My Romance Sub-genre Recs for You – Romantic Suspense

My Romance Sub-genre Recs for You – Romantic Suspense

Romance Sub-Genre Rec – Romantic Suspense Hey, and welcome to my new post series – where I recommend various romance sub-genres to you. The idea came to me the first weekend in February, while I was chatting with Evelina @ Avalinah’s Books. She asked me to recommend romance books to her. But she wanted romance with no actual sex, and not too heavy on the romance. Easy, right? Actually, it was. I read a whole lot of romance, and I love what the different sub-genres can bring us. Today, I’m sharing some of my favorite romantic suspense books, series and authors. I love romantic suspense, because there is an element of danger along with the romance. And therefore, when the […]

Safe and Sexy #32 – Rough Ride

Safe and Sexy #32 – Rough Ride

Safe and Sexy Thinking of my romances and safe sex at the same time started when I wrote my discussion post with the same name a long time ago! Not too long after, the idea of sharing quotes about that ensured that the feature Safe and Sexy was born. It’s where I will share a quote from a story I have read, and where there is a lot of hotness and sexiness, but where they still take the time to be safe! It’s important to me to read books that make me dream, but I also want them to be somewhat realistic. And to me, characters seem realistic when they take care of themselves and their partner(s)! Safe sex is a […]

Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts #147 – Chasing Christmas Eve

Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts #147 – Chasing Christmas Eve

Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts #147 Welcome to Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts, an original weekly meme hosted here at (un)Conventional Bookviews. So many of the books I read have food or drinks in them, some I’d love to try, and others I’d never ever want to taste… and I thought it could be interesting and fun to share some food and / or drink quotes…  If you want to participate, you can grab my logo if you’d like, or you can make your own, but please link back to me in your own post. The idea of Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts is to share a quote with food or drinks that showed up in a recent read, as well […]

Review: Undone By You – Kate Meader

Review: Undone By You – Kate Meader

Undone By You shows a different side of the Chicago Rebels, and none of the sisters is the main character here. That role was Cade and Dante’s. And wow, did they play it well! Story: I loved how we got a hockey player tentatively starting something with the Chicago Rebels’ new GM. Their romance was very realistic, especially in light of Cade wanting to stay in the closet – at least for a while longer. Undone By You shows how two quite different men can feel completely unravelled by each other – whiles till playing their cards very close to the vest. Characters: Dante is comfortable in his own skin, openly gay, ever since he stopped playing hockey and started […]

Review: The Lucky Ones – Tiffany Reisz

Review: The Lucky Ones – Tiffany Reisz

The Lucky Ones gave me goosebumps. Both the good kind and the even better kind… Reisz’ writing keeps getting better and better, and this incredibly well-written, character-driven story left me with all the feels. Story: The Lucky Ones starts with a low for Allison, as McQueen leaves her after several years of having her as his secret lover. However, on the same day, she also receives a letter. From someone she used to call her brother. Thirteen years ago. In that letter, she learns that her almost-adoptive father is fatally ill. And she decides to go back to the dragon – the house where she was happy for the first time after her mother’s death. There is so much that […]

Audioreview: Keystone – Dannika Dark

Audioreview: Keystone – Dannika Dark

Keystone was even better in audio version than it was when I read it myself – I was so immersed in the story I was happy with the morning traffic. Story: Keystone is set in the Mageri universe, and since I’m already familiar with how the different breeds and the politics work, it was great to go back for a visit. Raven is a lost soul in many ways. First of all, she’s a mix of vampire and mage. Also, her vampire maker abandoned her as soon as she was made. This, of course, has made her resentful, and she has no love for vampires in her heart. Because she is all alone, and not registered with breed, she lives […]
