Review: Good Girl – Jana Aston

Review: Good Girl – Jana Aston

Good Girl was delightful! Aston did well – she even made me love her virgin heroine (which is truly a feat, I usually don’t enjoy virgin heroines in my romances). And there was so much humor, and all the feels. Where do I even start with Good Girl? It was so much fun! But it was also very, very hot. Lydia is not your typical romance heroine, that’s for sure. She’s a little naïve. A lot fun. Very organized. A great friend. And she works hard. She really want’s to get rid of her pesky virginity though. In fact, that’s been the case for quite a while. She just hasn’t really felt like ripping her clothes off for anyone so […]

Chat Review: Dear Bridget, I Want You – Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward

Chat Review: Dear Bridget, I Want You – Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward

Dear Bridget, I Want you is a fun and sexy read – and it was even more so because I buddy-read it with my blogger wife, Brandee @ Bookworm Brandee. Lexxie: Hello dahling 🙂 I loved Dear Bridget!!! And I’m happy you did, too! I’ll put my comments underneath yours 😉 Brandee: I’m so happy we decided to buddy-read this one, wifey. I really enjoyed it. I felt Keeland and Ward did well in fleshing out the characters, creating a compelling story, and combining humor with some serious-ness as well. Lexxie : I loved that we were able to buddy-read this, too – FINALLY, right? They did flesh out the characters, and the humor had me laughing really hard – […]

Audioreview: Hounded – Kevin Hearne

Audioreview: Hounded – Kevin Hearne

Hounded was a fantastic story, with really well done mythology, character development, action, and plot! Story: I did a buddy listen of Hounded with Carole @ Carole’s Random Life. We both agreed that Oberon was our favorite character. The overall story really appealed to me, because it had a druid main character, Atticus. And, as I said to Carole at one point, it was refreshing to have a male protagonist in adult Urban Fantasy. I know there are others, but it’s been a while since I’ve read or listened to one. Hounded starts off with showing the readers what this universe is like, there are gods – from all pantheons – fae, vampires, shifters, witches, and of course out druid. […]

Review: Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda – Becky Albertalli

Review: Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda – Becky Albertalli

Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda is one of the best YA books ever! I loved all the characters, they were so realistic. And I loved the dilemmas Simon and Blue faced with realizing they were gay. This is a book I’m getting for the library at the school where I teach, I think every teenager should read it. Story: I don’t think there’s much I can say about Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda that hasn’t been said before. Simon is just the perfect character in a young adult story. He’s a little awkward. A little obsessed with himself and his own problems – even if he loves his friends and his family. And he’s more than a little […]

Review: The Schemer – Avery Flynn

Review: The Schemer – Avery Flynn

The Schemer was a fun, hot read, where the main characters did everything they could not to fall in love with each other. Story: Both Tyler and Everly made me swoon! The Schemer – Tyler, thought he had everything he had ever dreamed of. Until Everly moved into the apartment above his. Stomping her high heals at all hours of the day and night, and generally pissing him off. Everly knew from the first time they met that Tyler was not the guy for her. Embarrassed of his humble upbringing, he didn’t even speak in his Waterbury accent anymore. And she was a proud Riverside woman. Never one to let her past bring her down! The Schemer happens just after […]

Audioreview: Hell’s Revenge – Eve Langlais

Audioreview: Hell’s Revenge – Eve Langlais

Hell’s Revenge is filled with a solid plot, mystery, suspense, some extreme hotness and lots of humor. Story: Hell’s Revenge is a risqué story, in which Muriel lives with her two consorts, David and Auric. And because of her sex-based powers, she has to make sure she gets enough sex. Which definitely brought out both a lot of steam, and some much needed   to help with all the break-neck speed action. Muriel finds out that she’s pregnant. Her up-until-now unknown mother shows up unexpectedly to share the news with her, Lucifer, and the two dads. Not only does she inform them all about the pregnancy, she also explains to them that she needs the baby once it’s born. Hell’s Revenge […]

Review: The Charmer – Avery Flynn

Review: The Charmer – Avery Flynn

The Charmer was both charming, hot and sweet! I loved Hudson and Felicia – even as they were both trying to deny their feelings for the other. Story: The Charmer shows a different aspect of Hudson – he was the aloof brother in The Negotiator, but here, he was quite intense. Especially when he tried not to be. When he first met Felicia, there were sparks. But Hudson tried to deny those sparks. Especially as he realized that Felicia had a thing for Tyler, his brother’s former best friend. And so, the scheming began. Hudson proposed to help Felicia land Tyler, and that sure made for some very humorous moments. The Charmer was full of hot sparks, and the chemistry […]

Audio Review: Becoming Dragon – Eve Langlais

Audio Review: Becoming Dragon – Eve Langlais

Becoming Dragon was a delightful tale, filled with humor, action, steam and more. The narration was well done, and I was so happy to have this to listen to on my commute to and from work. Story: Becoming Dragon is about… you guessed it – dragons! And it’s by Eve Langlais, so I knew I was in for some good laughs. Plus steamy romance, and I also got a rather down to earth and doubting hero. Brandon had been experimented on, and with his DNA sliced, he was in a weird hybrid form that made him think of himself as a monster. Aimi, however, did not find him to be monstrous at all. Quite the opposite, which made for some […]

Audio Review: The Baller – Vi Keeland

Audio Review: The Baller – Vi Keeland

The Baller was a hot story – the sports reporter and the professional football player started off on the wrong foot – but once they got it right, they got it good! Story: Delilah was my kind of character! In The Baller, she was a sports journalist, and she covered football. She thought she was incapable of loving anyone, because of her past, but Brody made her so mad she knew her emotions worked, at least. The first time Brody and Delilah met, she was all ready to interview him. After a game, in the locker room, and to see what she was made of, he dropped his towel. Right before she went on air. Brody was the king of […]

Audio Review: The Negotiator – Avery Flynn

Audio Review: The Negotiator – Avery Flynn

The Negotiator kept me company with laughter and steam on my way to and from work. Fun, hot and feisty, it kept things light. Story: The Negotiator helped me laugh while commuting – which is not that frequent an occurrence really. I leave the house before it’s light out, and arrive very early at work to prepare things. Getting prepared with Sawyer and Clover made everything lighter. Because his mom was always setting him up with socialites, Sawyer and his brother came up with the idea to hire a buffer. One person to keep his mom – and the bridezillas to be – at arm’s length. Only, Sawyer’s brother made sure a fun woman was the most likely candidate. One […]
