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 […]

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 […]

Book review + Excerpt: The Bad Ones ~ Stylo Fantôme

“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. […]

Book review + Excerpt: Bounty ~ Kristen Ashley

Book review + Excerpt: Bounty ~ Kristen Ashley

One of my favorite books series is by far the ‘Colorado Mountain series’ by Kristen Ashley. I’ve read every book of the series at least a dozen times. Bounty is the latest book in the series. Throughout the previous books, Deke Hightower was the silent lone wolf, present but a bit of a mystery. Bounty finally gives us his story, […]

Book review + Excerpt: Remembering Everly ~ J.L. Berg

Book review + Excerpt: Remembering Everly ~ J.L. Berg

A couple of months ago I’ve read Forgetting August, the first part of the Lost & Found Duet. This book ended in a cliffhanger, and Remembering Everly is the conclusion to the story of August and Everly. I love it, it’s all I hoped for. “Through the years, we’d lost each other over and over—to greed, loss of trust, and […]
