Review: Prescription for Love by Zee Monodee

Prescription For Love is about a sweet romance that developed between two unlikely characters. Margo Nolan was a woman who had everything under control. She ruled her position as a forensic pathologist with an iron fist. She did not care if she ruffled any feathers with the local law enforcement or anyone else. She had a good rapport with her colleagues and was okay with sacrificing any personal life for […]

Review: Survive the Night by Katie Ruggle

To say that Survive the Night is my favorite book in the Rocky Mountain K9 Unit series would be an absolutely true statement! I did not think that I was going to love Otto Gunnersen’s character as much as I did because I usually prefer more alpha male type characters but I loved Otto! He was so sweet and bumbling but at the same time fiercely protective, a girl could […]

Review: Duty and the Beast by Chelsea Field

Duty and the Beast is the fifth book in the Eat, Pray, Die Humorous Mystery series and I loved it just as much as I have the previous books in this series! I have read this series since book one and I love that I find the characters just as wonderful as I did at the beginning, and that is including the supporting characters. In Duty and the Beast, Izzy […]

Review: When the Stars Come Out by Laura Trentham

When the Stars Come Out is the fifth book in the Cottonbloom series and what drew me to this story was that the main character Willa was a mechanic. That is an unusual occupation for a female character to have and I was interested to see if she was a mechanic in name only in order to make the story different or if she truly played the part. I was […]

Review: Indecent Exposure by Tessa Bailey

Indecent Exposure is the second book in The Academy series and I just love this series!! This book can be read as a standalone but I love the fact that I had read the first book in this series, Disorderly Conduct, because it gave me much enjoyment to see how Charlie and Ever’s relationship has grown while reading this story. There is also the matter of Charlie’s older brother’s secret […]

Review: Love the Wine You’re With by Brooke E. Wayne

Love the Wine You’re With is the second book in the Vineyard Pleasures series and it absolutely can be read as a standalone book. There is enough explanation of what took place in the previous book that you are not left feeling like you’re missing the bigger picture, which is actually quite lovely. In this story, when Julien showed up to his cousin’s party the last thing he was expecting […]

Review: Twenty-Seven Tiered Almond Cake by Amber Laura

Twenty-Seven Tiered Almond Cake is a fun romantic comedy novel that made me laugh out loud at several points through the book. The main character Charlie was a complete pushover for her sister Erin and had managed to land herself in a dire situation when her sister announced her engagement. Despite not wanting her sister to get married to the guy she had just met, Charlie still agreed to be […]

Review with Excerpt & Giveaway: Cowboy Stole My Heart by Soraya Lane

Review: Cowboy Stole My Heart is the first book in the River Ranch series and it was exactly what I was expecting and that made me happy. This is a book that I loved and series I am absolutely going to continue reading! The characters in this book were memorable and the kind of characters I would want more of. They were flawed, honest, witty, sarcastic and even the animals in […]

Review: A Wedding At Two Love Lane by Kieran Kramer

A Wedding at Two Love Lane is the second book in the Two Love Lane series and I really liked Greer and Ford’s characters in this story. Greer may have worked at an agency that brought love into the lives of their clients but Greer herself had accepted that maybe love was not for her. After all she had already had the perfect guy but she knew that he was […]

Review: Boss Unwavering: An Enemies to Lovers Romance by Nicole R. Locker

Boss Unwavering is the third book in the Boss series. Each book in this series can be read as a standalone but you would get more from the books if you read them in series order. Characters from the previous books make appearances throughout Boss Unwavering but you don’t have to be familiar with them to enjoy the story. It would just give you a better understanding of the family type […]

Review: Christmas for the Byrds by Ember Raine Winters

I loved that this story, Christmas for the Byrds, was able to take a tragic event that occurred before the holidays and still managed to keep some of the Christmastime feel to it. My heart was shattered for all the characters in this story. As a mom, my heart was torn for these children who had lost their parents so suddenly. As a best friend, I was gutted for the […]

Novella Review: Follow the Snowflakes by Angelina Kerner

Review: Follow the Snowflakes is Christmastime novella that also incorporates other traditions than what you would normally expect with a Christmas story. I also really enjoyed that the Author included pictures at the end of the story that depicted scenes from the story but are meant to be colored if you’d like. That was pretty darn cool! Follow the Snowflakes is told from the perspective of the main character Cat, […]

Review: The Art of Running in Heels by Rachel Gibson

The Art of Running is Heels is the seventh book in the Chinooks Hockey Team series and a perfect read for fans of television series such as Bachelor. Although this is not a story about being a contestant who is actively trying to land the man. Actually, Lexie Kowalsky was the winning bachelorette and this story is about what happens to the woman who was about to get married to […]

For those of you who believe in fate or destiny this story is exactly what you will love to read. Lives Collide is more than just a collision between the lives of two people. It is a tethering of two souls who never realized that they were meant to be together. Lisa Schmitt was a teenager when an accident occurred that left her without a mother and with a bag […]

Review: The Simple Soul of Susan by Noel Branham

When reading the synopsis, you may think this story is a simple friends to lovers romance but The Simple Soul of Susan is more than a simple love story. This story starts when Susan is a teenager in high school dealing with typical high school drama. For Susan though she has an extra caveat to deal with because her best friend is the most popular guy in school that all […]

Review: Rugged Texas Cowboy by Lora Leigh

Rugged Texas Cowboy contains two novellas in one book. The first novella is titled Cowboy and the Captive and the second novella is titled Cowboy and the Thief. I will be honest and say that I set the book down after about twenty percent into the first novella and declared it a book that I was not going to finish. I picked this book back up again the next day though […]

Review: Mistletoe Magic by Amanda Siegrist

What a sweet story Mistletoe Magic was! I was not sure at first how I felt about Officer Aiden Crowl because he was quite a jerk. I loved Theresa Brennen’s character though. She was a sweet small-town girl who may not have had the best of opportunities but she made do with what she had. Despite growing up on the wrong side of town she was not jaded and was satisfied […]
