Review: Mackenzie’s Trust by Jane Blythe

Mackenzie’s Trust is the second novella from the Flashes of Fate series. In this story, I was quickly caught up in the nightmare that was Mackenzie’s reality. Let me tell you that it was not a situation I ever want to encounter myself. It was an absolutely terrifying scenario to consider! I loved how I was able to feel Mackenzie’s fear, loathing, and anxiety from the start of this short […]

Review: Haunting the Deep by Adriana Mather

I was quite interested in reading a good paranormal story and when I came across a book that not only had a paranormal element but it revolved around the Titanic, I knew I had to read it! Haunting the Deep is the second book in the How to Hang a Witch series. This is a series that I would recommend reading in series order. Although the mystery in this book […]

Review: Sunsets at Seaside by Addison Cole with Excerpt

***Check out the Blog Tour Schedule and follow along with the tour.*** Review: Sunsets at Seaside was a cute and swoony romance. I thought the setting was quite superb. I could really see the cottages nestled in between Cape Cod Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. It was a nice setting for a summertime romance. Jessica Ayers as a character was just a sweet little thing with her naivety and eagerness […]

Release Day Review: There’s Something About Vegas By Ember Raine Winters

There’s Something about Vegas is a story that took a different direction than what I have come to expect from Author Ember-Raine Winters. I thoroughly enjoy her other work and this story was no exception. The story starts with Rissa waking up in Vegas with regrets and leaving like a thief in the night. All she remembers from that night is waking up with an arm draped around her. Fast […]

Review: Going Dark by Monica McCarty

In Going Dark, Dan Warren was a gruff dive boat captain whose manners are nothing short of rude. He has no interest in taking some tree huggers out on the sea to protest a drilling rig’s presence. Dan Warren was just trying to keep a low profile, he was following orders. Dan Warren was actually Dean Baylor, the senior chief SEAL team member from the missing and presumed dead SEAL […]

Review: Shadow Reaper by Christine Feehan

Shadow Reaper is the second book in the Shadow Riders series and I love the characters from this series. The Ferraro family, they stick together through thick and thin. There are even the cousins from New York who are willing to jump in whenever help is needed. I just love the sense of familia that I get whenever I read a book from this series! In this story, Ricco Ferraro […]

Review: Take to the Limit by Dawn Ryder

I will admit that when I considered reading Take to the Limit from the Unbroken Heroes series I was a little apprehensive. The idea of a guy sleeping with two sisters and having a relationship with one of the sounded like the type of drama that I steer away from. I was beyond relieved that the Author handled that situation well and there were essentially no love triangles. Still not a […]

Review: Disorderly Conduct by Tessa Bailey

When I first saw the cover to Disorderly Conduct and read the synopsis I thought it was going to be a fun read. I mean a romance with a police cadet and a nothing serious kinda girl sounds like there is going to be a lot of humor, romance, and drama. The story starts out like I expected but as it went on it became exceedingly romantic. I was not […]

Wicked Takeover by Tina Donahue

Wicked Takeover was a wickedly naughty and romantic book. I think it walked right up to the line of romance looked over at erotica and blew it a kiss with a saucy wink. For you romantic readers who enjoy romance with plenty of sexy times and a lot of heat, this is a perfect story for you. Lauren has been unemployed for just over six months. She had a career […]

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 is a friends to lovers romance but from the start there is a spark between the two main characters.

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 […]
