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 […]

Review: The Chase – Elle Kennedy

Review: The Chase – Elle Kennedy

The Chase was so good! My emotions were totally involved from the start, and I have to say that Fitz and Summer were the perfect couple. The introvert with the shining star made me all hot and bothered – plus they made me laugh. Story: We got a little glimpse of Summer and Fitz in Kennedy’s last Off Campus novel, and I was so excited for The Chase. My excitement was completely warranted, too, and right now, all I want to do is squee with happiness. I loved this first foray into the new series, because the characters were so refreshing. I loved how Summer tried to better herself. After struggling with dyslexia her whole life, coming to a new […]

Review: Children of Blood and Bone – Tomi Adeyemi

Review: Children of Blood and Bone – Tomi Adeyemi

Children of Blood and Bone is a complex fantasy novel, in which one people fight their way to win magic back in order to stay alive. There is a corrupt and vicious king, a credulous young prince, a very strong young woman, and a lot of action. Story: Children of Blood and Bone managed to tell a compelling story, build a complex world, and include magic that was quite different from other stories I’ve read. There was a dictatorial king, and he would kill the smallest flutter of magic he could find – to keep his people safe, or so he said. Zélie was learning to fight, to survive, to keep the former magic users – dîviners – safe. And […]

Review: Bad At Love – Karina Halle

Review: Bad At Love – Karina Halle

Welcome to my buddy-read review for Bad At Love that I read with my bloggerwife, Brandee @ BookwormBrandee 🙂 Hi wifey! I’m so happy we buddy read Bad at Love – you know, Karina Halle seems to be our go-to author for these. 😉 Okay, let’s chat! 1) What did you think of Laz’s serial monogamy? I found it very interesting that he dated for periods of time but always had a girl to move to immediately – and that it was easy because he never got close to a girl or let them get close to him. It said a lot about his feelings on relationships even though he felt he was doing a good thing. I thought that […]

Review: The Chateau – Tiffany Reisz

Review: The Chateau – Tiffany Reisz

The Chateau was wickedly delicious and deliciously wicked. I loved this glimpse into Kingsley’s past, how he was already both a giver and a receiver of pain.. Story: Reisz always mesmerizes me with her storytelling, and I was immediately immersed in The Chateau with Kingsley. In this story, I got to know Kingsley better, and I loved seeing him as a young man. How he lived with the aftermath of his relationship with Søren. What he actually did for the hidden branch of the French government. And how he got entangled with a community where women were boss. In the Chateau, Kingsley wasn’t only a government agent, he was also a player. And he played rather well if the girl […]

Chat Review: Dear Bridget, I Want You – Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward

Chat Review: Dear Bridget, I Want You – Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward

Dear Bridget, I Want you is a fun and sexy read – and it was even more so because I buddy-read it with my blogger wife, Brandee @ Bookworm Brandee. Lexxie: Hello dahling 🙂 I loved Dear Bridget!!! And I’m happy you did, too! I’ll put my comments underneath yours 😉 Brandee: I’m so happy we decided to buddy-read this one, wifey. I really enjoyed it. I felt Keeland and Ward did well in fleshing out the characters, creating a compelling story, and combining humor with some serious-ness as well. Lexxie : I loved that we were able to buddy-read this, too – FINALLY, right? They did flesh out the characters, and the humor had me laughing really hard – […]

Review: Lennon Reborn – Scarlett Cole

Review: Lennon Reborn – Scarlett Cole

Lennon Reborn is the perfect ending to the Preload series! Heavy on emotions, this story was simply beautiful! Story: Lennon Reborn packed more than a few punches, and I was so emotionally involved in his story it was hard to put down. The story started with a loud bang, and includes some dark themes and might trigger some readers. If you want to know what kind of trigger, please contact me privately. I think Lennon’s backstory is the one that touched me the most. It’s a wonder he could even function at all with all he had to go through as a young child, and then through several foster homes until he found the Preload guys. Lennon Reborn not only […]

Review: Oceanside – Michelle Mankin

Review: Oceanside – Michelle Mankin

Oceanside brings real problems, real heartache, and real relationships to the surface. Because of the way these subjects were treated, I was totally immersed in the story, as it made the characters very real to me. Story: Oceanside starts with a flashback, which brings Ash and Fanny’s first meeting to the reader’s attention. It was a great first meeting – who else has met someone at the Oscar’s just before they both were to perform? This happened in 2012, but the main action happens in 2015, after Fanny’s life has completely changed. No longer in the spotlight, she wants a more quiet life. A life where she can make her own decisions. Where she can do what she loves. Up […]
