Review: F*ck Marriage – Tarryn Fisher

Review: F*ck Marriage – Tarryn Fisher

F*ck Marriage is a raw, honest tale about Billie and her banked marriage. But it’s also about revenge, love, hope, and friends. Story: F*ck Marriage isn’t only about Billie, though, it is also about Woods and Satcher, who used to be best friends. That is, until Woods cheated on Billie and told her he wanted a divorce. Most of the relationships in F*ck Marriage are rather complicated, once one layer is pealed off, there’s another one ready to be dissected, and that made it a little hard to get to know the characters at times. While I enjoyed Billie, it was also a bit difficult to relate to her. She didn’t know what she wanted. And she didn’t really know […]

Review: New Camelot Trilogy – Sierra Simone

Review: New Camelot Trilogy – Sierra Simone

The New Camelot Trilogy is hot, it’s filled with intrigue, taboo, politics and suspense, and it’s not certain that all the players will still be there in the end… Story: The New Camelot Trilogy is my Can You Read a Series in a Month Challenge – and I totally nailed it. As soon as I started reading, I was drawn in – to the mystery, the steam, the friendships, and the war. The main characters were introduced in a great way, and I felt a connection to them even if they were all very different from me. There is a political intrigue going on, but there’s also something that appears to be slightly supernatural happening. Especially because both Greer and […]

Review ~ Merciless ~ Willow Winters

Review ~ Merciless ~ Willow Winters

Merciless is one of quite a few books I’ve, um, collected, from Willow Winters. 😉 I decided to dive in since she was attending RARE Paris. Although I had some difficulty getting into the story (thanks to a Devney Perry book hangover) I did like my introduction to WWinters and am looking forward to continuing Carter and Aria’s story. Merciless is a dark romance with elements of D/s and BDSM as well as revolving around the mafia. When one mafia family decides to attempt a takeover of another, Aria gets caught in the middle. She’s kidnapped and given to the head of a third crime family…Carter Cross. Carter has his reasons for wanting to “save” and keep Aria. And Aria’s […]

Review: Praying For Rain – BB Easton

Review: Praying For Rain – BB Easton

Praying For Rain was very intense. And it sure doesn’t fit into a neat little genre box, either. I was stuck with my kindle, not even able to go for a bathroom break while reading. Story and Characters: I’m not sure how BB Easton pulled off Praying for Rain, but she sure did! This apocalyptic, New Adult kind of romance, but not blew my mind. So different from her other books, I was awed from start to finish. Rain and Wes had been dealt a pretty shitty hand – Wes since he was born, Rain at least for the past year. And with the apocalypse approaching on fast hooves, not much for them to do to stay alive. In a […]

Review: Delicate Ink – Carrie Ann Ryan

Review: Delicate Ink – Carrie Ann Ryan

Delicate Ink was my first ever Carrie Ann Ryan book, and I will definitely read more by her! Sierra and Austin were both great characters to get to know. And I loved Austin’s huge… family 😉 Story and Characters: Set in Denver, Colorado, Delicate Ink started off pretty strong, and only got stronger as the story went on. I loved Austin, because he had had enough time to reflect on what more he needed in life in order to be happy. Enter Sierra, whom Austin really didn’t plan on liking, and sparks were flying. Because of what happened in her past, Sierra was not very open about herself. She needed to stay off the radar, and she did that fairly […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Tattered ~ Devney Perry

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Tattered ~ Devney Perry

Tattered was a book I chose for Lex and I to read because Devney Perry was attending RAREParis. It’s a book I’m not sure I can adequately do justice to in a review so I’m thankful we’re chatting about it. 😉 I agree! So nice to discover this amazing author – and I’m so happy we co-read, too!   You know I’m a sucker for second chance romances, wifey and the second chance Thea and Logan get is a whopper! 😉 I loved everything about the initial meeting between them to have those set of rules ended up not working for them. For several reasons. But timing wasn’t on their side. Until Logan walks into Thea’s bar in Montana! How […]

Review ~ Forever Right Now ~ Emma Scott #RAREParis

Review ~ Forever Right Now ~ Emma Scott #RAREParis

Forever Right Now was an emotionally gripping story that took on several challenging topics. And EScott handled it all with aplomb. This was my first read from EScott and it certainly won’t be that last as I was impressed with her story writing! Darlene has come to San Francisco for a fresh start. Having hit rock bottom – and serving time for it – she is desperate for that proverbial clean slate. She wants to prove to herself, and her family and friends, that she’s got it together now. She needs to focus on herself but she can’t seem to help being drawn to her new neighbor and his little girl. And honestly, showing kindness is something that fills her […]

Review: The Risk – Elle Kennedy

Review: The Risk – Elle Kennedy

The Risk was delicious! Reluctant romance is just so sweet – because the buildup makes everything so good. I loved Brenna and Jake – they just kind of clicked. Even if Brenna didn’t want to click with him. At all. I can’t even begin to say how happy I was when I learned that The Risk was going to be Brenna’s and Jake’s story! Especially because they were going to ‘enemy’ schools when it came to ice hockey. With Jake being Harvard’s star player, and Brenna coach Jensen of Briar’s daughter, I just knew there would be some secrecy and slight drama. And it was so delicious! Brenna had this dream of being a sports commentator, and had applied for […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review : In to Her – J.A. Huss

Blogger Wife Chat Review : In to Her – J.A. Huss

I, for one, thought In to Her was really well done! I felt like my mind was twisted and turned in so many directions I could hardly even believe anything would be OK for the characters! I felt the same way, Lex. These characters and their stories had my mind going in circles (or triangles? 😉 ) and I was worried. Huss really has a way with words. And broken characters. And stories that take so many unexpected turns it’s a mind-bend just to try to keep track! What did you think, Brandee? I was really impressed with this one. AJ, Yvette, and Logan were all broken in some way (or many ways) and despite the circumstances of their coming […]

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Stanton Completely ~ T.L. Swan #RAREParis

Blogger Wife Chat Review ~ Stanton Completely ~ T.L. Swan #RAREParis

Wow! What a way to wrap up Natasha and Josh’s story! Stanton Completely made me so happy because I got the emotional growth from them both and the suspense element had me biting my nails. I have to admit to wanting more from these characters. I agree, Brandee. We finally got some growth. And it almost came too late! Yes, it was quite an ending. I loved them!   You remember how I mentioned Natasha’s being a psychologist benefited her in this relationship? I appreciated how she was able to put some pieces together to get a more complete puzzle where Josh was concerned. She even accepted her part in causing the issue. Woohoo for some emotional growth! How did […]
