{review} Corrupt (Devil’s Night #1) by Penelope Douglas

{review} Corrupt (Devil’s Night #1) by Penel..

What an edgy, sexy, gritty and enthralling read. By 1/4 of the way through I was fascinated by the dynamics of Rika and Michael. This book was exactly the vibe I was looking for. There was an obvious push and pull with hero and heroine, there was a bit of mystery, there was danger, there was really heavy sexual tension. It had all the elements for me. When we first met Michael and Rika they knew […]

{ARC Review} Shadow Faerie (Creepy Hollow #8) by Rachel Morgan

{ARC Review} Shadow Faerie (Creepy Hollow #8) by R..

  This is the 8th book in the Creepy Hollow series, yet Ms. Morgan still makes this world and it’s characters feel fresh.  She can still surprise me and she manages to keep me glued to every page.  This is no small feat…keeping readers enchanted for this long takes great writing, creative plots, and characters who capture your heart.  Rachel Morgan manages all of this and then some.  I, for one, am already mourning this […]

{Review} Save Me by Logan Chance

{Review} Save Me by Logan Chance

  For those of you who know me, you won’t be surprised that, even though this is the third book in this series, it’s the first one I’ve read.  But, as stand alone stories, that wasn’t an issue for me.  This is a series of novellas and, as such, I’m usually not sure if I’ll get enough depth from a story and the it’s characters with so few pages.  This book, however, surprised me…and it […]

Make sure you scroll all the way to the bottom for U.S. tour dates and to enter the awesome contest! Wow. My friends, Colleen Hoover has done it again. This book was all encompassing to me.

{Review} Boomerang Boyfriend by Chris Cannon

{Review} Boomerang Boyfriend by Chris Cannon

*Note:  This book was provided to The Book Hookup by the author but that did not in any way influence this review!   This book reminded me of two things…how angsty and drama-filled a teenager’s life can be and how sometimes life catches you by surprise.  Delia realizes, much to her chagrin, that her best friend’s brother, who she considered to be a jerk for many years, all of a sudden isn’t.  And, although at […]

{review} Vivid by Jessica Wilde

{review} Vivid by Jessica Wilde

I absolutely love stories where the hero is ex-military man. A man that has been wounded in all the ways you can think, a man who is damaged, but then meets that one special person, and slowly, very slowly he begins to heal. I will never tire of this; I think my heart loves the journey of mending. I love to see these heroes and heroines come out of their tragedies even stronger, and especially […]

{review} Exploited (Zero Day #1) by A. Meredith Wa..

I always love a good romantic suspense so when I read this synopsis it totally caught my eye. I quickly dug in and while it was easy to follow, I soon found the plot a bit too unrealistic, it was almost cringeworthy coincidental, and I did not like the heroine. BUT! What did I like? Mason. Oh, I loved Mason. Mason deserves a relationship, he is such a perfect hero. Smart, hot, badass, an FBI agent, […]

{top shelf review} Loving the White Liar by Kate Stewart

{top shelf review} Loving the White Liar by Kate S..

The feels, that is what made this book AMAZING. I had all of them. I loved this story so very much! The conflict in Loving the White Liar was quite good, something a little different which was so refreshing. I think, for me, what I loved about this was how it made me feel. The connection between Jayden and Hillary was so intense, and that intensity was felt on so many different levels. Obviously it […]
