Review: Lessons in Pleasure – Victoria Dahl

Review: Lessons in Pleasure – Victoria Dahl

Lessons In Pleasure shows just how long we have come, as women, since the time at which this novel is set. Well written, hot and passionate – and even with such a short story, the characters were well fleshed out and relatable. Lessons in Pleasure is a novella set in the past, when ladies weren’t supposed to have any sexual pleasure, when men had their needs, and their wives were supposed to close their eyes and think of England. Women who were passionate were seen as eccentric at best – insane at worst, and always, always, men held the keys to their future. James really wanted his wife to like him, but he hadn’t the slightest idea how to make […]

Review: Don’t Tempt Me – Lori Foster

Review: Don’t Tempt Me – Lori Foster

Don’t Tempt Me is all about new beginnings, courage, friendship and family. Sometimes, you grow up with a great family surrounding you, other times, you just have to make your own family – surround yourself by people you love and who love you back. The latter was the case for Honor in Don’t Tempt Me. Because she moved to stay closer to her dying grand-dad, Honor really didn’t have much tame for herself. Between her job, going to the nursery home in the middle of the night and trying to do some work on her house, she was a very busy lady. She still managed to get closer to her neighbors little by little, though, in big part thanks to […]

Review: The Purest Hook – Scarlett Cole

Review: The Purest Hook – Scarlett Cole

While The Purest Hook was very well written, I found it to be more predictable than the prior stories in the series, and that took away from my overall enjoyment of the hotness that was Pix and Dred. From the first Second Circle Tattoo book, I’ve been in love with this universe, the rugged characters who have hidden depths, and the nicely paced way Ms. Cole has to deliver her stories. I was very curious about Pix and her backstory, and it was definitely dark and gritty, which, in turn made me fall even harder for her 🙂 There were parts of the story that were supposed to be mysterious, though, and those were things I figured out within very […]

Review: Sweet Little Lies – Jill Shalvis

Review: Sweet Little Lies – Jill Shalvis

Sweet Little Lies is a fantastic start to Shalvis’ new series. There is romance galore, as well as friendship, humor and loyalty as well. As soon as I started reading Sweet Little Lies, I knew I was going to fall in love with it! First of all, the romantic interest’s name is Finn *sighs* and he owns an Irish bar *double-sighs* and he’s loyal to a fault, strong and hardworking. Plus, he’s very easy on the eyes. The way Pru described him to me showed me I was going to love her as well. She’s been through a lot, none of it her won fault, and because she’s felt so much guilt over her parents’ mistakes, she’s made it her […]

Review : Mr Romantic – J. A. Huss

Review : Mr Romantic – J. A. Huss

Mr. Romantic is a little bit like a dark story, with characters you feel like you may have met before, and in which the big bad wolf isn’t a real character, but rather the characters’ past, getting ready to eat them all… My first reaction after I finished reading Mr. Romantic was ‘Holy mind fuck Batman!’ because that’s what this story was. Like Ivy, I never really knew if Nolan was serious or not and that kept me on the edge of my seat and made it quite hard to breathe at times. This story covers some very dark themes, even if a lot of the action is quite light-hearted. And I don’t think the sexual fantasy part of the […]

Blogtour Review: Beauty Inc. – Tara Lain

Blogtour Review: Beauty Inc. – Tara Lain

I absolutely loved Beauty, Inc. – it’s one of the best Beauty and the Beast re-tellings I’ve ever read, and I was immediately swept off my feet by both Belle and Magnus. Tara Lain’s Pennymaker Tales series is truly amazing! I loved spending some time with Belle and Magnus, and Beauty, Inc. was a tale that got me thinking about the fact that we often need to look deeper than what we see at first sight. There is strong friendships and loyalty in this story, and there is family who doesn’t act like family, but friends who do act like family. There are some strong, very smart characters, and some important messages about what is important in life. A great […]

Review: Sugar Daddy – Sawyer Bennett

Review: Sugar Daddy – Sawyer Bennett

Sugar Daddy is well done! Sela has a lot on her mind, and she is ready to do what it takes to get revenge! Only, Beck kind of throws her for a loop, with his charming personality and how he’s able to give her feelings she never thought she’d ever have. When I started Sugar Daddy, I didn’t think I’d get the hotness factor I received! Sela seemed so set on revenge, I thought there wouldn’t be any kind of connection between her and Beck, but man, I was so wrong! As Beck and Sela got to know each other better – both in bed and out of it – their relationship became something Sela could count on. And she […]

Review: Wicked Need – Sawyer Bennett

Review: Wicked Need – Sawyer Bennett

Wicked Need is HOT! And it’s also very tender. And there’s some danger and quite a bit of self-doubt. With Wicked Need, Bennett took the tension and the hotness up yet another notch! I felt both sorry for Cat, and was angry at her expense because of what she’d been through with her old-ass husband, and things didn’t exactly get better for her once he kicked the bucket, either. And I was so surprised by Rand’s knight in shining armour complex! He seemed so detached in the prior books in the Wicked Horse series, I wasn’t sure he had it in him to be so caring, even if I knew he wasn’t judgemental! He was the perfect champion for Cat, […]

Review: Let Me Count the Ways – P.G. Forte

Review: Let Me Count the Ways – P.G. Forte

Let me count the ways I loved this story! It is fun and playful, with mature characters who deserve to have love in their lives. Let Me Count the Ways is well written and leaves the reader never knowing what will happen next, yet very eager to learn. P G Forte masterfully brings the reader closer to Clare and Mike as the story unfolds. Even when a terrifying incident brings them closer only to totally tear them apart… All is not lost. Both Clare and Mike are insecure without much of a reason to be. Their encounters go from funny and light, to hot and heavy, to fighting and wanting to never see each other again. Clare meets her accountant […]

Review: A SEAL’s Touch – Tawny Weber

Review: A SEAL’s Touch – Tawny Weber

A SEAL’s Touch made me tingle all over – I love a good friends to lovers story, and Weber delivered on all the things I enjoy with that particular romance trope. Not only do I love friends to lovers, I love it even more when the two friends are completely unaware of how attractive the other person finds them 🙂 Of course, the fact that they already enjoy each other’s company is a huge added bonus, and the sexy and funny banter between Taylor and Cat was off the charts. A SEAL’s Touch can be read as a standalone, as there are only glimpses of other characters from other books in the series. The humour was a big part of […]
