Book review: Barking Up The Wrong Tree ~ Juliette Poe

Book review: Barking Up The Wrong Tree ~ Juliette Poe

I know Sawyer Bennett mostly for her sexy stories, the Wicked books. As Juliette Poe however, she writes different stories. Still with sexy times and lots of chemistry, but far less naughty and no sex club in sight. Barking Up The Wrong Tree tells the story of Laken and Jake, small-town-girl and city-boy. I love their story, and I want […]

Book review: Dirty Filthy Rich Love ~ Laurelin Paige

Book review: Dirty Filthy Rich Love ~ Laurelin Paige

Sabrina isn’t sure about her feelings for the man, and with the revelations at the end of the previous book, she doesn’t know what make of him either. I felt the same way as her, but I […]

Book review: Ready to Run ~ Lauren Layne

Book review: Ready to Run ~ Lauren Layne

Prejudices and not everything is what it seems to be. Ready to Run by Lauren Layne is about two people from two different worlds, but are they that different? The beginning of the book felt a bit ‘crowded’ to me, but I ended the book with a big smile, I’ve enjoyed it very much. “Hey, Country Boy,” she called after […]

Cooper and Violet know each other for a long time, and are close friends. But in Most Valuable Playboy – Lauren Blakely’s latest book – their friendship starts to change… I love a good from-friends-to-lovers story, and that’s what this book is. A sweet, sexy sports romance told through Cooper’s eyes, I love it! “I’m an everything woman.” She lets […]

Book review: Muscle Memory ~ Stylo Fantôme

Book review: Muscle Memory ~ Stylo Fantôme

It’s been a few days since I’ve finished Muscle Memory, and I can’t stop thinking about the story. I know Stylo Fantôme for her wild stories, kick-ass heroines (with a little lack of self-preservation) and flawed heroes, but Muscle Memory is something else. It’s beautiful, romantic and full of feelings, I simply love this heartbreaking story. “Her heart was breaking […]

Book review: The Lucky Heart ~ Devney Perry

From the moment I read about Felicity and Silas in the first book of the Jamison Valley series, I was curious about their story. To be honest, I was a bit disappointed that book two did wasn’t about them, but now Devney Perry finally gives us their story in The Lucky Heart. “We used to be friends once. Maybe we […]

Book review: Life Plus One ~ Rachel Robinson

Sometimes I need sweet book, sometimes I want a sexy story and sometimes I want a book that makes me feel all kinds of emotions. Life Plus One by Rachel Robinson falls into the last category. I know this author for her throat-punch, angst-y books, and with Life Plus One she surely doesn’t disappoint. I love it. “That’s the thing […]

Well, that’s what I do. The Dark of the Moon is the first book in the ‘Chronicles of Lunos Series’ by E.S. Bell and introduces the […]
