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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 will warn you that the main protagonist starts as a spoiled little rich girl but if you stick with the story you will be rewarded with a steamy romance, great character […]

The Watcher by Bella Jewel

Suspense, thrill, and romance? Check, check, check. I loved this story! The Watcher is the kind of book that you read and pray that it never happens to you! The start of this novel had my heart pumping and it did not stop from there! The story is told in the present but there are creepy and suspenseful flashbacks that tell us readers what Marlie suffered through. It is like […]

I always appreciate it when an author tackles difficult and sensitive subjects. Crazy in Love is a unique romance that does just that but also shows such humanity. I just love this story! To say that it hits all the emotional feels is an understatement. This book will grab you from the start and does not let go of your attention until the end. Such a good read! In this story, […]

Reckless Treasure by Cecily Wolfe

When I read Reckless Treasure, I had to take some time to really think about my feelings on this book. In western culture, we really dig our happily ever after’s and this story had a HEA but not what you would have expected. I decided that I really appreciated how this story was written and felt that it was a realistically told tale of how life can be for a […]

Pipe Dreams by Sarina Bowen

It is official! I am a huge fan of author Sarina Bowen’s Brooklyn Bruisers series! I love how she is able to blend sports, friendship and romance into a humorous story that hits all the emotional feels. That is pretty spectacular because to be honest I care nothing for sports. 😉 Pipe Dreams is a second chance romance. It is also where we get to learn more about character Lauren […]

Boss Unyielding: A Secret Baby Office Romance by Nicole R. Locker

Boss Unyielding: A Secret Baby Office Romance is all about desires. Desire to resist while at the same time desiring to have. I think that this story did a great job of balancing out the two before tipping the scales. When Farren had her final interview scheduled with Mr. Rayner at Rayner Technologies she was expecting it to be intense. What she was not expecting was for her to be […]

True to You by Becky Wade

True to You is the first book in the Bradford Sisters Romance series. This series has a prequel called Then Came You where the background history of the Bradford’s beginnings is explained. It is not a necessary read in order to enjoy this story as the Author does a good job of explaining what you need to know in this book, but if you were interested in reading this series […]

Charmed by Charlie by Amanda Uhl

The Office meets Sixteen Candles! Charmed by Charlie is a sweet romantic comedy that is entertaining and heart-warming. From the start, you can’t help but be charmed by Charlie’s character. He is the total package but he also actually seems to care about what happens at the Reynolds Paint Company, the place where Val works. Val is not so thrilled about Charlie’s presence at the company though because he represents […]

Didn’t Get Frazzled by David Z. Hirsch

I like to challenge myself from time to time to step out and read something new. I have never read a medical fiction book before, which Didn’t Get Frazzled truly is. This story follows around Seth Levine as he navigates the world of being a medical student in New York City. This book is set in the early ninety’s and is written with the right proportions between all the medical […]

Someone Like You by Lauren Layne

I had seen this book somewhere when I was looking at upcoming books and thought that it sounded interesting. When I got time to actually read it, well it was “meh” for me. There are two main characters, Lincoln and Daisy. Lincoln’s backstory is creative. Not something I had read before and I liked that his personal life was actually a well hidden secret. Not because I think it should […]
