I had been waiting for this book since December of 2015. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. The cover caught my eye but it was the synopsis that nabbed me and reeled me in. And as readers, we’re surprised when a book turns out a little bit different than what we expected, whether for the good or the bad. Okay, maybe you aren’t but I am, every time it happens to me.
How did you learn about “love”? I’m talking romantic love. Not the family, you got to love ’em kind of “love”. Most people learn from watching the people around them. You learn what kind of love you want…
Would you believe that I actually read this book AND then joined the book tour? Yep, I enjoyed this story THAT much. So besides a review, I can share an excerpt and a tour-wide giveaway. I so smart 🙂
I’ve just read my first Jill Shalvis book. Where have you been all my life, “Jill Shalvis books”? Oops, there’s one sitting on my bookshelf, unread. Dammit. I […]
Color me clueless, but I had no idea the cover image was a rose engulfed in flame. Well, that kind of explains a lot…. Too bad it took me the entire story to figure it out because that really is a beautiful cover!
This is going to be one of the easiest reviews I’ve ever written.
So there’s this Queen that can keep everyone safe from the mean, nasty natural spirits that inhabit this world. The Queen can do this by controlling these water, fire, earth, wood, and air spirits by using the power they gave her over them. Do you see anything wrong with this scenario? Oh, yeah, a lot can go wrong…
If I was asked after BEA 2016 to pick the one book I received that I was most intrigued about and excited to read, I would have answered Sarah […]
I love stories with the soft spoken, hard working, tough guy who is nothing but a gentleman to the ladies. Yep, I like a strong guy 🙂
Ghosts by Raina Telgemeier is one of my most favorite books to get at BEA 2016. It’s a sentimental favorite for several reasons.
What a diamond in the rough I found! On a whim, I picked up Cheryl Etchison’s Here and Now, the second book in her American Valor series.
I love me some hockey. Hockey season is right around the corner and I have mad love and respect for those men who move at super speed on ice AND do it standing on thin blades of metal. Go Red Wings!! Oh, wait… this is a book review! And for a NEW favorite contemporary romance writer of mine… I better start focusing…
It’s getting so very close to that time of the year when you snuggle up on bleacher seats under the lights on Friday nights, or you tailgate Saturday mornings, or you waste away a Sunday on your couch in front of the TV. Need to get the mood going early with a side of romance?
Awe, man… I was so totally looking forward to Tate and Wren’s story. I love a good “you annoy the crap out of me” to “let make babies” romance.
Game On is a great young adult story with substance and sweetness all rolled together.
I’m just going to get this out of the way first: This story has a love triangle that isn’t a love triangle. There is an obvious couple who […]
By now you’ve most likely heard about the book Illuminae. It’s innovative, fast-paced, and extremely mind-numbingly contemplative. I’m sure many of my brain cells suffered in the reading of this book. […]
Did I just read one of the nicest, purest romances ever? Perhaps….
Ms. Carlino has done it to me again. I don’t even know where to start.
I’m going to start off this review by sharing my “Colleen Hoover” resume. So I’ve read about five of her books and I’ve enjoyed every one of them. I […]
This is one of my favorite lines from Monty Python and it fits so many things in life. It just sings in my head whenever I come across […]
I just read and reviewed Sophie Jordan’s Hell Breaks Loose the other day and I can’t help but notice that I have another book on my hands here with a bad boy and his love interest in an impossible happily ever after situation. But Jen McLaughlin’s Dare to Stay is different in that Chris, our bad boy, really eff’d up. He IS a bad boy who is possibly on his way to redemption.
Being second book in a series is always tough. “Sophomore slump” is what they call it when the second book doesn’t live up to the quality of the first […]
Ahhh… the sun shines brighter on the days I read a book by Kasie West. She is one of my favorite summer-time authors. I think my head might explode if […]
