Audioreview: Wasted Lust – JA Huss

Audioreview: Wasted Lust – JA Huss

Wasted Lust was one of my favorite Company / Rook & Ronin stories, both because I had been so curious about Sasha, and because anything that happens in this universe is bound to be amazing… Listening to a favorite book enhances the experience in many ways, and Wasted Lust is proof of that! The narrators did an amazing job, and they managed to bring my distaste for Jax forward in the beginning of the story. There is one male and one female narrator, so that Sasha’s chapters are narrated by the woman and Jax’ chapters by the man. This worked very well, and I was so completely immersed in the story I sometimes didn’t want to leave my car and […]

Blogtour Review: Cowboys Don’t Ride Unicorns – Tara Lain

Blogtour Review: Cowboys Don’t Ride Unicorns – Tara Lain

Cowboys Don’t Ride Unicorns tackles quite a few pre-conceptions, and it did so with amazing characters! I think Danny and Laurie are my favorites by Lain *sighs* I’m still swooning, they’re so cute! I was such a happy reader with Cowboys Don’t Ride Unicorns. It started with Danny not only winning a bull-rider rodeo, but also saving another bull-rider’s life. I was very happy to see Rand and Kai as well as the kids again, too. I met those characters in Cowboys Don’t Come Out, the first story in this amazing series. Danny was my kind of hero, because while he is tough on the outside, he is all lovely and sensitive on the inside. He wasn’t afraid to show […]

Review: The Upside of Unrequited – Becky Albertalli

Review: The Upside of Unrequited – Becky Albertalli

The Upside of Unrequited is pretty much a perfect book. I have not a single complaint, I loved everything from the writing to the characters to the story to the beautiful and extremely strong feels! I was practically enchanted by The Upside of Unrequited – and I think one of the reasons was because I just understood Molly so very well. How she was a serial crusher, but never dared to completely put herself out there and try to see if the guy liked her back. From the safety of distance, she could crush and feel the butterflies, but make sure she’d never get hurt. And while I didn’t think of it that way when I was her age, now, […]

Review: Odinsbarn – Siri Pettersen

Review: Odinsbarn – Siri Pettersen

Odinsbarn is a fantasy that includes the kind of epic-ness that is so hard to find it seems almost impossible. Alas, it’s completely possible! Odinsbarn is a fantastic story, where the mythology has a certain Norse feel to it. Where the 12-person council that rules over the world seems to be rotten on the inside; all the while fearing the rot of those that are other. I found the fear of other and how that fear was dealt with to be both fascinating and accurate. The folks in this story were proud of their tails, their history, and their ability to share energy with the earth.The Seer was there to protect them from the blind, and I was so completely […]

Review: Breathe – Kristen Ashley

Review: Breathe – Kristen Ashley

Breathe was amazing! I think it’s the Colorado Mountain story that played with my feels the most! I cried. I laughed. And it was righteous! Not only did I stay up until after 3 am to finish Breathe, I had to message Brandee while I was reading because there was so much going on, and I knew she’d know straight away what I was talking about! Good thing we live in different time zones – at least this once it made me happy. For someone who usually rolls her eyes at ‘older’ virgins in her romance novels, I fell hard and quick for Faye! And she may have seemed very shy and reserved on the outside, but on the inside, […]

Review: Lady Luck – Kristen Ashley

Review: Lady Luck – Kristen Ashley

Lady Luck was more tender than the other stories in this series, both Ty and Lexie had been through hell, and it wasn’t over by a long shot. The beginning of Lady Luck showed me straight away that this was going to be a quite unconventional romance! Lexie and Ty were strangers, but somehow, Lexie had been persuaded to pick up Ty when he left prison after several year on the inside where he served time for murder. And she was to drive him wherever he wanted to go. Little did she know that Ty had planned to marry the woman whom he had arranged for to pick him up. And his first stop after prison was Las Vegas. Not […]

Audioreview: Winter Moon – Dannika Dark

Audioreview: Winter Moon – Dannika Dark

Winter Moon was like an epilogue to the whole Seven series, and I felt like I was visiting with friends I hadn’t seen in a long time. As always, Poole narrated some of my favorite shifters to perfection, and Winter Moon included all of the characters that are part of the Weston pack. Poole’s voices managed to easily distinguish them all, and made my experience of a holiday without electricity a really good one. Some chapters gave a quick view into one of the main couple’s lives, while others involved the pack as a whole. There were a lot of funny quips, especially between the guys, and I loved seeing them with children being a bit older. Also, how the […]

Review: Not If I See You First – Eric Lindstrom

Review: Not If I See You First – Eric Lindstrom

Not If I See You First was both delightful and sad. Very real, and with a dash of drama thanks to Parker and the way she thought about herself first – like many other teenagers tend to do. I’m not sure why I kept Not If I See You First for so long on my kindle without reading it – it was as if it was hiding in plain sight! Parker was a very prickly heroine, and some might not enjoy her at all. I found her to be refreshing in some ways, though, because not only was she brutally honest, she was able to deal with the aftermath of her honesty as well. Her life was not an easy […]

Review: Accidentally on Purpose – Jill Shalvis

Review: Accidentally on Purpose – Jill Shalvis

Accidentally on Purpose continues in the same vein as the prior Heartbreaker Bay books, and the romance made me melt into a puddle. This series is filled with feel-good romance, great friendships and off the chart chemistry! Accidentally on Purpose is sweet, quirky, hot and funny, I had a really good time getting to know Elle and Archer better. It was apparent in the prior books that they were reluctantly attracted to each other, and that they were both holding back. Understanding why was very nice, and seeing behind Elle’s close to perfect façade made me like her even more. A go-getter and caregiver, Elle is always there for her friends, giving advice, helping out, working hard… But she doesn’t […]

Review: Finding Kyle – Sawyer Bennett

Review: Finding Kyle – Sawyer Bennett

From the start of Finding Kyle, I had that awful feeling in my stomach, you know, when you know something is wrong? Just kind of waiting for that bad thing to happen… that, coupled with the tension and sexual chemistry between Kyle and his neighbor, Jane, made for a very good read! Finding Kyle had a lot of suspense, but it was a very quiet sort of suspense that came with the aftermath of Kyle having been an undercover cop in a very bad motorcycle gang. And where he, himself, had done a lot of very ugly things in order to be accepted into the inner sanctuary of the club in order to bring them all down. And dealing with […]
