Walk Through Fire cover - (un)Conventional Bookviews

Walk Through Fire (Chaos #4) by Kristen Ashley

Millie Cross knows what it’s like to burn for someone. She was young and wild and he was fierce and even wilder-a Chaos biker who made her heart pound. They fell in love at first sight and life was good, until she learned she couldn’t be the woman he needed and made it so he had no choice but to walk away. Twenty years later, Millie’s chance run-in with her old flame sparks a desire she just can’t ignore. And this time, she won’t let him ride off . . .

Bad boy Logan “High” Judd has seen his share of troubles with the law. Yet it was a beautiful woman who broke him. After ending a loveless marriage, High is shocked when his true love walks back into his life. Millie is still gorgeous, but she’s just a ghost of her former self. High’s intrigued at the change, but her betrayal cut him deep-and he doesn’t want to get burned again. As High sinks into meting out vengeance for Millie’s betrayal, he’ll break all over again when he realizes just how Millie walked through fire for her man . . .

Controlled Burn cover - (un)Conventional Bookviews

Controlled Burn (Boston Fire #2) by Shannon Stacey

Rick Gullotti lives the good life. He fights fires, dates beautiful women—though none long enough so they cast wistful glances at jewelry stores—and has great friends. And thanks to helping out the elderly couple who own his building, his rent is low. But when concerns about their health lead him to contact their only son, his life starts getting away from him.
Jessica Broussard has no interest in leaving sunny San Diego or her cushy corner office for Boston, but her father—who happens to be her boss—dispatches her to deal with the grandparents she’s never met. She’s unprepared for the frigid winter, loving relatives who aren’t the monsters she’s been led to believe, and the hot, scruffy firefighter who lives upstairs.
At first, Jessica is determined to get back to her comfortable life as quickly as possible. All she has to do is talk her grandparents into selling their monstrosity of a house and moving to a retirement community. But she underestimates Rick’s dedication—and his considerable charm. Nobody’s taking advantage of his friends on his watch, even if that makes the tempting southern California girl with the long legs his adversary. Unfortunately for them both, the only thing more urgent than the matter at hand is their sizzling chemistry, and it’s quickly becoming too strong to resist.


ARC from author:

Wrong cover - (un)Conventional Bookviews

Wrong by Jana Aston

I have a history of picking the wrong guy. Gay? Player? Momma’s boy? Check, check and check.

Now I can’t stop fantasizing about one of the customers at the coffee shop I work at between classes. It’s just a harmless crush, right? It’s not like I ever see this guy outside of the coffee shop. It’s not like I’m going to see him while attempting to get birth control at the student clinic. While wearing a paper gown. While sitting on an exam table. Because he’s the doctor. Shoot. Me.

But what if, for once, the man I’ve had the dirtiest, most scandalous fantasies about turned out to be everything but wrong?

Did you get some exciting-looking books this week? Remember to leave me your link so I can check out your Stacking the Shelves and or Bought, Borrowed and Bagged post, too 🙂 Thanks for stopping by! Have a spectacular Saturday.

  1. It has actually been an exciting week for books for me as I’m up to my eyes in zombies! Who knew there were still so many zombie books out there that I hadn’t tried! *happy dance* Hope you enjoy your book grabs for this week!

  2. I love the covers of these books! Har ikke kjøpt noen bøker denne uken, prøver å få unna litt av den store stabelen av uleste bøker hjemme. Men det holdt hardt da jeg oppdaget at vi hadde fått den siste boken i serien om “En sjøens helt” av Jon Michelet på jobb i dag. Tror nok den må vente en stund til 😉 God helg til deg fra meg 🙂

  3. You know I’m most envious of Walk Through Fire. 😉 I can’t wait to get to read it. I’m glad you enjoyed it so much…I think I’m going to have succeeded in turning you into a KA addict when all is said and done. 😀 I hope you had a wonderful weekend, Lexxie. Saturday was very busy with a day-long band competition. Yesterday was very busy as well – even if we never did make it out of our pj’s. **BIG HUGS**

    • It was so good, Brandee! And I think your job is already done… reading Rock Chick Redemption right now, but those guys are possibly a little too alpha for me. I enjoy the stories and all, but the guys make me want to beat them up!
      WOW, the band competition was lasting the whole day? I’m sure the kids are still feeling that!
      And hey, it’s not just because your in your PJ’s that you aren’t busy, my dear. *BIG HUGS*

      • LOL I just love KA’s brand of alpha! Even though a few of the Hot Bunch did ruffle my feathers. 😉 I probably wouldn’t put up with some of the things they do but I sure do enjoy reading about them doing it to someone else. 😉 *waggles eyebrows*
        Today is the regional competition for band – where we compete to make it to State. Keep your fingers crossed. I really want them to make it since it’s Sky’s last year. Happy Tuesday, my friend! **BIG HUGS**
