Review: Finding Our Forever – Brenda Novak

Review: Finding Our Forever – Brenda Novak

Finding Our Forever has some complex relationships, a lot of longing, a lot of love, and a little intrigue. It’s all set at a beautiful ranch away from the lights of the big city. The setting in Finding Our Forever is really nice, it’s a school for wayward young men, and because it’s kind of enclosed, it’s really more like a small town than anything else. Some teachers live on campus, as do all the students. The newest teacher, Cora, has more than one reason to want to be there, though. She has finally, after years of searching, found out who her biological mother is. And because her bio mom is the director of this school, she decided to apply for […]

Review: Her Halloween Treat – Tiffany Reisz

Review: Her Halloween Treat – Tiffany Reisz

Her Halloween Treat is such a great story, Reisz spins beautiful stories with characters I never want to leave. I don’t know how Reisz does it, but her stories always grabs me and pulls me in! Her Halloween Treat is no exception, as I fell instantly in love with both Joey and Chris. My feels were invested from the start, too, and the whole spectrum was involved. The way Reisz strings her words together to make beautiful sentences that become stories is a true piece of art, and I think I could print out a page of one of her books and frame it – that’s how much I love her writing. And while there were moments where Joey made […]

Review: A SEAL’s Touch – Tawny Weber

Review: A SEAL’s Touch – Tawny Weber

A SEAL’s Touch made me tingle all over – I love a good friends to lovers story, and Weber delivered on all the things I enjoy with that particular romance trope. Not only do I love friends to lovers, I love it even more when the two friends are completely unaware of how attractive the other person finds them 🙂 Of course, the fact that they already enjoy each other’s company is a huge added bonus, and the sexy and funny banter between Taylor and Cat was off the charts. A SEAL’s Touch can be read as a standalone, as there are only glimpses of other characters from other books in the series. The humour was a big part of […]

Review: A Buckhorn Summer – Lori Foster

Review: A Buckhorn Summer – Lori Foster

Sweet, hot, enticing, funny… A Buckhorn Summer is all that and more! On top of that – this little book actually has two stories inside! The second story is Back to Buckhorn, which I really enjoyed as well. My A Buckhorn Summer review: A one-night-stand that shows up in her home-town throws Lisa for a loop! But Gray is on that very same loop, wondering how fate has brought them back together again. Needing a summer away, Lisa goes home to re-evaluate her life, her job, her choices. And ever since that one night spent with a stranger, she can’t get him out of her mind. A Buckhorn Summer shows that sometimes, fate is definitely working for love! Both Gray […]

Review: This Heart of Mine – Brenda Novak

Review: This Heart of Mine – Brenda Novak

This Heart of Mine took me completely by surprise! A beautiful second chance at love story, set in one of my favorite fictional towns is just filled with good stuff even when there are bad things happening, too. My This Heart of Mine review: When I started This Heart of Mine, I was prepared not only to not enjoy the story, but to not enjoy the heroine either. And I’m so happy I was wrong! Phoenix hasn’t only had a tough childhood, her adult life hasn’t exactly been a piece of cake, either. In prison for 17 years, never having met her son before she was finally liberated, she decided to brave it all and go back to the town […]

Review: The Beautiful Ashes – Jeaniene Frost

Review: The Beautiful Ashes – Jeaniene Frost

The Beautiful Ashes is a good foray into Young Adult by one of my favourite authors! Using a different kind of paranormal, while developing both the characters and the story on the go, I was caught in the net Ms. Frost weaved for me. My The Beautiful Ashes review: The Beautiful Ashes is a fast-paced story, written in first person point of view, past tense, from Ivy’s perspective. She hasn’t had just a bad day, she’s had a bad month, and at the start of the story, it seems to just be getting worse! Ivy can see other dimensions superimposed on the dimension here on Earth, and her whole life she has thought she was hallucinating, and that what she […]

Review: Christmas with a SEAL – Tawny Weber

Review: Christmas with a SEAL – Tawny Weber

Hot, funny and totally filled with the Christmas spirit, Christmas with a SEAL got my heart beating faster as Frankie and Phillip got to know each other better. My Christmas with a SEAL review: Philip used to be the stuck-up commander of a team of SEALs, normally only called ‘Sir’, but after his abduction, he was not acting as tough anymore. At his sister’s wedding, Frankie – Lara’s friend – went around looking specifically for him, because he was her fantasy man ever since she was a teen. Christmas with a SEAL has some really good characters, but I mostly got to follow Phillip and Frankie – in and out of the bedroom… The strong chemistry and evident attraction between […]

Review : A Gentleman ’til Midnight – Alison DeLaine

Review : A Gentleman ’til Midnight – Alison DeLaine

*I received a free ARC of A Gentleman ’til Midnight from Harlequin via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* Fun and outrageous are just two of the words I have to describe A Gentleman ’til Midnight! Strong female lead is another. My A Gentleman ’til Midnight review: Starting with a ship closing in on a man floating on a small piece of driftwood, unconscious and seemingly still alive, A Gentleman ’til Midnight caught my full attention. Even more so when I realized the captain of the ship – which might be a pirate ship – was a woman! And at first, she didn’t want to risk hoisting a sick man aboard, even if her ship was the only one […]

Wedding at Cardwell Ranch – B.J. Daniels

Wedding at Cardwell Ranch – B.J. Daniels

*I received a free ARC of Wedding at Cardwell Ranch from Harlequin via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* Romance, mystery, suspense and some hot cowboy in an amazing community, Wedding at Cardwell Ranch is a pleasant read. My Wedding at Cardwell Ranch review: Finally back to work after her husband’s possible death, Allie is quite happy to be organizing a wedding at Cardwell ranch, if only to be out of her cabin and the strange things that are happening there. Of course, the fact that her precious daughter Natalie has lots of other kids to play with helps as well. Strange happenings continue to occur in her cabin, from finding lighted candles in the middle of the night, […]

Review: A SEAL’s Fantasy – Tawny Weber

Review: A SEAL’s Fantasy – Tawny Weber

*I received a free ARC of A SEAL’s Fantasy from Harlequin via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* Fast-paced romance filled with danger and hotness, A SEAL’s Fantasy made me hold on to my couch for the duration of this wild ride.  My A SEAL’s Fantasy review: Dominic is used to being the go-to man for advice, and when he finds himself hurt and not able to go on a dangerous mission, he’s not exactly feeling good about it. A SEAL’s Fantasy quickly shows Dominic that he can’t always decide how, why or when a mission needs to be taken care of, so when he has to find Lara to make sure a South-American drug-lord can’t get his hands […]
