Review: Free – Kristen Ashley

Review: Free – Kristen Ashley

Oh my goodness! I just love me some Chaos, and I have to say that Rush and Rebel’s story got to me in every way. These alpha MC men, with their wild, intelligent, and fun women always get to me – but I just adored Free! Free is the last installment in the Chaos series, and it was sad to see some of my favorite characters ever for the last time. It was also a great story, though, so I was completely satisfied when I came to the end. Rush and Rebel were made for each other! She was a strong woman, and she was able to hold her own – both with Rush and with other men. Rush is […]

Review: Overnight Sensation – Sarina Bowen

Review: Overnight Sensation – Sarina Bowen

Overnight Sensation is a fantastic story, about love, loss, and taking responsibility – the characters are very relatable, and I fell in love! Bowen truly did it again with Overnight Sensation! She made me lose a little sleep – because I just had to keep on reading. Her knowledge about hockey, and what happens behind the scenes just made this story even better! Everything that has to be done in and around the rink for both games and practice. All the people who have to work to make it all happen. The way players have to deal with nosy reporters, bloggers, and fans. And how difficult it can be to just stay true to oneself when everyone appears to be […]

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 […]

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 […]

Review: The Accidentals – Sarina Bowen

Review: The Accidentals – Sarina Bowen

The Accidentals had everything I love in a romance. There was heartache, there was happiness, there were awkward reunions, and sharp humor. Plus, there was a whole lot of music! Story: The Accidentals is a masterpiece of feelings. It was also a different kind of romance, because the main story wasn’t about the romance – it was about family and loss. And it was also about finding what had seemed lost forever. Plus, the music made me swoon… Because music was a very important part of The Accidentals, and it added more layers to both the characters and the story itself. Rachel had been to hell and back, and living in a group home was not her idea of being […]

Review: Rebel Hard – Nalini Singh

Review: Rebel Hard – Nalini Singh

Rebel Hard was such a swoon-worthy story. Trying to stay within their families’ and culture’s tradition, Nayna and Raj had their work cut of for them! But what a beautiful path they were on! Story: Singh always makes me swoon – and she did so with Rebel Hard as well. I loved this peek into Indian customs in New Zealand. How many young people choose to follow traditions, but not completely to the letter. And while parents might seem to hold all the power, that was not always the case here. The two main characters were so relatable – even if I don’t really have much in common with them apart from being human. And that’s legacy to the writing. […]

Review: Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating – Christina Lauren

Review: Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating – Christina Lauren

Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating is my favorite friends to lovers story ever! They are both golden, and I adore them! Story: Josh and Hazel had nothing much in common at first glance, on second glance, however, they were perfect for each other. After they knew each other in college, they lost sight of each other for ten years. Until Hazel’s best friend had a welcome summer BBQ. And Josh was there – because he was Emily’s sister. Little by little, Josh and Hazel became friends, and their friendship was strong. They are both very loyal, and only wanted the best for the other. Because Josh left his girlfriend after they had known each other again only for […]

Review: The Chase – Elle Kennedy

Review: The Chase – Elle Kennedy

The Chase was so good! My emotions were totally involved from the start, and I have to say that Fitz and Summer were the perfect couple. The introvert with the shining star made me all hot and bothered – plus they made me laugh. Story: We got a little glimpse of Summer and Fitz in Kennedy’s last Off Campus novel, and I was so excited for The Chase. My excitement was completely warranted, too, and right now, all I want to do is squee with happiness. I loved this first foray into the new series, because the characters were so refreshing. I loved how Summer tried to better herself. After struggling with dyslexia her whole life, coming to a new […]

Release Day Chat Review ~ Children of the Forgotten Gods ~ Kennedy Daly #2018NewRelease #COYER

Release Day Chat Review ~ Children of the Forgotten Gods ~ Kennedy Daly  #2018NewRelease #COYER

Thank you so much for turning me onto this book, wifey! It was a fantastic read! It was action-packed with a compelling story and engaging characters. Gah! I FLOVED it! What I need to know is: When is the next one coming?!? Okay, on to the chat… I was hooked from the beginning, and I know you were as well. What was it that drew you straight into this story? I think I was initially drawn in with the action…Daly had me curious from the get-go about Damien. But the characters are what, or rather who, really drew me in. I liked how close-knit they were and I was intrigued with their abilities, their dynamics, and their responsibilities to their […]

ARC Review: Bishop – Sawyer Bennett

ARC Review: Bishop – Sawyer Bennett

Bishop was amazing! I’m so happy Ms. Bennett is branching out with more hockey-players – and both Bishop and Brooke really did it for me. Story: There’s a little bit of suspense with Brooke’s friend Nanette, and a whole lot of awesome hockey-talk, relationships between the players, and within the organization at large. Of course, the whole hockey setting is partly what I loved about Bishop, however, the characters really did it for me as well! There’s a certain camaraderie among these players, who were let go by their team to start a new team in Arizona. Because Brooke wanted to make sure her father, the coach, wouldn’t be unfair to Bishop, she pretended they were engaged when her father […]
