Review: Tight Quarters (Strangers on a Train) – Samantha Hunter

Tight Quarters is the fourth story I have read in the Strangers on a Train series by different authors. It is quite different from the other books in this series, because the characters, Reid and Brenna, both have something difficult to deal with. Brenna has difficulties just boarding the train, and when Reid follows her all the way to her berth, she almost flips out. She uses her key to open the door, then close it behind her. When Reid then proceeds to open the door with his own key, she hides in a corner, and has no idea what to do. For just one person, the berth has more than enough room, but put a bulky ex-cop in there […]

Review: All He Ever Desired (The Kowalskis #5) – Shannon Stacey

All He Ever Desired is about a second chance in love. Is it even possible? Ryan Kowalski sure doesn’t think so, and when he comes back to Withford after a long absence, he does the best he can to avoid Lauren, the woman he has loved since high-school. They meet on his first day back, however, as their paths cross in his soon-to-be sister-in-law’s diner.

Review: Big Boy (Strangers on a Train) – Ruthie Knox

Big Boy is a fun and very hot story about Amanda, and the very little time she has to actually go out on a date. Not at all desperate to find a special someone in her life, she does realize that she needs more than just her job and being a mother to Josh, though, and when she signs up with a dating service, little does she know what her mysterious man has in store for her. She has as much fun getting her costume ready as she has actually meeting with the mystery man himself. Getting ready with clothes from another era, feeling sexy and herself, but not herself brings some spice and fun back into Mandy’s life. And […]

Review: This Girl (Slammed #3) – Colleen Hoover

*I received a free ARC of This Girl form Atria via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* This Girl is such a wonderful book I’m almost at a loss for words! The third book in the Slammed trilogy continues after the last events in Point of Retreat, but there are some flashbacks when Will tells Lake about his feelings during the tumultuous start of their relationship. It is so beautiful to see how Will was feeling, and what he was thinking, from the first time he saw Lake arrive across the street, to much later in the story. I have to admit I was a little scared to read this book – how in the world could it live […]

Review: Impulse (Mageri #3) – Dannika Dark

Review: Impulse (Mageri #3) – Dannika Dark

Impulse is a very apt name for the third book in the Mageri series! We get to know more about Silver, her birth, her childhood, and why she is sometimes not doing what her impulse is telling her to do! We also get to know a lot more about Justus and his own brand of impulse control. It was amazing to get more back-story on Justus, it explains so much about the way he treats Silver, and also the way he treats the women he’s with. There is also a lot of action in Impulse, both with fights and with the budding romantic relationship between Logan and Silver. I sure have a soft spot for Logan! I know I would […]
