With all the time spent at home over the last five months (and I am a homebody) I find I am seeking out some genre’s more then others. Right now if I can find a book that has a nice blend of humor it is a must read for me. I was perusing my bookshelf and here are a few that you may not have read before but are worth picking up.

What’s a book with humor/comedy I should look at?

Need You For Keeps by Marina Adair

The first book in series with animal sidekicks and all.

Need You for Keeps (Heroes of St. Helena, #1)Need You for Keeps by Marina Adair
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Deputy Jonah Baudouin should stay away from town trouble maker and savior of pets, Shay Michaels. She lets her emotions set her path and that is exact opposite of Jonah. Jonah should be focusing on running for Sheriff but Shay keeps crossing his path the next thing he knows they have a kiss they will not talk about and he is babysitting a kitten he doesn’t want. Shay has a way of making him smile, she is beautiful both inside and out and Jonah can’t seem to stay away. But when the town of St. Helena’s most influential takes airs some of Shay’s dirty laundry to stop her from her cause, everything becomes a hot mess and Jonah needs to decide if he stands by Shay’s side or lets her go.

Loved this, great summer read. Shay is a free spirit and so animated it comes off of each page in the story. Her friends are hilarious, the side characters are a real treat as well. Jonah is a pure charmer, he wants Shay but at the same time tries to run from it. Slow burn romance at it’s finest.

Junkyard Dog by Bijou Hunter

This is the first in the White Horse series but one of my favorite rereads by this author. You have a dirty talking hero and a feisty heroine who marches to her own two and twins that could give the shining twins a run for their money.

Junkyard Dog (White Horse, #1)Junkyard Dog by Bijou Hunter
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Angus Hayes has a reputation of being surly, arrogant, and scary. Single mom Candy Wilburn, doesn’t care she needs the job as his assistant and no matter what he says she lets it brush off of her with a snappy comeback.

Angus doesn’t understand Candy, she should be quivering in fear and quitting. However, she sticks around and gives as good as she gets. Angus decides he is going to keep her, he doesn’t know what to think of what he thinks are her “weird” children, but decides he will keep them too. Now to convince Candy they are meant to be together.

I loved this one, an instant favorite. Angus is a living Oscar the grouch, he is hilarious and so mean trying get Candy off kilter. Candy has a mouth on her and I wanted the book to go on and on and on. Definitely a favorite book from this author. Highly entertaining.

The Wall of Winnipeg and Me by Mariana Zapata

This was a laugh out loud read for me and one of those that I recommended right away to friends.

The Wall of Winnipeg and MeThe Wall of Winnipeg and Me by Mariana Zapata
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Vanessa Mazur has decided it is time to give her notice to Aiden Graves, The Wall of Winnipeg, football star. Aiden is a man of few words, even though Vanessa has worked for him for two years, she still doesn’t know if she has done a good job or if he even likes her. Imagine her surprise when Aiden shows up on her door step, wanting her back. Vanessa isn’t interested and for the first time in Aiden’s life he has to work hard at something that is not football, keeping Vanessa in his life.

This was delightfully fun. I loved it from beginning to end. AIden has layers to his character that unfold as the story goes. I thought Vanessa was wonderful, she is a fighter and she and Aiden have more in common than what either thought. Full of intriguing characters, humor, and a few shockers this is a book to pick up and lounge for the day with. Fantastic.

My Commander by Alanea Alder

The first in the Bewitched and Bewildered series. This was so much fun and I want to be Meryn when I grow up. She is a nerd, pixie, and drives Aiden crazy. A paranormal treat.

My Commander (Bewitched and Bewildered, #1)My Commander by Alanea Alder
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Meryn Evans doesn’t know what compelled her to move or climb over a fence to see what was behind it. She is caught immediately and while trying to conjure up an excuse to get her out of this mess, she is thrown over a hulk of a man who tells her she is his mate. Meryn doesn’t believe him for a moment this man is stable, instead she plans her escape.

Tempers flare and Aiden McKenzie is confused as to why his mate is not accepting him at his word. Of course she is human and doesn’t know shifters or any other paranormal beings exist, but still he is an alpha and she is his mate.

Once Meryn has time to learn and accept her new path in life, she finds she is the target for someone who is trying to kill her off. Aiden is protective to a fault, but Meryn is a firecracker all on her self and has a way of getting herself in trouble. Can this new couple find who is after Meryn and start their new life together?

So much fun. I loved Meryn she is a geek, I geeked out on her movie knowledge. Aiden is a hoot, he is fairly rigid but with Meryn his life is turned upside down. Full of surprises and I am ready to just sit down and read the whole series in one sitting. Excellent read.

The Spitfire Series by Jordan Silver

Erotic humor at its finest. This is completely unbelievable but the chemistry is off the charts and the back and forth banter is what sells this book. Plus Arianna is unpredicatble and Shane doesn’t quite know how to handle her.

The Spitfire Series: Books 1-3 (The Spitfire #1-3)The Spitfire Series: Books 1-3 by Jordan Silver
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Shane Flanagan has been questioning his sanity the minute he met Arianna “Mouth” Rossi. She has been a pain in his side with her continual references to the mafia and his resemblance to them and the antics she has put him through with her job, apartment, and overall anything associated with her. Through it all though Shane realizes she is meant to be his, now he has to find a way to tame the mouth.

Hilariously entertaining. Shane is mafia and there are things he doesn’t know about Arianna. Normally someone going head to head with him would be shaking in their boots, but not Arianna, she doesn’t even flinch. Some laugh out loud moments make for a delightful read

Lady Boss
Shane has gone about making Arianna “mouth” his, in every way possible. However he didn’t realize she was the daughter of a mob boss in Chicago. He can overlook that, but Arianna has a tendency to take things into her hands when she feels threatened. His little firecracker needs to learn who really is the boss.

Loved this one, it has an unexpected twist that I had not expected. Love how Shane tries to reign Mouth in.

Beautiful Assassin
As Shane continues to try and reign in Arianna, he is finding his wife to be has a listening problem. Not only that she has a flair for killing people, his beautiful woman is a full blooded assassin. Like a strategic chess game, Shane has to use his wits to get Arianna to let him take care of her and their now baby to be. However she was crazy before she was pregnant, now he is not sure what to do with her.

Love, love, love this series. Anxiously waiting the next.
