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: 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: 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: Seducing His Student by London Hale

Review: Seducing His Student by London Hale

I’ve enjoyed London Hale’s books in the past, but unfortunately, Seducing His Student missed the mark for me. It’s billed as a taboo romance–which it is, in a sense–but elements of insta-love and a too neatly wrapped-up ending didn’t work for me. College student Samantha works at the local coffee shop when she’s not working […]

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: Drilled by Opal Carew

Review: Drilled by Opal Carew

It pains me to rate an Opal Carew book so low. Normally, I avoid billionaire heroes, but since Carew is one of my favorite authors, I wanted to give it a try. Unfortunately, this just didn’t work for me. Drilled takes the construction worker trope and gives it a twist. In this novella, Danielle (Danni) […]

Review: Stay Close by Alexa Riley

Review: Stay Close by Alexa Riley

Stay Close hits many of Alexa Riley’s trademark tropes: barely legal virgin heroine, love and lust at first sight, completely smitten hero, accelerated courtship, and instant HEA. For me, this is one of Riley’s better books since it tones down the hero’s possessiveness and focuses more on his desire to protect the heroine. But never […]
