{review} Rocco (Ruin & Revenge #3) by Sarah Castille

{review} Rocco (Ruin & Revenge #3) by Sarah C..

I’ve loved the first 2 installments of the Ruin & Revenge Series by Sarah Castille, so when I was offered a chance to read Rocco’s story I was all over it. The chemistry between Gracie and Rocco was undeniable. I think the part I liked best was the fact that even though this was their second time around, there were no games. These two were so open about how attracted and special they were to each […]

{review} Inarticulate by Eden Summers

{review} Inarticulate by Eden Summers

The synopsis caught my attention right away (right after the beautiful cover, of course), because I’m always a sucker for a brooding and mysterious man. One that is confident with a subtle vulnerability. Oh, and totally hot doesn’t hurt either. So this review is a mixed bag for me. I liked the premise of the story, and I even liked the big “secret”, but the way it played out really didn’t work for me. hmph. […]

{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..

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 […]

{Review} Boarded by Love (Bellevue Bullies #1) by ..

  This was my first Toni Aleo book and I can see why she has a big following.  The writing was good and the characters were fun.  And, for anyone who’s read her other books, they get to meet up with previous characters and see how they’re doing – always exciting for those who’ve committed to a series of books.  This was my first, but that didn’t affect my enjoyment of the story.  And, even […]

{review} Finding Home by Lauren Baker and Bonnie D..

I’ve been drawn to this book for a while, but it was pulled at one point, but re-released recently. As soon as I saw it on Amazon I snatched it up and starting reading right away. However, a week later I finished it and I’m not sure how I want to rate it. Parts of it were good, and other parts…not so much. I will probably go with a 2.5-3 rating. I went into this […]

{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 […]

{pre-order promotion!} Before I Let Go by Marieke Nijkamp

{pre-order promotion!} Before I Let Go by Marieke ..

Marieke’s breakout debut novel, This Is Where It Ends, spent 63 weeks on the New York Times Young Adult hardcover list since publication. Much of that success is due to the YA community and the many bloggers and reviewers who championed the book. Marieke’s hotly anticipated sophomore novel, Before I Let Go, delivers in all the ways that her debut novel succeeded—emotional, haunting, gutsy, and relevant. But it’s also so much more than that. It’s personal. PRAISE FOR BEFORE I […]

{Review} Good Girl (Love Unexpectedly #2) by Laure..

  Another fun, sweet romance from Lauren Layne.  Once again I got exactly what I was expecting from this author…a sweet love story with a bit of heat, some great characters, and some humor to boot!  This is the kind of book that warms your heart and makes you smile. When Jenny, a music star and the country’s “darling” gets into some hot water that’s not of her own doing, she’s forced to hide out […]
