Four by Jane Blythe

Four by Jane Blythe

I enjoy reading the Count to Ten series because Author Jane Blythe is not afraid to bring to life the graphic violence that truly can occur with crime. Before I started reading Four though, I had to take a moment and metaphorically put on my big girl panties to ready myself for this story. I might enjoy and appreciate this series but that does not mean that it doesn’t scare […]


Dangerous Minds by Janet Evanovich

Dangerous Minds by Janet Evanovich

Dangerous Minds is the second installment of the Knight and Moon series. What draws me to this series is that it is just comical. I mean where else can I read a book that has phrases like “whack-a-doodle and “crap on a cracker.” I also very much enjoy the light-hearted romance that is developing between Emerson and Riley. I like that they are both aware of the building attraction but […]

The Royal Treatment by M.J. Summers

The Royal Treatment is a delightful, potty-mouthed, romantic comedy that will have you laughing out loud! Just thinking about this story has me cracking up! I would have to agree with the blurb about this story being satisfying to fans of Bridget Jones, because it was fekking hilarious but at the same time you will root for the underdogs and love the sweet romance. This is a charming little fairy tale […]

Eye Candy by Jessica Lemmon

Eye Candy is a friends to lovers romance but from the start there is a spark between the two main characters. So, there is no awkwardness regarding “all of a sudden noticing that your friend is attractive” type of trope. Both Jackie and Vince had been through some heart-wrenching divorces where they were left by their significant others. This created some pretty deep wounds that they both slowly recovered from. Despite […]

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 […]

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 […]


Until it Fades by K.A. Tucker

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 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 […]

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 […]

Midnight at the Bright Ideas Bookstore by Matthew J. Sullivan

As a book reviewer, I am almost always drawn to stories involving bookstores or libraries. When I came across Midnight at the Bright Ideas Bookstore I was of course drawn to it. Adding the murder-mystery just made it even more enticing. Also helps that the cover is very eye catching. What I thought was going to be a cozy mystery turned into a true murder-mystery style story with red herrings, […]

America’s Next Reality Star by Laura Heffernan

I wanted to read America’s Next Reality Star because I was curious to see how convincing the storyline would be. Would it be believable? Would it compare to what I think the process would be like? I can say that I have only ever watched reality shows like Hell’s Kitchen and Face Off. I am not really a connoisseur of reality television but this story was very convincing. I really […]

Dominic’s Nemesis by D. Alyce Domain

Dominic’s Nemesis was a thrill ride into the paranormal. This story has an abundance of supernatural abilities, a little demon possession, and ooh la la romantic love. I know you are wondering how that is even works together but the writing weaves a story that has a strong plot with well-developed ideas and subplots that are tied together nicely. It makes for an exciting, steamy read that will haunt you. Dominic […]

Review with Giveaway: Chance at Redemption by Samatha Harris

***Check out the Blog Tour Schedule and follow along with the tour.*** Review: Chance at Redemption is a steamy romance book that illustrates that appearances are not always what they seem and that no one is beyond redemption.

I Want Superpowers by Steven Bereznai

I Want Superpowers is a wonder of a story! It was so much more than I ever imagined when I sat down to read this novel. Set in a dystopian society where the inhabitants are truly divided via the “Have, Have-Nots” rule, except in this case it is regarding genetics. Once the society lived as a whole until their children started being born with special abilities, referred to as manifestations. […]
