Book review + excerpt: The Bachelor Auction ~ Rachel van Dyken

The Bachelor Auction is the first book in the new ‘the Bachelors of Arizona series’ by Rachel Van Dyken. It’s a funny, modern day version of one of my favorite fairytales, Cinderella. And of course it’s in true Rachel style; complete with manipulative older people, evil sisters, annoying brothers and over-the-top situations. I’ve enjoyed reading it! “They were family and […]

Book review: Sweetest Taboo ~ J. Kenner

Sweetest Taboo is the final book in the S.I.N. series by J. Kenner. This book starts where the previous book – Hottest Mess – left off, and takes the reader right back in the world of Jane and Dallas. Since it’s an ongoing story, these books needs to be read in order and I really like them. “Their eyes met […]

Book review + excerpt: Mine For Now ~ Erika Kelly

A romance subgenre I don’t read too often is the Young Adult genre. A lot of these books are set in college, and those days are long gone for me as a 38-year-old. But every now and then I like to read about college-life; with all its struggles, drama’s and misunderstandings. Mine For Now by Erika Kelly is your typical […]

Release blitz: How to Catch an Heiress ~ Natalie Rios

  Excerpt Watching him squirm was fun, almost too much fun. A muscle in his jaw twitched and if his teeth were clenched any tighter, they would probably break. He oh-so-gently set my card down on the entryway table, as if it were a grenade that needed to be handled with great care. When his gaze met mine again, I […]

For some reasons I’m always a bit scared when I start a new Stylo Fantôme book. I enjoy her work, but sometimes the actions of her characters are a little too close to the edge of my comfort zone. Neighbors takes me to that edge, but I love it. “Boring simply wasn’t good enough anymore.” Good girl Katya is done […]

Book review: Outsider ~ Olivia Cunning

One of the first Rock star book series I’ve read after having joined the Dark Side – a.k.a. discovered the (erotic) romance genre – was ‘the Sinners on Tour series’ by Olivia Cunning. I love the Sinners men, their feisty women and their hot roads to a HEA. My favorite book in this series is Double Time, the story of Reagan, […]

Excerpt Five minutes later, the valet pulls up with my car. Genevieve raises an eyebrow. “A Bugatti?” I’m so impressed she can name the model that I practically jizz in my pants. “It’s the best.” She shakes her head, and I swear I hear her mutter something about rich men and their toys, but I don’t respond, too occupied with […]

Excerpt “Hey, Camryn. Did I forget something at your office?” he asks. “No, I just . . . I had some questions for you about tomorrow.” “Of course.
