Pretty Face


Lucy Parker's 'London Celebrities' is a rather unique series I think; there's nothing quite like what I've gone through in my years of reading romance and I do like the premise that each story is based on. Revolving around the tv or theatre scene and...

Sin For You


3.5 stars rounding up. Sherilee Gray tackles the brother's best friend trope with a grand helping of angst in SIN FOR YOU and it's a steamy one that pulls you in from the start. I definitely liked this one much better than the first in the series,...

Would Like to Meet


I love WOULD LIKE TO MEET! Engaging and captivating, this is one of my top reads for 2019. I literally couldn't put this book down. While it's pretty long--longer than usual--I finished this in two days (in between work). There are lots of things to love...

The Bookworm Crush


Romance with a capital R! Romance junkies shouldn't miss this. I love every minute of Amy and Todd's story. Amy is the bomb. She totally carries the entire story and it's a joy watching her grow to possess confidence in herself and her abilities. Of...

Marked Yours


MARKED YOURS is the first book in the Sentries series and it introduces us to a post-apocalyptic world where the rules have changed. Same-sex partnerships aren't seen as any different to any other kind of romantic or love partnership. What is different...

Trapped


TRAPPED is the first book in the Club Indigo series, and we meet Laura and James in a laundromat. James is a Dom who knows what he likes, and Laura is it. He knows she is a submissive, but she doesn't. Yes, she's read books about it, but that isn't real...

Post Plague Kidnapping


POST PLAGUE KIDNAPPING is an erotic post-apocalyptic story involving Leah, who has lived alone for the past five years and likes it that way, and James, who helped to build a colony where people can live in safety together. Now, obviously the title...

Desire's Destiny


DESIRE'S DESTINY is the first book in The Vespian Way series, and we are introduced to a world very different from Earth. They have their own customs and traditions, just like Earth does. Heather is assigned to the Ambassador as his bodyguard, but that...

Conspiracy of Ravens


CONSPIRACY OF RAVENS is the first book in the Raven Crawford series, and we meet Raven who is half-Fae and half-shifter. She is living on a knife's edge financially due to her ex-boyfriend and is too proud to ask for help. Instead, she gives up on her...

Taming My Whiskey

Love Her or Lose Her


It isn't often that you get a romance about a decade-long married couple whose relationship has gone stale and dry, where the HEA is one where the fairytale is reiterated rather than newly formed. There's a bit more of a ring of maturity to such kind...

Fighting Absolution


FIGHTING ABSOLUTION is not quite a conventional romance, so that's best to get that out of the way at the start. For those who are used to the establishing scene of the protagonists following a particular trope they are familiar with, this tosses all...

Shifter Planet: The Return


SHIFTER PLANET: THE RETURN plunges us back to a future where a long-isolated earth-colony comes under scrutiny by Earthers once again, and with it, its closely-guarded secrets that threaten to come to light. Ifve a soft spot for this series ever since...

The Night House


THE NIGHT HOUSE is a standalone post-apocalyptic fantasy romance that seamlessly blends medieval knights and sword-play from a different planet with current day earth. This was a fantastic read, ticking most of my boxes. Thane and Taya have sparks...

Crimson Roses


CRIMSON ROSES is a romantic murder mystery suspense story about a young Veterinarian and those close to her who start dying. Pepper had a traumatic event in her past that she has tried to put behind her. She has moved back closer to home and is a partner...

Dark One's Mistress


DARK ONE'S MISTRESS is the first book in the Dark One's Trilogy, and we start with Clara being in the wrong place at the wrong time. She lives in a village called Everdark and rumours abound that the Great Lord has died, and his heir now rules. If this...

The One For You


Following the characters of a fictional town that still bears the scars of a school shooting over a decade ago has put Roni Loren on my radar. Four books into the series, Ms. Loren still tells powerful stories of what it means to grieve, to nurture memories...

Orientation


3.5 stars rounding up.... It isn't often that I delve into M/M stories, but ORIENTATION--strictly not quite a romance as yet--is making me rethink my choices. Gritty, oh-so-angsty and so well-put out, Gregory Ashe outlines 2 beguiling best-friends-protagonists...

Between Me & You


Where writing is concerned, Kimberly Kincaid barely puts a foot wrong. Admittedly, there are some plots and characters that are obviously more palatable than others but a confident, driving style is what Ms. Kincaid has in spades. That alone has so much...

Succubus Soul: Veras Academy


SUCCUBUS SOUL: VERAS ACADEMY is the third book in the Succubus Sirens series, and we meet Bry, along with Derek, Zeke, Rio, and Trey. Three of the men are princes, and one is her best friend. This was an easy read, with most of the drama coming from...

