Review: Love Hard – Nalini Singh

Review: Love Hard – Nalini Singh

Love Hard is a beautiful, heartfelt story where Jules and Jake meet after several years. Their past animosity is at the fore-front, however, their undeniable chemistry can’t be ignored. As always, Singh’s writing speaks directly to my heart. Love Hard had all the ingredients for a fantastic romance. Jake and Jules were not friends in high-school. They barely tolerated each other, and made do with barbs and teasing, just to show Callie that they might do an effort for her. When they meet again, the chemistry between them takes them both by surprise. And they also do their very best to ignore it. Because he’s a single father, Jake is not a typical, famous rugby-player. He’s very private, and he […]

Review: Wild at Heart – K.A. Tucker

Review: Wild at Heart – K.A. Tucker

Wild at Heart is one of those sequels when you are amazed from start to finish – because it’s even better than the first book, and your heart is full. The character development in Wild at Heart is astounding. Both Calla and Jonah grow so much, and while I already loved them before, the way they grew made me love them even more! Moving is never easy, and they both ended up moving to make their own home in a new place. In some ways, I felt that the move was easier on Jonah, because he was still a pilot. Calla had no idea what she wanted to do, and so she did what she could to make sure Jonah […]

Review: Heartland – Sarina Bowen

Review: Heartland – Sarina Bowen

Heartland pulled at my heartstrings – the friends to lovers trope, the slow burn, and the amazing chemistry made my heart both gooey and achy! Bowen always manages to write stories that bring out all the feels, and Heartland is no exception to that! Chastity was so innocent in many ways – as she had been free from the religious cult she was born into for only two years. In other ways, though, she was both strong and independent. Plus she was definitely motivated to make a good life for herself. The fact that she was in love with Dylan didn’t just complicate her life though, it also made it better in many ways. Heartland is a story with two […]

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 […]

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 […]

ARC Review: Sapphire Flames – Ilona Andrews

ARC Review: Sapphire Flames – Ilona Andrews

Sapphire Flames brings all the magic, the fights, the intrigue, the romance, and the tension I have gotten used to with the Hidden Legacy series! While I would have loved more Nevada and Rogan, I have to say Sapphire Flames still blew me away. Catalina is definitely a worthy heroine, and I loved how she wanted to take care of things herself. Just so that Nevada and Rogan could have a little alone time. The way the Houses tried to move in on her, and take her out made for a lot of action. In Sapphire Flames, I loved how Alessandro tried to find more with Catalina. She resisted all his advances, though, because she knew that people found themselves […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Lady Luck ~ KC Cross

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Lady Luck ~ KC Cross

Lady Luck upped the suspense a notch or twenty. This series keeps getting better and better. I was excited for Luck’s story and Cross didn’t disappoint. She gave Luck his perfect match in Nyleena and she game just enough clues to have me thinking I might just have some of the answers. Of course, I’m probably wrong. 😉 I loved how the suspense got better, and that while we definitely got answers, we got a lot more questions, too! Ha! I always think I have figured something out, only to realize in the next book that’s not exactly how things were… that’s part of what makes this series so good, though. I thought it was interesting that Nyleena had such a […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Island Side ~ Michelle Mankin

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Island Side ~ Michelle Mankin

Wow! I couldn’t have asked for a better ending for Hollie & Diesel or for this series. Mankin has a way of developing these complex, genuine, and flawed characters that you can’t help but root for. And watching them grow as they struggle to overcome or dig deep to find their inner strength…it’s beautiful. Mankin is also gifted at sharing her love of the ocean, surfing, rock music and the musicians who make it through her lovely prose. Her words paint vivid images of the landscape as well as visceral emotions. I’m sad to see this series end because I’m going to miss these characters! I’m sad it’s over, too – and I think I’ll do a re-read before BookBonanza, […]

Review: Twice in a Blue Moon – Christina Lauren

Review: Twice in a Blue Moon – Christina Lauren

Twice in a Blue Moon was fantastic – one of the best second chance romances I have read, and it was so filled with chemistry and tenderness I felt full while reading. What happens when you’re the hidden (not secret) child of Hollywood’s most coveted actor and you go on vacation to London and meet a cute boy? Well, lots of things happen, actually, and Tate broke the one rule her mom and grandma had instilled in her since they moved away from her father. And that had devastating consequences for all of them – but mostly for Tate. Twice in a Blue Moon is a beautifully written, character-driven story, and I enjoyed how Christina Lauren first let us got […]

Review: The Lemon Sisters – Jill Shalvis

Review: The Lemon Sisters – Jill Shalvis

The Lemon Sisters felt like the perfect behind-the-scenes story of a marriage, but also of the relationship sisters can have. The Lemon Sisters follow two sisters – and they lead very different lives. They were both hiding part of their frustrations with their lives, to not burden each other. Until one day, when Mindy shows up unannounced at Brooke’s house. Feeling overwhelmed and tired, Mindy needs a break. And in a way, Brooke does, too. Therefore, the two sisters swap houses for a few days, and Brooke takes Mindy’s kids back to Wildstone, the place where she hasn’t been back in ages. The Lemon Sisters follows Brooke much more closely than Mindy, but that doesn’t mean I didn’t get to […]
