Review: The Vampire’s Mail Order Bride (Nocturne Falls #1) by Kristen Painter

Review: The Vampire’s Mail Order Bride (Nocturne Falls #1) by Kristen Painter

I decided to read The Vampire’s Mail Order Bride because I’d read a sample of The Shifter Romances The Writer which I head of via a friend on GR. I enjoyed the short sample of The Shifter Romances The Writer that I read so I got a copy of book… Read more »

Review: Rebel Mechanics (Rebel Mechanics #1) by Shanna Swendson

Welcome to Clean Up Week at Books, Life & Wine! This is a week in which I am cleaning up and clearing OUT some of my lingering open reads. I have a LOT of books that I’m “currently reading” right now – some of which have been open for over… Read more »

Review: Wicked Cravings (The Phoenix Pack #2) by Suzanne Wright

Review: Wicked Cravings (The Phoenix Pack #2) by Suzanne Wright

Well. This is the second installment in The Phoenix Pack series and…it was very much like book one Feral Sins. The two books are so closely linked in plot that they could almost be the same book. Both books have: -Heroine who has a very damaged wolf that is only… Read more »

Review: Guarding His Obsession by Alexa Riley

Review: Guarding His Obsession by Alexa Riley

OMG. I HATED the heroine in this book. Hated. I hated every.single.thing. about the heroine, for the most part. Every time she had dialogue I wanted to rip off her lips and sew her mouth-hole shut. Permanently. The aggravation I felt knew no bounds. In fact, I was completely unable… Read more »

Review: Expecting the Earl’s Baby (Summer Weddings #1) by Jessica Gilmore

Review: Expecting the Earl’s Baby (Summer Weddings #1) by Jessica Gilmore

Three “meh” stars I picked up Expecting the Earl’s Baby randomly at my most recent library trip. I haven’t read a lot of HQNs lately so I thought I’d grab a few to try again. Expecting the Earl’s Baby is…rather sweet. There is no on page sex in this not-quite-secret… Read more »

Review: Mr and Mrs (Alexa Riley Promises #1) by Alexa Riley

Review: Mr and Mrs (Alexa Riley Promises #1) by Alexa Riley

Let me start by being 100% honest: I disliked this book quite a bit. This is a new series by Alexa Riley where it seems she’ll be rehashing old Harlequin Romance tropes. Amnesia + a secret baby is most certainly an old school HR trope. And I always hated it…. Read more »

Review: Twice Driven by Madison Faye

Review: Twice Driven by Madison Faye

So. I picked this one up because I read a shitton of Alexa Riley and this sounded a lot like an Alexa Riley book. It sounds like an Alexa Riley book…but it doesn’t read like an Alexa Riley book. At all. O_O Here’s the thing: Alexa Riley writes the same… Read more »

When He Was Bad Anthology Review: Wicked Ways by Cynthia Eden

When He Was Bad Anthology Review: Wicked Ways by Cynthia Eden

Wicked Ways was…boring as hell. I had to force myself to finish this one. I have to wonder if I would have enjoyed Wicked Ways more if it didn’t come on the heels of Miss Congeniality. Miss Congeniality slaughtered Wicked Ways and left it lying there in the mud, lol…. Read more »

Anthology Review – Red Hot Beginnings: Flourish (House of Crimson and Clover #0.7) by Sarah M. Cradit

In April 2015 I received a free copy of the anthology Red Hot Beginnings. Red Hot Beginnings is an anthology with fourteen (14) different full length series openers. I decided to start reading Red Hot Beginnings because it was an anthology and I am hoping to find a few good… Read more »

Review: Temporarily Yours (Shillings Agency #1) by Diane Alberts

Review: Temporarily Yours (Shillings Agency #1) by Diane Alberts

Temporarily Yours is a short and sweet but bland. The characters did not make much of an impact. The hero and heroine both have very minor family issues: they don’t know how to talk to their [beloved] family. The hero also has some PTSD-like issues stemming from losing his best… Read more »
