Review : Nico (Ruin & Revenge, #1) by Sarah Castille

Review : Nico (Ruin & Revenge, #1) by Sarah Castille

Sarah Castille takes readers on a wild ride of suspense, intrigue, and romance so crazy it should be downright criminal. Mob/Mafia stories are like crack to me and Nico definitely tops the list. Nico had me on the edge of my seat from page one and I couldn’t put down Nico and Mia’s story until I was done. And even then I was nearly crying because it was over. Nico Toscani may have been his father’s bastard but he was groomed to become the head of the Toscani family as not only the first son of the first son, but […]

Review : Blurred Lines (Love Unexpectedly, #1) by Lauren Layne

Review : Blurred Lines (Love Unexpectedly, #1) by Lauren Layne

I’ve never read a Lauren Layne novel before and I could hang my head with how much I’ve been missing. Blurred Lines hooked me from the first word until the last. A quintessential romantic comedy that had me laughing and smiling to just aggravated with Parker and Ben’s hard-headedness. Parker and Ben have been friends for years. Best friends. They never went beyond that but they never wanted to. That all changes when Parker is unexpectedly dumped by her longtime boyfriend. Parker wanted to explore casual sex but in the end it wasn’t for her. She needed someone she had […]

First Person vs Third Person Point of View

First Person vs Third Person Point of View

There’s a big debate over first person and third person point of view Don’t ask me why there’s such a debate over reading first person versus third person point of view because I don’t really know why. Yes, I understand preference but there are some people who just do not read one or the other. My personal preference is third but I still read my share of first. I want to take a look at both POVs, and maybe I all-time favorite second person, and talk about why there’s such a divide. What is first person point of view? I’m […]

Review : Full Measures (Flight & Glory, #1) by Rebecca Yarros

Review : Full Measures (Flight & Glory, #1) by Rebecca Yarros

Full Measures, what can I say about this book that hasn’t been said before? Ember and Josh’s story left me heartbroken, wistful, but by the end, full of hope. I can’t even imagine what it would be like to lose a parent, especially in such a sacrificial way, let alone have my whole life come crumbling down afterwards. Rebecca Yarros created a world that left me wanting more. Ember was a lovely character to me. She was young, but strong. Yes, she definitely made a lot of mistakes but she is one of those NA characters that actually act their […]

Review : To Tempt a SEAL (Sin City SEALs, #1) by Sara Jane Stone

Review : To Tempt a SEAL (Sin City SEALs, #1) by Sara Jane Stone

There’s something about books set in Las Vegas that I just love. I don’t know if it’s the endless possibilities or the thrill of the environment, but Vegas books will always have my heart. To Tempt a SEAL takes a Vegas setting and adds in another of my favorite romance aspects- Navy SEALs. Strong, agile, best the Navy has to offer, Navy SEALs. Growing up it’s hard to know what you want to do with your life, especially when you don’t have any stability. Lucia Lewis knew what it’s like to lack that stability, that focus in her life. Going […]

Review : Ricochet (Addicted, #1.5) by Krista & Becca Ritchie

Review : Ricochet (Addicted, #1.5) by Krista & Becca Ritchie

I had no idea what I was getting into when I read Addicted to You. Kim had read it and loved it and kept trying to get me to read it. I was completely floored when I read it. The feels… I couldn’t express how it affected me. I have a storied history of addiction in my family and it hit way too close to home. So much so that it’s been almost a year before I revisited the series with Ricochet. I adored the characters and I wanted to read more about them but it was just hard for […]

Review : Daring Fate (Silver Tip Pack, #1) by Megan Erickson

Review : Daring Fate (Silver Tip Pack, #1) by Megan Erickson

Daring Fate has all the trappings of a romance that I’d love. M/M coupled with the supernatural, 3-alarm blazing heat, and sprinkled with the awesomeness that only Megan Erickson can bring. Waking up chained was not something Reese expected but it seemed like destiny had other plans for the were. All he wanted in life was to keep his family, his brother and sister, safe but he feels as though he’s failed. When he finds out he’s in the den of the Silver Tip Were pack things take a turn for the fated. Dare hasn’t been the alpha for all […]

What’s better than one new Sarina & Elle book?

What’s better than one new Sarina & Elle book?

Are you ready for TWO new Sarina & Elle books? You may remember last year Sarina and Elle published a lovely romance named HIM. I fell so hard for Jamie and Wes, they were my everything. Along came the sequel, US, not long after. While I was not a fan of US it did introduce us readers to the character of Blake Riley, Wes’s NFL teammate. Are you ready for the WAGS series covers? About Good Boy: (expected pub date: 01/31/2017) Hosting her brother’s wedding for an MVP guest list is the challenge of Jess Canning’s life. Already the family […]

Review : An Untouchable Christmas (Untouchables, #2) by Cindy Skaggs

Review : An Untouchable Christmas (Untouchables, #2) by Cindy Skaggs

Let’s start by being honest, Untouchable may not have been my favorite book last year in the romance aspect but it sure was up there in the suspense aspect. FBI agents, Mob entanglements, and lust? Definitely a combination for success in my book. We get more of Sofia and Logan in An Untouchable Christmas and I have to say, I like them more and more the more I read about them. Six months after the events of Untouchable it’s Christmas time for our heroes. Sofia is trying to live a normal life with Logan but finds it hard to connect […]

Review : My Strongest Weakness by Brighton Walsh

Review : My Strongest Weakness by Brighton Walsh

New Adult meets 90’s nostalgia in Brighton Walsh’s My Strongest Weakness. As my first story from Walsh I wasn’t sure what to expect but I was highly satisfied. An opposites attract trope mixed with all the things I miss from growing up in the 90’s had me laughing, cringing, and falling in love with Tia and Mason. Tia is that girl you look at and can’t help but think “Why?” about. She’s a bit grunge, a bit goth, and kind of emo as well. As a film student she’s been filming her fellow students about what makes them choose the […]
