As Bright As Heaven starts in 1918 just before the onset of the Spanish flu pandemic and is told in different time periods. Some being month to month then the narration will skip a few years and then move around some more. This story begins after the devastating loss of Henry, the Bright’s youngest child. His death had profoundly affected this family and although Pauline Bright had made it through […]

Review: Flamingo Road by Sasscer Hill

I bought Flamingo Road a few months past because it looked like an interesting book. I was intrigued that it revolved around crime, horses, and the Thoroughbred Racing Protective Bureau. The TRPB is a real agency, which I knew absolutely nothing about before I read this book. If you want to check it out here is a LINK to the home page of the organization. Pretty cool, right? Fia McKee […]

Review: Mary Poser by Angel A

The first thing I must say is I love the play on words for this title. Spanish for butterfly: Mariposa and the Title: Mary Poser.  Too cute! If that was never the intention well then, I think I am clever anyway. 🤣 Mary Poser is written as a conventional southern woman. She comes from a religious family with her father being the local Pastor. Her background has led her to be […]


Wicked Takeover by Tina Donahue

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 […]


Eye Candy by Jessica Lemmon

Eye Candy by Jessica Lemmon

Eye Candy is a friends to lovers romance but from the start there is a spark between the two main characters. So, there is no awkwardness regarding “all of a sudden noticing that your friend is attractive” type of trope. 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 […]

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 […]


Crazy in Love by Annabelle Costa

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, […]

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 […]

Think Before You Speak by D.A. Bale

This is the second installment in The Bartender Babe Chronicles and I found it to be witty, humorous, and a real page turner. I do not know what it is about the character of Vicki Bohanan but she just keeps me entertained page after page. It might be that she is not perfect and that although she makes plenty of mistakes she always wants the best for those she cares […]


Three Fat Singletons by J.M. Bartholomew

Three Fat Singletons by J.M. Bartholomew

When you read this story, you need to keep in mind is that it is written in British English and it is heavy in slang. This story follows around three main characters who share a bond of friendship. The main thread running through this story is that they are all looking for love and in the case of this book, it is in all the wrong places. The real draw […]


Look Before You Jump by D.A. Bale

Look Before You Jump by D.A. Bale

A big-mouth, partying Southerner with more guts than brains at times is not exactly my favorite type of character but Vicky Bohanan is a quirky character that has a flavor of her own. Her character comes off as having issues with her Dad and pretty much every member of the society she grew up in but when you get into the story you see that she really has a problem […]

Love Literary Style by Karin Gillespie

Entertaining, romantic and an emotional delight. I wanted to read this book because the idea of a literary author and an inexperience romance author coming together sounded like a train wreck in the making and I was curious to see how the author would make this work. Turns out that I thoroughly enjoyed reading this story. Ms. Gillespie did a fantastic job of bringing these two worlds together. Laurie Lee […]

Burning September by Melissa Simonson

Compelling, engaging, and emotionally provoking! When I started to read this story I was not sure how I was going to feel about it. After all, everything is explained right up front but it is truly about the journey of Kat who essentially grew up in the shadow of her older sister Caroline. Reading this, I was totally engaged from the start. I loved this story! Katya is the main […]

Infamous by Lori Sizemore

Believable, charismatic and entertaining! This storyline is not one you would run across that often and I love that. It is written as realistically as I can imagine. After all I am not familiar with the lifestyles of the rich and famous 🙂 but I could see that this is how it might go down. This story is told from the alternating viewpoints of Justine and Sawyer. I love, love, […]

Merry Me by Amanda Siegrist

Charming, poignant and a real page turner! First off I just love the title. Great word play and it is an adorable book. This a sweet little Christmas love story that also has elements of anger, loss, romance, humor and lust. Just an all over feel good story that keeps you entertained from start to finish. Lynn’s character was written as a woman who is trying to make ends meet […]
