Review ~ The Fractured Heart ~ Scarlett Cole

Review ~ The Fractured Heart ~ Scarlett Cole

The Fractured Heart marked my long-awaited return to the Second Circle Tattoos series. Thankfully SCole was appearing at RARE Paris which gave me the push I needed to finish this amazing series. Highlights: Characters The Fractured Heart revolved around Cujo – co-owner of Second Circle Tattoos – and Drea. These two! I couldn’t wait for their story and to get to know them better. Their verbal sparring is so much fun and makes it seem as though they’re oil and water. However, they’re more like gas & match – and watching them work towards combustion was awesome. Getting better acquainted with them, seeing all they’ve been through and continue to endure, was heartbreaking. It also explained a lot about them. Their […]

ARC Review: Code Name Genesis – Sawyer Bennett

ARC Review: Code Name Genesis – Sawyer Bennett

Bennett did it again! I loved Code Name Genesis – it has everything I love in a romantic suspense story! Code Name Genesis really did it for me – it ticket all the boxes and left me breathless. Both because of the extremely hot chemistry between the characters and because of the suspense! Alpha man, check! Second chance at love, check! A crazy stalker ready to whisk away the heroine, check! A fantastic secondary cast, check! Joslyn and Kynan knew each other when they were much longer, and they had a beautiful love story. Until it all fell apart, and Joslyn left without a backward glance. When she needs help with a stalker, Kynan wants nothing to do with her […]

Review: Delicate Ink – Carrie Ann Ryan

Review: Delicate Ink – Carrie Ann Ryan

Delicate Ink was my first ever Carrie Ann Ryan book, and I will definitely read more by her! Sierra and Austin were both great characters to get to know. And I loved Austin’s huge… family 😉 Story and Characters: Set in Denver, Colorado, Delicate Ink started off pretty strong, and only got stronger as the story went on. I loved Austin, because he had had enough time to reflect on what more he needed in life in order to be happy. Enter Sierra, whom Austin really didn’t plan on liking, and sparks were flying. Because of what happened in her past, Sierra was not very open about herself. She needed to stay off the radar, and she did that fairly […]

Audio Review ~ Beauty Like the Night ~ Joanna Bourne

Audio Review ~ Beauty Like the Night ~ Joanna Bourne

Beauty Like the Night was just what I was needing. This is my second listen in Bourne’s Spymasters series – which I’ve read out of order – and the story as well as the narration were both fabulous! One of my favorite things in historical romance is an unconventional heroine. Severine is the epitome of unconventional. An orphan of the French Revolution, she was adopted by the head of British intelligence. If I remember correctly, she’d spied during the revolution – at a single-digit age – and continued honing those skills no matter her Papa’s objections. Severine is smart, independent, strong-willed, outspoken, and tenacious. All things I greatly admire. 🙂 With no war being fought, Severine currently works as a […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review : In to Her – J.A. Huss

Blogger Wife Chat Review : In to Her – J.A. Huss

I, for one, thought In to Her was really well done! I felt like my mind was twisted and turned in so many directions I could hardly even believe anything would be OK for the characters! I felt the same way, Lex. These characters and their stories had my mind going in circles (or triangles? 😉 ) and I was worried. Huss really has a way with words. And broken characters. And stories that take so many unexpected turns it’s a mind-bend just to try to keep track! What did you think, Brandee? I was really impressed with this one. AJ, Yvette, and Logan were all broken in some way (or many ways) and despite the circumstances of their coming […]

Bloggerwife Chat Review: The Square – J.A. Huss and Johnathan McClain

Bloggerwife Chat Review: The Square – J.A. Huss and Johnathan McClain

The Square kind of blew me away! I can’t wait to chat with Brandee about it – because there was just so much that happened and I have no idea what can even happen next. What a ride The Square was, right, Brandee? I have no idea how Huss and McClain manage to keep the suspense like they do – and how they are able to keep me guessing through the twists and turns. Did you guess anything during this story? I know I didn’t! It really was quite the ride, Lex! The Square wasn’t as action-packed as The Triangle and yet the suspense kept me glued to my kindle and had me biting my nails. Oh the twists and […]

Review: Free – Kristen Ashley

Review: Free – Kristen Ashley

Oh my goodness! I just love me some Chaos, and I have to say that Rush and Rebel’s story got to me in every way. These alpha MC men, with their wild, intelligent, and fun women always get to me – but I just adored Free! Free is the last installment in the Chaos series, and it was sad to see some of my favorite characters ever for the last time. It was also a great story, though, so I was completely satisfied when I came to the end. Rush and Rebel were made for each other! She was a strong woman, and she was able to hold her own – both with Rush and with other men. Rush is […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ The Triangle ~ J.A. Huss & Johnathan McClain

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ The Triangle ~ J.A. Huss & Johnathan McClain

It seems as thought Huss has pulled McClain over to the “dark side” as it were. 😉 This collaboration is more of what I’d come to expect from Huss but with that little more “oomph” from McClain. I loved it. It’s dark, twisty, sexy, action-packed, and leaves you (or at least me) thinking, “Wow. Um, what?!?” It made me think. A lot. Think not only about what was going on – and I’m not certain I ever figured it all out – but also about whether or not we ever really know someone…and do we really know ourselves? I CANNOT WAIT FOR BOOK TWO!! There was so much going on – between the mystery, the suspense, the criminal activity, the […]

Review: The Ocean Between Us – Michelle Heard

Review: The Ocean Between Us – Michelle Heard

The Ocean Between Us dealt with quite a few very dark themes, and some of the things that happened made me cry with both sadness and anger. However, there was so much sweet to counteract the bad! Story: The Ocean Between us started with showing me that Emma had the childhood from hell! With a mother who abused her, both verbally and physically, she felt trapped. In a life she didn’t want. In a house where she wasn’t welcome. And in her mind, where she had started to believe everything her mom told her she was or wasn’t. Until one day she packed her bags and left South Africa for the US. Aiden was one of those characters that seemed […]

Review: Face Off – Brenda Novak

Review: Face Off – Brenda Novak

Face Off was a good story, but I have to admit I’m starting to think Evelyn will never ever find any peace. And it took quite a bit of suspension of disbelief to get that she could go through so much and still be sane. I really enjoy Evelyn and her thoughts on what makes a psychopath a dangerous person. However, in Face Off, I just started to feel a bit tired because Evelyn can never catch a break! She never had a moment of peace, between her one-time boyfriend from her youth, and Amarok’s ex who was trying to get to Amarok any way she could. The overall story in Face Off was very exciting, especially because I as […]
