Hi all! I am Patty. I am married to my amazing husband James. Or family is made up of our son, step daughter and our three dogs. I love my family. I am a multi-talented individual with lots of hobbies. I like to craft, bake, sew, read and dabble in photography. I love the beach, traveling (not that I go to many places), movies and music. But the most important thing about me is I love to read!
By definition I am a book nerd! My passion is to get lost in a story as if I were watching a movie. I love interacting with authors and am a member of a few street teams. (The Grimlets, Team Camilla, etc.) I post reviews of books on several sites such as Amazon, GORead, Goodreads, Nook and IBooks. I post on Twitter and Facebook. But the most important thing is I just enjoy reading and love sharing my enjoyment with others.
How this Blog came to be: One day while out doing my 4 mile, walk my friend Pauline says "Hey why don't you start blogging about the books you read". I thought about it and wondered hmmmm "Maybe I should." So I started this blog and named it Moohnshine’s Corner Yes I spelled it wrong, on purpose. Long standing joke! LOL!
Hope you like it. Thanks. #HappyReading

Review | Always Mine

36590917Always Mine (69th Street Bad Boys)

by Amy Brent (Goodreads Author)
 4.79  ·   Rating details ·  19 Ratings  ·  16 Reviews

She’s forbidden fruit, untouchable, off limits. 

Amelia Wilson is my employee and …the woman I left behind in the hotel room six years ago.

Yes it was a one night stand – for me.

For her? May be not.

Her sassiness drives me mad.

And that a$$ she hides under those straight skirts doesn’t do any good either.

I want to make it up to her,

But this s*xy bombshell doesn’t seem interested.

And just as I think everything’s going to fall in place,

The super confident b*tch takes a business decision.

A decision involving my money,

Without consulting me.

I guess, it’s time to teach her a lesson!

Always Mine is a standalone second chance romance in the 69th St. Bad Boys series. It has no cliffhanger, no cheating and a happily ever after. It features a dominant alpha male and his feisty BBW. It can be read on its own but if you like Manhattan billionaires and the women who win their hearts, be sure to read the rest of the series!

My Review

Another great 69St Bad Boy Novel!  I am loving how even though all these books are in the same series, they each have a different author.  Which really has put  a wonderful spin on the series.  Each story unique in its own way.

In this novel, we have a second chance romance in the making.  Amelia has just started a new job.  She has landed the CEO position of a hotel chain.  What she doesn’t realize when she accepts it is that the owner of said chain is a one night stand from six years ago.

Lincoln is said owner of the hotel chain and billionaire resident of the famous Avalon.  Home to the rich and the rich.  wink wink  He is not prepared to handle having his one night stand working as the CEO of his hotel chain.  First reaction… her.  But his bff and co-worker won’t let him.  He has to agree that Amelia is perfect for the position and knows her stuff.  But can they put aside the past to move forward with the company in a professional manner.  Well hopping back into bed with one another sure isn’t gonna help matters.

With Lincoln confused about his feelings, he is on a war path and Amelia is in the line of fire.  She just may lose her career.  But when tragedy strikes, Lincoln feels like an idiot and has to figure out a way to make it right.

This was another great read by Amy Brent.  I recently discovered her books not to long ago and have enjoyed them immensely.  She has a wonderful writing style.  She has a way with writing about those bad boys.

The characters in her books are highly entertaining and will draw you into the story.  In this book Amelia’s character is a sassy, brilliant woman.  But she is also a strong survivor.  Lincoln is a lonely and sexy as sin billionaire.  But he is also stubborn with a dose of caring and love that are hidden underneath.

This story is full of love, sassiness, strength and determination.  Amy took a sexy hot man and turned his story into one of passion and caring love.  If you are looking for a hot sexy read with a dose of reality, then this book is for you.

Wicked Soul | Reveal

Wicked Soul
Nora Ash
(Ancient Blood, #1)
Publication date: February 10th 2017
Genres: Adult, Paranormal, Romance

He saved me… And then he blood-bonded me. Now I’m his.

