4.5 Stars Review

4-Stars Review of Hard Ride: I liked this book a lot. The storyline is great, characters are awesome and the only reason I didn't give it a 5 stars is that it needs a little refining (in my humble opinion). The talk about cars and car-parts is something I didn't understand a word of but I still enjoyed reading this book. For car fans this will be a sure treat. ;)
Katie owns a mechanic shops. working with engines is her passion. She loves her cars. She came from a wealthy family but decided not to go into family business. After her father passed away she decided to start her own business. Now someone is embezzling money from her and it has been going on for months. She is super angry and willing to kill the person who dared steal from her...
Houston is her employ and friends. They have both been attracted to each other but never acted upon their attraction. But now Houston has have enough of their flirting and ready to become friends with benefits. He is also overly protective and now that he things Katie's life maybe in danger he doesn't want to leave her alone at all. One thing leads to another and both are madly in love with each other. But before their relationship moves forward they must deal with the impending danger...
The book is thrilling and will keep the readers on their toes. I strongly suggest reading it if you are looking for romantic thriller.

4.5-Stars Review of Harvest Ride: This is a novella. A quick and fun read for romance lovers. Outlaw is hiding from people who do not want her to testify against them. Colum is her former patient who has been in love with her for a long time. By chance they are brought together and now it will be difficult for them to be apart from each other. They also must outrun dangerous people who wants Outlaw dead and won't hesitate to kill anyone standing in their way. It is and adventurous read which I loved reading. :)

5-Stars Review of Sleigh Ride: This is the best of Pierce's books. It is more refined and very well written. All the characters are well-developed as well. I loved Mason's character. He is a shy geeky hero who also happens to be sexy and has a strong personality. Winter is independent woman. Who is not afraid of handling guns and is comfortable working in a profession where men dominate. She is strong but cute as well. I also loved her best friend with benefits. Their interaction was funny and entertaining. Also this book has some very hot & steamy scenes.
Someone is trying to kill Winters and Mason. They have no idea who it is or what they want. But one thing is for sure... they must find out before it is too late. After several attempts on their lives they ran away for a while. To be safe. Mason is determined to protect Winter although she isn't all that helpless. In any case they are together for now...
There is a lot of action and mystery revolving around these two and it makes reading this book all the more interesting. I am glad that I got the chance to read these books. I can't wait to read more books by Trixie Pierce.

Excerpt

Ignoring it, his clothes had dried, and he dressed quickly. Making the bed, he walked into the living room to find Winter bundling into several layers, a snow shovel leaning against the door. “I’m just in time,” he smiled.
“Come on, let’s get this over with,” she returned the smile from under a knit cap and the dark blue parka’s hood. It made her light blue eyes burn a deeper colour, and accentuated the red lips against the paleness of her skin.
Taking a deep breath, and glad his coat didn’t let her see the way his dick liked her, he followed outside.
Snow flurries swirled around them like a river, but it was light and the wind was easy. Unused to shovelling snow after buying a snow blower, he was breathing hard a foot from the porch. Winter continued, whistling. She bent over, and he noticed she wore jeans, low riders that gave him a glimpse of the dark blue g-string.
His breathing escalated for another reason altogether. Images of removing the slip of underwear with his teeth, nibbling and licking the skin, making her moan, caused his heart to beat hard enough to force him backwards. The wall of snow kept him upright. He worked hard to get the image out of his head, closing both eyes and counting to one hundred.
“Are you okay? Do you need a break, Mason? Mason? Are you okay?” her voice grew stronger, more urgent.
He opened to find her only a foot away, a hand on his chest. Swallowing the lump in his throat, he croaked, “Yes, I, I …”
“Do you need to go inside?” She jerked off a glove and put a warm hand against his cheek. “You’re really hot, maybe we should go inside.”
The feel of her palm against his skin unlocked a dam. He shoved a hand into her hood, under the cap, grabbed a handful of the silky blond hair, and pulled her head back. He stared into her eyes, gauging. “I’m going to kiss you, and kiss you hard, Winter. All you have to do is say yes.” His voice dropped several octaves, came out deep and harsh, much like his breathing.
“Yes,” she whispered, a puff of coffee laced breath gently pushing against his face.
It was all he needed. He took her mouth, pushing hard, forcing her to open to him. Taking advantage, he tasted her, the mocha laced coffee, and the underlying sweetness that was all Winter. Throwing the shovel to the side, he wrapped the other arm around her waist, jerking the soft body against his. Her moan vibrated against his mouth, and the imprisoned beast growled. Mine.
Using his tongue, he showed her exactly what he wanted, in and out of her mouth, tasting every inch between thrusts, giving her little room to breathe or decide to end it. He wanted her to know exactly what he wanted, how he wanted it, and that she was going to enjoy every minute. Her hips moved against him, and the beast he thought died with Beth roared to life.