Wolf Rebel


With a rapidly growing menagerie of paranormal creatures injecting new life into the SWAT series, WOLF REBEL is a fun and campy, enemies-to-lovers with a twist story as Paige Tyler ups the ante here with more than just repetitive storylines of werewolves...

Ghost of a Chance


GHOST OF A CHANCE is the second book in the Redclaw Security series, and I was delighted to get the opportunity to read it. Sarah starts off a bit dubiously but don't worry. She comes into her own. She just needs to figure things out first. Casey is...

Undercover Twin


While UNDERCOVER TWIN leads the readers on an exciting adventure into the inner workings of the mob/exclusive club of villains, the writing is somewhat amateurish. Audrey, the heroine, is described to be a brilliant scientist, and she is at that with...

Rescued by a Mountain Man


A sexy read, RESCUED BY A MOUNTAIN MAN is a short story with likeable characters and a steamy storyline. A good in between read if you are looking for some hotness.

Submitting to Two Doms


BJ Wane has done it again! Her hot and lusty cowboy doms are back, and this time we get two of them! In the fifth book of her wildly popular Cowboy Doms series, BJ has long been a favorite author of mine, especially since her Virginia Doms series. This...

Bishop Takes Knight


BISHOP TAKES KNIGHT is the first book in the Redclaw Origins series. Now, I have read two books of the Redclaw Security series, and thoroughly enjoyed them. So I was intrigued by the thought of going back to see where it all began. I was NOT disappointed. This...

Promise of Darkness


Bec McMaster's PROMISE OF DARKNESS was an amazing read. Her world building and storytelling were instantly engaging and well before Thiago and Vi finally "join", I was already rooting for their success. Likes: As this is book 1 in her new series Dark...

Witching Hour Madness


Continuing the mystery that surrounds Meredith and Malcolm, WITCHING HOUR MADNESS is an enticing read. I have enjoyed the development of this series and it characters and found this an enjoyable story.

Shifter Planet


I began this book a while ago, then left it by the wayside because it was difficult to get into the action immediately. Picking it up months later and soldiering on with more patience, SHIFTER PLANET turned out to be a rewarding and imaginative read that...

Bringing Down The Duke


Historical romances I read lately tend to blend into one another, even ones by favorite authors. Hence, reading BRINGING DOWN THE DUKE is a refreshing change, and this can be attributed to the author's engaging writing style and beautiful prose. The setting--Victorian...

For Fox Sake


FOR FOX SAKE is the first book in Fetish Alley, however this series is a spinoff of the Men of London. I didn't know this when I started reading this story and although I enjoyed this suspenseful, sexy story, I would have been more engaged if I had read...

Pure Dumb Luck


PURE DUMB LUCK is a fast-paced, easy friends to lovers romance. Eddie and Woody have been friends since their school days, and the attraction between them has been there just as long. Once they win the lottery, they find the freedom to act on that attraction,...

Arctic Heat


There's something I find compelling about Annabeth Albert's Frozen Hearts series, but perhaps it's the wilds of Alaska and the odd, accompanying sense of adventure and danger so far north that pull me in. Here, the urban-suave ex-investment banker and...

Dine With me


DINE WITH ME is as much as a tribute to food as it is to romance: two weeks with an ailing celebrity chef (his self-imposed last rites, so to speak) and a foodie doctor on the verge of a career shift. Layla Reyne takes a different direction with DINE...

Arctic Heat


ARCTIC HEAT is the third book in the Frozen Hearts series, and although we stay in Alaska, we see a very different side of it. There is less emphasis placed on the beauty of the region, and more on the natural dangers that exist every winter. In this...

Lord of the Last Heartbeat


LORD OF THE LAST HEARTBEAT is the first book in the Sacred Dark series, and we focus on Mio and Rhodry. Both of these have secrets and 'powers' that have an effect on their lives. Mio no longer wants to 'help' his mother, but can't see a way out. Rhodry...

Broken News: M/M Mafia Romance


BROKEN NEWS is a suspenseful M/M romance, with twists and turns that kept me on the edge of my seat. Characters who aren't quite what they seem, an engaging story line and a world where some never dare to tread. Overall, a really good read and one I would...

Good Guy


GOOD GUY combines forbidden attraction, hockey and a reporter desperately using anything she can to get a scoop on the latest (and oldest) rookie's life, with a little bit of a twist. But Kate Meader is a near-auto read for me most of the time and this...

Search and Destroy


In SEARCH AND DESTROY, Julie Rowe amps it up with a serious but sudden outbreak of measles, the mobilisation and the rush to contain yet another outbreak. In a straight, unapologetic continuation from the previous book (those who haven't yet might find...
