Must Love Wieners by Casey Gri...

<i>Must Love Wieners</i> by Casey Griffin

Yes, the puns are no joke. Yes, the title is a touch OTT. SBTB covered this issue way better than I ever could (prepare for snort laughing), so let’s just get that out of the way now. Because y’all, this book is delightful. A touch frustrating at times, but overall delightful. Piper is an aspiring […]

Dirty Work Anthology

<i>Dirty Work</i> Anthology

Amanda Heger, Harper St. George, and Tara Wyatt have teamed up to give us a romance anthology about dudes who work with their hands for a living. Blue collar, working class, call it what you want, but you shall find no billionaires herein. As with every anthology, I resonated with some of the stories more […]

To Have and To Hold by Lauren ...

<i>To Have and To Hold</i> by Lauren Layne

To Have and to Hold is the first full installment of Lauren Layne’s “Wedding Belles” series, focusing on a high-end wedding planning company in Manhattan. This kickoff focuses on Seth and Brooke and was delightful from beginning to end. Seth enters our story as the brother of a Wedding Belles bride, while Brooke is their […]

The Daredevil Snared by Stepha...

<i>The Daredevil Snared</i> by Stephanie Laurens

The Daredevil Snared is the third installment in Laurens’ recent quartet about the Frobisher brothers. This installment is about Caleb, the youngest brother, and Katherine, a women enslaved at a mine. The series is not one which can be read out of order, so if this is your first introduction to the Frobishers, turn back […]

Love Between the Covers

Love Between the Covers

In a wee bit of something different, I wanted to draw your attention to a movie being released today. “Love Between the Covers” is a documentary about romance novels. Y’all! I have been excited for this thing for yonks. It officially released today, July 12, and is available for purchase at Amazon and iTunes. Here’s […]

Royal Games by Sariah Wilson

<i>Royal Games</i> by Sariah Wilson

Royal Games is the latest installment in Wilson’s ‘Royals of Monterra’ series and, y’all, I thought it would be complete trope-nip to me. Royalty? Check, as this one deals with Prince Rafe. Hollywood? Check, as our hero and heroine met on a reality TV program. Small towns? Check, as all the action takes place in the […]

Under Your Skin by Shannyn Sch...

<i>Under Your Skin</i> by Shannyn Schroeder

Under Your Skin is the newest offering from Shannyn Schroeder, and is also a kick-off to her new series “For Your Love”. Our hero, Kai, is a closed-off tattoo shop owner with a past, while our heroine, Norah, is a pregnant, single lady looking for a reconnection with her family. When Kai’s mother has surgery and needs […]

Driven to Temptation by Melia ...

<i>Driven to Temptation</i> by Melia Alexander

Driven to Temptation is a fun and flirty romance with a lot of heat. It’s a forbidden love (boss-employee) with a touch of enemies-to-lovers (he initially hates her but that doesn’t last long) that would serve as the perfect poolside read this summer. Aiden is the owner of an engineering firm in Central Oregon whose […]

Chasing Lady Amelia by Maya Ro...

<i>Chasing Lady Amelia</i> by Maya Rodale

Have you ever wondered what reality TV would look like in Regency England? Like, what would the Kardashians be getting up to and how would they be portrayed? Ever wanted to read a book about a Regency scandal that went a little beyond someone getting caught in an orangerie? Then Chasing Lady Amelia is the book […]

No Stranger to Love by Pamela ...

<i>No Stranger to Love</i> by Pamela Aares

I think I’ve read all of the Tavonesi series, with the possible exception of a novella here and there as I tend to miss those. I was super hooked for the first few books, as they were all sports romances, and then my interest wandered as Aares started exploring tangentially connected members of the family. […]
