This 2 star rating hurts me more than Eve Langlais, I’m sure. I’ve noticed that almost everyone loves this book. I loved the first book in this series and I’m also an Eve Langlais fan. But this book felt so wrong to me. It…bothered me quite a bit. As usual… Read more »

Again, this is a very short story. I have to honestly admit that I purchased and downloaded this entire series without paying attention to the page length. More fool me. That’s $5 for less than 150 pages. I feel like Booby-the-damn-fool. Back to this story. It was cute but like… Read more »
This was really really cute. But there was something missing… This is a really sweet “friends to lovers” trope romance. I love “friends to lovers” so my issue is certainly not the trope. In thinking about this novella, I think my biggest issue is how quickly Linc and Bailey started… Read more »
It took me forever to finish this book, but I really enjoyed myself! EIKAL (as it is fondly called) is a love letter (essay style) to romance books and their readers. It’s very much preaching to the choir but it could also (possibly) persuade non-romance readers as to the benefits… Read more »
Wow. This book? So depressing. Sooooo depressing. I bought this book via a rec from Smart Bitches, Trashy Books…but actually from reading Everything I Know About Love I Learned from Romance Novels. Damn. This book makes me re-think any contemporary rec she/the site gives. Cause I pretty much hated this… Read more »
I loved this book. Simply loved it. Review in process. I may edit this review later. I’m having a problem with this review because I enjoyed it so much that I don’t want to sound like a gushing teenaged fangirl. Bare with me, please.
I have to admit to a weakness for soups. A major weakness. A weakness so strong that I started eating pork again (after a 10+ year hiatus) so I could get a tomato based crab soup mixed with a cream based crab soup. Yeah. It’s like that. This book drew… Read more »
“Okay, Shane,” Agnes said as Brenda’s clock gonged midnight. “I got Joey in the kitchen, a cop in the front hall, a dead body in the basement, and you in my bedroom. Where do you want to start?” — Agnes and the Hitman, page 23 What happens when you… Read more »
One of the best things about reading Regency and historical romances is the tension that builds up between the hero and heroine due to their environment. The couple can only meet here and there, steal kisses (among other things). They have to hide any impropriety from all prying eyes. I… Read more »
I normally enjoy Cherise Sinclair’s work but this story unsettled me a little. I felt that the problems the heroine had were too deep for a few spankings and some hugs. In a way, I felt that the sexual abuse the heroine had to deal with was trivialized. Two Stars!
