[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 »

[DNF Review] Break Down by Rebecca Norrine

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 »

[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] The Time in Between by Kristen Ashley

In the past two years I have become a huge Kristen Ashely fan.  I am not surprised that I didn’t just love this book.  I freaking loved this book!!! So, I am going to keep this review short and sweet to keep the gushing at a minimum.  The Time in Between was like Persuasion but done Kristen Ashley style.  Meaning it was about an alpha male that doesn’t like games.  And, a woman who is looking for her happily ever after.  Things are rocky in the beginning because they have a lot of baggage from the time in between.  Though, they never stopped… Read more »

[Review] Fallen Heir by Erin Watt

*Warning* This review does not have any Fallen Heir spoilers but does contain some spoilers regarding the first three book in the Royals series.     Don’t hate me but Easton is not my favorite Royal.   I think Reed and Ella are and always be my favorite characters. I have always thought Easton was a self-absorbed entitled jerk. Sure, he connected with Ella and became someone she could trust and a brother she never had. But, Easton has addiction issues that stem from mental health issues. He needs professional help. I am not saying that as a negative thing…. Read more »

[Review] Unknown by Wendy Higgins

There is something truly terrifying about an apocalypse setting that scares and fascinates me at the same time.  I think Wendy Higgins did a good job of building a truly scary world in Unknown.  I finished this book in two days.  I only put it down to sleep.  Even when I put the book down I still kept think about how frightening this book actually was.     Unknown starts out like any other contemporary love story.  A girl grows up with her brother and his best friend.  Then the brother’s best friend becomes her friend as well.  Of course,… Read more »

First let me say that I got this book out of my very first subscription box from The Bookworm Box. The Bookworm Box is a book subscription box that you order and receive once a month. The Bookworm Box was started by Colleen Hoover and other awesome people. The most awesome thing about The Bookworm Box is that all the proceeds after overhead costs go the charity of the month. When I heard about this book box I knew I had to sign up. The box is usually made up of adult contemporary romance novels. If that is not your… Read more »

[Audiobook Review] Under Different Stars by Amy A. Bartol

I started listening to this audiobook one day at work. I became so engrossed in the story that I literally could not put this book down. I came home and kept right on listening to this book instead of turning on the TV. For me, this book was so entrancing that I could not stop until I had listened to the very last sentence. Under Different Stars opens with Kricket working and living under the radar because she ran away from foster care. Then one day her life changes forever when men from another world start coming after her. They… Read more »

[Review] Steel World by B. V. Larson

Steel World is the first in the Undying Mercenaries series, and why are they called the undying mercenaries? Quite simple actually, because as long as they can be confirmed dead, and their files are on record, they can be revived / cloned / reconstructed, whatever word you choose for the process. All this is because Earth only has one trade good to sell to the galactic empire, the lives of its warriors. The universe in which Steel World takes place is interesting, and the main characters catch your attention. The story is highly believable, another race tries to prove they… Read more »

[Review] Koban: Rise of the Kobani by Stephen W. Bennett

The first book of the Koban series caught my attention. This second installment kept it and held me tightly to the story universe as it drove deeper into the characters. This third installment has me begging for even more. This book picks up not long after the events in the second book. The Kobani with their pirated alien ships are about to introduce themselves back into the human worlds and demonstrate what they can do to win the war against the alien invaders. Along the way they face a multitude of challenges and gain some allies, both human and alien…. Read more »
