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: Freshman by Madison Faye

Review: Freshman by Madison Faye

Wow. So. How did we end up here? O_O Twice Driven and Kindle Unlimited. That’s how. Freshman was one of the three free books in the back of Twice Driven. Freshman (like Twice Driven) sounds like an Alexa Riley book. It is not. What Freshman is is poorly edited. And… 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 »

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: Tackled by Sabrina Paige

Review: Tackled by Sabrina Paige

I decided to read Tackled because I read and loved The Deal by Elle Kennedy. The Deal starred a popular “star” jock and an incredibly smart heroine who tutored him. The hero in The Deal cared about his future and his education. He was having a great time being a… 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*

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: Pack Challenge (Magnus Pack #1) by Shelly Laurenston

Review: Pack Challenge (Magnus Pack #1) by Shelly Laurenston

I decided to read Pack Challenge after finishing the anthologies Howl For It and When He was Bad. I found both of Shelly Laurenston’s works to be HILARIOUS. Shelly Laurenston is not a NTM author: I started reading Shelly Laurenston/G.A. Aiken quite a few years ago. I started with Shelly… 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 »
