Review: Reed – Sawyer Bennett

Review: Reed – Sawyer Bennett

Reed was possibly the best of the Cold Fury Hockey stories… I just loved his and Josie’s relationship, how they were friends first, and then wanted more. Story: The blurb of Reed does not bring the story justice. Reed is such a sensible character, and while he’s been playing the field with his ‘barbies’ until now, he is not a total womanizer. Once he meets his new neighbour, Josie, he realises that his life might not be as full as he thought up until now. I have such a love for friends to lovers stories, and that’s exactly what I got with Reed. At first the two characters were a bit tentative, but little by little they became close friends. […]

Review: The Schemer – Avery Flynn

Review: The Schemer – Avery Flynn

The Schemer was a fun, hot read, where the main characters did everything they could not to fall in love with each other. Story: Both Tyler and Everly made me swoon! The Schemer – Tyler, thought he had everything he had ever dreamed of. Until Everly moved into the apartment above his. Stomping her high heals at all hours of the day and night, and generally pissing him off. Everly knew from the first time they met that Tyler was not the guy for her. Embarrassed of his humble upbringing, he didn’t even speak in his Waterbury accent anymore. And she was a proud Riverside woman. Never one to let her past bring her down! The Schemer happens just after […]

Books My School Library Should Have

Books My School Library Should Have

Books That My School Library Should Have! Many of you know that when I don’t blog, or spend time with my family, I teach English as foreign language. I teach in high school, so my students are between 15 and 19 years old. (Yeah, high school is four years here in Switzerland). Our school library has an English section… of sorts. It’s really not very good. And some of the books that appear in the English section are in French. Because books are shelved based on the author’s nationality – which include only UK or US. Which again, makes me kind of wonder who decided how to sort the different sections. I know it’s not our current librarian. Last week, […]

Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts #144 – The Charmer

Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts #144 – The Charmer

Thirsty Thursday and Hungry Hearts #144 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 […]

Audioreview: Hell’s Revenge – Eve Langlais

Audioreview: Hell’s Revenge – Eve Langlais

Hell’s Revenge is filled with a solid plot, mystery, suspense, some extreme hotness and lots of humor. Story: Hell’s Revenge is a risqué story, in which Muriel lives with her two consorts, David and Auric. And because of her sex-based powers, she has to make sure she gets enough sex. Which definitely brought out both a lot of steam, and some much needed   to help with all the break-neck speed action. Muriel finds out that she’s pregnant. Her up-until-now unknown mother shows up unexpectedly to share the news with her, Lucifer, and the two dads. Not only does she inform them all about the pregnancy, she also explains to them that she needs the baby once it’s born. Hell’s Revenge […]

Review: Final Siege – Scarlett Cole

Review: Final Siege – Scarlett Cole

Final Siege had everything I love in a romantic suspense! There was, indeed a lot of suspense, a bit of anguish, some romance, and a lot of past hurt to resolve. Story: Final Siege was such a great story – Cole is quickly becoming one of my go-to authors for romantic suspense. Delaney was alluded to in Under Fire, and getting to meet her was such a treat! Especially because she was not in a good situation when Mac finally caught up to her after years of them not seeing each other. One of the things I loved the most in Final Siege was the unresolved feelings and relationship between Mac and Delaney. Especially because they could have cleared everything […]

Review: The Charmer – Avery Flynn

Review: The Charmer – Avery Flynn

The Charmer was both charming, hot and sweet! I loved Hudson and Felicia – even as they were both trying to deny their feelings for the other. Story: The Charmer shows a different aspect of Hudson – he was the aloof brother in The Negotiator, but here, he was quite intense. Especially when he tried not to be. When he first met Felicia, there were sparks. But Hudson tried to deny those sparks. Especially as he realized that Felicia had a thing for Tyler, his brother’s former best friend. And so, the scheming began. Hudson proposed to help Felicia land Tyler, and that sure made for some very humorous moments. The Charmer was full of hot sparks, and the chemistry […]
