Review: Mystery Man – Kristen Ashley

Review: Mystery Man – Kristen Ashley

Mystery Man is classic KA! Very, very alpha male, lots of humour, love, suspense and squishy heart on my part… Story: There is so much going on in Mystery Man, some of it good, some of it bad, some of it ugly – all of it pretty amazing. Once I got over Hawk’s bossiness and Gwen’s waffling, I fell in love with them both. And as always, Ashley brought out the big guns when it comes to turns of phrases that made my heart turn over! Gwen’s sister was so much trouble, and she didn’t seem to care that she put her family in danger with her antics. Good thing that Gwen was on a lot of hot, alpha-men’s radar. And they […]

Review: Elliott Redeemed – Scarlett Cole

Review: Elliott Redeemed – Scarlett Cole

Elliott Redeemed brought me the secrets Elliott kept, of his past, of how they affected his present, and what he did to deal with his darkness. Until he met Kendalee and Daniel, he was utterly lost. Story: There was a lot going on in Elliott Redeemed. Preload was back from tour, and more of the band members had moved out from their common house to be with their significant others. Elliott was back to having nightmares about his childhood, and I really wasn’t sure any good was going to happen for him. As he went to the Children’s Hospital to visit children with cancer, he stopped by at another room as well. That’s how he met Daniel. Who had set […]

Review: Wicked Kiss – Rebecca Zanetti

Review: Wicked Kiss – Rebecca Zanetti

Wicked Kiss was yet another fast-paced, action-packed romance in the Realm Enforcers series. I loved Tori, and the way she brought Adam to his knees. Story: I loved the strength Tori showed throughout Wicked Kiss, even if she put herself in danger at times because of her stubbornness. Adam pushed all her buttons, though, so it really wasn’t difficult to forgive her for some lapses in judgement. The overall Realm Enforcers plot continued with the search for the mastermind behind Appollo, and the suspense was sharp-edged. There was danger everywhere, and Tori needed to learn to use her power, rather than let it use her. There were more than one show-down, and the last one made me completely breathless. Adam’s […]

Review: Irresistible You – Kate Meader

Review: Irresistible You – Kate Meader

Irresistible You showed a different aspect of hockey-teams and trades, and while it’s not the first one I’ve read with female owners, it was one of the best! Good hockey, strong romance, and great character development. Story: After their father’s death, three half-sisters who didn’t know each other well inherited ownership of the Chicago Rebels hockey club. Harper had been working with the franchise for years, and she wanted the team to succeed. Bonding with her sisters or the hot, new player she had acquired for the team was not part of the plan. Irresistible You played with my heartstrings, and I also enjoyed all the hockey talk. Strong female characters, and a male lead that made me drool sure […]

Review: Wicked Burn – Rebecca Zanetti

Review: Wicked Burn – Rebecca Zanetti

Wicked Burn left me with a ‘holy fast-paced action Batman!’ feeling… my head is practically spinning right now. Story: Simone was framed for treason, as a member of the ruling body of witches, she was powerful, maybe too much so for her own good. However, she was so smart she was able to deal with a lot of things while still preparing for her trial. Nick wanted to save her from the guard, and was taken with her back to Dublin and thus was able to spend more time with her. Alone. Tori and Bear were snatched by the guard as well, and because of this, Tori learned that there were other species than humans in the world – which […]

Review: Jilted – Sawyer Bennett

Review: Jilted – Sawyer Bennett

Jilted was a feel-good romance, second-chance-at love story that had lots of obstacles in the way for the two main characters. Bennett really has a way to reign in her readers, and that’s exactly what happened when I started reading Jilted! Both Eden and Coop were great characters, which made understanding where Coop was coming from in the beginning a bit easier to deal with. And everyone who has ever chatte books with me know that second chance at love is one of my all time favorite tropes! Eden and Coop had both been through their personal hell, but meeting up again didn’t exactly make things any easier for either of them. Jilted starts with Eden finding out that her […]

Review: Under Fire – Scarlett Cole

Review: Under Fire – Scarlett Cole

Under Fire pushed all the right buttons, romance, characters and character development, pace, action, suspense, plot and story. I loved every single thing about this story! Cole has definitely outdone herself with Under Fire! I was mesmerized from start to finish, and the action started basically on the first page. All buttons to make this a favorite read were ticked, and I almost didn’t manage to sleep because I’d rather spend my time with Louisa, Six and the guys from Eagle Security. It was a fast-paced story, with a lot of danger, but Louisa’s logical mind as well as Six’s strength and ability to get a good overview kept things on the right side of safe most of the time. […]

#Review: Built – Jay Crownover

#Review: Built – Jay Crownover

Built was a very emotional story, and my heart broke for Sayer more than once. Zeb was there to pick up the pieces and help her build a new one, though. Built definitely got to me, because Zeb and Sayer – while seemingly so different from each other – were very similar when it came to the truly important things in their lives. Sayer, holding on to control of every aspect of her life tried her best to resist, but Zeb was too persistent. Zeb was also reliable, strong and loyal and so very lovable. The whole Saints of Denver series worked well for me, and Built was one of the reasons why. The overall story, the side characters, the […]

Review: Lost and Found Sisters – Jill Shalvis

Review: Lost and Found Sisters – Jill Shalvis

Shalvis hit it way out of the ballpark with Lost and Found Sisters! What a strong story, with characters who made my heart both swoon and ache. Lost and Found Sisters is a bit different from Shalvis’ usual novels, but still has the same feel to it. A deep story, where Quinn, the main character makes several discoveries about herself, which in turn brings her to move out of LA to a small village to try to find her way, while also getting to know some people that will become very important to her. The main theme in Lost and Found Sisters is family, and what exactly family is. Does it have to mean those people we are related to […]

#ARC #Review: Anarchy Chained – J.A. Huss

Anarchy Chained is quite the finale to the SuperAlpha series! So much was going on, and the wicked twists and turns were out of this world – literally! Anarchy Chained was such a wicked trip! I am still trying to catch my breath, get my wits about me and make my heartbeat slow back down! Huss is a master at mind-fucks! She really, really is. And with this story, she took it even further than usual in my opinion. At the beginning, I was a bit lost, and I continued to feel like the story was a couple of paces ahead of me for most of the time, and it was truly thrilling to never guess a single thing that […]
