A fake relationship between them would draw the world's gaze to her winery and solve Aish's image problems. There's just one catch: She hates him. He broke her heart ten years when they were kids during a California harvest season. He regrets breaking her heart. She regrets ever giving it to...

BOOK REVIEWS
Revenge of the Brobot
| LGBTQ

Where are the rest of these Steam Room Stories Universe? I want to read them. This blurb looked too funny to pass up with guys calling their friends "bros" and a sex robot Rob. What kind of crazy shenanigans will happen? Quite a bit. Chase is a guy...

Roommate

Cold Cruel kiss

3.5 stars rounding up Intricately and expertly-crafted, COLD, CRUEL KISS is pretty much a masterful storytelling attempt by Toni Anderson, who dips into the spooks-world of conspiracies, underhanded, traitorous dealings and politics that all come to...

The Things We Leave Unfinished
| Contemporary Romance

3.5 stars rounding up... Of late, my experience with Rebecca Yarros had simply been one of brilliance. It's been pretty much this: engrossing storytelling that goes deep into the complexity of emotions; compelling circumstances in which Ms. Yarros's...

Love & Omens

Magnificent Manlove
| LGBTQ

Looking for sweet condensed bursts of erotic covering several different genres? Check out this collection of mm romance from Ms. Felthouse. Full disclosure, I didn't read the blurb which is probably what caused me to be confused after reading the first...

Prophecy of the Mayan Undead
| LGBTQ

PROPHECY OF THE MAYAN UNDEAD is most definitely a book of two halves. I won't go over the blurb again as it explains the story quite well. In the first half, Keisha and Yuri, along with their friends, Casimiro and Apolinar, are trying to stop a centuries-old...

Yes & I Love You
| Contemporary Romance

It takes a while getting used to Roni Loren's style of writing - effusive, word, sometimes overly dramatic - as YES & I LOVE YOU starts off with some deliberate (if imagined) flair of the painfully introverted Hollyn and the easy misunderstandings she...

To Sir With Love
| Contemporary Romance

3.5 stars... TO SIR, WITH LOVE is a nostalgic dose of an all-time favourite rom-com of mine - Nora Ephron's You've Got Mail - done with the storytelling bones of the movie, set in a somewhat similar context and written with the same light-hearted sprinkling...

Worth the Wait
| LGBTQ

WORTH THE WAIT is the second book in the Northwest Maine Academy series and we continue with the teachers and students plus the additional ones who help make the story interesting! Diego and Saoirse have a gap in their pack after John leaves to follow...

The Water of Life
| LGBTQ

Obscure, surreal and ahead of its time, WATER OF LIFE is definitely something different. From a uniqueness standpoint, this book receives a 4 star from me. From an overall writing and editing standpoint, it does drop down which averages to a 3 star. Katheryn...

Shift Happens
| Romantic Comedy

SHIFT HAPPENS is the second book in the New Orleans Nocturnes series and features Jane's best friend, Sophie, and Trace, a werewolf. Following on in the same lighthearted rom-com theme, we find out that Trace is a red wolf shifter and is searching...

A Dragon for Sale

Where Death Meets the Devil
| LGBTQ

WHERE DEATH MEETS THE DEVIL made me take a few deep breaths simply because of how brilliantly well-crafted and written it is--and that's on me for not discovering L.J. Hayward's fantastic start to a series that's got so much more going for it even after...

The Hunted Bride
| Erotic Romance

Jaye Peaches' THE HUNTED BRIDE is an entertaining read filled with aspects of a historical romance with a tad bit of the other worldly. Sort of. Starting with a bit of enemies-to-lovers, we meet Matilda (Tilda) and Gervais. Tilda is the apple of her father's...

A Casual Glance

Lion Her Ass Off

The second book in Blue Valley Shifters, LION HER ASS OFF, is a romantic, steamy read. Hector, Julie and Deacon are well delivered, and their interaction is engaging. I found myself engrossed in the dynamic story from beginning to end and would recommend...

Submitting to the Doctor

We are finally at book number seven of BJ Wane's very hot and steamy Cowboy Doms series. This is the book that I've been very impatiently waiting for. We finally get to Dr Mitchell Hofstetter's book. He's been mourning the loss of his wife for years,...

Taken by the Outlaw

Grab Six Months For Only $0.99!
Mona Sedrak has really hit the nail on the head with this pinnacle of dramatic fiction. The premise of the novel is incredible and exciting in itself, but the emotional journey which follows it is sure to suck readers in and take them along for a devastating but ultimately positive and heartwarming ride Reviewed By K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite
Gravity Is Only $0.99!
Gravity by Mona Sedrak a testament to the power of love, both romantic and family. It takes great strength and courage to step out of your comfort zone and love one another. Leila is one of the most courageous heroines I've had the pleasure to read. Mona Sedrak takes on a very personal story and opens the reader's eyes to the struggle many single mums face. Emotional narration, especially from the point of view of Leila, is raw, naked and sometimes painful to read but irresistible, nonetheless. The romance between Leila and Aiden is gradual and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. There's a lot of intense situations going on in Gravity but Mona Sedrak writes them with such poignancy, I loved it. One of the best books I've read this year. Highly recommend! N.N. Light
