Review: Tempting the Cowboy (Paint River Ranch #1) – Elizabeth Otto

Review: Tempting the Cowboy (Paint River Ranch #1) – Elizabeth Otto

*I received a free ARC of Tempting the Cowboy from Entangled Publishing LLC via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* Tempting the Cowboy started out as a sweet contemporary romance, with a sexy cowboy and an ex-cop who felt she needed to escape the big city to get her life back together. Rylan is ready to do the work, and being a house-keeper at a ranch with guest cottages doesn’t scare her in the least. Cole is a tall, sexy, busy cowboy, and their first meeting was not the best it could be. The chemistry was definitely present from the very start, though, but both Cole and Rylan were fighting it – for different, and very personal reasons. As […]

Review: Her Sexiest Mistake – Jill Shalvis

Review: Her Sexiest Mistake – Jill Shalvis

*I received a free ARC of Her Sexiest Mistake from Grand Central Publishing via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* Her Sexiest Mistake has all the ingredients a fun and sexy contemporary romance needs to keep me entertained, and on my toes while reading. Mia thinks she has it all – she is far, far away from the trailer park she grew up in, she has a great job, and her life is nice and orderly – with no man to mess things up for her. That is, until Kevin moves in and she can’t help but flirt with him. She wants to keep it very casual, though, only sex and play, no serious business at all for her […]

Blogtour, Giveaway, Review: Shine (Mageri #5) – Dannika Dark

*I received a free ARC of Shine from Enchantress of Books Blogtours for my participation and reviewing for the tour* Shine is the last book in the Mageri series, and it was a little bitter-sweet to start reading since I knew this when I got it. Silver really gets into her own in Shine, and there are so many twists and turns that I had to remind myself to keep breathing, and to get my heart rate down to a normal level. Logan is still my number one book boyfriend, that man is incredible, and his love for Silver probably makes the world go around. The story-arc continues from the prior books in this excellent urban fantasy series, Shine ties […]

Review: Searching for Someday (Searching For #1) – Jennifer Probst

Review: Searching for Someday (Searching For #1) – Jennifer Probst

*I received a free ARC of Searching for Someday from Gallery Books via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* Searching for Someday is a very sweet romance, where Kate tries her best to just be a good friend, a good manager and leave dating to other people. After her disastrous date – number 100 – she thinks that dating is not for her, she should just use her skills to help other people towards happiness instead. A little bit quirky at times, Searching for Someday is a satisfying read, and I got to love both Kate and Slade, as well as Kennedy and Arilyn. I know for sure that this is a series I will continue to read – […]

Blogtour, Giveaway and Review: Vision of Shadows (Vision #1) – Vincent Morrone

Blogtour, Giveaway and Review: Vision of Shadows (Vision #1) – Vincent Morrone

*I received a free ARC of Vision of Shadow from Entranced Publishing in exchange of an honest review* Vision of Shadows is a different kind of YA paranormal romance, where the supernatural comes from two main families in Spirit, and the feud that has separated them and kept them  at each other’s throat for as long as anyone can remember. And I have to say I’m very happy to have started out 2014 with a read that is original, nicely paced with believable teens and adults. Yes, a big plus in Vision of Shadows is that there is family present, adults to help the teens, listen to them, and guide them! That is so sadly lacking in a lot of […]

Review: When the Rogue Returns (The Duke’s Men #2) – Sabrina Jeffries

Review: When the Rogue Returns (The Duke’s Men #2) – Sabrina Jeffries

*I received a free ARC of When the Rogue Returns from Pocket Books via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* When the Rogue Returns is a great historical romance novel, filled with action, suspense, some hot scenes and – YAY – no quivering virgins! Victor and Isa are both very stubborn, and extremely protective of their hearts, which is completely understandable as their stories unfold. The Duke’s Men series is becoming one of my favorite historical romance series, both because it is a little unconventional and because the characters are so well done I want to hang out with them for real! Victor really wants to work with the Duke’s Men, and he is afraid they won’t let him, […]

Review: The Wicked Confessions of Lady Cecelia Stanton – Viveka Portman

Review: The Wicked Confessions of Lady Cecelia Stanton – Viveka Portman

*I received a free ARC of The Wicked Confessions of Lady Cecelia Stanton from Harlequin Enterprises Australia via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* The Wicked Confessions  of Lady Cecelia Stanton is a deliciously scandalous tale, and it was even more so because it is set in regency England! This hot little number shows that both the lady and the lord have a knack for finding sexual pleasure where they can. Of course, Cecelia starts out as the perfect newly-wed virgin, and she actually thinks her new husband broke her the first time they had sex. And even if that makes me mean, I have to admit it did make me smile a little. The good thing for Cecelia, […]

Review: Layers Deep – Lacey Silks

Review: Layers Deep – Lacey Silks

*I received a free ARC of Layers Deep from MyLit Publishing via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* Layers Deep is a quick read, filled with many sexy scenes, as well as an entertaining story and fun characters. It is still a little bit difficult for me to review, because in some of the very moments when I should have stayed glued to my kindle, I was kind of jarred out of the moment. Allie is more or less analyzing every single touch Tristan puts on her body when they are going at it – and instead of getting me all fired up, it kind of distracted me. I kept thinking it couldn’t be all that great if she […]

Reveiw: Bonjour Cherie – Robin Thomas

Reveiw: Bonjour Cherie – Robin Thomas

*I received a free ARC of Bonjour Cherie from Harlequin Enterprises Australia via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* Bonjour Cherie is a contemporary romance set in Australia, about Beth, who is obsessed with all things French. She is taking French-classes while working at her local super-market so she can save up for her epic trip to France. She is also kind of obsessed with her French teacher, even after the very hunky Zach arrives in class one evening – and he seems to only have eyes for her. Sadly, I really didn’t like Beth at all! She is judgmental, a little arrogant, and really has no idea what to do with her life. I can get being in […]

Review: Long Simmering Spring (Star Harbor #3) – Elisabeth Barrett

Review: Long Simmering Spring (Star Harbor #3) – Elisabeth Barrett

*I received a free ARC of Long Simmering Spring from Random House Publishing / Loveswept via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* Long Simmering Spring has a very slow pace, which works perfect for the story within. Both Jule and Cole are afraid to start something new, they are content with working hard and playing little. Until they meet up in the park by chance, and that incredible chemistry between them flares up again. As always, Star Harbor is a great place for a visit, and the characters are so well done and multi-layered. For the first part of Long Simmering Spring, I really loved Cole and how he was slowly seducing Julie, but then, he did a complete […]
