Review: Shielding Lily by Alexa Riley

Review: Shielding Lily by Alexa Riley

I liked Shielding Lily! Unlike a lot of other recently AR books, Shielding Lily is longer and has a lot more of a plot. There are conversations between the H/h and time passes. The MCs don’t have sex within the first 5 mins of meeting each other. OMG. LOVED IT…. Read more »

Review: The Perfect Stroke (Lucas Brothers #1) by Jordan Marie

Review: The Perfect Stroke (Lucas Brothers #1) by Jordan Marie

I really enjoyed The Perfect Stroke! I’ve been hitting Kindle Unlimited pretty hard lately – I really want to get more out of it than endless Alexa Riley books (I think I’ve decided that AR is like Pokémon – “gotta read them all” LOL). Most of the stuff I’ve been… Read more »

Review: Claimed By The Mountain Man (Modern Mail-Order Bride Romance #1) by Frankie Love

Review: Claimed By The Mountain Man (Modern Mail-Order Bride Romance #1) by Frankie Love

I’m not really sure how I feel about this one. I…felt that Claimed By The Mountain Man reads pretty similar to an Alexa Riley book…but it does have more plot than the typical Alexa Riley. And more pages. Claimed By The Mountain Man really had an actual plot. The plot… Read more »

Review: Sugar Daddies by Jade West

Review: Sugar Daddies by Jade West

DNF @ 36% So. This one falls 100% under “not my cup of tea.” I can’t say it’s particularly badly written: it’s not. It’s just not my thing. Sugar Daddies is about dudes who like to put two penises in the same hole at the same time. OUCH!! I’ve heard… 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: 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: Engaging the Bachelor (Pulse #1) by Cathryn Fox

I found Engaging the Bachelor to be a sweet, quick read. This is my first time reading Cathryn Fox – a friend is in town and she basically shoved her eReader in to my stomach when I told her this. Read this! she demanded, lol. It was a super quick… Read more »

Review: Holding His Forever by Alexa Riley

Review: Holding His Forever by Alexa Riley

Woot! This is one of the more detailed (read: better) AR books I’ve read in some time!!! Yaaaay for plots!! Holding His Forever is a pretty standard AR book: Tall, buff, wealthy-ish, large dude meets small, helpless, petite, delicate blonde chick. They fall in love at first sight, she’s a… Read more »
