I don’t read romantic suspense very often but when I do….. I rely on Kimberly at Caffeinated Book Reviewer for book recommendations 🙂 She reads a ton of these types […]

I might not be the best person to review the suspense genre but I’m going to give it a try. Just keep in mind that I’m a “virgin” to the genre. Be gentle…
“I did not see that coming” How often can you say that about a mystery, or about any book these days? Hey, how about a young adult book? Well, have I got a book for you!
The unique storytelling format added a ton of humor to this second chance romance with the added story about “crazy” parents (tongue firmly in cheek).
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.
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 […]
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 😉
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.
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…
The Last Boy and Girl in the World turned out to be different than what I expected from the synopsis. From the cute cover to the fun-loving teens having parties in the water-logged streets in the synopsis, this story sounded like it would be a light look at a serious time in a town’s transformation.
Are you looking for a well written “classic” small town romance? In the mood for classic romance tropes like opposites attract, secrets from the past coming to light, or just plain ‘ole starting over? Well, this story has them all and believe it or not, Ms. Bross made them all work together wonderfully.
