Appreciated


APPRECIATED is the third book in the Club Indigo series and let me tell you, this series just keeps on getting better! We have met Paula before as she is friends with Laura (from book 1). Even though she knows Laura, she still has a distorted view...

A Casual Glance


A CASUAL GLANCE is a contemporary erotic romance by Celeste Prater. I have loved her Fueled by Lust and Three Divisions series, but this one I struggled with a little bit. It is fast-paced, starting off in a club and moving swiftly on from there. Within...

The Flatshare


Beth O'Leary has come up with something unique in THE FLATSHARE. Here we see Tiffy and Leon sharing a flat in the non-traditional sense; she gets the flat in the evening while he goes to work as a night palliative care nurse, and he gets the flat in the...

Unattainable


Jamie Schlosser's UNATTAINABLE is an easy read, while looking like it's custom-written for disgruntled readers who have at some point in time or other, found fault with the lack of grovelling, with gendered double-standards especially during separations...

Violet Spirit


VIOLET SPIRIT is the second book in The Evoxian Legacies and we return to Lexie and Drew. Lexie is feeling stifled in the home she loves and longs to get out into the world. Everyone else is busy telling her how it is too dangerous. Drew is feeling the...

The Winter Companion


Neville Cross and his three friends, Justin, Tom, and Alex, were raised together at the orphanage in Devon, becoming as close as brothers. Their adventures often took them to the dangerous cliffs, where they fearlessly played--until one day, when Neville...

Bishop's Endgame


When it turns out that the mafia princess that Ellis Bishop has kidnapped was really just an elementary school teacher, clearing his tainted name becomes a lot more interesting and exciting. BISHOP'S ENDGAME is classic Katie Reus at her suspense-storytelling...

ALIENS, SMITH AND JONES is the first book in The Primrose Files and we meet Connor Smith. He is in his early twenties, working as a PA for a company that has a multitude of different names and goes out chasing aliens. He is single to start with but then...

Love Lettering


"I would say I like you so much, Meg." Swoon, swoon, swoon! Or would that be swoonsh? Reid may not be a natural conversationalist, but he's got the best lines. I love his letters and that scene at the bar. Through Meg's eyes, we see just what kind...

Lion Her Ass Off


The second book in Blue Valley Shifters, LION HER ASS OFF, is a romantic, steamy read. Hector, Julie and Deacon are well delivered, and their interaction is engaging. I found myself engrossed in the dynamic story from beginning to end and would recommend...

Submitting to the Doctor


We are finally at book number seven of BJ Wane's very hot and steamy Cowboy Doms series. This is the book that I've been very impatiently waiting for. We finally get to Dr Mitchell Hofstetter's book. He's been mourning the loss of his wife for years,...

Her Deadly Secrets


Action-packed and mesmerizing, HER DEADLY SECRETS held me in its thrall from the first to the last page. Kira Vance is a brave heroine. For all her PI work, she's new to the murder scene and I find her reactions realistic, especially her PTSD. While...

Chained Hearts


CHAINED HEARTS is the third book in the Sentries series, and really, I have no idea how poor Nick gets through each day. He has had so much thrown at him and it's not over yet. Nick is suffering from PTSD following the attack by the Kelbit. Todd is...

A Barlow Lens


A BARLOW LENS is the second book in the Circles series and we continue with Wyatt and Val as they try to solve a mystery from a time-gone-by. I LOVED THIS STORY! I really enjoyed reading about the historical side of things, and how Tom and Philip managed...

Taken by the Outlaw


TAKEN BY THE OUTLAW is a well-paced, intriguing read. The story is short, steamy and entertaining, and the characters are likeable and their interaction engaging. I will read more by this new-to-me author.

Girl Gone Viral


When Katrina King's visit to a cafe results in a narrative spinning out of control thanks to a fame-hungry stranger, her sudden viral fame threatens her ordered, routined life and pushes her friend/bodyguard of many years to hide her away at his family...

You Deserve Each Other


3.5 stars rounding up... What happens when the first flush of lust and attraction peters out in the months following the heady romantic dating period...and worse yet, when the wedding is approaching and someone's getting more than just cold feet? Where...

Almost Just Friends


The author delivered a realistic view of complex family dynamics. While reading this, I experienced an incredible mix of emotions. I loved the (non)relationship between siblings Piper, Gavin, and Winnie - and even Camden and his father, Emmitt. Emmitt...

Ghost of a Chance


These two are explosive together. James Smith is dangerously sexy...the author blended all my favorite elements into a single character .- "Possessive. Protective. Primitive." And I love that Tess can make him lose control. Tess's mouth has no filter...

