Review: Nobody But You – Jill Shalvis

Review: Nobody But You – Jill Shalvis

WOW – Shalvis has outdone herself with Nobody But You! Jacob and Sophie are such great characters, even if they were both pretty closed off to the world at the beginning of the story. Sweet, tender, sexy, humourous and sometimes a little sad, I couldn’t stop reading, and I loved every moment. I really didn’t think any of the Kincaid siblings would appeal to me more than Hud did, but Jacob managed to steal the first place in my reading heart! Because he was a little bit broken from the war, but also because he was very sensitive and straight-forward, I fell for him even faster than Sophie did! Nobody But You is a beautiful love story, and I have […]

Review: Hawke – Sawyer Bennett

Review: Hawke – Sawyer Bennett

Everybody knows I love Cold Fury Hockey, and Hawke, he definitely made me melt, but then, so did Vale! Hawke’s story is very complicated, because he and Vale were together for four years when they were younger, up until the day he left Sydney for Pittsburg to play professional hockey. Then, she told him she didn’t love him, and she never looked back. Fast forward several years, and they meet again, when Hawke starts playing for Cold Fury Hockey, and Vale is the new PT / physiotherapist for the club. All of his feelings of betrayal and hurt come back to the surface, while at the same time he just can’t help but feel utterly attracted to her. The story […]

Audio Review: FORD Taut / Slack – J.A. Huss

Audio Review: FORD Taut / Slack – J.A. Huss

Rutherford Aston is an ass, a creep, a freak… And he knows it! It’s just that he might not be as bad as he thinks when it comes down to it. I had forgotten what an ass Ford could be! Fucking Ford. He’s still my favorite guy in this series, though, and the narration made it even more so. The emotions were stronger, and hearing Duran’s voice being Ford was awesome! The pacing was well done, and I have to say I loved getting to know more about Ford, and meeting Sasha, Ashleigh and Kate was something I appreciated just as much the second time around. Seeing the lengths he would go to for his friends, while still thinking he […]

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 […]

Review: A Fighting Chance – Shannon Stacey

Review: A Fighting Chance – Shannon Stacey

A Fighting Chance is a very sweet, and hot, second-chance-at love romance, and I really enjoy the characters as well as their journey. I found the ending to be a little cheesy, though, and would have liked to spend a little bit more time with Del and Brendan. I loved how self-assured and sassy Del was from the beginning of Fighting Chance! She’s at a casino hotel, where she’s arrived before her girlfriends for a weekend of fun before her friend gets married. As she explores the hotel, she sees that there are MMA fights during the weekend, and she comes face to face with a huge poster of her ex-boyfriend, Brendan, and even in a photo, he affects her […]

Review: Now and Ten – Mira Lyn Kelly

Review: Now and Ten – Mira Lyn Kelly

Now and Then is a great second chance at love romances, and I had been looking forward to Ford’s story since I read the first installment in this series. Brynn and Ford had such amazing chemistry, and I loved getting to know them better. Ford and Brynn were dating in college, and Ford was sure they would get married and have children, even when their relationship was new. And they were great together, until they weren’t. Together anymore, that is. Brynn broke up with Ford by e-mail and just didn’t come back to college. When he called her, she told him she had found someone else. Fast forward a few years, and Ford the computer geek has several popular app […]

Review: The Rogue’s Proposal – Jennifer Haymore

Review: The Rogue’s Proposal – Jennifer Haymore

The Rogue’s Proposal is a very hot, sensual and mysterious tale! I have no idea why I’ve let this stay hidden on my kindle for so long! Luke and Em were quite different from the characters I usually follow in a historical romance, and that made The Rogue’s Proposal a unique read. Em, a young widow, was willing to do whatever it took to find the man who had murdered her husband and run away with her family’s fortune. Luke was after the same man, but for different reasons, and when Em showed up to tell him she would go on this manhunt with him, all he could think about was how delicate and sweet-looking she was. His thoughts went […]

Review: Fighting Dirty – Lori Foster

Review: Fighting Dirty – Lori Foster

Fighting Dirty is as close to perfection as a story can be! Armie and Rissy *sighs* Fighting Dirty is among my most anticipated books for 2016, and Lori Foster outdid herself! I have been longing for Armie and Merissa’s story ever since I met them in the first Ultimate book. The tension between the two of them kept increasing and in their own book, it was palpable. I loved getting to now both of them better, especially how they reacted when they were under pressure. Merissa is a very strong heroine, she was truly put through a lot in Fighting Dirty, but she took most of it in stride, and that made her very dear to me. There is even […]

Review: Better When He’s Bad – Jay Crownover

Review: Better When He’s Bad – Jay Crownover

Better When He’s Bad is dark and gritty, and while Bax and Dovie grew up in similar situations, one has managed to hold on to hope and loyalty, while the other thinks a life of crime is the only way to go. There were many things I really enjoyed in Better When He’s Bad, and both of the main characters were among those things. Dovie was so much stronger than she looked, she had been through a lot, but she held on to her inner goodness, and was not shy about sharing her hopes. Bax was much darker, but he had good reasons for seeing the future the way he did – either he’d be back in prison rather soon, […]

Review: Touch & Go – Mira Lyn Kelly

Review: Touch & Go – Mira Lyn Kelly

Touch & Go is extremely hot, and I loved how Sam and Ava had been friends since they were kids, both of them hanging on to their friendship when their hormones told them there could be much more for them in store. Touch & Go is one of the best friends to lovers romances I have ever had the pleasure of reading! Sam and Ava had chemistry galore, but they were both hiding behind their long friendship, until that just wasn’t possible anymore. When Sam agreed to be Ava’s ‘date’ to a party at her workplace, to keep a colleague from continuing to try to pick her up, they shared one of the hottest kisses in history, and let’s just […]
