Review ~ Next in Line ~ Amy Daws #unearthingabookishbounty

Review ~ Next in Line ~ Amy Daws #unearthingabookishbounty

I think I loved Next in Line even more than Wait With Me! There were plenty of laughs, of course, but there was something about Maggie that resonated with me. Witnessing the romance between her and Sam blossom was moving as well as humorous and HOT! Maggie is in Boulder on a mission. She wants to be more adventurous…to find her inner-explorer. This mission was spurred by her boyfriend calling her basic and breaking up with her. On Christmas Day. Anyway, she finds herself at a bait shop because nothing says adventurous like…ice fishing. 😉 Luckily, she happens upon a handsome guy who not only defends her honor but also agrees to serve as her guide. Sam is nothing if […]

Review ~ Wait With Me ~ Amy Daws  #(un)EarthingaBookishBounty

Wait With Me was the perfect quarantine…er, isolation read. 😉 It was funny, emotional, & HOT! And I hate that I waited so long to read ADaws. Kate is an author of erotica whose conservative family is embarrassed by her profession and she’s experiencing writer’s block due to the fact she’s still living with her douche of an ex-boyfriend. When she takes her car in for some maintenance she finds her writing mojo in the Tire Depot waiting room. Miles is a mechanic at Tire Depot who can’t drama but believe his luck when he discovers this gorgeous red-head in the Customer Convenience Center. Especially since she’s there EVERY day. He’s sworn off relationships since his ex provided a lifetime’s […]

Review ~ The Time in Between ~ Kristen Ashley

Review ~ The Time in Between ~ Kristen Ashley

I think I’ve established that I’m a sucker for second chance romance and The Time in Between is the ultimate in second chances at romance. It was a beautiful story with beautiful characters set in a beautiful locale. And it was pure Kristen Ashley. I’ve loved all the books in the Magdalene series but this one is my very favorite. Coert and Cady were once very much in love and committed to the long haul. Circumstances tore them apart and kept them apart for almost 20 years. They’re both very stubborn and Cady arriving in Coert’s hometown has him digging his heels in not wanting to listen to Cady. But Cady is determined. And those feelings from so long ago? […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Gabriel Fallen ~ Nina West

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Gabriel Fallen ~ Nina West

Gabriel Fallen had me equally as riveted as its predecessor, especially since the romance between Mercy and Gabriel is really heating up. 😉 The romance is definitely heating up – and so are the feelings they’re both starting to have for each other.    Mercy is having a bit of trouble reconciling the two sides of Gabriel and her intense attraction to him. And then there’s her inability to understand why he’s do determined to have, and maybe keep?, her. I like the fact that Mercy is vulnerable and unsure of herself while also throwing smack back at Gabriel’s arrogant, smirking face. I felt NWest gave us an even deeper view of Mercy and who she is. Did your feelings […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Sweet Mercy ~ Nina West

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Sweet Mercy ~ Nina West

Wowza! There is just something about NWest’s writing that immediately draws me in! Sweet Mercy had me flipping through the pages, completely absorbed in Mercy & Gabriel’s story to the very end. I felt for and admired Mercy. She’d experienced and endured so much but she didn’t let it beat her. She’s spirited and feisty and those qualities are good to have when life seems to continually hand you lemons. And then there’s her loyalty. When her dad went to prison she changed her life plans in order to help him. She’d do anything for her dad…which lands her in her current situation. 😉 What did you think about Mercy? I loved Mercy from the start! There was a certain […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Surrender to Me ~ Nina West #seriesinamonth

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Surrender to Me ~ Nina West #seriesinamonth

Holy wow, wifey! Surrender to Me was quite the conclusion for Henry and Abbi. I’ve loved every moment despite some heartache but the finale was perfect. Yeah, this was definitely an ending that was made for Abbi and Henry! And even with that, I wouldn’t have minded more books about them 😉   I can’t even verbalize how proud I was of Abbi for finally sticking up for herself with her mother. That woman was so manipulative! She did eventually do some growing of her own but I applauded Abbi for respectfully putting her mom in her place. What were your feelings? Ugh! I actually hated Abbi’s mom in this one. I can’t believe the lengths she went to in […]

PassionFlix Movie Review ~ The Will ~ Kristen Ashley @PassionFlix

PassionFlix Movie Review ~ The Will ~ Kristen Ashley @PassionFlix

As you may know, I’m not a t.v. watcher. I don’t even watch movies all that often although we have been watching one a week as a family activity since the kids came home from college because of Covid. Anyway, I first heard about PassionFlix at RT although I can’t recall which year…I’m thinking 2017. I was so excited. I mean, what could be better than a movie version of my favorite books? But then I got nervous because “the book was better” and life happened and I forgot all about PassionFlix. Until The Will. I first saw that The Will was being made as a movie when I saw an IG post from KA. It was a photo of […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Teach Me ~ Nina West #seriesinamonth

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Teach Me ~ Nina West #seriesinamonth

I have to admit that I hated leaving Alaska in this installment but I appreciated what being in Pennsylvania did for Abbi and Henry. I’m so in love with their story! Yeah, me, too! I loved the way they were kind of enclosed in Alaska, but with scrutinizing eyes everywhere. Being in Pennsylvania changed a lot of things, and it showed us just how much Henry cares.   The reason for Abbi’s need to go home – her dad’s accident – and how Henry dealt with it had me vacillating between fear and hope. Fear and hope both for Abbi’s dad and for her relationship with Henry. I fell for Henry a little bit more due to his actions. How […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Break Me ~ Nina West #seriesinamonth

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Break Me ~ Nina West #seriesinamonth

Break Me in some ways, well, broke me. Not to worry though. NWest repaired the damage. LOL Ha! Nice pun, wifey 🙂 Okay, I’m going to start with the shit-storm swirling around Henry. There’s the stress of the hotel opening and having to schmooze people…namely women. Then there’s his dad and asshole brother arriving and said brother trying to stir up trouble. And then there’s the matter of allegations made by Henry’s former assistant. This all causes problems for Abbi and Henry’s fledgling romance. I know that Henry tried to explain things to Abbi, to prepare her for the things she might see and/or hear, but I felt like he should have known better. Yes, he’s used to being with […]
