Review: Sugar Free – Sawyer Bennett

Review: Sugar Free – Sawyer Bennett

Sugar Free nicely ends the Sugar Bowl series… but not after some incredible twists and turns where every possible solution seems impossible. A lot is going on in Sugar Free, and beware of possible spoilers from Sugar Daddy and Sugar Rush in this review, as it’s really very difficult to discuss what happens here without sharing what happened in the prior two instalments. Sela is in a seemingly impossible predicament at the beginning of the story, and Beck jumps in head first to save her and keep her out of harm’s way. Even with the horrible actions Sela had to partake in, because she only did it to save herself, I was cheering her on. Beck went way out of his comfort […]

Review: Jackson’s Trust – Violet Duke

Review: Jackson’s Trust – Violet Duke

Jackson’s Trust has many great romance aspects, as well as a couple I had to make myself suspend disbelief for… There were many things in Jackson’s Trust that appealed to me, one of them was Leila! She’s a sports journalist, covering the NFL, and in this man’s world, she really has everything to prove. Jackson quickly understands that Leila’s mind works much like his own – she analyses every little thing in a game, and she has the stats to back up her predictions. From the first time they meet, sparks fly, but they are both holding back for different reasons. Leila doesn’t want to be the woman who seemingly gets ahead by sleeping with the boss, and Jackson thinks […]

Review: Destined for a King – Ashlyn Macnamara

Review: Destined for a King – Ashlyn Macnamara

Destined for a King is the story of two very strong characters, a world in which the king is the ultimate ruler, and where there is no room for mistakes… Destined for a King is set in a fantasy world, that has a little bit of a medieval feel to it. There is magic, and there is a war on the horizon. This war is brought literally into Calista’s front yard, when Torch and his Bastard Brotherhood take the fort under siege. Torch is badly hurt, though, and Calista has to nurse him back to health, or her father will not only stay in prison, but be executed. Torch doesn’t really care that Calista has been promised to the king, […]

Review: Sugar Rush – Sawyer Bennett

Review: Sugar Rush – Sawyer Bennett

Oh my freaking goodness. Sugar Rush has left me with a thundering heart and completely out of breath! Bennett is a master at mixing erotica and suspense, and she truly proved that in Sugar Rush! All my feelings were invested, and I swear, Sela almost killed me at times. Both at the beginning and towards the very end, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to hurry up and read or if I needed a break from the emotional rollercoaster. Beck is an awesome character, too, and the way his and Sela’s relationship is getting stronger is so well done. I love that they are able to share everything with each other, even if they don’t always do it anyway. Fast […]

Review: Made for Sin – Stacia Kane

Review: Made for Sin – Stacia Kane

Made for Sin is set in a dark, gritty universe, where there are demons and magic, and where safety is not a given. Characters that kept me on my toes, a tight plot and a good storyline entertained me and had me hooked from start to finish. Made for Sin has quite a bit of suspense, as the story starts with the discovery of a corpse without its right arm. Yes, you read that right – the whole arm was taken off, from the shoulder, and the rest was left behind. Speare was the one PI who was set on the case, and he needed help both from the police and from a thief who might know something about a […]

Review: Sugar Daddy – Sawyer Bennett

Review: Sugar Daddy – Sawyer Bennett

Sugar Daddy is well done! Sela has a lot on her mind, and she is ready to do what it takes to get revenge! Only, Beck kind of throws her for a loop, with his charming personality and how he’s able to give her feelings she never thought she’d ever have. When I started Sugar Daddy, I didn’t think I’d get the hotness factor I received! Sela seemed so set on revenge, I thought there wouldn’t be any kind of connection between her and Beck, but man, I was so wrong! As Beck and Sela got to know each other better – both in bed and out of it – their relationship became something Sela could count on. And she […]

Review: To Lure a Proper Lady – Ashlyn Macnamara

Review: To Lure a Proper Lady – Ashlyn Macnamara

To Lure a Proper Lady is a quick, humorous and sexy read – I loved Lizzie, she was definitely a proper lady in many ways, but quite forward in others… To Lure a Proper Lady is an amazing mix of family obligations, mystery and forbidden romance, with a main character who is much stronger than she thinks. When Lizzie thinks someone is trying to poison her father, the Duke, she goes on her own to Bow Street to hire a runner, and ends up with Dysart coming to the ducal seat for a fortnight to investigate during a house-party. They are both smart, but there are too many possibilities to follow, plus the attraction they feel for each other is […]

Review: Highland Awakening – Jennifer Haymore

Review: Highland Awakening – Jennifer Haymore

I loved the beginning of Highland Awakening, but after a while, it became almost too steamy for a historical romance, and that’s really something I never thought I’d say! Esme and Cam both intrigued me from the start of Highland Awakening, their first meeting happened in a whorehouse, where Cam was guarding a lord, and Esme was suddenly left alone with him in an antechamber… At first, I had no idea what Esme was doing there, and neither did Cam, but their chemistry flared from that first meeting, and hot kisses ensued. Their next meeting was at a dinner party at Esme’s brother’s – the Duke of Trent – house, and that was when Cam was well and truly hooked. […]

Review: Hawke – Sawyer Bennett

Review: Hawke – Sawyer Bennett

Everybody knows I love Cold Fury Hockey, and Hawke, he definitely made me melt, but then, so did Vale! Hawke’s story is very complicated, because he and Vale were together for four years when they were younger, up until the day he left Sydney for Pittsburg to play professional hockey. Then, she told him she didn’t love him, and she never looked back. Fast forward several years, and they meet again, when Hawke starts playing for Cold Fury Hockey, and Vale is the new PT / physiotherapist for the club. All of his feelings of betrayal and hurt come back to the surface, while at the same time he just can’t help but feel utterly attracted to her. The story […]

Review: Now and Ten – Mira Lyn Kelly

Review: Now and Ten – Mira Lyn Kelly

Now and Then is a great second chance at love romances, and I had been looking forward to Ford’s story since I read the first installment in this series. Brynn and Ford had such amazing chemistry, and I loved getting to know them better. Ford and Brynn were dating in college, and Ford was sure they would get married and have children, even when their relationship was new. And they were great together, until they weren’t. Together anymore, that is. Brynn broke up with Ford by e-mail and just didn’t come back to college. When he called her, she told him she had found someone else. Fast forward a few years, and Ford the computer geek has several popular app […]
