Review: Her Lucky Cowboy by Jennifer Ryan

I have a total thing for heroines who are, how do you say? Quirky? But Jennifer Ryan has gone above and beyond and taken quirky and added a brilliant mind, a kind soul, and a horrible upbringing to build one of my favorite characters of the year! “Cowboy” romances are still new to me – I don’t read all that many – so I’m glad I didn’t let this one get by me!

Review: Dirty Thoughts by Megan Erickson

Megan Erickson is an author I’ve noticed around the blogs but it wasn’t until a recent review I saw on Nick’s Book Blog for one of her other books that I took the leap. Besides, how could I refuse such a catchy series name and smart book titles? Dirty mechanics? Yes, I’d let these guys work on my chassis… okay, not really, I’m married but they make great matches for our sweet heroines!

Review: Even Vampires Get the Blues by Sandra Hill

I have been rabidly trying new authors this year. A lot of it has to do with trying new genres. Mostly its due to working at the library and being bombarded with books I would never have known had existed before. For instance, I had no idea that paranormal romance had so many authors writing it! Just a few years ago, I had a hard time finding PNR books. Now they’re as easy to find in a supermarket as a highlander book.

Review: Sisters of Blood and Spirit by Kady Cross

I absolutely LOVED this ghost story!!! I don’t think I’ve ever read a better one 🙂 I will disclaim that statement with the fact that I haven’t read all that many ghost stories. My experience is mostly urban fantasy stories with ghosts as side characters and not really a huge part of the plot.

Review: All the Ways to Ruin a Rogue by Sophie Jordan

Historical romances and I have a tenuous relationship. For a long time I resisted getting wrapped up in this genre of books. I’ve had less than good luck with them in the past. Last month, I saw Sophie Jordan had a new historical releasing soon. I loved Sophie Jordan’s new adult books, but she’s actually KNOWN for her historicals. Perhaps I should try again…

Review: Storm Siren by Mary Weber

Cover-lover alert!! I totally lookie-loo’d at this book solely because of it’s gorgeous cover! But of course I read the synopsis and thus began my hunt for the book. The synopsis held soooo much promise, no? But you’re probably looking at the three and half star rating, scratching your head, thinking, “what went wrong?” Nothing really… let me explain. And note: three and half stars means I liked it!!!

Review: A Darkness Strange and Lovely by Susan Dennard

I absolutely adore this series. Okay, I might be a wee bit biased because Susan Dennard is one of the coolest authors in the entire world. I’ve met and chatted with her and she is so incredibly down to earth normal it’s sick. And is she adorable or what?! Yeah, yeah, she’s a Michigan author, what are you going to do about it? Let me spew her greatness for a few sentences and I’ll get to the review eventually…

Review: Tease by Sophie Jordan

Writing romance is nothing new for Sophie Jordan. She’s been doing it for a while now with historical romances. But I absolutely LOVED her first book in her Ivy Chronicles series, Foreplay. This New Adult series has books with simple, silly titles that actually completely capture the entire story in one word.

Review: On the Fence by Kasie West

It’s summer time. That fabulous time for reading lots of books! Lots of sunshine, rainbows, cotton candy and happiness. None of those downer books about apocalypse, arms being ripped out of sockets, your dog died so you’re going on a bender of epic proportions and getting a tattoo. NO, NO! No dark books! Those are for the rainy days. Or in case you can’t stop smiling after you finish this book, because that is a strong possibility…

Early Review: The Dark World by Cara Lynn Shultz

Here lies another author that I’ve wanted to read for a long time. Cara Lynn Shultz is known for her Spellbound series. It’s a well reviewed young adult paranormal series and one that I’ve wanted to read but, yeah… have never gotten around to (story of my life). So as soon as I saw that she had a new series coming out I jumped all over it.

Review: The Forever Song by Julie Kagawa

While I absolutely LOVED the plot, the world Ms. Kagawa has imagined for her vampires and human survivors, and the HEA ending to this series/trilogy, it was the wordy, slow start to the book that held me back from giving it a five star review. But trust me when I say that once the blood starting hitting the walls, I was ALL IN!!!!
