Review: Love In Secrets – Scarlett Cole

Review: Love In Secrets – Scarlett Cole

Love In Secrets is a perfect friends-to-lovers story, with a ton of chemistry, a whole lot of heat, and a little heart-ache. Love In Secrets is one of those stories where I loved everything! I loved the characters and their back stories. I loved the setting. I loved the romantic elements between Cassie and Jake. And most of all, I loved that Cassie was so true to herself. From start to finish. Cassie had to come back home urgently after her dad was in an accident, and her old friend Jake came to pick her up at the airport. He comforted her and let her stay at his place. What neither of them expected were the sparks. And the chemistry […]

Review: The Girl With Stars in Her Eyes – Xio Axelrod

Review: The Girl With Stars in Her Eyes – Xio Axelrod

The Girl with Stars in Her Eyes is an amazing story, following Toni B from when she was only twelve years old. I don’t even know where to start with The Girl With Stars in Her Eyes! Axelrod did amazing with this novel, that’s for sure! The characters were very realistic, and my feeling were involved from the beginning. Toni knew the backside of fame, and she wanted nothing to do with it. Toni’s hopes and dreams were crushed more than once. First when her mom sent her away to look for fame on her own. Then, when her dad, Mo, didn’t really seem to care about having her around. Finally, when Seb up and left without telling her – […]

Review: Lost Love Trilogy – Belle Brooks

Review: Lost Love Trilogy – Belle Brooks

Thirty Days / Lost Love has received quite an overhaul, and I for one, am very happy about that! There is still a lot going on, however, the story is faster paced, and there are more clues to Abigail and what is going on with her. Of course, realizing that she has retrograde amnesia is not easy for her. Especially because her best friend, her mum, and other people have been keeping the truth from her. This is apparently something that is common – amnesic people should remember on their own, so as to not make anything worse for them. There is a love story here, and I have the feeling it’s going to be a big one! Marcus was […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Dirty Empire ~ Nina West

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Dirty Empire ~ Nina West

Sigh. Wifey, I thought we were going to get the conclusion to Mercy and Gabriel’s story with Dirty Empire. Alas, there’s one more book to come. Good thing, NWest put enough goodness and suspense in Dirty Empire to keep me satisfied while I wait. 😉 Oh my gosh! This was such an intense book! So much was going on. And I agree, I thought this would be the conclusion as well. And now, we have to wait until September :O   After the ending of the last book, I figured Mercy would be freaked. And rightfully so. She’s had some difficult things to consider when it comes to her feelings for Gabriel and where she wants this relationship to go. […]

Review: Archangel’s Sun – Nalini Singh

Review: Archangel’s Sun – Nalini Singh

In Archangel’s Sun, an Archangel who is known for being strong, and an artist who is thought to be weak have to fight the reborn together to save the world. Archangel’s Sun in which Singh so totally did it again! I have loved her Guild Hunter series from the start, and even now, after all this time, it keeps getting better with each book! I mean, Brandee, my co-blogger (or blogger-wife) and I face-timed tonight, when I was at around 60% through the novel, and I kept telling her that Titus and Shari were screaming at me to hang up with her and keep up with their story 😉 Shari is the Hummingbird – Illium’s illustrious, artistic, but apparently broken […]

Review: The Gilded Wolves – Roshani Chokshi

Review: The Gilded Wolves – Roshani Chokshi

The Gilded Wolves is an intricate fantasy set in an alternate historical Paris, where Sèverin and his friends follow mysterious clues to try to salvage their future. The Gilded Wolves hit all the right spots for me! The fantasy elements really spoke to me, the forging being almost magical, in that some of the characters could infuse objects to do different things. There was also a mysterious order, where the matriarch or patriarch of a family had to wear a special ring that was more or less embedded to their finger. The Characters were well rounded – I loved Sèverin, Tristan, Enrique, Hypnos, Zofia and Laila all had their flaws, but they all had their strengths, too. The Gilded Wolves […]

Review: The Player Next Door – K.A. Tucker

Review: The Player Next Door – K.A. Tucker

Second chance at love is one of my favorite romance tropes, and The Player Next Door depicted a beautiful story between two people who had been apart for 13 years, and who still had obstacles in their path. The Player Next Door was a fun, cute, hot and flirty story, and I loved Scarlet and Shane from the beginning. I also loved Scarlet’s friends, Justine and Becca, they brought both comic relief and friendship to the table, and they were definitely there for Scarlet. At first, Scarlet was angry at seeing Shane again, and she was sure there was no way she could ever trust him again. However, he was very good at flirting, and being a good guy, now […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Tempt Me ~ Nina West

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Tempt Me ~ Nina West

I don’t know what exactly it was about Tempt Me that tempted me, wifey, but I was riveted. Maybe it was the way NWest brought these characters to life. I laughed, gasped, swooned…and I might have panted. 😉 LOL LOL there was definitely some panting going on. And I was so very curious about this whole series, as people either loved it or completely hated it! I know there was a point early on where we were both a little worried we weren’t going to like Abbi. She couldn’t seem to make up her mind and that made her appear weak. The more I got to know her though, the more I identified with her. She was young and really […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review: Kings Rising – C.S. Pacat

Blogger Wife Chat Review: Kings Rising – C.S. Pacat

In Kings Rising, the intrigue was even more present, the betrayals even more stinging, and the plot completely unpredictable.  First of all, can I just say wow to this series? Kings Rising was very well done! The intrigue, the new fragile peace between Laurent and Damen, the betrayals. It was hard to catch my breath while reading.  I couldn’t agree more, wifey. I couldn’t have anticipated how much I enjoyed Damen and Laurent’s story. It all was so well done!   Before we truly chat though, I have to mention that I felt a little unfulfilled with the ending. It was too abrupt for me, like maybe 20 pages more and I would have been satisfied. Did you enjoy the […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review: Prince’s Gambit – C. S. Pacat

Blogger Wife Chat Review: Prince’s Gambit – C. S. Pacat

Prince’s Gambit was filled with intrigue, betrayal, action, and planning for war.  I had to catch my breath reading Prince’s Gambit! The action was even faster. And the intrigue as well as the betrayals were just amazing, don’t you think? Oh, they both were so amazing! I didn’t know who to trust or what was going to happen next. The action was faster in this installment and while most of the story had me tied in knots, Pacat did manage to make me laugh a few times. 🙂   Both Damen and Laurent grew in this novel too! What new information about them did you enjoy the most? I thought that in some ways, they were more similar than they […]
