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 […]

The Day of the Duchess by Sarah MacLean

Second chance romances can be a hit or a miss with me. I had not read the previous installments of this series so I had no previous emotions one way or the other on the demise of the relationship for these two characters. Note that I said previous, after reading this book I have all sorts of emotions regarding this story now. I can say that this is absolutely one […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
