#ARC #Review: The Takeover Effect – Nisha Sharma

The Takeover Effect was an excellent story on absolutely every level! A boardroom thriller / romance, it kept me riveted from start to finish. Add in a very strong and intelligent female lawyer, and a strong-minded, honest oldest son in charge of his own company coming back to save the family, and you have a recipe for greatness! Story: The Takeover Effect included some very strong, charismatic and career-oriented characters who made me swoon! I loved the excitement of the underlying threat of a hostile takeover, and I also loved how the Singh family came together to save their father’s company, pride and hard work. The characters were all well fleshed out, and they had very distinct personalities – this […]

Review: Chasing Christmas Eve – Jill Shalvis

Review: Chasing Christmas Eve – Jill Shalvis

Chasing Christmas Eve was a nice story, back with the gang in Heartbreaker Bay. Colbie and Spence were fun, even if they both thought they sucked at love! Story: Chasing Christmas Eve includes a main character who’s an author, and  I love those kinds of stories. Possibly because I love reading. And getting a peek into how an author might feel when the pressure is high just makes me feel very strongly for all of them. Shalvis managed to bring all her characters to life, and I really had a good time with them all. Colbie and Spence’s first meeting was humorous, because Spence had gone out to have a break from work. And he did so by walking one […]

Review: Holding Out for a Hero – Codi Gary

Review: Holding Out for a Hero – Codi Gary

Holding Out for a Hero is a sweet story, but a little cheesy for my taste at times. I enjoyed Hannah and Blake, however, I felt like the book could have been slightly shorter and still told the full story. Story: Ex navy-SEAL and cute waitress dance around each other without much interactions outside of the café where Hannah works. Until one day when there’s a hold-up at the café. And Hannah plays the hero. Bringing a lot of memories back to Blake – memories he didn’t really want to resurface. Holding Out for a Hero includes dogs and good friends, too. Blake works at a training center where they train dogs, but they also help  keep troubled youth out […]

Review: One Snowy Night – Jill Shalvis

Review: One Snowy Night – Jill Shalvis

One Snowy Night is a short novella in the Heartbreaker Bay series, featuring Rory and Max, and there is hotness, romance, cold, ice and doubts from a past event coming to the surface. While I enjoyed One Snowy Night, I was sad it was so short, as I think Rory and Max could hold up a full length novel with their story. And because it was short, only the span of a night and morning, and it was spent on the road, I missed all their friends! One of the things I love the most in a Shalvis story is the amazing friendships and funny banter. It was clear in the prior Heartbreaker Bay novels that Max and Rory had […]

Review: The Bride Wore Denim – Lizbeth Selvig

Review: The Bride Wore Denim – Lizbeth Selvig

The story in The Bride Wore Denim was very sweet and at times heart-breaking. I enjoyed the characters and the story overall, however, there were both typos and grammatical errors, and sometimes some continuity problems as well, which took my attention away from the story trying to figure out exactly what was going on. My The Bride Wore Denim review: Harper was a whimsical character I thought I’d love more than I did… it took her a long time to grow up and actually do something constructive instead of complaining about the ideas her mother, her sisters and Cole came up with to save the ranch after her father’s sudden death. And while the story involved a trope I absolutely […]
