ARC Review ~ Maame ~ Jessica George

ARC Review ~ Maame ~ Jessica George

I can’t believe Maame is a debut novel nor that I waited so long to read it. Maddie’s story is told with charm and wit, warmth and compassion. It was enlightening to walk in someone else’s shoes as they go through daily life enduring the high expectations of family, the weight of responsibility for family, as well as racism, and sexism. My heart broke for Maddie at times, but I was also able to laugh along with her. JGeorge is an author to watch! Maddie Wright, a Londoner by way of Ghana, has spent a large portion of her life caring for others. Being the responsible one in her family. The very definition of the name Maame, in her parents’s […]

★★★★★ Review: Magic Tides – Ilona Andrews

★★★★★ Review: Magic Tides – Ilona Andrews

Magic Tides has a big change in scenery from other Kate Daniels novels, and it’s fun to see Kate trying to fit in… Magic Tides starts with Kate having a meeting with someone from Conlan’s school. And Kate is not necessarily a happy camper. It’s clear from the beginning that fitting in might not be in the cards for our little family. Then again, did anyone actually believe that was going to happen? I loved how the action started straight away in Magic Tides. And this time, Conlan was kind of the instigator, and Curran needed to have a stern conversation with him about that. The novel was filled with action, new and old characters, the strong bonds between Kate […]

★★★★★ Review: Fighting the Pull – Kristen Ashley

★★★★★ Review: Fighting the Pull – Kristen Ashley

You know that comfort you feel when you hang out with good friends? People who fully understand you, and always have your back? That’s how I usually feel when I read a Kristen Ashley novel. And that’s how I felt while reading Fighting the Pull. I have been waiting for Hale’s book for a while (and now, I’m totally waiting for Sasha’s book!), and it was definitely worth the wait (pun intended!). Fighting the Pull was definitely what I wanted for Hale’s story, and that’s also because Elsa is a fantastic character. And of course, all the characters I’ve come to know and love from prior books in the series were present here and there throughout the story. Fighting the […]

★★★★★ Review: I’m Your Guy – Sarina Bowen

★★★★★ Review: I’m Your Guy – Sarina Bowen

I’m Your Guy is the perfect autumn romance, there’s hockey, there’s a whole lot of anguish, and there’s definitely romance galore! I fell in love with both Tommaso and Carter as soon as I met them at the very beginning of I’m Your Guy. Tommaso because he was that grouchy, serious-looking hot hockey guy who just needed a little TLC. And Carter because even if his life had just been turned upside down, he was totally faking it till he was making it. And because their first look was sizzling. Of course, Tommaso was so far into the closet that even he wasn’t 100% sure he liked guys. Apart from the fact that he felt some fierce feelings for Carter. […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Dumb F*ck ~ T. Torrest

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Dumb F*ck ~ T. Torrest

Good golly but Dumb F*ck was all kinds of fun! With 90’s references, Scooby-Doo vibes, and equal parts silly and HOT, Dumb F*ck delivered everything I expect from T. Torrest. Well, everything except the serious. T. Torrest dubbed this an eroticomedy and I like that description. Dumb F*ck is the perfect way to kick off your summer reading! I laughed my head off so many times! It did take me a while to read, but that’s mostly because I was not motivated to read at all for a while. So busy with work, exams, year-end reports and everything else. Eroticomedy is the perfect word for Dumb F*ck, though. Sage was an interesting bird. She was super smart (valedictorian) and something […]

Buddy Read Chat Review ~ Famine ~ Laura Thalassa

Buddy Read Chat Review ~ Famine ~ Laura Thalassa

Once again, I had the pleasure of buddy reading with my friend, Nadene. We’re working our way through the The Four Horseman series, by Laura Thalassa. This time we read Famine and it was a 4.5 Star read for us both. You can read this review and others on Nadene’s blog, Totally Addicted to Reading. Enjoy!   Famine wasn’t what I was expected even if I didn’t know what I was expecting. I appreciate the way LThalassa has given each of the Horsemen such distinct personalities depending on their powers and the things they’ve experienced in their human forms. Because of something Famine endured, he’s very angry with and unforgiving of humans. And it’s his anger and brutal tendencies that […]

Buddy Read Chat Review ~ War ~ Laura Thalassa

Buddy Read Chat Review ~ War ~ Laura Thalassa

I’m so thrilled to have had the chance to buddy read with my friend, Nadene, again. We’re continuing the Four Horsemen series, this time reading book #2, War. You can read this review and others are Totally Addicted to Reading.   Okay, before I even cracked open my kindle to start War, I know it had BIG shoes to fill. We both loved Pestilence and were more than eager to continue the series but I was nervous. What if I didn’t like it as well? It turns out I needn’t have worried. 😉 What about you? Any pre-reading jitters? Yes! I had pre-reading jitters. I figured War would be hardcore and I expected the scenes to violent. The thing foremost […]

Review ~ Well Matched ~ Jen DeLuca

Review ~ Well Matched ~ Jen DeLuca

Well Matched was my favorite of the Well Met series so far. I could identify with April and her introvertedness and I felt like Mitch was the most fleshed out of the heroes thus far. This might be due to the fact that we’ve spent time with him and April in the two previous books but no matter – this book took the favorite spot regardless. What Worked Characters April is someone I connected with because of her introverted personality as well as her being a mom. And she was a little closer to my age as well. 😉 I also got her “plans” and preoccupation with what came after her daughter went off to college. It was fascinating to […]

Review ~ Rattlesnake Road ~ Amanda McKinney

Review ~ Rattlesnake Road ~ Amanda McKinney

Oh how I lament the fact I’ve allowed Rattlesnake Road to languish on my virtual shelf for so long. 🙁 I was hooked from the first page and struggled to put it down to focus on anything else. And when I finished, I quickly went to check out AMcKinney’s backlist. Yep. I was that impressed. Rattlesnake Road was emotional, riveting, and, at times, creepy. It all combined for excellent reading. Grey Dalton thought she’d lost everything. And then she hit rock bottom and really lost it all. Of course, change was inevitable but not necessarily bad. That change included a move to Berry Springs, where she not only uncovers a mystery hidden in her newly purchased cabin, but also meets […]
