Review: Fighting Dirty – Lori Foster

Review: Fighting Dirty – Lori Foster

Fighting Dirty is as close to perfection as a story can be! Armie and Rissy *sighs* Fighting Dirty is among my most anticipated books for 2016, and Lori Foster outdid herself! I have been longing for Armie and Merissa’s story ever since I met them in the first Ultimate book. The tension between the two of them kept increasing and in their own book, it was palpable. I loved getting to now both of them better, especially how they reacted when they were under pressure. Merissa is a very strong heroine, she was truly put through a lot in Fighting Dirty, but she took most of it in stride, and that made her very dear to me. There is even […]

Review: Touch & Go – Mira Lyn Kelly

Review: Touch & Go – Mira Lyn Kelly

Touch & Go is extremely hot, and I loved how Sam and Ava had been friends since they were kids, both of them hanging on to their friendship when their hormones told them there could be much more for them in store. Touch & Go is one of the best friends to lovers romances I have ever had the pleasure of reading! Sam and Ava had chemistry galore, but they were both hiding behind their long friendship, until that just wasn’t possible anymore. When Sam agreed to be Ava’s ‘date’ to a party at her workplace, to keep a colleague from continuing to try to pick her up, they shared one of the hottest kisses in history, and let’s just […]

Review: Irresistible Refrain – Michelle Mankin

Review: Irresistible Refrain – Michelle Mankin

Irresistible Refrain is an irresistible story of a broken girl and the boy she’s loved since she was little. Music, a fast-paced life and the fact that she’s with his best friend instead of him made this so compelling! Lace was so very lost, and being back in the Tempest tour bus didn’t really change any of that. Even as she had been away from the band for a long time, she picked up her relationship with War as soon as she came back, even if Bryan was looking at her differently than usual at this time. Irresistible Refrain showed the ugly side of the music industry, especially when it came to War and Lace. Drug-use, not taking care of […]

Review: Firsts – Laurie Elizabeth Flynn

Review: Firsts – Laurie Elizabeth Flynn

Firsts is an emotional read, told from Mercedes’ point of view. Mercy keeps everyone she knows at arms’ length, and wants to be in control. As the story unfolds, it becomes very clear why that is, and my heart broke for her. The ending was a little ‘too easy’ for me, wrapped up too nicely for such a dark and gritty story. Mercy’s story in Firsts is one of an abandoned teen, where after her father left, her mother more or less checked out, and she was left to tend for herself with the strangest parental guidance I have ever read about. Kim, Mercy’s mom, was more interested in how Mercy dressed – for success with the boys – than anything […]

Review: The Fractured Heart – Scarlett Cole

Review: The Fractured Heart – Scarlett Cole

This series is addictive! The Fractured Heart brought a lot of tension and suspense to the table, and I absolutely loved getting to know Brody and Drea better! I thought I already knew Drea and Cujo (Brody) from their appearances in The Strongest Steel, however, there was so much more to both of them than the bordering on mean teasing, and the way they did their best to stay clear of each other. In The Fractured Heart, I got a very good understanding of why they were both shying away from a relationship. They were both amazing, loyal friends to other people, but they didn’t feel like a romantic relationship was for them. Seeing the reasons behind this, through a […]

Review: Wrong – Jana Aston

Review: Wrong – Jana Aston

Wrong is filled with a lot of humor, a dash of romance, and lot and lots of hot kinkiness. I love Sophie and Luke – even if their relationship was definitely wrong 😉 I didn’t know what to think of Wrong when I read the summary, I already knew Ms. Aston had a great sense of humor and a dirty mind, though, so I was pretty sure I would get some good laughs. And that, I did! I laughed out loud in several instances, and my 13-year-old son asked me why – and I just couldn’t answer. Some things are definitely not for young ears. Sophie was a very quirky heroine, but one I really enjoyed, and that’s really saying […]