My first meeting with a Chicago vampire went better than expected.

Up until that night, all I knew about vampires was limited to a few common facts: they drink blood, they get a mean sunburn and if you find yourself alone with one, you’re dead.

Except he didn’t kill me.

Sexy, broody Warin clearly had his own reasons for sparing my life and tying me with his blood, but if he’d known how much trouble I’d attract, I bet he wouldn’t have bothered. When he blood-bonded me, secrets even I didn’t know about myself came to light.

Secrets that will pull us both deep into the eternal war between vampires and the witches determined to rid the world of their evil.

We have only one choice now: fight the forces hell-bent on breaking our bond…

Or die.

She cripples me just by walking in the room.

I want her more than I want my next breath, but does she feel the same? And would it stop me if she didn’t? Fuck no. After a long year of loses, I’m ready for a win. And I’m gonna start with her.

Cause she’s always been mine and we both know it.

Reveal| Right Kiss Wrong Guy

Right Kiss. Wrong Guy.
Natalie Decker
(Offsides #2)
Published by: Swoon Romance
Publication date: January 23rd 2018
Genres: Contemporary, Romance, Young Adult

You’d think a girl with the most romantic name in the world would have her pick of boyfriends.

But Valentine’s Day sucks when you’re single. Just ask Juliet Valentine, whose last name happens to also be the name of the most dreaded made-up holiday ever.

A romantic at heart, this year is especially hard on Juliet. Her sister, Layla, is in a new relationship, her mom’s match-making business is doing great, and her school’s new fundraiser is “Love-Grams.”

Juliet’s miserable, a little jealous, and lonely.

Quarterback Jared Black is the most popular guy in school. A star athlete, Jared tops the most-eligible bachelor list year after year. But to Juliet Valentine, he’s all but invisible. She isn’t impressed.

Jared’s never had to work hard to get the attention of a girl before. Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and he’s determined to ask Juliet out. After all, if Tyler can win over Layla, Jared ought to have a shot with Layla’s sister.

Unlike Tyler and Layla, charm, flattery and good looks won’t work on Juliet. So with the V-Day dance coming up, Jared uses the school’s Love-Grams to let Juliet know how he feels. Should be simple enough, right?

Wrong. Each attempt ends up either in the trash or thrown in someone’s face. Juliet won’t play his game.

Now, without a date to the dance Jared realizes it’s going to take a Hail Mary to win the girl of his dreams.

But then, sudden dis-appearance of Josie’s father…
Which could cost her freedom or even her life!
Well guess what, Blaine’s found a new purpose to his life!Don’t you worry Josie, Blaine is there by your side!

Goodreads | Amazon


My Review

Josie is quiet school teacher, who has a father with a gambling addiction. She has worked her entire life taking care of her father. No time for herself or love. One night she goes out for a night on the town to celebrate her friends upcoming wedding. There she meets a handsome stranger.

Blaine is a lawyer, who inherited his family’s practice and fortune when his parents died a few years ago. He has just been coasting along. Alone and afraid to live. He is a bonafide player. He is on the prowl for his next one night stand, when he spots her across the room.

Blaine and Josie have a hot night of sex and he leaves as planned. What he didn’t plan on was wanting to see her again. He starts up a world wind romance with her, quickly falling in love with her.

When her father gets Josie in some major trouble that lands Josie in jail, Blaine is heartbroken. He will do anything to help her. What will Josie do? Protect herself or her father? Things get dicey and lives are threatened. Josie sees no other way out. Will she leave the only person who loves her to protect him?

This was another compelling Mia Ford book. Full of hot sex, action, adventure and thrills. A story that will have you on the edge of your seat. With lovable intense characters. I was biting my nails with worry over Josie and Blaine.

Mia Ford has a wonderful writing style. Her stories flow smoothly and flawlessly. Taking a really hot man and creating a story that is not only full of hot steamy sex but serious drama, adventure and thrills.

This is a page turner full of action. If you like a good thriller with hot man candy, then this is for you.
