Review: The Art of Sinning – Sabrina Jeffries

Review: The Art of Sinning – Sabrina Jeffries

The Art of Sinning is a delicious tale of forbidden love and attraction, made very tense because of the time it is set in, and I loved every look, pun and touch! My The Art of Sinning review: One of the things I love about historical romance novels is that the attraction between the hero and the heroine often has to be hidden, because women in those times weren’t supposed to actually be attracted to anyone. The tension between Jeremy and Yvette was strong from the start, and their verbal sparring made me almost squee with delight! The Art of Sinning unfolds like a flower in spring sunshine, a little hesitantly at first, then suddenly there is a full bloom […]

Review: The Drafter – Kim Harrison

Review: The Drafter – Kim Harrison

The Drafter is a fast-paced story, in a world I would never want to live in! Peri is a very strong character, but so many people are trying to take advantage of her, leaving her with less memories of who she is, and what she’s been doing. My The Drafter review: The Drafter shows how hard life is for Peri, and how much she has to trust her anchor to bring back the right pieces of her memory after a draft. The way she is able to shift time to change some details, and leave everyone apart from Jack none the wiser. When an assignment goes slightly wrong, she has lost memories of the pas six months, and she is […]

Review: The Canterbury Sisters – Kim Wright

Review: The Canterbury Sisters – Kim Wright

The Canterbury Sisters is a tale of eight women, walking the Canterbury trail from London to the Cathedral in Canterbury, following in Chaucer’s steps, each sharing their stories, searching for redemption and a reason to keep on. My The Canterbury Sisters review: The Canterbury Sisters isn’t the first book about pilgrimage I have absolutely loved. I think that taking the time to go on a specific walk, think about our life, our choices, how to continue moving forward is something very special. And I would really like to do my own pilgrimage one day. Just to be away from the stress of daily life, away from electronics, one with myself and my thoughts and beliefs. It is something that definitely […]

Review: Monday’s Lie – Jamie Mason

Review: Monday’s Lie – Jamie Mason

Monday’s Lie is a finely woven psychological thriller, where all the action happens through Dee’s eyes, the chilling, the doubting, the spying… My Monday’s Lie review: What was the most enjoyable to me in Monday’s Lie wasn’t the suspense, the waiting, the spying or Dee’s brilliant deductive mind, it was the writing! It’s so vivid, using different metaphors, daring to go a little outside the conventional boundaries of a psychological thriller to simply show the readers the changes in Dee’s life, through her own eyes. From the very start, I was captivated by Dee’s inner musing and recollections of various encounters, dialogues and places. Riveted to the screen of my kindle by the mystery unfolding, even when Dee didn’t want […]

Review: How the Scoundrel Seduces – Sabrina Jeffries

Review: How the Scoundrel Seduces – Sabrina Jeffries

*I received a free ARC of How the Scoundrel Seduces from Gallery, Threshold, Pocket Books via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* How the Scoundrel Seduces might just be my favorite Dukes Men story yet! Tristan is as wonderfully rakish and devilishly honest as I remember, and Zoe is one of the most pesky heroines I have ever encountered. My How the Scoundrel Seduces review: Sabrina Jeffries certainly continues to enchant me, because How the Scoundrel Seduces enchanted me, both the storyline, the plot and the characters drew me in from the first sentence, and I stayed glued to my kindle for all these pages, always wanting to know what would happen next. As usual, the language is really […]

Review: Dark Skye – Kresley Cole

Review: Dark Skye – Kresley Cole

*I received a free ARC of Dark Skye from Gallery Books via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* WOW Dark Skye is an awesome installment in the Immortals After Dark series! And can I just say character growth? My Dark Skye review: Thronos and Leanthe have such a complicated relationship it’s a wonder they actually even talked to each other at all. Dark Skye seemingly threw them together at a very inopportune time, but of course, soothsayer Nyx had something to do with that, and she showed up more than once to my utter enchantment. Thronos having searched for Leanthe for centuries made me really feel for him, even if he also acted like an ass for a long […]

Review: Searching for Perfect – Jennifer Probst

Review: Searching for Perfect – Jennifer Probst

*I received a free ARC of Searching for Perfect from Gallery Books via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* My Searching for Perfect Review: Searching for Perfect is about Kennedy, who is trying her best to stay professional, even if that means she cannot even flirt a little bit with the sexy rocket scientist Nathaniel. Fate, however, seems to have decided otherwise, and Nate is ready to everything he can to make Ken’s perfect and cold-ish façade crack so that she might fall for him too. Second in the Searching For series, Searching for Perfect is a quick, fun and sexy read, it’s got a straight-forward plot, with likable characters and just enough intrigue to make it difficult for […]

Review: Finding Colin Firth – Mia March

Review: Finding Colin Firth – Mia March

*I received a free ARC of Finding Colin Firth from Gallery / Threshold / Pocket Books via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* Finding Colin Firth is a surprising contemporary novel following three women whose lives become connected in a small town in Maine. A beautiful depiction about all the choices women have to make in their lives, and the social pressure for them to always do ‘the right thing’. And I really appreciated reading a contemporary romance that takes feminism and gender roles seriously, but just as a part of the story, not in a preaching or debating  way. Bea finds out that she was adopted a year after her mother died, she receives a letter in her […]

Review: Searching for Someday (Searching For #1) – Jennifer Probst

Review: Searching for Someday (Searching For #1) – Jennifer Probst

*I received a free ARC of Searching for Someday from Gallery Books via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* Searching for Someday is a very sweet romance, where Kate tries her best to just be a good friend, a good manager and leave dating to other people. After her disastrous date – number 100 – she thinks that dating is not for her, she should just use her skills to help other people towards happiness instead. A little bit quirky at times, Searching for Someday is a satisfying read, and I got to love both Kate and Slade, as well as Kennedy and Arilyn. I know for sure that this is a series I will continue to read – […]

Beautiful Bastard (Beautiful Bastard #1) – Christina Lauren

Beautiful Bastard (Beautiful Bastard #1) – Christina Lauren

*I received a free ARC of Beautiful Bastard from Gallery Books via Edelweiss in exchange of an honest review* Beautiful Bastard starts out with angry sex in the very first chapter. Chloe is talking to herself quite a lot in her own head, which some might find endearing, but I found that pretty annoying. For the first two thirds of the story, I thought both Chloe and Bennett were pretty much one-dimensional. The only thing we get to know about them is that they love to tell each other off – just before having rough sex in inappropriate places.
