Review: Baiting the Boss – Coleen Kwan

Review: Baiting the Boss – Coleen Kwan

*I received a free ARC of Baiting the Boss from Entangled Publishing via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* Baiting the Boss is a quick, sweet and very hot read! Grace is the young woman who works very hard, has specific goals and does what needs to be done to achieve them. Jack has been away from Sydney for three years, ever since his wife died in a car accident. Living on a secluded island, he is not exactly happy to see Grace arrive by boat, with demands from his grand father for him to come home and become CEO of the family company. The chemistry between Grace and Jack can be felt from the start of Baiting the […]

Review: Dirty Minds – T. A. Williams

Review: Dirty Minds – T. A. Williams

*I received a free ARC of Dirty Minds from Harlequin UK Limited / Carina UK via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review.* Dirty Minds is a very funny story about a professor and writer, Tom, who is working through the different stages of grief after his wife died two years ago. He has written a medieval story that was pretty bleak and violent, and his therapist suggests that he finds something a little lighter and more fluffy to concentrate on for his next book. He has the idea that because Fifty Shades of Grey has so much success, he should write something erotic, and possible have it in a historical setting. But he is sure he needs to get […]

Review: The Cowboy Imports a Bride (The Cowboys of Chance Creek #3) – Cora Seton

Review: The Cowboy Imports a Bride (The Cowboys of Chance Creek #3) – Cora Seton

*I received a free ARC of The Cowboy Imports a Bride from One Acre Press via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* The Cowboy Imports a Bride is in the same vein as The Cowboy’s E-mail Order Bride, it’s hot, fun and has great descriptions of friendship as well as more romantic relationships. I loved getting to know Rob and Morgan, and the fact that even if they are different on many levels, they have struggled with feeling out of place during their whole lives as well. I felt especially sad when reading about Morgan – neither of her parents wanted her; they even hid her from their ‘real’ families and she was raised by her grandparents. I can’t […]

Review: Snowbound with the CEO – Shannon Stacey

Review: Snowbound with the CEO – Shannon Stacey

*I received a free ARC of Snowbound with the CEO from Carina Press via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* Snowbound with the CEO is a short but sweet romance, set between the CEO and his executive assistant. They have been lusting for each other for a long time, but neither of them wants to make a go for it, afraid things will become awkward at work if they do. Then, they are in New Hampshire for a very important meeting, but the meeting never happens. Because of the heavy snowfall, the client is stuck in Boston, an Adrian and Rachel are stuck in New Hampshire – all alone, with not much to do, apart from maybe acting out […]

Review: Take Me Home for Christmas (Whiskey Creek #5) – Brenda Novak

Review: Take Me Home for Christmas (Whiskey Creek #5) – Brenda Novak

*I received a free ARC of Take Me Home for Christmas from Harlequin MIRA via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review.* Take Me Home for Christmas is yet another nicely done story in the Whiskey Creek series. Approaching Christmas, everything that can go wrong in Sophia’s life does indeed go wrong. On a yacht with her husband, Skip, and their daughter Lexi, off the coast of Rio to celebrate their 13th wedding anniversary, Skip disappears in thin air.

Review: Getting Rowdy (Love Undercover #3) – Lori Foster

Review: Getting Rowdy (Love Undercover #3) – Lori Foster

*I received a free ARC of Getting Rowdy from Harlequin via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review.* Getting Rowdy is a sinfully delicious romantic mystery/suspense that I devoured in one day! Avery is a really good female character and Rowdy is smoking hot, kind of a womanizer but so protective of the people he cares about it’s impossible not to love him. At the beginning, I really didn’t think there was going to be much of a future for Avery and Rowdy, because they are so different. For Rowdy, a good night means trying to bed Avery, and when she refuses, he finds a replacement – for one night only. For Avery, a good night means having enough work, […]

Review: Targeted (Deadly Ops #1) – Katie Reus

Review: Targeted (Deadly Ops #1) – Katie Reus

*I received a free ARC of Targeted from Penguin Group Berkley via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* Targeted is an extremely fast-paced romantic thriller, with awesome characters, an exciting plot and some very hot and steamy scenes as well. Sophie and Jack has a lot of things working against them, especially that little detail from Jack’s past, the one where his name wasn’t Jack, and he was Sophie’s first boyfriend. And the only boy she’d ever loved. When Jack is sent to Miami to find out more about a medical company that seems to be involved with drug and arms trafficking, he doesn’t want to go at first, because he feels that seeing Sophie again is the biggest […]

Review: The Next Best Thing – Kristan Higgins

Review: The Next Best Thing – Kristan Higgins

*I received a free ARC of The Next Best Thing from Harlequin HQN via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* The Next Best Thing is the story about Lucy, the young widow and Ethan, her brother-in-law. Yeah, that right there is a little weird to me, but not so much that I couldn’t overlook it. Ethan is a very decent character, and Lucy has been a widow for a long time. Also, she got to know Ethan before she met Jimmy. There were some other things I had trouble with, though, so I didn’t enjoy The Next Best Thing as much as I thought I would when I read the blurb and requested the ARC. In some ways, it […]

Review: Friends to Lovers (Aisle Bound #3) – Christi Barth

Review: Friends to Lovers (Aisle Bound #3) – Christi Barth

*I received a free eARC of Friends to Lovers from Carina Press via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* Friends to Lovers is the kind of love story I love to read, two people are best friends, hang out with each other all the time, get along, have the same interests and then… there is more feelings than they thought they had for each other. Gib and Daphne have been friends for several years, and for all that time, Daphne has hidden her true feelings for Gib, because he’s truly not the kind of guy who’d ever have a real relationship with a woman. He’s more the love them and leave them kind of man, and that’s OK since […]

Review: Frost Burned (Mercy Thompson #7) – Patricia Briggs

Review: Frost Burned (Mercy Thompson #7) – Patricia Briggs

Frost Burned was keeping some other books company on my kindle for quite a while before I sat down to read about one of  my favorite heroines – coyote Mercy Thompson, married to the alpha of the werewolves. It’s one of the series I like to say I savor, I don’t want to rush through any of the books in the Mercy Thompson series, and I want to be able to read it when I feel ready for some hot weres and strong-willed, kick-ass Mercy! There certainly is a lot of action in Frost Burned, and Mercy hardly has time to breathe, so forget about eating or sleeping completely. Through all the things she was put through, Mercy stayed true […]
