Blogtour Review : Golden Dancer – Tara Lain

Blogtour Review : Golden Dancer – Tara Lain

Golden Dancer has some very strong characters that move the story forward in different ways, and I loved that there is a ballet dancer involved! Between Mac, the investigative reporter, Trelain, the Russian ballet dancer, and Daniel, the philanthropic billionaire who may or may not be a thief, Golden Dancer was filled with mystery, attraction and quite a bit of tension. And because both Daniel and Mac were interested in Trelain, the story moved forward in a way where it was impossible to see where things would go. Especially because Mac was sure that Daniel had stolen a dancer statue by using the help of a hacker. The mystery and the evident attraction between the three men were tangible, and […]

Review: Wicked Need – Sawyer Bennett

Review: Wicked Need – Sawyer Bennett

Wicked Need is HOT! And it’s also very tender. And there’s some danger and quite a bit of self-doubt. With Wicked Need, Bennett took the tension and the hotness up yet another notch! I felt both sorry for Cat, and was angry at her expense because of what she’d been through with her old-ass husband, and things didn’t exactly get better for her once he kicked the bucket, either. And I was so surprised by Rand’s knight in shining armour complex! He seemed so detached in the prior books in the Wicked Horse series, I wasn’t sure he had it in him to be so caring, even if I knew he wasn’t judgemental! He was the perfect champion for Cat, […]

Review: Mr. Perfect – J.A. Huss

Review: Mr. Perfect – J.A. Huss

Mr. Perfect didn’t really work for me… I felt like it took far too long for the characters to let loose and help me get to know them. I never thought I’d have as much trouble with a Huss story as I had with Mr. Perfect to be frank. I had such trouble getting into the story, and I found it very difficult to get to know and connect with the main characters. I am not a huge fan of office romances, and this story started out not exactly like an office romance, but rather like an office sexcapade, where Mac held all the power, and Ellie just ended up letting him have his way. That was both a bit […]

Review: Let Me Count the Ways – P.G. Forte

Review: Let Me Count the Ways – P.G. Forte

Let me count the ways I loved this story! It is fun and playful, with mature characters who deserve to have love in their lives. Let Me Count the Ways is well written and leaves the reader never knowing what will happen next, yet very eager to learn. P G Forte masterfully brings the reader closer to Clare and Mike as the story unfolds. Even when a terrifying incident brings them closer only to totally tear them apart… All is not lost. Both Clare and Mike are insecure without much of a reason to be. Their encounters go from funny and light, to hot and heavy, to fighting and wanting to never see each other again. Clare meets her accountant […]

Review: Pent Up – Damon Suede

Review: Pent Up – Damon Suede

Pent Up was my March buddy-read with Brandee @ Bookworm Brandee, and as always, it was awesome chatting about the book with her after we both finished reading. I enjoyed the story, and especially that it was diverse in more ways than one. Me: I haven’t completely finished Pent Up yet… I find it very slow, and I’m not sure I like all the jabs at ‘white rich people’… Like there’s a score to be settled OK, I’ve finished… 3.5 stars I think this was less good than Hot Head… And mainly, I think that’s because Ruben and Andy were just the two of them for most of the story – it felt like that made the characters underdeveloped somehow. […]

Review: Love From A to Z – PG Forte

Review: Love From A to Z – PG Forte

Love from A to Z is playful and light, with some darker undertones as well. P. G. Forte’s Love from A to Z is a book about new beginnings and operates on insomnia. When April wakes up on Saturday morning, next to Zach, she has no idea who he or she is. The game here is sex. The reader is immediately immersed in Zach’s playfulness. There are some very visual scenes between April and Zack as they embark on their sexual journey, which set the pages on fire. And somehow the fact that they just met, even how they met, doesn’t lessen the intensity between them. It feels right – at least this reader thinks so. The story also manages […]

Review: The Confessions – Tiffany Reisz

Review: The Confessions – Tiffany Reisz

The Confessions is filled with tidbits of both Søren’s and Nora’s lives, and I loved the priest Ballard… so amazing! Reisz knows how to tell a story, and even the short stories that are shared in The Confessions are amazing! Of course, these would not be for those who haven’t read The Original Sinners series, because nothing would make sense. However, because I have read and loved that series, it was truly a joy to spend a little time with Søren and Ballard, then with Nora and Ballard. I loved how heartfelt their confessions were, and how open they both seemed to be – at two completely different times of their lives. The writing is beautiful and very moving, and […]

Review: Waiting for the Big One – PG Forte

Review: Waiting for the Big One – PG Forte

Waiting for the Big One is a short, sexy and steamy read! It is obvious from the start that Gabe has feelings for Derek. But she is so afraid to lose his friendship that she decides they will stay friends instead of becoming lovers because once that step has been taken, it can’t be taken back. When Zach moves in to Gabe’s building, she finds him intriguing and the fact he’s hot doesn’t hurt, making it easier to think that he could be the One. She even asks Derek for help and ends up doing a strip-tease in front of her window—just across from Zach’s apartment. Quicker than lightning, Zach knocks on her door and some really hot sex ensues. […]

Review: Thirty Nights with a Dirty Boy: Part 1 – Shiloh Walker

Review: Thirty Nights with a Dirty Boy: Part 1 – Shiloh Walker

Thirty Nights with a Dirty Boy was delicious and intriguing, as Walker always manages to include very complex characters, even in her shorter stories. I don’t know how she does it, but Walker manages to draw me in from the start, and Thirty Nights with a Dirty Boy is intriguing, to say the least. Both Ella and Sean are fleshed out and realistic, even if there is an air of mystery surrounding both of them. Ella is accomplished, at least on the outside, she has an organization to help women in trouble, and she’ll soon open up a safe haven for them to help them, the same way she was helped by her mentor in the past. However, beneath the […]

Review: Declaration of Courtship – Nalini Singh

Review: Declaration of Courtship – Nalini Singh

I have missed the psy-changeling universe, and Declaration of Courtship was the perfect cure! Very cleverly done, with an unconventional romance between an alpha lieutenant and a submissive female, I can’t stop smiling at their loving interactions! Singh was so very clever with Declaration of Courtship! I am not always a fan of novellas, because they feel somehow rushed in many ways. At the beginning of this one, however, it was made clear that Cooper and Grace had wanted each other ever since she joined the Snow Dancer pack six months ago. Thus, what might have felt like a rushed romance wasn’t rushed at all, and the story spanned over enough time for the courtship to be delectable. Grace was […]
