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

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 […]

Where Hearts Meet by Maureen Driscoll

When reading the synopsis for Where Hearts Meet that was the sentence that caught my eye in particular and I knew I had to read this book. I was curious to see how Arabella would go about convincing Jonathan that he, indeed, did not need a wife. Why did Jonathan need to advertise for a wife in the first place? I was delighted to get my hands on a copy […]

Merely a Marriage by Jo Beverley

Let’s start with what I did like. The cover is beautiful and a bit saucy. Alrighty, now we move on to what did not work for me. The main character, Ariana Boxstall. At the start of this story I was just getting to know her and she was okay. I liked that she was looking out for her family and stood up for what she felt was right. I even […]

Taming a Savage Gentleman by Tammy Andresen

I do enjoy the Taming the Heart series and this addition is another gem! When I read the synopsis of Taming a Savage Gentleman and realized that this was the story of Tom Maddox I was all in. I adore the Maddox family and was excited to see how the events play out! As this story plays on the background information from the previous books you will get more of […]

Crazy in Love by Annabelle Costa

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, […]

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 […]

The Danger with Love is a romantic novel filled with humor, spice, and a dash of suspense!

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 […]

Hart of Hers by Annie Arcane

Hart of Hers is the third in book in the Cale & Mickey series. This is a series that you will need to read from the start as they build upon each other. I have been a fan of this series since book one! This is absolutely due to the storyline and the characters, they are so unique. With each new novella, I learn more about these characters and they […]

Saving Mercy by Abbie Roads

Saving Mercy is the third book that I have read from Author Abbie Roads and she has never failed to shock and awe me with her plots. I swear I almost read this book while having my fingers spread over my eyes at certain points! I know, I know…not possible, but if it was then I would have done it! There is no easing into this story. It just grabs […]

Deception in Emeralds by Laura Landon, Review with Excerpt

Deception in Emeralds is a sweet little regency romance. Although it is part of a series it absolutely can be read as a stand-alone. I did not feel that I was missing anything by not having read the previous books.  There is a traitor to the Crown that has proved most nefarious and slippery. Having lost several agents already, this mission has been classified as need to know information only […]

Taming a Rake into a Lord by Tammy Andresen

I love it when a series will bring back characters from previous installments and give them a true part in the story. Taming a Rake into a Lord includes the main characters from the previous three books in the Taming the Heart series. Which I just loved. They give the book a family/friendship vibe that is heartwarming and carries through until the end. In order to enjoy this book, it […]

A Lady in Disguise by Sandra Byrd

While reading the synopsis, I thought that the character of Miss Gillian Young was going to be sleuthing out clues to her father’s death. Something more along the lines of a female Sherlock Holmes. The investigation was nothing like that. Mostly it is Gillian asking questions to the police and others in hopes of learning something substantial. There is danger that seems to follow her around and the suspense is […]

Wanted and Wired by Vivien Jackson

This book is everything the synopsis promised and more. It was perfect for me! I love science fiction and the idea of technologically enhanced super humans just hits all my yes buttons. This book is exactly what I would find on the Syfy channel—well maybe waaay late night Syfy channel. It has quite the sexy times throughout the story. So not really “prime time” material but entirely enjoyable to read. […]
