Review: Five – J.A. Huss

Review: Five – J.A. Huss

Five blew my mind. It’s a story I’ve been waiting for since forever, and Huss definitely didn’t disappoint. Story: Princess Shrike was all ready to move on with her life. With no news from five in the past six years, she figured she should just do her thing. Date. Make new friends. Vacation in the Hamptons. Until her brother Ollie sends her a message saying she has to come home. Because Five is home. There was a lot of intrigue in Five. And a lot of heartache. And quite a bit of sadness. Of course, I also got Huss’ spectacular snark. And her hotness. Plus love – Five was also filled with beautiful love. Of course, there are also secret […]

Review: Elliott Redeemed – Scarlett Cole

Review: Elliott Redeemed – Scarlett Cole

Elliott Redeemed brought me the secrets Elliott kept, of his past, of how they affected his present, and what he did to deal with his darkness. Until he met Kendalee and Daniel, he was utterly lost. Story: There was a lot going on in Elliott Redeemed. Preload was back from tour, and more of the band members had moved out from their common house to be with their significant others. Elliott was back to having nightmares about his childhood, and I really wasn’t sure any good was going to happen for him. As he went to the Children’s Hospital to visit children with cancer, he stopped by at another room as well. That’s how he met Daniel. Who had set […]

#Review: Built – Jay Crownover

#Review: Built – Jay Crownover

Built was a very emotional story, and my heart broke for Sayer more than once. Zeb was there to pick up the pieces and help her build a new one, though. Built definitely got to me, because Zeb and Sayer – while seemingly so different from each other – were very similar when it came to the truly important things in their lives. Sayer, holding on to control of every aspect of her life tried her best to resist, but Zeb was too persistent. Zeb was also reliable, strong and loyal and so very lovable. The whole Saints of Denver series worked well for me, and Built was one of the reasons why. The overall story, the side characters, the […]

#Review: Leveled – Jay Crownover

#Review: Leveled – Jay Crownover

Leveled has me questioning why I haven’t read a Crownover series before now! I was enchanted, and she now has a new fan! Lando and Dom were both characters that made me feel, and their development through this story was truly well done. I read Leveled as part of my Can You Read a Series in a Month challenge, and I have read all the Saints of Denver series in June. I enjoyed the characters, the story, the secrets, and also the very strong sense of family and friendship. Dom and Lando both thought they weren’t deserving of love and a real relationship. Until there was no way for either of them to resist any longer. Lando lived with a […]

#ARC #Review: Anarchy Chained – J.A. Huss

Anarchy Chained is quite the finale to the SuperAlpha series! So much was going on, and the wicked twists and turns were out of this world – literally! Anarchy Chained was such a wicked trip! I am still trying to catch my breath, get my wits about me and make my heartbeat slow back down! Huss is a master at mind-fucks! She really, really is. And with this story, she took it even further than usual in my opinion. At the beginning, I was a bit lost, and I continued to feel like the story was a couple of paces ahead of me for most of the time, and it was truly thrilling to never guess a single thing that […]

Review: Jordan Reclaimed – Scarlett Cole

Review: Jordan Reclaimed – Scarlett Cole

Jordan Reclaimed was a tough and gritty read, with a horrific childhood, it’s a miracle Jordan managed to function at all – and when he met his ballet dancer, he started to be much more than the man who just went through the motions Jordan Reclaimed is set in the same universe as the Second Circle Tattoo series, and I had met Jordan before, even if he was mostly in the background. Jordan – as all the other guys in the band – had horrible childhoods, and it’s really quite amazing that they can function at all! One thing a lot of other bloggers know about me is that I love music! And I also have a soft spot for […]

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: The Darkest Link – Scarlett Cole

Review: The Darkest Link – Scarlett Cole

The Darkest Link is the perfect ending to Second Circle Tattoos, as most of the stories have now come full circle. I loved getting to know Lia better, and the romance and suspense were just as good as in the prior books. Lia was the only female tattoo artist at Second Circle Tattoos, and I was always so very curious about her! In The Darkest Link, I finally got her story, and it was definitely worth waiting for. She and Kenny met on the road, where Lia was stranded on her way to a tattoo convention, and he was just out cruising on his bike after a long day at work. Needless to say, there were both chemistry and sparks […]

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: Tempting Tempo – Michelle Mankin

Review: Tempting Tempo – Michelle Mankin

Tempting Tempo is a strong, fast-paced story in which Mel needs to reassess her choices, while Sager has to stand strong in the face of adversity. I’m a huge fan of The Tempest series, and I have to say that Sager and Mel’s story just might be my favorite! It deals with some very important subject matters, some that are dear to my heart, and important to talk about. Body image and eating disorders – even when it comes to elite sports people, can be a big problem. And not being able to reign in a diet and have things escalate can happen much faster than most of us on the outside can ever understand. Add in a sexy rocker, […]
