Review: Keepsake (and Bittersweet) by Sarina Bowen

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.

Review: Four Letter Word by J. Daniels

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.

Review: Homecoming by Stacey Shannon

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?

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.
