Offered to the Cyborg


OFFERED TO THE CYBORG is the second book in the Cy-Con series, but can be read as a standalone. Shaylee was kidnapped from Earth, and has been used and passed around as a slave since then. Although she has had children, she has never found pleasure in...

Cyborg


In Anna Hackett's Gladiator universe, it feels as though anything is possible. And that much frees the narrative to range from far-flung sand-dune adventures to ancient Rome-type fighting for sport and commerce. With a stoic, near-emotionless cybernetically-enhanced...

The Sebastian Chronicles


I finished THE COMPLETE SEBASTIAN CHRONICLES with mixed feelings. I found Sebastian likable and his life as he travels through the centuries was interesting. He is a sexy as sin vampire with an insatiable sexual appetite, and the only thing he wants is...

Deserving It


5 big burly and Irish loving stars for DESERVING IT! Claire Hitchins has been crushing on Conor McDaid since she met him a few years ago. As captains of the Sarasota women's and men's hurling teams, respectively, the two are around each other a lot....

Making Up


I don't have much experience with reading Lucy Parker's books, but MAKING UP's enemies-to-lovers blurb drew me right in. I loved the chaotic opening that was full of sensory delights mixed with the drama that happens both onstage and offstage--that's...

Earl of Sunderland

Hooked On You


Kate Meader's writing is always one that I look out for. There's quirk, some humour and sometimes cheese, but it never fails to entertain. HOOKED ON YOU closes her Chicago Rebels series and having come fresh off the scorching push-pull relationship of...

Starry Eyes


Sometimes it takes a lot more cajoling to get me on the side of NA/YA fiction and I'll readily admit that much of it has to do with my increasing difficulty in connecting with characters that I probably would have vociferously sympathised with when I...

Bad Boys After Dark: Brett (Bad Billionaires After Dark Book 4)


BRETT is the fourth book in the Bad Boys After Dark series, but you can read it as a standalone (as I did), and you won't get lost. The other brothers play a big part in Brett's story, but not enough that you are lost with who is with who. Brett and Sophie...

Fast Justice


Finally, finally, finally. FAST JUSTICE reminds me of all the reasons why I read Kaylea Cross's books and having ploughed through the somewhat lacklustre stories from the previous stories in this series, having Rowan/Mal's tale kick my enthusiasm...

Meet Me in the Garden


Rosa Sophia's MEET ME IN THE GARDEN was an interesting read. I love the idea of past lives, soul mates destined to meet again and again throughout history. Memories of another life, and the garden where it all began, makes for interesting storytelling....

The Start of Something Good


I love a good a enemies-to-lovers story, and Jennifer Probst's throwing together of a wounded soldier and an uptight, prickly PR shark sounded like a read up my alley. As total opposites (at least on the surface), Ethan and Mia clash immediately. The...

Linda Gets Her Groove Thing


Butt plugs as cause of death are a much bigger problem in this world than in ours. I don't have the statistics to prove that butt-plug-related fatalities aren't a huge problem in our world. Maybe that story is out there waiting to be found. (Get on that,...

Sweet Sacrifice


WHAT HE DID FOR LOVE I'd received a MOBI.file copy of this book from the author as a giveaway during week 2 of this year's The Romance Reviews Anniversary Party and the following is my honest opinion. Finding a romance, a romance which is a HEA...

Squared Away (Out of Uniform #5)


SQUARED AWAY is the fifth book in the Out of Uniform series, but can be read as a standalone, as I did. However, I must say that now I have found out what an exceptional writer Annabeth Albert is, it won't be the last book of hers I read! Isaiah is...

Two Wedding Crashers


5 (but if I could give 20, I would) stars for TWO WEDDING CRASHERS! It's sheer happenstance that both California's Beck Wilder and Maine's Rylee Ryan's friends have invited them to Key West to crash their mutual friends' wedding, but there they are,...

Desperately Seeking Sixty-Nine


DESPERATELY SEEKING SIXTY-NINE is an unapologetically profane paranormal romance, and author J.D. Frettier makes no attempt to hide that this isn't Madame Bovary. For a start, Madame Bovary isn't anywhere near as much fun as DESPERATELY SEEKING SIXTY-NINE,...
