Review: Branding the Virgin by Alexa Riley (Cowboys & Virgins #1)

Review: Branding the Virgin by Alexa Riley (Cowboys & Virgins #1)

Branding the Virgin is pretty cute but it barely reminds me of Lassoing the Virgin Mail Order Bride – which I appreciate. I want to say that Branding the Virgin has a lot more plot in it than most of the recent AR works which makes me excited! *big grin*… Read more »

Review: Mine to Take by  Alexa Kaye

Review: Mine to Take by Alexa Kaye

I learned about Mine to Take and Alexa Kaye via Amazon as a recommendation for Kindle Unlimited. This is my first Alexa Kaye book but it feels rather…familiar. So far? It’s 75% Lassoing the Virgin Mail Order Bride and 25% Claimed By The Mountain Man. Though the dirty parts aren’t… Read more »

Review: Roping The Virgin (Cowboys & Virgins #2) by Alexa Riley

Review: Roping The Virgin (Cowboys & Virgins #2) by Alexa Riley

Ok. So, first I want to say that the title for this book is a little to close to the title of one of her previous books Lassoing the Virgin Mail Order Bride. So. Did not enjoy this one. Alexa Riley seems to be my crack…but I think I got… Read more »

Review: Giving Chase (Chase Brothers #1) by Lauren Dane

Review: Giving Chase (Chase Brothers #1) by Lauren Dane

Note: I received my free copy of Giving Chase in June 2011. Giving Chase has been on Mt. TBR for 5 years and 1 month so it qualifies for my Mt. TBR challenge AND my Kindle Freebie Freakout Challenge!! Giving Chase was pretty “meh” for me. I didn’t care for… Read more »

Review: Under Locke by Mariana Zapata

Review: Under Locke by Mariana Zapata

Mariana Zapata is the Queen of High Tension/Slow Burn and she broke me with this one. Though I have to say that the blurb for Under Locke was not well done. It does not really explain that Under Locke is a safe MC book and that Dex is a member… Read more »

Review: Freight Trained by Sarah Curtis

Review: Freight Trained by Sarah Curtis

Freight Trained was cute but very forgettable. While reading Freight Trained, I kept feeling like the book was on the cusp of being really good but just couldn’t quite get over the final hump into greatness. So. It was good. The characterization(s) was ok – not great but ok. Cole’s… Read more »

Review: Sold to the Hitman by Alexis Abbott

Review: Sold to the Hitman by Alexis Abbott

DNF at 23% blah blah blah. Sold to the Hitman was…so incredibly boring that I couldn’t force myself to read past 23%. I thought the heroine was…bland, boring and forgettable. I was a little more interested in the hero but he was boring, too. Sometimes Kindle Unlimited leads to this… 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: 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: Raging Hard by B.B. Hamel

Review: Raging Hard by B.B. Hamel

Raging Hard was a complete dud for me. I really didn’t enjoy it very much. The smexy times were meh. The heroine wasn’t the brightest bulb and the hero was a first class jerk. I found nothing particularly redeeming or interesting about this book. I was surprised, however, at the… Read more »
