IMPERIAL STOUT is the first book in the Trouble Brewing series, which is a spin-off from Agents Irish and Whiskey. We jump straight into the action, both between the two main characters, Nic and Cam, and also with the job they are on. Things don't go...

The One You Fight For


The tragedy of Long Acre mirrors so much of the contemporary violence in schools but I've never read a romance series that details the lives of those who actually live on in the aftermath of it--and how a single, catastrophic event drastically alters...

Even if I Fall


I am seriously blown away with EVEN IF I FALL. Even as I was captivated to this page-turning book, a part of me didn't want to read too fast because I didn't want it to end so soon. Abigail Johnson tackled a difficult subject and she imbued her main characters...

Fall


Kristen Callihan's FALL was a poignant and touching story of two people shrouded in darkness and together they become each other's light. When Stella and John meet, sparks fly and Stella is ready to take him down. Why? Because John has his hand on the...

Leopard's Daughter


Take a hefty mix of crime and mix it with the paranormal and you have Stephen J. Tillman's LEOPARD'S DAUGHTER. The story jumps into the excitement quickly with Bobby and Olivia Sandar, Secret Service agents on presidential detail, which goes wrong leaving...

Shadow and Ice


Gena Showalter really impressed me with SHADOW AND ICE, the first book in her Gods of War series. I say this because I didn't much like her Lords of the Underworld series, and this just goes to prove that readers shouldn't write an author off based on...

Digging a Hole


There's always a bizarre lick to Mimi Jean Pamfiloff's stories that I can't seem to shake off each time I begin a book of hers. DIGGING A HOLE isn't too different, where in alternating chapters, the flashback story of a crazy-arse tycoon tries to kidnap...

Blue Motel Room

"House parties. Hot jocks. New friends. Typical college experiences, right?" For most college students, yes. "Sleepless nights. Racing thoughts. Slipping grades." Okay, maybe a bit less. "Drinking way too much and waking up alone in a strange bed with...

Nightchaser


Being a well-conditioned Star Wars fan, having a ragtag bunch of misfits playing Robin Hood, with its leader as the ultimate rebel sounds exactly like the sort of rogue space adventure I will always want to read. NIGHTCHASER is so different from Amanda...

Sergeant Sexypants


Bree Bracelyn doesn't date cops. Ever. At least, not until Sergeant Sexy Pants walks into her resort flashing his badge and making her think of all sorts of illegal activities. But there's a reason for her rule. Austin is not only a cop, he's squeaky...

Shadow's Dream - Kyn Kronicles Book 5


SHADOW'S DREAM is the fifth book in The Kyn Kronicles, and we reunite with two characters whom we already know--Cheveyo and Tala. Now, it is a while since I read this series, and it did take me a while to remember what was going on, or had gone on in...

Buried Lies


BURIED LIES continues Kaylea Cross's small-town romantic suspense series and it's quite a departure from her usual offerings of military romance thrillers in war-torn places and high-level conspiracy that I'm still not too sure what to make of it. Noah...

The Sheikh's Royal Seduction


When you think about romantic escapism that doesn't cost much and will keep you entertained for the afternoon, of course, the first thing you think of is a Leslie North book. Where else will you be guaranteed a bit of whimsical romance in a far off, exotic...

The Flight (Close Proximity #4)


THE FLIGHT is the fourth novella in the Close Proximity series. This time we meet up with Sebastian, a flight attendant, and Ethan, a musician. Now, you may think this is the normal rockstar romance, but it's not. This story is intricate in a way novellas...

Hidden Cargo


HIDDEN CARGO is a science fiction LGBTQ ménage steamy romance by author Sarah Marsh, the second in her Alien Captors series. It refers to book 1 in the series and teases book 3, but it is a standalone story that you can read on its own. And I think you...

Wet Kisses - A Zodiac Shifters Paranormal Romance


Having read books written by this author before I went into this story with great enthusiasm. I was optimistic about this one but it did not quite live up to my expectations. For me it was just an average read. It did not wow me as I had hoped. This...

WILDFIRE AND ROSES by Hope Malory is a sweet contemporary romance. This romance is about a hero and heroine who you know are perfect for each other, but they are established in their careers on opposite sides of the country. Beasley McLemore is driven...

You want this story. Seriously. If you've ever had any sort of conversation via text, then you want this story. While I'm at it, don't drink or eat anything while reading because you will spit it out as you laugh, which you will do. Much. So, much laughter....

At the heart of it, OUT OF TIME is one of assumed betrayal, even more assumptions that the protagonists have of each other and the elasticity of truth, all of which revolve around a botched mission, a missing SEAL team and questionable loyalties. Natalie...

Eye of the Eagle


I fell in love with this series after reading book 2, LEGACY of EVIL, and right when you think that Sharon Buchbinder couldn't do any better, she does. EYE OF THE EAGLE is an amazing continuation to this phenomenal family and I was so happy that Bert...

Whitsunday Dawn
