Review : Haven (Beards & Bondage, #1) by Rebekah Weatherspoon

Review : Haven (Beards & Bondage, #1) by Rebekah Weatherspoon

Rebekah Weatherspoon is a new to me author but I’ve been hearing about her books for a few months now. Needless to say, the hype was completely worth it. With Haven I didn’t really know what I was getting into. I knew I loved the cover but never read the synopsis. I just knew there was a burly mountain man and that was okay with me. Once I started reading Haven I had the hardest time putting it down. Shep and Claudia drew me into their world in a way that hasn’t happened to me in such a long time. […]

Review : Interborough (The Five Boroughs, #4) by Santino Hassell

Review : Interborough (The Five Boroughs, #4) by Santino Hassell

Raymond and David are back again and in the forefront of another Five Boroughs story. They’ve been along for the ride in every book since Sutphin Boulevard and got what we thought was their happily ever after in Sunset Park. But just like real life, not everything goes according to plan in romancelandia, and especially not in any of the Five Boroughs. There were many lingering thoughts floating around my head at the end of Sunset Park and I never really knew what to do with them. Raymond completely stole my heart but David left little to be desired for […]

Mini Review : Sunset Park (The Five Boroughs, #2) by Santino Hassell

Mini Review : Sunset Park (The Five Boroughs, #2) by Santino Hassell

Being the second book in any series is make or break if you ask my opinion, especially if the first was something as amazing as Sutphin Boulevard. But Sunset Park not only exceeding my expectations but blew any kind of “second-book slump” that could have made the book any lesser. Raymond warmed his way into my heart and David- well, I have a love/hate relationship with David. I love that he made Raymond happy but I didn’t care much for his character. Even so, Sunset Park is one of my favorite reads of the year and something I relate to […]

Review : Twelve Truths and a Lie by Christina Lee

Review : Twelve Truths and a Lie by Christina Lee

Oh, where to begin with this one. Twelve Truths and a Lie is definitely one of those books where I have so much to say and no idea how to say it. Most importantly though, did I enjoy it? Yes. Yes, I did. I devoured it in just a few short hours having a hard time putting it down. Aurora and Cameron made me smile, laugh, and at time get a little emotional. They built a connection based upon something greater than attraction and that’s something not very prevalent in romance nowadays. I only found out about Twelve Truths and […]

Review : That Thing Between Eli & Gwen by J.J. McAvoy

Review : That Thing Between Eli & Gwen by J.J. McAvoy

A while back I was searching for something new to read and Silvana told me about That Thing Between Eli & Gwen and I immediately looked it up. I was smitten with the blurb. Two people coming together after their respective fiancés run away together, and on Eli’s wedding day? I just knew I had to read it, and boy, am I glad I did! That Thing Between Eli & Gwen had me laughing, smiling, and frustratingly (and figuratively) banging my head against a wall! Eli and Gwen are so perfect for each other. He’s a respected New York neurosurgeon […]

Review : Leveling The Field (Gamers, #4) by Megan Erickson

Review : Leveling The Field (Gamers, #4) by Megan Erickson

Ethan’s story has been a long time coming, that’s for sure, and it was definitely worth the wait! Leveling the Field shows an Ethan Talley that was only hinted at in the past, but also gives up sides of a scarred (literally and figuratively) man who just needs that one thing that can jump start an internal revolution to finally accept that things may suck, but we can work through it. Enter Lissa Kingsman, photographer, and Ethan Talley whisperer. Lissa and Ethan have this instant connection that runs deeper than they realize. Their relationship starts out as nothing more than […]

Review : Right of First Refusal (Radleigh University, #2) by Dahlia Adler

Review : Right of First Refusal (Radleigh University, #2) by Dahlia Adler

Dahlia Adler has quickly become one of my go-to authors. Her writing always leaves me with a renewed love of New Adult. She proves that the category isn’t all tired cliché after cliché. She obviously puts thought and effort and love into her characters and that is what helps them to become not only realistic, but people who will live on in our hearts for a long time. Right of First Refusal is so much more than a sports romance, so much more than a second chance at love romance, it’s about standing firm in who you are. It’s about […]

Review : Sutphin Boulevard (The Five Boroughs, #1) by Santino Hassell

Review : Sutphin Boulevard (The Five Boroughs, #1) by Santino Hassell

Sutphin Boulevard is one of those novels where the blurb does it no justice and reading it makes you rethink everything you know about realism in romance novels. Sutphin Boulevard may be my first Santino Hassell novel (I don’t count Strong Signal as it was co-written with Megan Erickson) but it surely will not be my last. Hassell gets down to the grittiest of what it is to be friends, lovers, and maybe somewhere in between. Michael is the kind of character that I love. He’s down to Earth in a way that’s not naive but not wholly jaded either. […]

Review : More Than Fashion (Chasing the Dream, #3) by Elizabeth Briggs

Review : More Than Fashion (Chasing the Dream, #3) by Elizabeth Briggs

Honesty time? I have a love-hate relationship with the Chasing the Dream series. I love the stories but I always find myself wandering because of the pacing or something happens that just slows the book down too much. That was definitely not the case with More Than Fashion. Once I started (Thanks Vangie!) I could not put my phone down to stop reading. I had to know what was going to happen next. I had to know if Julie was finally going to let Gavin in. I just had to know everything. Similar to More Than Music, More Than Fashion […]

Audiobook Review : The Law of Moses (The Law of Moses, #1) by Amy Harmon

Audiobook Review : The Law of Moses (The Law of Moses, #1) by Amy Harmon

I don’t even know where to begin writing a review for this book. The Law of Moses is a force to be reckoned with. I ran a whole gamut of emotions while reading. I loved, laughed, and cried. I was frustrated and angry. If you could feel it, I felt it while reading. I even cried! While this has been happening more and more lately, I still rarely cry while reading. Moses and Georgia, their story, and just them, they touched me in a way that will stick with me for a long time to come. I completely fell in […]

Review : All Played Out (Rusk University, #3) by Cora Carmack

Review : All Played Out (Rusk University, #3) by Cora Carmack

Oh, I really wanted to like All Played Out, I really did. I went into it thinking I would love it because it’s Cora and Rusk and Torres just seemed like the kind of guy I’d love and Nell sounded like my kind of heroine. Sadly though, I ended up not only not enjoying the book but wondering why I was still reading. Let’s start with Mateo, okay? I found myself liking him. I really did. He was charming, funny and let’s be honest, hot. He was everything I thought he would be plus surprisingly insightful, which truly surprised me. […]

Blog Tour : Two of Hearts (Golden Arrow, #1) by Christina Lee

Blog Tour : Two of Hearts (Golden Arrow, #1) by Christina Lee

In Whisper to Me we were introduced to Dakota Nakos, Kai’s sister and Rachel’s best friend growing up. We also got to know a little bit about Shane Garrity, Kai’s best friend and the subtle beginning to his relationship with Dakota. In Two of Hearts we learn what really happened between the two and how just because we may screw things up in the past, there can be a second chance at love. I found myself feeling so much for Dakota. I have no idea what it would be like to lose a parent so senselessly, to have to take […]
