By the Book


What captured my attention initially is that BY THE BOOK is a retelling of Persuasion by Jane Austen. Now, my experience with Jane Austen retellings thus far wasn't good, because there wasn't much originality with the retellings and I got bored because...

Crashed on an Ice World


I got into this one with trepidation, not because of Anna Hackett's world-building--that one's flawless, imaginative and has a tendency to suck you in no matter what book series she's publishing at any time. The search for a Viking treasure trove on an...

THE REBEL - PART ONE by Marie Savio is an interesting story and I believe this is Ms. Savio's first publication, so massive bonus points for telling a great tale. As the summary indicates, Sara needs an outlet to alleviate stress and rather than reverting...

Jade Orchid Lovers


JADE ORCHID LOVERS is a sweet romance that blends humor, mystery, and romance exceptionally well. Sara and Mateo are wonderfully developed characters and you feel like you are with them every step of the way. Sara's fear is palpable and not over the top....

Relay


The simmering intensity of testosterone-laden competitive athletes and that crazy energy that they bring to it are what I particularly love about sports romances. Never having read M/M for olympic swimmers, RELAY quite literally had my eyes popping at...

The Submissive Muse


THE SUBMISSIVE MUSE by Tiffany N. York has me in a bit of an emotional jumble as I process the story. This story contains an undying love and an emotional bond that most people might only dream of. There's unrequited love. There's such a penetrating sense...

Roll With the Punches


When life throws curve balls, a person can be beaten to death by trying to stand up against the balls or they could bend and roll with the punches. This story follows Heartache Spoken Here and should be read only after reading it. Just reading these two...

Ballerina Dad


BALLERINA DAD is a lovely short Christmas story. It was really sweet and romantic. Patrick is a tough professional hockey player who would do anything for his daughter, including showing up in a tutu to her holiday dance recital. Her ballet instructor,...

Habitat for Human Remains


HABITAT FOR HUMAN REMAINS by Scott A. Lerner is a Samuel Roberts Thriller and my first story by this author. I absolutely loved it. Bob and Sam should be nicknamed the Abbott and Costello of the paranormal because their dialogue had me grinning the entire...

Rush


RUSH by C E Vescio is part romantic suspense and part ballet aficionado's fantasy. Alex Strong is a bodyguard who used to be a private military contractor. Now, his stepfather, who he feels animosity towards for once hurting his mother, has asked him...

Defenseless


DEFENSELESS started out with what I thought was info dumping about Georgia's life, but I'm glad I didn't give up because the story picked up when she met Parker at the end of Chapter One. Oooh, Parker!! Parker is a geek, and he's super brilliant, but...

The Induction of Satine


THE INDUCTION OF SATINE is a fast read and what I would qualify as a naughty nooner. Bit of fun reading to enjoy on your lunch break. Well, okay, maybe a work lunch isn't the best time to read this story, depends on where you work. At only about 5,000...

Dirty Filthy Fix


DIRTY, FILTHY FIX was certainly different from the usual romances that I read. It also didn't fit the description of a traditional romance, which is that once the main characters get together, they couldn't have any sexual relations with other people,...
