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 […]

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. […]

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. […]

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 […]

Hot Toy by Jennifer Crusie

<i>Hot Toy</i> by Jennifer Crusie

  Ya’ll, most of the time Crusie books are out of the park home runs. I am one of the rabid devotees of Bet Me and I have loved so many other of her books. This one, however, was not nearly as fun. The premise is both simple and ridiculous. We open on a Toy-R-Us-esque establishment […]

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 […]

Wilde at Heart by Tonya Burrow...

<i>Wilde at Heart</i> by Tonya Burrows

I am still dipping my toe into romantic suspense, if I’m honest. I read a few too many while in college that were pants and it put me off the whole sub genre. So as I’m working on building this blog, I decided to make sure to branch out into parts of romancelandia I’m not […]

The Good Girl by Mary Kubica

<i>The Good Girl</i> by Mary Kubica

  Okay. I hate to do this, but I’m going to start with the synopsis provided by the publisher. It’s the best way to find out if you’re going to be into The Good Girl or not. One night, Mia Dennett enters a bar to meet her on-again, off-again boyfriend. But when he doesn’t show, […]

Luckiest Girl Alive by Jessica...

<i>Luckiest Girl Alive</i> by Jessica Knoll

*Trigger Warnings: sexual violence, physical violence, gun violence* So I picked this one up because no one could seemingly stop talking about it. I heard very little, except that it was funny and twisty and dark in the ways that Gone Girl was. I was in need of a beach read for a weekend down […]

You by Caroline Kepnes

<i>You</i> by Caroline Kepnes

  You is a mindf*ck. A total and complete mindf*ck. In the best way. The story is written from Joe’s perspective and to Beck, his dream girl who he meets when she buys books in the East Village independent bookstore he manages. However, the relationship is not ever actually mutual. Joe is a crazed stalker who […]
