Review: In Her Defense by Julianna Keyes

Review: In Her Defense by Julianna Keyes

When I finished reading In Her Defense, I had an actual goofy grin on my face. This book is simultaneously sweet and super sexy. I liked it so much. This is book #2 in the Time Served series. (See my review for book #1 here.) In Her Defense has a different feel from Time Served, which […]

Review: Flirting with Fire by Kate Meader

Review: Flirting with Fire by Kate Meader

I enjoyed Flirting with Fire, but there were some things that prevented me from loving it more. This is the first book in the Hot in Chicago series, which follows a family of firefighters. The main romance is about Kinsey and Luke, but there are also subplots involving two other couples: Alex (Luke’s foster sister) and […]

Review: One Sizzling Night by Jo Leigh

Review: One Sizzling Night by Jo Leigh

One Sizzling Night was an enjoyable read and one that delved into deeper subject matter than I expected. I’ve come to love Harlequin Blaze titles–which makes this read bittersweet, following the recent announcement that the Blaze line will be ending in 2017. I rarely expect Blaze books to get too heavy as far as subject […]

Review: Wrong Number, Right Guy by Elle Casey

Review: Wrong Number, Right Guy by Elle Casey

I loved this book! I’d never read anything by Elle Casey before, but she is definitely going on my Will Read Again list. The premise of the story is a little over-the-top, but that’s what makes it so charming. It kind of reminded me of the movie Knight and Day in the sense that it […]

Review: Time Served by Julianna Keyes

Review: Time Served by Julianna Keyes

I have mixed feelings about Time Served. Halfway in, I would’ve sworn it was a 5-star read, but the character development dropped off a bit in the second half, so that prevented me from loving the book more. Rachel Moser grew up in a trailer park, though you’d never know it by looking at her. […]

Review: Bad News Cowboy by Maisey Yates

Review: Bad News Cowboy by Maisey Yates

Bad News Cowboy is book #3 in Maisey Yates’s Copper Ridge series, which is about the Garrett family in Copper Ridge, OR. I loved the first two books, Part Time Cowboy and Brokedown Cowboy, but Bad News Cowboy is my least favorite of the series thus far. While the general quality of the writing itself […]

Review: Midnight Lily by Mia Sheridan

Review: Midnight Lily by Mia Sheridan

Well, I guess it was bound to happen eventually. I finally read a Mia Sheridan book that I didn’t like. I’ve read so many of her books and adored most of them, but I don’t recommend this one. (A note about the audio version: I can’t see myself ever rereading this, so I’ve returned it […]

Review: Stuck-Up Suit by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward

Review: Stuck-Up Suit by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward

This would have been a 4- or 5-star review if the story had ended halfway through. But then the plot took a huge twist, so it’s a 3-star review from me. Graham is an arrogant jerk. He’s also a successful businessman. When he takes the subway one morning, he accidentally leaves behind his phone, which is […]

Review: Must Love Cowboys by Cheryl Brooks

Review: Must Love Cowboys by Cheryl Brooks

I had a lot of trouble finishing this book. If I hadn’t read the previous books in the series, I probably would have abandoned this and not finished. But since I had read the others and liked them, I figured I’d stick with this one. I finished it, but didn’t love it at all. Tina […]

Review: Taking It Off by Claire Kent

Review: Taking It Off by Claire Kent

I started reading Taking It Off with the expectation that it would be definitely sexy, and maybe light, fun, and sort of fluffy. It’s marketed as a romance for fans of Magic Mike, after all. What I got from this book was so much more. Taking It Off turned out to be a deeply emotional […]
