Review: Down by Contact by Santino Hassell

Review: Down by Contact by Santino Hassell

Down by Contact is the first book that I’ve read by Santino Hassell, but it definitely won’t be my last. Hassell’s highly readable writing style and realistic characters made this is a great read that I flew through. Down by Contact is an m/m, enemies-to-lovers story. New York Barons quarterback Simeon Boudreaux is a fan […]

Review: The Ones Who Got Away by Roni Loren

Review: The Ones Who Got Away by Roni Loren

The Ones Who Got Away by Roni Loren is the first romance novel I’ve ever read that centers around a school shooting. That might sound like an odd combination, but it makes sense when you think about it. The media named them The Ones Who Got Away: survivors of the Long Acre High School shooting, […]

Review: The Trouble with Mistletoe by Jill Shalvis

The Trouble with Mistletoe by Jill Shalvis is a perfect holiday read. It’s a combination of sassy humor, sexy times, and heartfelt moments. Willa Davis is shocked when someone from her past walks into her pet store, South Bark Mutt Shop. Keane Winters stood her up years ago, back in high school. That’s bad enough, […]

Review: Wilde in Love by Eloisa James

Review: Wilde in Love by Eloisa James

Wilde in Love by Eloisa James might be the perfect historical romance. Its keen blend of wit, humor, and swoon-worthy moments had me drawing out my reading for as long as possible.

Review: Most of All You by Mia Sheridan

Review: Most of All You by Mia Sheridan

Most of All You by Mia Sheridan is perfection. In this deeply emotional story, two broken people find each other—find love—and find themselves. The main characters, Crystal and Gabriel, are best revealed slowly, so I’ve chosen to be intentionally vague in this review. Suffice it to say that I was both surprised and captivated by […]

Review: The Ghostwriter by Alessandra Torre

Review: The Ghostwriter by Alessandra Torre

Note: Although this author typically writes romance, The Ghostwriter is not a romance novel. It’s more in the vein of suspense and psychological fiction. However, it moved me so deeply that I had to post a review here. The Ghostwriter by Alessandra Torre is a dark, haunting story about secrets and lies. It’s a story […]

Review: Snowed In with the Bad Boy by Sylvia Pierce

Review: Snowed In with the Bad Boy by Sylvia Pierce

Snowed In with the Bad Boy by Sylvia Pierce packs quite a punch. It’s sexy, insanely hot, surprisingly tender, and I loved everything about it. It’s Christmas Eve, but former black ops soldier Ronan Steel has no desire to celebrate. Alone in his cabin in the Rocky Mountains–with no one but his faithful dog, Bella, […]

Review: The Duchess Deal by Tessa Dare

Review: The Duchess Deal by Tessa Dare

I love this book SO much. Books like The Duchess Deal are the reason why I read romance. This marriage of convenience/beauty and the beast story made me so happy. The Duke of Ashbury needs a wife. More importantly, he needs an heir so that the dukedom doesn’t pass to his prat of a cousin. […]

Review: The Perfect Bargain by Julia London

Review: The Perfect Bargain by Julia London

The Perfect Bargain by Julia London, writing as Jessa McAdams, is a fun, sexy, swoony read that I greatly enjoyed. It takes the fake boyfriend trope and combines it with the city mouse/country mouse theme that I’m a sucker for. Sloane Chatfield thought she had it all: a privileged upbringing, a successful fiancé, a squad […]

Review: Uncommon Passion by Anne Calhoun

Review: Uncommon Passion by Anne Calhoun

Anne Calhoun’s writing is intensely raw, honest, and thought-provoking. Beyond this, her characters are ones who will stay with you long after you’ve finished the story. Rachel Hill is the heroine of Uncommon Passion and she is some kind of undercover badass. Raised in a fundamentalist religious community (aka cult), she makes the heart wrenching […]
