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 […]

Review: Sweet Little Lies – Jill Shalvis

Review: Sweet Little Lies – Jill Shalvis

Sweet Little Lies is a fantastic start to Shalvis’ new series. There is romance galore, as well as friendship, humor and loyalty as well. As soon as I started reading Sweet Little Lies, I knew I was going to fall in love with it! First of all, the romantic interest’s name is Finn *sighs* and he owns an Irish bar *double-sighs* and he’s loyal to a fault, strong and hardworking. Plus, he’s very easy on the eyes. The way Pru described him to me showed me I was going to love her as well. She’s been through a lot, none of it her won fault, and because she’s felt so much guilt over her parents’ mistakes, she’s made it her […]

Review: The Piano Man Project – Kat French

Review: The Piano Man Project – Kat French

Fun, flirty, but still pretty deep, The Piano Man Project was a very good story. My The Piano Man Project review: Honeysuckle (yes, that’s her name!!) has not had a lot of luck when it comes to men, and when she tells her best friends she’s never had an orgasm in her life, they decide to help her find a man – one who is good with his hands. And that’s how the piano man project was born, over drinks after a visit to a sex-shop. However, even with her friends’ intervention, and with her best interest at heart, Honey is so intrigued by her new neighbor Hal that any other man just seems kind of bland next to him […]

Review: Up From the Grave (Night Huntress #7) – Jeaniene Frost

Review: Up From the Grave (Night Huntress #7) – Jeaniene Frost

Up From the Grave is the last installment in one of my favorite series ever, and wow, did it take me for a wild ride! My emotions were all over the place, and this review is going to be very hard to write without spoiling anything – but I still promise there are no spoilers. Cat is true to herself in Up From the Grave – always ready to give her all to save the ones she care about, and there is a lot of sacrifice going on in this story. However, a lot can be achieved with a little help from our friends, right? From on crisis to the next, there is never a dull moment, and a lot […]

Review: A Night to Surrender (Spindle Cove #1) – Tessa Dare

Review: A Night to Surrender (Spindle Cove #1) – Tessa Dare

A Night to Surrender is a truly delightful story! I fell in love with Susanna from the very beginning, it was so refreshing to read about a regency era heroine who is intelligent, strong-minded and who won’t back down from a challenge. Disappointed with her own debut, she has decided to help young women in a safe environment, and Spindle Cove is the perfect place for it. Susanna grew up there, and now she brings shy, unconventional-looking or too brazen women to the same place, to help them all advance in some field. Susanna herself is quite unconventional, and she does not believe women should always be demure, obey men and not enlighten themselves in science or other matters usually […]

Review: Twice Tempted (Night Prince #2) – Jeaniene Frost

Review: Twice Tempted (Night Prince #2) – Jeaniene Frost

Twice Tempted is book #2 in the Night Prince series, and it continues showing how complex Vlad is, and what Leila needs to be happy living in his castle. I love how controlling Vlad has always seemed to me, yet with Leila there is something more soft and caring about him. But there are some concessions he won’t make though – saying ‘I love you’ is one of them. Showing the difference between Leila and Vlad based on their life experience, and Leila doesn’t have her powers anymore at the beginning of Twice Tempted, and it seems to her that since she lost her powers, Vlad has lost interest in her. She is sad, and doesn’t know what to do […]

Review: The Scandalous, Dissolute, No Good Mr. Wright – Tessa Dare

Review: The Scandalous, Dissolute, No Good Mr. Wright – Tessa Dare

*I received a free ARC of The Scandalous, Dissolute, No Good Mr. Wright from Avon Books via Edelweiss in exchange of an honest review* The Scandalous, Dissolute, No Good Mr. Wright is a fun and romantic book, about the man Eliza really should stay far, far away from. When she meets him for the first time, she finds him quite different from the rake she’d imagined, though…
