Growth of the Bear by Rachel Robins

Growth of the Bear is the third book in the Bear Kamp series and I just loved this book! Justin is a member of the Kamp pack lead by Alpha bear-shifter Austin. Justin had always been one of the meeker bear shifters due to the abusive family he came from. He is not a pushover by any means but he was the runt of his family and they were very […]

Hearts are like Balloons by Candace Robinson

In the beginning of Hearts are like Balloons I was enamored from the starts as I learned about May Faulkner’s early memories of her father. It amazed me that the author was able to in one chapter show the emotional bond that May felt for her Father. Absolutely had my heart already tied up in this book by the first chapter. With her father’s sudden passing May tries to focus on […]

The Disappearances by Emily Bain Murphy

The Disappearances is a wondrous tale that is steeped in historical elements and a delight to the imagination. The writing is well crafted, eloquent and rich with details. The characters are developed, unique and memorable. This is a young adult novel and it has the strong emotional pulls that would resonate with that audience. It also has whimsy that would appeal to all readers. This story is set in the […]

The Underground River by Martha Conway

The Underground River is a story set in the late 1830’s. The abolitionist movement was in its infancy and it would be years before the 13th Amendment to the Constitution – the Emancipation Proclamation – would be ratified. The story is a memoir told through the lens of the main character May Bedloe. This is not a book that really focuses on the abolitionists, the underground railroad or the realities […]

Poison and Prejudice by Chelsea Field

I absolutely adore the Eat, Pray, Die Humorous Mystery series. It feels like my birthday every time a book in this series releases. I always enjoy reading about what is going on with Izzy and her gang. This series installment was no exception. It kept me chuckling and hanging on to see what crazy situation Izzy was going to get herself into again. In Poison and Prejudice, Izzy and all […]

The Day of the Duchess by Sarah MacLean

Second chance romances can be a hit or a miss with me. I had not read the previous installments of this series so I had no previous emotions one way or the other on the demise of the relationship for these two characters. Note that I said previous, after reading this book I have all sorts of emotions regarding this story now. I can say that this is absolutely one […]

Until it Fades by K.A. Tucker

What a wonderful slow-building romance! Until it Fades was such a sweet treat for me. The story slowly unfurls starting with the backstory of Catherine Wright. Then it moves on to the crash that nearly cost Brett his life and dealing with the aftermath that would come with saving a hockey hero. For lovers of romance there are some swoony times which culminates with the sweetest happily ever after. A […]

Wired by Julie Garwood

Wired is an action-packed romance filled with suspense, humor, and sexy times. This story is the thirteenth book in the Buchanan-Renard series and from what I can tell each book in this series is a stand-alone. I wanted to read this story because it seemed like it had the right amount of action and romance that I was looking for in a romantic suspense story and I was not disappointed. Allison […]

Edge of the Future by Andria Stone

What drew my interest to Edge of the Future was that it was military science fiction, a debut, and a new author! I am always on the lookout for a good sci-fi read and this book looked just right 😊. Once I started reading it what really got my blood pumping was that it has cyborgs, medical nano-technology that is able to heal just about every sickness and injury, hi-tech […]

Never Say Never Again by W.S. Carmichael

Never Say Never Again had me from the start. I was one pissed of chica that is, lol. The book opens up with the main character in a bit of a domestic situation with her piece of crap husband. Definitely had my heart pumping with righteous anger. I also absolutely had to know where this story was going. I never expected to love it as much as I did with […]

Blog Tour Review: Cherished by Christina Bauer

***Check out the Blog Tour Schedule and follow along with the tour.*** Review: Starting a series on the third book is not the easiest thing to do. The Author did a fantastic job of including backstory details that helped me to clearly understand what had happened in the previous stories so that I would clearly understand the impact of current events. Cherished is the type of book that you can […]

Kiss Me, Kill You by Larissa C. Hardesty

I was interested in reading Kiss Me, Kill You because it is a young adult book that involved succubae’s. Succubae are defined as seducers of men through sexual intercourse. How was the author going to use that type of creature but still keep this story for the intended young adult audience? I have to say that in that regards this book is quite successful. There was a definite sexual element […]
