Review: Take Me Home for Christmas (Whiskey Creek #5) – Brenda Novak

Review: Take Me Home for Christmas (Whiskey Creek #5) – Brenda Novak

*I received a free ARC of Take Me Home for Christmas from Harlequin MIRA via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review.* Take Me Home for Christmas is yet another nicely done story in the Whiskey Creek series. Approaching Christmas, everything that can go wrong in Sophia’s life does indeed go wrong. On a yacht with her husband, Skip, and their daughter Lexi, off the coast of Rio to celebrate their 13th wedding anniversary, Skip disappears in thin air. As soon as the boat arrives in Rio, Sophia has to talk to the local police, and she soon learns that there is an arrest warrant out for Skip. The FBI shows up in Whiskey Creek around the same time Skip’s […]

Review: Getting Rowdy (Love Undercover #3) – Lori Foster

Review: Getting Rowdy (Love Undercover #3) – Lori Foster

*I received a free ARC of Getting Rowdy from Harlequin via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review.* Getting Rowdy is a sinfully delicious romantic mystery/suspense that I devoured in one day! Avery is a really good female character and Rowdy is smoking hot, kind of a womanizer but so protective of the people he cares about it’s impossible not to love him. At the beginning, I really didn’t think there was going to be much of a future for Avery and Rowdy, because they are so different. For Rowdy, a good night means trying to bed Avery, and when she refuses, he finds a replacement – for one night only. For Avery, a good night means having enough work, […]

Review: Crash Into You (Pushing the Limits #3) – Katie McGarry

Review: Crash Into You (Pushing the Limits #3) – Katie McGarry

*I received a free ARC of Crash Into You from Harlequin Teen via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review.* If you thought Isaiah was the best bad-boy out there in Pushing the Limits, you’ll adore him in Crash Into You! Of course, bad boy is relative, it has to do with the way people see him more than anything else! Rachel doesn’t really care all that much about appearances, though, especially because it seems like that is the only thing that matters for her family. And her four brothers aren’t really any better than her parents when it comes to that. This might become a very gushing review, because I was so excited when I got an e-mail telling […]

Review: Targeted (Deadly Ops #1) – Katie Reus

Review: Targeted (Deadly Ops #1) – Katie Reus

*I received a free ARC of Targeted from Penguin Group Berkley via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* Targeted is an extremely fast-paced romantic thriller, with awesome characters, an exciting plot and some very hot and steamy scenes as well. Sophie and Jack has a lot of things working against them, especially that little detail from Jack’s past, the one where his name wasn’t Jack, and he was Sophie’s first boyfriend. And the only boy she’d ever loved. When Jack is sent to Miami to find out more about a medical company that seems to be involved with drug and arms trafficking, he doesn’t want to go at first, because he feels that seeing Sophie again is the biggest […]

Review: The Next Best Thing – Kristan Higgins

Review: The Next Best Thing – Kristan Higgins

*I received a free ARC of The Next Best Thing from Harlequin HQN via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* The Next Best Thing is the story about Lucy, the young widow and Ethan, her brother-in-law. Yeah, that right there is a little weird to me, but not so much that I couldn’t overlook it. Ethan is a very decent character, and Lucy has been a widow for a long time. Also, she got to know Ethan before she met Jimmy. There were some other things I had trouble with, though, so I didn’t enjoy The Next Best Thing as much as I thought I would when I read the blurb and requested the ARC. In some ways, it […]

Review: Friends to Lovers (Aisle Bound #3) – Christi Barth

Review: Friends to Lovers (Aisle Bound #3) – Christi Barth

*I received a free eARC of Friends to Lovers from Carina Press via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* Friends to Lovers is the kind of love story I love to read, two people are best friends, hang out with each other all the time, get along, have the same interests and then… there is more feelings than they thought they had for each other. Gib and Daphne have been friends for several years, and for all that time, Daphne has hidden her true feelings for Gib, because he’s truly not the kind of guy who’d ever have a real relationship with a woman. He’s more the love them and leave them kind of man, and that’s OK since […]

Blogtour, Giveaway and Review: In Harmony (Fenbrook Academy #2) – Helena Newbury

Blogtour, Giveaway and Review: In Harmony (Fenbrook Academy #2) – Helena Newbury

*I received a free eARC of In Harmony from IFB Blogtours in exchange of an honest review* In Harmony is a pretty amazing story in several of its aspects. I loved that it focused so much on music, I could almost hear it when Karen and Connor played, and it’s something I’d buy if it existed for real. I really enjoyed Karen, she started out feeling awkward and different from her friends, and she really only had her cello on her mind – which is understandable in some ways. However, when she starts to open up to the world around her, she makes some pretty amazing discoveries. Although In Harmony is the second book in the Fenbrook Academy series, I […]

Review: Wild Child – Molly O’Keefe

Review: Wild Child – Molly O’Keefe

*I received a free ARC of Wild Child from Bantam via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* Wild Child surprised me, because I thought I would only get a quick, light and superficial chick-lit based on the blurb, what I got was a complex story with characters who had to fight their demons in order to move forward in their lives. Jackson and Monica seem to be complete opposites, she is a former reality TV star and he is the mayor of a small town. Monica has been jet-setting, writing tell-all books and appears to be a woman who will never settle. Jackson has raised his younger sister for the past seven years, after their parents died in an […]

Blogtour and Review: Undercover Lover – Jamie K. Schmidt

Blogtour and Review: Undercover Lover – Jamie K. Schmidt

*I received a free ARC of Undercover Lover from IFB Blogtours in exchange of an honest review* Undercover Lover is a nice mix of romance, police-thriller, alternative medicine and Russian mafia. It is filled with humor, a strong and smart heroine, a hot hero and lots of intrigues. I especially loved that Pam is a doctor, she has several diplomas and could have been a famous shrink, but instead she is practicing reiki to help her patients. The way Pam set up her office and centered herself to be ready to share the universe’s energy with her patients is well done, I could almost feel myself relaxing just reading about it. Drake is an undercover cop who does his job […]

Review: Elite (Eagle Elite #1) – Rachel Van Dyken

Review: Elite (Eagle Elite #1) – Rachel Van Dyken

*I received a free ARC of Elite from Forever (Grand Central Publishing) via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* Elite is one of those books that seemed to have all of the ingredients necessary to make sure I wouldn’t like it. It is actually the first time I’ve given one stars to a book since I started my blog, so I’ll try to be specific in my dislikes – because we all know that what I don’t like may very well be exactly what you’re looking for! At the beginning of Elite, Trace is moving from Wyoming to Chicago to start a new school, her grandma passed away not long ago, and Trace entered some kind of lottery to […]
