I bought and read the first book in Sarina Bowen’s True North series, Bittersweet, back in early July 2016 just after it came out. Unfortunately, I never got around to doing a full review on it but I really loved the escape to a dairy farm and orchard up in Vermont. I missed her second book, Steadfast, but out TODAY is Keepsake, the third book.
I’m going to try very hard to keep this review spoiler-free but suffice it to say, it’s going to be hard! If you haven’t started this series yet, you’re a loser like I’ve been. There’s a program for that and it’s called peer pressure – START READING THIS SERIES NOW!
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.
If you’ve been living under a rock, you may have missed the fact that everyone is loving all over The Others series by Anne Bishop. I finally made it a priority to find out what all the fuss is about.
I am officially addicted to Elle Kennedy’s writing. She writes good 😉 Seriously, though, I had her Off-Campus series in my Top Ten books of 2015. Each book has been worth every cent I paid for it, probably more.
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….
Completely different than any romance I’ve ever read before… How many times have you read those words in a book review? Probably quite a bit. But I have no other way to say it – Crave had an intense, emotional story I wasn’t expecting.
Ahhh, Christmas themed books… good or bad, they WILL get you into the mood for the holidays. But what if a “holiday” story took you from Halloween all the way […]
This entire series has been an addiction with me. I read Drew’s story in The Hook Up and was floored by the amount of PLOT in the romance. I pounced on Gray’s story in The Friend Zone. So there was no looking back when I could finally, FINALLY (yes, I am screaming) know what the heck is going on in quiet Dex’s mind.
I sort of feel guilty that I’m putting both of these book reviews in a single post. For one, each book will be on my favorites list of 2015 this year. They are both that good. And second, each book needs their own limelight, their own little space under the spotlight so everyone notices this series.
I have no clue how I stumbled onto this book. Somewhere, somehow, I saw this cover and HELLO! Amazing cover art. Simple and eye catching, it speaks volumes. So I looked at the reviews on Goodreads and my romance reading friends all really liked this book. We’re talking an average 4.06 rating out of 3,650 ratings. Not bad…
I did not, did not, DID NOT like Dallas Lark in Leaving Amarillo, the first book in Caisey Quinn’s Neon Dreams series. The guy was a bossy, self absorbed, drill sergeant of a big brother to Dixie, his younger sister. I dreaded picking up this book number two for so many reasons but none of them held any whiskey by the time I finished this in yet again record time. As usual, it takes the woman to make the man…
Ever feel like you’re the last to know? That’s seems to be me lately. I don’t know if it is because of the blogging break I took a while back or it’s because I just don’t have the right connections. Either way, I keep hearing about these awesome series and authors and then I’m starting them waaaay after everyone has moved onto book three or four. Case in point…
Escaping Reality, book one in the Secret Life of Amy Bensen series, was originally written back in 2013. I actually remember it coming out and a bunch of my friends liking it. I noticed that it was being re-released this past summer to coincide with Ms. Jones adding to the series in the fall. So the greedy little reader that I am, I snapped it up for review so I can see for myself what all the hype is about Ms. Jones’ writing.
The second book in Clay & Susan Griffith’s Crown & Key Series was like coming home to my old stomping grounds to visit my favorite friends. If that old stomping ground was the absolutely worse place to live because it’s overrun with necromancers, Egyptian demons with snake minions, werewolves without a leader, and escaped magic-wielding felons.
Do you know what HOLIDAY is tomorrow?!?!?! It’s the kick-off of the book tour for Kim Harrison’s The Undead Pool, which happens to come out tomorrow. I have my review AND a giveaway for you TODAY!!!!
I eat up and devour anthologies. And I love the Olympics; the whole ritual of switching TV channels between the sports, watching at all hours of the day, and actually taking an interest in curling. So I leaped on the opportunity to read and review this collection of short stories centered around Olympic sports. I just had no idea these stories were going to be so scorching hot! Seriously, like melt the snow off the polar caps hot!
So I read this little book called Believe by Erin McCarthy. I believe I’ve found a new author I love! Sorry… it had to be done. But this story really was a well written romance that I enjoyed getting lost in for a day.
I have quick reviews for On the Edge of Never and On the Edge of Always, both by J.A. Redmerski. Both fantastically written books, one just being better than the other 😉
That Touch of Magic is the second book in Lucy March’s Nodaway Falls series. It’s kind of a cross between a paranormal romance and an urban fantasy. If you like a blend of both, you’ll like this story. It has both plus a gazillion tons of mystery and investigation weaved through with light romance.
I really wanted to love this book. There is so much promise in the world that Cate Tiernan is building with this series. But in the end, I was left scratching my head and asking myself, “what happened?”
The third book in the A Little Too Far series by Lisa Desrochers completely held me in it’s grip for it’s entire 284 pages. I needed pages 285, 286, 287… I went into this book thinking it was just going to be a typlcal “Cinderella” story with heat added. I was not expecting the intriguing story I got, the action, and to ultimately like both Sam and Harrison. And what happened to Sam? I never saw it coming!! But more on my freak out in a moment…
The story completely captured me and entirely held my attention so much so that I didn’t even know I was getting to the end until I was close to it. This series keeps getting better and better!
Disclaimer: I’m a fan of J. Kenner’s. I previously read her Stark Trilogy and thoroughly enjoyed her writing and all three of the books. But honestly, it took me some hemming and hawing before I hit the request button for the ARC. In the end, it was the author’s name that sold me and I’m so glad I gave this book a chance.
