Review: Stepbrother’s Rules by Renee Rose

Review: Stepbrother’s Rules by Renee Rose

Jeeze! This was hot, hot hot! and I enjoyed almost every bit of it. It was both sweet and hot. I loved Brad but I wasn’t quite as fond of LuAnn. Brad picks LuAnn up from school after she’s kicked out of the dorm for drinking, smoking and boys. Brad… Read more »

Review: Their Kidnapped Bride (Bridgewater Menage #1) by Vanessa Vale

Review: Their Kidnapped Bride (Bridgewater Menage #1) by Vanessa Vale

I like a good ménage romance just as much as the next dirty girl…but Their Kidnapped Bride just didn’t do it for me. I had an issue with the most of the story, to be honest. The whole reason her step-brother sold her was…pretty much BS and made no sense… Read more »

Review: Gossamer Wing (Steam and Seduction #1) by Delphine Dryden

Welcome back to Clean Up Week at Books, Life & Wine! Today we are getting rid of Gossamer Wing by Delphine Dryden because…well…to be honest, I was bored. So. I have seriously enjoyed a decent handful of Delphine Dryden’s work. In fact, Ms Dryden was my first “real” BDSM focused… Read more »

Review: When a Scot Ties the Knot (Castles Ever After #3) by Tessa Dare

When a Scot Ties the Knot is my second read by Tessa Dare. I really enjoyed the first book – a novella – and I had very high hopes for When a Scot Ties the Knot based on the raving reviews I read. When a Scot Ties the Knot is… Read more »

Review: The Debutante’s Dilemma by Elyse Mady

Review: The Debutante’s Dilemma by Elyse Mady

This was a rather adorable erotic romance that I was greatly surprised to really enjoy. I picked up a copy of The Debutante’s Dilemma in 2011 when it was being offered as a free download by Carina Press. I have to admit…the cover really drew me in: it’s gorgeous and… Read more »

Review: Crystal Gardens (Ladies of Lantern Street #1) by Amanda Quick

Review: Crystal Gardens (Ladies of Lantern Street #1) by Amanda Quick

The thing that stood out the MOST to me throughout this book was the constant use of the word “psychical.” And it drove me mad by irritating the shit out of me. 🙁 Directly after that I was irritated by the word “senses.” I felt like I was partially dropped… Read more »

Review: Otherwise Engaged by Amanda Quick

Review: Otherwise Engaged by Amanda Quick

Sadly, this book was rather “meh” for me. I like Amanda Quick as an author and I’ve read several of her books – my favorite being Scandal. The parts of Otherwise Engaged that worked the most for me was Amity and her sister Penny’s relationship and the agency that both… Read more »

Review: To Have and To Scold (The Sons of Johnny Hastings) by Mary Wehr

Review: To Have and To Scold (The Sons of Johnny Hastings) by Mary Wehr

Meh. I picked this one up because the blurb sounded pretty delicious but I didn’t get exactly what I was…looking for? Expecting? IDK but it didn’t quite do it for me. The heroine, Annie, is a brat – I’m not a fan of brats. She seems to have a tendency… Read more »
