Book review: Mercury Striking ~ Rebecca Zanetti

Book review: Mercury Striking ~ Rebecca Zanetti

Since I’ve started watching ‘the Walking Death TV series’, books located in the apocalyptic world have my interest. While in a lot of the books morals have disappeared along with modern civilization – but that doesn’t take away from me enjoying those books. Mercury Striking is a story about surviving in a new, harsh environment where the lines between good […]

Book review: Defenseless ~ Corinne Michaels

Book review: Defenseless ~ Corinne Michaels

Having read the ‘Belonging Duet’ by Corinne Michaels some time ago – and having enjoyed it – I didn’t hesitate to pick up Defenseless. Add a hot former SEAL, a stubborn CIA agent, and an intriguing plot, I knew this book wouldn’t disappoint me. “Yes, Charleston, I want your help.” “Fuck you.” “Anytime, baby. All I need is a time […]

Book review: Time and Space ~ Rachel Robinson

Book review: Time and Space ~ Rachel Robinson

One of my favorite types of books is the ‘second-chance romance’. The story of two people who have loved before, got separated through circumstances and are now giving their love a second-chance. Time and Space by Rachel Robinson falls exactly into this category. It’s written in a beautiful and realistic way. I love it. “I was taken as a prisoner […]

Book review: Sebring ~ Kristen Ashley

Book review: Sebring ~ Kristen Ashley

Nick Sebring. I didn’t know what to think of him as the hero of a Kristen Ashley book. Nick is introduced in Knight, the first book of ‘the Unfinished Hero series’. To say he didn’t make a good first impression is an understatement. Throughout the series, Nick made an appearance now and again, he wasn’t a good man at best. […]

Book review: Wrong Side Girl ~ Julia Goda

Book review: Wrong Side Girl ~ Julia Goda

Always looking for new authors who write great stories, last year I came across the debut book of Julia Goda – Bent Not Broken. Although the writing style was very similar to the one of my favorite author, I did enjoy the book. Wrong Side Girl is Julia’s third book and in it the author has found her own author […]

Book review: Wicked Lust ~ Sawyer Bennett

Book review: Wicked Lust ~ Sawyer Bennett

Wicked Lust is the first book I’ve read by Sawyer Bennett and going in I knew it would be an easy, very naughty read. This book certainly didn’t disappoint, and it won’t be my last book written by this author. “And I have imagined it before. I’ve imagined all sorts of dirty things, read about even dirtier ones, but never […]

Book review: First Touch ~ Laurelin Paige

Book review: First Touch ~ Laurelin Paige

After reading First Touch I can honestly say the blurb doesn’t do the book any justice, it’s so much more, so many layers – dark cravings, dysfunctional friendships, coming to terms with one’s sexual needs. It’s written in the beautiful style I love Laurelin Paige’s books for, and for me it’s the perfect blend of suspense and the exploration of dark […]

Book review: Forgetting August ~ J.L. Berg

Book review: Forgetting August ~ J.L. Berg

When I read the blurb of Forgetting August I knew I just had to have this book; a hero with no memory of his former life, a heroine who tries so hard to forget him, it intrigued me. For me, Forgetting August meets all of my expectations; it has all the sweet, sizzling and angsty moments I want, with the […]

Book review: Subordination ~ Katie Ashley

Book review: Subordination ~ Katie Ashley

Knowing Katie Ashley for her sweet romance books I didn’t know what to think of her writing a story about a female Domme and a male submissive. I’m glad I have given this story a chance – although there are a lot of BDSM elements, it’s still a sweet book, one of the reasons I like Katie Ashley’s writing so […]

Book review: My Kind of Wonderful ~ Jill Shalvis

Book review: My Kind of Wonderful ~ Jill Shalvis

For some reason, this is actually the first book I’ve read written by Jill Shalvis. Some of my book friends adore her writing, and I finally understand why. Going in, I didn’t know what to expect, but this book pleasantly surprised me. It’s a sweet book, without too much angst and over-the-top situations, just how I need my reads every […]
