Review: The Art of Running in Heels by Rachel Gibson

The Art of Running is Heels is the seventh book in the Chinooks Hockey Team series and a perfect read for fans of television series such as Bachelor. Although this is not a story about being a contestant who is actively trying to land the man. Actually, Lexie Kowalsky was the winning bachelorette and this story is about what happens to the woman who was about to get married to […]

Review: Swollen Identity by Rich Leder

Swollen Identity is a hilarious story filled with quirky characters, near impossible comedic situations, and a mysterious case of stolen identity. Swollen Identity is the second book in the McCall & Company series and this story picks up directly after the end of the first book, Workman’s Complication. This is not a series that has to be read in series order to enjoy because there is a mystery that is […]

Review: Lives Collide by Kristina Beck

For those of you who believe in fate or destiny this story is exactly what you will love to read. Lives Collide is more than just a collision between the lives of two people. It is a tethering of two souls who never realized that they were meant to be together. Lisa Schmitt was a teenager when an accident occurred that left her without a mother and with a bag […]

Review: The Simple Soul of Susan by Noel Branham

When reading the synopsis, you may think this story is a simple friends to lovers romance but The Simple Soul of Susan is more than a simple love story. This story starts when Susan is a teenager in high school dealing with typical high school drama. For Susan though she has an extra caveat to deal with because her best friend is the most popular guy in school that all […]

Review: The Wicked Vampire by Kate Baxter

I read The Wicked Vampire with the mind frame of it being a stand-alone romance. It is the sixth book in the Last True Vampire series though and there is an overarching storyline the flows through this story as well as a romance between Sasha Ivanov and Liam Brún. I did not feel lost at any point in my reading of The Wicked Vampire. The Author does a great job […]

Review: Winter’s Siren by Krystal Jane Ruin

Winter’s Siren is a dark fantasy that was both captivating and twisted. This story follows the narrative of two characters who are opposite in every way. Devi was born out of a union that was doomed from the start. Her mother met a tragic end at the hands of her father but Devi was spared, just barely, due to her innocence. Her father made it his life’s mission to find […]

Review: Rugged Texas Cowboy by Lora Leigh

Rugged Texas Cowboy contains two novellas in one book. The first novella is titled Cowboy and the Captive and the second novella is titled Cowboy and the Thief. I will be honest and say that I set the book down after about twenty percent into the first novella and declared it a book that I was not going to finish. I picked this book back up again the next day though […]

Review: The Girl in the Tower by Katherine Arden

I truly enjoyed the prequel to this book, The Bear and the Nightingale, but this book, The Girl in the Tower, just took my breath away! I actually enjoyed it so much more!! Despite my love for this story, I could have done without like the whole disguise yourself as another gender trope. I always know it is going to end badly so I just spend most of the time […]

Review: Christmastide With My Captain by Tammy Andresen

Christmastide With My Captain is a novella starter for the A Laird to Love series. At the start of this story Lady Emilia McDougal was considering how happy she was for her female relatives that had all recently found love but she was also a little jealous. She was tired of being overlooked and wished for someone special for herself. The thought of having to spend Christmastide surrounded by people […]

Review: Sins of the Fathers by A.J. McCarthy

Sins of the Fathers was a nicely done mystery that had elements of intrigue, suspense, and danger. The main character Charlene Butler owns a pub that she adores and everything in her life was as it should be. Though, due to her commitment to her business she did not have many close relationships with the exception of her employee Frank but she was okay with that. So, when she received […]

Review: The Edge of the Blade by Jeffe Kennedy

The Edge of the Blade is the second book in The Uncharted Realms series as well as the fifth book in The Twelve Kingdoms series. The Uncharted Realms series is a spin off from The Twelve Kingdoms series and it takes place after magic has broken free over the Twelve Kingdoms. I would recommend reading the first three books in the Kingdoms series before starting the first book in the […]

Review with Excerpt: Flame in the Dark by Faith Hunter

Flame in the Dark was such a fun read for me! I love the paranormal investigation team PSYLed Unit 18 and in this story, they are back and in full swing. This story starts out smack dab in the middle of an investigation. There had just been a shooting at a senator’s house and Nell is cutting her teeth as a full-fledged probationary paranormal investigator. Nell is officially done with […]

Review: To the Duke, with Love by Amelia Grey

To the Duke, with Love is the second book in The Rakes of St. James series. The premise of this series is that a group of rather rakish friends were reading a book called ‘A Proper Gentleman’s Guide to Wooing the Perfect Lady’ for a lark and they decided that there were going to do a prank. They wrote to twelve girls individually who were going to be having their […]

Review: The Romanov Ransom by Clive Cussler & Robin Burcell

The Romanov Ransom is the ninth book in the Fargo Adventure series and it is co-written with Robin Burcell. I will say that I do enjoy the pairing of Cussler and Burcell! The story is very well developed and I enjoyed the many location that this story takes us to. From the title, you would presume that this story is set around the Romanov family and set in Russia but this […]

Review: Tall, Dark & Deadly by Kharma Kelley

Tall, Dark & Deadly is the first book in the Agents of the Bureau series and it was a fun and sizzling read with a fast-paced plot. Chloë Hunter was a Dhampir, an unusual hybrid with all the strengths of a vampire but none of their weaknesses. For many years she had run with a bad crowd and had ended up on the wrong side of the law. After being […]

Review: Mischief in Mudbug by Jana Deleon

I am a huge fan of Author Jana Deleon’s cozy mysteries. Mischief in Mudbug was no exception. Sabine’s character was introduced in book one of this series and I liked her immensely. In this story, things take a turn for the worst for Sabine’s character and even though she had failed to find any family members over the past decade, she really needs to now. Sabine has had health scares […]

Review: Obsidian and Stars by Julie Eshbaugh

Obsidian and Stars is the second book in the Ivory and Bone series. I did enjoy the first book, Ivory and Bone, but this book was much more enjoyable to me. The way the story is written is beautiful and detailed. The pacing is of a slower nature but I was okay with that because this story followed around a prehistoric clan and it just felt natural to me. From the […]
