ARC Review: The Seduction Expert – Saya Lopez Ortega

ARC Review: The Seduction Expert – Saya Lopez Ortega

The Seduction Expert is a very strange book. There’s no real story here – but the main character could have been interesting – if she had a personality. I don’t even begin to know what to say about The Seduction Expert, it kind of feels like I said everything in my first sentence. There really is nothing going on, just a long stream of consciousness from ‘The Baroness’. Whose real name was never shared – not that I really cared or wanted to know, but that was another strange thing. Also, the summary is nothing at all like the actual story of The Seduction Expert, which is too bad. That is rather enticing, and could have been a good tale […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Jesse ~ JA Huss

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Jesse ~ JA Huss

Man! I don’t know how Huss does it, wifey! Jesse seemed like it was going to be a good, old-fashioned, contemporary romance with some revenge humor and second-chances rolled in. Then it became something else. Something more. And I absolutely enjoyed the ride! I loved all of these things, too, wifey! I just found it to be a twist between romcom and romantic suspense, and I adored it. So funny. Right off the bat, I fell for Jesse. Yes, he’s a bit arrogant but you could see his vulnerability underneath that facade. That endeared him to me. Your first impressions? I did, too. The way he wanted to not be seen as the ‘asshole’ brother, and not understanding why he […]

Review: Consume Me – Geneva Lee

Review: Consume Me – Geneva Lee

Consume Me blew me away! I enjoyed the first two books in Royal World, but this one was really top notch. In Consume Me, I felt like both Alexander and Clara grew a lot, and there were several good reasons for that. The intrigue was thicker, the betrayals cut deeper, and the ones who could help helped even more than was expected of them. The political part of Consume Me also appeared more realistic to me, especially with a secret society there to make or break the king. Plus, Alexander finally had to face not only his fears, but his past as well, and that’s something he needed to do. The suspense and the mystery in Consume me was very […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ High Tide ~ Michelle Mankin

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ High Tide ~ Michelle Mankin

Oh my! High Tide was akin to a roller coaster ride. It started kinda slowly, making its way around those warm-up curves and dips. Things changed once we hit that big hill, building tension and anxiety. Once we went over? Well all I can say is you better hang on! There is so much I want to say about High Tide but can’t because it would spoil the story. And this is one to be experienced, I think. It definitely is a story to be experienced, and it’s going to be hard to chat about this one and still keep everyone reading our review from being spoiled… but we’ll manage, I’m sure 😉  As I said, things started off a […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Big Dicker ~ KC Cross

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Big Dicker ~ KC Cross

I think I might have enjoyed Big Dicker even more, wifey Jimmy is a hoot! And Delphi is a good match for him. 😉 I definitely enjoyed this one more. So funny, and I loved how nobody manages to pronounce his name correctly. It makes me giggle every single time! First, I just want to say that I thought it was awesome Xyla was getting a girl’s vacay! I admire the fact that Jimmy and his brothers see the bots as “people” who have rights and deserve respect. I don’t know if Cross is making a statement there but I like that anti-discrimination/prejudice is such an integral element anyway. What do you think? I love that bots are seen as […]

ARC Review ~ Taken by Storm ~ Cat Schield

ARC Review ~ Taken by Storm ~ Cat Schield

Taken by Storm is the second installment in the Dynasties: Secrets of the A-List series – a collection of stories each told by a different author. CSchield is a new-to-me author and I was eager to “meet” her as well as continue the story which began in Tempted by Scandal. Taken by Storm not only continued the overall story, but continued Liam and Teresa’s story as well as delivering the romance between Isabel and Shane. I truly enjoyed watching Isabel and Shane’s romance blossom. Isabel is the epitome of a romantic. Her job at The Opulence Hotel as the romance concierge capitalizes on those traits. She’s sweet and hard-working but she also has a bite. I admired that she wouldn’t […]

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 […]

ARC Review ~ Under the Northern Lights ~ S.C. Stephens #COYER

ARC Review ~ Under the Northern Lights ~ S.C. Stephens #COYER

I admit to requesting Under the Northern Lights based on having read other books from Stephens. Had I known exactly what I was getting, I might not have chosen to read it. That being said, I have to say I’m happy to have met this “other side” of Stephens. The story centers around Mallory and Michael. Mallory’s plane crashes (she was flying solo) in remote Alaska. Fearing her chances of survival are slim in the harsh conditions, she’s surprised when she’s essentially rescued by a mountain man. Michael. He can offer her food and shelter but transportation home has to wait as winter begins to really sink her claws into the area. As Mallory and Michael spend days, weeks, then […]

Review: Mrs. Everything – Jennifer Weiner

Review: Mrs. Everything – Jennifer Weiner

Mrs. Everything spans over several decades, following Bethie and Jo, two sisters born after the 2nd world war, living their childhood in Detroit. Story: With Mrs. Everything – Weiner managed to weave a story in which two sisters growing up in the fifties have to deal with a lot of different things… being Jewish in a place where they don’t always feel like they belong is one of them. Jo also had to deal with knowing she liked girls – and that that was ‘unnatural’. Bettie only wanted to stay beautiful and thin when she was a teen, because she wanted to be a star. Of course, their dreams didn’t come true. As in real life – life happened, and […]

Blogger Wife New Release Chat Review ~ Booty Hunter ~ KC Cross (JA Huss)

Blogger Wife New Release Chat Review ~ Booty Hunter ~ KC Cross (JA Huss)

I have to admit, wifey, I had a great time with Booty Hunter. The characters were awesome, it was funny, it was suspenseful, and it was HOT! Good times all around. 😉 I agree, wifey! The humor actually had me laughing out loud more than once! I loved Harem Station, because what a novel place to include in a story, right? Especially as the story unfolded and things weren’t exactly as they seemed. In the beginning, I was trying too hard to compare this to Huss’ Junco series. I hate that I do that – compare – but I couldn’t seem to help it. Anyway, once I stopped comparing and let Booty Hunter be its own thing, I really got […]
