Review: Untouched by Alexa Riley

Review: Untouched by Alexa Riley

Untouched should be re-titled “Un-Plotted.” I can’t blame anyone but myself at this point. No one told me to keep borrowing AR’s romances. I admit that I have read damn near everything she has written and I keep reading the new ones, so…I share the blame in this for sure…. Read more »

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: Lumberjack (A Real Man #1) by Jenika Snow

Review: Lumberjack (A Real Man #1) by Jenika Snow

Soooo, this happened (You know, I feel like I’m saying this a lot lately). I learned about Lumberjack randomly on GR and someone mentioned it was quick (though eye-rolling) and on KU. SO I took the plunge! It is quick though eye-rolling. In fact, the quick relationship and the brevity… Read more »

Review: Gossamer Wing (Steam and Seduction #1) by Delphine Dryden

Welcome back to Clean Up Week at Books, Life & Wine! Today we are getting rid of Gossamer Wing by Delphine Dryden because…well…to be honest, I was bored. So. I have seriously enjoyed a decent handful of Delphine Dryden’s work. In fact, Ms Dryden was my first “real” BDSM focused… Read more »

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: Bunny Tales – Behind Closed Doors at the Playboy Mansion by Izabella St. James

Review: Bunny Tales – Behind Closed Doors at the Playboy Mansion by Izabella St. James

Let me start with some honesty: Bunny Tales is not my typical sort of read. I became interested in reading Bunny Tales because I totally used to watch The Girls Next Door which starred Kendra Wilkinson, Holly Madison and Bridget Marquardt. When I started watching it, my curiosity was set… 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: Curvy by Alexa Riley

Review: Curvy by Alexa Riley

SO. This one gets 2.5 stars for the cover and the heroine’s physical description alone. The cover is HOT HOT HOT and I love the fact that the Misses Riley have made the majority of their heroines with the curves of typical women and that they are worshiped. BUT. I… 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: Cleat Chaser by Celia Aaron & Sloane Howell

Review: Cleat Chaser by Celia Aaron & Sloane Howell

I’m not sure what to say. I…picked this up because reasons but the read was not enjoyable. I spent most of the time rolling my eyes at it all, tbh. There was an amazing amount of insta-love/insta-lust that I did.not.buy. in the least. I rolled my eyes every time these… Read more »
