Review: The Risk – Elle Kennedy

Review: The Risk – Elle Kennedy

The Risk was delicious! Reluctant romance is just so sweet – because the buildup makes everything so good. I loved Brenna and Jake – they just kind of clicked. Even if Brenna didn’t want to click with him. At all. I can’t even begin to say how happy I was when I learned that The Risk was going to be Brenna’s and Jake’s story! Especially because they were going to ‘enemy’ schools when it came to ice hockey. With Jake being Harvard’s star player, and Brenna coach Jensen of Briar’s daughter, I just knew there would be some secrecy and slight drama. And it was so delicious! Brenna had this dream of being a sports commentator, and had applied for […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review : In to Her – J.A. Huss

Blogger Wife Chat Review : In to Her – J.A. Huss

I, for one, thought In to Her was really well done! I felt like my mind was twisted and turned in so many directions I could hardly even believe anything would be OK for the characters! I felt the same way, Lex. These characters and their stories had my mind going in circles (or triangles? 😉 ) and I was worried. Huss really has a way with words. And broken characters. And stories that take so many unexpected turns it’s a mind-bend just to try to keep track! What did you think, Brandee? I was really impressed with this one. AJ, Yvette, and Logan were all broken in some way (or many ways) and despite the circumstances of their coming […]

Review: Unbreakable – Emma Scott

Review: Unbreakable – Emma Scott

Unbreakable had some pretty good excitement, very attaching characters, and a story that hurt my heart a little bit Unbreakable was full of feels! Some of them good feelings, other, not so positive. However, a story that can make me both sigh with contentment, and be angry with some of the characters is a good one. There were some rather big relationship complications here, which added another layer to Unbreakable. And I’m not sure it’s a story for everyone. Both Alex and Cory have had their lot of hardship. Their hardship, however, is very different in many ways, and similar in others. Unbreakable shows how hard it can be to live up to expectations. Especially our own, and those of […]

Review: Free – Kristen Ashley

Review: Free – Kristen Ashley

Oh my goodness! I just love me some Chaos, and I have to say that Rush and Rebel’s story got to me in every way. These alpha MC men, with their wild, intelligent, and fun women always get to me – but I just adored Free! Free is the last installment in the Chaos series, and it was sad to see some of my favorite characters ever for the last time. It was also a great story, though, so I was completely satisfied when I came to the end. Rush and Rebel were made for each other! She was a strong woman, and she was able to hold her own – both with Rush and with other men. Rush is […]

Review: Overnight Sensation – Sarina Bowen

Review: Overnight Sensation – Sarina Bowen

Overnight Sensation is a fantastic story, about love, loss, and taking responsibility – the characters are very relatable, and I fell in love! Bowen truly did it again with Overnight Sensation! She made me lose a little sleep – because I just had to keep on reading. Her knowledge about hockey, and what happens behind the scenes just made this story even better! Everything that has to be done in and around the rink for both games and practice. All the people who have to work to make it all happen. The way players have to deal with nosy reporters, bloggers, and fans. And how difficult it can be to just stay true to oneself when everyone appears to be […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review: Rough Edge – CD Reiss

Blogger Wife Chat Review: Rough Edge – CD Reiss

Lexxie and I are reading CD Reiss’ The Edge series for the Can You Read a Series in a Month? Challenge. We’re trying to be as vague as possible in our discussions so as not to spoil anything. 😉 Oh wow – I think this series is going to kill me, wifey! After I finished the prequel (which was actually released after Rough Edge!) I was already intrigued and wanted more. But now – now, I know I’m going to binge the rest of this like a mad-woman. What did you think of Caden and Greyson in their civilian lives? I found this part of their romance to be both very dark and very sweet. It just may kill me […]

Review: The Accidentals – Sarina Bowen

Review: The Accidentals – Sarina Bowen

The Accidentals had everything I love in a romance. There was heartache, there was happiness, there were awkward reunions, and sharp humor. Plus, there was a whole lot of music! Story: The Accidentals is a masterpiece of feelings. It was also a different kind of romance, because the main story wasn’t about the romance – it was about family and loss. And it was also about finding what had seemed lost forever. Plus, the music made me swoon… Because music was a very important part of The Accidentals, and it added more layers to both the characters and the story itself. Rachel had been to hell and back, and living in a group home was not her idea of being […]

Review : Wicked Wedding – Sawyer Bennett

Review : Wicked Wedding – Sawyer Bennett

Wicked Wedding is a hot, fast read – with a whirlwind romance, a very bad ex, and a big secret. Story: Wicked Wedding was so hot! And it was also filled with quite a bit of humor. And if you’ve read any of the Wicked Horse Vegas books, you know some of the side characters that show up in this story. I loved both Drew and Brynne, but especially Drew! He was hit by lightening when he met Brynne. And she thought she was having the second worst day of her life – until it became one of the better days instead. All thanks to Drew and his very unconventional proposal Meeting by chance, both on their way from a […]

Review ~ Breach ~ K.I. Lynn

Review ~ Breach ~ K.I. Lynn

  Oh my! So I read Breach because it’s been hanging around on my kindle for, um, a few years, and because K.I. Lynn was attending Bookish Denver (summer of 2017) so I decided it was high time I get this one read! And, as happens often, I’m kicking myself for not having read it sooner! Y’all, I’m almost vibrating in anticipation of the next books in the series (luckily I bought the boxset at some point) because I HAVE TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS NEXT! Highlights: Office Romance And Nathan isn’t Delilah’s boss! Nathan and Delilah are both contract attorneys and office mates. Office romance is a favorite trope of mine anyway but this one is done so well – […]

Review ~ Fixed on You ~ Laurelin Paige

Review ~ Fixed on You ~ Laurelin Paige

I think I’m glad I didn’t read Fixed on You when it first released because I remember the hype surrounding it and I think it would have ruined Hudson and Laynie’s story for me. Having distance from all that, I enjoyed meeting them and having their story revealed without the hype influencing me. Laynie and Hudson are interesting characters. While I can’t relate to their issues, I can relate to them as two people trying to heal and be better people than they’ve been in the past…two people trying to evolve and move on. Laynie is winning at making herself better. She’s been in therapy and has a shiny, new MBA with plans on how she’ll use it. Hudson, on […]
