Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Mister McHottie & Stud in the Stacks ~ Pippa Grant

Wifey, thank you SO much for recommending this series. I needed lots of giggles and PGrant and the Girl Band series delivered. I enjoyed this series so, so much, Brandee! I think they kind of saved me in 2021… laughing out loud and following the crazy shenanigans of these characters just made me feel so good.   I have to say that I’m not the biggest fan of hate sex. BUT PGrant made me a fan of Bro & Chase’s version of it! 😉 LOL, Bro and Chase are definitely it… and I thought it was kind of ‘normal’ for them to have hate sex, yeah?   I adore the fact that Bro, or Sia, as she goes by with […]

ARC Review: Running Wild – K.A. Tucker

ARC Review: Running Wild – K.A. Tucker

Running Wild is Marie’s story, she is a character we met in the prior Wild stories, and she was not my favorite character in those… I wasn’t sure I’d enjoy Marie’s story, because, as I sad, I didn’t really like her in the prior books in this series. Partly, that’s because she was kind of an interloper in Calla and Jonah’s story. As Jonah’s best friend – who also had a crush on him. This is something Marie deals with in her own novel. While she is happy for Calla and Jonah, she also wants that kind of relationship for herself. The family relationships in Running Wild are a bit complicated. Marie is the oldest of three sisters, and she […]

Review ~ Seeking Vengeance ~ Eden Summers

Review ~ Seeking Vengeance ~ Eden Summers

Seeking Vengeance was a steamy, emotional thrill-ride! I was immediately drawn into the story. And to say I’ll be impatiently awaiting the next installment might just be the understatement of 2021 so far. (as it relates to my reading anyway ;)) Layla wants to be enough. As the daughter of a crime lord, she feels tainted by her family’s business. Then there’s the guilt she feels over a family betrayal that shouldn’t be held against her, yet is. And she’s paid the unthinkable price. Her family despises her and she’s seeking vengeance as well as redemption. Matthew is rather an enigma. He holds his cards close to his chest – except for his feelings for Layla. His life experiences have shown him […]

Blogtour Review : For the Love of April French – Penny Aimes

Blogtour Review : For the Love of April French – Penny Aimes

For the Love of April French is a tender, sweet romance between April and Dennis, where they both have some past demons to overcome. As soon as I read the synopsis for this novel, I knew I had to read For the Love of April French! A romance with a trans woman as the main character appealed to me, and the fact that the author is also a trans woman is what completely sold me. I loved getting to know April, and to understand how she thought through so many things before acting. In many ways, she was so very self possessed, and in others, she was insecure and a little afraid. I think that is par for the course […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ The Next Mrs Russo ~ Jana Aston

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ The Next Mrs Russo ~ Jana Aston

Hooray! JAston is BACK! And with The Next Mrs Russo she’s better than ever! 🙂 Oh my gosh – it was all I could have ever wished for and more! I immediately fell for Audrey. Her quirky personality and her hysterical internal dialog was so much fun and it allowed us to really get to know her. I adored that she up-cycled vintage clothing (I didn’t know that was a thing) and that her plumbing was essentially held together with duct tape. Audrey made me realize how much I’d missed JAston’s characters. What about you? Audrey was fantastic – I loved her stream-of-consciousness talking and thinking. I had never heard of up-cycling vintage clothing either, but that was so cool […]

ARC Review : Jett – Sawyer Bennett

ARC Review : Jett – Sawyer Bennett

As always, Sawyer Bennett’s hockey stars and the person they fall in love with grabbed me from the first word! Jett is fine, and I loved how persistent he was with Emory when she appeared to not be interested. Jett is a very tender romance in many places, especially because Emory is a single mother. In fact, she turns out being everything Jett thought he would never want, which just made their story even better in my opinion. Emory was very gun-shy, with good reason, and the readers and Jett learned of those reasons little by little. Each time I thought Jett would turn around and run, he surprised both me and Emory by being understanding, caring, and even loving <3 […]

Review ~ Homecoming Heartbreaker ~ Joss Wood

Review ~ Homecoming Heartbreaker ~ Joss Wood

I quite enjoyed my initial visit to Moonlight Ridge with Homecoming Heartbreaker. I love the setup for the entire series and look forward to seeing how these brothers, and their dad, end up ensnared by just the right woman. 😉 Homecoming Heartbreaker focuses on Mack, the oldest Holloway brother, and Molly Haskell, the girl he left behind. With Mack’s dad being ill, he’s back to run the business (a luxury resort) for a while. He’s determined to clear the air with Molly so they can move on, leave the past in the past, and work together amicably (she stayed on a Moonlight Ridge and is an integral part of the business.) However, Mack’s willpower to stay away from Molly is […]

Audio Review ~ A Secret for a Secret ~ Helena Hunting

Audio Review ~ A Secret for a Secret ~ Helena Hunting

A Secret for a Secret finishes off the All In trilogy and it was a more than satisfactory ending. The fact that the narrators, Stella Bloom and Jason Clarke, were able to keep the story perfectly paced while breathing life into these characters only enhanced the experience. Ryan “King” Kingston is a character I’ve been eager to get to know better if only because I knew there was more to him than met the eye. 😉 King’s a good guy. Always there for his friends, a rule-following, milk-drinking, adorable guy. He’s taken some hard hits lately, though, and not on the ice. So the one night he decides to loosen up and have a little fun would naturally be life-changing. […]

ARC Review: The Mama Diaries – Belle Brooks

ARC Review: The Mama Diaries – Belle Brooks

The Mama Diaries is the book all mothers need in their life. Belle Brooks has a fantastic sense of humor, and in The Mama Diaries, she truly shone that humor on all the hard times mamas can have in the day-to-day life of raising their beloved children. Tantrums, puke, poop, love, hugs and more – it’s all part of being a mama, and it was beautifully (and very funnily) depicted in this novel. I loved that the four women, Tracey, Mia, Anna and Haddie, met and hit it off from the get-go. They all needed some friends, and The Mama Diaries showed that women can be so much stronger together. Building each other up, having each other’s backs, and simply […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Dream Spinner ~ Kristen Ashley

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Dream Spinner ~ Kristen Ashley

Dream Spinner was a highly anticipated installment in the Dream Team series for me. Let’s start at the surface level before we delve deep into Hattie & Axl, shall we? Yes, let’s do that! I have to admit that I’ve been looking forward to Hattie and Axl’s story from the beginning – or at least since we met them. There seemed something a little deeper about these two and I was keen to explore it. KA had hinted at Hattie’s history so it wasn’t a surprise. Finding out she had indeed suffered abuse – both emotional and physical – at the hands of her father was sickening. Add to that her previous relationships…bad news. That she continued to expose herself […]
