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 […]

Review: The Red by Tiffany Reisz

Review: The Red by Tiffany Reisz

Wow. I can honestly say that I’ve never read anything quite like The Red by Tiffany Reisz. The book has a dreamlike quality that pervades the entire reading experience, so much that I found myself thinking about it over and over, even when I wasn’t actively reading it. Before the death of her mother, Mona […]

Review: Way Down Deep by Charlotte Stein and Cara McKenna

Review: Way Down Deep by Charlotte Stein and Cara McKenna

My romance reader dreams have come true. Two of my favorite authors, Charlotte Stein and Cara McKenna, got together and made a book baby. The result is Way Down Deep—a sexy, unique novel written entirely in text message format. That’s right—text messages. I wasn’t sure what to expect with this format, but I knew the […]

Review: Dirty Talk, Blissful Surrender by Opal Carew

Review: Dirty Talk, Blissful Surrender by Opal Carew

The Dirty Talk series by Opal Carew has become one of my favorites series ever. I had high hopes for Blissful Surrender, the final episode, and it did not disappoint. In fact, I may have had an out of body experience from swooning so hard. It’s that good. At the end of Sweet Release, Sonny […]

Review: Dirty Talk, Sweet Release by Opal Carew

Review: Dirty Talk, Sweet Release by Opal Carew

The Dirty Talk series by Opal Carew is my favorite series so far this year. Each installment is consistently good and increasingly sexy. I almost don’t want the series to end. At the end of the previous installment (Dirty Talk, Whispers in the Dark), we were left with a cliffhanger about Tal’s past. In the […]

Review: Daddy’s Best Friend by London Hale

5 hot as HALE stars! (I couldn’t resist.) London Hale is the pen name of writing duo Ellis Leigh and Brighton Walsh. It’s my first time reading either of them and now that I’ve had a taste, they’re going on my TBR again for sure–individually and as London. Daddy’s Best Friend is the first book […]

Review: If You Were Mine by Melanie Harlow

Review: If You Were Mine by Melanie Harlow

If You Were Mine is the first book I’ve read by Melanie Harlow, but it certainly won’t be my last. I give this 5 hand-on-my-heart, tear-filled, I-love-this-book stars! Claire French is a girl who plays it safe. She’s an elementary school art teacher who’d love to sell her art, but it’s something she’ll get around […]
