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. […]

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 […]

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 […]

Review: Playing for Keeps – Jill Shalvis

Review: Playing for Keeps – Jill Shalvis

Playing for Keeps just might be my favorite Heartbreaker Bay story! I loved Sadie and Caleb so much. And Lollipop was the best rescue puppy ever! Playing for Keeps just worked so very well for me! Sadie and Caleb both wanted nothing to do with a relationship. And they kind of worked the best using sarcasm towards each other. Until that evening when Caleb found an abandoned, three legged dog in the courtyard. And they somehow ended up co-adopting her. Caleb had been a bit of a mystery up until now, as he was a little on the outskirt of the friend group. In Playing for Keeps, however, he showed just what kind of a man he was. He’s a […]

Release Day Review: Finding Alexei – Kendall Ryan

Release Day Review: Finding Alexei – Kendall Ryan

Finding Alexei reads as a modern-day fairytale, with a little bit of Pretty Woman mixed in. It’s a sweet romance, and I enjoyed getting to know Alexei and Ryleigh. Ryleigh works hard, and she works long hours – and now, she has to take care of her former room mate’s baby. Life is not good for her, and one night, leaving her work, Alexei defends her against one of the customers. The romance is rather slow burning, and I love that – especially because Alexei just wants to help. Of course, he is very rich, so it’s no difficulty for him to share his home and a little of his money with Ryleigh and the baby. However, I did find […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Before We Were Strangers ~ Brenda Novak

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Before We Were Strangers ~ Brenda Novak

Before We Were Strangers was chilling, riveting, and kept me guessing throughout. However, I had some difficulty connecting with some of the characters and the ending was a bit too tidy for me. This wasn’t my favorite from Novak but it was still a pretty good read. *sighs* I didn’t really enjoy this one – I found some aspects of it to be too similar to her Evelyn Talbot chronicles. And the romance wasn’t all that sweet or hot. Plus, I found the ending to be, as you said, too tidy, as well.   I can’t fathom going through what Sloane has been through in suspecting her father in the disappearance of her mother. Her father was definitely formidable but […]

Review: Wicked Knight – Sawyer Bennett

Review: Wicked Knight – Sawyer Bennett

Wicked Knight is the fifth book in the Wicked Horse Vegas series, and this series is still going strong. More than erotic romance, it is about dealing with the aftermath of a tough divorce as well. And also trusting another man to do right, when the one who was supposed to be everything only thought of himself. Story: I really enjoyed Wicked Knight, it was definitely hot, and had a little Cinderella / Pretty Woman feel to it. Mostly because Hannah was ready to do whatever it took to make sure her daughter would be with her, and that she would be safe being there. In the beginning, I didn’t really enjoy Asher all that much, but that changed quickly. […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review: Good Time – Jana Aston

Blogger Wife Chat Review: Good Time – Jana Aston

Good Time was hilarious, don’t you think, Wifey? I was reading on the train back from Zurich this weekend, and I not only laughed out loud, I also snorted. Loudly. So that not only my daughter turned her head to look at me – other people on the train did as well. Payton was so funny – and she didn’t even mean to be, what did you think of her? Omigosh was Good Time hilarious!! I also giggle-snorted and I had to read parts aloud to Hubs because my reactions made him curious. Payton was funny without ever meaning to be. Being in her head, listening to her justify her actions to herself…I don’t know how anyone could NOT love […]
