Review: Ignite by Karen Erickson

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…

Cover Reveal: Bedmates by Nichole Chase

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.

Review: Ride Hard by Laura Kaye

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.

Review: Listen to Me by Kristen Proby

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…

Review: Stone Cold Cowboy by Jennifer Ryan

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!

Review: What’s Broken Between Us by Alexis Bass

I think it’s pretty well known that I don’t normally read contemporary fiction that deals with serious issues. I completely shun anything by Jodi Piccoult for fear my meds couldn’t handle the deep depression I might find myself in. But for some odd reason, the situation in this story had me completely intrigued.

Review: All Broke Down by Cora Carmack

It’s Fall and that means FOOTBALL around my parts! I couldn’t think of a better way to spend my lazy afternoon with my sick son than re-reading All Broke Down by Cora Carmack and dreaming of Ohio State Football Saturdays of past.

Review: Loving Dallas by Caisey Quinn

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…

Review: Leaving Amarillo by Caisey Quinn

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…

Review: Dirty Talk by Megan Erickson

I fell in love with the “hero” of this story in the first Mechanics of Love book. I remember our moment like it was yesterday… Brent was sitting at his desk, doing paperwork with reading glasses perched on his nose ∗sigh∗. Can you imagine a hot mechanic doing that? Well, Megan Erickson did and I love her for it!

Review: Truest by Jackie Lea Sommers

This book is giving me the thoughts. My brain cells are tired. My review may show signs of this fatigue and I apologize ahead of time for this. Grammar be damned. Silas be damned, but I am not a walking thesaurus. Who’s Silas? Only the teenage boy of my teenage dreams. And he’s right here, in this book. Right here. Fictional, dammit. But that’s why I read, to escape reality.

Review: Undaunted by Ronnie Douglas

As soon as I figured out that Ronnie Douglas was Melissa Marr, I had to know what she was going to do with the new adult genre. Especially because she noted that she wrote from experience on her Ronnie Douglas website. Sounds like fun to me!
