Book review: Until Death Do We Part ~ Fiona Davenport

Book review: Until Death Do We Part ~ Fiona Davenport

One of my ‘guilty pleasure’ authors at the moment is Fiona Davenport. Her books have way over-the-the-top Alpha’s, sassy leading ladies and the situations that the couples get themselves into…. I wouldn’t appreciate my hubby getting me pregnant without consulting me on the matter, but hey, this is fiction! Until Death Do We Part is the author’s latest book, and I […]

Book review: That One Day ~ Josie Wright

Book review: That One Day ~ Josie Wright

A couple of months ago I’ve read That One Night, the debut book by Josie Wright. It told the story of Frankie and Ben, from Frankie’s point of view. And although I had a few issues with the book, I really liked it. That One Day tells Ben’s side of the story. “Two hours ago, I was oblivious to what […]

Book review: Challenging Destiny ~ H.K. Abrahams

Book review: Challenging Destiny ~ H.K. Abrahams

One of the things I love about reading is discovering – for me – new authors. H.K. Abrahams is such an author. Challenging Destiny is her first and only book to this date and I very much hope she’ll continue writing. I’ve enjoyed reading this book. “The war between my heart and my brain couldn’t keep going on like that. […]

Book review: Hell On Heels ~ Anne Jolin

Book review: Hell On Heels ~ Anne Jolin

I know Anne Jolin for her Alpha books; protective Alpha men with a little rough edge falling for sweet, sassy women. Hell On Heels is her latest book, and it’s a little different from her other books. The pleasant writing style is the same, but the story is very different. However, I loved it. “My need to soothe the loneliness […]

Worth It All is the third book in the ‘McKinney Brothers series’ by Claudia Connor and tells the story of the youngest brother, JT. In the previous books he was the absent brother, the brother who lived far away from the family. Worth It All tells his story. “It was just looks and smiles and for some reason that was […]

Book review: Stolen Innocence ~ Melody Anne

Book review: Stolen Innocence ~ Melody Anne

I know Melody Anne for her sweet books, jerky Alpha’s who turn their ways for the women they fall in love with. Stolen Innocence is nothing like those books. Being the first part of the ‘Becoming Elena series’ it paints a brutal picture of human slavery. This story isn’t romantic in any way, and not for the faint of heart. “Sometimes, the […]

Book review: Thirteen ~ E.S. Carter

Book review: Thirteen ~ E.S. Carter

Last month I’ve read my first book by E.S. Carter – Three – and I loved it. A certain scene from that book still puts a smile on my face; the very funny kitchen conversation between Harry and Liam’s parents. Thirteen tells his sweet and hilarious story. “It all comes rushing back to me. Friday the 13th. Hospital. Operation. No […]

“Stupid little Dulcie,” he whispered, his breath hot against her lips. She held onto his wrists and glared at him, but didn’t try to pull away. His fingers got tighter. “So scared of the big bad wolf.” Con and Dulcie, two young people from the very opposites of small-town life. Where Constantine ‘Con’ Masters is the town’s golden boy, the […]

Book review: One With You ~ Sylvia Day

Book review: One With You ~ Sylvia Day

A certain trilogy introduced me to modern romance books, but another series got me truly hooked;–‘the Crossfire series’ by Sylvia Day. One With You is the fifth and last book in the series, giving us the conclusion to the story of Eva and Gideon that started with Bared To You. I adore Gideon and Eva, and their road to happiness. […]
