Review: This Heart of Mine – Brenda Novak

Review: This Heart of Mine – Brenda Novak

This Heart of Mine took me completely by surprise! A beautiful second chance at love story, set in one of my favorite fictional towns is just filled with good stuff even when there are bad things happening, too. My This Heart of Mine review: When I started This Heart of Mine, I was prepared not only to not enjoy the story, but to not enjoy the heroine either. And I’m so happy I was wrong! Phoenix hasn’t only had a tough childhood, her adult life hasn’t exactly been a piece […]

Review: Riding Steele – Opal Carew

Review: Riding Steele – Opal Carew

Riding Steele is a fast and hard ride, with gritty but loveable characters, a despicable ex-boyfriend and the open road ahead. My Riding Steele review: Both Laurie and Steele are interesting characters to follow, and Riding Steele had a very hard edge to it. Both because Laurie was trying to get away from her abusive boyfriend, Donovan, and because one of Steele’s rider buddies saved her, only to kidnap her in order to keep her safe. Needless to say, Laurie thinks she’s gone from one bad situation to a worse […]

Review: What a Lady Requires – Ashlyn MacNamara

Review: What a Lady Requires – Ashlyn MacNamara

What a Lady Requires is a great ending to the Eton Boys Trilogy, and I especially enjoyed Emma with her knowledge for numbers, even if she was not so good at mingling in society. My What a Lady Requires review: While I thought What a Lady Requires is a good ending to the Eton Boys Trilogy, it didn’t sweep me off my feet like it could have. The pacing was very slow, and while I enjoyed both Emma and Rowan, they were a little more reserved than the characters in […]

Review: Clutch – J.A. Huss

Review: Clutch – J.A. Huss

Junco is brilliant! And Clutch is so well done! Aliens, clones, war, fights, doubts, lies, amazing characters, it’s all there! My Clutch review: Clutch is really all I could wish for in a sci-fi novel. The world is slowly shown to me, Junco is a great character, even if both she and I were quite confused at the beginning of the story. Tiers intrigued me form the beginning, and I really enjoyed the fact that he truly let Junco have choices – it’s not like that really happened very often […]
