Tour Schedule

The Fate Of A Marlowe GirlThe Fate Of A Marlowe Girl by Beth Fred
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Source: Received to Review
Genre: contemporary Romance

Book DescriptionWhen twenty-four-year-old Tiffany escapes her sister Kammy's too wild Cancun bachelorette party, she finds herself in a bar with the unwanted attention of a gorgeous local named Luke. Luke may be charming but Tiffany is leaving in two days and doesn't need any complications. But complications are exactly what she gets when the cops show up to raid Kammy's party. When Kammy is arrested, Tiffany agrees to have dinner with Luke, so he'll help her get Kammy out of jail. Kammy's arrest forces her to spend an extra day in Cancun, meaning she'll miss a crucial meeting, and as an accountant in tax season, she is already drowning in work. Not to mention, every second she spends with Luke makes it harder to leave. With Luke, Tiffany is almost ready to forget about work. Will the airport be their final goodbye?

My thoughts: Tiffany is a responsible sister. Somehow she is guilted into throwing a bachelorette party for her sister to Cancun. Things get out of hand and she is left with a mess to clean up.

Her catastrophe leads her to meet Luke. He basically rescues her and romance ensues.

This is a quick book to read. I really enjoyed the story, but would have liked to know more about their romance and maybe a little more back story. For a quick romance novelette, this is great.

I would only recommend to adults, because of the outrageous behavior at the bachelorette party.

The Other Marlowe Girl

My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Source: Received to Review
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Book Description: When twenty-four-year-old dance school drop out Kammy Marlowe is evicted by her mother, she goes to her favorite bar. She finds an unlikely friend in the blunt eye candy, Enrique. But Kammy knows there is no way she and Enrique have a shot because he's her brother-in-law’s brother and has been privy to her wild past. Enrique swears he’s only interested in the person she is today, but their relationship is tested when her ex-husband's drug dealer attacks her, looking for money. With no options and a money hungry drug dealer on her back, Kammy accepts a position as a dancer at a strip club. But when Enrique shows up at the club, their relationship is over. With no reason to stay in Texas anymore, Kammy auditions for the Bolshevik Ballet and gets the opportunity to go to Russia. Only Enrique is determined to stop her. Will she give up the chance of a lifetime to stay with the man she still loves?  

My thoughts:  Kammy Marlowe is in her twenties and facing some serious problems. She married a man she thought she loved, only to be divorced a few years later and dealing with a mess he created.

She has always ran away from her problems and this time is trying to fix things and make them right. She didn't plan on meeting Enrique and finding a new path in her life.

This book is a quick read. I liked it. I really liked that it answered a few holes that I had form the first book, "The Fate of a Marlowe Girl".

There are some adult issues in this book.  I would only recommend it to ages 17+.
