Review: Wicked Secret – Sawyer Bennett

Review: Wicked Secret – Sawyer Bennett

Wicked Secret is part of my favorite sub-genre – it’s erotic suspense, and both the hotness and the tense parts were so well done! As always, Bennett totally made my day with her story! Wicked Secret is part of the Wicked Horse series, and it also ties in with her Jameson Force Security series. This story can still be read as a stand alone, though. And I have to say few people can write an erotica with so much character development, Bennett is one of them, and I love her for it! Wicked Secret is both a second chance at love, and almost an enemies to lovers story. August is extremely angry with Leighton, and it takes him quite a […]

Review : Queen Move – Kennedy Ryan

Review : Queen Move – Kennedy Ryan

Queen Move was yet another masterpiece by Ms. Ryan – compelling characters, a beautiful love story, and important issues handled beautifully! Queen Move was so good I feel like I should just tell everyone to pick it up on release day. I guess a real review needs a bit more than that, though, so I’ll give it to you – with as little squeeing and gushing as possible 😉 First of all, I already met Kimba in the Kingmaker series, and I loved her there. Learning more about her in Queen Move made me love her even more. She’s a multi faceted character, and while her career has been the most important part of her life for ages, she has […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Tempt Me ~ Nina West

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Tempt Me ~ Nina West

I don’t know what exactly it was about Tempt Me that tempted me, wifey, but I was riveted. Maybe it was the way NWest brought these characters to life. I laughed, gasped, swooned…and I might have panted. 😉 LOL LOL there was definitely some panting going on. And I was so very curious about this whole series, as people either loved it or completely hated it! I know there was a point early on where we were both a little worried we weren’t going to like Abbi. She couldn’t seem to make up her mind and that made her appear weak. The more I got to know her though, the more I identified with her. She was young and really […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review: Kings Rising – C.S. Pacat

Blogger Wife Chat Review: Kings Rising – C.S. Pacat

In Kings Rising, the intrigue was even more present, the betrayals even more stinging, and the plot completely unpredictable.  First of all, can I just say wow to this series? Kings Rising was very well done! The intrigue, the new fragile peace between Laurent and Damen, the betrayals. It was hard to catch my breath while reading.  I couldn’t agree more, wifey. I couldn’t have anticipated how much I enjoyed Damen and Laurent’s story. It all was so well done!   Before we truly chat though, I have to mention that I felt a little unfulfilled with the ending. It was too abrupt for me, like maybe 20 pages more and I would have been satisfied. Did you enjoy the […]

Jax Reviews ~ The Secret History ~ Donna Tartt

Jax Reviews ~ The Secret History ~ Donna Tartt

My son, Jax, reviewed books from time to time on my previous blog. As a Mother’s Day gift, he wrote this review for me. I hope he’ll do more over the summer. 😉   **Jax Reviews** I enquire now as to the genesis of a philologist and assert the following: 1. A young man cannot possibly know what Greeks and Romans are. 2. He does not know whether he is suited for finding out about them. –Friedrich Nietzsche, and the opening lines of The Secret History. It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these reviews. I think my last review was on a book about solar eclipses or something along those lines. I had read Tartt’s The Goldfinch about […]

Review: Rafe – Sawyer Bennett

Review: Rafe – Sawyer Bennett

Rafe and Calliope were amazing! They had history, and now, a second chance at love. However, with that second chance came a lot of turmoil, too. Mostly because Rafe’s reason for coming home was to be with his dying father. Rafe was a great addition to my two favorite hockey series! He had the worst reason ever to go back home, but luckily for him, there weren’t only bad things waiting for him. I loved Calliope, and how understanding she was, especially towards Rafe’s parents. I also really enjoyed how she made Rafe work for her time. Because she deserved only the best, and that’s not what he had given her in the past. Rafe can be read as a […]

Buddy Read Chat Review w/ @BerlsS ~ Mine to Hold ~ Cynthia Eden

Buddy Read Chat Review w/ @BerlsS ~ Mine to Hold ~ Cynthia Eden

After meeting Noah in the 2 previous installments, I was more than anxious to get his story in Mine to Hold. CEden had set up Noah’s love interest and I figured Claire was going to be a hard nut to crack. I was keen to watch Noah take a chance, to get to know both he and Claire better, and I was curious about the kind of danger Claire would find herself in. CEden didn’t disappoint. As much as I like Noah, Claire was the one I was excited to get to know better. She was so spunky in the last book and had been hit with so much tragedy! And the sparks between them were undeniable, so I was […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review: Prince’s Gambit – C. S. Pacat

Blogger Wife Chat Review: Prince’s Gambit – C. S. Pacat

Prince’s Gambit was filled with intrigue, betrayal, action, and planning for war.  I had to catch my breath reading Prince’s Gambit! The action was even faster. And the intrigue as well as the betrayals were just amazing, don’t you think? Oh, they both were so amazing! I didn’t know who to trust or what was going to happen next. The action was faster in this installment and while most of the story had me tied in knots, Pacat did manage to make me laugh a few times. 🙂   Both Damen and Laurent grew in this novel too! What new information about them did you enjoy the most? I thought that in some ways, they were more similar than they […]

Review: One Moment Please – Amy Daws

Review: One Moment Please – Amy Daws

One Moment Please is a humorous, hot, sweet romantic comedy, with so many charcuterie boards, and quite a bit of fun, with some darker moments. I absolutely adored One Moment Please! Lynsey was exactly my kind of heroine, she was driven, self-sufficient, resilient, smart, funny, and a charcuterie-board expert! Of course, she wasn’t perfect, but she just spoke to me on a very deep level. Her friends also totally agree with me 🙂 Josh – or Dr. Dick as Lynsey got to calling him – was an enigma at first. He was grumpy, and borderline assholey. But there was still something about him that not only drew the eye (hello good looking!), there was more than that. One Moment Please […]

Buddy Read Chat Review ~ Picture Perfect Lie ~ Marquita Valentine #COYER @sophiarose1816

Buddy Read Chat Review ~ Picture Perfect Lie ~ Marquita Valentine  #COYER @sophiarose1816

A new element in the latest edition of COYER was buddy reading. I was lucky enough to get Sophia Rose (Delighted Reader) to buddy read with me. We had several books in common on our TBR shelves so we let random.org make the decision for us. Picture Perfect Lie by Marquita Valentine was the winner. And I think it’s safe to say it was a winner of a read for us both. 🙂 Here’s our chat…   Picture Perfect Lie was such a sweet story! I was immediately smitten with Knight when he quickly stepped into help Campbell with her infant daughter, Hazel, while waiting out weather delays and cancellations at an airport. Yes, we later learned this was his […]
