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. […]

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 […]

Acute Reactions by Ruby Lang

<i>Acute Reactions</i> by Ruby Lang

  Acute Reactions is a contemporary romance set in the Pacific Northwest (which I’m beginning to think is the law for contemporary romances these days…) about two fairly broken folks who find love. On the surface, it’s that simple. There are no motorcycle gangs here, no MMA fighters, just two professional people with parental baggage […]

Within Reach by Sarah Mayberry

<i>Within Reach</i> by Sarah Mayberry

  I first heard about Sarah Mayberry‘s work from the Smart Bitches Trashy Books podcast (a favorite!) and scurried to my library website to get whatever book I could. Within Reach was the first one available and quickly cemented my love of Mayberry. This book has stuck with me and considering how many books I read, to […]

The story opens with Clare – the middle sister – finally finding her backbone and kicking out her long-time cheating husband. Instead of giving in to the fear that has governed her, she […]

House Trained by Jackie Boucha...

House Trained is women’s fiction novel about Alex, an interior decorator, her husband, Barry and their dog Marie. A committed child-free couple, their house is like a shrine to Alex’s exquisite tastes and one she is exceptionally proud of. She finds the brood being raised by her sister to be unnecessarily messy and annoying and […]

A Week at the Lake by Wendy Wa...

<i>A Week at the Lake</i> by Wendy Wax

  I normally love Wax’s books. Her previous ones have been largely about women and their friendships through odd circumstances or despite them. This one was enjoyable – don’t get me wrong – it was just a liiiiiiitle more angsty than I found fully necessary. The angst comes from keeping secrets, and regular readers know […]

The Marriage Season by Linda L...

<i>The Marriage Season</i> by Linda Lael Miller

  The Marriage Season is  – I’m sorry to say it – just fine. And “fine” is one of the most annoying reviews I know how to write. There’s nothing overtly wrong with it, there’s nothing overtly fantastic – it was a good distraction from life for a few hours. If Miller’s writing is a […]
