Fixing Sydney


Diane Zparkki's FIXING SYDNEY was a bit of an emotional rollercoaster for me and one that I don't regret because it was a fabulous read. Chapter 1 opens with Sydney reminiscing about her life. We know that it's been three years since her high school prom...

I Think I Love You


I THINK I LOVE YOU feels like the true end to Lauren Layne's Oxford series, a not quite full-length tale of the last standing couple, who don't even know they're meant to be paired with...yet. Ms. Layne tackles the friends-to-lovers trope here and straightaway,...

Montana Marine


MONTANA MARINE by Debra Parmley is a contemporary romantic suspense novella set in the Brotherhood Protectors Kindle World. This novella is heavier on the suspense and intrigue plot while more on the sweet side romantically than other stories in the Brotherhood...

The Risk of Rogues


THE RISK OF ROGUES is an enjoyable read and a great addition to the series. Rarely do I read about a Regency heroine so concerned with her intended's occupation, as it would definitely affect her future children's ability to survive in the world. In that...

The Devil's Cum in His Eye


When it comes to humour and incredulous plots, Mr. Cox is always a winner. His stories are always a thrilling time with fun characters and mind boggling plots. In this latest series, how can a reader not love the title and pick it up? Yes, I read this...

Three Day Fiancee


THREE DAY FIANCEE is a sexy and romantic contemporary romance from Marissa Clarke. I loved Dear Jane, the first book in this series, and I'm pleased that THREE DAY FIANCEE is written in the same fun and flirty vein, ensuring lots of laughter and feel...

A Dom and His Artist


Sweet and seductive, Martin Carmichael lures the elusive Collin Malloy from his secure fortress. New-to-me author, Ms. Melzer sucks me into the tale quickly and thoroughly. Her characters are adorable. Specifically, Collin Malloy tugs on the heart strings...

Black Cat Security


Sneakily sexy, BLACK CAT SECURITY catches a reader off guard in a most pleasant manner. After whipping through this book, all a reader can ask is, where is the rest of this series? Full disclosure, I didn't read the blurb for the book. The cover of the...

Love Beyond Opposites


This book was one giant 'aww'! Lennon is a rock star and he knows his future isn't college. It's touring with his band and hopefully signing a record deal in the near future. Graduating from high school is just the first step in that plan. But that...

Rhythm


Wow, just wow! This third Smoke, Inc tale is packed full of everything that I've enjoyed in the previous books, plus so much more. More funny, more steam, more emotion... More everything. Marty and Holly's story is perfectly titled, considering their...

Bloodtree River


Sarah Barrie writes a rather slow but steadily-building mystery of disappearing girls in a remote part of Tasmania and an undercover stint that goes badly awry. Still, it's a spin-off book for Indy O'Meara, tough cop and determined woman--who'd initially...

13

Filthy Gods


R. Scarlett is a new author to me, but FILTHY GODS won me over completely with sultry writing shot through with that delicious tinge of darkness I can't seem to resist. The name of the series itself was eye-catching, so much so that I thought of Neil...

Bro Code


Sometimes I forget how satisfying it can be to read a straightforward, mutual-want-with-lust story, big brother's sister or not. In truth, I don't understand the 'bro code' that's laid out like the holy grail in romance--why shouldn't the brother's...

Kiss Me, Bite Me


KISS ME, BITE ME (Blood Kissed #1) by Sayara St. Clair is described as a vampire paranormal romance, but it does not become a paranormal romance until well over halfway through the story. Normally because of this delay I would be disappointed, but the...

The Dating Experiment


I stewed over this for a while, wondering if it was a book that I wanted to take some time over to unravel my thoughts about in a review, walked away and said 'nah', then returned to pretty much get it off my chest. It's probably fair to say that I...

Crossing Quinn


Devilish funny, CROSSING QUINN will have a reader laughing up a storm. This space opera is complete with a headstrong stubborn female and an alpha male intent on taming his chosen mate. Another lovely addition to the Coletti Warlords series, this time,...

The Hook-Up Experiment


Having a job that involves looking at dick pics isn't one I'd personally pick for myself, though that alone is off-kilter enough to keep me reading in what is a really...loud, messy and mostly angst-free story. 'The Hook-Up Experiment' is as the title...

Embracing Her Heart - The Bradens and Montgomerys (Pleasant Hill - Oak Falls)


Once again I can say when I sit down with a Melissa Foster contemporary romance, I am never disappointed. I might debate if the plot was or was not my favorite, but I am ALWAYS in love with her characters! EMBRACING HER HEART (The Bradens & Montgomerys...

Breaking Gravity


Just like that, I 'ship them. The deliciously forbidden teacher-student romance is a favourite of mine but I have to say there's none so well executed and so well crafted as BREAKING GRAVITY, which was brilliantly enthralling from the very start....
