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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Phoenix by Cecilia London

<i>Phoenix</i> by Cecilia London

I’m pretty much running out of words for this series. It’s brilliant and painful, overwhelming and fully realized. Cecilia London is an evil genius that excels at ripping my heart out while I’m fist-pumping with joy. I’ve written about the first three books in the series (Dissident, Conscience, Sojourn) here and in a few other places as well. […]

Coming Back by Lauren Dane

<i>Coming Back</i> by Lauren Dane

Before I say anything else, let’s get this out of the way right now: Dane’s Ink and Chrome series does not beat around any bushes. These are adults who know themselves and their sexual and romantic preferences and are not about to apologize to anyone. Coming Back is the epitome of that theme – it’s a triad […]

Sojourn by Cecilia London

<i>Sojourn</i> by Cecilia London

A few months back, I was checking emails from another blog I used to review for. Someone had pitched us a book that sounded like Hunger Games on steroids and I was intrigued. I snapped up the book before my colleagues could get to it and boy am I glad I did. That was the first […]

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 […]

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 […]
