Evelyn still sparks something in Clancy and he is determined to find out what she is hiding… Read more »


Review: One Sexy Ride by Vivian Arend

Review: One Sexy Ride by Vivian Arend

Len is the quiet one of the Thompson Brothers. For years he’s been secretly (or maybe not so secretly) wanting his little sister’s best friend, Janey. Janey has always wanted Len but whenever she hints at wanting a relationship with him, he shies away. Janey has pretty much given up on Len when he changes his mind and decides that he wants to be in a relationship with Janey. I’m always a sucker for the “falling for sister’s friend” trope….

Review: The Best Kind of Trouble by Lauren Dane

Review: The Best Kind of Trouble by Lauren Dane

It’s been awhile since I’ve read a contemporary romance novel in a day. I’ve been in a romance funk and nothing has really pulled me out of it. When I started reading The Best Kind of Trouble, I knew to expect a sexy hero but Paddy Hurley exceeded all of my expectations. I barely remember him and his brothers (except for Damien) from the Lush series so I went into this book with no preconceived notions. I enjoyed this book… Read more »


Review: Rocky Ride by Vivian Arend

Review: Rocky Ride by Vivian Arend

Rocky Ride, the first book in the Thompson and Sons,  is a spin-off of the Six Pack Ranch series, which I haven’t read. I had no problem following the plot but I was a little loss when characters from the Six Pack Ranch was mentioned or introduced. A little background info would have helped in some situations. Rocky Ride started off smoking hot. Mitch and Anna hooking it up on the side of the road. Woo!! Hawt! And the first half of the… Read more »


Early Review: The Highlander Next Door by Janet Chapman

Early Review: The Highlander Next Door by Janet Chapman

Usually I start my reviews with a nice little synopsis of the two main characters before going on to give my feelings about the book. With The Highlander Next Door I am going to break away from my usual format and just dive in. I loved this series and was very excited for Niall’s story because who doesn’t love a twelveth century highlander trying to navigate twenty first century dating? The problem with this book can be summed up in… Read more »

Ranting and Rambling: Couple of DNF Reviews

I hate DNFing a book because I  always hope that every book that I read will be the bomb dot com. But that isn’t always the case. Shelter Me by Catherine Mann (reviewed by Ellie) It’s been a long time since I found myself unable to finish a book but Shelter Me was not a fun read. I liked the idea behind the story and found the beginning to be very creative opening from the point of view of a… Read more »


Review: Taste of Darkness by Katie Reus

Review: Taste of Darkness by Katie Reus

I really enjoyed the first book in this series, Darkness Awakened, and was excited that Drake — the dragon shape-shifter who was rescued in book 1, was the hero of this one. Drake is pretty much a mystery because to the preternatural world, dragon shape-shifters no longer existed and there’s not that much information about them. Taste of Darkness starts off with Drake hanging out with Victoria. There was an immediate connection between them at the end of book 1…. Read more »


Review: Looking for Trouble by Victoria Dahl

Review: Looking for Trouble by Victoria Dahl

After reading and thoroughly enjoying Fanning the Flames, I couldn’t wait to read Looking for Trouble. We met Sophie in Fanning the Flames and she is a naughty girl under a good girl exterior. To say that Alex and Sophie were hot together is an understatement! First of all, Alex Bishop is a sexy mofo. Shaved head, tattoos, rides a motorcycle. Unf! I’m a sucker for a shaved/bald head. Sophie gives the appearance of a staid, button-up librarian but there’s… Read more »
