Review: Holiday Wishes – Jill Shalvis

Review: Holiday Wishes – Jill Shalvis

Holiday Wishes was a sweet, tender novella in one of my favorite Shalvis series, and I loved to see this more mature side of Sean. Story: While Holiday Wishes is a quite short story, the feel of the Heartbreaker Bay gang is very much present. The group of friends and family are away for a weekend of bachelor and bachelorette party for Pru and Finn. All organized by Sean, to the amazement of everyone. He has planned everything down to the smallest detail. Apart from the fact that his very first girlfriend, the one he let get away, is the innkeeper. The easy banter between the characters, as well as their strong ties always makes Heartbreaker Bay the place to […]

Review: Sure Thing – Jana Aston

Review: Sure Thing – Jana Aston

Sure Thing made me laugh out loud more than once, and it also made me swoon. The mix of humour and steaminess was perfectly balanced! Story: Violet steps in for her identical twin, Daisy, for a historical tour at the tour company where she works. At the hotel bar the first evening, Violet decides to try some seducing advice on the sexy stranger across the bar. After reading about a trick of  three seconds of eye-contact, then a smile, she wants to see if it works. And boy, does it work. Soon after, she receives a new drink, and the stranger comes to sit with her. Aston is very good at romcom, she mixes humour and hotness seamlessly, and it […]

Review: Hello Again – Brenda Novak

Review: Hello Again – Brenda Novak

Hello Again was so eery, I felt the suspense during the whole story, and it just seems impossible to me that Evelyn will make it through the end. There is more than one enemy now, and my goodness, the ending left me speechless and breathless. Story: The suspense and the psychological thriller aspects were even stronger in Hello Again. Evelyn has more than one person she needs to be wary of, and her newest inmate is so smart and vengeful. He’s at least as scary as Justin. Several things happen to bring more heat to Justin’s revenge, and on top of that, there are murders that seem different from his MO, but could still be by him. Amarok and Evelyn’s […]

Review: Mystery Man – Kristen Ashley

Review: Mystery Man – Kristen Ashley

Mystery Man is classic KA! Very, very alpha male, lots of humour, love, suspense and squishy heart on my part… Story: There is so much going on in Mystery Man, some of it good, some of it bad, some of it ugly – all of it pretty amazing. Once I got over Hawk’s bossiness and Gwen’s waffling, I fell in love with them both. And as always, Ashley brought out the big guns when it comes to turns of phrases that made my heart turn over! Gwen’s sister was so much trouble, and she didn’t seem to care that she put her family in danger with her antics. Good thing that Gwen was on a lot of hot, alpha-men’s radar. And they […]

Review: Archangel’s Viper – Nalini Singh

Review: Archangel’s Viper – Nalini Singh

Archangel’s Viper was a whirlwind of plot, action and feels! Fast paced, with a lot at stake, I was taken for a trip I won’t soon forget. Story: Archangel’s Viper is about Holly and Venom, and the attraction between them. It’s also about the voice Holly hears in her mind, and how she’s grown extremely strong and fast in a short time. She needs discipline, which Venom has in spades. But she needs more than being a fighter, too. Venom and Holly go on a dangerous trip to figure out what is happening to her, and not one, but two Archangels are needed to deal with some of the things that come up on that trip. I loved getting to […]

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: Love in Transit – Jana Aston et al

Review: Love in Transit – Jana Aston et al

There are six quite long novellas included in Love in Transit, and apart from the same blurb, the stories are very different. Stories: I really enjoyed most of the stories, and I found it funny that they were so different – it is really proof that a summary doesn’t really mean much. Love in Transit is not only six different stories, they are also written by six different authors. I found the stories to be enticing, with good character development and some of them were also very funny. I have to admit that Time Square by Jana Aston was my favorite. She has a way to blend romance and comedy to perfection, and I laughed out loud more than once. […]

Review: Romancing the Rogue – Erica Ridley

Review: Wicked Bite – Rebecca Zanetti

Review: Wicked Bite – Rebecca Zanetti

Wicked Bite packed an even bigger punch than the four prior books in the Realm Enforcers series! Action, fights and betrayal that made my head spin. Story: I was happy to get a book where Nessa and Bear were the main characters, but I hadn’t really counted on Nessa actually going undercover. She seemed young and a bit inexperienced in the prior book, but she was very far from it. Bear was still suffering from changing too many times in the prior story, and it appeared as if his life might be in danger. There chemistry between Nessa and Bear was very strong. But neither of them really trusted the other. Wicked Bite involved a lot of the plot that […]

Review: The Captain’s Bluestocking Mistress – Erica Ridley

Review: The Captain’s Bluestocking Mistress – Erica Ridley

The Captain’s Bluestocking Mistress was a fun read, where the heroine used everything she could to try to seduce the good captain… who would do anything in his power not to ruin her Story: I don’t even know where to start! I loved how Jane knew what she wanted, and that she did what she could to get it! At the perils of her being eligible for marriage, even. The Captain’s Bluestocking Mistress brought both romance and humor, and a very unconventional heroine I loved to get to know. And I can’t forget that darned cat, who both made things more difficult for Jane, and at times somehow better. Ridley’s Dukes of War series is so good, the heroines are […]
