It’s why I couldn’t leave you alone when you came back into my life.” Hawke Therrien is an ice hockey player who is leading the life people expect him to live; play hockey and have good times […]

Book review: A Thousand Boy Kisses ~ Tillie Cole

Book review: A Thousand Boy Kisses ~ Tillie Cole

It has been three days. Three days since I’ve read A Thousand Boy Kisses by Tillie Cole. And still, every sad song I hear on the radio brings me back to Rune and Poppy, almost making me cry again. I’ve read Tillie’s other books, and know she can write beautiful stories with the use of normal words, but A Thousand […]

Book review: Slave to the Rhythm ~ Jane Harvey-Berrick

Book review: Slave to the Rhythm ~ Jane Harvey-Berrick

Slave to the Rhythm by Jane Harvey-Berrick is the first book in her new ‘Rhythm series’. Having read and love her other books, the synopsis from this book intrigued me, I was wondering what this story would bring. The tale of Ash and Laney is beautiful and brutal, I highly recommend it. “Dancing was everything to me and I’d lost […]

Book review: Three ~ E.S. Carter

Book review: Three ~ E.S. Carter

Three is my very first book by author E.S. Carter. Some of my friends keep talking about her books and how much they love them, so I decided to give her latest a chance. I’m so glad I did. It’s a sweet book about real people with real struggles and emotions, trying to figure out how their relationship could work […]

Book review: Whiskey Neat ~ Lani Lynn Vale

Book review: Whiskey Neat ~ Lani Lynn Vale

Whiskey Neat by Lani Lynn Vale is the first book in her new series, ‘the Uncertain Saints MC’. It’s more of a romantic suspense then just a romance book. It has all the author’s normal ingredients, a rough, handsome hero, a sweet heroine and a storyline with a lot of action. Since this is the first book in a new […]

Book review: Baby, You’re Mine ~ Fiona Davenport

Book review: Baby, You’re Mine ~ Fiona Davenport

Baby, You’re Mine is the first book I’ve read written by Fiona Davenport. Some of my friends are addicted to ‘Oops, pregnancy books’, so when I read the blurb from Baby, You’re Mine I knew I had to give this author and novella a chance. I’m glad I did, it’s a quick, sweet and steamy read. “I wrapped my arms […]

Book review: Crying Wolf ~ Rochelle Paige

Book review: Crying Wolf ~ Rochelle Paige

One of my ‘guilty-pleasures’ when it comes to reading romance books are stories about shifters. The men are tough, over-the-top Alphas, the women are sassy and the love/chemistry is instant. Crying Wolf by Rochelle Paige is an enjoyable shifter story, but I do wish it was longer, to do the characters and their story more justice. “He was six and a […]

Book review: A Reason to Live ~ C.P. Smith

Book review: A Reason to Live ~ C.P. Smith

C.P. Smith is one of my go-to authors whenever I’m in the mood for a story with an Alpha and a woman who can handle him. A Reason to Live is the third book in the ‘Reason series’, and takes us back to Trails End, the small Alaskan town introduced in A Reason to Kill, the previous book in the […]

Book review + Excerpt: Out of Focus ~ L.B. Simmons

Book review + Excerpt: Out of Focus ~ L.B. Simmons

We’ve met Cassie, Spencer’s best friend, in Under the Influence. Out of Focus tells her story, and sheds a whole new light on the party loving, controlling girl. Although the subject is though and heartbreaking, I’ve enjoyed reading this book. “It’s only a matter of time before my fictional strength wears out—when I’m no longer hidden safely inside my protective […]

Book review: Ten Thousand Words ~ Kelli Jean

Book review: Ten Thousand Words ~ Kelli Jean

Ten Thousand Words is my first book by Kelli Jean. The blurb intrigued me and I just had to read the whole book, to read about Xanthe, Oliver, and the plot twist. The book took me by surprise.  I adore the author’s writing style, the realness of the book, and I will definitely pick up other books written by Kelli […]
