Review: Indecent Exposure – Tessa Bailey

Review: Indecent Exposure – Tessa Bailey

Indecent Exposure is a whirlwind romance between a broken Jack and a strong Katie. I loved how they both helped each other heal, and deal with life’s difficulties in a healthy way. Story: Indecent Exposure follows Jack, whom I met in Disorderly Conduct, and Katie. Their hot romance is so fast it swept me off my feet. I loved how they were so in tune to each other from when they first met. And how they both wanted to be more because of their meeting. Characters: Jack is a big flirt, drinking too much alcohol, and hiding a lot of hurt. Even his best friends don’t know everything about him. When his excessive drinking starts to truly hurt those he […]

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: Disorderly Conduct – Tessa Bailey

Review: Disorderly Conduct – Tessa Bailey

Disorderly Conduct was a fun read, sweet romance, with protagonists who were sure they didn’t want a real relationship. (un)conventionally short: Charlie and Ever both thought they’d be better off without a serious relationship. Until Charlie started thinking differently. Disorderly Conduct is quite humorous, and there is more to the story than meets the eyes at the beginning. Both Charlie and Ever think love is more a complication than anything else. Thus, the no-strings relationship they agree to from the start. The fact that the relationship seemed to be doomed at first made it even sweeter when it started to develop into something deeper. I loved the shenanigans Charlie entered to make sure Ever wouldn’t start dating someone who wasn’t […]

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 : Why Do Dukes Fall in Love – Megan Frampton

Review : Why Do Dukes Fall in Love – Megan Frampton

Why Do Dukes Fall in Love was an absolute delight. It was impossible to not fall head-first in love with Mrs. Chelsam and His Grace! They were awesome, I loved their tongue-in-cheek humor, their loyalty, their intelligence and their steamy romance! Story: A duke who hires a female secretary is unconventional to say the least, and I love unconventional historical romances. Why Do Dukes Fall in Love was a fun story, with some intrigue and suspense, and a lot of slow, hot romance. I loved that a capable woman got a chance to take care of herself and her daughter – and still have some love in her life. Characters: Edwina was a widow, left with her young daughter, and […]

Review: Wildfire – Ilona Andrews

Review: Wildfire – Ilona Andrews

Wildfire took me on a journey that was extremely fast-paced, filled with action, betrayal, romance, intrigue and a complicated plot. So well done! What else can I say about Wildfire? The character development is awesome. The universe is completely set up. I love Rogan. I also love Nevada. And Nevada’s family. I love all the magic! And the intrigue. As well as the fight scenes. And the action, too. Now this sounds like a poem. But I’m no poet, am I? Wildfire is fast-paced. And it’s so well done! The storyline attractive, and I just want more. Small secrets were revealed. Some big ones as well. And review still sounds like a poem. So I’ll just go with it, then. […]

Review: White Hot – Ilona Andrews

Review: White Hot – Ilona Andrews

White Hot brought some more explanations about the Hidden Legacy universe, and I got to know Nevada, Rogan, and the other characters better. The pace is fast, and there is so much going on. I’m in a magic-induced nirvana right now. I don’t know how the Andrews do it, but White Hot was actually even better than Burn for Me! The character development was awesome, and so was the overall storyline, with parts continuing from the last books, and many new happenings as well. The political intrigue was still going on, and the magic used to undermine the different houses was amazing. Not going to say too much about White Hot, as I don’t want to spoil anything – just […]

Review: Burn for Me – Ilona Andrews

Review: Burn for Me – Ilona Andrews

Oh my goodness! Rogan and Nevada are both characters I became slightly obsessed with at the beginning of Burn for Me, and now, I just know that I have to figure out what is up next. Ilona Andrews did it again – a complete winner! There is something special with stories including magic. When those stories are written by Ilona Andrews, there is even more that is special about them! Burn for Me is a prime example of their excellent writing, world building, character development, story arc, plot and general awesomeness. I don’t really know what more to say than that – it was as close to perfection as the written word can possibly be. Rogan and Nevada are very […]

Review: Accidentally on Purpose – Jill Shalvis

Review: Accidentally on Purpose – Jill Shalvis

Accidentally on Purpose continues in the same vein as the prior Heartbreaker Bay books, and the romance made me melt into a puddle. This series is filled with feel-good romance, great friendships and off the chart chemistry! Accidentally on Purpose is sweet, quirky, hot and funny, I had a really good time getting to know Elle and Archer better. It was apparent in the prior books that they were reluctantly attracted to each other, and that they were both holding back. Understanding why was very nice, and seeing behind Elle’s close to perfect façade made me like her even more. A go-getter and caregiver, Elle is always there for her friends, giving advice, helping out, working hard… But she doesn’t […]

Review: The Trouble With Mistletoe – Jill Shalvis

Review: The Trouble With Mistletoe – Jill Shalvis

The Trouble with Mistletoe was a great story, with characters who already feel like close friends of mine, and a romance that made me blush. Friendship, romance, blast from the past and pet-goodness… What’s not to love, right? The Trouble with Mistletoe managed to mix romance, hotness and sweetness to a near perfect mix, and I really enjoyed the characters, both the new ones, and those I already met in Sweet Little Lies. Willa felt slighted ever since her teenage years because of Keane, but never once had she tried to see things from his perspective. I loved how he tried to make friends with his great-aunt’s cat, and how that same cat brought him back into Willa’s orbit. A […]
