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.
I’m not one to read girly, friendship-type books. I actually run away in the opposite direction from them. But when I picked up the review copy of The Unexpected Everything, I had no clue that ‘friendship’ was a pretty big part of the story’s plot. Turned out, it wasn’t that painful for me to endure.
I’ve been wanting to read Katee Robert for a while now. Don’t you just hate feeling like the last person to “know” when all your reading friends are reading an […]
The Last Boy and Girl in the World turned out to be different than what I expected from the synopsis. From the cute cover to the fun-loving teens having parties in the water-logged streets in the synopsis, this story sounded like it would be a light look at a serious time in a town’s transformation.
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.
I like Jennifer Dawson’s stories. I like them a lot. They are good.
Normally, I wouldn’t pick up a book that looks anything like this. The cover reminds of a woman’s contemporary novel and I’m just not drawn to that kind of drama. I need happy ever afters and I want them sweet and perfect.
Why the heck don’t I read more books by Kylie Scott. Seriously? I mean, she’s absolutely brilliant in the snark and witty banter department. I thought it was a fluke of the first book I read by her, Play. Turns out, not a fluke…
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’m a newbie to suspense and mysteries. I’m just not drawn to them like romance and fantasy. I read to relax, not get tied up in knots. But I […]
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.
Are you looking for a well written “classic” small town romance? In the mood for classic romance tropes like opposites attract, secrets from the past coming to light, or just plain ‘ole starting over? Well, this story has them all and believe it or not, Ms. Bross made them all work together wonderfully.
I grabbed The Hurricane by R.J. Prescott because I’m always up for a “new to me” author and I saw the good reviews for this book. The story of a gym-rat boxer turned up-and-coming amateur boxer who falls for a reserved, shy girl running from a horrific past absolutely melted my heart. This is a story that is not easy to put down for too long.
It’s easy for me to sit here and write book reviews. I read a book, I take notes, I write what I think and feel. It’s not rocket science. When I have to write a negative review, though, I cringe… and hope no one starts stalking me.
I just couldn’t ignore this story. Oh, I tried. I saw the beautiful cover, read the synopsis, and thought, “Score!” But then I skimmed reviews and saw the dreaded cliffhanger and ‘story continued in book two’ dribble. I hung my head and walked away.
I wouldn’t normally have noticed this book except that a publisher introduced it in an email. I read the synopsis and thought, “This sounds so adorable and perfect for a […]
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!
I am officially addicted to Elle Kennedy’s writing. She writes good 😉 Seriously, though, I had her Off-Campus series in my Top Ten books of 2015. Each book has been worth every cent I paid for it, probably more.
Okay, so I’ve had a few promo posts this week BUT I really wanted to share this one because it’s so unique and pretty cool.
The Consequence series is contemporary romance with just about improbable story lines that make me laugh out loud, swoon, and smile all the livelong day.
Armie, Armie, Armie… what are we going to do with your sex-lovin’, raunchy t-shirt wearin’ sweet ass? I have some ideas. Merissa Colter has had ideas for years…
So Valentine’s Day… the holiday that has been hyped up for lovers where all your romantic dreams will come true…right? That’s the way it’s supposed to happen, Hallmark told me so, dammit!
