Review: Mentor by Opal Carew, Avery Aster, and Jayne Rylon

Review: Mentor by Opal Carew, Avery Aster, and Jayne Rylon

Mentor is book #4 in the Penthouse Pleasures series, but can be read as a standalone. Oh how I wanted to love Mentor, but unfortunately this one missed the mark for me. Most of the book felt so random, like the authors were throwing the erotic romance kitchen sink at the plot. Elle works in […]

Review: Joran by Susan Hayes

Review: Joran by Susan Hayes

What a fun book! I love a good alien romance and Joran by Susan Hayes delivers. A series called Star-Crossed Alien Mail Order Brides has got to be amazing, right? The planet of Pyros is in trouble. Males outnumber females by a huge margin, leaving the future of the throne in peril. Prince Joran is […]

Review: So Sweet by Rebekah Weatherspoon

Review: So Sweet by Rebekah Weatherspoon

Where to begin? 😖 I see this author recommended a lot and I enjoyed her novella Fit. So Sweet sounded like a light, fluffy read—but it didn’t really turn out to be that. It’s heavy on the smut for sure, but without much substance or emotion to back it up. Kayla has been laid off […]

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: 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: Snowed In with the Bad Boy by Sylvia Pierce

Review: Snowed In with the Bad Boy by Sylvia Pierce

Snowed In with the Bad Boy by Sylvia Pierce packs quite a punch. It’s sexy, insanely hot, surprisingly tender, and I loved everything about it. It’s Christmas Eve, but former black ops soldier Ronan Steel has no desire to celebrate. Alone in his cabin in the Rocky Mountains–with no one but his faithful dog, Bella, […]
