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. […]

Review: Bad News Cowboy by Maisey Yates

Review: Bad News Cowboy by Maisey Yates

Bad News Cowboy is book #3 in Maisey Yates’s Copper Ridge series, which is about the Garrett family in Copper Ridge, OR. I loved the first two books, Part Time Cowboy and Brokedown Cowboy, but Bad News Cowboy is my least favorite of the series thus far. While the general quality of the writing itself […]

Review: Stuck-Up Suit by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward

Review: Stuck-Up Suit by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward

This would have been a 4- or 5-star review if the story had ended halfway through. But then the plot took a huge twist, so it’s a 3-star review from me. Graham is an arrogant jerk. He’s also a successful businessman. When he takes the subway one morning, he accidentally leaves behind his phone, which is […]

Review: Let Them Talk by Susanna Carr

Review: Let Them Talk by Susanna Carr

Blaze is my favorite line of Harlequin books, along with Cosmo Red-Hot Reads. This is a collection of three novellas linked by friends Sydney, Isabel, and Laura. No longer welcome in their small town book club for choosing books deemed as too risqué, they’ve started the Blacklist Book Club, where they’re free to read the […]

Review: Broken Play by Samantha Kane

Review: Broken Play by Samantha Kane

Broken Play is the first book in the new Birmingham Rebels series. This book is way more than I bargained for, but overall I still think that it’s a decent read. *** SPOILERS FOLLOW *** It’s a spoiler for sure, but I feel like it needs to be disclosed upfront: this book contains not only ménage […]

Review: All Wound Up by Jaci Burton

Review: All Wound Up by Jaci Burton

Note: This is book #10 in the Play-by-Play series. I’ve read several books in the series, but not all of them (yet). Characters from previous books make appearances in this latest one, so that’s something to be aware of if you’re a stickler for reading a series in order. Regardless, All Wound Up can be read and […]

Review: Riding Steele by Opal Carew

Review: Riding Steele by Opal Carew

I’m very picky when reading books about motorcycle clubs, but Riding Steele was an interesting read for me. There are some pretty dark events that take place, but there are also some very sweet moments, which I didn’t expect. Also, the epilogue is actually pretty cute. Although there are a few predictable elements, the book […]
