Book review + excerpt: In Harmony ~ Emma Scott

Book review + excerpt: In Harmony ~ Emma Scott

When I pick a new book to read, stories about young people in their late teens are not the first ones I pick. But when Emma Scott announces she’s writing a Young Adult story, of course I can’t say no to it. Yes, Willow and Isaac are young, but sad circumstances made them wise beyond their years. I love the […]

Book review + excerpt: Rough Ride ~ Kristen Ashley

Book review + excerpt: Rough Ride ~ Kristen Ashley

One of my most re-read books by Kristen Ashley is Own The Wind, the first book in the ‘Chaos Series’. It tells the story of Tabby and Shy, and while I love them together, I hated Shy for the way he treated Rosalie. Although Rosalie played a small part, she made a big impression on me and I always kept […]

Book review: Keeping It ~ Rachel Robinson

Book review: Keeping It ~ Rachel Robinson

I have a love/hate relationship with Rachel Robinson’s books. I love the stories and the characters, but the angst… Sometimes I want to scream, sometimes I want to cry, but I still keep reading them. I think I’m a bit of an angst-addict. Keeping It however, is very different. Yes, it’s set in the same world as the ‘Real SEAL […]

Book review: Bentley ~ Melanie Moreland

Book review: Bentley ~ Melanie Moreland

Sometimes I’m having a day where things get a bit complicated… You know, kids misbehaving, cats throwing up over your fav suede boots, hubby late from work… You get me, right? And after a day like that all I want is to chill and read a book (preferably with a glass of Riesling). But nothing angst-y or heartbreaking, just a […]

Book review: Follow Me Back ~ A.L. Jackson

Follow Me Back tells the story of Kale and Hope, and both are not looking for love. He because he thinks its not for him, she because her life is complicated enough as it is. But as in other A.L. Jackson stories, these two deserve real love, and that’s what they get. “Ideas thrummed through my mind. The dangerous, dangerous […]

Book review + excerpt: Undefeated ~ Jane Harvey-Berrick & Stuart Reardon

Book review + excerpt: Undefeated ~ Jane Harvey-Berrick & Stuart Reardon

For some reason I’m not that much into romance books written by men, but when I heard Stuart Reardon was teaming up with one of my favorite authors – Jane Harvey-Berrick – I knew I had to read the result of their collaboration. Undefeated is an honest and real story, I love it. “Nick’s determination was a living thing, pushing […]

Book review: Deeper ~ M. Malone & Nana Malone

Book review: Deeper ~ M. Malone & Nana Malone

A few weeks back I’ve read Deep, which ended in a huge cliffhanger. Luckily, the wait for Deeper wasn’t that long, because I really needed second part of Rafe and Diane’s story. Part One was fast-paced and all, Part Two is even better. “He didn’t know what the fuck she was doing, but he was going to get her. Because […]

Book review: The Art of Us ~ Hilaria Alexander

Book review: The Art of Us ~ Hilaria Alexander

One moment, one kiss. Is it just a kiss, or does it mean much more? The Art of Us tells the story of Lena and Amos, who did have one moment two years ago. Nothing came of it back then, but now they might have a second chance. I love this story! “Too intense. Too strong. It was too much. […]

There’s love and an unsolved missing teens case, I need to know more! “The light touch of […]

Book review: The Bitterroot Inn ~ Devney Perry

Would you be able to move on when your last relationship ended in absolute horror? Would you have the courage to take a chance at a new love? Since I met Maisy in The Coppersmith Farmhouse I’ve always been curious about her and her young son. The Bitterroot Inn tells the story of Maisy finding her happy with a good […]
