Review: Unwilling Mate by Opal Carew

Review: Unwilling Mate by Opal Carew

Oh, it pains me to write this review. 😖 I love Opal Carew so much, but Unwilling Mate just didn’t work for me. I’m especially bummed because I enjoyed the first book in this series, Forbidden Mate, so much. Eva has been burned by love. Although she’s now divorced from her cheating ex-husband, she still […]

Review: Mentor by Opal Carew, Avery Aster, and Jayne Rylon

Review: Mentor by Opal Carew, Avery Aster, and Jayne Rylon

Mentor is book #4 in the Penthouse Pleasures series, but can be read as a standalone. Oh how I wanted to love Mentor, but unfortunately this one missed the mark for me. Most of the book felt so random, like the authors were throwing the erotic romance kitchen sink at the plot. Elle works in […]

Review: Trade Me by Courtney Milan

Review: Trade Me by Courtney Milan

I wanted to love Trade Me so much but it just did not work for me. 😖 The writing itself is fine, but I found the story boring and struggled to pay attention throughout the book. Long story short: Blake is rich (son of a tech mogul), Tina is poor, they know each other from […]

Review: Stud Finder by Lauren Blakely

Review: Stud Finder by Lauren Blakely

I’m a big fan of Lauren Blakely’s novels because they’re packed with humor, banter, sexiness, and feels. Whenever I read one of her romantic comedies, I know I can expect that great combination. Sadly, Stud Finder missed the mark for me, in many ways. Dylan is a sexy, tech geek millionaire who’s ready to get […]

Review: The Roswell Affair by Anne Bordeaux

Review: The Roswell Affair by Anne Bordeaux

The Roswell Affair by Anne Bordeaux is a novella in The Dirty Bits line by Carina Press. These are described as micro-romances that are intended to be read in an hour. That being said, I figured this would be a quick and fun read—I mean, look at the cover, the guy is a blue alien. […]

Review: Seducing His Student by London Hale

Review: Seducing His Student by London Hale

I’ve enjoyed London Hale’s books in the past, but unfortunately, Seducing His Student missed the mark for me. It’s billed as a taboo romance–which it is, in a sense–but elements of insta-love and a too neatly wrapped-up ending didn’t work for me. College student Samantha works at the local coffee shop when she’s not working […]

Review: Under Construction by Aria Cole

Review: Under Construction by Aria Cole

Under Construction by Aria Cole is book #1 in her Blue Collar Alphas series. Although the first part of the book is promising, it goes from zero to marriage and babies in approximately 55 pages. Sadly, that did not work for me. Paige is a veterinarian who has recently moved into a new apartment. She […]

Review: Drilled by Opal Carew

Review: Drilled by Opal Carew

It pains me to rate an Opal Carew book so low. Normally, I avoid billionaire heroes, but since Carew is one of my favorite authors, I wanted to give it a try. Unfortunately, this just didn’t work for me. Drilled takes the construction worker trope and gives it a twist. In this novella, Danielle (Danni) […]

Review: Blind Date by Emma Hart

Review: Blind Date by Emma Hart

Blind Date is the first book I’ve read by Emma Hart. Technically, it’s a novella, and the length of the story felt just right to me. However, the relationship between the hero and heroine felt underdeveloped. Also, there were some serious editing issues that distracted me throughout the book. Bee Donnelly has been set up […]
