Review: Make Me Stay by Jaci Burton

Review: Make Me Stay by Jaci Burton

Make Me Stay is book #5 in Jaci Burton’s Hope series. Although I felt that something was missing from the romance itself, overall this is an enjoyable story. Samantha (Sam) runs the local floral shop in Hope. She lost her parents at a young age and was raised by her grandmother. Now that her grandmother […]

Review: Love After All by Jaci Burton

Review: Love After All by Jaci Burton

Love After All is book #4 in Jaci Burton’s Hope series. Although this book started out strong, it seemed to drag on needlessly, causing me to lose interest toward the end. A sweet epilogue helped to wrap up the story nicely, but overall this was just an okay read for me. Chelsea is a high […]

Review: Hope Burns by Jaci Burton

Hope Burns is book #3 in Jaci Burton’s Hope series, which takes place in the small town of Hope, Oklahoma. While this book isn’t my favorite of the series so far, it’s still an enjoyable read that explores some heavy issues between the main characters. Molly has come back to Hope for her sister Emma’s […]

Review: He’s So Fine by Jill Shalvis

Review: He’s So Fine by Jill Shalvis

He’s So Fine is book #11 in Jill Shalvis’s Lucky Harbor series. This book started out strong, but the plot fell a bit flat for me toward the end. It’s not one of my favorites in the series. Olivia moved to the small town of Lucky Harbor to escape her past, which revolves around a […]

Review: Decadent by Shayla Black

Review: Decadent by Shayla Black

I don’t know where to begin, except to say that this whole post is NSFW and NSF the faint of heart when it comes to sex. Decadent is book #2 in the Wicked Lovers series by Shayla Black. I started and did not finish book #1, Wicked Ties–it just didn’t work for me with the […]

Review: My Reckless Valentine by Olivia Dade

Review: My Reckless Valentine by Olivia Dade

I love Olivia Dade’s writing style. I liked a lot about My Reckless Valentine, which is filled with humor and witty dialogue, as well as characters who I enjoyed getting to know. My Reckless Valentine is book #2 in the Lovestruck Librarians series and the follow-up to Broken Resolutions. The heroine, branch manager Angie, frequently […]

Review: MacKenzie Fire by Elle Casey

Review: MacKenzie Fire by Elle Casey

After reading and loving Shine Not Burn, I was excited to read its follow-up, MacKenzie Fire. For me, something was missing from the romance in this book that caused me not to respond to it the same way. I still enjoyed the book, just not as much as the first one. Candice is the best […]

Review: Flirting with Fire by Kate Meader

Review: Flirting with Fire by Kate Meader

I enjoyed Flirting with Fire, but there were some things that prevented me from loving it more. This is the first book in the Hot in Chicago series, which follows a family of firefighters. The main romance is about Kinsey and Luke, but there are also subplots involving two other couples: Alex (Luke’s foster sister) and […]

Review: One Sizzling Night by Jo Leigh

Review: One Sizzling Night by Jo Leigh

One Sizzling Night was an enjoyable read and one that delved into deeper subject matter than I expected. I’ve come to love Harlequin Blaze titles–which makes this read bittersweet, following the recent announcement that the Blaze line will be ending in 2017. I rarely expect Blaze books to get too heavy as far as subject […]

Review: Time Served by Julianna Keyes

Review: Time Served by Julianna Keyes

I have mixed feelings about Time Served. Halfway in, I would’ve sworn it was a 5-star read, but the character development dropped off a bit in the second half, so that prevented me from loving the book more. Rachel Moser grew up in a trailer park, though you’d never know it by looking at her. […]
