Book review: Anson ~ Alta Hensley & Maggie Ryan

Book review: Anson ~ Alta Hensley & Maggie Ryan

Anson in the third and last book in ‘the Black Stallion Trilogy’ by Maggie Ryan and Alta Hensley, and tells the story of the remaining brother, Anson. Given the two previous books in the series I had a few ideas about Anson, Natalia and their story, but the authors surprised me. I like it! “Hold on, I swear I’m coming […]

Book review: Extra Credit ~ Poppy Dunne

Book review: Extra Credit ~ Poppy Dunne

One of my favorite sub-genres in the romance genre is the single parent category. I love to read about a parent who takes care of his/her kid(s) and finds new love. In Extra Credit by Poppy Dunne we have a single dad who falls for the drama teacher of his 10-year-old daughter. Add to that a bit crazy ex and […]

Book review + excerpt: Hero Hair ~ Rachel Robinson

Book review + excerpt: Hero Hair ~ Rachel Robinson

Hero Hair is the second book in ‘the Real Seal Series’ by Rachel Robinson. Like her other books it tells a story about real people dealing with real issues in circumstances they can’t control. The blurb of Hero Hair intrigued me; two total commitment-phobes finding each other and trying to make it work… I love the story of Teala and […]

Book review: Coastal Elite ~ Kate Canterbary

Book review: Coastal Elite ~ Kate Canterbary

I know Kate Canterbary for her ‘Walsh Series’, the interconnected books about the Walsh Family. I like the sweet books with a dose of emotion, angst and great characters. Coastal Elite is the author’s latest book and tells the story of Jordan and April. It has a bit of a twist and I like it. “The world, it wasn’t black […]

Blush for Me is the third book in ‘the Fusion Series’ by Kristen Proby, and continues the stories of the owners of popular restaurant Seduction. Blush for Me focuses on wine connoisseur Kat and Mac, a man she meets while traveling for business. I like their story, but given the two previous books I expected a bit more. “Are you […]

Book review: Juggernaut ~ K.S. Adkins

Book review: Juggernaut ~ K.S. Adkins

Juggernaut is my very first book by K.S. Adkins. Since I’ve read it a month ago, I’ve pick up some of the author’s other books, and I can now tell you Juggernaut is different from her normal books. It’s much funnier, I would even call it a Romantic Comedy. And the best part? Lots of the funny scenes throughout the […]

Book review + excerpt: The Deep End ~ Kristen Ashley

One of my favorite authors is Kristen Ashley. I just love her sassy leading ladies and their Alpha men. With The Deep End, the first book in her new ‘Honey Series’, Kristen Ashley walks away from her usual writing. Yes, Olivier is still an alpha hero, but he also craves submission. Going in I was very curious how this all […]
