Review: Say You Still Love Me – K.A. Tucker

Review: Say You Still Love Me – K.A. Tucker

Say You Still Love Me is a strong love story, where the past plays a very important role in the present – for all the characters. I’m a huge fan of second chance romances, and in Say You Still Love Me, Kyle and Piper worked on getting theirs. I loved a lot of things about this story, but I found the beginning to be a bit slow, and the ending to be a bit ‘easy’. That said, the story worked well for me, and I found the flashbacks to bring a lot to the present. The characters in Say You Still Love Me were relatable, and I wanted them to work things out. Especially as the flashes from the past […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Lady Luck ~ KC Cross

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Lady Luck ~ KC Cross

Lady Luck upped the suspense a notch or twenty. This series keeps getting better and better. I was excited for Luck’s story and Cross didn’t disappoint. She gave Luck his perfect match in Nyleena and she game just enough clues to have me thinking I might just have some of the answers. Of course, I’m probably wrong. 😉 I loved how the suspense got better, and that while we definitely got answers, we got a lot more questions, too! Ha! I always think I have figured something out, only to realize in the next book that’s not exactly how things were… that’s part of what makes this series so good, though. I thought it was interesting that Nyleena had such a […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Island Side ~ Michelle Mankin

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Island Side ~ Michelle Mankin

Wow! I couldn’t have asked for a better ending for Hollie & Diesel or for this series. Mankin has a way of developing these complex, genuine, and flawed characters that you can’t help but root for. And watching them grow as they struggle to overcome or dig deep to find their inner strength…it’s beautiful. Mankin is also gifted at sharing her love of the ocean, surfing, rock music and the musicians who make it through her lovely prose. Her words paint vivid images of the landscape as well as visceral emotions. I’m sad to see this series end because I’m going to miss these characters! I’m sad it’s over, too – and I think I’ll do a re-read before BookBonanza, […]

Review: The Lemon Sisters – Jill Shalvis

Review: The Lemon Sisters – Jill Shalvis

The Lemon Sisters felt like the perfect behind-the-scenes story of a marriage, but also of the relationship sisters can have. The Lemon Sisters follow two sisters – and they lead very different lives. They were both hiding part of their frustrations with their lives, to not burden each other. Until one day, when Mindy shows up unannounced at Brooke’s house. Feeling overwhelmed and tired, Mindy needs a break. And in a way, Brooke does, too. Therefore, the two sisters swap houses for a few days, and Brooke takes Mindy’s kids back to Wildstone, the place where she hasn’t been back in ages. The Lemon Sisters follows Brooke much more closely than Mindy, but that doesn’t mean I didn’t get to […]

Review: F*ck Marriage – Tarryn Fisher

Review: F*ck Marriage – Tarryn Fisher

F*ck Marriage is a raw, honest tale about Billie and her banked marriage. But it’s also about revenge, love, hope, and friends. Story: F*ck Marriage isn’t only about Billie, though, it is also about Woods and Satcher, who used to be best friends. That is, until Woods cheated on Billie and told her he wanted a divorce. Most of the relationships in F*ck Marriage are rather complicated, once one layer is pealed off, there’s another one ready to be dissected, and that made it a little hard to get to know the characters at times. While I enjoyed Billie, it was also a bit difficult to relate to her. She didn’t know what she wanted. And she didn’t really know […]

Review: New Camelot Trilogy – Sierra Simone

Review: New Camelot Trilogy – Sierra Simone

The New Camelot Trilogy is hot, it’s filled with intrigue, taboo, politics and suspense, and it’s not certain that all the players will still be there in the end… Story: The New Camelot Trilogy is my Can You Read a Series in a Month Challenge – and I totally nailed it. As soon as I started reading, I was drawn in – to the mystery, the steam, the friendships, and the war. The main characters were introduced in a great way, and I felt a connection to them even if they were all very different from me. There is a political intrigue going on, but there’s also something that appears to be slightly supernatural happening. Especially because both Greer and […]

Review: Praying For Rain – BB Easton

Review: Praying For Rain – BB Easton

Praying For Rain was very intense. And it sure doesn’t fit into a neat little genre box, either. I was stuck with my kindle, not even able to go for a bathroom break while reading. Story and Characters: I’m not sure how BB Easton pulled off Praying for Rain, but she sure did! This apocalyptic, New Adult kind of romance, but not blew my mind. So different from her other books, I was awed from start to finish. Rain and Wes had been dealt a pretty shitty hand – Wes since he was born, Rain at least for the past year. And with the apocalypse approaching on fast hooves, not much for them to do to stay alive. In a […]

Review: Delicate Ink – Carrie Ann Ryan

Review: Delicate Ink – Carrie Ann Ryan

Delicate Ink was my first ever Carrie Ann Ryan book, and I will definitely read more by her! Sierra and Austin were both great characters to get to know. And I loved Austin’s huge… family 😉 Story and Characters: Set in Denver, Colorado, Delicate Ink started off pretty strong, and only got stronger as the story went on. I loved Austin, because he had had enough time to reflect on what more he needed in life in order to be happy. Enter Sierra, whom Austin really didn’t plan on liking, and sparks were flying. Because of what happened in her past, Sierra was not very open about herself. She needed to stay off the radar, and she did that fairly […]

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 […]
