Breaking a Legend by Sarah Rob...

<i>Breaking a Legend</i> by Sarah Robinson

Breaking a Legend surprised me a bit. I’m not always into MMA books, but wanted to pick this one up because… well, let’s be honest, that cover is not messing around. Like a lot of other MMA books I’ve read, our hero (Rory) is an ALPHA male who dotes on taking care of our heroine, who […]

Factory Man by Beth Macy

<i>Factory Man</i> by Beth Macy

We’ve all heard that the world is flat (thanks Friedman) and we all know that American manufacturing rarely takes place America anymore. What we often don’t talk about is what life is like in those places left behind. While this book claims to be about one man who saves a town (which he kind of does, […]

about that fling by Tawna Fens...

<i>about that fling</i> by Tawna Fenske

about that fling is a laugh-out-loud book about what matters at the core of relationships – honesty with self and others. Jenna, our heroine, works at a large health care system that is in serious crisis. Thus, they call in a crisis negotiator. The night before she has to start the process, she heads to […]

Mile High by Rebecca Chance

<i>Mile High</i> by Rebecca Chance

  Mile High is Rebecca Chance’s 8th book – she writes British bonkbusters, so American readers can be forgiven for not recognizing her name. Books about rich people behaving badly, usually multiple characters with overlapping storylines and sumptuous sex. On several levels, this one doesn’t disappoint, but I certainly wouldn’t call it my favorite of […]

Broken Open by Lauren Dane

<i>Broken Open</i> by Lauren Dane

  Y’all. Y’ALL. THIS BOOK. I fell so hard for Ezra and Tuesday. It’s a competition to be my favorite Lauren Dane book but this is currently laminated at the top of the list. I started reading this at the beach a few weeks ago and had to stop because I was with people I […]

The Best Kind of Trouble by La...

<i>The Best Kind of Trouble</i> by Lauren Dane

  The Best Kind of Trouble kicks off Dane’s trilogy about the Hurley brothers, their band Sweet Hollow Ranch and their love stories. I fell for these guys hook, line and sinker and ate all these books up one after another. Dane’s heroes are tattooed, pierced, gruff alphas who always find the women who call them […]

Rescue My Heart by Jill Shalvi...

<i>Rescue My Heart</i> by Jill Shalvis

  Rescue My Heart is the third in Shavis’s delightful “Animal Magnetism” series. This one is about Adam and Holly, who have quite the past, full of love and misunderstanding. When Holly’s dad goes missing in the mountains, she enlists Adam’s help and they begin the forced reconciliation. Adam is just freshly back from several […]

The Reasons to Stay by Laura D...

<i>The Reasons to Stay</i> by Laura Drake

  The Reasons to Stay, a Harlequin/Mills & Boon Super Romance, is a fabulous book that I enjoyed from cover to cover. It’s one of those that grabs you quickly and encourages you to invest in these people nearly immediately. Pris, our heroine, is not a lady who likes connections. However, life forces her hand […]

Baby, It’s Cold Outside ...

<i>Baby, It’s Cold Outside</i> by Probst, Chase, Proby, Anne, and Meader

Searching for You  Can a determined woman executive and a playboy billionaire survive being stranded together in a snowstorm? Jennifer Probst depicts an […]

The Sweetest Rain by Myra John...

<i>The Sweetest Rain</i> by Myra Johnson

One of the reasons I love reading is that I can learn about people and places I would have never known. Sometimes good escapist fictional fluff is lovely, but most of the time I love a book I can also feel wrapped by. Like a blanket of knowledge comforting me into a better person. When […]
