#Review Only You – Denise Grover Swank

#Review Only You – Denise Grover Swank

Only You has a lot of humor, flirty dialogues and characters who think they should stay far away from anything that resembles love… Romantic comedy at is finest – Only You fits the bill, for sure. Between the whirlwind romance, the reluctant couple, the dragon-lady mother-in-law from hell and the fact that Holly didn’t really trust anyone, everything seemed to indicate that there were too many obstacles in the way of happiness for Kevin and Holly. While there is a lot of fun and lightness in Only You, there are some more serious themes explored as well. Like the fact that Holly’s parents were killed in a car accident when she was only five. Or how her grandmother, who raised her […]

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: Falling for His Duchess – Donna Cummings

Review: Falling for His Duchess – Donna Cummings

Falling for His Duchess is a very tender and humorous story, I loved getting to know Julian and Rosalinde, their love-story was so sweet! Cummings always brings a smile to my face with her stories, and Falling for His Duchess is no different! Rosalinde was left alone at the country inn when she was there for her elopement, and Julian completely caught her off balance. The fact that Aphrodite and Ares were close-by, playing their little games did not make things easy for the protagonists, especially Julian. The Duke had left London behind to get away from all the match-making mothers and daughters who were all after him for his title alone. He wanted someone to love him for him […]

Review: Right – Jana Aston

Review: Right – Jana Aston

Right was so much fun to read, and it did give me other feels as well – I have to admit to some tears at one point, even. I loved getting to know Everly better, she’s even more amazing up close and personal than she was as Sophie’s friend in Wrong! I can’t believe how much I laughed while reading Right! Everly is a hoot, and I’d love to be friends with her – especially if I didn’t need her meddling… Because she was very good at meddling in her friends’ lives – it all came from a good place, but the results weren’t always what she anticipated when she started out with her plans. I was already pretty curious […]

Review: Nobody But You – Jill Shalvis

Review: Nobody But You – Jill Shalvis

WOW – Shalvis has outdone herself with Nobody But You! Jacob and Sophie are such great characters, even if they were both pretty closed off to the world at the beginning of the story. Sweet, tender, sexy, humourous and sometimes a little sad, I couldn’t stop reading, and I loved every moment. I really didn’t think any of the Kincaid siblings would appeal to me more than Hud did, but Jacob managed to steal the first place in my reading heart! Because he was a little bit broken from the war, but also because he was very sensitive and straight-forward, I fell for him even faster than Sophie did! Nobody But You is a beautiful love story, and I have […]

Review: Hawke – Sawyer Bennett

Review: Hawke – Sawyer Bennett

Everybody knows I love Cold Fury Hockey, and Hawke, he definitely made me melt, but then, so did Vale! Hawke’s story is very complicated, because he and Vale were together for four years when they were younger, up until the day he left Sydney for Pittsburg to play professional hockey. Then, she told him she didn’t love him, and she never looked back. Fast forward several years, and they meet again, when Hawke starts playing for Cold Fury Hockey, and Vale is the new PT / physiotherapist for the club. All of his feelings of betrayal and hurt come back to the surface, while at the same time he just can’t help but feel utterly attracted to her. The story […]

Review: The Consequence of Loving Colton – Rachel Van Dyken

Review: The Consequence of Loving Colton – Rachel Van Dyken

The Consequence of Loving Colton almost reads like a parody of NA romance, anything that can go wrong goes wrong, there are shenanigans and out there characters, and still, there’s some hotness and tension as well. I think I might have enjoyed The Consequence of Loving Colton more if it had been labeled as a parody, because I’m all for making fun of genres – even my favorite genres. However, this was really out there, and there was no real plot or story, just a whole lot of weird and sometimes very funny situations happening. Between Milo and Colton, there were so many misunderstandings and misconceptions I lost count after the first chapter. It was the epitome of people not […]

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: Unconventional – Avery Aster

Review: Unconventional – Avery Aster

Unconventional is a hot, fun and yes, very unconventional read. Fans of Avery’s Manhattanites will love Unconventional, both because of the humour that is familiar to them and because characters they already know are a part of the story. Rocco and Luigi have been feeling that Jemma has withdrawn from the both in recent months, and while they understand that she has been under a lot of pressure, they want to add a little on their own – they want to marry her and be a family, the three of them together. The story is a little over the top, but it’s hot, and it’s filled with quite a bit of humour, so I quite enjoyed myself! Because I’m not […]

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 […]
