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 […]

Book review: Best Kase Scenario ~ Layla Frost

Book review: Best Kase Scenario ~ Layla Frost

Best Kase Scenario is my first book written by Layla Frost. Given the blurb, I had my expectations, but this book turned out different, in a very positive way. I like the author’s writing style and the choices she makes for her characters. “Balls. I was in trouble. Speeding in my piece of shit car, I checked the clock. I […]

Book review: FU Cancer ~ Hilaria Alexander

Book review: FU Cancer ~ Hilaria Alexander

FU Cancer is the first book I’ve read by Hilaria Alexander. Beforehand I wondered myself how romance and this horrible illness would go together without a cryfest. Surprisingly, FU Cancer isn’t a sad and painful story. Lucy – the main character – doesn’t break after her diagnosis, but takes on the fight full of life, funny t-shirts and other, colorful […]

Book review: Searching for Mine ~ Jennifer Probst

Book review: Searching for Mine ~ Jennifer Probst

Searching for Mine by Jennifer Probst is the new novella in the ‘Searching For series’. It’s written in the style I like Jennifer Probst for, sweet and sometimes a little dramatic. Going in, I knew Searching for Mine was going to be a short read, but I wish it was longer in order to do the characters more justice. “Mr. […]

Book review: Saving Steele ~ Anne Jolin

Book review: Saving Steele ~ Anne Jolin

Anne Jolin is known for her Alpha men and sweet heroines. Saving Steele is the fifth book in the ‘Rock Falls series’ and has all the right ingredients; an Alpha male, a sweet heroine and a good, not over-the-top storyline. This book lived up to my expectation, I’ve enjoyed it. “They say people’s hearts skip a beat when they fall […]
