Truly, Madly, Whiskey


TRULY, MADLY, WHISKEY is the second book in The Whiskeys series, and we get Bear's story. Now, as you might assume by his name, Bear is growly, big, and very protective. He fell for Crystal eight months ago, and has been pursuing her ever since. Now if...

Bentley


3 rigid stars + 2 boho stars + 1 whaaaa? stars = 5 fabulous bright ones for BENTLEY! Bentley Ridge has worked his ass off to make his company BAM a success, and he has little time for fun. Often described as uptight and boring by women he dates, he...

Saved by her Vampires


Life is always simpler in fairy tales. Good trumps bad; and there's always a happy ever after. Unfortunately, real life would never mimic a fairy tale, especially for Bianca. Having suffered through so many years of painful physical therapy to learn to...

Watching You


WATCHING YOU reads like the establishing book of a series that it is: there's a big back story kept under lock and key for ages, loose hanging threads that don't necessarily come together, multiple POVs that aren't confined to the male/female protagonists...

Ear Candy: Three Short Stories in All-Dialogue Format


This book made me feel as if I'd been eavesdropping on my next-door neighbors or on the couple in the hotel/motel room next to mine, through a hidden microphone I'd concealed there. With merely the dialogue available, my mind ran wild envisioning how...

Barefoot Bay: Something New (Kindle Worlds Novella)

True to You


Sometimes book covers can be deceiving, which do a great disservice to the stories in them. What looks like a cowboy romance is in fact, a romantic suspense (yay for me) novel that I would have missed out if I hadn't taken the time to pick the blurb apart....

Marriage with a Proper Stranger

Her Best Friend's Husband


HER BEST FRIEND'S HUSBAND is an inter-racial, M/M/F short story by super storyteller Doris O'Connor. I'm always on tenterhooks waiting for Doris to come out with a new story, and every time, it's worth the wait! Wedding planner Naomi is stuck in the...

Flash of Fury


FLASH OF FURY is a fascinating, high-octane romantic suspense. Just when I thought the characters would get a breather (and finally act on their chemistry!), another bomb explodes or an RPG (rocket-propelled grenade) is sent through their hotel room....

Undone by You


A 12-year-age gap between a closeted player and an openly-gay manager along with the implications of a relationship that's probably forbidden and mostly likely to be massacred by the press and the public? The odds seem unsurmountable. That Cade and Dante...

Enslaving Dana

Bones Don't Lie


Melinda Leigh's Morgan Dane books are always gripping and suspenseful, locking you down with a twisty case and protagonists who work together so well that you can't help but love them. I've enjoyed every one of those as much as I loved Morgan and Lance,...

Waiting For a Rogue Like You


After an evening of drinking, former soldier Nicholas Drake has just decided to spend the rest of the night with not one, but two, local working girls. The rainy weather always makes the former soldier antsy and edgy, and the liquor and women will help...

Rahab's Domination


Ravenna Tate continues her Demons on Wheels MC series with VP Rahab's story and lawyer Liz Chavez, who Rahab meets at the door when she brings mobster Donny a contract to look over. Rahab decides pretty quickly that he wants Liz, and when Sonny lets her...

Protected


What I like so much about Romantic Suspense sub-genre is the blend of heart-pounding action and steamy romance (sometimes with a little mystery written into it) and when written well, provides a bum-clenching, fuck-the-world kind of escape that almost...

The Spitting Post


Vincent Carpenter isn't having a good day. It's the weekend and he forgot to turn off his alarm. When he rolls out of bed, he's surprised to see that his wife, Erika, isn't there. When he does find her, he mentions the dinner reservations he'd made for...

The Tea Master and the Detective


THE TEA MASTER AND THE DETECTIVE is a strangely compelling tale. Though I don't read much science fiction and a non-romance at that, I found myself turning the pages as I tried to solve the mystery of Long Chau together with The Shadow's Child. A short...

Running the Risk


How do you love a woman who has, supposedly, for the greater good, betrayed you? A woman whom you've thought dead, coming back from the grave, who'd actually walked away willingly? RUNNING THE RISK is a hard one to swallow, but then again, books about...

