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

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

I’m not gonna sugar-coat it…Stanton Unconditional tried my patience a good bit. The drama! I just wanted Natasha and Joshua to grow up a bit! Yeah, I did so many eye-rolls while reading Stanton Unconditional it’s almost weird my eyes could continue down the pages. They were both acting like brats, and I didn’t like either of them. And again, Natasha lashed out instead of hearing Josh out. It got on my last nerve. I agree!!!   I think at this point I should comment on the fabulous secondary cast Swan created. Adrian, Max, Ben, Bridget and Abbie, and Cameron ALL add so much depth to the story. Cameron had to work a little to win his place back in […]

Review: The Rose – Tiffany Reisz

Review: The Rose – Tiffany Reisz

The Rose is a beautiful erotic mix of Greek mythology, a fairytale and a romance. Reisz just enchants her readers, and that was even more the case with this story. With her talents as a storyteller, Reisz brought on the next level with The Rose. Both Lia and August were characters that made me curious – and I wanted them to get to know each other better. With the kylix, and traveling to different worlds to have hot sex, it was even better. The Rose wove the Greek mythology elements together with Lia and August so nicely, and I could believe that the kylix actually worked. I think I was a believer faster than Lia was. I also found myself […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ The Right Man ~ Michelle Mankin @MichelleMankin

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ The Right Man ~ Michelle Mankin @MichelleMankin

I just adored The Right Man! It was emotional, romantic, and if I hadn’t already believe that love could conquer all, Rush and Jewel would have convinced me. 🙂 I loved it, too! It was such a beautiful story, and I loved Rush and Jewel to pieces, wifey! They were perfect in their roles, and they were so ready to find love!   Rush was the epitome of a rock star asshole when we first meet him. But it didn’t take long to see his disillusionment with this current status.The arrogance was his armor, don’t you think? I felt for him almost immediately. A lost and lonely boy – surrounded by people but isolated nonetheless. That was my impression anyway. […]

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 […]

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 […]

Review: Overnight Sensation – Sarina Bowen

Review: Overnight Sensation – Sarina Bowen

Overnight Sensation is a fantastic story, about love, loss, and taking responsibility – the characters are very relatable, and I fell in love! Bowen truly did it again with Overnight Sensation! She made me lose a little sleep – because I just had to keep on reading. Her knowledge about hockey, and what happens behind the scenes just made this story even better! Everything that has to be done in and around the rink for both games and practice. All the people who have to work to make it all happen. The way players have to deal with nosy reporters, bloggers, and fans. And how difficult it can be to just stay true to oneself when everyone appears to be […]

New Release Review ~ The Case of the Voracious Vintner ~ Tara Lain

New Release Review ~ The Case of the Voracious Vintner ~ Tara Lain

The Case of the Voracious Vintner proved TLain’s writing prowess as she delivered an entertaining cozy mystery  while also delivering on all the other elements I’ve come to expect from her M/M romances. Highlights: Main Characters Beau Marchand is the epitome of a well-bred Southern gentleman. He’s charming, loyal to family and friends, and would rather live under the misperception he’s a “confirmed bachelor who never met the right lady” than admit to his family he’s gay. That is until he meets Jeremy Aames. Beau and Jeremy met because they’re both vintners who own small wineries. Jeremy is out and proud and although he’s interested in Beau, he thinks Beau is straight. The two of them start spending time together […]
