12 Shades of Surrender Anthology Review: Seven Day Loan (The Original Sinners 0.5) by Tiffany Reisz  *spoilers*

12 Shades of Surrender Anthology Review: Seven Day Loan (The Original Sinners 0.5) by Tiffany Reisz *spoilers*

Note: I should call this “The Exorcism of Ellie” rather than a book review. Eleanor’s story really made me sad and the character has lingered in my mind. This is my attempt to excise her presence. Read at your own risk. Gah! I don’t know what to say about this… Read more »

Review: Librarian By Day by Paige Tyler

Review: Librarian By Day by Paige Tyler

I was so disappointed by this one. Sometimes I let blurbs and my own excitement get the better of me. I really liked the blurb of Librarian By Day and I thought – I’m not exactly sure – but I *think* I thought I was going to get a submission… Read more »

Review: Vengeful in Love (Billionaires in Love #1) by Nadia Lee

Review: Vengeful in Love (Billionaires in Love #1) by Nadia Lee

Gaaah! Vengeful in Love hit my major pet peeve in Romance: it has a deception based plotline. I HATE deception plotlines and Vengeful in Love has it in spades. *rolls eyes* The deception in this book starts at the very beginning when the hero decides to hide his association with… Read more »

Review: Perfect Partners (Love Unexpected) by Carly Phillips

Review: Perfect Partners (Love Unexpected) by Carly Phillips

  Perfect Partners was…a rather “meh” category romance. I have no strong feelings about the book, the characters or the plot. The plot was is rather formulaic: Plot moppet’s parents (the hero’s brother and the heroine’ sister) are killed in an accident, orphaning the plot moppet. The heroine and hero… Read more »

Review: The Heat is On (Out of Uniform #6) by Elle Kennedy

Meh. There was a lot to like about The Heat is On…but there was also a lot I didn’t like. And frankly, I’m going to chalk part of it up as a learning experience. The Heat is On is one of those rare romance books where gender roles are slightly… Read more »

Review: Gotcha! (Tall, Hot & Texan #1) by Christie Craig

Review: Gotcha! (Tall, Hot & Texan #1) by Christie Craig

Gotcha! is the second Christie Craig book that I’ve read, the first being Divorced, Desperate and Delicious. I enjoyed both Divorced, Desperate and Delicious and Gotcha! – but they are both rather similar books. Both books have a police officer hero and a divorced 30-40 something heroine. Both books have… 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 »
