Our Gravity


Ever read a book and think it is going to go one way and then it switches on you? In OUR GRAVITY, the book blurb gives a glimpse into how it will turn out, and yet it is still a shock. This book may be later in the series but it can still be read as a...

Don't Look at Me


Deal with it. Get over it. Move on. Have surgery. Take these pills. It's amazing the expectations that can be thrown at someone who has been on the receiving end of a traumatic event and the utter lack of support that can occur. To be fair, most people...

To Discover a Divine

Threat of Danger


With Dana Marton, each book is radically different: characters, histories and backstories, all of it and it's this kind of unpredictability that makes her a compelling writer. In fact, THREAT OF DANGER is nothing like its predecessor (save the good writing),...

The Lieutenants' Online Love


I got a copy of this book to read after reading the review here by Avonna Loves Genre and because, hello, "online". I love anything computer-related. :) So, I dug into this book eagerly, and we open with Chloe writing to her online friend, on the verge...

Dangerously Dark


DANGEROUSLY DARK is the third book in The Dreamcaster series, and I would recommend you read the first two books prior to this one. Although we don't hear from the 'older' characters until the latter part of the book, you will still need to have some...

Melt For You


Starting MELT FOR YOU was quite an apprehensive step to take, I'll readily admit. Considering that I loved the spunk and the unexpected but fun retelling of Beauty and the Beast in J.T. Geissinger's first book in this series (which made me request...

When a Duke Pursues a Lady

4 star-crossed stars for JUSTIFY ME. When McKay-Taggart operative Riley Blade finds out his old friend, personal assistant Natasha Black, has a stalker, there's no way he's going to let someone else take the case. Riley has wanted Natasha for years,...

In an Army Ranger's Arms


I'm totally in love with Donna Michaels' Men of At Ease Ranch series. IN AN ARMY RANGER'S ARMS is my second book, but it is every bit as funny and sexy and romantic as the first one I'd read, which is the 4th book in the series, Army Ranger with Benefits....

Off Base


OFF BASE is the first book in the Out of Uniform series. I double-checked the synopsis as it didn't feel like the first book, only to see it was a spin-off from the #Gaymers series! Now I have another series to catch up on ;) Zack is an all-macho good...

Close Cover: A Masters and Mercenaries Novel


5 gator and gumbo stars for CLOSE COVER! Remy Guidry loves the perks that come with working as a bodyguard for McKay-Taggart, especially the access to the private BDSM club Sanctum. But the one sub he wants is the one he won't let himself have:...

Scandalous in a Kilt

Burning Up


If there's anything to be expected of Jennifer Blackwood's writing, it's the hefty dose of humour inserted in straight from the start, or at least it's what I've come to associate Ms. Blackwood with. BURNING UP began with a woman on the outs and her...

Beautifully Burned


BEAUTIFULLY BURNED is the second book in The Dreamcaster series, and we reunite with Dax. He still has his bond with Kalila, but is fed up of Black's attempts to kill him, and get rid of the bond. Mel has a vision which sends him to Ella's side, but he...

Breaking the Rules of Revenge


BREAKING THE RULES OF REVENGE started out well with the introduction to Mallory and her twin sister, the difference in their personalities as well as how Mallory got sent to Camp Pine Ridge instead of Blake. The book placed us right in the middle of the...

Taboo Frequency


TABOO FREQUENCY took me by surprise in a couple of ways. First, given its length, I was surprised to find that the romance is not insta-love. The story takes place over months and the love blooms little by little. My second surprise came early in the...

Mornings on Main


Reading a nook by author Jodi Thomas is like curling up with a warm cup of coffee, snuggled up in a favorite blanket. With MORNINGS ON MAIN, Ms. Thomas creates a new cast of Texas characters sure to create a lasting impact. What happens when a woman...

Her Keeper


This one is something of a mixed bag of tropes in the romance genre. We have a bit of an enemies to lovers story with Rick and Sara going toe to toe over a grudge, which leads to the romantic comedy elements with the witty banter and chuckle-worthy situations....

Magic Flame (Enchanted Book 3)


ALL GOOD THINGS COME IN THREES According to Wikipedia there's a connection between the number "3" and writing: "The rule of three is a writing principle that suggests that a trio of events or characters is more humorous, satisfying, or effective...

Stripped


Tara Wyatt's newest law enforcement series sounded like the kind of romantic suspense I wanted to dig my heels into and STRIPPED--in more ways than one--is the introduction to a trio of detectives seeking to avenge the death of their friend, while finding...
