Review: About That Kiss – Jill Shalvis

Review: About That Kiss – Jill Shalvis

About That Kiss brought out the feels. You know how it is when you pick up a book, and it feels like you’re hanging out with your best friends? Living through their struggles and their good times right there with them? Shalvis does that to me. With every book she writes – no matter if there are characters I’ve already met or if they are completely new to me. Story: About That Kiss has a very slow-burning romance, all the friendships, and a very good mystery. I loved getting to know Joe Malone better, and Kylie was the perfect match for him. With her unconventional profession as a wood worker, she managed to see through his tough exterior and find […]

Review: Total Exposure – JA Huss

Review: Total Exposure – JA Huss

Total Exposure takes mind-games to another level. Huss is a master at mind-games in her books, but here, she upped the ante times n. And I just couldn’t stop reading. Flipping the pages. Wanting to know how Evangeline would react. What Ixion would do next. How this could ever end well. Story: I’m not even sure how to put Total Exposure into a genre, it is romance, for sure. But it is also has a bit of suspense – just not the usual kind. There is no lurking danger, there are no crimes, but still – between Ixion and Evangeline, there is some kind of mystery anyway. Total Exposure is set in the same universe as Huss’ The Turning series, […]

Review: Keep Her Safe – K.A. Tucker

Review: Keep Her Safe – K.A. Tucker

Watch out, everybody! Romantic suspense has a new queen, Tucker totally nailed it with Keep Her Safe. There are ugly secrets, dirty cops, a beautiful love story, and some incredibly difficult decisions to make. Story: Keep Her Safe is an excellent romantic suspense, and I have to say Tucker nailed this new writing adventure! I found the mystery part extremely well done, and the layers upon layers of deceit made me wonder about what had truly happened. It also took me a very long time to finally figure out who was the main culprit that made the evil ball start rolling. The pace was fast enough to make me feel like the story moved along nicely, and the way the […]

Review: Wicked Choice – Sawyer Bennett

Review: Wicked Choice – Sawyer Bennett

Wicked Choice is much more than an erotic romance, there are some important choices the characters have to make. And there is an important theme about how women are often judged much more harshly than men for their choices. Story: Wicked Choice does partly evolve inside the Wicked Horse, but it’s not the most important place or theme of the story. Rachel’s unplanned pregnancy, and the fears she feels about that is the focal point of the story, and I found the way this unfolded to be very realistic. Not all women can imagine being a mother, and that is all fine and good. Rachel kind of did want to be a mother, though, but she was afraid of all […]

Review: Nikan Rebuilt – Scarlett Cole

Review: Nikan Rebuilt – Scarlett Cole

Nikan Rebuilt brought out all the feels. I cried a little. And I laughed quite a lot. I swooned more than once, too. Welcome to my stop on the Nikan Rebuilt review tour – there is a giveaway, my review, and an excerpt from this fantastic story.

Nikan Rebuilt definitely proved that to me, as Nikan was still dreaming of Jenny, years after their split. Years after not even knowing where in the world she might be. Until a day when […]

Review: Man Hands – Sarina Bowen and Tanya Eby

Review: Man Hands – Sarina Bowen and Tanya Eby

Man Hands brought me from laughing out loud to all hot and bothered in a New York second! (un)Conventionally Quick: Man Hands is a hilarious tale of two jilted people who find each other in a completely unexpected way. It’s a erotic rom-com (yeah, not sure that genre exists, but it sure does fit!) that made me laugh out loud, while feeling all hot and bothered at the same time. I loved both Brynn and Tom. They were hilarious in their own way, and together, they became dynamite! The friendship between Brynn and her best friends made me miss my own friends who don’t live close by. And the inner musings Tom had made me bark with laughter. I just […]

Review: End Game – Lisa Renee Jones

Review: End Game – Lisa Renee Jones

End Game brought a lot of pain to some of the characters, with the aftermath of the incredible cliffhanger in Bad Deeds… I loved the character growth in End Game, the depth this brought to various relationships, and the tension that was so thick it could be cut with a butcher knife. The suspense was breath-taking, and I had trouble sitting still while reading. The emotional pain the characters felt was tangible, and I had no idea how they would get through the incredibly difficult time they were facing. End Game took care of many loose ends, but not all. And there might be a story about one of the side characters from Dirty Money in the future. I, for […]

Audio Review: Becoming Dragon – Eve Langlais

Audio Review: Becoming Dragon – Eve Langlais

Becoming Dragon was a delightful tale, filled with humor, action, steam and more. The narration was well done, and I was so happy to have this to listen to on my commute to and from work. Story: Becoming Dragon is about… you guessed it – dragons! And it’s by Eve Langlais, so I knew I was in for some good laughs. Plus steamy romance, and I also got a rather down to earth and doubting hero. Brandon had been experimented on, and with his DNA sliced, he was in a weird hybrid form that made him think of himself as a monster. Aimi, however, did not find him to be monstrous at all. Quite the opposite, which made for some […]

Audio Review: The Baller – Vi Keeland

Audio Review: The Baller – Vi Keeland

The Baller was a hot story – the sports reporter and the professional football player started off on the wrong foot – but once they got it right, they got it good! Story: Delilah was my kind of character! In The Baller, she was a sports journalist, and she covered football. She thought she was incapable of loving anyone, because of her past, but Brody made her so mad she knew her emotions worked, at least. The first time Brody and Delilah met, she was all ready to interview him. After a game, in the locker room, and to see what she was made of, he dropped his towel. Right before she went on air. Brody was the king of […]

Audio Review: The Negotiator – Avery Flynn

Audio Review: The Negotiator – Avery Flynn

The Negotiator kept me company with laughter and steam on my way to and from work. Fun, hot and feisty, it kept things light. Story: The Negotiator helped me laugh while commuting – which is not that frequent an occurrence really. I leave the house before it’s light out, and arrive very early at work to prepare things. Getting prepared with Sawyer and Clover made everything lighter. Because his mom was always setting him up with socialites, Sawyer and his brother came up with the idea to hire a buffer. One person to keep his mom – and the bridezillas to be – at arm’s length. Only, Sawyer’s brother made sure a fun woman was the most likely candidate. One […]
