Author: Lauren Dane

Lauren Dane has been writing stories since she was able to use a pencil, and before that she used to tell them to people. Of course, she still talks nonstop, and through wonderful fate and good fortune, she’s now able to share what she writes with others. It’s a wonderful life!

The basics: Lauren is a mom, a partner, a best friend and a daughter. Living in the rainy but beautiful Pacific Northwest, she spends her late evenings writing like a fiend when she finally wrestles all of her kids to bed.

Review: Once and Again (Petal, Georgia #1) by Lauren Dane

Review: Once and Again (Petal, Georgia #1) by Lauren Dane

Gosh. I really didn’t care for this one at all. 🙁 And that makes me rather sad. I mean, I read a lot of Lauren Dane. But the Chase Brothers series and the Petal, Georgia spin off aren’t…working for me. At all. So. Once and Again. Lily and Nathan grew… Read more »

Review: Opening Up (Ink & Chrome #1) by Lauren Dane

Opening Up was released in June 2015 and I read in sometime in September 2015. And then I forgot everything I read. I told myself I would re-read this in order to review. I lied. I enjoyed Opening Up but not enough to re-read it. I would say that Opening… Read more »

Review: Laid Bare (Brown Family #1) by Lauren Dane

I’m not really sure what to say about Laid Bare…or how I feel about it, exactly. I started reading The Brown Family series (starting with Laid Bare) because of the way Lauren Dane seems to write her contemporary romances: there are multiple different series BUT they all (so far, at… Read more »

Review: Tart (Delicious #2) by Lauren Dane

Review: Tart (Delicious #2) by Lauren Dane

As I mentioned in my review for Sway, I’m reading the Delicious series because I read the Hurley Boys series and one of the Hurley’s books actually take place in the Delicious series. I will also try to make my way through the Brown Family. It seems that at least… Read more »

Review: Sway (Delicious #1) by Lauren Dane

So. I find myself getting a little annoyed with Lauren Dane right now. I’ve read quite a few Lauren Dane PNR books in my life but I just started with her contemporary romances. I started with the Hurley Boys series which I really enjoyed. There was just one thing niggling… Read more »

Review: Back to You (The Hurley Boys #3) by Lauren Dane

I’ve finally come to the end of the road with the Hurley Boys and I’m not quite sure how I feel about it. I have given quite a bit of thought to finding some of her other contemporary romances, however (I really want to read Lush (Delicious #3) Damien +… 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: The Best Kind of Trouble (The Hurley Boys #1) by Lauren Dane

I loved this book. LOVED. I can’t put my finger on exactly what touched me so much about The Best Kind of Trouble. Like Mary Poppins, it was practically perfect in every way. The Best Kind of Trouble is a reunited lovers story – the best kind, at that. Natalie… Read more »
