Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ The Right Wish ~ Michelle Mankin @MichelleMankin

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ The Right Wish ~ Michelle Mankin  @MichelleMankin

The second installment in this series, The Right Wish was even more emotional and impactful than its predecessor. Witnessing all Camaro is and how much she gives to others, it was more than a little moving to see Brad work at convincing her she was worthy of love…his love. *swoon* I agree! Cam was such a heartfelt heroine. And she truly did believe her late mother’s words about giving joy to others was the greatest joy of all. She was so good with everyone she came in contact with.   Man, I can’t imagine having to live life as Cam had. Lying about who she was, living in shelters, selling her body… it was no wonder her self-esteem was in […]

Review: Wild at Heart – K.A. Tucker

Review: Wild at Heart – K.A. Tucker

Wild at Heart is one of those sequels when you are amazed from start to finish – because it’s even better than the first book, and your heart is full. The character development in Wild at Heart is astounding. Both Calla and Jonah grow so much, and while I already loved them before, the way they grew made me love them even more! Moving is never easy, and they both ended up moving to make their own home in a new place. In some ways, I felt that the move was easier on Jonah, because he was still a pilot. Calla had no idea what she wanted to do, and so she did what she could to make sure Jonah […]

Review ~ Passions of a Papillon ~ Tara Lain #NR2020 @taralain

Review ~ Passions of a Papillon ~ Tara Lain #NR2020 @taralain

I adored Passions of a Papillon ! It has great characters, character growth, romance, suspense, AND it made me want a dog! A papillon specifically. 😉 I was immediately drawn into the story in large part because of a little ball of fluff. When Finn finds her – or maybe it was the other way around? – I knew Batshit was going to win over this non-dog-lover. Once Finn and Batshit meet Emerson, the vet, I knew this trio was fated. However, they had a few obstacles to negotiate before they could have their HEA. Highlights: Characters TLain proved yet again her talent at creating characters that are engaging and fully realized. Finn is a defense attorney and works hard at defending […]

Buddy Read Chat Review w/Berls ~ Mine to Take ~ Cynthia Eden #COYER

Buddy Read Chat Review w/Berls ~ Mine to Take ~ Cynthia Eden #COYER

We both were hooked at the prologue. It was the last few sentences that did it for me. Having finished, I’m still curious about who the speaker was. What hooked you? And if it was the same thing, are you still curious as well? Ditto! It hooked me and quite literally gave me chills. Even now, rereading it, I get chills because, yeah, I don’t know who it is!!! And I want to know why she clearly didn’t remember that moment (if she had, there would be no mystery… Or a different one) and will she in a future book? Do you think CEden left it deliberately unresolved?  I hadn’t thought about her leaving it unresolved on purpose. That’s totally […]

Review ~ Soaring ~ Kristen Ashley

Review ~ Soaring ~ Kristen Ashley

Kristen Ashley never disappoints me and Soaring was no different. This story had it all…engaging characters (even the kids!), character growth, realistic family issues…and I loved it all. Highlights: Seasoned Characters I have to admit to loving the fact that KA writes seasoned characters. Both Amelia and Mickey are closing in on 50 and I like experiencing life with and through characters that have lived as much life as I have. Second Chance Romance If you haven’t yet figured out that I’m a sucker for this trope, you will. Yep, I’m a sucker for it. I adore that Amelia and Mickey have lived the lives they’ve lived, lost at love, but are growing, changing, and getting a second chance at […]

Can You Read a Series in a Month? Challenge Reviews ~ Pucked Series ~ Helena Hunting

Can You Read a Series in a Month? Challenge Reviews ~ Pucked Series ~ Helena Hunting

Woohoo! This time I did indeed read a series in a month! And I’m patting myself on the back considering I had TWO trips to the Pacific Northwest during the month of November. Of course, 6 hour round-trip flights and time to read while waiting on kids to get out of class helped. 😉 The Pucked Series was so much fun and if you haven’t read it yet, I highly recommend it! *Note* I only read the 6 main novels of the series. I still have novellas to read. 😀 Here are the reviews that haven’t already been posted. Pucked Up features Buck/Miller and Sunny, who is Alex’s younger sister. There was a lot of angst in Miller and Sunny’s […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ The One Night Stand Before Christmas ~ Jana Aston

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ The One Night Stand Before Christmas ~ Jana Aston

In The One Night Stand Before Christmas, a case of mistaken identity leads to a night of possibility…and the need for a Christmas miracle. I adored the way JAston tied up this trilogy of novellas. They were all heartwarming stories with various amounts of humor which have me welcoming the holiday season. 🙂 It was so good! And I loved how Teddy didn’t really lie about anything. And the humor had me chuckling so many time – just what I needed, truly! The One Night Stand Before Christmas is Noel’s story and I’d been eager for it because, of the three Winter sisters, she seemed the most cynical. Which was ironic considering her love of Christmas. We didn’t really get […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review: Pucked Over – Helena Hunting

Blogger Wife Chat Review: Pucked Over – Helena Hunting

Pucked Over is such a good play on words, but can we just start with all the hockey players’ names? I mean, I’m always waiting to see what it is, because it makes me laugh so hard. Randy Ballistic? It’s awesome, don’t you think? Oh the titles, the names, the characters…this series has been so much fun all around! But yeah, Randy “Balls” Ballistic is the greatest name. And it fits him so well. 😉   Pucked Over was just as humorous and hot as the other Pucked books, and I really loved getting to know Lily better. What did you think of her? And the fact that she was also a sportswoman? I loved getting to know Lily. She […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Rock F*ck Club #5 ~ Michelle Mankin

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Rock F*ck Club #5 ~ Michelle Mankin

Holy WOW! I don’t even know where to start with Rock F*ck Club #5. I was so very eager for Gale’s story and I’m ecstatic I got it. Before this one, I would have said #3 was my fav. But now I’m all about Gale and Jo!! I agree – Gale and Jo were my favorites! And I just loved how dark Jo’s past was, but she still managed to move forward and try to find something she could be happy doing. While also honoring her past. Let’s start with Jo. MMankin kept her mysterious. We knew and/or learned enough about her to understand she was fiercely loyal to those she loves. We also knew she was a fighter, a […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ If You Give a Jerk a Gingerbread ~ Jana Aston

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ If You Give a Jerk a Gingerbread ~ Jana Aston

If You Give a Jerk a Gingerbread was even more satisfying than its predecessor. Of course, it could have been the British accent. Or the sexy banter. Or all the baking! Yeah, it was definitely the British accent. 😉 All of the above 🙂 I loved the British accent. And I also adored the sexy banter. Plus, the baking was just as hot as the steamy scenes. I don’t know what it was but I found Ginger’s story even more entertaining. Maybe because we’d met her before? Or maybe it’s because she’s adorable…like a kitten. I was thoroughly entranced her her and her inner monologue, her daydreams where she’d get lost in the haze, her real dreams of owning her […]
