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: Turning Back – J.A. Huss

Review: Turning Back – J.A. Huss

Turning Back was so filled with intrigue it was difficult to see which way was up and which way was down. Main feels for the beginning of Turning Back was kind of removed. I didn’t feel any of the characters, and even their smexy scenes seemed a little clinical to me. I didn’t really feel the hotness as I’d expected, and Bric acted like such an arse I wanted to skim his chapters, to tell you the truth. The story in Turning Back is well written, and the theme of second chance is one I absolutely love. It took a while for me to think that Rochelle actually deserved a second chance, though. Because the way she left Quin behind […]

Review: Taking Turns – J.A. Huss

Review: Taking Turns – J.A. Huss

Oh man! Taking Turns is dark. And addictive. And enticing. And twisted. And mysterious. And sexy. And so very complex and complicated. Taking Turns made me a little uneasy before I picked it up. I mean, yeah, Huss is one of my favorite authors, but her stuff can be extremely dark. And taboo. And a little uncomfortable. And pushing boundaries. And expanding my reading horizons pretty far off what I had imagined. So, reading about one girl and not two, but three guys. Yeah, definitely uneasy! And it was definitely a dirty story. But it was much more than that! It was about secrets. Really bad childhoods. Redemption, hope, respect, and possibly even love. It is quite difficult to review […]

#ReadIndie Review: Mr. Match – J.A. Huss

#ReadIndie Review: Mr. Match – J.A. Huss

Mr. Match is the biggest mindfuck I have ever read, and that is really saying something! On top of that, the romance and the characters were top notch, too! Mr. Match finally brought all the loose ends together, but those ends weren’t all neat and nice, oh no, Sir! They were messy. They were filled with lies. They took away some hope. They made people trust each other less. They took no prisoners. But they did clear up everything that needed to be cleared up. WOW what a ride the Mister series has been. Each of the first four books can be read in any order, but this fifth book should definitely be read last – it’s the only one […]

Review: Wicked Bond – Sawyer Bennett

Review: Wicked Bond – Sawyer Bennett

Wicked Bond is (finally) Bridger’s story – and man, he’s had a tough life! But then again, most of the characters in this series have a dark, dark past, but still cannot help but hope for a bright future. Bridger’s backstory might be the darkest and most difficult to read about in the whole series! Wicked Bond showed how he was bound – to his past and the abuse he had suffered. How that colored so many of his decisions and relationships in the present. Maggie’s story was bleak as well, especially with how she arrived at Bridger’s doorstep and the fight she still had in front of her at that moment. For Bridger to feel something real about a […]

Blogtour Review: Death Dancer – Tara Lain

Blogtour Review: Death Dancer – Tara Lain

Death Dancer had it all! A whirlwind romance, death, a mystery, a thrilling serial killer chase and true love. I enjoyed Death Dancer a great deal, from the characters that were both relatable and likeable, the dancing, the serial killer, the dancing… I found the chemistry between Andrew and Val to be off the charts from the first time they met, and I really enjoyed that they both wanted to see what could happen between them. While Andrew wasn’t out at work, he wasn’t exactly hiding, either, and that’s something I really liked! I have some friends who happen to be gay, and they are always telling me that they don’t get why they should explain to colleagues that they […]

Review: Wicked Ride – Sawyer Bennett

Review: Wicked Ride – Sawyer Bennett

Wicked Ride has the hotness the other Wicked Horse stories are built on, there is also some suspense, and of course, the Silo. As seen in the summary, Logan, one of the fantasy-makers at the Silo has a very strong longing when it comes to Auralie, the young woman whose virginity is for sale. Wicked Ride centers about the forbidden relationship between the two of them – stolen moments, heated exchanges only with looks across a crowded room. That part worked very well for me – however, I thought there were several things going on that could only happen because some of the characters really behaved out of character. Like, Auralie arrives at the club with Magnus, an older man, […]

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 […]

Blog tour Review: Spell Cat – Tara Lain

Blog tour Review: Spell Cat – Tara Lain

Spell Cat is a light-hearted romance that also deals with some heavier subjects like discrimination and living in hiding. I knew I’d enjoy Spell Cat as soon as I started reading it, because who doesn’t love a history professor who teaches a class on witch craft, and the hot, nerdy physics professor who seemingly falls for him at first sight? Plus, there is a familiar in cat shape, a mystery, and elders who are keeping the truth from the younger witches in New York… Killian and Blaine were great characters, and they weren’t the only ones, either. Spell Cat shows that discriminating based on whether or not people are human, and whether they fall in love with the opposite sex, […]
