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 […]

Review: Touch & Go – Mira Lyn Kelly

Review: Touch & Go – Mira Lyn Kelly

Touch & Go is extremely hot, and I loved how Sam and Ava had been friends since they were kids, both of them hanging on to their friendship when their hormones told them there could be much more for them in store. Touch & Go is one of the best friends to lovers romances I have ever had the pleasure of reading! Sam and Ava had chemistry galore, but they were both hiding behind their long friendship, until that just wasn’t possible anymore. When Sam agreed to be Ava’s ‘date’ to a party at her workplace, to keep a colleague from continuing to try to pick her up, they shared one of the hottest kisses in history, and let’s just […]

Review: Once and Again – Elisabeth Barrett

Review: Once and Again – Elisabeth Barrett

Second-chance romances are the absolute best! And Once and Again was both nostalgic, sweet, hot and well done! Once and Again is filled with nostalgia, but there is also an underlying tension that isn’t all positive, especially in the beginning. Carolyn had a pretty easy childhood, her parents were well off, and if she visited the golf club, it was as a guest. One summer, she fell for one of the caddie’s and they had a short, but hot relationship – until her father caught them and sent the young man away in handcuffs. Years later, Carolyn is down on her luck, her father has lost all their money, and she’s working as an event organizor at the golf club […]

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 […]
