Book review: Dr. Strange Beard ~ Penny Reid

Book review: Dr. Strange Beard ~ Penny Reid

How is it for a person, to remember everything. Every spoken word, even from years ago. Dr. Strange Beard is the story of Roscoe Winston – one of the Winston siblings – and Simone Payton, who used to be friends… I love this book; the couple and the story! “I would not remember how warm she was or how her […]

Book review: Maddox ~ Melanie Moreland

Book review: Maddox ~ Melanie Moreland

Damaged, afraid of love, and all business… What happens when a guy like that actually falls in love? With a woman who has similar ‘issues’? Maddox tells the story of Maddox and Dee, who both don’t do love (or so they think). I love this stubborn couple, they both deserve so much more then they think they do. “To the […]

Book review + excerpt: Do Not Respond ~ M.R. Field

Book review + excerpt: Do Not Respond ~ M.R. Field

Office romances… I love them, two adults sneaking around the office, trying to hide what they’re doing. Maybe the fact I met my hubby at the office also plays a role (sorry for the personal information). Do Not Respond is the story of Letty and Cole, who don’t get along very well despite their long history. Mixing that with day-to-day […]

Book review: Blackburn ~ Brynne Asher

Book review: Blackburn ~ Brynne Asher

I’m not the biggest fan of Novellas (I always want more), but when a favorite author announces she’s writing one, how can I not read it. Blackburn is an office-romance, but with a Brynne Asher twist to it. I love Lillian, Gabe and their story. “I never get anything more than a frown in return. Or a furrowed brow. Or […]

Book review: Double Down ~ Alessandra Torre

Book review: Double Down ~ Alessandra Torre

Double Down picks up right where the first book in the Duet, Even Money, left off. And given how Even Money ended, you know this book won’t be an easy ride. But for Dario and Bell, it’s a fitting story; it fits with the dangerous world Dario lives in. I’ve enjoyed this roller-coaster read very much. “I wasn’t wrong. I […]

Book review: Almost Impossible ~ Nicole Williams

Book review: Almost Impossible ~ Nicole Williams

I know Nicole Williams mostly for her emotional stories, so when I learned she was working on a different kind of book, my inner book nerd was intrigued. Not that I don’t trust the author with writing another great story, but would I personally like it? Almost Impossible tells the story of Jade, who’s going to spend the summer with […]

Book review: A Wish for Us ~ Tillie Cole

Book review: A Wish for Us ~ Tillie Cole

Romantic stories about kids in their late teens – early twenties, I start to feel a bit old for them. But when one of your favorite authors announces she’s writing one, I just have to read it. Add to that the promise of a lot of emotions like one of my favorite books by her, you can do the math. […]

Book review: Even Money ~ Alessandra Torre

Book review: Even Money ~ Alessandra Torre

When you pick up a book by Alessandra Torre, you know what you get. Characters who live their lives by their rules, not caring what others might think. Even Money is not different. Bell and Dario appear to be a certain way, but there’s so much more to them then meets the eye. I need to know what happens next… […]

Book review: The Start of Something Good ~ Jennifer Probst

Book review: The Start of Something Good ~ Jennifer Probst

Guarded city-girl meets closed-off small-town boy. Do they even have a chance, or are they doomed from the start? The Start of Something Good tells the charming story of Mia and Ethan, who both don’t know what they really want, but who find love anyway. I love their story. “In that moment, he’d felt completely connected to her. Because he’d […]
