New Release Review & Giveaway ~ Angel of Ashes & Dust ~ D.H. Nevins

New Release Review & Giveaway ~ Angel of Ashes & Dust ~ D.H. Nevins

Angel of Ashes & Dust is the exciting ending to the Wormwood Trilogy. It’s a book I’ve been eagerly anticipating and it delivered the satisfying ending I was hoping for. Picking up where Angel of Shadow left off, Kali finds herself the reluctant leader of the surviving humans. She’s struggling with a role she didn’t ask for, a group that seemingly gets angrier and more mistrusting every day, and a power she hesitates to use for fear of it being used against her. Despite Kali not wanting to lead, she’s willing to do all she can to help these humans rebuild. This determination means she must deal with the distrust and make the hard decisions needed to further their cause. […]

New Release Review: Let Me Love You – Scarlett Cole

Let Me Love You – or how best friends can lose touch before they can ever become lovers… Let Me Love You is Chaya and Ben’s story (<i>finally!! </i>) 🙂 These characters have been best friends forever, and everybody but them realized that there was more than friendship to their relationship.

ARC Review ~ When It Falls Apart ~ Catherine Bybee

ARC Review ~ When It Falls Apart ~ Catherine Bybee

I was thrilled to see When It Falls Apart land in my inbox. I’ve been meaning to read Catherine Bybee since meeting her in 2013 (yeah, I’m a bit s-l-o-w) and getting to be in on a new series from the ground level was really appealing. Luca and Brooke were a charming way to meet all the D’Angelos and this series. Brooke was so…REAL! Needing a change following a breakup as well as having to take over primary care of her ailing father, she finds herself relocating to San Diego. Things seem to fall into place when she finds a facility for her father conveniently located and new digs in the area that drew her to San Diego in the […]

New Release Review ~ The Rogue ~ Kimberly Kincaid

New Release Review ~ The Rogue ~ Kimberly Kincaid

The Rogue was fast-paced and suspenseful with a side of romance. I’d not read any of the previous books in this series and didn’t suffer for it. I will however be going back to read the others in the series because I need to know everyone else’s stories. 😉 Addison is an awesome detective. She works hard at doing her job well. She works equally as hard at not having emotions. Emotions equal weakness and she doesn’t ever want to feel weak again. One night with Ryan though had her feeling things that scared her. So she ran. Unfortunately she takes a call that puts her in close proximity to Ryan. His sister is being stalked and it’ll take every […]

ARC Review: Shenanigans – Sarina Bowen

ARC Review: Shenanigans – Sarina Bowen

Shenanigans has all the ingredients I love in a good romance! Humor, friendship, hockey, hotness and a dash of side characters to hate on. To say I loved Shenanigans is a huge understatement! Neil and Charli were such great characters to get to know. From their accidental Vegas wedding to everything they did to not only stay married, but try to work it out as a business thing rather than anything real with feelings involved. Between the friendships in both of their hockey teams, and the way they had to fight their families to get to the finish line – it all just made so much sense to me. I really loathed Neil’s uncle, because his shenanigans were just mean-spirited […]

ARC Review: Running Wild – K.A. Tucker

ARC Review: Running Wild – K.A. Tucker

Running Wild is Marie’s story, she is a character we met in the prior Wild stories, and she was not my favorite character in those… I wasn’t sure I’d enjoy Marie’s story, because, as I sad, I didn’t really like her in the prior books in this series. Partly, that’s because she was kind of an interloper in Calla and Jonah’s story. As Jonah’s best friend – who also had a crush on him. This is something Marie deals with in her own novel. While she is happy for Calla and Jonah, she also wants that kind of relationship for herself. The family relationships in Running Wild are a bit complicated. Marie is the oldest of three sisters, and she […]

Review ~ Seeking Vengeance ~ Eden Summers

Review ~ Seeking Vengeance ~ Eden Summers

Seeking Vengeance was a steamy, emotional thrill-ride! I was immediately drawn into the story. And to say I’ll be impatiently awaiting the next installment might just be the understatement of 2021 so far. (as it relates to my reading anyway ;)) Layla wants to be enough. As the daughter of a crime lord, she feels tainted by her family’s business. Then there’s the guilt she feels over a family betrayal that shouldn’t be held against her, yet is. And she’s paid the unthinkable price. Her family despises her and she’s seeking vengeance as well as redemption. Matthew is rather an enigma. He holds his cards close to his chest – except for his feelings for Layla. His life experiences have shown him […]

Blogtour Review : For the Love of April French – Penny Aimes

Blogtour Review : For the Love of April French – Penny Aimes

For the Love of April French is a tender, sweet romance between April and Dennis, where they both have some past demons to overcome. As soon as I read the synopsis for this novel, I knew I had to read For the Love of April French! A romance with a trans woman as the main character appealed to me, and the fact that the author is also a trans woman is what completely sold me. I loved getting to know April, and to understand how she thought through so many things before acting. In many ways, she was so very self possessed, and in others, she was insecure and a little afraid. I think that is par for the course […]

ARC Review : Jett – Sawyer Bennett

ARC Review : Jett – Sawyer Bennett

As always, Sawyer Bennett’s hockey stars and the person they fall in love with grabbed me from the first word! Jett is fine, and I loved how persistent he was with Emory when she appeared to not be interested. Jett is a very tender romance in many places, especially because Emory is a single mother. In fact, she turns out being everything Jett thought he would never want, which just made their story even better in my opinion. Emory was very gun-shy, with good reason, and the readers and Jett learned of those reasons little by little. Each time I thought Jett would turn around and run, he surprised both me and Emory by being understanding, caring, and even loving <3 […]

Review ~ Homecoming Heartbreaker ~ Joss Wood

Review ~ Homecoming Heartbreaker ~ Joss Wood

I quite enjoyed my initial visit to Moonlight Ridge with Homecoming Heartbreaker. I love the setup for the entire series and look forward to seeing how these brothers, and their dad, end up ensnared by just the right woman. 😉 Homecoming Heartbreaker focuses on Mack, the oldest Holloway brother, and Molly Haskell, the girl he left behind. With Mack’s dad being ill, he’s back to run the business (a luxury resort) for a while. He’s determined to clear the air with Molly so they can move on, leave the past in the past, and work together amicably (she stayed on a Moonlight Ridge and is an integral part of the business.) However, Mack’s willpower to stay away from Molly is […]
