{Review} Devil’s Cut (The Bourbon Kings #3) by JR Ward

{Review} Devil’s Cut (The Bourbon Kings #3) ..

  This is exactly what I wanted…the ending that made my heart happy even though I’m so sad to see this story come to a close.  I waited a long time to begin this book because I wanted to have time to savor the story and enjoy every word.  And I’m so glad I did.  I also chose to listen to it instead of reading (something I don’t do often) because I had listened to […]

{top shelf review} Left Drowning (Left Drowning #1) by Jessica Park

{top shelf review} Left Drowning (Left Drowning #1..

Oh my heart…I loved this story. I had all of the feels. Left Drowning is exactly the book I am always craving. Emotional, scarred pasts, brooding, romance, sexy times! and of course the best part, the healing. Ms. Park’s writing was effortless and I was able to slide right into this world and become part of their lives for a while and it was glorious. Both Christopher and Blythe (gah, I love her name) had […]

{ARC Review} Man Hands by Sarina Bowen and Tanya Eby

{ARC Review} Man Hands by Sarina Bowen and Tanya E..

  I giggled all the way through this book!  What a funny, sweet, sexy ride!  Sarina Bowen is a go-to author for me…if she writes it, I will read it.  I’ve never read anything by Tanya Eby but, lucky for me, she and Sarina make a perfect pair.  This joint venture was a breath of fresh air.  The characters were fun, and didn’t take themselves to seriously, and the story line was definitely unique. Brynn, […]

{top shelf review} Unloved by Katy Regnery

This story. This absolutely beautiful love story. It spoke to me and touched me. The writing was beautiful, almost magical in the way the words wrapped around each other on the page to draw me in. I loved both Cassidy and Brynn. I loved them as individuals, and I’m pretty sure angels sang when they shared their feelings. I felt, yes, I’m telling you, my heart felt both the anguish and pain, as well as the […]

{Review} Rush (Rush #1) by Emma Scott

  What happens when two people, grieving for two completely different reasons, are brought together? Well, it’s a roller coaster of emotion…one you can’t, and don’t want to, step away from even for a minute.  This story touched me deeply and has undoubtedly earned a place on my favorites list.     Noah, a lover of extreme sports and all adventure, finds himself blind after a cliff diving accident.  Charlotte, a Juilliard-trained violinist has lost […]

{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 […]
