Do You Like My Wiener?: a non-expert’s no-nonsense guide to dating by Brenda Rothert


Book Blurb:

With laugh-out-loud mishaps and heartfelt advice, bestselling romance author Brenda Rothert shows readers that while dating these days can be the worst, great men aren’t just fictional.

Ladies, we’ve all been there…a good first date is wrapping up and we’re sure a second date is likely after a great goodnight kiss beside our car. He’s tall, funny and charming. FINALLY a good one. He asks to get in the car, which seems natural since it’s cold outside. And then, once inside, another kiss, and he exposes himself and asks us if we like his wiener.
Wait, what? You haven’t been there? Guess that one only happened to me. What about the guy who spends most of a first date complaining bitterly about his ex-wife? The one with the guy who cops to his criminal record over dessert?
Dating these days can leave a girl frustrated and disgusted. But fear not, I’m here to help. I’m a veteran dater, having spent a fair amount of time in the cheap-cologne scented trenches. And while I am admittedly not an expert, I can help you avoid my mistakes.
I’ll show you how to prepare yourself for dating, how to spot the red flags and how to laugh off the misadventures you will inevitably have. And hopefully, how to avoid an awkward wiener encounter of your own.

Healing Touch by Brenda Rothert

Releasing June 12


Book Blurb:

 

She spends her nights treating patients, but Dr. Jocelyn Drake’s own wounds are unfixable. Her ex-husband and his younger, bouncier girlfriend work just a few floors away at Tulane Medical Center, and they serve as a constant reminder of what Joss lost. But a fierce determination to continue her research project and a shred of remaining pride keep Joss from transferring out of the Big Easy.
Carson Stephens recently returned from a tour of duty in the Middle East, and though willing women present themselves at every turn, his closest companion is loneliness. His night-shift work supervising the electrical and mechanical systems at the hospital is a perfect fit – it’s solitary work putting broken things back together.
When the electrical system on Joss’ floor goes haywire, she’s frazzled by the sexy electrician who sparks her dormant sex drive. He’s brooding and cocky – so not her type. But if Carson has his way, his hands will work their magic on more than just the wiring, and he’ll show Joss a night of passion that restores her shattered confidence.
But what happens after that night? As their relationship grows into something more, Joss and Carson face ups and downs, and they both realize that the healing has only just begun.

Book Blurb:

Sometimes appearances deceive. Take me, for instance. I look like a respectable doctor with his shit together, but the rural Montana mental hospital I work at is actually a sanctuary from my demons. At just thirty-five years old, I’ve already failed on an epic scale. Treating patients at Hawthorne Hill is part of my atonement.
I’ve found peace when a new patient turns me inside out. Allison Cole is a beautiful, haunted survivor who fell into silence after witnessing a murder. But even without words, I’m drawn to her. The closer we get, the more I’m tempted to cross my professional boundaries and give in to my desire.
Soon I find myself in a desperate race to put the pieces of Allison’s silence together. Her life becomes inextricably entwined with mine as I fight to save the second chance I never thought I’d have. I’ll break whatever rules I have to in order to protect this woman who’s been to hell and back. For her, I’ll do harm.

Book Blurb:

Sienna Mills knows her alpha males.
They brood.
They growl.
They love the word “mine”.
After spending her early twenties in and out of relationships with alphas, Sienna used her knowledge to found Alpha Mail, a booming business that allows women to sign up for emails, letters, and texts from their own brooding, red-blooded man.
Her star is on the rise and Sienna is attracting the interest of investors when a mysterious man starts messaging her about the true nature of an alpha. She’s got it all wrong, he says, and he’s willing to show her how a real man makes women respond.
The more Sienna hears from him, the more aggravated she becomes. Who does this anonymous, supposed alpha think he is, anyway?
And yet…she can’t deny his messages are becoming the best part of her days. Commitment-phobic Sienna finds herself wanting more from her sensei of seduction. But is she willing to trust her heart to an alpha again?

 

My Review

4.5 Stars!

I dare you not to fall in love with this book! Brenda Rothert has done it again with a sweet, sexy story of finding love in a place you never expected.

