus bull, and a chili recipe that includes liquor AND chocolate, Wildcat Bluffs will be celebrating a cowboy Christmas unlike any other.

Smokin' Hot Cowboys:
A Cowboy Firefighter for Christmas (Book 1)
Blazing Hot Cowboy (Book 2)
A Very Cowboy Christmas (Book 3)
Hot for a Cowboy (Book 4)
Cowboy Firefighter Christmas Kiss (Book 5)

My thoughts
Would I recommend it?yes
Would I read any more of this series ?yes
would I read more by this author?yes
What perfect story to read doing Christmas or any time you want a cute romance to get lost in to, it shows the love that a town and its people have for each other as well as family , and that some times Christmas miracles do happen, and that all you have to do is believe in them.As for the characters I loved them , loved Slade and Ivy and while it did seem characters moved fast in their romance ,it wasn't about their romance it was also about how a town pulls together and how one little girl just wants her best friend back safe and sound. So if you want a cute and adorable romance then this is this the one for you, I can see it been made into a lifetime movie if they could and would do it right. And I had no problem getting lost in the story without reading the rest of the series . With that said I want to think Netgalley for letting me read and review it .
