Review: The Roswell Affair by Anne Bordeaux

Review: The Roswell Affair by Anne Bordeaux

The Roswell Affair by Anne Bordeaux is a novella in The Dirty Bits line by Carina Press. These are described as micro-romances that are intended to be read in an hour. That being said, I figured this would be a quick and fun read—I mean, look at the cover, the guy is a blue alien. […]

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. I simply didn’t want the book to end. Lord Alaric Wilde has returned to his homeland of England after years away as an […]

Review: Afterburn/Aftershock by Sylvia Day

Review: Afterburn/Aftershock by Sylvia Day

The characters in Afterburn/Aftershock by Sylvia Day are reminiscent of those in her Crossfire series: the hero is an alpha male millionaire and the heroine is a sassy, headstrong, and career-minded woman. Like the characters in that series, Gia and Jax have a tumultuous relationship that left me wondering just what keeps them together, other […]

Review: Total Surrender by Opal Carew

Review: Total Surrender by Opal Carew

Played by the Master Desperate to help her sister and brother-in-law, Jacquie attempts to persuade billionaire Race Danner to aid them. This isn’t the type of story I typically read—I tend to stay away from billionaires—but I adore Opal Carew’s books. Played by the Master reads very much like a fantasy, which is how I […]

Review: When I Found You by Kate James

Review: When I Found You by Kate James

I received a copy of this book from the Orange County Chapter of RWA’s Book Buyer’s Best Contest, for which I was a first round judge. When I Found You by Kate James is packed with action, but unfortunately that wasn’t enough to hold my attention. The romance itself felt underdeveloped, so once love happens, […]

Review: Halloween with the Hunk by Jewel Killian

Review: Halloween with the Hunk by Jewel Killian

Halloween with the Hunk by Jewel Killian has a fun premise: girl meets hunky lumberjack next door and sparks fly. However, there’s a lot more to this story than I expected and not all of it worked for me. Graduate student Cass is staying at her friend’s parents’ house for a few days to work on […]

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 […]
