Review: Seduced – Helena Newbury

Review: Seduced – Helena Newbury

Seduced is a hot little number, with a geeky CIA agent and a charismatic but dangerous Russian arms-dealer. My Seduced review: Thanks to her great knowledge of Russian, Arianna was hired by the CIA straight out of college, and now she spends her days listening to bugged phone conversations made by various criminals that are in the CIA’s sight. Seduced did seduce me, Arianna is the geeky, quiet character who really wants more in life. Still struggling with flash-backs and nightmares after an accident two years prior, she lives with one of her co-workers, and spends all her time at work, or cooking. Luka is a dangerous Russian arms-dealer, and most of his phone conversations are crude phone sex with […]

Review: Meet Me in the Dark – J.A. Huss

Review: Meet Me in the Dark – J.A. Huss

Dark is only the beginning when it comes to Meet me in the Dark! Merc is even more twisted that I thought he was, and Sydney is so confused, broken and out of it she amazed me when she was able to show me she truly did have a backbone after all. My Meet Me in the Dark review: Book hangover V2.0 is what Meet Me in the Dark has given me! There are just so many things happening, and the twists and turns and psychological war Merc has going with Sydney is so above anything I’ve ever read I’m still reeling. And my feels, my poor, poor feels! From disgust to happiness, fear to elation, hope to desolation – […]

Review: The Stranger You Seek – Amanda Kyle Williams

Review: The Stranger You Seek – Amanda Kyle Williams

The Stranger You Seek is a very eerie, creepy, stalkerish kind of mystery, in which Keye Street gets through so many twists and turns it was impossible to figure out who the killer was. My The Stranger You Seek review: Keye Street is the kind of heroine I wish there were more of! She is pretty flawed, and she makes no qualms about it! She’s also very smart, has a sarcastic sense of humor and is fiercely loyal. Adopted when she was a little girl, she grew up being the only Asian looking child in her white Atlanta neighbourhood, and her brother was the only black kid there. Diversity is very well done in The Stranger You Seek, but it’s […]

Review: Total Surrender – Rebecca Zanetti

Review: Total Surrender – Rebecca Zanetti

Oh my goodness, this final installment in the Sin Brothers series was definitely action packed! And fast paced. Total Surrender also had a little romance and a lot of different story-lines running alongside the main plot. My Total Surrender review: Can I start by squeeing a little with happiness because I finally got Jory’s story? Yes? *squee* Total Surrender truly showed me that each and every one of the brothers have an inner strength that is just as strong as their physical strength. The love and loyalty that have bound them together through a horrific childhood is even stronger now that they’re all adults, and Jory is the brother who has been missing in order to make the other feel complete […]

Review: Cinder – Marissa Meyer

Review: Cinder – Marissa Meyer

Cinder was up for a slow start, but after a while, things were happening more quickly, and while I was able to guess pretty early on who exactly Cinder was, I was still amazed at the way the story unfolded. My Cinder review: Cinder is part cyborg, and her adoptive mother treats her as a servant, so much so that all the money Cinder earns is deposited into Adri’s account rather than Cinder’s. As a gifted mechanic, with a stall at the market, she meets Crown Prince Kai when he needs help to repair his android. Meeting Kai is like a dream to her, but she knows he would be disgusted if he knew she was a cyborg, so rather […]

Review: Archangel’s Legion – Nalini Singh

Review: Archangel’s Legion – Nalini Singh

In Archangel’s Legion, the love between Raphael and Elena became an epiphany! I knew there was love with them, but here, that love was just so strong and beautiful it made the story epic in a very different way. My Archangel’s Legion review: Between the undeniable love and respect between Elena and Raphael, and all the troubles bestowed upon them, Archangel’s Legion was a thrilling read from start to finish. Thrilling both because of the incredible chemistry between the main characters, and because of the fights they had to engage in on many different levels. The story is fast paced, and all my favorite characters from the Guild Hunter series – both those I love and those I love to […]

Review: Three, Two, One – J.A. Huss

Review: Three, Two, One – J.A. Huss

Three, Two, One has to be one of the most twisted, hot and complex stories I have ever read! Huss completely outdid herself – again! My Three, Two, One review: When I was selected to receive an ARC of Three, Two, One I actually did a happy-dance, and when the book arrived on my kindle on Saturday morning, I twirled – with my kindle in my hands like a baby. Twisted doesn’t even begin to describe the relationships, the storyline, the characters and the plot in this masterpiece. And a masterpiece, it is. Very dark, uncomfortable at times, extremely hot other times, and with a relationship that is anything but conventional. The suspense is well done, and the story is […]

Review: Blind Faith – Rebecca Zanetti

Review: Blind Faith – Rebecca Zanetti

Suspense, romance, a sense of betrayal and maybe an ultimate liberation  – all of these ingredients made Blind Faith an exciting read! My Blind Faith review: The amazing Sin-brothers are sexy. loyal, strong and head-strong. They are also able to kill any target, highly intelligent, and they still have hope for the future even when things seem extremely bleak. Blind Faith follows Nate, and I was very curious about him after reading, and loving, Sweet Revenge. I have found a new love for romantic suspense stories, and Rebecca Zanetti is able to help me when I crave a story filled with action but where there is some romance as well. On top of the writing that drew me in from […]

Review: Under His Protection – Katie Reus

Review: Under His Protection – Katie Reus

  Deliciously hot, Under His Protection is a quick read, with some really good characters, suspense and romance. My Under His Protection review: Even if Under His Protection is the 9th book in the Red Stone Securities series, it can be read as a stand-alone, it will not take anything away from either the story, the romance or the suspense for readers who are not familiar with the series already. I love how well both the romance and the suspense parts were done, and even if there are only 175 pages, I got to know both Ivan and Julieta well. It was obvious that Julieta has a lot of good friends, as well as a loving family. However, for a […]

Review: Innocent Prey – Maggie Shayne

Review: Innocent Prey – Maggie Shayne

  Another exciting, fast-paced and awesome installment in the Brown and DeLuca series – with a very nice side-dish of romance. My Innocent Prey review: WOW, let me just gather my thoughts a little bit, because Innocent Prey really took me for quite a ride! Rachel is getting more in tune with both her own self-help philosophy and her inner bitch, and that was a lot of fun to read about. She also managed to get involved in yet another investigation, while also having a little time to hang out with Mason outside of work as well. One of the things I really enjoyed about the mystery in Innocent Prey was the hush-hush around Stevie’s disappearance, plus the fact that […]
