Review: Enticing Interlude – Michelle Mankin

Review: Enticing Interlude – Michelle Mankin

Enticing Interlude was definitely enticing, and if not for the way Bridget reacted when a stranger (to her) told her lies about Justin, I’d have given this 5 stars – but that just frustrated me too much! Enticing Interlude is Justin’s story, as he takes over as lead vocalist in Tempest after War leaves the band behind in a fit. At first, it’s hard for Justin to find his place, especially because Bryan is weary of him and the connection he has to Lace. When Lace’s friend from rehab, Bridget, arrives with her young son, however, Justin is completely taken with both of them. And he finally understands that having one-night-stands with groupies will never make him happy. Bridget has […]

Review: Sweep in Peace – Ilona Andrews

Review: Sweep in Peace – Ilona Andrews

Andrews did it again! Sweep in Peace took me on a wild ride, and I stayed up until almost 3:30 am to finish reading about Dina and Gertrude Hunt. Sweep in Peace is just as well done and filled with adventure as the first Innkeeper Chronicles was! There is so much going on, and Dina will do everything she can to save her inn, Gertrude Hunt. When an arbitrator shows up to tell her he needs an inn to host some peace talks between three rival species on the planet Nexus, she knows it’s very dangerous, especially when she realizes that all the other Innkeepers told him no. She really needs money, though, and her inn really needs more visitors […]

Review: Dirty English – Ilsa Madden-Mills

Review: Dirty English – Ilsa Madden-Mills

Dirty English is dark and gritty, beautiful and hopeful, and has some very interesting and complex characters. I have to admit I cried, because Elizabeth had truly been through hell, but then, so had Declan – even if that was a different kind of hell. From the beginning of Dirty English, I knew I was going to enjoy this story! The prologue made me cry – Elizabeth’s hell was very personal, and also something that was shared against her will with several people. However, once the first chapter opened, and she was in college, moving in to her new apartment, next to a guy who had old classics in a box by his door, I just knew it was my […]

Review: Too Hot to Handle – Victoria Dahl

Review: Too Hot to Handle – Victoria Dahl

Too Hot to Handle is a complex story of finding oneself, realizing all of one’s potentials and possibly finding love along the way as well. I briefly got to meet Merry in Close Enough to Touch, and I was instantly curious about her. A strong woman, but one who has been put down more often than not, Merry has changed jobs many times, but she is set on making it in Jackson. Both because her best friend Grace lives there now, and because she’s gotten the dream-job in restoring a ghost town just outside of Jackson. Too Hot to Handle shows a lot of the changes Merry goes through, and some of those changes are in part thanks to her […]

Review: Rock Chick Regret – Kristen Ashley

Review: Rock Chick Regret – Kristen Ashley

Sadie broke my heart, but she was very good at putting it back together again with her strength and love, and this made Rock Chick Regret a strong and heartfelt story. My Rock Chick Regret review: I have no idea how Sadie was able to not only survive everything she went through, but actually still feel strong, confident and sure of herself the way she did! Rock Chick Regret brings even more darkness to the main female character than the prior books in the series, and I think it needs a trigger warning, because Sadie was abused, kidnapped and raped – even if that did not happen ‘on screen’ it is discussed quite a lot, as is the injures inflicted […]

Review: Love Resolution – Michelle Mankin

Review: Love Resolution – Michelle Mankin

Love Resolution showed me all the trouble Avery and Marcus went through, and while I really enjoyed their story, some of it was a bit too much. My Love Resolution review: I was so happy when I realized that Love Resolution was going to be a second story featuring Avery and Marcus, as I really fell for both of them in Love Evolution. Of course, there was trouble in paradise, especially because Marcus started being nervous about the tour, the press and how Avery would be able to deal with things. However, instead of sharing his fears with her, he pushed her away, and then became jealous when he saw her dancing with Bryan from their opening band Tempest. Love […]

Review: Close Enough to Touch – Victoria Dahl

Review: Close Enough to Touch – Victoria Dahl

I loved Close Enough to Touch, both because I found the characters to be so compelling, and because the story was very touching! My Close Enough to Touch review: Grace is one of those prickly characters who prefers being angry rather than show anyone that she is vulnerable and maybe a bit fragile. And I fell in love with her from the beginning, because she was a fighter all the way. She fought against having friends, loving other people, Cole, her sexy cowboy neighbor, and just life in general. And while my life has been nothing like hers, I could relate to her, and I just wanted her to find a way to at least be content. Close Enough to […]

Review: Rock Chick Reckoning – Kristen Ashley

Review: Rock Chick Reckoning – Kristen Ashley

Rock Chick Reckoning touched my heart and my soul, and I got to follow several of the characters I’ve come to know and love! My Rock Chick Reckoning review: Rock Chick Reckoning had even more going on than the prior Rock Chick stories, if that’s even possible! A criminal was after each and every one of the rock chicks to get the hot bunch to back off their investigation. Thrown into that was the romance between Mace and Stella, who had dated before, and who still had feelings for each other. I loved that there was so much music involved here, and I would love to hear Stella sing myself. Mace was a little bit more reasonable than his hot […]

Review: Heartbreaker’s Bet – Donna Cummings

Review: Heartbreaker’s Bet – Donna Cummings

Heartbreaker’s Bet is set in the same universe as Back on Track, and it is a light, sweet, humorous and sassy romance! My Heartbreaker’s Bet review: While Heartbreaker’s Bet is short story, Cummings still managed to have enough character development to reel me in, and the humor had me laugh out loud in several places. Both Troy and Bet just wanted something more… something they hadn’t been able to find in their lives before, and while their relationship started out with Bet picking him to help her become a heartbreaker, their chemistry rocked right off the charts from the beginning! Add in a little rivalry between Troy’s bar and another bar, plus some sassy dialogues, and you have the ingredients for […]

Review: Their Fractured Light – Amy Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

Review: Their Fractured Light – Amy Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

Their Fractured Light definitely brings the Starbound story full circle. And it’s a story of true hope, hope for humankind, for love, and for faith. I think I really needed this kind of story right now, too. Where choices are important, and where making the right choice can be the most difficult situation of them all. My Their Fractured Light review: The whole Starbound series has had me completely starstruck! This dystopia set several hundred years in the future, and where some of the characters have had to make some very difficult choices brought many important issues to my mind. In Their Fractured Light, the main characters from the prior books were all present, as were Sofia and Gideon whom […]