Lust Unleashed


Jonah Grey and Dakota Furcal kick off the Night Seeker series, in this scorching hot romance. The author explained their solidarity lifestyles, through well-written backstories. I was very intrigued by the Chupacaba folklore and looking forward to reading...

Star-Crossed


I started reading this immediately following Defying The Odd, Battered Hearts, #1. I was apprehensive at first, the main characters are actually named Romeo and Juliet. Initially, I thought I've experienced this story line too many times; do I really...

Defying the Odds


This is my first Kele Moon story. There is an undercurrent of drama in their lives, Melody's abusive ex-husband and Clay's career. However, Clay and Melody are able to fall in love without the typical melodrama, a sweet love story. Do not misunderstand...

Nevermore


NEVERMORE is the second book in the Raven Crawford series and we return to Raven as she is still adjusting to what happened at the end of book 1 and the death of the Corvid Queen. I say that some of the instances in this book are not a surprise, but...

Love Lettering


If I'd initially thought there was something paranormal in the blurb, I could probably be forgiven for thinking that--Kate Clayborn's LOVE LETTERING is intriguing just from the summary of its story and in contrast to what I thought, is founded on the...

Heart Bandit


HEART BANDIT is the first book in the Gargoyle Night Guardians series, and we start off with Beaumont, who has been a Gargoyle for over 800 years. We find a new world of evil fae, the Critch, dubious souls, and an unwillingness to give in. Sadie does...

Matching Bloodlines


MATCHING BLOODLINES is the third book in The Princeton Allegiant series, and trust me when I say this series just keeps on getting better and better! Although I would say you "could" read this as a standalone, the better question would be "why?" At...

Cross Her Heart


Melinda Leigh's an old hand at this by now--writing taut and tight thrillers, I mean. With cleverly plotted, smartly-paced narratives that scarcely let you blink, the new Bree Taggert series--following the Morgan Dane one which I loved--is promising to...

Trusted


TRUSTED is the second book in the Club Indigo series, and this time we focus on Suzie, Laura's sister, and Captain Connor. Although Suzie was horrified when she saw Laura's cuff marks on her wrists, it turns out that Suzie likes the sharp edge of pain! This...

Divine Challenges


DIVINE CHALLENGES is the second book in the Rise of Stria trilogy, and we return to Evainne and Kahl as they try to figure out... well, everything, really. Their relationship is still early days but it's amazing how fast something moves when your life...

Every Kiss


A sweet, heartwarming start to Music, Love and Other Miseries. The characters were believable and engaging, the story was well delivered and alluring. A thoroughly enjoyable read and one I recommend.

Dangerous Decisions


DANGEROUS DECISIONS is the third book in the Obsidian Flame series and although we continue with the overall story arc, this one has Hank and Misha on prominent display. Hank has been keeping a secret from Lara and so, as it turns out, has Misha. Both...

Earl of Scarborough


Ansley Twistleton, Earl of Scarborough, is a socially awkward man, who mostly keeps to himself. He has a routine which he adheres to like clockwork - any deviation causes him anxiety. Today we'd call his condition obsessive compulsive disorder. Despite...

Seaside Serenade (Seaside Summers Book 9)


Wow! Another amazing hit by Melissa Foster. This is a quick read. Just 75 pages. But inside of those pages, Ms. Foster packs it full of amazing characters, wonderful story line and lots of amazing goodness! I have been her fan for sometime so I always...

Run for the Roses


RUN FOR THE ROSES is the first book in the Circles series, and it is a much lighter storyline than some of her other books. There is also a hefty dollop of mystery in here for good measure. Val and Janelle are best buddies, bonding over their past...

Eyes Wide Open


Sweet coming of age story, Fiona is trying to figure out what to do with her life. She's wanted to work in the "big city" London. She's just getting by with her bar job. Already stuck in a rut with a degree that appears to be useless, will she end up...

Together Bound


TOGETHER BOUND is the second book in the Sentries series and we continue with Todd and Nicky's story. I would definitely recommend reading this as a series as we deal with the same characters in the same world and if you don't, then this may not make...

Submitting to the Cattleman


BJ Wane's highly anticipated sixth addition to her Cowboy Doms series has hit the shelves today, and SUBMITTING TO THE CATTLEMAN is a holiday treat that was totally worth waiting for. What I enjoy about BJ's books is that I'm able to submerse myself into...

Hate Crush


The bully-love-hate-teacher-forbidden mega trope romance is a not-so-secret catnip of mine, so HATE CRUSH seemed like a good idea at the time. And to be fair, I did have an idea of what this was going to be and there were no illusions (at least, not too...

Tweet Cute


3.5 stars rounding up... What happens when teens take over a Twitter war, for the sake of protecting their own families' legacies? TWEET CUTE is the hypothetical answer, it seems, in a very, very updated version of You've Got Mail where 'enemies' in...
