Review: Hello Forever – Sarina Bowen

Review: Hello Forever – Sarina Bowen

Hello Forever had everything I enjoy in a romance, a strong relationship between the protagonists – even when they thought they couldn’t be together. Story: After Axel and Cax got caught making out in the woods at youth camp, Cax just disappeared. Axel still thought of him, and at least his mom was there for him in every way she could be. Six years later, when Axel is offered a job, he decides to say ‘yes’ after seeing Cax in the stands of a basket ball game. There is a lot of love and hope in Hello Forever. At the same time, there is a lot of bigotry and hate, too. The characters move the story forward, and it took […]

Review: Atheists Who Kneel And Pray – Tarryn Fisher

Review: Atheists Who Kneel And Pray – Tarryn Fisher

Atheists Who Kneel and Pray is a love story, but it’s also much more than that. Self-discovery sounds like a cliché, and this story was so far from a cliché I can’t really use that to describe it. Atheists Who Kneel and Pray was my first Tarryn Fisher book. And I was pretty much blown away by it. I think what got to me the most is that Yara, the heroine, is not really all that likeable, but she’s very relatable. I wanted to get to know her and her story, even when she did things I didn’t agree with. Or when I didn’t like her at all. That takes some pretty mad writing skills, right? To get you to […]

Review: Rookie Move – Sarina Bowen

Review: Rookie Move – Sarina Bowen

Rookie Move was a sweet and hot contemporary hockey romance! I really enjoyed that Bowen understood the game and everything that can surround a hockey team. Story: Brooklyn Bruisers is a fairly new hockey club, and the club’s PR person, Georgia, has to deal with both her father and her ex coming to work for the club. Her father as the new coach, her ex as a new player. There is a lot of history here, and that made for a sweet second-chance-at-love story. Characters: Both the main characters, Georgia and Leo, and the secondary characters, Becca, Ari, O’Doul, and Castro, just to name a few were well fleshed out, and I got to know them fairly well. Writing style […]

Review: Bossed Sloane Howell

Review: Bossed  Sloane Howell

Bossed was a fun story that still brought the feels. Baseball, snark and romance in plenty. I’m not sure why I haven’t read Sloane Howell before… I guess I was a bit surprised about a male author writing romance, and that sounds incredibly sexist, right? Bossed was really well done, though. And even if I’m not usually a fan of office romances, it definitely hit the right spot! I think it’s partly because Jenny didn’t take what Ethan was dishing. And she was so snarky it was impossible to not fall in love with her. Ethan acted like the big bad wolf at times, but Jenny knew her baseball and called him on it. Every time. Bossed is a quite […]

Review: Burn for Me – Ilona Andrews

Review: Burn for Me – Ilona Andrews

Oh my goodness! Rogan and Nevada are both characters I became slightly obsessed with at the beginning of Burn for Me, and now, I just know that I have to figure out what is up next. Ilona Andrews did it again – a complete winner! There is something special with stories including magic. When those stories are written by Ilona Andrews, there is even more that is special about them! Burn for Me is a prime example of their excellent writing, world building, character development, story arc, plot and general awesomeness. I don’t really know what more to say than that – it was as close to perfection as the written word can possibly be. Rogan and Nevada are very […]

#Review: Built – Jay Crownover

#Review: Built – Jay Crownover

Built was a very emotional story, and my heart broke for Sayer more than once. Zeb was there to pick up the pieces and help her build a new one, though. Built definitely got to me, because Zeb and Sayer – while seemingly so different from each other – were very similar when it came to the truly important things in their lives. Sayer, holding on to control of every aspect of her life tried her best to resist, but Zeb was too persistent. Zeb was also reliable, strong and loyal and so very lovable. The whole Saints of Denver series worked well for me, and Built was one of the reasons why. The overall story, the side characters, the […]

#Review: Leveled – Jay Crownover

#Review: Leveled – Jay Crownover

Leveled has me questioning why I haven’t read a Crownover series before now! I was enchanted, and she now has a new fan! Lando and Dom were both characters that made me feel, and their development through this story was truly well done. I read Leveled as part of my Can You Read a Series in a Month challenge, and I have read all the Saints of Denver series in June. I enjoyed the characters, the story, the secrets, and also the very strong sense of family and friendship. Dom and Lando both thought they weren’t deserving of love and a real relationship. Until there was no way for either of them to resist any longer. Lando lived with a […]

#Review: Where Have All the Scoundrels Gone – Donna Cummings

#Review: Where Have All the Scoundrels Gone – Donna Cummings

Where Have All the Scoundrels Gone was a delightful tale of three cousins, a scheming Dowager aunt, and three young women who thought they had given up on love. Sprinkled with Cummings humor, the characters moved the story forward with romance and wooing. Where Have All the Scoundrels gone was such a fun read, the three cousins all thought they were smarter than their dowager aunt, who had assembled twenty young debutantes for them to woo and marry as soon as possible. They weren’t having it, though, and rather went for three slightly older ladies instead. The seduction was well done, and I felt wooed as well, because these cousins could truly bring it! In true Cummings style, Where Have […]

#ARC #Review: Anarchy Chained – J.A. Huss

#ARC #Review: Anarchy Chained – J.A. Huss

Anarchy Chained is quite the finale to the SuperAlpha series! So much was going on, and the wicked twists and turns were out of this world – literally! Anarchy Chained was such a wicked trip! I am still trying to catch my breath, get my wits about me and make my heartbeat slow back down! Huss is a master at mind-fucks! She really, really is. And with this story, she took it even further than usual in my opinion. At the beginning, I was a bit lost, and I continued to feel like the story was a couple of paces ahead of me for most of the time, and it was truly thrilling to never guess a single thing that […]

Review: Deadly Silence – Rebecca Zanetti

Review: Deadly Silence – Rebecca Zanetti

Deadly Silence was packed with action, danger and romance, and I couldn’t set the book down until I had finished reading! This series is even more fast paced than the Sin Brothers series, and that’s saying something. Deadly Silence is the first in a spin-off of the Sin Brothers series, and I do think it’s important to read that series first to get some of the things that happen this one. Especially when it comes to some of the mystery surrounding the blood brothers. And there is so much action in this story it was at such a break-neck speed it was hard to catch my breath more than once! I enjoyed both the backstory and the present story, both were important […]
