Review: Her Secret, His Surprise by Paula Altenburg


22571366***This is a Red-Hot Bliss Title! As such, it contains sexual content***

Conflict of interest is an understatement…

Since being disowned by her strict father, Cass Stone has spent her adulthood trying to prove him wrong. Her drive has led to more success than her family ever thought she’d achieve, and life is looking great. Not even an incredible and mysterious one night stand that leaves her a single mom can trip her up...until the father of her baby stumbles back into her life, as sexy and unreliable as ever.

Logan Alexander hasn’t forgotten the night he spent with Cass two years ago, but he never expects to end up undercover as her assistant. His job saves lives—like it should have saved his brother—and he can’t afford complications. It’s difficult enough to maintain his cover as a carefree wanderer when he realizes his attraction to Cass hasn’t faded...and then he meets Cass’s daughter.

Review:
Her Secret, His Surprise was a really sweet story with two very likable characters - even though they are both keeping BIG secrets.

I loved how Logan and Cass take the high ground with each other, even though they have plenty to be angry about. Instead of lashing out, they try to see each others point of view. It made their rocky relationship very believable and easy to root for. Olivia, Cass and Logan’s little girl, was all kinds of adorable, as was Logan's reaction to her.

The mystery/undercover aspect fell a little flat for me. I was like…that's it? - so I kind of wish this just stuck with the secret baby plot but overall it was a cute read.

You can't go wrong with an Entangled Bliss title if you're looking for a quick, sweet romance for summer beach reading. Because it’s a Red Hot Bliss title, there’s a little extra heat in the sexy department!

Cheesetastic movie: Bigfoot

I LOVE a really good (meaning AWFUL) cheesy movies and Bigfoot (2012) (Amazon) one was one of the best (worst). As a child of the 70’s – it doesn’t get much better than this.

It stars Danny Bonaduce (the Partridge Family) and Barry Williams (The Brady Bunch) as A DJ and a conservationist. They team up to fight against Bigfoot with an array of D-list celebs. The dialogue…..omgosh - just watch it!

The cast…the dialogue…the GIANT Bigfoot – awesome!

Trailer – believe me – it doesn’t do this movie justice.

Tune In Tuesday is a weekly feature in which bloggers get to showcase another one of their loves, music! The feature was originally created and hosted by Ginger over at GReads! but can now be found over at Kate’s Tales of Books and Bands.

Glass Animals – Gooey

Ok – soooo I’ve loved this song for awhile now but it’s really strange and I wasn’t sure anyone else would like it. I’ve heard it on the radio this past week so you’re probably going to hear it anyway. Why not from me first!

Here is the link to the Gooey official video if you want to see – it’s WEIRD & kinda gross! but I like it. lol All their videos are kind of freaky.


Vance Joy – Mess is Mine

I featured Riptide a few weeks ago - this is another pretty song by him.
