Review: The Chateau by Tiffany Reisz

Review: The Chateau by Tiffany Reisz

First, I need to mention that this book is the one that finally ended my romance slump. My last romance review was back at the end of January—about 4.5 months ago! I’ve DNFed so many books these past few months, I can’t even tell you how many. I should also start by saying that although […]

Review: The Trouble with Mistletoe by Jill Shalvis

Review: The Trouble with Mistletoe by Jill Shalvis

The Trouble with Mistletoe by Jill Shalvis is a perfect holiday read. It’s a combination of sassy humor, sexy times, and heartfelt moments. Willa Davis is shocked when someone from her past walks into her pet store, South Bark Mutt Shop. Keane Winters stood her up years ago, back in high school. That’s bad enough, […]

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: 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, […]

Count on a Cowboy by Patricia Thayer is part of Harlequin’s American Romance line, which falls under the Home and Family category. This isn’t the type of book 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: Hollywood Dirt by Alessandra Torre

Review: Hollywood Dirt by Alessandra Torre

Hollywood Dirt by Alessandra Torre explores some of my favorite tropes: opposites attract, enemies to lovers, and country mouse/city mouse. It’s a definite slow burn romance and for me, the progression of the relationship dragged a bit before hitting warp speed at the end. However, the author’s writing style made me want to keep reading. […]

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: 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 […]
