Safe and Sexy #48 – The Right Man

Safe and Sexy #48 – The Right Man

Safe and Sexy Thinking of my romances and safe sex at the same time started when I wrote my discussion post with the same name a long time ago! Not too long after, the idea of sharing quotes about that ensured that the feature Safe and Sexy was born. It’s where I will share a quote from a story I have read, and where there is a lot of hotness and sexiness, but where they still take the time to be safe! It’s important to me to read books that make me dream, but I also want them to be somewhat realistic. And to me, characters seem realistic when they take care of themselves and their partner(s)! Safe sex is a […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Stanton Adore ~ T.L. Swan #RAREParis

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Stanton Adore ~ T.L. Swan  #RAREParis

As you may or may not know, Denise and I are traveling to Europe in late March to visit Lexxie and to attend RAREParis. In an attempt to prepare, at least for RARE, the three of us decided to buddy read books from RARE authors. This is the second of our chat reviews for this amazing list of authors! Stanton Adore completely hooked me. There was just something about the story, the pace, and the characters that was very compelling. I got hooked quickly, too, Brandee. The beginning of the story just grabbed me and wouldn’t let me go. Young love, young choices and all that go with that had me hooked.   Swan did an excellent job in creating […]

Audio Review ~ The Protector ~ Elin Peer

Audio Review ~ The Protector ~ Elin Peer

The synopsis for The Protector essentially reeled me in. I mean, a world ruled by women? You can understand my curiosity, right? And EPeer didn’t disappoint me. Highlights: Premise/Plot EPeer did an excellent job of creating this futuristic world where women rule, crime is virtually non-existent, men are docile, and peace abounds. She illustrated how the world came to be as it is with an inventive history and present. With the exception of the Northlands, the world lives by a “we” mentality rather than “us versus them.” When Christina goes to the Northlands, both she and Bolder learn a lot about each other’s cultures, their misconceptions and that not everything about the other’s world is bad. Characters Christina and Bolder […]

Weekend Wrap-up #265 – Fast Week

Weekend Wrap-up is where I share my new books, as well as what happened here at (un)Conventional Bookworms and elsewhere in the blogoshpere. I’m linking up with the usual suspects, AKA Team Tynga’s Reviews and Caffeinated Reviewer.

Without further ado, here’s what I added to my bloated shelves this past week: Thank you to the authors for these ARCs! I’m really excited about them 🙂 I also got an ARC for When the Gods Forget (Forgotten Gods series #2) by Kennedy Daly. And […]

Bloggerwife Chat Review: The Square – J.A. Huss and Johnathan McClain

Bloggerwife Chat Review: The Square – J.A. Huss and Johnathan McClain

The Square kind of blew me away! I can’t wait to chat with Brandee about it – because there was just so much that happened and I have no idea what can even happen next. What a ride The Square was, right, Brandee? I have no idea how Huss and McClain manage to keep the suspense like they do – and how they are able to keep me guessing through the twists and turns. Did you guess anything during this story? I know I didn’t! It really was quite the ride, Lex! The Square wasn’t as action-packed as The Triangle and yet the suspense kept me glued to my kindle and had me biting my nails. Oh the twists and […]

Review: Unbreakable – Emma Scott

Review: Unbreakable – Emma Scott

Unbreakable had some pretty good excitement, very attaching characters, and a story that hurt my heart a little bit Unbreakable was full of feels! Some of them good feelings, other, not so positive. However, a story that can make me both sigh with contentment, and be angry with some of the characters is a good one. There were some rather big relationship complications here, which added another layer to Unbreakable. And I’m not sure it’s a story for everyone. Both Alex and Cory have had their lot of hardship. Their hardship, however, is very different in many ways, and similar in others. Unbreakable shows how hard it can be to live up to expectations. Especially our own, and those of […]

Review: Free – Kristen Ashley

Review: Free – Kristen Ashley

Oh my goodness! I just love me some Chaos, and I have to say that Rush and Rebel’s story got to me in every way. These alpha MC men, with their wild, intelligent, and fun women always get to me – but I just adored Free! Free is the last installment in the Chaos series, and it was sad to see some of my favorite characters ever for the last time. It was also a great story, though, so I was completely satisfied when I came to the end. Rush and Rebel were made for each other! She was a strong woman, and she was able to hold her own – both with Rush and with other men. Rush is […]
