Book review: Black ~ Aria Cole

Book review: Black ~ Aria Cole

Every now and then I have to indulge myself with ‘guilty-pleasure’ reads; way over-the-top books with insta love, a ridiculous possessive Alpha and a young damsel in distress. Having read numerous of these books, I’m always open to new authors in this subgenre. Aria Cole is such an author. Although I have some issues with Black, for a first-time author […]

Book review + excerpt: Falling Under You ~ Laurelin Paige

“There are too many reasons why that would be a bad idea.” Enough said. Case closed. “Yes, there are,” he agreed. “Forget them.” Norma has come a long way. After her mother’s death her father turned out to be a horrible man, leaving Norma to raise her younger brother and sister. She’s a very driven woman, she has put herself […]

Book review + excerpt: Hetch ~ River Savage

Book review + excerpt: Hetch ~ River Savage

One of my favorite biker book series is ‘the Knight Rebels series’ by River Savage. Although it’s set in a biker world, the men treat their woman with love and respect, don’t treat them like dirt. When I heard the author was working on a whole new series – and this time involving members of a SWAT team – it […]

Book review: Fall Back Skyward ~ Autumn Grey

Book review: Fall Back Skyward ~ Autumn Grey

Fall Back Skyward is the latest book by Autumn Grey. For me, this is a new author so I was very curious going in. Second Chance stories are one of my favorites, and given the synopsis from this book I knew it was going the be heartbreaking. I wasn’t disappointed; I love the story and the authors writing style. “I’d […]

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 […]
