Kylie Scott is an “auto-read” author of mine ever since I’ve read some of her Stage Dive series. There’s just something about her character’s personalities and their dialogue that calls […]
Icon Tag: Bad Boy
The last Billionaire Bad Boys book, The Billionaire Next Door, gave us readers a brief introduction to the middle Crane brother who has been practically absent from the series. Eli […]
After book two in Jen McLaughlin’s The Sons of Steel Row, I really needed to know how Chris and Scotty were going to get themselves out, ALIVE, from the mess […]
Like your romance a little dirty? Ah, c’mon… I can admit it, I do! Sophie Jordan can write fun historicals but oh, can she write dirty bad boys…
What an intriguing idea for a story: a guy going to school to be a lawyer suddenly loses his most valuable asset, his voice….
What Light by Jay Asher came out on October 18th but I really wanted to wait a bit to put my review out because this is such a great story to help you get in the mood for Christmas! It’s about Christmas trees! Lots and lots of Christmas trees!!
Why, oh why did I look at my friend’s reviews of this one? What was I thinking?? I’ve just put pressure on myself to explain my love of this story. I’ve got to list my reasons and have them make sense. This is such a daunting task for me because it’s rare for me to make much sense. Just ask my husband.
This is going to be one of the easiest reviews I’ve ever written.
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 […]
Laura Kaye has ended her Hard Ink series but it is living on, in part, in her new Raven Riders series. And even if you haven’t read any of the Hard Ink books, you will have no problem “fitting in” with this bike club.
I wasn’t sure what to make of this new series by Sophie Jordan. What I mean to say is, guys in prison don’t really do it for me. But it was Sophie Jordan, it was a fresh new series so I took a chance… and I don’t regret it.
I just couldn’t ignore this story. Oh, I tried. I saw the beautiful cover, read the synopsis, and thought, “Score!” But then I skimmed reviews and saw the dreaded cliffhanger and ‘story continued in book two’ dribble. I hung my head and walked away.
Unhooked feels like the little story that could.
Dare to Run felt dark, gritty, and so real to me. I flipped through its pages fast and could not make myself put the book down for a second. I seriously lost hours engrossed in this suspenseful romance between a self-confessed bad guy and a girl who grew up on the streets and was given a chance on a good life.
The third book in Sparrow Beckett’s Master’s Unleashed series is just out and it features the enigmatic, dark, private Russian, Konstantin. This man happily shared his girlfriends (yep, plural) with […]
I can’t believe it’s taken me so long to put up my review of this awesomely fun story! I highly recommend this “happy” read. See what I did there? Ha, maybe not if you haven’t had coffee yet today….
Here we go…. I’m going to sound a bit like every other review out there for a few moments but hang in there with me….
According to Ms. Lemmon’s “Acknowledgements” page at the end of Forgotten Promises, she was asked for a story with an “anti-hero”. I have to say she nailed the anti-hero perfectly when she created the character of Tucker Noscalo. His story and how he changed Morgan Young was not at all what I expected and by the end, it was so much more.
I love a good young adult romantic romp. They are great for cleansing the brain after dramatic, stress filled reads or for reading on cold, rainy days. These simple, sunshine-filled books are not meant to be serious. I only ask that they have a decent story and be well written. This book accomplished one of these requirements and kind of sort of missed on the other. Let me explain…
A Jay Crownover blog tour? Hells to yeahs, baby! I sought this one out with a vengeance. I briefly met Jay Crownover earlier this year at RAGT in Cincinnati and […]
Jessica Lemmon is an author I have been trying to make time to read ever since I saw all the great reviews for her Second Chance series. She lives in Ohio so of course she’s awesome… and probably an awesome writer, too 😉 So when I saw my two favorite bloggers grab the first book in her new Lost Boys series, Fighting for Devlin, I knew what my next step was… copy what they did and request the book.
Jus Accardo is finally back with the second book in her Eternal Balance series. To say I jumped all over this as soon as I saw this available to read and review would be an understatement. This is a story that has actually stuck with me after two years!
It’s Fall and that means FOOTBALL around my parts! I couldn’t think of a better way to spend my lazy afternoon with my sick son than re-reading All Broke Down by Cora Carmack and dreaming of Ohio State Football Saturdays of past.
