Review: Rock F*ck Club – Michelle Mankin

Review: Rock F*ck Club – Michelle Mankin

Rock F*ck Club is a hot little number, where a woman takes back control and goes on a quest of rock stars to take back power and control. Rock F*ck Club started with Raven seeing something that can’t be unseen – her rockstar boyfriend with another girl. Totally doing it, and then asking her to join in so as to not be a bore. At first, she was devastated, but then she decided that she really should live things up and be less boring. But only on her own terms, not someone else’s. Strong, empowered women are often seen as bullies, sluts, ‘manly’, noisy… Rock F*ck Club managed to take the slut part out of the equation, even as Raven […]

Review: Provocative – Lisa Renee Jones

Review: Provocative – Lisa Renee Jones

Provocative definitely brought its share of provocation, but it also delved deeper than that, to a level where truths were uncovered, and where the suspicions made trust harder than it needed to be… Provocative wasn’t just addictive, it was consuming, and utterly impossible to put down. From start to finish, I was so engrossed in Faith and Nick, and the intricate way their lives were intertwined – even before they met for the first time. Intriguing. Dark. Hopeful. Enticing. The complex characters definitely moved the story of Provocative forward, Nick and Faith each having their chapters where they shared their hopes, their doubts, their guilt and their trust issues. The dual points of view moved the story forward at a […]

Review: Kaleidoscope – Kristen Ashley

Review: Kaleidoscope – Kristen Ashley

Kaleidoscope had some beautiful metaphors, but Emme and Deck didn’t wow me as much as other Colorado Mountain couples have. The main thing that made Kaleidoscope less enjoyable to me was that in many ways, Emme was just too high strung and high maintenance for me. I did get why at the very end, but by that time, I didn’t care that much anymore. I totally loved Deck, though, and the connections he had both with the rest of the Colorado Mountain men, and with the Rock Chick guys. One thing I love with Kristen Ashley is the strong sense of community, and that was present in Kaleidoscope as well. So was both the incredible mystery, the suspense, and the […]

Review: Jagged – Kristen Ashley

Review: Jagged – Kristen Ashley

The romance and the closeness in Jagged hit me right in the chest – it was beautiful! One of the things I loved the most about Jagged was the fact that Ham’s voice got jagged in certain situations. And I have to say, my feels with this story were completely off the charts. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to thank Brandee enough for introducing me to Kristen Ashley’s books! The characters are grown-ups, which is something I find refreshing in romance, and while there was still a bit of drama, the action, the suspense, and the relationships were all easy to relate to, and I found I had a lot of love for the characters as they went […]

Review: On Second Thought – Kristan Higgins

Review: On Second Thought – Kristan Higgins

On Second Thought is one of the most tender and hopeful stories I have read. It’s character-driven by women of incredible strength. Ainsley and Kate become close as sisters after they both ended up single once more, and On Second Thought follows them both in the aftermath of the shock they received. Kate tragically and unexpectedly became a widow after only four months of marriage. And soon after, Ainsley’s live-in boyfriend of eleven years left her start over and find himself again. I just felt so much tenderness while I read their story, and I loved being inside their head, understanding their vulnerabilities and their wants and needs. Kate had gotten over searching for a husband at thirty-eight years old, […]

Review: Abduction – Cynthia Eden

Review: Abduction – Cynthia Eden

Abduction is a tight suspense thriller with romance and a mysterious stalker, where Jill and Hayden just want to start over again, but so does the abductor. The suspense part of Abduction was really well done, because little by little, we learned about how Jill was abducted as a child, and Hayden saved her… This has been haunting both of them ever since, Jill so much so that she started working for the FBI finding missing children. Hayden had been seen as the main thug in Hope until he saved Jill that day, and it changed his life. But he still let her go once they were adults, as he didn’t think he was good enough for her. I think […]

Review: Hard Justice – Lori Foster

Review: Hard Justice – Lori Foster

Hard Justice had all the romance, suspense, friendship, hotness and action I have come to love in Foster’s novels! Both Justice and Fallon were characters I enjoyed from when I first met them in Hard Justice. Fallon was a heroine who could have been impossible to enjoy or relate to, but even with her sheltered life and the tragedy in her past, she was a positive, strong character I loved more with each page. Justice wasn’t an unknown to me, as he first showed up in the Ultimate series, and I have to say that he really shone in his role as both bodyguard and romantic lead. The suspense in Hard Justice kept me guessing, and I really enjoyed that […]

Review: What it Takes – Shannon Stacey

Review: What it Takes – Shannon Stacey

What it Takes is a very back throw-back to the whole Kowalski series, and it was nice to see how all the cousins are holding up after all this time, while also meeting a brand-new couple on the camping ground. Laney really needed a change after living in a love-less marriage for ten years during which she had lost herself. What it Takes was mostly about her finding herself again, understanding her own wants and needs. Laney thought she needed to be on her own to figure out what to do with the rest of her life, and when she first met Ben, she was doing her very best to ignore the strong chemistry between them. As always, Stacey brings people […]

Audioreview: Wasted Lust – JA Huss

Audioreview: Wasted Lust – JA Huss

Wasted Lust was one of my favorite Company / Rook & Ronin stories, both because I had been so curious about Sasha, and because anything that happens in this universe is bound to be amazing… Listening to a favorite book enhances the experience in many ways, and Wasted Lust is proof of that! The narrators did an amazing job, and they managed to bring my distaste for Jax forward in the beginning of the story. There is one male and one female narrator, so that Sasha’s chapters are narrated by the woman and Jax’ chapters by the man. This worked very well, and I was so completely immersed in the story I sometimes didn’t want to leave my car and […]

Blogtour Review: Cowboys Don’t Ride Unicorns – Tara Lain

Blogtour Review: Cowboys Don’t Ride Unicorns – Tara Lain

Cowboys Don’t Ride Unicorns tackles quite a few pre-conceptions, and it did so with amazing characters! I think Danny and Laurie are my favorites by Lain *sighs* I’m still swooning, they’re so cute! I was such a happy reader with Cowboys Don’t Ride Unicorns. It started with Danny not only winning a bull-rider rodeo, but also saving another bull-rider’s life. I was very happy to see Rand and Kai as well as the kids again, too. I met those characters in Cowboys Don’t Come Out, the first story in this amazing series. Danny was my kind of hero, because while he is tough on the outside, he is all lovely and sensitive on the inside. He wasn’t afraid to show […]
