I love Sophie Jordan and I will read anything she writes!!! I liked Hell Breaks Loose but sadly I didn’t love this book. It started out as something I thought I would absolutely love but it ended up just being okay.   The President’s daughter is kidnapped. Grace is being held by a bunch of low life goons. Reid has just escaped prison to kill the man who sent him there. Of course, I don’t really need to explain where the story is going from here. It is one of those the enemy of my enemy type stories. Reid has… Read more »

I liked Nightshades. It was a very quick read. For this review, I am going to do something different. I think for such a fast short read my review is going to be short and sweet. I am going to list the things liked and the things I didn’t like about Nightshades.   Things I liked about Nightshades: It was short and therefore a very quick read. I liked the different take on vampires. These are not shiny misunderstood beings. The vampires are just like humans in a way. Some vampires are evil and some just want to do the… Read more »

[ARC Review] Shadow Rider by Christine Feehan

This book took me a while to finish. I have to say Stefano Ferraro gets it right about one thing; he is a hard man to love. In the end, I couldn’t help but like him and even sigh with happiness for Francesca and Stefano. Stefano is very alpha and kind of a throwback to the old alpha male ways.  No, Stefano isn’t a gangster but he is a throwback to Godfather ways when it comes to women.  He has this very dominating presence, demands nothing less than obedience, and of course, has no patience for people who question him. … Read more »

[ARC Review] Ride Hard by Laura Kaye

I have been in this mini reading slump. I knew I needed to read something that was full of romance. Something that would get my reading juices flowing again. I didn’t even know what this book was book was about but in the word of Shia Labeouf, I knew I just needed to “just do it” aka in my world just read it. Ride Hard was everything I was looking for to help get me back in the reading swing of things. I am a fan of Laura Kaye’s Hard Ink series. When I saw this book up for request… Read more »

[ARC Review] Nightstruck by Jenna Black

Nightstruck starts out really really creepy and that insidious feeling never lets go the whole way through. Imagine a place where inanimate objects can come alive and murder people on the streets. Imagine a dark magic that can infect people to the point they are killing each other on the streets. I really liked this book because parts of it made the hair on my arm stand up.   This review will be very short and sweet because I don’t want to give too much away. I think the best part of experience reading Nightstruck was that didn’t know too… Read more »

[ARC Review] All Chained Up by Sophie Jordan

This story wasn’t about a guy in prison that got framed. Nor, is it a story about a man trying to solve some problem with gangs when he gets out of prison. It is a story about a guy who made and has been paying for it ever since. Was this my favorite Sophie Jordan book? No. I can’t gush and love every book she writes. There wasn’t some big mystery or nonstop action. I didn’t end up hating this book it was just a sweet romance about two people learning to open up and find love. All Chain Up… Read more »

[ARC Review]Lady Bridget’s Diary by Maya Rodale

I am big fan of Maya Rodale’s historical romance novels. When I saw this book up for review, I just knew I had to read it. I was definitely not disappointed. It was just like in a good historical romance: cute cheesiness, kisses galore, and swoony lords. Plus this story is a Pride and Prejudice retelling with a handsome Darcy in a wet shirt.     Lady Bridget’s Diary was just the kind of read I searching for, meaning it is a light fluffy romance. The story is a Pride and Prejudice retelling so I don’t think I need to… Read more »

[ARC Review] The Rogue Not Taken by Sarah Maclean

I like this book a lot but I have come to expect nothing less from a Sarah Maclean book. The Rogue Not Taken had everything I look for in a historical romance: hot chemistry, witty dialogue, and of course a romance that can make me smile with joy.     The Rogue Not Taken is about a young woman named Sophie. Her and her sisters are known as the Soiled S or the Dangerous Daughters because their names are always in the scandal sheets. Their father bought their way into the aristocracy. The best thing I can compare them to,… Read more »

[ARC Review] Thicker Than Water by Brigid Kemmerer

After I have had more time to think about how I feel after reading this book, I find myself giving it more of a 3 star rating than a 4 star. I felt that the story started out strong. It is about a guy named Thomas who can’t remember a thing about his mother’s murder. He meets up with Charlotte the only person in town to give him the time of day and they begin looking into the death of his murder. I like the idea of a who done it murder mystery with some sexy romance thrown in. I… Read more »
