Review: Beauty and the Biker (Ghost Riders MC #2) by Alexa Riley

Review: Beauty and the Biker (Ghost Riders MC #2) by Alexa Riley

I’ve read a shitton of Alexa Riley at this point. I thought I was…numbed to AR due to the extreme amounts of her I read. OMG. I was NOT read for this one. Beauty and the Biker is quite disgusting on several different levels. Several. And I thought Pulling Her… Read more »

Review: Expecting the Earl’s Baby (Summer Weddings #1) by Jessica Gilmore

Review: Expecting the Earl’s Baby (Summer Weddings #1) by Jessica Gilmore

Three “meh” stars I picked up Expecting the Earl’s Baby randomly at my most recent library trip. I haven’t read a lot of HQNs lately so I thought I’d grab a few to try again. Expecting the Earl’s Baby is…rather sweet. There is no on page sex in this not-quite-secret… Read more »

Review: Cleat Chaser by Celia Aaron & Sloane Howell

Review: Cleat Chaser by Celia Aaron & Sloane Howell

I’m not sure what to say. I…picked this up because reasons but the read was not enjoyable. I spent most of the time rolling my eyes at it all, tbh. There was an amazing amount of insta-love/insta-lust that I did.not.buy. in the least. I rolled my eyes every time these… Read more »

Review: Mr and Mrs (Alexa Riley Promises #1) by Alexa Riley

Review: Mr and Mrs (Alexa Riley Promises #1) by Alexa Riley

Let me start by being 100% honest: I disliked this book quite a bit. This is a new series by Alexa Riley where it seems she’ll be rehashing old Harlequin Romance tropes. Amnesia + a secret baby is most certainly an old school HR trope. And I always hated it…. Read more »

Review: Freshman by Madison Faye

Review: Freshman by Madison Faye

Wow. So. How did we end up here? O_O Twice Driven and Kindle Unlimited. That’s how. Freshman was one of the three free books in the back of Twice Driven. Freshman (like Twice Driven) sounds like an Alexa Riley book. It is not. What Freshman is is poorly edited. And… Read more »

Review: Twice Driven by Madison Faye

Review: Twice Driven by Madison Faye

So. I picked this one up because I read a shitton of Alexa Riley and this sounded a lot like an Alexa Riley book. It sounds like an Alexa Riley book…but it doesn’t read like an Alexa Riley book. At all. O_O Here’s the thing: Alexa Riley writes the same… Read more »

Review: Pulling Her Trigger (Ghost Riders MC #1) by Alexa Riley

Review: Pulling Her Trigger (Ghost Riders MC #1) by Alexa Riley

I think I’ve become numb. I’ve read waaay too much AR at this point. I need an intervention. So. This book. It’s AR’s version of a motorcycle club (MC) book – but “safe” (meaning no cheating, rape, abuse, and an HEA). For those who don’t read MC books, imagine the… Read more »

Review: Tackled by Sabrina Paige

Review: Tackled by Sabrina Paige

I decided to read Tackled because I read and loved The Deal by Elle Kennedy. The Deal starred a popular “star” jock and an incredibly smart heroine who tutored him. The hero in The Deal cared about his future and his education. He was having a great time being a… Read more »

Review: Lassoing the Virgin Mail Order Bride by Alexa Riley

Review: Lassoing the Virgin Mail Order Bride by Alexa Riley

So, this happened. LOL What can I say? It’s typical Alexa Riley: dirty, full of insta-love and no real characterizations. Strangely, I’ve liked this one more than the others by her I’ve read lately. AR churns romances out but it might be time for her to slow her roll a… Read more »

Review: Practice Makes Perfect by Julie James

Review: Practice Makes Perfect by Julie James

This is my 6th Julie James book. I actually started reading her just last year but I quickly realized that Julie James often writes the kind of Romance(s) that I really enjoy. One of the things that endears Julie James’ work (to me) are her heroines. Julie James writes a… Read more »
