Sometimes when I sit down to write a review…I don’t know what to say. Usually its for one of two reasons: either the book was so entertaining I don’t know where to to start…or the book was so underwhelming that I barely remember reading it. A Pregnancy, a Party &… Read more »

Review: Magic Bites (Kate Daniels #1) by Ilona Andrews *light spoilers*

I’m a huge Ilona Andrews fangurl. I blame Ala for this, lol. Ala kept saying how good Kate Daniels was and how much he missed Kate when he finished the series, etc. While I tried to stay away, Ala enjoyed it so much that I picked Magic Bites up. This… Read more »

Review: Broken Open (The Hurley Boys #2) by Lauren Dane

I loved The Best Kind of Trouble so when Broken Open was announced, I was rather excited. THEN I saw the cover for Broken Open and I swooned. Every once in a while publishers get covers right and this one is pretty much on the money! That BEARD. Her HAIR…. Read more »

Review: A Mere Formality by Ilona Andrews

LOLOLOLOL! Oh. My. GOD. I wish yall could see the goofy look on my (very bright red) face right now! When Ilona Andrews said that this book was a long dirty joke, she wasn’t lying. O_O There’s no way to really explain it without killing it but this was HILARIOUS…. Read more »
