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 […]

Review: Once and Again – Elisabeth Barrett

Review: Once and Again – Elisabeth Barrett

Second-chance romances are the absolute best! And Once and Again was both nostalgic, sweet, hot and well done! Once and Again is filled with nostalgia, but there is also an underlying tension that isn’t all positive, especially in the beginning. Carolyn had a pretty easy childhood, her parents were well off, and if she visited the golf club, it was as a guest. One summer, she fell for one of the caddie’s and they had a short, but hot relationship – until her father caught them and sent the young man away in handcuffs. Years later, Carolyn is down on her luck, her father has lost all their money, and she’s working as an event organizor at the golf club […]

Review: Irresistible Refrain – Michelle Mankin

Review: Irresistible Refrain – Michelle Mankin

Irresistible Refrain is an irresistible story of a broken girl and the boy she’s loved since she was little. Music, a fast-paced life and the fact that she’s with his best friend instead of him made this so compelling! Lace was so very lost, and being back in the Tempest tour bus didn’t really change any of that. Even as she had been away from the band for a long time, she picked up her relationship with War as soon as she came back, even if Bryan was looking at her differently than usual at this time. Irresistible Refrain showed the ugly side of the music industry, especially when it came to War and Lace. Drug-use, not taking care of […]

Review: Unconventional – Avery Aster

Review: Unconventional – Avery Aster

Unconventional is a hot, fun and yes, very unconventional read. Fans of Avery’s Manhattanites will love Unconventional, both because of the humour that is familiar to them and because characters they already know are a part of the story. Rocco and Luigi have been feeling that Jemma has withdrawn from the both in recent months, and while they understand that she has been under a lot of pressure, they want to add a little on their own – they want to marry her and be a family, the three of them together. The story is a little over the top, but it’s hot, and it’s filled with quite a bit of humour, so I quite enjoyed myself! Because I’m not […]

Review: Wicked Lust – Sawyer Bennett

Review: Wicked Lust – Sawyer Bennett

Wicked Lust is so hot my kindle almost melted, and yet, there is also a real story and a plot that is a complete page-turner! Sawyer Bennett has her hot, erotic scenes down pat, I needed an electric fan to cool down so I could continue reading Wicked Lust! And on top of that her characters are multifaceted and complex, the story and the plot well done, and I just couldn’t get enough! There is plenty of very kinky sex, and my eyes almost popped out a few times – but it didn’t shock me enough to stop me from reading 😉 And as I said, there was a real, solid story around all the sexiness, and that made Wicked […]

Review: Too Hot to Handle – Victoria Dahl

Review: Too Hot to Handle – Victoria Dahl

Too Hot to Handle is a complex story of finding oneself, realizing all of one’s potentials and possibly finding love along the way as well. I briefly got to meet Merry in Close Enough to Touch, and I was instantly curious about her. A strong woman, but one who has been put down more often than not, Merry has changed jobs many times, but she is set on making it in Jackson. Both because her best friend Grace lives there now, and because she’s gotten the dream-job in restoring a ghost town just outside of Jackson. Too Hot to Handle shows a lot of the changes Merry goes through, and some of those changes are in part thanks to her […]

Review: The Heat Is On – Katie Rose

Review: The Heat Is On – Katie Rose

The Heat Is On is one of the sweetest second chance at love romances I have read! Tracy and Connor were both very tentative, for different, but obvious reasons. I loved meeting the baseball players from Sonics again, and the way Tracy and Connor dealt with adversity. I think what made The Heat Is On so irresistible to me was the fact that Tracy had four very young children, and while Connor was taken aback when he first found out, he didn’t let that hinder him in his quest to win Tracy back. And those kids were just so cute, too – even if it was definitely a lot for Tracy to take care of them, especially because her creepy […]
