Excerpt: Defenseless ~ Corinne Michaels

  Chapter 1 Mark “Everyone locked and loaded?” Liam Dempsey draws our attention. There’s a part of me that wants to slap him, but then I remember: I’m the guest. It would probably be frowned upon. “Ready,” Jackson says and bangs the magazine into the rifle. “What’s the plan?” “We have the location where Aaron’s being held captive. We’ll split […]

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 […]
