Review: Three Breaths – Belle Brooks

Review: Three Breaths – Belle Brooks

Oh my goodness! I don’t even know where to start with my praise for Three Breaths! The suspense is killing me! And I want to know who the Wolf is! Story: This series of mystery and suspense is just so well done! Morgan is still fighting for her life, but barely. Her Husband Reid is almost worse off than she is – with the uncertainty, the fear, and trying to stay strong for their two children. And the way the Wolf is still chasing Morgan, playing with her, toying with her emotions… It is both maddening, scary and incredibly suspenseful. Characters: Morgan is the kidnapped woman. Reid, her husband at home. Wolf, the kidnapper… and he has help. Linda, Morgan’s […]

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 […]

Review: Shattered Fear – Tara Thomas

Review: Shattered Fear – Tara Thomas

Shattered Fear started out pretty strong, but as the story went on, I found Janie to be a rather weak female character. For a seasoned police officer, she acted more like a damsel in distress than someone who could take control and catch a killer. Story: The mystery is pretty strong in Shattered Fear, and I enjoyed how one character remained unknown until the end. Only alluded to as ‘The Gentleman’ the brain behind missing women and murdered dancers never showed his face. Not even to the readers. Apart from the mystery, though, I was left with wanting more. I wanted more character development. More interactions between the protagonists. More of the actual police work. Characters: Janie was working as […]

Review: Indecent Exposure – Tessa Bailey

Review: Indecent Exposure – Tessa Bailey

Indecent Exposure is a whirlwind romance between a broken Jack and a strong Katie. I loved how they both helped each other heal, and deal with life’s difficulties in a healthy way. Story: Indecent Exposure follows Jack, whom I met in Disorderly Conduct, and Katie. Their hot romance is so fast it swept me off my feet. I loved how they were so in tune to each other from when they first met. And how they both wanted to be more because of their meeting. Characters: Jack is a big flirt, drinking too much alcohol, and hiding a lot of hurt. Even his best friends don’t know everything about him. When his excessive drinking starts to truly hurt those he […]

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 […]

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: About That Kiss – Jill Shalvis

Review: About That Kiss – Jill Shalvis

About That Kiss brought out the feels. You know how it is when you pick up a book, and it feels like you’re hanging out with your best friends? Living through their struggles and their good times right there with them? Shalvis does that to me. With every book she writes – no matter if there are characters I’ve already met or if they are completely new to me. Story: About That Kiss has a very slow-burning romance, all the friendships, and a very good mystery. I loved getting to know Joe Malone better, and Kylie was the perfect match for him. With her unconventional profession as a wood worker, she managed to see through his tough exterior and find […]
