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).
How did you learn about “love”? I’m talking romantic love. Not the family, you got to love ’em kind of “love”. Most people learn from watching the people around them. You learn what kind of love you want…
Would you believe that I actually read this book AND then joined the book tour? Yep, I enjoyed this story THAT much. So besides a review, I can share an excerpt and a tour-wide giveaway. I so smart 🙂
I’ve just read my first Jill Shalvis book. Where have you been all my life, “Jill Shalvis books”? Oops, there’s one sitting on my bookshelf, unread. Dammit. I […]
I love stories with the soft spoken, hard working, tough guy who is nothing but a gentleman to the ladies. Yep, I like a strong guy 🙂
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 […]
Did I just read one of the nicest, purest romances ever? Perhaps….
Ms. Carlino has done it to me again. I don’t even know where to start.
I’m going to start off this review by sharing my “Colleen Hoover” resume. So I’ve read about five of her books and I’ve enjoyed every one of them. I […]
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 […]
Ahhh… the sun shines brighter on the days I read a book by Kasie West. She is one of my favorite summer-time authors. I think my head might explode if […]
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 😉
Popular romance author Laura Kaye has a new series coming out in September and I have the first cover to share today! It’s actually a book #2 because technically […]
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.
Today I’m participating in a blog tour for Cecy Robson’s Inseverable, book one in her new Carolina Beach series. This is, IMHO, something a bit different from her….
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.
Non-spoiler: If you don’t like love triangles, just don’t read this story.
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…
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.
