Book review: Filthy English ~ Ilsa Madden-Mills

Book review: Filthy English ~ Ilsa Madden-Mills

One of my favorite reads of 2015 was Dirty English by Ilsa Madden-Mills. It was my first book by her, but I loved her writing, and the way she portrays her characters. Besides the main couple Declan and Elizabeth, Dax – Declan’s twin brother – really caught my attention. You could feel there was more to him than just the […]

Book review: Virtually Impossible ~ Lauren Stewart

“The last thing I needed to know was that Hayden Bennett was anything more than what he let me know. He could keep his secrets, and I’d keep mine. After all, our relationship would be a temporary, purely professional one.” Andi is a young woman with very few friends in life. A few years ago her then-boyfriend used her love […]

Book review: Up In Flames ~ Abbi Glines

Book review: Up In Flames ~ Abbi Glines

For some reason I just love a good villain in my romance books; their words, reasoning and actions intrigue me. One of my favorite female villains is Nan Dillon from ‘the Rosemary Beach series’ by Abbi Glines. Throughout the series Nan is the beautiful, cold-hearted bitch who takes what she wants without thinking about the feelings of the people around […]

Book review: Juked ~ M.E. Carter

Book review: Juked ~ M.E. Carter

One of the things I love about reviewing books is signing up to review a book by a – for me – unknown author. M.E. Carter is such an author for me. Juked is her latest book, and since one of the main characters is a single parent (for some reason I love books about single parents meeting their special […]

Book review: Luka ~ Jane Harvey-Berrick

Book review: Luka ~ Jane Harvey-Berrick

A couple of months ago I’ve read Slave To The Rhythm, the first book in ‘the Rhythm series’ by Jane Harvey-Berrick. Although the book told about the brutal reality of human trafficking, I loved the story and the romance between Ash and Laney, the main characters. One of the secondary characters being introduced is Luka, Ash’s best friend; a handsome, […]

Ten Thousand Lies is the second book in the story and tells the story of Ricki and Jami. The first book – Then Thousand Words – was a […]

Book review: Everywhere and Every Way ~ Jennifer Probst

And home.” Caleb Pierce is a hardworking man who works for the family construction company. After the death of his father he and his brothers find out the […]

Book review + excerpt: Dirty Love ~ Meghan March

After the ending of Dirty Girl, I couldn’t wait to start Dirty Love. The first book ended with a cliffhanger, and I needed to know Greer and Cav’s reaction to the whole situation, to see if their relationship and their feelings for each other were strong enough. “I want all the things I told him I wanted—the things I thought […]

Book review: Sweet Jayne ~ K. Webster

Book review: Sweet Jayne ~ K. Webster

Sweet Jayne by K. Webster is a bit different from my normal choice of books. I wouldn’t consider this a dark, romantic story in the traditional sense of the word. Yes, there’s love involved, but it’s much more than the love story of two people. It took me some time to get into the book, but I’ve ended up enjoying […]
