Review ~ A Fall of Water ~ Elizabeth Hunter

Review ~ A Fall of Water ~ Elizabeth Hunter

A Fall of Water was the perfect ending to B & Gio’s story, as well as the Elemental Mysteries series. EHunter brought things to a very satisfying conclusion without it being trite. She also setting the stage for the two (?) spinoff series in such a way as to ensure I continue on with these characters. 🙂 Special thanks, once again, to Lenore of Celebrity Readers for buddy reading with me. *mwah* Everything has been leading up to this final book. The culmination of it all was exhilarating, gut-wrenching, and riveting. B and Gio spend much time apart as they deal with politics and locating allies required in order to prevent a war as well as the release of a […]

Review ~ The Force of Wind ~ Elizabeth Hunter

Review ~ The Force of Wind ~ Elizabeth Hunter

OH. MY. GOODNESS. EHunter continues to hold me captive with this series. Maybe it’s just me but I feel like this series keeps getting better. I was so eager to crack open this book but I could never have prepared for all it contained. Gah! So intense! The Force of Wind kept me riveted with this installment. I was alternately biting my nails, tearing up, and swooning. The Force of Wind puts the romance between B and Gio on the back burner in favor of lots of action. It begins with B and Gio traveling to China – yet another fantastic locale. They’re meeting Tenzin there for a conference with is essentially the ruling council of vampires. The surprises that […]

Can You Read a Series in a Month? Review ~ Wild ~ Sophie Jordan

Can You Read a Series in a Month? Review ~ Wild ~ Sophie Jordan

Yay! I can read a series in a month! 😀 Special thanks to BerlsSC for buddy reading The Ivy Chronicles with me. I don’t read NA much anymore but I have to say that SJordan writes it well. This series is extraordinary – well-written, excellent character development, and authentic plot lines. I enjoyed every minute. Y’all know I adored Foreplay and Tease. But Wild? Wild was on a whole other level. 😉 Georgia is the steadiest of the trio of girls in this series. She’s a good girl, from a good family (as long as you don’t recall that her birth father, a musician, abandoned them). She has a solid, parent-approved (some might say dictated?) plan for her future. She’s […]

Can You Read a Series in a Month? Review ~ Tease ~ Sophie Jordan

Can You Read a Series in a Month? Review ~ Tease ~ Sophie Jordan

Remembering Foreplay like I do despite it being 9 years since I read it, I had high expectations of Tease. SJordan did a stellar job in meeting those expectations, only falling short in one minor area. Overall though, I loved Emerson and Shaw’s story. Emerson is such a great character. She’s loyal and kind and always has her friends’ backs. That’s what made me sad about how Tease opened because Emerson wasn’t receiving those in return from someone who was supposedly a friend. However, she did meet Shaw so, silver lining. 😉 But I digress. Emerson works hard at presenting herself as carefree, in control, and relatively happy. If she keeps her facade in place and her walls up, no […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ The Girl in the Mist ~ Kristen Ashley

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ The Girl in the Mist ~ Kristen Ashley

Wifey, I was most impressed with The Girl in the Mist, KA’s first foray into true romantic suspense. Of course, she’s not disappointed me yet with any genre she’s dipped her toe into. What did you think overall? Did she win you over? Is that a real question, wifey? Like, yeah, of course she won me over – I loved it! It was so well done.    One thing that impressed me most was the fact that although I knew KA was dropping hints, leaving clues, and throwing red herrings, I didn’t have a clue whodunit. Oh, I had myriad theories but I was surprised at the reveal. Did you figure out whodunit? I did not figure out whodunit at […]

Review ~ A Hidden Fire ~ Elizabeth Hunter

Review ~ A Hidden Fire ~ Elizabeth Hunter

If I hadn’t read other books from EHunter, I’d feel a lot worse for not having gotten to A Hidden Fire sooner. As it is, I’m still kicking myself. But I was thrilled to be able to join Sophia Rose and Lenore (COYER friends) in a buddy read, especially because I was able to chat, moon, and generally wax poetic about how incredible this book is! Beatrice is a heroine after my own heart since she’s studying to be a librarian. 🙂 She lives with her grandmother, having lost her father and then grandfather, and attends school in Houston. Who would have thought her chosen field would lead her to knowledge of what really happened to her dad, a supernatural […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Rockaway Bride & The Hero and the Hacktivist ~ Pippa Grant

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Rockaway Bride & The Hero and the Hacktivist ~ Pippa Grant

Wifey, I didn’t think I was going to like Rockaway Bride as much as its predecessors because it didn’t incorporate the full cast like the first 2 installments did. However, after some reading and thinking, I realized that with Willow being the quiet introvert of this group, this was the only way her story could have been told! YAY I’m so happy you enjoyed this as well! It didn’t incorporate the full cast, but my oh my, it was well done, right?   So, the pre-wedding night…I can’t express how elated I was that she was re-thinking marrying what’s-his-name. (As an aside, I really want to read her step-brothers’ books because I love them!) The shenanigans definitely took an interesting […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Mister McHottie & Stud in the Stacks ~ Pippa Grant

Wifey, thank you SO much for recommending this series. I needed lots of giggles and PGrant and the Girl Band series delivered. I enjoyed this series so, so much, Brandee! I think they kind of saved me in 2021… laughing out loud and following the crazy shenanigans of these characters just made me feel so good.   I have to say that I’m not the biggest fan of hate sex. BUT PGrant made me a fan of Bro & Chase’s version of it! 😉 LOL, Bro and Chase are definitely it… and I thought it was kind of ‘normal’ for them to have hate sex, yeah?   I adore the fact that Bro, or Sia, as she goes by with […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Dream Spinner ~ Kristen Ashley

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Dream Spinner ~ Kristen Ashley

Dream Spinner was a highly anticipated installment in the Dream Team series for me. Let’s start at the surface level before we delve deep into Hattie & Axl, shall we? Yes, let’s do that! I have to admit that I’ve been looking forward to Hattie and Axl’s story from the beginning – or at least since we met them. There seemed something a little deeper about these two and I was keen to explore it. KA had hinted at Hattie’s history so it wasn’t a surprise. Finding out she had indeed suffered abuse – both emotional and physical – at the hands of her father was sickening. Add to that her previous relationships…bad news. That she continued to expose herself […]

Review ~ Birthday Girl ~ Penelope Douglas

Review ~ Birthday Girl ~ Penelope Douglas

Birthday Girl proved yet again how much I enjoy PDouglas’s writing style. Complex, well-drawn characters, genuine-feeling storyline, angst and romance all combined to make a hell of a story. One I was loathe to put down. Jordan hasn’t had many people she could count on in her life. Her mom left her, her dad’s a drunk, and her first boyfriend beat her. It’s her birthday when we meet her and her current boyfriend, who was supposed to pick her up from work, is nowhere to be found. She takes herself to a midnight showing of some 80’s horror flick, and she meets a man. One that intrigues her. One that makes her comfortable and confident. One she’d like to get […]
