Review: Best Man for the Bridesmaid (The DeFiore Brothers #2) by Jennifer Faye

Review: Best Man for the Bridesmaid (The DeFiore Brothers #2) by Jennifer Faye

Meh. Best Man for the Bridesmaid is a perfectly fine book. I was just bored or rolling my eyes or bored while rolling my eyes. Best Man for the Bridesmaid isn’t a silly book, per se. It’s just…has silly (but not funny) moments that sorta made me want to cringe…. Read more »

Review: Intermezzo by Delphine Dryden

Review: Intermezzo by Delphine Dryden

It’s good to read some enjoyable Delphine Dryden again! I’ve read a decent handful of Delphine Dryden over the years but was stymied by the first book in the Steam and Seduction series. For some reason being unable to get through that book gave me a bit of a mental… Read more »

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

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

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: Guarding His Obsession by Alexa Riley

Review: Guarding His Obsession by Alexa Riley

OMG. I HATED the heroine in this book. Hated. I hated every.single.thing. about the heroine, for the most part. Every time she had dialogue I wanted to rip off her lips and sew her mouth-hole shut. Permanently. The aggravation I felt knew no bounds. In fact, I was completely unable… Read more »
