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 […]

Book review: Out of Plans ~ Stylo Fantôme

Book review: Out of Plans ~ Stylo Fantôme

Early October I’ve read a great book, Best Laid Plans by Stylo Fantôme. It’s not your conventional love story – boy and girl meet, love, some trouble, happily ever after – but an absolutely great read I adore. The story ends in a cliffhanger, and Out of Plans is the sequel I couldn’t wait to get my hands on. The story […]

Book review: Sweet Soul ~ Tillie Cole

Book review: Sweet Soul ~ Tillie Cole

One of my go-to authors is Tillie Cole. While all very different, her series manage to move me, to make me both sad and happy, feeling everything her characters are going through. Normally, I’m not a big fan of college romance since I’m getting a little older, but for ‘the Sweet Home series’ I’m gladly making an exception. Sweet Soul […]
