Dangerous Currents


DANGEROUS CURRENTS by Katheryn Knight is a contemporary second chance romance with a suspense sub-plot. This book focuses more on the romance, past and present and the difficulties facing the H/h to get to their HEA than the suspense occurring in the...

Fangs & Fins


Vamps and mermaids? You don't see that every day. Ember's family has just doubled in size after her mother re-married, bringing Ember two new step-sisters. And she's just discovered that one of her new sisters is about to become her arch enemy. Well,...

Unidentified


UNIDENTIFIED is Anna Hackett's double romance within a novella, so make that 2 very short vignettes tucked neatly into a normal 'Hackett-sized' book. I'll admit that I have my doubts about the short length of each story, wondering how Ms. Hackett would...

Where I'll Find You


WHERE I'LL FIND YOU is a standalone novel about a young woman called Hadlee. Her life is full, with university studies, a job, living in shared accommodation, and a (very) un-supportive mother. The last thing she wants is a man in her life. However, Kaisen...

Cash Plays


CASH PLAYS is an outstanding third installment of a series that is delivering a great mystery plot, keeping the reader guessing and on the edge most of the time. It was a perfect mix of action, love and a serial killer who is taking justice in his hands. Levi...

Photographic Heart


PHOTOGRAPHIC HEART is the eighth book in the Ityu Lake series, and we have Brannon's story. He is the nephew of the two angelic aunts who have been featured in previous books. He has had his vision and knows he will meet his mate soon, and a rough idea...

Ripping Off the Mask

A Fine Line


There's a fine line between most things--right and wrong, pleasure and pain, laughter and crying, humor and sarcasm, dominance and submission--and in Sue Horsford's A FINE LINE, there are many and as you read, you might find yourself asking, "What would...

Lovers


Jealousy is a wicked bitch, especially in the polyamorous world. Bianca Castillo enjoys sex with her men Jamison and Adrian, but they have their own primary partners, and she's often left knowing she's second best. Bianca herself never really desired...

Queen Wolf

Holden's Regrets


HOLDEN'S REGRETS is story two in Diane Zparkki's Branson's Kind of Love Trilogy and picks up almost where FIXING SYDNEY (story 1) leaves off. Much like in story 1, this time, we get the backstory from Shannon as she's run off to get away from the humiliation...

#1 Lie


4 nose-growing stars for #1 LIE! One little lie. Just an itsy bitsy, teenie weenie little lie to her gran, and Jessica Dawson is screwed. When gran was on her death bed, Jess confirmed that she had a man so gran would be able to leave knowing her...

The Marrying Type


When you get more than you bargained for... Libby is in a pickle. She's dropped out of college with a plan to bring clean water to places in the world that need it most. It's an admirable endeavor and a challenging problem to solve, but she's sure...

Venomous Hunger


VENOMOUS HUNGER is the second book in the Eok Warriors series, but it can be read as a standalone. I would recommend you do read book one first, but only because you'd be missing on a great story if you don't. Aliena was one of the free humans living...

When Darkness Follows


WHEN DARKNESS FOLLOWS is the fourth book in the Beyond The Grave series, and we reunited with both TSI and Debunking Reality. Rachel has called Debunking Reality because of a murder-mystery that involves her. Unfortunately she can't remember what happened,...

Venomous Hunger


And, just like that, Aliena's "entire life became dependent on the trust she was putting in an alien pirate." If I were to venture a guess, I'd say that being bit by the mating bug, if unwanted, would be cause for annoyance. As a pirate, Kamal has...

Pas De Deux: A Dance For Two


PAS DE DEUX: A DANCE FOR TWO by Lynn Turner is a beautifully written contemporary romance. This new-to-me author took me on a journey behind a classic ballet company, the building of a new Broadway musical and two imperfect people finding each other....

PHATT Farm


PHATT FARM is a fast-paced, engaging read that is full of giggles and chemistry. Coming in at just over an hour's read time, it's perfect for a quick afternoon or bedtime tale. Eazy is a sexy, ex-military man working on the family farm while he figures...

