Book review: Feyness ~ E.S. Carter

Book review: Feyness ~ E.S. Carter

E.S. Carter, what the heck have you done with E.S. Carter? I know this author for her sweet books like Three and Thirteen, but with Feyness she goes a completely different way. The book is anything but sweet – yes there is love, but it’s love with a dark edge. However, I have enjoyed reading this book and I’m curious […]

Book review: Not About Love ~ Hilaria Alexander

Book review: Not About Love ~ Hilaria Alexander

Last year I discovered a for me new author, Hilaria Alexander. After having read her book FU Cancer, I immediately read her other books. I loved them, especially This Love, which was set in Amsterdam, not far from where I live. Not About Love tells the story of Ally and Boyd, who are introduced as side-characters in This Love. This […]

Book review: Ravage ~ Tillie Cole

Book review: Ravage ~ Tillie Cole

Ravage is the latest book in Tillie Cole’s ‘Scarred Souls series’. Like the other stories in the series it’s raw, gritty and brutal, but written in the style I love the author’s books for. Ravage tells the story of Valentine (194) and Zoya. “I became a ghost in the night. I became the deliverer of death. I was torture. I […]

Book review: Kayden / Simon ~ Alexandra Ivy & Laura Wright

The novella Kayden/Simon – part of ‘the 1001 Dark Nights series’ – are the first stories I’ve read by Alexandra Ivy and Laura Wright. Set in the world of ‘the Bayou Heat series’, the separate stories tell the tales of Kayden and Simon; two men who meet their women in a very different way. Kayden is looking for answers and […]

It’s no big deal.” Cami is single and happily working with her best friends as a part-owner of Seduction. For as long as she can remember she’s been in love with Landon, the older brother of […]

Book review: Man of Honor ~ Sarah O’Rourke

Book review: Man of Honor ~ Sarah O’Rourke

A series that I enjoy very much is ‘the Passion in Paradise series’ by Sarah O’Rourke. The men are Alpha (a tiny bit over the top) and the McKinnon sisters are sassy, make their men fight for them. Throughout the books about the elder sisters, the horrific ordeal of the youngest McKinnon sister – Honor – is a returning topic, […]

Book review: Perfectly Imperfect ~ Harper Sloan

Book review: Perfectly Imperfect ~ Harper Sloan

Last year I’ve read Perfectly Imperfect by Harper Sloan for the first time, and after rereading it, I still love it. Like most women – including myself – Willow has issues with her appearance and her body and listens to that little voice in her head. I love the inspiring message this book gives; love yourself. “Today, I choose to […]

Book review: Something So Right ~ Natasha Madison

Book review: Something So Right ~ Natasha Madison

One of the things I like about reviewing books is discovering new authors. Some debut authors are good, some need some practice, but I like reading their stories. Natasha Madison is such an author. Something So Right is her very first book, and she surprised me in a very good way. I love this book and I might have reread […]

Book review: Rock Wedding ~ Nalini Singh

Book review: Rock Wedding ~ Nalini Singh

One of my favorite books of last year was Rock Redemption by Nalini Singh. It was beautiful and heartbreaking, like other books by this author. At the end a small hint was given about the broken relationship between Abe and Sarah, and it made me curious. Rock Wedding gives us their story. “She’d never wanted the divorce. She’d wanted Abe […]

Book review: An Act of Obsession ~ K.C. Lynn

I’m now Lia Kay—scarred beyond repair and fearful everything.” Sophie is a lonely young woman on the run. One sweet act of kindness as a teenager has caused her nothing […]
