I can tell you that the raves are well deserved! This story has so many unexpected layers and deeply moving moments. I was a bit nervous going in […]

Review: Bond by Tasha Black

Review: Bond by Tasha Black

What is it about alien romance novels that is so darn entertaining? This was my first read by Tasha Black, but I was utterly charmed by Bond and can’t wait to binge the rest of this series, which has the most awesome series name, by the way: Stargazer Alien Mail Order Brides. Posey Quinn thinks […]

Review: Mom’s Perfect Boyfriend by Crystal Hemmingway

If you’ve ever had a well-intentioned but overbearing mother—and had a consequently complicated relationship with said mother—this book is for you. Mom’s Perfect Boyfriend by Crystal Hemmingway is a quirky, fun twist on the romantic comedy—and is just as much about the family dynamics that most of us can relate to. When Crystal is laid […]

Merry Christmas, Baby is a follow-up to Chloe and Sawyer’s story from Head Over Heels (book #3). This is a short but sweet story that’s infused with a strong sense of realism past the […]

Review: Size Matters by Stephanie Julian

Review: Size Matters by Stephanie Julian

Size Matters is book #1 in Stephanie Julian’s Lovers on the Fringe series, which features paranormal beings such as shifters and Fae. It’s a short but fun story, one I’ve read in the past and had just as much fun revisiting. Carrie is a photojournalist for the Weekly News Journal–think National Enquirer, and you’ve got […]
