[Review] Shacking Up by Helena Hunting

I think there is certain style one expects from a Helena Hunting book.  It has to be funny.  It has to be charming.  It has to be so sexy that you can’t read the book in a public place.  I think that Shacking Up delivers all that.  It was cute, very sexy, and parts of it had me cracking up. It’s also predictable and very cheesy. But, I think that is what I liked about Shacking Up.  It is not the kind of read that is going to make you think about it days after.  It is what is and… Read more »

Can, I just after finishing this book I was like, WOW!  I think I liked White Hot even better than Burn For Me and that is saying something since I loved Burn For Me.  This series has it all: hot sexy fun times, action galore, and an intense mystery that just keeps bigger and bigger. I love a book that can make feel so many feels.  White Hot definitely kept me on the edge my seat.  One minute I was swooning and the next I was biting my nails.  White Hot was fabulous I could not put it down and… Read more »

[ARC Review] When It’s Real by Erin Watt

I don’t think I have stayed up all night reading a book in one sitting in a while. I have to say after my all night binge read, When It’s Real is fantastic!     I have to admit I really wanted to read this book because I love Erin Watt. I know the description sounds really cheesy almost like Justin Bieber fan fiction. I am here to say that this book is super good and super addictive. I fell in with Vaughn and Oakley so much that I could not this book down. Even though this book is about… Read more »

[Review] Optimists Die First by Susin Nielsen

I liked Optimists Die First but I didn’t love it was a solid 3.5 star read. It is a story about grief. It is a story about the guilt we feel after grief. It is a story about the coping mechanisms we develop to deal with grief. I think the story handles the grief aspect very well. Because, one thing is for certain grief changes a person. I will get personal for a minute. When I was 11 my grandpa was diagnosed with cancer. For three years I watched him try to fight it, struggle with and eventually die from… Read more »

OMG this book is amazing!!! Like if my life didn’t get in the way I would not have put this book down amazing!!!!  I can not express how much I loved this book but I will try.     I loved Marco and he might have made a book boyfriend list I may or may not have.         The Lovely Reckless is sexy, a tear jerker, and most of all a fantastic story!!! What I loved most about this book was the message: save yourself because you are the only who can. It has been a year… Read more »

[ARC Review] The Diabolic

I have to say, for a book with such a simple premise, it sure went pear shaped quickly and continued to do so without fully righting itself. We open on a small, biologically engineered girl named Nemesis. Though, what form of monster picked that name for a small girl, I will never know. Were this a Robin Hobb book, I would consider that quite an ill omen, especially considering what form the end of the book takes. Did they just throw a bunch of adjectives in a pool and pull one out? All Diabolics seem to be named according to… Read more »

I really liked this book.   I started this book not knowing what to expect but from the page I was hooked.  It was sexy as all get out.  But, it had depth too.   That makes Fly With Me my favorite kind of romance.   I really liked this story about a whirlwind romance and deciding if you can make it work for love.       The thing I liked most about this book is that it doesn’t glamorize what being a military wife, fiancée, or girlfriend is all about.   It is not a 24hr fantasy staring a hot guy in… 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 »

This book took me a while to get through, not because it was bad, but it started off very slow for me and life kept taking me away from it. However, once I got past the first few chapters the adventure started to pick up. How long did it take to read I can hear you asking, sadly far too long as this was handed to me by the publisher at BEA some time ago. The main characters are the rouge Rodrick and his sword, Hrym. How can a sword be a character, well when it talks, schemes with his… Read more »

Sometimes I think you have to be the mood for the book you are reading.  At first when I started reading this book I thought it was going to be another Sherlock Holmes retelling and I guess I wasn’t in the mood for it.  I was finally able to into the groove of this book and I ended up liking this well enough.  If Trouble is a Friend of Mine was a movie I would say I liked it but would recommend it as a rental. It was basically light fluff, good and decent but something you watch on Netflix when you just… Read more »