His Sinful Touch


When you don't know who you are...but you know where your heart lies. Sabrina can't remember what sent her fleeing her country home and to London. She's wearing a man's clothes and doesn't even know her own name. But the bruises on her body and a few...

Love Story


LOVE STORY is a hot, sexy romantic read with unforgettable characters and plenty of angst. Ooh, the angst! I love it and I love this story a lot. This is definitely going on my keeper shelf! I've read a lot of Lauren Layne's books, ever since i first...

Hustle of the Gunman


HUSTLE OF THE GUNMAN is the fourth book in the Galaxia Pirates series. In this instalment, we have the exact opposite of insta-love. Instead, Darrel has been in love with Toby for over eight years, but Toby wants nothing to do with him. Toby finally succeeds...

One and Only


Another superb offering from Jenny Holiday! It's no secret that I love Jenny Holiday's books (49th Floor Novels). So it's an auto-reflex to snatch this one up, especially when the hero and heroine promised to deliver sparks of the clashing kind. I'm...

Hurts to Love You


For a man nearly a dozen years older than Evangeline Chandler, she's the epitome of the forbidden fruit. The rich heiress shouldn't fraternise with the housekeeper's son, after all. Still, Eve had barely registered on Gabe Hunter's radar when she was...

Heavenly Pleasures


What's a girl to do when she accidentally dials Brazil and racks up a mobile phone charge in excess of four grand? Why take a job in a brothel as a receptionist to pay it off. Likes: As someone who both fought and acquiesced to parental involvement...

Wicked Choice


WICKED CHOICE (The Wicked Horse Vegas #4) by Sawyer Bennett is one of the best erotic romances I have read! There are hot, steamy and erotic sex scenes throughout an amazing gender twist of a story that is strong enough to stand on its own even without...

The Sins of Lord Lockwood


There are few authors who can tempt me back into historical romance and Meredith Duran is always one of them. But it certainly doesn't hurt that the very peculiar situation of Lord Lockwood, or better known as Liam Devaliant--first revealed in The Duke...

Accept My Surrender


This contemporary romance blooms into a satisfying tale of self-discovery. John is a middle age man who questions if he should have been married to a woman. With strained relations, John's wife leaves him. Isolated, John appears to be in suspended animation,...

Brooklynaire


Writing this review was difficult, mostly because of the anticipation I had with Nate/Becca's story--the build-up and the fandom surrounding this couple pretty much came to a feeding frenzy--which Sarina Bowen finally wrote. Most likely then were my expectations...

The Upside to Being Single


4 silly, sexy stars for THE UPSIDE TO BEING SINGLE! Mellie Rogers should never have allowed her friends to coerce her into flashing the balcony full of hot men for beads. Naturally, she's humiliated when the hottest of the group turns out to be her...

Let the Dead Lie


LET THE DEAD LIE is my second W.L. Brooks novel and I couldn't be more pleased. Ms. Brooks has an uncanny knack for creating three-dimensional characters that leap off the page and she absolutely did that with the four sisters who are as alike as they...

Claimed


It's no surprise that I've often complained about the brevity of the dynamic (and instalove) duo Alexa Riley's stories. The novella-length and even shorter tales they weave have tended to be--in part due to the length--full of alpha males who take over...

Burning for an Assassin


Looking for a killer lesbian erotica? Try a book from Ms. Snow. I picked this book up because I wanted to read more f/f romance. If it included erotica and a bit of suspense, all the better. The fact that it included shifters, witches and kinky sex? Now...

Switch It Up


Looks like I'm on a geek roll, because lookee here, another book with geek characters! Maddy is a hacker who tests websites for their security. When she found a hole in the website of Noble House, the online site of a kink club, she immediately drove...

Unlocking Fear


3 suspenseful stars for UNLOCKING FEAR. Noah Kendall's glad to be back in Blyth Lake after serving in the Marines, even more so when he meets vacationer Reese Woodward. Reese is in town to see what she can discover about the disappearance of her cousin...

Show Me


Unlike its predecessor, SHOW ME is written in a very different vein--much more than just an astronaut looking to fulfill his lifelong dream beyond Earth's atmosphere and a woman so sheltered that the whole world seems new. If Tell Me is an opposites-attract...
