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...

The Downside of Love


After Rory Oaks broke things off with Colby Brooks so he wouldn't be tempted to stick around and lose out on his chance to fly for the Air Force, she was devastated. Rory will never leave Colorado Springs and her autistic brother Bryan, and a long distance...

Werewolves Only


Macey fell for... the leader of the pack... When Macey's current case leads her to a handsome and mysterious man, she isn't sure if she should follow her heart or her head. Luke seems to live a complicated life and Macey has her own hands full with...

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...

Edge Jump


EDGE JUMP starts off with the death of Brett's sister, who is also Rylan's skating partner. The police are treating it as an attempted mugging. Brett wants answers and hopes Rylan can provide at least some of them. When they meet up with each other again,...

VIOLET SOULS is the first book in The Evoxian Legacies, which tells us about violet-eyed aliens living amongst the humans here on Earth. Bree is one such alien, although she doesn't know it. She has always felt differently from the others, but never knew...

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...

Shenanigans


Funny and witty, Kandi Cain will bring a smile to a reader's face. Kandi's unfortunate first name is courtesy of her Christmas obsessed mother. Who names their child a stripper name? Luckily for Kandi, she is able to follow in her grandmother's footsteps...

Desperate Girls


DESPERATE GIRLS isn't a title I'd immediately associated with the blurb of the story and it became quite clear from the onset that the story is so much more than the rather irrelevant-sounding title. As a sort-of offshoot of Laura Griffin's Tracers series,...

Insatiable


Michelle Hazen's INSATIABLE was a powerful read and an emotional rollercoaster for me. While I was expecting the typical rock star romance, I didn't anticipate the level of turmoil and cathartic relief I had once I got to the end (yay for HEAs). Likes:...

Zoraida Grey and the Voodoo Queen


Zoraida Grey is back. The craziness continues now that she has left Scotland and is back in the US and on another mission for Granny. Shea has come back with her but Zhu, her bestie, is still in danger and under the care of her evil cousin Michael. Add...

Soul Infection


A new series with questionable magic and magicians, the Scholomance school of magic shows up again. For readers who have read Black Cat Security, they may remember this magic school which is not as nice Hogswart and not for children. Tristan Todorov is...

Haka Ever After


HAKA EVER AFTER is the final book in the Sin Bin series, and it goes out on a high. Taine wants to marry Freddie more than anything. He is even prepared to brave Freddie's fathers, which trust me, is a big thing. Read their full story. You'll see what...

Torment


TORMENT takes dark and twisted to a whole new level, and the intensity level is off the charts. The story picks up where Regret left off, and I mean that literally. From the first sentence, we're right in the middle of the jaw-dropping cliffy from the...

A Cowboy's Sweetheart


A COWBOY'S SWEETHEART (Rodeo Academy Book 1) by Crista McHugh is a YA contemporary romance. To be honest, I requested this book by mistake because I am not interested in YA books, but this author pulled me in with her writing, setting and characters....

Just Pretend


5 friends to lovers stars for JUST PRETEND! Broadway star Logan Lance has been half in love with his BFF Hannah Montgomery for years, but he's too afraid to mess up a good thing, not to mention the whole 'repressing his feelings' thing. When Hannah,...

One More Round


Hot, nerdy gamer? Check. Woman with a secret? Check. Childhood friends to lovers? Lovers to enemies? A second chance? And a happily ever after? Check times 4. Gia never forgot her first love, Simon, but when she had to leave suddenly, she never said...

Regret


Holy Moly! REGRET pulls out all the feels from the very beginning. I expected the story to be dark, but it's also incredibly intense from the heartbreaking prologue to the very last page. I don't think Bella J has left an emotion out of this one and...

Breaking The Rules


Travis Holt has been busy recovering from a UFC injury and is now ready to grab the title. His focus is on his busy gym and getting back into fighting shape. He's got plenty of rules to follow. In BREAKING THE RULES, author Ember Leigh adds temptation...

Gabe's Revenge


GABE'S REVENGE is the second book in the McLeod Security series, and to be honest, I was confused for 90% of the book where McLeod Security actually fell in this story, although it all became clear. Lissa is the daughter of Andrini, a small time crook...

Ruthless


Wow, this was an amazing story. I really enjoyed the interplay between the present and the past, giving us greater insight into both Rebel and Ginger. As MC stories go, this one was well-crafted and highly enjoyable. The premise as to how the couple first...

Desperate Girls


It's official. I want to be Laura Griffin when I grow up. Of all the authors that I've read who write romantic suspense, she's the best in getting that right balance of heartstopping suspense, edge of your seat action and spine tingling romance. While...
