Across the Line by Kate Willoughby

across the lineWhy I read it:  This is one from my own TBR.

What it’s about: (from Goodreads)  Calder Griffin needs to get back in shape. Sidelined last season by a knee injury, he’s determined to return to the San Diego Barracudas and play the best hockey of his career. This might even be the year he gets out of his talented older brother’s shadow.

For months, Becca Chen has poured her energy into Cups, the restaurant she owns, desperate to prove to her parents that she can succeed in the career of her choice, not theirs. But after she spends a five-hour plane ride flirting with charming, magic-on-the-ice Calder, she tells herself she needs a fling.

Becca and Calder can’t keep their hands off each other, but they know the relationship can’t last. They live on opposite coasts, and they’re both too devoted to their careers. All they have to do is prevent their feelings from crossing the line from lust to love…

What worked for me (and what didn’t):  I enjoyed On the Surface, the first book in the In the Zone series very much so I really have no excuse for taking so long to buy and read this one.  Especially because it turns out, I pretty much lapped this one up with a spoon.

February Round Up

Monthly Mini Review

Protectingtheirmatepart1Protecting Their Mate (Part 1) by Mia Thorne – B-  (review copy provided via author) This is a very hot, very short read, coming in (heh) at around 30 pages.  Ashley is a 20 year old wolf shifter who has been kept away from the pack by her parents, to live only in the human world.  Every month it is increasingly difficult for her to manage the sexual craving she has at the full moon and her parents lock her away in the basement.  This month has been even worse and it has been four days and no-one has given her any food.

The local pack Alpha has sent his second, Blake, to find Ashley after hearing word she is being mistreated.  When he finds her, she is not only in serious need of his help (in a number of ways) he also finds that she is in mating heat. It appears she’s the only remaining female werewolf who can bear offspring.  This obviously makes her very important to the survival of the pack.
