Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ The Right Wrong ~ Michelle Mankin

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ The Right Wrong ~ Michelle Mankin

Wow. The Right Wrong certainly toyed with my emotions. Both Ben and Sierra had a lot to overcome in order for their romance to blossom. But it did bloom and it did so rather quickly for my tastes but this is a fairytale. 😉 I didn’t really see the parallel to Sleeping Beauty here… even metaphorically 😀 But yeah, there were definitely feels here. I had to do some thinking on it but I eventually got the parallel…   Ben’s childhood was far from idyllic. I can’t imagine being told – your whole life – that you’d ruined a parent’s life. That you were the reason they were unhappy. It was no wonder Ben drank himself to oblivion and/or buried […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Dirty Empire ~ Nina West

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Dirty Empire ~ Nina West

Sigh. Wifey, I thought we were going to get the conclusion to Mercy and Gabriel’s story with Dirty Empire. Alas, there’s one more book to come. Good thing, NWest put enough goodness and suspense in Dirty Empire to keep me satisfied while I wait. 😉 Oh my gosh! This was such an intense book! So much was going on. And I agree, I thought this would be the conclusion as well. And now, we have to wait until September :O   After the ending of the last book, I figured Mercy would be freaked. And rightfully so. She’s had some difficult things to consider when it comes to her feelings for Gabriel and where she wants this relationship to go. […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Storm ~ Michelle Mankin

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Storm ~ Michelle Mankin

Well, wifey, I feel MMankin has outdone herself with Storm. She delivered everything I’ve come to expect from her and more! My fingers are crossed for books for Saber, Shield, and Cork. 😉 Oh my gosh, I so agree! It was so, so good. I loved every single word, lyric, look, and touch. It was really well written, and the characters were out of this world.   I admired how MMankin built the story of Lotus and Storm being childhood friends. They both experienced traumatic things in their young lives and were anchors for each other. Eventually, though, Storm had to leave. His leaving was realistically portrayed and I appreciated even more how MMankin brought Lotus and Storm back together. […]

Review: Forever Wild – K.A. Tucker

Review: Forever Wild – K.A. Tucker

Forever Wild brought me back to Alaska, to Calla and Jonah and their merry bunch of family and neighbors. Forever Wild is the perfect Christmas novella in my opinion. Calla and Jonah had family visiting for Christmas. Jonah’s mom and stepdad were there from Norway, and Calla’s mom and stepdad came from Toronto to celebrate with them. Forever Wild has a lot of humor, but it also has complicated family relationships, the still beautiful romance, and all the intricacies of neighbors who have become a new family of sorts. I loved how Calla and Jonah’s relationship has evolved since The Simple Wild, especially because in this story, they trust each other fully. They also know they can count on each […]

OctobeRec Fest Review #2 ~ Torn from You ~ Nashoda Rose

OctobeRec Fest Review #2 ~ Torn from You ~ Nashoda Rose

OctobeRec Fest review #2 – woot! Thanks to Naomi from Nomi’s Reading Palace for the recommendation! And the perfect beer pairing? Shipyard Pumpkinhead! Are you seeing a theme? I do love me some pumpkin beer. This one mixes a hazy IPA with the pumpkin and it’s a lighter finish. Again, if you like pumpkin AND beer, give this one a try. Oh, and give Nashoda Rose’s Tear Asunder series a go, too! Torn from You was a gripping and emotional read. And it was a satisfying wrap-up to Emily and Logan’s (aka Sculpt) story. It had been awhile since I’d read With You, the prequel to Torn from You, so I re-read it before diving in. I’m happy I did […]

Review ~ Next in Line ~ Amy Daws #unearthingabookishbounty

Review ~ Next in Line ~ Amy Daws #unearthingabookishbounty

I think I loved Next in Line even more than Wait With Me! There were plenty of laughs, of course, but there was something about Maggie that resonated with me. Witnessing the romance between her and Sam blossom was moving as well as humorous and HOT! Maggie is in Boulder on a mission. She wants to be more adventurous…to find her inner-explorer. This mission was spurred by her boyfriend calling her basic and breaking up with her. On Christmas Day. Anyway, she finds herself at a bait shop because nothing says adventurous like…ice fishing. 😉 Luckily, she happens upon a handsome guy who not only defends her honor but also agrees to serve as her guide. Sam is nothing if […]

Review ~ The Time in Between ~ Kristen Ashley

Review ~ The Time in Between ~ Kristen Ashley

I think I’ve established that I’m a sucker for second chance romance and The Time in Between is the ultimate in second chances at romance. It was a beautiful story with beautiful characters set in a beautiful locale. And it was pure Kristen Ashley. I’ve loved all the books in the Magdalene series but this one is my very favorite. Coert and Cady were once very much in love and committed to the long haul. Circumstances tore them apart and kept them apart for almost 20 years. They’re both very stubborn and Cady arriving in Coert’s hometown has him digging his heels in not wanting to listen to Cady. But Cady is determined. And those feelings from so long ago? […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Gabriel Fallen ~ Nina West

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Gabriel Fallen ~ Nina West

Gabriel Fallen had me equally as riveted as its predecessor, especially since the romance between Mercy and Gabriel is really heating up. 😉 The romance is definitely heating up – and so are the feelings they’re both starting to have for each other.    Mercy is having a bit of trouble reconciling the two sides of Gabriel and her intense attraction to him. And then there’s her inability to understand why he’s do determined to have, and maybe keep?, her. I like the fact that Mercy is vulnerable and unsure of herself while also throwing smack back at Gabriel’s arrogant, smirking face. I felt NWest gave us an even deeper view of Mercy and who she is. Did your feelings […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Sweet Mercy ~ Nina West

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Sweet Mercy ~ Nina West

Wowza! There is just something about NWest’s writing that immediately draws me in! Sweet Mercy had me flipping through the pages, completely absorbed in Mercy & Gabriel’s story to the very end. I felt for and admired Mercy. She’d experienced and endured so much but she didn’t let it beat her. She’s spirited and feisty and those qualities are good to have when life seems to continually hand you lemons. And then there’s her loyalty. When her dad went to prison she changed her life plans in order to help him. She’d do anything for her dad…which lands her in her current situation. 😉 What did you think about Mercy? I loved Mercy from the start! There was a certain […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Rock F*ck Club #6 ~ Michelle Mankin

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Rock F*ck Club #6 ~ Michelle Mankin

What a wonderful way to wrap-up this unique series. Rock F*ck Club is all about empowering women with the ability to embrace their sexuality without fear of judgement. Each woman in the series went about their journey in different ways but all managed to find real love despite trials and tribulations along the way. This final story once again follows Josephine and Gale (my favorite couple in the series!) as they navigate past and present obstacles on their way to a future together. Jo and Gale are my favorite couple in the series, too, and I loved to see more of them here. I think this ending truly made sense, and I’m so happy Mankin went there.   I have […]
