Alpha Mail


5 emotional roller coastery stars for ALPHA MAIL! When Sienna Mills wanted all the benefits of an alpha male without the headache of possessive, asshole behavior, she decided to start Alpha Mail. Sienna had no idea how popular the sexy service would...

Legacy of Evil


I must confess. I almost wasn't able to read LEGACY OF EVIL. I have difficulty tolerating watching or reading anything to do with animals (wereanimals/shape shifters notwithstanding). But, I made it through the prologue and I'm so glad I kept going. Wow,...

Surfacing


SURFACING is the engrossing story of a young man, hurt beyond belief and grieving, lost to his world but desperately trying to reconnect. Everywhere he turns, he drowns in memories of the life and loves that have been taken from him. So he returns to...

Wicked in a Kilt

5 shiny stars for CUFFED! As kids, Grant Malone and Emerson Reeves were inseparable. Until Grant told Emmy's secret and she got sent away. Back in town, twenty years and a lifetime of experience later, Emerson is pissed that Phony Maloney is now Officer...

Jax


One consistent thing about Cristin Harber's characters is that they do tend to behave in ways I'll never expect. Jax and Seven are no exception to this general rule that I've come to learn of the Titan gang; neither is the direction that Harber takes...

Vengeance


VENGEANCE is an intriguing second book in the series, especially for me. Intriguing because there aren't a lot of books that follow a couple after their HEA, and rarer for me, because I don't think I've ever read one. In this, VENGEANCE was a pleasant...

Kill Game


KILL GAME was an amazing first installment of a series that brings us on the edge. This is the first book I read from the author, but what an amazing first impression. This book was excellent. Dominic Russo, a bounty hunter, gets himself involved in...

5 super triggery stars for BEDROOM HYMNS! Teenage Sophia is terrified. Kidnapped right off the street and bought by 3 men, she can either give in or fight back. There's no question which she'll choose. Cole, Jackson and Dominic are ready to train the...

Her Mate and Master


HER MATE AND MASTER is the sixth book of Renee Rose's Zandian Masters series. So far, I've been completely blown away by this series, and I'm not an overly huge fan of Sci Fi romance, but Renee Rose has a way of making these books way more exciting than...

Catalyst


I've always thought of Rachel Grant as the romantic suspense author who goes where good authors of this sub-genre go, then where most books actually end, takes it a breath-stealing mile further. Where entire books would have been written around a sex-trafficking...

Fatal Truths


April Zyon is inarguably one of my very favorite authors. That being said, this series, Heroes of Olympus is one of the reasons. She comes up with some of the most truly remarkable book series ideas that keep it fresh. Seriously. In a romance world where...

Fire


FIRE (Underground Encounters Book 2) by Lisa Carlisle is HOT! I am very glad I continued on in this series, even though the first novella in the series had a few problems for me. This story begins a year after the fire at Vamps and follows Maya. It...

His Curvy Woman


Sam Crescent continues her Curvy Women Wanted series in this wonderful novella about tattoo artist Ace Heart and his shop assistant Trixie Dean. Sam Crescent is an awesome author who writes books about real women, with hips, tummies, and curves abound....

Theo

A War Like Ours


As an avid reader, it takes a lot to surprise me. Author Saffron Kent not only delivered an angsty story with A WAR LIKE OURS, but she grabbed me by the heartstrings and made me ugly cry. While some readers might have difficulty if they aren't comfortable...

Knocking Her Up

The Rules


Well, that settles it. I'm in love with Elizabeth Brown. The characteristics of her male leads are practically identical to what I envision in the perfect man. Humorous, thoughtful, capable, quick-witted, protective. I could go on and on (and that...

The Lessons


I absolutely loved this book! I began to crush on Ryan in the very first chapter and it just continued to build from there. Soon, I was head over heels for the guy. And I found Natalie and her potty mouth to be hilarious. I can relate, since I have a...

Hard Lessons


HARD LESSONS (The Dungeon Book 1) by Annie Oakfield is an erotic sexual romp through a safe adult playground called The Dungeon. This story contains voyeurism, multiple combinations of participation, but always safe condom use. Angie Henderson has...

Dirty Scoundrel


Millionaire/Billionaire books aren't exactly the sort of reads I go after, simply because their implausibility severely impedes my ability to suspend disbelief for this sub-genre in romance. But Jessica Clare's Roughneck Billionaires who start out dirt...

The Love Song of Sawyer Bell


There's something about a musician book that just got my attention. THE LOVE SONG OF SAWYER BELL wasn't any different. I loved reading about the music world. Sawyer is a Julliard's student that is changing her classic music background to join Victoria...

Twisted Truths

The Bear and the Nightingale


THE BEAR AND THE NIGHTINGALE is a captivating, edgy tale of growing up and finding one's self and beliefs. It has been recommended for fans of Uprooted (by Naomi Novik), but I thought fans of Wintesong (by S. Jae-Jones) would also enjoy this as well....

First Fall


5 wildly original and engrossing stars for FIRST FALL! After Eden fell, two tribes were formed from the carnage. The female Varekai are bloodthirsty and inventive, while the male Elikai are strong and resourceful. After an Elikai steals a Varekai...

Birthday Girl


3 lukewarm stars for BIRTHDAY GIRL. Cohen James is a fuck up. Oh, he's a damn fine hockey player, but as a man? Not so much. Relegated to teaching adult swim lessons at the local YMCA, he's miserable. Until he meets Annie Plymouth. Terrified of water,...
