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…
Kasie West is one of my “happy place” authors. I can count on her to write a great young adult story that won’t weigh me down with angst, nasty unnecessary drama, or leave me dangling off a cliff when all is said and done.
I’ve been looking forward to Archer’s story since Jill Shalvis’ the last full book in the Heartbreaker Bay series.
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).
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 […]
So there’s this Queen that can keep everyone safe from the mean, nasty natural spirits that inhabit this world. The Queen can do this by controlling these water, fire, earth, wood, and air spirits by using the power they gave her over them. Do you see anything wrong with this scenario? Oh, yeah, a lot can go wrong…
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.
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.
Did I just read one of the nicest, purest romances ever? Perhaps….
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 […]
I think I’m batting about 50% this month on books I’m reading. I’ve had a few lately that I’ve wanted to DNF but I managed to stick it out and finish them. Unfortunately, this particular book was one that actually made me more mad by the end.
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.
Young adult urban fantasy is hard to find. GOOD young adult urban fantasy is even harder find. Forget about finding GOOD, DARK, INVENTIVE, and SMART urban fantasy in the young adult section… until Schwab’s This Savage Song.
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…
Even though it’s not out until October this year, I’m looking forward to reading this new series from Nichole Chase. I’ve wanted to read her books for a while now so this new series is a great place to start. And the cover is pretty to look at.
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.
Kristen Proby is back with a new series surrounding five best friends who open a trendy restaurant in Portland, Oregon. It’s actually a brilliant idea, especially if you love “girlfriend” stories. Enter at your own “grammar” risk…
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’m participating in this cover reveal because I’m a huge fan of Karen Erickson (aka Monica Murphy). This is the second book in her new Wildwood series 🙂 […]
Why, oh why, doesn’t anyone write a stand alone anymore? Please, can we just wrap up the story in one book? Why do I have to enjoy a story so much only to be eventually let down at the “non-ending”? At least duologies have been invented because, yeah, those never existed before.
Brutal beginning, Ms. Ryan! I remember sitting in some session, some where, and the speaker noted that an author needs to hook a reader in the first chapter or the book has the potential to fail. On that point alone, Ms. Ryan ran away with the Stanley Cup, the Heisman, and the Super Bowl trophy in one fell swoop!
Disclaimer right off the bat: I adore Sophie Jordan’s writing. I’ve read some of her romances and I like what she does with a romance. So it was about time I got to her more fantastical reads.
