Review: Be the Girl – K.A. Tucker

Review: Be the Girl – K.A. Tucker

I knew Be the Girl would break my heart! Bullying is such an ugly word. And now – with all kinds of social media, those who are bullied must feel like it never stops. Be the Girl is such an important story! And I have to say, Tucker managed to tell it with so much tenderness and tact, it was beautiful  – even when it was ugly! Aria moved across Canada with her mother to live with her great-uncle. And it was clear from the beginning of the story that there was trouble in her past. Big trouble. Coupled with a father who had a second family – and who left Aria and her mother behind without a backwards glance. […]

Release Day Review: Finding Alexei – Kendall Ryan

Release Day Review: Finding Alexei – Kendall Ryan

Finding Alexei reads as a modern-day fairytale, with a little bit of Pretty Woman mixed in. It’s a sweet romance, and I enjoyed getting to know Alexei and Ryleigh. Ryleigh works hard, and she works long hours – and now, she has to take care of her former room mate’s baby. Life is not good for her, and one night, leaving her work, Alexei defends her against one of the customers. The romance is rather slow burning, and I love that – especially because Alexei just wants to help. Of course, he is very rich, so it’s no difficulty for him to share his home and a little of his money with Ryleigh and the baby. However, I did find […]

Blogger Wife Chat Double Review ~ Lawless & Soulless ~ T.M. Frazier

Blogger Wife Chat Double Review ~ Lawless & Soulless ~ T.M. Frazier

I don’t know why by Lawless & Soulless seemed to resonate with me even more than King & Tyrant. They were gripping, gritty, and fantastic! I think, though, it might be that Frazier’s writing gets tighter with each book. 🙂 I know this is a double review, wifey, but I want to let you know in advance that my questions are not in order. They come from my thoughts upon finishing both books. I agree, with each book I’ve read from Frazier, the writing is tighter, the character development somehow more, and the overall story and plot just even better 🙂 We are so lucky to have gotten our hands on her books, right?   The way that Bear and […]

Review ~ Raze ~ Tillie Cole

Review ~ Raze ~ Tillie Cole

  Raze served as my introduction to Tillie Cole. I have a contemporary romance by her I’m going to have to read so I can compare it to this dark romance, but I’m fairly certain this was her first foray into the dark side. Although I liked the premise, I found the execution to be a little bumpy. Kisa is Bratva, the daughter of one of the rulers of the Russian mafia in New York. Years ago she lost the man (boy at the time) who was her soulmate – so destined to be hers that a part of her eye color smudged his iris. Since then, she’s been given to another Bratva guy and she’s set to marry him. […]

Review ~ Blood Avenged ~ Gabrielle Bisset

Review ~ Blood Avenged ~ Gabrielle Bisset

  I’m a mood reader and I was in the mood for some PNR. Since the box set of books 1-3 in the Sons of Navarus series had been on my ereader for quite some time so I decided to give Blood Avenged a try. While I had some issues with the story, I thought this introductory installment wasn’t too bad and I’ll continue the series. Blood Avenged had a lot of potential. There seemed to be a mythology behind these vampires with their ability, or lack thereof, to sire more vampires and the ruling body that apparently keeps the vampires in line. There was also the blood feud between two vampires in this installment as well as Sasa, her unique abilities […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Tyrant ~ T.M. Frazier

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Tyrant ~ T.M. Frazier

After finishing Tyrant, again I’m left saying HOLY WOW! There was so much going on here – the action, the revelations…I was RIVETED! I told you so! Bwahahaha! I think you should just get the WHOLE series and binge-read it, like I did 😉  The way Frazier conveyed Doe’s memories as they came back was well done. I felt for the girl she’d been and it made sense she’d “clicked” so easily into the family she chose with King. How did the memories affect you given her circumstances? Oh my gosh! When she slowly remembered things, I died a little. I felt so bad for her – and even for those memories that were good, my heart broke. Doe was […]

Double Review ~ Dissolution & Infraction ~ K.I. Lynn

Double Review ~ Dissolution & Infraction ~ K.I. Lynn

Dissolution was a quick read but well worth the time. This little glimpse inside Nathan’s head – seeing how he felt after what he did to Lila – was enlightening. Understanding dawned over why he felt the need to act the way he did – especially considering how strong his feelings are – but I agreed with what Andrew and Caroline did. It was cowardly no matter the good intentions behind his actions. However, seeing Nathan’s pain and how he reacted at the end, I’m eager to see if he can redeem himself in Lila’s eyes…and mine. Onto Infraction.     Although Infraction didn’t pack quite the punch of Breach, I enjoyed having the front row seat as Nathan and […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Wild Like the Wind ~ Kristen Ashley

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Wild Like the Wind ~ Kristen Ashley

I’d always wanted Keely and Hound’s story and Wild Like the Wind was so well worth the wait! I agree! They both intrigued me – and Keely was always a little bit on the sidelines – present, but not really. And I was so curious about her. Hound seemed very mysterious, too – and he slayed me!   I’d always wanted the story of Black, the fallen Chaos brother who is tattooed on ALL the brothers, and his wife, Keely. I also wanted to story behind Hound’s dedication to Keely. What did you think of all KA shared about them? Oh. My. Gosh! I fell in love with them from the prologue! Because they were both so completely loyal. So […]

New Release Review ~ Soulfire ~ Juliette Cross

New Release Review ~ Soulfire ~ Juliette Cross

The Vampire Blood series kicked off my fangirling for JCross’ writing. That series was unique and refreshing and Soulfire – equally unique and refreshing – served to intensify my affection for JCross’ story telling talent. I didn’t write this review right away because I just didn’t have the time but I have to admit that this story and my feelings about it have only improved up reflection. Soulfire has action, romance, suspense, and a message all wrapped up in a Romeo and Juliet-style love story…only with a better ending. 😉 Highlights: Premise and Execution of Plot A myth about the creation of the Morgons – a hybrid dragon/human species – is how the story begins. I appreciated how JCross used this to […]
