Mafia Princess


I chose to read this book as mafia romances fascinate me. I love the fictional world of the organization and enjoy seeing the big bad men of the mafia brought to their knees by love. So I could not wait to read this book. The story began on a strong...

The Cabin (Close Proximity #2)


THE CABIN is the second book in the Close Proximity series, and we meet Flynn who has just been jilted at the altar, and Beau, an artist from LA with a reservation gone wrong. Flynn offers his couch for the night, due to the weather conditions and the...

Spirit Shattered


SPIRIT SHATTERED is the fourth book in The Guardians series. I have read book 1, Spirit Fall, but not books 2 and 3. I would say you don't HAVE to read them all, as the stories pretty much standalone. However, if you want more background snippets that...

Seaborn


SEABORN is the first in a new series, loosely linked to another series by the same author. In this story, we meet Charlie, or Lottie as she is known at that time. She is running for her life, away from an abusive ex. It is told in enough detail that your...

One Night With The Army Doc


ONE NIGHT WITH THE ARMY DOC by Traci Douglass is a medical contemporary romance which thoroughly entertains and leaves you with that HEA glow. It is easy to read with a hunky hero and a socially awkward, but brilliant heroine. Being set in Alaska also...

Bloodlines

Playing Her Secret Crush


PLAYING HER SECRET CRUSH is an enjoyable, swoonworthy contemporary teenage romance. I like that Katie decided to move on from Alex, since he wouldn't/didn't reciprocate her feelings, and that she had that date with Ben and the realization that even if...

Emergence


EMERGENCE is the second book in the Voodoo Butterfly series, and we start pretty much where we left off. Sophia and Taj are still together, although things aren't quite as smooth as they were. However, trouble isn't far away, and Poppy ends up being injured....

Imperator


IMPERATOR closes out Anna Hackett's Galactic Gladiators series, or at least it's the end...for now, until the next House gets its own story as a spin-off in the future. Opening straight from the end of the last book (best to read them in order at...

The Elevator (Close Proximity #1)


Adrian and Mr. Greyson Lee seem to have nothing in common, until a brownout left them stuck in an elevator. The forced proximity of the situation makes them realizes they might have been what the other has been needing. But when the power is up again...

Star Brides: The Meat Market


THE MEAT MARKET is the second book in the Star Brides series, but can be read as a standalone. It is actually a bit of a misnomer. I thought we would start off by 'seeing' the Meat Market, but no. Instead, we dive right into the story and only learn about...

Captivating Melody


CAPTIVATING MELODY is the first book in the Discord's Desire series, and it starts off with wollup! First of all, we are introduced to the band and their manager. We find out about each of them, and their differing personalities. We see the how's and...

Firestorm


Start a Rachel Grant book and it's a sure thing to surface only a few days later. It's that intricate, that complex and that impossible to breeze through because of the details and the twists and turns that slowly come into play despite the deceptively...

Spies, Lies, and Allies: A Love Story


SPIES, LIES, AND ALLIES is more than a teenage contemporary romance. It's also a novel about a father and daughter relationship, which is a first among all the YA romances I've read. I like how Laurel wants to develop her relationship with her father,...

Shaman's Seduction


SHAMAN'S SEDUCTION is a delightful collection of three short stories, all set in the world but at different times. We start off with Inaluck, who has worked hard to earn the respect of her father's warriors, and her place as Chieftain's Daughter. When...

Entropy


Qaelan Foster's latest outings with his cousin have been more misadventures than adventures and mostly of the dodgy variety. But then he gets entangled with the likes of Camille Blackstone, which brings a whole new meaning of trouble. But first, context...

The Elevator (Close Proximity #1)


THE ELEVATOR is the first in the Close Proximity series, which from the looks of this book, is going to be short and steamy reads! Adrian is a self-proclaimed geek, and works hard for a company that doesn't really appear to deserve him. Greyson is...

The Recruit


The line between life and death can be very thin when the decision is in the hands of a creature seeking for new recruits to serve its purpose. Albert is leading an organized group of vampires who are carefully looking for new people to join them. Filling...

Almost Gothic


Trusty Rusty comes with a dark unexpected past. He's the sweet and quiet secondary character in this series. Finally getting his and Eliza's story is a treat. I particularly enjoy femdom and this one is so good. For those who have not read other books...

Everything Under the Sun


Civilization has fallen, the world is not what it once was, and the struggle for survival is more than simply meeting your basic needs (food, shelter, clean water). It's about love, loss, finding your way, and coming home (finding safety) in a world ravaged...

The Cardinal's Whores


THE CARDINAL'S WHORES is the first book by this author I have read, and with the intriguing mix of fact and fiction she twisted into this story, she is definitely one on my watch list. Joan Larke is a young woman, living with her brother, and hopeful...

Classic Murder: Mr. Romance


CLASSIC MURDER: MR. ROMANCE by Mary Martinez is a fun contemporary romantic mystery. Even with a murder to be solved, the budding romance is humorous and entertaining. Adam Russo, a billionaire who enjoys saving worthy companies, is a philanthropist...

Chaos


I can't recall the number of iterations of the enhanced super-soldier I've gone through, but by now, it's probably a lot. The conspiracy, the theories, the villainous cold-blooded woman (this pops up too predictably), the tortured men and the paranormal...

Ravensdale


I finished this story a few days ago but having a bit of trouble writing this review because I haven't stopped giggling. RAVENSDALE is very much satire, and not only of historical romance. I winced more than a few times at some of the intended clichés...

Chasing Him


3 hot dad stars for CHASING HIM. John Bishop may not get as many women as his slutty playboy twin, but he's not doing too bad. But when a past lover dies and he's handed the infant he knew nothin' about, shit's about to get real...literally! John knows...

Double or Nothing


The way this pair of authors manage action is outstanding. I was unable to stop reading and I simply couldn't read fast enough. From the start to the end, DOUBLE OR NOTHING was an amazing experience. A perfect mix of action and love. Rich is part of...

BLAZE (a gargoyle shifter rockstar romance)


BLAZE: A GARGOYLE SHIFTER ROCKSTAR ROMANCE (Underground Encounters #6) by Lisa Carlisle is another great addition to the paranormal romance series based around VAMPS nightclub. These books are all romances, all have paranormal creatures and can be read...
