Review: Afterburn/Aftershock by Sylvia Day

Review: Afterburn/Aftershock by Sylvia Day

The characters in Afterburn/Aftershock by Sylvia Day are reminiscent of those in her Crossfire series: the hero is an alpha male millionaire and the heroine is a sassy, headstrong, and career-minded woman. Like the characters in that series, Gia and Jax have a tumultuous relationship that left me wondering just what keeps them together, other […]

Review: Total Surrender by Opal Carew

Review: Total Surrender by Opal Carew

Played by the Master Desperate to help her sister and brother-in-law, Jacquie attempts to persuade billionaire Race Danner to aid them. This isn’t the type of story I typically read—I tend to stay away from billionaires—but I adore Opal Carew’s books. Played by the Master reads very much like a fantasy, which is how I […]

Review: Halloween with the Hunk by Jewel Killian

Review: Halloween with the Hunk by Jewel Killian

Halloween with the Hunk by Jewel Killian has a fun premise: girl meets hunky lumberjack next door and sparks fly. However, there’s a lot more to this story than I expected and not all of it worked for me. Graduate student Cass is staying at her friend’s parents’ house for a few days to work on […]

Review: All About the D by Lex Martin and Leslie McAdam

Review: All About the D by Lex Martin and Leslie McAdam

All About the D by Lex Martin & Leslie McAdam is tough to review. I flew through the first half and loved it. Then the story goes into drama llama territory and I found the second half plodding at times. It was disappointing since the book starts out fun and sexy, but the tone of […]

Review: More Than Want You by Shayla Black

Review: More Than Want You by Shayla Black

More Than Want You is book #1 in Shayla Black’s new More Than Words series. A departure from her erotic romance novels, this series is more in the contemporary vein with a slightly new adult feel. For me, More Than Want You had a slow start and I had some issues with it. Ultimately, I […]

Review: Twice as Hard by Amber Bardan

Review: Twice as Hard by Amber Bardan

Twice as Hard by Amber Bardan is billed as a dark, taboo romance. In reality, there’s a significant plot twist halfway through that changes the course of the book. There’s also quite a bit of angst thrown in for good measure. While portions of the story are super hot, the twist threw off the story […]

Review: The Black Room: Door Six by Jasinda Wilder

Review: The Black Room: Door Six by Jasinda Wilder

The Black Room: Door Six by Jasinda Wilder is part of a serial and definitely should be read in order. This door reads a lot like Outlander, reimagined as an erotic romance. There are similar elements: Scottish warrior with a price on his head, evil English soldiers trying to capture him, lead female character who […]

Review: The Only One by Lauren Blakely

Review: The Only One by Lauren Blakely

The Only One by Lauren Blakely is a novella about second chances. It’s about the idea of fate and how some things in life–like love–are just meant to be. Penelope (aka Penny) runs an animal rescue and has a big fundraiser planned. The restaurant she had booked to cater the event bailed at the last […]

Review: The Black Room: Door Two by Jasinda Wilder

Review: The Black Room: Door Two by Jasinda Wilder

The Black Room: Door Two by Jasinda Wilder is part of a serial and definitely should be read in order. In comparison to Door One, Door Two goes much further, in an explicit sense, than the first installment. This part of the story explores menage–specifically, MFM and later MFF. The end of this installment turns […]

Review: Taken Three Times by Madison Faye

Review: Taken Three Times by Madison Faye

As you can infer by the blurb and cover, Taken Three Times by Madison Faye is an over-the-top menage story with not just two, but three guys and one girl (MFMM). I’d recommend this story for fans of Alexa Riley since it hits a lot of the same notes: insta-lust, an implausible plot, and super alpha […]
