Sex is the therapeutic conduit through which she helps people overcome issues with intimacy. And when Liza’s not working hard, she’s playing even harder. She has a very particular set of kinks–mainly BDSM, […]

Review: Dirty Talk, Secret Pleasure by Opal Carew

ALERT: Dirty Talk, Secret Pleasure by Opal Carew is HOT HOT HOT. This book is super short and ends on a cliffhanger but I DON’T CARE. I loved this novella and can’t wait for the next installment. Sonny lives in fear of men. She has some type of trauma in her past–it hasn’t been revealed […]

Review: Never Better by Charlotte Stein

Review: Never Better by Charlotte Stein

Here’s the thing about Charlotte Stein’s books: they’re just so damn good. I savored my read of Never Better, a slow burn romance that masterfully builds a sense of longing and intensity between its main characters. Never Better is book #3 in Stein’s Dark Obsession series, but each is a standalone. In this book, Lydia […]

Review: Under Her Skin by Adriana Anders

Review: Under Her Skin by Adriana Anders

Under Her Skin by Adriana Anders blew me away. Its raw sincerity, combined with a romance that I can only describe as urgent and primal, completely pummeled my heart. Uma is on the run from an abusive past. Her ex-boyfriend, Joey, was a manipulator who controlled Uma’s life, cutting her off from family and friends. […]

Review: Ruthless by Gina L. Maxwell

Review: Ruthless by Gina L. Maxwell

How is it possible for a book to be completely smutty but also romantic at the same time? In a word: Ruthless. Ruthless is book #2 in Gina L. Maxwell’s Playboys in Love series, which follows a group of friends who also happen to be male strippers (very Magic Mike). Roman Reeves is a dichotomy: […]

Review: Prairie Heat by Tessa Layne

Review: Prairie Heat by Tessa Layne

Prairie Heat is book #1 in Tessa Layne’s Cowboys of the Flint Hills series. The story gets off to a pretty hot start (always a plus, in my book) and continues with some strong sexual tension between the main characters. It all leads up to a complex plot twist that I didn’t see coming. The […]

Review: Ready to Fall by Olivia Dade

Review: Ready to Fall by Olivia Dade

*happy sigh* Ready to Fall is book #4 is Olivia Dade’s Lovestruck Librarians series, which follows a fun group of librarian friends. This novella delivers constant humor (that literally made me laugh out loud!) along with a sweetly emotional romance. Teacher and part-time librarian Sarah Mayhew is a handful. She’s feisty, clever, and funny. However, […]

Review: Deep Down by Mia Hopkins

Review: Deep Down by Mia Hopkins

Since I’m a huge fan of Mia Hopkins’s Cowboy Cocktail series, I was excited to dive into her Kings of California series as well. Deep Down brings the same heat, humor, and emotion that I’ve come to love from this author. Sushi chef Eve Ono finds herself without a job when her father abruptly fires […]
