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 […]


Edge of the Future by Andria Stone

Edge of the Future by Andria Stone

What drew my interest to Edge of the Future was that it was military science fiction, a debut, and a new author! I am always on the lookout for a good sci-fi read and this book looked just right 😊. Once I started reading it what really got my blood pumping was that it has cyborgs, medical nano-technology that is able to heal just about every sickness and injury, hi-tech […]

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 […]

Midnight at the Bright Ideas Bookstore by Matthew J. Sullivan

As a book reviewer, I am almost always drawn to stories involving bookstores or libraries. When I came across Midnight at the Bright Ideas Bookstore I was of course drawn to it. Adding the murder-mystery just made it even more enticing. Also helps that the cover is very eye catching. What I thought was going to be a cozy mystery turned into a true murder-mystery style story with red herrings, […]

Smugglers & Scones by Morgan C. Talbot

Smugglers & Scones was a delightful cozy mystery that was filled with adventure, mystery, and murder most foul. This setting for this story is in a small, quaint town named Seacrest. This town is nestled on a narrow strip of land between the Pacific Ocean and the coast of Oregon. In this sleepy town is an establishment called the Moorehaven Bed and Breakfast Inn. This inn is unique in that […]

Review: Forgotten by Neven Carr

Forgotten was just lovely! It is a superb tale that is intricately woven with details and developed characters. This story takes place over a matter of days but the start of it all stretches back over a decade. Claudia has never really been bothered by her lack of memory from before the age of seven but it quickly becomes apparent that there is something being hidden from her, something that […]

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 […]


Intricate Deceptions by Jennifer Rayes

Intricate Deceptions by Jennifer Rayes

What drew me to this story was that it involved human trafficking and that is a tough subject to tackle. Intricate Deceptions starts out with its main character Gaia waking up in a cell without any memory as to how she came to be there or where “there” even is. Gaia also quickly realizes that she is trapped and is not alone. Not only is she not alone in the […]


Only the Few by L.N. Denison

Only the Few by L.N. Denison

Only the Few was everything I was hoping for in a post-apocalyptic read. It even has a gore factor that will make you squeamish if you can’t handle the thought of cannibalistic creatures. I will freely admit that it makes me sick at the idea. This story follows the events that happened after a mass bombing, think nuclear holocaust, that manages to destroy most of the British Isles. Corporal Catherine […]

Bad to the Bone by Linda O. Johnston

Bad to the Bone is a cozy mystery that is pet oriented and the third story in the Bakery & Biscuits Mystery series. This story is written in first person with Carrie Kennersly being the narrator. There is lots of puppy love throughout this story and I mean that literally. With each character in this story there is inevitably a doggy companion. This is a must read for dog lovers! […]

The Danger with Love by Amanda Siegrist

The Danger with Love is a romantic novel filled with humor, spice, and a dash of suspense! Sarafina has spent her adult life living out the cliché “always the bridesmaid, never the bride” and she is done! She has vowed that after her best friend’s wedding she is retiring her services as a bridesmaid. She will only attend a wedding strictly as a guest or as the bride. No more […]

Semi-Broken by Isabel Jordan

Semi-Broken is the fourth book in the Harper Hall Investigations series, a series I am absolutely in love with. This book and series has quickly become a comfort series to me. When I need a good read with some quirky but lovable characters this is definitely on the list! There is plenty of snark, sarcasm, wit, and friendly banter that happens between these characters that I just connect to them […]

Two Can Play by Kate Kessler

I loved It Takes One by Author Kate Kessler and have been seriously looking forward to reading Two Can Play. I hadn’t had the chance to buy it and when I came across this book at my local library I was thrilled. It seemed that now was the time to read this book. Audrey Harte is back and she has been put in charge of the East Coast location of […]

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 […]
