Book review + excerpt: Tortured ~ Nicole Williams

Since I’ve read the blurb of Tortured I’ve been a bit scared to start this story. I’ve read other books by Nicole Williams, and I know what her work can do to my poor feelings. Tortured tells the heartbreaking story of Camryn and Brecken, and I was right to be scared for their book. However, I love it at the […]

Book review + excerpt: Tempt the Boss ~ Natasha Madison

Tempt the Boss is the fourth book by Natasha Madison, and tells the story of a woman finding love again after her marriage fell apart.

Book review + excerpt: Hero Hair ~ Rachel Robinson

Hero Hair is the second book in ‘the Real Seal Series’ by Rachel Robinson. Like her other books it tells a story about real people dealing with real issues in circumstances they can’t control. The blurb of Hero Hair intrigued me; two total commitment-phobes finding each other and trying to make it work… I love the story of Teala and […]

Excerpt “Why do you stay if it’s so hard to live here?” I asked. Beckett took a drag from his cigarette, as if he were buying time before answering. “Brooklyn, born and raised,” he said finally, still not looking at me. “Where else would I go anyway? Different city, same struggle.” He finally brought his gaze to mine. “So you’re […]
