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 »

Review: Pulling Her Trigger (Ghost Riders MC #1) by Alexa Riley

Review: Pulling Her Trigger (Ghost Riders MC #1) by Alexa Riley

I think I’ve become numb. I’ve read waaay too much AR at this point. I need an intervention. So. This book. It’s AR’s version of a motorcycle club (MC) book – but “safe” (meaning no cheating, rape, abuse, and an HEA). For those who don’t read MC books, imagine the… Read more »

Review: Lassoing the Virgin Mail Order Bride by Alexa Riley

Review: Lassoing the Virgin Mail Order Bride by Alexa Riley

So, this happened. LOL What can I say? It’s typical Alexa Riley: dirty, full of insta-love and no real characterizations. Strangely, I’ve liked this one more than the others by her I’ve read lately. AR churns romances out but it might be time for her to slow her roll a… Read more »

Review: Feral Sins (The Phoenix Pack #1) by Suzanne Wright *light spoilers*

Note: The cover showing on this review is not the cover for the edition I read. I just like this cover better. Another Note: This review is for the 1st edition of this book. There are massive differences between the SPA edition (this review) and the edited TradPub edition. Now… Read more »

Review: Wolf Signs (Granite Lake Wolves #1) by Vivian Arend

Review: Wolf Signs (Granite Lake Wolves #1) by Vivian Arend

I received a free copy of Wolf Signs from Kobo (not Amazon!) on 13-Oct-2015 meaning this book lasted five (5) months on Mt. TBR. I do not remember what encouraged me to grab this copy – I have to assume that I saw it advertised somewhere. Wolf Signs is the… Read more »

Review: Burn (Dark in You #1) by Suzanne Wright

Review: Burn (Dark in You #1) by Suzanne Wright

So much info-dumping going on here that I had to check to make sure I wasn’t carrying stuff for other people. So, I cannot remember where I first heard about Burn. In all honesty, it could be GR’s silly recommendation engine because I read Burn for Me by Ilona Andrews… 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 »

Review: Snow and Mistletoe by Alexa Riley

Review: Snow and Mistletoe by Alexa Riley

Snow and Mistletoe is a bonus book received with purchase of PS… You’re Mine. Snow and Mistletoe…reminded me a bit of some Harlequin Romances I’ve read in the past…and a lot of Owning the Beast by Ms Riley. I enjoyed Snow and Mistletoe for what it was but it was… Read more »

Review: PS… You’re Mine by Alexa Riley

Review: PS… You’re Mine by Alexa Riley

PS… You’re Mine caught my eye for two reasons: 1) I’ve read a lot of Alexa Riley so she’s on my radar and 2) I love this cover. Alexa Riley seems to have gotten covers designed with some pretty fantastic models lately. First there was the model on the cover… 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 »
