Review: Dare to Stay by Jen McLaughlin

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.

Review: Don’t Tempt Me by Lori Foster

Lori Foster, besides being an all-around fabulous human, is an author I know I can go to for a well written romance that 9 times out of 10, will include a bit of suspense to keep my heart rate up all the way to a happily ever after. In Don’t Tempt Me, Ms. Foster even offers up double the happiness by the end of the story – a veritable two for one 😉

Review: Smolder by Karen Erickson

There are some romance tropes that just drive me up the wall and back down the other side. Hidden in this tale was a storyline that had me putting this book down once, pondering a “DNF” status for it, but finally picked it back up and enjoyed the story for what it is: good writing and intriguing characters.

Review: 738 Days by Stacey Kade

I don’t think I’ve read a story plot this deep or thought provoking as this one in a long, long time. My brain muscles are still un-cramping from all the thinking and flat out speed reading I’ve done in the last two days. This is just one of those stories that doesn’t have a good place to stop, regroup, and circle your thoughts back around.

Review: Ignite by Karen Erickson

Oh us silly women. We forgive waaaaay too easily. I love just about everything Karen Erickson (aka Monica Murphy) writes. I eat up her books for breakfast, lunch, and dinner – yummy 🙂 So I can honestly say that my ONLY complaint about Ignite is that our heroine needed a backbone. Let me explain with my completely biased but glowing review…

Review: The Way to Game the Walk of Shame by Jenn P. Nguyen

What happens when the most uptight, over-achieving, driven student in the senior class ends up getting drunk as a skunk and wakes up next to the school’s most notorious playboy? A whole lot of character growth, sprinked with sweet, tender family moments that make this contemporary romance an easy winner for a summer time quick read.

Review: The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson

I’m not one to read girly, friendship-type books. I actually run away in the opposite direction from them. But when I picked up the review copy of The Unexpected Everything, I had no clue that ‘friendship’ was a pretty big part of the story’s plot. Turned out, it wasn’t that painful for me to endure.
