Review: Down by Contact by Santino Hassell

Review: Down by Contact by Santino Hassell

Down by Contact is the first book that I’ve read by Santino Hassell, but it definitely won’t be my last. Hassell’s highly readable writing style and realistic characters made this is a great read that I flew through. Down by Contact is an m/m, enemies-to-lovers story. New York Barons quarterback Simeon Boudreaux is a fan […]

Review: The Ones Who Got Away by Roni Loren

Review: The Ones Who Got Away by Roni Loren

The Ones Who Got Away by Roni Loren is the first romance novel I’ve ever read that centers around a school shooting. That might sound like an odd combination, but it makes sense when you think about it. The media named them The Ones Who Got Away: survivors of the Long Acre High School shooting, […]

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: 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 […]