Crossing the Line


Eli Cross has been pigeonholed into the role of slacker for years, even though his brothers have no clue what he does around Cross Creek Farm. When he makes a bet with a nemesis from another farm, his family is furious. As if they don't all work their...

Scion's Awakening


SCION'S AWAKENING is the third book in the Seven Seals series, and we meet Wyck, whom we were briefly introduced to at the end of Chago's book. He is the resident geek, and Scion to the Seal of the Apocalypse, who in traditional opposite style, is a scientist...

Secret Husband


It's now the twenty-second century, and things have changed a bit. Children are now living with their parents longer than ever, and arranged marriages are popular again. Also, mythological gods have taken an interest in what's happening on planet earth...

Tight Quarters


TIGHT QUARTERS is the sixth book in the Out of Uniform series, and if M/M Romance mixed in with a military scenario does it for you, then you really need to check out this series. In this book, we reunite with Bacon (and yep, that is his real name!)....

A Tiny Piece of Something Greater


A book that includes mental illness among its subject has always been one that has my utter attention. Unfortunately this one didn't quite make me fall in love with it, but I was very pleased with the way the subject was addressed, being not only an accurate...

Listen to Your Heart


Kasie West delivers another fun YA contemporary romance in LISTEN TO YOUR HEART. This time, our heroine Kate has been roped into being the cohost of a podcast. Though she didn't think she'd like it at the start, she grew into the role and she became more...

Aboard the Wishing Star


ABOARD THE WISHING STAR is a romantic suspense that is high on romance, and low on suspense, as it is clear from the very beginning who the 'big bad' is. Kara has won a week's cruise, and has taken her best friend for many years with her. It starts off...

Down Deep


To say that DOWN DEEP has got 'lasting power' makes it rather cringeworthy without the other kinds of innuendos that will probably come up here given the genre that I'm reviewing. Yet I've put book down and taken it up numerous times not because of boredom...

Venomous Craving


VENOMOUS CRAVING is the first book in the Eok Warriors series, and we are introduced to the whole world. Humans have been hunted to near-extinction and now live in 'protected facilities'. They are basically breeders, although a small group managed to...

Tight Quarters


It isn't very often that I venture into M/M romance and Annabeth Albert is an author who's new to me. That the Out of Uniform series has crossed my feed numerous times which I haven't yet taken up is just added incentive to get into a military romance...

Succubus Lips


SUCCUBUS LIPS is a reverse harem urban fantasy that features a favorite trope of mine: the do-gooding young and horny undercover team. Ah, the endless dance of good and evil and good knickers and evil knickers. The potential for lots of fun is there. Vigilante...

The Music Box


THE MUSIC BOX is a fairytale with an urban setting. It deals with sensitive subjects, such as dementia and work harassment. Gabrielle is spending her evenings with her mother in a care home, whilst during the day she is doing a job she doesn't like, with...

Delta: Ricochet


3 disappointedly dim stars for DELTA: RICOCHET. Colin Cole has worked his butt off to prove to the higher ups that he's more than just a diplomat's son. Now second in command at Delta, he's determined to make sure his team knows he got there on skill,...

Fixing Sydney


Diane Zparkki's FIXING SYDNEY was a bit of an emotional rollercoaster for me and one that I don't regret because it was a fabulous read. Chapter 1 opens with Sydney reminiscing about her life. We know that it's been three years since her high school prom...

I Think I Love You


I THINK I LOVE YOU feels like the true end to Lauren Layne's Oxford series, a not quite full-length tale of the last standing couple, who don't even know they're meant to be paired with...yet. Ms. Layne tackles the friends-to-lovers trope here and straightaway,...

Montana Marine


MONTANA MARINE by Debra Parmley is a contemporary romantic suspense novella set in the Brotherhood Protectors Kindle World. This novella is heavier on the suspense and intrigue plot while more on the sweet side romantically than other stories in the Brotherhood...
