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 […]

Audio Review: Lucifer’s Daughter – Eve Langlais

Audio Review: Lucifer’s Daughter – Eve Langlais

Lucifer’s Daughter is Fun, feisty and with enough action to keep you compelled and immersed in the story from start to finish. Any time I pick up a Langlais book, I’m pretty sure I’ll get lots of humor, lots of sexy hotness, and a good story to entertain me. That’s also what I got with Lucifer’s Daughter, Muriel was a hoot, and her being a virgin made dear old daddy Satan mad! She really needed to sin more – if not, people might think he was failing at being bad. Muriel had decided to wait for love before sharing herself fully, though, both because a lot of guys would do anything to tap Lucifer’s Daughter… and others would do anything to […]

Review: Hard to Hold – Katie Rose

Review: Hard to Hold – Katie Rose

Hard to Hold is a sweet contemporary romance in the spin-off to The Boys of Summer series, with solid characters and a good plot. Contemporary romances that include sports heroes are among my favorites, and Hard to Hold is well done, with complex characters that I wanted to spend even more time with! The romance was swoony, and Logan was toe-curling! I can’t imagine what Logan went through – out with some friends for a few beers, a woman he’d spent one night with a year before dumped a three-month old baby in his lap and told him he was the father and it was his turn to take care of Cinnamon… At least, women have 9 months to get used […]

Audioreview: Pack Challenge – Shelley Laurenston

Audioreview: Pack Challenge – Shelley Laurenston

Pack Challenge is fast paced, a bit mysterious and plenty hot and quite humorous at times. Pack Challenge was my introduction to Laurenston’s writing, and I definitely want more of her stories. I enjoyed her take on shapeshifters, and I really loved Sara from the beginning. Both her snarky relationship with her friends, and the way she interacted with the other characters made me laugh sometimes, and roll my eyes a little other times. The universe of these shifters was well done, and I am very curious as to what else will happen with the Magnus Pack in the future. The chemistry between Sara and Zach was off the chart from the beginning of Pack Challenge, and it was especially […]

Review: Archangel’s Heart – Nalini Singh

Review: Archangel’s Heart – Nalini Singh

I loved Archangel’s Heart, both because Raphael and Elena were the main characters, and because we delved into Elena’s past, through her quest for genealogy while they were in Morocco on Cadre business. I don’t know what it is about Singh, but when I read her series – even the ones where there is a lot of trife and fights and uncertainty, I feel comforted when I pick up a new book. Archangel’s Heart is no different, and I loved being immersed in Elena and Raphael’s love once more. The overall feel of this story was quite tense, because the cadre was summoned to Morocco, and the sect that summoned them needed to know whether or not one of the […]

Review: Last Kiss Goodnight – Gena Showalter

Review: Last Kiss Goodnight – Gena Showalter

Last Kiss Goodnight is very melancholy in some ways, and it also truly angered me in other ways! Well written, with multi-faceted characters and an overall plot that was masterfully executed. I’m not sure why I haven’t read Last Kiss Goodnight until now – it’s been on my kindle more or less since it was released, and I was a huge fan of the Alien Huntress series, and I knew that this is a sort of spin-off series set in the same universe with some characters showing up. And wow, I was completely transported to another place, where aliens and humans live together, but not necessarily in harmony. I was both elated by the romance and the pure heart some […]

Review: One Hot December – Tiffany Reisz

Review: One Hot December – Tiffany Reisz

One Hot December is the crown jewel of the Men at Work series – it’s beautiful, tender, hot, sweet, funny, flirt and my feels are all oh so invested! I think what surprised me the most with One Hot December was the complete and utter sense of tenderness I felt while reading about Ian and Flash! Reisz always manages to draw me in, but somehow, I got even more with this story – which is another surprise as it was only 224 pages long, and yet, I am completely and utterly satisfied. My heart is still beating hard and fast, and I am sure my eyes look a little wet, too. This story, it just has the best parts of […]

Review: Trust – Jana Aston

Review: Trust – Jana Aston

Trust was amazing! The perfect blend of hot, humorous, romantic, sweet, awkward  and just plain fun. Chloe got to me in a big way, just like I knew she would! I have to say that Trust is my favorite in Aston’s Wrong series! Chloe and Boyd were both really relatable characters I could totally believe in! And Aston’s writing voice gets stronger with each book she releases, it’s distinctive and filled with snarky humor, as well as a certain vulnerability that isn’t that common to find in romantic comedies. I already knew Chloe and Boyd a little bit as they showed up in both Wrong and Right, and I have to say that seeing them together made me very happy! […]

Review: Fling – Jana Aston

Review: Fling – Jana Aston

Fling has Aston’s trademark humor, and I laughed out loud more than once. There was also a very relatable work-place romance, characters I wanted to spend more time with, and some glorious hotness! I had already met Sandra and Gabe, very briefly, in Right by the same author, and I loved seeing what they were up to after Everly’s shenanigans at the New Year’s Party in Fling! Sandra is the kind of efficient administrative assistant I’m sure every boss would like to have! She does have a naughty side, though, but she doesn’t let it out to play at work. Apart from that one time during a quarterly meeting when her best friend, Preston, has changed a quiz about the […]

Review: Mr. Mysterious – J.A. Huss

Review: Mr. Mysterious – J.A. Huss

Mr. Mysterious did bring some answers, but it brought ever more questions as well! The Mister series becomes faster paced with a plot that thickens more with each installment! I loved Mr. Mysterious, both because I was curious about Pax, and because Cindy was such a hoot! That girl actually narrates parts of her actions as they happen 🙂 and she had me laughing out loud. Her flirting with Pax was outrageous, but I think it was needed in order to really capture his attention. The overall plot moved forward very nicely here, but I still feel like I have more questions than answers. And that is definitely right up Ms. Huss’s usual alley – to keep us all guessing […]