This review will be brief, because spoilers are whack, yo!
Suffice it to say, this book rocked my socks! Brenda Rothert has quite the knack for creating lovable characters and she really outdid herself in this book. With the exception of two minor characters who were a bit on the crazy side, I loved every single character in this book. Sienna has been burned by love. She is done with alpha males who are really alpha and done with men in general. She created this company, Alpha Mail, that provides a service to clients who want an alpha male without the complications of real-life meetings and relationships. Then, one day, she gets an email from a man claiming he is a real alpha and he knows how to to treat her right. He goes by RoughRider. I honestly thought RoughRider’s real identity would remain a mystery longer than it did and, admittedly, I had an idea who he was, but Rothert did a nice job of throwing bread crumbs leading to a few different suspects. When the reveal happens, it is kind of awesome and a little sad all at the same time. The reveal happens about mid-way through the book, but it leads to a great twist in the story. Of course, our couple get their HEA. Then, there is this entire little substory going on that had me tearing up many times. One character in particular will weave his way into your heart and take up residence. I was sure Rothert was going to destroy me with a different outcome and I can’t tell you the amount of relief I felt when she didn’t go that way. However, this guy has some other people in his life that most certainly need their own book. **hint, hint, wink, wink**

I can’t recommend this book enough. It was a joy to read with the perfect amount of sweet, a side of sexy and the tiniest bit of angst. It was near perfection! A must read!!

BLURB:


I had it all.
Breaking into the entertainment business as a teenager wasn’t easy. I spent years of my childhood traveling, auditioning and hoping my big break would come. And when I did, I rose to a level I never imagined.
Elle Tyler: model, singer and actress. I couldn’t go anywhere without security anymore. It was everything I ever wanted and more – fame, fortune and worldwide recognition. At age twenty-four, I was living a dream.
But a single act of violence shattered my fairytale existence. In a matter of seconds, all the goodness in me was ripped to shreds. Overnight, the people around me dropped away, moving on to find the next big thing. I gave up on myself, becoming a woman so dark and forlorn I no longer recognized myself.
But the stranger who saved me that day, Justin Lockhart, never gave up on me. He still saw light through my darkness. And as we grew closer, I started to see it, too. And I also started to see that before that terrible day, maybe I didn’t really have it all. Maybe I was always missing the only thing that really matters. 

My Review:

4.5 Stars!!

Hidden Depth is a lovely (pun intended) book about overcoming our fears and letting yourself be loved.

I loved Elle and Justin! Elle goes through something traumatic and struggles to be okay afterward. Justin saves her literally and figuratively. They come from different worlds, but tragedy brings them together. Elle is honest and flawed and that makes her a beautiful character. Justin is almost too good to be true and you can’t help falling in love with him. The small town setting is great. The secondary characters are present but not overbearing.

I did have a couple of things that that left me a bit unsatisfied. The wrap up of Elle’s tragedy was a bit rushed. It was a major catalyst for the events of the book but was wrapped up as almost an afterthought. The other thing was something Justin found out when he returned to his hometown. I know this big secret was a plot driver, but it felt a bit unnecessary and honestly, I thought it had the potential to add another layer to Elle’s story in an entirely different way. I know this is all a bit mysterious, but I don’t do spoilers and both would be spoileriffic. So… sorry, not sorry.

This is a beautiful book about healing and love and letting love help you heal. Another must read from Brenda Rothert.

Excerpt:

“How are you today, Allison?” Dr. Heaton asks, her familiar tone making it seem like we’re old friends.

I stare out the window of her office, wondering if the weather outside is as nice as it looks. The sun is shining bright in a clear blue sky again, but it’s April. In my hometown of Chicago, April can be a bitch. It’s cold, rainy, and dreary.

And I’m even farther north now. I bet it’s chilly outside, the sun’s rays just giving the illusion of warmth.

“You can talk to me,” Heaton says for at least the twentieth time since I’ve been here. “Everything said in this room is confidential. I’m here to help you work through the grief I know you’re feeling.”

I glance around her office. There are framed diplomas on the wood-plank walls and bookshelves with books and picture frames arranged just so. The photos show smiling people posing for the camera, all of them smiling so perfectly they could be the paper photos that come in picture frames when you first buy them.

A fountain in the shape of a bunch of bamboo gurgles in a corner, and neatly trimmed bonsai trees line the ledge of the large window behind Heaton’s desk.

Even the box of tissues on the coffee table in front of me has been methodically placed, one corner of the square in front of me so it makes a diamond shape. The top tissue is pulled up, its sides still tucked neatly inside. It looks like a tissue fountain, beautifully shaped into a parallel pattern.

That’s not the tissue box of a doctor whose patients feel comfortable crying. If the box were half-empty, with little white specks of tissue dust dotting the coffee table, I’d at least feel like it was okay to use one.

A smile quirks at my lips as I imagine whipping out a tissue or two. I’m picturing Heaton descending on the box right after me to tidy up the tissue fountain and brush away the tissue flecks.
