Review: The Rogue’s Proposal – Jennifer Haymore

Review: The Rogue’s Proposal – Jennifer Haymore

The Rogue’s Proposal is a very hot, sensual and mysterious tale! I have no idea why I’ve let this stay hidden on my kindle for so long! Luke and Em were quite different from the characters I usually follow in a historical romance, and that made The Rogue’s Proposal a unique read. Em, a young widow, was willing to do whatever it took to find the man who had murdered her husband and run away with her family’s fortune. Luke was after the same man, but for different reasons, and […]

Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts #52 – Sweep in Peace

Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts #52 Welcome to Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts, an original weekly meme hosted here at (un)Conventional Bookviews.

Review: Fighting Dirty – Lori Foster

Review: Fighting Dirty – Lori Foster

Fighting Dirty is as close to perfection as a story can be! Armie and Rissy *sighs* Fighting Dirty is among my most anticipated books for 2016, and Lori Foster outdid herself! I have been longing for Armie and Merissa’s story ever since I met them in the first Ultimate book. The tension between the two of them kept increasing and in their own book, it was palpable. I loved getting to now both of them better, especially how they reacted when they were under pressure. Merissa is a very strong […]

Waiting on Wednesday #82 – The Glittering Court

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine. This meme is a place to showcase a book we’re really looking forward to with bated breath! A new release in our favorite series, an exciting new title from a favorite author…  Waiting on Wednesday #82 Being a big fan of Richelle Mead, I have to admit I was bouncing with excitement when I heard she’s starting a new series, and that the first book, The Glittering Court is scheduled for release on April 16th […]

Review: Morning Star – Pierce Brown

Review: Morning Star – Pierce Brown

Morning Star. It blew my mind. My brain is scrambled. My heart is broken. My breath is taken. Morning Star is dark, following several different characters, even if a lot of the narration is from Darrow’s perspective. There is treason, suspected treason, politics, war, torture… and there is still a sense of hope in places, where the characters are ready to continue the war if that means the future will be better for those who come after them. However, there are also characters who are ready to continue the war […]

Review: Better When He’s Bad – Jay Crownover

Review: Better When He’s Bad – Jay Crownover

Better When He’s Bad is dark and gritty, and while Bax and Dovie grew up in similar situations, one has managed to hold on to hope and loyalty, while the other thinks a life of crime is the only way to go. There were many things I really enjoyed in Better When He’s Bad, and both of the main characters were among those things. Dovie was so much stronger than she looked, she had been through a lot, but she held on to her inner goodness, and was not shy […]

Review: Touch & Go – Mira Lyn Kelly

Review: Touch & Go – Mira Lyn Kelly

Touch & Go is extremely hot, and I loved how Sam and Ava had been friends since they were kids, both of them hanging on to their friendship when their hormones told them there could be much more for them in store. Touch & Go is one of the best friends to lovers romances I have ever had the pleasure of reading! Sam and Ava had chemistry galore, but they were both hiding behind their long friendship, until that just wasn’t possible anymore. When Sam agreed to be Ava’s ‘date’ […]

Review: Once and Again – Elisabeth Barrett

Review: Once and Again – Elisabeth Barrett

Second-chance romances are the absolute best! And Once and Again was both nostalgic, sweet, hot and well done! Once and Again is filled with nostalgia, but there is also an underlying tension that isn’t all positive, especially in the beginning. Carolyn had a pretty easy childhood, her parents were well off, and if she visited the golf club, it was as a guest. One summer, she fell for one of the caddie’s and they had a short, but hot relationship – until her father caught them and sent the young […]
