Review: The Heat Is On – Katie Rose

Review: The Heat Is On – Katie Rose

The Heat Is On is one of the sweetest second chance at love romances I have read! Tracy and Connor were both very tentative, for different, but obvious reasons. I loved meeting the baseball players from Sonics again, and the way Tracy and Connor dealt with adversity. I think what made The Heat Is On so irresistible to me was the fact that Tracy had four very young children, and while Connor was taken aback when he first found out, he didn’t let that hinder him in his quest to win Tracy back. And those kids were just so cute, too – even if it was definitely a lot for Tracy to take care of them, especially because her creepy […]

Review: Laid Out – Sidney Halston

Review: Laid Out – Sidney Halston

Laid Out was hot, and it was filled with so much longing my heart almost burst with it! Apart from some typos that are probably fixed in the final version the story is well written with characters I enjoyed getting to know. My Laid Out review: Violet and Cain have known each other their whole lives, but apart from sharing a kiss, twelve years ago just before Cain and Jeremy deployed for the first time, they have been best friends. Laid Out is a friends-to-lovers romance, and it is gritty and filled with tension. And both Violet and Cain had their own demons to live with after Jeremy had died in combat, leaving Violet without her fiancé and Cain without […]

Review: Mine – Stacey Kennedy

Review: Mine – Stacey Kennedy

Mine is the seventh story in the Club Sin series, and this might be one of the reasons why I didn’t enjoy it all that much – not having read the other books in the series. However, I also found Presley to be very insecure and quite naïve, and Dmitri didn’t really seem all that dominant to me. My Mine review: I do kind of wish I had read the other Club Sin novels before I got to Mine, but at the same time, I really wanted to read this! A short, sexy romp was what I was looking for, and I didn’t really get that, though. There is a lot going on in Mine, and very little of it […]

Review: The Heat of the Moment – Katie Rose

Review: The Heat of the Moment – Katie Rose

This series keeps getting better with each installment! The Heat of the Moment is fun, sporty, flirty and sexy 🙂 My The Heat of the Moment review: The Heat of the Moment is my favorite in Rose’s Boys of Summer series, I think it was because even through Jessica’s reluctance to fall for Gavin, I could feel his charm and sincerity just as much as she did. Having been hurt badly in love before, I understood where Jessica came from, even if Gavin was very different from Jessica’s former boyfriend. I enjoyed Gavin a lot, because he had his whole life turned around due to a sports injury, and he was unsure if he’d be able to continue to play […]

Review: Ryker – Sawyer Bennett

Review: Ryker – Sawyer Bennett

Ryker was simply fucking fantastic! From beginning to end, I was swept off my feet by both Ryker and Gray, they were such wonderful characters to get to know, and I was cheering for them all the way! My Ryker review: I already enjoyed Ryker when he arrived to join Cold Fury Hockey in Zach, and in his own book, that man is just completely made of amazing! Strong, loyal, loving, he is raising his two girls on his own after his wife left him for a much younger guy. I love a dad who is taking good care of his children, and he definitely did that! Being the sole provider for them in every way wasn’t exactly easy, though, […]

Review: Too Hot to Handle – Katie Rose

Review: Too Hot to Handle – Katie Rose

Too Hot to Handle was a great read, especially because Nikki got pranked just as much as the players did, and Jake just couldn’t stay away from her. My Too Hot to Handle review: Too Hot to Handle gave a little more character growth and insight to the various guys playing baseball. Jake intrigued me in Bring on the Heat, because while he was a good looking guy, I thought he was definite trouble. And boy, was he! Not the way I thought – but still! Nikki was brought on board with the New Jersey Sonics to save the team’s public image, and the players plus the on-staff marketing guy did everything they could to make life difficult for her. […]

Review: Bring on the Heat – Katie Rose

Review: Bring on the Heat – Katie Rose

Bring on the Heat is a sweet romance, in which the suspension of disbelief is definitely needed. I enjoyed Darcy a lot, and Chase was a good character as well. My Bring on the Heat review: Darcy’s predicament started out innocent enough in Bring on the Heat, when the rich socialite she is house-sitting for gives her tickets to a charity event where her favorite baseball team will be in attendance. From the very start, Bring on the Heat had me think what was going on was not very likely. Especially when Darcy went to the hair-salon where Lydia usually got her hair done, and after some highlights and extensions – voilà! she looked just like Lydia. So much so […]

Review: Can’t Always Get What You Want – Chelsey Krause

Review: Can’t Always Get What You Want – Chelsey Krause

Can’t Always Get What you Want is a slow-paced, kind of sad romance in which Sophie needs to let go of the past so that she can get on with the rest of her life. My Can’t Always Get What You Want review: Can’t Always Get What You Want was tingled with sadness and want, because Sophie wasn’t ready to let the past completely go, even when meeting Brett and finding a man that was as close to her dream as possible. They were both single, and they had so much in common their story could have been quite straight-forward, if it wasn’t for the fact that Sophie had never truly let herself grieve Aaron, and so, five years later, […]

Review: Zack – Sawyer Bennett

Review: Zack – Sawyer Bennett

Wham! And my heart broke! Kate is so loving, tender, open-minded and amazing I fell for her almost as hard as I fell for Zack and his ornery ways! My Zack review: When I started reading Zack, I knew the story would be heart-breaking, what with him getting over Gina’s death, in a car-wreck where he was in the car as well. Dealing with the guilt, having to pick up his life and be a single father to Ben all  the while working on getting back in top physical shape so he could play hockey again. Most of his team-mates don’t really know how to act around him, and he has no idea what he has to do to truly […]

Review: What a Lady Requires – Ashlyn MacNamara

Review: What a Lady Requires – Ashlyn MacNamara

What a Lady Requires is a great ending to the Eton Boys Trilogy, and I especially enjoyed Emma with her knowledge for numbers, even if she was not so good at mingling in society. My What a Lady Requires review: While I thought What a Lady Requires is a good ending to the Eton Boys Trilogy, it didn’t sweep me off my feet like it could have. The pacing was very slow, and while I enjoyed both Emma and Rowan, they were a little more reserved than the characters in the first two stories. I loved that Emma had such a head for business, though, and that she was able to share this with her husband, even if he was […]
