[Audiobook Review] Wanderlust by Lauren Blakely

I knew I was going to listen to Wanderlust for two reasons. Number one: I like Lauren Blakely’s style of writing.  She writes such witty touching romances.  Number two: it is co-narrated by Richard Armitage. I have loved Richard Armitage ever since I watched the British BBC miniseries, North and South. I am so glad I picked up this audiobook because it didn’t disappoint in story and in narration. I loved Grace Grant and her portrayal of Joy. She added a sense vulnerability to the character. Needless to say, I loved Richard Armitage’s portrayal of Griffin. I am not too… Read more »

I think as I get older I just don’t have time to power through books I personally don’t like. I usually don’t write a review for a book I decided not to finish. But, I read the blurb of Break Down thought that I would love it and accepted a review copy. I feel like I owe it to Break Down to review the half of the book I did read. Break Down is a male/male romance about a rugby player, named Liam, and the hot chef, named Lachlan, who steals his heart. I have not read a lot of… Read more »

I know this unrelated to this review but I just wanted to share a challenge that I have been trying out. This year I am going to read more outside of my go to genre, romance. I am going to try to read at least one or more horror, mystery or thriller book a month. This month for my thriller/horror read I decided to pick up Bird Box. Please don’t get me wrong in this review, I liked the story. I definitely, appreciate what the author was trying to do writing a world that is based on the fear of… Read more »

I really, really and I mean I really liked Stillhouse Lake. I liked it so much that I now have quite a few people in my office at work reading Stillhouse Lake right now. So, it should be no surprise, I was super excited to read the sequel Killman Creek. Killman Creek took off right where the Stillhouse Lake left off. Gwen is on the run and searching for her ex-husband now that he has escaped prison. With the help of Sam, Gwen decides to go after him. Of course, that is what you do when you don’t want to… Read more »

[Review] Judgment Road by Christine Feehan

I went into Judgment Road super excited because it had two things I like: written by Christine Feehan and it was a motorcycle club romance. Unfortunately, I think in the end it Judgment Road was just an okay read.  I understand some of the themes of a MC romance are going to remain the same for all book like alpha males and slang lingo. I was hoping for something different and this just felt like a rinse and repeat of every other MC romance I have read. I liked the paranormal twist of Judgment Road. It wasn’t enough to really… Read more »

[ARC Review] The Fortunate Ones by R.S. Grey

I thought this book was going to be a romantic comedy.  Some sweet sexy fluffy romance that I would fly right through, you know brain candy.  For some people that is probably exactly what this story was for them.  For me, though this was a classic case of: it’s not you it’s me.  Because, in the end there was way too much angst for a story that is advertised as a romantic comedy.  Once I got over my initial disappointment, I actually liked The Fortunate Ones.  This story ended up being a decent read.  Not bad, not great, but not a waste of time either.  , The story starts off with Brooke a… Read more »

[Review] Going Dark by Monica McCarty

What can I say about Going Dark after finally getting through it? Well, Going Dark is not a bad story but it definitely wasn’t a fantastic story.  Going Dark was just an okay story. It is one of those military A-Team type stories I have read quite a few times. A platoon goes missing or is blamed when something goes on a mission. In the case of Going Dark it is they go “missing” and it is assumed they were all killed in action. All is not right on the mission and the survivors must go into hiding. So, Dean… Read more »
