Review: Colters’ Woman by Maya Banks

Review: Colters’ Woman by Maya Banks

Note: This review contains some spoilers for the book, but let’s be honest, this is what you came for, right? As a romance reader, sometimes I’m in the mood for an off-the-wall, completely wackadoodle story. Colters’ Woman by Maya Banks fits the bill. I found it completely unrealistic and melodramatic, but there were moments that […]

Review: Tempted by the Badge by Deborah Fletcher Mello

Review: Tempted by the Badge by Deborah Fletcher Mello

Tempted by the Badge by Deborah Fletcher Mello is the second book in the To Serve and Seduce miniseries. I read it as a standalone and didn’t have issues keeping track of the story. Overall, I enjoyed this romantic suspense that really caught my attention in the first half. However, the second half lagged a […]

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 […]

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 […]
