12 Shades of Surrender Anthology Review: Seven Day Loan (The Original Sinners 0.5) by Tiffany Reisz  *spoilers*

12 Shades of Surrender Anthology Review: Seven Day Loan (The Original Sinners 0.5) by Tiffany Reisz *spoilers*

Note: I should call this “The Exorcism of Ellie” rather than a book review. Eleanor’s story really made me sad and the character has lingered in my mind. This is my attempt to excise her presence. Read at your own risk. Gah! I don’t know what to say about this… Read more »

Review: Keeping Her (Keeping Her #1) by Kelly Lucille

Review: Keeping Her (Keeping Her #1) by Kelly Lucille

**WARNING** This review will be long, ranty and filled with possibly eye-bleeding quotes. Read at your own risk. NOTE: A lot of other people really enjoyed this book. Please take that into consideration while reading my – admittedly ranting – review. Keeping Her is author Kelly Lucille’s debut novel and… Read more »

Review: Vengeful in Love (Billionaires in Love #1) by Nadia Lee

Review: Vengeful in Love (Billionaires in Love #1) by Nadia Lee

Gaaah! Vengeful in Love hit my major pet peeve in Romance: it has a deception based plotline. I HATE deception plotlines and Vengeful in Love has it in spades. *rolls eyes* The deception in this book starts at the very beginning when the hero decides to hide his association with… Read more »

Review: Perfect Partners (Love Unexpected) by Carly Phillips

Review: Perfect Partners (Love Unexpected) by Carly Phillips

  Perfect Partners was…a rather “meh” category romance. I have no strong feelings about the book, the characters or the plot. The plot was is rather formulaic: Plot moppet’s parents (the hero’s brother and the heroine’ sister) are killed in an accident, orphaning the plot moppet. The heroine and hero… Read more »

Review: How to Catch a Wild Viscount by Tessa Dare

Review: How to Catch a Wild Viscount by Tessa Dare

I’ve heard of Tessa Dare previously but How to Catch a Wild Viscount is the first book I’ve read by Ms Dare. Strangely enough, reading Lauren Dane’s The Best Kind of Trouble spurred me to read this short. The heroine, Natalie, in The Best Kind of Trouble is a librarian… Read more »

Review: The Heat is On (Out of Uniform #6) by Elle Kennedy

Review: The Heat is On (Out of Uniform #6) by Elle Kennedy

Meh. There was a lot to like about The Heat is On…but there was also a lot I didn’t like. And frankly, I’m going to chalk part of it up as a learning experience. The Heat is On is one of those rare romance books where gender roles are slightly… Read more »

Review: Gotcha! (Tall, Hot & Texan #1) by Christie Craig

Review: Gotcha! (Tall, Hot & Texan #1) by Christie Craig

Gotcha! is the second Christie Craig book that I’ve read, the first being Divorced, Desperate and Delicious. I enjoyed both Divorced, Desperate and Delicious and Gotcha! – but they are both rather similar books. Both books have a police officer hero and a divorced 30-40 something heroine. Both books have… Read more »

Review: Parlor Games Anthology – Palor Games by Leda Swann

Review: Parlor Games Anthology – Palor Games by Leda Swann

  Accck! This one, I really disliked. Parlor Games was the third book I read using my Scribd trial. Scribd introduced me to Jess Michaels via the book Everything Forbidden – and suggested this title since I read Everything Forbidden. As of today this book is on sale at Kobo… Read more »

Review: The Best Kind of Trouble (The Hurley Boys #1) by Lauren Dane

Review: The Best Kind of Trouble (The Hurley Boys #1) by Lauren Dane

I loved this book. LOVED. I can’t put my finger on exactly what touched me so much about The Best Kind of Trouble. Like Mary Poppins, it was practically perfect in every way. The Best Kind of Trouble is a reunited lovers story – the best kind, at that. Natalie… Read more »
