Review: Rebel King – Kennedy Ryan

Review: Rebel King – Kennedy Ryan

Rebel King is filled with anguish, angst, high-stakes politics, love, friendship and betrayal. It’s a novel that will take your breath away! If you read my review for The Kingmaker, you know that story ended with a cliffhanger. And my goodness, what a cliffhanger it was. Now, in order to not spoil anything for you, I’m going to have to be extremely cryptic. Because I want you to have the same amazing experience of Rebel King as I had. So I can tell you that I cried reading Rebel King. And I can tell you those tears fell for a while. But I also smiled and laughed, thank goodness. There was a lot going on with this story, and you […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ The Boss Who Stole Christmas ~ Jana Aston

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ The Boss Who Stole Christmas ~ Jana Aston

The Boss Who Stole Christmas was a sweet read despite it having an enemies-to-lovers trope. I liked how Holly discovered her true feelings for Nick and I’m excited for her sisters’ stories. I was so happy with this story, wifey! I expected a sweet, hot, funny, feel-good romance, and that’s exactly what I got. And it’s also exactly what I needed! Being inside Holly’s head at that first meeting was fun! It was kinda obvious more was going on than she was admitting to herself but her nicknames for Nick and her descriptions of him had me giggling. And I could see where Holly might think Nick was being hard on her but I also thought she’d misconstrued his intention. […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Rock F*ck Club #4 ~ Michelle Mankin

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Rock F*ck Club #4 ~ Michelle Mankin

Rock F*ck Club reads like a reality TV show and therefore picks back up right where we left off. I admire how MMankin uses this format to convey the reality of the journey these women are on. I’m certain she never considered this series would become so relevant. You’re very right! It does read like reality TV show, and also the back-stage of said show. I love how these women just want to take charge of their own lives, and how the money they get from the show is part of the way they get that. I knew with Marsha’s past, her road to happiness with Ivan wasn’t going to be smooth. I appreciated how MMankin kept it real – […]

Can You Read a Series in a Month Review #1 ~ Pucked ~ Helena Hunting

Can You Read a Series in a Month Review #1 ~ Pucked ~ Helena Hunting

Oh golly was Pucked a lot of fun! I loved Violet! Her klutziness, her lack of filter…the things that came out of her mouth! LOL I adored Alex, too. His loyalty, his tenacity, his loving Violet for exactly who she is. I have a feeling I might fly through this series! Highlights: Characters Not only was I delighted with Violet and Alex but HHunting populated their story with an outstanding secondary cast. From Alex’s teammates to his parents and Vi’s step-brother, parents, and best friend – they all combined to better convey the character of Violet and Alex. The secondary characters also gave depth to the story. Plus, I’m eager to learn more about quite a few hockey players. 😉 […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Veiled Vixen ~ KC Cross

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Veiled Vixen ~ KC Cross

Veiled Vixen was an adrenaline-pumping read and not because it was action-packed. No, this installment had revelation after revelation which made me question everything I thought I knew about this series. I know, right? Those revelations made my head spin. But they also made me understand just how little I actually knew, if you know what I mean. Veiled Vixen is told solely from Valor’s POV, excepting Interludes with a few characters. Do you think this was done intentionally so that we could see Veila, and everything currently going on, from his perspective? Yes, I definitely think it was so that we could see how Valor picked up on things, and what he thought about everything. And also, so that […]

#OctobeRec Fest Review #4 ~ Lucifer’s Daughter ~ Eve Langlais

#OctobeRec Fest Review #4 ~ Lucifer’s Daughter ~ Eve Langlais

Welcome to OctobeRec Fest. I started this as a nod to Oktoberfest (books & beer…heaven, am I right?!?) so I’ll spending the month of October reading a few of the many, many books I’ve procured thanks to you, my blogging friends. Title: Lucifer’s Daughter Author: Eve Langlais Narrator: Rebecca Estrella Recommended by: Melanie @Hot Listens Lucifer’s Daughter wasn’t my first Eve Langlais read but I’d met Muriel in another book and really wanted her story. Melanie really liked ELanglais and recommended this series so I gave it a go in audio. I adored Muriel’s story and REstrella’s narration for the most part. Highlights: Characters Muriel is quite entertaining. She’s strong, independent, smart, honest, a virgin… hehe Yeah, her dad is not […]

Review: The Kingmaker – Kennedy Ryan

Review: The Kingmaker – Kennedy Ryan

The Kingmaker is a masterpiece of a novel! There is a social issue that is important, there is romance, and there is some very strong characters you should all want to meet. I don’t even know where to start with my review for The Kingmaker. Lennix is one of the most amazing female characters I have ever had the pleasure of reading. She is strong, she fights for what she believes is right, she is smart, she is humble, self confident. And she’s also such a great friend, she includes people and yeah, she’s my kind of heroine for sure! Maxim is a fantastic character as well. He has principles, and he keeps them – even when in some ways […]

#OctobeRec Fest Review #2 ~ Hounded ~ Kevin Hearne

#OctobeRec Fest Review #2 ~ Hounded ~ Kevin Hearne

Welcome to OctobeRec Fest. I started this as a nod to Oktoberfest (books & beer…heaven, am I right?!?) so I’ll spending the month of October reading a few of the many, many books I’ve procured thanks to you, my blogging friends. Title: Hounded Author: Kevin Hearne Recommended by: Kimba @Caffeinated Reviewer, Melanie @Hot Listens Okay, so Hounded could be considered a little outside my usual MO. I mean, there’s no romance. 😉 But Kimba raved about it. So did Melanie. And, there was my blogger wife as well. 😉 So I gave it a go and it was everything they made it out to be. Highlights Characters Oh my do I love Atticus. As a multi-millennia old druid, he’s seen a […]

Audio Review ~ Heidi’s Guide to Four Letter Words ~ Tara Sivec & Andi Arndt

Audio Review ~ Heidi’s Guide to Four Letter Words ~ Tara Sivec & Andi Arndt

Heidi’s Guide to Four Letter Words was, in a word, hysterical. If you’ve read Tara Sivec before, you know you’re going to get laugh-out-loud humor. And even though Heidi’s story was a joint effort with Andi Arndt, there was plenty of humor. Seriously. Heidi is a good girl. She’s not a prude and the word prim comes to mind but that feels derogatory. I think she’s been sheltered and has always done what was expected of her. A good girl. So when she finds herself at a crossroads, thanks to being fired from her position as a kindergarten teacher, she chooses the road less traveled. Now, that wasn’t intentional on Heidi’s part but it was a hilarious journey. And you’ll […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Johnny ~ JA Huss

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Johnny ~ JA Huss

In Johnny, everything became clear. Er…sort of. Well, I understand Johnny better anyway. It was quite a crazy ride. And although I didn’t think it was possible, Johnny became my favorite Bossy brother. 😉 LOL, yeah, we sure did get some answers, but things didn’t exactly get all that clear anyway. I do agree that we got to understand Johnny better, and he actually became my favorite Bossy brother, too. Who would have thought? You and I agreeing like that 😉 I don’t know what I thought was going to happen when Johnny set off on this mission but it wasn’t rescuing a girl left in a dungeon to die. So I was immediately on edge. But I did appreciate […]
