by Angelina M. Lopez | Interview

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
Heartless
| Paranormal Romance

There is a reason why Kaysar is called the "Unhinged One". He truly is unhinged. There is a growing popularity of creating anti-heroes as the main love interest. I like this because I am older and more jaded, I tend to like the more complex male who isn't...

We Can't Keep Meeting Like This
| Contemporary Romance

WE CAN'T KEEP MEETING LIKE THIS seems to fit more into the coming-of-age sort of book, as Quinn Berkowitz stars off by finding herself at a crossroads between doing what her family has always expected her to do (be in the wedding-planning business) or...

Uncharted
| Contemporary Romance

3.5 stars UNCHARTED was the book I was chomping at the bits to read ever since I finished Whiteout--a brilliant run-for-your-life-and survive (in the extreme cold) type of story. Much like its predecessor, UNCHARTED is written in the same vein where...

This May End Badly
| Contemporary Romance

THIS MAY END BADLY, despite the title, is a fun book with the all-out prank war. It's a tradition for the Weston girls and the Winfield boys (whose boarding schools are just across the road from each other) to one-up each other on pranks. All those hormones......

The Final Dawn
| Romantic Science Fiction/Futuristic

3.5 stars rounding up... As much as I've been following Jess Anastasi's Atrophy series, THE FINAL DAWN is far from a standalone and having read the previous Atrophy books a long time ago, catching up without having a re-read of the previous instalments...

Northern Escape
| Contemporary Romance

3.5 stars If the Alaskan wilderness and the legendary Iditarod race and the idea of sledding across the miles of untouched land are long-standing points of fascination, then Tonya Burrows's NORTHERN RESCUE--built around the reluctant reunion of three...

The Fixer
| Erotic Romance

Book Two in the Chicago Bratva series picks up where the first book ends by focusing on Maxim and his "unwilling" bride. This technically can be read as a standalone but it is recommended to read the first book for a better understanding of this world....

The Long Night
| Erotic Romance

Hiding in plain sight is the best way to go in this modern age. Lailah slips into her neighbour's Halloween bash as herself...a vampire. When she plays up her vampy costume, she catches the eye of not one, not two, but THREE men. Luckily they are all...

A Royal Disaster
| Contemporary Romance

A ROYAL DISASTER is a fun, laugh-out-loud romantic comedy. Elena hadn't the best luck, with Murphy's Law in full working order. Her business was failing, her ex was suing her, and goodness, she just poured paint over a much-loved and celebrated royal....

The Love Hypothesis
| Contemporary Romance

THE LOVE HYPOTHESIS is a really delightful one. And I'd thought that this would be a 5-star read throughout from the start when the fake-dating trope takes off under somewhat unusual circumstances. Done in the sole context of academia (surly, hot professor...

The Engagement Arrangement
| Contemporary Romance

THE ENGAGEMENT ARRANGEMENT is a feel-good, heartwarming romance that lit a bright spot in an otherwise dismal few months. Brenna took some getting used to--she was a bit prickly, in my opinion, especially toward Finn sometimes--but over the course...

When a Wolf Howls
| LGBTQ

Saoirse McColl is a research biologist who has been fired again. She sees herself as having bad luck but the number of things that fall into her lap tells a different story. This is an intriguing story about Pack life and what happens when you get...

Fighting the Fire
| Contemporary Romance

3.5 stars FIGHTING THE FIRE is the book that I've been waiting for for ages, though I'd probably call it the crowning glory of Laura Kaye's achievement these past few years after reading the author's post-story notes. Sean Riddick and Dani England...

The Accidental Alphas
| LGBTQ

THE ACCIDENTAL ALPHAS is the first book in the Omega Sanctuary Graduates series, and the reader is introduced to a world hit by a pandemic, where omegas go to Sanctuaries for the sake of their very lives. Some use the opportunity to meet their mates,...

| LGBTQ

King of Blades is the fourth book in the Two Thrones series and we return to Matthias and Danaë. She is well into her pregnancy with twins and has her own concerns which she hides from Matthias. He brings friends along with him on his 'Royal Visit' but...

Roommate
| LGBTQ

3.5 stars Sarina Bowen's Shipley family and their extended kin take centre stage once again as they do in all her True North books, growing larger and larger (and more nuanced) with each iteration of her offerings. But I think perseverance is key to...

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...

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...

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...

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...

A Dragon for Sale
| LGBTQ

A DRAGON FOR SALE is a magical realism standalone (as far as I can tell) set in Wales. Dylan is in the Dragon Guard, a once proud and strong regiment that is slowly being forgotten. The romance/steam side of things plays second fiddle to the mystery...

Only One Man Will Do
| Erotic Romance

ONLY ONE MAN WILL DO is the second book in the Minnesota Romances series and this time we follow Dmitri and Alexandra. Alexandra is the red-haired biker queen who was after Raul in book one. Dmitri is Ivan's cousin who went to tell her it was a bad...

FOR THE LOVE OF HIS LIFE is the first book in the Minnesota Romance series. Raul is a drugged-up manwhore actor who is sent to the Resort in an attempt to keep him out of trouble before the film starts. Veronica works at the Resort helping out her Gram-Marie...

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 Valentine for Chelsea
| Erotic Romance

A VALENTINE FOR CHELSEA is a standalone novella and also a companion to Jennifer's Christmas Daddy. You don't have to have read that one but it does mention characters that are in it. Plus, you get the chance to read another great book by Raisa Greywood. Chelsea...

A Casual Glance
| Erotic Romance

A CASUAL GLANCE is a contemporary erotic romance by Celeste Prater. I have loved her Fueled by Lust and Three Divisions series, but this one I struggled with a little bit. It is fast-paced, starting off in a club and moving swiftly on from there. Within...

Appreciated
| Erotic Romance

APPRECIATED is the third book in the Club Indigo series and let me tell you, this series just keeps on getting better! We have met Paula before as she is friends with Laura (from book 1). Even though she knows Laura, she still has a distorted view...

Submitting to the Doctor
| Erotic Romance

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,...

Lion Her Ass Off
| Erotic Romance

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...
